Generally speaking, an aircraft broker is a salesperson who has well established connections with multiple aircraft owners and operators. He serves many functions, and among the most important is to find the buyer the right seller and introduce them to one another. With a broker’s help, the buyer can end up with the right plane at the best price possible.
There are many advantages to using an aircraft broker. However, before you work with one, you need to ensure that he is knowledgeable in his field and has plenty of experience in the aviation industry. Tales abound of so-called brokers who didn’t have the slightest idea what they were supposed to do and ended up mismanaging transactions left and right.
