Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT Jim Allmon, Blackhawk Aerospace

For the Love of Turboprops rowing up, like most of you I would look to the sky every time an airplane flew over. I still do. But of course, the sight of a Learjet flying over was always a special treat. Back then, all corporate jets were “Learjets” to me. Once I became a pilot, my dream was to fly jets, any jet, it didn’t matter which. Eventually, I achieved my dream and flew a Learjet 24D for a few years. What a ride! There was nothing like tooling along at FL450 on a beautiful winter day doing 0.82 Mach, turning a lot of jet fuel into vapor! I felt like I had arrived. Then the day came that I got a King Air check out. I loved the airplane immediately; its simplicity, its solid feel and its roominess compared to the ‘executive mailing tube’ of the Lear 24 and the Citation 500. I was impressed with the ramp appeal which towered over the small jets; that huge air stair door that – when you stood at the top – enabled you to literally look down on other aircraft on the ramp. I loved the design of the PT6 engine that made bird FOD a near impossibility. The turboprop often gets overlooked by those distracted by the glitz and glam of the ‘private jet’ lifestyle - and who could blame them? Movies and TV have led us to believe that private jets are the crème de la crème of travel. But in my opinion the allure dwindles when you consider a jet’s limitations (not to mention the optics of flying around in a private jet in today’s volatile political environment). Turboprops, especially those with the Blackhawk upgrade, deliver elite performance and functionality at an economic value that comparable sized jets can’t match.

G

The Turboprop you Know, The Performance You’ll Love

The reduced operating costs of a King Air have always been their main advantage over a jet. Even so, they’re so much slower, right? Even the old Citation 500 was faster than most turboprops in the 1970s and 1980s. But with a range of only around 800nm it was also limited on what it could carry. Eventually Beechcraft came up with a solution to compete with the Citation series. The King Air 300/350 would bring the turboprop market back to life with a vengeance. Suddenly there was a 300+ knot airplane that could carry eight people, plus baggage, more than 1,200nm in four hours or less. I challenge you to name a Light Jet or even a Midsize Jet that can do that today at the same cost. Yet, as

great as the King Air 350 is, Blackhawk made it even better. The Blackhawk 350 upgrade includes factory-new PT6A-67A engines as well as new MT 5-blade composite propellers. Not only does this power pairing allow your King Air 350 to climb to FL350 in just 18 minutes (something many jets cannot do), it also delivers jet-like speeds at turboprop costs. With the XP67A, your King Air 350 now boasts a maximum cruise speed of over 332kts, making it the world’s fastest King Air. At full fuel, your King Air 350 with -67A engines can carry 62% more weight than a Citation CJ2, and it can do so with a more spacious cabin. King Airs can safely operate on far shorter runways, allowing access to many more airports giving you more flexibility to get closer to your destination, saving you time and money.

Economic Considerations

The cost-saving advantages of the turboprop hold true with the Blackhawk upgrade. Purchasing a pre-owned aircraft, you might initially spend more on an upgraded King Air 350, but the higher acquisition cost is negated by a savings of about $210k per year in operating costs compared to most similarly sized jets. Reduced fuel consumption, lower ramp fees, lower insurance costs, and much lower maintenance costs are just some of the benefits. And finally, we come to resale value. Engines are the primary value center of turboprops and jets alike. An XP67A King Air 350 holds its resale value well. To highlight this, our STC test plane was a 1991 King Air 350 that sold for $3.3m after the upgrade!

Final Approach

At the end of the day, there will always be those who just want to fly a jet, regardless of the cost. But for many savvy operators, I would argue that the King Air will always be the best airplane ever built. ❙

Business Aviation Market Overview With Business Aviation’s biggest convention just around the corner, Rollie Vincent, editor, Market Indicators checks the pulse of the Business Aviation marketplace…

W

ith NBAA-BACE 2019 approaching, October 2019 will be remembered for all of the camaraderie, airplane deal-making, and new product and service announcements that only such an industry-spanning event can inspire. On many people’s minds will be whether this can be the venue for one or another OEM to launch a new business aircraft to capture the attention – and grab a share of the wallets – of prospective customers. Our guess? Yes!

ADS-B Compliance: The Grim Reaper Looms

As the December 31, 2019 deadline looms large for aircraft owners and operators to achieve ADS-B Out compliance to maintain their privilege of operating in most US airspace, the number of business jets and turboprops that have yet to be modified remains jaw-dropping, at least to some in the industry. On September 12, US-based MRO specialist Duncan Aviation reported that 23% of the US-registered business jet fleet - totalling almost 3,400 aircraft - were still non-compliant, despite the deadline looming like Halloween’s Grim Reaper in a post-harvest corn field. This time, however, the scythe is real. The story amongst N-registered business turboprops is 22  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

bleaker still, with almost half the fleet (about 3,800 machines) not on a path for year-end compliance. There are less than 90 days remaining in the calendar year, and clearly there is not the capacity to close the gap, leaving many chunks of aluminium exposed to the swinging steel scythe – an opportunity for furniture makers working with polished airfoil (or, as they say somewhat more elegantly in Britain “aerofoil”) and fuselage shapes. US President Abraham Lincoln once said, “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” This is no doubt a sentiment echoed by the good folks at Duncan Aviation and others in the MRO community, who will be keeping the lights on every evening until year-end in the hopes of serving last-minute ADS-B Out shoppers.

The Secret of the Aging Fleet

A deep, dark secret in many corners of the business aircraft marketplace is that an argument can certainly be made that it is high time to take a lot of this old aluminium out of circulation; if not to put out in the trash then at least into the great recycling bin of life. An analysis of more than 60 years of business aircraft www.AVBUYER.com

The results from 2018 were likely ‘juiced’ by the initial year of US tax cuts and changes to rules allowing 100% depreciation on pre-owned aircraft for the first time. And complicating matters is a recent shift in the mood of the owner/operator community.

Market Optimism Continues to Wane

deliveries recorded by JETNET reveals that, on average, about half of business jets are still in service some 43 years after initial delivery. For business turboprops, half of the fleet is still active 48 years after leaving the factory door. To put those numbers into some perspective, the average age of the business jet fleet worldwide in mid-2019 was 17.4 years, while the turboprop fleet average was 23.6 years, suggesting that these fleets still have very long lives ahead of them. Aircraft owners, their trusted A&Ps, and a vast network of MRO shops have proven time and again that there surely is long life after C- and D-checks, despite the inevitable dual headwinds of economic and technical obsolescence.

Improving Book-to-Bill, Slipping Used Sales

As the numbers roll in and we evaluate the state of the markets at the end of Q3 2019, the large business aircraft OEMs have been enjoying a solid sales year, with book-to-bills above 1.0 for the year-to-date (YTD) through August. This is indeed welcome news after several years of flat-to-declining order backlogs. The total value of backlogs has increased 7% since the beginning of the year. On the other hand, pre-owned business jet transactions as measured by retail sales and leases of whole aircraft continue to lag significantly below last year’s pace, down about 20% Yearover-Year (YoY) on a YTD basis. While some of this year’s shortfall is due to limited inventory quality available for sale, other factors such as a tough YoY comparable are also in play. www.AVBUYER.com

Sentiment amongst respondents to JETNET iQ’s Q3 2019 Survey was down for the fifth consecutive quarter, with net optimism slipping to 18%, well below its average score as measured over the past eight years and its lowest point in almost 12 quarters. Concerns about the potential for a global economic slowdown have been mounting, with more than 65% of respondents voicing a yay/nay opinion suggesting that there is an increasing risk of global recession in the next 12 months. Business Aviation powerhouses including Italy, Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa are perilously close to economic recession, while the outlook for the US, China, Canada and other nations in the Euro Area in 2019 has also deteriorated. With the UK mired in a near-farcical Parliamentary crisis of its own curious doing, the English Channel separating Great Britain from Europe seems to be inexorably widening, to cries of “Mind the Gap!” and a cacophony of somewhat less polite expressions emanating from the other side of la Manche.

Meanwhile, far from the Madding Crowd…

Attendees of the 2019 NBAA-BACE will once again be dazzled by the glitter, bright lights, powerful spirits, and spectacular entertainment that only Las Vegas seems able to provide. Although 2019 is unlikely to break any attendance records given the dampened mood in many markets, NBAA-BACE is the place to be for anyone seriously considering a new or preowned business aircraft purchase. What better place to meet business acquaintances and colleagues, even if they live in your same neighbourhood or town? What better place to see and touch the hardware, experience the latest in cabin and cockpit technologies, and meet the finest business airplane sales professionals on the planet? Even without an announcement about a new business jet, Vegas will be the place to be and to be seen in October 2019. MI www.navigating360.com

Flight Activity - North America For H1 2019, North American flight activity has already proven that 2019 will chart its own course, notes ARGUS TRAQPak. Reflecting on the early part of the year, these were the key trends… Between January to the end of June, ARGUS recorded three positive months and three negative months in terms of North American flight activity. Strong growth was recorded in the fractional segment, negative growth in the Part 135 segment and slight gains were recorded for the Part 91 activity. Specifically, after moving towards a cooling trend in 2018, the Part 135 segment has spent all of 2019 in the red as each of the six months have declined from 2018. The Fractional industry, on the other hand, has produced yearly gains during all six months of 2019. The Part 91 segment has also been mostly positive in 2019 with gains in four of the six months. Overall, for H1 2019 flight activity in North America was up 0.3% from 2018 while flight hours rose 0.7% for the same period. Unsurprisingly, fractional activity reported the strongest mid-year gain of all the categories, and was up 6.2% during H1 2019. Part 91 flight activity was up 0.7%, while Part 135 flight activity was down 2.2% for the period.

– December of 2019 will rise by 2% (compared to the same period in 2018). Activity is anticipated to rise during five of the six remaining months. August is the only month that is forecast to decline from 2018, with an expected decrease of 0.7%. The strongest month is expected to be September, with a forecasted increase of 4.6%, followed by December (anticipated to rise 3.3%). November is third with an expected gain of 2.4%, followed by October and July which are projected to show increases of 1.7% and 1.0% respectively. MI www.argus.aero

A Projection for H2 2019

Looking ahead, after a relatively flat H1 2019, TRAQPak analysts are expecting flight activity to increase during H2 2019. TRAQPak analysts estimate that flight activity from July

Flight Activity – Europe European business jet departures continued their downward trend. August’s totals were down by 10,000 departures compared to July, according to WingX Advance. Activity in August was down by 2.3%, YoY… With activity trending down -1.9% so far for 2019, only Spain has shown growth for the year. During August, Germany, the UK, Italy and Switzerland all saw YoY declines of between 6% and 10%. On the positive side, Greece, Austria, Turkey and Russia saw increases over the previous August. Flights from Russia into Europe saw a strong boost, while domestic European activity slipped 2.4%. Overall, the Light to Mid-size Jet sector was down 4% in August, with declines of 11% and 8% in Germany and the UK, respectively. The Ultra-Long-Range and Large Cabin jet segments rose YoY in August, with flights up by 3%. “August rounded off a slower summer than last year, and flights were down by 2%. But Europe was still busier than other

summers since the 2009 crisis,” said Richard Koe, Managing Director, WingX. “The overall decline is due to a prolonged dip in light aircraft activity, especially owner and private missions,” he added. MI www.wingx-advance.com page 28

AMSTAT Q2 2019 Market Report Overall, 4% of the business jet fleet and 3.5% of the turboprop fleet turned over in H1 2019 versus 4.9% and 4% during H1 2018, according to AMSTAT… The overall inventory of aircraft has also increased over the last 12 months and today 9.4% of the business jet fleet, and 7.5% of the turboprop fleet, is for sale.

Pre-Owned Transactions by Age Segments

Heavy Jets: Resale retail transaction activity in all age segments underperformed in the H1 2019 versus H1 2018. The greatest YoY slowing was in the Mid-Age (11-20 years) segment, where 6.1% of the fleet sold in H1 2018 versus 4% in H1 2019. By contrast the Newer segment (<10 years) saw H1 performance slow from 3.7% of the fleet selling in 2018 to 2.9% in 2019. Medium Jets: Similarly, this segment saw a lower percentage of the fleet transacting in H1 2019 as compared to H1 2018. The greatest slowdown was in the newer (<10 years) segment, where 3.6% of the fleet sold in H1 2018 versus 2.3% during the same period in 2019. Light Jets: The newer (<10 years) segment fared better than its newer larger sized compatriots, and 4% turned over in H1 2019, essentially the same as the 4.1% in H1 2018. Turboprops: The older and mid-age segments under performed in H1 2019 versus H1 2018. By contrast the newer (<10 years) segment saw 3.5% of the fleet turn over, akin to the performance for H1 2018.

Six Predictions to Shape the Market in 2020 Monarch Air Group sees a series of trends that are starting to loom on the horizon and serve as talking points for leading players in Business Aviation… Monarch notes the private jet market is changing. Following are six predictions the aircraft charter provider offers for 2020:

1. A move towards on-demand charter:

The on-demand charter market (i.e., the pay-as-you-go model that doesn’t require a membership or block hour purchase) will take on even greater momentum in the industry. Larger players in the market are taking active steps towards it, evidenced through the acquisitions of JetSmarter by Vista Jet; Travel Management by Wheels Up; and PrivateFly by Directional Aviation during 2019.

