Who We Are

Hanger Aviation Sales

Hanger Aviation Sales is an aircraft broker service based on Charleston, SC.

At Hangar Aviation our goal is to provide services to aircraft owners and those wishing to become aircraft owners. We realize that the large number of aircraft we purchase annually gives us a unique insight into the market. Part of our service is relaying what we are seeing in the industry market to customers at no cost. We invite the public to call us with any aircraft related questions or concerns and we will use our general aviation expertise To answer the question to the best of our ability. Often if we are unable to answer the question we will be able to provide a further resource outside of Hanger Aviation Office for the aircraft owner. Hangar Aviation provides this service at no charge. A factor unique to Hanger Aviation is the fact that we own our entire inventory. What this means is that we have been the buyer of the aircraft we are now selling. We have performed a pre-buy and we have purchased the aircraft with all of its positives and negatives. Once we purchase the aircraft we attempt to remove as many of the negatives as possible. We do this so that when a potential buyer arrives to view an aircraft we can present that aircraft with as many discrepancies resolved as possible. As an added layer of security for the buyer we offer a 30 day moneyback guarantee on all purchases. We want every customer to leave fully satisfied with their purchase so that they become repeat customers and promote Hanger Aviation to their fellow airman at their home field.

With the current market pace of sales, it has been difficult to keep planes on the ramp for very long. Buying aircraft and bringing them back to Charleston to sell used to mean that we would have 8 to 15 aircraft on the ramp at any given time. This is no longer the case. In today’s market our aircraft arrive back at JZI and are sometimes sold the next day or the next week. We are going to begin offering notification of aircraft purchases even before the planes have arrived back in Charleston so that potential buyers can monitor our website and make decisions prior to the general public being informed through advertising. Most of our advertising is done in Trade A Plane and Controller. However, in the future Hangar Aviation is going to begin efforts at advertising our aircraft and other aircraft that we do not own for sale on our website.
