Editor’s

Welcome

Business Aviation Is Opportunity y first experiences in publishing were with Ziff Davis, Inc. The company’s CEO, William B. Ziff, Jr., was a rare combination of brilliant businessman and insightful intellectual. At age 23 he assumed leadership of Ziff Davis when it was grossing about $2m annually and operating in the red. He transformed the marginal company into a very profitable giant in magazine publishing— eventually selling his holdings over several years starting in 1987 to net more than $2bn! Magazine publishing was experiencing profound changes in 1953. Television was in the process of replacing the public’s love affair with communication channels such a Life, Colliers and the Saturday Evening Post, which were immensely popular magazines offering generalinterest content for decades leading up to the 1950s. Bill Ziff recognized the changing epic created by TV and led the charge toward special interest publications. Rather than lamenting change, he embraced the challenge and scored very big indeed. At a meeting of company department heads after particularly impressive year-end results were released, Bill advised his audience to measure leadership and success not by performance during good times. Anyone can look good when the marketplace is expanding and when just being in the game yields winning results. The true measure of business acumen is dealing with difficult market conditions. Today’s market for business aircraft could well be characterized as difficult. But with changing market conditions comes opportunity. Races are won in the curves. Business aircraft are effective business tools that provide transportation that is unique. Nothing replaces face-to-face interaction between clients and partners. The broker/dealer company that focuses on the benefits of Business Aviation has the potential to move ahead of its competition. Furthermore, customers want their use of Business Aviation to be efficient, safe and effective. Thus they need more than someone to sell them hardware—they want a trusted partner to provide guidance and oversight of their Business Aviation activities. The broker/dealer that offers consulting and management services truly understands the changing needs of today’s market. Believe in the benefits of Business Aviation. Proactively advocate those advantages. And

Business Aviation Market Summary Thoughts on Aircraft Prices Ahead of Q3 2016

What’s up with business aircraft prices, asks Rollie Vincent, Editor,

Market Indicators. Or perhaps more appropriately, "what’s down?" o into just about any business aircraft hangar or the office of an aircraft salesperson, financier, or appraiser these days and the hot topic near the top of everyone’s list is that of aircraft values. Prices for almost all new and pre-owned business aircraft models have continued to trend downwards as we pass the mid-point of the Northern Summer. What a summer it is turning out to be, beginning with the remarkable vote in the UK to leave the EU (followed by a flurry of highlevel resignations of political leaders on both sides of the aisle in the fractious debate). Brazil is scrambling to make final preparations before hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics (in their Winter, no less). Preparing for a sharp increase in business jet and visitor arrivals, it grapples with on-going political unrest and weak commodity prices. Stateside, all eyes seem glued to the latest news on what looks to be an historic Presidential election in November, with unknown consequences for the Business Aviation industry, government policy priorities,

and legislative direction. Meanwhile, outlooks for 2016 GDP growth in the five largest country markets for the world’s business jets (the US, Mexico, Brazil, Canada and the UK) have declined since the end of Q1 2016, with four of the five (Mexico being the exception) expected to grow by less than 2%. Brazil’s economic outlook amongst this group is by far the weakest, with the economy expected to actually shrink by -3.5% in 2016, despite the massive infrastructure investment and inbound travel associated with Rio 2016.

Optimism Wanes

The recently-completed JETNET iQ Q2 2016 Survey of business aircraft owners and operators suggests that the overall levels of optimism have slipped somewhat from Q1, based on the opinions of more than 500 respondents in 64 countries. Optimists continue to outnumber pessimists, but the gap has been shrinking between those who think we are past the low point in the current business cycle (43.6%) and those who think we have not reached the low point (30.5%) see Chart A. Aircraft Index see Page 153


MarketIndicators August16.qxp_Layout 1 19/07/2016 09:51 Page 2

CHART A Business Aircraft Owners & Operators Optimism (Region)

Regionally, respondents outside North America (USA and Canada) and Europe are the most pessimistic, although responses in Q2 2016 varied little by aircraft size category operated. In the market for business aircraft products and services, the basic laws of supply and demand that drive pricing and residual values are hard at work, 24/7/365. ‘For Sale’ inventory levels – measured as a percentage of the inservice fleet – have been slowly increasing since 2014, and are now approaching 12% overall for the business jet fleet. The highest levels of aircraft availability continue to be in the traditional Mid-Size Jet segment, and the lowest in Business Turboprops. Some aircraft OEMs have their hand on the throttle lever and are poised to slow down or pause their rates of production for certain models that are no longer in demand. These are difficult but probably necessary decisions to reset the rules of engagement with customers who have had the upper hand in this high stakes poker game, where the costs of unsold inventory (the notorious ‘whitetails’) fall squarely on the OEMs. As Hagerty Jet Group notes in a wellconsidered article that follows (p22), there can be tremendous value locked into pre-owned aircraft that are reliable, capable, and well supported by their manufacturer. Although new models will always have their appeal, there is much to be said for the quality and selection of pre-owned aircraft that can be purchased today (see the excellent Asset Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Insight article to this effect on p28). Like a company that buys back its stock when the market price doesn’t reflect its own perceptions of current and future values, many aircraft owners have elected to hold onto and upgrade their aircraft in this business cycle. JETNET’s iQ Surveys suggest that about half of the owner/operator community has deferred a new aircraft purchase decision in the past two years because of low residual values. Declining prices have characterized the pre-owned business aircraft market for several years, and with US bizjet utilization still more than 11% below pre-2008 crisis levels despite almost 30% fleet growth, this looks set to continue through the long, hot days of the summer of 2016.

‘Main Street’ Confidence

Although US stock markets continue to impress – at our publication deadline, the Dow Jones Industrial Index was up 18% since its low point in February 2016 - US corporate profitability has stalled. The latest results from the US Bureau of Economic Analysis indicate that annualized after-tax profits slipped almost 6% and gross private investment by almost 13%, year-overyear in Q1 2016. Although this is the most recently available information, profits have flattened over the past few years, despite the fact that the US economy has been growing slowly but steadily. The confidence level of corporate purchasing managers in the United States, a widely watched indicator of business health, was at 53.2 in June 2016, up from 48.2 in  www.AVBUYER.com

“Declining prices have characterized the pre-owned business aircraft market for several years, and... this looks set to continue through the long, hot days of the summer of 2016.”

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS January but flat year-over-year. The University of Michigan’s US consumer sentiment index, another key indicator of Main Street confidence, was at 89.5 in July 2016, down from 92.0 in January and from 93.1 year-over-year. In other words, the flat-as-Kansas market we discussed in last month’s column remains pretty flat. Generally speaking, companies with the ability to purchase a business aircraft appear to be carefully considering their options. For those already operating an aircraft and needing another, the rationale for purchasing a new asset must be compelling – for example, if the new aircraft offers a level of performance or mission capability that cannot be achieved with a current aircraft. The decision to purchase or not can be difficult for even the most highperforming of today’s new aircraft offerings, especially given the fact that many companies and UHNWIs have opted to fly fewer long-range missions with the slowdown in emerging markets. For companies that simply need more lift due to increased levels of business activity, we understand that many are (wisely) looking at pre-owned aircraft as an interesting, yet highly capable alternative investment that is, in some cases, far less capital intensive. As always, jet cards, fractional and charter lift solutions, especially from trusted players with a heritage of providing superior service levels, can be very attractive options to a purchase, enabling the customer to keep their powder keg of capital dry for other more fundamental battles.

Exceptionally High Value

In any event, pre-owned aircraft buyers will find much to drool over in the

pages in this magazine (note, for those who prefer not to drool on their magazine, AvBuyer offers an excellent on-line version). Our view is that inventory quality, availability and valuefor-the-dollar are at exceptionally high levels, and should remain so, at least for the time being. Nevertheless, and over the next several quarters, we do expect these battle lines to begin shifting back towards the other side of the bargaining table, as OEMs make some hard calls about lowering production rates and exiting certain model lines. Aircraft that are delivering at rates of 1.5 units per month or less are surely on their CFO’s high watch for cutbacks (and if they aren’t already, they probably should be). Although the production tools and R&D may have been written off long ago, enabling the product line to be profitable on paper at low output rates, there is a real cost – and if nothing else an opportunity cost - of consuming floor space, personnel and available resources for a low-volume model. For an OEMs leadership team, these can be tough, but necessary, calls – ultimately reflecting the fact that there are simply too many models chasing too few customers across the industry, resulting in soft prices and declining residual values. For those considering purchasing one of the many high-quality preowned aircraft that are available today, it would be wise to remember the famous words of American game show host and part-time philosopher Bob Barker: “Ladies and Gentlemen - what are you waiting for (if) The Price is Right?” MI www.rollandvincent.com

BizAv Activity Europe There were 81,436 Business Aviation departures in Europe in June 2016, notes WingX, representing a -1% YOY decline in activity. The decline came from fewer Turboprop and Piston flights. Jet activity increased 1%, with a significant 4% increase in business jet AOC activity... The main growth impetus this month came from France where activity was up 4% YOY. After six months of 2016, Business Aviation activity in France was up 1.3%, equivalent to 173 additional flights per month, compared to 2015. UK was also up 1.3% in 2016. Growth in Spain included a gain of more than 5% in AOC activity, which was also slightly up in Italy and Switzerland but declined -11% in Germany. Private flight activity (50% of all flights this month) was down -2.5%, and declined across all the main European markets except Sweden and Norway. Private flights have fallen in seven of the last 12 months, in contrast to AOC which has declined in just two months since July 2015. Flight activity within Western Europe sustained slight growth, but continued to weaken in the South and East, and this month fell back heavily from North America, North Africa and Middle East. Arrivals in Europe from Russia were down -14% YOY. Five out of nine business jet segments grew in activity this month, with the largest gains in the Super Mid-Size and VLJ segments. Both Light and Super Light segments were also ahead. Mid-Size and Heavy Jet activity continued to erode. Private flights declined -3%, -8% and -25% respectively for Ultra-Long-Range, Heavy and Mid-Size jets. VLJ Private flights were up 6%, and VLJ Charter flights gained 20% YOY, with the Citation Mustang the strongest performer. “At the halfway point this year, Business Aviation activity is slightly trailing last year’s trend, which is disappointing,” summarized WingX managing director Richard Koe. “However, this belies some solid recovery in business jet activity, particularly in AOC flights... We will have to see over the next few months whether the Brexit vote at the end of June sets back the UK’s contribution to the Eurozone’s recovery.” MI www.wingx-advance.com

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

A G550 Owner’s Replacement Dilemma Prior to 2008, it was common for a Gulfstream to retain nearly 100% of its value or better, notes Hagerty Jet Group in its Q2 2016 Gulfstream Quarterly Market Update. Today, residual values are declining at historic rates, and that situation is effecting how and when aircraft owners are replacing their business jets… Global demand in 2008 was so strong that the backlog for a new G550 was greater than four-years. Therefore, owners became accustomed to replacing their aircraft every few years and actually making sizeable profits when selling their used ones. This made a compelling argument to always have the newest airplane ordered for purchase. Ten years ago, a G550 buyer could sell a position for a 10% profit. Today, they’re losing 10% at delivery and arguably another 10% within the first year of ownership. Back in 2008, Gulfstream was very successful securing orders for new G650s from G550 owners who saw the G650 as the ultimate business jet. But for those who did not take advantage of introductory pricing, it’s difficult to justify the additional investment when G550 residual values have been hit so hard. Owners and operators love the G550. It’s a safe, reliable, efficient and proven aircraft with incredible range up to 6,750nm at Mach 0.80. Gulfstream has delivered over 540 units since 2003, and apart from the continually improving interiors and systems, the airplane is virtually the same product today as it was 13-years ago.

