Used small plane sales are taking off

The Wichita Eagle reports that small aircraft sales are rising, thanks to a strong economy and growing demand for planes. 2006 was the fifth year in a row that used small plane sales were up.

The demand for new planes is actually helping used aircraft sales. Orders for new planes take time to fill. Customers are buying used planes rather than wait for an order.

The hassle of increased security at airports is another factor. Small planes give businesses an option to fly with more flexible schedules and with fewer delays.

I have a runway for sale. What are the odds that a private individual would want to buy it.

That's a good question. I guess it would depend on where it is located.

Any other readers have a suggestion?