2. ‘Departure’ from Mid-size jets:

Bombardier has stopped the production of the Learjet 60XR; Textron isn’t reviving the Hawker 800/900 series; and the same is true for the Gulfstream G150. Why? The efficiency of other Super Mid-size Jets that are now available. “The direct hourly operating costs of many of the Super Mid-size [Jets], not counting cost of capital, depreciation and other fixed expenses such as crew training and pay, is getting close to that of the Mid-size [Jets],” notes David Gitman, president, Monarch Air Group.

3. Accessibility:

For the past decade, accessibility has continued to grow in Business Aviation – and should continue to do so. Private flight is reaching new audiences thanks to its efficiency and flexibility, allowing small and medium-size companies to understand the value of using Business Aviation, saving money compared to scheduled airline flights.

4. Growth in BRICS economies:

Referring to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, large countries with major emerging economies, private aviation serves as a special link to a somewhat underdeveloped airline ecosystem, with gaps in itineraries and infrastructure. Manufacturers, operators and brokers alike are establishing important ties within these highly populated economies, where the wealthy have very high incomes.

Broker Sees Double-digit Gains in Charter Activity

5. eVTOL:

Electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft are things of the distant future, right? Maybe not. For 2020 it will be on the private aviation agenda. OEMs including Bell and Embraer want to make it a reality, and it’s a concept that would work best for short-range or urban flights, especially for cities with high concentration of auto-traffic and skyscrapers. Infrastructure and regulatory matters need to go hand in hand with investment for safer and efficient aircraft.

6. Sustainability:

Stakeholders are demanding a greener stance and rewarding with loyalty. Brand values today affect consumer behavior and for aviation it’s no different. More efficient airplanes, less noise and investment in electric research is shaping the future of aviation. Improving aircraft efficiencies will help reduce the carbon footprint, as leading executive aviation players Gulfstream, Bombardier and Cessna are pursuing — including teaming with operators to determine more efficient flight plans that will reduce fuel burn. Sustainability comes in different sizes and packages – and will continue to do so in 2020. MI www.monarchairgroup.com

New Flight Charters saw YoY business jet charter activity increases of 16.1% in July and 11.5% in the May-to-July period. Among New Flight's aircraft categories, demand for Super

Mid-size and Large Cabin jets grew 34% in H1 2019. Light jet demand grew 33% in the period “at the expense of Mid-size jets,” while turboprop demand was nearly flat. MI www.newflightcharters.com

BizJet Sales Lack Safety Net of Last Recession While the last downturn following the 2008 financial crisis was a ‘doozy’ with annual shipments plummeting from 1,300 to under 700, aviation analyst Brian Foley considers what could be in store in the next downturn... Business jet building is not a highvolume industry, meaning that every jet delivery counts. Complicating matters is that there are too many manufacturers offering a combined 41 business jet models, all vying for their piece of the limited 700 unit-per-year pie. This includes five primary jet manufacturers — Bombardier, Textron Aviation's Cessna, Dassault Falcon, Embraer and General Dynamics' Gulfstream —as well as another five niche players. Oversupply and tough competition have long been the norm. “Things could have been much worse during the last industry downturn had it not been for a key support element – the continued strength of emerging markets,” Brian Foley notes. “As the economic health of developed countries cratered, emerging markets helped to keep the lights on.” Fast forward to today and that international backstop is now missing, Foley notes. “Weak commodity prices, particularly oil, have hit places like Brazil and Argentina hard. Sanctions hobble Russia, while a weak economy and a government crackdown on all things ostentatious made China hit the brakes on private aircraft purchases. “Likewise, the Middle East jet market has been in flux for a number of reasons including Saudi Arabia's corruption crackdown,” he adds. Therefore, Foley believes there is no world region today that could sustain current business jet delivery levels should markets again decline. With several forecasts predicting a US economic slowdown beginning in a year or two, it's unlikely that emerging markets will have enough time to

recover to again act as a backstop, he reasons. “Fortunately, it's very unlikely that the next industry downturn will be as cataclysmic as the last, when deliveries halved. Instead, a 10%-20% correction is more within reason,” Foley projects. “This is lower than typical downturns of 30% or more, but each of those was preceded by a multi-year spike in deliveries. In contrast now, deliveries have been flat for the past decade.” Still, even at this reduced magnitude a drop would still bring today's 700-odd unit deliveries down into the 600s or possibly even mid-500s per year, making that pie even more coveted in an overcrowded market.

For the first time in five months, fleet asset quality improved, albeit by only 0.32%. Maintenance Exposure followed suit, falling (improving) by 0.6%. Overall, our tracked inventory registered the following figures: Quality Rating: While an improvement over July’s 12-month worst figure, August’s fleet Rating was still below the 12month average but within the ‘Very Good’ range after increasing from 5.165 to 5.181 on our scale of -2.5 to 10. Maintenance Exposure: The figure was only marginally better than the 12-month average, as Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) decreased (improved) to $1.44m from last month’s $1.45m. .

Asset Insight’s monthly market analysis covering 96 fixed-wing models and 1,714 aircraft listed for sale, conducted on August 31, 2019 revealed yet another 1.2% increase to the tracked inventory fleet (21 units)… On top of the 40 unit increase during the previous two months. Large Jet inventory increased 0.8%, Medium Jets increased 1.2%, Small Jets, the only group to experience a fleet decrease, receded 0.7% in August, and Turboprops increased by 5.9%.

The ETP Ratio is a useful indicator of an aircraft’s marketability. It is computed by dividing the asset's Maintenance Exposure (the financial liability accrued with respect to future scheduled maintenance events) by its Ask Price. ‘Days on Market’ analysis has shown that when the ETP Ratio is greater than 40%, a listed aircraft’s time on the market increases, usually by more than 30%. During Q2 2019, assets whose ETP Ratio was 40% or more were listed for sale 71% longer (on average) than aircraft whose Ratio was below 40% (226 versus 386 Days on Market). August’s analytics also revealed that more than 52% of all tracked models, and nearly 60% of Asset Insight’s tracked fleet, posted an ETP Ratio greater than 40%. As we closed out August, the tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio improved, falling to 66.8% from July’s 68.3%, with all but Small Jet involvement. Turboprops led the way by posting the lowest (best) ETP Ratio at 55.9%, although the figure was just shy of the record

highest (worst) Ratio posted by this group. Large Jets were next at 57.3%, an improvement over last month and better than the group’s 12-month average. Small Jets followed at 72%, a slight worsening from July’s 71.5%, while Medium Jets experienced the largest change by improving to 73.6% from July’s 77.3%, although the figure still poses serious challenges for sellers in that space.

‘Outstanding’ range due to fewer maintenance items coming due near-term – although those upcoming events are likely to be a bit more expensive. While the group’s ETP Ratio is not low, it does provide ample room for buyers and sellers to structure mutually beneficial deals – especially if the seller has the aircraft’s engines enrolled on an Hourly Cost Maintenance Program.

Market Summary

Medium Jets: Medium Jet behavior continues to defy logic, as the group’s 73.6% ETP Ratio for August resulted primarily from a 4.6% Ask Price increase that created a 12-month high figure. The group’s Ask Price has increased 14.6% during the past twelve months, and 13.8% during 2019, even though inventory has increased 4.9% since December (24 units). While analytics revealed that actual transaction values were 14.1% lower than Ask Prices during Q2, the continued upward pricing trend should make at least some sellers happy.

Ask Prices rose for the second consecutive month, with August’s figure exceeding the 12-month average, even though Small Jets and Turboprops posted lower figures. By virtue of another increase to our tracked fleet, the inventory has expanded by 123 units (7.7%) since December. Large Jets: The listed fleet increased by three units, and the latest inventory mix pushed the group’s Quality Rating further into the

Small Jets: Virtually on the other end of the spectrum we find the Small Jet group. Through its fourth consecutive Quality Rating decrease, the group just managed to stay within the ‘Very Good’ range, although the 5.076 Rating represented a 12-month low figure. Maintenance Exposure was virtually unchanged during August, but ‘Ask Price’ hit a 12-month low, dropping 1.6% for the month, and 6% since December. As if things could not get any worse, the listed fleet has expanded by 67 units (14.1%) during the year and with many seriously old aircraft populating the ‘for sale’ pool, sellers of such units must locate buyers willing to chance becoming the asset’s final owner.

December. We continue to point out that higher quality assets are the ones trading, and sellers of such aircraft were the ones that benefited in August. However, a slight decrease in the fleet’s ETP Ratio, when combined with other factors, would seem to indicate that at least some higher quality, departing assets were replaced with units of equal stature, so both buyers and sellers can still benefit, assuming they know how to distinguish between low price and good value.

Industry Insiders’ Q2 2019 Used Jet Market Update Dave Higdon pieces together the picture

of the current used aircraft sales marketplace, sharing the insights of those well placed to read the various indicators…

hen GAMA released its Q2 2019 assessment of new aircraft deliveries, market observers got a surprise. In contrast to some expectations for slower sales of new business jets, GAMA’s report showed an increase. For turboprop OEMs the news wasn't so good, and sales came up short of 2018 levels. Meanwhile, the pre-owned business aircraft sales market already shows signs of slowing while, counter intuitively, prices seem to hold firm in a market pool where almost one in 10 aircraft is available for sale – up about a percentage point from a year ago. Last year was a strong one for sales of used jets, according to Rolland Vincent, with over 2,800 transactions (about 2% more than in 2017). At that level, he adds, transactions of pre-owned jets beat

W

shipments of new business jets by a 4:1 factor. That level of sales activity reflected a healthy market where transactions equated to about 12.9% of the in-service business jet fleet. From the start of 2019, used business jet sales have shown signs of a slow deceleration, and are on a pace to equal about 2,000 transactions (~28% below last year’s level), according to some forecasters. And looking ahead to any threat of an industry downturn, Brian Foley, of Brian Foley Associates, projects “…it's very unlikely that the next industry downturn will be as cataclysmic as the last, when deliveries halved. Instead, a 10-20% correction is more within reason. “This is lower than typical downturns of 30% or more, but each of those were preceded by a multiyear spike in [new aircraft] deliveries. In contrast www.AVBUYER.com

now, deliveries have been flat for the past decade.”

Equipment, Age & Equipment

For the time being, declining used aircraft sales may reflect age and equipment issues applicable to an array of otherwise capable and affordable aircraft. Surprisingly, conversations with corporate pilots, air traffic controllers and dealers and brokers, indicate some business aircraft never received the equipment upgrade needed to use RVSM airspace. The owners of those aircraft largely decided their flying didn't warrant the expense of equipping to use the higher flight levels of RVSM airspace. While they continue to enjoy access to the national airspace system, they can't access the airspace above FL290. www.AVBUYER.com

And then on January 1, 2020, the FAA mandate for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) compliance comes into effect for access to the same airspace where the agency already requires Mode C. (That's pretty much all the airspace used by jets and turboprops.) Meanwhile, the fleet of business jets is aging with a growing proportion older than 20 years. As one aircraft finance executive explained, “There will be quite a number of aircraft ‘parked’ because of this triple-threat combination of shortcomings. “The impact on the value of those aircraft makes investing in meeting both mandates a hurdle that’s too tall to clear. The costs for some of these aircraft will exceed their value and [will also] put the squeeze on some airplanes already RVSM compliant but not yet ready to fly with ADS-B.” The pilot of one older Mid-Size jet lacking both

“If there's one thing we've improved over the past decade, it's been involving more people in Business Aviation...” RVSM and ADS-B compliance told AvBuyer the airplane's owners had assessed the cost and decided to eschew both. The jet is likely to be scrapped for parts come January. “Management decided the investment would not pay off in the long term,” the pilot explained.

Supply & Demand Conundrum

The available pool of pre-owned business-turbine aircraft for sale held steady during the early months of 2019, and then began to increase. Prices unsurprisingly held steady. For the past couple of months, however, that status bucked the expectations for a market with more used aircraft available for sale. The percentage now stands at just over 10% of the fleet. Nonetheless, prices continue to hold (except in areas with a disproportionately high fleet percentage on the market). In those niche areas small price concessions helped move airplanes. Our finance executive expects total pre-owned sales to barely make 2,000 in 2019. “The financing is available. The terms are more realistic than a decade ago,” the finance officer observed (referring to the terms sought during the opening of the Great Recession). “This slowdown, as it comes, won't approach the chaos and price depression of 2008 and 2009,” he forecast. Virtually no aspect of today's market compares to the panic-driven sell-off that pushed aircraft values below the level of their owners' loan obligations.

“One element worth noting in how sales have started to slow is the uncertainty over the global economy and the trade conflicts between the US and China,” noted an east coast broker. “The full impact has yet to be felt here – but when it is, expect to see some current owners exit Business Aviation.”

