Guest Editor’s VIEWPOINT

Charles Porteous

Are you Ready to Embrace the Inevitable Opportunity? very year, I very much look forward to attending Business Aviation events such as NBAA-BACE, EBACE and others. These events allow me to see first-hand the changes we often hear about when conducting marketing research interviews and surveys for our international Business Aviation clients who come from across the industry spectrum. Over the years, I have seen the emergence (and disappearance) of new OEMs, r apid growth in international markets and the rise in prominence of e-commerce and connectivity providers, among many other developments. Looking back, while Business Aviation is a relatively conservative industry, its evolution since my entry in 1998 is still breathtaking. A new trend, which is undeniable and now very visible, is the rise in prominence of new generational cohorts in our industry. They are now regular users of business aircraft and are solidly installed in management positions among Business Aviation providers. Baby Boomers (born 1946-64), while continuing to play key senior decision-making roles, are now retiring in greater numbers and thus passing the torch to younger generations, such as Generation X (born 1965-80) and Millennials (born after 1980). You only have to walk the floor at NBAA -BACE to see generational change playing out in real time, where the booths of companies offering new service innovations and technology are filled with younger managers, while more established businesses have a more familiar balance of young and old. Attendance at general information sessions and press events held at shows also highlight these generational differences.

E

Why Does This Matter?

We see in our research that buying preferences, ways of doing business and even ways of accessing and using business aircraft often differ among generational cohorts. The differences are profound. For example, younger generations value the “experience” of Business Aviation and tend to derive less pleasure from ownership itself. Being relatively new to our industry, they place a high emphasis on leveraging technology an d rely less on

personal relationships when flying or doing business. Even pilot interfaces, such as avionics, and the operational tools used by flight departments, now need to reflect a “touch and toggle” interface. These examples are just the tip of the iceberg. The list is endless, and the changes are happening now. The key to successfully navigating this new multigenerational reality is to listen care fully to the needs of all your customers and ensure generational viewpoints are part of your business planning and product development. Those who understand different age segments are best positioned to capitalize on the ever expanding opportunities generational change provides. Ignoring them increases business risk and longterm obsolescence resulting from an overreliance on the belief that what sells to day will continue to sell in the future. Don’t forget, because generational change is gradual, you may not realize it is upon your business until it is too late. The good news for seasoned Business Aviation professionals is that younger cohorts highly value what earlier generations have built, and they covet the good judgement possessed by those who have come before them. Both are extremely valuable as new entrants to Business Aviation “learn the ropes” - albeit on their own terms. Furthermore, the buying power and market influence of mature generations on Business Aviation will continue to be significant for the foreseeable future.

Embrace Change Before it Embraces You

While demographic change is inevitable, it need not be scary. Proactive listening to customer needs, excellent business planning and organizational adaptability can make these important industry developments work in your favor. Of course, shouldn’t you be doing this anyway, even if major demographic change was not on the horizon? ❙ Charles Porteous is founder and president of Seefeld Group, a “voice of the customer” consultancy dedicated to assisting Business Aviation providers make better decisions by gathering objective and measurable feedback from their clients and the market place.

MARKET INDICATORS

Business Aviation Market Summary As 2019 gets underway, there’s much uncertainty around the world that could impact the buying decisions of business aircraft users. Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators offers his perspective of today’s market… ircraft sales professionals and their customers who fly in and around the US and UK should be as aware as anyone of the impacts of the unusual level of uncertainty that has been creeping into the marketplace. With the two leading English-speaking democracies dealing almost simultaneously with the self-inflicted wounds of a prolonged government shutdown (in the case of America) and Brexit (impacting the future relationship between the UK and Europe), innumerable intended and unintended consequences have already become apparent. Why, you may be wondering, should this be a concern to a business aircraft sales person or aircraft buyer? The livelihoods of Mary the TSA agent, Johnny the ATC officer, Annie the civil aviation authority analyst, Simon the pub manager, Jonathan the aerospace engineer, and Joe the plumber are all affected by events they feel powerless to control. Today, they may be working without pay, serving a smaller clientele, preparing paperwork to transfer certain processes of authorizations onto the European Continent, or generally feeling somewhat powerless in the face of uncertainty. If there is one thing that the movers and shakers of industry should agree upon, it is that increasing uncertainty is one of the last things we all need right now.

Human nature is such that many people will hold off, or reduce spending, or will delay investment decisions when faced with unexpected change. While these individual choices may not show up immediately in broad-based measures of economic activity (think national GDP statistics) 70% of the US economy is driven by consumer spending, and slower spending means slower growth. On Sunday, January 20, 2019, fully 10% of US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees scheduled to work over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday (MLK Day) weekend took the day off, with many claiming they were not able to report to work due to financial limitations. According to a TSA statement, this compares to 3.1% on January 20, 2018, a Saturday the weekend following MLK Day last year. Although the TSA does not provide these data by airport, it is known that higher rates at specific airports – including Atlanta Hartsfield International and other key airline hubs – has already necessitated the shutdown of some entry points. Why, you might ask, is all this important to Business Aviation? Even though the commercial airlines are currently preying on talent anywhere they can find it (including BizAv), Business Aviation companies are highly dependent on a fullyfunctioning commercial airline system to be an www.AVBUYER.com

Business Aircraft Market Indicators

So, what were some of the key indicators of the health of the business aircraft market in 2018, and what do we expect in 2019? Although the final numbers are still being tallied, the good news is that the US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) looks to have grown by 2.9% in 2018, a respectable performance and almost double the 10-year average of 1.5% measured from 2008-2017. Fueled by mostly one-time impacts of the US tax and depreciation law changes and a spike in government spending, the US economy motored on, at the expense of higher long-term debt and increased budget deficits, even though the US is not fighting a major war or still recovering from an economic recession. A consensus of forecasts suggest that the US economy will grow at about 2.2% in 2019 (similar to the pace last seen in 2017) after the past year’s flirtation with a 3% growth rate. Just five of the ‘top 20’ national economies that are important to Business Aviation are believed to have grown at a rate in excess of 3% in 2018, although these collectively are home to less than 5% of the world’s business jet fleet.

Airplane Shipments/Transactions

From a business aircraft sales perspective, new business jet deliveries in 2018 appear to have come close to 2017’s numbers, at least based on units. The much-anticipated GAMA shipment report is due for publication on February 20, at which point we will have a clearer picture of how the year ended. At this point in time, we estimate that 2018 business jet shipments were down about 2-3% YoY, excluding the single-engine Cirrus Vision Jet as well as twin-aisle Boeing and Airbus business jetliners. Used business jet retail sales were virtually identical in January-November 2018 (with 2,425 jet sales, as recorded by JETNET) as they were in the same 11-month period in 2017. Paperwork related to sales in the always-strong month of December was still being reviewed at press time, but if 2017 was www.AVBUYER.com

any indication, sales in December 2018 may have approached last year’s final month tally of 325 jets. Despite the stimulating impact of the US tax and depreciation laws on year-end 2018 sales, the industry closets of available inventory are becoming increasingly bare. With just 8.9% of the business jet fleet listed for sale in JETNET databases at press time (that’s a little more than 1,900 aircraft), almost half of that inventory is more than 20 years old. Although December 2018 will probably be remembered as a very good sales month, it is unlikely to have matched the post-recession high of 397 jets sold in the final month of 2015.

Looking Ahead…

What should industry sales professionals and their customers look forward to in 2019? Economists are predicting broadly slower GDP growth in 2019 in North America, Europe, and key markets in Asia Pacific, with a few countries (like rebounding Brazil) being notable exceptions. Limited inventory, a very strong US$, expectations for a slowdown in YoY corporate profit growth, a continuation of last year’s gyrations in equity markets, the harsh realities of a dysfunctional US Government, and the distinct possibility of a ‘hard’ Brexit with no intergovernmental agreement will likely conspire to dampen the enthusiasm of business aircraft customers. In such an environment, some of the spoils, as always, will go to the fast-moving, the fast-thinking, the fast-talking and the deal-seizing. Smart buyers will remember to work with organizations and sales professionals that they have entrusted in the past to help them make one of their most important transportation equipment decisions of the year. Overall, however, we expect new business jet shipments (especially total dollar value) to exceed the levels achieved in 2018, driven by production ramp-up of newly certified models like the Pilatus PC-24, Gulfstream G500 and Bombardier Global 7500, and initial deliveries of in-development and soon-to-be-certified aircraft such as the Cessna Citation Longitude, Gulfstream G600 and Global 6500. If a slowdown in new business jet orders occurs as expected in 2019, this should not become apparent in shipment rates until 2020 or more likely 2021 due to the long production lead-times involved and the fact that much of the near-term delivery slots have already been sold to eagerlyawaiting customers.