The True Cost to Upgrade

Assume a G550 owner bought his airplane new in 2010 for $50m. That same airplane is now worth around $30m (approximately 40% less than paid 6-years ago). The owner is happy with the G550, but they typically buy new airplanes every 5-7 years. Gulfstream would happily sell a new G650ER that delivers in 2019 for around $70m (with options and escalation). By the time it delivers, the used G550 will be worth $25M or less. Therefore, the net replacement cost to upgrade to a new G650ER is nearly $45m. Many G550 owners struggle to justify how the improvements of a new G650ER can really be worth $45m to fly the same trips that their G550 already covers safely and reliably. Moving forward, G550 owners will also consider the new G500/G600 models as viable choices. The technological improvements and design philosophy of the G500 and G600 are going to set new operating and performance standards in the industry. However, when the next available G500 delivers in 2019, the cost of replacing a nine-year-old G550 with a new G500 will be at least $25m. The G500 offers a slightly wider cabin than a G550 by adding seven inches, but is virtually the same overall cabin volume. The G500 flies faster at high-speed cruise, but offers significantly less range at 5,000nm. Buyers with longer range requirements may need to spend $10m more and get the 6,200nm range of the G600 (550nm less range than the G550). This leaves G550 owners wondering why they should spend 22

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

twice as much as their current airplane’s value to upgrade to a newer model that doesn’t fly as far as their G550, and offers only a marginally improved cabin experience. Is it worth doubling the price for a jet that flies at a higher speed simply because the new avionics make the pilot’s job easier? Yes, it’s nice to get there faster, but is the marginal time-saving worth $35m…?

What’s a Loyal Gulfstream Owner to Do?

The current G550 owner will either keep their existing G550 longer or turn to the pre-owned G650 market where prices have dropped by $10m in just the past few months. Once the price for a pre-owned G650 drop to $50m and below, the delta between the G550 and G650 is closer to $20m making a compelling argument to choose a pre-owned G650 as an upgrade. With 180 G650 units now in service and 19 pre-owned airplanes currently ‘For Sale’, it’s time for G550 owners to start planning a G650 upgrade sooner than later. MI www.hagertyjetgroup.com

Used Inventory Continues To Grow

From a report in AIN Online the latest UBS Business Jet update indicates the inventory of used business jets on the market continues to creep up, with the number of available Small and Mid-Size jets beginning to close the gap with Large aircraft... UBS notes that the available inventory of business jets rose by a percentage point in May, approaching 11.5% of the installed base. However, it is still below the historical average of 13%. The inventory of young aircraft (those from zero to 10 years old) was up 2%, while ‘very young’ aircraft (age zero to five years old) grew by 4% in May. Over the past year, the very young

inventory has inched up 3% while the 6-10 year-old segment has jumped 21%. The 6-10 year-old category has logged upticks in nine of the last 11 months, “and on an absolute basis is at an all-time high,” UBS noted. Inventories for Small and Mid-Size aircraft have swelled to 10% and 11% of the installed base from 8% and 9% a year ago. The number of large aircraft ‘For Sale’ has stabilized at 12%. “We ultimately see the market improving on pent-up corporate replacement demand in North America,” UBS told investors. MI www.ubs.com

Promising Prospects for Swiss BizAv Switzerland’s Business Aviation industry is an important economic sector that seems set for further growth, so long as capacity and regulatory issues do not stifle its potential, according to industry players gathered for discussions in Bern… Switzerland is the seat for many worldclass multinationals and financial institutions. BizAv accounts for over 17,000 direct and indirect jobs in the country translating into almost €1bn in labour compensation, some €1.3bn in GVA, and over €3.7bn in total output. "Business Aviation has an image issue," commented Hans-Ueli Vogt, Member of the Swiss National Council and Chairman of the Parliamentary Group for Aviation. "It's perceived to be elitist and luxurious. The sector must fix this image and demonstrate that, in fact, it ultimately serves the public interest by increasing mobility, which consequently increases the competitiveness of a geographical area." MI www.ebaa.org

Summer Events Boost European Flying New research from Avinode has revealed that sporting and cultural events taking place in Europe this summer are providing a welcome boost to Business Aviation figures, despite an overall -1% decline in flight activity compared with 2015. Oliver King, MD, Avinode, commented, “This summer, Europe has plenty of draws for visitors, with France being one of the most popular destinations. Data from the Avinode Marketplace shows there were 10 times as many requests for flights to Nice at the end of May 2016 compared with the rest of the year, primarily driven by the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, the French Open and the Cannes Film Festival. "Business jet charter requests also surged on June 10-11, 2016 in the 10 24

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

French host cities of the UEFA Euro 2016 football games. There was a boom in Marseille with 2,600 requests for those two days – a 100-fold increase compared with the same period in 2015. Of those requests, approximately 40% were from Russia..." King concluded, "Europe continues to be a leisure market driven by the preferences of high net worth individuals and a tradition of a long summer break. This is in contrast to the USA where corporate use of business jets lessens the impact of holiday peaks, and means the industry is shaped more by economic and political events, such as the 2016 Presidential Election."

Increased Indian Demand for Business Aviation?

Aircraft Values & Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition An Asset Insight market analysis conducted on June 30, 2016 covered 91 fixed-wing models, and 1,965 aircraft listed for sale, revealing the following… After a slight Q1 contraction, spreads between Ask Prices and Transaction Values widened again during Q2 due to sustained erosion in values. The number of Business Jet Aircraft transactions was sharply lower during the first half of 2016, compared to the same 2015 timeframe. •

• •

• Global Jet Capital, a leading provider of financing solutions for Large-Cabin, Long-Range business jets, expects demand for Business Aviation in India to increase as a result of the country’s strong economic growth… New research from Global Jet Capital reveals that over the last decade (2006-15), 70 Mid-Size to Heavy business jets were delivered to India, with a combined value of around $3.5bn. The company says these aircraft typically cost between $25m$75m each. Up to 80% of the funding used to purchase these is sourced through external financing. Consisting of a greater proportion of Mid-Sized to Heavy jets than the global average, 44% of the Indian fleet is classed as Mid-Sized to Heavy, indicating that demand for finance from Indian buyers is likely to be greater than from other regions. Global Jet Capital, which recently completed the purchase of the aircraft lease and loan portfolio of GE Capital Corporate Aircraft in the Americas representing approximately $2.5bn of net assets, has around $1bn to lend to clients to purchase relevant business aircraft in India and elsewhere around the world. Simon Davies, VP, Sales (India) at Global Jet Capital says, “For the fiscal year 2015-2016, India’s GDP growth was around 7.6%, and some market commentators are predicting that growth will gain momentum in 2016-2017…Demand for Business Aviation is closely correlated to economic growth so we believe long-term, India will see a significant increase in demand for business jets. “This is already a very attractive market for us, and we expect it to become even more appealing in the coming years.” MI www.globaljetcapital.com

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

Asset Quality reached an all-time high level, while the analysed fleet’s Maintenance Exposure value matched the tracked fleet’s historical average. Quality Rating: The Asset Insight Quality Rating was virtually unchanged, rising to 5.377 from May’s 5.349, on Asset Insight’s scale of -2.5 to 10. Maintenance Exposure: Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated maintenance financial exposure) worsened 1.3% over May, increasing $19k to $1.46m from $1.44m. By aircraft sector, the figures were as follows: •

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

Large Jets: After evidencing some stability between Ask Price and actual Transaction Value during Q1, values are once again moving downward, pushing spreads sharply apart in Q2. Medium Jets: Values posted a slight contraction between Ask and Transaction price spreads, as they did during Q1. Small Jets: Values widened slightly between Ask and Transaction figures. However, demand is no longer outpacing supply within this sector, so Asset Insight anticipates this gap to narrow in the future. Turboprops: Values remained consistent. Should inventory continue to build, a slight increase in the spread between Ask and Transaction pricing will be likely.

www.AVBUYER.com

Large Jets: ‘Outstanding’ and record high asset quality (consistently the best among all groups) at 5.565, a 4.9 AI2 basis point improvement over last month; Maintenance Exposure worsened slightly, increasing from $3.061m to $3.096m. Medium Jets: ‘Excellent’ asset quality at 5.358 (versus last month’s 5.389), earning the group third place among the four sectors; Maintenance Exposure worsened by $30k, increasing to $1.281m from $1.251m. Small Jets: Retaining second place, this category had an ‘Excellent’ asset quality rating at 5.433, versus last month’s 5.393. Maintenance Exposure worsened by $48k, increasing to $769k versus last month’s $721k. Turboprops: ‘Very Good’ asset quality at 5.074, versus May’s 5.016 rating; Maintenance Exposure also improved, falling $15k to $552k – a figure better than the group’s $561k 12-month average. Aircraft Index see Page 153


