OUR HISTORY

Southern Aircraft Sales Ltd (SASL) was founded on a part time basis by Mr Justin Sollitt in 1999 in Christchurch, New Zealand. The founding of SASL follows Justin's lifelong passion for aviation and flying. Since founding SASL Justin has been affiliated with these industry associations: Aviation Industry Association NZ (AIA), Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (NZ), Sport Aircraft Association NZ, and NZ Institute of Plant & Machinery Valuers (Aviation).

SASL was developed on a full time basis from 2003 and with considerable entrepreneurial drive it quickly became a leading aviation brokerage, valuation and light aircraft leasing business in the South Pacific region. SASL broke the mould of traditional aircraft dealerships by pioneering an aviation brokerage operated purely online at a time when the internet was in its infancy and the term 'ecommerce' was largely unheard of. "Back then websites were very much the poor cousin to traditional sales yards and print advertising right across the transport industry. What SASL was doing was seen as very avant-garde, now it is the global industry standard." reflects Justin.

SASL has experience with transacting deals on nearly all fixed and rotor wing aircraft types ranging from a microlight to a business jet and it has either brokered, traded, imported, exported, appraised or valued over 5000 machines worldwide.

The Hangar247 platform was developed by SASL from early 2017. It continues the drive and momentum that the original SASL brokerage established 20 years ago as well as meeting the demand for a global classifieds based technology platform. Today the business represents customers in most countries around the world.
