Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT Mark Wilken

Looking Beyond the 2020 ADS-B Mandate ow that 2020 is here, the ADS-B mandate is in effect for controlled airspace in the US. Originally announced in 2010 by the FAA, ADS-B was created to increase safety by improving situational awareness, while reducing separation minima to create a more efficient aircraft traffic flow. While the FAA has estimated that over 100,000 aircraft were affected by this mandate, and most have been equipped with a solution, many aircraft continue to face avionics parts obsolescence issues.

N

Avionics Obsolescence: Why Does it Happen?

Avionics and engines can limit the life of an aircraft due to the financial cost of sustaining them. Many of the components that make up an avionics system are initially developed from technologies driven by consumer electronics. As consumer electronics evolve to become more reliable and have more features, avionics systems are also constantly evolving, which can render certain components obsolete. A good example is the popularity of cathode ray tube (CRT) displays that were installed in nearly every airplane produced from the 1980s through the mid-2000s. With the introduction of flat panel displays, factories that once produced CRTs faced a significantly diminished demand, mostly driven by consumer electronics. This demand shift not only rendered the technology obsolete in the consumer electronics market, but in the aviation market too. Now, with these displays manufactured in very limited quantities (lessening availability and increasing their cost), an aircraft operator’s only options to replace CRT displays is to find a suitable used replacement, or to upgrade their system.

What are the Latest Avionics Upgrades?

While most newly built aircraft are equipped with some of the latest avionics packages at the time they’re built, they can soon become outdated. Fortunately, there are many excellent retrofit solutions for thousands of popular aircraft today. These range from updates to a current system to complete retrofits that include a new autopilot, new transponders, new flight management systems and new displays. Among the leading solutions are the following… Garmin G1000 NXi: For thousands of airplanes, including the Beechcraft King Air C90, B200, 300, 350, Embraer Phenom 100 (and soon the 300), Cessna Citation Mustang, and Daher TBM 850 and 900, the Garmin 4  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

G1000 NXi is the most modern solution available. The G1000 NXi is available both for qualifying aircraft that do not have a G1000 system and as an upgrade to legacy Garmin G1000 systems. It offers many features over the standard G1000 such as SurfaceWatch Runway Monitoring, optional cockpit connectivity, MFD display (like in the HSI on the PFD), improved map performance, and many more upgrades. Garmin G5000: This retrofit is available for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP and the Citation Excel/XLS. The G5000 integrates a new autopilot, charts, WAAS/LPV, touchscreen controllers and many more features, including optional synthetic vision, turbulence detection. Collins Pro Line 21 Modernization: An upgrade to a large segment of aircraft currently equipped with Pro Line 21 avionics systems, this package includes qualifying Hawker models, Beechcraft King Airs and Premiers. It allows for synthetic vision, electronic charts, graphical weather and WAAS/LPV.

What’s the Future of Avionics Upgrades?

Avionics manufacturers are constantly looking at ways to improve flight. Whether it’s enhancing safety, improving efficiency, decreasing pilot workload, or a better passenger experience, avionics will always evolve to create a better way to fly. A case in point is Garmin’s revolutionary new Autoland feature in the Piper M600 SLS, which automatically finds an optimal destination and successfully lands the airplane when engaged. We can be sure that the next decade will see more availability of safety and performance upgrades including Auto-Throttles, CPDLC (Controller Pilot Datalink Communications), LPV Approaches, Taxi and Runway Awareness, Flight Recorders, Data Tracking and Trend Monitoring. So, as operators inevitably face avionics parts obsolescence issues as their installed equipment ages, there is much hope that truly innovative solutions for retrofit will continue to emerge in the marketplace to alleviate the problem.

Business Aviation Market Overview What are the latest trends and observations in the business aircraft market? Rolland Vincent, editor, Business Aviation Market Overview, provides snapshots and pointers for those weighing up a purchase decision in 2020… ith the Northern winter and Southern wildfires bringing reminders to us all that there are bigger forces at play, many active and prospective buyers of business aircraft are undoubtedly anxious for snow- and smoke-free skies ahead. Clouding their horizons are a variety of fluctuating indicators that demand their attention, the key elements of which are outlined in the following pages. These indicators highlight macroeconomic, geo-political, and environmental topics, as well as OEM industry, market inventory, flight operations, aircraft maintenance and aircraft valuation conditions. Collectively and individually, we believe that these remain among the most important variables to inform decision-making in the business aircraft marketplace. As always, we recommend that serious buyers engage the services of a professional aircraft broker/dealer, who is ideally placed to navigate what can be the turbulent skies of a business aircraft transaction.

Early Indicators to Watch in the New Year

In early 2020, what are some of the indicators we are watching more closely than others, each of which has important implications for prospective buyers? 20  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

• •

• •

The US GDP growth rate in 2019 is estimated at ~2.3%; most economic forecasters are expecting US growth to slip below 2% in 2020 (in line with its longer-term potential). GDP growth in the Euro area was an estimated 1.2%, continuing a sluggish trend that reflects a slowdown in the industrial heartlands of Germany and France. In December 2019, the European Central Bank forecasted GDP would increase by just 1.1% in 2020. Flight shaming and environmental topics have become more prominent, while industry players strive to stimulate demand for, and the supply of, sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). A dichotomy has emerged where OEMs have been relatively successful writing orders and delivering new business jets, against a backdrop of reduced pre-owned transactions and slowly increasing inventory for sale. Hyper-competition continues for new business jet orders, especially at the top of the market, keeping a lid on price inflation and (ultimately) aircraft residual values. Utilization of the business jet fleet continues to be relatively flat sequentially by most measures, despite underlying fleet growth as new deliveries outpace retirements and removals from service. page 24

MARKET INDICATORS

Thousands of business aircraft remain non-compliant with ADS-B Out rules that came into effect in the US beginning on January 1, 2020, creating the potential for a wave of retirements of older aircraft that have reached the end of their economic lives. With some exceptions, OEMs are transitioning from an unprecedented era of heavy product development investment towards a period where derivative models are likely to become more prominent. The potential for industry consolidation is accelerating, which we believe will result in fewer production models and the potential for fewer OEMs in the months and years to come. Derivative model announcements and out-of-production status (OOPS) shifts can have particularly important impacts on the valuations of older aircraft that are best understood with the help of aircraft transaction specialists.

Pre-Owned Market Update

Approximately 10% of the business jet fleet was listed as for sale on the JETNET database (~2,200 aircraft) at the time of writing. That’s up from a low of about 9% that was reached as the market peaked 14-18 months ago. Turboprop availability is hovering at about 7% of the fleet (~1,000 aircraft), although a remarkable 60% of aircraft for sale were initially delivered more than 20 years ago (the corresponding data for business jets was ~44%, as of this writing). This is certainly not to say that these aircraft have come to the end of their economic and useful lives. In fact, a pulsing of the JETNET database reveals that about half of business jets are still in operation 42 years after initial delivery. The same proportion of turboprops are ~50 years old. What’s impressive is how well the industry players – the owners and operators, flight crews and maintenance technicians, MRO shops, suppliers of parts, systems and services, and brokers/dealers – have remained engaged in the market. This despite the costs and hassles of keeping aging aircraft in the skies.

Market Preferences

JETNET iQ’s recently completed Q4 2019 survey of more than 500 business aircraft owners and operators in 61 countries revealed numerous insights, including aircraft brand/model purchase preferences, intentions, timing and likelihood. 24  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

AVBUYER.com

Beyond the pre-owned models that were highlighted to be of most interest to buyers throughout 2019 (specifically, the Phenom 300, Citation Model 560XL, Falcon 2000, Gulfstream G550, Beech King Air 200/250/350 and Pilatus PC-12), owners and operators have clearly become very comfortable operating aircraft that may no longer have that “new aircraft smell”. This is particularly the case in North America (US and Canada), where 80% of decided respondents indicated they do not agree with the statement that they fly new aircraft for up to five years and then replace them. Based on unit volumes in 2019, the ratio of pre-owned to new business jet transactions was about 3-to-1, one of the main reasons we believe that it is vitally important to monitor the activity and velocity of both the used and new aircraft markets. This is particularly the case when we consider pre-owned transactions tend to move more quickly (on average) and are therefore more likely to reflect current market conditions… at least to most. OEMs are certainly in the best position to monitor the pulse of the market as regards new aircraft orders and cancellations, but few monitor the market outside their competitive segments, and fewer still communicate net order details in a systematic way in their various investor and informational reports. All of this should highlight that reading and absorbing the many important details on the following pages is smart, due diligence as you seek to make the most informed decision possible. Despite the number of zeroes involved (and maybe because of it), that next aircraft promises to dramatically improve your access to personal and professional opportunities - from A to Z and back again! page 28 MI www.navigating360.com

