Still, It Must Be Hard To Part With Each One Of Them...
Over the past 50 years, Courtesy Aircraft Sales tells ANN that
it believes it has earned its rep as one of the World Leaders in
Warbird Sales. Recently two major milestones have been surpassed
with Courtesy Aircraft Sales now having sold 100 North American
AT-6s (also known as SNJs or Harvards) and 30 North American P-51
Mustangs in the past decade.
Considering the relative rarity of these ex-military aircraft,
this is one accomplishment that comes far and few between. For
example, today there are approximately 350 North American AT-6s
that are airworthy. Courtesy Aircraft has sold approximately 30% of
all airworthy AT-6 aircraft -- and not all have been on the market.
Courtesy Aircraft has sold more North American aircraft than any
other company besides North American Aviation itself.
Mark Clark, President of Courtesy Aircraft states, "It is a
pleasure to be part of the history of these aircraft; I continue to
be impressed with the enthusiasm shown by the public for these
symbols of freedom."
Courtesy Aircraft was founded in 1957 as a new Cessna aircraft
dealership. As years past and business continued to prosper, a new
market began to emerge including ex-military trainers, fighters and
bombers also known as warbirds. Courtesy Aircraft assists their
customers with the aircraft ownership process from start to finish.
This includes financing, insurance, training and checkouts as well
as ferry and container delivery services worldwide.
