Hello Murry,

Working with you was a great experience. I would absolutely consider using you for any of my business in the future. I would also recommend you to anyone considering the services that you and AirplanesUSA provide.

I have only gotten one flight in my Cessna T210 thus far but it was pretty awesome!  I hope to fly quite a bit this weekend.

It was a pleasure to get to know you.  I hope to cross paths with you soon.  Thank you!

To whom it may concern,

Manny Camacho of AirplanesUSA brokered the sale of our Aztec.

It was a difficult job since the aircraft had not been flown for a year and was out of annual. Manny stuck to this through thick and thin and got it sold!

I recommend Manny and his association highly!

(This customer purchased a Mooney 231 in Florida and flew it to Chile):

Dear Manny and friends,

The flight home ended in the most wonderful way.  Four planes from my Aero Club joined us on our final leg.  Our ferry flight ended in a very nice formation!

Once we landed, we were treated to a nice BBQ and some wine.

The “Queen of our Hangar” is now at her new home.  She performed as expected and beyond!  Everything worked just fine.

The Mooney received a warm welcome and my mechanic was very impressed with the airplane. He had only words of approval as he opened various inspection covers.

Thank you for your very professional work and commitment to excellence!

Best wishes.

Dear Manny,

Thank you for your efficient and fantastic service in regards to the sale of my Piper Arrow and Cherokee 180.

You made the entire process simple and hassle-free. Plus, you were able to get my full asking price!

The Aircraft Title and Escrow Company that you suggested was very professional as well.

You are not only a great salesman, Manny, you are an honest one! I will surely recommend you to all of my friends and I look forward to using your services again as soon as I am ready to purchase my next airplane!

Thank you,

Dear Manny,

I want to thank you for making the sale of my aircraft not only a pleasurable transaction but, as you mentioned in a note to me, the beginning of a friendship.

Your honesty, wit and advice are always welcome!

Without hesitation, I would recommend AirplanesUSA Aircraft Sales to anyone looking to sell an airplane. As a fellow pilot, I appreciated your thorough, methodical approach and I am sure the same would be reflected in any aircraft that I might purchase from you in the future as well.

All the best,

Manny,

Thank you for all of your help and patience as we worked through my purchase process. This was all new to me as a first-time aircraft buyer.

You can be sure that when there is a plane to be sold or bought by me or my pilot friends, I will recommend you and AirplanesUSA.

Dear Manny and Rey,

Thanks so much for everything. We truly love the airplane and were telling people all across the country that we bought it from friends in Florida. And, we truly feel that way. Thanks so much for all of your help. You both were terrific.

Thanks for an amazing dinner and the food was good too! It was wonderful meeting your wives.

We had such an adventure crossing the country! Wow! You will have to make a trip to San Diego so that we can tell you all about it and return the hospitality. But, take a bigger plane! 🙂

Thanks so much,

Thank you Manny,

For all you did to make our purchase of our Cessna 206 possible.

Even though we live in South Dakota and our plane was in Florida, you made it seem like we were buying from our local FBO. From picking us up at the airport and bringing us to N307AC, to answering all our questions that first time aircraft buyers have, you were great!

Thanks for being patient,

Manny,

The flight (to Canada) went perfectly and was a real pleasure.

I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance with the purchase of my aircraft. I appreciated your assistance and approach.

Hi Manny!

Your handling of all of the details made the sale of our Piper Lance as painless as possible. I really appreciated that you kept all of your commitments and went out of your way to complete the transaction.

Hi again Manny:

Despite two successfull long-distance aircraft transactions with you, we still hardly know each other. Yet, I just want to tell you a couple of things.

First, I am a Christian man and truly believe that God worked on my behalf in attaining such a quick sale with such a nice person. So I give Him the credit.

Second, I know He blessed me with you as my broker and want to thank you for your efforts in this matter. I REALLY appreciate your services.

Lord willing, I would like to own another airplane in the future and, if and when the time is right, I plan on calling you again!

May God bless you and your family.

Manny,

I would not hesitate to recommend you to broker an aircraft for anyone.

You do your homework on the aircraft that you are selling and the fact that you have plenty of years behind you as a pilot makes you even more knowledgeable and equitable to your business.

