Premier Aircraft Sales Announces “Black Friday” Airplane Sale

Fort Lauderdale, FL (Nov. 11, 2011) – On Black Friday, most of America will be trudging the malls looking for deals on everything from bunny slippers to big screen TVs.

But at Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Premier Aircraft Sales, the phones will be manned from 4 a.m. Friday, November 25th through midnight for the most aggressive aircraft inventory sale in the history of the company.

"Nobody wants to go to the mall on Black Friday, but everyone likes to get an outrageous deal – especially on big-ticket items,” says Fred Ahles, president of Premier Aircraft Sales. “The day after Thanksgiving the turkeys aren’t flying…but you could be. What better way to head off on your holiday vacation than by flying to Grandma's house in your own airplane?”

On a more serious note, said Ahles, as 2011 comes to a close, the “glory days” for tax incentives for the purchase of aircraft are disappearing on December 31, 2011. 

Depreciation tax rules allowing 100% bonus depreciation of a new aircraft will be cut to 50% in 2012.  Also, the “Section 179” allowable expensing is also going to be greatly reduced in 2012. “The changes in tax law are a compelling reason to buy in 2011,” said Ahles.

Ryan Ramos, sales manager at Premier’s Concord Regional Airport office, said, "I think we are the first aircraft sales company ever to offer a Black Friday sale. Why wait outside in the cold at 4 a.m. to save $5 on a toaster when you can save tens-of-thousands on an airplane?”

Ramos said that Black Friday sale prices and available inventory can be previewed by visiting beginning on Friday, Nov. 18.