Believers, Albeit not Aviation Apostles

The changes in options to access Business Aviation over the past decade give more ways to enjoy the benefits of business aircraft. For example, the expansion in the size, number and variety of fractional ownership programs; the club approach (as represented by Wheels Up); jet cards; and leases provide more avenues for Business Aviation users to pay for only the access they need, as opposed to full ownership. “If there's one thing we've improved over the past decade, it's been involving more people in Business Aviation,” the aircraft finance executive noted. “A whole lot of users will explore every avenue available to keep them off the airlines – except for when it's absolutely the most costeffective choice. And we know that won't be a lot of the time.” Meanwhile, with the backlogs grown in recent years, the certification and service entry of many new Large Cabin business jets will keep the fleet and users growing – even as it adds more sales stock to the pool of pre-owned business aircraft for sale. ❙

How Hot is the Used Helicopter Sales Market? Recent market reports indicate the VIP used

helicopter marketplace is Mark Clancy Michael Roberts

holding up well so far in

2019. AvBuyer’s Matt Harris spoke with Mark Clancy, HelicopterBuyer and

Michael Roberts, JETVEND to gain their insights…

he used aircraft marketplace today paints a complex picture, and the market for preowned turbine helicopters is no different. According to data released by JETNET, turbine helicopter sales decreased 13.3% year-overyear (YoY) during the first half (H1) of 2019. At the same time, turbine helicopters took an average 31 days less to sell than they did in H1 2018, and the fleet percentage for sale dropped from 5.8% in 2018 to 5.3% in 2019. Additional information published in Aero Asset’s recent report covering pre-owned helicopter market trends says that as many as 63% of sales in Q2 2019 were configured for VIP operations. So, while transactions appear to be down for the year generally, it seems that VIP-configured helicopters are holding up well within the current marketplace. But why is this? “Demand for VIP helicopters has increased during the last two years, and it comes from private buyers purchasing light single-engine turbines through to high-net-worth individuals seeking to purchase twinengine VIP configured medium helicopters,” explains Mark Clancy, president and CEO, HelicopterBuyer. Clancy, with 32 years’ experience in the aviation business and 20 years in helicopter sales, started out as an aerospace engineer, overhauling Garrett

TFE731 turbofan engines and selling business jet and engine MRO services before offering Lycoming T53 and Rolls-Royce M250 helicopter engine MRO sales. Eventually, in 2000, he moved into the helicopter trading business, and established HelicopterBuyer. “The prosperous business environment today, especially in North America, is the impetus behind the trend for VIP sales,” he elaborates. “We have seen many small business owners interested in learning to fly and seeking to buy their own helicopter.” Though he didn’t have percentages to hand for VIP helicopter transactions versus other applications, Michael Roberts, president, helicopter and jet sales brokerage JETVEND believes plenty of potential exists for continued growth in the VIP helicopter sector. Roberts began his own fixed-wing brokerage in 2007, and when an opportunity arose to sell a Sikorsky which had been originally custom-ordered by the Sultan of Brunei he moved into rotorcraft sales, which forms a substantial part of his business today. “There are many more people in the world who could benefit from, and can afford helicopter travel, who are not currently using helicopters,” he notes. “Simply put, the potential is massive.” www.AVBUYER.com

Medium Twin-Engine Trouble-spots

Aero Asset suggests that although twin-engine helicopter retail sales have been up across all weight classes, that has not been the case in the mediumtwin category - accounting for 30% of the pre-owned transaction volume, year to date (YTD). “I believe that the medium-twins in question are former off-shore or EMS Bell 412s and older Eurocopter/Airbus AS332s that generally have not been selling and are sitting idle,” Clancy suggests. “However, the trend over the last couple of years has been for these helicopters to find a second life in the utility markets. “For example, the older Bell 412s (412, 412SP and 412HP) are much lighter than the 412EP and are less expensive. There have been several examples of utility operators reconfiguring them for utility missions," he elaborates. “The Bell 412 hot and high performance is not as good as a Bell 205A-1++, 212S or 212 (for example), but not all utility operators need to fly in hot-andhigh environments. The 412 is also much faster and smoother to fly than the older Bell two-bladed rotor system medium twins. The same could be said of former offshore configured AS332 L1s and L2s; several have been reconfigured for firefighting in Europe and North America. www.AVBUYER.com

“The other reason why the medium-twins have not been selling well is due to growing interest in heavy helicopters for forestry and other infrastructure projects, such as power line construction.”

Older Helicopters: Finding a ‘Second Life’

Remarkably, according to Aero Asset’s report, only 2% of the YTD sales of VIP helicopters are for airframes older than 20 years. Clancy points out that while aircraft like the Bell 412 might find a ‘second life’ in a different sector, others are not so easily repurposed. “Older Sikorsky S-76s do not have much of a ‘second life’ opportunity as they’re not candidates for utility work,” he explains. “They’re too expensive to reconfigure to VIP/corporate and are too costly to maintain. Generally, they’re too much for the private operator to fly and hangar.” Nevertheless, some older Bell 206 Long Rangers and older AS350s are being transitioned from utility roles to private operators. “This type of transition first occurred years ago with the Bell 206B Jet Rangers and AS350Bs,” Clancy reveals. “Now, as commercial operators have shifted their preferences to the Bell 407 and AS350B3e, the Bell 206L3/L4 and AS350B2s are becoming aircraft of choice for private owners.”

With a picture forming that some older helicopters have more traction than others on the pre-owned market, are there any big deterrents hindering more transactions of 20+ year-old helicopters in the current marketplace? Roberts implies that some of the trouble could lay in the pricing. “Unless an older aircraft is priced according to its age, its current status, and particular projected expenses, it will sit on the market,” he details. “Buyers choose newer machines for the same amount that many sellers of older machines would like to get.” “The key buyer deterrent relating to older helicopters is that most sellers are not thinking of the buyer when they decide to sell,” Clancy believes. “Sellers really need to consider the buyer more when marketing their asset. They can do this by ensuring the helicopter is airworthy; by updating components; and by addressing major inspections that may be coming due soon. “It’s also worth sellers investing in new paint and an interior refurbishment. And, they need to be realistic, ensuring they price the helicopter right for the target buyer-market.”

Pre-Owned Helicopter Market Hotspots

Having discussed a couple of the sticking points in today’s pre-owned helicopter marketplace, one market is catching Clancy’s eye for all the right reasons so far in 2019. “Bell 407s are probably the hottest helicopter on the market today as there is only 2.8% of the fleet for sale,” he says. “By comparison, many other models have 5% of the fleet for sale.” What’s behind the market activity for this particular model? “While Bell has been increasing its factory production capability, it has many domestic and foreign government priority orders at present. “This is pushing out commercial lead-times, driving the pre-owned demand and pricing,” he reveals.

Sunny Horizon for Pre-Owned Helicopter Sales?

Though used turbine sales during 2019 have been down YoY, do Roberts and Clancy expect an uptick

52  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

any time soon? While Roberts sees potential for all categories within the helicopter sales marketplace to improve, Clancy points to the different factors that influence different segments. “Regional Gross Domestic Product growth and geopolitical stability drive the offshore helicopter markets, whereas private buyer demand is primarily a function of the economy,” he notes. “High-networth-individuals associated with the VIP markets are not affected by the economy, though. “Meanwhile, emergency medical markets are determined by private investment and government regulation, but utility markets are driven by a combination of economically-driven resource development and environmentally-compelling firefighting and disaster recovery support. “So, you see, depending on domestic and world events, and your point of view, you can develop your own sense of where the various global helicopter market sectors are headed going forwards…” ❙ MI More information from www.helicopterbuyer.com and www.jets.aero

North American Business Jet & Turboprop Fleet Analysis

As eyes turn to Las Vegas, Nevada for NBAA-BACE 2019, Mike Chase takes the

opportunity to analyze the health of the North American Business Aviation fleet... A Note on Global Trade

n August, the US economy celebrated its longest-ever period of growth—122 months, dating to the end of the Great Recession of 2007–2009. Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased 2% in Q2 2019, according to the “second” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). In Q1, real GDP rose 3.1%. Why’s this important? The BEA report shows that the US GDP was above the 3% growth mark (when Business Aviation tends to do well) in Q1 2019 but is off to a slow start in Q2.

I

Currently the US international trade in goods and services has global markets in dispute, causing much concern worldwide. In 2018 there was a large imbalance – to the tune of $628bn – between US imports and exports, and the US has been paying for a greater amount of imports. To illustrate, in 1992 the negative balance between US imports and exports was recorded at $39bn, which grew to $384bn by 2009, and almost double in 2018. While the US is trying to reverse and reduce these trade imbalances, this

At the end of August 2019, North America accounted for 14,223 (69%) of the global wholly-owned, in operation, business jet fleet (based-in), and 9,259 (62%) of the total global business turboprop fleet (Table A, left). This represents an increase of 403 (2.9%) more business jets in North America in 2019 compared to 2018, whereas business turboprops increased by 123 (1.3%) in North America during the same timeframe.

Chart A (left), meanwhile, depicts a tenyear fleet overview for North American business jets and turboprops (August 2010 through August 2019). There are 4,964 more business jets than turboprops, as of August 2019, a difference that has continued to grow since 2010 when there was a difference of 3,195. (Note, too, that the Compounded Annual Grow Rate (CAGR) for business jets (2.8%) and turboprops (1.8%) are reflected over this ten-year period.)

situation has resulted in trade wars between the US and other countries where very high tariffs have been placed on the goods and services traded. These policies have resulted in a negative economic outlook in global business trade, including Business Aviation. So how is the North American BizAv fleet looking in 2019 with the current economic climate?

Textron Aviation, incorporating Cessna, Hawker and Beechjet models, lead the manufacturers for business jets in operation in North America (per Chart B, overleaf) with a combined total of 44% of the fleet. Bombardier, Gulfstream, Dassault Falcon, and Embraer follow with the next largest percentages. Together,

the US has the largest number of business jets and business turboprops in North America. (The total numbers of aircraft that are wholly-owned, shared and fractionally owned are also represented, along with the numbers leased.) Today, leased business jets make up 6.7% of the total fleet of jets in operation within North America, and 6% of the turboprops.

North American Business Turboprop Fleet (By OEM)

Of the turboprop OEMs, Textron’s Beechcraft and Cessna lead the way in North America with 4,997 units (54%) of the total 9,259 units in operation. Together, Textron, Pilatus, Piper/Cheyenne and Socata/DAHER comprise the ‘Top Four’ manufacturers of in-operation business turboprops in North America, and account for a combined 84% of all the turboprops there, (see Chart C, below, right).

In Summary

The Business Aviation Market is driven by strong economic activity, corporate profitability, wealth creation, and business investment. Based on GDP measurements, the US economy continues to have large quarterly percentage swings that has not shown consistently strong economic activity to sustain Business Aviation growth in North

Of those Top Three nations, the GDP growth outlook for the US is 2.46% for 2019 and is expected to drop to 1.78% in 2020. Canada expects a 1.35% GDP growth in 2019 and an increase to 1.85% in 2020, while Mexico anticipates the lowest projection for 2019 (among the Top Three) of 1.18% for 2019 and 1.5% for 2020. The United States holds the leading position in North America for number of business jets and turboprops by a large margin. Overall, growth of the North American jet fleet continues at a faster rate than for turboprops. ❙

Five Older Used Jets Worth a Second Look… If you’re shopping the used aircraft marketplace, should older jets automatically be ruled out of your search? Aircraft appraiser Jeremy Cox highlights five older business aircraft that could be worth a second look, and why…

t’s apparent to me that the current state of the business jet marketplace can be divided into three separate segments:

Large Cabin/Heavy Jets: This is a strong market, but late models suffer from significant depreciation in value during the first five years of service. Aircraft younger than 2005 (Mid-size and Smaller): There is a lack of inventory at present, therefore values within this segment are increasing. Everything else: Values continue to drop and some will struggle to find any buyer, now or in the future. Worse, still, the part-out market for

these aircraft is rapidly diminishing. Many of the jet aircraft in this segment are what I would term ‘Jurassic’ jets. So what, in my opinion, defines a Jurassic jet? I tend to use the following criteria: • Is the aircraft older than 25 years? • Does it have Cathode Ray Tube EFIS (if at all)? • Does it have analog systems instead of digital? • Does it lack the efficiency of winglets (a few exceptions apply here)? • Is it lacking Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC)? • Does it operate with lower engine core by-pass air? www.AVBUYER.com

Table A: Fleet Depletion (by Model) Where More Than 75% Have Been Retired/Written Off

Does it lack efficient/optimized exhaust mixing? Are there few (if any) R composite engine parts? Does it have lower Inter Turbine Temperatures (ITT)? Is there a lack of turbine gearing? Is the aircraft on hard-time engine overhaul intervals (i.e. unqualified for MSG 3/oncondition)?

The average year of manufacture for the entire business jet fleet (which consists of over 21,000 aircraft) is 1991, putting the average age at 28 years. Almost 20% (>4,100 aircraft) of all business jets manufactured have since been written-off for various reasons, with obsolescence being the primary cause. For the more than 4,100 aircraft that have been written-off over time, the average total-hours since new is a mere 5,500 hours, which – viewed through the lens of the airline industry – is less than two years’ worth of operations for an aircraft like a Boeing 737 or 757. Table A (right) illustrates this transition by listing the Fleet Depletion, by Model, where more than 75% of the model’s fleet has been retired/written-off.