Short Term Gain, Mid-Term Pain? Business jet deliveries should heat up in 2019, according to analyst Brian Foley. But improvement could be short-lived. Here’s why… Before hazarding a guess as to what happens in 2019 and beyond, some perspective is useful. In 2008 the number of new business jets delivered worldwide numbered an unsustainable 1,300 units (not a very high-volume business even in the best of times). Following the Great Recession, deliveries dwindled to around half that amount and have stubbornly remained there through today. “I anticipate that things will change for the better this year as brand-new models, which tend to excite the market and cause a spurt of sales, begin to enter the market,” Foley offers. “These spanking-new ships include the G500 and G600 from General Dynamics' Gulfstream division, Global 7500 from Bombardier and Citation Longitude from Cessna. “Hence, I feel 2019 will be a better year than last as these additional jets move the needle upwards on overall industry delivery values and units.” However, Foley sees several factors that question the sustainability of this increase. For example, emerging markets – which once accounted for 40% of all business jet deliveries – are struggling and account for just 15% today. “As a whole, Asia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa are displaying a relative weakness for now,” Foley elaborates. “That leaves the North American powerhouse, principally the US, to drive the market. However, there is growing evidence that its current economic strength won't last forever as the stock market, consumer sentiment and other

metrics begin to suggest otherwise, and with increased talk of a recession looming somewhere around the corner.” Another damper on new business jet sales is that they now depreciate quickly like new cars do as soon as they're driven off the lot. Like a car, in five years a jet will be worth just 50% of its new value, meaning a $35m jet will have a whopping equity loss of over $17m which has taken the market some getting used to. In summary, 2019 results could easily see upwards of a 10% boost over 2018 driven primarily by the impact of several new jet models simultaneously coming to market. However, the duration of the upturn will be challenged as the novelty of the new aircraft wears off and economic reality sets in. MI www.brifo.com

PrivateFly Offers 2019 Industry Predictions Adam Twidell CEO of PrivateFly has offered his industry predictions for 2019, as the company releases its annual trends report for 2018. Following is a selection… Make or break for shared charter programs: For the past few years there has been lots of noise and investment around seat sharing in private jets. However, no-one has yet been able to prove the viability of the business model. 2019 will be make or break time. Investors will not be willing to keep pouring money in if these companies continue to make losses. Industry consolidation ramping up: We’ve seen an increasing trend towards consolidation of businesses within the industry over the past few years. And we’ll see more mergers and acquisitions within the on-demand charter segment this year. It’s still very fragmented and both the customer and the industry would benefit from this being less so. Regulation impact - including Brexit: This year our industry needs to grapple with several global regulation challenges. Brexit will have a major impact, although exactly how is still unclear. Private jet operators need to be able to optimize their flight plans within Europe to make sense commercially. Limitations on inter-European flights will mean more complexity, less choice and, ultimately, customers paying more. In the US, the clock is ticking for the incoming ADS-B requirement set by the FAA which means older aircraft require 16  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

an expensive upgrade to their tracking systems to comply from January 2020 (Europe follows suit in June 2020). This will impact the used market, and potentially increase charter costs on aircraft over 10 years old. New jets will stir up the Super Mid-size market: The Super Mid-size segment will be one to watch this year, as Embraer’s Praetor 600 enters the market alongside Textron’s Citation Longitude. Both will be vying to dethrone the popular Bombardier Challenger 350. More Ultra-Long Range demand: Following the trend seen in the airline segment, at the top of the market we expect to see more long-range clients looking to fly further and choosing higher-priced non-stop flights over fuel stops, for faster overall journey time and uninterrupted sleep. All eyes are on the Global 7500 as it enters service. page 18 MI www.privatefly.com

G500 Used Market Impact? 2018 was a success for the used Business Aviation industry in North America, according to Hagerty Jet Group, as aircraft values stabilized, transactions increased and relative supply decreased… In some cases, pre-owned values increased by as much as 15% for late model, low time aircraft. The manufacturers managed to decrease backlogs and balance inventories for a better delivery mix. Market sentiment in developed economies certainly changed in 2018. Following several years of lacklustre demand and false starts, 2018 started and finished with strong and consistent demand across all sectors. In the US, 100% bonus depreciation compelled many hesitant buyers to engage the market. Pent-up demand along with improving US economic conditions created demand unseen since 20062007. In Q4 2018, would-be buyers were frustrated with the lack of used inventory. Suddenly, volatility in US equity markets is making some buyers reluctant to pull the trigger on an aircraft purchase which means less competition and a potential for inventories to grow again.

G500 Used Market Impact?

As new G500s enter service, we’re hopeful the upgrade cycle will introduce used G450 and G550 inventory in the six- to 10-year-old age range. The new supply will help, but not entirely satisfy strong demand for very new used aircraft less than five years old. Gulfstream’s most notable achievement in 2018 was officially delivering the G500, and it delivered

18  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

eight G500s in Q4. As with all clean sheet design aircraft, there are sure to be a series of growing pains with the G500. Experience from initial G500 operators will be the proving ground for the success of the G500’s future. Next, Gulfstream will shift attention to certifying and delivering the G600 which was anticipated in Q4 2018. Continued delays could heavily impact the anticipated delivery schedule for Gulfstream in 2019.

Gulfstream and Bombardier will go head to head in 2019 on competing aircraft pairs such as the Global 6500 and 5500, the G500 and G600 as the two newest models to enter service. The first Global 7500 entered service in December 2019 and will serve as the corporate demonstrator. More aircraft are expected to enter service in Q1 2019. Although it’s been six years since the G650 entered service, Bombardier has a great product to compete in the UltraLong-Range Jet segment and Bombardier needs to get this aircraft to market to establish a reliability record and generate more sales and a larger market share. Once again, Gulfstream is first to market with the G500 and G600, but Bombardier is close behind with expected certification of the Global 5500 and 6500 by the end of 2019.

Super Mid-Size Segment

In the super mid-size segment of the market, Gulfstream’s G280 has strong competition with the Challenger 350, as always, but the entry of the Embraer Praetor 500 and 600, along with the Citation Longitude, could dilute market share. Meanwhile, the used G280 market is healthy with resale values remaining relatively strong. We can expect a choppy used business jet market in 2019 due to political uncertainty and Equity Market volatility. Demand for aircraft less than five years old will remain strong, but older aircraft will continue to decline in value, although at a slower pace than in 2017. MI www.hagertyjetgroup.com

According to John L. Enticknap and Ron R. Jackson, as FBOs begin to close their books there’s evidence that 2018 was another banner year for the industry, which experienced a peak in Business Aviation flight activity and wild fluctuations in fuel costs. At NBAA-BACE in Orlando in October, Enticknap and Jackson had the opportunity to talk to numerous FBO owners and operators who indicated that 2018 was stacking up to be a very good year for fuel sales. These reports are consistent with the findings in the Annual FBO Fuel Sales Survey conducted in January. Fifty-nine percent of survey respondents said then that they expected fuel sales to increase in 2018 compared to 2017. In the survey at the beginning of the year, 73% of participants said the economy is headed in the right direction. Although the stock market has experienced recent declines, basic economic metrics indicate a strong economy headed into 2019 with unemployment nearing 3% (the lowest in 49 years), a positive gross domestic product growth rate of 3.4%, an increase in both personal and disposable income, and lower fuel costs helping keep inflation in check.

TRAQPak’s review of Year-over-Year (YoY) North American flight activity (December 2018 vs. December 2017) indicates a decrease of 0.5%. December flight activity posted a Month-over-Month decrease, finishing down 7.7% from November 2018. The results by operational category, YoY, were mixed with Fractional activity, again, posting the largest yearly increase. Part 91 activity also posted an increase, while Part 135 activity declined for the seventh straight month. The aircraft categories were mostly negative with Mid-Size Jets posting the only increase from 2017. Turboprops posted the largest decrease.

Month-over-Month

Results by operational category were all down MoM in December, with the Part 91 segment posting the largest monthly decrease. Aircraft categories were all negative, as well, with Turboprops posting the largest decrease.

December Forecast

Looking ahead, TRAQPak analysts estimate there will be a 0.6% increase in overall flight activity Year-over-Year in January 2019. MI www.argus.aero

Flight Activity – Europe

There were 53,546 Business Aviation departures in Europe during December according to WingX, representing a slight increase in YoY activity, boosted by an exceptional growth in business-related piston traffic… December proved to be a strong growth month in France, Spain and Germany, with the UK flat, and Switzerland and Italy down. Russia experienced a 10% drop, and Turkey a 20% decline in departures. For FY2018, Germany had the most growth with flights up 5%. For the full year, 13 of the 20 largest markets in Europe were up in 2018, though of the biggest markets only Germany and Spain experienced what could be described as ‘robust’ growth. Activity clearly slowed in H2 2018 in the UK, France and Italy. Flight activity within Europe was essentially flat during December. A big gain was recorded in arrivals from North America while there was a drop-off in flights from Africa, the CIS region and the Middle East. Business jet flights from China into Europe were up by 11% in 2018. AOC/Charter activity comprised almost 60% of all flights in December but was flat YoY with solid declines in business jet flights. ‘Short’ sectors were up by 4% this month due to piston flying activity. “Overall flight activity trends in December were flattered by the big increase in business piston traffic,” summarized Richard Koe, Managing Director of WingX Advance. “Clearly business jet demand slumped in France and especially Paris due to the widespread protests. “The outlook for 2019 will depend significantly on the genuine demand for replacement and upgrade of older aircraft as new business jets come off the production line in larger numbers.” page 22 MI www.wingx-advance.com

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition Asset Insight’s market analysis on December 31, 2018 (covering 94 fixed-wing models and 1,591 aircraft listed for sale) revealed a 4.3% decrease to the tracked inventory fleet (71 units), with all four groups contributing to the reduction… Small Jets led the way with a 6% decrease, Medium Jets were next at 5.1%, Turboprops decreased 4.3%, while Large Jets posted the smallest inventory fleet decrease at 2.8%. Sales transactions put a serious dent in the inventory fleet during the last month of 2018. Large Jets won the 2018 value competition, while Medium Jet sellers absorbed the largest value loss. Small Jets and Turboprops experienced a minor value change – the former an improvement and the latter a decline.

