Aircraft Acquisitions

Uncertainty and pricing pressure have been the two constants in our aircraft markets since the start of the Great Recession in 2008.  The good news today, almost exactly 7 years since the start of the Recession, is that there are buyers.  We are currently representing several of them.

There continues to be incredible buying opportunities.  The trick to marrying the buyer and seller in this market is in the terms of the deal and the quality of the buying team. There are many important factors beyond just the price.  When a buyer can demonstrate strong financial qualifications, they are represented by a broker and an aviation attorney that understands what is common, customary and fair, and when the terms of the offer presented show a level of commitment to the process, business gets done.   We have represented buyers of business aircraft for more than 41 years.  During that time we have always worked with our clients to build a transaction structure and a message that resonates with the seller of the aircraft we are pursuing.  Because we only work on an exclusive basis and our clients pay us a fee directly for our service, our process is 100% transparent and our motivations are aligned with our clients.  Sellers recognize the value of our model as it results in having a good buying team on the other side of the transaction and they often acknowledge their appreciation of the process.

Today we are representing highly qualified buyers for a Falcon 2000LX and two Falcon 2000EX EASys as well as other aircraft of which we already have contracted.  Please continue to watch our Mesinger Marketplace and call us if you own or represent any of the aircraft types that we are actively searching for or a buyer for an aircraft that we are representing for sale.  We look forward to speaking with you soon and hopefully working with you on the other side of a transaction.  We assure you a straight forward honest process whether buying or selling.

Challenger 605 Serial Number 5774, N68888

We are proud to exclusively represent for immediate sale Challenger 605 Serial Number 5774 and Registration Number N68888.  This 2009 model, U.S. N-registered, one owner, low time aircraft has been almost exclusively maintained by both Bombardier in Dallas, TX and Jet Aviation.  Bombardier Dallas just completed the 12, 24 and 36 month and 400 hour inspection package and the aircraft is being stored outside of Houston, TX ready for immediate sale.  Some key highlights of this aircraft include enrollment on the G.E. OnPoint Engine Maintenance Program, SMART PARTS Plus and MSP for the APU.  Additionally, this aircraft has fresh inspections, beautiful paint and interior and the 11 passenger interior configuration with the extended cabin and the 4-place conference group and it is equipped with a lot of optional equipment and upgrades.

The Challenger 605 is the 6th generation aircraft in Bombardier’s extremely successful almost 40 production run of Challenger aircraft (Canadair, the original manufacturer was sold to Bombardier in 1986).  Each successive generation of the aircraft type starting with the Challenger 600 in the late 1970s has been continually improved; and Challenger aircraft are some of the oldest, most reliable and comfortable aircraft types ever built.  To date close to 1,000 have been built and there are 274 Challenger 605s in service around the world.

The Challenger 605 was introduced to the world in 2006 as the follow up to the Challenger 604.  Changes implemented with the introduction of the 605 include lower per hour average fuel burn, a complete new Collins Proline 21 flight deck and larger windows that are also cut higher on the aircraft’s sidewalls.  The change to the aircraft’s windows significantly opens up the feeling of the interior of the aircraft and makes what was already a spacious comfortable flying experience even better.

Today (August 22, 2015) there are approximately 23 Challenger 605s publicly listed for sale representing roughly 17% of the global fleet.  Over the last six months there have been approximately 8 retail sales and several of the aircraft currently listed for sale are under contract.  The Challenger 605 market is active.  Most buyers are in the United States, but due to the global popularity of the Challenger 605 over the last several years a large percentage of the fleet is based and being sold outside of the United States.  This makes it challenging for many buyers to see aircraft and feel comfortable about their pedigree and past operation.  Of the approximately 23 in the public market, only 9 are U.S. registered and in the United States.  Aircraft registered and based outside of the United States are not bad, but they are more challenging to acquire and the time and cost to do so are both greater for U.S. buyers.

You can find detailed specifications and lots of photographs on our website at  Our client has their replacement aircraft in service and is ready to review all offers and get this sold.  Call us to learn more about this exciting aircraft and great opportunity, +1-303-444-6766 or
