Who We Are

Premier Aircraft Sales is a global leader in the sale of new and preowned piston and turbine aircraft. Founded in 2003, Premier is the largest U.S. authorized dealer for Diamond Aircraft. With over 2,000 sales to date, we’re a leading dealer in the sale of personally-flown aircraft, from new Diamond singles and twins through turbine aircraft like Meridians, TBMs, Pilatus, King Airs and VLJs.

The company is also one of the largest sellers and brokers of Piper, Mooney, Cessna, Beechcraft, Cirrus and other aircraft. The company has Diamond Sales and Service Center locations in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Fort Worth, Texas and Norwood, Massachusetts.

Our Expertise

Our sales team has unsurpassed brand knowledge (more than 330 years of combined general aviation sales experience) in piston and turbine aircraft. With 10 licensed pilots on staff, who have more than 90,000 combined hours of flight time, we have the expertise to recommend the absolute best aircraft for purchase, whether for personal or business use. We work hard to ensure our customers receive the very best value possible, on new purchases and trades.

Your representative is personally involved in all aspects of your transaction, from advising you on the right aircraft and price point for your mission to helping you find financing and insurance, coordinating pre-buy inspections, solving problems, and overseeing the closing and delivery processes.

Our Mission

We are a high-integrity company, devoted to our customers, our partners and our employees. Our mission is to be the national leader in sales of high-quality, personally flown aircraft. We intend to reach our sales goal, in part, by being the best customer service company in the industry. Whether buying your first or your tenth airplane, our sales and support team is totally dedicated to making the process a truly enjoyable one.

Exclusive Diamond Aircraft Authorized Dealer

 Training  Financing and Insurance Trades Aircraft Records History  

The most important part of each transaction is making sure you get the proper training in your plane. We’ll make sure the transition is a safe and rewarding experience.



We handle it. We have longstanding relation- ships with all of the leading sources for aircraft financing and insurance. We also work with sources that can often handle financing deals that can’t get done anywhere else.


We take trades. Often, buying an airplane means disposing of your old one. Unlike independent brokers or small dealers, we have the financial strength to pay cash for marketable aircraft.



Aircraft logs: an “open book.” We scan logbooks, PDF them, and send them to you so you can take all the time you need studying the maintenance history of an aircraft. The goal: no surprises.