Older Aircraft That are Worth a Second Look

With this in mind, are older business jets ever worth considering in the used jet market? In some cases, the answer is a definite ‘yes’ as we’ll illustrate here… The financial qualifications to own a business jet (as opposed to utilizing shares, jet cards or charter) are more than $25m net worth if you’re an individual, or over $120m annual sales as a corporation. If a potential business jet owner has less wealth or sales, they may well find that covering the annual operating cost (as well as debt service) on a new, or nearly new aircraft is very tight. In today’s divided marketplace, however, potential buyers could choose to focus on the ‘Everything Else’ market segment I identified, and there are several great buys that could be considered here. More than 10 years ago, before the Great Recession struck, I would often hear potential buyers say, “I can buy lots of gas for a couple of million dollars”, when they were in the market for a used jet and didn’t care that older aircraft had less fuel efficient engines. Today’s fuel prices are stable and low, and for prospective buyers who are willing to be the last owner of a jet before it either ‘times-out’ on its engines, or completing a future airframe inspection is www.AVBUYER.com

TURBOPROPS S The criteria used to select the above list of aircraft included: • A purchase price below US$300k (which is less than the down-payment on a new aircraft); • If Honeywell TFE731 powered, FAA AD 201217-05 for the first stage low-pressure turbine rotor discs (due by October 2020) cannot apply. The compliance cost is likely to exceed the value of the aircraft. (This includes the 731-4 and 731-5 series engines); • An airframe maintenance schedule predominantly governed by flight hours, rather than a calendar date; • Landing gear overhauls (if applicable) cost less than $100k to accomplish; • Parts and Components are readily available and relatively inexpensive from multiple ‘third-party’ sources.

comparison with the five older used jets we’ve identified as being worth a second look. Note: The Direct Operating Cost (DOC) used is from the JetBrokers aircraft comparison tables (www.jetbrokers.com) and assumes a fuel cost of $4.25/gal, engine reserves (either MSP or overhaul agency estimates), and maintenance costs using information gathered from operators. All inspection estimates are based upon operating 400 hours per year, averaging 1.5hr legs.

Establishing an Aircraft’s Efficiency Rating

We summarize our review of older jets worth a second look using a formula provided by Robin Higham, whose comprehensive book ‘100 Years of Air Power and Aviation’ includes an ‘Efficiency Rating Scale’ that can be applied to all aircraft. The three parameters used in creating an efficiency rating are:

You’ll also note that none of the above aircraft feature a stand-up cabin. That’s because most (if not all) of the larger cabin aircraft are economically challenged due to any one of the following reasons: • ADS-B compliance will cost too much; • Engines are subject to a calendar interval midlife inspection/overhaul due to corrosion; • Calendar inspection/checks may exceed the value of the aircraft; • A landing gear overhaul may exceed the value of the aircraft.

‘Z’, multiplied by ‘Y’, multiplied by ‘X’, divided by 50,000,000 equals the aircraft’s Efficiency rating. Table C (below) presents the results using the Higham scale for our older aircraft and the same ‘Sample New Jet’. The results leave plenty of food for thought… ❙

How to Build a Business Aircraft Acquisition Plan Why is it important to develop a thorough aircraft acquisition plan for

your next business jet purchase? David Wyndham highlights not only why, but also how you should formulate a failsafe blueprintâ&#x20AC;Ś

ith a sense of urgency and a large sum of cash, an aircraft acquisition can be completed rather quickly. However, without a plan or the right team in place, these types of scrambles typically result in the wrong aircraft for the job, or just simply picking the wrong aircraft. To avoid the headache from an impulse purchase, you

need to build a business aircraft acquisition plan. To begin, there are two fundamental reasons for acquiring new or different aircraft: 1) The current aircraft can no longer perform the mission, or 2) The current aircraft is no longer the most costeffective solution. www.AVBUYER.com

Changes in mission need to be quantified. As an example, one client in the Eastern US started flying shorter trips with fewer people. Their eightpassenger jet, with a 1,800nm range, was more than they needed. Instead, they found that a five-passenger airplane that’s more efficient on short trips might be the next aircraft for them. But how can you quantify what it is that you need and want? Economics are critical. The cost of an aircraft is more than the acquisition price alone. It encompasses the total costs needed to operate the aircraft and allow for a future residual value. As an example, a single aircraft that meets 98% of usage requirements may cost far more than an aircraft that meets 85% of your needs with a supplemental jet card, charter or fractional solution in place for the remaining 15%.

What Should Your Acquisition Plan Include?

It is important for you to understand what it costs to own and operate the aircraft – and this will all www.AVBUYER.com

come into your acquisition plan. So, what should your acquisition plan include? An aircraft acquisition plan must (at a minimum): • • •

Identify, quantify and differentiate your needs and wants; Identify and rank the possible aircraft types by mission capability; and Analyze all the costs involved with the aircraft.

Your plan should be void of emotional issues and stay as far from subjective criteria as possible. To help in this respect, you will need someone who can ask the tough questions and assist with an unbiased analysis of the candidate aircraft. Consultants may offer the unbiased review that you initially need, and their feedback will need to cover both technical and financial aspects of the aircraft acquisition.

Who Should be on Your Acquisition Team?

“Think of your business aircraft acquisition as a ‘time-is-money’ deal. That is, if you don’t have much time, you’ll probably spend even more money!” add expertise across several fields to your team. Tax planning should begin well before the purchase, not after the closing, meaning that you will need to hire someone familiar with taxes as they apply to aviation. You will also need to consult a qualified aviation attorney to ensure that the contracts are appropriate and that the various regulatory issues are addressed. A document that looks good from a basic business perspective may not be legal in the eyes of the FAA or other aviation authority. Don't overlook the insurance broker, who will need to be kept informed as to when and how the aircraft is to be used. (For example, if the aircraft is to be placed on a management agreement, who and how are each of the parties to that agreement going to be covered?) You will also need an aircraft sales professional, who will ideally have an excellent understanding of the aircraft sales market — what the availability is; lead times for various models; who to contact about pre-buy inspections and appraisals; and how long it could take to dispose of your current aircraft.

Moreover, the aircraft sales professional you hire will need all the qualities required to be an excellent facilitator, since their job will also be to make sure the deal closes and that all parties are happy.

Additional Planning When Buying New…

Moreover, if you are buying a new aircraft, specifying all the options, picking out paint, and choosing an interior may take a minimum of six months and may well require the services of additional advisors.

In Summary…

Think of your business aircraft acquisition as a “time-is-money” deal. That is, if you don’t have much time, you’ll probably spend even more money! If you are looking to close a deal by the end of this year, you need to be looking seriously right now, and investing in all of the right areas to ensure your acquisition plan results in the right aircraft, at the right cost, at the right time. ❙ More information from www.conklindd.com

Going for Gold: How Rolls-Royce prepares for the unexpected

You’re probably not giving much thought to the Olympics next year. However, Business Aviation manufacturers spend months of logistical planning for the thousands of customers that use Business Aviation to travel to the games. Preparation for Tokyo starts several months prior. Gregor Schmidt, Head of Aircraft Operations at RollsRoyce, gives you an inside look at some of the nuances involved in preparing to host hundreds of business aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce engines. “It’s similar to preparing for a marathon, it doesn’t just happen overnight”, Schmidt says. “We rely heavily on our unique global network of Authorized Service Centres (ASCs). It’s impossible to have local knowledge of every city or country in the world, but given our extensive footprint of 77 ASCs, we have a reliable partner in the region or even in the city where the major events are taking place.” Rolls-Royce also triple-check the tooling and spare parts available on-site and proactively ship parts to the city where the event is taking place. “In Brazil during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Olympics in 2016, we understood the pressure that these events would place on our service network and accepting a reduction in service level was simply not an option. Given the challenges with long

78  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

customs lead times in Brazil, additional provisions were imported to ensure adequate and seamless coverage for our demanding customers.” When asked if similar preparation occurs for major sporting events such as the PGA Masters or the SuperBowl, Schmidt replies “Absolutely, but given that a large majority of Business Aviation is situated in North America, these events tend to be a little easier to plan for. We have a very large footprint in the region, so moving spares, tooling and technical know-how isn’t as complex as dealing with less logistically accessible locations such as Sochi, Tokyo or Rio de Janeiro.” Generally speaking, the “80-20” rule must be applied, focusing on providing inventory for those components that have a higher (yet still unlikely) historical tendency to fail. But if a spare part isn’t available, Schmidt explains “Rolls-Royce prides itself in going the extra mile. Typically, we solve standard aircraft on ground (AOG) situations in under 24 hours, wherever these events occur. However, we have contracts with reputable charter companies to ensure alternative lift is available for unexpected and lengthier AOG situations. Although we aren’t competing for medals at the Olympics, we like to think we’re also going for gold.”

How Much Does a Private Jet Cost? Is it easy to put a flat cost on private jet ownership? How does the cost compare to the value of owning a private jet? Industry expert Jet Tolbert highlights the basics, while offering the perspective of the many benefits that come from owning an aircraft…

or years people in the private jet industry have considered the scheduled airlines to be their largest advertiser. Flying a private jet enables travelers to avoid long, arduous arrivals and departures procedures, ticket queues and security checks, and allows them to run to their own schedule, rather than that of the airline. Private jet flights are coordinated to meet the owner’s schedule, and delays are minimal. The difference is so profound that many corporate executives opt to fly privately. Even the most frugal of executives find the value far outweighs the cost of flying a business jet. When Warren Buffett bought his first private jet, he named it ‘the Indefensible’ due to the negative criticism towards private jet owners at the time. Later he not only renamed it ‘the Indispensable’, but he found the benefits so valuable he moved forward with the purchase of a company offering shared private jet ownership solutions (Fractional Ownership). Clearly, there’s far more to consider when answering a question such as how much a private jet costs…

F

What’s the Purchase and Hourly Operating Cost of a Private Jet?

The price range for a brand-new business jet could www.AVBUYER.com

range anywhere from under $3m to over $70m, depending on the desired size and performance of the jet. Moreover, the costs per hour to operate a jet ranges substantially depending on the size and age of the jet and could cost anywhere from $900 per hour up to $4,500 per hour. From my experience, a typical corporate user could have an average annual budget anywhere from to $400k to $2.5m. While these are certainly big numbers, nearly all operators of private jets that I’ve met have entered aircraft ownership as a result of the economic benefits. Not everybody owns their own jet, however. Some find charter and jet card options to be an economically viable way of accessing Business Aviation, and others purchase a fractional share in an aircraft if their annual utilization is too low to justify outright ownership.

Who Owns a Private Jet?

The current worldwide fleet comprises approximately 22,000 private jets and 15,000 turboprops, of which around 65-70% are located in the US. And within the US, 3% of corporate aircraft owners are S&P 500 companies, meaning that the remaining 97% of private jet aircraft are operated by individuals, organizations and businesses – whether large, medium or small. In fact, 85% of US Companies that utilize

corporate aircraft are small to mid-size businesses with 50-500 employees.

What are the Corporate Benefits of Private Jets?

According to a 2017 NEXA study, companies utilizing Business Aviation outperform their competitors in several metrics. Indeed, companies using Business Aviation outperformed non-users by 70% in terms of Enterprise Value based on their statistics from the five-year period 2012-2017. The same study cited 10 areas where many toprated companies were Business Aviation users. Here are some of the metrics (and percentages) of companies that utilize Business Aviation to achieve this accolade: • • • • • • •

92% of America’s 50 most-innovative companies (Forbes Global List 2017) 95% of the 100 best places to work (Fortune 2017) 97% of the 50 ‘Best Customer Services’ (24/7 Wall St. 2016) 92% of the 50 best brands (Interbrand 2016) 98% of the world’s 50 most-admired companies (Fortune 2017) 95% of the 50 top-performing US companies (Forbes Global 2017) 100% of the most trustworthy companies in America (Forbes 2017)

The Broader Economic Benefits to Private Jets

We’ll summarize with a few more economic benefits that should illustrate that when discussing the cost of a private jet, those costs must be weighed against the benefits the jet brings to an organization. According to the same 2017 NEXA study, the FAA estimates that Business Aviation contributes approximately $64bn to the US economy annually. PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Study concluded that Business Aviation helps support more than one million jobs and over $200bn in economic activity nationwide, and that a single aircraft can bring $2.5m in economic benefit to a local community surrounding a General Aviation airport from direct, indirect and induced economic contribution. This contribution to local economies and taxes makes Business Aviation users good corporate citizens and increases shareholder value. That’s got to be a cost worth expending… ❙ More information from www.americanaircraftsales.com

Lower Carbon Emissions Costs Expected In a related area to private jet cost, at present bio jet fuel manufacturers are working towards reducing the cost to aircraft operators for their carbon emissions. For example, in the US LAX is using 50/50 biofuel in all commercial aircraft fuel purchases; a blend that reduces carbon emissions by up to 40%. It’s expected that there will be a 82  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

100% biofuel approval within the next five years which will enable an 80% reduction in carbon emissions from jets. This technology is being promoted in Business Aviation, too, through partnerships with FBOs, and it’s expected to begin fueling private aircraft in the near future. Currently there are five processes for creating bio jet fuel

with several more set to be approved for ASTM manufacturing standards. In fact, the expectation is for at least a dozen more manufacturing processes to be approved within the next five years, creating a further increase in availability as a direct replacement for Jet A, without the need for any modifications to the aircraft or their engines. www.AVBUYER.com

With a focused approach on global excellence and creativity, Andre Fodor has managed flight operations for the U.N. and Flight Options as well as being a senior demonstration pilot and instructor for Embraer Aircraft. He is the aviation director for his current employer.

