Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT

Ignatios Mavridis

Bright Hope for Saudi Business Aviation ccording to NEXUS chairman, Abdullah Al-Sayed, Business Aviation in Saudi Arabia has never been brighter. But what exactly is fuelling his confidence? Both the domestic and international Business Aviation markets are key to growth in Saudi Arabia. With MEBAA’s support and current efforts to promote aviation here, the future of aviation within the region is on an upward trajectory. And ultimately that benefits all sectors of aviation, including the overall international aviation community. For example, over the next five years, projected industry demand is for more than 8,000 pilots and over 10,000 engineers and technicians who are required to support anticipated aircraft fleet growth. This equates to strong demand for highly-trained, qualified Saudis. The key to any growth in aviation requires a significant investment in education and training. Having begun operations in 2010 with seven employees, NEXUS has experienced year-on-year growth since its inception, now employing 700 people in 14 locations across 11 countries. Today, NEXUS Academy has four campuses (in Saudi Arabia, Rwanda, India and China), offering training courses for flight dispatchers to ground handlers; providing training in handling dangerous goods; teaching aviation English; offering flight training (from Private Pilot to ATP ratings); and from 2020, aircraft maintenance technician training.

A

Integral to Saudi Vision 2030

Naturally the anticipated growth in aviation will also have a major impact on new initiatives that will ultimately help contribute to the Kingdom’s economy beyond the oil sector, helping make aviation within the Kingdom a dominant contributor to the Saudi Vision 2030 program goals. Indeed, with Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation’s (GACA) increased commitment to Business Aviation, the future is certainly looking brighter, not only for Saudi Arabia but the overall Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) region too.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

GACA has started a revitalizing campaign to modernize and privatize the Kingdom’s aviation sector. It intends to privatize 11 airports and aviation services by 2020 and build new airports countrywide. These developments will lead to new business opportunities in aviation infrastructure needs in all areas, whether operations and maintenance, design, construction, safety, maintenance, management, workforce training development, and more. GACA has also recently entered into long-term public-private partnerships (PPPs) with companies from Germany, Singapore, Turkey and here in the Kingdom, with deals designed to invigorate the privatization agenda in line with Saudi Vision 2030. With the aviation sector leading new positive changes along with all the recent progressive changes in Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom is poised to present new aviation opportunities for all its citizens, businesses, and international investors looking at Saudi for growth and expansion. In a related area, Saudi tourism is opening-up, and will bring tremendous growth potential in private international aircraft traffic, as well as an increased demand from international passengers aboard domestic flights. And other recent changes have benefited the Business Aviation sector, including approvals to overfly Iraq that provides a more direct path to many European destinations, reduced flight times and lower fuel burns. There’s little wonder that Abdullah Al-Sayed is optimistic. Within Saudi Arabia and beyond there is much to look forward to! T

Ignatios Mavridis is currently the Marketing & Communications Director at NEXUS Flight Operations in Saudi Arabia, which is an exclusively licensed company for independent Flight Operations Services. NEXUS is the very first GACA Approved Training Center in Saudi Arabia (GACAR Part 143), a reflection of NEXUS’ and GACA’s commitment to the growing demands and needs of aviation in the Kingdom and beyond.

The client had previously financed the aircraft with one of the “big banks” with a monthly payment of $70,169 on a seven year term. With our 20-year term, his payment became $29,515 per month, allowing his business to utilize their new found cash flow. At Aircraft Finance Corporation, we base our amortization on 20 years. It is our benchmark and it works - it adds to the bottom line of our customers cash flow.

Business Aviation Market Overview

As another big year in Business Aviation draws to a close, what is the condition of the new and used aircraft sales markets? Rolland Vincent reviews the latest trends and indicators… he month of December is upon us once again, and with it hope for a successful year-end as aircraft sales and marketing teams push the throttles all the way forward in the race to the bell on December 31. Our expectation is that this year will end with the strongest orders for new business jets in more than a decade, as measured in the volume - but especially in the value - of transactions. We further expect that 2018 will be the year that the ‘Big Five’ business aircraft OEMs (Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Textron) collectively report book-to-bills above 1-to-1, a bellwether indicator that demand and supply forces have finally swung back into balance. [Note: A book-to-bill of 1-to-1 implies that new orders are

exactly matched with new deliveries in a given period.] Order backlogs at the Big Five have finally stabilized after consecutive years of decline, with at least a couple of the competitors recently announcing modest Year-over-Year (YoY) increases. This is good news indeed, but likely not yet enough to cause leadership teams to push their production rates upwards just yet.

Solid Used Jet Sales

Sales of used business jets were solid through the first half of 2018, keeping pace with the almost torrid pace of 2017 when more than 2,750 retail sales and leases were recorded by JETNET. These transactions were off about 10% YoY in

the July-September 2018 period, however, which we believe reflects the diminished quality/long-inthe-tooth status of the overall inventory, and the limited time left in the year to both buy and sell an aircraft in order to take full advantage of the stillnew US tax and depreciation laws. With several new aircraft certification programs in progress, anxious buyers and brokers are no doubt eagerly awaiting a fresh pipeline of trade-in aircraft to prime the used jet supply pump once again. With about half of the existing for-sale business jet inventory now aged more than 20 years, there is little doubt that the used market has now begun to slow down, if only recently. Are you desperately seeking a late-model, oneowner, N-registered Cessna Citation X, Citation XLS+ or Citation Sovereign+ that was only flown on Sunday and hangared every night? Are you keen to put pen to paper and close on a relatively new big cabin Bombardier Challenger 605? As they say in Wichita, Montreal and places in between, ya’ll come back later… (et bonne chance, mon ami). The reality is that aircraft brokers and dealers have been scouring every corner of the planet in search of the best available inventory, but it’s clearly become more difficult to find the match that keeps both parties in the transaction feeling like they’ve done well.

North America-Centric

Pretty much anyway you look at it, the worldwide business jet market remains very North Americacentric. In fact, the based fleet of business jets in the US and Canada surpassed 14,000 aircraft at the end of Q3 2018, an all-time high, representing 65% of the world total. The latest JETNET iQ forecast of business jet deliveries and retirements projects that North America’s share will decline only slightly over the next 10 years, reflecting the ongoing strength and resilience of the North American economy. Through mid-November 2018, JETNET records indicate that about 59% of new business jet shipments year-to-date have been to customers based in North America. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Popular New Jet Models

At press time, the Gulfstream G650/G650ER was the most delivered business jet worldwide in 2018, a remarkable feat for an aircraft program at the top end of the market. By mid-November 2018, there were already 325 Gulfstream G650/G650ER jets in service based in 40 countries, with the program averaging almost 55 deliveries per year since entryinto-service in 2012. Through mid-November 2018, the Bombardier Challenger 350 and Citation Latitude were in a neck-and-neck contest for bragging rights as the most delivered Mid-size business jet of the year, while the perennial volume leader in the Light Jet segment remains the Embraer Phenom 300/300E. The much-anticipated General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) aircraft shipments report for Q3 2018 indicated that there were 403 new business jet deliveries in the first nine months of 2018, down 4% YoY, excluding the single-engine Cirrus SF50 and twin-aisle Boeing airliners. We expect that OEMs will be very busy in Q4 2018, taking in year-end orders and completing and delivering aircraft right until the December 31 year-end deadline. Our latest forecast is that 2018 business jet shipments will come very close to matching, and may even slightly exceed 2017’s totals, although this depends to some extent on the timing of certification, entry-in-service, and production ramp-up of several new programs including the Citation Longitude, Global 7500 and Gulfstream G500.

In Summary

With so few late-model business jets on the used market, buyers are wise to consider one of the many new models on offer from the various OEMs, most of whom have reserved at least a few unsold delivery positions in the hope of closing year-end deals. Turning these late-in-the-year orders into actual deliveries in just a few weeks is no small feat, and one that is indeed worthy of year-end celebrations across the industry.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Honeywell & JETNET iQ Give New Jet Delivery Forecasts Honeywell and JETNET iQ released their latest forecasts of business jet deliveries for the coming decade. Honeywell expects around 7,700 jet shipments worth ~$251bn between 2019 and 2028, while JETNET iQ projects 7,807 aircraft between 2018 and 2027… The outlook from Honeywell proved very similar to last year’s. For the seventh year in a row its forecast represents a disappointment to those seeking improvements in the market. While the company projected that some improvement could be seen next year, it forecast the same last year - a prediction that clearly did not materialize. This was partially the result of delays to new aircraft programs, it suggested. Honeywell’s forecast figure for sales of around 7,700 jets worth approximately $251bn between 2019 and 2028 excluded Bizliners and Very Light Jets. The company said Bizliners would number approximately 200 additional units (worth ~$19bn) but it offered no estimates for Very Light Jets. Those with good memories will notice that this year’s 10-year forecast number is significantly different to last year’s (when Honeywell projected 8,300 airplanes worth $249bn would be sold by the end of 2027). Previous forecasts spanned eleven years, incorporating the current year plus the following ten. Honeywell now only looks at the upcoming ten-year period. While this offers no basis for comparison against last year, because we don’t know what last year’s numbers were, Honeywell asserts that this year’s ten-year number is around 2% 22

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

higher (in dollars), and 1% higher (in terms of units) than last year’s. According to Honeywell, this year’s jet sales will total 630640 units. If that prediction is accurate, this will be the lowest jet sales total since 2004 (592 units). Honeywell projects 2019 should see “high single digit growth” in delivery levels, however, supported by production ramp-up on new models entering service at the end of 2018 and in early 2019. Specifically, Bill Kircos, vice president of global marketing for Honeywell Aerospace, said the company expects “an eight to 10 percent higher delivery level in 2019 as the industry transitions to new models in a better used aircraft market environment,” which could put deliveries for 2019 in the 690710-unit range (approaching levels not seen since 2015).

JETNET iQ Prediction

Since 2011, JETNET iQ has been gathering data and analyzing the market. JETNET iQ updates this forecast quarterly, with the latest version being released in conjunction with Honeywell’s. For either Honeywell’s or JETNET’s forecast (for a total 7,807 aircraft between 2018 and 2027) to prove accurate, the overall market for business jets is going to need to accelerate markedly. Honeywell’s number supposes an average annual market for the next 10 years of 770 aircraft a year, while JETNET’s number requires an annual market of 781. According to Honeywell, the trend for larger cabin aircraft is

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 145


MarketIndicators Dec18.qxp_Layout 1 20/11/2018 12:44 Page 4

likely to continue, with 62% of aircraft ordered (totaling 87% of the billings) expected to be in the Large Cabin Jet category. Interest in Large Cabin Jets is higher in 2018 than in previous years, observes Honeywell, which says Mid-size Jets should account for 10% of sales (7% of billings) while Small Jets are expected to make up 28% of the market (but only 6% of billings).

Regional Demand

By region, Honeywell expects 61% of sales in the next five years to be in North America; 16% in Europe; 12% in Latin America; 7% in Asia/Pacific Rim; and 4% in the Middle East. The European number represents a 33% increase over what Honeywell projected in 2017, although only 10% of the European purchases are expected next year, as they will be impacted by Brexit negotiations and slow economic growth in the EU, suggests Honeywell. In North America, some 36% of operators expect their purchases over the five-year period to come in the first two years, down 3% from 2017 but still above the 30% worldwide average. The purchase plans of Latin American operators are down by seven percent from last year despite a recent uptick in the Brazilian market. Purchase expectations are down in Mexico, however, perhaps related to uncertainty over continued participation by the United States in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Meanwhile, purchase expectations in Asia are at their lowest level in five years, impacted by exchange rates and geopolitics. Worldwide, 14% of purchases are expected to come by the end of 2019 with an additional 40% in the two years that follow. Honeywell says 20% of its survey fleet is expected to be replaced or added to in the coming five-year period.

Utilization Forecast

JETNET iQ’s forecast presents a lot of interesting data that is not addressed in the Honeywell forecast. Among the factors listed in the JETNET iQ forecast are data on business aircraft utilization, as well as reasons that drive increases or decreases in utilization. JETNET iQ also has a measurement for “market optimism” which it defines as the net difference between the percentage of respondents who believe the industry is past its low point in the current business cycle, and those who believe the low point is still ahead. According to JETNET iQ, optimism that we are past the low point has now reached 55%, compared with only 28% two years ago. Net optimism is also higher in North America and Europe than in the rest of the world, it says.