Flight Activity – Europe December saw some growth in Business Aviation activity in Europe. Flights were up by 2.9% YoY. Most of the growth came in the business jet sector, up by 4.5%. For the full year, total activity was down 1.6% compared to 2018. Flight activity out of the UK slipped 3% in December, but most of the other larger markets were up, notably Italy and Austria. Spain had the strongest growth in 2019, while Germany declined the most. For the full year, the UK and Germany were the weakest regional markets. Large Jet activity was the motor behind the growth in December, most markedly in France, Germany and Italy. Small and Mid-size Jet traffic was up 15% in Italy while. The standout growth in AOC activity came in Italy (20%). Germany, Spain, Austria and Russia each had >10% growth. UK Charters fell 5%. Private activity was up 20% in the Czech Republic, but down by 13% in Spain. Intra-European flights were up 3% in December 2019, reducing the YTD deficit to 1.7% vs 2018. Flights to North America rose by 2% this year, but flights to Asia-Pacific fell 9%. “December activity was surprisingly positive, up 3% YOY,” notes Richard Koe, managing director, WINGX. “Partly this is due to December 2018 being particularly weak (this 28  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

December’s activity was still well below the peak December activity back in 2007). “The overall trend for this year is negative, with 2% fewer flights than 2018,” he added. “The growth this month has clearly come from the Super Mid-size, Super Light and Ultra Long-Range Jets, reflecting growth in the size of the active fleets in Europe towards the end of last year.” MI www.wingx-advance.com page 32

Flight Shaming Hits BizAv & Other Predictions for 2020 Brian Foley suggests that for private aviation, there are developments suggesting 2020 may shape up very differently to 2019. Here are his abridged thoughts, trends and predictions for the year. The Big Trend: Aircraft owners risk being publicly called out à la Prince Harry for his now infamous Gulfstream jet trip to pal Elton John’s. In 2020, private flyers will gravitate towards ways to evade this kind of judgement and public humiliation, either by voluntary third-party carbon offset programs (a good alibi if confronted), or via charter, fractional or other nonownership models (that better protect identities). To create favorable corporate identities, companies in the Business Aviation industry will tweak their ad copy and concoct PR stunts to demonstrate their commitment to the environment. Others will offer voluntary access to pay-as-yougo carbon taxes to accommodate those who really care and others who want to avoid public shaming. What to Watch: Follow the money. With the US stock market up around 30% in 2019 and a repeat performance unlikely, investors are looking to overseas financial markets for better returns in 2020. This will have the effect of stimulating nonNorth American and emerging markets which have been on hiatus for much of the decade. An inflow of investment due to attractive stock valuations coupled with an improved outlook for global growth and the probability of a successful Brexit will create a decent uptick in offshore business jet sales. The Unconventional Wisdom: A lot has been said of the sharing economy’s effect on the industry. It’s been popularized that a younger generation of fliers want nothing to do with aircraft ownership, only wanting access and the experience of private flying. The theory was this would further dent new aircraft sales while benefiting non-ownership models such as charter,

fractional and jet cards. That’s certainly not showing up in FAA flight statistics or even notionally. Charter continues to be an oversupplied market. Fractional aircraft providers are still a shadow of their former selves since the great recession. Feedback from leaders in the charter business suggests millennials are barely moving the needle. The Misplaced Assumption: US stock markets and corporate profitability have been consistently breaking records. In previous times this would have signaled a booming jet sales environment. Instead, sales have been flat for a decade and much of the stock market run-up can be attributed to artificial government interest rate stimulus rather than fundamentals. It could even be argued that sales have remained stable and not fallen any further only because of a good economy. This kind of reasoning would then portend a decrease in sales should economic growth falter in any way. The Bold Prediction: There are 41 models of new business jets from seven OEMs vying for just 700 total worldwide industry sales per year. With such a relatively small market and workforce cutbacks, it wouldn’t be surprising for a least one of the participants to call it quits. A ‘culling of the herd’ hasn’t occurred since Hawker Beechcraft went bankrupt a few years ago. Cessna ended up buying its ruins and four Hawker Beechcraft jet models were permanently removed from the market. Bombardier has surely been evaluating its Learjet division which saw only nine aircraft delivered through Q3 2019. The recent move to offer the stripped-down, no frills, discounted ‘Liberty’ edition could be interpreted as a move to get rid of the last of the inventory rather than a tactical market strategy. In short, looking at the above projections, 2020 will not be just another cookie-cutter 2019. MI www.brifo.com

G700 Announcement: What’s Next for Gulfstream? In the last Gulfstream Aircraft Quarterly Market Update, Hagerty Jet accurately predicted the announcement of the new G700. But what’s next for the OEM? While there were few surprises for Hagerty Jet Group in the announcement of the Gulfstream G700, the company had predicted the announcement of a sister ship called the G800 which would incorporate the upgrades of the G700 but maintain the shorter fuselage of the G650ER and have a range of 8,000nm. “A G800 model is a natural follow-up to the G650ER and will likely be announced eventually, but certification of the G700 is the primary focus,” Hagerty Jet suggests, adding “the 32  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

G700 will be a great airplane and a strong competitor to the Global 7500 but with a price tag of $75m. “Our concern is the limited number of potential buyers in a saturated market where Bombardier and Gulfstream have capacity to build 120 airplanes each and are competing head to head.” Prices of pre-owned G650s have

dipped towards $40m, giving a strong argument for buyers to remain focused on the used market. “The next logical product for Gulfstream to announce, apart from the G800, would be a new G400 model,” Hagerty suggests. This aircraft would be a shorter version of the G500, with two and a half living areas, a price point below $40m and a range of 4,000nm or more. “This segment of the market has been neglected by Gulfstream, Dassault and Bombardier. The Citation Columbus which would have filled this segment would have been a great opportunity for Cessna to gain market share, but plans have been put on hold indefinitely.

Quality Rating

The final month of 2019 saw Asset Insight’s tracked inventory fleet of 96 fixed-wing models decrease 1.6% to 1,748 units. December’s ‘for sale’ assets equated to a 9.9% annual increase… All four aircraft groups experienced inventory escalation: Small Jets led the way with a rise of 15.4%; Medium Jets followed at 9.8%; Large Jets increased 8.7%; and Turboprop availability grew 2.1%. During 2019, the average Ask Price for aircraft in the tracked fleet decreased 3.1%, with three groups losing ground. However, Medium Jet pricing increased 11%.

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

With the traditional Q4 transaction frenzy coming to a close, owners of lower quality assets apparently decided they needed to sell, slightly improving the quality of inventory assets entering 2020, while concurrently reducing availability of aircraft harboring higher nearterm maintenance costs. Our tracked inventory registered the following figures… Quality Rating: The ‘for sale’ fleet’s Quality Rating rose (improved) a nominal 0.2% in December, from November’s 5.198 to 5.206. This Quality Rating is within the ‘Very Good’ range on Asset Insight’s scale of -2.5 to 10. Maintenance Exposure: At $1.345m, Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) posted the lowest (best) monthly figure for all of 2019.

Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

The ETP Ratio is a useful indicator of an aircraft’s marketability. It’s 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%. During Q4 2019, assets whose ETP Ratio was 40% or more were listed for sale nearly 84% longer on average than aircraft whose Ratio was below 40% (215 versus 395 Days on the Market). December’s analytics also revealed that over 52% of the tracked models, and nearly 60% of the tracked fleet, posted an ETP Ratio greater than 40%. December’s fleet ETP Ratio worsened (increased) slightly to 64.8% from November’s 64.3%, the latter being the lowest (best) monthly Ratio since April. • • • •

In their ongoing battle for the best ETP Ratio, Turboprops ended the year in the lead by posting the lowest ETP Ratio (52.1%); Large Jets dropped to second place (55.1%); Small Jets remained unchanged (67.3%); Medium Jets worsened to 75.5%. page 40

Market Summary

The new year could result in some dramatic price decreases for older aircraft that have not met the January 2020 ADS-B equipage mandate. As mentioned last month, we believe nonequipped turbine assets will not be ‘worthless’, but their values will be negatively impacted. For aging assets, especially those with little time left before reaching their engine TBO, salvage value is a very real possibility. Large Jets: The tracked fleet total stayed the same, with inventory remaining 30 units higher than the previous year. The group’s Quality Rating has been in the ‘Outstanding’ range for the past eight months, and Maintenance Exposure improved (decreased) another 2% in December to post a 12-month best (low) figure. Unfortunately, Ask Pricing decreased an additional 1.2% to

Medium Jets: While the tracked inventory decreased by nine units, the group ended the year with 48 more listed assets. At 5.046, the Quality Rating registered in the ‘Very Good’ range, but March 2019 was the last time this figure was lower (worse). Curiously, Maintenance Exposure improved (decreased) 1.1% in December, but that still left it 2.7% worse (higher) for Q4 compared to Q3, while the ETP Ratio was up (worse) for the month and the quarter. Amid all this negativity, the group’s performance relative to Ask Price continues to amaze us. Ask Price worsened 3% in December but was up nominally for the quarter and 11% for the calendar year. Careful and detailed analytics are key for buyers seeking good value in this arena.

