Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT Bill de Decker

Back to the Future – 35 Years

N

obody could deny Business Aviation has come a long way in the last 35 years. Looking back to 1984, NetJets was only a vision of Richard Santulli who had just purchased Executive Jet

Aviation. The most popular business jet model was the Learjet 35A and Cessna was in the lead with the most combined deliveries of its Citation line of Light and Mid-size Jets. In the Long-Range category, the Falcon 50 was the leader for Dassault and the Gulfstream GIII was having a strong year. Meanwhile, Bombardier’s Challenger was the first entry in the new Super Mid-size Jet class. What’s more, we were all looking forward to the all-new GIV, which was nearing its first flight. Impressively, many of these aircraft are still flying today, which is a testament to the quality of manufacturing, technology and years of proper mai ntenance. But away from the manufacturing side, the launch of several entrepreneurial Business Aviation start-ups also took place at that time, including a company called Conklin & de Decker. Al Conklin and I met while working at Falcon Jet in the early 1970s and we went on to publish the first Aircraft Cost Evaluator in 1972. Our combined experience spanned the military, aircraft sales, engineering and c ost analysis, and we had a passion for business jets. We recognized a demand for accurate, trustworthy, directly comparable aircraft cost and performance data that could help businesses and individuals make more informed decisions when buying an aircraft. Since then, Conklin & de Decker has become a leader in that field and also consults on a wide range of subjects, including fleet planning, acquisitions and taxes. A little over a year ago, we announced that Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI) had acquired our company. As JSSI added programs, expanded into parts and leasing, and introduced advisory services such as overhaul management, inspections and appraisals, it was a logical step to acquire our data, tax and consulting business in 2018. The result is that JSSI and Conklin & de Decker are positioned for the future and no longer just provide hourly maintenance programs or databases but support the entire life cycle of owning and operating an aircraft. Our two companies have many things in common but the most important, in my opinion, is our dedication to our customers.

What’s Changed in BizAv?

One of the great things about Business Aviation is the constant pursuit of innovation. In 1984, the push was for more range, more speed, better performance, lower fuel consumption, less noise, lower maintenance costs and better avionics. And that has not changed one bit today! So what has changed? It’s the sheer amount of information that’s available to consumers. People consume vastly more data today and depend on it to make decisions. This was a big motivation for the creation of the Conklin & de Decker Report, ba sed on our flagship Aircraft Cost Evaluator that is now easily accessed via the web or mobile app. Another change has been the globalization of Business Aviation with its Ultra-Long-Range Jets and worldwide operations. To address this, we’re expanding our research to accurately depict regional variations in operating costs, starting with the Asia-Pacific and European regions. Meanwhile, the one area that hasn’t changed since 1984 is the importance of great customer service. Even with increased automation and digital access to our products I don’t foresee the personal level of our service we believe in going out of style.

And on to the Next Generation in BizAv…

As we look to the next generation of Business Aviation, we see supersonic transportation (SST) making a comeback; not the 1980s SST version but with new, efficient engines that will burn the latest sustainable alternative jet fuel blend and with no perceptible sonic boom. We see futuristic eVTOL designs and talk of autonomous aircraft. However, one vital element to our industry’s longevity is its ability to attract and retain young talent—pilots, maintainers, design engineers, software developers and sales reps who share the same passion for aviati on that led many of us to devote our entire careers to this industry. With them we will continue the legacy of business aviation for many years into the future.

His areas of expertise include financial management, business and fleet planning, certification issues, life cycle cost and operations.

MARKET INDICATORS

Business Aviation Market Overview

What is the condition of the Business Aviation market as we roll into the summer months? And what are the key factors influencing it? Rollie Vincent, editor, Market Indicators reviews…

E

arly indications of the state of the business aircraft sales market point in decidedly different directions – at least based on evidence from Q1 2019 earnings calls for publicly traded companies, aircraft sales databases, and presentations and conversations from various industry conferences. New aircraft sales appear to have got off to a good start in the first three months of the year, with four of the big five OEMs reporting book-to-bill ratios well above 1-to-1. Those same four manufacturers report a total of 113 new business jet deliveries in Q1 2019, up 8.7% Year-over-Year (YoY). Embraer deliveries were flat YoY in Q1 2019, while Bombardier was off a little from Q1 2018 as it prepares for production ramp-up of the Global 7500 in H2 2019. All told, these results were in line with our forecasts, while net new order activity was boosted by several fleet orders

16 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

and by the availability of well-priced ‘whitetails’ built in 2018 but held in unsold finished goods inventory at the end of last year.

Slowing Used Jet Market

After a record number of used business jets were sold to end-users in 2018, sales in Q1 2019 have been decidedly slower to date, down 20% YoY. JETNET recorded more than 2,850 used business jet transactions in 2018, up about 3% YoY from 2017’s record performance. Transaction volumes in 2018 were up an impressive 29% over the pre-financial crisis total in 2007, while days on market for aircraft that sold slipped 9% YoY to about 285 days. There were about 2,100 business jets listed as for sale in JETNET’s database at the time of press, representing about 9.5% of the in-service fleet. www.AVBUYER.com

compliance issues, identify and engage all of the transaction players, negotiate deal terms and structure the transaction, and get the aircraft and the principals and their checkbooks to closing are as challenging as ever. With thousands of fixed-wing turbine business aircraft unlikely to be ADS-B Out compliant at the bell on New Year’s Eve of 2019, it has never been more important for a prospective customer/aircraft buyer to engage a highly experienced aircraft broker/dealer who has the market savvy and experience to navigate the complexities of today’s marketplace.

MRO Market Difficulties Ahead (for Some)

Fully 43% of for sale business jets were initially delivered to customers more than 20 years ago, limiting the attractiveness of much of the inventory to both buyers and sellers.

Growing Comfort With Older Jets…

Tellingly, customers for business jets have become quite comfortable owning and operating older aircraft. Fully 85% of the more than 500 respondents to JETNET iQ’s Q4 2018 survey, representing owners and operators in 60 countries operating almost 5% of the world business jet fleet, indicate that they are comfortable flying aircraft that are greater than 10 years old. North American owners/operators appear to be the most comfortable flying older aircraft compared with the other major world regions, no doubt linked to the relatively high density of MRO facilities and maintenance talent that sustains high levels of aircraft operational readiness.

Buyer ADS-B Awareness is Necessary

With ADS-B Out mandates looming at the end of the year in the US and in mid-2020 in Europe, the time to identify a desirable asset, schedule and execute a pre-buy inspection, isolate and schedule required maintenance, address any www.AVBUYER.com

Another hot/cold market has emerged in the business aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) segment, with OEMs investing organically in their aftermarket services businesses with the construction of new facilities and the addition of service locations. Many MRO shops are working around the clock to meet their customers’ requirements, whether for ADS-B Out and the ever-popular cabin Wi-Fi upgrades, or simply to keep up to date with regularly scheduled maintenance. In what is no doubt a coup for Dassault Aviation, the company has recently signed deals to acquire MRO networks from leading providers ExecuJet and TAG, which following regulatory approval will vastly expand the company’s service and support footprint in established and emerging markets across the vast European, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific regions. For smaller repair shops and others that have recently lost their OEM-authorized service facility status, the times are likely to get tougher before they get better, especially after the ADS-B Out waves have worked their way through the system.

In Summary…

Against a backdrop of international trade tensions and tariffs, gyrating stock markets, the unresolved Brexit divorce, an early and noisy start to another contentious US Presidential election, and potential aircraft certification delays in the wake of the Boeing 737 MAX accidents, the stage is set for more uncertainty – one cold or hot blast at a time. In our view, these are amongst the headwinds that prevent an even more vibrant market for business aircraft sales. page 18 MI www.navigating360.com

Understanding the Business Aviation Market - with AvBuyer

Flight Activity – Europe

According to WingX, there were 66,165 Business Aviation departures in Europe during April. Though similar to March, the figure represents a 3.1% decline in activity compared to April 2018. The past 12-month activity is trending at just under 1% growth, WingX notes. Specifically, business jet activity recorded a heavy decline this month with 5% fewer flights YoY and an 8% decline in privately-filed flights. Declines of at least 10% YoY in France, the UK and Switzerland were logged in the Small and Medium Jet segments. France had the biggest fall in overall Business Aviation activity during April with flights down 7% YoY. The UK, Spain and Switzerland were also well down, and of the ‘Top 5’, only Spain still has YTD growth in flights. Most of the decline in April was for flights within Europe (down 4% YoY). Flights between Europe and the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific also continued to decline in April. However, flights from Europe to North America and to Africa increased. “Business Aviation activity slowed further this month, reinforcing the impression that European demand has stalled since Q4 2018,” summarized Richard Koe, Managing Director, WingX. “Business jet activity is slowing across all the top regional markets, especially in the light aircraft segments. Business jet charter flights were well down YoY… Broader macro issues are clearly affecting the industry, with London flight activity down by 5% this year. “One exception to the negative overall picture is Ultra-Long-Range activity which is trending up, primarily in fractional and charter activity,” he concluded.

According to AEA’s Q1 2019 avionics market report, in the first three months of the year, total worldwide Business and General Aviation avionics sales amounted to just over $724m. That’s a 13.2% increase in total sales compared to Q1 2018 (~$639m). Of the >$724m Q1 2019 sales, 53.6% came from the retrofit market while forward-fit sales amounted to 46.4%. According to the companies that separated their total sales figures between North America (US and Canada) and other international markets, 76.1% of Q1 sales occurred in North America. "While it is likely that ADS-B installations in the US are a contributing

factor to the increase in YoY sales as we get closer to the FAA's equipage deadline, those are fairly straightforward installations," said AEA President and CEO Mike Adamson. "Our member repair stations report that they are also doing an increasing number of full-panel retrofits. “Installations of new electronic flight displays, digital autopilots, engine monitor systems, in-flight connectivity and other technologies are keeping the shops extremely busy, and the ongoing work has helped drive an increase in Year-over-Year sales for nine-straight quarters."