A Word on Recruitment…

In a factor increasingly affecting Business Aviation, more than 67% of JETNET iQ respondents worldwide agreed or strongly agreed that they are experiencing difficulty recruiting or retaining aviation-related staff, including pilots, mechanics and technicians. The total was highest in North America, where 72% agreed or strongly agreed, and in Europe (60%). MI www.honeywell.com and www.jetnet.com Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Avinode: Real Evidence of US BizAv Recovery

Asian Sky Group: Dramatic Q3 Market Changes In its recent Asian Sky Quarterly report, Hong Kong-based Asian Sky Group (ASG) notes the business jet market in Asia-Pacific has changed dramatically in Q3 2018 from the beginning of the year… Jeffrey Lowe, ASG managing director, explains: “Pessimism is slowly on the rise overall across the region, but nowhere more dramatically than in China where optimism has plummeted by a whopping 46%. This is a direct result of the USChina trade war and worsening economic conditions impacting

sentiment in China. “We have also witnessed an uptick in inventory values and a slowdown in sales. More aircraft are on the market this quarter, a probable result of year-end opportunists, and some distressed sellers mixed-in too,” Lowe adds. “Regarding the slowdown in sales, we need to remember an awful lot of aircraft were sold off through the first half of the year, especially good aircraft at good prices, of which there are simply fewer now.” MI www.asianskymedia.com

Understanding the Business Aviation Market - with AVBUYER

Harry Clarke, senior commercial analyst at Avinode Group, says the North American Business Aviation industry is finally recovering after many difficult years. “We are seeing real evidence, not just hope, of Business Aviation genuinely fighting back – globally, in Europe and, critically, in the key market of North America,” says Clarke. “We’ve been analyzing flight requests submitted through Avinode [for the period 14 August 2017 – 14 August 2018, compared to the previous 12 months] and the results are very encouraging. “The growth shown reflects both increased industry activity and increased use of Avinode. Our data reveals, for example, all the leading North American destinations are enjoying increased demand for private air charter traffic.” Every airport in the top 10 mostrequested North American destinations has shown YoY growth in demand. Highlights include McCarran (up 75%), Teterboro (up almost 100%), and Van Nuys (up 103%). Likewise, every airport in the top 10 for number of requests (from passengers flying intercontinentally into North America), has shown YoY growth in demand, with Teterboro up 56%, and Opa locka Executive up 140%, among the highlights. “We are seeing rising numbers of charter requests for large-cabin, longrange and ultra-long-range aircraft,” Clarke says. “A sense of renewed and justified optimism is building throughout the industry. Not only are we watching statistical growth in Business Aviation, we are also seeing critical changes in the way the industry operates.” Clarke believes the question of whether customers will book private charter flights online has been answered. “They do. As such, mobile phones will undoubtedly play an increasingly important role in Business Aviation and I expect to see a growing number of bookings being made through smartphone apps.” MI www.avinodegroup.com continued on page 30

AMSTAT: Used Market Shows Continued Improvement A review of the business jet and turboprop markets shows that aircraft resale transactions for the first eight months of 2018 are mostly above levels seen in the first eight months of 2017. Among the Heavy Jets, 6.4% of the fleet turned over compared to 5.5% in 2017 and 5.0% in 2016. This increase is reflected across all Heavy Jet age segments, with the biggest YoY improvement coming in the mid-age segment, which increased from 6.3% to 7.6% of the fleet transacted (January through August). In the Medium Jet group, 7.0% of the fleet turned over, compared to 6.7% in the first eight months of 2017 and 5.7% for the same period in 2016. The YoY growth was closer in the various age segments, except the older Medium Jets where the percentage of active fleet sold in the first eight months increased from 6.0% in 2017 to 7.0% in 2018. The Light Jet group showed smaller changes in transaction activity with 6.6% of the fleet turning over so far this year, the same percentage as for the same period in 2017. This flattening was mirrored by the respective Light Jet age segments. In the Turboprops, 5.4% of the fleet turned over, which was a modest increase from 5.1% in the first eight months of 2017. The various Turboprop age segments also showed modest increases YoY.

Contracting Inventory

Today, 6.8% of the Heavy Jet fleet is for sale, the lowest percentage since 1998. All Heavy Jet segments show lower percentages for sale compared to a year ago. Similarly, the percentage of Medium Jets for sale has fallen from 8.8% in September 2017 to 8.5% today. Within this group, the newer Medium Jet segment has 4.6% for sale, the lowest percentage in this segment since 2008. In the Light Jets group, 10.8% of the fleet is for sale, down from 11.5% a year ago. All Light Jet age segments saw YoY inventory contraction except the older Light Jets which remained largely unchanged. The percentage of Turboprops for sale has also contracted YoY from 8.0% to 7.5%. However, it is worth noting that the inventory of Turboprops for sale in all age segments has increased modestly over the past few months.

Upbeat Seller Sentiment

In the Heavy Jet category the average asking price for newer models has increased 17% YoY due (in part) to some recent high-priced additions to the market. Within the Medium Jet group, the newer segment is the only Medium Jet age segment that has seen increases YoY (13.5%) and YTD (4.6%). The Light Jet segment has seen noticeable increases in the newer age segment (up 5.2% YTD) and mid-age segment (up 6.9% YTD). The newer Turboprops segment has also seen an increase of 6.8% YTD, whereas the mid-age and older segments have shown little change. MI www.amstatcorp.com 30

Is Financing Driving the Shift to Larger Aircraft?

Analysis from Global Jet Capital reveals the important role financing is playing in driving the growth of Business Aviation. Since the beginning of 2016, Global Jet Capital estimates that there have been more than 8,600 new and used business aircraft transacted around the globe, with the value of financing used to support those purchases totaling almost $23bn. Notably, over 60% of that financing has been directed towards acquisitions of new and used large/heavy aircraft. This financing has helped increase the proportion of larger aircraft within the global fleet, the company suggests. Since 2016, the total number of midsized aircraft around the world has fallen by 8% (415 airplanes). This number corresponds almost exactly with the increase in the number of larger models, the heavy/large jet segment having grown by 419 aircraft (a 6% increase). As the average purchase value of new aircraft in this larger segment exceeded $48.2m between 2016-2018, compared to an average of $12.5m for the balance of the market, this focus on larger aircraft provides a significant boost to the overall industry. The overall value of deliveries of new large or heavy jets since 2016 totals $26.4bn, compared to a total figure of $14.3bn for the balance of the market. Dave Labrozzi, chief operating officer at Global Jet Capital, explained: “The figures provide a clear focus of where we are seeing expansion in the sector, and the importance of financing in supporting industry growth. The flexibility afforded by operating leases is especially beneficial in helping clients move on to higher-value, new model aircraft without having to remarket their existing aircraft.” The company says it has seen a significant increase in enquiries for operating leases, with clients attracted by advantages including flexibility and reduction in residual risk. Global Jet Capital expects to see growth in operating leases over the coming five years, helping drive further aircraft acquisition. MI www.globaljetcapital.com continued on page 32

October flight activity in North America reversed the negative trend of September, due mainly to an increase in Part 91 and fractional flying. TRAQPak’s review of Year-over-Year (YoY) flight activity indicates that October 2018 saw an increase of 0.9% over October 2017. Fractional activity posted the largest increase while Part 91 flying was also up. In terms of aircraft categories, Midsize Jets posted the largest increase from 2017.

Month-over-Month

Month-over-month activity increased 8.9% from September 2018. Results by operational category were all positive for the month, with the Part 91 segment posting the largest monthly increase. Aircraft categories were all positive as well, with Mid-size jets posting the largest increase.

Flight Activity – Europe

There were 77,197 Business Aviation departures in Europe during October, up 5% YoY, according to WingX Advance. Business Jet activity accounted for a 60% share of the flights for October and is up 4% YoY versus October 2017. Overall, European activity is up by 3.2% YTD 2018. Most of the top six markets had some growth this month, with Germany adding the most (flights up by 8%) taking the YTD trend to +6%. Italy was flat, while UK departures were up 3%, and France and Switzerland gained 5%. Flights from Spain were up by 11% YoY. Additionally, there was 7% growth in Czech Republic, 9% in Greece, 12% from Netherlands and 24% growth in Finland. Among the declines in October were Turkey (4% YoY, -5% YTD) and Poland, down 10%. Of note, there was robust growth in Business Aviation flights within Europe which were up by 4.9% YoY during October. The transatlantic market is coming back, up 10% against a negative YTD trend of -1%. Arrivals from Middle East were down 2%, but from Africa they were up 15% YoY. Richard Koe, managing director of WingX Advance, comments: “[Growth for October] would be much higher but for the collapse in VLJ activity since the demise of Blink. Super Mid-size activity was up 12%, and Ultra-Long-Range flights were up 9%, with close to 20% growth in AOC flights on these aircraft. “Despite this, most of the market growth came on short trips, and Small Cabin jets had the most overall demand, with Light Jet Charters up almost 10% in the last 12 months,” reported Koe.

JSSI Flight Index Points to Sustained Growth The JSSI Business Aviation Index for Q3 2018 has been released and shows that, for the second consecutive quarter, average flight hours exceeded 30-hours and reached levels not seen since 2008… “This positive trend in aircraft utilization demonstrates a high level of confidence in current economic conditions,” notes Neil Book, president and CEO of JSSI. “The continued growth this year, with back-to-back quarters of flight-hour averages not seen since 2008, and a YoY increase of 5.7%, is a testament to today’s demand for private travel.” The JSSI Business Aviation Index tracks and reports on the global flight activity and utilization of business aircraft, including jets, turboprops and helicopters. Key findings in the Q3 2018 data include: •

Average aircraft utilization of 30.34 hours for Q3 2018, the first time in more than a decade that flight activity has averaged over 30 hours in back-to-back quarters. The helicopter industry continues to rebound in 2018, with a 21.9%

• • •

increase in average flight hours in Q3. Of the nine industries analyzed, six reported an increase and three reported a decrease in Quarter-overQuarter (QoQ) flight activity. The largest growth was in the Healthcare sector, which reported a 7.9% increase in flight activity compared to Q2 2018. The largest YoY decreases in flight activity were seen in the Manufacturing sector, with an 11.8% reduction. Seven key regions are sampled in the index. Significant QoQ increases were reported in the Middle East (+39.4% in average flight hours) and Africa (+37.6%). South America also experienced an 11.4% increase. Decreases were seen in Central America (-15.7%), Asia-Pacific (-8.7%), and Europe (-1.4%). North America flight hours increased 1.6% QoQ and 6.8% YoY. Average flight hours increased 5.7% YoY.

JETNET: Marked Drop in YTD 2018 Transactions JETNET’s latest Market Summary has reported that between JanuarySeptember, 2018 there were 6,781 pre-owned jets and helicopters sold, a decrease of 681 (or 9.1%) in the number of transactions compared to JanuarySeptember, 2017. The noted downturn occurred across all market sectors. Commercial airliners and commercial turboprops showed the largest declines at 16.1% and 13.1%, respectively. Meanwhile, fleet for sale percentages for all market sectors (except Piston Helicopters) were down when comparing September 2018 with September 2017, with a drop of 7.5% (nearly 500 aircraft) overall. Business Jets showed the largest decline in the percentages of aircraft for sale, standing at 8.9% compared to 10.4% last year at this same time – a drop of 1.5 percentage points. The decline in Business Jets for sale is “very good news,” according to JETNET, “and clearly shows we are below the 10% mark and firmly in a seller’s market.” Inventories of pre-owned Business Jets for sale have decreased and are now below the 2,000 mark, at 1,934. Business Jets saw a decrease of 1.6% in preowned sale transactions (including leases) in the first nine months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. Also, Business Jets are taking 27 fewer days to sell, 285 days on average, compared to 312 days last year. Business Turboprops average days on the market, meanwhile, dropped by 27 days compared to last year, while sale transactions declined by 0.9%. Pre-owned Business Jet, Pre-owned Commercial Jet, and Turbine Helicopter market sectors have surpassed the 1,000 mark for YTD sales. These aggregate to 65% of the total compared to the other market segments. MI www.jetnet.com continued on page 40

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition

Table A

Fleet Maintenance Condition

Asset Insight’s market analysis covering 93 fixed-wing models and 1,589 aircraft listed for sale on October 31, 2018, revealed a 2.3% decrease in the tracked inventory fleet (36 units). So how did the fleet fare, specifically…? Medium and Small Jet inventories increased 3.7% and 5.5%, respectively; Large Jet inventory remained unchanged; and Turboprop inventory decreased 2.4%. With inventory scarce for younger, low-time Large Jets, and Asset Quality at a 12-month peak for Small Jets, the two groups pushed the Asset Insight (AI) tracked fleet’s average Ask Price higher during October.