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

Fleet asset quality remained steady as 2018 closed. Large Jet transactions focused on lower quality, and higher priced assets (presumably due to good values) while the asset quality of Medium Jets sold was mixed. Higher quality assets traded among the Small Jet group, while Turboprop inventory quality recorded a 12-month best with respect to the number of upcoming maintenance events for the remaining fleet, although these will, on average, be more expensive to complete. Overall, the tracked inventory posted the following: The Quality Rating remained in the ‘Excellent’ range, although it decreased a bit to 5.300 on Asset Insight’s scale of -2.5 to 10. The year ended with Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) remaining virtually unchanged since November and, at $1.415m, the figure was slightly better (lower) than the 12-month average.

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% and, during Q4 2018, assets whose ETP Ratio was 40% or more were listed for sale over 57% longer on average than aircraft whose Ratio was below 40% (246 versus 386 Days on Market). December’s analysis revealed that nearly 53% of all tracked models and over 62% of the tracked fleet posted an ETP Ratio above 40%. The tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio worsened slightly to finish 2018, increasing to 65.6% from November’s 65.1%. As usual, Turboprops led the way at 51.1%, the best (lowest) ETP Ratio; Large Jets followed with an improvement at 58.8%; Small Jets worsened to 66.4%; and, Medium Jets worsened to 77.8% following three consecutive monthly improvements.

Asset Quality Rating

$ Millions

Overall asset quality for the inventory fleet decreased a bit due to higher quality assets transacting. Still, both Quality Rating and Maintenance Exposure remained better than the 12-month average, giving both buyers and sellers the opportunity to structure transactions offering good value.

Large Jets:

Inventory decreased by 10 units of mostly lower asset quality aircraft, resulting in the highest (best) Quality Rating for the year along with the lowest Maintenance Exposure figure over the past four months. Ask Price decreased 2%, but the group still posted a strong YoY increase. With an ETP Ratio at its lowest figure since April, buyers can still find good deals, while sellers can secure some good values in return.

Medium Jets:

Our tracked fleet’s inventory decreased by 26 units while Ask Price remained steady. Asset Quality fell 0.4% due to higher quality assets trading last month, but the fleet still improved 1.4% over the past quarter. The real problem for sellers in 2018 was the 14.6% decrease in Ask Prices, even though they remained steady during the past month and lost less than one percent during Q4. With Maintenance Exposure registering higher (worse) than average, the group’s ETP Ratio has also taken a pounding, increasing (worsening) nearly 20% since last December. This group’s marketability indicators are simply not creating a transaction-friendly environment.

Small Jets:

The fleet for sale decreased by 30 units in December. With primarily higher quality assets changing ownership, both asset quality and Maintenance Exposure worsened for the month and the quarter. The average Ask Price decreased 2% in December, but still improved 4.4% for the quarter and nearly 1% since December 2017. The good news lies in the group’s marketability, as its ETP Ratio improved from 80% last December to 66.4% in December 2018. Sellers can only hope that trend continues into the new year.

mix change reduced the number of upcoming maintenance events, but those events will cost more to complete, as Maintenance Exposure increased (worsened) 1.5% in December and 3.6% during Q4. As suspected, November’s Ask Price increase could not be supported with the figure dropping 1.1% in December, although pricing did increase 1.7% during Q4. The ETP Ratio is not stellar, but it has consistently been the best among the four groups, and we anticipate demand and marketability to remain strong for Turboprops as we enter 2019.

Buying a Jet in 2019? Questions to Ask Your Broker With some markets swinging into sellers’ territory and with avionics mandates looming imminently, Jet Tolbert offers thoughts on what a business jet buyer should be asking their broker in 2019. here are some important questions all aircraft buyers should seek clarification on prior to buying a business jet or turboprop in 2019. With upcoming aviation mandates, some of the key questions buyers should ask their brokers center on ADS-B compliance. Following are the top three questions I believe will help those who are shopping the market for a business jet to avoid making a purchase they’ll end up regretting…

T

1) Does the aircraft have ADS-B? If not, has the seller arranged a slot for an ADS-B installation? 32  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Buyers of business aircraft need to know about the details of a prospective aircraft’s compliance, not just whether the airplane conforms to the ADS-B mandate. It’s important for the buyer to be as wellinformed as possible, asking their broker first. With the deadline for ADS-B compliance less than a year away and many aircraft yet to be upgraded, one of the big questions within the industry is how many airplanes will be grounded when the deadline passes on January 1, 2020. Every buyer shopping today’s used jet and turboprop marketplace needs to be thoroughly aware of the circumstances surrounding an aircraft of interest with respect to its ADS-B compliance. If it does not already have ADS-B installed, the buyer

BUYING & SELLING AIRCRAFT

“Buyers may find that sellers are opting for the cheapest solution, covering the necessary bases to promote their aircraft as being compliant with the ADS-B mandate.” should at the very least discount the aircraft’s value, based on the cost of the most feasible and userfriendly ADS-B solution for that make/model. Moreover, buyers should seek to arrange for the necessary upgrade to be accomplished at the time of purchase. If the aircraft of interest does have ADS-B installed, it’s worth finding out whether the upgrade was accomplished using an aftermarket installation with add-on or ‘stand-alone’ equipment in order to meet the requirement? Alternatively, it may have been accomplished with a factory installation, utilizing upgrades to the factory-equipped avionics suite and providing a baseline upgrade for future enhancements and updates. Though not always the case, this option may be costlier to perform upfront, but may well prove favorable in the long-term. Buyers may find that sellers are opting for the cheapest solution, covering the necessary bases to promote their aircraft as being compliant with the ADS-B mandate. It is the responsibility of the buyer to work with their broker to establish the facts. 34  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

2) Do different ADS-B solutions really matter? On many jet models, the OEM’s ADS-B solution is accomplished by sending the factory installed avionics suite back to the manufacturer for hardware and software updates. This can sometimes be more complex (and thus expensive) than the solutions offered by non-OEM providers that are usually achieved by installing additional equipment that does not interface with the current avionics suite (hence the term ‘stand-alone’ solution). Often in older Light and Mid-size Jets the standalone option does not limit possible future upgrades. However, many newer or Large Jets have a more complex issue for buyers to consider. These aircraft tend to have more integrated avionics suites. Moreover, there may also be multiple mandates to consider beyond ADS-B, including FANS 1/1A for Atlantic crossings and CPDLC for European flights. In these more complex applications, while the www.AVBUYER.com

use of a stand-alone upgrade can be a costeffective solution, they can also make the aircraft’s operations slightly more complicated as pilots will be required to enter the same information into more than one place to ensure that all navigation systems are following the same instructions. Additionally, because stand-alone installs don’t update the existing software you may find aircraft that advertise ADS-B compliance but have outdated and soon-to-be unsupported avionics systems if they are not soon upgraded. So those who are in the market to buy an older aircraft should do their homework with their brokers.

3. What does the market say? It is worth buyers checking the market to see whether aircraft with both types of upgrades are selling, or whether the aircraft with a particular ADSB or FANS 1/1A upgrade is lingering on the market. A well-connected broker should offer some transaction history of aircraft with the different

types of upgrades, highlighting which might be less desirable in the current marketplace. This information will give you some good leverage when you’re negotiating a price with the seller.

In Summary

While avionics mandates are a very hot topic today, the above information should highlight that it’s important to work with a broker who has expertise in the aircraft types you are interested to buy. There are other important questions to ask, though, including some of the less obvious items like potential Airworthiness Directives (AD) and Service Bulletins (SB) that may be coming down the line. Choosing the right buyer’s agent will help you stay ahead of the curve with all aspects of market and technical considerations. After all, an established brokerage will want to be there to assist you with the future sale of today’s acquisition...❙

How to Choose the Right Corporate Helicopter

AVBUYER.com Michael Roberts began his aviation career as an air traffic controller. He started what would become JETVEND aircraft brokerage in 2007 and today sells both turbine helicopters and fixed-wing jets, while additionally serving as the buyer for a helicopter leasing company. Mr. Roberts can be reached at michael@jets.aero

What are the key considerations when buying a corporate helicopter? Aircraft broker Michael Roberts offers insights and tips to help ensure the rotorcraft you buy is the best fit for your mission needs… he corporate helicopter market could certainly be larger than it currently is. There are companies and individuals whose time and travel needs could be met by helicopters, but who are not currently utilizing rotorcraft. Those choosing the right corporate helicopter, however, enjoy a truly competitive advantage and enhanced travel safety. The best helicopter is ultimately the one which you will use. It may sound overly simple, but this idea will ultimately assist those seeking to buy a helicopter in their selection of the right make and model, down to the selection of which serial number to purchase. In many cases, there will be several different models which could work almost equally well for corporate missions, and in these cases other factors come in to the selection process.

