What is GFS?
GFS is short for GliderForSale.
GliderForSale is a brand new service which allows glider pilots and clubs to advertise their gliders.
What is different about GFS?
GliderForSale differentiates itself from other classified ad sites, by using social media. By uploading every advertisement to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram we guarantee a bigger audience for your ad.
The goal is to become the number 1 marketplace for second hand gliders. GFS offers a more user-friendly environment than any other site out there. Completely free of charge and with a personal hands-on approach, GFS is the place to sell your glider.
GliderForSale is found and run by two young Belgian glider pilots, who are based at EBBT (Brasschaat). Who, in their spare time (when not flying), spend their time selling gliders via GFS. They go by the names of: Alexander Mariën, aged 20 (Founder) & Quinten Hermans, aged 17 (Co-Founder). Together with Skylegs, they are at your service.