Five Year New and Pre-Owned Aircraft Forecast Jetcraft has released a five-year new and pre-owned Business Aviation market forecast – and anticipates 11,765 pre-owned transactions over the next five years along with 3,444 new deliveries. The pre-owned transactions are projected to equate to $61bn in value, and the new deliveries will represent $90.5bn, Jetcraft says. Moreover, by 2023 it is expected that industry value will reach nearly $30bn per annum. “This is the first forecast to precisely analyze both new and pre-owned business aircraft transactions over a five-year period,” notes Jahid Fazal-Karim, Owner and Chairman of the Board at Jetcraft. “The findings show that our industry will continue to grow in size and scale… “New aircraft unit deliveries are predicted to stay flat throughout the forecast period while generating higher

revenues, due to the increase in large aircraft transactions. Meanwhile, the pre-owned market is forecast to grow at a proportionally faster rate than new.” Pre-owned business aircraft transactions are expected to outpace those of new deliveries four to one by 2023, according to the forecast. “Buyers who in the past exclusively bought new aircraft are now more willing to consider preowned if it suits their mission, partly due to better opportunities for aircraft refurbishment and increasing MRO capabilities,” Fazal-Karim suggests. Jetcraft’s forecast also maintains the clear shift towards large aircraft, both in pre-owned and new unit deliveries and highlights that the average retirement age of a business aircraft is 32.

JETNET Q1 2019 Used Aircraft Market Update JETNET’s Q1 2019 results for the used aircraft markets (vs Q1 2018) show that inventories are generally down across the board, except for Piston Aircraft. Lower inventories are certainly good news, but a pronounced decline in Q1 retail sales and leases were also recorded. For all fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft combined, an overall 25% reduction in sales for Q1 2019 vs. Q1 2018 was recorded. Looking at the specifics, a 19.9% decline was noted for business jet retail sales. “These figures could prove to be fluid as notice of a few late quarter transactions may yet trickle in,” JETNET qualified. “Still, it must be acknowledged that the late-year stock market correction and prolonged US government shutdown (December 22 through January 25) had a deleterious impact on the pre-owned market.” Across all aircraft sectors, there was a total of 6,138 or 1.9% fewer aircraft for sale in the quarterly comparison. That’s a difference of 120 fewer aircraft and helicopters for sale. Interestingly, fleet for sale percentages for business jets showed the same 9.3% for 2019 and 2018 in the quarterly comparison. Total full sale transactions were down by 620 aircraft and helicopters. Though business jet full sale transactions decreased, they took less time to sell (21 fewer days) than last year. However, business turboprops showed a decrease of 9.6% in sales, but remained unchanged in terms of 26 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

Fleet asset quality improved nearly 1.2% in April while Maintenance Exposure also improved 1.4%. Overall, the tracked inventory posted the following: • Quality Rating was below the 12-month average, but it did manage to skirt into the ‘Excellent’ range, increasing from 5.191 in March to 5.251 for April, on Asset Insight’s scale of -2.5 to 10. • Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense), although below the 12-month average, improved (decreased) to $1.4m from March’s $1.42m.

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 for sale on the market increases, usually by more than 30%. During Q1 2019, assets whose ETP Ratio was 40% or more were listed for sale over 62% longer (on average) than aircraft whose Ratio was below 40% (i.e. 237 days versus 384 days on the market). April’s analysis also noted that 55% of all tracked models and nearly 63% of the tracked fleet posted an ETP Ratio above 40% (see Table B). Our tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio posted another improvement in April, decreasing to 63.6% from March’s 66%. Turboprops posted the lowest (best) ETP Ratio at 54.9% (although that reflected a worsening from last month’s 52.9% and a 12-month worst figure; Large Jets improved from 62.2% to 60.2%; Small Jets improved from 62% to 61.5%; and Medium Jets improved from 79.5% to 72.9%.

Average aircraft value for the tracked fleet increased just under 1% to post a figure just over $60k higher than the record low value. While Medium Jets posted a 12-month high figure and Small Jet values remained above their 12-month average, these increases could not overcome ask price decreases posted by Large Jets and Turboprops.

Market Summary

The continued increase to the inventory fleet must be worrisome for Large Jet sellers as final transaction values have shown a noticeable drop during the past few weeks. Small Jets also experienced an increase to the fleet for sale, but the impact on their pricing has not been as dramatic… at least, not yet.

Large Jets April Market Summary

Large Jet inventory increased by another 16 units, with April’s fleet mix change seeing a large number of higher quality assets enter inventory. Better asset quality ought to command higher pricing, but that does not appear to be the case as values are under supply pressure and there is an apparent desire by many sellers to transact while the trading climate is still favorable. Ask Prices decreased another 2.5% in April and are now

Medium Jets April Market Summary

Inventory for the tracked fleet decreased by three units in April, and asset quality improved an impressive 3.7% while Maintenance Exposure improved (decreased) 2.1%. If you combine those figures with a 4% price increase in April (a 12month high figure and a 7.5% increase for the year) the result is an ETP Ratio of 72.9%, the group’s best figure since July 2018. Buyers and sellers are clearly finding common ground and, since 11.6% of the tracked inventory fleet is listed for sale, Asset Insight believes the traditional 10% transition point between a buyer’s and seller’s market may be shifting to a higher number.

Small Jets April Market Summary

Inventory increased by another 18 units following March’s 16unit increase. Changes to the inventory fleet mix marginally improved asset quality and slightly worsened Maintenance Exposure. However, pricing improved 2.6% in April and the group’s ETP Ratio fell slightly to post a 12-month low (best) figure at 61.6%. While many aging aircraft are the ones seeking a new home, buyers and sellers have obviously found common pricing ground, and with only 9.7% of the active fleet in play, they should continue to do so.

MARKET INDICATORS

GAMA Q1 2019 Shipment Analysis The General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s Q1 2019 new airplane shipment report was the most optimistic seen in a very long time. Mike Potts drills down into the numbers…

C

ontinuing the trend at the successful completion of 2018, the jet and turboprop segments finished ahead of where they were in Q1 2018. Q1 2019 jet deliveries totaled 141 units, up 6.8% over the 132 recorded in Q1 2018. Turboprops were up 7% (123 units versus 115 in Q1 2018). More importantly, the underlying softness characterizing the market generally and the jet segment specifically over the past five years seems to be dissipating. For the first time since 2014, the market is exhibiting signs of a recovery that looks like it has legs.

The Business Jet Market

Turning to the jet market specifics, seven of the 11 jet OEMs reporting matched or bettered their results from Q1 2018. Four of the companies are ahead while three still lag. The remaining company (Dassault) does not report in Q1 and Q3. Notably, this year the size of the gains are more significant 40 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

than they were a year ago. Looking at the specifics of the jet market, Cessna is the leader in deliveries by a wide margin, recording 44 units, up 22.2% from the 36 shipped in Q1 2018. Moreover, Cessna’s new Latitude model is tied for the lead in jet deliveries with 14 units, matching the total recorded by the Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet. Latitude deliveries were up from 12 units a year ago, but the growing solidity of the market is reflected in Cessna’s other results. Four of its six jet models besides the Latitude were ahead of last year and none lagged last year’s results. Gulfstream, which has occupied third place in jet deliveries in recent years, moved up to second in the Q1 2019 report with 34 shipments; a gain of 30.8% over the 26 reported in Q1 2018. Slipping into third place is Bombardier with 24 units. Deliveries fell 22.6% from the 31 units shipped this time last year. Despite the softer market for Bombardier products this quarter www.AVBUYER.com

deliveries started for the Global 7500. Meanwhile, Challenger 350 deliveries were down from 12 units to nine compared with last year, but the Challenger 350 was still the third best-selling business jet in the industry in the past quarter. Gulfstream’s strong performance made it an easy winner in the billings race with a total of $1.836bn, nearly twice the $927m of its closest billings competitor, Bombardier. Cirrus captured fourth place in jet deliveries with 14 units, a gain over the 10 reported in Q1 2018. Occupying the number five position in jet sales for Q1 2019 is Embraer, the same spot it occupied in Q1 2018. Embraer reported 11 jet deliveries in Q1 2019, the same as a year ago. Honda is sixth with seven shipments, down from 12 a year ago. The influx of new jet OEMs in recent years has had the effect of significantly roiling the middle portion of the jet market, contributing to Honda’s repositioning. Seventh spot goes to Pilatus with five units, up from two units last year. www.AVBUYER.com

Deliveries of Pilatus PC-24 jets are slowly accelerating, so it would not be surprising to see the Swiss manufacturer move further up the rankings eventually. Airbus is in eighth place with two deliveries, up from none reported last year. And the last two companies on GAMA’s jet list are tied with no deliveries. Boeing reported four deliveries in Q1 2018, while One Aviation failed to deliver any jets a year ago. In fact, the last time One reported deliveries to GAMA was back in 2017. This quarter marks the first time Airbus has reported deliveries to GAMA since 2015. It’s a reasonable assumption that Airbus has made international deliveries without reporting them to GAMA in the interest of maintaining client confidentiality.

The Turboprop Market

Turning to the turboprop market we find results that are even better than in the jet market. By my

count, business turboprop deliveries are ahead of last year by fully 12.7%, though you won’t find that number in the GAMA report, which shows the turboprop gain at 7%. The reason for this discrepancy is that GAMA includes agricultural turboprops in with the traditional business aircraft numbers. Clearly the purely business turboprop view makes for a much more optimistic way to see the market today. Focusing only on business turboprops we see a market that totaled 80 aircraft in Q1 2019, up from 71 units in Q1 2018. That’s a very strong performance in my view. Of the nine business turboprop OEMs GAMA lists in its report, seven enjoyed equal or improved results over a year ago, while two had negative results. Leading the turboprop market, as usual over the past three decades, is Textron’s Beechcraft unit with 23 units, up 35.3% from the 17 shipments reported last year. Following closely in second place is Textron’s Cessna unit with 21 deliveries, up from 12 last year. For Cessna that’s a phenomenal increase of 75%, and clearly at this point it would take only a small market shift for Cessna to overtake Beechcraft. Textron’s aviation unit has an absolute lock on the turboprop segment, with no one else coming close to those top two positions. Pilatus took third place in shipments with 12 units, which exactly matches its Q1 2018 total. No other turboprop OEM reported double digit deliveries in Q1 2019. 42 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

AVBUYER.com

Although the numbers are smaller, the middle of the turboprop market is hotly contested among three OEMs, including Daher, Piper and Quest: • Daher reported eight deliveries in Q1 2019, matching results for the same period last year. • Piper shipped seven airplanes in Q1 2019, down from 10 a year ago. • Quest matched its Q1 2018 total with seven shipments in Q1 2019. Bringing up the rear of the turboprop segment were Pacific Aero with two (matching its Q1 2018 result); AVIC which made no shipments this year or last; and finally Piaggio which also made no shipments in Q1 2019, down from three in Q1 2018.

