We have several services that include New and Used Aircraft Sales, Aircraft Acquisition, Aircraft Brokerage, Appraisals, and Advanced Flight Training.

We specialize in the sale of the Piper Cherokee Six, Piper Lance, and Piper Saratoga. We are the "Saratoga King" because no one except Piper Aircraft has sold more Saratogas than us.

Our Aircraft Sales Department features aircraft from Piper, Cessna, and Beechcraft. We offer new and quality pre-owned aircraft at an affordable price. If you currently own an aircraft, we do accept trades.

Bartelt Aviation, Inc. wants to establish long term mutually beneficial relationships that will allow us to serve your aviation needs well into the future. When you are ready to buy, sell, or upgrade; think Bartelt Aviation, Inc.

Our Aircraft Acquisition Department will assist you with your aircraft purchase by locating an aircraft that meets your specific requirements for a nominal fee. This department will over see the Title Search, Registration, Financing, Pre-Buy Inspection, Refurbishment, Delivery, and Advanced Flight Training.

Let us locate, modify, and deliver the aircraft of your dreams. Our company is the one-stop aircraft shopping super center. If the customer wants it, we will deliver the product. Our sales professionals will work for you and advise you what is in your best interest. Many times, we will save you money by locating an aircraft that is priced below book!

Our Brokerage Department will assist you by over-seeing the sale of your aircraft from start to finish. Avoid the tire kickers! Have a professional organization represent your interests and obtain the highest possible retail price for a nominal fee.

Often, it is difficult for an individual to sell their aircraft because they are not willing to accept trades or allocate enough funds needed to promote the aircraft properly. Bartelt Aviation, Inc. will accept trades and assume the responsibility for those trades. Our advertising budget for the year is $36,000.00, which allows us to provide excellent exposure for the aircraft we are selling.

If you want to sell but are not interested in our brokerage service, we are cash buyers for aircraft. Our Aircraft Purchase Department will close the transaction in a timely fashion and is willing to pay a fair price for your airplane.

Bartelt Aviation, Inc. has sold hundreds of aircraft Worldwide. We have built an excellent reputation over the years by representing the finest aircraft in the world.
