We Have the Knowledge and Chemistry to Exceed your Lofty Goals
Lawson Aircraft Sales in Argyle, Texas has more than 35 years of experience buying and selling aircraft worldwide. That’s quite the impressive resume, but we’re not naive to think you haven’t heard similar longevity stats from other jet sales companies. We’re not the only qualified aircraft broker out there, and we know that.
But where Lawson is different is that we were created to solve an age-old problem for customers who find themselves relying on multiple entities to get their unique transactions completed. We are a broker and a dealer, and our knowledge covers everything from sales to technical maintenance, consulting services, project management, and aircraft history and records review. What that means is we can come into any transaction and take over as if we were the clients’ personal aviation department. Rather than hire a separate consultant or bring in directors of maintenance from outside buyer and seller flight departments, one phone call to Lawson will save time, money and other valuable resources for private buyers and sellers, entrepreneurs, and aviation companies worldwide.
We represent you from the very first phone call all the way to the day you sit down at the closing table.
