Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT

Paula Derks

Part 23 Rewrite: Welcome News for GA Community s the industry representative for avionics professionals in the General Aviation (GA) industry, the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) participated in the committee to rewrite the Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 23 regulation. For the past decade, both industry and the FAA have been hard at work to modernize Part 23 certification standards for small aircraft, to promote the installation of safety-enhancing equipment. It was a much-needed rewrite for both the FAA and industry, and it was a long time coming. Costs to engineer a product and bring it to market were burdensome and the road was long to maneuver through the tedious certification pathway to gain approval. Both airframe and avionics manufacturers would spend millions on testing and certifying before they could actually sell and install the product. Since this rewrite became law, the GA industry has witnessed several new product and services announcements in the avionics industry using some of the methodology brought forward in the Part 23 rewrite. These new, lower-cost certified products used a streamlined method of compliance to bring them to market. This is great news, though what is not great is the continued confusion about how these products came to market. After three years of attempting to clarify the certification process of these new products, people – even the manufacturers themselves – are incorrectly labeling these products as “non-certified”. That is simply not true. You may know that more than three years ago, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) introduced a new STC for the Dynon D10 Electronic Flight Information System. Up to that time, Dynon was known for non-certified quality avionics systems built for the experimental aircraft industry. The EAA announcement rocked the industry, and people demanded to know why the EAA was given preferential treatment by the FAA in allowing this non-certified piece of equipment into a certified airplane. First, the EAA was not given preferential treatment; it simply used the currently written regulations to approve the Dynon product as part of the STC instead of using

A

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

the traditional TSO method. In the STC, it used the new ASTM system validation standard as an alternate means of compliance instead of going the usual RTCA route. The process simply had not been done before, so naturally confusion ensued. Secondly, as quickly as that product was introduced, people started referring to it as “non-certified”. While the Dynon products were approved via the commercial parts category of the regulations, the product itself was certified through the EAA STC. All the follow-on parts introduced since the EAA STC have all been certified. Ultimately, manufacturers are using a method for certifying products with regulations that have been written for years. THEY ARE STILL CERTIFIED, but the pathway to certification is through PMA and not TSO. So, despite the outcry that the FAA is now allowing non-certified equipment to be installed into certified aircraft, it is just not true. As a result of the Part 23 rewrite as well as numerous industry initiatives, the introduction of these new, lowercost alternatives have reinvigorated an otherwise dying sector of recreational aircraft upgrades.

Twice the Safety, Half the Cost

A common theme during the rewrite of Part 23 regulations was “twice the safety at half the cost”. That rings true even more so today. For this segment of recreational flier, they now have a plethora of exciting “CERTIFIED” avionics options to enhance their safety while flying. Industry insiders fully expect various forms of this streamlined method of certification to work its way into the Business Aviation community too. As exciting new technologies in both airframes and avionics advance, so should the method of compliance - all the while ensuring that safety is number one. Let’s keep it going, and remember: Contrary to industry chatter, these are certified systems! T As AEA president, Paula Derks presides over the international trade organization that provides regulatory representation, training and member services to nearly 1,300 GA electronics entities in 43 countries. Derks previously served as chairman of the board of trustees for the Aviation Accreditation Board International and is a charter member of Women in Avi ation.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Business Aviation Market Overview

Moving into the second half of 2018, most Business Aviation market indicators are pointing in a positive direction, which bodes well for a strong finish to the year for key industry players. Rollie Vincent assesses… elatively strong economies in the US and in Europe are providing tailwinds that are as welcome as a warm sea breeze at the end of summer. Aircraft utilization rates, perhaps the most fundamental of all bizav health indicators, are generally trending upwards on a Year-over-Year (YoY) basis, which is as it should be with more new aircraft coming into the market than are being retired. With the worldwide business jet fleet growing at 3.3% CAGR in the last 10 years, one would expect that overall utilization levels, whether in cycles (a takeoff and landing) or flight hours, would be accelerating at this pace or even better, as younger aircraft tend to fly more than older aircraft. While we are amongst the first to take satisfaction in higher aircraft utilization and in

R

knowing that more people are experiencing the best way to fly, an annual growth rate of about 3% should not necessarily be the subject of a long letter home to Mama. She may have better things to read, like The Economist or Investor’s Business Daily.

Tightening Market Segments

Evidence is sprouting up about stronger (read ‘higher’) pricing for sellers of younger, used business jets. This is absolutely as expected with tight inventory levels of the most attractive models. As of mid-August 2018, just eight examples of the Gulfstream G650/G650ER were listed as ‘For Sale’ according to JETNET data, representing just 2.8% of the installed base of more than 300 aircraft. For folks preferring Bombardier or Dassault

Contact him via rvincent@rollandvincent.com

value of the services provided by an experienced aircraft dealer/broker and their transaction teams to help navigate through these tight market conditions cannot be overemphasized.

Market Optimism

Owners and operators of turbine-powered fixedwing business aircraft are feeling optimistic about current business conditions, especially in the US and Europe. Results from the in-progress Q3 2018 JETNET iQ Survey suggest that the positive sentiment recorded earlier this year is continuing, with optimists outnumbering pessimists by about five-to-one worldwide. This is a precursor to possible interest in buying/flying a business aircraft. But can people afford it?

Corporate Profits

US after-tax corporate profits spiked by 15% to a remarkable $2tn on an annualized basis in the early part of 2018, buoyed by tax law changes favoring repatriation of internationally-held profits. With many US companies flush with liquidity, and with lending/leasing rates still at historically attractive levels, there appears to be little issue with “ability to pay” as an inhibitor to business aircraft sales.

brands, the current worldwide market for both the Global 6000 (3.6% of the fleet is ‘For Sale’) and Falcon 7X (5.4%) has shifted towards favoring the seller. Other examples reflect a similar market dynamic, with buyers having to move quickly – and pay something at or close to the asking price – if they want to see themselves in the Captain’s chair of one of these elegant business jets. Total retail used business jet transaction volumes through H1 2018 were about flat YoY, no doubt throttled back by the age and maintenance status of the available inventory. Who would have thought that more than half of business jets built would still be flying more than 40 years after delivery? For used business turboprops, the in-service fleet is even older, with about half the fleet still in service after 50 years. Of approximately 1,900 business jets currently listed ‘For Sale’ globally, less than one-in-five were delivered new in the last 10 years. For buyers looking for a ‘smoking hot’ deal on a relatively young used business jet, those days are in the history books. As always, but especially now, the Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

The key questions start with: • Is there a need? • Is this a good place to park my capital? Companies are actively allocating capital across a corporate portfolio of asset classes, and getting a ‘fair share’ of this distribution is no doubt Job #1 to aircraft sales professionals. Those who understand international economics and finance will do very well in today’s market. We continue to expect strong H2 2018 sales results, especially in the US as buyers satisfy their needs, wants and curiosities about all the new and used aircraft and related services in today’s marketplace. For now, let the good times roll! We’ll be monitoring the market and doing our best to keep you informed about the latest conditions. On the radar: all of the complexities of Brexit, a new US Congress, Korean nukes, Russian intrigues, Turkish delights and a host of other challenges will keep us all tuned in to the latest developments. And that’s not to mention several new and enticing aircraft that are expected to certify and deliver in H2 2018. We live - and we continue to fly - in very interesting times! continued on page 20 MI www.navigating360.com

Flight Activity - North America TRAQPak’s review of Year-over-Year (YoY) flight activity (July 2018 vs. July 2017) indicates that July 2018 recorded a marginal increase. Month-over-month saw a decrease from June 2018 (see tables below). The results by operational category were mixed in the YoY comparison with Part 91 activity providing the largest yearly increase. Fractional also posted a gain while Part 135 activity fell for the second straight month. The aircraft categories were mostly positive with Large jets posting the largest gain from 2017. Light jets, however, posted a YoY decrease in July.

Month-over-Month

July Business Aviation flight activity posted mixed results in the MoM comparison. The Part 91 segment posted the largest monthly decrease, while Fractional flight activity increased over June 2018. Aircraft categories were mostly negative with turboprops posting the only monthly increase. Large jets produced the largest monthly decline, meanwhile.

Flight Activity – Europe According to WingX Advance, there were 94,002 Business Aviation departures in Europe in July, marking a new record for July activity in Europe. As many as 60,178 of these flights were business jets… YoY growth in total activity was 4% in July, taking the YTD trend to +3.0%. The busiest country was France, although demand there was down by 1% YoY (largely due to a decline in Large jet flights). The other top markets enjoyed moderate-to-strong growth, including the UK and Germany where flights were up 7% YoY. Greece came in as 7th busiest country, with growth of 11%. The Football World Cup in Russia was reflected in a 26% increase in YoY flights between Russia and Europe. Flights from France to Russia were up 7%, from Spain to Russia up by 17%, and from the UK to Russia, flights were up by more than 130%. Business Aviation flights within Europe were up 4%, and were stronger in Western than Southern Europe. European flights to North America were up by 5%, and Middle East connections were down 13% in July. Charter/AOC activity accounted for almost 60% of all activity, growing 3.9% YoY. “The Football World Cup helped in boosting Business Aviation activity to its highest ever monthly level in July, with business jets 6% busier than back in 2008,” Richard Koe, Managing Director, WingX Advance summarized. “There was balanced growth in Large, Mid-size and Small jet activity, with continued shift in demand towards Charter, although Private flights were also up. “As with last year, the impetus for growth this summer is the high-end leisure market, with the distinction that Mykonos rather than Ibiza is attracting the most growth.” MI www.wingx-advance.com continued on page 26

JETNET H1 2018 Used Airplane Market Data According to JETNET, fleet ‘For Sale’ percentages for all sectors were down in its June comparison. June 2018 was the lowest “For Sale” percentage (9.1%) for business jets since the Great Recession began… Generally, JETNET notes, across all six aircraft sectors reported, inventories are down, and full sale transactions had mixed results, with little to no change to decreases in H1 2018 versus H1 2017. Specifically: Business jets are showing a flat start in the first six months of 2018, with a 0.2% increase in used sale transactions, but are taking less time to sell (26 days) than last year. Business turboprops saw no change in sale transactions, while taking more time to sell (13 days).

JSSI Flight Index: BizAv Activity Soars

Turbine helicopters saw a slight increase in YTD sale transactions, up 0.6%. Piston helicopters showed a decline of 8.1% in sale transactions. Commercial Jets and Commercial Turboprops were down in full sale transactions, at -9.1% and -0.8% respectively, in the YTD comparisons.