MarketIndicators August16.qxp_Layout 1 19/07/2016 09:59 Page 7

Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio Our tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio (an aircraft’s Maintenance Exposure divided by its Ask Price) worsened last month, increasing to 54.0% (equalling the tracked fleet’s 12-month average) from 52.9%, with all but Turboprops contributing to the increase. Higher Maintenance Exposure figures for all but the Turboprop sector, and a record low average Ask Price were the primary drivers. We consider any ETP Ratio over 40% to represent excessive Exposure in relation to Ask Price, and the Ratio has been above 50% for the past eighteen months. •

Table A

Large Jets: ETP Ratio (the best among the four groups) has been steadily worsening since February, increasing this past month to 38.3% from 37.4%. Ask Price fell to $14.22m from $14.89m – a 4.5% reduction and another 12-month low figure. The sector continues to offer great value for Buyers, and they are likely to seize on this unusual mix of high quality and low values, leading to the best assets trading quickly – assuming that Sellers are willing to accept current/lower offer prices. Medium Jets: ETP Ratio degraded, increasing to 57.7% from 55.2%, registering worse than the group’s 12-month 55.2% average. Ask Price decreased another 2.3% and, at $3.47m, is only $50k above the group’s 12-month low figure. Many quality assets are available and, by virtue of current prices, high quality assets should provide good value for Buyers. Small Jets: ETP Ratio worsened for the fourth consecutive month, increasing to 69.3% from March’s 12-month low of 66.3%. Ask Price also receded, but at $2.19m are only slightly lower than the group’s 12-month peak number of $2.20m, and $2.21m record high. In a previous report Asset Insight advised that demand for a number of popular models might be abating, based on some widening between Ask and Transaction pricing. Asset Insight now believes demand is no longer outpacing supply within this sector, so anticipates this pricing gap will narrow. Turboprops: Both the ETP Ratio and Ask Price improved 2.9% and 3.0%, respectively. The ETP Ratio – which continues to be second best among all sectors – improved to 46.1% from last month’s 47.5%, while Ask Price fell another 3.0% to another 12-month low of $1.53m. Turboprop values have remained within a narrow band during the past year and have regularly posted the second-best ETP Ratio among the four sectors. With prices at a 12-month low, values are about as good as one should expect, based on current market dynamics.

Table B

Market Summary

Some Sellers clearly have assets of exceptional quality listed for sale. Advantage however continues to be on the side of Buyers who, as Asset Insight has consistently stated, have an opportunity to acquire aircraft in exceptional maintenance condition for some of the lowest prices its research has recorded.

Aging Business Aircraft Inventories: So, When Do Older Business Aircraft Really Retire…?

In this month’s JETNET >>KNOW MORE analysis, Mike Chase and Marj Rose review and compare the retired business jet fleet.

iscussion of aircraft retirements may not be as exciting as debating the merits of a star athlete’s last game, but a review of retirement data can offer insight on how the business aircraft fleet ages, how it compares in this same respect to commercial aircraft and ultimately how retirements drive the demand for future business aircraft sales. Thus we will consider the details of business aircraft retirements in this month’s column. For the purposes of this analysis, ‘retired aircraft’ includes those no longer in use having been written-off, parted out, put on display, used for training or other reasons that prevent them from flying. First, let’s look at the total fleet of aircraft flying today and the percentage, by type, that is retired. Of particular interest in Table A (left) is the fact that ‘Jet Airliners’ show more than two-times the percentage of ‘fleet retirement’ (21.8%) than ‘Business Jets’ (10%).

D

Fleet Retirements in 2015

Table B (left), meanwhile, provides a snapshot of retirements in 2015. There were over 1,000 aircraft and helicopters retired last year, and a high percentage of those also were Jet Airliners (654 retirements). Business Jet and Turbine Helicopter retirements were almost equal (120 versus 124, respectively). Business Turboprop and Commercial Turboprop were level with 75 retirements each. Each group has the age-range in which the most retirements took place during 2015 (highlighted in yellow). Noteworthy is that while 81% of Jet Airliners are retired by 30 years of age, at that same life cycle point fully 78% of Business Jets remain in operation. The most obvious reason for this substantial difference is the fact that Jet Airliners fly considerably more hours than most Business Jets, thus it follows that they would reach an  34

end-of-life threshold (in respect to airframe hours) before Business Jets. Across all segments, the most retirements occurred (39%) between age 21-30.

Business Jet Fleet Retirements (2004-2015)

In Table C (right) we examine the 12 years before, during and after the recession. Note the pronounced change of behavior by bizjet operators before, versus after the recession: in the four years leading up to the recession (2004-2007) 383 jets were retired, whereas in the four immediately after the recession years (2010 to 2013) 632 jets were retired – representing an increase of 167%. By age-range during the entire period, 82% of all Business Jet retirements occurred in aircraft aged 31-50, as highlighted in yellow.

Business Jet Fleet (Cumulative Totals)

A few years ago, we looked into the Business Jet fleet retirement data to compare 2013 retirement numbers to pre-recession levels. This analysis gave us a comparison with the production rates of new business jets. The retirement percentage was higher in 2013 than over the previous 10 years. Depicted in Table D (right), note that the total number of retired business jets per year has continued to increase over the twelve-year period, from 1,123 to 2,339. Retired business jets represent 10% of today’s total fleet. The Compounded Average Growth Rate (CAGR) for retired business jets over the past twelve years is 6.3%. During this same period the total Business Jet fleet grew from 14,363 to 23,440 (+9,077 units). The CAGR is 4.2% over this twelve-year period.

Wholly-Owned Business Jet Fleet (by Age & Region)

Table E (right) offers a look at the whollyowned Business Jet fleet in operation, by continent, to reveal where the majority of the aging fleet is based. Asia (59%) and Europe (53%) have the highest proportions of Business Jets age 1 to 10 years in their fleets. Several years ago many countries, especially within emerging markets, began proactively instituting limitations and regulations that prevented the importation of older, noisier, Business Jets into their countries. Many of these countries now boast a larger percentage of younger jets (1-10 year-old) than the 32% in North America’s fleet.

Summary

Business Jets continue to have the lowest percentage of retired aircraft among all aircraft types. Since the useful age of an aircraft has 36

Q2 Used Aircraft Market Summary

Slow Sales, or More Sellers? With an increase in Small and Mid-Size Jets on the used aircraft sales markets, Dave Higdon talks to the dealers and brokers to find out what could be driving the slow-down in sales during Q2 2016…

he West Coast broker sighed. “Oh, it's just you…I was hoping you'd be the prospect who's looked at our client’s airplane twice and hasn't yet made me an offer.” “So, are things slowing down a little,” I enquired. “Slowing down? We're somewhere above idle speed, but nowhere near the posted speed limit,” he summarized. “The pre-owned business jet market went up a full point during May and shows no signs of hitting a plateau. It's getting a little uncomfortable. I'm still waiting on my monthly tracking subscriptions to

report, but at the latest recorded pace we'll be at or above the historic average by Labor Day.” The West Coast broker’s sentiments told a broader story of used jet dealers and brokers nationwide; a tale repeated again and again across the market.

The Inventory Growth Issue

A breakdown of the market shows gaps changing between the available fleet of Small, Mid-Size and Large-Cabin Jets. The most notable growth in unsold, available aircraft (and increasing fleet ‘For Sale’) is among the Small and Mid-Size Jet segments.

comparisons, those numbers were 8% and 9% at this point last year. Of the Large-Cabin Jet fleet ‘For Sale’, the percentage plateaued at 12%, a welcome bit of stability. Of course, with a growing pool of available aircraft comes t he old supply and demand effect...

Softening Market, Softening Prices

Organizations supplying market forecasts have been engaged in a recent trend of backtracking – or ‘scaling down’ some of their predictions. Bombardier, for example, recently dialed back its business jet sales expectations, while JETNET revised its decadelong outlook for quarterly business jet sales. The new outlook follows five prior quarterly downgrades owing to a “tremendously oversupplied” market. That oversupply may well continue, since forecasts for new jet deliveries, while down, are still hovering above 650. And most of those new jets will go to operators who, in turn, need to shed an aircraft, and includes some of the fractional orders that help to buoy new aircraft sales. According to JETNET, the pool of available aircraft already sits at around 3,800 business jets. Buyers, meantime, continue to move slower than the trickle of pre-owned jets coming onto the market. Nonetheless, with new aircraft deliveries exceeding old aircraft retirements the global fleet continues to grow generally. Here in the US, operators report flying fewer cycles but about the same average stage length, tracking a trend of somewhat less business travel in general by American corporations until the past couple of months. Business flying has edged up in Europe (where operators are showing more interest in upgrading), but is down in Asia and India.

The Background

The Large-Cabin Jet segment is static after seeing its previous market advantage progressively slip away. “If you've been waiting on a buyer's deal on a Light Jet,” said a broker from the Southwest, “your options continue to grow as the inventory of ‘For Sale’ pre-owned business jets continues to increase.” UBS’ May Business Jet Update revealed a gain in the inventory of business jets ‘For Sale’, up to a bout 11.4% of the fleet. That’s up a full percentage point in May, and while the figure still falls short of the historical 13% average, it's a figure populated by more relatively new jets. The so-called ‘very young inventory’ edged up by 3%, a fraction of the 21% jump in aircraft aged six to 10 years old. That six-to10 year old segment grew steadily in recent months, posting nine increases in the most- recent 11 months. That segment is now at an ‘all-time high’ on an absolute basis. Age aside, pre-owned inventories grew to 10% of the Small Jet fleet and 11% for Mid-Size Jets. For Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

The growth in business aircraft ‘For Sale’ contrasts with utilization averages that have seen a small upswing in recent months. Increased flying in May offset an unexpected drop in April; and June’s numbers looked to be up slightly, though some observers pegged them as flat compared to May. With gains earlier in the year, a couple of down or flat months, and fuel prices once again dropping for summer flying, most observers expect business flying numbers for 2016 to measurably exceed the levels of 2015. And that ‘good news’ is expected across the spectrum. Stock markets remain solid despite the shoc kwave emanating from the UK ‘Brexit’ vote to leave the EU. Reflexive actions and automatic trading sent stocks tumbling by nearly 900 points on Wall Street's Dow Jones Industrial Index, with other markets similarly plunging, but by the start of Independence Day weekend that began on July 1, all those stricken indexes had recovered to their pre-Brexit levels. www.AVBUYER.com

“So if buyers enjoy a large variety of choice, show good financial ratings and have access to affordable loans for buying, what's holding back sales at this time?”

