Flying.com has been sold to UsedAirplanes.com for $1.1 million.
According to the press release, the domain last changed hands in September last year, for $845,000, which gives the seller a very nice return on a quick flip.
“The amount of traffic Flying.com will generate will obviously enhance the amount of leads our brokers will receive for their used airplanes and aircraft,” said CEO Mark Horne.
While it’s undoubtedly a category killer for aviators, the domain doesn’t currently seem to rank highly in search engines for the term “flying”.
The related domain Fly.com sold for $1.8 million in January 2009. Last week, Pilot.com was sold through Sedo for $300,000.