Small Jets Ask Price vs. Maintenance Exposure

Asset Quality Rating

$ Millions

Small Jets: The last time this group posted an ‘Excellent’ Quality Rating was in May 2019, and to find a better (lower) Maintenance Exposure figure one needs to look back to April 2019. The problem for sellers (a negotiating edge for buyers) is the high inventory level for many models, as the tracked fleet increased 73 units during 2019, even though December’s inventory decreased by 16. Pricing, not surprisingly, decreased 2.9% for the month, 1.8% for the quarter, and 5.7% for the year. If aircraft not equipped with ADS-B remain in the listed fleet, prices are expected to drop further now we have entered 2020.

Maintenance Exposure and the group’s ETP Ratio were better (lower) than December’s figure.

What Does the Market Hold in 2020?

As with most years, 2020 has its challenges for the pre-owned aircraft sales industry. But what can buyers and sellers expect? Rebecca Applegarth asks Lee Thomas

Eagle Aviation’s Lee Thomas how he sees the market…

ith the end of 2019 bringing a surge in pre-owned aircraft sales, the final number of business jet and turboprop transactions for the year has yet to be published (though it’s unlikely to match 2018 sales levels). Now Business Aviation has entered a new decade, and a New Year that brings the enforcement of ADS-B, and a US Presidential election. Coupled with murmurings that the economy could be heading for recession, it’s a timely question to ask those in the industry just how they see the year ahead unfolding. One December report emanating from the broker community attributed a year-end burst of activity in the pre-owned marketplace to buyers and sellers trying to make deals in 2019 as a hedge against economic,

political and tax uncertainties this year. “As we move into election year, there are always uncertainties,” notes Lee Thomas, president, Eagle Aviation. “However, I attribute more of the flurry in 2019 to the strong economy and the advantageous tax laws in the US.” Thomas started working for Eagle Aviation when he was 25, and has progressed through the ranks from aircraft research, to salesman, to vice-president of sales, to president. As well as its aircraft sales business, Eagle Aviation, based in Columbia, South Carolina, provides FBO, maintenance, paint and interior, parts and aircraft charter services. Eagle has historically specialized in Cessna Citation and Beechcraft King Air sales, but is also very active in the single-engine Cessna and Cirrus

“Finding good quality, later model aircraft remains a tall order at the start of this New Year.” markets, and has branched into the Embraer, Gulfstream and Falcon markets. So how do things look at the start of 2020? Can we expect to see the market slow down again as the new year gets underway? “We started 2020 with a flurry of activity, with several acquisitions and new inventory coming to the market,” Thomas shares. “Activity, generally, has been robust.” Nevertheless, the current marketplace is no place for buyers or sellers to enter without the correct information to hand. While inventory levels have been rising over the past twelve months, and asking prices continue to wane, Thomas describes the market as a “dynamic” one, where securing a great deal from among the available inventory requires a great deal of skill. “I couldn’t imagine trying to buy or sell in this market without experienced broker representation,” Thomas warns. “Finding good quality, later model aircraft remains a tall order at the start of this New Year.”

Encouraging Trends as 2020 Begins

Topics that grew in momentum as 2019 unfolded include the potential impact of the Millennials (perceived as preferring shared ownership/charter models of utilization instead of full ownership), and the optics of owning business aircraft in the midst of an increasing focus to reduce carbon footprints. Both trends, according to observers, could spell out tougher times ahead for business aircraft OEMs, dealers and brokers if demand for ownership drops. For the time being those fears do not tally with Thomas’ observation of the marketplace, however. “We have seen several first-time buyers enter the market,” he reveals. 46  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Pressed on his views for the year ahead, he adds, “I think 2020 is going to be an amazing year, assuming we can avoid worldwide conflict. The economy in the US remains robust which translates to increased activity.”

The ADS-B Ripple Effect (Real or Not?)

Of course, we couldn’t preview 2020 without due consideration of the fall-out of the ADS-B mandate as it comes into effect. Concerns have existed for some time that the business jet fleet and inventory for sale is growing older. With ADS-B predicted to force a rise in fleet retirements of older aircraft, could these have a meaningful impact on the fleet size in the US, and specifically on the lower end of the pre-owned aircraft market? “Sure, we are seeing a few of the older aircraft electing not to comply, but I don’t think it’s going to be a meaningful impact,” Thomas projects. “I believe many of those jets already had other expensive issues such as engine overhauls, avionics upgrades, cosmetics (paint and interior), major inspections, etc. that contributed to their demise.” ❙ More information from www.eagle-aviation.com

Buying a Jet? Understanding the Advert Abbreviations (Part 3) In this series, Ken Elliott delves into the complexities of the terms used by aircraft brokerages in advertisements to distinguish their inventory from other aircraft on the market. The series

concludes with a focus on aircraft status and configuration… s highlighted in Table A, there are several areas of interest for an aircraft transaction, focused on the aircraft type and model chosen. Having covered the previous areas depicted across the previous two articles, following we’ll address the last two items on the list, and assume ADS-B Out compliance.

Service Currency refers to the maintenance status of the aircraft either now or as it will be delivered to a new owner. An advert may include three separate statements re. maintenance status: •

Aircraft Status

For the purpose of this article, ‘Aircraft Status’ refers to the condition of the aircraft at the time of sale, regarding maintenance and appearance as well as its operating readiness. •

Pre-buy completed, referring to an inspection, readying the aircraft for sale. This should include a review of the aircraft records. It can be completed by the aircraft manufacturer or third party, and the purchaser can require a pre-buy inspection at a suitable facility by mutual agreement.

COMMENT The year of manufacture and delivery Could be all, partial or stripes only Could be one owner but managed by another Let the independent ‘logbook review’ be the judge of that! If accurate, implies less corrosion/wear and tear See it for yourself Base, registration history (and for how long) Wood/Leather/Re-rag/Carpet – what was done?

Note: The above list is not fully inclusive, but serves as an example only

2) Aircraft Condition (Paint stripes and refurbished interior 2018/Based & registered in US since new)

Aircraft condition includes surveying an aircraft from both an external and internal perspective. In fact, the aircraft service currency is also a reflection of its condition. Appearance is not everything, so that means checking the functionality of all that moves in the cabin, from doors to galley controls, and from lighting to passenger address. It may be a good idea, as a purchaser, to create your own checklist for the cabin. Look at all the pictures available and think of yourself sitting at each location. What would you want at that location and is it going to work as you expect? Think of seat location, movement, lighting, audio and video, external communication, internal communication, airflow, temperature control and master seat control of overall cabin functionality. And create a checklist for external paintwork, interior wood, carpet, leather, mirrors, galley, lavatory, sidewalls, ledges, seating and overhead (even include the condition of windows). Keep in mind existing physical and electronic company logos will need to change. Comments: Interior refurbishments are subjective. It all depends on how the aircraft was used. If it was owned and operated by one individual/company, that is very different to being previously operated fractionally, or by a Part 135 charter company, when it comes to the anticipated condition of the interior. It can help to consider living with the aircraft over several years with respect to its design and color scheme. Be especially sensitive to others important to you, and how they may react to the appearance of the aircraft. If anything needs changing it will be costly once you have the aircraft in your service. Finally, even though a thorough Pre-Buy Inspection may have been completed, it’s wise to have an independent expert on the particular

54  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

model/year of manufacture give it the once over (including the all-important cockpit).