5.344

Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

The ETP Ratio (Table B) is a useful indicator of an aircraft’s marketability. It is computed by dividing the asset's Maintenance Exposure (the financial liability accrued with respect to future scheduled maintenance events) by its Ask Price. ‘Days on Market’ analysis has shown that when the ETP Ratio is greater than 40%, a listed aircraft’s time on the market increases, usually by more than 30% and, during Q3 2018, assets whose ETP Ratio was 40% or more were listed for sale nearly 34% longer (on average) than aircraft whose Ratio was below 40% (280 versus 374 Days on Market). Asset Insight’s October analysis revealed that 50.6% of all tracked models and 60.0% of the tracked fleet posted an ETP Ratio above 40%. The tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio decreased (improved) in October, for the second consecutive month, registering 65.1% versus September’s 67.1%. Turboprops again accounted for the lowest (best) ETP Ratio, at 49.1%. Large Jets followed at 62.7%; Small Jets posted a 12-month best (lowest) figure at 63.4%; and Medium Jets improved marginally to 77.5%.

Market Summary

With inventory asset quality at a 12-month high and Maintenance Exposure at a near 12-month low (best), it would be difficult to conceive a better environment for aircraft trades, especially during continued on page 44

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

Large Jet transactions of mostly younger airframes increased Maintenance Exposure for the remaining inventory, while Medium Jet transactions were of mixed asset quality. Small Jet trades and fleet additions helped improve their inventory figures, while buyer focus on lower quality Turboprops – presumably due to seller pricing concessions – helped improve that fleet’s available inventory statistics. Overall, the AI tracked inventory posted the following figures: The Quality Rating remained within the ‘Excellent’ range, improving to 5.344 (another 12-month best), on a scale of –2.5 to 10. This change was due to a reduction in both the number of upcoming scheduled maintenance events and their average cost, according to Asset Insight. Not surprisingly, Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) improved, albeit by a nominal amount, with the figure coming in at just above the 12-month lowest (best) Exposure of $1.379m, a clear signal that upcoming maintenance events are expected to be less expensive.

Q4 2018, traditionally the peak transaction period. Higher asset quality potentially offers sellers the opportunity to optimize their investment’s value. With some buyers demonstrating a willingness to pay more for higher quality aircraft, the next two months should be interesting. The challenge for buyers, as always, is to distinguish between ‘low price’ and ‘good value’. Large Jets: Inventory figures remained unchanged for this group, as did asset quality. However, Maintenance Exposure increased (worsened) to a 12-month high, while Ask Price increased 5.3%. This apparent conundrum can be explained through the ongoing pricing dichotomy whereby young, low-time models are able to command a premium, while older aircraft are unable to transact

at anywhere near what most sellers are willing to accept for their asset. Medium Jets: The tracked fleet’s inventory increased by 18 units in October. Transactions were of mixed asset quality, and the available fleet is now offering aircraft that have fewer maintenance events upcoming, while the average cost to complete those events increased by 1.3%. Ask price decreased 1.5%, and the group’s values are down 16.4% this year. Considering the number of sellers competing for buyer interest, Asset Insight says it does not anticipate that prices will dramatically recover in the near future.

this group is poised to experience a very strong Q4.

Where is the Business Aviation Market Heading? What are the indicators for where the used business jet sales market is heading in the near- and mid-term future? Dave Higdon reflects on what the leading forecasters are saying as 2018 draws to a close… or 2019 and beyond, familiar predictions run toward an ongoing recovery that is expected to continue through 2028. There is a slight dip expected mid-way through a ten-year cycle that calls for sales of between 7,700 and 7,900 new business jets. It’s expected that the total fleet will continue to grow along with the population of Business Aviation users, while average utilization will continue to decline in the first half of the ten-year period, before returning to slow utilization growth

F

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

in the latter half. Looking back over recent years, Brian Foley of Brian Foley Associates succinctly notes: “Business jet utilization (takeoffs and landings) in the US has increased each year since 2009, but so has the fleet size. Thus, average utilization per jet has actually remained flat.”

Used Jet Market Replenishment

As for the used aircraft market, the current shift towards a seller’s market should continue as those

expected new jet shipments help replenish the dwindling pool of used jets for sale. The arrival in the next two years of seven new business jet designs sets the stage for deliveries of these new jets adding to the available pool of used business jets as favorable tax treatments and accelerated depreciation combine to encourage moving up by trading in. “Without them, the rout in worldwide business jet unit deliveries, which roughly halved between 2008 and 2012, would have been far worse, if that’s even imaginable,” notes Foley. While initially off to a good start in 2018, stock market indices in the emerging markets around the world have taken a turn for the worse. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index, designed to measure the combined stock performance of 24 emergingmarket nations, was recently hovering around a 20% loss since peaking in January, a correction defined as a bear market. Within this MSCI Index, key business jet markets such as China (-21%), Brazil (-25%) and Argentina (48%) were already in bear-market territory by mid-August. Others like Russia (-15%) and Mexico (-6%) had not yet fallen as far. “When local stock markets decline, it’s typically accompanied by less buyer willingness to spend on Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

a multi-million-dollar aircraft asset,” Foley adds. Local currency devaluation brought another headwind for aircraft sales in the emerging markets. The perceived safe-haven of the US dollar has caused it to rise against most emerging market currencies. “Since business jets are priced in dollars, it now takes a lot more local currency to buy one,” Foley explained, “which has a negative impact on sales. However, Foley remains optimistic. “It’s just a matter of time before emerging markets will again be a major contributor to private aircraft sales. With developed economies in an upswing, the industry has the luxury of waiting for at least a while.”

A Future Comeback Star?

JETNET vice president of sales, Paul Cardarelli, said at the recent NBAA-BACE that the industry is on pace for approximately 4.5m flight cycles this year on a fleet of more than 14,000 aircraft. “We were doing the same thing in 2004, with a little bit north of 9,000 aircraft, so we’re flying the airplanes roughly about a third less than we did back then, and that’s a concern. We think that Business Aviation is going to flourish when we’re really using those assets as much as we can and

certainly as much as we did in the past.” JETNET tracked the declining used jet inventory noting that prices have started to stabilize. “That’s really where we see the recovery today,” Cardarelli says, adding that JETNET currently sees the greatest disparity between inventory and the number of aircraft for sale, “…it’s trending to be an increasingly strengthening seller's market.” And according to JETNET iQ’s Rollie Vincent, the company sees signs that the next decade should bring slight sales growth compared to the prior ten years. Vincent released the company’s updated forecast for deliveries of 7,807 new business jet deliveries worth about $240bn through 2027. “If you go back, that 7,800 number looks very similar to the last few years, so we’re not talking about unit growth here, but we’re talking about significant value growth,” Vincent clarifies. With today's average new jet price of about $30m, that’s more than double the average of 12 years ago. JETNET’s forecast (and similar ones from Honeywell and others) should point toward continued fleet growth. According to Asset Insight’s quarterly Market Report, Q3 2018 brought strong demand for younger models of for-sale aircraft and contributed to the increased value for that group of inventory. Conversely, older models spend considerably more time on the market and that is impacting the average pricing data. Tony Kioussis, president of Asset Insight explained, “The seller's market in the recent model aircraft category does not translate to older inventory for sale. “We saw older aircraft with higher Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price ratios spend 58% longer on the market than their younger counterparts. We forecast that average prices for lower-time aircraft will continue to increase over the next 90 days, 50

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

and the price of higher-time units will continue to decline through the end of 2018.”

Retirement Incentives

Gaetan Handfield, Honeywell’s senior manager of marketing analysis, states that the total number of late-model jets (those under ten years of age) listed for resale dropped 30% Year-over-Year (YoY), standing now at barely more than 5% of the installed base. That's well below historical averages of around 8% – a good indicator for future sales. As for the older jets in the fleet (those age 20 and over), equipment issues may prompt an increase in retirements. Specifically, the concerns focus on the near-global mandate to equip with ADS-B. The saving grace for some of these retirement candidates may be the eligibility of some for powerplant upgrades that cost less than overhauling the existing engines while delivering lower fuel consumption, increased useful loads and reduced maintenance costs. It will be a fine line many operators have to walk.

What’s the Bottom Line?

The future won't bring a steady upward curve. We will see brief periods of decline. But the ten-year outlook for new aircraft sales looks solid overall. Meanwhile, used aircraft sales will remain solid, though unspectacular, simply due to tight inventories and pricing. And expect to see a continued expansion of operators wise enough to select Business Aviation for their primary transportation tool – even if they don't fly as many hours as today’s operators. T

New Airplane Shipment Analysis – Q3 2018 The General Aviation Manufacturer’s Association (GAMA) issued its most upbeat shipments report in quite a while on November 14, noting that all three categories – pistons, turboprops and jets – were ahead of the year before. Mike Potts analyses… AMA president and CEO Pete Bunce observed it was “One of the few times since the great recession that we have seen all segments up.” Turboprops were up 5.6% and business jets ahead by 3.0%. Total shipments (including piston aircraft) were up 6.1% at 1,625 units, an increase of 94 aircraft over the 1,531 delivered in the same nine-month period a year ago.

Billings continued to lag, down 3.1% from last year’s $13.1bn total, coming in at $12.7bn. This reflects continuing softness in the upper-end of the jet market.

The Business Jet Market

The pick-up in the jet market was somewhat in defiance of Honeywell’s forecast, which recently predicted 2018 would be the worst year for jet deliveries since 2004, when the total was only 592.

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 145


GAMA.qxp_Layout 1 20/11/2018 10:45 Page 2

Honeywell expects jet deliveries to finish between 630 and 640 this year. If current trends continue, though, we’ll see the business jet total in the 690 to 710 range, a little ahead of last year’s 677-unit finish. Honeywell, however, doesn’t count very light jets which, after years of being a nonfactor in the market, are now seeing deliveries rise, particularly of the Cirrus single-engine jet. The jet market is still wavering between recovery and continued recession. Of 11 jet makers now reporting to GAMA, four are up from a year ago, six are down and one is even. Jet deliveries at the three-quarter mark this year totaled 446 units, up from 433 in the same period last year. Leading the jet market delivery race was Cessna, with 125 units, up from 122 last year. In Q3 2018 Cessna reported 41 deliveries, matching its 2017 performance. Bombardier, meanwhile, captured second place with 96 shipments, ahead of its prior Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

total by a single unit both for the year and for the quarter (31 units). Gulfstream is in third place with 79, including 27 in Q3 2018. Both lag Gulfstream’s performance last year when the company had 90 for the Year-to-Date (YTD) and 30 for the three-month period. Gulfstream’s deliveries are off 12.2% from a year ago, single-handedly accounting for the $400m shortfall in overall billings. Fourth position in jet deliveries this year is occupied by Embraer, which reported 55 units, down from 59 a year ago. For Q3 Embraer had 24 (up four from the 20 delivered in Q3 2017. Cirrus was fifth with 41 units delivered so far this year, compared to nine a year ago following certification. Cirrus had 16 deliveries in Q3 compared to seven in Q3 2017. Cirrus could overtake Embraer to take fourth place in jet deliveries by the end of this year. Historically, though, Embraer tends to have strong Q4 surges. Last year the Brazilian OEM delivered 50 units in Q4 to finish the year with 109. In sixth place in jet deliveries so far this year is Honda, with 21 units in the first nine months, down from 30 last year. Honda reported four deliveries in Q3 alone, compared with six a year ago. Dassault, which only reports results every half year, is currently in seventh place with 15 units, down slightly from 17 last year. Based on prior-year performances it is probable that Dassault’s deliveries to date total in the mid-twenties, which would put it in sixth place. And Pilatus is in eighth place with nine deliveries, up from this time a year ago when the Swiss OEM had yet to deliver a jet. With five deliveries so far this year, Boeing is in ninth position. Its total includes one in this quarter, and both totals are down one from a year ago when it had six YTD and two for the quarter. Neither Airbus nor ONE reported any deliveries this year, although Airbus may have made deliveries to clients seeking anonymity that it doesn’t report to GAMA. With three new companies entering the market in the past three years and new products from at least five of the market participants in the same period the jet market is evolving more significantly than any other segment in Business Aviation. The fact that market leaders Cessna and

Bombardier are among the companies with gains over last year is significant in suggesting the market is leaning toward an upturn, but with fewer than half the companies reporting showing gains, recovery in the business jet market is clearly still some distance away.

