Trust RidgeAire to help you with your bank-owned aircraft

Aircraft are highly specialized assets, so when a repossession occurs, or an aircraft becomes bank-owned, RidgeAire can help you liquidate that asset for top dollar.

We’ve bought and sold aircraft domestically and internationally for decades. Every day, we’re in the market, matching buyers and sellers. We have a proven system that can take an aircraft in any condition and prepare it for retail sale, and get it delivered to its new owner.

No matter your priority, we have an option that can help!

Bank Sale Aircraft Options

Direct Purchase

RidgeAire buys and sells aircraft year round. We monitor market trends, have deep ties with our dealer network, and a roster of satisfied customers. If the aircraft your institution is trying to sell is the right fit, we can make an offer to directly purchase the aircraft from you.

Full Service Brokerage

Owners, pilots, and institutions may only buy or sell an aircraft once every few years. We’re involved in dozens of transactions every single year. We use a proven sales system that delivers results for our clients, matching buyers and sellers no matter where they are in the world. We can pick up the aircraft, deep clean it, hanger it, and bring it to market in full retail condition. All your institution has to do is approve the work that needs to be done, and accept the offer that we bring.

Off Market Sale

Some clients prefer to keep the aircraft close to their institution and sell it as-is, where-is. We can work with our network of dealers to find the right buyer who would be willing the buy the aircraft as it sits. Although this doesn’t bring top dollar for the aircraft, it does make sense for certain institutions and aircraft.