You are one of the nicest, honest and sincerest fellows I have ever met, especially when it comes to a business acquaintance.

Thank you,

To Whom It May Concern:

It has been my privilege to work with Manny Camacho, of AirplanesUSA; regarding our recent purchase of a Piper Saratoga II TC. Manny handled our transaction with a high degree of integrity, professionalism, and diligence. His attention to detail and his unwavering dedication made the acquisition and transition of our aircraft seamless. We at LanMark International, Inc. appreciate, very much, his assistance and professionalism.

If you have any questions or concerns about Manny, I´d be more than happy to discuss my professional experience of him.

Dear Manny,

I want to thank you for the many excellent ways in which you have handled the sale of both my “Cessna 206” and the “Ercoupe”. You have gone above and beyond what I expected from you as an aircraft broker.

I would be very proud to give your excellent performance a reference to any future client. Thanks again for a job well done!

Your Very Happy Client,

Dear Manny,

As I have said several times before, I was very lucky to find you!

Doing an aircraft transaction like this, thousands of miles apart, is terrifying and I could not do without an honest person behind me.

I really appreciated all your help. Thanks for everything.

Dear Manny and Steve,

I´d like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you help regarding the sale of our Piper Aztec.

Being based in London, England, I was a little apprehensive about committing to the Atlantic ferry flight but, from that very first phone call, I had the feeling I was in safe hands.

To find an agent willing to source a ferry pilot, recommend a US insurance broker, negotiate the best local FBO tie-down rates, and arrange to have a mechanic do some minor maintenance is indeed a rarity.

You are both true professionals and offer a wealth of advice and guidance along with a very friendly service. I realize that there was additional work involved with the sale of this airplane for the both of you. However, you managed to provide me with honest, realistic and frequent advice on how to progress with the sale while keeping me informed of each of your leads.

We had previously listed the aircraft with another broker who offered neither the assistance, nor the wealth of leads that you guys managed to get.

Your commitment to trying to “close the deal” was obvious. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending AirplanesUSA to any fellow pilot looking to either buy or sell an aircraft, and I look forward to meeting you again next time you fly to the U.K.

Best Regards,
Mr. Ciaran Doyle

Manny,

I want to thank you and Steve Feldman in Chicago for your extremely professional, friendly and courteous assistance in what was a somewhat (read very) difficult long distance purchase. I couldn´t have done it without the great team at AirplanesUSA!

I knew from the start of my search to buy an airplane that you never get rich playing another man´s game, so I turned to the pros and saved myself a lot of grief and money.

This is my first airplane after so many years as a renter pilot and you guys made it work. Your experience is priceless.

Manny,

I can not thank you enough for the professional manner in which you brokered my Cherokee Warrior. Your organization is efficient, your presentation of the airplane was excellent and you certainly know how to work with all of the parties for a smooth and satisfying aircraft transfer.
This is the third aircraft sale that I have witnessed the professionalism of your AirplanesUSA organization. The first two were planes owned by my friends and the third was my plane which you recently sold. All three planes were sold quickly and efficiently as a result of your competence and skill. I would highly recommend you and your organization, AirplanesUSA, to broker any airplane! Thank you and well done.

Dear Manny,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your assistance in the sale of my 1998 Saratoga SP. The transaction went smoothly and your selling an airplane in 25 days says something about your professionalism and reputation in the industry.

I also appreciate you handling the buyers along with keeping me abreast of the details along the way. You always made yourself available and pre-qualified prospects, which was a great relief to me.

I highly recommend you and AirplaneUSA Aircraft Sales to anyone and look forward to working with you in the future.

I know this sounds cliche but you really are my “broker for life.”

To anyone interested in using Manny and AirplaneseUSA,

I can´t say enough good things about Manny and AirplanesUSA.

Manny recently sold my Mooney and, three years ago, my father´s C-182. We both could not have been happier with the experience!

He became a total expert about the particularities of my unique airplane. Both sales were to out-of-town buyers and he helped set up the pre-buy inspections and took care of all the paperwork. The experience could not have been easier! Both sets of buyers were also highly satisfied.

