We service the needs of airplane and helicopter owners, operators, agents, brokers and dealers worldwide. We have thousands of aircraft advertised, across hundreds of makes and types, with our total viewer audience visiting from 150+ countries.

Hangar247 is run by experienced pilots and aircraft owners and SASL is the only online aviation classifieds company in the world that is industry accredited to provide aviation valuations.

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 that includes completing a pilots licence in 1997. Since founding SASL Justin has held affiliations with AOPA (NZ), SAA and NZ Institute of Valuers.

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. Prior to establishing Hangar247, 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.

Hangar247 was developed from early 2017 by Justin Sollitt and Craig Ray to meet the market demand for a global classifieds based technology platform.
