Simhawk Rebrands, Expands Online Aviation Marketplace

Simhawk has rebranded to Avmkt to reflect the expanded services it is now offering through its online aviation marketplace. Launched some two years ago to match buyers and sellers of simulator time and training, the company can now connect buyers and sellers of other aviation services such as paint and interiors, avionics upgrades, aircraft maintenance, and crew services.

“Working with thousands of Simhawk buyers and sellers over the past few years, we realized that the same challenges existed for pilots, aircraft owners, and operators looking to find and buy the numerous other services that are needed to keep them and their aircraft flying,” said Avmkt founder and CEO Chris Weinberg.

In conjunction with the new name, Avmkt has improved its marketplace platform that allows buyers to create a profile of the services that they need, for specific aircraft, so they will be automatically notified whenever a supplier posts an offer. Additionally, aviation suppliers can now post available capacity and directly reach operators of a specific aircraft type or category.

Avmkt has a mix of free and paid membership plans available, depending on the service level desired. New buyers who sign up by July 31 will receive a free upgrade to Avmkt Buyer Plus. It is also free for contract/freelance pilots to list themselves for hire on the platform.
