What is an Aircraft Purchase Agreement?

An aircraft purchase agreement is one of a suite of legal documents required for the purchase of an aircraft. The aircraft purchase agreement lays out the terms and conditions between parties to transfer ownership of an aircraft from the seller to the buyer.

It is important to make sure that an aircraft purchase agreement is airtight as the purchase of an aircraft is governed by a whole host of complex regulations and laws. This agreement often contains inspection details, closing costs and date, and what the rights and responsibilities of both parties would be in the event of a termination of the agreement.