If I ever buy or sell another airplane I will certainly use Manny again!

Dear Manny,

Thank you for all of your help selling my 1995 Piper Saratoga SP.

Prior to enlisting AirplanesUSA I had tried to sell the plane on my own. It was difficult, too many calls from tire kickers and non-interested buyers. My time was wasted fielding unqualified phone calls and emails. At least three times I had a person call and say the “check was in the mail”!

You brought a thorough level of professionalism to the sales process. I appreciate your method of qualifying prospects, handling calls, and managing the process. Best of all, getting to know you personally and getting your candid opinion about each prospect meant a lot.

You have been great Manny. Commission well-earned.

THANK YOU MANNY @ AIRPLANES USA for selling my C-150 in a short and painless period of time.

The buyers from Waco Flying Service in Texas were not only impressed with the aircraft they were also very impressed with you, Manny!  They told me that you were the best broker of all the ones they had dealt with.

I am very glad that I chose your services. THANKS AGAIN MANNY!!!

Hi Manny,

Well, it was bitter sweet this morning.  I took Bruce (the Buyer) up for a little orientation flight and he loved the airplane.  Sure was sad to see our Beechcraft F33A leave for good.

Thank you for all your help in accomplishing the transaction.  It was great having you and your company handle all the paperwork and taking it out of our hands and off our minds.

Everything went smoothly and you did a great job.  Thanks again Manny.

To whom it may concern,

I confidently recommend Manny Camacho at AirplanesUSA. He has sold 2 airplanes for me (Saratoga II TC, Cessna 340) when I was unable to sell them myself.

Manny provided good advice, readable paperwork, excellent exposure, and availability. His demeanor has always been relaxed and pleasant with terrific service to fairly accommodate both the buyer and the seller in generating a win-win environment where a deal can get done.

My thanks to Manny!

Hey Manny,

Thank you for your persistence in getting our Beechcraft A36 sold!

This is a tough market but you marketed our aircraft well and found us a buyer. We really did feel the personal attention throughout the sales process and your communication was great (even when you were stuck in Germany – grounded by the volcano in Iceland!). You kept us up to speed all along the way.

Your service was just great! Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference.  Thanks again for all your help and kind consideration.

Dear Manny,

Thank you for your guidance, overwhelming marketing efforts, and excellent advice. It was what I needed and I could not have done it without you. Despite a soft market, you stuck with it and I got what I wanted for my Saratoga SP.

I especially appreciate you making a special trip by flying in from Fort Lauderdale to look at my Saratoga and taking additional photos.

Apparently, your marketing reach goes around the world, as the buyer was from Germany!

I feel good about the transaction – knowing that I have turned over a great airplane in good shape.

Thanks again for a great job!

Manny:

I am writing to you to let you know I that really appreciate the extraordinary job that you did selling my Cessna 421.

From the moment that I met you at Boca Aviation I knew that I had selected the best broker for the job.

The care that you took to get the best pictures and detail of equipment was evident in the advertising package that attracted many more inquires than I expected in a market where sales of pressurized piston twins was not very active.

In the end, your professional attention to detail and follow-up along with your ability to advertise and sell in the U.S. and International markets produced a South American sale that I was very happy with. This could not have happened without your diligence and expertise.

Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Dear Manny,

I want to thank you for the excellent manor in which you handled the brokering of my airplane.

First, I have to admit that because of my living in California and the airplane having been in Torrance, California, I was concerned that you might not be able to handle it properly, and so I shopped around for other brokers around the country. Partly because of what I considered outrageous charges by other brokers, I decided to give you a try.

I have to tell you, I was very impressed and absolutely satisfied with every aspect of your service. The quality of your website, your expert guidance, the number of potential buyers provided, and your “hand-holding” every step of the way with almost daily calls and emails, all exceeded by far my expectations.

My standards are very high when it comes to service. My standards are rarely met, much less exceeded. You exceeded them. Thank you.

Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Regarding our Beechcraft Sierra purchase, I would highly recommend Manny Camacho and AirplanesUSA.

The depth, thoroughness, and honesty (plus lots of high quality photos) in the marketing advertisements helped us narrow our search.