The Turboprop Market

With deliveries showing a 5.6% upturn based on GAMA’s reporting, the Turboprop market is somewhat better shape than Business Jets. Business Turboprop deliveries totaled 274 units this year, up from 263 in 2017. On a quarter-to-quarter comparison things weren’t quite as good. This year saw 99 Business Turboprops delivered in Q3 compared with 112 last year. Like the jet market, the turboprop sector’s results were mixed. With nine traditional OEMs reporting to GAMA for the nine-month period, five were up and four were down. For just Q3, two were up, three were even with last year’s results and four were down. The leader in Business Turboprops this year is Textron’s Cessna, with 60 deliveries, narrowly edging out the perennial market leader which is Textron’s Beechcraft segment (59 units). Both companies had better YTD numbers than last year, with each up from 55 the year before. On a quarter-to-quarter comparison, both Cessna and Beechcraft lagged their 2017 totals, with Cessna having 24 this year compared with 33 last and Beechcraft having 19 compared to 24 last year. Third place in turboprop deliveries went to Pilatus with 53 shipments, down slightly from the 54 reported in 2017. Pilatus’ quarterly figures were also down, from 23 a year ago to 21 this year. Piper captured fourth place in Business Turboprop shipments with 38, up from 31 a year ago. For the quarter Piper was also up at 15 from

58

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

12 last year. Not far behind was Daher, in fifth place with 33, down from 36 the year before. For the quarter Daher was also down at 11 units compared to 13. In sixth place was Quest, with 20 deliveries for the year so far, down from 23. For the quarter Quest was even with six deliveries. New Zealand’s Pacific Aerospace finished in seventh place with eight deliveries, up one from seven for the first nine months last year. For just the third quarter Pacific Aerospace was ahead with three units, up from one a year ago. Piaggio, with three deliveries this year, was in eighth place, although the company had none in Q3 2018 or Q3 2017. China’s AVIC has reported no turboprop deliveries this year having made two in 2017. Based on how the market seems to be playing out this year, Business Turboprops could finish in the 335-340-unit range.

Final Thought…

It is worth noting that the Piston Twin segment is growing faster than any other segment in Business Aviation. So far in 2018, piston twins are up 22.4%, with 131 units delivered to date compared with 107 last year. For Q3 Piston Twins totaled 50 units, up from 39 last year – a gain of 28.2%. Diamond, Tecnam, Piper and Beechcraft led the way. T

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T FLEET REVIEW

How many BizJets are in Operation in the Middle East? With the Middle East Business Aviation Conference (MEBAA) taking place in Dubai during December, Mike Chase reviews the current business aircraft fleet based in the region. TABLE A - FLEET BY COUNTRY (BASED IN) here are currently 534 business jets in operation in Middle Eastern countries, according to JETNET. As shown in Table A, Saudi Arabia has the largest number of business jets within the region (123), closely followed by Turkey (122). United Arab Emirates is third with 102. Combined, these three countries account for 65% of all the business jets based in the Middle East.

Middle East Fleet, By Manufacturer

Looking at the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of the business jets currently operating in the Middle East, Textron, Bombardier and Gulfstream have a 65% combined share (i.e. 345) of the 534 Middle East-based aircraft fleet, see Table B (opposite). Bombardier currently has the largest fleet (121 jets).

Middle East BizJet Deliveries

During the 20-year period since 1999, 451 (or 84%) of the 534 units that comprise the Middle East business jet fleet in operation have been delivered (see Chart A, opposite). That represents an average of 23 business jet delivered annually into the region over the last two decades. 60

Looking at the specific data for each year, however, 2009 represented a peak delivery year at 41 units being delivered into the region. The low-point came in 2003 when just ten units were delivered to the region. So far in 2018, eight units have been delivered (January-October). The single largest number of business jets (by model) based in the Middle East today are Gulfstream G450s (30 units). Table C (above) shows the ‘Top Ten’ business jet models in the region. All of the Top Ten aircraft represented are from the LargeCabin/Long Range jet category.

Middle East Used Aircraft Market

During October’s NBAA-BACE in Orlando, it was reported that several new business jet programs are being planned for the future. We expect these announcements will result in new orders being placed during December’s MEBAA. New aircraft orders, however, are linked with the health of the used aircraft market. Questions about the used aircraft market recovery still linger. In the Middle East region, air transport supports 3.3% of all employment and 4.4% of GDP (as recently noted in a report by IATA). Fleet for sale percentages worldwide for business jets were down in September compared to the same period in 2017, and Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

represented the lowest percentage (8.9%) seen since the Great Recession began. The used jet marketplace has transitioned into a seller’s market. Among the countries comprising the Middle East, there are currently 67 aircraft (12.5%) of the Middle Eastern business jet fleet for sale. Hawker and Citation models account for 37% of the used business jets currently for sale in the region, as represented in Table D (above).

Middle East Business Jet Fleet Summary

The Middle East region has proven highly resilient through the recent global downturn. This is a good sign for Business Aviation. We expect to see further growth coinciding with the region’s economic expansion and will continue to monitor the Middle East countries’ business aircraft activity through future articles.

How is the Used Jet Market in the Middle East? Is the Middle East an attractive market for aircraft buyers to consider? How is the used market evolving there, and how should buyers and sellers approach it? Empire Aviation Group’s Scott Glenn discusses these questions and more with AvBuyer… ne of the great attractions for professionals in Business Aviation is the global nature of the industry. That’s no less the case for Scott Glenn, director of sales, Empire Aviation Group. Empire offers aircraft sales, management, charter and CAMO services worldwide. Launched in 2007 in Dubai, the company operates an extensive fleet of business jets, with more than 20 aircraft based around the world. Having joined the Empire team in the US initially, Glenn accepted the opportunity to relocate to the Middle East, positioning him well to offer insights on business aircraft sales trends within that region…

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

AvBuyer: Honeywell’s latest business jet forecast was released in October and anticipates global demand for 7,700 new jets between 2019 and 2029. Four percent of those are expected to be shipped to the Middle East/Africa. Meanwhile, just 14% of Middle Eastern/African respondents to Honeywell’s survey said they planned to replace or add to their fleet with a new jet purchase. That’s down from 18% last year. Is this in line with what you are seeing in the Middle Eastern Business Aviation market? Glenn: From Empire Aviation’s perspective - and speaking as an aircraft asset manager and fleet

“As inventory has dried up, buyers are having to look beyond their own back yards for good quality aircraft.”

operator - this forecast seems low. Within our current base of customers, about 40% plan to buy new and the other 60% will purchase used aircraft when the time comes to replace or add to their fleets. On average, these customers replace their aircraft every four to five years. The true picture is likely to be somewhere in between our fleet statistics and Honeywell’s forecast. There are several factors that could explain the dip in Honeywell’s numbers though. Firstly, as the Middle Eastern market continues to mature, the perception of only purchasing new jets has shifted and buyers are realizing that there are good used aircraft purchase opportunities. Additionally, we have only recently climbed out of a global recession. We see companies in the Middle East and around the globe really looking at their expenses and trying to manage their cash as effectively as possible – and again, this may result in organizations that would normally have only considered purchasing new jets being more willing to consider the used jet marketplace. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

AvBuyer: Though Honeywell’s forecast only accounts for new jet shipments, can you summarize the used aircraft market in the Middle East at present? Glenn: Over the past decade, there hasn’t been a better time than now to sell a used jet in the Middle East. The dollar is strong and the global jet marketplace has seen a significant shift over the past year. As inventory has dried up, buyers are having to look beyond their own back yards for good quality aircraft. A few years ago, a North American buyer may only have come to Dubai to purchase an aircraft if there was a strong price motivation. Now, that same buyer may need to come to Dubai to purchase the best aircraft available - and pay a premium to do so. Globally we’re positioned well because as sellers we’re seeing our aircraft move into the West, and as buyers we’re closer to the action for those aircraft based in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

AvBuyer: What (if anything) has changed in the Middle East used jet market in the past year or two? Glenn: The biggest change has been the global perception of the quality of the aircraft fleet that is based within the Middle East. As an example, every customer we host from Europe or America tends to be amazed at how well we run our operation and take care of our aircraft. Enough aircraft have been sold from this part of the world into the Americas that buyers are starting to shed their preconceptions of aircraft previously operated in this region. They can see aircraft based in the Middle East are well maintained and operated. As we continue to sell aircraft from the region into the West, the perception will only improve, and the result will be a stabilization in aircraft values here. AvBuyer: We’ve heard plenty recently about the best used jets drying up in the North American marketplace. As you’ve highlighted, some are tempted to look overseas for quality jets for sale. What are their prospects in the Middle East marketplace? Glenn: Based on our perception of the market this is correct, and it’s a great opportunity for the Middle East to showcase its aircraft, operations and acumen. Buyers are indeed having to look beyond their home country for good quality aircraft, and, as I’ve mentioned, when they come to our part of the world they begin to realize that we have high-quality maintenance and operations. For the better part of the past year we have routinely seen aircraft being sold from the Middle

East and heading into North America. Savvy buyers in North America have taken advantage of some great opportunities to acquire high-quality aircraft here. We’re now seeing those who are slightly behind the curve beginning to shop in the region, and this second wave of buyers has shifted the Middle East market to align better with that in North America. Consequently, the Middle East is heading towards becoming a sellers’ market. AvBuyer: How would you advise an international buyer or seller to proceed to get the best from the Middle East aircraft sales market today? What are your top three tips to ensure they get good value from any sale or acquisition with a Middle East buyer or seller? Glenn: First, hire an aviation professional with international experience to represent your interests. Knowing how to navigate the various aviation authorities; how to manage people from various cultures and time zones; and having established relationships across the globe in various segments will be paramount to a successful selling or buying experience. Second, trust and listen to the person you have hired. They know and understand the markets, values and nuances of a deal within the region. And finally, be decisive. Remember that time kills deals in today’s market environment. When an opportunity to buy or sell presents itself and you’re in the market, go for the opportunity. Don’t let it pass.

How to Own and Operate a Disposable Jet

While it’s not an option for every operator, for those considering owning and operating a much older, ‘disposable’ business jet, David Wyndham and Jim Sellers offer tips on how to manage the process… ast month we considered why anyone would want to buy and operate a very old business jet. The maintenance costs are high, spare parts can be difficult to find, and total time spent in the shop will impact the aircraft’s availability. So why would you want to go down this route? The answer is simple: value. You can buy a very old business jet for relatively little money, operate it for a few years until you face a major maintenance bill (i.e. an engine overhaul), then sell it for parts to one of several salvage companies (including JSSI Parts). The net cost is less than the market depreciation of a new jet. Following is an example featuring a client who

purchased with more hours left on its engines for the same $600k that the current jet is worth. It might require $50k–$100k of interior or paint work to suit your tastes/needs, but the total cost would still be significantly less than the maintenance bill to keep the current jet flying.

Buying & Operating Disposable Aircraft

Option 2: Sell the aircraft for salvage. This specific jet could be worth $300k for its parts if the airframe is in good condition.

Though buying and operating a disposable aircraft is certainly not the right option for everybody, following are some tips for general guidance if it is a viable option for your operation.

Option 3: If you love this particular model and it suits your needs, scrap the current jet and buy a younger one. Looking at other models currently offered for sale on the used market our owner could spend $1.7m for a newer model that was upgraded with brand new engines a few years ago, including them being on a guaranteed hourly maintenance program. Alternatively, a similar model could be

Tip 1: These older aircraft will require a lot more maintenance and TLC than their newer counterparts. If this is a viable option for you, you’ll need a maintenance director that not only knows the aircraft extremely well, but also knows where to find spare parts. Without the right maintenance director to care for your disposable aircraft, including sourcing what it needs to maintain airworthiness, you shouldn’t consider acquiring one.