In truth, no brokers or dealers expected any lasting, long-term impact to be felt anytime soon. “Transactions of aircraft across international lines remain an area of activity subject to currency fluctuations,” a Pacific Coast international broker conceded. “The ‘dance’ last month seemed to favor the dollar, which may slow some buyers for the short term, but it could make things a little easier for those looking to import from overseas. The currency won't be the volatile element some people fear. We're still open trading partners with the UK and Europe, and will be for a long time to come.”

The Capital Question

Even aircraft finance options have evolved to improve access to qualified borrowers with good credit or excellent collateral. With the United States' Federal Reserve keeping interest rates low and with the number of aircraft available high, would-be borrowers enjoy the broadest access to affordable capital since before 2007, noted several lenders. Lenders continue to impose strictures that greatly narrow their exposure, mostly by limiting new additions in their loan portfolios to younger aircraft – that is, aircraft no older than 10 years since first delivery. What has changed is the growing availability of capital for aircraft older than 20 – with more than ample resources available to borrow at a competitive rate for aircraft between 10-25 years of age. In fact, some of today's busiest lenders focus mostly on aircraft older than 10 years, using their own capital resources to underwrite the loans they make. So if buyers enjoy a large variety of choice, show good financial ratings and have access to affordable loans for buying, what's holding back sales at this time?

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

A ‘Human-Factors’ Dilemma

“If you forced me to pick a word for this sluggish business it would have to be 'uncertainties' – that's what holds up a big share of our business opportunities right now,” explained the Pacific Coast international broker. “Don't get me wrong, the country's economy points in the right direction right now - even if it's not exactly robust, it's gaining. But look around. Other elements influencing business and people aren't exactly relaxed.” Others made similar observations. Their main worry? The political climate. A presidential election year, global insecurity, continued turmoil in the Middle East, tensions over refugees in Europe, and people stoking similar fears in the US. Those uncertainties act like a brake on spending for things like business aircraft, even when the company has funds to spend on launching new businesses or expanding an old one, a financial consultant explained. “These are people comfortable with funding a new restaurant (as risky as those are) but hesitant to invest in a transportation tool that would make them and their businesses more productive and, in turn, more profitable.” “The only thing holding strong right now is the stock market – and that's high enough now to prompt worries about a 'correction', or worse,” offered a Northeast dealer. “Plenty of people are using Business Aviation, and for all the leastattractive reasons – safety and security. They fly privately out of paranoia, not convenience or productivity. “It's not logic. It is emotion,” the financial consultant continued. “And when you can afford to indulge your emotions – without hurting your bottom line – you indulge your emotions. Hopefully, after this interminably long [political] campaign, people will come back to thinking sensibly. So check back with me in December.” T

Asset Management

The Key to Your Aircraft’s Value (Part 2 of 3) Last month, David Wyndham addressed Asset Management at a high level, focusing on utilization, finance and maintenance. This month he dives a little deeper into the factors that fundamentally influence the value of a company aircraft. business aircraft’s value depends upon the owner’s expectations. Is the asset acquired solely as a means of postponing (or avoiding) taxes, or possibly as an investment to be resold for a profit as market conditions change? Or is the aircraft purchased to provide meaningful transportation that enables a company to prosper? Value varies with time due to changing business opportunities and company strategies. In order to assess the value of a company aircraft, managers of flight departments need to understand the objectives of the companies and the executives they serve. If the company needs an effective means for placing the right employee in the right place at the right time, the aircraft’s value is related to the availability and delivery of efficient transportation. The cyclical ups and downs of the resale market can

be handled more successfully when companies are able to extract utility from their business aircraft, therefore biding their time when prices are down. It is essential, therefore, that the Aviation Department Manager understands the company’s overall expectations. An aircraft’s marketability at the time of sale often is impacted by the make and model initially acquired. For example, having the company aircraft available 24/7 to the CEO will run counter to its use as a shuttle. Optics, such as ‘ramp presence’, also may impact aircraft selection and thus the value of the asset if and when it is sold. The CFO of a client supported the acquisition of a global business jet for the company, but he was concerned about the aircraft appearing too big and too flashy. He said he didn’t want a ‘royal barge’ out on the ramp. Another client, which focused on servicing the US Government, was Aircraft Index see Page 153

so concerned about their customer’s attitudes toward image that they purchased an aircraft that was too small for their mission. That client was willing to make a fuel stop on many trips in order to arrive in an economical-looking aircraft. When aircraft acquisition is influenced by factors other than providing effective transportation, value at the time of sale may suffer.

Other Factors

Since factors affecting safety, such as how the aircraft is maintained, flown and secured, are within the purview of the aviation department, a business aircraft provides value to companies that seek maximum control over the safety and well-being of its employees who travel extensively. An operator’s expectations of a high level of safety should be addressed with specific guidance for aircraft availability and dispatch, pilot and mechanic training, crew rest, duty days, mandatory time-off, or other safety-related restrictions. There are many corporations operating not-for-hire (i.e., in accordance with FAA Part 91) that insist on following the more restrictive regulations of commercial (‘for hire’) operators. Companies owning a business aircraft can specify how they want their Flight Department to fulfill the travel needs of employees and their clients, and that authority has value. There are other entities that have a stake in the “value” of your company’s aircraft, however. Perhaps a bank, financing or leasing company maintains legal ownership of the corporation’s business aircraft. The bank, as part of their lease or loan, usually specifies acceptable use of the aircraft. Your insurance carrier may also have use restrictions. Such provisions may curtail the aircraft’s operation, or limit the aircraft from flying into high-risk nations. Such conditions are normally addressed at the outset of the acquisition, and in the case of insurance, can be adjusted or changed if necessary. The wise Aviation Department Manager reviews such restrictions to assure that they have minimal, if any, impact on the aircraft’s value as a business tool. In every nation there is a national aircraft 44

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

regulatory authority, such as the US Federal Aviation Administration, that specifies the compliance and operational rules for aircraft. Regulatory compliance requires the operator to maintain accurate and thorough records and documentation for the aircraft. With respect to taxes, there may be national, state or even local tax authorities with an interest in your aircraft (whether for sales tax, use tax, property tax or other fees). Again, proper and detailed records are required. Failure to maintain those required records has an impact on aircraft value at the time of sale. With respect to the FAA, lack of proper documentation can turn a multi-million dollar asset into a multi-million dollar liability if the maintenance records are not correct. No matter the apparent condition of the aircraft, if the proper documentation and sign-offs are not available, the aircraft is not airworthy, and thus very difficult to sell. The company CFO or other financial managers have a clear financial stake in the firm’s business aircraft, not only in representing the costs to the corporation, but in managing the cash flow and accurately monitoring the value of the aircraft. They need correct operating costs, tax bills, finance statements, and due dates for aircraft replacement items as they relate to other financial events within the corporation. The Aviation Department Manager and staff also have an interest the aircraft as an asset. To meet that obligation, they must monitor and maintain the physical condition of the aircraft. They also are required to document compliance with all applicable regulations regarding the aircraft. Overall, the Aviation Department Manager must ensure that the company aircraft meets the transportation needs of the corporation. Failure to fulfill those duties diminishes the value of the company aircraft when the time comes to sell the equipment or trade up to a newer model. T

What’s the Impact of Damage History on Aircraft Value?

Using the criteria set forth by the National Aircraft Appraisal Association (NAAA), Certified Appraiser Jeremy Cox discusses the ramification of damage history on his assessment of aircraft evaluation… business aircraft can experience damage ranging from a simple dent resulting from hangar rash to a major mishap requiring extensive restoration. Some repairs require only replacement of specific components while others necessitate extensive labor and possible engineering expertise to make the aircraft airworthy again. Jeremy Cox is Vice President at JetBrokers, Inc, a Thus we will start this examination of the National Aircraft Apprais- relationship between damage and value with ers Association (NAAA) definitions and descriptions.

A

history section of the report should state that no deduction is required for this category of damage and that the entry is informational only.

Non-Deductible Damage: This category is used when a removable item, such as a control surface, was replaced due to an incident but there was no other damage. In other words, all of the damage has been removed from the aircraft and there is no reason to make a deduction in its value. Nevertheless, such a situation is still considered ‘damage history’ and should be reported and documented in the aircraft’s logbooks. The damage

Minor Damage: Ostensibly this category includes minor damage or heavy wear to leading edges of the wing, wing-tip, cowling etc. that have been repaired in a manner consistent with manufacturer’s recommended procedures. No major structural components were involved. For example, a gear up landing where only skin changes were made and no structural damage occurred could be considered here. 

Superficial Damage: This category includes slight ‘dings’ generally associated with hangar rash, etc. that have been repaired by replacing damaged areas with new/used serviceable components (wing-tip caps, wheel pants, plastic etc.). Superficial damage may also include a skin change where, for example, an outer rib was slightly bent and repaired or replaced.

Moderate Damage: Extensive damage to components not affecting major structural components fall within this category. Major Damage: This category encompasses major structural component damage that is replaced with new/used serviceable components and repaired in accordance with manufacturer recommended procedures, (i.e. wing spar, firewall & engine mounts etc.). Extensive Major Damage: Major structural components that have been extensively damaged but repaired in accordance with manufacturers recommended procedures are listed in this category.

The Subjectivity of ‘Damage’

Damage history is very subjective. I have seen some MROs as well as individual mechanics try to gloss over, in their logbook entry, just how extensive the repairs were that they performed on an aircraft. In fact, it is actually acceptable per FAR 145 for a Repair Station to merely quote a WorkOrder Reference Number in their logbook entry and after 24 months have elapsed, the work order file that was referenced can be discarded. As an appraiser, if I can’t understand and rationalize damage history because of a cryptic logbook entry or an entry with brevity, I will rate the damage higher by default. The NAAA has taught me, “What you think is minor damage, someone else might call moderate and a third party might call superficial. That is why we (NAAA) have grading instructions for damage history.”

