Stone Aviation International (SAI) was founded in 2002 to provide aircraft sales and acquisition services to the commercial and military aircraft markets in the United States and abroad.
Initially founded as a trading company for small and medium sized corporate aircraft, SAI has since expanded its international footprint to offer specialized project management ranging from helicopter component certifications to commercial aircraft acquisitions and P2F freighter conversions.
