Why is AERIALSURVEY.com’s Survey Aircraft Leasing marketplace better than using Controller.com, AVBuyer, or similar?
1. We’re Focused. There are dozens of "aircraft for sale" websites, but it takes hours to find aircraft for lease, and filtering for a survey aircraft is virtually impossible. Our focus is on serving the aerial survey market and we are the most well-known and respected provider of carefully curated and pre-owned aerial survey equipment in the world. The people who visit AERIALSURVEY.com are the exact target audience for your aircraft lease.
2. We’re Low Risk. This is a niche industry, and we need to be sure we are marketing accurate and legitimate survey aircraft leases for our clients. We review every Leasing listing before it gets posted on our site. Because listing on AERIALSURVEY.com is a paid service, we also know our lessors have a financial stake in representing their listings appropriately.
How do you verify listings?
We take the following actions to verify each Lessor and listing.
Automated Email verification
We check the Lessor's website to confirm that it is a legitimate business
We review each listing to make sure it includes appropriate pictures and leasing details.

Why was my listing not approved?
Here are a few reasons why your listing may not have been approved. Your email will clarify why your listing was not approved.
Your aircraft does not fit our aerial survey niche.
When a Lessee is interested in a listing, they will click the Contact Lessor button. The Lessor will receive an email and the Lessee's contact information will also appear as a Lead in the Lessor's marketplace portal. From that point on, it is up to each Lessor to respond directly to the potential Lessee. All communication is done outside of the AERIALSURVEY.com platform. Visit our Keeping Safe Guidelines to ensure safe communications and transactions.
Will there be a leasing contract to sign?
Absolutely. Each lessor will use their own contract which will specify:
Leasing prices, terms, conditions, limitations, etc.
Mobilization / Demobilization details
What do I need to disclose about the aircraft I’m listing?
Please disclose all the relevant details to help a potential lessee understand if the lease will fit their project. For example, a Lessee may want:
When it is available for lease (Available now, Available Feb - April, etc.)
Where aircraft is registered (FAA, EASA, etc.)
Where aircraft is hangared
Aircraft configuration details (seats, photos and dimensions of the hatch(es)
Modifications to exhaust pipes or other modifications that support remote sensing projects
Details on aircraft endurance, capacity, collection speed, etc.
Mobilization / Demobilization expectations
What fees / costs lessee will need to pay
How you prefer payment (deposit, invoice timing, etc.)
My aircraft is not leased. What should I do?
Remember that our industry is seasonal. Key times for listings are just before leaf-on and leaf-off as our clients book their projects. Consider if your lease is priced right. We're happy to share our experience in lease rates to help you make decisions.
How much is your fee?
We charge a monthly subscription fee to list your survey aircraft on our marketplace. Please visit our pricing page to learn more.
Can I get a price list for all aircraft leases?
We do not send out price lists, but we encourage you to sign up for our Newsletter to learn about featured lease listings.
How can I cancel my listing?
You may remove any listing at any time. Simply log into your account and update the status of each listing. You can cancel your monthly marketplace subscription at any time in your account settings. Refer below to our Refund policy.
How can I add a new listing?
With the Individual plan, you may post a single aircraft for lease. You may upgrade to the Popular plan at any time which provides for up to 5 listings. If you have a larger fleet available for lease, you'll do best with our Large Fleet plan that provides for unlimited listings.
Can I also list my Survey Aircraft on Controller.com or AVBuyer?
You may list your aircraft on whatever marketplaces you choose. We are confident that our marketplace provides you access to the target audience for your lease.
I leased my survey aircraft from another listing. Can I get a refund?
Congratulations on your lease. Don’t forget to update the status of your listing on our site as “Leased.” You may list another aircraft on our marketplace or cancel your subscription at any time. We cannot provide a refund for your subscription if you cancel before the end of your monthly subscription. When you cancel, your membership will stay active until your subscription expires at the end of the month.
My aircraft is not used for aerial survey. Can I still list it?
Our niche marketplace is for aerial survey clients. People visit AERIALSURVEY.com because they know the website is targeted to the survey community. If your aircraft is used for other purposes such as cargo or charters, our marketplace may not be the best fit for you.