Additionally, the rapid responses Manny provided to our queries ensured our continued interest. Once we arrived in Florida for the pre-buy inspection, we quickly realized that the aircraft was just as advertised! That is a big relief when travelling half-way across the country to buy an airplane. The whole process was quick and very well done!

In short, Manny honestly represented the airplane and did a professional job working with us as buyers.

As posted in “LinkedIn”:

Manny is great to work with. When I say that he´s the BEST at buying and selling airplanes, I know what I´m taking about.

After all, four of the eight airplanes at our flight school I have gotten thru Manny.  Trust me, you can´t go wrong with him.

Dear Manny,

After trying to sell both my Piper Saratoga and Piper Archer for a year on my own, I finally decided to seek the help of a professional. I am sure glad that I did. I really enjoyed working with you.

You managed to sell both of my airplanes in a short period of time at prices that were above what I really expected.

Your timeliness on all matters is to be commended. I believe that you were able to quickly close on the deals by answering all of the buyer´s questions in a timely fashion and having all of the paperwork in order for both the buyers and myself.

I really appreciated that you were always very straight forward and honest with me. You always told me what you thought needed to be completed in order to expedite the sale of my airplanes. I know that you were very honest with the buyers too. There were no surprises on either end when the buyers came to inspect the airplanes.

I would highly recommend you and AirplanesUSA Aircraft Sales to anyone wanting to sell an airplane.

To: Aircraft owners considering listing their aircraft with AirplanesUSA:

When you get ready to sell your airplane, make sure you are really ready!

Manny Camacho excels at this!  He spends the time to get the details to market your airplane from the get go and when he pushes the button to make it live – it doesn’t take a long time until it’s time to put a SOLD sign on your airplane!  For us it was one day while we expected it to take at least a few months.

Manny takes the time to explain the process up front so that you know what to expect and that is one of the secrets to his success. He is a professional from the beginning to the end and has the expertise to make a complex transaction easier on the buyer and seller.

I would consider Manny first and foremost for any aviation related transaction and recommend him without hesitation.

Be sure you are ready because he doesn’t waste any time to get the job done and get it done right.  Thanks Manny!

Manny,

Thank you very much for making the sale of my Piper Chieftain a quick and painless experience.

I am pleasantly surprised at how you were able to find a qualified buyer within two months. You were very helpful in guiding me through the negotiation process, all the details of the inspection, and the purchase. Thanks again for your fine work.

My experience with AirplanesUSA has been a very positive one.

All the best,

Hi Manny,

I don´t know if I should thank you or not, LOL!  🙂

I had no idea that you would sell my airplane so fast when I signed up with AirplanesUSA – less then a week after the start of your marketing!  I was hoping that it would have taken longer so that I could fly my airplane a few more times, but alas your salesmanship won out and I had to say goodbye.

I would recommend AirplanesUSA without hesitation. A very pleasant experience and you took care of everything!

Thanks again,

Dear “Captain Manny”,

Buying an aircraft and relying solely on a seller´s description is not an easy task. But after buying several airplanes through AirplanesUSA, I have come to realize that your acquisition approach on our behalf is even more demanding than our very own.  You have always managed to surpass our expectations!

You don´t just sell airplanes, Manny.  You provide a special service that makes everyone feel comfortable and absolutely secure throughout their transactions due to your friendly support and dedication.

Latest mission accomplished. The Seneca II is now at its new home after your most excellent work which covered even the smallest of details.

Your professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and dedication to providing a high quality professional service always makes the difference!

Just as we exclaimed after our very first purchase:  “GRACIAS, MANNY!”

Dear Steve,

Just a note to thank you for your professionalism and attentiveness in the purchase of our Cessna 310.

Your “Old School” approach of doing the right thing – always – is refreshing to say the least. While I always have trouble spending this kind of money, you made the transaction as stress free as possible, a mark of a true professional, and I feel honored to have had the privilege to work with you.

Please stay in touch and when in need we know we can count on you for assistance.

Steve,

Just wanted to thank you again for coordinating the purchase of my new plane. Your help made it a very positive experience. I will recommend you to anyone else looking for an aircraft.