Q1 2019 Shipment Reflections

On balance both the jet and turboprop markets appear to be stronger than they have been in the recent past. Coming, as we did, from a particularly strong year-end performance at the end of 2018, I was expecting that Q1 2019 might experience some softness as a result of companies working particularly hard to finish the year strong and thereby cutting into the next year’s Q1 2019 performance. Clearly that didn’t happen, and we seem to be moving into 2019 on a stronger footing. We can be hopeful that this trend will continue as the rest of the year unfolds.

Used Jet Market Opinion: Chris Brenner, Jetcraft Whether it's buyer uncertainty or a lack of premium inventory, some analysts have noted a dip in the used jet market in the opening months of 2019. Rebecca Applegarth asks how Jetcraft’s Chris Brenner reads the situation…

S

o far, 2019 has been a year of global uncertainty on many fronts, whether due to talk of potential Sino-American trade wars, Brexit, or political restiveness in

Europe. Has the political instability impacted the global used business jet sales arena? What else has affected used aircraft sales trends in the early part of the year? Various reports on the used jet marketplace indicated a slight slowing Year-overYear for used aircraft transactions during the first quarter of 2019. Having been trading in the pre-owned Business Aviation marketplace since 1962, today Jetcraft has offices around the world, and in 2018 the company facilitated more than 100 aircraft transactions for the first time in its history. Understandably, the health of the market in 2019 is of special interest. “Several of the strongest markets for Business Aviation are currently experiencing political uncertainty,” Chris Brenner explains, “so naturally this is making buyers and sellers more cautious.” Brenner has been in the Business Aviation industry for the past twelve years, having originally joined Jetcraft as sales and marketing coordinator in 2009 from a small aircraft dealership that specialized in piston and light turbine aircraft. He has since held various sales positions within the organization and was appointed senior vice president, sales for the Americas in 2017. “Taking a longer-term view,” he elaborates, “we are still in a period of steady growth - so if there is a slight slowing, it is all part of the cycle.”

Impacts of an Evaporating Pool of Inventory

An additional consideration as to what brought about the slowing in sales during early 2019 is that less than 10% of the world’s fleet of jets is currently on the market, which historically is very low. The expectation is that with the leading aircraft manufacturers due to deliver some attractive newly-certified jets to customers later this year, some of those new aircraft owners will release their current jets onto the used market, thereby replenishing it somewhat. www.AVBUYER.com

Until that happens, though, there remains an unusually low percentage of newer used jets in the market. A recent report from Hagerty Jet Group highlighted the resulting buyer frustration as a reason for an increase in off-market transactions (specifically in the Gulfstream G550 market, in the case of Hagerty’s analysis). But is this something that is being seen in the wider used aircraft marketplace – and if so, should it be of concern to anybody? “It has been widely reported that there is a lack of younger inventory, and buyers are having to turn to older aircraft,” Brenner reflects. “Many sales do take place before an aircraft has been marketed, which you could define as being ‘off-market’. However, this serves to demonstrate the demand for pre-owned aircraft in today’s market. “It should also highlight the need to work with consultants that have inventory visibility and can provide you with up-to-the-minute market insights,” Brenner explains. Though a buyer might like to find an off-market ‘deal’, the reality is that they may be less likely to find sellers prepared to accept an offer in keeping with the realities of the on-market aircraft values. “Buyers and sellers need to do their due diligence. Then transparency is not an issue,” Brenner says of selecting the best consultant to represent your interests in an aircraft transaction, whether it’s on or off the market.

Stable, Sensible Pricing Essential

So, what will be important if the market is to continue to thrive when the pace of transactions picks up again and the anticipated replenishment of inventory occurs? Speaking for both the near- and mid-term, Brenner concludes, “It is important that the market remains stable. For that to happen, pricing needs to remain sensible to avoid over-supply and maintain this period of steady, healthy growth.” ❙ More information from www.jetcraft.com AVBUYER MAGAZINE ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘

Tips for Approaching Today’s Used Aircraft Market What’s the best advice for buyers and sellers entering today’s

international used aircraft marketplace, and why does it help to broaden the search as widely as possible? Jet Tolbert discusses…

L

ooking back over our recent aircraft sales, it’s clear there has been a stronger international flavor lately. While this micro trend doesn’t infer that all deals are international, there is definitely a growing element in the market that both buyers and sellers could use to their advantage. Though there are many variables to aircraft transactions and every deal is unique, following are some observations and tips that buyers and sellers of used jets could use to their advantage when developing their strategy…

Strong International Seller Presence

According to JETNET iQ, as of Q4 2018, 62.3% of the business jet fleet resided in the US, meaning that 52 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

almost 40% doesn’t... In fact, if you’re looking for a specific aircraft type on the market, you can expect to find foreign-registered aircraft for sale representing nearly every make and model. As of this writing, as much as 50% of some make/model fleets that are for sale are registered in Europe. Moreover, just because an aircraft has an Nregister doesn’t mean that its owners are from the US. But why does this matter? Let’s elaborate…

US Aircraft Buyers: Higher Risk, Higher Reward?

As a US-based buyer you could approach your shortlisting process one of two ways. You could narrow your risk exposure by considering only USbased aircraft (and in doing so you’d be narrowing

your market options). Alternatively, you could take on extra risk associated with buying internationallybased aircraft and importing them, and also broaden your shortlist. By automatically assuming the lower-risk approach, however, buyers have fallen short. By limiting their options to aircraft on the N-register (and in some cases ruling out as many as half the available airplanes for sale for the desired make and model), low-risk buyers can actually heighten the risk of overpaying for their business jet. Think about it: Shopping only the domestic market could be the difference between looking at the market as 5% of the fleet for sale versus 10% of the fleet for sale which is a significant difference between a tight, seller’s market and a softer, buyer’s market. It’s true that in today’s market, should a buyer see ‘the one,’ it’s necessary for them to act fast or miss out — but this must be tempered with a longer-term view that there are more aircraft coming up for sale, and more opportunities on the way. There should be no reason to over-pay for an aircraft in today’s market.

US Aircraft Sellers: Knowledge is Key

Savvy sellers will be aware that there are plenty of US-based buyers unwilling to consider an internationally-based aircraft. Indeed, there are ways to create greater bargaining power and yield a 54 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

higher sale price if the right buyer can be found. That buyer will be interested in acquiring the right USbased aircraft quickly. To capitalize, it becomes important for the seller to develop a marketing plan that identifies the target market and reaches all potential buyers within that market directly. Moreover, the seller will need to have the details and history of all the competitive aircraft for sale in the same (and similar) market segments, and develop an understanding of the value trends for aircraft in similar market segments. All of this will help create a compelling value proposition for their aircraft.

US Aircraft Sellers: Don’t Overlook International Buyers

US sellers may conclude that talk is cheap; anyone from anywhere can express an interest in buying an aircraft. While it’s true there are many tire-kickers in the market, there are also genuine and qualified buyers willing to export aircraft from the US market. So the best strategy will include reaching out, beyond the obvious US-based buyers to the target buyers in other regions, too. Again, it will pay to qualify and advise each prospec t on the value proposition of your aircraft, as well as the sale process. Whether a prospective buyer is domestic or internationally-based, the actions of some will raise a www.AVBUYER.com

red flag. It’s important to understand the differences between domestic and international transactions to know if behavior should be deemed a warning sign, or is cultural practice. For example, many international buyers take more time to process the transaction due to their local banking and aviation regulations. International banking system can cause a difference of wire transfer times by as much as seve ral days, or even a fortnight. Nevertheless, most international buyers will try to keep their US counterparty well apprised of the process, providing copies of outgoing wire transfers when ordered as well as other regulatory updates as needed. Another item worth consideration is that international buyers will have to sort the ferry flight to the importing country, a process that takes time. But there are te mporary registration options to offer international buyers to help ease this process.

deposit terms and a closing on US soil. Offering details on your past aircraft ownership history can also go a long way in demonstrating to the seller that you’re familiar with the transactional process and are likely to close.

In Summary…

Whether you’re a buyer or seller, international or USbased, it’s always a good idea to be selective about who manages the sale or acquisition of an aircraft for you – especially in today’s marketplace, where there is such a strong international presence and many potential pitfalls. The right partner will present all details in context to paint an accurate picture of the market and enable a well-informed decision at each phase of the sale or acquisition.

How do ‘Income Approach’ Aircraft Appraisals Differ? What’s an income approach to aircraft appraisal, and how does it differ from a sales comparison approach? Jeremy Cox highlights how the income approach could provide a logical rationale for upgrading your jet and persuading your bank or financier to back you...

J

ust by reading the words ‘Income Approach Appraisal’, you could be forgiven for believing you’re in for a dusty, boring read. Nothing could be further from the truth! This is an area of aircraft appraisal filled with interesting twists and turns… First, though, let’s cover the very basics. What exactly is an income approach? Simply defined, an income approach is a method of determining both the present val ue and the future economic benefits of owning an aircraft (or fleet of aircraft). In the past, I’ve noted that an aircraft may be worth more than the appraised fair market value (FMV) to a buyer and seller, based upon their own unique circumstances. Let’s use the following hypothetical example of a special-use aircraft to illustrate this method of appraisal. (Note, our example could be just as easily used for an aircraft owned and operated in Part 135 charter). 58 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

What is the Income of the Aircraft Operation?

Imagine you own two 40-year old Learjet 35A jets that are outfitted and operated as air ambulances (Medi-Vac). Your ‘S Corporation’ has three five-year contracts with separate insurance companies for you to provide emergency evacuation air-lift services from the Caribbean and southern Florida, delivering sick or injured patients into the New York area. A typical mission is Miami to Long Island with a patient and spouse aboard. The patient is tended to by a flight nurse and two pilots occupy the cockpit. Normally, you charge $30,000 for this flight and you typically are called to make this flight once every four days. Other reoccurring missions are Punta Cana to Long Island and Ochoa Rios to Long Island a nd you charge more for these flights. Now imagine that you are planning to reduce the fleet age by half. In doing so, you will reduce the www.AVBUYER.com

total-time-in-service of the aircraft (currently 24,500 flight hours) to 7,000hrs, as well as lower your direct operating cost by more than 10%. Moreover, you will add a touch more range and reduce trip times marginally. This can all be achieved by swapping your fleet of 40-year-old Learjet 35As with two 18-year-old Learjet 45s. To achieve your goal, however, you must get financing which will require an appraisal…

What are Your Borrowing Needs?