T

Mission Suitability

The first question is ‘mission suitability’. To determine the mission suitability of a model, buyers need to create a list of role-suitable helicopter models they’re considering. For example, are you an organization which doesn’t allow its executives to travel in singleengine aircraft? Does the corporation have policies ruling out operations over certain areas or restricting night operations? Irrespective of the merits of many turbine helicopters, if company policy prohibits single-engine aircraft or certain types of operations, your selection of models will be reduced to twin-engine helicopters, or those performing within the confines of that policy. After determining which of the remaining models meet the published range and payload you require, it’s worth asking pilots rated in the models you’re considering to run flight plans over an anticipated route you plan to fly on a typically hot summer’s day, with the typical number of passengers you would anticipate transporting. Pay attention to the time of flight and fuel used as part of your consideration. www.AVBUYER.com

It pays to repeat this process as many times as necessary to confirm that the helicopter make/model is suitable for your mission need. Having visited helicopter operators in over 40 countries, you’d be surprised at the number of times I’ve heard of somebody buying something that ‘can't take off’.

Parts, Mechanics and Pilot Availability

The next major factor in choosing your model is the availability of parts, rated mechanics and the pilots you plan to use. Do not assume a helicopter does or doesn’t have parts available based on model year alone. All the major OEMs work diligently to have worldwide availability of parts, but things do happen, and supplier issues or a sudden demand for a part can result in a (mostly temporary) shortage. The best way to obtain this kind of data is to visit the maintenance facility you’re consider using. While you’re there, ask if they are consistently able to complete work on time, keeping downtime to a minimum. After all, when things go wrong it is not unheard of for a helicopter to be grounded for a six-month period. Be diligent and current in your research. While it is tempting to simply list and recommend certain models, the models that work best for your needs absolutely depend on the location of the intended base of your operations. Do you have pilot(s) on staff who are already trained in the model you’re considering? Or do you intend to send them to flight school? Are you planning to use local contract pilots on an asneeded basis? You will need to know who’s going to fly your machine. Many clients have long term professional pilots on their staff whose requirements are a critical part of their selection process.

What’s Your Budget?

Narrowing down the right tool for the job will reveal the price it will take to acquire one of the

“You should purchase your corporate helicopter with the expectation that your use could grow.” helicopters on your list. While many people begin with a price range and select helicopters that fit that range, it’s worth doing things the other way around first to see if the process reveals another model(s). Remember, the best helicopter is the one that you will use. A bargain-basement machine that’s stuck in the hangar for any reason is no bargain at all!

Personal Considerations

Don't forget the personal and non-financial considerations. Comfort and appearance are driving factors in many areas of business and should not be overlooked here. If you find the right machine with the wrong colors, ask about seat cover changes, stripes or paint jobs as a part of your overall consideration. On the flip side, don't buy the wrong helicopter because it looks great… Awesomelooking ‘hangar queens’ will do nothing to meet your mission need if they don’t fit the bill, regardless of how impressive they look in the hangar.

Communication is Key…

Communicate to your team, pilot, broker and potential service providers special considerations which may have an impact on your choice. For example: 42  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

• • • • •

Will the helicopter be shipped or flown to another region or country? What are the seasonal changes like in the places you plan to operate? Will it be based on a yacht, at a private residence, private airfield, at a standard FBO, or at a private hangar? Do you need to rent or charter? Will the helicopter fly only as corporate transportation, or for other uses too?

Thinking Ahead…

You should purchase your corporate helicopter with the expectation that your use could grow. With that in mind, what are the possibilities that could open-up? Will you show more sites to potential business partners? Will you seek to impress guests with aerial tours of your city? Will you spend more time with your family? Will you make more frequent visits to a client or facility? Will your overall use of fixed-wing aircraft reduce as a result of your newly purchased helicopter? Many of the answers to these questions about growing need will help you select the corporate helicopter that is right, not only for today but for the next several years. Next time, we’ll discuss the selection of a specific helicopter serial number, the inspection and closing process. Stay tuned… More information from www.jets.aero ❙ www.AVBUYER.com

Where is the Sweet-Spot for a Jet’s Scrap Value? Following on from his December article, ‘How to Understand the Scrap Value of a Jet’, aircraft appraisals expert Jeremy Cox continues his discussion. Is there a sweet-spot to part an aircraft out earlier than is normally considered the last-ditch operation?

A

ll business jets have cycle-limited components. Few have an actual airframe limit imposed upon them. With fatigue testing, OEMs predict that few (if any) of their aircraft will accumulate enough flights/cycles prior to retirement to reach a point where structural damage occurs. As an example, Dassault has the Supplemental Structural Inspection Program (SSIP) for the Falcon 20 series, requiring an aircraft reaching either 20,000 flights or 30,000 hours to undergo an in48  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

depth structural Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) program prior to it being allowed to continue in service. To my knowledge, excepting a handful of freighter-converted Falcon 20s no corporate-use Falcon 20 has triggered the need for an SSIP. In fact, the average cycles for the entire worldwide fleet of business jets is currently below 5,000. So, if physical deterioration isn’t a key factor in an aircraft reaching the end of its useful life, what is?

The Three Forms of Depreciation

When operating as a certified aircraft appraiser, I am required to consider three forms of depreciation, including: • • •

AIRCRAFT Hawker Series (RR Viper) Hawker Series (Fan) Challengers 300 Series Challengers 600 Series Global Series Learjet Series (CJ610) Learjet 30 Series Learjet 40 Series Learjet 50 Series Learjet 60 Series Learjet 70 Series Citation 500 Series (JT15) Citation 500 Series (PW530/540 Series) Citation Mustang Straight CJ (525) Citation 525 Series (1,2,3,4 and +) Citation 650 Series Citation 680 Series Citation 750 Series Falcon 10/100 Falcon 20 Series (CF700) Falcon 20-5 Falcon 200 Falcon 2000 (CFE Classic) Falcon 2000 Series (P&WC) Falcon 50 Series (-3, -4) Falcon 50 Series (-40, EX) Falcon 900 Series (Non EASy) Falcon 900 Series (EASy) Falcon 7X Gulfstream Series (RR Spey) Gulfstream GIV & GIVSP Gulfstream GV Astra Series (Non ‘G’ Designation)

Physical Deterioration Functional Obsolescence Economic Obsolescence.

The American Society of Appraisers manual ‘Valuing Machinery and Equipment’ (third edition) provides the following definitions… Physical Deterioration is a form of depreciation where loss in value or usefulness of a property is due to the using up or expiration of its useful life caused by wear and tear, deterioration, exposure to various elements, physical stresses, and similar factors. Functional Obsolescence is a form of depreciation in which the loss in value or usefulness of a property is caused by inefficiencies or inadequacies of the property itself, when compared to a more efficient or less costly replacement property that new technology has developed. Symptoms suggesting the presence of functional obsolescence are excess operating cost, excess construction (excess capital cost), over-capacity, inadequacy, lack of utility, or similar conditions. Economic Obsolescence (sometimes called ‘external obsolescence’) is a form of depreciation where the loss in value of a property is caused by factors external to the property. These may include such things as the economics of the industry; availability of financing; loss of material and/or labor sources; passage of new legislation; changes in ordinances; increased cost of raw materials, labor, or utilities (without an offsetting increase in product price); reduced demand for the product; increased competition; inflation or high interest rates; or similar factors. It’s rare for a business jet to be significantly depreciated due to Physical Deterioration, except in the case of a non-corrosion related structural damage event. Normally either Functional Obsolescence (i.e. Dispatch Reliability) or Economic Obsolescence (RVSM, Stage-III, ADS-B, etc.) are the big factors that may significantly depreciate an older business jet. It is important to remember that depreciation as it is defined in appraisal practice, is different from depreciation as it is defined in accounting practice where: “The amount of accounting depreciation 50  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

taken over the life of an asset cannot exceed its cost. Once the net book value reaches zero, no more depreciation is taken. However, the ‘fully depreciated’ asset may remain in service and still have a value for valuation purposes.” To date, the average year of manufacture for the entire segment of business aircraft that have been retired, withdrawn from service, or written-off is 1975 (44 years old). That average is from ~7,000 business aircraft (~4,000 of which are jets). Aside from the tragedies of accidental destruction; reasons for the retirement of these aircraft may have included: • • • • •

Excessive Fuel Consumption Inability to Comply with Noise Requirements Lack of Available Service and/or Support Lack of Available Parts Technical Mandates and/or Regulations

EOLA Value ‘Benefit to Cost’ analysis, accounting for the timevalue of money must be performed. (This analysis might be eliminated by a damage event.) While there are too many unique variables specific to the aircraft owner that must be considered when a Benefit to Cost analysis is performed, and an example is beyond the scope of this article, I have studied a plethora of ‘Residual Value’ tables, the demography of the retired business jet fleet, damage diminution standards and other factors with the aim of providing an opinion on the value of an End of Life Aircraft (EOLA), from new delivery to scrap, as compared to the expected Residual Value over a 20-year period. First, we must look at an overview of some of the models that constitute the retired fleet. Table A shows the percentage of diminution (number of aircraft built, versus number of aircraft still active), current age of the oldest active aircraft of each series, as well as the projected (in some cases ‘surpassed’) 20-year milestone of the oldest active aircraft of each series. www.AVBUYER.com

1995 GV Value In Summary

Through analysis, the following conclusions can be drawn in relation to where the ‘sweet-spot’ to part-out an End of Life Aircraft could lie: •

The highest part-out values (POV) are found when fleet diminution is less than 10%.

