While it’s mostly in our name, we’re going to kick off our blog with a general overview about what exactly it is we do at We Buy Ugly Airplanes, and the things we have to offer. Keep reading to learn the ins and outs of our business, and if you’re just here to sell your airplane or find some aircraft parts, head over to our homepage.
Wondering How To Sell Your Airplane?
Owning an aircraft is one of the most incredible things you can do. Flying is an unmatched experience, and for us, it provides an incredible sensation of freedom. That being said, aircraft are still vehicles at the end of the day. This means that they’ll break down and become endless projects, that people will get new planes, and even that at times some people will need to hang up their pilot goggles.
For those situations, we’re here to help. We Buy Ugly Airplanes will buy your plane from you no matter the situation. Is your plane completely grounded, and you don’t have any way to get it fixed? We’ll buy it! Maybe you haven’t been able to fly your plane in years, and just can’t afford to continue to pay hangar fees. We’ll buy those planes too! Here is a more extensive list of the planes we’ll buy:
- Damaged Or Crashed Planes Without Insurance
- Planes That Aren’t Safe To Fly
- Planes With Engines Nearly Over Engine TBO
- Planes That Seem To Be A Never Ending Project
- Planes That Have High Hangar Costs
- Planes Owners Need Or Want To Sell
How The Aircraft Buying/Selling Process Works
If you’re interested in selling your aircraft to us, you’re probably wondering how our process works. In short, simply fill out the form you can find on our homepage. However, keep reading to learn about the qualities we base our offers on.
First and foremost, we’ll need your name and contact information, so we can provide you with our offer after we receive and assess your situation. Next, you’ll have to provide us with the make and model of your aircraft. This allows us to get a baseline number of what your aircraft is worth.
Then, we’ll need to know the total airframe time, the plane’s engine model, its TSMOH, and its total time. This helps us to evaluate and get a well-informed estimate as to how much the guts of your plane are worth. Then, we’ll have you provide information about the outside of your plane such as if it has hail damage.
We will also have you inform us as to whether or not you have flight logs, a bill of sale, and data tags. Finally, you’ll let us know where you plane is located, provide some photos of your aircraft, and fill out any relevant information that wasn’t covered in our questionnaire. This can include anything from notable parts in your aircraft to specific damage or the reasons you’re selling.
While it may sound complicated when it’s written out, it’s actually quite simple. We just need the general information about the status of your aircraft so we can provide a fair buying price that helps everyone out.
BAS Part Sales
On the other side of our business, we do aircraft part sales based out of Greeley, Colorado. That’s why we do our due diligence to understand the state of your plane and the parts in it. We love pulling planes apart, salvaging the good parts, and letting them continue to perform their jobs for another flying enthusiast.
