We have teamed up with our sister website - ukga.com - to offer an online-only advertising option for aircraft sales/shares and equipment

Currently the only way to advertise your aircraft sale, group share or equipment on Pilotweb is to buy an advert in the classified section of Pilot magazine. A great as that is, we recognise that some people only want to advertise items like this online. That’s why we’ve teamed up with our sister website UKGA.com to offer an online only option.

From the beginning of December, when you place an advert on UKGA.com it will also appear within the classified section of Pilotweb. This combination will give you access to over 64,000 active pilots and general aviation enthusiasts.

If you aren’t familiar with UKGA.com, it’s a community-led website used by all types of active and trainee pilots, it’s packed full of useful flying tool and friendly forums as well as being home to a thriving online marketplace.

FAQs

* I’m based in the USA and want to sell my avionics on UKGA, is this ok?

Unfortunately, we are only able to accept avionics adverts from within the EU.

* I want to sell a product that only has a value of £100, do I still have to pay?

Not necessarily, you can advertise any item on UKGA for free if it has a genuine value of less than £500, however the advert will not appear on Pilotweb.aero. If you would like to advertise the item in Pilot magazine you will still be required to pay.

* I’m trying to source a specific aircraft to purchase, do I still need to pay?

Yes, this is what we would term as a “wanted advert” and would require payment. This applies to items you are looking to source including aircraft or shares in an aircraft as well as if you are promoting your services in order to find work.

* Can I add multiple images to my advert?

Not at the moment unfortunately, we are working on it though so watch this space!
