Trader- Dealer

The main mission of helicopter traders involves generating profit through the purchase and sale of pre-owned helicopters, i.e. they will buy either distressed, part exchange, or pre-owned helicopters below market value, often adding value to the asset by putting it through maintenance, adding upgrades and retrofitting cabins as well as adding a brand new livery.

Uplifting Aviation endeavours to provide traders access to the precise helicopter models, the parts and components they require, at below market value.

We also work with helicopter dealers focused on in-country distribution of new helicopter models. We access our global client base to support the achievement of their sales targets with the manufacturer(s) that they represent.