How Price Guides Handle ‘Damage’

The two major aircraft value sources - Vref and Aircraft Bluebook - each try to offer loose guidance on aircraft damage. The Damage Table from the Vref Guide diminishes the value reduction over time because the repair work becomes less questionable as more hours are put on the aircraft post-repair. The Aircraft Bluebook User’s Handbook offers the following advice, meanwhile: “An aircraft that has sustained damage in its lifetime has diminished value. It’s difficult to assess the extent of the diminished value because so many variables must be considered, the most important of which is the type of damage – obviously, a grazed wing tip is less serious than a gear-up landing. Also to be considered are the number of years the airplane has been successfully flying since the damage was repaired, the reputation of the repair shop, and whether 48

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

repairs were made with factory new or overhauled parts.” Although the Aircraft Bluebook doesn’t provide a percentage guideline to apply against ‘damage history’, I recommend we use its statement regarding ‘missing log books’: “Research indicates that missing log books could diminish the value of an aircraft by as little as 10% or as much as 25%.”

Bottom-Line of Damage History

Market conditions fluctuate. The used aircraft marketplace is a fluid entity governed by multiple outside forces that include, but are not limited to: The Dow Jones Industrial Average, Unemployment Figures, Inflation, the Dollar Foreign Exchange Rate, Libor, Commodities Values, Political Rhetoric, and more. Damage, however, does not fluctuate. What I mean by this statement is that Damage never goes away. It will always be there unless the effected components are replaced with new components without the need for a ‘Major Repair’. Based upon my experience at JetBrokers, Inc., at least 20% of potential Buyers are put-off by any kind of Damage History, including what many might conclude to be trifling matters like lightning strikes, engine times not matching airframe times, and any reference to the aircraft being a guinea pig for an avionics systems manufacturer by temporarily operating with an Experimental Certificate of Airworthiness. Thus, any damage history will affect future marketability of an aircraft and have an economic impact on its value. T

Per-Occurrence War & TRIA Liability Insurance

Upgraded to a 'Buy' Recommendation Observing increasing volatility throughout the globe, Stuart Hope recommends that owners of business aircraft consider purchasing optional coverage available through war risk insurance and provisions of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA). iability coverage under an aircraft insurance policy has two separate components: primary liability coverage and war risk liability, each with its own associated premium. Unlike the primary liability coverage, which applies to all covered losses under the policy, the war risk liability coverage only applies to losses resulting from the specific war-related perils (war, hijacking, terrorist acts, confiscation, riots and civil commotion, etc.). The primary liability coverage limit is written on a per-occurrence basis, which means the full liability coverage limit applies to each and every occurrence that takes place during the policy period. The war risk liability coverage, however, is

written on an occurrence/aggregate basis, which means the limit of liability does not reset with each occurrence. Once cumulative liability claims payments during a policy term total the policy’s liability limit, coverage is exhausted. To further complicate matters, for any aircraft owner that carries a liability coverage limit in excess of $50m, their coverage for any loss caused by one of the War Risk perils has a sub-limit. That is, coverage for bodily injury liability to persons outside of the aircraft and any property damage liability is limited to $50m. The higher overall liability limit they purchase is only applicable to passenger bodily injury liability. Aircraft Index see Page 153

BOARDROOM T INSURANCE

“ For a reasonable additional premium, you can purchase peroccurrence War Risk insurance that includes the provisions of the TRIA.” 52

Illustrative Example Assume an aircraft owner carries a $200m liability limit, including War Risk coverage. On a trip, a disgruntled co-pilot who sympathizes with a terrorist cause takes control of the flight from the Captain and flies the aircraft into a skyscraper. There are numerous fatalities in the building, millions of dollars in damage to the structure itself, and all five passengers on board the aircraft are lost. In the lawsuits that follow, the aircraft owner will have full access to the $200m liability coverage for bodily injury lawsuits brought on behalf of the passengers. Coverage for claims related to persons injured or killed in or around the building as well as for physical damage to the building, however, will be restricted to $50m. Keep in mind, as we discussed earlier, the War Risks coverage is written on an aggregate basis. Not only could you be caught with an inadequate overall limit for this loss, but you may also have to immediately buy more coverage since the liability limit does not reset for a possible future loss as an occurrence limit would. Recommendation: This example gets us to my buy recommendation. For a reasonable additional premium, you can purchase peroccurrence War Risk insurance that includes the provisions of the TRIA. I include TRIA because if you buy the per occurrence war coverage you

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

would be foolish not to go ahead and pick up the TRIA coverage for a very small delta in premium. By purchasing the per-occurrence War and TRIA, your $200m limit now applies to all covered losses; no longer contains any sub-limit for bodily injury claims to persons outside of the aircraft or any property damage claims; and removes the aggregate limit so the full $200m limit is available for all accidents during a given policy term. In addition, you pick up the benefits of TRIA coverage we have discussed in previous articles [e.g., cannot be cancelled except by the government, occurrence-based coverage trigger dictated by three US officials and not insurance contract language, etc.] When you consider how much money you spend on aircraft maintenance alone, the additional premium here will seem inconsequential for the peace of mind you should have now that you understand what you are getting. In the past, most War Risk related events predominately seemed to occur away from our soil. The world is changing, and we must adapt to meet the new proximity of these threats.

A Discussion on Special Missions Aircraft

Special Market Opportunities for Business Aircraft Brokers & Operators In today’s challenging marketplace, aviation professionals are looking for new avenues for their management, operational or brokering services. Ken Elliott explores the unique and potentially rewarding arena of Special Use aircraft. ne could argue that many aircraft operate in a manner often construed as ‘Special Missions’. As a term, Special Missions tends to have military connotations and yet nothing could be further from reality. This article will help you understand the technology, integration and advances of aircraft avionics and equipage associated with Special Missions (SM), with a review of SM aircraft, roles, exporting and considerations. Special Missions covers a wide spectrum of aviation activity—activity that will take you down pathways you may never have previously explored where familiar aircraft a re hardly recognizable, systems come with exotic code names, equipment

operates in exotic frequency bands, throughout extreme conditions, and you deal with companies that operate to completely different business models. Looking for Special Mission usage may open a new arena of commercial endeavor for your business aircraft. Despite the mystery of it all, however, commonly known business and GA aircraft are being utilized in this way more and more. Today, the Special Missions discussion is a relevant topic to the regular commercial transport environment. Trying to define SM could be very limiting and not do justice to its scope. However, one way to attempt a definition is to describe operations where an aircraft is either specifically designed for SM or, as is often the  Aircraft Index see Page 153

case, modified for a purpose beyond its primary intended use. For Business and General Aviation there are two existing uses of an aircraft; the transport of passengers and the carriage of goods. Today we see many examples of these aircraft being adopted for a third use in SM, while for helicopters, the separation of transport and SM activity is less clear. In simplistic terms, the SM aircraft is doing something additional to simply flying in the most efficient manner between multiple airports. By using flight management systems operating with complex recurring flight patterns, the aircraft may be reliably removed from direct flights between airports and predictably complete SM profiles. Alternately, a SM aircraft, especially the helicopter, will fly away from airports to conduct operations such as medeva c or line inspection. Another factor that is blurring the demarcation between transport and SM is the configuration of a single aircraft for both uses. This may be to operate in a full-time multi-mode capacity, accomplishing both roles simultaneously, or via a rapid switch-out of the interior and SM pallet, operating in different modes sequentially. There is a surprisingly large variety of aircraft types involved in some form of SM; it could be said that

just about any aircraft can be utilized for a SM operation. So as not to boil the ocean with an exhaustive list, Table 1A through C (depicted in Figure A, above) provide examples of SM platforms, based on well-known Business and General Aviation aircraft and Tables 1D and E provide examples of purpose built SM platforms, designed and deployed from scratch for that reason. There is some crossover between upgraded and purpose-built, in that a number of upgraded aircraft are so heavily modified that they may as well be purpose-built. (The list does not include UAVs, which would serve to create a complete SM topic of its own.) Typically, all the major OEMs have SM programs, involving either custom-built or modified versions of their standard platforms found in the commercial environment. If a viable request comes along for an existing production model of a commercial platform, a new version of the existing platform will emerge and will either be designated with a sequence of letters after its existing model name or a whole new model code name will be provided. It can be assumed, therefore, that the vast majority of purpose-built and upgraded SM aircraft were initiated by a bid that was won for one or other Government-related contract.

Special Mission Roles

The list of individual SM roles is almost as long as the types and models of aircraft deployed. Roles may range from the simple to complex and from under $100k to well over $20m in outfitting costs. While complexity can be expected to increase with aircraft size and cost, some smaller aircraft can be loaded with SM equipment making them equally as complex as their larger cousins. When planning a single aircraft for multi-role activity, it is important to consider open architecture in the design. This allows systems to be removed and added, enabling flexibility and adaptability to changing threat targets and providing for technology improvements. From the aircraft’s structural perspective, the design could be based on provisions and removable pallets. Each pallet will allow the aircraf t to perform a different role or mode of operation. Especially when used for intelligence-gathering, there are several modes of intelligence - from images to signals - but it may not be necessary to cater for all the modes and carry the full payload weight for every flight. It is advisable to consider a cargo-style door for multi-role activity, allowing easy switch out of pallets and swapping between tran sport and special operations.

Acronyms for Special Missions Roles

Unfortunately, unless you are a member of the distinctive SM club, the acronyms and ‘glossary of terms’ used to describe the various roles undertaken, may be very confusing. So while Figure B (below) spells out various roles performed, each one can be

identified by a short form acronym. Additionally, the specific public acronym of VIP is extended to VVIP (with an extra ‘very’ inserted), to apply to government transport aircraft that could be presidential and, in turn, will imply equipage to include SM protection and communication.

“When planning a single aircraft for multi-role activity, it is important to consider open architecture in the design.”

Special Mission Roles Categorized

Returning to the SM roles themselves, there are four broad categories in which they may be grouped: • • • •

Munitions Military Light Military Government Public Service

The last category can be a public service provided by an individual or private group and would, for example, include a hospital corporation with its own medevac platform(s). Noticeably absent from the aircraft platforms (and not part of the Business and General Aviation collection) are fighter aircraft. They fulfill the broad category of Munitions Military. However, some nonfighter jets carry limited munitions (flares, for e xample, considered a munition). The broad category of Light Military allows for a limited provision of munitions, in protective support of the primary mission and not in an attack capacity.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)

ITAR are a set of very strict export rules that send companies into a tailspin and keep many from even trying to penetrate the SM arena. In the world of

Figure C: A diagrammatic and simplistic representation of US export considerations for SM data and equipment.