POV is higher than fair market value (FMV) from 0% of fleet diminution (FD) to just below 4% (POV equals FMV at 4%).

Then POV is higher than FMV again until 8% is reached (POV equals FMV again at 8%).

O

Would a Recession Influence Jet Retirements? How would another recession impact the current business jet fleet? Mike Chase considers how fleet retirements might look, while reflecting on the fallout from the Great Recession of 2007-2009 in his latest >>JETNET KNOW MORE analysis… s much as we do not wish for another recession, we continue to want to learn more about how the pre-recession market compares to where we are now. Market downturns do precipitate an increase in aircraft retirements and storage as demand drops off. As a reference point for the ‘bad times’, the periods of the first Gulf War and recession (19901992), the Asian financial crisis (1997-1998), 9/11 and the second gulf war (2001-2003), and most recently the Great Recession (2007-2009) are all examples. Our focus in this article is on the aircraft fleet during the pre- and post-Great Recession period. Even during the Great Recession, which lasted 18 months per the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the aircraft in-service fleet continued to increase. Production of new aircraft (as slow as it seemed) continued to outpace the retiring inventory. However, in both psychological and practical terms the Great Recession lasted for more th an a decade.

A

Following, we’ll outline the current trends for retired business aircraft, drawing some comparisons with pre-recession times.

Leading Causes for Retirement

The value of an aircraft depreciates over time while the cost to operate and maintain the aircraft increases. Eventually the aircraft depreciates to a point where it is worth less than the value of its parts, and the decision can be made to retire and begin dismantling the aircraft. Historically, according to JETNET, more than 60% of all retired business jets were parted out or damaged. By comparison, more than 80% of turbine helicopters were retired due to being ‘withdrawn from use’ and ‘written-off’ from accidents. Table A (below) presents the various categories of aircraft researched by JETNET. The average retired fleet percentage of all c ategories combined is 18.8%. Business jets have by far the lowest percentage of retired airframes at just 12.1% of the total fleet built.

A Note on Stored Aircraft

Aircraft that are parked (not flying) and have retained a registration number are considered stored. These aircraft may be returned to active operation. There are always some aircraft in storage. These are usually older, out-of-production aircraft, less efficient types, aircraft needing significant maintenance or refurbishment, or simply surplus to requirement. There are specific storage procedures that are required by airframe and engine manufacturers to preserve the residual value of these aircraft, including the drainage of all fuel and oil. Associated cost includes storage rental (hangared or not) and storage maintenance fees. The longer an aircraft remains in storage, the higher the probability it will be retired. After an aircraft is retired, many of its parts (engines, landing gears or avionics components) continue to be utilized on other aircraft. The fuselage, however, has little value and is considered scrap metal. At the end of December 2018, JETNET data showed over 1,700 aircraft/helicopters were in

58  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

storage. Commercial jet and turboprop airliners made up 91% of the ‘in-storage’ fleet. Business jets and business turboprops, by comparison, made up 6% of the total stored fleet.

Business Jet Retirements 2004-2018

Record numbers of aircraft flooded the used market during the Great Recession, impacting aircraft values, and no doubt prompting the retirement of some of the oldest jets and turboprops in the aging fleet. Depicted in Table B (above), the total number of retired business jets increased over the past 15 years, from 1,123 to 3,034 (1,911 additional airframes as of the end of 2018). These retired business jets now represent 12.1% of the total fleet. The compounded average growth rate (CAGR) for retired business jets over the past 15 years is 7.4%. During this same 15-year period the total business jet fleet grew from 13,918 to 25,103 (+11,185 units). The CAGR is 4.3% over this 15year period. Thus, the ratio of business jets being added vs those retired is almost 6:1.

Fleet Retirement by Year

When we look closely at the overall aircraft fleet retirement numbers since 2004 some interesting trends emerge. The peak for aircraft retirements came in 2013 when 2,625 aircraft were retired. The recession years (2008-2009) and the two years immediately following saw a steady level of retirements annually. More recently, 2015 through 2018 has brought a steady growth in retirement levels. In 2018, commercial airliners (665), business jets (399), turbine helicopters (353) and piston helicopters (232) led the way for aircraft retirements.

Current Active BizJet Fleet/Fleet for Sale (by Age)

As shown in Table C (above), there are 4,077 airframes (19%) of the active business jet fleet that are over thirty years old. Of those 4,077 aged airframes, 539 (27%) are for sale currently. The 11-20 years-old category has the largest numbers of active fleet (7,841), with 662 for sale. Unsurprisingly, the two older age groups have over 10% of the fleet for sale (buyer’s market) while the two younger age groups represent a sellers’ market with less

www.AVBUYER.com

than 10% of the fleet for sale. JETNET data shows that for business jets aged 30 and over an inflection point occurs where a greater percentage for retirements take place.

In Summary

The industry should be under no illusion that when the market turns, a correction will occur. We have determined that during and following the Great Recession, as part of the market correction process there was an increase in business jet retirements. Business jet retirements in the post-recession period occurred at an average airframe age 2.7 years older than for jets retired in the pre-recession period. The overall impact of the Great Recession on the aging business jet segment has been that these airframes are being retired in greater numbers, while also being held in service two-to-three years longer than they were prior to the recession. As we approach the 2020 ADS-B Out mandate and the natural process of attrition unfolds, OEMs are ready and eager to fill the void wit h a long line of more efficient, state-of-the-art models. T

What to Consider When Chartering Your Jet Previously, we explored the possibility of reducing the total cost of aircraft ownership by hiring a management company to charter your business jet when you’re not using it. Here, David Wyndham discusses potential issues and concerns for operators to consider before choosing this path… utting an aircraft on a charter operator's certificate may incur expenses for the initial inspections that are required to demonstrate its compliance with FAA standards for commercial service. Both the aircraft and crew must conform to the charter operator's approved operating limitations. The aircraft must also be enrolled on the charter operator's approved maintenance program, which could require more frequent inspections, while commercial operations may necessitate the installation of additional safety equipment and the crews must train to the approved operating standards of the charter operator. The above costs, which are typically borne by the aircraft owner, can range from several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars. Given the added costs of approving your aircraft for on-demand commercial service, there must be sufficient charter revenue to make the arrangement work financially. The more you fly for your own purposes, however,

P

www.AVBUYER.com

the less time the charter operator has available to monetize your aircraft. This can be a delicate balance to find, since scheduling charter flights will impact the aircraft’s availability for company travel. Moreover, peak demand for charter may overlap with your own intended travel schedule, especially in the summer and around holidays. So, you will either forgo the charter revenue or be forced to adjust your own itinerary to accommodate. Some charter operators may claim that they can charter your aircraft for 700 hours per year but that won’t be possible unless you fly infrequently and avoid peak travel periods. If you fly more than 100–150 hours annually, you may not be able to generate enough charter revenues to make the extra work worthwhile.

Growing Maintenance Cost

Another consideration is that maintenance costs will likely increase, driven – in part – by the added equipment that must be operational for dispatching the aircraft on a Part 135 trip.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019 

63


Ownership 3.qxp_Finance 21/01/2019 16:21 Page 3

OWNERSHIP

AVBUYER.com

“General wear and tear will also increase on your aircraft.” The charter regulations may not allow for as much flexibility in terms of what equipment may be required, meaning that some inoperative equipment that your pilot may elect to fly with on a Part 91 flight may be required for a revenue flight. For a business jet you must have operational Wi-Fi onboard. For many charter customers, Wi-Fi is expected. While the charter operator can pass on a portion of the fees to the client, the cost of modern connectivity equipment is ultimately borne by you, the owner. General wear and tear will also increase on your aircraft. Part of that will be due to the increased utilization. That interior you just refurbished won’t last as many years if you double or triple the use. Another factor is the ‘rental effect’, whereby charter customers may take less care of your aircraft than you would, resulting in occasional damage. Another contributor to the increased maintenance costs is the shipping of parts. If the charter operator is to generate significant charter revenue, the aircraft cannot remain grounded for very long while it awaits delivery of a part. Most non-scheduled parts will therefore be shipped using expedited service, resulting in higher costs. Total parts usage may also increase where the charter operator elects to replace several parts at once to get a charter trip launched on schedule, rather than spend time troubleshooting to find the exact problem. Though this is admittedly rare, it does occasionally happen when generating

revenue and taking care of the charter client has priority over minimizing costs.