“Look for an aircraft with no major maintenance due in the next three-to-five years.” Tip 2: Plan-ahead and be prepared for the downtime. Your aircraft is likely to spend half its remaining life in the shop awaiting parts or undergoing maintenance. Subsequently, your annual maintenance budget will be the most significant part of your hourly costs (expect it to exceed 50% of the variable cost). That estimate excludes the major maintenance items like engine overhauls. The larger portion of time the aircraft spends in the maintenance shop can still work if your travel needs are booked well in advance and if your total usage is relatively low. Nevertheless, you will need to have patience and be prepared to change your travel plans or arrange alternative lift when your aircraft is unexpectedly grounded when you need it. Tip 3: Use an aftermarket resource to evaluate exchange options. The salvage value of an aircraft is not always a simple equation. You will need to work with experts (such as JSSI Parts) who know the market, and your model of aircraft. Tip 4: Look for an aircraft with no major maintenance due in the next three-to-five years. Engines are a big part of the planning in this regard. If you anticipate flying 150 hours annually, look for an aircraft with 450+ hours remaining before the scheduled overhaul is due. Bonus Tip: In 2020, the FAA will require all aircraft to be ADS-B Out equipped. ADS-B Out is mandatory for position reporting in most of the US airspace, and swathes of the rest of the world. The cost of this upgrade varies depending on the make and model of aircraft and what avionics system updates are installed. 72

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

If you are looking at any used aircraft for purchase in the next two years, make sure it is either already ADS-B Out equipped, or at the least has a date set for the installation. If it doesn’t you may not be flying in US airspace at all come January 1, 2020.

Disposable Aircraft Shopping Tips

In terms of specific models to consider, ensure that they were built in significant numbers over a long period. For example, more than 1,200 Citation IIs were produced between 1978 and 1994. Similarly, hundreds of Learjet 35s were built between 1974 and 1992. More than 50% of both fleets remain active, and while maintenance costs are quite high, there are several third-party maintenance shops working to support them. There are specific areas of concern for both jets in terms of spares, however, and that (as mentioned previously) will require knowledgeable maintenance personnel to manage.

In Summary…

As a rule, these very old aircraft are not recommended unless you have a plan and the right partners for spares support who can help keep operational costs down. In addition to JSSI Parts, there are various smaller firms that specialize in specific makes and models. Should you proceed, you should be in no doubt what you are in for and be prepared to spend some time and, relative to the acquisition price, substantial cost to keep your aircraft flying. Inevitably, you must also be prepared to say goodbye when the time comes sooner rather than later… T

How to Understand the Scrap Value of a Jet Aircraft appraisal expert Jeremy Cox offers a guide on how to

understand the value of an end-of-life business aircraft. If ‘de-manufacture’ is an option you’re considering, what will your jet fetch in scrap?

here is a new term emerging in Business Aviation. Aircraft ‘de-manufacture’ sounds better than ‘salvage’ or ‘partingout’ even though it is essentially the same thing. So, what is the process of the demanufacture of an end-of-life aircraft (EOLA)? The following list should help clarify:

T

• • • • • • • • 74

Position aircraft in the disassembly/destruction area Drain all fluids and gases from aircraft Removal of components Cut-up and shred airframe Prepare inventory of removed items Segregate the scrap materials Recycle the scrap materials Protect, recertify, store and sell components.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

Where’s the Value in an EOLA?

The engines have the highest value in an end-of-life aircraft (see Table A), assuming the aircraft flew-in and/or the engines have been run every 30-45 days, per the engine manufacturers’ maintenance manual. If they have neither been run per the specifications, nor been placed into a long-term storage program, the likelihood is they will only return a core value (at worst), or the sum of all the life-limited parts (at best) once the engines have been dismantled. If the engines are junk and there is no resale market, they will return only scrap value.

Hypothetical Example

Let’s consider the hypothetical example of an early model Gulfstream GV (circa 1995). To my knowledge only two GVs have been written-off and

parted out. These were s/n 508, which had a very hard landing causing structural damage to the aircraft, and s/n 647, which was run into by a catering truck. Using a fictional GV aircraft that has a value of $5m, Table A (above) provides a reasonable depiction of how that $5m value is ascertained from our GV part-out. When all of the ‘greater than scrap value’ components have been removed, a derelict airframe structure sitting either on the ground or on supports is all that remains. Sections can be dissected (i.e. the cockpit) and might be sold to a training company, a restaurant or an architectural company. Some home interior designers like to hang a polished section of fuselage with window-line remaining on a wall as decorative art. The possibilities are only limited by the designers’ mindset, and vision in how to repurpose a piece of EOLA structure. More ‘repurposes’ of an EOLA airframe include that of maritime reef creation for underwater wildlife, or sunken object d’art for scuba divers to explore, or fire-department training. If taking the time to explore these repurposing options for your EOLA is not on your schedule, then the next step will likely involve the cut and shred process.

sometimes an on-site metal shredding machine) is this: Sort, segregate, mutilate and then refine. Every item of scrap has a value and will result in varying amounts once the scrap from an EOLA is refined. For example, in the US, ‘dirty aluminum’ scrap (with steel, rubber, plastic, etc. attached) currently runs at about $0.07/lb. – the same as for steel and iron. Clean aluminum is more than four times that at $0.32/lb. Stainless steel is about the same at $0.30/lb., while copper is $1.95/lb., and insulated copper wire $0.85/lb. The final count-up for our fictional Gulfstream GV EOLA that is being readied for ‘demanufacture’ will come from the scrap value of the remaining derelict airframe structure. The weight is approximately 21,750lbs, and is accounted for within Table B (below). Assuming the empty weight is 21,750lbs, for which an average $0.195/lb. is obtained for a mixture of dirty and clean aluminum, an additional $4,241 in additional final scrap value can be gleaned. With upcoming mandates in the US and around the world likely to push a number of older jets to the brink of de-manufacture, it is hoped the above summary will be of use to those weighing up the value of their aircraft for eventual scrappage.

Turboprops Give More... Prop Advances keep these Workhorses Competitive The top-selling turboprops tend to be aircraft that are continually popular among owners needing fuel-efficient, multi-mission types, as AvBuyer explores below… hile exceptions exist, turboprop airplanes offer a common set of attributes that make them an attractive proposition. The powerplants are responsible for most of this – turboprop engines benefit today from propeller designs that are far more sophisticated than just a decade ago, resulting in lower maintenance costs; longer overhaul cycles; improved climb and cruise performance; and - in turn - reduced noise levels in the cabin. In addition, specific fuel consumption numbers continue to improve – an attractive attribute given today’s depressed oil prices, with the practical effect of allowing the use of higher power-levels without suffering a proportionate increase in fuel consumption/costs. That, in turn, contributes to improvements in take-off and climb performance and cruise speed. Another advantage offered by many turboprops is the single-pilot operational simplicity, engineered into even the multi-engine turboprops. The only exceptions to the sum total of these benefits exist among the unpressurized models that are available and form a small, important and dynamic segment of the turboprop market.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

Today’s turboprops offer a broad range of turbine performance, propeller cost-effectiveness (some with at - or near to - Light Jet cruise performance capabilities) with cabin and cockpit accoutrements that rival the best of the fanjet strata. And on trips of up to 300 nautical miles, the difference in travel time between a jet and a turboprop is negligible.

Turboprop Price Guide

The following Turboprop Retail Price Guide represents current average values published in The Aircraft Bluebook–Price Digest. The study spans model years from 1999 through Fall 2018 (20 year period). Values reported are in US$ millions, with each reporting point representing the current average retail value published in the Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Daher Socata TBM 850 reported in the Fall 2018 edition of the Bluebook shows US$2.3m for a 2012 model, US$2.2m for a 2011 model, and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. Note: For additional assistance and interest, Conklin & de Decker Performance and Specification data for these Turboprops can be referred to, beginning on  page 80 of this issue.

Aircraft Performance & Specifications Turboprops

T

he AvBuyer Magazine Guide to Aircraft Performance and Technical Specification Data is updated by Conklin & de Decker on a regular basis. The Guide is much more comprehensive and informative, providing more aircraft types and models and including variable cost numbers for all models. This month’s category of aircraft - Turboprops – appears opposite, to be followed by Large-Cabin jets next month. Please note that this data should be used as a guide only, and not as the basis on which buying decisions are taken. The data presents aircraft aged below 20 years of age only, but Conklin & de Decker provides details of older airplanes too. If there are any other ways in which we can improve the content or presentation of this information, please let us know.

Description of Cost Elements

The following describes the content of each cost element used in The Aircraft Cost Evaluator. There are no sales taxes included in these costs.

SPECIFICATIONS - GENERAL

Cabin Dimensions: Cabin Height, Width, and Length are based on a completed interior. On “cabin-class” aircraft, the length is measured from the cockpit divider to the aft pressure bulkhead (or aft cabin bulkhead if unpressurized). For small cabin aircraft, the distance is from the cockpit firewall to the aft bulkhead. Height and width are the maximum within that cabin space. Cabin Volume is the interior volume, with headliner in place, without chairs or other furnishings.

80

Maximum Payload is the maximum zero fuel weight minus the basic operating weight.

Performance Range: • Ferry Range - is the maximum IFR range of the aircraft with the maximum fuel on board and no passenger seats occupied. This uses the NBAA IFR alternate fuel reserve calculation for a 200 N.Mi. alternate. This is used for jet and turboprop aircraft.

Seats Executive: This is the typical crew and passenger seating commonly used on the aircraft. This is not the maximum certificated seats of the aircraft. These numbers may vary for different operations (Corporate, Commercial, EMS, etc.).

Cruise Speed: (Knots True Air Speed - KTAS) Max Cruise Speed - is the maximum cruise speed at maximum continuous power. This may also be commonly referred to as High Speed Cruise.

Weights: • Maximum Take-Off Weight is specified during aircraft certification.

Engines: The number of engines, manufacturer and model are shown.

Aircraft Comparative Analysis

Embraer Legacy 450 vs Embraer Legacy 500 In this month’s Jets Comparison, Mike Chase provides information on a pair of business jets, including the Embraer Legacy 450 and Legacy 500. Where is the

point at which an operator chooses an Embraer Legacy 500 over a Legacy 450? ver the following paragraphs we will consider the productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size) and cover current market values for the Embraer Legacy 450 and Legacy 500. The Legacy 500 was certified on August 12, 2014, becoming the first mid-size business jet with digital flight controls with full fly-by-wire. A year later, the Legacy 450 was certified, and is positioned as a ‘lightmedium jet’, filling the gap between Embraer’s smaller Phenom jets, and the larger Legacy 500 and 650 jets. Embraer increased the range of its Legacy 450 shortly after the first delivery, with a retrofit kit now available for the early build aircraft.

O

New Models Introduction

Embraer recently introduced improved variants of its Legacy 450 and 500 jets. Named the Praetor 500 and 600 and offering 3,250nm and 3,900nm range, respectively, the Praetor 600 should be certified in Q2 2019 and the 500 in Q3 2019. The $17m Praetor 500 boosts the fuel capacity of the Legacy 450 from 12,108lbs to 13,058lbs to match the Legacy 500. The $21m Praetor 600 is based on the Legacy 500 with two tanks on the fuselage belly for 2,928lbs more fuel (giving a 15,986lb) capacity, and more powerful 7,528lbst Honeywell HTF7500E engines. As a result of the new model introduction,

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

Embraer has presented an opportunity to current Legacy 450s owners to upgrade to the Praetor 500 configuration for $500k.

Worldwide Appeal

The total number of Legacy 450 aircraft built as of this writing was 50. Forty-one are in operation globally, 24 are wholly-owned, one is in shared ownership and 16 are in fractional ownership. Nine are at the factory awaiting delivery. Of the Legacy 450 aircraft in operation by continent, North America has the largest percentage (79%), followed by Europe (17%) accounting for a combined total of 96% of the fleet. Sixty percent of the Legacy 450 jets in operation today are in fleet ownership with the largest fleet operator (Flexjet) owning 16 aircraft. Twenty percent of the Legacy 450s built are leased. As of October 2018, the Embraer Legacy 450 market is comprised of 88% owned since new versus 12% used. The fleet percentage for sale is 2.5% and the average days a Legacy 450 is on the market is currently 95 days. Meanwhile, the total number of Legacy 500 aircraft built as of this writing was 79. Sixty-seven are in operation globally, 64 are wholly-owned, none are in shared ownership and three are in fractional ownership. Twelve are at the factory awaiting delivery.