“Treaties also exist between nations, both in trade and in defense.”

ITAR, arms are not necessarily weapons. In fact, most of the ITAR regulations apply to equipment that is not deployed for an attack. Invoking ITAR rules, the US Government sees the need to control the export of goods and services (including personnel visits, manuals, documents and software), as well as equipment and material, that could be used to facilitate the use of weapons, or provide an intellectual advantage to countries that are considered to be in the opposing camp. The key areas to understand about ITAR are: The category of your export under the regulations; • Control of foreign personnel acces s to data; • Always checking the denied parties list; • ITAR’s broad application to so many articles, systems and equipment; • The time it takes and the process required to obtain an export license; • The different methods of ‘making your case’ to export; • The use of Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) to determine export categories and review ‘cases for export’; • Knowing the true end-users and where they reside. •

The latter has a presence in a number of US major cities and is ready to assist in export enquiries. A key in determining whether an export license is needed from the Department of Commerce is knowing whether the item you intend to export has a specific Export Control Classification Numbe r (ECCN). The ECCN is an alpha-numeric code (e.g., 4BA005) that describes the item and its licensing requirements. Remember the license can be for anything, ranging from a minor part to a complete aircraft. Exporting rules exist in most (if not all) countries, with the US model being a good baseline. Treaties also exist between nations, both in trade and in defense. These dramatically alter the degree of e xport control, depending on who is exporting to whom.

Some Primary Special Missions Considerations

While there are many considerations for Special Missions, some can be show stoppers for any new program. Understand that the mission is the first priority; then selecting the right aircraft for the project is next. Size, performance, acquisition and operating costs are the key considerations for selecting the aircraft. •

Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

More recently, the US government has made it easier for SM’s items and data to be exported by expanding the use of the Commerce Control List (CCL) that controls commercial (as opposed to military or munitions) exports. By easing up on the degree of control necessary for items that are not Significant Military Equipment (SME) or highly sensitive, the government was able to move a large number of transactions to the less burdensome processes of the US Department of Commerce. 60

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

Mission: Before considering an aircraft acquisition, spend sufficient time on truly defining or understanding the mission. There may be multiple roles in play. Full concurrence by all interested parties is also critically important. Size: The aircraft must be able to support its payload requirements. The airports, aprons, ramps and runways must be able to accommodate the size selected. Perfor mance: Factors such as Maximum Take Off Weight (MTOW) with full payload, required runway length, operating range, speeds and altitude are all major performance considerations  Aircraft Index see Page 153

for selecting an aircraft. Because mission specific performance requirements need to be met, careful consideration should be given to the operating environment that may not be typical for the model of aircraft proposed. • Acquisition and Operating Costs: Cost is a weighted decision after the right aircraft is selected for a program. This is where compromises are made and trade-offs balanced out. Both acquisition and operating costs are important. With acquisition comes financing and the delicate consideration of life cycle where initial outlay and financing terms are balanced against anticipated income, less life cycle operating costs. This will be addressed in more detail in a future article. The option to select new versus pre-owned, for a SM program, should also be evaluated, unless the requirement is strictly for new (or preowned). Avoiding re-design and re-engineering are also critical to a program’s cost. The only way to circumvent them is to undertake sufficient due diligence before a program is launched. SM programs may be supported by aircraft that are managed and operated by specialist companies providing that type of service. Companies such as Dynamic Aviation, in the US, and Provincial Airlines (SM aircraft division), in Canada, are examples of specialized operators providing turnkey, wet and dry lease, or managed programs. Their aircraft are workhorses and may be modified to suit the mission. However, at no time during the program does the end customer, government or agency, need to acquire, own and operate an aircraft on their own. This is a great way to cover for short-term mission requirements, or if the mission need is not part of the customer’s core business.

National Special Mission Needs

Pro-active intelligence gathering is important for nations to protect their interests and be prepared in advance of any threats to national security. Furthermore, intelligence is required in real time

as potential ‘targets’ constantly change. Gathering the intelligence is one thing and processing it, also in real time, is another. Processing techniques and speeds are a key focus in today’s world. After techniques and speeds are optimized, data and communications security protection is attended to. And because security breaches are so common, secure connections are constantly being revised. In multirole missions, data are collected from multiple sensors and integrated to form a real time ‘picture’ of the target. Monitoring voice traffic from the target’s activity will help complete the ‘picture’. Unfortunately, today’s threat targets are very adaptable and not, as a rule, originating from the same kind of security concerns that occurred during the Cold War. These scenarios are challenging the SM community and governments are scrambling to stay ahead of the eves droppers and hackers.

Summary

Many of our airports contain operators who reside somewhere in a remote corner and keep their hangar doors shut. Their activity is a matter for speculation. When seen, the aircraft may be adorned with pods and possess a complete antenna farm, looking like a candidate for a Star Wars movie. All over the world operations are conducted by aviation concerns that may be identified as Special Missions. They operate from regular runways, lakes, hospital roofs, military bases, grass strips and desert ramps. Yet, they all have this in common; aircraft, equipment and crews, operating the same as any other flight department, with the express purpose of completing a specific role (or multiple roles) with an economic means to meet an intended function. They typically extend or change the role from strictly transport, to specialized missions. With that in mind, future articles will delve into the aircraft, roles, operations, the market place and different perspectives of specialized services, including how they can impact flight department planning and operations.

Picking the Best Jet Interior for You

Tips for Narrowing the Vast Options Available for Interior Refurbishment Faced with millions of combinations from hundreds of colors, textures and finishes available for your next business jet cabin refurbishment, Dave Higdon asks how you can narrow the choice to get the cabin that’s right for your operations…

he aircraft owner couldn’t decide which was harder when confronted by a wall of colors, textures and finishes in the refurbishment shop—picking colors and fabrics for redecorating his house, or specifying what colors and materials to use for refurbishing an aircraft interior… In front of him were hundreds of options for the side-panels alongside an equally dizzying array of fabrics and leathers for the seats. Another section of the room offered a range of options for metal 68

trim finishes. “And then there's the carpeting!” he said. “It's all a little overwhelming – but at least we don't have to deal with paint colors and livery today.” The existing interior of the owner’s aircraft showed the accumulated w ear of a decade of trips and was in need of something more than a ‘light touch-up’. Leaving the shop carrying several thick binders of samples, swatches of fabrics, leathers and carpets, what he wanted was a way to streamline

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 153


Refurbishment 1 Aug16.qxp_Finance 19/07/2016 11:17 Page 2

the process, narrowing the choices to find the options that he really needed. “The most important thing is to start asking questions early on,” explains Rodney Wilson, founder and president of three-year-old Air Capital Interiors. Wilson's approach is informed by more than a decade of helping jet buyers ‘spec’ their interiors while working for a major business jet OEM across town from his interior shop's East Wichita location. “First, how are you going to use the airplane,” he elaborated. “Will it be personal use or business use? If the owner is planning on business use, will the aircraft be transporting executives or hauling oil-field workers out to their rigs? “If the airplane is going to be infrequently used, you have a lot more options,” he explained. “If it's going to be heavily used, then you will need heavier-duty materials. Only after making that distinction do you get to personal preferences – i.e. a light and airy cabin or a dark boardroom style. Sometimes customers have a car they want to mimic, too.” But the last thing Wilson wants to do is overwhelm the prospect with the dizzying array of options. “I find it helpful to not put 50 different metal finishes or fabric swatches in front of customers. So we try to minimize the variety of options,” Wilson added. “Sometimes we do put samples in front of them to help them to narrow down the choices - but never before the more fundamental questions are answered.”

Follow-Up Questions

Wilson along with some other interior shop executives offered other questions that need answers before colors and textures can be selected. Among them, questions about the resale prospects for the airplane. An owner planning to sell shortly after refurbishment may want to lean toward lower-cost work/ materials. “While the work is somewhat permanent, like a house materials can be changed at any time,” Wilson notes. “It's just a matter of expense.” Owners who plan to keep the airplane long-term may be more willing to spend more to get what they want, the way they want it. Is the customer or prospect using their own designer? If so, who calls the shots? The consensus of those surveyed points toward the design shop doing so, as approved by its client. Next, is the project time-sensitive or is there a time factor in play? Sometimes the customer will tell the interior shop that the airplane is going to be down for a period. “If that downtime starts in a month, that leaves precious little time to work with the customer on selections, gather the selected materials and finish the work before the airplane is due to return to service,” Wilson notes. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Does the customer want exotic or rare materials, like wood veneers with straight grain lines, or carpeting with an intricate design weave? These decisions will have a bearing on the time factor – along with the cost. For example, carpets can vary hugely in price. Sometimes customers want something exotic that can run to hundreds of dollars per square yard and take weeks to have custom woven. The job has to factor in all of these considerations. A controlling factor can be the availability of materials, notes Wilson. “The materials that suppliers keep in stock can drive customer choices, as can design elements the client wants that take extra time to produce. Customdying wools, custom cabinetry – these can all add time and expense. “Getting veneers can take some time, and we try to know what our suppliers have in stock. The only difference in getting veneers for a small Citation or a BBJ is the scale of the order,” he explains. “We try to work only with vendors who can hit a schedule and keep commitments, so we can be assured of having what we need, when we need it.” In the end, all the shop executives agreed, they can fulfill just about any wish an owner expresses – so long as it doesn't conflict with FAA regulations. “If money is no object, we can do anything. If money is an issue, we have a more-limited range of choices. Regardless, we try to avoid overwhelming the customer with options.”

