The End


Post Image

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I must close my doors due to personal reasons.  I have tried everything possible to keep Fast Aviation going and it is not physically or emotionally possible anymore.  I feel that I have let everyone down.

You Have No Excuses Now! Third Class Medical Reform


When someone tells me they can’t get a medical or don’t try to get one because they believe they won’t get it, I call them on it. Now, this is not the case with everyone but a lot of pilot’s are timid to try to get a medical after a health issue arises because once the FAA denies you, it becomes difficult to obtain it again.

She was an inspiration to me when we got kicked off eBay less than 2 years ago. It was what pushed me to start Hangar Swap so my fellow aviators had an amazing place to buy and sell […]

Why the aviation industry is in a downward spiral.


What am I going to do with all these aircraft parts lying around?  Where do you sell airplane parts?  Where do you buy airplane parts?  What is this worth? By Rachel Payne, Owner of Fast Aviation These are the commonly asked question I get as an aircraft salvage business owner.
