aviationscouts GmbH

Supplier of Surplus Seats and Service Provider

Aviationscouts GmbH is a pioneer in our field as a supplier of surplus seats and online platform service provider. With aviationgate.com we provide an online platform that revolutionizes how buyers and sellers of aircraft passenger seats do business. We help them move these items from where they’re no longer needed to where they are still wanted.

Since launching in 1997, we have been constantly growing and developing our services, increasing the sophistication of our database, our client network and our range of services.

Today, we are headquartered in Lichtenfels, Germany, but have sales agents around the world, searching for the best surplus passenger seats and facilitating deals that will satisfy buyers and sellers alike. We can also handle the storage, refurbishment and recycling of these still valuable items.

aviationgate.com: A revolutionary marketplace for aircraft interiors
To cope with the growing industry, sellers and buyers need an efficient platform.
Based on well-established growth rates, the number of aircraft will double in the next 15 years. Due to this, there will also be a growing demand for surplus interiors. More and more airlines will be looking for reasonably priced aircraft interiors with short lead times, for example, by using refurbished stock from different sellers. In an increasingly challenging environment, more efficiency is definitely what most sellers and buyers are looking for.

Company Profile

  • Refurbishment

    We specialize in giving ‘as removed’ passenger seats a second life. In our German warehouse, we and our onsite overhaul partners clean, overhaul, repair and pack surplus seats and other interior parts, according to EASA and FAA requirements.

    As one of the leading companies in our industry to provide this kind of service, we are also planning to introduce a process-oriented online quality system, based on EN9100, to increase efficiency.

  • Sales and Marketing

    Our internet portal – www.aviationgate.com – brings together buyers and sellers from around the world to one convenient platform. Sellers can list their aircraft interiors with a simple step-by-step process. We review every proposal within 24 hours to guarantee only the highest-quality listings. The offer is only released and announced to worldwide buyers after it has been confirmed.

    Buyers search for offers and filter, sort or compare results to request proposals online. We promote your offers for you, then negotiate within your chosen parameters, and create a full proposal within one working day.
