Atlanta Jet (static display) is here in force with a selection of aircraft for sale. President Rick Steelman says his company has the upper hand because it researches each aircraft heavily. “We only deal with good clean aircraft that have tidy log books,” he says.

And while the disarray in the financial markets is taking its toll, Steelman remains upbeat. “Of course we’ve noticed it, but even on the first day of the show it was busy. Normally we don’t get good qualified customers until the second and third days,” he says.

He explains that Lawrenceville, Georgia-based Atlanta Jet’s purchases are very selective. “We look at everything. We even do our own market predictions, and a lot of the time we’re right, or very close,” he says.

And in the aircraft line-up Atlanta Jet has a - Falcon 900EX registered in the Isle of Man which, because of the British island’s self-governing laws, can offer tax breaks that extend to US citizens.

But Steelman’s pride and joy of the show is a Challenger 604. “It is beautiful, and has very low hours. It has lots of options fitted too.”
