History

Southern Aircraft Sales was founded by Mr. Justin Sollitt on a part time basis in 1999 in Christchurch, New Zealand that emanated from his lifelong passion for aviation and flying.

From 2003 the business was incorporated and developed on a full time basis, and with considerable entrepreneurial drive Southern Aircraft Sales Ltd (SASL) quickly became a leading aviation brokerage, valuation and light aircraft leasing business in the South Pacific region.

In 2004 aviation valuations was added to SASL core business services. 

In 2012 SASL met the market demand and added online classified adverts to its business in tandem with the traditional aircraft brokerage service.

In 2017 the Hangar 247 aviation market platform was developed by Justin Sollitt and Craig Ray.

"Southern Aircraft Sales commenced in 1999 by breaking the mould of traditional aircraft and helicopter dealerships by pioneering an aviation brokerage in the South Pacific region that operated purely online at a time when the internet was in its infancy and the term 'e-commerce' was largely unheard of.  Back in the late 1990's websites were very much the poor cousin to traditional sales yards and print advertising right across the transport industry.  

What SASL was doing then was considered very avant-garde, yet today our original model is now the global industry standard and SASL is known worldwide."