In just under three years, Air Capital Interiors has worked on about 400 aircraft jobs covering more than 50 aircraft types ranging from Cessna Skyhawks to Gulfstream GIVs. Wilson notes it’s essential to know what kind of customer he’s dealing with… “The key to satisfaction is no surprises,” he outlines. “Sometimes the more difficult customers have all the time and all the money in the world – and it gets hard for them to narrow down choices. “Other customers have fewer resources, and we work to help them make choices matching their budget. You get every customer t ype in all airplanes, whether a King Air 90-series or a BBJ.” Wilson continued, “What I learned in specking airplanes for customers is that their expectations must be met. “If they've gone through the process before, they tend to be easier to work with and not overwhelmed,” he explained. “If it's their first airplane, it can be a lot tougher and more likely to overwhelm them with choices. So we try to cover the basics. It helps to know what direction they want to take.” www.AVBUYER.com

How important are the details to the principle? Is there any information that provides a starting point? ‘Props’ like a small selection of materials, a couple of interior color palettes, an interior photo can often lead to a good starting point…

Flexibility Helps

“Sometimes you start with a customer and find that you need to look at a broader range of options than they originally considered,” Wilson noted. “We have to be flexible because in the end making the customer happy is our most important goal.” Whether a small piston or a large business jet, the end goal is the same – a finished job that makes the customer happy and brings them back for their next interior refurbishment job. “Specking airp lanes is not an efficiency exercise,” concludes Wilson. “Sometimes you start with the last thing on your mind and go forward; other times the customer has a particular design element incorporated into the airplane and you work from there. “The outcomes are the same; but how you get there is always a little bit different.” T

Maintenance Recommendations When Refurbishing Your Aircraft

A fresh new interior can be just what you need to improve the aesthetics of an aircraft and enhance its overall value, notes JSSI’s Donald Ridge. From a maintenance perspective, there are several associated concerns that you must consider…

W

hat are the biggest maintenance issues to consider when your aircraft is scheduled for refurbishment? JSSI is involved in thousands of inspections each year, and many of these are in conjunction with a major refurbishment event. Speaking from experience, here are my top five…

Donald Ridge is Manager, Program Development for JSSI. He previously worked for Aerodynamics Inc. and began his Business Aviation career as a Gulfstream technician, working his way through the organization to Director of Interior, Executive Director Service Group, Executive Director Customer Relations. He was also Director of Maintenance for a 121/135 Air Carrier. More from www.jetsupport.com

1. Be Prepared for Corrosion

Corrosion happens, and depending on the age of the aircraft the odds are in favor of discovering some level of corrosion when you open it up for a complete interior refurbishment. These odds increase even more if the airplane is based in a salty environment or the majority of the missions flown happen to be to tropical destinations. When the interior is completely removed, it is a perfect opportunity to take out the insulation between the interior panels and the skin of the aircraft to perform a thorough examination of the skin and various structural components that are now exposed. Special attention should be paid to any openings in the fuselage such as antennae and emergency exits. Also, all the structure around galleys

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

and lavatories should be carefully inspected as these areas are known corrosion hotspots.

2. Timing is Everything

Once the decision is made to do an interior refurbishment and the maintenance department is informed, the next step should include looking at all the upcoming inspections and overhauls that are due around the same time as the refurbishment. (The last thing you want to do is rip out the headliner and flooring a couple of weeks after the interior was just completed, all because an inspection deadline is due but wasn’t in your refurbishment plan.) Substantial labor costs can be saved by coordinating the scheduled airframe inspection work during the refurbishment process. I suggest taking all the time you need to plan this work carefully. A good hourly maintenance program will do this for you. Planning will save a lot of time and expense, as well as limiting the wear and tear on the new interior that was just installed. Be prepared to postpone or reschedule a desired interior project to coordinate with a scheduled inspection(s). Careful consideration for other upgrades should Aircraft Index see Page 153

4. Proper Documentation is Crucial

Maintenance departments go to extremes to meet Part 135 requirements so the aircraft can be used for charter operations. There are all kinds of regulations to follow, as many of you know, to operate under this charter designation. One thing we have seen happen time and time again is that owners create a refurbishment plan without any consideration to all of these Part 135 requirements. I always recommend installing the interior that complies with Part 135 standards, including fireblocking of the interior, because you never know when a decision to put the aircraft on a charter certificate may happen even if the airplane has always operated under Part 91. Many interior finishes and materials are beautiful and will look great inside your aircraft, but if they don’t meet the required standards you will not have the proper documentation should you wish to broaden out the operations of your aircraft. Most new aircraft come from the OEM with proper documentation for meeting the stricter Part 135 regulations, but a review of the documents should be performed to be certain that any new rules that may have been introduced since the aircraft was built will be addressed at this time.

5. Finish the Planning Process Before Taking it to the Shop

“Keep in mind that your situation could be unique if you are trying to schedule other maintenance inspection work at the same time.” 76

also be integrated into the refurbishment plan. Entertainment systems and LED lighting are the more obvious upgrades and typically get included up-front with the refurbishment plan. But, new cockpit avionics - mandated or optional - should also be part of the plan because such work will most likely involve a new antenna that requires access through that freshly refurbished interior if it is not completed during the new interior refurb. The new ADS-B and FANS mandates are good examples of upgrade plans that you should include in this process.

3. Find The Right Shop For Your Aircraft

There are plenty of refurbishment shops vying for your interior project, but many of them may not be the right choice. Finding the right shop requires extensive research and should involve talking to several other aircraft operators that fly the same aircraft model as you. Getting referrals and learning about other’s experiences will help you make a final decision. Keep in mind that your situation could be unique if you are trying to schedule other maintenance inspection work at the same time, as suggested earlier. Making sure that the shop’s logistical support and technical capabilities meet your needs is crucial when selecting the right refurbishment facility.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

My advice may sound strange to many readers but in my 30 years of experience, I have witnessed many operators dropping off their aircraft for refurbishment without making sure all of the materials and parts are already ordered for the interior. This one element of planning can save weeks of downtime because of the extensive lead times on some fabrics and other interior materials. You can also save plenty of time by coordinating with the maintenance team that will be doing the inspections or overhaul work to make sure all necessary parts are ordered, and the procurement process has begun before the airplane arrives. Also, once the aircraft has been dropped off at the shop, any changes to the agreed-upon plan will cause delays. Proper planning before dropping off the aircraft will not only help you receive the best outcome, but it will make it easier for the shop to deliver the right outcome.

Summary

Aircraft interior options today are amazing, and the vast number of qualified refurbishment facilities can do incredible things to make your aircraft look and feel brand new while adding to its residual value. Just keep in mind these five recommendations from your friendly maintenance side of the operation, and make sure they have plenty of time to put the best refurbishment plan together for your aircraft!

International Business Aviation Operations Part 4

Flying to India: Permits, Complications & Closed for Weekends! For flying to, over and within India the considerations are considerable and complex, notes Dave Higdon, who continues his examination of operating within the various ATC systems throughout the globe… ith any international trip, advance planning is key. Arguably that’s even more so for India than for international visitors to the US or Europe. For example, under current rules the agency with authority to issue permits in India closes over weekends – and, of course, for holidays—meaning any permits needed for a weekend flight (ente ring, leaving or over-flight) won't get any action between Friday evening and Monday morning. Permits can also take days, if not weeks to obtain and are difficult to impossible to change. Business

aircraft are limited to 14 days in the country without either a new permit or a revision to the existing permit – and revisions needed to extend a visit by a day or a week may take weeks to obtain. Thus, due cons ideration of these requirements and limitations is essential.

Visas Before You Fly

Professional handlers and international trip planners all advise India-bound travelers to apply for, and obtain visas well in advance of departure, specifying your planned arrival date. Both passengers and crew must obtain visas for their visits.

There are exceptions, among them to nationals of Nepal and Bhutan, while visas may be obtained after landing for nationals of Finland, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, New Zealand, Luxembourg and Laos. And there are exceptions for other nationals that allow a visa to be obtained after landing – but that is strictly at the discretion of the immigration authorities. Even with these exceptions, obtaining visas on arrival for nationals of Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Bangladesh come with restrictions. Your best bet? Use a visa provi der to be sure you are working from the latest information. In India, Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

visa requirements can change on little-to-no notice. Be prepared to show details of your landing clearance, since part of the process includes establishing a Minimum Holding Altitude (MHA) before the visa is granted. The requirement exists for air-traffic management purposes and to meet requirements of India's security apparatus. Trip pl anning professionals know that this requirement can be a hassle because of the leadtime involved. India also takes into account whether passengers are on business or holiday in their requirements with varying treatments. And most airways are closed to foreign traffic on weekend, www.AVBUYER.com

with only one airway open – and only by an advanced permit. Indian diplomatic missions, embassies and consulates have been authorized to grant these visas – preferably within three days of applying - as part of the process established and run by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The DGCA must provide details of the aircraft landing clearances to the Bureau of Immigration and Director General of Police well ahead of the arrival of the flight. Obtaining a visa on arrival isn't completely off the books – but limited in use. For example, at New Delhi's airport (VIDP) it's possible for crew to obtain a 72-hour crew vis a on arrival; passports and crew IDs are required – but even that service isn’t guaranteed. Upon arrival, customs officials take possession of crew members' passports while issuing them a paper visa. Best practice is for crew members to obtain their visas before departing. Visa-on-arrival should be considered a last resort.

Timing Permit Applications

India wants you to obtain a permit for landing, departing and for overflights. For example, flights to an Indian airport from outside the country can be acquired on relatively short notice, according to a number of trip planners. But applying on a Friday or the day before a holiday is an invitation to remain grounded, stranding passengers and crew until the permit arrives. Further, all foreign-registered aircraft using 80

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

Indian air space need DGCA approval. Unlik e scheduled carriers, business jets need permission each time they fly into, or over India as do those seeking to fly overseas from the country. Keeping front of mind the closing of DGCA operations on holidays and weekends, a flight may be forced to detour around India without the overflight permit, adding time and expense to what might have been a direct flight had the permit arrived on time. Only emerg ency requests have a chance to receive permission on weekends and holidays, but constraints – and permit requirements – on others remain. The weekend closure of DGCA offices impacts not only Business Aviation in India; the commercial carriers struggle under the same constraints. India's airlines that fly weekend routes obtain their approvals in advance, something possible for nonVT-registered aircraft. I f the same rules applied in the US, business aircraft operators would need to obtain permits for weekend flights sometime between the start of the business day on Monday and the end of business on Friday; no pop-up trips on the weekends because the offices would be closed. But there is good news to come out of India's aviation authorities: They are working on improving access. And then there are the time li mitations. Foreignregistered aircraft on the ground in India are limited to 14 days in the country; the operator may leave the country and return, however, as long as the proper permits are in-hand for the aircraft's movement. The good news is that some of the past permit problems have been resolved and involve more airports where a temporary landing permit can be issued.

Customs Clearance, Ground Handling & More...

