Aviation expert examines rising values in vintage aircraft

Licensed aviator Samuel Brozina has announced the market for vintage aircraft is rising, with demand outstripping supply, the pilot said.

Sales for late 2019 and early 2020 reflect values that may never have been higher among vintage aircraft, according to Brozina.

Prices have increased steadily for the last few years, but as fewer vintage aircraft remain, demand continues to rise. Brozina anticipates a steeper and steeper increase in prices over the coming years.

Right now, prices range from around USD 25,000 for some of the most popular and readily available vintage aircraft. This is up approximately USD 5,000 from closer to USD 20,000 just a few years ago. Immaculate examples of the most desirable vintage aircraft can sell for hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars.