Other Issues to Consider

There may be tax benefits associated with chartering your aircraft, however. Essentially, you will ‘lose’ money, and that loss may be advantageous with proper tax planning. It is important to note that you, as the owner, are not actively involved in the charter business so the charter revenue is usually characterized as passive income. You should consult a trained aviation tax advisor to discuss how charter revenue will impact your taxes and tax depreciation. Finally, speaking of depreciation, the decrease in market value for your aircraft will be accelerated in line with the greater utilization charter flying will generate. Some of that loss in value can be offset by having your aircraft on a guaranteed hourly maintenance program (GHMP). The GHMP will accrue for maintenance and this reserve account will ensure that major maintenance items will be covered, especially for the engines. The GHMP can help minimize the market depreciation. In summary, if you are not using your aircraft for a lot of flying, can take advantage of the possible tax benefits, and have a charter management company that you can work with, then chartering your aircraft can be a positive experience. Either way, you must weigh the decision carefully before deciding which route to take. ❙

AVBUYER.com

Business Aircraft Values: Medium Jets Of all the business jet

categories, none does more to balance

capability with utility

than the Medium Jet segment; and no

segment provides

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

F

66  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

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

Medium Cabin Jet Price Guide

The following Medium jets’ Average Retail Price Guide represents current values published in the Aircraft Bluebook–Price Digest. The study spans model years from 1999 through Winter 2018. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Citation Sovereign+ values reported in the Winter 2018 edition of the Bluebook show $12.5m for a 2016 model, $12.0m for a 2015 model and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. With the reader’s knowledge of aircraft, equipment, ra nge and performance, the following Guide allows the reader to determine the best value aircraft for consideration. Note: We have included 30 aircraft models in the following Medium Jets average price guide, and for additional assistance, Conklin & de Decker’s Performance and Specifications data for these models can be referred to, beginning on page 72

T

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

Description of Cost Elements

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

SPECIFICATIONS - GENERAL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HELICOPTER COMPARISON

Aircraft Comparative Analysis Leonardo AW109E Power vs Bell 429 In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on a pair of popular light twin turbine helicopters for the purpose of valuing the Leonardo AW109E Power.

ollowing, we’ll analyse the performance of the Leonardo AW109E Power and the Bell 429 to see how they compare within the market. We’ll consider productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size) and current market values. First, let’s look briefly at the history behind Leonardo. In July 2000 AgustaWestland was formed when British company GKN and Italian company Finmeccanica merged, with each ho lding a 50% share of their respective helicopter subsidiaries, Agusta and Westland Helicopters. Then in 2004 Finmeccanica acquired GKN’s stake in AgustaWestland. In January 2016 Finmeccanica created a whollyowned company, Leonardo S.p.A. Helicopters, but its aircraft retained their AW model designations.

AW109E Power

The A109 model had been in production from 1996 to 2015, and the AW109E Power is based on the A109K-2 airframe, but offers a wider flight deck and cabin. Ultimately, the AW109E Power is single-pilot IFR certified, and can be equipped with either Pratt & Whitney PW206C or Turbomeca Arrius 2K-1 engines controlled by a Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system.

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, left). In certain cases, helico pters may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that tax payers 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 bu siness use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a sixyear recovery period. There are certain uses of the helicopter, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table E (middle, left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2012 model AW109E Power helicopter in pr ivate (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods, assuming a used 2012 retail price of $3.2m (per Vref).

The current used helicopter market for the AW109E Power shows a total of 44 helicopters for sale with 21 displaying an asking price ranging from $950k to $2.8m. We also reviewed the 18 used Bell 429 helicopters for sale, which displayed eight asking prices ranging from $4.399m to $6.5m. While each serial number is unique, the airframe hours and age/condition will cause great variations in price. Of course, the final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Index (Speed x Range x Cabin Volume / 1,000,000)

1. Seats Full Range with available fuel; 2. The Long Range cruise speed flown to achieve that range; 3. The cabin volume available for passengers and amenities. Others may choose different parameters, but serious helicopter buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the AW109E Power is competitive in its market. Based on 2012 model used prices, the Bell 429 shows a higher retail price (+$1.5m) than the AW109E Power, but also offers a slightly larger cabin volume, lower variable hourly operating cost and slightly more range with seats full. However, the AW109E Power offers greater payload with full fuel capability. The AW109E Power averages three units sold per month and is still a popular model on the used market today. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements and budget precisely when picking which option is the best for them.

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. Our expectations are that the AW109E

Of course, if the AW109E Power helicopter is not outfitted with ADS-B Out it cannot be placed in operation in the US after December 31, 2019 as mandated by the FAA. Buyers must keep this in mind when choosing their next helicopter purchase. â?™

couldn't help but stare. The aircraft parked on the ramp at the FBO had shiny, brand new paint and glistening chromed bright work that had been polished to perfection. The pilots were busy with their pre-flight preparations, and a fuel truck fed the jet's thirsty tanks for an upcoming flight. What was it that caught my interest? I was looking at a Sabreliner 65 (circa 1980), and it looked brand new. What ever could have been the rationale leading someone to spend some serious money upgrading an aircraft that had long passed its prime? Days later I had the opportunity to meet the chief pilot of that Sabreliner's operation and ask first hand. He explained that there were three reasons the decision had been made to invest on upgrades:

I

www.AVBUYER.com

First, the asset had been fully paid years ago and was also completely depreciated. The residual value of the aircraft (in this case) was equal to its scrap value.

Second, since this was an old aircraft, there were no trade-in opportunities and no interest from charter operators to use it to generate revenue. Third, the owner's travel requirements represented one hundred hours of annual utilization (mostly on regional flights) with an occasional vacation trip to the Caribbean.

Essentially the owner enjoyed his aircraft and had (thus far) had a positive ownership experience. What made all that possible, however, was the accumulation of years-worth of in-house expertise on that aircraft. The chief pilot and the director of maintenance had both been with the jet since its purchase and were, without question, experts on its upkeep. There were of course challenges, including the limited availability of training, replacement parts and avionics upgrades, but they felt confident in the success of keeping the aircraft airworthy with its low annual hours of demand. Although this scenario represents a niche opportunity to extend the useful life of an older airplane, it serves well as a primer for discussion about the benefits of investing in upgrades.

Where's the Value in Upgrading?

With the deadline for ADS-B approaching, many operators will have to consider the value of an upgrade. Looking back to when RVSM was mandated, there were a number of aircraft that made their final flights to the salvage yard, owing to the high cost of upgrading air data computers and installing the equipment that would deliver compliance.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019

Maintenance.qxp_Finance 22/01/2019 09:56 Page 3

MAINTENANCE

AVBUYER.com

Other operators opted to stay below FL290, accept higher operational costs and reduced range until they had used all remaining hours prior to their next major maintenance event. Today things are a little different, though. Advancements in technology have reduced costs and helped speed products' entries into the market. Attending a recent aviation trade show, one vendor promised an ADS-B solution that was self-contained within the wingtip nav light. The vendor claimed it would require just three wires and less than six hours for installation. Moreover, the system would come with an opposite matching nav light for aesthetic purposes. Products such as this may breathe new life in the economics of upgrading older aircraft. Upgrade packages for aging airframes have been (and continue to be) developed with the aim of resetting the expiration date of an aircraft's obsolescence. Today, those upgrades that blend new navigational technologies and NextGen compliance with older airframes are very aggressively priced. Moreover, when combined with a powerplant enhancement offering new engines, longer TBO and greater performance and fuel savings, plus new exterior paint and interior refurbishment, aircraft can essentially be branded as 'zero-time'. For operators who already own an upgradable airframe (or even for those with managed

expectations who are looking to buy one), there's value in a lower cost like-new aircraft experience.

Adding Value With Less Capital

One of the greatest challenges in managing corporate aircraft is to add value with less capital. As an example, during scheduled maintenance it's good practice to look for the low-cost 'good-tohave' upgrades that can be completed within the scheduled down-time. Just recently, I opted to change the internal look of one of our jets by adding stitching and piping to the passenger's seats as we waited for a phase inspection to be completed. Previously during a strip and paint project we've opted to pull all inspection covers while the aircraft skin was paintfree to inspect for any signs of corrosion. It certainly pays to think outside the box! Upgrades provide a fresh look that can give new life to older aircraft. The upgrade could be as simple as adding a wireless hard drive to feed digital media to iPads; an off-the-shelf wireless printer to enhance in-flight productivity; a massage seat cover; or a fancy coffee machine. It's about the cost versus the benefit and thinking creatively for ways to bring value, excitement, freshness, and an outstanding service experience to the owner. They will return the effort with a continued commitment of flying privately and reward us with new opportunities for growth. â?™

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

Operators considering the addition or upgrade of an in-flight connectivity system face a dizzying array of options. Dave Higdon speaks to some of the industry leaders to discover how an operator can cut through the choices to identify what works best for them…

ccording to Brian Wilson, national key accounts director, Gogo Business Aviation, it’s best to begin with the very basics. “What is critical to know is what you're starting with. What kind of aircraft will use the equipment?” But that's just the opening question. The answer doesn't necessarily simplify the selection process. Instead, it will narrow down some of the options while expanding others. Irrespective of whether we spoke with Gogo, Satcom Direct or ViaSat, the elements an operator must weigh up follow a familiar pattern: What is your aircraft type (the antenna shape and size alone can limit a system’s application to your jet)? What kind of use do you anticipate needing (i.e. streaming, texting, phoning or viewing)? Where on the planet will you be flying? How many people might simultaneously use the connectivity service? These factors all influence the choices available. With a goal of finding the right level of service, the challenge focuses on getting the best fit – not too much, not too little, but just right for the operation and passengers.

