Here is a copy of a press release we issued earlier today about our new aircraft comparison feature. Check it out by using this example here of a Gulfstream G550.
GlobalAir.com revamped its Aircraft Exchange site in early 2010 to include a treasure trove of new features. Yet the company refused to stop there.
This month it added another new tool that will make life much easier for those in the market to purchase an aircraft.
Programmers at GlobalAir.com, with the help of several aircraft brokers, developed an in-depth aircraft comparison tool launched this week. Prospective buyers can use it to contrast an unlimited number of a type of aircraft to seek certain features such as interior layout, an avionics suite or maintenance updates.
Other comparison aspects include when and what particular paint job looks like, engine specifications, propeller / APU times, and a section for options and features.
“This is a technology-driven achievement,” said Jeff Carrithers, president of GlobalAir.com. “Now it will be so much easier for aircraft brokers and end users to have a research tool to compare an unlimited number of aircraft at the click of a button.”
GlobalAir.com representatives will show off the new feature, along with other site upgrades, later this month at EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisc., July 26 - Aug. 1. They encourage you to visit them at Hangar D, Booth 4028.
“It is informative, easy to navigate and pleasing to the eye,” Carrithers said. “The aircraft broker/dealer community is going to thank us. We’re helping buyers perform research that normally is burdensome to the sales process because of the lack of information. The more details you can give a buyer, especially on a large-ticket item like an aircraft, the more readily they can make a decision. After visiting our site, all they have to do is call, email or text a seller. Then the deal process is one step closer to being done.”
Earlier this year, GlobalAir.com performed a major overhaul to its Aircraft Exchange.
Among the many updates added, the new features allow an advertiser to post an unlimited number of aircraft images into a click-and-drag photo-flow tool, options for a seller to receive ad inquiries via text message, a feature invented by GlobalAir.com developers. A buyer also can post an aircraft to a Facebook page and has the ability to download complete specs of an aircraft, along with images and any other details a seller wants to make available.
“We’ve went all out on this new page,” Carrithers said. “Seeing an ad on our site is the next best thing to looking at an actual aircraft in person. Now that we have included this comparison feature, the sky truly is the limit for dealers displaying an aircraft on our site.”
