When searching aircraft for sale, things can get confusing quick! You know you want a single engine piston, but there are so many choices out there. Do you buy a used Cessna 172 or a Cirrus SR22? What about a Mooney Ovation or a Piper Arrow? How do you decide which is right for you. Of course, when you have it narrowed down to a couple airplanes, you should check out each one individually and research them extensively. In the meantime, some used aircraft websites contain features to help you find out which airplane is right for you.
One feature that is useful is a ‘compare’ feature found on some used aircraft websites. With a few clicks of the mouse, you can send several aircraft to the compare screen, where you will find basic information about many of the popular aircraft on the market. This can help you quickly view which airplane has the specs and features you are looking for.
This feature is also nice for comparing similar aircraft for sale that you are interested in. Maybe you found three really nice Cirrus SR22s and you want to compare them. After adding them to the compare screen, you can view the details of those aircraft side by side to see which one is the perfect match for you!