3) Operating (Maintained & Operated Part 135/EASA & EU-Ops 1)

Our example aircraft has been managed under FAA Part 135. For aircraft certificated under Part 25, being over 12,500lbs they may be operated under Part 91 or Part 135 rules (unless operated under a special category). Part 91 refers to non-commercial rules that are less stringent and leave much decision-making to the pilot in-command. On the other hand, Part 135 refers to commercial operations, where the aircraft is utilized for compensation or hire and implies greater stringency in maintenance and operating requirements (i.e. training). Internationally, airworthiness authorities mirror US rules to a large extent, with local variations. The statement ‘EASA and EU-Ops 1’ in our example advert pertains to the aircraft having been operated in Europe. It’s common to see this statement (or similar versions of it). It’s vital to first know where you intend to operate and second, find out exactly what the operating requirements are for each region in which you intend to fly. Moreover, know your Oceanic requirements. And remember, registering an aircraft in a country is very different to flying in and out of there. Comments: Look out for unique operating capabilities of some business jet models. These include the ability to fly ‘Steep Approaches’ (i.e. flying into London City Airport) and ‘High Altitude Landing and Take-offs’ (operating at several airports in China, Peru, Nepal and Northern India). Look out for upcoming aircraft tracking and recording requirements. These may call for the addition of equipment such as Quick Access Recorders (QAR) or Space-Based ADS-B (or equivalent).

Head of State). Also for Large Jets there may be a comment such as ‘PATS Aux Fuel Tanks’, referring to the aircraft having additional fuel tanks for extended range (in this case, installed by PATS, the completion center). And inclusion of a shower is often a key selling point for Large Jets.

In Summary While far from conclusive, the implied message of this series to prospective buyers is to do the following:

For this article, Configuration refers mostly to how the aircraft’s interior is configured. Often overlooked, configuration of seat location and how the specific serial number of aircraft is certified for its seating can make all the difference. Example: 14 Pax Config/Belt Lav/Crew Rest/Fwd Galley

Even aircraft of the same model can have different seat configurations and will be certified for how they’re configured. Seats are either grouped (club), forward or aft facing, or in the form of divans. If you see 8+1 Pax (for example), this refers to eight passengers and one cabin crew. Although ‘Crew Rest’ refers to a private space for the cabin-crew member, a jump seat is not considered an additional crew seat but temporary and is only intended for short flights or crew/cockpit monitoring work. Aircraft may have one or even two lavatories and a galley, located either forward or aft. A ‘Belt Lav’ refers to seat belt that may be required to operate. The vestibule is the aircraft entry area and a common location for Fwd Galley/Crew Rest and Lavatory. Comments: Do not forget baggage and accessibility in considering configuration. Baggage is not just about available space but how that relates to the aircraft’s weight & balance. The aircraft has a weight limit and how the weight is distributed impacts its aerodynamic capability. For very large aircraft, look out for the ‘VVIP’ statement that refers to the aircraft being previously used for a very important VIP (usually 56  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Understand each and every term/abbreviation in the advertisement/associated promotional material. • Do due diligence in ensuring that the aircraft satisfies your operating requirements in every possible way. Operating includes maintenance, hangarage, the cost of not flying, training, logistics support and more. • An aircraft’s history tells a deep story. Know that story. An aircraft is not as simple as an automobile, or as grand as a cruise liner. It’s complex in so many ways. Anything missing from the story is a red flag. Always consult and research before you buy. To make adjustments later will take more time and money, as well as lost utilization. Brokers exist for a reason.

Three Common Mistakes About the Letter of Intent There’s a fine balance to getting your Letter of Intent right when buying a business aircraft. Aircraft broker Jet Tolbert highlights three common mistakes to avoid if buyers want their offers to be taken seriously…

f you’ve been planning to buy an aircraft, seen the right match for your mission need, and are ready to begin the transaction process, you’ll need to prepare a Letter of Intent (LOI). Typing out a brief letter to the seller before signing the contract and flying your new purchase home sounds straightforward enough, but very little in the aircraft acquisition process is ever quite as simple as it sounds. There are a few issues that can easily frustrate the process if you don’t understand them fully. Following are three common buyer assumptions and mistakes about the LOI that have caused problems and unnecessary headaches in aircraft transactions in the past.

I

MISTAKE 1: The Letter of Intent can be used to gauge a seller’s interest and price…

It can be tempting for buyers to test the seller through the LOI, but this approach can have some adverse effects. Firstly, a ‘flakey’ approach to offers and LOIs can frustrate sellers in the market, and you could quickly gain a reputation as being a ‘nonserious’ buyer, which could ultimately cause you to miss out on the ideal aircraft. Second, you may sign and commit to a deal that you must follow through at greater expense (time and capital) than you anticipated. Worse, you could eventually realize that you’re overpaying for the aircraft, or have chosen the wrong one altogether. These costly mistakes can be avoided by recognizing the insights and knowledge of a well

established broker, who's experience of transaction psychology, accounting, mechanics and piloting needs will far outweigh any gained through misusing the LOI. By hiring the right professional, you’ll gain a better understanding of aircraft for sale, and better perspectives of the wider market. The right broker will also highlight the value points that really matter as you make your offer.

MISTAKE 2: Agree the Letter of Intent and sort out the rest later…

Unless you have the operational and financing aspects of your acquisition lined up, you should not submit an LOI. Similarly, if you’re selling an existing aircraft, wait until you have a deal lined up for that before you submit your Letter of Intent for the one you’re buying. Letters of Intent that are written with a view to sorting financing, or an existing aircraft sale later tend to fall apart later. Other that incurring needless expense (for buyer and seller), the buyer’s reputation within the selling community will be tarnished. In this scenario, future offers from the buyer tend to be downgraded by sellers.

MISTAKE 3: Perfect the Letter of Intent before paying a deposit and signing the contract…

Ultimately, sellers want to see money in escrow and a signed contract. The LOI is usually a ‘placeholder’ and contains language that it is still subject to the final contract. While buyers need to be clear enough for the 62  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

seller to understand exactly how they want to proceed, they don’t need to get so entrenched in the process that the logistical questions that come into play give the seller a headache. There is a fine line to getting the right balance with your LOI. There are ways to assure the seller that you have all your ducks in a row without entering into a protracted negotiation about the minutiae. And when a seller responds to a LOI, a quick mark-up or response indicating what would be acceptable in general terms is a great way to begin. Most importantly, get the refundable deposit into escrow and start moving towards the contract.

Closing Thought…

Nearly all aircraft sales will see the LOI leading up to final contract. Get it right, and you set yourself up on the road to success. However, you should start working with your broker long before reaching that stage. ❙ More information from www.americanaircraftsales.com

Tips for Negotiating a Good Aircraft Transaction

y very first job was in door-to-door sales, enabling me to earn money for flying lessons. During that time, I discovered the complexities of a sale. Buyer and seller each have different expectations and need to find the common ground that delivers a deal both can feel good about. It became quickly clear that transparency and disclosure are landmarks of a successful business transaction. Delivering quality and value for a fair price builds relationship, generates repeat clients, and creates new business opportunities. What I learned then is true today in the world of aircraft transactions. Anything related to private aviation requires large sums of capital. However, price should never be the sole indicator of a good deal. The careful selection, negotiation and purchase of a new or pre-owned aircraft will set the standard for a great ownership experience. And a crucial component of any successful transaction is a well-managed pre-buy inspection.

M

Begin With the Logbooks

The pre-buy inspection is at the buyer’s expense, so before taking the airplane to your chosen inspection shop, review the logbooks and records. These will give insight into how the aircraft has been maintained, and by whom. It will identify issues that could either be a deal breaker or must be corrected before you proceed to invest in the pre-buy inspection. During a past transaction, I found that several years of record keeping for an FAA-registered aircraft had been documented in a foreign language. Although I had no doubt that all the necessary maintenance had been performed correctly, the records needed to be translated to English (at the seller’s expense) before we could proceed with the transaction.

Hire the Right Expertise

What are the best strategies for negotiating a business aircraft transaction that all parties can feel good about? How should buyers interact with sellers when it comes to final negotiations and closing? Andre Fodor, Aviation Director, Johnsonville shares his thoughts…

www.AVBUYER.com

The importance of having qualified people supporting you cannot be overstated. For example, an experienced broker will help analyze projected operational costs, upcoming maintenance events, future overhauls and required upgrades that will affect the purchase price and residual value of the aircraft. An experienced mechanic with intimate knowledge of the airframe, meanwhile, will know the critical items to inspect and prevent unexpected and unpleasant surprises.