There are multiple stories highlighting how the business aircraft was the only tool that could get the job done for hundreds of companies around the world. Andre Fodor, aviation director, Johnsonville, lists three examples from his career… he story repeats itself every year. Flight department managers annually find themselves working with tax accountants and lawyers, preparing tax statements that show aircraft usage, costs and the tax burden of aircraft operation and ownership. From a practical standpoint, taxation accountants and flight department managers differ when looking at costs. Speaking as a flight department manager, an accountant’s math is an alchemy that includes elements of depreciation, acquisition, capitalization and operational costs that on paper may show hourly costs soaring to astounding numbers. The flight department manager’s math focuses on the actual day-to-day costs to operate. These tax statements often lead to discussions with company principals about the personal use of the aircraft, associated costs and taxation. Initially they’re surprised – even shocked – over the costs. But when asked whether they would be willing to fly scheduled airlines, fly less, or cancel some of their personal usage, the answer is usually a resounding ‘no’. Why? Let’s look at three short stories highlighting where flying business aircraft was the only way to get the job done…

One day, a crew was dispatched to fly the former president of a major nation. Already a complex trip with much pre-planning and back-up planning, the crew arrived early and readied the aircraft for a quick departure. The entourage arrived late, though, and behind schedule for their next meeting. As the passengers boarded the jet and the captain asked for their IDs, the ex-president casually replied, “I don’t have any”. A moment of solemn silence ensued after the captain explained that he could not depart without valid identification. Although the passenger is the former president of a major nation with a face that is well-known – there was no doubting who he was – the law is the law. Looking for an alternative solution we called the federal authorities and discovered that someone who is in custody and being transported by a federal law enforcement officer (LEO) can fly, providing the LEO travels alongside their charge until they reach their destination. A secret service agent was summoned, accepted custody, and the flight was able to proceed. You’d have difficulty matching the level of problem-solving and flexibility aboard a scheduled airline

A President Without ID

Multiple Contracts, Multiple Destinations

When managing flight operations for a charter company, new restrictions came into effect requiring positive government identification of all passengers before they could board a charter flight. As the law, it also became part of the company’s Standard Operating Procedures. www.AVBUYER.com

On another occasion a shipping magnate from the Philippines was close to closing a major contract deal. His company was buying the rights to port access in several European countries. This was a project that had taken years to finalize and was culminating with the signing of valuable contracts.

“Private aviation provides an exclusive service for getting people from Point A to Point B.” The caveat was that each agreement was predicated on the signature of linked contracts with another European port and all of the contracts required the magnate’s signature on the same day. That would require the CEO to fly – in specific order – to Copenhagen, Denmark; Stockholm, Sweden; Tallinn, Estonia; Helsinki, Finland; and finally to St. Petersburg, Russia. Assuring the success of this sequence of flights was so important that three aircraft were involved; one aircraft to take the passengers, while two were positioned on stand-by with fresh crews in case of AOG or dutytime issues. Try that using the scheduled airlines!

Humanitarian Mission Flexibility

After a hurricane had ravaged an island leaving it without power, access to medication or hospital services, I received a call from operations asking if we could evacuate cancer patients from the island. The patients were stable but needed to get to a medical facility to resume their treatment. All airline flight access to the island was shut 86  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

down because the main airport was being used for relief operations, but there was a small General Aviation airport nearby. Thinking ahead, we loaded the aircraft with supplies – potable water, dry foods and medications - unloaded and then loaded ten passengers aboard, flying them back to the mainland and preventing them from reaching a critical condition.

In Summary…

Private aviation provides an exclusive service for getting people from Point A to Point B. Quantifying the benefits of private flight is a challenge, especially when the goal is to try to balance costs and benefits. However, you need only look at the major corporate hubs worldwide, including Teterboro, NY; Nice, France; London Luton, UK; and Geneva, Switzerland that continue to see traffic grow, as proof that Business Aviation provides tangible benefits that can’t merely be quantified in dollars and cents.

As depicted in Chart B (previous page) using Wichita, Kansas, as the origin point the Bombardier Global 7500 shows more range coverage (7,725nm) than the Gulfstream G650ER (7,437nm), each with eight passengers. Note: For business jets, ‘Eight Pax Range’ represents the maximum IFR range of the aircraft at long range cruise. NBAA IFR fuel reserve calculation is for a 200nm alternate. This range does not include winds aloft or any other weather-related obstacles.

The Maximum Maintenance Equity figure was achieved the day an aircraft came off the production line (since it had not accumulated any utilization toward any maintenance events). The percent of the Maximum Maintenance Equity that an average aircraft will have available, based on its age, assumes: - Average annual utilization of 470 flight hours (in the case of the Global 7500) and 424 flight hours (in the case of the G650ER); and - All maintenance is completed when due.

Depreciation Schedule

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. In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, aircraft used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a sevenyear recovery period, or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a six-year recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable www.AVBUYER.com

Asking Prices & Quantity

As of August 2019, no Bombardier Global 7500 jets were available on the used aircraft market. By comparison, eight Gulfstream G650ER business jets were listed for sale, and two were displaying asking prices of $42.95m and $47.5m. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe Total Time (AFTT) and age/condition of an aircraft will cause great variation in the price of a specific aircraft – even between two aircraft from the same year of manufacture. The final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

The points in Chart F (top, right) are centered on the Bombardier Global 7500 and Gulfstream G650ER. For added measure, we include the original Gulfstream G650, too. 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. Eight Passenger Range (nm) with available fuel;

depreciation deduction available in any given year. The US enacted the 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act into law on December 22, 2017. Under the new Act, taxpayers may be able to deduct up to 100% of the cost of a new or pre-owned aircraft purchased after September 27, 2017 and placed in service before January 1, 2023. This 100% expensing provision is a huge bonus for aircraft owners and operators. After December 31, 2022 the Act decreases the percentage available each year by 20% to depreciate qualified business jets until December 31, 2026. Table C (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019model Bombardier Global 7500 in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods. Table D (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2019model Gulfstream G650ER in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods.

2. The long-range cruise speed flown to achieve that range; 3. The net 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 new 2019-model Bombardier Global 7500 is purchased at a higher price than a new 2019-model Gulfstream G650ER, and the G650ER exhibits a slightly lower hourly variable operating cost. In terms of productivity, however, the Bombardier Global 7500 edged out the Gulfstream G650ER with a greater cabin volume (additional cabin length), greater range, and extra ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ capacity.

Compare, Contrast, Decide with AvBuyer

In Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business jet operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them. For many years Gulfstream’s G650ER dominated the top end of the purposebuilt business jet market. Our comparison illustrates that entry into the market of the Bombardier Global 7500 introduces some healthy competition, and perhaps some incentive for our two Ultra-Long-Range business jet OEMs to raise the bar even further with future business jet announcements… This is a market segment well worth watching!

Bell 505 vs Robinson R66 Operating Cost Correction In our August Helicopter Comparison featuring the Robinson R66 and Bell 505, we incorporated some erroneous data relating to the Cost Per Mile, and Total Variable Cost. The correct information should have run as follows: Cost Per Mile Comparison

Total Variable Cost Comparison

The following chart details the ‘Cost per Mile’ for the Bell 505 and Robinson R66, per Conklin and de Decker data. It factors direct costs (no depreciation) and with each aircraft flying a 200nm mission. The average US Jet-A fuel cost used for August 2019 was $4.67 per gallon. The Bell 505 shows a higher cost per nautical mile at $4.56, compared to $3.40 for the Robinson R66. That’s a difference of 25% in favor of the Robinson R66.

The ‘Total Variable Cost’, illustrated below, is defined as the Cost of Fuel Expense, Maintenance Labor Expense, Scheduled Parts Expense and Miscellaneous Trip Expense. The Total Variable Cost for the Robinson R66 computes at $371/hour, which is 20% less than the Bell 505 ($465/hour), according to Conklin de Decker. With the following corrections, our concluding comments should have reflected that the Robinson R66 has an ~20% lower operating cost of the Comparative helicopters, not a 20% higher cost. T

VALUES - MEDIUM JETS

AVBUYER.com

Business Aircraft Values: Medium Jets Of all the business jet

categories, none does more to balance

capability with utility

than the Medium Jet segment; and no

segment provides

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

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 Fall 2019. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Cessna Citation XLS+ values reported in the Fall 2019 edition of the Bluebook show $6.8m for a 2013 model, $6.3m for a 2012 model and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. With the reader’s knowledge of aircraft, equipment, range and performance, the following Guide allows the reader to determine the best value aircraft for consideration. Note: We have included 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 104.

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.

Aruba vs FAA EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW WITHOUT ASKING The N registry was set up as a public service; thus, it was never made to cater to high networth individuals. Not only will you not receive personalized services, but you will also be waiting for weeks, if not months before your aircraft is registered and eligible to fly. N-registered aircrafts take between 6 to 8 months to obtain a CPDLC airspace approval. Starting January 1, 2020, the consent will be a requirement to enter the EASA airspace. In Aruba, you can obtain all your required airspace approval at your initial registration.

Easy Access: As an aircraft owner, you can pick up the phone and review any registration or airworthiness issue with the help of our reputable inspectors and registration officers. If there is a problem, you can settle it directly with the DCA of Aruba. With inspectors strategically located around the world, we can always ensure you with a 24/7 service; as they are chosen to enable fast response time for our clients’ requests. Designated inspectors have a practical approach to solve problems. They have extensive experience in regulatory oversight, and they carry out inspections in a personal yet businesslike manner.

RECAP: ARUBA IS OPEN TO ALL The Registry of Aruba welcomes all aircraft with an MTOW of 5,700 kg, whether from private, corporate, or commercial operations. REGISTRATION VIA DOMICILE  You can register your aircraft in Aruba without opening a local Aruban company (AVV). Register your aircraft via domicile using your existing foreign SPV. BOUTIQUE CUSTOMER SERVICE  When you register in Aruba, you can feel confident that our experienced team will provide a service that inspires confidence in all aspects of your operation’s ownership and fiscal responsibilities.

We have had several accounts of clients complaining that they are unable to get someone from the FAA on the phone. Even when they have gone in person, the FAA has seemed genuinely uninterested in their concerns. Privacy / Security: Aruba is a jurisdiction with a long history of providing the utmost in client privacy and confidentiality while offering equally superior customer service. The N registry is a matter of public record; an aircraft owner/operator’s information is publicly distributed online. There are times when a lower-profile flag than US registration is necessary for political reasons. Security considerations are critical and will only become more important in the future.

LET US HANDLE IT!

We pride ourselves on our great customer services, our clients have access to our registering officers 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We considered ourselves a boutique registry offering personalized services that meets individual clients needs. In Aruba your aircraft can be registered within 24–48 hours.*

A Banker’s View of Aircraft Financing

Different banks approach aircraft financing differently. How does 1st Source Bank see the aircraft financing market today, and how does it seek to meet the needs of today’s aircraft buyers? Dave Higdon caught up with Greg Holst… hen Orville and Wilbur Wright first took off at Kitty Hawk, 1st Source Bank had already amassed 40 years of history having been founded in 1863. Today, 156 years after its founding, 1st Source remains a strong, stable, local and personal financial institution for its clients. The bank's service region covers Indiana's northern half and Michigan's southwest area, and 1st Source lays claim to being the largest locallycontrolled financial institution headquartered in that area. However, 1st Source also competes nationally, vying for business in several specialized financing services areas.

Indeed, within a specialty finance unit (serving the market for construction equipment, buses, funeral cars, rental car fleet financing and trucking) the bank dedicates an entire division as well as funding solutions for business and private jets, turboprops and turbine helicopters. Heading up the Aviation Finance Division for the past 28 years is Greg Holst. A 40-year veteran of the Business Aviation industry, Holst's employment history includes management roles with Cessna Finance Corporation, Chase Manhattan Leasing, Textron Financial Corporation and Xerox Financial Services. Holst, a pilot, has developed specialist knowledge www.AVBUYER.com

Dave Higdon is a highly respected aviation journalist who has covered all aspects of civil aviation over the past 36 years. Based in Wichita, he has several thousand flight hours, and has piloted pretty much everything from foot-launched wings to combat jets. Contact him via Dave@avbuyer.com

Aviation Financing: Nothing Like a Decade Ago

of international aviation lending and leasing, letters of credit, remote capture business checking and deposit management, wealth management and interest-rate swap contracts. 1st Source has a dedicated team of 16 business aircraft banking professionals who serve the US, Mexico, Brazil and Canada. Their goal is to provide clients with straight talk and sound advice that brings efficiency and client-focused solutions to the bank's relationships. The key to the success of 1st Source Bank, whether its aviation business or its overall operation, is its aim to provide customer focus on a par with its regional-banking roots. “We’re focused on service,” Holst explains. “You don't have to be a multi-millionaire to get our attention. We try to keep our clients' best interest in mind with straight talk, sound advice, great service and just being there. Knowing you can call on a good person, during or after office hours, and get action toward your goal has always been a key to our operating.” www.AVBUYER.com

Aviation is a big component of 1st Source Bank's business. “1st Source has been servicing the Business Aviation segment continuously for more than 33 years,” Holst explains. “And aircraft financing has consistently been a double-digit component of the bank’s lending business. “We have a big commitment to the Business Aviation community,” he continued, “and that's because of good, consistent management of our portfolio and our dedication to clients.” According to Holst, 1st Source Bank's aviation practice goes beyond what's typical of a regional bank. “We're more engaged and involved in Business Aviation than most other banks our size, and some larger banks,” he elaborates, noting that 1st Source didn't suffer most of the problems and panic of the Great Recession (2008/09) that sent many a lender, owner and operator for the Business Aviation exit doors. Commenting on the current market, Holst notes “[This year] I've seen a flattening in the market. But it's still stable. One of our segments is floor-planning for dealers, which is aircraft held for re-sale, and that's down right now. The availability of good preowned aircraft is very limited.” Not surprisingly, the many concentrated areas of instability have some would-be operators on hold – but not running for the exits like they did a decade ago. “People are waiting to see the direction of global trade concerns and the 2020 election. I think that's going to make markets relatively stable or decline modestly,” Holst says. But Holst doesn't see the current state of the market being anywhere near as dire as a decade ago. That's not saying times won't get tighter before they improve. “I think we're ultimately going to see some softening in the market until this stuff gets settled out,” Holst projects.