Having paid $1.9m for each of your Learjet 35As in 1984, you paid off the loan for both aircraft within five years. Unfortunately, today each of your aircraft will struggle to appraise at 25% of what you paid for them, even though the Learjet 45s that you are seeking to buy have fared even worse than your Learjet 35As, based upon ‘Residual Value’. You need to borrow $3.5m and you can’t put your current aircraft on the market until you have their replacements on your certificate and flying missions. Ultimately, your bank wants proof of 30% collateralto-loan before funding the purchase, and you need a better than FMV appraisal. While it is highly unlikely you will get an appraisal that comes close to $1m for both the aircraft, you make a key move when yo u call an appraiser who’s familiar and competent in calculating FMV utilizing the ‘Income Approach to Value’. www.AVBUYER.com

After scrutinizing your journey logs for each aircraft, your income statements and your annual expense records, your savvy appraiser determines each Learjet 35A aircraft that you own flies 604.8 hours per annum (utilization), and generates a Net Revenue of $755,000 ($2.7m Annual Revenue versus $1.945m expenses). The Likely FMV of each of your Learjets individually is $450,000, and therefore your appraiser can calculate the Capitalization Rate as follows: $450,000/$571,535 (Net Revenue minus tax) = 78.7% Next, your appraiser performs the calculation represented in Table A (below) to determine the Income Approach FMV result of each aircraft (this is th e Direct Capitalization Approach to obtain the Income Value). Based on the calculation, FMV via the income approach is $726,000 for each aircraft, versus $450,000 if only the sales comparison approach to value were used.

What are the Benefits of Changing Aircraft?

Next, we need to compare the benefits of replacing your ageing Learjet 35As with newer Learjet 45s. Among the advantages that you’ll gain by moving into the Learjet 45 models (in our illustrative example) are: • A lower direct operating cost (DOC) resulting in $1,292 being saved on each Miami International Airport (KMIA) to LaGuardia Airport (KLGA) flight; • The lower DOC could reduce your annual cost by $144,940; • The time per mission (KMIA to KLGA) would be 0.16hrs less per flight due to the higher cruising speed and better economy. On the downside, you will be making a monthly loan payment for the next five years. Currently you make none, as your Learjet 35As were paid off decades ago. You do, however get to book the interest payments as an expense (in this case about $75,000p/a). With all things considered, your annual balance sheet per aircraft is represented in Table B (right). While the details may not look so attractive to you, remember that when you sell both of your Learjet 35As you’ll be able to apply this realized amount to your loan (assuming no ‘pre-payment’ penalty), generating a $157,944 annual saving on your loan expense. Finally, with newer, faster a nd more efficient aircraft you can fly more missions and attract additional contract clients who may have been put off before because of the age of your fleet. Our imaginary scenario has a happy ending. With a collateral value amount established as $1.452m (when you were only required to justify $1.05m) you easily satisfied your banker and he/she quickly got your loan approved so you could move ahead with the much-needed update of your Learjet fleet. What I have shown you is a highly simplified

method of calculating the FMV of a special use aircraft by utilizing the income approach. Although we used a Medi-Vac example, a similar income approach could be applied to the appraisal of a charter-use aircraft.

Guarantee Your Happy Ending…

Those seeking a real-life happy ending to an income approach aircraft appraisal are strongly advised not to take the above simplified example and apply it to their own situation. If you do, you will likely be very wrong in your final FMV. This is because every real-life scenario is unique and has multiple factors and points of value that must be considered to produce both a credible and defendable opinion of value. For an accurate assessment, you should contact an appraiser with a firm grasp of income approach appraisals.

Understanding the Basics of Aircraft Financing What are the essentials of aircraft financing prospective borrowers need to understand? What are the common choices faced, and how can buyers make the right decisions for their needs? Dave Higdon reviews…

T

hough the world of aircraft finance bears a striking resemblance to real estate transactions – down to terms and conditions, closings, and title insurance – significant differences do exist. The wise aircraft buyer seeks an expert in the field to assist them in securing the required financing. Nevertheless, a basic understanding of the process can help buyers have a firmer grasp of the purchasing process. Following are some of the essentials to help you understand aircraft financing, and how it impacts an aircraft transaction.

The Currency of an Aircraft Transaction

First, US dollars are the currency of record for aircraft transactions. That means it’s important to keep track of the exchange rates – especially when you’re dealing with an overseas seller who is 62 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

quoting an asking price in their local currency. In such cases it’s best to lock down the price in an agreed currency so you can know what the costs will be in dollars, using the dollar figure throughout the transaction. The lender will certainly be doing the same.

How to Gauge the Total Cost of Financing

Many prospective buyers don’t explore the options for aircraft financing fully enough. While the interest rates matter greatly (and are covered more fully below), so do the terms of the loan and any conditions the buyer must meet. For example: • • • •

What is the length or term of the loan? What are the required down-payments? Are there any pre-payment penalties? What’s the total cost of making the loan? www.AVBUYER.com

operators), and slightly higher for Part 135 operators. Floating rates tied to the three-month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) are available from many lenders.

Is Borrowing Really Your Best Option?

That total cost will include any fees or costs beyond interest and principal, such as a loan origination fee, closing costs, title insurance and similar. Without knowing all the costs it’s impossible to gauge the total cost of the transaction.

What’s in an Interest Rate?

Usually expressed as an annual percentage rate (APR), interest rates deserve your attention. Buyers should scrutinize lower-than-normal interest rates which may mask other expenses that drive the total cost up. After those hidden expenses are factored, the aircraft financing may actually be less favorable compared to another option with a higher stated APR. Today, interest rates remain very competitive for business jets and turboprops aged under ten years. For older business jets and turboprops, the rates may be higher, or other terms may be more onerous (i.e. higher down-payments or shorter terms). As of this writing several aircraft finance firms quoted rates on late-model business turbine aircraft as low as 3.99% for up to ten years (Part 91 www.AVBUYER.com

Tax laws usually inform whether cash or financing is the best option for an individual aircraft buyer. For several years now Congress has helped buoy business aircraft sales by authorizing bonus depreciation. More recently that bonus depreciation has allowed qualified buyers to write off 100% of an aircraft purchase on the first tax year available (an option that doesn't necessarily work for all businesses or individuals). But there's no question that this option influences choices over how to pay for a new or used aircraft purchase. The debate comes down to a cash versus credit discussion, and the decision hinges on which will benefit the buyer's taxes more. With today's low interest rates, borrowing preserves capital for other business uses and still allows the buyer to depreciate, write-off the entire cost of the aircraft, or spread the depreciation for several years in order to get the most out of the tax savings. The right answer to this question will depend on the buyer. However, arriving at the correct one should always involve input from a tax advisor.

Could Leasing be an Option?

A useful alternative to borrowing, leasing comes with some potential pitfalls. Lease transactions work well for companies and individuals able to fully realize the advantages of lease-law tax benefits. Moreover, once the lease ends the lessee need only return the aircraft in the pre-agreed condition. Of course, the lessor may give the lessee operating the aircraft a choice to extend the lease or exercise an option to buy the aircraft at its current market value, whereby the lessee need only pay the residual value to become the full owner.

“Nevertheless, buyers must balance their aircraft needs with forecasted cash flow.” Finding the Tipping Point Between Competing Needs

By now you should have an inkling of the value available from the right finance package. The above should serve to highlight how financing is a valuable tool that creates options for the right type of buyer. Nevertheless, buyers must balance their aircraft needs with forecasted cash flow. Ultimately, as the economy strengthens and the financing institutions become more eager to lend money, they will create new models that capture the attention of qualifying buyers who might otherwise have opted for a cash buy.

The Purchase/Finance Road Map

To conclude, the following illustrates the process aircraft buyers can expect to undergo in order to obtain financing for an aircraft purchase: 1.

Borrower provides basic information about themselves and their prospective aircraft to the lender;

2. 3.

4. 5.

6.

7. 8.

The lender performs an appraisal of the aircraft’s value; The lender performs a title search, based on the aircraft’s registration number, to confirm that no liens or title defects are present (in many cases, a title insurance policy is procured to protect against any undetected defects in title); The lender prepares documentation for the transaction; A security agreement is executed to establish the lender’s security interest in the aircraft, allowing the lender the legal right to repossess the aircraft in the event of loan default; A promissory note is advisable as it makes the borrower responsible for any outstanding loan balance not covered by repossession of the aircraft; If the borrower is deemed less creditworthy, a surety from a third-party (or from multiple third parties) is required; At closing the loan documentation is executed so that the funds and title can transfer. ❙

What are the Aircraft Financing Trends in 2019? Who is seeking aircraft financing in 2019, and how are they obtaining it? Have the financing trends changed – and what’s the outlook going forwards? Rohit Jaggi gets insights from financiers Dave Labrozzi and Martin Ormon…

B

usiness jet sales tend to follow the money — and the US economy performed unexpectedly well in the early months of 2019. However, Business Aviation growth is slowing both in the US and the rest of the world, and business jet sales are being hit by a number of factors. Sales of new and pre-owned jets saw an uptick in 2018 as US tax cuts and changes in the rules on accounting for airplanes took effect. Increasing demand and steadier prices for used jets also signalled the return of some big banks and financiers to the sector, after having their fingers burnt following the financial crisis of 2008. But does that mean financing private jets is becoming easier for buyers? And are specialist lenders being frozen out by competition from the big players? 68 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Two companies, both of which play to their strengths in different parts of the business jet financing market, agreed to explain the challenges to AvBuyer. Dave Labrozzi is chief operating officer of Global Jet Capital, which focuses on aircraft aged 15 years and younger. He says that the big finance corporations are focusing on their high-net-worth clients and the biggest corporate names, but their interest flags when it comes to complicated deals, or anything other than loans secured on the value of the aircraft. Martin Ormon, whose Aircraft Finance Corporation services a US market for older aircraft with loans of $1m to $7m, is more scathing: “[The big bank lenders] believe their model is the best model – and it puts a noose around the customer’s neck. www.AVBUYER.com

were spooked by falling asset prices into calling in their loans. That helped produce a cycle of further price deterioration and an increasing number of repossessions. “I don’t see that perfect storm,” says Labrozzi. “What is different this time is that the major manufacturers are building significantly fewer airplanes.” And that should help maintain values. But another factor helps here: A shortage of high-quality pre-owned jets. “Low-hour, clean airplanes are hard to find,” Ormon notes. “In the pre-owned market the products are not as highquality as they were just a couple of years ago. The really great airplanes are out there, but they’re hard to find.”