Establish the Acceptable Expenses

Once you have a solid team around you, what should your expectation be as your aircraft enters the pre-buy inspection? What are acceptable expenses to the seller and/or buyer? The answer can vary... Not long ago, I managed the sale of a fairly new preowned Large Jet. It only had 800 hours on the clock and was less than five years old. Naturally, I expected a clean bill of health from the pre-buy inspection. It was a surprise to all of us when the inspector found a manufacturing defect in the inside of the engine’s cowling. The OEM was required to fix a bad rib installation that had AVBUYER MAGAZINE  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020

never previously been identified, since the airplane was too new to have had its cowlings removed for maintenance or inspection. While in this case the OEM would clearly be paying for the repair, the transaction stalled for three weeks; the pre-purchase inspection costs increased due to aircraft storage costs; and the airplane was grounded until the problem could be remedied. Mutual cooperation kept the deal together, ultimately. Things are often not so clear-cut. In the case of another aircraft undergoing a pre-buy inspection, a long discrepancy report resulted. After reading the report, the buyer in their haste to complete the transaction directed the repair facility to correct all discrepancies without sharing the report with the seller or obtaining permission to repair the items. The buyer neither understood the pre-buy processes nor the language on the Letter of Intent (LOI), and their action yielded a $120k repair bill. The seller refused to pay since repairs had not been approved. Moreover, most of the items didn’t affect airworthiness. The buyer responded by walking away from the deal. The result was a lien against the aircraft, placed by the maintenance facility, and several years of messy litigation between seller, buyer and service shop. Beware! A discrepancy list must be shared, and agreed, with the seller. Only the selling party may approve charges related to the aircraft’s repair. Your expectation of what must be repaired in a discrepancy list may not be the same as the seller’s. The pre-buy inspection report will list every discrepancy found, not just the ‘must do’ items. Minor paint touch-up items (for example) will be 66  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

listed individually and, consequently, discrepancy lists can appear lengthy. Begin by clearing the list of the easy items. Light bulbs, cabin upholstery stains, veneer scratches and paint touch-ups are all low-cost items that, once removed, can shorten a long discrepancy list significantly. This process will help leaving only the bigger items to be discussed during the final contract negotiation. Once you have the final inspection report, it’s time to review and negotiate. Keep in mind that the pre-buy inspection could find issues that wouldn’t normally be identified during scheduled maintenance, so the seller may be surprised by some of the findings. The LOI should provide the framework for negotiating discrepancies along with an exit strategy if an abnormal issue arises.

Renegotiating Contracts When Necessary

Where necessary, renegotiating a contract to accommodate unexpected findings is fairly common and can benefit both parties. It may result in a reduction to the purchase price; require repairs to be made before the deal closes; or a mix and match of both. It’s important to be fair, transparent and share your concerns openly. Good will is an important part of this process. Finding common ground between buyer’s and seller’s expectations is the ultimate goal. Everyone wants a good deal. A successful transaction provides both parties with that satisfaction. This will yield intangible benefits to the buyer relating to the overall ownership experience and will surely be money in the bank. ❙ www.AVBUYER.com

How to Match a Helicopter to Mission Need

What are some of the basics buyers should consider when narrowing down the choices for the best helicopter to fulfil their mission need? Dave Higdon provides some thoughts… s with fixed-wing aircraft, all helicopters deliver some common capabilities. However, it's the traits that are distinct to rotorcraft that make them unique tools: The ability to launch and land vertically, to hover, rotate around the axis of the rotor, and use landing spaces barely larger than the length of the fuselage. Just as with fixed-wing conveyances, however, within the rotorcraft sector you can find models designed around specific mission profiles and specialized to certain mission capabilities, meaning that prospective buyers need to have a firm grasp of the types of rotorcraft that fit their need. A log-haul utility ship is no more suited for executive transport than one designed for

helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) serving as a Part 135 charter aircraft. Although all helicopters can perform some of those missions (at a pinch), there are other, more tailored helicopters that are likely to serve those roles better. So how does one make the most of matching a helicopter to mission need? Read on… Among the most-useful helicopters found in the fleet are the utility-category ships. Utility helicopters are multi-purpose ships that can perform a variety of different missions. A common trait of most utility helicopters is their ability to carry passengers, lift external loads, and adapt to a variety of roles as diverse as observance of highway traffic and law enforcement. The utility helicopter may also be capable of

“One helicopter may be just as suitable for law enforcement as for medical service or executive transport...” performing light firefighting roles, medical airlift services, and more. An excellent example of a highly specialized utility helicopter comes from Sikorsky in the form of its CH-54 Tarhe, an American twin-engine heavylift helicopter designed for the US Army. The civilian version is nicknamed the ‘SkyCrane’. Sikorsky SkyCranes made the news in Australia for their use as firefighting ships against the recent onslaught of wildfires. They proved ideal with their ability to lift a firefighting load without landing and dropping it with accuracy in the turbulent, tossed air that accompanies wildfires. While the SkyCrane is immense, excelling at lifting heavy, odd-shaped loads, it is not what an operator wants or needs to service the HEMS field.

It's What's Inside That Counts

What makes a helicopter ideal for HEMS comes largely down to how the operator chooses to finish its interior. Some helicopter models adapt more readily, thanks to distinct features such as clamshell access doors or side doors capable of accepting an ambulance gurney and the doctors, nurses and emergency medical technicians tending the patients. The same helicopter that regularly flies HEMS missions may perform equally well as an executive transport, but not with the HEMS interior. 70  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Ultimately, with multiple interior options available for many helicopters, it's what's inside that counts in matching machine and mission. One helicopter may be just as suitable for law enforcement as for medical service or executive transport, depending on the interior finish and attached equipment. Other missions may include electronic news-gathering or back-country tours, mountain-top logging or firefighting. Essentially, for operators considering a helicopter, the first step should be to define and outline a mission profile, then to line up the models that can perform it, and come equipped with a suitable interior. That interior must be spec'd first to define operating weights and operational limitations within the helicopter's performance capabilities (as outlined in its type certificate). What number of seats is needed? What’s the required range for the typical mission? What speed is needed? And is a given model of helicopter for sale already approved with any specialized equipment that’s installed? A helicopter destined for traffic patrol, delivering live reports needs the weight-lifting capability, space and stability to perform an information-gathering role. Operators may logically decide to eschew instrument-flying capabilities – but retain imaging hardware and an enhanced

“...a helicopter must be able to fit into the landing sites it is intended to use.” vision system (EVS) to improve situational awareness during night ops. A helicopter such as the Sikorsky S-92 may earn its stripes flying in military roles, but with the correct interior serve as an executive aircraft on par with the industry's best-selling business aircraft. That includes allowing the multitude of homeoffice capabilities, including internet and email access. Meanwhile, the Robinson R66 can deliver lift and travel, and its smaller size and load limits make it an economical machine for owner/pilot travel.

What are the Operational Considerations?

Beyond matching interior to mission, a helicopter must be able to fit into the landing sites it is intended to use. And the noise levels of the aircraft are becoming more of an issue in a growing number of locations. The wise operator will seek a helicopter with a noise footprint in line with any limitations in its operating environment. Seating capacity, speed, range, payload capability and luggage capacity are all details to weigh when shopping for a helicopter for business use. With all things considered, is a helicopter the best fit for the mission, or would a fixed-wing aircraft be a better fit for routine 350nm trips? 72  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Much will come down, once more, to the locations that the aircraft needs to regularly access.

Specialization has its Limits

Helicopters stand among aviation's mostspecialized machines, capable of making good time across short-range trips (up to 300 miles), and they are unparalleled for operating in challenging environs. But while all helicopters can hover, not all are suited for all missions requiring hovering flight. So just as it is with selecting a fixed-wing business aircraft for a company's needs, precisely defining the missions the helicopter will be expected to fly, and selecting the best candidate to fulfill those needs, is the key to having the most satisfactory ownership experience. ❙

What Does it Cost to Operate an Ultra-Long-Range Jet?

What does it cost to own and operate a business aircraft? Working through the different categories, David Wyndham outlines some of the common characteristics and associated costs in Ultra-Long-Range Jet ownership… here’s no single industry definition for the various business jet categories. Conklin & de Decker considers the cabin size and range. For an Ultra-Long-Range Jet, this means we’ll be discussing aircraft that typically seat 12 or more passengers, have a flat cabin floor, offer galley space for preparing one or more complete hot meals, and provide a generously equipped lavatory area. Cabin height should allow for most people to stand straight (i.e., approximately 188cm), and range should allow for at least 5,000nm, non-stop.

T

Aircraft falling within this category include: • • • • •

Bombardier Global Express XRS/6000/7500; Dassault Falcon 7X, 8X and future 6X; Gulfstream G550, G650 and G500 series; Airbus ACJ (with long-range fuel tanks); and Boeing BBJ (with long-range fuel tanks).

