1999  Southern Aircraft Sales was founded in Christchurch, New Zealand. 

2003  The business was incorporated and with considerable full time entrepreneurial drive Southern Aircraft Sales Ltd (SASL) quickly became a leading aviation brokerage, valuation and light aircraft leasing business in the Australasia / Pacific region.

2004  Aircraft valuations were added to SASL professional business services. 

2005  International aircraft delivery was added to the aircraft brokerage services.

2009  SASL affiliation to the NZ Institute of Plant and Machinery Valuers

2012  Classified adverts were added to SASL business services in tandem with the traditional aircraft brokerage.

2013  Traditional brokerage services ceased in favour of classified advertising.

2017  Hangar247 digital classifieds platform commenced development.

2018  Hangar247 platform goes live.

'"Southern Aircraft Sales commenced in 1999 and it is best known for breaking the mould of traditional aircraft and helicopter dealerships in the Australasia / Pacific region, by pioneering an aviation brokerage that operated purely digitally at a time when the internet was in its infancy and the term 'ecommerce' was largely unheard of.

Back in the late 1990's websites were very much the poor cousin to traditional sale yards and print advertising right across the transport industry. What SASL was doing then was considered very avant-garde and regarded with much skepticism - yet today this original digital model is mainstream and the global industry standard."