“We've had a few clients sell their aircraft while values are good,” he adds, “and some are holding off on replacing their aircraft – for now.” Those previous owners haven't abandoned the many tangible and intangible benefits of traveling by business aircraft. Instead of bailing on Business Aviation altogether, they’re employing alternative flying options, including fractional ownership programs, membership programs, and, of course, the evergreen aircraft charter and lease.

today is we don't have the over-inflation of the business aircraft market like we had in 2008. “One thing that hurts us in this current cycle is that the international market can't boost performance like we had post 2008,” Holst cautions. “We had the bubble in the housing market, the subprime-mortgage problem, but international markets helped us out by sustaining sales. Those circumstances don't exist today.”

And Today's Aircraft Financing Market…?

Ultimately, 1st Source avoids trying to be a be-alland-finance-all option, instead focusing on specific types of business aircraft. According to Holst, “We focus primarily on aircraft used for executive transport and revenue generation. When you look at what we do, most of our business is concentrated on Light to Mid-Size jets, Turboprops and Light to MidSize helicopters.” Beyond those parameters, 1st Source tries to stay in its lane for its Business Aviation lending. “We finance both new and used aircraft and try to stay within 20 years in aircraft age.” During its 156 years in business, 1st Source Bank has never been liquidated or been acquired. “I think that feeds into the leadership and strategy,” Holst offers. “That's a big reason why I joined this bank 28 years ago. I'd been with some bigger names and when things were good it was great, then we'd go through a downturn and ultimately exit the business. I decided I didn't want to live that way.” When he first talked to 1st Source, Holst was impressed with the long view and desire to help clients see that picture. “I liked the long view and the commitment to the community the bank serves.” If what's past is prologue, 1st Source customers should expect more of the same for decades to come.

“In times like these, a lot of lenders want to take an approach that's ‘tightening’”, Holst notes of today’s market for aircraft financing. “We don't spend as much time tightening – or loosening – credit. We focus on doing business with people who have sound credit, structuring the loan so that the client maintains a significant equity investment in the aircraft.” Much of 1st Source Bank’s aviation practice is colored by Holst's long career in aviation finance. “My experience is that when people have a bad experience owning an aircraft, when it comes time to sell or trade they don't come back. They may charter, perhaps buy a fractional share, but they don't buy again.” Interest rates have been coming down throughout the year, Holst notes, because most lenders key off the swap rates. “Most owners use the airplane for between three and five years. A small percentage want a 20-year loan, but more typical are loans for five to 10 years. “The marketplace is seeing interest rates that are in the 4% range and even into the 3% range, but there are many variables including how the aircraft is going to be used and where it will operate.” While some fear that today's market seems to follow the same trends that transpired in 2007-2008, Holst notes some large differences. “What's different 110  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

How Was Gogo’s AVANCE L5 Developed, and Why? What was involved in development of the AVANCE L5 cabin connectivity solution and its white-hot industry reception? Matt Harris spoke with Jeremy Tyler, senior director, Airborne Product Engineering at Gogo Business Aviation… ogo Business Aviation describes it as the most robust, highperforming system it has produced. The Business Aviation community would appear to agree. It took just 16 months from market launch for the company’s AVANCE L5 to surpass the milestone 500th business jet installation. That milestone came and went in February 2019, and many more operators have had the system installed aboard their jets since. Coming in a single configuration that delivers the ‘Gogo Biz 4G’ inflight experience, AVANCE L5 enables cabin occupants to stream video and audio, watch movies, access moving maps and flight information, and use personal smartphones, while flight crews can access real-time data for cockpit apps and remote diagnostics and support. “People have grown to expect the same connectivity experience whether they are at home, in the office, or anywhere in between,” Jeremy Tyler, senior director of Airborne Product Engineering, Gogo

Business Aviation tells AvBuyer as he discusses the perceived gaps in the cabin connectivity market that led Gogo to explore AVANCE L5 as a concept. “Ultimately, Gogo saw a need to continue to improve the in-flight connectivity experience helping keep us on a par with the ever-growing expectations of users.” With that came the initial plans that led to the development of AVANCE L5, he adds. One of the leading minds behind AVANCE L5, Tyler began his career with a telecommunications equipment and service provider, before developing hardware solutions for a company supplying rugged equipment to aviation and the military. Those experiences gave him the foundation needed for the work he undertakes for Gogo today.

Challenges of Developing a Market Leader

As successful as AVANCE L5 has been, development naturally brought its challenges and the expertise of Tyler and his team was put to the test as the initial AVBUYER MAGAZINE  Vol 23 Issue 10

idea moved from concept to reality. “There are always technical obstacles when taking on new product development projects – whether it’s trying to meet size, weight, or power constraints, or issues with making everything work as designed,” he explains. “Engineers always love a challenge, though, and usually can find a solution to difficult technology barriers.” But according to Tyler, some of the most difficult challenges had nothing to do with the technology. “In aviation, safety, quality and reliability are also critical. And from a product development perspective, time to market and user experience are critical. “The biggest challenges for us really came with finding a way to keep things running at a fast pace to keep up with the technology, without sacrificing safety, quality or reliability,” he reflects. And while it’s not uncommon for a future product concept to undergo significant adaptations as development progresses, and as challenges and obstacles are negotiated, that wasn’t the case for the AVANCE L5, according to Tyler. 114  Vol 23 Issue 10  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

“As we began discussing the concept of AVANCE L5, Gogo’s senior leadership provided very high-level guidance and then let the development teams brainstorm to come up with the best solution. The concept we came up with is the AVANCE L5 product we have today,” he asserts. “The latitude that our leadership team provided allowed the engineering team the opportunity to think more broadly about the design architecture and methodology. “That helped us, and we ended up with a software-centric design that can be quickly changed and adapted to provide solutions for other connectivity needs,” Tyler added. The same software-centric approach allowed Gogo to quickly launch the AVANCE L3 product with minimal effort shortly after releasing L5.

Today’s Connectivity With Tomorrow in Mind While a successful launch into the Business Aviation marketplace quickly becomes history, just how much was the ever-shifting future of cabin connectivity a part of the thought-process, ensuring it remains a viable solution for Business Aviation operators years into the future?

“Gogo has also taken a common software approach across its SCS, AVANCE L5 and AVANCE L3 products an approach that Tyler says was critical...”

“Much of continuing to remain viable has to do with looking as far into the future as possible early in the design phase so that we can plan for everything we might need,” Tyler affirms. That means it was crucial to the product’s development to build into the design the flexibility to quickly and easily make upgrades. “The software-centric approach provides this flexibility,” Tyler notes. “As the market changes and new technologies emerge, we can make modifications to pieces of the AVANCE L5 design to quickly take advantage of these technologies without having to build a new solution from the ground up.” Gogo has also taken a common software approach across its SCS, AVANCE L5 and AVANCE L3 products - an approach that Tyler says was critical, too, because “it lets us bring new and enhanced features to all our products more quickly and efficiently.”

elsewhere in the market that will allow it to further ratchet up the high standard it already offers in cabin connectivity. The question turns to what would make the ‘perfect’ product that today’s cabin connectivity solutions can’t yet achieve? “The best solution combines the bandwidth and global reach of satellite connectivity with the low latency and lower cost that an Air-To-Ground network provides,” Tyler suggests. “Gogo 5G will be a great step in that direction, but there are always new developments that will take 5G even further, and that remains undefined. “As the technology continues to evolve, a solution to the challenges we face in aviation such as minimal size, weight and power constraints, may be just around the corner. The key is to keep up with the technology so that we’re ready when the next big thing arrives.” And going by what Tyler has told us, when that next ‘big thing’ does arrive after 5G launches, Gogo Business Aviation will certainly be a frontrunner in the race to respond… Stay tuned! ❙ More information from https://business.gogoair.com/ www.AVBUYER.com

How are Electronic Flight Bags Developing in BizAv?

What are the developments in Electronic Flight Bags that have increased flight deck efficiency and performance today? And how will they continue to evolve to cater for pilot needs in the future? Mario Pierobon polls the industry…

usiness jet pilots have always looked for ways to improve flight deck efficiency and performance. One such way has been through the widespread adoption of electronic flight bag (EFB) solutions. While in the early days EFB solutions mainly facilitated the transition to paperless flight decks, the technology has evolved significantly to further increase the improvements in flight deck efficiency and performance.

Development of EFB Solutions

In the early days of EFB applications, one could find 118  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

‘apps’ that ran on powerful hand-held computers that then migrated to early generation personal electronic devices (PED). “This facilitated much of the flight crew’s pre-flight planning with functions including the latest weather forecasts and information, as well as fuel planning and weight and balance calculations,” Scott Sweet, market development director, Business Aviation, Inmarsat told AvBuyer. “These apps eventually evolved into dedicated EFB devices, and further developments have now made it possible for them to run on commercial ‘off the shelf’ tablets and smartphones. www.AVBUYER.com

“EFB solutions have evolved from offering basic calculations to much more complex and interactive efficiency-enhancing solutions that utilize inputs from on-board GPS sources, massive increases in digital memory capacity and the integration of high-speed broadband connectivity.” Initially EFBs were intended to replace paper enroute and terminal navigation charts. Updates of paper sets of charts required a high workload. “Progressively, performance software was introduced,” recalls Cristophe Jumelle, EFB and performance operations manager, Dassault Aviation Falcon Customer Service. www.AVBUYER.com

“Performance applications provide accurate results and reduce pilot workload. The operational documentation has also become more and more electronically based. The last step for operators to become paperless was the replacement of the flight folder (mission data such as weather, notices to airmen (NOTAMs) and the operational flight plan) by electronic tools (weather applications, electronic flight folder). “As of today, operators can fly an aircraft while only keeping the paper quick reference handbook (QRH), particularly for abnormal procedures. In the future an electronic QRH may even fully remove paper in the flight deck,” Jumelle reflects. Early EFB solutions ultimately consisted simply of MS Windows-based PDF readers. “The form factors at that time were very limited in terms of choice, and many required a stylus,” explains Frank McGee, senior customer support specialist, Gulfstream Aerospace. “For our airplanes, paper can still be found in the form of the aircraft flight manual, as FAA regulations require it to be aboard the aircraft and accessible by the flight crew. “Our PlaneBook app for iPad, which made its debut in 2011, is designed and marketed as an electronic document management app for the flight deck. It can, however, serve as an EFB, provided it is approved by the owner’s aviation regulatory authority for this purpose,” McGee continues. “The PlaneBook app contains all the reference documents a flight crew could ever need, including the aircraft flight manual, operating manual, quick reference handbook, pilot’s checklist, and master minimum equipment list, just to name a few. A logical arrangement, extensive use of hyperlinks and a robust search functionality make it simple to

navigate and locate data. There are nearly 8,000 subscribers to the PlaneBook app.” A companion to PlaneBook is the Gulfstream Performance iPad app, available for G650ER, G650, G550, G500, G450 and G280 flight crews. “The app features an intuitive interface for accomplishing comprehensive takeoff and landing performance calculations, with results provided in easy-to-interpret graphics,” McGee adds. “Performance calculations are based on the aircraft’s certified Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) performance data, and when connected to a mobile network or Wi-Fi, the Gulfstream Performance app uses real-time meteorological reports in its performance calculations.” Additionally, the app incorporates navigation database obstacle data to further assist pilots in the pre-mission planning process.

