Welcome to Mercury Aircraft Sales

Testimonials

..."I can say without reservation that you did excellent work in representing the seller and also assisting me in this purchase. In general, there is a joke that aviation sales people are only lying when their lips are moving, but that does not apply at all to you or your work. I can only say good things about the gentle follow through by you on all fronts, the candor with which you explained the history of the airplane and situation to me (a first time buyer of a larger twin engine turbo prop). You always returned calls and emails promptly (a real issue for me with other people who wait weeks to connect). Mostly what impresses me, now that I have owned the plane for a bit, is that you represented it to be what it is."

"When I recently decided to sell my aircraft, I retained Mercury Aircraft to do the job. I did not know Mike personally, and had had no previous experience with their services. It did not take me long to realize that Mike is different from other aircraft brokers I have dealt in the past. His professional ethic and honesty are above the rest. Moreover, his knowledge of the aviation market, and the detailed knowledge of the particular attributes and peculiarities of the aircraft he sells, allows him to be a better representative for potential sellers and buyers alike. All of these attributes made it possible for me to sell my airplane in a short amount of time. He took care of all the details of the closing, and all was smooth and painless. I will not hesitate to ask him to do the same for me in the future when the need arises."

"I used Mike Shafer to sell my modified Cheyenne Aircraft, and he did yeoman work in advertising and coordinating with potential buyers. I was well served and recommend him without hesitation."

- James T. Cook, III, M.D.

"Mike, As far as I am concerned you kept engaged in the sale process as it progressed. It was a little unusual in that the buyer was in a situation where he needed to sell his plane to complete the transaction in a timely manner. You trusted that I would live up to our arrangement without a formal contract until the very end and therefore I trusted you. You are a sincere person, which is a breath of fresh air in a world where there seem to be some that are not. Thanks for helping me through the process."

"I originally spoke to Mike about a year before finally purchasing my Piper Jetprop. He continually followed up with me with respect to available aircraft and the status of the market. He provided all necessary information on any aircraft I was seriously considering in a timely and easy to understand manner. When I decided to make an offer Mike was as dogged as they come, continually following up and helping me get into the right plane at the right price point. Whether you are a buyer or seller I can wholeheartedly recommend that you use Mike and his company. He will work his tail off to get your aircraft sold or get you into the right plane given your budget. Mike is also a great guy and that only makes the experience better. Although I cannot speak to other airframes, if you are looking to buy or sell an entry level turbine (Meridian or Jetprop) Mike knows these planes and the market well and should be your guy."

"Mike is very focused in the completion of a deal... When an engine problem came up with my Cheyenne closing, he worked hard to find solutions, gained agreement from both the seller and me and then successfully completed the transaction. His intensity and thoroughness are outstanding...."

- Tom Tess, The Straubel Companies

"We really appreciated your precious help. Thanks to your knowledge of the market and your professionalism, our Cheyenne found a new home in less than 2 months without even being listed on the market which is a serious achievement. Your ability to find the right buyer at the right time as well as your continuos support resulted in an easy, quick and completely painless transaction. We really enjoyed working with you and would recommend any owner or buyer to do so as well. "
