AvBid Aircraft Auctions’ next auction is slated for Saturday, Nov. 5, at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Florida.
AvBid, the nations only scheduled aircraft auction service, will offer piston singles, light twins and light sport aircraft at the upcoming event. The auction will start at 10 a.m. in AvBid’s one of a kind aircraft showroom/hangar.
AvBid’s auction facilities include ramp space for more than 100 aircraft, indoor bleacher seating for 160-plus people, large plasma screen monitors for previewing aircraft information, and live video streaming for bidders who are unable to attend the auction in person. AvBid also offers live one-on-one bidding with a personal bid assistant via telephone during its auctions.
“Our auctions are patterned after the auto auction industry with each aircraft being brought through our showroom hangar and presented to potential buyers. The aircraft’s specifications our shown on large flat screen monitors as the auctioneer describes the aircraft in detail,” stated John Nuccio, AvBid’s auction manager.
Potential bidders have ample opportunity to inspect the aircraft prior to the auction and most aircraft have their logs digitized for online viewing, he noted. AvBid uses a quick closing process that allows buyers to accept delivery of their aircraft in as little as 24 hours.
AvBid’s inaugural auction was held during Sun ’n Fun last March with the company showcasing nearly 50 aircraft. The bi-monthly event averages between 25 and 40 aircraft, many of which are sold absolute with no minimum bid requirement.
The Nov. auction all ready has numerous aircraft in the lineup, including Cessna 172s and 182s, Mooney M20Js, Lancair, Zodiak CH601, Piper Cherokees, Beechcraft Musketeer and more.
AvBid’s auction calendar for 2012 is beginning to fill up as well, with scheduled auctions at the Sebring LSA EXPO in January at at next year’s Sun ’n Fun.
