alabeo Sale???

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if Alabeo is having a sale this year? The last few years it has been in September or October and before that it was right after the Carenado sale.

If you look in the Bargain Hunter's Shack there were some sales for both.  Sorry you missed them.

Thank you for pointing me to the Bargain Hunter's Forum.  Did check and the last Carenado sale was earlier this month, Alabeo's was September of 2017, nothing yet this year.  I have been watching closely for an Alabeo sale since January of this year.  This includes their Facebook page, website and on a few store sites.

Alabeo products are mixed in with the Carenado aircraft so pretty positive they had some on sale this month.  You don't know until you click on the aircraft whether it has the Alabeo or Carenado name.

None of the Alabeo planes were on sale, Carenado only, and mostly their old stuff, apart from the TurboCommander. (yes, I know the difference bw the two) 🙂

I was looking for a sale from them also, disappointing.

Exactly. I have a list of Alabeo planes I want, new and old, and checked them during the Carenado sale and also have checked them on a regular basis on other online stores and they have not been on sale this year.  Also, I went back five years on the Alabeo Facebook page and they have announced every sale and the last one was Sept. 2017.  Hopefully, they will have a sale early in the new year.

There were Alabeo models on sale this winter - I bought the Cessna 207 50% off from the Carenado website, and  they had the Cessna 177 50% off also. But only for the first day or so.

I only look for Xplane 11 models, there may well have been others.

Cheers
Keith

I've also been watching and waiting for an Alabeo sale. Bought the Carenado 500S Aero Commander after running out of patience, but was really looking for one or two Alabeo aircraft.

If they do come with a sale now, I'm afraid my funds are gone and the window of opportunity has closed.

Again, if you want an Alabeo developed aircraft on sale, check out the Carenado sales.

Thank you again, will be more diligent checking the Carenado site next year when they have their sale.  I have noticed for awhile the Alabeo planes show up on the Carenado site but not vice-versa.  I did check my preferred online store everyday and the Carenado site every few days during the last Carenado sale  and did not see any Alabeo planes on sale. As Keithb77 mentioned maybe the Alabeo planes were just on sale for a day or two and just on the Carenado site only.

They are the same.  When I get a request for setting up a new Alabeo forum, it comes from Carenado.

Again, didn't see any Alabeos in the Carenado sale that I recognized. The sale was extremely heavy on the Carenado side of the two.

Agreed, there were one or two Alabeo aircraft I wanted to get, they never went on sale. Didn't even notice any other Alabeo aircraft on sale at all.

I also checked, most Carenado aircraft were on sale at varying degrees of discounted prices, but all of the Alabeo aircraft were full price.  I was considering their C404 Titan, but decided to stick with the Flysimware C402 and then bought the Flysimware C441 when it went on sale.
