Owner and founder, Gavin Carlson, started Plane Sales in 2008. Our first website was pretty basic and we've since had 2 site rebuilds.

After all these years the mission hasn't changed. We have one purpose - to bring aircraft and helicopter sellers an effective and reasonably priced online advertising database. We've never made this complicated and pride ourselves on our no BS approach to doing business with our customers.

We aim to provide:

  • The most complete and up-to-date internet listing of aircraft for sale in Australia
  • The easiest and most powerful site of its type for aircraft sales
  • The quickest and most effective way to bring an aircraft to market
  • An easy to use, searchable online aircraft database
  • A once only pricing model. Pay to list your aircraft and it's online until is sold.
  • Cost effective advertising prices - far more cost effective than print advertising. Listing an aircraft for sale is still $75.00 for private sellers and $55.00 for dealers.

Our site traffic - March 2021

Plane Sales Australia consistently receives over 150,000 site sessions per month. Of these visits nearly 39% are returning visitors. In any given month we'll receive over 350,000 page views. Our site gets the traffic, it's as simple as that. On top of that our social media pages are there for our sellers. Our Facebook page has over 9,000 followers, Instagram over 10,000. We use these to get your listing in front of even more buyers.

What do we offer buyers & sellers?

Aircraft Buyers
We like to keep things simple. Our straight forward drop down search function allows buyers to drill down and sort through our listings. We provide up to 10 photos and full pages of information on each aircraft for sale. If you find something that interests you, you contact the seller directly.

Aircraft Sellers
Our aim is to get your aircraft exposed to the maximum number of potential buyers for the least financial outlay. You only pay once to list an aircraft on Plane Sales Australia. Unlike our competitors, you will not receive an invoice every month to keep your listing online. That's how we run the site and it won't be changing anytime soon.

Our Listing costs

At Plane Sales Australia we don't hide our advertising charges. Our base listing prices are cheap. Of course you can speck these up to a feature listing if you like for a little extra. We have separate pricing tiers for private and commercial sellers:

  • Private Sellers - It doesn't matter if you're selling a Cessna 172 or a Boeing 747, your cost will only be $75.00 per aircraft listing. For that your aircraft stays online until sold.
  • Commercial Sellers - If you're an aviation related business then we offer a discounted rate of $55.00 per aircraft total until sold. We are happy to discuss even lower rates for bulk listings.

Sold Aircraft Listings

We have a sold aircraft database that can be found at the bottom of the home page. This is an excellent research tool if you're a buyer or seller.

Payments & Security

We understand that not everyone feels secure using their credit card to pay online. That's why we have encrypted security on every page of our website. Just look for the little padlock in your browser. We have 100% confidence in the company we use to process and look after our payments. All our credit card processing is done by Stripe. Feel free to check out their website. Also note we do not store your credit card details. Once you have paid for the listing your card details are erased off the Plane Sales website. If you're still not convinced we are happy to list your aircraft and either take your payment details over the phone or have you deposit the listing fee via EFT. The choice is yours, contact our admin if you have any questions.

Flexible pricing

Aircraft dealers and commercial sellers have a choice of pricing and listing packages.
