Buyers Tools & Information

We know that buying an aircraft is a big decision. Whether it is your first aircraft purchase or you're planning on upgrading, a lot of thought and research should go into making that decision. We don't claim to be an expert on every aircraft we sell. Our policy is simple - be honest and represent the aircraft as it is. We offer you the tools to help you make your purchase decision.

Aircraft specific organizations or associations are often the best resource for information on a specific type of aircraft. They usually have "checklist" or items to look for when considering an aircraft. And they will often have "experts" that you can contact to ask questions or just get general information about a particular type of aircraft. Here we have gathered "links" to many aircraft specific organizations/associations that will be useful when researching an aircraft type. You will also find documents that include technical data and other useful information.

February 26, 1952: North American test pilot George Smith becomes the first person to survive a supersonic ejection. During a test flight the controls of a production F-100A Super Sabre lock and the plane enters a near vertical dive. At an altitude of 6000 ft at Mach 1.05 (675 mph), Smith ejects. He experiences a peak 64 g from wind-drag deceleration and spends .29 sec above 20 g. Smith immediate lost consciousness and his chute deploys but with 1/3 of its panels ripped. Gravely injured he lands in the Pacific where a fishing boat finds him. Smith recovers after a long convalescence and returns to testing high performance a/c.
