Director of Sales & Acquisitions

David F. Maruna has been providing consulting, research, acquisition and sales services for the Business Aircraft Industry for over forty years, specializing in complex international sales transactions.

In 1982 Maruna conceived, constructed and developed the first new FBO at Burke Lakefront Airport in over 21 years.  This dramatic new state of the art facility brought many new corporate clients and showcased Maruna's penchant for quality and integrity.  After 13 years as CEO, Maruna returned full time to corporate aircraft consulting and sales.

Over the years, and working closely with corporate flight departments throughout the USA, Maruna became instrumental in setting up flight departments for such giants as Parker-Hannifin and Reliance Electric, many who depended on Maruna to supply new aircraft for their fleets.  At the same time international purchase and sales became an important part of Maruna's vast experience. Guiding clients successfully through the ever changing and complex international regulations has taken him to every continent, and his efforts were as unique as selling a GIV owned by the Sahara and Luxor Casino developer to the World Bank and Trust of China, and the acquisition and importation of Daimlier Corporation's jet aircraft which operated in South Africa.  Maruna has completed serval EMB 120 Brasilia aircraft sales internationally to Israel, South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Brazil. Locating, analyzing and recommending 30-50 seat commuter aircraft and handling all aspects of their acquisition and sales has become second nature to him.

Maruna was the past Marketing Director of the now prestigious aircraft sales organization (N.A.R.A.) National Aircraft Resale Association. And now with Deer Horn Aviation Ltd. Co. he brings his expertise to prospective new or up-grading owners with a genuine and refreshing integrity.  Having flown hundreds of different aircraft himself and working with Heads of State, corporate leaders and successful entrepreneurs, Maurna has a unique history of matching each buyer with the best aircraft at the best price and directs the complicated international transactions professionally and with precision.  Virtually an expert in Pre-Owned Aircraft Purchasing and Resales, Maruna possesses top-notch market knowledge, pricing and value trends and guarantees a personal and in-depth approach for each owner or buyer.
