Introducing Columbia Select Pre-Owned


Columbia Select Pre-owned

(Groton, CT, July 23rd, 2020)   The Columbia® group of aviation companies today announced that it has launched its Columbia Select Pre-Owned class of aircraft. These are aircraft offered for sale by Columbia that have undergone a rigorous analysis of maintenance records, usage history and component times, in addition to interior and exterior condition. The aircraft then receive an accurate valuation based on Columbia’s proprietary market intelligence. Consequently, prospective buyers will benefit from a complete picture of the aircraft’s maintenance status, market value and projected operating cost.

“We originally ordered many of these aircraft from the factory and have maintained them since new”, said Columbia co-founder Art Maurice. “Our 40 years of experience, knowledge of the market, and the fact that we know everything about the service history of these aircraft means that they represent superior value for our customers. However, Columbia Select Pre-Owned is more than just the records analysis and accurate valuation of the aircraft. Perhaps more importantly, it is also the closing, insurance, training, financing and ownership assistance that we include with every aircraft sale. It’s the way in which we are always there for our owners when they have questions or need an expert opinion. Columbia has a loyal family of owners who trust our judgement and integrity, some of whom have purchased their last 5 aircraft from us. Columbia Select Pre-Owned communicates our expertise and capabilities to the industry and to anyone considering stepping up to personal aircraft ownership.”