For the first six months of 2018 there were a total of 4,401 aircraft and helicopters sold, with business jets (1,344) and commercial jets (1,005) leading all types and accounting for 53% of the total. The number of sale transactions across all market sectors decreased by 2.9% compared to H1 2017. MI www.jetnet.com

According to the JSSI Business Aviation Index for Q2 2018 (tracking utilization of approximately 2,000 business aircraft worldwide) average per aircraft flight hours exceeded the 30-hour ceiling for the first time in a decade. “As we entered the summer season, one of the strongest periods of the year for flight activity, we fully expected to see an increase in aircraft utilization. However, the continued growth this year has been exceptional,” noted Neil W. Book, president and CEO, JSSI. The JSSI Business Aviation Index tracks and reports on the global flight activity and utilization of business aircraft, including jets, turboprops and helicopters. This utilization data ultimately provides useful insights into the state of global economic conditions. Key findings in the second-quarter data include: • •

AMSTAT H1 2018 Used Aircraft Market Analysis According to AMSTAT, 5% of the Heavy Jet market group turned over in the first six months of the year, the best first six months in this group since 2007… The latest - AMSTAT report breaks the market into Heavy Jet (>40,000lbs), Medium Jet (20,000-40,000lbs), Light Jet (<20,000lbs) and Turboprop groups and then further reviews these groups using the following age segments: Newer (<10 years), Mid-Age (11-20 years) and Older (>20 years). At a macro level, there were modest increases in the number of Jets and Turboprops sold in H1 2018 compared to H1 2017, but the overall active population of these aircraft also increased. A more relevant comparison is to look at the percentage of the active fleet that sold by group and age segments. Heavy Jets: All age segments performed better in H1 2018 than in H1 2017. In each Heavy Jet age segment the percentage of active fleet sold in H1 2018 increased over H1 2017 from 4.2% to 5.7% in the Older segment; 5% to 6% in the Mid-Age segment; and 3.2% to 3.9% in the Newer segment. Medium Jets: 5.1% of the fleet sold in H1 2018, matching transaction activity in the same period in 2017 which itself outperformed the first six months of the previous two years. At a segment level, only the Older Medium Jet performance in H1 2018 beat their 2017 performance. Light Jets: Did not perform as well with 4.8% of the fleet turning over in H1 2018 versus 5.1% during H1 2017. Despite the overall Light Jet performance, 4.7% of the Newer Light Jet age segment turned over in H1 2018, exceeding 4.2% in H1 2017. Turboprops: 3.9% of the fleet turned over in H1 2018, modestly up from 3.8% during the same period the year before. The Newer Turboprop slightly underperformed with 3.7% of the fleet turning over in H1 2018 compared to 3.9% the year before. H1 2018 transaction activity in the Older and Mid-Age groups, meanwhile, exceeded transaction activity in these groups in H1 2017.

Inventories at Their Lowest

At a macro level, 9.1% of the Business Jet fleet is ‘For Sale’, the lowest overall percentage since 1998; and 7.2% of the Turboprop fleet is ‘For Sale’, a historical low in this market. •

28

6.8% of the Heavy Jet fleet is for sale compared to 9% a year ago and the lowest percentage since 1998. The greatest YoY contraction has occurred in the Mid-Age group (from 9.0% to 6.3%) and Newer (from 7.6% to 5.2%). 9.2% of the Medium Jet fleet is ‘For Sale’ compared to 10.7% a year ago, the lowest since 2000. The greatest YoY contraction has occurred in the Mid-Age group (11.6% to 9.6%) and Newer (6.2% to 4.8%). 10.7% of the Light Jet fleet is ‘For Sale’ compared to 11.7% a year ago. The greatest YoY contraction has occurred in the Newer group (5.6% today versus 7.9%).

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

The greatest YoY contraction in the Turboprop market has been from 7.5% to 5.7% in the Mid-Age segment.

Average Asking Price Data

Heavy Jets: The Average Asking Price for Newer Heavy Jets is at $26.5m, up 8.1% YoY and 17.7% YTD. In contrast, the Average Asking Prices of Older and Mid-Age Heavy Jets have remained largely unchanged. Medium Jets: The Average Asking Price for Newer Medium Jets is at $7.2m, up 4.4% YoY, but down 3.1% YTD. In comparison, the Older and Mid-Age segments are off 16.9% and 9.5% YoY, and 3% and 4.2% YTD. Light Jets: The Average Asking Price for Newer Light Jets is at $3.3m off 2% YoY but up 4.8% YTD. In comparison, the Average Asking Price for Mid-Age Light Jets is up 5.2% YoY and up 9.8% YTD to $1.9m. The Average Asking Price for Older Light Jets is now below $700k. Turboprops: The Average Asking Price for Newer Turboprops is up 11.1% YTD to $2.9m and up 5.4% YoY. The Mid-Age Turboprop Average Asking Price is flat YoY but up 4.4% YTD to $1.7m.

Sales during Q2 2018 were >$682.1m, a 17.8% increase compared to the <$578.8m in Q2 2017. In H1 2018, both the retrofit and forward-fit markets have seen double-digit increases in sales compared to H1 2017, with the retrofit market up an impressive 18.1%. Of the more than $1.3bn in sales during H1 2018, 57.5% came from the retrofit market (avionics equipment installed after original production), while forward-fit sales amounted to 42.5% of sales. According to the companies that separated their total sales figures between North America (US and Canada) and other international markets, 76.8% of sales H1 2018 occurred in North America and 23.2% internationally. "The Q2 report shows continued and significant increases in sales for both the retrofit and forward-fit markets during the first half of the year," said AEA President Paula Derks. "It is another positive indicator for the overall health of the industry. “We have now seen six-straight quarters of positive Year-over-Year sales growth dating back to the end of 2016."

Asia-Pacific Market Q2 2018 Update The Q2 2018 edition of Asian Sky Quarterly is available from Asian Sky Group (ASG), focusing exclusively on the Asia-Pacific Business Aviation market, used business jets and civil helicopters… “Over the course of the last 12 months, the business jet market has swung almost 180 degrees from where it was in Q2 2017 to where we find ourselves in Q2 2018 seeing the emergence of a strong seller’s market manifested by lower inventory levels and rising prices,” offered ASG Managing Director, Jeffrey Lowe. “This last quarter saw a much higher level of business jet transactions (96) than Q2 2017 (83) and 2016 (70). However, optimism, which has been on a steady rise since Q2 2016, finally plateaued in the last quarter. So despite the overall strength of the market at the moment, we are seeing small pessimistic feelings popping up which could be an ominous trend for the future.” continued on page 32  MI www.asianskymedia.com 30

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition Asset Insight’s market analysis on July 31, 2018 covered 93 fixed-wing models and 1,606 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’, and revealed a 0.4% increase to the tracked fleet and a 1.7% decrease to the average ask price… Trading assets in July represented, for the most part, aircraft carrying a higher Quality Rating. For Sale’ Medium Jets and Turboprops posted a Quality Rating and Maintenance Exposure improvement while the figures for Large and Small jets degraded (see Table A). Overall the tracked fleet’s Quality Rating remained within the ‘Very Good’ range, with the figure decreasing slightly to 5.196, on Asset Insight’s scale of -2.5 to 10, reflecting a slight increase in the number of upcoming maintenance events. At the same time, average Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) decreased (improved) 1.1% to $1.422m, as the inventory fleet’s near-term maintenance events are anticipated to be less expensive. Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio 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%. The July analysis revealed that 51.2% of all tracked models and 63.7% of the tracked fleet posted an ETP Ratio in excess of 40%. The tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio worsened for the fourth consecutive month, climbing to a record-setting 67.4% from June’s 67%. • • • •

Turboprops posted the lowest (best) ETP Ratio at 52.8% (but it was also the group’s highest (worst) 12-month figure); Large jets followed at 62.1%, worse than last month’s 59.8%; At 70.2%, Medium jets posted an improvement compared to last month’s 72.1%; and Small jets worsened for the fourth consecutive month to 76.5% from 74.5%.

Market Summary Large Jets: Inventory aircraft decreased by another six units and the fleet has retained its ‘Excellent’ Quality Rating, now going on 14 consecutive months, although at a slightly lower 5.317. Upcoming maintenance is anticipated to be more expensive, and that worsened the group’s Financial Exposure through a 1.2% increase, its fourth consecutive degradation and a 12-month high (worst) figure. Asset Insight believes some ‘middle age’ units will see pricing stability, if not a slight gain in valuation, due to the limited inventory of young, low-time units. Medium Jets: The inventory fleet increased by nine units, but the group’s Quality Rating climbed 1.43% to reach the ‘Excellent’ range (a 12-month best figure) while Maintenance Exposure fell 3.6% to post a 12-month low (best) figure. Ask Price increased 1.8%, but that was only $50k above the group’s lowest figure for the past twelve months. With the high number of inventory units, challenges continue for sellers while buyers can identify some great values. Small Jets: Inventory decreased by another three units in July. As in June, transacting aircraft leaned toward higher quality, once again degrading the ‘For Sale’ fleet’s Quality Rating (down 0.89% to a 12-month low) and Maintenance Exposure (worsening 2.4%). The group’s Quality Rating slipped to ‘Very Good’ and average Ask Price decreased 0.5%. As predicted last month, sellers of above average assets were able to generate better pricing. Turboprops: Identifying an asset offering good value within this group will require research, but buyers should consider investing the time, as the average Turboprop Ask Price decreased 1.8%, the group maintained its ‘Good’ Quality Rating while posting a 0.5% improvement, and Maintenance Exposure improved by 1.2%. This group’s statistics are leaning toward a seller’s market, and locating good value will be challenging. However, the tools to do so are inexpensive and readily available via the internet.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T OEM SHIPMENTS

How Many Business Turbines Were Shipped in H1 2018? The General Aviation Manufacturers Association announced delivery and billings data for the first two quarters of 2018. How did the numbers stack-up for business jet and turboprop deliveries? Mike Potts explores... otal aircraft deliveries were up from 1,001 aircraft in the first half (H1) of 2017 to 1,054 in H1 2018. Billings, however, continued to lag, indicative of continuing weakness in the upper ends of the jet market. Total billings were $8.5bn, down approximately 5% from the $9.03bn recorded last year. Jet deliveries were flat at 296 units, matching the total delivered in H1 2017. Turboprops were up 9.7% (the strongest gain among the segments) while piston products were up 6.4%. In raw numbers the turboprops were up from 237 units to 260 while the piston growth was from 468 units in H1 2017 to 498 this year.

The Jet Market

Looking at the specifics of the business jet market in H1 2018 is not an uplifting experience. Of 11 jet OEMs reporting to GAMA only three enjoyed better results than a year ago. But the news isn’t even that good because two of those three are brand new and weren’t delivering jets in H1 2017. It’s not that anyone has had a horrible year so far – most firms saw results very similar to what they had a year ago. In general, though, it's just not been quite as good. 38

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

The leader in business jets so far this year, by a wide margin, is Cessna, which reported delivery of 84 jets in H1 2018, compared with 81 in H1 2017. For Q2 alone, Cessna was up from 46 to 48. Cessna was the only traditional jet manufacturer with gains. Bombardier came second in jet deliveries with 65 units, matching its six-month total from a year ago although its Q2 total of 34 was down from 36 in Q2 2017. Bombardier’s Challenger 350 model was the largest selling single business jet model in H1 2018 with 26 deliveries. (Cirrus’ new SF50 model was a close second with 25 shipments, followed by Cessna’s new Citation Latitude with 24.) It’s possible that the big Gulfstream models also figure into this mix, but Gulfstre am doesn’t segment out its sales by model. Collectively the big Gulfstream models (G450, 550, 650 and 650ER) totaled 37 units for the first half of the year. Combined with the 15 smaller cabin Gulfstreams delivered, Gulfstream came third among business jet OEMs in H1 2018, with 52 units (down from the 60 units Gulfstream shipped in H1 2017). Number four in business jet deliveries was Embraer, with 31, do wn from the 39 it delivered last year. Both Embraer’s Q1 total of 11 and its Q2 total of 20 were off from the 15 and 24 they reported last year, respectively. Newcomer Cirrus was the fifth largest maker of business jets YTD, with 25 shipments; 10 in Q1 and 15 in Q2. Cirrus only began delivering jets in the Q2 2017, when it started out with two. If Cirrus continues to accelerate in the delivery departmen t it could 

challenge the established jet OEMs for the top positions in a year or two. Honda was next with 17 shipments, down from 24 in H1 2017, followed closely by Dassault with 15 (off from the 17 reported in 2017). Boeing reported four deliveries for H1, all coming in Q1, while newcomer Pilatus shipped three, and seems committed to a measured delivery schedule, at least initially. But we can look for steady outp ut from Pilatus that will likely place it in the middle of the current crop of jet OEMs. Bringing up the rear in the jet market for the first half of 2018 were One and Airbus, both with no reported deliveries. In looking at the overall health of the jet market today, it is significant to note that while three new players, Cirrus, Honda and Pilatus, have recently entered the market, the total of jets sol d this year is still flat compared with last year. Had these new players not joined the fray, I doubt the market would be even where it is today. We have a way to go before we can hope to achieve a jet market near the 800-unit range (such as we enjoyed in 2014).