Of the Legacy 500 aircraft in operation by continent, North America has the largest percentage (63%), followed by Europe (14%) and South America (11%), accounting for a combined total of 88% of the fleet. Fifteen percent of the Legacy 500 jets in operation today are in fleet ownership with the largest fleet operator (Flexjet) owning four. Five of the Legacy 500s built to date are leased. As of October 2018, the Embraer Legacy 500 market is comprised of 88% that are owned since new versus 12% used. The fleet percentage for sale is 8.8% and the average days a Legacy 500 is on the market is currently 51 days.

Payload & Range

As we have mentioned in past articles, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Legacy 450’s ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ (611lbs) is considerably less than that offered by the Legacy 500 (1,628lbs), as shown in Table A (top, left).

use accelerated depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first few years of the applicable recovery period (see Table C, left). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, aircraft used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year recovery period, or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a six-year recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in any given year. The US enacted the 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act into law on December 22, 2017. Under the new Act, taxpayers may in the first year be able to deduct up to 100% of the cost of a new or pre-owned aircraft purchased after September 27, 2017 and placed in service before January 1, 2023. This 100% expensing provision is a huge bonus for aircraft owners and operators. After December 31, 2022 the Act decreases the percentage available each year Aircraft Index see Page 145

Asking Prices & Quantity

The current used market for the Legacy 450 aircraft shows a total of one aircraft for sale with an invitation for buyers to ‘make offer’. The same is true of the six Legacy 500 aircraft for sale at the time of writing. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variations in price. Of course, the final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

The points in Chart D (above) are centered on the same aircraft. Pricing used in the vertical axis is as published in the Vref Pricing Guide. The productivity index requires further discussion in that the factors used can be somewhat arbitrary. Productivity can be defined (and it is here) as the multiple of three factors: 1. Four Passenger Range (nm) with available fuel; 2. The long-range cruise speed flown to achieve that range; 3. The gross cabin volume available for passengers and amenities. Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft buyers are usually impressed with price, range, speed and cabin size. Unsurprisingly, the Legacy 500 demonstrates a higher level of productivity – however, it is

Table D and Table E (previous page) depict an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2018 model Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over fiveand seven-year periods. The tables assume a 2018 list price of $16.57m for the Legacy 450 and $19.995m for the Legacy 500, per Vref Pricing Guide.

priced at $3.425m more than the Legacy 450. For that higher purchase price, operators will own a jet offering substantially more ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ capability, a larger cabin with an extra executive seat, and 200nm additional range. However, the owner of a Legacy 450 will appreciate the greater baggage volume and a lower hourly variable operating cost. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them.

In Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business aircraft operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision. The Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 are both

popular jets today, though we will watch with interest how the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 impact their value on the used market after 2019. It will be especially interesting to note how many Legacy 450 owners decide to upgrade their aircraft to the Praetor 500 configuration. Operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. T

What’s the Future for Business Jet Cabin Connectivity? What are the short- and medium-term development goals in private jet connectivity? Dave Higdon speaks to Satcom Direct’s Jared Maynard and Gogo Business Aviation’s Brian Wilson about the hopes and possibilities for operators… ot too long ago the alpha and omega of in-flight connectivity involved using a flight phone and paying staggering per-minute connections. But only for those aircraft so equipped. Then about 20 years ago entrepreneurs, engineers and innovators began finding ways to expand on that spartan service level, first adding text messaging capabilities, then narrow bandwidth computer networking, and finally easing into high-speed, wide bandwidth internet connectivity. Today, some of these systems' services rival the high-speed internet we use on the ground, in our

offices and homes. So where does in-flight connectivity go from here? The overall aim is for greater speed on global networks becoming available on a growing number of aircraft. Much of the growth in access is sought aboard ever-smaller aircraft as engineers and designers continue to invent more-compact hardware that uses less power to sustain their connections to a global network. We can give you a hint about the heading of this technology, and its short-term course is moving towards matching the performance of terrestrial networks, if not easing ahead in the longer-term future.

Business aircraft, from heavy twin propjets through to the largest Bizliners, enjoy a wide range of options. And the speed and bandwidth of those systems is accelerating steadily. The use of terrestrial networks continues to grow relentlessly, with a 17% one-year gain in use of computers to monitor production machines, a 30% increase in using networks to support asset performance management, and growth in using IT systems to monitor customers, their habits and satisfaction levels, according to IFS. Expect airborne systems to catch up and work to keep pace, according to various observers. Hearing executives of aircraft OEMs and in-flight internet systems providers echo one another in their outlooks leaves little doubt about their goals and ambitions.

Satcom Direct

We asked executives from various airborneconnectivity providers to gain their perspectives. Following are the thoughts of Jared Maynard, Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

aircraft resale sales manager, Satcom Direct. “We can already see a glimpse of the future right now,” he offers. “Just take a step back and look at the enormous increase in Wi-Fi installations (Air-To-Ground (ATG) and Satellite) on business jets over the past twenty-four months. “Look at the growing list of airlines that offer inflight Wi-Fi and look at the millions of connected cars on the road each day. Everything that flies in the future will likely be connected in some manner. I’m confident that this will expand well beyond jets into turboprops, piston aircraft, drones and even eVTOL transport.” Asked about the immediate priorities for taking jet connectivity forward in the short- and mediumterm, Maynard points towards the ‘Three Cs’ – Capacity, Compatibility and Cost. “As more aircraft are added, network capacity needs to outpace demand,” he elaborates. “In the past, capacity issues and network congestion have led to poor user experiences and slow adoption. Use of high-throughput satellite constellations and steerable beams will be necessary to target resources and remedy coverage/capacity issues that are common in high-traffic areas. “In terms of compatibility, compact, lightweight, high efficiency satellite antennas are needed for smaller airframes. The mechanically-steered antennas currently used for Ka- and Ku-band networks are too large for most jets. Recent advances in electronically steered flat panel antennas will bring significant advances in speed and capabilities to this underserved global market,” he forecasts. “Meanwhile, the average price per Megabyte for Ka- and Ku-band satellite connectivity is now less than $0.50,” Maynard reveals. “Costs for equipment and installation have also started to drop. Competition between service providers, increased capacity, usage-based billing, and new equipment options for a wider range of

aircraft are creating downward pricing pressure. If these trends continue, it will rapidly accelerate worldwide adoption,” he concludes.

Gogo Business Aviation

Brian Wilson, director, key accounts, Gogo Business Aviation offered perspectives on the immediate priorities taking jet connectivity forward in the short and medium term. “The biggest priority is and will continue to be to create an experience for passengers similar to what they have on the ground,” he explains. “It was reported the average age of the business traveler has dropped to a new low of 39. These folks envision that they can do in the air what they do on the ground, including social media, streaming content, VPN and more).” Concerning the challenge to expanding that experience, Wilson adds, “The race is always in the antenna; therefore, if you and I could create a 12” x 12” x 2” formal fuselage antenna that could fit any aircraft and deliver no less than 15Mb/s we would be billionaires. “Unfortunately, the industry and technology is just not there yet. Ku- and Ka-band have delivered speeds that fit the 10-30Mb/s range, but that is only for the very privileged due to the size of the antenna (only fitting large size aircraft); installation costs of between $500k and $800k; and monthly service fees above $10k (and reaching $25k to $30k).” With these challenges still to be solved, Gogo has continued to adapt to give customers a better product. “Gogo delivered the new Avance L5 product that provides an upgrade path from our Air-to-Ground (ATG) system,” Wilson offers. “The L5 is still an ATG system covering the US, southern Canada and Alaska, but it delivers speeds capable of allowing streaming content Netflix, Facetime calling, playing YouTube videos - while flying. 96

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

“This innovative product has been a phenomenal success; we are sold out throughout 2019, and by the end of 2019 we will have more than 500 aircraft flying with L5 and 5,000 aircraft flying with both L5 and legacy ATG.” Gogo owns the network, has exclusive rights to the bandwidth and can ensure no other company can create a product that interferes with its system. “We’ve reached our short-term priority by giving passengers what they want: faster speeds, more capabilities and a better experience,” Wilson continues. And for the medium-term? “As I stated, the race is in the antenna. An antenna that will of course be on the top of the aircraft, so it is satellite-based in lieu of ATG,” Wilson offers. “This will just augment our ATG system, not necessarily replace it, meaning aircraft will use ATG in the US and switch to Satellite when out of coverage areas. “This should be seamless to the passenger as our advanced router will provide for switching of networks without interruption. The biggest advantage, of course, is seeking worldwide coverage or the closest you can get to that. “Gogo is following its phenomenal success in Commercial Aviation with the 2Ku system and is introducing a Ku system for business jet aircraft for late 2019 or early 2020, and has also been named an equipment and service provider for Certus (Iridium Next). “The point I’m making is that to reach the next level of the passenger experience at a price they can afford and give worldwide coverage, Gogo is either creating new products to fit that demand or partnering with the emerging companies slated to dominate the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite systems,” Wilson concludes.

usiness aircraft mostly operate at small/medium airports. In degraded weather conditions (i.e., fog and snow), it is not usually possible to land at these airports because they’re not equipped with costly ground installations enabling CAT2 or CAT3 operations. “The Business Aviation community has been looking for solutions with which aircraft can land in bad weather conditions, even at low-equipped airports, with the long-term goal of landing at any airport as if it were always a beautiful day,” explains Arnaud Turpin, vision systems technical expert at Dassault Aviation. “As of now, they rely on enhanced vision system (EVS) and synthetic vision system (SVS) technologies.” EVS is based mostly on infrared sensors and has been installed in the nose of business aircraft for 15 years in an attempt to operate at small/medium airports, even in degraded weather conditions, by showing EVS imagery in the head-up display (HUD) of the pilot. “EVS enables enhancement to natural vision, providing a visual advantage over natural vision only. Dassault Aviation had its first EVS (CMC Electronics) certified on a Falcon 2000 in 2007,” says Turpin. “But current EVS technology still suffers from certain limitations. It is not able to see through clouds and provides only a limited visual advantage compared to the naked eye. “So, during an approach performed with only EVS in low-visibility conditions, pilots see the required ground references only at the very end of the approach.”

SmartView SVS

While EVS has a (relatively) longer history, SVS technology has been integrated in business aircraft only during the last decade, and it is now witnessing some significant momentum. SVS enables pilots to gain an accurate idea of their surroundings, whether visibility outside the aircraft is good or not, through the ‘synthetization’ of key flight information. “They do this by combining a database of topographical maps, the global positioning system (GPS) location of the aircraft and data from satellites”, offers Stephen Alcock, senior director, business leader for Business and General Aviation EMEAI at Honeywell Aerospace. “For example, Honeywell’s SmartView SVS Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

provides pilots with a natural and easy-tounderstand depiction of terrain using 3D images and flight symbology on the primary flight display, ensuring it is right where the pilot needs it. “It also provides useful features such as information about the airport and runway environment, including an extended course centreline and color-coding for absolute altitude terrain. “These features and many more all increase situational awareness for pilots, and this is exactly what we want to achieve. At its core, an SVS is a safety system created to make flying safer and more enjoyable for pilots and passengers,” Alcock notes. In the Business Aviation space, SVS is becoming increasingly popular as the demand continues to grow – and this is something that is being matched through the inclusion of the systems in new avionics and the ability to retrofit. “For example, Gulfstream’s G500 features our SmartView SVS as part of the Primus Epic Gulfstream Symmetry cockpit. What’s special about this is not only is it the standard avionics system in the G500, the Symmetry cockpit features Honeywell’s touch-screen technology and is the first application to utilize this technology”, says Alcock.

