Courtesy Aircraft, Inc. was founded in 1957, by D.M. Clark, as a
new Cessna aircraft dealer, and grew through the 60's to include
Piper and Champion (Citabria) dealerships. In addition, Courtesy
Aircraft, Inc. was active in the sales of select used aircraft.
It was in the success of the used aircraft market that pointed
the way to the firm's current position as a World Leader in
Quality Warbird and Civilian Aircraft Sales.
In the early 70's, due to the knowledge and enthusiasm of the
founder's son, Mark Clark, today an accomplished pilot and A&P
mechanic, Courtesy Aircraft, Inc. found itself heavily involved
in sales of a new market - Warbirds. This market consisted
primarily of World War II and Korean era ex-military trainers,
fighters, and bombers such as the T-6/SNJ Texans, P-51 Mustangs,
and B-25 Mitchells.
In the early 80's, Mark purchased the company from his father
and relocated to a 13,000 square foot facility conveniently
located at the Greater Rockford Airport in Rockford, Illinois.
The business continued to prosper and another new market began
to emerge: the post modern era Warbirds such as the "L" Birds,
T-34 Mentors, O-2 Fighting Skymasters and T-28 Trojans.
With over 3,000 aircraft sold and delivered, we are extremely
proud of our longevity and accomplishments and look forward to
continuing our tradition of excellence in the sales of both
Warbirds and civilian aircraft.