The Turboprop Market

By comparison to the jet market, the turboprop market is going 'gangbusters', and is up 9.7% (but is actually doing quite a bit better). Based just on business turboprops the turboprop market is up 14.67% over a year ago – a huge increase. On a percentage basis, twin-engine turboprops are having a great year, up 38.71% over a year ago at 43 units (from 33). The turboprop market is only about two-thirds the size GAMA says it is, totaling only 172 airplanes in H1 2018. That's because GAMA’s total includes 88 agricultural airpl anes. The leader among those business turboprop-producing OEMs is Textron’s Beechcraft, with 40 shipments, up from 31 in H1 2017. Closely challenging for the title of Number One Turboprop OEM, however, is Textron’s Cessna segment, with 36 deliveries (up from 22 a year ago). Third place in business turboprop deliveries went to Pilatus (32), up fractionally from 31 last year. In fourth place was Piper (23, up from 19 in 2017) followed closely by Daher with 22, one unit off its prior year pace’s pace of 23. Next in turboprop shipments was Quest at 14, down from the 17 it enjoyed last year, and finishing out the turboprop segment was Piaggio with three, up from none a year ago, Pacific Aerospace (two, down from six), and Chinese manufacturer AVIC (no turboprop deliveries yet this year but two last year).

In Summary

So there you have it... Some markets like the turboprops are thriving but lack the size to be really meaningful. The all-important jet market is still mired in recession, although new products are making an industrious effort to revive it. For almost five years we’ve been waiting for the market to accelerate. It looks like we’re going to have to continue to wait for a while longer.

OWNERSHIP T OPERATING ADVANTAGES

Business Aircraft: How to Quantify the Time Saved Business aircraft provide many advantages for busy CEOs. Yet David Wyndham demonstrates that simply measuring time savings does not give the full picture… he July/August edition of Harvard Business Review published the results of research looking at how CEOs spend their time. The study collected, coded and analyzed data for over 60,000 CEO-hours in 15-minute increments. The average annual revenue of the companies these CEOs run is $13.1bn. The data was well researched and quantified, and it proved what seems obvious: CEOs are busy people. What also should become clear is the benefits that a business aircraft can have for these busy individuals, when used effectively. To fully grasp those benefits, however, we need to consider more than just the time saved by using

business aircraft. We need to consider the quality of that time, too.

The Travel Need

One take-away from the study is that where CEOs choose to spend their time is critical to their own effectiveness and signals the priorities for others within the company. According to the research, about half of the polled CEO’s work time was spent outside the company headquarters – so with the CEOs averaging 62.5 hours a week, about 33 hours are spent outside of headquarters. Face-to-face communication is the best way to learn what’s going on and to demonstrate to the

face-to-face. The use of a business aircraft comes to mind of course, but why not just use the airlines?

The Business Aircraft Travel Advantage

We’ve highlighted many times before how the use of business aircraft results in less time spent traveling. Much of the travel time reduction is the result of being able to travel to airports located convenient to the facility or customer; direct, non-stop flights (avoiding the need for connecting flights); and the fact that the business aircraft departs and waits on the CEOs schedule. In studies I’ve undertaken with clients, the travel time differences can range from a few hours to several days. I had one client that could fly to their plant in Nevada, have a four-hour meeting , and return home in a 12-hour day on the business aircraft. Undertaking that same trip via the airlines would have cost the client two nights away from home, due to the poor Airline connections. Yet even with city pairs well served by the airlines (i.e. New York to Chicago or London to Berlin) the business aircraft can take less time – and given the demands on a CEO’s time even an additional two hours wee kly can be worth their weight in gold. entire organization what’s important. Spending time with frontline employees, on the factory floor, in the showroom and out in the field demonstrates more than any well-crafted email or video that everyone has an important role to play towards the success of the company. These frontline visits also enable the CEO to get reliable information as to what is going on. Sales are an indicator of the health of a company, but so is talking with the sales clerk at the store. CEOs need to meet with investors, senior leadership teams, divisions heads, the board of directors and more. More than one-third of a CEO’s time was found to be spent reacting to and dealing with unfolding developments. This could be a crisis (i.e. a fire shutting down a factory, a developing trade war impacting future costs, a strike), or an opportunity to purchase a competitor or complimentary organization. Meanwhile, spending time with customers is also considered important, though the study showed that CEOs only spend about 3% of their time with customers, relying on others within the organization to be the interface. The CEOs polled within the research felt this was too little time. All the above should indicate clearly that a CEO is on-the -move, needs to be in many places, and plenty of travel is required to enable them to be Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

The Business Aircraft Quality Advantage

Business aircraft add value in other ways that airline travel cannot, taking us into the realm of quality of time. For example, the Harvard Business Review’s study also discussed the urgent need for CEOs to find room to think, reflect, relax, exercise and eat well. For many CEOs the time spent in a business aircraft gives them the space and opportunity to think and reflect. Brain research is showing that this quiet downtime, which was once thought of as unproductive, is necessary for the human brain to function at its most effective. Little opportunity is provided in a security queue, sitting on a packed Scheduled Airline flight, or waiting for a cab for anyone to reflect and be thoughtful. That four-hour round trip on a business aircraft, combined with allowing the time for a morning run and still being home for the kids’ bedtime is incredibly valuable to a CEO’s mental health and well-being to manage the immense demands placed on them every single day. The quality of the time spent on the business aircraft in whatever way the CEO decides to use it may just be the secret weapon of the supereffective CEO. T

How to Explore a Future Aircraft Upgrade Need One of the most exciting things that can happen to a corporate flight department is growth. But how do you keep a measured approach? Aviation Director Andre Fodor explores… here is excitement in seeing aircraft utilization increase, renewed interest in using airplanes to reach new customers, expand business and explore new destinations. The Flight Department team is energized by new challenges and the possibility of future aircraft upgrades. It is rare that such changes come through a major leadership announcement. More often, they’re incremental and require piecing together; fragmented tidbits of information that – once collated – provide hints of things to come. One of my previous Flight Departments operated an older, reliable Mid-size jet used exclusively to fly within the US. The department operated the aircraft that met its needs. It was spacious for the typical two- to three-hour legs flown and had a low operating cost. Business trips typically took us to destinations within 700nm from our base, and we landed on runways that fit our 5,500ft balanced field length. The first sign of a possible need for change came from a short exchange one day with our CEO who inquired if we could fly to Norway. Even with fuel-stops, I needed to question whether such a trip would be possible. Our avionics were old, and the limitations of flying our seasoned airplane

in the Arctic Circle were a concern. We certainly had some homework to do, but having assessed the possibilities and requirements, we flew the trip with our Mid-size jet. Multiple stops were necessary, but the destination would have been even more difficult to reach via Scheduled Airline. The results proved profitable to the company, and the Flight Department was assured more flying to similar destinations would come – and it did. Flight activity increased as the company prepared to acquire several smaller companies. Learning of the new destinations, it was clear that we could expect to fly longer trips more regularly, land and takeoff from shorter runways, and occasionally do both. With any cash reserves being used for expansion, however, this was not the time to be purchasing new aircraft. Nevertheless, if the company emerged from this project strong, we could be rewarded with a sizable aircraft upgrade…

Interim Planning for Expansion

So how did we harness the resource available to ensure that outcome? We knew what the existing Mid-size jet was capable of, and diligently set performance guidelines keeping us from becoming a ‘cowboy operation’.

With a focused approach on global excellence and creativity, Andre Fodor has managed flight operations for the U.N. and Flight Options as well as being a senior demonstration pilot and instructor for Embraer Aircraft. He is currently the Aviation Director at Johnsonville Sausage.

“We were rewarded with a new aircraft to enable the expanded mission need - and to our surprise, instead of upgrading we doubled the fleet.” Operational restrictions were clearly defined to avoid getting caught up in the excitement of expanding mission requirements. Upcoming inspections that would require the airplane to be down for extensive periods of time were accounted for, and a plan was developed to ensure the current aircraft could meet as much of the growing need as possible. Though a new aircraft wasn’t an immediate possibility, based on the new mission requirements research began into the selection of candidate models for the future upgrade and two prime candidates emerged which became the standards for comparison. Over the period of growth, whenever the existing Mid-size jet fell short of the trip requirements we would use supplemental lift, chartering one of the two candidate aircraft types to give passengers and crew the opportunity to experience them. To support the demand for more performance and higher aircraft utilization a two-option solution was developed to define which type of supplemental flying would be chosen. First, the trips were defined as follows: • •

One-Way Trip: Those on which passengers would travel and stay at a destination for three nights or more; Round-Trip: Any trip on which passengers would return in less time.

For the one-way trips, a pre-paid Fractional card (with a provider operating aircraft on the future acquisition shortlist) Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

was the better solution. This came with a higher hourly cost, but without positioning charges. For the round-trips, a relationship was developed with a charter operator that could access aircraft on my future upgrade list. In exchange for their being our go-to charter provider, we enjoyed concessions for short cancellations and free upgrades. Anytime we flew on one of the aircraft on the upgrade list, if a seat was available a member of the Fight Department (pilot, mechanic or flight attendant) would ride along and learn about the aircraft. Post-flight surveys were also conducted with our principals to validate what they liked or expected from these airplanes, which allowed us to develop a greater idea of what the perfect upgrade aircraft would be.

Living Happily Ever After…

The company succeeded in its bid for expansion. In the process flight hours and schedules grew, as did our principal’s appreciation for Business Aviation and its ability to facilitate the company’s travel needs. We were rewarded with a new aircraft to enable the expanded mission need – and to our surprise, instead of upgrading we doubled the fleet. A turboprop became our short-runway, regional missions aircraft and a Super-Mid-size jet was added for the longer legs and international trips. Moreover, we still used supplemental lift when needed. With a solid, well executed plan, both the company and the Flight Department were bigger, more meaningful and looking forward to many hours of exciting flying ahead. T

How Much Aircraft is too Much? Dave Higdon assesses the need to understand the associated costs of buying more aircraft than the mission requires. How can you be sure you’re buying the right jet for the mission? Read on… et’s assume your company has seen the uptick in the used business jet market and decided that now would be ideal to upgrade the aircraft it’s been operating for the last few years. Probably at this stage you’ll begin to encounter a few challenges. Firstly, demand for the size and type of aircraft that the company requires means it is in relatively tight supply compared to what was available on the market a year or two ago. And when supplies tighten prices tend to firm. Then, when the Chief Pilot schedules a look at

a candidate aircraft the following challenges may occur: • The aircraft sells before the chief pilot can get there; • The chief pilot arrives only to find demand pushed the price up; or • The airplane is still for sale, but it’s not worth the trip to see it. The reality is that this can be a frustrating time to be in the market. Now let’s imagine the Chief Pilot receives a tip-off about an off-market buying

Buying Jets 2.qxp_Finance 20/08/2018 16:44 Page 2

opportunity: a jet older and larger than the aircraft being sought. Its price is in the ballpark of what the company budgeted for the replacement aircraft. Essentially, the Chief Pilot has been told of a larger jet at a smaller jet price. Who wouldn't be tempted…?

