Buy your next airplane from a trusted dealer

RidgeAire has been helping people find and purchase airplanes since 1975. In that time, we’ve become a global leader in airplane sales. Since the year 2000, we’ve bought, sold, or brokered over 450 airplanes.

We also understand that plane sales are people-oriented. That’s why, alongside our experience, we always strive to ensure our customers have a good experience, no matter if they’re buying or selling.

We believe people are more important than airplanes, and we live that every day by committing ourselves to our clients.

Buying From RidgeAire

When you buy an aircraft from RidgeAire, you'll love our transparent process. We take our time to get aircraft in our inventory ready for sale. Records are organized and digitized, deferred maintenance is completed, and all of the information that we have is shared with you. Aircraft on the market today are often decades old; we work hard to get them ready to fly and to make it easy for you to evaluate an airplane before you purchase it.
