Light aircraft

Arkle Finance has helped fund the purchase of many light aircraft and we can help you too with our light aircraft mortgage.

What we finance

The aircraft we can finance includes, but is not limited to:

  • Fixed wing aeroplanes
  • Helicopters
  • Light business jets
  • Light sports aircraft
  • Cabin class aircraft
  • Single and twin piston aircraft
  • Propeller and jet powered aircraft
  • Microlights
  • Gyrocopters
  • Gliders
  • Airships
  • Hot air balloons
  • Simulators
  • Ground handling and airfield equipment

Whether you have your eye on a microlight or a helicopter, or you want to sail the skies in a hot air balloon, a light aircraft can bring you years of enjoyment. But if you’ve started doing your research – or you have owned a light aircraft before – you’ll know that they can be expensive in terms of running and upkeep, with an even more expensive initial outlay. That’s where Arkle Finance comes in.

We recently assisted an aerial photography company with refinancing their Reims Cessna, which is fitted with photographic cameras. After providing the £45,000 aircraft mortgage, we are also looking to help this company with additional finance for their IT equipment.

We also helped a consumer to finance a brand new EuroFOX Tail Dragger directly from a light aircraft supplier. The consumer took out a £52,000 aircraft mortgage.

Arkle Finance has helped fund the purchase of many light aircraft and we can help you too with our light aircraft mortgage. The aircraft or helicopter must be listed on the Civil Aviation Register, have a current Airworthiness Certificate and be registered and located in the UK at the time of purchase.

Refinance Options

If you already own equipment, Arkle Finance can help you with any refinancing you may need. Refinance is a finance facility offering a quick way for you to access the value of your asset and spend the money where you really need it. For example, you may need to carry out some refurbishment or maintenance work on your equipment or transportation. Refinancing this equipment allows you to unlock the finances you need to carry out this work. If you would like to release equity in an asset nearing the end of its finance agreement, contact us to find out more about the refinancing options we offer.