Upsizing: It’s More Than Capacity

The larger-than-sought jet opportunity offers more seating, more carrying capacity, maybe even a little more speed. How can that not be a good idea, you wonder… Let’s start by examining the variables influenced by increased weight and size at the runway. And in all but a few cases the runway required for the larger jet will exceed both the minimum take-off and landing distance of the current smaller jet owned by the company. That means nothing operationally if the existing jet's regular destinations all offered runways longer than the existing airplane needs. But if the airports most-frequented by the existing airplane were in the ‘just-long-enough’ category, a larger jet could force unwelcome changes to the company's travel routines, essentially forcing the company to use airports further away from their intended destinations, adding to the travel time in both directions. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

That larger jet is also likely to consume more fuel, with one of two possible outcomes. The company could either stick to the existing fuel budget by forcing pilots to fly less, reducing the value of owning the airplane. Alternatively, the company could increase the operating budget. Neither approach holds much attraction – at least, not compared to ‘right-sizing’ the jet it chooses to replace the current aircraft. Next, bigger engines, a larger cabin and airframe, and a full-service galley all undoubtedly add to the cost of ownership. So now both the fuel budget and the maintenance budget need re-examining. Another factor to owning a larger than necessary jet is the hangar that will house it. The bigger the jet, the bigger the hangar and the bigger the monthly rental bill will be. For some operators that change may involve nothing more than signing the new lease and moving in. For others, the need for a bigger hangar (or that longer home-field runway) may necessitate a move to a different airfield entirely.

The Issue of Crew...

These days a large percentage of Light jets popular with many companies can be legally operated under instrument flight plans (IFR) with a

“Matching machine to mission goals can help a company get the most out of its investment on the minimal amount of money.” single pilot on the flight deck. Many companies with single-pilot-IFR jets use two-person crew as a matter of company policy, not as a response to Federal Air Regulations. But moving up to a Medium- or Large jet obliges the operator to hire a First Office in the cockpit with the Captain. And under today's congressionally-mandated experience rules, the two pilots must each have a minimum 1,500 hours of pilot-in-command time, in addition to the other ratings. Having not touched on insurance and training costs, the bottom line to all the above is that a jet larger than what’s needed to meet the company's mission need will always cost more, regardless of the original purchase price. And if the company lets its business jet fly under Part 135 charter rules, to help offset the costs of owning the airplane, there will be new costs for qualifying the larger private jet and additional crew – which may include a needed cabin attendant as part of the flying crew.

buying and selling business aircraft work so hard to define the missions a prospective owner needs fulfilled and will only then begin to match the aircraft to the missions. Matching machine to mission goals can help a company get the most out of its investment on the minimal amount of money. In today’s used business jet markets, brokers and dealers advise buyers to be patient. Either buy the best jet or turboprop for the mission, or don’t buy anything.

Best Solution is the Right Solution

Conversely, stepping down in size may sound like an option for getting a newer airplane in a tight market, but there are as many complications to that approach as trying to step up beyond what's needed.

What to Know When Prepping Your Jet to Sell With many of the premium aircraft on the used market currently selling for top-dollar it may seem tempting to load an aircraft with all the ‘bells and whistles’ before selling it. But is that really the only way to make a sale today? Jet Tolbert explores… ollowing are a few of the most important things you will need to address if you wish to sell your aircraft in a timely manner (and for the best price). These can be considered the ‘top-five’ list for aircraft sellers seeking to maximize their return in today’s used aircraft market...

F

1. Avionics

Everyone is talking about ADS-B and the associated cost. It would be very difficult not to know by now that ADS-B is an avionics upgrade that the FAA has mandated and is required to be installed and operational in every aircraft by January 1, 2020. The FAA has stated that aircraft that are not equipped by this date will be grounded, without exception. As we get closer to this date there are concerns about the availability of equipment and shop-space to get the upgrade accomplished on time, because the amount of time until the mandate comes into 60

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

effect is dwindling and the number of aircraft that still need to be upgraded is reportedly greater than the available capacity. If you are considering selling your aircraft, and if there is a straightforward solution to install ADS-B that is available the advice is very straightforward: Just get it done. If there is significant lead-time then it might be worth scheduling the upgrade with a shop that has multiple locations to complete the install. That way if the aircraft is under contract prior to the installation, the buyer could still use the kit at a facility convenient to them. If you choose this course of action, know the cost of the upgrade and expect to account for it in the sale price you accept.

2. Paint and Interior

A clean aircraft with a modern interior in good condition will carry a good value even if the paint and interior have some age to them. Most buyers will

OWNERSHIP T BUYING & SELLING

“Because you can’t read the mind of a future buyer it’s usually best to invest as little as possible to have the aircraft show well” value a brand-new paint and interior, but it’s unlikely that you would see a difference in the sale price equal to the investment of a new paint and interior refurbishment. With that said, if the cosmetics of your aircraft are very outdated or unserviceable then the investment into a complete refurbishment could be justified. Because you can’t read the mind of a future buyer (their tastes a nd preferences may very well be different to yours) it’s usually best to invest as little as possible to have the aircraft show well. Minimal investment often means a touch up of all woodwork, addressing the entryway of the aircraft, carpet runners and seats closest to the entry door. Remember the buyer will get their first impression of the interior by looking at this area and so a small investment here can go a long way in creating a good impression.

3. Market Awareness

A well-established broker with deep connections across the markets will be well placed to advise on recent sales activity and aircraft on the market of the same make and model as your aircraft. They’ll also be able to offer perspective on other similar models’ activity on the market that could have an impact your aircraft’s value.

4. Marketing Plan

When planning to sell your aircraft, there is much to coordinate. Bringing the right presentation to the market will ensure that the right channels are open to connect with principal buyers. Again, take the time to work with an experienced representative who will gather the 62

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

right information about your aircraft. It’s best to be able to advertise the aircraft in the best light, and make a more det ailed and very accurate representation of the aircraft without hiding anything.

5. Be Clear What you Have ‘For Sale’

Know what you have and be transparent in the marketplace. • • • • •

Engine program 100% with no deferment? How much of a deferment? Damage history? Missing records? International-ownership history?

This information will come out eventually and if that’s after the fact, or in a buyer’s inspection (af ter the buyer has invested in a contract review and inspection) they will not be happy. Worse, the aircraft will gain a stigma on the market as one that has fallen out of contract based on its quality. You will find that buyers are more appreciative of a transparent presentation. Ultimately, the smoothest aircraft sales are handled professionally by the sellers who are well prepared with realistic expectat ions. T Jet Tolbert is President of American Aircraft Sales.

PT6A: What’s it Worth in Today’s Market Continuing from his discussion of engine values last month, Jeremy Cox considers the world’s most-popular turboprop powerplant, the PT6A... urboprop engines trace their roots back to the Hungarian Jendrassik CS-1 which first ran in 1938 but never flew on an aircraft. It would be another seven years before the world’s first turboprop-powered aircraft – a Gloster Meteor F-1 – flew with a Rolls-Royce RB-50 Trent attached in September 1945. The Vickers Viscount (1948) became the world’s first production turboprop aircraft, powered by the RR RB-53 Dart. Meanwhile, the world’s oldest ‘still flying’ turboprop aircraft is a 1953 Fairey Gannet powered by an Armstrong Siddeley Double Mamba ASMD 1 engine (two engines bolted to the same gearbox) driving two separate props concentrically mounted on the same thrust line. It was in 1956 that the Canadian Pratt &

Whitney Aircraft Company (later renamed Pratt & Whitney Canada (PWC)) proactively initiated the design and build of a new engine which would eventually become the world’s best-selling aircraft turboprop powerplant. The design mandate for the PT6A was to create a compact, lightweight, modular engine that could produce 500shp, and be serviced as much as possible ‘on-wing’ without removal. The PWC team collaborated on a double-shaft, reverse flow, free-turbine design which produced more power than a fixed shaft engine, was quieter and virtually eliminated foreign object damage (FOD). The initial target market for the PT6 engine was the piston-powered DHC-2 de Havilland Beaver.

“Specifically, in Business Aviation over 20,000 PT6A series engines have been installed in 54 different makes/models of aircraft...”

The power-to-weight ratio of a turbine engine versus a piston engine was significant (the PT6 (325lbs) was less than half the dry weight of the current Wasp radial (653lbs), while producing 50hp more). The first PT6 to take to the skies (1961) was mounted on an experimental Assault Support Helicopter. Later that same year, a Beech 18 was chosen as the first fixed-wing testbed aircraft. The nose section of its fuselage was modified to accommodate the new engine and Hamilton Standard Propeller and the rest, as they say, is history…

Today’s PT6A Series Engine

The modern PT6A Series Engine, starting from the output shaft (propeller mount) and working backwards to the rear of the engine, has the following modules and features: •

Drive Section Module: Epicyclic speed reduction gearbox enables a compact

Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

installation and output speed optimized for optimal power and low propeller noise; Power Section Module: Reverse-flow combustor optimized to provide low emissions, high stability and easy starting; single-stage compressor turbine which in many models has cooled vanes to maintain high durability; independent “free” power turbine with shrouded blades (forward-facing output for fast hot section refurbishment); Compressor Section Module: Multi-stage axial and single-stage centrifugal compressor that features reverse flow, radial inlet with screen for FOD protection; Accessory Section Module

Today, Pratt & Whitney Canada classifies the PT6A in three groups, as follows: • • •

Small engines: 500-999shp Medium engines: 1,000-1,400shp Large engines: 1,401-1,900shp

While we exclude specifics on military, helicopter or agricultural applications of the PT6A Series engine (our focus is exclusively fixed-wing Business Aviation applications), Business Aviation applications closely equal the other sectors mentioned approximately 50/50. Specifically, in Business Aviation over 20,000 PT6A series engines have been installed in 54 different makes/models of aircraft with the Beech King Air series the most prolific platform (10,774+ engines and counting), followed by the Cessna Caravan series (2,573+). The out-of-production Piper Cheyenne comes in third with 1,954 engines.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

Malibu Mirage (PA46-350P). Here, an additional 250shp is provided at a cost of around $630k. Included in the conversions are the following: • Factory new PT6A-35 or -21 engine (DLX or DL); • Factory new propellers: - Option 1, Hartzell four-blade metal Scimitar; - Option 2, MT four-blade composite; - Option 3, MT five-blade composite; • Complete installation, STC documentation and AFM supplement; • PWC warranty (five-years or 2,500 hours). So why take an existing Piper pressurized pistonsingle and convert it into a turbine, when the PA46-500TP Meridian, M 500 and M600 were/are available from the OEM with the PT6A-42A factory installed? The answer is found under three separate headings: • The initial purchase price. As an example, a 2015 model’s Malibu Mirage factory-new price was $1.1m. Add the $630k JetPROP DLX price, and the total outlay would be $1.73m. The price of a 2015-model Meridian was $2.22m factory new. That’s a difference of almost $490k. • The JetP ROP DLX offers better performance (as much as a 500fpm better climb rate; lower fuel burn; and allowance for extra baggage). • Higher Residual Value. A 2007 JetPROP DLX has retained 68.2% of its value versus a 2007 model Piper Meridian which has retained 52.7% of its value.

In Summary

With over 20,000 PT6A powerplants produced for Business Aviation to date, there are no signs of this popular model diminishing any time soon. Not only does it continue to be used on some of today’s popular production turboprops, but as demonstrated, it provides significant power through conversion programs, including Blackhawk and JetPROP – and for very good reason.

Business Aircraft Values: The Large Cabin Choice There are occasions when the operator’s mission dictates an aircraft of larger capacity. This month our value study focuses on our definition of Large Cabin and Ultra-Long-Range business jets.