A

Savings Through Applied Options

Gogo’s Brian Wilson has been “getting these questions for years”. Here’s how he helps users sift through the options to find the right fit for them. “Where are they flying? The guy with a King Air is probably mostly domestic,” he establishes. “The guy with a Gulfstream will probably be doing more international flying. “Moreover, how do they use the aircraft? Is it a company aircraft? If so, it will need office

www.AVBUYER.com

services. If it's a personal aircraft for mom, dad and four kids aged 6-16, the priorities are going to be different.” These questions come up again and again. “Once you've told me what you fly, where and how you use it, and how many people usually travel on the aircraft, I can narrow the 15-or-so options down to three or four.” Irrespective of the options, though, in Wilson’s experience the client’s boss usually wants to select “the best” until they learn about the $500k installation cost, plus the $10k-$30k monthly service charges. “That’s when we move from the boss wanting ‘the best’, to the boss enquiring ‘what else do you have?’ “We give them multiple options because of the cost differentials,” he explains. This analogy is how Wilson solves the first part of the equation. But Wilson stresses an important point: Unlike plans for terrestrial high-speed connectivity, when streaming while speeding through the sky there is no unlimited streaming plan for in-flight connectivity. Wilson (and others we interviewed) suggested that some operators flying internationally should consider installing two systems for their aircraft: One terrestrial-based system (like Gogo's Avance L5 product package) for low-coast domestic use, and another satellite-based system (such as Gogo’s upcoming Ku-satellite band) for international operations. Use can then be managed to minimize the service costs. More information from https://business.gogoair.com

Viasat's James Person was keen to note the benefits to Large-Cabin Jets in having global coverage and high-speed connectivity. “We recommend these owners consider our dual band solution which provides system redundancy, near global coverage and Ka-band speeds up to 16Mbps to the aircraft with global Ku-band data included at no additional charge.” But not every operator wants to invest in such a solution. Some look to cost efficiency as opposed to connectivity speed. “There are other considerations for value operators too,” Persons explained. “Perhaps they’re the aircraft’s second owner; maybe they just don’t want to invest much in the aircraft. “Viasat’s Ku-band solution, providing near global coverage, offers plans up to 6Mbps and can be installed for under $400k by a qualified MR O on a G450 (for example).” Persons observes that owners must also evaluate whether the connectivity equipment on their jets today can meet the data and speed demands of tomorrow’s data-rich applications. To help meet such demand we offer the Global Aero Terminal 5510 dual-band Kaband/Ku-band antenna, enabling aircraft to take advantage of Ka- and Ku-band coverage today, and then stay current as we bring on more high capacity global Ka-band satellites without the need to swap out hardware. Whether Ka- or Ku-band, Viasat systems use the same three LRU form factor and wiring to ensure the in-flight connectivity system is futureproofed.

An Open-System Approach

Satcom Direct drew a large crowd to its NBAABACE press event in which it unveiled its new open-architecture approach to outfitting business aircraft with the best in-flight connectivity hardware, software and service for their needs. SD Xperience is focused on end-to-end solutions rather than an internet service, as explained by Satcom Direct's Jared Maynard. “There used to be only a few options. Now there are many, many more, both in equipment and services. And that increase has made it really, really complex. “We found the best way was to approach this on a client-by-client basis, focus on their mission and expectations, and help simplify the process. That's what the SD Xperience is all about,” Maynard explains. Essentially Satcom Direct works with the client to define the best mix of hardware, software, and connectivity services that meet their requirements, helping with the installation and configuration process, and providing the service and support once operational. “We have the largest selection of hardware, software and networks in the industry. We leverage this portfolio to build unique solutions that deliver the best user experiences possible,” Maynard explains. “We might make the router, Honeywell supplies the antenna, Inmarsat provides the network, and we tie it all together with our software… The result is a complete pre-flight to post-flight solution that generates one monthly bill for the whole package.” More information from www.satcomdirect.com ❙ www.AVBUYER.com

Cockpit Upgrades: The Value of Meeting Compliance Even in 2019, procrastination towards ADS-B compliance is apparent. Brian Wilson urges operators to act now to avoid even higher costs, upgrade capacity problems and aircraft grounding… istorians continue to debate whether Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin first coined the phrase “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”. Regardless of who said it first, representatives from both the FAA and EASA echoing the sentiment today. The deadline for ADS-B is fast approaching and the percentage of the business jet and turboprop fleet that still needs to perform the upgrade creates industry-wide challenges. By January 1, 2020, aircraft flying in the US must have ADS-B Out equipment installed and operational. The retrofit requirement in Europe comes into effect from June 7, 2020. Those who enjoy the challenge of arriving at

the airport 30 minutes before a flight might just find scheduling their upgrade to be a formidable task moving into 2019. Consider the following: • Only 52.5% of the business jet fleet is ADS-B compliant as of this writing. • 10% of the upgrades performed have failed regulatory testing. • Several major MROs warn customers they may not have capacity to support all of them by the deadline (many are booked well into 2019). • 94% of the installation facilities polled state that finding additional qualified technicians to perform the upgrades is proving difficult. • Installation prices are starting to increase, and equipment shortages are looming. www.AVBUYER.com

AVBUYER.com 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.

This dire situation led one senior avionics sales representative to claim “Shops will be dealing with ADS-B installations for more than a year after the deadline”. That means many aircraft could be grounded for an extended period. Yet, shop managers have been telling their customers to perform the ADS-B upgrades for the past 2-3 years only to be met with general procrastination.

Impact on the Used Aircraft Market

In 2018 the used aircraft market swung from a buyers’ market to a sellers’ market, and the available aircraft inventory slipped below the 10% benchmark. Some observers anticipate that fleet retirements could be as high as 20% of the existing fleet as a result of the ADS-B fallout. New aircraft will not fill the void. Deliveries of new aircraft in 2018 were flat (compared to 2017), and the forecast for 2019 shipments is for single digit growth at best. Used aircraft buyers must now sort through aircraft that are available for sale that are also ADS-B compliant. As one senior broker told AvBuyer, “ADS-B has had a dramatic effect on sales compared to a year ago”. If there are two similar aircraft on the market and one is not ADS-B compliant, the non-compliant aircraft is quickly eliminated, or the selling price is markedly discounted. “Due to the large number of aircraft still in need of the upgrade, time must be allocated to call around, get pricing and seek possible installation slots before considering a transaction,” the broker adds. www.AVBUYER.com

“Even cash buyers do not want to purchase an aircraft unless its ADS-B complaint or has a scheduled event to perform the upgrade.” Experienced lenders are taking a more proactive stance. They’re reviewing their existing client-base and some are reaching out to ensure their clients have ADS-B upgrades scheduled before the deadline. New clients seeking funding must provide proof that an aircraft they’re acquiring is already compliant or there’s an agreed plan and timeframe in place to meet the deadline. Valuation and appraisals companies play a key role in informing banks and financial institutions on the status of ADS-B compliance on all their transactions. “Lenders will not even consider financing an aircraft without proof of compliance with ADS-B,” offers Jason Zilberbrand, president and CTO at Vref. “I do not know of any recent transaction we worked on with a lender that didn’t focus on ADSB. Lenders do not want to take the chance of adding an asset to their portfolio that could be grounded come January 1, 2020.” The ADS-B adoption rate for aircraft 10-15 years old is noticeably lower than aircraft aged 10 years or less. This becomes even more pronounced for aircraft aged 15 years or more, and it is this category of aircraft that are more prone to an early retirement.

“Even though there is less than a year to go and avionics salespeople, estimators and managers are constantly calling their customers, procrastination is still evident.” for ADS-B compliance are about to feel the effect on their pocketbooks. Pricing for an ADS-B upgrade ranges between $50k-200k with an average price of $100k. However, speaking to a selection of MROs about possible price increases, one retorted that they had already done so. “The equipment manufacturers will raise hardware pricing in early 2019 and we will pass that onto the customer,” another explained. Documentation is getting costlier as OEMs have increased the pricing for STC certification packages and service bulletins. Labor is also getting more expensive as MROs seek to increase manpower, but are forced to pay higher wages and benefits to attract the experienced avionics technicians in a booming economy. One hiring manager told me that finding additional experienced personnel is proving “extremely difficult” and that labour rates will be adjusted accordingly. Even though there is less than a year to go and avionics salespeople, estimators and managers are constantly calling their customers, procrastination is still evident. 94  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Some operators who have an inspection scheduled for later in the year believe they will “just add ADS-B at that time”. Another common fallacy is that there’s time to spare, and that an operator “will start making some calls very soon” for quotations and available slots. Anybody delaying scheduling an upgrade at this time will be in for an unpleasant surprise with many MROs booked until late Q2 2019 and one major avionics satellite shop already booked at 85% capacity for all of 2019. Many will not take on standalone ADS-B upgrades unless they are for a highly tenured customer. The MROs are requiring – or at least giving preferential treatment – to customers who have maintenance inspections, paint or interior work scheduled in conjunction with the ADS-B upgrade. And even under those conditions, operators face being charged up to double time labour rates to get the work completed. One major MRO warns that standalone ADS-B upgrades could get pushed out to their satellite shops, potentially increasing travel time and costs to reposition an aircraft for the required work.

