About Us

Raptor Aviation is a global aircraft sales / brokerage company has become one of the premier brokers of ex-military aircraft along with the corporate turboprop & business jet market and helicopters.  Approximately 70% of our business is international.

While we continue to deal in the typical corporate markets, we can fully outfit an aircraft (fix wing or helicopter) for air ambulance service and have delivered such aircraft all over the world.  We also work with militaries and government contractors for specialized aircraft in a variety of rolls.  Our partner company is very strong in avionics upgrades including work for many OEMs as well as designing, certifying and kitting upgrades to be performed at the customer’s location.  We can do upgrades for both Western and Eastern Bloc aircraft. 

The principal of Raptor Aviation is Albert Heidinger.  Albert has over 22,000 hours flight time---the majority of it as a widebody international captain but also current in general aviation aircraft and fighter/trainer aircraft.  Albert has been involved with general aviation since 1976 and in some way or another always been buying, selling, or helping start some type of aviation related company.  These many years of experience give him a very deep understanding of the multiple aircraft on the market today.  Having travel to over 90 countries, Albert has a good understanding of what the local needs are just about anywhere in the world. 

As you can see Raptor Aviation is a highly experienced company that is well placed to help in the selection, acquisition, and upgrade of nearly any type of aircraft a client desires.  We have very good contacts worldwide and the ability to locate the best value aircraft for our clients.

We also maintain DDTC / ITAR registered thus allowing us to deal with aircraft and equipment that most dealers don’t have the ability to handle.