I was leery about purchasing long distance (New York from California), but your knowledge and suggestions made for a smooth and timely turnaround. I appreciated that you promptly answered my calls — and were attentive to my questions.

Thanks again — it´s a great plane — will have to plan a trip to meet with you soon.

Dear Steve,

It is not often in life, and in fact truly rare, that some one will energetically help another person to fulfill a life long dream. You and AirplanesUSA have been that for me. I am still in awe over how you arranged so much for me so quickly.

I had gone to Oshkosh in August, tried on planes for size and ergonomics, made my decision on the Piper, then amazingly just what I wanted appeared on your web site. That, along with your endorsement, “This plane needs nothing . . .” convinced me to contact you. You can call that serendipity, but what followed was even more amazing. Within 72 hours of my deposit the plane was here practically on my doorstep in spite of the fact that it was hangared three states and 700 miles away! One demo flight and I knew I wanted it. It was all that you told me and even more.

Now, living a life full of disappointments (not unique I know), I fully expected some glitch to interfere with this acquisition. But, no way! You gave me the contacts for the lender and the insurance. I made phone calls, filled out papers and just like magic had the keys in my hand. This is my first airplane. I secretly wondered if maybe some one or some thing might save me from myself. I should have known, but didn´t at the time, that when you work with Steve Feldman, it is like making a wish to the mythical genie in the bottle! I must also give credit to the other brilliant members of your organization who helped with contacts and got papers delivered to the appropriate parties.

If I could sum up my experiences working with you folks I would have to say two things: First is “No disappointments!” and the second thing is “Acquiring an aircraft through Steve Feldman isn´t just fast, it´s sudden!”

Thank you for helping me to achieve one of the most proud moments that could take place in any one´s life, owning your very own airplane!

Most Sincerely,

Steve,

This is an endorsement of my satisfaction with the job you, Kevin and your organization did in marketing my airplane. The whole process was painless, and produced the results I wanted within a very short time.

AirplanesUSA was referred to me by my local A&P/AI, after several months of my listing my airplane for sale with two well known publications (with limited and unsatisfactory results).

AirplanesUSA´s local representative, Kevin, met with me at my hangar, thoroughly explaining the procedures, methods and exposure used in marketing and sales as well as the costs, etc. After hearing and studying AirplanesUSA´s proposal and terms, a brokerage contract was executed. Kevin then spent several hours photographing and examining the aircraft, documenting the aircraft and engine logs and going over other documentation. He was thorough as well as courteous and helpful. The aircraft sold in a short time, at a price that was both fair and agreeable. AirplanesUSA arranged for an unbiased pre-buy inspection, and the sale was completed with minimum effort on my part. I believe that the new owner will be as satisfied as I am with the process. Further, I would not hesitate to recommend AirplanesUSA to others (in fact have done so). Thanks AirplanesUSA for a job, well done!

I hope this note finds you well. I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you and your staff for a job well done in brokering the recent sale of our Cessna 310. You and your entire staff were extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. You can be sure that if I am ever in a position of needing to buy or sell an aircraft (or two), you will be the first person I call.

Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference for prospective clients you may have.

Dear Steve,

You saved me! My accountant said that they all must go by the end of the year – Five airplanes in four months! A C-150, two C-172s, a Bellanca Super Viking, and a Geronimo/Apache.

I tried for five months and no one called. Three other brokers would not handle my fleet because the commissions would be too small. One broker wanted to trade for an overpriced C-310. You took on this challenge and impressed me every step of the way, mission accomplished.

I´ve been in aviation on and off for 28 years. I´ve owned six airplanes. I´ve been ripped off and cheated more times than I can count. I was so frustrated that I considered sending my license back to the FAA and buying a boat.

Your honesty and professionalism exceeded my expectations. Not only did you sell my airplanes for a fair price, you handled all the paperwork and delivered the airplanes. I did nothing. You saved my license, and there are no boats in my future.

Now that my airplanes are gone what is next? Again, Steve to the rescue. You not only found my next two purchases, you found the right partners for those airplanes. You also found excellent maintenance and avionics shops. They are both honest and high quality shops. Your contacts and reputation is impressive.