74  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

How Much Does it Cost to Buy an UltraLong-Range Jet?

Acquisition costs for new Ultra-Long-Range business jets run anywhere from $50m to $72m list price, while the (Airbus and Boeing) VIP airliners can exceed $100m+ for the largest variants featuring opulent interiors that include showers and staterooms. Pre-owned prices vary significantly, given that many of these models have been in production for several years. For guidance, a first generation 15- to 20-year-old Ultra-Long-Range Jet can be purchased for $8-10m, while the more recent variants cost ~$40m. Placing a pre-owned aircraft into service is likely to require additional funds. A buyer may elect to spend approximately $2m+ on upgrades, paint and moderate interior refurbishment. Major maintenance checks may be due soon and must be budgeted for at the time of purchase. If the www.AVBUYER.com

engines are close to overhaul and not on a guaranteed hourly maintenance plan, at least an additional $1m per engine should be budgeted for the overhaul.

What’s the Operating Cost of an Ultra-LongRange Jet?

Operating costs for Ultra-Long-Range Jets depends on the aircraft’s size and age. Following are some approximate averages from the Conklin & de Decker Report to help provide some guidance: Average variable cost per hour: Fuel*: Maintenance: Parts, Labor, Major Maintenance Reserves & Engine Reserves:

$4,800 $2,400 $1,400 $1,000

*Fuel cost depends on fuel price per gallon and fuel burn.

What are the Data Costs of an Ultra-LongRange Jet?

Another variable cost to budget for is Wi-Fi or airborne internet. Ultra-Long-Range Jets fly globally, so maintaining internet connectivity will require a satellite-based system. www.AVBUYER.com

There are different installation and rate plan options designed to fit the needs of both the passengers and pilots. New installations for a satellite system can run anywhere from $650k to $800k. Monthly rates based on data used and download speeds can start at $50k per month for moderate use. An approximate data estimate is $2k to download a movie in HD or $4k to stream a live sporting event.

What are the Fixed Costs of Ultra-LongRange Jet Ownership?

Fixed costs of Ultra-Long-Range Jet ownership are typically in the region of $2.5m per year, and include: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5)

Salaries Training Hangar Insurance Refurbishment

1) Salaries: The pay for two pilots ranges from $200k to $300k per pilot, depending on job duties and level of experience. For Ultra-Long-Range Jets, a third pilot is often hired to maintain the flight schedule since, given the long range of these aircraft, flights may extend to 14-hours.

“The operating budget for 400 annual hours in an Ultra-Long-Range business jet will be approximately $5m per year...” A trained flight attendant is also a pre-requisite with an average full-time salary in the region of $130k annually. It’s also wise to employ an aircraft maintenance engineer or maintenance technician at $80k+ per year to take care of much of the routine maintenance, handling maintenance planning and control. And if the schedule is complex with frequent changes and multiple individuals who can authorize use of the aircraft, a flight scheduler is recommended as well as an administrative person. Their salaries are usually in the region of $60k per year. In summary, with three pilots, one flight attendant and one maintenance engineer, the annual cost for salaries, benefits and training will likely exceed $1.5m for Ultra-Long-Range Jet ownership. 2) Training: Pilots will need training at least annually, which can cost between $100k and $125k for two crewmembers. 3) Hangar: For hangar rental, Ultra-Long-Range Jet operators should plan on an annual fee between $100k and $120k (for a typical metropolitan area). High cost areas such as New York City, Hong Kong or Geneva, will be significantly higher.

4) Insurance: It can cost $60k to $80k annually to insure an Ultra-Long-Range Jet, depending on the aircraft’s value and liability limits. If the aircraft spends a lot of time outside of developed countries, those costs may increase substantially. 5) Refurbishment: Paint and interior refurbishment should also be considered. Depending on the level of completion, materials and extra features, you should budget approximately $2-3m for this work on your Ultra-Long-Range Jet. A new interior and paint job may last seven to nine years with excellent care. Additional costs that can be incurred include acquiring aircraft technical publications for the flight crew and additional maintenance, office and travel expenses.

In Summary

The operating budget for 400 annual hours in an Ultra-Long-Range business jet will be approximately $5m per year, excluding the costs of capital, taxes and depreciation. Next time we’ll consider the question of what it costs to operate a Medium Jet. Stay tuned…! More information from www.conklindd.com T

How to Choose the Right Aircraft Finance Lender What do business aircraft buyers seeking financing need to ask when searching for the right lender? Rohit Jaggi interviews those in the know for some key tips and pointers…

rave is the aircraft buyer who goes with the first offer of financing that he or she can find. Brave or foolhardy. It’s worth remembering that the borrower and the lender, while they both might want a transaction to work, are not actually on the same team. The borrower wants cheap funds. The lender wants to make a loan with the best return. The two sides can agree on some things, i.e. that neither want a loan so unfavourable and costly that the buyer defaults (the world of pain that comes from a failed loan is good for nobody). But short of that, the field is open. Leading aviation lawyer Paul Jebely points out that all lenders are not equal. “Business aircraft financiers look in varying degrees to credit risk, and to asset value and asset preservation – including factors such as jurisdictional and repossession risk,” says Hong Kong-based Jebely (who leads the private wealth and asset finances practices of Pillsbury Winthrop). The important thing is to choose a lender that is the best match for your individual requirements – not just the first one to agree to lend you the money. That means first working out exactly how much of

B

your own cash you want to put down; what aircraft you are looking to buy; what you want to use it for; where you will base it; and how you will maintain it. Only then can you work out who the right lender is. Brendan Lodge, UK-based aircraft acquisitions specialist with Jet Support Services Inc, notes, “The lenders have become incredibly faddy in terms of the niches where they want to lend. At the point where liquidity became restricted, the banks became fussier: They were able to lend all the money they could get their hands on, then they became less willing to do the donkey work.”

Where to Begin Your Search for Aircraft Finance

Jebely says a good starting point is a bank you have an existing relationship with. But he adds that the search shouldn’t stop there. Even if you have the money to pay cash for the business aircraft you want, it may make more sense to finance the aircraft and put the money to use where it will earn a better return. That is especially relevant now, when interest rates are “bumping along the bottom”. If you’re in the happy position of not needing to www.AVBUYER.com

borrow, but still want a loan, the options are likely to be much wider. Nevertheless, you should look at other conditions. Some lenders (who may be after your funds much more than wanting to lend to you) could require as much money as the loan to be deposited with them, possibly obviating the reason for taking a loan in the first place. The size of the loan will also steer you towards, or away from, specific lenders. And you should ask yourself how much transparency and disclosure you’re comfortable with. A complicated trail of ownership will rule out some lenders. “Line of sight to the ultimate beneficial owner, and transparency around the identities and source of wealth of all obligors, is absolutely critical,” says Gary Crichlow, director of London-based finance brokerage and advisory firm Arc & Co. “Clients with ties to certain jurisdictions – nationality, residence, assets – can be more challenging, but financiers are a global community, and appetite varies.”

How and Where Will the Aircraft be Used/Based?

The planned use of the aircraft is also key. Some lenders are more comfortable about the regulatory www.AVBUYER.com

environment for only partly chartered aircraft, for example. It’s important to find a lender that understands what you want to do with the airplane. And the use of the machine may determine where it’s based, and on which register it’s placed. But, again, make sure your lender understands the specific rules of the Lithuanian register (for example) or the Isle of Man register. Any lender who knows what they are doing should be able to work out for themselves that lenders, borrowers and aircraft need to be a good fit in this respect. But it is more important to you, so don’t scrimp on that research. “All of the domestic lenders are comfortable with the IoM register,” notes Lodge. “The issue with less well-known registers is that the bank may not have any experience of that register. In order to structure a loan or a mortgage it may first have to seek legal advice, taking time and money. So it makes sense to research which lenders are already comfortable with that register.” Aoife O’Sullivan, partner with The Air Law Firm, says the main consideration is flexibility to choose the regulatory regime that best fits the intended use and operation of the aircraft.

“For example, aircraft flown commercially or on charter must be placed on the same register (with some exceptions) as the aviation authority of the chosen operator or AOC holder,” she outlines. “Aircraft flown privately are not as restricted in choice.” “Small deals can work particularly well when the client, the aircraft and the financier are all based and registered in the same jurisdiction,” Crichlow highlights. “The ultimate beneficial owner's identity and finances are straightforward, and the financier has a standard suite of contractual documents that the client is happy to sign up to with a minimum of negotiation.” Jurisdiction is also important for lenders to make sure they can collect on their loan if it all goes wrong. Your reasons for choosing the jurisdiction probably won’t include the lender’s ease or difficulty in reclaiming their security – but where the deal is based will be a factor in who you can approach for a loan.