T

he average Large Cabin and Ultra-Long-Range jets share more in common than they differ, with similar cabin sizes and comparable cruise speeds ranging roughly between 450-500kts. For the purpose of this month’s focus, we’ll categorise Large Cabin and Ultra-Long-Range jets under the generic category of ‘Large Cabin jets’, on the basis of their shared characteristics, and MTOWs that generally range between 38,000-100,000 pounds. Large Cabin jets have much in their favor. Seats-full range capabilities typically go up to, and into the 6,000nm range, making these effective non-stop continent and ocean-crossing machines. The fewer the stops, the shorter the overall trip time! One disadvantage the Large Cabin jets have over their Small and Medium jet kin is their need for runways longer than 6,000ft, which restricts the number of airports they can use by comparison. Nevertheless, for the trans-oceanic traveller, the advantages offered by these airplanes far outweigh the negatives. Where the Large Cabin airplanes really excel (as the name would suggest) is in their cabin capacities. A cabin will typically stretch from 30-40 feet or more, enabling operators to enjoy a wider array of finishing options and office capabilities than jets in the smaller segments can provide. Cabin heights in excess of six feet guarantees stand-up cabin comfort, while seating capacity of 8-18 is typical. 70

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

Naturally, the size and range capabilities of Large Cabin jets don’t come cheaply, and you’ll need a larger fuel budget, more hangar space and a larger maintenance budget. Yet for the company with the need, the Large Cabin jet will rarely prove too small, and only occasionally be too large for an airport you’d prefer to access. In these situations, supplemental charter is the answer.

Large Cabin Jet Price Guide

The following Large Cabin jets’ Average Retail Price Guide represents current values published in the Aircraft Bluebook– Price Digest. The study spans model years from 1999 through Summer 2018. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Falcon 2000LX values reported in the Summer 2018 edition of the Bluebook show $19m for a 2013 model, $17.5m 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 41 aircraft models in the following Large Cabin 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 76 

W E R E G R E AT E R T H A N A N Y S T O R M . For America’s aviation pioneers, the skies were a dangerous place. But Alfred Anderson sought to change all that. He became one of our country’s first African American pilots and flight instructors––training the famed Tuskegee Airman. Anderson took flying seriously. A trait we share at NBAA. We’ve been promoting flight safety and security for thousands of our members for decades. Making the skies a safer place to be. Because business aviation enables greater opportunities. And at NBAA, we enable business aviation.

T

he AvBuyer Magazine Guide to Aircraft Performance and Technical Specification Data is updated by Conklin & de Decker on a regular basis. The Guide is much more comprehensive and informative, providing more aircraft types and models and including variable cost numbers for all models. This month’s category of aircraft - Large Cabin Jets – appears opposite, to be followed by Medium 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. VARIABLE COST PER HOUR Includes fuel, maintenance reserves for routine maintenance, engine/ propeller/APU reserves, and miscellaneous expenses. 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. Cabin Door Height and Width are the measurements of the main passenger cabin entry door. BAGGAGE Internal baggage volume is the baggage volume that is accessible in flight by the passenger. This amount may vary with the interior layout. External baggage volume is the baggage volume not accessible in flight (nacelle lockers, etc.). CREW SEATS/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.). Weights: • Maximum Take-Off Weight and Maximum Landing Weight are specified during aircraft certification. • Basic Operating Weight is the empty weight, typically equipped, plus unusable fuel and liquids, flight crew @ 200 pounds each and their supplies. • Useable fuel is the useable fuel in gallons x 6.7 pounds per gallon (Jet fuel) or 6 pounds per gallon (AVGAS). • Payload with Full Fuel is the useful load minus the useable fuel. The useful load is based on the maximum ramp weight minus the basic operating weight. • Maximum Payload is the maximum zero fuel weight minus the basic operating weight. Specifications Performance Range: • Range (4 Pax) - The maximum IFR range of the aircraft with four 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. • 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. • VFR Range - Seats Full is the maximum www.AVBUYER.com

VFR range of the aircraft with all passenger seats occupied. This is used for all helicopters and piston fixed-wing aircraft. VFR Ferry Range - is the maximum VFR range of the aircraft with the maximum fuel on board and no passenger seats occupied. This is used for all helicopters and piston fixed-wing aircraft.

Balanced Field Length BFL is the distance obtained by determining the decision speed (V1) at which the take-off distance and the accelerate-stop distance are equal (fixed-wing multi-engine aircraft only). This is based on four passengers and maximum fuel on board (turbine aircraft). For single-engine and all piston fixed-wing aircraft, this distance represents the take-off field length at Maximum Take-off Weight (MTOW). Landing Distance (Factored) For fixed-wing turbine aircraft, landing distance is computed using FAR 121 criteria. This takes the landing distance from 50/35 feet (depends on certification criteria) and multiplies that by a factor of 1.667. No credit is given for thrust reversers. Configuration is with four passengers and NBAA IFR Fuel Reserve on board. For fixed-wing piston aircraft, this figure is the landing distance over a 50 foot obstacle. Rate of Climb (Ft/Min) The rate of climb, given in feet per minute, is for all engines operating, at MTOW, ISA conditions. One Engine Out rate of climb is for one engine inoperative rate of climb at MTOW, ISA. 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. Normal cruise speed is the recommended cruise speed established by the manufacturer. This speed may also be the same as Maximum Cruise Speed. Long Range Cruise is the manufacturer’s recommended cruise speed for maximum range. Engines The number of engines, manufacturer and model are shown. Aircraft Index see Page 145

Aircraft Comparative Analysis Airbus H125 vs Bell 206L-4

In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on a pair of popular single-turbine light helicopters for the purpose of valuing the Airbus H125. ver the following paragraphs, we’ll analyse the performance of the Airbus H125 and Bell’s 206L-4 helicopter to see how they compare within the market. We’ll consider productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size), and give consideration to market values. The Airbus H125 traces its roots to the Eurocopter AS350B-3 which was in production from 1998 until 2012. Eurocopter introduced the Eur ocopter AS-350B-3e model from 2013, then in 2016 Airbus renamed the AS350B-3e the Airbus H125. The Airbus H125 continues to be produced at Airbus Helicopters' plant at Golden Triangle Airport in Lowndes County near Columbus, Mississippi, and the aircraft features a new dual-channel FADEC-equipped Turbomeca Arriel 2D powerplant and a dual LCD-screen Vehicle and Engine Multi-Function Display (VEMD). As of this analysis, 704 Airbus H125 helicopters are operational worldwide, while a further 27 were in production. An additional 27 aircraft had been retired, giving a total of 758 Airbus H125s built. The fleet percentage ‘For Sale’ at the time of writing was 2.4%, and the average time on the market before a sale stood at 324 days, according to JETNET. By continent, North America was home to the largest fleet p ercentage (33%) of Airbus H125s, followed by Europe (29%) and Asia (23%) to give a combined total of 85% of the worldwide fleet. Table A (right) offers a more

The data contained in Table B (left) is sourced from Conklin & de Decker. As we have mentioned previously, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Airbus H125 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ (987lbs) is more than that offered by the Bell 206L-4 (737lbs).

Cabin and Sections

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Airbus H125 cabin volume measures 61 cubic feet. The Bell 206L-4 has more cabin volume (73 cubic feet). Chart A, courtesy of UPCAST JETBOOK, offers a cabin cross-section comparison, showing the Airbus H125 has more width (5.41 ft. vs 3.9 ft.) and slightly more height (4.26 ft. vs 4.2 ft.) than the Bell 206L-4 cabin. Also, the cabin length of the Airbus H125 is longer (6.56 ft. vs 5 ft.). So where does the Bell model get its cabin volume advantage from? Conklin & de Decker measures its cabin volumes based on the full shape, and in this case the more curved windshield of the Airbus model accounts for the difference. Meanwhile, the Airbus H125 has 35 cubic feet of external and no internal baggage space, while the Bell 206L-4 has 20 cubic feet of external baggage space and 2 cubic feet of internal baggage space. The typical seating configuration for Airbus H125 offers one less passenger seat at four seats with one crew member, while the Bell 206L-4 offers five passenger seats with one crew member.

Range Comparison

As depicted by Chart B (opposite) using Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Mississippi as the origin point, the Airbus H125 helicopter with Seats Full range of 300nm is greater than that of the Bell 206L4 (253nm), according Conklin & de Decker data.

Helicopters 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 are allowed to accelerate the depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first few years of the applicable recovery period (see Table D, overleaf). In certain cases, helicopters 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 Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

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 a helicopter may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, helicopters used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year recovery period or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Helicopters 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 helicopter, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table E (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2018-year model Airbus H125 helicopter in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over fiveand seven-year periods, assuming a new 2018 retail price of $3.05m, per the Vref Price guide.

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that helicopter operators value. However, there are other qualities that might factor in a buying decision too. The Airbus H125 continues to be popular today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Airbus H125 will continue to do well on the new/used helicopter market for the foreseeable future. Of course, if a US-operated Airbus H125 helicopter is not outfitted with ADS-B Out it cannot be placed in operation after December 31, 2019, as mandated by the FAA. T

Others may choose different parameters, but serious helicopter buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. The Airbus H125 shows a higher new retail price than the Bell 206L-4, but greater productivity. Specifically, the Airbus H125 has greater ‘Payload with Full Fuel’ capability, greater range and higher cruise speed. Meanwhile, the Bell 206L-4 offers a larger cabin volume, lower variable operating cost and an extra passenger seat. The Airbus H125 averages 11 units sold per month and is still a popular model on the helicopter sales market today. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Why Install Embedded Radio Tuning in the Cockpit? The likelihood is that there’s an upgrade available for your business jet, but for those with older

panels, what are the advantages of upgrading to

embedded radio tuning? Dave Higdon discusses… oday's glass cockpit replicates the information from the old-school instrument panels in graphical displays (often a single Primary Flight Display (PFD)). The digital renderings of navigation indicators and navigation graphics display their information on both PFDs and Multifunction Display (MFD). Early incarnations of today's modern flight decks, however, often stopped short of integrating architecture into the graphical displays to monitor and control the sundry radios and other systems indigenous to almost every cockpit. So separate boxes housing VHF communication and navigation radios were commonplace until the advent of the wholly-integrated flight deck systems dominating new-aircraft deliveries today. Integrated flight decks largely eliminate the separate panel-mounted communications and navigation boxes, each with its own status displays and controls. In their place the integrated flight deck provides embedded controls available through those dominant display screens. The result is less ‘head-down’ time, increased ‘eyes-out-the-windows’ diligence and (thanks to the greater integration of these systems) smarter,

T

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

easier and more-convenient control over those radios – all with the bonus of fewer ways to make an input mistake. Simply put, embedded tuning is another control indigenous to the integrated avionics stack, and the numerous benefits have turned more than a few aviators into true fans of the integration that embeds controls on the same screen the pilots spend most of their time monitoring.

Variety in Integration

Embedded tuning is available in two forms. In one form the radio (be it a VHF Comm or Nav radio, or GPS navigator) may be a remotely mounted box wired into the glass displays to give the flight crew direct control of the box through the controls displayed on a glass-cockpit panel. In the other (more dominant) form the radios don't exist as stand-alone boxes, but as functions built into the integrated flight deck system, typically as part of one or more Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). Both forms are controlled by a popup box on the PFD display, or through a separate input device, and each has its fans with their own reason for preferring that form. On the one hand, with stand-alone radios

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 145


AVIONICS 1.qxp_Finance 21/08/2018 10:24 Page 2

remotely-controlled, a malfunction generally won't impact the main glass cockpit system, and the radio is easily replaced with little impact on the rest of the avionics. As devices built into the integrated flight-deck package, though the LRUs are easily replaceable, a malfunction of a VHF comm or nav radio may (albeit rarely) impact the functionality of other parts of the avionics.