“Don’t be that aviation manager who is left explaining to the boss why they’ve missed the deadline, and why their airplane is grounded.” Though the avionics manager of another satellite shop confirmed they would undertake the work, he warned that operators “…should be prepared to pay additional labour costs,” and hope they would not encounter any equipment shortage issues. Downtime to perform the upgrade typically ranges from three-to-ten working days. For installations that require minimum labour and are mostly tied to hardware upgrades, operators can choose the exchange route. Performing the exchange option reduces downtime to a few days, but at a premium of 10-25% of the cost of the installation. Operators should schedule weeks in advance of their input date to ensure exchange boxes are available. For installations that are labour intensive, operators could save some costs by forgoing the exchange route on the hardware and instead have their boxes modified. Again, proper planning is required as in most cases the hardware is shipped back to the manufacturer for modification, which typically takes 5-7 business days. Bear in mind, however, that manpower resources at the 96  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

manufacturer could be limited, and turnaround time could increase.

Act Now

One prevailing attitude surfaced among the responses of all the people spoken with in the preparation of this article: There is little sympathy for operators who have waited until 2019 to act on the ADS-B mandate. Much time and resource has been invested over the last few years on educational luncheons, road shows, marketing and cold calling programs. The MROs have done as much as is in their power to do to help operators avoid increased costs and possible delays in complying. It’s time for operators to pick up the phone and get serious about ADS-B compliance. The deadline is not going to be extended and the amount of aircraft that still require the upgrade greatly exceeds capacity. Don’t be that aviation manager who is left explaining to the boss why they’ve missed the deadline, and why their airplane is grounded. Make the call today and ensure you have a slot in 2019. ❙ www.AVBUYER.com

How to Plan an Older Aircraft Panel Upgrade At a time when the newer used aircraft inventory is drying up, there are some common cockpit retrofits that those in the market for older business jets should consider. Mario Pierobon discusses these with two industry-leading MROs… ccording to Dave Coleman, aircraft sales and acquisitions representative at Duncan Aviation, the one thing that is clearly necessary to any buyer of a used aircraft is automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B). “This is a must for domestic US operations and for European operations, which also require traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) 7.1 and ADS-B. “For operating within the North Atlantic organized track system (NAT-OTS), there is also a requirement to have future air navigation systems (FANS) and controller–pilot dat alink communications (CPDLC), which is a secure satellite-based datalink messaging system like text messaging. “For aircraft going on a Part 135 certificate, Wi-Fi has also become a necessity. After that, it is down to a buyer’s preference”, Coleman says.

The Cost of Upgrade

Depending on the avionics system that is currently in the aircraft, there could be many hidden costs associated with just maintaining the avionics systems. “Depending where you are with your upgrade path, some aircraft systems will require several upgrades to meet upcoming ADS-B requirements,” offers Conrad Theisen, director of avionics sales at Elliott Aviation. www.AVBUYER.com

“These upgrades could cost an operator upwards of $200k or more. There are, however, options that an operator can take to meet the mandate that would not require upgraded equipme nt, such as the Garmin standalone remote-mount ADS-B solutions.” In addition, aging avionics systems could have parts that are expensive to maintain or have even become obsolete. “In many instances, older avionics systems can cost $30k or more per year just to maintain,” Theisen notes. “Older technology like cathode ray tube (CRT) displays, which are used for many older primary flight displays, are startin g to age out and the only long-term solution for many aircraft is to pursue retrofit programs like the Garmin G1000/G1000 NXi, G5000 or the Collins Pro Line 21. “Equipped with the right options, these systems provide ADS-B, wide area augmentation systems (WAAS) and localiser performance with vertical guidance (LPV), reduced vertical separation minima (RVSM), synthetic vision and more”, he continues. “The Gar min G1000 and G1000NXi for the King Air, for example, is one of the most popular retrofit programs in the history of avionics. With more than 500 complete installations, it replaces an entire avionics system, including the autopilot. It is safer, lighter and is more reliable. It is the

most advanced avionics system available for the King Air. “Similar to the G1000, the Garmin G5000 for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP (and soon to be Citation Excel/XLS) is a complete avionics retrofit program, replacing all existing avionics and the autopilot. It is the most advanced avionics system available to the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP and will soon be for Citation Excel/XLS too. “For the thousands of aircraft that are currently equipped with Pro Line 21, modernization allows for synthetic vision, IFIS, WAAS/LPV, ADS-B and more. For the Garmin G1000NXi, operators can expect to pay about $375k. G5000 upgrades can start around $400k and Pro Line 21 Modernization packages can range from $125k to $230k,” Theisen details.

Advantages and Benefits of Avionics Retrofit

There are multiple advantages and benefits to be derived from investing in retrofitting older aircraft. For US and European operations, regarding ADS-B one obvious pay-off is to remain airworthy. “For CPDLC and FANS, you can operate in the track system. Otherwise you must fly via the ‘blue spruce’ route, which overflies Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. While there is, of course, some safety benefit, traffic management is the primary b enefit for operators,” Coleman explains. “These systems improve the accuracy of an aircraft’s position, which allows more aircraft to operate along congested routes and airspace.” “For full cockpit retrofits like Garmin 100  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

A

G1000/G1000NXi and G5000, you get a lower cost of ownership,” adds Theisen, “WAAS/LPV, weight savings and options like synthetic vision, chart view (and more) are also big benefits.” There are other ways that upgraded equipment can improve an aircraft’s safety over what is already available in the cockpit of older aircraft. “Synthetic vision displays the outside conditions on your primary flight display (PFD),” Theisen explains. “This includes items like terrain and runways regardless of the outside conditions. This leads to better situational awareness, better terrain awareness and reduced pilot workload. LPV approaches lower decision altitudes on RNAV approaches to as low as 200 feet with half a mile of visibility, and this approach can get you into thousands of airports in the US and allows for an additional backup for ILS approaches.”

Overcoming the Cost Barrier

There are, of course, potential difficulties that operators may encounter when they seek to upgrade, including cost. “The cost can vary depending on the certification standard of an operator’s aircraft, the current equipment installed, and how long an operator wishes to keep the aircraft in service,” Coleman offers. “In some circumstances, the installation can be as much as 25% of the market value of the aircraft. In this case, you may wish to install only that which meets the minimum mandate requirements in order to get a few more years of use. For aircraft that still

“It is important that technical managers know how to make the case to senior management regarding the value and the worth of retrofitting an older aircraft.” have a long life ahead of them, however, a more robust and fully-integrated solution is likely the best solution.” It is important that technical managers know how to make the case to senior management regarding the value and the worth of retrofitting an older aircraft. “The purchase of a new 6-7 seat Light Jet can cost $8m-10m,” Theisen elaborates. “Over a fiveyear period, this aircraft will depreciate 40% or more in value. That’s $3.2m-4m. Over five years, operators using the aircraft for 1,000 hours will have an additional hourly cost of $3,200-4,000 (on top of fuel, hangar, insurance, maintenance, crew, etc.). “Conversely, the purchase of a used 6-7 seat Light Jet can cost $1m-3m. You could easily add $1m to that cost in upgrades of avionics, paint and interior. Over a five-year period, this aircraft will depreciate at a much lower rate. For example, the $2m aircraft (incorporating the upgrades) might be worth $1m after five years, or the $4m aircraft (incorporating the upgrades) would be worth $2m after the same time. “Effectively, the operator of the used aircraft reduced the depreciated asset cost by half. Both aircraft started out with the state-of-the-art avionics, new paint and new interior wit h warranty on those items. “While there is the argument that the new aircraft has some additional warranty for a period of time whereas the used jet does not, it is insufficient to 102  Vol 23 Issue 2 2019  AVBUYER MAGAZINE

make up the difference of new jet depreciation versus that of a used jet with new upgrades.” Coleman focusses on another type of cost to operators who do not upgrade their aircraft in specific areas. He highlights that it’s impo rtant to realize that the world’s air traffic management system is transitioning from a ‘first come, first served’ model to a ‘best equipped, best served’ model. “Not upgrading your aircraft to meet the demands of emerging airspace changes may result in longer and more circuitous routes, non-optimal operating altitudes, and not being able to utilize instrument approach procedures at many airports. All can increase costs, at best. At worst, they could result in you being unable to operate your aircraft where you want, when you want. “The case for value is made if the upgrade or retrofit is for mandated equipment. In the case of preferred equipment, however, it most likely boils down to the length of time you expect to own the aircraft. “If you expect to own the aircraft for several years, then you will get t he benefit of the preferred equipment, which can be tangibly off-set to the cost. The value and worth of retrofitting older aircraft is a complex financial and mission analysis that is very specific to each organization's requirements and priorities.” More information from www.duncanaviation.com or www.elliottaviation.com ❙ www.AVBUYER.com
