SIA Group Aviation have been researching and planning The Aviation Auction concept for a few years, SIA Group are experienced, licensed Auctioneers with over 20 years history, we have sold a variety of high profile assets from the Lotus Formula One team to holding world record Art sales. Group Chairman, Simon Morgan sits on the board of NAVA (National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers). SIA Group have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that The Aviation Auction will not just be a one off event, but a regular fixture in the aviation industry calendar.

The purpose of The Aviation Auction is to simplify the way upon which Aircraft, Parts and Equipment are bought and sold. The Aviation Auction will allow buyer and seller a transparent and seamless way to make a purchase or sale. Through the auction process, long winded negotiations over price and contracts are eliminated. The often tested and fraught relationship between buyer and seller is removed. Most importantly there are no hidden commissions and sales prices are transparent to all parties involved allowing aircraft and parts to be sold for their true value.

The 2nd Aviation Auction will open on 5th November 2014, bidding will close on 28th November. This extended viewing period gives buyers the required time to complete their due diligence on the asset they would like to purchase. The Aviation Auction is aimed at the General Aviation and Business Aviation markets, the Auction will host a number of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft along with parts, ground handling equipment and avionics. The aim of the auction is to allow a global market access to aviation assets that are truly for sale, with a specified closing date.