Two things I´ve learned about aviation:

1. Never lease back your airplane to a flight school.

2. Always use Steve and AirplanesUSA to buy or sell an airplane.

I would like to say thank you. You restored my faith that here are honest and professional people in aviation. Feel free to have anyone call me for a reference anytime.

Thank you again,

Steve,

I am writing to thank you again for all the help that you gave me while I was buying the Piper Arrow IV. As a first time aircraft buyer, I was unsure of the process and could have made more than a few mistakes. Your help and advice gave me the confidence that you were looking out for me, and not just looking to sell me a plane. The truthfulness and caution that you displayed proved that.

You steered me towards a great shop to do the pre-buy and helped get the airplane through the annual inspection – even calling me during your vacation! Not only did you work the transaction to the end, but you arranged for the ferry flight and gave me the information to coordinate with the insurance company for the ferry pilot. The airplane arrived a day earlier than I even asked for, and I was excited to see the airplane, that I had only seen by photo, turn out to be exactly what was described.

When it comes time to look for another airplane, or when someone asks me who they should use to purchase an airplane, I will be looking to use your services again.

Thank you again,

Steve,

Thank you very much for helping sell my Decathlon. Without your help, I don´t think I could have sold the airplane in such a short time and without all the hassle.

Again, thanks, and I can only recommend your services.

Steve,

Thanks so much for your help in selling my V35 Bonanza.

There were some issues during the prebuy that took longer than expected, but you helped us hang in there, and we eventually completed the sale. This was my first experience with a broker, and you certainly earned my trust.

Thanks again,

Steve,

I just wanted to thank you again for the guidance you provided in the purchase of my airplane.

As someone new to aviation, and a first time aircraft buyer, I certainly had the potential to have made costly mistakes. It was not only your extensive knowledge and experience in the industry, but your accurate assessment of my needs that gave me the confidence that you were a genuine advocate for me, and not just looking to sell a plane. The greatest indication of the level of trust that you earned came when you called me while I was on vacation with my family in Florida. Your excitement over having found “the right plane at the right price” put the wheels in motion for what turned out to be one of the smoothest transactions I have ever encountered. And, it was the trust that I had in you that allowed me to buy a plane sight unseen from over 1000 miles away. Not only did you facilitate the transaction, but you arranged for, and personally oversaw the pre-purchase inspection, ferried the plane back to my airport, introduced me to an insurance broker, and saw to it that the plane was washed and parked in the hanger for my return. And, it didn´t end there. Your introductions to other members of the airport community have provided me with some great resources as well as helping me to feel right at home.

I continue to become more enamored with the plane with each occasion I have to fly it. Nevertheless, I recognize the time will come when I am ready to move on to my next plane. When that time comes, it will be Steve Feldman that I will trust to handle that transaction.

As you know, it was through your website that I first learned about AirplanesUSA. In particular, the testimonials that you have posted from the many satisfied customers gave me great confidence that you were the company that I wanted to deal with. Please feel free to post my note as well. I would also be happy to provide information to any of your prospective clients should they wish to contact me.

Hello Steve,

It is with great pleasure that I offer my referral for what I consider to be an excellent aircraft brokerage service offered by your organization. As you know I have had my Cessna T210 for sale off and on over several years either privately or with other brokers, but without success. You sold it, and being in the sales business myself, I am convinced it was due in large part to your persistence and absolute professional integrity.

Please accept my warmest regards to you and Krista.

Dear Steve,

Bob and I want to thank you so much for helping us buy our dream plane. a Bonanza! We certainly could not have obtained such a great airplane within our price range without your expertise. As first time airplane buyers we were very “green” on the whole process, yet you carefully guided us through step by step. You always watched out for our interests to ensure everything was right with the deal now, and when it comes time to sell in the future. We both were very impressed when we first went to see the airplane and you pointed out minor flaws that no one else noticed. Your professionalism and knowledge of negotiating the price within our budget were excellent. When snags in the negotiations arose, you always offered alternatives to keep the deal moving forward, especially when dealing with a demanding seller. We would also like to thank Krista who was always there to help, and for her expertise when it came time to fill out the endless paperwork concerning the purchase. As we fly our F33A we will think of you both and be grateful for all you´ve done. Again thank you and happy flying!

