Why Partner with Me?

Hi, I am Steve Thompson, and this is why you should consider engaging me as your aviation partner.

I have lots of General Aviation experience. There are lots of aviation professionals helping aircraft buyers and sellers nowadays. Many of them have impressive military and airline pilot experience, or extensive corporate sales experience.  But, what will help you most is someone with lots of General Aviation experience.

Since early on, I have been part of General Aviation aircraft sales and acquisition when my family owned a Cessna dealership. That experience exposed me to all facets of General Aviation. At the FBO, I worked the line, served fuel, worked in maintenance, and spent time in the sales office. I even did aircraft repossession. I've seen General Aviation like very few have.

I know airplanes. I've flown, owned, serviced, consulted on, and sold many General Aviation aircraft models over the years, becoming intimately familiar with their systems, designs, capabilities and quirks. I regularly perform market analysis for customers, so I know the market.

I have experience in and around airplanes. I have significant experience in high performance and complex aircraft, high-wing and low-wing, aerobatic, certificated and experimental aircraft, and nowadays I spend a majority of my time in tailwheel aircraft. I average over 250 hours a year of Part 91 flying, and I am closely integrated into the aviation community.

I know business. With significant corporate leadership experience, I know how to execute the deal. I know how to pull in the right players at the right time. I understand the challenges that come up in aircraft purchase transactions, and I know how to work through them in a way that best benefits you.

I get to know you. Whereas other General Aviation consulting or sales professionals often work for large conglomerates with significant overhead, I am a one-person small business. I want a great business relationship with you. I take the time to understand your situation, and I work with you in an advisory capacity to help you achieve your goal.
