We are 3 partners in our 182Q that we picked up from Aircraft Sales on October 31, 2005. We had each owned a plane previously, so we had a specific list of the equipment and quality of the plane that we wanted to buy.
We looked for months and were amazed at the amount of work (time, money and probably aggravation) that would have been required to bring the planes we saw up to the standards that we wanted.
Then we met Matt and our search was over. He had a plane that was partially refurbished and not yet sold. We were able to pick our exterior and interior colors, the equipment list, and other extras that we wanted installed on our plane. It was an effortless process.We are based in Fort Myers, Fl and since the purchase have flown the plane about 350 hours including trips to the Bahamas, Georgia and New Jersey.
Since purchasing the plane we have only had to spend money on routine maintenance and adding additional equipment.
The plane flies great and performs flawlessly, If we decide to buy another plane in the future, all we will do is call Mattt – place our order- and wait for delivery.
As You Know I Am A New Pilot, My First Plane.
I Always Knew I Would Feel More Comfortable In My Own Plane.i Was Warned By Every Experienced Pilot I Knew To Never Buy From A Broker Or Aircraft Sales Person. They Suggested I Buy From A Private Owner.
Well,your Pa-32 300 Caught My Eye. It Was What I Was Looking For.boy,were My Friends Wrong. Buying My First Plane From You Was A Wonderful Experience. I Can’t Say That I Have Ever Bought A Car Where The Sale Went So Well.your Personality And Experience And Of Course The Quality Planes You Sell Make It A Real Joy.
My Pilot Friends Have To Eat Their Own Words. In Fact They Are Now Referring New And Old Pilots To You In The Future.
I Am Truly A Happy Customer.

To Whom It May Concern:
My wife and I have owned several airplanes over the last 20 years, one of which I even built with my nephew who is an engineer at Cessna, so I am fairly knowledgeable about airplane parts, prices, values, etc. Having always been a â€œdo-it-yourselferâ€, and having bought a used car from a â€œdealerâ€, I was not too enthused to think about doing so with an airplane.
Realizing very quickly that a good used airplane will hold its value if it is restored to near-new condition, and that it can be done far less expensively by someone who â€œknows the ropesâ€ as to companies that they use who are fast and experienced, I was pleased to find out about Matt and AirCraft Sales Inc. and the value that they bring to the plane acquisition picture.
They stood behind everything they said they would do, even when things were pointed out after the buyer inspection that needed attention. I would highly recommend their company to anyone in the market for a good used airplane.

To Whom It May Concern:
I picked up my Cessna 182Q from Aircraft Sales Inc. in October 2005. I had been looking for a nice pre-owned 182 since April 2005 and was frustrated with the logistical issues, misrepresentations and lack of any assurance that whatever I bought would not require a lot of work. When I found ASI on the internet, I was immediately interested in learning more. Once I spoke with Matt and saw photos of the production process and finished airplanes, I was sold.Since then I have flown my 182 over 300 hours to many destinations and acquired my instrument rating. My engine is still under warranty and the paint and interior are still beautiful. The aircraft has consistently performed beyond my expectations. Everywhere I go, many other pilots think I have a new plane. When I tell them itâ€™s a 1978, they are always impressed with the quality of the workmanship.
Hank and Matt run a first-class, up-front operation. They have stood behind their work and made the entire process simple and enjoyable. I have been extremely satisfied with the entire experience, and would recommend ASI to anyone who is looking for a high quality product at a fraction of the cost of a new aircraft.

Dear Matt & Hank:
We have had Cessna 182EA for two months now, and we wanted to let you know just how pleased we are with the entire transaction.
As first-time buyers, we were painfully aware of how little we knew about the details of selecting and purchasing a plane. Since we had also had some poor experiences renting older planes, we began our search looking at new (read: expensive) aircraft; it didn’t take long to decide we would rather have someone else take the initial depreciation hit. We then moved on to five to seven year old aircraft, only to find avionics that were already a generation old and engines that often already had over 1200 hours. We were therefore immediately attracted to your concept of a completely refurbished plane with impeccable credentials at less than half the price of a new aircraft.
Margit and I have two things to say about Aircraft Sales Inc.: first, the product is exactly as advertised. Our 182 draws admiring glances and comments wherever we go with its impeccable paint job, new leather interior and first-class avionics. The overhauled engine starts and runs as new. We feel proud, and most importantly, safe in her. Second, dealing with the two of you was a pleasure from start to finish. You were patient with our never-ending questions, responsive to our concerns and completely straightforward with all information. The entire process was easy, quick and relaxed. I definitely would do business with you again without reservation.
Thanks for a job very well done, indeed.
Margit & Henry Donaldson
Dear Matt, I just wanted to drop you a quick note telling you how pleased I am with the Skylane, which was delivered to me last Sunday. Based on the great reference by my old friend Vicki Scoones, I purchased the plane sight unseen. I was not the lease disappointed. The aircraft is everything you represented and more. I would be happy to have you use me as a reference. Should any of your prospective customers wish, they may contact me at email@example.com.
Best wished for your continued success.
Very Truly Yours,

To whom it may concern; On October 20th 2006 I purchased a 1980 Piper turbo Saratoga N82654 from aircraft sales inc.I flew Down the week before to look at the plane and meet matt and his dad.I had been looking for a new plane for over a year and I can tell you that this was the first time that a plane looked as good as the pictures and was as nice as it was presented to be. both the paint and interior work on this plane are of very high quality. I have had two different pilots at my airport ask me if it was a new Saratoga.If I ever upgrade again I will simply call matt and have him find and refurbish what im looking for.Matt is honest and easy to deal with, call me and I will tell you so in person.

Matt and Hank, I would like to thank you for making the purchases of my â€œNEWâ€ aircraft trouble-free and enjoyable. N 5230N is a joy to fly and because of the refurbishment, it is the best looking 182 at Lakefront New Orleans. If I can be of any help to you please do not hesitate to Call.

To whom it may concern:
My name is George Fishtorn and I purchased a beautiful 1985 C-182R Skylane on March 15th, 2006 from A.S.I.
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my experience dealing with the Father and Son team of Mr. Hank Kozub and his son Matt. Most of all my dealings were done directly with Matt Kuzob. From day one Matt was very up front and professional but not so professional that you felt like you were dealing with a banker.
I must have called Matt 50 times in a two week time frame working on details and so on (mostly excitement) and Matt would do the same, even on week nights or week ends Matt was always available. When I finally got the opportunity to view the plane (after my mechanic did the pre-buy) we took her for a ride and I was sold. The condition of the plane and everything I knew about it was better than I expected.
I purchased the plane, had a nice lunch with Matt and his father and a few days later I flew the plane back to my home state of Florida . It was a great trip cruising at 9500′ msl with a nice tail wind and we made it back in no time at all.
Iâ€™m still very excited and a very proud customer of A.S.I. and I wanted to share my experience with you in case your looking at one of their airplanes.
Feel free to call me with any concerns you may have and I would be glad to answer them to the best of my ability with the experience I have had.

They answered any question’s I had and after the purchase, they took care of any of the little problem’s that came up. (there were very few) Anyone looking to buy an airplane from these guys should feel free to email me. I will tell you all about the good experience I had with my 1st. airplane purchase from Aircraft Sale Inc.
