I gotta know what the commission on that is... And if you're commission + base or pure commission lol

Base + Commish. It's not as big as people expect. I do the job because I love it. I know there's sales jobs in Technology/Software that pay better. You could never find me working inside that industry though.

Former IT and then Marketing employee. Weird I know right! I currently have a fixed-wing license but am now working on attaining my rotor license.

I am in the aircraft sales side not the parts side. That was for 1 aircraft. Honestly, it took putting in the time to learn and navigate the business and customers, starting at the bottom and a lot of passion. Then I was given the opportunity to join the sales team and I've ran with it. I've been with my company for 7 years.

I've been passionate about aviation for along time. Just took a while to get into the role I really wanted to be in.

You'd actually probably laugh.. The job is fun, rewarding and unique but we like to say that we do this job because we love it.. not because it  makes us a lot of money. Base + Commish is great and helps my family live, but I'm not loaded ha!

It's fun for sure but customers and their teams are extremely tough negotiators. They didn't become wealthy by being stupid with their money. They're smart customers.

Yeah, that's expected and probably built into the pricing structure...

Also, just helicopters. Not airplanes. I do fly airplanes though.

Congrats. That's awesome. I've been trying to get my foot in the door of the used airplane/helicopter market for work. 

Any tips you could give a guy?

I will just say it has to do with payments. I'm keeping it vague so it won't look like I'm trying to pitch.

Talking about the financing side or what?

Kind of. Not so much financing, but the payments side of it. If someone wanted to pay and not finance, do they just send a wire transfer to your company? What are the biggest concerns when someone is paying cash? Do you do KYC verification in house? Thanks @wingsNrotors. Just trying to get some insight so I can try and go after the used airplane market. lol