The Benefits of SVS

SVS provides greater benefit to pilots in poor visibility conditions than traditional systems by giving the pilot a view of terrain that would typically be obstructed. “They also provide great benefit to pilots when flying into unfamiliar airports by giving them a clear view of the runway and surrounding obstacles,” says Alcock. “This can be advantageous for pilots who fly in and around mountainous terrain, often fly to unfamiliar airports or fly in areas known for low visibility. “SVS do not just assist in the air, they are just as useful on the ground. They can be of great use at an airport where runway markings and other directional tools are limited or nonexistent. “Say you are at an unfamiliar rural airport with a sub-par runway, an SVS will take away some of the stress that a situation could cause, giving the pilot a visual they would not otherwise have. “The importance of this increases when factors such as time of day and weather are included, as is true for situations in which the systems are already in use. Mobility in urban landscapes is going to include the issue of busier airspace the majority of the time, so if the pilot knows that static objects are

“There is quite simply no point in an SVS being difficult to understand as that will render the safety gains redundant.” - Stephen Alcock, Honeywell taken care of then it allows them to place their focus on the changing situation they navigate”, says Alcock.

SVS Operation and Training

SVS utilizes software that uses 3D imaging to provide pilots with a clear and intuitive means of understanding their flying environment. This software utilizes a host of databases to generate a map on a designated display within the cockpit avionics systems. “This passivity enhances safety for the pilot and allows the pilot to have a reduced workload midflight,” Alcock explains. “Such systems are designed to be as easy to understand as possible. There is quite simply no point in an SVS being difficult to understand as that will render the safety gains redundant. “It is very much in the interests of the manufacturer, aircraft OEM and pilot to have a system they can glance at and understand with a quick look. “If you think about the distraction that a bad satellite navigation system in a car can be and then compare that with a system that is simple, easy-toread and provides you with everything you need to know the same principle applies to SVS, except everything is amplified by ten times.” Regardless of the systems installed, pilots must be prepared for their flight ensuring items such as a physical chart are on board and that they have a back-up system for their route in case there is an outage mid-flight. 100

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

“In terms of the system itself, making sure that it’s up to date, along with all the other computer systems on the aircraft is really important,” Alcock elaborates. “This can be as simple as making sure the database the SVS operates from has their destination airport on, to checking the software across the airplane is current.” SVS are a support to safety, but their use on-board does not replace any aspect of pilot training. “Pilots are still trained to use the technology as a backup and not as a sole source of information. Pilots should still have a good idea of where they are going, and what weather they will encounter en route and upon arrival,” Alcock highlights. “At the end of the day, an SVS enhances a pilot’s vision of their surroundings and destination while reducing their workload and simplifying instrument flying, but it is nothing more than an aid,” he emphasizes. “Dedicated training to ensure that a pilot is maximizing the capability that an SVS gives can only serve to enhance the safety benefit from the system.”

Development of Combined Vision

SVS is independent of weather conditions since it is based on GPS positioning and terrain/airport/ obstacle databases embedded in the aircraft. “It provides very good global, situational awareness to pilots whatever the weather condition. “But it is not possible to use only synthetic vision to land, since it does not provide a real, sensed image of the outside world. For instance, if an aircraft, vehicle or animal is on the runway SVS will

“FalconEye is offered as an option on the Falcon 8X, the Falcon 2000S/LXS and the modernized version of the Falcon 900LX. Almost all Falcon 8X customers have selected FalconEye.” not be able to see it”, argues Turpin. Combining both EVS and SVS technologies has been targeted for many years by Business Aviation OEMs, but the concern has to do with how to integrate them together in the same image without confusing the pilot between the virtual world provided by SVS and the real world provided by EVS. “Indeed, there is a potential safety concern with a CVS image: At the decision altitude of the approach, the pilot is required to see the needed ground references with natural vision or with the EVS to continue the approach,” explains Turpin. “How can we be sure that the pilot will use the EVS and not the SVS part of the image to make this decision when a combined vision image is displayed in the HUD?” Dassault has committed its effort during the last years to design, develop and certify the first Combined Vision System (CVS); a device called FalconEye. “It has been developed in partnership with Elbit Systems”, Turpin offers. “In addition to a HUD with a large 40 x 30-degree field of view, the main FalconEye features include a new generation, multisensor EVS with high resolution and a large field of view, an SVS with several specific features that enable it to combine with EVS and to ease approaches in low-visibility conditions, and a Dassault Aviation patented CVS with built-in EVS and SVS.” FalconEye is offered as an option on the Falcon 8X, the Falcon 2000S/LXS and the modernized version of the Falcon 900LX. Almost all Falcon 8X customers have selected FalconEye. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Earlier this year the Falcon 8X was certified by EASA and the FAA for an enhanced flight vision system (EFVS) capability that gives operational credit for poor visibility approaches down to 100ft, thereby improving access to airports in bad weather. The new capability was certified for operational use following the completion of a joint EASA/FAA certification campaign earlier in 2018. EFVS to 100ft is expected to be approved for the Falcon 2000LX and Falcon 900LX shortly. On the Falcon 8X, FalconEye will also be qualified in dual HUD configuration. “By providing the same information and heads-up views to both the flying and monitoring pilot, the dual HUD system will further improve crew coordination and safety,” explained Philippe Rebourg, project test pilot at Dassault Aviation. “In addition, based on the new EFVS FAA rules, EFVS to LAND operations will eventually be certified in dual HUD configuration.” Dual HUD benefits include the use of HUD by pilots being made easier and better crew coordination. “The pilot flying with HUD can be right seat or left seat and the pilot in the right seat can get used to the HUD before becoming a ‘left seat’ pilot. Moreover, the pilot monitoring has access to the same level of information as the pilot flying. “Last, but not least, both pilots have their eyes outside during take-off and landing as the danger is often outside”, concludes Rebourg.

OPERATING  FLIGHT PLANNING

Flying to the Middle East: Top Trip Planning Tips What should an international operator know when planning a business jet flight into the Middle East? What are the complexities to overcome and plan around?

Jetex’s Salem Bokai provides his top four pointers… lying to the Middle East can be highly rewarding for those pursuing a business venture in the region – but it’s not something to be undertaken without a clear understanding of the complexities involved. Thorough planning is recommended, ideally with the help of a trip support provider. To help avoid the more common difficulties that could be encountered, the following are some of the top tips from Jetex…

F

Tip 1: Be aware of working days in the region

While the international weekend is Saturday and Sunday, the weekend in the Middle East is different. For the majority of countries in the region, the weekend falls over Friday and Saturday, and in some others (e.g. Iran) it’s Thursday and Friday. Oman 102

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

recently switched to Friday and Saturday. Adopting different weekend days naturally reduces the number of mutual business days between foreign operators and official agencies/authorities to just four (or in some cases three) working days. Moreover, the Middle East is known for its multiple lengthy public holidays. In addition to national/local public holidays which are tailored per country, two long public holidays are observed for the entire region (the Eid). Combined with the different weekend days, operators planning to fly into the region will need to be fully aware since they may have a significant impact on the possibility of receiving some necessary approvals and/or permits to fly over or into the Middle East.

OPERATING  FLIGHT PLANNING

Tip 2: Know what permits you will need

Unlike in Europe and North America where you can file your flight plan and fly, operators will need permits and approvals to fly over and into Middle Eastern countries. Civil aviation authorities require a set minimum notice period (ranging between 24-72 working hours) to approve overflight or landing permits. In most cases a non-scheduled operator will be obliged to declare the purpose of their flight and landing, provide details of a local sponsor, and also provide details of passengers and crew on board the flight.

Tip 3: What are the safety and security concerns?

There are several safety- and security-related hot spots in this region, including Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Sinai of Egypt. All those no-fly or nonpreferred fly-zones (basically war zones) impose serious limitations to an operator’s freedom of air transport in this region. Avoiding warring countries may well add extra

flying time, distance and fuel cost which eventually means extra costs. Operators flying into the region should know in advance where the trouble spots are, and plan accordingly.

Tip 4: Understand the logistical issues

International airports usually have the necessary equipment to handle all types of aircraft, 24/7. However, the situation at regional and domestic airports in the Middle East is not the same. For example, some airports cannot receive certain aircraft types, due to limited runway capability or because of a lack of equipment. Moreover, some of those airports close at weekends (remember, Middle East weekends are likely to be different to international weekends) and at night. In some cases, airports may only open on request. Moreover, there are some domestic airports (usually located in minor cities or towns) that do not have adequate accommodation to cater for international visitors.  More information from www.jetex.com

Bonus Tip: Payment Matters

In addition to Jetex’s tips (above), others familiar with the Middle East reveal that issues can arise in regard to payment. Non-scheduled operators will likely have to pay for ground services, airport fees, fuel, catering, and more, in cash, and before departure. Complicating issues is the fact that credit cards are not always accepted (particularly in sanctioned countries such as Syria, Sudan, and Iran), or in countries where infrastructure does not support this form of payment (e.g. Algeria). Meanwhile, payment in cash can also be problematic, particularly where the exchange rate doesn’t favor the payer. In those cases, payment through third parties (service providers) remain the best way forward.

OPERATING  MANAGEMENT

Who Should Manage Your Flight Operation? What are the dangers of not having the right expertise to manage your business jet operation? How can the right manager enhance an aircraft owner’s choices? Andre Fodor illustrates with a real-life scenario… ot long ago, I received a call from a concerned client asking me to intercede on a deal he felt would turn bad. His friend was preparing to make an offer on an older Large Cabin Jet. Being a newcomer to aircraft ownership, the friend thought he could get the deal done by himself. Spotting the danger, his friend, a seasoned aircraft owner, contacted me to look at the proposed acquisition and make sure it passed muster. In this case, the buyer was lucky to have such a great friend!

N

106

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

We were able to avert disaster right before the buyer wrote the check for a non-refundable deposit, which would have legally bound him to a poorlywritten purchase agreement. The client’s appointed chief pilot was of little help, having had no previous management experience. He was blinkered by the idea of flying some heavy iron. There was no acquisition plan and no study accounting for the operational cost of an older aircraft, the need for (and cost of) an engine program, or the cost of APU coverage.

Management 1.qxp_Finance 19/11/2018 16:59 Page 2

“But not every pilot has the experience and management acumen to get the best value for your dollar.” The buyer hadn’t understood that early engine serial numbers are subject to hard TBOs (as opposed to being on-condition), so a correction between residual TBO and the overhaul cost would have to be applied towards the operational cost and the aircraft acquisition price. Blissfully unaware that an upcoming main landing gear inspection would be valued at 12% of the acquisition price, the buyer and his chief pilot were only looking at the cost to buy without any knowledge of the items that could impact the value. With no knowledge of planning a pre-buy inspection, no inquiry regarding the availability of required (NextGen) avionics upgrades, and no structured acquisition plan there was just money, metal with wings and a sizable headache heading the way of the buyer.

The Reality Check

After a short discussion and a basic Q&A session to understand the buyer’s net worth, it was clear that he was purchasing more aircraft than he could afford. We built a simple spreadsheet containing fixed costs and variable costs that showed the buyer he would be spending $2.4m to operate 300 hours annually. His expression confirmed that he was uncomfortable with such costs. Instead, we identified where compromises could be made on a slightly smaller but newer jet. The smaller aircraft came with some residual warranty, was already enrolled on an engine maintenance program, and cleared the hurdle of expensive buyins. It was a nice corporate aircraft with two previous owners. It had been well-loved and boasted a strong pedigree. After an extensive pre-buy inspection, the buyer had an airplane that fitted his budget and need, and more importantly had a plan of action on how best to operate it.

Rules for Buying a Jet

Following are four basic rules for would-be aircraft owners to consider when hiring the right management and avoiding making similar mistakes. Rule 1: Bigger does not equal better. A big, cheap aircraft will tend to mean it is on the wrong side of the viability curve. There is certainly value in this type of acquisition for some owners, but it will require good experience and a strong stomach for the costs associated with older aircraft. ‘Big ticket’ items may be found during future inspections and flight operations. Replacement parts may be scarce. It should go without saying that where an older aircraft is concerned you must have expertise when buying and operating. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Rule 2: Successful operations are managed professionally. There are great pilots and great managers. Some can be both. But not every pilot has the experience and management acumen to get the best value for your dollar. There’s nothing wrong with a pilot wanting to become involved in management. If that’s the case, find an advisor that can mentor the new manager until they can operate solo with confidence. Retaining advisors for projects where there is a lack of expertise is a valuable decision for your operation. Rule 3: An experienced manager will help owners find the right balance. An experienced manager should not hesitate in vetoing a prospective aircraft purchase and be able to clearly communicate why. They should ultimately place the principal’s business interests ahead of their own. For this, the manager should be well compensated. Rule 4: Wealth comes from being an expert at something. Hire the best talent to support you in structuring the aircraft purchase and its operation. That’s the recipe for success in any business, and especially in aircraft ownership. Everybody must start their management career somewhere. I learned by shadowing experienced professionals, learning from the best and then from the worst. But there is always something new to learn – managers never stop learning throughout their careers. An effective manager’s greatest asset should be their ability to effectively network and communicate. While they can’t be experts on everything, they should know who to call when they need to. Meanwhile, anyone buying a corporate aircraft should do so through a process of excellent decisions. That can happen as they assemble a team of experts that includes their flight department managers. It’s puzzling that so many mistakes are made in aircraft purchases owing to a lack of expertise. A prospective buyer can’t afford not to hire the best management and ensure a synergy between the parties. It’s good business, it’s effective, and it’s the right choice for a successful aircraft ownership experience.  With a focused approach on global excellence and creativity, Andre Fodor has managed flight operations for the U.N. and Flight Options as well as being a senior demonstration pilot and instructor for Embraer Aircraft. He is currently the Aviation Director at Johnsonville Sausage.

