Aircraft brokerage Aerocor, which specializes in preowned very light jet sales, experienced another strong year in 2022. The Nevada-based company completed 43 sales transactions last year, 30 percent of which were completed in the fourth quarter.

The company dominated the Eclipse 500 market with its representation of either the buyer or seller in more than 70 percent of the transactions in the second half of the year. Over the past few years, the company has offered several value-added services for Eclipse 500 operators, including an aircraft training program combined with FlightData’s maintenance tracking and performance analyzer and the recently-updated Eclipse quick reference application.

Last year, Aerocor also saw growth in its market share of the Beechcraft Premier I/IA as it represented clients in 15 percent of the type’s transactions.

“We have put a lot of effort into developing informational materials for the benefit of Premier owners and potential buyers,” said Jens Personius, the company’s manager of client services, adding that they are now beginning to see the positive effects reliable and transparent information can have on the fleet’s liquidity. “Prior to publication of our 'Premier Buyers Guide, New Owner Guide,' and quarterly market updates, there was very little information available about these aircraft.”