Maximizing Eyes-Out and Head-Up Time

As mentioned already, the primary benefit of integrated radio tuning grows out of the technology’s ability to reduce head-down time while maximizing head-up time to look outside while continuing to monitor the aircraft's situational awareness tools. Touch a soft key on the PFD bezel or, if a touchcontrolled device the display screen, and up pops a keypad-like image on which the pilot enters a frequency – or an airport designation, navigation waypoint or transponder squawk. Another button or two loads the information directly into the appropriate piece of avionics (be it a comm frequency, a navigation beacon, an airport code or transponder squawk). When, like today, a PFD can simultaneously Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

display terrain, traffic, airspeed, altitude, attitude, heading, course and vertical speed, you might worry that the displaying screen is getting a little crowded. These PFDs also may display traffic as part of a collision-avoidance system and, in a few cases, let the pilot overlay weather graphics on the display. But with remote, embedded-tuning capabilities, the free space in the panel increasingly gets filled with larger displays, making discerning the information easier at every step. And with ever more systems available for retrofit, the era of the analog panel appears headed toward extinction.

Panel-Space Savers

The control software embedded into the integrated flight decks often totally eliminate separate control heads – with their knobs and switches – in favor of so-called ‘soft controls’ which appear and disappear on a PFD or MFD display with the touch of a button. The integrated flight decks employing embedded radio tuning generally include a display box on the PFD or MFD displaying the frequencies in use, even when the control box isn't displayed. With today's increasing proliferation of

touch-sensitive displays the pilot of one of these modern marvels has fewer reasons to have their head down in the cockpit to find and tune in a comm or nav frequency. Today's most advanced cockpits, with their head-up displays or guidance systems, often display comm and nav frequencies on the HUD, further reducing head-down time.

Operational Benefits

With today's advanced integrated flight decks, the embedded radio-tuning function is often designed to work directly with other radios, increasing their operational benefits. With the most-advanced systems a frequency entered on an embedded-tuning screen can often be entered directly into a flight plan with the correct combination of button pushes. Along the same lines information in navigation databases can often be entered directly into a Flight Management System (FMS) to speed along flight planning and pre-departure preparations. Or a radio frequency in a GPS database can be internally transferred directly into a VHF Comm or Nav radio, saving the pilot extra steps and maximizing safety and efficiency. Touch a button to enter frequency choices for the VHF navigation receiver and communications transceiver and a separate key brings up a window in which to enter navigation information for the WAAS GPS increasingly found in today's aircraft. Alternatively, call up a published instrument approach or airport diagram and all the relevant radio frequencies come up on the display, from which a button or two loads that frequency into the appropriate avionics. Indeed, that transfer by button push eliminates the prospect of incorrectly entered numbers, waypoints or other items subject to direct tuning. 94

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

Remotely Tuned

Not all aircraft sport integrated flight decks and not all integrated flight decks support remote tuning of older radios. To that end companies such as Rockwell Collins (among others) offers stand-alone remote radio tuning for their legacy systems and newer flight decks. As an example, Rockwell Collins' RTU-42XX Radio Tuning Unit product family provides integrated control of all Rockwell Collins ProLine II and 400 Series CNS sensors and the HF-9000. The RTU-42XX incorporates a complete set of radio management functions into a single unit and gives you a convenient means of selecting frequencies, codes, channels, operating modes and volume. The RTU-42XX may also be integrated with the Flight Management System, allowing frequency to always be displayed on the RTU regardless of the tuning source. The key to these performing as desired is their integration with the appropriate avionics and placement so that the pilot spends minimal time to enter the desired information. With systems available for virtually any aircraft, it's an option increasingly embraced by pilots today – because the option almost always saves weight, reduces power load and increases performance. But the most welcome aspect of remote-radio tuning is its ability to reduce, maybe even eliminate, the likelihood of entering an incorrect code or frequency. And anything that helps reduce the possibility of an entry error can't help but advance the cause of safer flying – one of the catalysts to the glass cockpit revolution. T

Cockpit Upgrade? What you Really Need to Plan How can you ensure a successful avionics panel upgrade? Brian

selection of the equipment, to how

s consumers, we’re inundated with advertisements that showcase all the features and enhancements a product possesses. Regardless of what those advertisements tell us, though, it’s vital that we take the time to distinguish what we need from what we want. Let me explain: My friend and I share a passion of running. He recently bought a running watch with all the latest technology that cost quite a bit

of money and offered countless features, all of which he will use and gladly pay for. Having got caught up in his excitement I bought the same watch. Since I only care about how far and how fast I run, I use only a fraction of those features. I could have easily bought a less expensive watch to match the options I needed. If settling on the best priced watch that matches the features I need proves a challenge, imagine how difficult it must be to research the right cockpit avionics upgrade! Let’s dissect the process, hopefully making life a little simpler for you.

Where do you Start?

The first thing you’ll need to do is find out which display systems have been certified for your aircraft. These sophisticated upgrades require either a Type Certificate (TC) or Supplement Type Certificate (STC) by the relevant regulatory authorities. You can consult with an OEM or MRO of choice to see which options are available. Keep in mind that cockpit display OEMs are always looking for a ‘launch’ customer with which to perform an initial upgrade and certification. This path provides both advantages and disadvantages for the customer.

Brian Wilson is the Director, Key Accounts at Gogo Business Aviation, an industry-leading provider of in-flight connectivity and entertainment solutions. Prior to Gogo, he sat on numerous Dealer Advisory Boards along with being a member of the AEA Board of Directors.

“I speak from experience when I tell you that proposals will help you distinguish between the wants and the needs.” The advantage is that you will always benefit from reduced pricing, and in most cases the upgrade can even result in a substantial costsaving. The disadvantages are the increased downtime due to the certification process and the patience needed to work through the initial interface challenges. If you are on the conservative side, then going with a certified and proven system is the path to take. Those seeking the very latest system may benefit from seek out the manufacturer and enquiring if they’re interested in certifying their system on your aircraft type.

Determine Pricing and Downtime

Hopefully your research will have resulted in a couple of viable upgrade options for your aircraft. If so, it’s time to get some pricing and downtime estimates. Avionics manufacturers and installation facilities understand that no one wants their aircraft out of action for an extended amount of time, so some upgrades employ prefabricated harnesses that route to a junction box, thereby using the existing wiring on the aircraft. The other end of the harness connects to the framework that hosts the new Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

display. Since the new display was designed to directly replace the current one, downtime is greatly reduced. By contrast, some display upgrades require a whole new instrument panel and lots of new wiring. Some even require updating of the autopilot, while others incorporate a common radio tuning unit which might require signal convertors to interface with the existing equipment. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you receive proposals from three accredited and experienced shops. Once you have these, you can narrow the choice down to two shops and have them walk you through the upgrade while referencing real time experiences. And while you’re speaking with them, don’t forget to ask for referrals.

Separating Want From Need?

I speak from experience when I tell you that proposals will help you distinguish between the wants and the needs. That is because complex proposals will come with both a ‘basic’ package price and a list of additional options, which are called options for a reason…

Options enhance the display architecture but are not required to achieve the designed feature set. This pick and choose selection process will help you distinguish some of your desired wants with a monetary value; therefore, creating a value proposition that can be carefully evaluated before a final decision is made. Remember, colorful brochures usually cover all the capabilities of the system, but not all the displayed features are covered in the basic package pricing. Some examples of options might include: •

• • • • •

Application or File Server Unit that allows electronic charts and strategic weather overlays. (Most pilots would prefer a system that automatically loads the appropriate charts after the destination airport is entered in the FMS) Paperless Flight Deck Wireless Data Loading Video Input Enablement (remote camera input) Second GNSS or GPS Receiver (backup comes in handy in remote parts of the world) High Frequency (HF) Radio

The ‘needs’ are very distinguishable as regulatory compliance, adolescence and higher maintenance costs are compelling reasons to perform the upgrade. The clarity and sharpness of the new smart displays can be akin to removing an old household cathode-ray-tube (CRT) TV and replacing it with a new smart LCD TV. The weight saving alone provides significant extra payload 98

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

and offers additional fuel planning flexibility. Most displays today are touchscreen, providing crew-configurable presentations of graphical data in a multi-pane mode. Having Synthetic Vision and WAAS LPV capabilities will also allow you to land at your airport of choice under varying weather conditions. All this combined enhances safety and makes the aircraft more productive. The crew workload is reduced, and crew coordination is increased.

How do I Plan the Upgrade?

Typically, an upgrade should be completed in conjunction with a maintenance event. In some cases, the installation facility can perform an upgrade during the allotted downtime scheduled for an inspection, nevertheless, a few extra days should be factored for completion of the ground and flight testing of the new system. Remember, if you choose to be a “first of type” aircraft the downtime will be increased by a few weeks. Regardless, ample time should be allowed for all parties to prepare for the installation. This is not the event where everyone should feel pressured for time. Everyone must participate as a team to achieve a positive experience. While aircraft owners need to understand the complexity of the upgrade and buy into the required downtime, this would also be a great time to seek out charter aircraft to help fill the void while the company aircraft is grounded. The aircraft’s crew, meanwhile, should use the time to see what training tools are provided by the equipment manufacturer. Most provide eLearning that allows access to training via a

computer, tablet or smartphone. At the installation facility, the engineering team should be requesting all the aircraft documentation within a few days of receiving the signed proposal. Equipment integration should have been reviewed during the proposal process, however, experience confirms that detailed analysis tends only to be completed after the sale. The crew should be very active in this process ensuring all the latest documentation is provided in a timely fashion, and communication and patience should become standard practice throughout. There are many parts to an avionics upgrade, and each will have its own lead time. It only takes for one long lead time to delay a project. The lead time dictated on the proposal should be taken seriously, yet in my forty years in the aviation industry, this is the most overlooked component. Improper attention to the lead times creates the first element of pressure and finger-pointing between the stake-holders.

What About the Delivery?