Improvements in EFB Hardware

In the beginning EFBs were simple laptops. The need was mainly moving away from reams of paper in the flight deck to something more manageable. “We just used laptops in the beginning. You had to fold them out and the keyboard would be in the way,” says Uwe Nitsche, chief executive officer, RocketRoute. “Then touchscreens started to evolve and we started moving to the earliest generation of tablets. “The first path of development was making the hardware more portable. The first functionality was search. Quickly getting to a document was the main aspect of interest in the early stages. And then of course things started moving forward.” The EFB hardware technology has evolved in parallel with computer technology standards: Touchscreen, sensitivity, quality of display, time of response. “The advent of digital technology, driven by consumer electronics, has allowed a comparable 120  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

A

evolution in the EFB industry,” Sweet notes. “The biggest advances include the exponential growth in the size of digital memory, electronic component miniaturization, ever faster microprocessor speeds, embedded GPS, and of course, giant leaps in connectivity from cellular to broadband.” “The revolution in the EFB industry came with the introduction of the iPad in 2010,” McGee specifies. “Improvements to data processing speed, graphics refreshment rates, storage capacity and location services have cemented the iPad as the leading form factor in the EFB industry.”

Functionalities of EFB Applications

Very much like the hardware, EFB software – the ‘apps’ – has also developed significantly and enabled ever more functionality in support of the safety and efficiency of business aircraft operations. “Some of the most important functionalities have to include charts and maps with integrated positioning capabilities both on the ground (taxi/take-off) and in the air, as well as the ability to utilize broadband connectivity to see real-time weather updates”, says Sweet. Jumelle, meanwhile, points out how the weather conditions may drastically change between flight preparation and flight execution. “Some weather applications propose weather prediction along the flight path before departure,” he says. “They also permit in-flight updates (observations and prediction) and enable the crew to anticipate strong weather phenomena, as the on-board weather radar may not have the range for such anticipation.” Moreover, parameters coming from the aircraft’s avionics can be useful on the EFB. “EFBs now host more and more applications that can be fed by the avionics instead of being manually entered by the

pilot (i.e. aircraft position, fuel on board, time of overflying a waypoint, gross weight etc.),” Jumelle highlights. “The avionics parameters retrieval on the EFB reduces the pilot workload and thus the risk of errors. Dassault Falcon proposes an EFB hardware solution (CMA-1310) for all our EASy aircraft. “The CMA-1310 receives avionics parameters and hosts the ‘FalconSphere’ suite of applications, which currently include documentation, performance modules, charts, weather, and will introduce an electronic flight folder in 2020”. Current EFB applications can have external data automatically ‘fetched’ into the application. And additionally, some EFB applications allow the user to perform calculations inside the application, notes McGee.

Areas of Particular EFB Development

EFB applications witnessing particular development include flight planning and performance calculation. The PPS Flight Planning System is a combination of a client-server-based solution and a cloud-based solution. “EFB technology constitutes the future of flight information management for flight crews. The PPS Flight Planning System integrates seamlessly with the majority of Class I and Class II EFB solutions on the market today through rapid data export/import flows”, offers Kristoffer Sejer Brødløs, marketing manager, Air Support. The basic components include the core planning system with its essential route generator, a webbased briefing platform and a sub-system to facilitate the exchange of flight planning data with third party entities, such as other integrated software systems along with ATC services. “Whereas some flight planning systems are proprietary in approach towards system integration, 122  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

the PPS Flight Planning System facilitates numerous integrations to third party software systems, mainly through APIs,” says Brødløs. “System integration is a key feature because the aircraft operator can stick to only replacing the existing flight planning system and still reap the benefits of using other types of best-in-class third party aviation software system. “Moreover, PPS provides the workflow our customers require to not only get their flight plan created as quickly as possible with very fast reply to changes in the plan, but also remain live in the briefing phase in order to always have the latest data available without having to recalculate everything via a remote server.” With regard to performance calculation Dassault has released an iPad compatible version of FalconPerf allowing quick and intuitive computation of Falcon take-off and landing performance. “FalconPerf for iPad will be critical in helping crews and operators optimize their mission and save fuel,” explains Frédéric Leboeuf, vice president, Falcon Operational Support. “Based on input from customer pilots and Dassault’s own flight operations, it’s designed to permit the quick calculation of aircraft payload requirements, including last-minute adjustments, and help ensure accurate performance limits.” The new app was released in parallel with an iPad compatible version of Dassault’s FalconSphere electronic flight bag suite, which hosts FalconPerf and a large number of other Falcon apps. FalconSphere on iPad includes many of the leading features of the basic EFB, including the ability to seamlessly prepare, manage and restitute Falcon missions. FalconPerf for iPad calculates takeoff and landing performance in compliance with AFM and Dassault recommendations. Airport data, including one-engine inoperative

“...this really plays in to what is going to happen in the next few years, when more congested airspace is expected.” - Uwe Nitsche, RocketRoute (OEI) contingency procedures are extracted from Jeppesen NavData and OpsData charts and are updated every 28 days. Among the graphically-displayed data items are take-off and landing distances for dry, wet and contaminated runways, a vertical cross-section view of the take-off flight path, a tabulated summary of the maximum weight variation with input, maximum take-off weight (MTOW), take-off safety altitude (TOSA) and maximum landing weight (MLW).

What’s the Future of EFB Technology?

EFB technology itself will continue to head in the direction of becoming smaller and lighter, making use of increased electronic component miniaturization. Screen resolution and size will almost always dictate EFB size, however. “While smaller and lighter are almost always good in anything electronic, with EFBs flight crews need the fastest processors with 4K resolution touch screens of optimal size,” Sweet explains. “With so many EFB solutions now available for business jets, there is also a focus upon the robust, reliable, broadband connection that’s needed to power such data-hungry apps. “A strong IP connection is essential if EFB applications are to deliver on promises to reduce fuel burn, make operational savings and improve inflight performance. “Inmarsat offers high-speed connectivity solutions that act as a platform for apps to deliver real-time insights to the cockpit,” he continues. “Our network

is designed to support third-party applications, from weather tracking to health monitoring, delivering the real-time information that business jets require to be safe and more efficient today and in the future.” McGee highlights that research is taking place to develop software that is ‘aware’ of the airplane in which it resides, knowing host parameters such as aircraft configuration, aircraft health and trend monitoring. Nitsche believes that the continuous development of EFB technology will be an enabler of the air traffic management system of the future. “The flight routes have historically been pretty much stuck to the flight plans filed the night before or the morning of a given flight day because the big challenge has historically been getting the paperwork to the pilot,” he reflects. “The route that has been planned and the paperwork associated with it also defines the fuel requirement. Historically it was not desirable to do these things at the last minute because it was really hard to get the briefing to the crew and get things all done. With EFB technology having matured and being available at a reasonable cost it is now possible to look at changing processes from the formerly static briefings. “So now one can start changing routes at the very last minute and this means we can react to weather or airspace congestion much more quickly – and this really plays in to what is going to happen in the next few years, when more congested airspace is expected.” ❙

Having a broad understanding after working in several countries on many aircraft types and avionics system, he has contributed to several work groups and committees, including for NextGen, Airport Lighting, Human Factors, Unmanned Aircraft and Low Vision Technology. In retirement, he is striving to give back the knowledge gained with an eye on aviation’s future direction.

What’s the Future of Avionics? (Part 5) Ken Elliott continues his reversed time journey from the future back to the present, covering the evolution of avionics. This month, he expands his discussion of Primary Enabling Electronic Technology... lthough satellite dependent, and with its inherent vulnerability to be tampered with, Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) navigation remains the most accurate means of knowing where you are across the planet. Yet airworthiness authorities in the US are reluctant to decommission Distance Measuring Equipment (DME). DME remains an extremely reliable and accurate ‘line of site’ form of navigation. This method of navigating has been around for decades and uses Rho-Rho calculations to determine accurate distances and positioning. Historically, it was used along with Variable Omni Range (VOR) ground stations providing the less accurate Rho-Theta calculation. The FAA are smartly continuing the deployment and upkeep of DME as a backup for GPS within the contiguous US.

Drones like to use RTK GPS as a method of positioning and navigation. Manned aircraft use DGPS to achieve the same. Small drones particularly need to know where they are to within inches, and manned aircraft to within feet. Future aircraft will operate with greater versatility and will need to make decisions with even greater accuracy, depending upon their role. Vertical operations from small landing sites will naturally need higher accuracy than existing operations at airport runways. The two GPS technologies are defined as: • •

RTK-GPS: Real Time Kinematic operated by small drones, using carrier-based error correction; and DGPS: Pseudo Differential operated by manned aircraft, using code-based error correction.

A greater concern is the reliability and consistency of error. RTK GPS has less overall error, and DGPS can lack in the consistency of error. This is of crucial importance to precision navigation where, over time, there needs to be minimal variation in error. Both types of GPS require a fixed reference-based station signal and work better if receiving signals from different GPS satellite constellations. The following Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are currently operational: • • • • •

Communication as LTE and C2 (or C3)

Just as newer generations of people prefer texting to phoning, the world of technology continues to move away from a reliance on the human voice and more to the use of digitized versions of the same. If transactional aircraft communication is all digital, along with navigation, surveillance and diagnostics, then why not use a platform commonly deployed by the internet? Especially an internet widely understood, with a broad bandwidth, worldwide coverage and operating at lightning speed. That internet is fast becoming the reality and therefore is a perfect means to move digits of data on 128  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

and off aircraft. Already, drones are using LTE means and C2 (or C3) methods to move the data around. So, what are LTE and C2 (or C3)? LTE: Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is an existing implementation of 4G technology and was meant to meet the speed goal of one Gigabyte per second (Gbps). This never happened. The providers have only reached top speeds between 20-21 Megabytes per second (Mbps). 5G is still in development and implementation but should reach speeds that are twenty times faster than the 4G LTE goal. In other words, 5G can reach speeds of 20Gbps. Of course, we’re likely to see 5G in LTE format too, and it may be inferred that the internet is really a 3G/4G or later 5G, working at rates comparable to the LTE rate of the day. Current Air to Ground (ATG) speeds are akin to ground phone data and can reach up to 100Mbps. For the future aircraft, a bridge needs to be constructed that will permit six important criteria: 1) Cost per Megabyte, then Gigabyte and eventually Terabyte must be realistic to future demand and usage. 2) Latency (signal delay) of transmission will need to be virtually zero. 3) Bandwidth must allow sufficient, simultaneous data transfer for a multiplicity of aircraft functions. 4) Speed of data transfer must permit an aircraft to react as fast to remote commands as if the real pilot were in the cockpit, and to allow adequate response to 4D, compact airspace demands. 5) Reliability should be high enough to prevent signal unlock, degradation and compromise. 6) Security must be sufficient to prevent any form of tampering.

While not new to modern aircraft, the internet, when widely used as a tool to command and control the aircraft, would be new. We are at that threshold as the internet is applied to aircraft diagnostics, a function far beyond its versatility for cabin occupants. C2 (or C3): Command & Control (as C2) comes out of the military and special mission environment, where, for air forces, it is conventional to have a mission involving multiple aircraft, personnel, equipment and procedures controlled by a single command aircraft. This requires critical communication and therefore is often termed C3, to include that element. Because future aircraft will be operated remotely and within compact 4D airspace while responding to superfast data requirements, C3 will be critical to their success. Drones use C2 (or C3) constantly and that forms the link between the ground-based control and the active drone. Manned aircraft use the pilot in the loop as command and control, and specifically the pilot in command (PIC), as the final decision maker.

We may expect both the command and control function to gradually become autonomous and, by design, remote. We know, for sure, that the C3 element of communication has already morphed from voice to data. It is the nature of the data and how it is to be transported that will permit the transformation of aircraft to command and control functionality.

Recovery as Loss Link & Auto Return

Continuous linkage of command and control is essential for any remotely controlled mode of transport. Equally, if the link is lost or if the transport has any form of catastrophic failure, it must return to its home base. The latter assumes catastrophic to be limited to mission failure and not it’s ability to function as a basic aircraft. Today’s manned aircraft loss link would be construed as a failure to communicate to ATC or an inability to connect to satellites, for example to navigate. The autoreturn is the action of the pilot in command to return the aircraft to the nearest airport runway, if the failure warrants it. For the future aircraft, piloted remotely or

autonomously, the linkage of command and control will be as crucial as it is with drones today. The automated return function will be a multi-layered set of recovery procedures based on the criticality of the failure, with respect to phases of flight. For example, a minor loss of datalink or system failure could result in the virtual aircraft (including its airspace bubble) expanding, adding a greater buffer between itself, other aircraft and obstacles in the environment. On the other hand, a more significant event may trigger an internal automatic response to where the aircraft will cancel its mission and fly to the nearest suitable runway. It will also simultaneously corroborate with ATC and the entity that operates it. Note that ‘recovery’ can imply many levels of response. It should never be such that a total loss of datalink will immobilize an aircraft. The aircraft should always be able to recover and do something to safely ‘return’. However, when there is an internal failure that could impede the aircraft’s ability to fly, there may be

the option to deploy a parachute, as with some drones today. In the case of larger transport aircraft that may not have the glide capability to reach a road or a runway, this would require a safety system that would prevent, or render unlikely the ‘falling aircraft’ from fatally injuring persons on the ground. Airworthiness authorities are currently grappling with this issue when considering authorization of drones for operations Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS). A recent, well publicized, incident in Switzerland of a delivery drone’s catastrophic failure close to a school, highlighted that concern and shelved the client’s multientity program.

system operational status is new, while the ability to combine groups of sensors into an overall aircraft status is newer still. RTCA work group SC-236 and EUROCAE WG-79, Standards for Wireless Avionics Intra-Communication System (WAIC) has been developing recommendations for some time. The intention is to create and use WAIC devices operating in the FCC assigned band of 42004400 MHz, ironically also used by aircraft radar altimeter systems. Apart from recommendations on avoiding interference with radar altimeters, the standards recently issued as DO378, provide a permissible power allowance (flux density) and other criteria. Other standards covering passive RFID devices include SAE AS5678 (and newer AS6023), along with ATAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spec2000. Active RFIDs will locally transmit their data to a hub. Multiple hubs will combine the data through a central controller, and add to the aircraftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall digital signal, sent to the remote pilot and cloudbased avionics for processing. This level of autonomous and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;virtual live sensing and monitoringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; allows for the proper commands in response to any aircraft deficiency. All in all, an aircraft of the future, working as a closed loop system via its remote avionic cloud, will function fast and accurately because www.AVBUYER.com

of sensors like RFIDs. It is important to achieve a significant degree of sensing and response right at each aircraft subassembly. This is achieved by the wireless communication of status from the source and all along the aircraftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monitoring pipeline. This will minimize the wiring, connectors and points of failure. It also reduces weight and takes less time to push and pull data around the total circuit. Just as we route internet data, and use Bluetooth in place of handsets, in modern cabins we can rapidly transfer wireless data from aircraft components to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;high density collectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that modify the data to a form that is suitable for inter-satellite communication.