How Will the Aircraft be Maintained?

Maintenance is another issue – some lenders want all-singing, totally comprehensive service

contracts that could be financial overkill for your intended use of the aircraft. That’s another good question to ask before going far down the road with any particular lender. As Crichlow says, “A low-rate financing offer that demands a high-cost operation may not always be the optimal overall deal.”

Help is at Hand…

All these factors add up to the need to do a lot of homework on how you want the loan to look, and who would fit your bill to provide it. But there is help at hand: Lodge points out that a good broker is worth his or her weight in aircraftgrade titanium here. “If you can find a broker who knows which bank to go to for the particular type of borrower you are, and can then polish the proposal so that the bank doesn’t have to do much work,” he concludes, “that is the best way of improving your chance of getting the right kind of loan, with the right kind of structure, from the right lender.” It may not be your first choice, or even your first offer – but this way there’s at least a chance that everyone can win.

Bombardier Challenger 350

An important area for potential operators to focus on is payload capability, and especially ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’. Table A (left) shows the Embraer Praetor 600’s Available Payload with Maximum Fuel to be 2,194lbs., which is greater than the 1,905lbs. offered by the Bombardier Challenger 350.

Cabin Cross-Section Comparison

Chart A (left) depicts the cabin crosssections of the Praetor 600 and Challenger 350. As shown, the two business jets share the same cabin height (6ft) but the Praetor 600 has less cabin width (6.8ft) than the Challenger 350 (7.2ft). The Challenger 350 also has a greater cabin length (25.2ft) than the Praetor 600 (24.1ft). Overall, Bombardier’s Challenger 350 provides more cabin volume (1,024cu.ft.) compared to Praetor 600 (840cu.ft.). In terms of baggage room, while the Praetor 500 provides less than half the internal luggage volume of the Challenger 350 (45cu.ft. versus 106cu.ft.), according to Conklin & de Decker the Praetor 600 has 110cu.ft. external baggage space while the Challenger 350 offers none.

As depicted in Chart B (left), using Melbourne, Florida as the start point the Praetor 600 offers greater range coverage (4,018nm) than the Challenger 350 at 3,250nm, both with four passengers and available fuel. Note: For business jets, ‘Four Pax Range’ represents the maximum IFR range of the aircraft at long range cruise. NBAA IFR fuel reserve calculation is for a 200nm alternate. This range does not include winds aloft or any other weather-related obstacles.

Powerplant Details

Two HTF7500E engines power the Praetor 600, each providing 7,528lbst while burning 258 gallons per hour (GPH). By comparison, the Challenger 350 is powered by a pair of HTF7350 engines, each offering 7,323lbst and burning 255 gallons per hour (GPH).

86  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are often depreciable for income tax purposes under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Under MACRS, taxpayers can 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), 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 is 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

AVBUYER.com

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 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 by 20% to depreciate qualified business jets until December 31, 2026. Table D (right) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019-model Praetor 600 in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and sevenyear periods. Table E (right) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019-model Bombardier Challenger 350 in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods.

As mentioned, in December 2019, no Praetor 600 business jets were available on the used aircraft market. By comparison, 13 Challenger 350s were for sale with six showing asking prices that ranged from $13.75m to $17.7m. The other seven invited offers/inquiries. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe Total Time (AFTT) and age/condition of an aircraft will cause great variation in the price of a specific aircraft – even between two aircraft from the same year of manufacture. 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 (overleaf) are centered on the Embraer Praetor 600 and Bombardier Challenger 350. 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;

PRAETOR 600 CABIN CONCEPT

In Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business jet operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance and time-to-climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them. Ultimately, there is plenty for a prospective buyer to consider when deciding which aircraft, and which performance criteria, is better suited to them. The Praetor 600 is new to the market and offers best-in-class range and lower hourly operating costs compared to its competitors. T

3. The 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. As of December 2019, a new Praetor 600 was purchased at a higher price ($20.995m) than a new Challenger 350 ($20m). However, the Praetor 600 exhibits lower hourly variable operating costs with significantly more range and a higher Available Payload with Full Fuel. Nevertheless, the Challenger 350 offers a greater cabin volume, and a higher cruise speed (459kts vs 433kts).

VALUES - MEDIUM JETS

AVBUYER.com

Business Aircraft Values: Medium Jets Of all the business jet

categories, none does more to balance

capability with utility

than the Medium Jet segment; and no

segment provides

more options, either. or the purpose of our Retail Price Guide, Medium Jets are loosely defined as aircraft with a Maximum Take-Off Weight between 20,001-40,000 lbs. There’s no disputing the advantages of space as you step into a Medium Jet cabin, particularly when applied to longer trips. That is ultimately where the Medium Jets’ basic advantage comes into play over the Light Jet segment. Medium Jets tend to cruise towards the upperend of the private jet speed range (between Mach 0.78 and Mach 0.85). While on average faster than the Light Jet, a Medium Jet’s superior speed generally provides only a few minutes of gain on the typical Business Aviation trip of 350 to 500 miles, but the difference will become noticeable on longer legs exceeding 1,000 miles. In terms of range, the average Medium Jet can reach most of the US non-stop from almost anywhere else within the US, making them excellent candidates for the operator with regular transcontinental travel needs. That range capability also gives the crew the flexibility to string together a sequence of stops that total the same distance – making it possible for a Medium Jet to cover multiple locations and still get home at the days’ end, without buying fuel along the way. Runway requirements for Medium Jets are generally longer than the average length needed by a Light Jet – but nevertheless Medium Jets can still access a significant percentage of the secondary airports serving most of the 150 largest metropolitan areas in the US.

F

Indeed, Medium Jets generally can match their Large Cabin kin in terms of speed and, to a point, their range, while providing reasonable office amenities that are competitive with most larger aircraft. With all of the above considered, it is little wonder that the Medium Jet segment is the biggest selling, deepest segment across the business aircraft market.

Medium Cabin Jet Price Guide

The following Medium jets’ Average Retail Price Guide represents current values published in the Aircraft Bluebook–Price Digest. The study spans model years from 2000 through Winter 2019. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Gulfstream G280 values reported in the Winter 2019 edition of the Bluebook show $12.0m for a 2013 model, $11.0m for a 2012 model and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. With the reader’s knowledge of aircraft, equipment, range and performance, the following Guide allows the reader to determine the best value aircraft for consideration. Note: We have included 29 aircraft models in the following Medium Jets average price guide, and for additional assistance, Conklin & de Decker’s Performance and Specifications data for these models can be referred to, beginning on page 94.

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 - Medium Jets – appears opposite, to be followed by Light 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.

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.

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.

Mario Pierobon is a safety management consultant and content producer. He currently is working on a research project investigating aircraft ground handling safety. Contact him via mariopierobon@az-all-in-one.com

What are ICAO’s regulations about aircraft tracking systems, what should trans-oceanic business jet operators take note of, and what solutions are available on today’s market? Mario Pierobon speaks with a selection of experts from the industry… n recent years, tracking systems have been mandated for larger aircraft. Currently the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandate applies to all aircraft categories defined in the Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) concept of operations (i.e., those with an MTOW >27 tons or more than 19 passenger seats). There are, in fact, two mandates that fall under GADSS:

I

• •

For normal aircraft tracking, requiring 15-minute position updates at all times. For autonomous distress tracking (ADT), requiring one-minute position updates when the aircraft is in distress.

“The latter is nominally targeted for 1st January 2021 but is expected for 2023”, clarifies Mark Duell, vice president, FlightAware. “For Business Aviation, the mandates only apply to those doing charter operations, not those flying in-house for a company, individual or family. “Although there is no mandate for noncharter operators to have aircraft tracking, we strongly recommend it across the board.”

Aircraft Tracking: What Does ICAO Recommend?