“They still want to make it an asset-based loan. An aircraft is not an asset – it depreciates from the second you step in the door and fire the engines up. Far more so than an automobile.”

Playing to Strengths

Ormon’s niche is credit-based, 20-year loans that keep the cost of payments down and are based on the customer’s ability to pay. Offering the example of a customer for whom he refinanced a loan on a Bombardier Challenger 605, Ormon reveals the customer had been paying a bank $70k a month. “With us that became $29k a month,” he illustrates. “Who is going to default first? A guy with a $29k monthly payment, or a guy with a $70k monthly payment?” It’s also true that those who don’t really need to borrow can do so more easily. “The high-net-worth individuals we do business with can dig into their pockets for the $50m-$60m cost of a jet,” says Labrozzi. “But they don’t – they prefer to put their money into their business and get double-digit returns.” The leasing deals Global Jet Capital can put together allow them to do that and have a jet.

What’s Different About Today’s Aircraft Financing Market?

Labrozzi is confident that there is not too much froth in the market. That was part of what happened after the financial crisis where lenders www.AVBUYER.com

Was the US Tax Cuts Impact on Aircraft Sales Limited?

A natural question is whether the effects of the US tax cuts and accounting changes, signed into law at the end of 2017, have already fed through? “The tax law change did give the industry a shot in the arm,” says Labrozzi. But it wasn’t the benefit that many thought: “People bought a jet before the end of the tax year, but then found it was a lot more difficult to deploy the tax benefits.” As a result, Global Jet Capital has done a lot of sale-and-leaseback deals, because, as a leasing specialist that turns over a lot of aircraft, it can utilize the full tax benefits. “The bottom line is that it’s helped our business,” Labrozzi says. According to Ormon, the buying ability of his customers and potential customers has not been significantly dented. “These guys are buying Hawker 850s for $16k a month. “They’re putting $400k down. Sure, you could pay first class for $16k a month, probably non-stop around the world, but that’s not their mentality. Our clients have the cash flow, they’ve got the cash, and that’s what they want to do. “So – with $200k a year in payments and another $700k a year to maintain the airplane and fly it (pilots and everything) – that’s less than $1m a year to own a Hawker.”

“Labrozzi expects a steady market over the next couple of years. His customers are responding to economic and trade uncertainty by putting the tools in place they need to do business.” rising at the same time as a shortage of highquality used/pre-owned jets impacts the number of pre-owned aircraft sales. Labrozzi expects a steady market over the next couple of years. His customers are responding to economic and trade uncertainty by putting the tools in place they need to do business (including private aircraft). He also believes that the sector is in a trade-up replacement cycle. “A lot of my customers are getting ready to take delivery of an airplane they ordered two years ago and it’s time to move their existing airplane,” he says Moreover, some highly desirable airplanes (such as the Dassault Falcon 7X) were undervalued recently when there were a lot on the market. Now the market is absorbing them quickly, Labrozzi says – they are likely to be on the market for only an average of six months. Ormon paints a slightly different picture. “I’d say that lending is down 15%. The aircraft sales are there – there are a lot of people paying cash for

$2m and $3m airplanes, because interest rates have been low for a while and companies have just received a tax cut. Companies are awash with cash that they are not necessarily putting back into the business.” So the number of deals Ormon is doing is down. “Our biggest year, 2017, was 56 deals, with an average value of about $3.2m,” he says. “Our 2018 average was $2.9m, and today we’re probably doing 35-40 deals a year. I don’t see anything changing unless we have a major financial crisis. I think this is the new norm. “The outlook for my sort of financing is good,” Ormon concludes. “The Hawker 800 is becoming a thing of the past and now we’re getting [betterquality] Hawker 850s and 900s that are in that price range.” Labrozzi is also optimistic: “There’s always plenty of business to go around,” he concludes. “I just want to get my unfair share of it!” More information from www.aircraftbanker.com or www.globaljetcapital.com ❚

Flight Department Management: Getting Your Budget Right How effective is the budgeting process in your flight department? What are the methods of predicting and monitoring operating costs? Andre Fodor,

A

Aviation Director for Johnsonville Sausage, provides some tips…

s manager of a flight department, the recollection of my mother’s accounting has served as a helpful reminder of what would be required to balance the expenses, provide transparency, manage costs, and fairly and accurately account for our flight activities. In a low-income household, she kept very precise accounting of family expenses, payments and future obligations. Neatly written numbers accounted for every penny of that tight monthly income, enabling a forecast of how much money 72 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

would be needed to keep the family dressed and fed. Since I am not an accountant, over the following paragraphs we’ll explore budgeting in layman’s terms. The following has been drawn from many years in aircraft and wealth management regarding matters of taxation, depreciation and structuring acquisitions. It all started with the basics — the ABC (Active gathering of; Becoming organized with; and Consistently administering) of data that could be used for gain. Following is a primer. www.AVBUYER.com

Operating Costs: Two Methods of Budgeting

Budgeting can be approached using two different methods. First, a ‘Predicted’ budget could be developed (described here as an educated approximation of what the operation will cost). Then, as time progresses in a flight operation, it is possible to develop a ‘Real Costs Derived’ budget. The ‘Real Costs Derived’ method delivers accurate accounting of true costs and provides the real data to generate future budgets. When starting a budgeting exercise, it’s necessary to establish how many hours of flying are anticipated annually, and this will become the anchor of the budget. Personally, I use ‘hours contracted in the engine program’ as my annual goal for flying. Regardless of how many hours are flown in a year we are obligated to pay for the hours negotiated in the engine program contract. It is therefore important to negotiate program terms that realistically reflects the anticipated hours. If this benchmark is not part of your operation, it is possible to use other estimates (such as historical trip demands, or the remaining hours until a major maintenance event).

Operating Costs: Accurate Data Gathering

Budgeting is about accurate data gathering. The best place to start is with a list of predictable aircraft operating costs. To help, there will be existing cost benchmarks and business publications that can yield approximations from which you can begin to fill in the blanks on your fixed and variable costs. Items such as salaries and benefits are known factors within an operation. By using salary surveys among your network of contacts, it is possible to establish a competitive and balanced compensation package that eliminates turnover. You’ll also need to consider the fact that hiring and training team members has a significant impact on a healthy budget, while reducing dispatch availability. When gathering data for your operating cost budget, it’s sensible to start with the costlier items that represent the largest costs and refine later with smaller percentage cost items. So, for example, some of the first items on your fixed costs spreadsheet would be engine and fixed cost maintenance programs, salaries and benefits, hangar rental, recurrent training, and navigational databases. In the ‘variable costs’ column items should www.AVBUYER.com

include an average cost of fuel per gallon (ideally rounded to a higher amount), contract pilot allowances, and APU hourly programs.

Operating Cost: Those Hard-to-Predict Items

Naturally, there will be items in the budget that are hard to predict. Those with regular international travel needs will appreciate that international airspace permits, navigational charges, and foreign airport fees usually require ‘educated’ allocations. If I really need a clearer idea of the costs for a specific trip I tend to find an international handler that can provide one. However, since this represents one of my lower percentages in the total cost of operations, it’s acceptable to use an estimated budget allocation for this cost group. Typically, after the first year of operations, it becomes possible to establish a highly accurate, fine-tuned working budget from which a ‘true cost per hour flown’ budget can be built.

Budgeting for Upstart Operations

At least one additional spreadsheet will need to be generated for new operations: The ‘Initial Upstart’ budget is where new operations will list the cost to set up that operation. As part of this budget, items such as aircraft tooling, spare parts, heart defibrillators, cabin amenities (blankets, pillows and decorations), noise-cancelling headphones, crew iPads, and every other conceivable item needed for the operation, should be included. These are typically one-time or long-term purchases.

Different Operation, Different Budget…

I’ve analyzed budgets that were so complex I could make no practical use of the data, and I’ve seen flight departments that just kept the credit card statements and utilized a pay as you go approach. Both extremes left room for gross and negligent errors and inefficiencies. For every operation there’s a balance between how much detail is sufficient to satisfy the CFO and sustaining an accountable operation. Assuming your operation isn’t part of a public traded company (where accounting is governed by strict, legal guidelines) it’s really up to you and your CFO to decide which budgeting practice works in your operation. Budgets need to be tailored for each operation. Nevertheless, the insights above should provide the fundamentals to help ensure you get the best out of your flight operation’s budgeting process. ❚ AVBUYER MAGAZINE ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘

Supplemental Lift— What’s Best for You? Are there some business travel needs your aircraft can’t fulfil? David Wyndham explores the option of supplemental lift. What is supplemental lift, and how can you use it as an

appropriate add-on in your current aircraft operations?

S

upplemental lift may be a logical alternative to your current aircraft. As the term implies, supplemental lift is an add-on to your current operation – it is not a replacement for your current aircraft. What it does is to achieve a means of expanding your operation without adding another aircraft, extra crew, and support. It may be that you have a specific need for short-term lift if an aircraft in your operation is undergoing a major maintenance event. Or you may need extra flight hours beyond what your current aircraft can support. Alternatively, there may be several unique missions on the horizon for which your current aircraft is unsuitable. Perhaps you simply wish to bridge the gap before acquiring another aircraft as 76 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

your flight operation grows. Thankfully, there is a range of supplemental lift options available that offer a modest number of additional flight hours without the costs associated with actually owning an extra aircraft. Within this article, we will consider the following questions:

• •

What are aircraft charter, jet cards and fractional ownership? When does supplemental lift make sense?

What are Aircraft Charter, Jet Cards and Fractional Ownership?