The delivery process for your aircraft should be addressed when you arrive at the shop. Seasoned maintenance personnel will tell you they “build in” an additional day or two between the actual delivery date and what they have told the owner. Having been involved in over a thousand deliveries of aircraft I’ve seen normal people become like parents trying to get that last hottest Christmas present for their children! Here is how to avoid that from occurring: 1. Discuss the delivery process when you arrive. The project coordinator should have a timeline 100

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

detailing the milestones of the installation. Ample time should be allocated for the configuration and testing of the system by the installation team. 2. The crew then needs time to transition from what they learned through their online training to actual hands-on experience with the system in the aircraft. They should be supported by both the lead technician and a Field Service Engineer (FSE) from the manufacturer. 3. The FSE is worth his weight in gold during this critical phase and is usually a seasoned veteran who is very technical. The FSE will also have the support of his engineering team standing by to assist if needed. Don’t think you can call these folks two days before the delivery date and think they’re available – plan well in advance! 4. Once a thorough ground test has been performed and everything looks to be in order it’s time for a test flight. In fact, two flights should be performed to ensure the system was adequately tested and any issues are resolved before you depart the shop. Unfortunately, I have witnessed many times where the aircraft is running late, and the delivery time gets squeezed, resulting with an aircraft departing with numerous issues that must be resolved after more downtime. The only outcome is intensified anxiety between the owner, the crew and the maintenance team. Avoid all this drama with proper planning and continued communication so your avionics upgrade produces all the positive outcomes you hoped it would. T

How Does BendixKing See Today’s Avionics Advances? From ADS-B, to state-of-the-art glass

cockpits, to expanding cabin

connectivity options, Stéphane

Fymat, Vice President, Marketing

& Product Management, BendixKing

spoke with AvBuyer to discuss all

things hot in avionics… ockpit and cabin avionics are a ripe topic at this time with technological advancements and regulatory mandates driving many of the advances in General and Business Aviation aircraft today. Here’s what Stéphane Fymat of BendixKing had to say on the subject…

C

AvBuyer: Regarding ADS-B, have the avionics OEMs such as BendixKing released all the solutions they’re going to onto the market, or are new solutions for new models still in the pipeline? Fymat: Speaking for BendixKing, we are continuing to release new solutions for new models to the market. Just recently, we obtained the STC for our CNI 5000 to be installed in the Citation Bravo. We also continue to seek new STCs for our MST 70B. And before 2020, we will release a successor to the KT 74 that will include an optional integrated position source and ADS-B In. All our ADS-B transponders are slide-in replacements for their predecessors that reuse the mounting trays, wiring harnesses and antennas. This dramatically reduces the installation cost and aircraft downtime. In some cases, it can even be 102

performed as a field upgrade at the owner’s FBO, avoiding the need to ferry the aircraft to another airport. I’d like to remind aircraft owners that both FAA and EASA leadership has made it clear that they are not budging from their respective dates in 2020. In the US, if you want to fly in Class C airspace, within 30 nautical miles of Class B airspace, above 10,000 feet MSL, or above 3,000 feet MSL along the US coastline in the Gulf of Mexico, you will need ADS-B. We hear from many of our dealers that they have such a high backlog of ADS-B installation work that owners are waiting for months to get their aircraft upgraded. We strongly recommend owners and operators begin planning their upgrades now, and have their aircraft scheduled for the upgrade no later than July 2019. That will ensure that their aircraft is upgraded before the deadline and avoid last minute “surge pricing” that could cost operators thousands. AvBuyer: We heard that many operators who are acting on ADS-B are tending not to simply opt for an ADS-B Out solution but are choosing full panel

AVIONICS 3.qxp_Finance 21/08/2018 10:15 Page 2

retrofits. Is that what you’re seeing in today’s market? Fymat: Yes, indeed, we are seeing this too. The ADS-B mandate is the catalyst for operators to also address issues with the obsolescence of other avionics equipment in their aircraft. These operators figure that if they’re going to open-up their instrument panel, they might as well do it once instead of twice, installing ADS-B and upgrading their other avionics at the same time. This is exactly what one European operator I know of is doing. He’s upgrading his entire fleet of 12 aircraft from a mixture of analog gauges and EFIS systems using old CRT display technology to BendixKing’s AeroVue. So, in addition to ADS-B compliance this operator will get synthetic vision, airport moving maps, interactive graphical flight planning, a flight management system with flight director and coupled vertical navigation, a new all-digital threeaxis autopilot, and heads-up display symbology right on the primary flight display. All of this will reduce pilot workload, increase safety and reduce maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

AvBuyer: What stands out to you about the way today’s glass cockpit panels have evolved? Where do you see them heading into the future? Fymat: Today’s glass cockpit panels have been an integrating force in avionics, as avionics designers continue to add capabilities into one screen, while removing the panoply of separate physical components from the panel. However, as that has occurred, glass panels have become more and more complicated, which can lead to pilots being overloaded with data – not all of it actionable information, and not necessarily increasing safety. If you think about it, today’s student pilot sees the same panel as a high-time instrument-rated pilot. The student pilot doesn’t need all of this information. It actually hinders learning basic airmanship such as “looking out the window”. I am of course fully in favor of glass cockpits, but I think they will evolve in the future to have more intuitive interfaces that hide unnecessary complexity and are more natural for the pilot to interact with them. Speaking for BendixKing, you can begin to see that with our new xVue Touch primary flight display,

an attractive touchscreen for experimental aircraft. We eschewed the multiple levels of menus and sub-menus of other avionics solutions on the market and made it so that any critical function is accessible within two touches, and all functions within four touches. We continue to pursue this design philosophy as we develop our future glass cockpit systems. I often make the comparison to today’s automobiles, that are jam-packed with the most advanced technologies available, and yet their dashboards are as simple as ever. I believe that aviation is also heading that way. Another area of evolution that I see is in connectivity. Glass cockpits are evolving to be connected systems, participating in an aerial network to send and receive information. Tomorrow’s General Aviation pilots will send and receive automated pilot reports (PIREPs) without ever having to call it in, obtain continuously updated weather information in their electronic flight bag (EFB) on their computer tablet and on their multi-function display anywhere in the world - not just in the US. I can even envision a future where smaller aircraft interact with air traffic control using the equivalent of text messages (data link) rather than radio calls. At BendixKing, we have pioneered in-flight connectivity for turbine and light jet aircraft with AeroWave. We continue to push in that direction and see a day where every aircraft – from a single-engine piston aircraft through to a business jet - will be constantly connected to the internet for missioncritical operations via a combination of ground-based and satellite-based networks.

Fymat: The ultimate goal is to give passengers the same connectivity in the air as they have on the ground – at home, in the office or on their cell phone, at a comparable fixed price. Passengers should be able to stream movies, participate in video conference calls, download large files and do anything else they desire just as they would on the ground. I believe this will become possible with the upcoming proliferation of connectivity solutions, both ground-based as well as satellite-based, further increasing capacity and driving down price. In addition, many of these satellite-based networks are aiming to solve a much bigger problem than aircraft connectivity, they aim to make the internet available everywhere around the world. Once in place, that network will have a scale that is far greater than today’s satellite-based networks, and that will drive down cost. Aircraft, in turn, will be able to benefit from that scale and receive high bandwidth connectivity at reasonable prices. At BendixKing, we are contributing to that movement by further developing our AeroWave product, a satellite modem, to work with multiple connectivity modes and drive down its cost such that almost any owner or operator can afford it. AvBuyer: Can you ever see a solution arriving that will bring the best of Ku- and Ka-band internet to smaller jets? Fymat: Yes, but it will take time. The technical issue is the requirement of directional antennas for Ku and Ka systems are too large for the smaller airframes and the costs are also prohibitively high. We will ultimately need to see a breakthrough in antenna technology to bring Ku and Ka solutions to smaller airframes. T More information from www.bendixking.com

AvBuyer: There have been many developments in connectivity. We’re seeing more solutions arrive that address connectivity for the cabins of smaller jets. What are some of the breakthroughs seen in this arena lately, and what’s the ultimate goal? 104

PBN/LPV: A Pilot’s Perspective Last month, Mario Pierobon highlighted how Performance Based Navigation is a significant enabler of efficiency and safety in Business Aviation. This month he speaks with Captains Georgios Dritsopoulos and Denis Plarinos of GainJet to discuss their opinions…

T

raditionally air navigation has relied on ground-based infrastructure. With the advent of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) ground stations are being progressively decommissioned and PBN is opening-up navigation opportunities without the need for ground infrastructure. But what are the compliance needs of business aircraft operators and what is the potential for LPV approaches to fully replace Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) and ground infrastructure in the future?

106

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

According to Georgios Dritsopoulos, Training Manager and Captain of Challenger 604/605 jets for Athens, Greece-based GainJet, PBN is an important contribution towards flight safety and it is very beneficial to aircraft operators and flight crews generally. “The safety improvement lies in the fact that, thanks to PBN, the route of the approach is more accurate and more precisely specified, especially in the radar environment,” Dritsopoulos explained. “LPV is a very peculiar type of approach, it’s something that still feels very new.

“Upgrading the avionics in a 15-20-year-old jet requires significant expenditure in the region of $500k to $1m. That can be difficult to justify...”

“Mostly, all but the latest generation business jets tend not have LPV capability. In addition, while for ILS approaches we have CAT I with MDH at 200ft, CAT II with MDH at 100ft and CAT III with MDH at 0ft, we will need time to undertake LPV approaches with the same minima as with the ILS. It is going to take time for us to develop a working knowledge and confidence as to lower decision minima. “PBN-related crew training requirements under EASA came out in April 2016 with a deadline of August 2018. All pilots in Europe need to have the applicable PBN specifications in their operator proficiency checks, and of course undergo training and checking accordingly,” Dritsopoulos highlighted. “In the future we are going to have PBN training on the license as we go to any competent national aviation authority to change the license. It is a must that PBN becomes a rating on the license”, he elaborates. Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

Justifying the Upgrade

A peculiar feature of PBN capability is that all related avionics upgrades are quite costly and take time to perform, both for Part 91 and Part 135 operators. Aircraft charter companies and corporate flight departments face cost pressures at this time, so investment into the upgrade may be difficult for some to justify. “The costs associated with upgrading to perform LPV approaches is a real concern,” Dritsopoulos affirms. “There are still so many airplanes which do not have the equipment. Upgrading the avionics in a 15-20-year-old jet requires significant expenditure in the region of $500k to $1m. “That can be difficult to justify in an aircraft that is still perfectly fit to fly (albeit without LPV).” “The GNSS receivers on all our company aircraft are not designed to receive geostationary satellite information, and consequently LPV approaches are not possible to conduct”, explains Captain Denis

“In the future all approaches are going to be LPV because, as they rely on augmented GNSS, there will be no need for ground infrastructure...” Plarinos, Deputy Flight Operations Manager and Captain, Boeing 737 VIP, GainJet. “The main reason is the glide path angle inside the final approach fix is a true geometric angle generated by EGNOS itself, just like the electronic glide path of an ILS or Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS), which is impervious to environmental weather changes – hence, lower published minima apply. “Undoubtedly, when it comes to critical and extremely accurate signal transmission, LPV leads the way in all PBN approaches.” As a matter of fact, most of GainJet’s aircraft are certified to perform APV BARO VNAV for 3D approaches, Plarinos explains. This is where the glide path angle is generated by the FMS receiving information from the aircraft’s barometric altimetry system. Nevertheless, this is subject to errors developing from environmental changes of pressure and temperature, hence, higher minima apply. 108

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – September 2018

A Look to the Future

When a business aircraft operator has no LPV capability and must fly to an airport with an ILS the options are to go for a non-precision GNSS approach, old-fashioned NDB, or VOR approach. “It should be noted there are increasingly fewer NDB approaches nowadays. If the weather conditions allow it you can go for a VFR approach”, Dritsopoulos reflects. “However, I believe that the ILS will become a legacy type of approach. In the future all approaches are going to be LPV because, as they rely on augmented GNSS, there will be no need for ground infrastructure and the related servicing. “Moreover, future aircraft will feature increasingly sophisticated avionics, and LPV will be more convenient for airport operators and eventually for the aircraft operators too.” More information from www.gainjet.com T

Signs it may be Time to Change MRO Shops While a majority of aircraft

operators find long-lasting

happiness with their MRO shop, occasionally things may go

wrong. Dave Higdon reviews

some of the main reasons given for changing to a different maintenance provider…

erhaps you questioned whether you were the problem. Or perhaps it just felt like it was time to make a clean break. Making a break-up decision can feel as difficult in professional relationships as it is in personal ones. Deciding to move on from a long-term maintenance provider is no different, and unlikely to be a decision taken lightly. Though many operators enjoy productive, happy and loyal relationsh ips with their MRO provider, what are some common problems that push operators to make a break-up decision? How do they know when it's time to find a new shop to meet their MRO needs? We spoke with maintenance technicians, maintenance supervisors and business aircraft operators to develop a short-list of five tell-tale signs the time was right for some to move on.

