The History of US Aircraft Finance: Celebrating National Aviation History Month

The month of November is National Aviation History month—an entire 30 days dedicated to “exploring, recognizing and celebrating America’s great contributions and achievements in the development of aviation” (Source: US Census Bureau).

The development of mechanical flight has evolved greatly from the earliest attempts at gliders to today’s ultra-modern, high-tech aircraft models. Here at US Aircraft Finance, we focus our efforts on offering financing options for those looking to purchase their very own General Aviation aircraft, new or used, searching for refinancing opportunities, or hoping to upgrade an airplane with new technology, such as updated avionics to support ADS-B, or mechanics, such as a new engine.

Treat yourself with flight before 2019 tax season is over

Autumn is in full-gear which means we’ll soon have to say goodbye to beautiful flying conditions. Have you considered purchasing a new aircraft before the season is over?

ADS-B: Why you need to make the change now

NextGen

The FAA is now requiring all aircraft support Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) under the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System. NextGen is the modernization of the US air transportation system technology, featuring a transitioning of the ground-based radar systems for traffic control and aircraft separation to satellite-controlled systems. 

This upgrade will make flying safer, more efficient, and more accessible than ever before. Real-time ADS-B provides pilots with vital traffic, weather, and flight-information services, as well as broadcasts your aircraft’s GPS position to ground control and other aircraft with ADS-B receivers.  (more…)