Aircraft charter enables you to rent an aircraft for a trip. With charter, you pay the entire time the aircraft is flying (including any unoccupied i.e. www.AVBUYER.com

w


Ownership 2.qxp_Finance 21/05/2019 11:01 Page 2

AVBUYER.com

‘deadhead’ legs without you aboard). Therefore, charter costs are minimized with round-trip travel. Aircraft charter tends to work particularly well if one or more well-qualified providers operate the aircraft type you need close to your location. Jet cards are a form of pre-purchased charter. Some jet card programs are aligned with a major fractional ownership company (such as NetJets). Other providers offer a broker arrangement where they sell you the time and find the qualified operator for you. Most jet card providers offer both one-way and round-trip pricing. Fractional ownership enables you to purchase or lease a share of an aircraft in proportion to the additional flying that you plan to do. This may be a good way to bridge the gap between insufficient current aircraft availability and developing sufficient need to justify buying an additional aircraft outright. Operators who purchase a fractional share can choose to sell it back to the provider at the end of the contract. www.AVBUYER.com

O

When Does Supplemental Lift Make Sense?

As highlighted through the different options, supplemental lift can be a short- or long-term solution. The hours can vary with your needs. To illustrate, and also highlight how and when supplemental lift makes sense, following are some real-life examples. Extended Downtime: One operator I work with has an aircraft that’s almost 12 years old. They fly regularly and the aircraft is fast approaching a major maintenance check and engine overhauls. The avionics suite is outdated and the principal wants to add in-flight cabin connectivity. Additionally, the paint and interior are in need of a refresh. Having conducted a financial analysis, the operator concluded that the aircraft value prior to the work being done is lower than they would sell it for. Moreover, the cost of a newer replacement aircraft is more than they wish to spend. The plan, therefore, is for them to complete the overhauls and upgrades at the same time, with an expected downtime of at

least four months. This means a temporary solution is required that effectively replaces their aircraft for the time it will take to complete the maintenance and upgrades. An estimated 120 flight hours will be needed over those four months, and the operator has chosen aircraft charter as the right option to fulfil this demand. Fortunately, they’re located in a city with several large charter operators nearby and were able to negotiate a block of hours with a local provider with a top safety rating. Expanding Mission Need: A different corporate client recently expanded operations to a distant city and their current aircraft cannot make that trip non-stop. The client estimates flying one trip per month for approximately eight flight hours, representing a 20% increase in their flying activity. To upsize to a larger aircraft would increase the operating budget by almost 90%. The cost to buy the larger business jet is nearly three times what their current jet is worth. Over the course of a year, the client would need less than 100 hours flying a longer-range jet and their demand analysis indicates this utilization is likely to remain steady and long-term. In addition, avoiding a fuel stop on 20% of the trips wouldn’t be worth the added investment in a new, larger jet. But what if the client were to supplement their operations with added lift? The client was able to find a fractional ownership solution to meet their needs at a fraction of the cost of replacing their current aircraft. When they near the end of their current contract, they will reassess their need and budget, revisiting the question of acquiring a larger business jet. Growing Operation: One last example is of a flight operation growing at 15% per year. Corporate 78 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

projections indicate that this rate of growth will continue and there are new departments asking for use of the aircraft. In their analysis, the client’s aviation department estimates that they can meet the additional demand for the next 18–24 months by hiring a new pilot and combining a few trips each month. Acquiring another aircraft may take between six and nine months. The company hired a consultant who performed an aircraft needs analysis. The report confirmed the aviation department’s internal findings and recommended that a second aircraft be purchased within the year. The report also recommended adding supplemental lift within the next six months to maintain the department’s ability to meet trip requests without any disruption. Accordingly, they purchased a jet card offering them the additional projected flight hours. The card program includes price guarantees for 12 months with the initial purchase. Simultaneous Travel Needs: One more consideration might be the scenario where you occasionally need simultaneous aircraft. If you anticipate multiple overlapping requests for the aircraft, a supplemental option, such as a charter, jet card or fractional ownership might make sense. Next month we will continue our discussion with consideration of how to choose the right aircraft, and then manage the supplemental lift as you grow into another aircraft… ❙ David Wyndham is vice president of Conklin & de Decker, a JSSI Company, where his expertise in cost and performance analyses, fleet planning and life cycle costing are invaluable.

ollowing, we’ll consider several key productivity parameters (including payload, range, speed and cabin size) and assess the current market for the Daher TBM 930 and Beechcraft King Air C90GTx. By doing so, it is hoped that prospective buyers will form a clearer picture of which is the better option for their specific mission needs. Will a singleengine turboprop suffice, or is a twin-engine aircraft better? Learn more here…

About the Competitors

The Daher TBM 930 entered service in 2016, not to replace the TBM 900 but to provide another option for buyers. With the TBM 930, Daher added Garmin G3000 touchscreen avionics. Daher also highlights the ‘e-copilot’ feature now available on the TBM 930 that provides aural alerts to the pilot in place of sound tones.

80 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

As of this writing, there were 114 Daher TBM 930 turboprops in operation around the world, of which 110 are wholly-owned. North America accounted for the largest Daher TBM 930 fleet percentage (86%), followed by Europe (11%). Meanwhile, the Beechcraft King Air C90GTx entered service in 2010, doubling payload capability and allowing the aircraft to carry more fuel under all loading scenarios and to fly further. Extended range and improved efficiency of the King Air C90GTx are essentially down to its innovative composite winglets, which reduce drag and allow faster climb and lower fuel burn. In March 2019, there were 168 King Air C90GTx turboprops in operation, 165 of which were whollyowned. North America was home to the largest King Air C90GTx fleet percentage (42%), followed by South America (32%), then Europe and Asia (10% each) — accounting for a combined 94% of the fleet. www.AVBUYER.com

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 no t 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 www.AVBUYER.com

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 sixyear 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 th e 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act into law on December 22, 2017. Under the new Act, taxpayers may be able to deduct up to 100 percent 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 depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019-model new Daher TBM 930 in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods. Meanwhile, Table E shows an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019model new King Air C90GTx in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over fiv e- and seven-year periods.

Asking Prices & Quantity

The current used market for the Daher TBM 930 shows a total of three aircraft for sale. Two have asking prices of $3.6m and $3.725m, while for the third a price is not specified. For the King Air C90GTx, a total of seven aircraft are listed for sale, three displaying asking prices, which are between $1.9m and $2.39m. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe Total Time (AFTT) 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 E (top, right) 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. The Daher TBM 930 demonstrates a higher level of productivity than the Beechcraft King Air C90GTx, but at a higher purchase price. While the King Air C90GTx edged out the TBM 930 in terms of cabin volume and available payload with maximum fuel, the TBM 930 offers greater range and a much lower cost per mile and variable hourly costs. Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business turboprop operators value. There are other qualities such as runway performance, terminal area performance and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. Ope rators should weigh-up their mission requirements precisely when picking which aircraft is the better buy for them. The turboprops within our study are fairly well matched, but the TBM 930 owes its lower operating cost to its single powerplant. Ultimately, the choice of aircraft is likely to depend on budget constraints along with operational mission needs. ❙

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.

F

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. 88 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

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 Spring 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 Spring 2019 edition of the Bluebook show $17.5m for a 2016 model, $16.5m for a 2015 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 30 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 92

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 - 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. 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.

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.

How Much Jet Connectivity do you Really Need? What should an aircraft owner be asking when deciding which cabin connectivity solution works best for them?

How much is too much, and what are the mistakes that would lead to too little? Dave Higdon asks

Gogo’s Brian Wilson and SmartSky’s Nancy Walker…

L

ike so many business decisions, selecting the right hardware and service for your aircraft’s in-flightconnectivity (IFC) system involves questions of balance. Understanding what the aircraft can accommodate is just one of the many decisions the process involves. The ideal is to install a system capable of handling all of the demands you will place on it at the promised speed and bandwidths. Preferably this will be achieved for as little money as possible. But how do you assess what you really need and arrive at your goal?

How Much Jet Connectivity Would You Like?

Brian Wilson, director, key accounts at Gogo Business Aviation offers some insights: “The first question,” he explains, “cuts through the glitz. “When a client recently transitioned from a Beechcraft King Air to a Dassault Falcon 50, they sat down with us seeking to understand what solutions are out there. The first thing I asked them to describe is what they thought would make a great passenger experience.” Some clients will want everything – immediately – streamed to their cabin. Others might specify use of email as being important in-flight whereas watching a movie or listening to music will be secondary on their wish-list. “To do this right you need to start with a trusted advisor,” Wilson stipulates. That advisor should know which options are viable for the aircraft, the hardware options, the costs and the service options. www.AVBUYER.com

Jet Connectivity: Where Will You Fly?

While satellite systems would work as a solution virtually anywhere on the planet, these tend to use larger antennae and higheroutput hardware – so not every aircraft can accommodate all of the system options. The key question, notes Nancy Walker, chief commercial officer, SmartSky Network, is where you predominantly will fly. “Is it within the US, or do you fly – or expect to fly – a lot of over-water flying? If your flight profiles are split between over-ground and over-water, we'll recommend you look at a hybrid system.” Even if aircraft size allows the use of a satellite-based system, Walker elaborates, a hybrid system with a ground-basedconnectivity option can perform better, saving on connection costs. But if over-water international operations aren't in the equation, a system like the ground-based network of SmartSky Networks or Gogo can deliver lower costs on installation and usage. Having established what comes top of a client’s wish-list and where you need to fly, Wilson and Walker address issues common to almost all users.

How Will Your Jet Connectivity Needs Grow?

Another relevant question for selecting a new or upgraded cabin connectivity system is what you see yourself needing to do on-board the aircraft. Better still, what do you anticipate wanting to do, in the future? “We look at what's coming in the market as well as what's AVBUYER MAGAZINE ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 ❘

“So when questions of budget arise, the focus sharpens from what you’d like to have in your cabin connectivity solution, to what you really need – and how you’ll manage those costs.” available,” Walker says. “If you want to keep inflight productivity high, you need to look at a system that can fulfill current needs and handle growth in the future.”

What’s Your Jet Connectivity Budget?