For Business Aviation ICAO recommends application of the GADSS requirements too. This is not mandatory, however. “It is the responsibility of the local authorities to request the full application of GADSS for business aircraft operations”, notes Christian Belleux, aviation product line director at Orolia. “As far as equipment goes, a modification of the avionics suite is required for aircraft tracking – for example, adding the autonomous distress tracking (ADT) function which is an algorithm, as www.AVBUYER.com

well as a new generation of emergency locator transmitters (ELT-DT), transmitting the position of the aircraft in distress during the last phase of the flight.” Currently, other than ADS-B in the US and FANS-1A in the North Atlantic Track System (NATS), there are no mandates for aircraft tracking systems for business aircraft. “Aircraft position is currently being tracked over land through ADS-B Out on aircraft equipped with this technology,” Steve Elofson, senior avionics sales, Duncan Aviation, says. “ADS-B is currently mandated in the US and is soon to be mandated in Europe and other areas of the world. Aircraft tracking over oceanic areas is currently available through FANS-1A satellite data link systems. “FANS-1A capability is currently required for business aircraft operating in the NATS,” he continues. “It’s likely that in the future aircraft tracking systems for business aircraft will be encouraged through operational benefits such as preferred routing in other remote oceanic areas of the world.” Tracking systems have been available and widely used for many years by some commercial aircraft. “The requirements for their use were previously determined not by the aircraft type but by the airspace which it’s travelling through,” says Joseph Teixeira, vice president, Aviation Safety and Cybersecurity at Inmarsat. “Technologies (such as Inmarsat’s SB-S) enable real-time data streaming from the aircraft and will meet all future requirements for abnormal and distress tracking, in addition to many other capabilities for commercial and business jet operators. “For General Aviation aircraft, other location tracking technologies are widely used, such as ELTs,” he adds.

Aircraft Tracking: What are the Equipment Solutions

The Business Aviation industry experienced issues responding to the US ADS-B mandate, partly because not all of the available technology was STC’d for retrofit until very late – particularly solutions for older airframes. It’s natural to wonder whether there’s a danger of this happening for aircraft tracking too, should the current mandates become applicable to Business Aviation. “If hard mandates for aircraft tracking systems other than ADS-B for business aircraft are imposed by regulatory authorities in the future, slow response to equip is likely to become an issue,” Elofson predicts. “It is more likely that ADS-B will satisfy requirements for tracking for aircraft traveling over land. “Business aircraft traveling oceanic routes are typically larger, newer and better-equipped. Solutions for FANS-1A or other satellite-based tracking should be available via STC or Service Bulletin modifications for these aircraft through the OEMs and service/modification facilities.” The NATS mandate extended to the existing fleet, and compliance was largely met through existing equipment (Satcom or ADS-B), or via

A

readily available upgrades. In contrast, “The ADT mandate only applies to new-build aircraft so there’s no mandatory retrofit requirement,” Duell notes. If it becomes mandatory for business aircraft with MTOW lower than 27 tons, or with less than 19 passenger seats, this requirement will be mandatory for aircraft delivered after the applicability date of the mandate, as currently proposed by ICAO. “If there’s an STC, it might cover the upgrade of the avionics suite (new function) and new ELT equipment able to comply with these functions,” Belleux suggests. “It’s possible that the heaviest business jets will fall under this regulation, mostly because of the transoceanic capacity and range of aircraft with MTOW higher than 27 tons. This might be requested by insurance as well as it would become easier to find and define the trajectory of the aircraft.” New aircraft should deliver from the factories with any required aircraft tracking systems installed by the time the aircraft tracking requirements become applicable. “New design aircraft are likely to meet the ADT mandate with an upgraded or additional ELT that incorporates the distress tracking detection and transmission requirements, known as an ELT-DT,” affirms Duell.

“Business aircraft traveling oceanic routes are typically larger, newer and better-equipped.”

Belleux believes that eventually it will be a choice made by every aircraft manufacturer. “Some may request the function to be embedded into the avionics suite (algorithm), others may add a new box to receive the necessary data from the aircraft probes and computers to define the aircraft status (emergency or not), and fulfil the function.” Many business jets are as well-equipped as commercial aircraft with the latest location tracking technology today. “The requirements for aircraft location tracking are mandated by the airspace,” says Teixeira. “For example, in 2019, the FAA selected ADS-C, supported by Inmarsat’s Classic Aero and SB-S services, as its technology of choice for aircraft surveillance in the region. “The technology will be used to reduce separation distances between aircraft in the US airspace as part of its commitment to implement new international standards by 2022.”

Aircraft Tracking: What are the Investment Considerations?

A FANS-1A upgrade to a modern transoceanic business aircraft can range between $250,000 to $500,000 depending on systems currently installed. The cost of upgrading aircraft to tracking

requirements will depend on the architecture chosen by the aircraft manufacturers. “The price of the full shipset is difficult to estimate because all aircraft manufacturers have their own standard for interface,” says Belleux. The cost for retrofitting aircraft with location tracking technology will also depend on what regulations are implemented in the future, and whether the aircraft owner needs to upgrade their systems as a result. “There are several solutions already available on the market,” Texeira summarizes. “For location tracking alone, a new generation of Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) may suffice to pinpoint the aircraft location following an emergency or accident. “This technology is mature and is used across a variety of industries from aviation to maritime. However, new transmitters will likely be needed to meet more stringent aviation requirements. “Technologies such as Inmarsat’s SB-S can enable real-time data streaming from the aircraft including frequent location reporting. This technology is future proofing aircraft by providing a secure broadband connection between the aircraft and air traffic control.” ❙

TRACKING MANDATE

ICAO introduced its new Aircraft Tracking standard for commercial aircraft following the loss of Malaysia Airlines MH370 in March 2014, recommending position reports every 15 minutes. The Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) was introduced on 8th November, 2018, as part of ICAO’s Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS). Many regulatory authorities have been mandating these recommendations, with operators expected to fit trackers to their aircraft, many using satellite services. However, IATA estimated at the end of 2019 that fewer than 70% of airliners flying in remote regions meet the requirements. Meanwhile from 1st January, 2021, under the Autonomous Distress Tracking requirement, new production aircraft over 27,000kg (59,500lbs) Maximum Takeoff Mass must be able to produce position reports once per minute, independent of aircraft power and with the ability to be activated remotely – this being designed for aircraft in distress and for locating aircraft in a search. This capability is recommended for aircraft over 5,700kg (12,500lbs) MTOM also.

OEM Bites

Piaggio has won a nearly $221m contract from the Italian Ministry of Defense for nine Avanti Evos and the retrofit of more than 19 aircraft. Under the aircraft order, Piaggio will deliver over the next four years five of the twin turboprops in a passenger and ambulance configuration and four for other missions. www.piaggioaerospace.it

Dassault Falcon Deliveries Flat Dassault Aviation delivered 40 Falcon business jets last year, one fewer than it did in 2018. “While we had guided for 45 Falcon deliveries in 2019, we had to face a difficult market,” the OEM remarked. alcon net order intake was on par with deliveries, resulting in a 1:1 book-to-bill ratio, but represented two fewer orders than the 42 Falcons ordered in 2018. The overall Falcon backlog at the end of 2019 stood at 53 units – the same as it was at the end of 2018.

Final assembly of the first 6X is set for “early 2020”. First flight is due next year, with entry into service following in 2022. More information from www.dassaultfalcon.com

Elliott Aviation

has announced their remote-mount, Garmin-based ADS-B solution has now been installed in over 600 business aircraft. These aircraft include Citations, Hawkers, Beechjets, Premiers, Falcons, Learjets, Challengers, Astras, ERJ’s and many others. The solution also provides seamless integration to existing cockpit controls including TCAS-II equipped aircraft. In addition to ADS-B OUT, this STC includes ADS-B IN through a Bluetooth compatible device through Garmin’s Flight Stream wireless platform. The STC replaces an aircraft’s transponders with remote-mount Garmin GTX-3000 smart transponders. Elliott Aviation’s Garmin ADS-B STC’s do not require any modification to a current avionics package and do not require any current equipment to be sent out for upgrades, which removes the risk of having additional cost. Aircraft equipped with this solution gives the operator a $50,000 credit toward a future Garmin G5000 installation in the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP or Citation Excel/XLS www.elliottaviation.com

EAP Widens Engine Support

Hourly engine maintenance programme Engine Assurance Program (EAP), known for its support of the TFE731 engine and its variants, has added the PW305A/B, Tay 611-8 and CF343A-3A1 to its portfolio. The engines power the Lear 60/XR, Hawker 1000, Gulfstream GIV/SP and Challenger 601 1A/3A. “Clients have been asking us to extend coverage to these engines. They fit our mission of supporting older engine platforms and of helping owners save money. No EAP clients have ever missed a trip because of an AOG issue either. When a customer calls with an unscheduled engine issue, we jump into action until the engine is returned to service. We will fight hard as long as we can to keep our track record flawless and keep our customers in the air,” says programme coordinator Sean Lynch. 112  Vol 24 Issue 2 2020  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

EAP's oversight helps operators with dispatch reliability, increased residual value and significant cost savings, often as much as $80-$120 per engine per hour www.eap.aero
