The subject says it all. I posted a wanted to buy post and I believe it got deleted with no notification to me. Thanks. John

The forum is not intended for use as a marketplace. We prohibit the use of the site by dealers for selling aircraft (i.e. no commercial use), and also discourage users from soliciting offers to sell. There's a limited exception for senior members who can use the Classifieds forum. I believe this is spelled out in the Forum Guidelines, but perhaps the wording needs to be clarified.

I'm a long time Diamond owner and am looking to upgrade. It is somewhat surprising to me that I can't create a post looking to buy an Diamond aircraft on this site. Let me know if I need to purchase such a posting (and the price of doing so) or if it's okay to create a posting "looking to buy a DA40 or DA42". As an owner, I would find it useful to have people being able to post a "Looking to buy a DA20". regards. John

It shouldn't be surprising since it's posted in the Forum Guidelines and you don't see other people posting offers to buy or sell aircraft on here outside of the Classifieds section. There are plenty of places on the web where you can find Diamond aircraft to purchase.