The cost basis applied to using jet connectivity services often varies according to the type of use; be it texting, viewing documents and emails at the lower end of the scale, or live streaming at the upper end. In anticipating costs it’s important to forecast how much usage the system will see over the course of a year, factoring what you want your actual jet connectivity budget to achieve. Although the system will only get used while the aircraft is being operated, Wilson points out that “if the aircraft sees 500 hours of use in a year it's at the high-end of average.” And it’s not uncommon for a customer to flinch at some of the costs when first seeing them. Wilson relayed a familiar story in this ‘connected-everywhere’ age of an operator who returned from a European trip with his wife and four children and received a bill for more than $30,000 for the movies and videos the four children streamed to their personal devices throughout the flight. Technologically, delivering internet access to an aircraft requires overcoming some complex challenges. Paying for those solutions incurs 98 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

costs to the vendor predicated on usage. In a primer called ‘The anatomy of in-flight connectivity’, Gogo outlines the complexity: “From securing certifications and regulatory approvals, to providing real-time in-air customer care, network management and more, making IFC work involves more than getting an aircraft online. IFC is also about making the most of the bandwidth and making that bandwidth work for your bottom line.” For the end-user, however it's all about making a working connection every time it's needed and recovering such an expense translates into a use-based total on the bill, which is something to keep in mind when researching the available options and their various costs. So when questions of budget arise, the focus sharpens from what you’d like to have in your cabin connectivity solution, to what you really need – and how you’ll manage those costs. Each vendor uses its own formula for setting prices for basic connection, voice calls, email and text, and for streaming costs and high data-use connections. That's where the dollars really begin to stack up.

What do Users Want from Their Jet’s Connectivity?

For a question with so many variables, the answer seems blindingly simple: “They want

everything they have in the office,” explained Wilson. “Not coincidentally, that's what they get on their portable devices – their phones and tablets. Everything.” No surprise, then, that what they use on the ground is what they want to use in-flight. But for the most efficient connection, Walker notes, the ground-based options typically offer the fastest connections with the smallest latency cycles – the time it takes data to make the round trip from the sender through the system to the recipient and back to the sender. Today, in-flight connectivity is a round-trip proposition. The time signals may need to cover 45,000 miles, between the aircraft, the satellite, and back again. If the aircraft operates within the continental US, a terrestrial-based system (air-to-ground) will provide a good solution. But air-to-ground won't be a viable connection elsewhere in the world. That's satellite territory.

How Secure is the Jet Connectivity Solution?

Finally, owners and operators should consider the crucial matter of security. SmartSky protects the integrity of its 4GLTE network through dedicating connections to one client, and says its system is ready to meet the latest security protocols, which require a two-way system with low latency. A key element to SmartSky's security effort is its single beam system. “We don't share,” Walker explained. “What passes through that beam isn't shared with any other system – it's dedicated to you.” SmartSky uses antenna-beam shaping from the aircraft to the tower, with only one beam talking 100 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

to one aircraft at a time. “When we launch there will be 27,000 beams in our system and there are only 6,000 aircraft. So we have plenty of capacity.” Gogo is also hot on security. “We like to say security is built-in and not bolted-on,” Doug Young, vice president, software architecture, told AvBuyer in a recent interview. “By that, we mean every aspect of our telecom network as well as the hardware and software of the onboard systems. “Because we uniquely operate and manage our systems end-to-end, we can monitor and analyze the security of our network and onboard systems. And, through our own standards – or in partnership with the FAA and other aviation stakeholders – we’re solving cybersecurity problems before they happen.”

In Summary…

Working through the list of obvious questions, what you want and what you need can soon become two different things. Ultimately, the solution you select for your aircraft will be driven by a combination of your aircraft size and your priorities, whether budget, security or evolving needs. The wise operator will take Wilson’s tip and start the journey with a trusted advisor who understands all of the options, and how they work for their client’s aircraft. ❙ More information from https://business.gogoair.com or www.smartskynetworks.com www.AVBUYER.com

Does Cockpit Automation Impact Pilot Safety? While advancements in avionics have been phenomenal in recent years, has it impacted pilot safety? How are the airplane and avionics manufacturers ensuring pilots continue to be the integral decision-makers in the cockpit? Mario Pierobon asks the industry…

T

he pilot has always been the main decision-maker in the operation of an aircraft. Almost everything an aircraft does is commanded, one way or the other, by the pilots. According to Scott Martin, master development test pilot at Gulfstream Aerospace, “Good automation only does what a pilot tells it. It needs to be instructed

102 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

when, where and how to perform its tasks.” That is a sentiment reflected by Universal Avionics, which prioritizes ‘pilot-in-the-loop’ designs in its systems. “Failure to accommodate this issue can lead – and has led – to controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) accidents,” notes Paul Damschen, senior flight test pilot/DER, Universal Avionics. www.AVBUYER.com

efficient. “The revolutionary Symmetry Flight Deck, which is part of the all-new Gulfstream G500 and G600, is a prime example of how new automation technology lessens the workload for pilots, dramatically improving their ability to fly efficiently through an increasingly complex global air system”, says Martin. “The automation on these aircraft includes 10 touchscreens, which make it easier and more intuitive for pilots to interface with the aircraft systems. Phase-of-flight menus, for example, can be tailored on touchscreens, so pilots have what they need in front of them. You don’t have to go back to a menu page. “The improved accessibility reduces the time it takes to manage aircraft systems, further improving situational awareness,” he summarizes.

Building Equipment With Pilots in Mind

“We see a continuing need for the pilot in command to function as the pilot in command,” he adds. “Automated actions without pilot knowledge or confirmation lead to confusion and flight-deck errors. Accidents tend to be a series of dominos that have to fall in sequence, and automation should not provide an opportunity for the first domino to fall.” A spokesperson for Garmin, using one of the company’s own products to show how avionics OEMs work to ensure the pilot remains in complete control of the aircraft as the sole decision-maker at all times, explains, “In reference to the Garmin GFC 500/GFC 600/GFC 700 autopilots, checks and balances are built into the entire suite to ensure the autopilot is functioning properly at all times. “At any time, the pilot can command a full autopilot disconnect by pulling the circuit breaker or pressing and holding the autopilot disconnect button.” Only in this context can advancements in pilot workload management make flying safer and more www.AVBUYER.com

In building the equipment and simplifying the cockpit, the manufacturers need to avoid the ‘simplification into ignorance’ mode of design. “Smart design does not fail to inform the crew [and] smart design does not make decisions for the flight crew,” Damschen clarifies. “Smart design simplifies flight crew actions without masking the resulting effects of those actions.” “The Symmetry Flight Deck on the Gulfstream G500 and G600 was created through a collaboration between Gulfstream and Honeywell,” adds Martin. “This flight deck’s intelligent design leverages active control sidesticks and touchscreen technology, both of which are industry firsts. What the new design does is simplify the pilot interfaces, including replacing many knobs and switches with touchscreen controls, allowing direct interaction with the functions and displays. “We eliminated the massive control yoke in favour of a new type of sidestick control that makes the cockpit look much less cluttered, improves the view of the instrument panel displays and helps keep pilots in the control loop. The electronically connected Active Control Sidesticks optimize coordination between pilots by allowing them to see and feel each other’s actions. They create a streamlined flying experience from not only a safety standpoint, but visual and ergonomic standpoints as well.” Garmin’s spokesperson, meanwhile, clarifies that the company is always building additional features and capabilities that give pilots additional

and more, are examples of this. These do not remove the pilot from the decision-making process whatsoever…the pilot is – and always will be – inthe-loop, and will be the sole decision-maker of the aircraft.”

When Does Automation Become Too Much?

“Don’t just input the information. Know what each system is doing with each input.” information, which further enhance the decisionmaking of the pilot. “For example, we work closely with our human factors team to determine the best way to present information – big and small – so pilots can more quickly and easily interpret and respond to the information they’re receiving. A simplified presentation of flight critical information, such as traffic and its trajectory, allows pilots to efficiently respond to potential traffic threats. “Our TargetTrend technology does just that – it offers a faster, more intuitive method of judging traffic target trajectories and closure rates relative to own-ship position.” Garmin continues to add tools in the cockpit that streamline the decisionmaking process in-flight and on the ground. “Enhancing situational awareness through synthetic vision, traffic and weather in the cockpit 104 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

For flight departments that do not properly familiarize with it, automation can quickly become too much. Indeed, the level of technology that we can digest, and our expectations of technology, have changed dramatically in the past twenty years. “When flight management systems first became available, the notion of remote area navigation (RNAV) capability was remarkable unto itself,” says Damschen. “Now it is commonplace and expected. Now we expect instrument landing system (ILS)-like approach capability almost everywhere in the world using satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS). “The question of what constitutes too much automation varies by the flight crew,” he adds. “But the effects can be measured to a degree, and that occurs when the flight crew asks the question ‘why is the airplane doing that?’ “So as designers we have the challenge to ensure that doesn’t occur, while at the same time balancing that against the need to provide a lower level of workload. As time progresses, a continued level of systems knowledge must be maintained. Continuing education in recurrent training is critical and shouldn’t be treated merely as a checkbox task,” Damschen concludes. “Too much automation is when pilots stop paying attention in their training and don’t take it seriously enough to know what automation can do for them,” Martin highlights. “You can only automate something by programming it; therefore, you should know the ins and outs of automation. “Don’t just input the information. Know what each system is doing with each input. Flight departments should ensure, particularly with newer members, that their pilots have mastered handflying an airplane and maintain that proficiency. It’s certainly important to know how to hand fly an airplane, but it’s equally important to embrace the qualities of airmanship – command, leadership and discipline. “Practical experience and those qualities enable a pilot to have the decision-making ability – the judgement – needed on the job,” he concludes. Ultimately, the message is clear. Automation familiarization is important as it helps pilots ‘stay ahead’ of the airplane and better understand what to expect from it. “When a pilot doesn’t feel comfortable with the automation or technology in the cockpit, it’s up to him or her as pilot-incommand to get with another pilot or instructor until they become comfortable and fluent with the aircraft”, concludes the Garmin spokesperson. ❙ www.AVBUYER.com

What’s the Future of Avionics? (Part 1)

Over several articles Ken Elliott will take us on a reversed time journey from the future back to the present, covering the evolution of avionics from different perspectives. What will his timeline reveal...?

B

ecause of lessons learned and a reluctance to disturb the natural order, it is likely this crystal ball perspective on the future of avionics will be more predictable, despite an endless amount of possibilities. The evolution of avionics is subject to intense regulatory oversight as with all-things-aviation, where close attention is given to safety. Other influences on avionics development include economies of scale, human factors, redundancy and maintaining relevancy. Stepping into the future and looking back, the time traveler may see a relatively straight line of regression from a point where the aircraft is flown by an external command, to everything being controlled by pilots from within. Further observation would reveal a gradual transition of hands-on piloting to no pilots. Along

106 ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘ AVBUYER MAGAZINE

the way there would emerge a greater reliance on performance monitoring, followed by a transition to remote, indirect use of pilots before embracing flight with no pilots in the loop. Because changes in aviation are cautious and deliberate, predicting outcomes in avionics should unfold a logical sequence of events. Change will have occurred at a steady pace, with a pause at every major event that calls safety into question.