P

1. They Just Don't Listen...or Talk

We've all done it: Someone tells us something and seconds later it's gone. Imagine a scenario where, as the aircraft’s due to return to service the shop supervisor has no recollection of a request or a work order resulting in the airplane needing more downtime while the shop catches up on the work before it returns to service. 110

That time could add up to days or even weeks, and in the interim you now require replacement lift, or at the least to reschedule an important trip. As an isolated event such inattention may be overlooked in an otherwise-reliable working relationship. As a repeat phenomenon, it becomes unacceptable. The expense, inconvenience and embarrassment of being forced to reschedule trips and meetings, lodging and meal arrangements for another date reflects badly on the operator. Telling associates that “the shop let us down” works only once before associates may begin questioning their relationship with you. Maintenance providers, technicians and managers told us they expect clients to call and inform them of any shortcomings, failu res or problems with returning an aircraft to service. “Summarily dropping us doesn't give us an opportunity to reconcile the problem, to learn why it occurred, and provide corrective measures,” one large-shop manager explained. “We want to get it right with the client, even when it costs us. Then if they want to change, so be it. At least by that point we can say we fixed what we caused and send them off with a functional aircraft.” Nevertheless, one operator we spoke with emphasized their expectation that such issues be Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

communicated at every turn and not sprung on them the day the airplane is due to return to service. The bottom line is key to all types of successful relationship: communication. When that begins to break down on either side, there’s a real danger the relationship will too.

2. They Didn’t Update the Maintenance Records Properly

“Airworthiness” covers a lot of territory, most of it consisting of hardware maintained to FAA standards and the rest is paperwork (proof of work performed that keeps the aircraft airworthy). So inaccurate paperwork – or worse, no paperwork – renders an otherwise perfectly airworthy aircraft illegal to fly. The complexity of the aircraft and its systems drive the depth and detail of maintenance records commanded by that aircraft. Airframe logs, powerplant logs – they're virtually universal. But moving into the more-complex Part 23 turbinepowered aircraft and beyond into Part 25 transport-category hardware, the systems and their complexities tend to grow. Keeping the aircraft and all its associated systems functional and physically airworthy can occupy a lot of time for a technician. Assuring the paperwork is done to prove that airworthy status is even more

involved giving rise to numerous companies and software packages designed to help with both the awareness of needed work and the records to prove the work was done. Ultimately, it's not the shop but the operator the FAA holds responsible for an aircraft's airworthiness. So a maintenance shop's failure to cover the basics of the work and the paperwork places the operator in an untenable spot, often resulting in the operator replacing the maintenance provider.

The shop may be simply understaffed, or the shop's supervisor could be a poor time manager, or is trying to keep too many balls in the air at once. It can be difficult to move to a new maintenance provider when you’ve had a long relationship with the shop. But...when it's your job to keep the company aircraft viable and available, the failures of your maintenance contractor quickly reflect on you when the aircraft can't be flown for the boss when you promised without good reason.

3. They Missed a Required-Maintenance or AD Date...

5. When the Airplane is Moving on...

When a maintenance shop takes on a new client one of the first things the new lead maintenance technician will do is to review the maintenance records against a list of ADs for that make and model of aircraft. Ongoing they should take care to continue to monitor for new ADs. An aircraft lacking work required by a maintenance directive or AD is no longer airworthy; it is illegal to fly without special permission and a ferry permit. Unless the aircraft operator flies with the aircraft's maintenance records, they’re at low risk of the failure to comply with maintenance directives or ADs being discovered on a trip. But should a ramp check grow into something more the operator could conceivably be sanctioned on every flight flown since missing the deadline for the work to be completed. The operator's recourse will start with a visit to their attorney and the manager of the maintenance shop.

4. Lack of Dependability

“The airplane will be ready. Maybe next week, maybe later – we can't say.” If that’s the type of language you’re hearing too frequently, then it may be time to change shops. For the operator’s part it’s important to understand that there are always variables beyond the maintenance shop’s control; sometimes parts aren't available when needed, or paperwork gets stuck at the Flight Standards District Office (FSDO). But when there’s no discernably good reason - when it's just poor schedule management - after a while an operator can find themselves longing for reliability. 112

We live in a dynamic world in which change is a very prominent constant. Sometimes companies move and, through no fault of their own, the existing maintenance provider no longer works for the operator. “It's one thing if the airplane moves to an airport 20, 30, even 50 miles from its maintenance provider,” a Mid-Atlantic maintenance shop owner explained. “Most people would prefer to handle the little bit of extra travel over ditching a maintenance shop with people familiar with their airplane and their flying habits; people they know and trust. “Move the airplane far enough to need to ferry it, and maybe there’s a case to mo ve the maintenance home, too.”

Before you Move

Every maintenance supervisor and technician we spoke to counseled that no operator should terminate their existing relationship with a maintenance shop before they’ve found a replacement. “You absolutely need to know where you're going for that next annual inspection, 100-hour check or other routine work before it's time to pass the aircraft on to that new maintenance provider,” explained the line-maintenance supervisor of a large Midwest FBO with a significant number of corporate and ownerflown jet clients. And if viable, it's only fair to give the shop notice, if for no other reason than to give it time to assemble all the maintenance records for your aircraft so those files leave when you do. Plan accordingly. T

What are Your Aircraft Upgrade Priorities? (Part 2) Ken Elliott discusses aircraft upgrade priorities. In the second of his three-part series he considers the upgrade options that are both required and available to operators… s the use of airspace and a corresponding need to automate increases, Civil Aviation Authorities will apply greater pressure so aircraft can utilize all the features of a modern infrastructure. It is also important to engage all stakeholders in the process because the true benefit of airspace improvements can only be realized when everyone can use them. Furthermore, as we have seen with ADS-B Out and WAAS-LPV, the FAA are smart enough to ensure infrastructure is in place before requiring or recommending equipage. This, a result of lessons learned from previous mandates applying to aircraft equipage. Mandates come in two flavors. They are either safety- or airspace-related. Safety requirements typically apply to groups of aircraft, no matter where they operate, while airspace requirements are operations-focused and are applicable irrespective of the aircraft type.

A

Safety-Related Mandates

Under an umbrella of safety alerts, Civil Aviation Authorities have widely adopted the Airworthiness Directive approach to important safety-related requirements. These can be legally enforceable as they apply to correct 114

an unsafe condition of an aircraft, engine, propeller or appliance. If not an emergency, an AD will go through a rulemaking process. Emergency ADs are always stated as such, and there will be an understandable urgency for all affected operators to comply. Other safety-related guidance can be found in the format of an alert, report or a bulletin. One example would be Safety Alerts for Operators (SAFOs). Because aircraft owners sensibly prioritize their operating costs, anything related to safety of the existing aircraft will take priority. By working with a maintenance management program and aircraft service provider, operators scan through their records, manufacturer’s recommendations and civil aviation safety mandates, to identify important requirements, including major inspections, before considering potential upgrades. Furthermore, flight departments should always maintain a contingency of funds for unforeseen repairs and newly issued manufacturer bulletins.

Airspace-Related Mandates

The next priority for consideration after safety is enabling the aircraft to operate in the airspace you need to fly.

Applies to All

Understanding airspace requirements is a tricky affair because it is all about how you elect to operate and the equipage needed to achieve it. It also includes the consideration of plans for the aircraft itself. For example, do you plan on selling the aircraft, ending a lease, having it managed, or relocating it to a different sector of an international business? For airspace applications, the word ‘mandate’ is only meaningful if the requirement applies to your flight operations. Because it serves a broad classification of airspace, ADS-B Out is one example of a mandate that applies to most aircraft operators. On the other hand, the rule for datalink recording only applies to those who currently employ datalink services as part of their flight regime. One variable in requirements is the age of an aircraft. Sometimes, grandfather clauses excuse or delay equipage, while for new aircraft you can expect to find mandated equipment already installed. Be careful though. ‘Equipped’

does not necessarily mean the current version – or as is often the case, the pilot’s use of the equipment needs to be approved.

Equipage Requirements for Mandates

Drilling down into the equipage requirements themselves, the overarching area of focus applicable to most business aircraft is technology upgrades solving Communication, Navigation and Surveillance needs. Figure B (below) represents a stratospheric view of outstanding critical mandates, applicable between now and 2020. As with all mandates, there are local variations to applicability, based on location and which aircraft platform you operate. A clear and crucial factor to be gleaned from this table is mandates due for implementation by mid-2020. If you own a business jet journeying around the planet on a regular basis, then you can anticipate the mandates will universally apply.

This Figure is forward looking, so do not be caught out if you are in the market for a used aircraft. Check for existing and recent compliance requirements, such as TCAS 7.1 CVRFDR, ELT and FANS Phase 1 implementation for the North Atlantic Tracks (NAT). Also, note that the NAT is only one of several major oceanic or remote regions where maintaining track is enforced. Concurrent deadlines drive the need to schedule both ADS-B Out and NAT FANS Phase 2 during the same visit, so it is already likely major shops will be full. Savvy operators will have scheduled already, especially if they need to undergo a known major inspection within the next 16 months.

Discretionary Upgrades

Having scrubbed safety actions and airspace equipage requirements, and assuming funds are still available, decisions can now be made on discretionary items. A set of priorities, unique to each Flight Department, will be derived from where and how flights are conducted. However, before evaluating upgrade options Flight Departments should check for any due non-safety related repairs and related mods. These may also contribute to savings in operating costs. Chart A (top left) is a representation of where discretionary upgrade decisions are focused. Of course, this varies by operation (and there is overlap) but ask the average Director or Operations and they may come up with a similar pie segment diagram. Note: ‘For the good of the aircraft’ refers to discretionary, rather than safety, while ‘Company overall’ potentially benefits everyone (front, back and the CFO). Chart B (top right) is the same chart as Chart A, but includes equipage within each of the pie segments that in the real world can overlap. It is incumbent upon the Flight Department to balance need against desire, connecting the dots between benefits and a reduction in operating costs, while always retaining funds for an unexpected event. Other difficulties within the decision process are the short-, medium- and long-term plans for the aircraft. These Advertising Enquiries see Page 12

For the good of the aircraft

alone can be drivers behind a ‘go’ or ‘no-go’ decision. They are also a factor within the current lag in ADS-B implementation.

Summary

In the order of aircraft safety, airspace requirements, discretionary service and upgrades, a Flight Department may prioritize budgets and schedule aircraft modifications. The words ‘required’ and ‘discretionary’ sit either side of a line where difficult decisions are necessary and finances may not be readily available. ‘Required’ can drive a decision to trade an aircraft early, while ‘discretionary’ can contribute and speed it along. Selecting an aircraft based on its mission requirements is not subject to an analysis of performance and specifications alone. It includes a thorough understanding of the equipment and features onboard, including whether the current status meets the latest version of the requirement. Choosing an aircraft should include at least a cursory review of its ability, later in life, to cope with emerging airspace requirements. T

NEW AVANTI EVO

AirGO AOC Package

©PiaggioAerospace

German AOC operation by most experienced Avanti operator with the largest Avanti fleet in Europe. Fast and easy enrolment: • No enrolment cost • Experienced pilots… Just buy and fly! FEATURES New Noise Reduced Propeller / Anti-Skid / Pro Line 21 / LPV & ADSB out Electronic Charts and Maps Overlay / Paperless Cockpit / 2nd GPS Garmin Steep Approach (approved at London City Airport) Max Take Off Weight Increase (12,100 lbs.) / Polished Leading Edges CABIN • VIP 6 Seat Cabin Arrangement in your color specifications 4 single passenger seats in club arrangement with extra wide space & Dual executive tables, 2 single side-facing seats in front & power outlets • Big refreshment center and additional cabinet • Fully enclosed lavatory, sink with water system and wardrobe

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