Hello Steve,

On Sunday I went to Aarhus (Denmark) to collect my new Cessna 172 SP – it is such a beautiful bird. I like this plane so much. You did a perfect job, and I am so happy about this plane you found for me. Right from the beginning when I came to know Michael Nelson, your sales representative in Germany, there was a deep confidence in you and your company, and I am happy to have worked together with you. Well, if one buys a plane from a different continent, a lot of problems might arise, but you always helped me so much throughout the whole process. The plane was able to demonstrate its reliability, too – it crossed over the pond. It is so exciting to own a bird that has come over about 3500 miles from the United States. I can recommend your company so much. Thanks for all.

Dear Steve,

I´ve written this recommendation of your work to share with your other clients.

“Steve is the very definition of professional. His high integrity, incredible depth of knowledge and ability to get great results translated to an outstanding experience for my acquisition of a Piper aircraft. I truly owe him for all those compliments I keep hearing at the ramp.

On top of that he takes time to understand you, is a joy to work with, and has a calm and thoughtful approach esp. when it is most needed. It is rare to find someone with Steve´s qualities, he is an absolute gem.”

Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for selling my aircraft for me. Your professionalism and understanding was greatly appreciated. Just when I was giving up, you came through and got the job done. You went above and beyond the call of duty. I am sure the lucky person who bought my plane appreciates the extra time and effort you put in. He purchased a very special aircraft.

Steve,

I want to thank you on behalf of my partners for the quick, professional job you did selling our Mooney 231. You clearly had done your homework to prepare for the sale, and it paid off in finding a buyer who recognized a quality product. I strongly recommend your services to anyone buying or selling an aircraft. Thanks!

To Whom it May Concern,

AirplanesUSA sold my aircraft. It was a one of a kind experimental aircraft, and was sold in a difficult market. Steve did an exceptional job, with honesty and perseverance. I would highly recommend AirplanesUSA Aircraft Sales to all prospective sellers.

Steve,

I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your efforts on my behalf during my recent purchase. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase but my complete satisfaction would not have been possible without your untiring efforts. I won´t rehash all of the details but suffice it to say that, for someone going through an aircraft purchase for the first time, there are a lot of complexities and nuances that have the potential to ratchet up the stress, especially when the plane and the purchaser are 2,000 miles apart. Again, without going into details, in my mind, what sets you apart from anyone involved in any of the major purchases that I´ve made over my lifetime is that throughout this transaction, I firmly believe (and still do) that you were far more interested in ensuring my complete satisfaction than you were in brokering the sale of an airplane I have sung your praises long and loud both at my flying club and among all of the pilots that I know and the message is consistent. If you are at all interested in buying or selling an airplane, contacting Steve Feldman at AirplanesUSA is the only way to go.

Thanks again Steve,

Steve,

The decision to sell my modernized Cherokee 160 was an emotional one. Metal and wiring harnesses, yes, but…surely there is a soul in there somewhere. Steve Feldman evaluated my plane, thoroughly inspected all logs and records, and helped me set a fair asking price. Steve´s ad, with pictures he took of the plane while running, was outstanding – the information was there for prospective buyers to see the value. In probably the worst used airplane market in decades we waited patiently all summer for the right buyer to come along. Through that wait Steve was reassuring, always available, and lent me his 20 years brokering experience to rely on that it was only a matter of time. When the right buyer came along he handled everything beautifully for both parties. I could not have asked for better service or results from an aircraft broker.

Thank you, Steve, for your expertise and guidance – and Krista, for your cheerful airplanesusa.com communications and updates too!

Sincerely,

Captain Dirk G. Vander Ende

To Whom it May Concern,

I started to earn my private pilot certificate in early 2010, and about half way through I made the tough decision to purchase an aircraft of my own. The first call was to Steve Feldman at AirplanesUSA. I had known Steve for a couple of years before I started my flying, and I knew his long history of aviation and professionalism.

I gave Steve a guideline depicting the type, cost and condition of the aircraft I was willing to buy. He guided me through the minefields of purchasing a pre-owned airplane and scrutinized a number of available aircraft before suggesting the airplane that I would eventually purchase.