Projecting the Future Now

To understand the future, we will need to look at some of the challenges faced today and look at aviation’s leading edge. One challenge is overcrowded airspace, made worse by a growing world population equipped with increasing economic clout. Aside from safety, and within the scope of solving that problem, is pressure to automate and

fly aircraft in closer formation, while reducing the margin of error in the flight track. As for leading edge technology, we must look across three main areas, including:

the other two communities. This is partially because the immediate need of this mode of flight is to carry people and cargo in urban environments, albeit mostly below 4,000ft of altitude.

• • •

The Internet of Things

Unmanned aircraft eVTOL (manned and unmanned) Airliners and business jets (along with some military applications that may trickle down).

When you carry people and cargo, you incur additional scrutiny from regulators and that implies extremely reliable and capable technological applications. Within the unmanned world and, to a lesser extent, the emerging eVTOL market, there are innovative commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies in play. But once you need to carry people or cargo or operate above 4,000ft, these less robust flight solutions don’t cut it. You need only sit through a day at the ‘RTCA SC228 Minimum Operational Performance Standards for Unmanned Aircraft’ sub-committee and follow-up with a visit to an unmanned aircraft convention to realize the ocean of differences between the standards that each of these aviation communities promotes. As a group, eVTOL seems to have a more realistic approach that brings together elements of

One major societal development that will facilitate a rapid transition to meet the anticipated future is the Internet of Things (IoT). This is where connectivity occurs super-fast and at extremely high rates of data. The Cloud, associated with IoT, is a virtual sorting center that – for avionics – becomes a substitute for all those onboard avionics boxes carried today. Airborne sensors will still be required, but with information converted into transferable raw data at the sensor. The data collected by all the sensors is grouped at zonal nodes before being passed to a central node for onward transfer to a dedicated Cloud site. Equally, but in reverse, the same dedicated Cloud site will, in turn, transfer command information back to the node. This central node then parses out the relevant bytes of data and operates the mechanisms that steer the aircraft. Figure A (above) demonstrates the difference between the present and a future where communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS), now within the piloted aircraft, will give-way to a

How to Create Redundancy in the Aviation Space

Airlines have an edge on business jet operators when it comes to analyzing the status of their aircraft during flight. While there is some catch-up going on, because they operate larger fleets the airlines have a solid business case to keep a close eye on the performance of their aircraft. Today, using satellites, modern airliners use onboard sensors that send status data back to airline operations centers. Taking this to the next level, and beyond maintenance/reliability tracking, this data can be used as the feedback loop in a perfect circle of data command and monitoring in future aircraft. This feedback informs a new command sent back to the aircraft to correct for any difference in actual versus desired flight. Figure B (left) shows the audio-visual tactile world of today’s pilot, monitoring the status of an aircraft in flight. This is compared to a future where hundreds of minute sensors, each mounted at the source, provide a combined set of data out. Future

monitoring and decision-making are completed outside of the aircraft. Not shown and mounted with the sensors (or part of them) are the servo mechanisms needed to transfer data into physical movement. Autopilots use a similar process today. Redundancy is achieved by replacing the need for onboard audio-visual alerts with virtual Cloudbased instructions derived from the source of these alerts. The future alerts become the impetus for a constantly-adjusted remote command to an unmanned vehicle. Today an aircraft is bombarded with data, including recently-introduced ATC datalink in place of existing voice communications. The data originates from its onboard sensors, other aircraft, ATC and via satellites or ground stations. In effect, these sources form a triad of players involved in any flight. From a purely aircraft perspective, a future platform may receive one complex word as a digital command, and in turn transmit another as feedback. Blended with the back-and-forth-data will be other aircraft and ATC datalinks, sent via dedicated Cloud channels. Figure C (above) shows the simplicity of a ‘single complex word’ data transaction. Because of its simplicity, both speed and the density of data can be increased between the anticipated increase in aircraft traffic volume.

TODAY Pilot(s) onboard

A Cautious Approach to the Future

Because of the crucial need for safety – and in turn reliability – many baby-steps must be taken between our current now and the ‘now of the future’. The now of the future assumes an absence of onboard pilots. It assumes a completely autonomous aircraft that carries people, cargo or mission sensors. This flying machine will operate in all axes, changing its state of flight in an instant. So, viewing the evolution of aircraft backwards, it is likely we will have allowed fully-autonomous flight, after deliberative trial and error. For quite some time ahead, active manned flights will be necessary for take-off and landing, at a minimum. After a lengthy period of onboard pilots in a monitoring role, remote pilots will eventually take over. Figure D (above) shows simplistically h ow, viewed in reverse, the pilot gradually assumes less of a hands-on role.

Truly Outside the Box (but Not Really)

Going outside the box of traditional aircraft designs and their performance, we need to envision and assume that future flight platforms will be closer to the flying saucer than the flying tubes and rotorcraft of today. Again, unmanned and eVTOL are leading the way in how this may all transpire. Given the assumed exceptional maneuverability

of future aircraft, this allows for a much greater responsiveness to trajectory commands. It assumes aircraft can fly inside a virtual ‘globe of defined airspace’. Here is where, if commanded, it can maneuver anywhere within that space, equidistant from other traffic. Interestingly, the virtual inside-surface of the sphere is to be a time-shaped structure. ATC will require aircraft to arrive at specific points in a defined 3D spatial area at specific times. Each aircraft’s trajectory commands will therefore be constantly adjusted to allow the aircraft to remain inside its ‘bubble’. Factors such as weather, air mass conditions, aircraft weight and balance, etc., will pull and stretch the virtual globe, defining its actual shape as anything from a misshapen mes s to a perfect sphere. The complete amended airspace model, created for each aircraft, also is representative of predictive flight, a powerful tool in aviation’s future. Furthermore, an internal, secondary ‘globe of space’ may act as a protective bubble for each aircraft while in flight. This is the bubble that no other traffic may penetrate, and each aircraft will have its own. Anything that could potenti ally enter the protective bubble of this airspace globe will be closely monitored and, just like with TCAS 7.1 today, each vehicle will be commanded to avoid the other.

AVBUYER.com Fig E: Maneuverability in a 4D Airspace

An ability to fly equidistantly with respect to other traffic within a 3D sphere of space in a constantly adjusted, real-time 4D trajectory maneuver.

Maneuvered by a single complex word command that has no latency and is adjusted constantly: A dynamic 4D steering command with variable rate and speed control.

An aircraft platform that can maneuver with 4 dimensions (3D space + time).

Figure E (above) outlines maneuverability within 4D airspace, using a trajectory command that is dynamic in direction, speed and ‘rate of change’. Modern autopilots use a combined steering command that uses both vertical and roll instructions, varying at a rate necessary to satisfy the difference between the command and positional feedback from the auto-flight servo. In essence, we already have the future now, but it is immature and bulky, just like the avionics of earlier days, when vacuum tubes and clunky moving parts were employed. Figure E does not show the secondary protective bubble because it lies somewhere within the primary predictive flightsphere that is shown.

Ten Demands on Avionics

In future articles the various demands on avionics to meet its future will be explored. This will be in the context of what we have available to us today. There are at least ten demands, as follows: 1. Minimal latency (time delay in sending and receipt of data). 2. No RF Interference. 3. Tamper/hack-proofing. 4. Ability to handle huge amounts of data simultaneously. 5. Subject to wide-scope system safety analysis. 6. Subject to broad function hazard analysis.

GOAL - To arrive at fixed 3D point in space at a specific time, constantly adjusted for nearby traffic, weather and other predictive factors. There are multiple 3D target points along the flight path.

7. Interoperability. 8. Redundancy. 9. Not reliant on single data sources (such as satellites). 10. Complex command and feedback algorithms. All of these are important and apply at different levels of the wider aviation community. One demand, ‘Redundancy’, refers to a need for back-up systems. It will take intense scrutiny of both functional hazards and systems safety to mitigate the need for back-up in tomorrow’s complex aircraft. This is especially so when applied to aircraft operating as ‘carriage for reward’. In a similar vein, the reliance on single technologies and signal sources is of increasing concern. These and other demands are the factors that need resolution. How that evolves will determine the actual date for the ‘future now’ to arrive. ❚

Cirrus SF50 Vision Jets Grounded by FAA

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has grounded the worldwide fleet of Cirrus SF50 Vision Jets, following reported issues with the aircraft’s angle of attack (AoA) sensors.

A

ccording to an emergency airworthiness directive (AD) issued by the FAA on April 18, three separate incidents involving the SF50’s stall warning and protection system (SWPS) or electronic stability and protection (ESP) system, were automatically triggered at the wrong time, causing the aircraft to pitch downwards. The incidents all occurred between November 2018 and April 2019. In each of the three reported cases, the FAA says that the pilots flying the aircraft during the time of the incidents received stall warnings, as well as stick shaker and

other associated alerts. Aerosonic, the manufacturer of the AoA sensors, alongside Cirrus have identified a possible cause of the malfunction, saying that two sets of screws could be at fault. The FAA says that until the AoA sensors are replaced with improved AoA sensors, all SF50s are grounded. Operators that need to fly their aircraft to be repaired will need to apply for a special flight permit. At the time of going to press AvBuyer had no updated information. Worldwide, there are over 100 Vision Jets in service. More information from www.cirrusaircraft.com

VistaJet Launches VistaPet

VistaJet, a leading global business jet charter operator, recently launched VistaPet, which they say is the most comprehensive program designed to ensure all passengers, even those with four legs, feel welcome. The company says it has seen a 104% increase in animals flown in the last two years and that a quarter of all its passengers fly with their loyal companions. VistaJet say most pet owners distrust airline care of their pets, and so, VistaPet was conceived in collaboration with experienced veterinary practitioners, groomers, and dietitians to respond to the need and challenges when traveling with animals. This new offering includes care kits, sleep mats and balanced menus www.vistajet.com AVBUYER MAGAZINE ❘ Vol 23 Issue 6 2019 ❘

NEW AVANTI EVO

AirGO AOC Package

©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 CABIN • VIP 6 Seat Cabin Arrangement in your color specifications 4 single passenger seats in club arrangement with extra wide space & Dual executive tables, 2 single side-facing seats in front & power outlets • Big refreshment center and additional cabinet • Fully enclosed lavatory, sink with water system and wardrobe

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.
