I am pleased to recommend Indy Air Sales as an excellent broker for selling an airplane. When my husband passed away, I was left with a Luscombe that I did not want nor had the expertise to sell. I called Pat Robinson at Indy Air Sales. Speaking with Pat, gave me confidence that my plane would be appropriately valued. He also made it clear to me what the commission for the sale would be.
All of the details of the sale were handled with ease, from picking up the plane at my local airport, to handling the paperwork. I received payment very promptly. I really could not have done this on my own and would highly recommend Indy Air Sales to others. Please feel free to use me as a reference.
I would like to provide testimonial as to my experience with Mark Mclaughlin in selling my 1970 Bonanza V3SB.
First off a little background on my experience prior to having Mark broker my aircraft. As one might expect, the market for buyers of aircraft between 2008 and present is full of predatory buyers. The economic climate forced many owners to sell. Buyers were acutely aware of this and often made ridiculously low offers.
I, on the other hand, was not in this situation. I simply chose to sell my aircraft because I had work and family obligations that just didn’t leave me enough time to fly.
My airplane was in mint condition, full of the latest avionics and original interior. I tried selling my aircraft with 3 other brokers, all promising to sell the airplane for a very high price and in short order. Each broker came up short, if at all. I tried selling it on my own by listing it on Trade-A-Plane and ASO.com. Each time the contract or listing expired with zero results.
I came to know Mark after getting frustrated with other brokers and my own attempts of selling the airplane.
Mark’s promises were not all that different from the other brokers ….with one exception ….he delivered exactly what he said he would do. Once I signed the broker agreement, I gave Mark the keys, and logbooks. Mark analyzed my airplane and installed equipment and we agreed on a minimum sales price.
After that, it was approximately three weeks until Mark called me with an offer. One more phone call from Mark with some negotiations post pre-buy inspection, and a few signatures on the sales agreement ….and it was done. Start to finish Mark delivered every-thing he said he would ….and after close to 2 years of trying on my own … Mark had it sold in less than 4 weeks.
I can say with 100% I would recommend using Mark to sell your aircraft. Mark and I probably had a total of 5 phone conversations. The process was simple and hassle free.
If you want to sell your airplane, Mark is the solution. Feel free to contact me if you want more details or have any questions
I am writing this letter of recommendation of the Indy Air Sales, LLC. I recently contacted Pat Rob-inson to broker the sale of my personal airplane. He picked up my aircraft, called me regularly with the progress of the probable sale and sold it within 7 days. There were no surprises or unexpected clauses and did all that he said he would do. He got a good price for the airplane and I received my money in a timely manner.
I did recommend his company to a friend of mine and he also sold his airplane within 15 days. I would call Pat again ifI had another plane to sell.
I would readily recommend your company to a future customers. I thought you to be an “honest broker” and that is important because I suspect that many aircraft buyers are not really knowledgeable and they frankly need help. Sort of like buying jewelry. You really hope your dealer is treating you fairly.
I thought you were offering me a solid airplane at a good price. I found you honest and straight forward. You were always easy to contact returning telephone calls and emails promptly. Like the pilot in Bowling Green, I declare you an honest broker and recommend you without hesitation
I have bought 33 airplanes in my flying career, but no transaction was more professional and pleasant than my latest with Indy Air. The Skylane had been sitting, unused for several years before Indy acquired it. Yes, there were “red flags”, yes, there were unknowns, but you were completely up front with all the issues and helped me address each in a reasonable manner. Without your forthrightness, I would probably have purchased another airplane. As it worked out, well, it worked out well. I got a very good Skylane at a reasonable price and all elements of the sale, from your side, were handled with the utmost in professionalism and competency. Thank you and I sincerely hope we can have further dealings in the future.
