Welcome to the Aircraft for Sale Website

You can create, ammend or replace your adverts all online in real time, including uploading up to 6 photographs and videos for each advert.

Creating and Maintaining Adverts
Just click on the create a listing link near the top left and follow the instructions.
Responding to an advert
There are two ways to respond to an advert.
You can Ask a Question
If the advertiser has permitted this facility, You may ask a question about the advert. This question will appear at the bottom of the listing. You do not have to register to do this, but you will need to verify some text from an image, to ensure no automatically generated stuff gets in.
The advertiser will be sent an e mail advising him of the question
You can also Contact the Advertiser Directly
So as to protect advertisers from e mail scammers, to contact the advertiser, you must now be a registered user and logged in. Once Registered and Logged in, You will be able to complete a form to contact the advertiser. Afors will send the advertiser an e-mail with the form contents, this will not be posted on the site, as it is deemed private. If you are an advertiser, please note that at this stage, if you reply to the e mail, that reply will go directly to the potential buyer, therefore you will be giving him your e-mail address, so be carefull when you reply, as scammers abound. I try and protect users as much a I can, but ultimately it is down to the users own dilligence.
This site was designed with the help of the Adobe CS6 web suite. It uses modern web standards for the display structure, the programming language php version 5 and a mySQL database. it is best viewed using the Google Chrome browser. The original idea, was from a guy called Nigel Bell. I(Alex) have completely re-written the database, php code and html.
No longer completely free , thanks to scammers.
For many years, I managed to keep afors free, but ultimately in April 2017, I had to introduce a small charge, as this was the only way to stop scammers registering and posting their scams. and finally I am getting a small return for my efforts.
Obviously there are ongoing costs involved with the site, server and bandwidth are the biggest cost at £250.00 per month plus vat (there are two servers involved). and a further £40.00 per month to adobe, for using cs6. and numerous other smaller costs, which all add up to the monthly costs of a half decent car. If I were to charge for my time in developing and running the site, I estimate that each advert should actually cost in the region of £25.00.