Is There a Near-Term Fix for Future Pilot Shortages? Can the current wave of student drop-outs prior to

achieving a pilot license be solved? Mike Chase assesses in this latest JETNET >>KNOW MORE feature…

e have learned from AOPA that 80% of students drop out before earning a pilot’s license. The ‘number one’ reason is the high costs. The estimated average cost for pilot training is $200,000 over a two- to four-year period to get from a private pilot (minimum 40 hours) to commercial (250 hours) to airline transport pilot (1,500 hours, and at least 23 years old) in the US (per Wayman.net). Other industries offer lower training costs and a more immediate financial reward than that seen in aviation. The candidate pool decreases as the qualification level and cost increases from student pilot, to private pilot, to certified flight instructor, to instrument rating pilot, to airline transport Pilot. General Aviation is the primary training ground for most commercial airline pilots and is defined as all aviation other than military and commercial airlines.

minimum 1,500 hours (at least 250 as pilot-incommand) may he/she apply for an airline transport pilot (ATP) license in a Part 121 operation. In 2013, the FAA revised the ATP requirements to extend to co-pilots. The new requirement changed the whole paradigm to becoming an airline co-pilot. Today, unless you have 1,500 hours in your log book you cannot apply to an airline. For most candidates these are hours flown on meager wages (if not at their own expense), typically as a certified flight instructor (CFI) to help build up their flight hours. Effectively, this has raised the bar so high to becoming an airline pilot that far fewer individuals are willing to pursue the career path today. The hot question within the industry is whether we’re likely to see this trend reverse, and if so, when? JETNET has learned that there are many flight schools, college programs, airlines, corporations and military/governments working feverishly to find

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2018

In 2007 the mandatory retirement age of pilots was moved from age 60 to 65. The average age of all pilots, as reported by the FAA, in 2017, was 44.9 years old. Students in 2017 averaged 32.5 years old and ATPs averaged 50.6 years old. Nevertheless, the fact stands that 30% of the work force is at (or near) retirement age, and new-hires replenish only ~2% of the workforce annually.

Outlook for the Future

The 2018 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook, a respected industry forecast of personnel demand, projects that 790k new civil aviation pilots, 754k new maintenance technicians, and 890k new cabin crew will be needed to fly and maintain the world fleet over the next 20 years. The forecast is inclusive of both www.AVBUYER.com

As reported by JETNET (Table D, bottom, right), as of September 2018, there were 2 over 111,000 aircraft and helicopters in-operation worldwide, an increase of 3,365 (3.1%) compared to September 2017. The split between the three segments is 39% business aircraft; 29% helicopter; and 32% commercial airliners. Each aircraft and helicopter requires one or more pilots.

Regional Pressure

Currently 50% of all new Airbus and Boeing aircraft are going to Asia-Pacific, putting special pressure on pilot demand in that region. There’s also pressure in the Middle East, where the airlines are having to rely less on ex-pat pilots. Emirates Airline, for example, is parking up to 20% of its fleet due to the pilot shortage. Forty-six aircraft have flown to Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport, been parked and haven’t left. Emirates’ President Tim Clark revealed that his airline is 100-150 pilots short. Among the regional airlines there is greater turnover of pilots for numerous reasons, including lower pay. Business Aviation has also been encountering difficulties in crew staffing. Specifically, North America’s need for more pilots stems from retirement, while Asia’s is more to do with keeping up with growth. South America is a little different: The economy has not been doing well in Brazil but has shown signs of improvement recently. Creating 39,500 pilots on an annual basis is going to need some imaginative thinking by all stakeholders. It’s the training side of the business, Aircraft Index see Page 145

however, that is in fastest-growth mode - for example at L3 Commercial Training Solutions (CTS), which plans to triple its output of trained pilots to 5,000 annually in the next five years. The training and simulator market, while growing, is also fiercely competitive as companies vie to supply the best training solution at the best price.

Disruptive Affordability?

According to GAMA, the fleet of aircraft used for training averages 48.1 years old. Half of the costs of flight training is spent on aviation fuel. During the recent NBAA Annual Convention in Orlando, we attended several presentations by George Bye, of Bye Aerospace, on developing the world’s first certified electric aircraft specifically aimed at being a flight trainer aircraft to help solve the issue of high flight training costs for pilots. The Sun Flyer 2 is an entirely new category of robust electric aircraft. It is to be certified under the new FAR Part 23 regulation (effective on August 30, 2017 including for the first time electricpropulsion), powered by a Siemens electric-propulsion system, with operating Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Gender Gap

A pertinent discussion regarding the impending shortage of pilots and technicians relates to the gender gap. Globally, just 5.18% of commercial pilots are women, according to the Air Line Pilots Association International trade union. In the UK the figure is lower. About 4.77% of airline pilots are women there. Referring back to Table A, the FAA reported that 7% of all active certified pilots were women. That percentage includes all classes of pilots, private, commercial, ATP and rotorcraft. This was an increase of only 0.3% more in 2017 compared to 2016. Indian airlines employ the highest proportion (12.4%) of female pilots, according to the latest statistics from the International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISWAP). Indian companies have aggressively encouraged more women to become airline pilots in what they see as an upcoming pilot shortage. Other countries are trying to increase these numbers as well. One European airline says it has set a target that 20% of new entrant pilots should be female by 2020.

costs five-times less than a Cessna 172. The total hourly operating costs for a Cessna 172 is $88 (per Bye Aerospace), with AvGas prices ranging from $4.50 and $6.50 per gallon. Conklin & de Decker reports a higher variable cost for a Cessna 172 at $105 per hour. Regardless, the hourly operating costs for a Cessna 172 provide a stark comparison to the projections for the Sun Flyer 2 ($14).

This is disruptive affordability in action as the next generation two-seat all-electric trainer will help lower the high pilot training costs cited as the primary reason for 80% of student pilots dropping out before achieving a pilot license.

Global 7500 Business Jet Earns FAA Approval Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft - the only business jet that can connect New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco nonstop - is now FAA certified and will enter service at the end of this year.

T

he Global 7500 business jet promises to be the highestperforming aircraft in the industry and is aimed at revolutionizing the market, according to Bombardier. “Obtaining the Global 7500 aircraft Type Certification from the FAA marks one of the final chapters in our very successful development program,” said Stephen McCullough, Bombardier’s vice president of integrated product development for the Global 7500 and Global 8000. Earlier this year, the Global 7500 demonstrated its ability to fly further than any other business jet by expanding its advertised range to 7,700nm, a full 300nm

further than initial commitments. These achievements have enabled the Global 7500 aircraft to push the boundaries of business travel. Upon entry into service, the Global 7500 will offer spaciousness that Bombardier says is unique among business jets, with its award-winning interior featuring a full-size kitchen and four true living spaces. It will also debut Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and will be exclusive to the new Global family of aircraft.

The first phase of the expansion includes the acquisition of assets of Aspect Aircraft Maintenance, Inc., an aircraft maintenance and repair provider in Calgary, Canada, where a Textron Aviation Mobile Service Unit (MSU) currently operates, and a new MSU base in Toronto. The Calgary MSU operates as part of the Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certification, approved to perform maintenance and repairs on Citation, King Air and Hawker aircraft. As part of the acquisition, the MSU team based at Calgary International Airport will grow in the number of technicians and expand its capabilities to deliver AOG support and limited inspection items and engine maintenance. www.txtav.com

World Fuel Services launch New Card

World Fuel Services recently showcased the redesign and renaming of their leading card and loyalty programs, World Fuel Contract card, AVCARD, and World Fuel Rewards. The unified look and names tie the cards into the World Fuel family and reflect a need for pilots and operators to easily understand the exceptional benefits the programs provide. These new enhancements ensure pilots and crews can efficiently transact business and earn rewards no matter where they fly and what they purchase. www.wfscorp.com Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Honeywell Engines to Power Praetor Models

Honeywell’s HTF7500E engines will power the two recently announced Embraer Praetor models. The engines bring a combination of best-in-class reliability, enhanced dispatchability, reduced noise and increased fuel efficiency. Embraer is also equipping these models with Honeywell’s auxiliary power units, cabin-related management systems, pressure and control systems, and environmental controls, along with optional inertial reference units. The HTF7500E engine was designed from the beginning with “built-in” thrust potential to accommodate growth. By taking advantage of the HTF7500E’s full power capability and excellent fuel efficiency, and through the addition of advanced winglets and fuel capacity, Embraer achieved a 3,900-nautical-mile range for its super midsize aircraft, the Praetor 600. Its midsize sibling, the Praetor 500, achieved a range of 3,250 nautical miles. www.honeywell.com/aero

©PiaggioAerospace

German AOC operation by most experienced Avanti operator with the largest Avanti fleet in Europe. Fast and easy enrolment: • No enrolment cost • Increased Engine TBO interval to 4100 h in AirGO operation only • Experienced pilots… Just buy and fly!

FEATURES New Noise Reduced Propeller / Anti-Skid / Pro Line 21 / LPV & ADSB out Electronic Charts and Maps Overlay / Paperless Cockpit / 2nd GPS Garmin Steep Approach (approved at London City Airport) Max Take Off Weight Increase (12,100 lbs.) / Polished Leading Edges

You can’t classify it as jet or turboprop: the Avanti EVO is a class of its own: Faster than a light jet, a stand-up cabin like a midsize jet, flying altitudes like airliners but with the fuel consumption of a turboprop. Low fuel consumption and the noise-reduction propeller design makes the EVO the greenest business jet. The AVANTI EVO amazes every passenger with its inviting 1.75-meter ceiling cabin allowing for comfortable movement and a gangway to walk through. The cabin noise level and vibrations are as low as in modern jets. With a convenient restroom with window, lavatory and wardrobe, the AVANTI EVO is the ideal airplane to be used for long flights while also landing on short runways. AirGO SERVICES The AirGO key business is the commercial charter and corporate management of private jets. The supervision of the process from purchase of your AVANTI EVO to the start of operation is a complementary service included in the AirGO management contract. Under the mandate the AirGO CAMO is fully responsible for maintenance tracking and supervision. The 24-h Sales & OPS Team organizes your flight as well as third party charter, schedules crews and takes care of your special wishes while the approved AirGO Training Organization oversees continuous pilot training.

Tri-Jets have earned a stellar reputation among owners and operators and usually command higher resale values than the competition. With efficient space management the Falcon 900 aircraft have a larger passenger seating area than the Gulfstream IV. These Tri-Jets weigh 15 tons less and are 22 feet shorter, providing a more beneficial ramp presence. The 900EX can speed across the Atlantic with all seats full at 0.84 IMN; and has 300 NM greater range than the Gulfstream IV-SP. Furthermore, the 900EX can fly from London to Kansas City, Buenos Aires to New Orleans and Anchorage to Seoul at 0.75 IMN with eight passengers and NBAA IFR reserves. The Falcon 900LX pictured above is considerably more capable than the Falcon 900EX. Revolutionary and the world's first purpose built fly-by-wire (FBW) business jet, the Falcon 7X capitalizes on Mach 2 technology. Evolving from the remarkable success of the 7X; The Falcon 8X has a longer cabin with 30 unique interior layout configurations to choose from, superb fuel efficiency and a range of 6,450 nm.