Do Engine Maintenance Programs Help Older Jet Values? It can be tempting to remove an older business airplane from its engine maintenance program to save costs. Engine Assurance Program’s Sean Lynch tells Dave Higdon why this is a bad idea… ne of the keys to economical business aircraft use is the pure longevity of the airplanes we fly. Older airframes need not face obsolescence thanks to processes that allow upgrades and improvements — changes which can provide aging aircraft with avionics and interiors on a par with newer jets. Thanks to Supplemental Type Certificates and the advanced systems produced specifically for retrofit, a 30-year-old jet can fly neck-and-neck with one produced only yesterday. As a result, many operators continue to fly airframes that are years

older than average. If there's a weak link, however, it parallels the tired human heart that’s worked hard, worn out and is subject to more maintenance than before. That's why maintenance technicians advise taking the best possible care of the aircraft's heartbeat: its powerplants. The uncomfortable truth is that as engines age they can become more expensive to maintain. But keeping abreast with that engine's maintenance needs can help it live longer, more efficiently and with greater reliability. www.AVBUYER.com

Dave Higdon is a highly respected aviation journalist who has covered all aspects of civil aviation over the past 36 years. Based in Wichita, he has several thousand flight hours, and has piloted pretty much everything from foot-launched wings to combat jets. Contact him via Dave@avbuyer.com

The Economies of Age

Often as a business aircraft ages it becomes more expensive to operate and maintain, and as costs grow the value of the aircraft declines. The process can become something of a death spiral for the aircraft. As its value and potential use decline, the willingness to spend money maintaining it weakens. And by missing some key work needs, the asset's value declines further. That value decline becomes particularly acute when those expensive turbine engines approach their age and/or overhaul limits. But it doesn't have to be that way… According to Sean Lynch, of Engine Assurance Program, which delivers hourly engine coverage at affordable costs to operators flying legacy aircraft with legacy engines, operators haven't so much been overlooked in the marketplace as been priced out of sticking with their original programs. “As the values of older, legacy jets fall, no parallel decrease comes in the costs of powerplant maintenance and the fees for engine service programs,” Lynch notes. “We realized back in 2010 a big difference between what it costs to maintain engines and the cost of maintenance programs,” he recalls. “The cost of a lot of parts have gotten substantially less expensive but those savings were not necessarily being passed on to the customers.” What started as something of a hobby project evolved into a business after Lynch used his background in parts and aircraft sales to develop spreadsheets tracking parts costs for older engines. EAP started the financial model in 2010, launching the service in 2015. “We've basically doubled in size each year since then,” Lynch reveals. EAP's growth came from developing a core focus on several older powerplants, leading the company to develop coverage for more than 20 engine types in less than five years. “We're focusing on the segment of the market that's truly been overlooked,” Lynch says.

The Old Business Aircraft Challenge

“Our biggest challenge is with people who've decided to leave their engine program,” he www.AVBUYER.com

explained. The most cited reason tends to be value and cost. Unfortunately, operators often fail to appreciate the value such programs bring to a business aircraft. “When [operators leave their engine program] it truly seals the fate of that airplane,” Lynch notes, citing a pair of real-world examples. “A Dassault Falcon 50 was pulled off its program four years ago and sold a year ago. Before selling, the operator figured they could save $50k by taking the aircraft off the engine program. The aircraft was worth more than $1m when the owner took it off the program, but it lost that value because of the program removal. “When the owner sold the airplane, it was fully deducted for the lack of an engine program. It sold for less than a half million.” Ultimately, it cost them $50,000 more with the loss of airframe value than the savings they made by not accruing for an engine program. And all the while they received no benefit of engine coverage, Lynch emphasizes. In Lynch's second example, the jet was doomed. “A Dassault Falcon 900B was taken off its engine maintenance program,” he relayed. “Three years later it was parted-out because there was no equity in the engines when the owner decided to sell.” The value loss was directly related to these two aircraft's lack of participation in a maintenance program – particularly for those engine types. “That's the real risk of operating without a maintenance program; the financial loss when it comes time to sell.” So, although cost saving is the usual reason given for dropping an engine service program, particularly for older aircraft, that is clearly a shortterm view. Today, Lynch says, EAP is the fastest growing engine program for Falcon 50s and Falcon 900Bs. “Engine maintenance programs add value above and beyond their costs.”

Developing a Program for Unmet Need

Prior to starting EAP, Lynch worked as a business aircraft broker for 10 years and then for five years as an aircraft parts vendor. It was when a client who was new to Business Aviation approached Lynch for help in pricing a support program that he began to consider the opportunity of starting something new.

airplane, they often want to buy something that can get rolled on to the program,” Lynch says. “I have to tell you, it's been fun. I've never been involved in a market where people are pleased that you're bringing some competition in the market.” EAP recognized that different operators need or want different levels of support for their powerplants. To that end, EAP offers three programs tailored to the age and time on the engines and the level of coverage the operator wants.

Sean Lynch

“Engine programs don't cost, they pay; they do so by helping retain value.”

“I had just quoted the engine maintenance program cost to this new-to-aviation buyer and when we spoke about price the owner was shocked at the accrual costs,” Lynch recalled. “I started to survey engine shops, collect statistical data and – as a hobby – I started plugging all that data into spreadsheets.” He worked with others to develop the business model he uses today. “It was just dumb luck that this worked out.” Today, EAP runs a lean operation with six full-time staff members, several contractors who work for EAP and by using the existing networks of engine shops. “When customers are buying a different 136  Vol 23 Issue 10 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Comprehensive Engine Coverage: This option covers scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance, including life-limited parts, linereplaceable units (LRUs), removal and re-installation (R&R), shipping, rentals, line maintenance, and 24/7 access to Engine Assurance Program’s AOG assistance. Catastrophic coverage is also included. Operators get full coverage with only 75 hours as the yearly minimum. Proportional Coverage: An option designed for those starting the program without a full buy-in. As an example, EAP will cover the next overhaul on a 50% basis if the operator has already flown through 50% of the time prior to the next overhaul at the time of enrollment. This includes all coverage from the comprehensive program, except that it’s covered at the proportional rate. Catastrophic Failure Coverage: This is limited to the catastrophic failure of the engine prior to its next scheduled event. The Catastrophic Failure Option also includes unscheduled failure of LRUs.

Conclusion

Having and maintaining coverage brings value to the aircraft, an important factor that is too often overlooked by operators unhappy with enginemaintenance program costs. Lynch explained, “Engine programs don't cost, they pay; they do so by helping retain value. “When the engines are on a program, operators are forced to be disciplined and follow the inspection and maintenance efforts. But when that stuff (engine-maintenance programs) gets thrown out, there's a potential safety issue because of the lack of routine engine maintenance.” T More information from www.eap.aero www.AVBUYER.com

Dassault Reports Sales Flourish

Airbus Corporate Helicopters has flown the second prototype of its new five-bladed H145 at its Donauwörth facility. The helicopter will be used for additional flight tests to achieve EASA certification of the new five-bladed H145 in early 2020. The first prototype is currently performing a high altitude test campaign in South America, while the second will be mainly used for autopilot testing, performance and airframe structural validation. www.airbus.com

In a recent report, Dassault’s Eric Trappier noted how the book-to-bill ratio is greater than one, thanks partly to an unexpected sales flourish in summer 2019…

D

assault CEO Eric Trappier reported a sudden, unexpected flourish of Falcon sales in July and August following a ‘very flat’ first half performance, in which only seven business jets were sold. By August 31, the French OEM had sold 26 year-to-date, taking the backlog to 56 Falcons, with 23 delivered— “a book-to-bill of greater than one,” Trappier said. According to Trappier, the Falcon 6X is the big hope for Falcon sales. The 6X program is “progressing in line with schedule” for service entry in 2022, said Trappier. Work has started on wing subassemblies while four Pratt & Whitney Canada PW812D engines are undergoing tests, with more than 1,000 hours

achieved to date - some of which have been on a flying testbed. And Trappier added that work continues on the “Future Falcon,” but remains “confidential” at this point in time.

Global Markets

Overall, Trappier described Falcon sales in most parts of the world as “a bit flat", with the US providing the exception. Nevertheless, undisclosed hedging strategies have been put in place to protect against any slide in the strength of the US dollar relative to the Euro. He expressed hope for China and—as “a separate market”—the rest of Asia, where Dassault continues to invest.

Bombardier announced that L.J. Aviation has expanded its fleet with its latest addition of two Challenger 350 aircraft. The high-performing Challenger 350 business jets join the company’s existing fleet of 40 aircraft and are available for charter in the Mid-Atlantic States. www.aero.bombardier.com

PRODUCTS & SERVICES Wichita: Where Aviation Took Wing

Branding agency Greteman Group has produced a new book, “Wichita: Where Aviation Took Wing,” that documents the Midwestern city’s history and contributions to aviation. The firm’s namesake and president, Sonia Greteman, said the idea for the book arose from the agency’s four years of research developing displays at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport highlighting the city’s aviation history. At its peak, the 173-page book notes, Wichita had 16 aircraft manufacturers, six aircraft engine factories, 11 airports, and a dozen flying schools. Today, the city is home to Textron Aviation (Beechcraft and Cessna), Bombardier Learjet, commercial aircraft supplier Spirit AeroSystems, and Airbus North America Engineering. Sonia Greteman, whose father was chief photographer for Boeing Wichita, explained it was a confluence of people, geography, and good fortune that spurred the development of Wichita and its moniker, the “Air Capital of the World.” www.gretemangroup.com

PRODUCTS & SERVICES Dassault Gets TAG MROs

Gulfstream Expands in Appleton

Dassault Aviation announced last month that it has now completed its acquisition of TAG Aviation’s MRO organization. That includes TAG's service centers in Geneva, Switzerland; Farnborough, UK; Paris Le Bourget; Lisbon, Portugal; and satellite operations in Luton, UK, and Moscow. Rebranded as TAG Maintenance Services (TMS), the MRO network will operate as a wholly-owned Dassault Aviation affiliate.

Gulfstream has expanded its MRO operations at Wisconsin’s Appleton International Airport with the opening of a newly built aircraft maintenance facility. The nearly 190,000 squarefoot/17,652-square-meter building, northeast of the airport terminal, was constructed with an investment of approximately $40m. The expansion to the Appleton service center includes 101,853 sq ft/9,462 sq m of hangar space, which will accommodate 12 Gulfstream G650ER or G650 aircraft.

IFR Cert for Bell 407GXi with Garmin G1000H NXi

Duncan Aviation holds or has access to 42 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for FAA-approved ADS-B equipment for more than 100 models.

American Kodiak August.qxp_Layout 1 18/07/2019 16:31 Page 1

The Kodiak 100 One Plane That Can Do It All www.AmericanKodiak.com An American Department of Wildlife and Fisheries chose the Kodiak 100 because it is easy to work on, easy to fly, and safe with great flight handling. For the complete story, visit our website at www.americankodiak.com/blog

RUGGED

One of their specialties is duck and geese surveys – taking estimates of the duck and geese population from the air. They need an aircraft that the flight crew could safely maneuver in tight spaces with tough landing gear and rugged tundra tires for all their field landing missions.

RELIABLE

Safety was a top concern. The Kodiak 100 can deliver their entire team – biologists, observers, flight crew and equipment – safely to remote locations involving variable takeoffs and landings, weather conditions and lengths of flight. The Kodiak 100’s unmatched STOL performance, sturdy landing gear, advanced avionics and turbine power reliability (750HP) make it all possible.

VERSATILE

The cargo pod allows the department to manage passenger and cargo capacity that optimizes use of space in the Kodiak 100. They can carry 2 or 3 biologists, observers and flight crew with comfort. The large opening in the back even allows them to easily relocate whooping cranes as necessary.
