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.
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.

RidgeAire has helped pilots and owners find planes that meet their needs for over 50 years. We have the experience and industry connections that allow us to source or sell airplanes around the world.
We know airplanes and we work hard to understand our customers. The aviation market is complex, so we've simplified the experience for our clients. They can relax while we work hard to get them to the closing table.
We love planes, but people are our priority. We’re a family-owned business and we continue to treat our customers like family. It's how we were raised and it's how we like to do business.