AirplanesUSA made my purchase easy and safe. I am very happy with the organization of the sale and the cost. Thank you Steve for making my dream come true.

To Whom it May Concern,

I actually found my Piper Cherokee 160 on another site (I didn´t know about AirplanesUSA yet!), and sent Steve an email inquiring about the availability and price.

I informed him that I was currently working toward my PPL and that I would be using the airplane to get through that, as well as an instrument rating. Steve took the time to give me a very complete and thorough history of the airplane and talk to me about how it would work as a trainer. As this was my first aircraft purchase, I was hesitant, especially knowing that I would not be seeing the airplane until it showed up at my FBO in Southern Pines, NC.

Over the following weeks I continued to call Steve and receive updates about a few things that were being fixed and how the pre-buy inspection would take place. Never once did I feel I was alone during the process, Steve gave every bit of information I asked for and then some.

When it was time for the pre-buy, Steve had the plane flown to the mechanic I had selected, free of charge, and picked it up when they were finished! When the aircraft finally arrived in NC, I was excited and truly impressed that it arrived in exactly the state Steve told me it would. (Try that at a car lot!) It is a beautiful and solid airplane that will give me years of enjoyment and it flies like a dream!

Both Steve and Krista are consummate professionals, and truly have a customer in me for life. They not only build clients, they build friends. Bravo!

Kind regards,

Dear Steve and Krista,

Now that the dust has settled, and the sale of my Cessna P-210 is complete with the money in the bank, I just want to thank you again for all the effort and work you did to complete an extremely difficult sale of the aircraft.

My plane was not airworthy when you listed it due to the engine being in pieces, but you never hesitated in your optimism of still being able to get the plane sold in an extremely difficult market, even with an airplane that the potential buyer couldn´t fly (My plane was not flyable…no operational engine)! That didn´t stop your enthusiasm, nor your incredible optimism, and before much time went by you had it sold.

Job well done, Steve and Krista, and if any potential customers want a recommendation of what AirplanesUSA can do for them, please have them call me any time.

Sincerely,

Steve,

Thank you for your assistance in selling our plane. The Buyer admitted that he felt comfortable with you and decided on our plane because of your recommendations. I enjoyed working with you. I still can´t believe I chose to fly into Chicago class B with 25-30 knot winds but I did and it worked!!!

Kevin and Steve,

I wanted to send a quick email expressing how thankful I am to you for selling the Warrior. You were not only helpful but very patient, especially with a novice like me. The whole process went smoothly, and this was evidenced by how well the closing went in face of last minute circumstances. I do feel that the new owner is getting a solid airplane and I know he was treated with the best in courtesy.

Please feel free to use me as a recommendation to any future clients and I look forward to talking soon.

Very best regards,

Steve,

I wanted to thank you one more time for helping with the purchase of our new plane.  I certainly am very happy with the 182RG.  I think the rest of the club is as well but, as you may suspect, I don´t get a lot of feedback.  I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell, and I am sure I will return when it is time for me to buy my Cirrus, although you may be retired by then.

Hello Steve,

It been a little over 2 years since you managed the purchase of our Skylane N941BM. My business partner and I flew the plane up to Schaumburg, IL (O6C) last night for meetings in Chicago today.

We are flying the plane about 150-160 hours per year. Still running strong on original IO-540 engine. It has been babied… oil changes at every 40hrs, oil analysis done at every oil change. Compressions are mid 70’s on all cylinders.

Thank you for helping to make our first experience and aircraft ownership such a rewarding experience.

Hi Steve,

I purchased my 1975 Commander 112A almost a year ago now and I have thought of writing many times to thank you and have just been too busy. Today is a nice snowy Sunday morning and I think I have owned my Commander long enough that I must take the time to write you and let you know how happy I am with the actual purchase and the Commander itself!

 You made everything so easy! Your policy of being 100% honest is the absolute best approach! By knowing exactly what I was getting I can say that I am 100% satisfied!   I did a lot of research myself but I certainly had a lot of help from you as well. 

Thank you very much!
