What to Consider Before Buying

Before you set your heart on a particular aircraft, it’s important to consider some key factors to ensure you are making the right decision for yourself. Below is a list of essentials to consider as you browse for your perfect fit.


It’s no secret that buying an airplane is a big purchase. Before you decide on the aircraft of your dreams, it’s a good idea to set aside a realistic price range that is within reasonable means. When outlining the parameters of your budget, consider your savings and how much money you can realistically set aside. Also, check to see what aircraft loans you may qualify for.

Size & Performance

The size, performance abilities, and overall type of aircraft you choose should fit your lifestyle and travel ambitions. What are you planning on using your aircraft for? Think about if you’re planning cross-country vacations or business trips one state over, as the distance you wish to travel will affect your options. How often will you be using your aircraft? These factors will determine the performance abilities to consider. Will you be regularly bringing guests with you on your travels? And if so, how many? Your answers to these questions will gauge the size and number of seats you should look for in your prospective aircraft.

Maintenance Records

Aircraft maintenance is key for ensuring safe, reliable flights. Therefore, it’s imperative to confirm that the maintenance records for the aircraft you’re considering purchasing are up to date.

Maintenance Costs

Keeping an aircraft well-maintained is an important responsibility. Be sure to familiarize yourself with its preventative and annual maintenance requirements and the cost for each. It’s important to be aware of the necessary maintenance and willing to put in the time and money needed to keep your aircraft in pristine flying condition.


Similar to maintenance, insurance will be a recurring cost. To get an idea of how much you’ll need to budget for this annually, get a few quotes from different insurance companies and ask for sample policies.


Figure out where you would like to store your aircraft. You’ll need to rent or purchase a hangar to keep your plane safe when not in use.

Pre-purchase Inspection

Invest in having a qualified and trusted mechanic complete a pre-purchase inspection of the aircraft you are interested in. A pre-purchase inspection can help you feel confident in the quality of the aircraft before you officially seal the deal.

Fly Before You Buy

One of the best ways to ensure that you are happy with a potential aircraft is to take it for a test flight before you finalize your decision. Operating an aircraft before buying it will allow you to ensure all systems and equipment are working properly.

Personal Preferences

Ask yourself what kind of aircraft you are looking for. Would you prefer a new or used aircraft? Both have pros and cons, so weighing your options will help determine which will best meet your needs. Additionally, be honest with yourself if you have any other preferences on specific models and sizes. While it’s important to consider various factors before making a purchase, at the end of the day, you want to ensure you are happy with your decision and getting the aircraft you want.