While India works to attract Business Aviation operators, other sticking points currently remain. For example, business aircraft crew and passengers may need to visit the airport's airline terminal to clear India's customs, immigration and quarantine processes. If the airport happens to be a military airport with civilian use allowed, the requirements for obtaining permission to land and depa rt increase in length significantly. The window for using a permit to land at a military field allows only a one hour window; outside that, a new permit will be required – with the ensuing time delay replayed. Operators with permits to land at civil airports enjoy a much broader window for their arrival time. Landing permits for non-military fields remain valid for 48 hours. And revisions to landing permi ts are not required for non-military locations if a flight is delayed within that timeframe. But add passengers to your flight and you will need to give 24 hours’ notice to revise a landing Aircraft Index see Page 153

permit. And when preparing for a flight involving a landing at a military field, consider the high degree of information required by India's bureaucracy. Military airport permits require 30 business days to arrange but handlers advise operators to apply at least 60 days prior to help cushion the time needed to coordinate required documentation. And there's more. Before granting a permit to land at a military field you'll need to submit significantly more personal information for each person on board – beyond the basic full passport information. India's military requires the name of each person’s father, all their home addresses, plus birth place, nationality, and, for crew members, the pilot license number. The level and cost of services can vary widely in India, which boasts precious few full-service airports with FBOs serving business aircraft. Not all are portof-entry airports, so a technical stop may be needed to clear customs, immigration and quarantine. Fuel prices vary widely, as does the fuel tax – and you can be taxed for fuel remaining after arriving from outside India if the next flight is to a destination within India. No sales taxes are due for fuel when departing India, however, provided you can prove you're headed to another country. Many airports within India are both uncontrolled and lacking basic fuel service, maintenance and parking. In such cases, carrying enough fuel to ferry the a ircraft out is both necessary and helpful when passengers must remain in the destination city overnight. Where there is parking, you face added expense. Most airports charge by the ton of operating weight, applied per hour. This system can put parking/tie-down fees in the hundreds of dollars per day for many common aircraft types. The combination of fuel costs, parking fees, taxes and permit fees can make a trip to India very expensive.

Accommodations & Security Issues

India, thanks to its close proximity to Pakistan and China, stands out as a nation where foreign visitors should consider using a trip planner, expediter or ground-handling agent able to help arrange security – for both the passengers and crew, and the aircraft itself. Sadly, most of India's cities are under a moderate threat level where secur ity is concerned. A first step widely recommended is to acquire upto-date country and city security briefings well before departing. Then, depending on the trip, the people and the time you'll be on the ground in India, you find comfort in having your ground agent or trip planner arrange for security for your aircraft, for the personnel on the trip and ground transportation, depending on your needs. Work ing with a local agent well ahead of the departure date can also help you connect with the 82

best hotels available in any given city. India's two main business destinations, Delhi and Mumbai, both boast international hotel chains and good selections of 4- and 5-star crew accommodations. But outside of the larger cities, the supply of such accommodations may be limited on a good day. Your best bet? Investiga te and book hotels as early as possible.

Summary: Research, Planning & People…

Give yourself plenty of time to work out arrangements for your itinerary. With different airports operating under different rules, knowing the availability of fuel, services, security and hotel choices can be resolved far enough ahead that those processes don't conflict with, or complicate your plans. With the help of a ground ag ent, trip planner and arrangements for security for the airplane and its people, a trip to India can be as productive as any other international destination. But remember: Any changes to your travel dates, itinerary or passenger list may incur delays while waiting on updated permits. T Aircraft Index see Page 153

Work-Life Flexibility

Just recently while sitting on standby in a hotel in France, I was mulling over my upcoming three months’ flying schedule. There were some grueling long-range trips that would keep me away from home for a long period of time. In all honesty, the prospect invoked sadness at being disconnected from my family for the entirety of the summer. Sure, we are all grown-up professionals and we often ‘tough out’ the worst of our flying schedules, but as I began to apply flexible thinking to the situation I realized that we were about to park our aircraft in Europe for twelve days while our principal traveled by sea. We always keep our airplane fullystaffed, so I put together a plan to have my wife and children join me in Italy at short notice. The flexibility I had worked hard to instill into my personal life enabled the plan to succeed, transforming a grueling schedule into a memorable opportunity. Once all of the risks of schedule changes were considered and accepted, my family took advantage of an opportunity that will be remembered by us all for years to come! We want our principals to think of us as embodying t he utmost in efficiency and always being prepared professionally. As I shared my plans with the Chairman of the Board, he acknowledged my good time-management to make the most of a priceless opportunity. The great value to both me and the company were not lost on that seasoned business leader!

As I got back into shape, I found that healthy, moderate eating and exercise made me physically and mentally fitter in the cockpit environment.

Case Study in Rest

Many studies claim that most adults have a nightly sleep deficit of at least two hours. There are no prizes for guessing that, with the nature of the corporate pilot’s professional lifestyle, we are often chronically fatigued and suffering from jet lag. Thus, it is crucial to develop a rest schedule. This is one area where flexibility is not a virtue: sticking to the rest plan requires dedication, conviction and some “me-first” thinking. We need to educate our family and friends that after a long trip, we might be jaded and in need of restful recovery before jumping straight in to a flurry of domestic or social activity.

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

Summary

A balanced lifestyle promoting emotional (personal), mental and physical health is essential. How best to achieve that balance should be an essential discussion within your flight department. Over time, better time management and prioritization will reduce budget costs, enhance operational safety and increase productivity. As a by-product you will have a firm and fit body on which to hang those hard-earned pilot epaulets! T

Case Study in Fitness

Mental and physical health of personnel is an integral part of the flight department. Without due care and attention in this area of management, we may suffer setbacks that can impair safety and productivity. When I approached age 40, I visited my physician for an annual check-up. At that time, I was a flight operations manager for a major fractional ownership company and my phone rang constantly. It was an exciting, busy and intense job, but it was also an unforgiving, punishing lifestyle. The role brought high stress along with bad eating and resting habits. After reading my lab reports and examining me, the doctor prescribed medication for my blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol. His prognosis scared me, and I decided to make changes. A nutritionist taught me to make good choices. I learned how to navigate cravings for junk food and combat the energy lows that come from long days in the cockpi t without regular nourishment and rest. For example, a handful of peanuts and a small protein bar, washed down with water, produced increased physical and mental energy throughout the day. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

ummertime and the living is easy (so says the song). But what happens when summer heats up team troubles? It began with a phone call, “Do you have time for a visit? Our Flight Department is becoming unraveled. “Two members of the maintenance crew are yelling at each other in the hangar. One of the pilots is creating his own faction to undermine the Aviation Director’s leadership. Corporate just cut back on contractors due to budget constraints.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

Everyone is overworked, tired and bored with shuttle operations. On top of it all, we’ve got training and summer vacations, and the demand isn’t letting up. I’m being squeezed from all directions!” When personalities from diverse backgrounds and skillsets spend hours together in cockpits and hangars as individuals but little time all together, it’s very hard to address relationship challenges. Within this scenario, departments start to split into tribal wars with splintered groups grasping for gossip and hearsay to justify their perceptions. 

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T MANAGEMENT

Where to Start

Begin by setting a few boundaries. Although we seem to fight against imposed fences, the human mind is more comfortable knowing and respecting your department’s parameters. Step 1: Demonstrate respect for the position and the role. People are hired for their skillset and their valuable knowledge. When individual egos create a “better than thou” environment, trouble is sure to follow. Leaders sometimes need to say what they expect from others. • Do not talk negatively about team members behind their backs; • Give the benefit of the doubt when it is unclear why someone does or says something. Find out what troubles them; • Apologize when needed and accept apologies when appropriate. Use “please” and “thank you” freely; • Address each person with respect. Use last names if necessary: “Ms. Dolan, would you...” (the word “girls” is never appropriate for professional women, and our use of words displays our values.)

to accept well-intended feedback and coaching without being defensive. Don’t kill the messenger; Make decisions based on factual data, not on feelings or hearsay.

Step 4: To become a positive and high performance team, communication is critical. It takes effort to communicate. • Accept that we may not get all the information in a timely manner. As an Aviation Director, you walk a thin line between being loyal to the department while being part of the corporate management team. Use all methods of communication to keep everyone up-to-date as much as you can; • Make decisions collaboratively when they have serious consequences. Accept, however, that some decisions are not democratic and not easily explained. A mature person learns to live with disappointments; • Communicate time constraints or limitations and provide options. Options are good.

Step 2: A high-performing team holds itself collectively and its members individually accountable. • Respect other’s time by keeping promises, deadlines and time commitments; • Do not offer or accept excuses; others have responsibilities on par with your own; • Hold yourselves accountable for your moods and fix them when they aren’t positive. A cancerous attitude sickens a team-body very quickly. If this should happen, get help immediately from a team-building expert.

Step 5: Build confidence within and among team members. Confidence is contagious. • Confidence is a feeling that regardless of what happens-good or bad—enables the team to work together to create success. Help people build confidence by seeking positive feedback; • Some people are inherently more fearful of the unknown than others. That awful emotion of anxiety appears when we are uncertain and feel like we have no control. When we’re asked to perform out of our comfort zone, a little support goes a long way.

Step 3: Demonstrate your professionalism and respect of others. • People’s behavior tends to be influenced by the demands of their roles within an environment. We often don’t know our colleagues in depth; only the characteristics they show at work. To convey respect for the position and the person in a given role, we should address them professionally through our choice of words, tone of voice and respectful behavior; • Do not use energy to build separate tribes within the team to support our own agenda or crusade; • Realize that most people would rather avoid conflict. Learn

At some point in a team’s growth pattern, someone realizes that team members need to re-calibrate and level-set their behavior and focus. Good leaders know that the time and cost of hiring a specialist to facilitate group dynamics and interpersonal communication is worthwhile. An organizational behavior coach can teach and enhance communication tools to team members. A professionally trained facilitator can navigate through a tough conversation to find positive outcomes while keeping relationships intact. An investment such as this guidance can only make the team more effective and provide a satisfying place to work. T

Flight Department Standard Operating Procedures Is There Enough Clarity in your Operation’s SOPs? Drawing on an accident resulting in four fatalities, Mario Pierobon highlights the lethal impact of unclear Standard Operating Procedures and suggests how an

operator can ensure no such confusion exists within their own flight department… n August 2013, an AS332 L2 Super Puma helicopter carrying 18 people crashed in the sea during an approach to land at Sumburgh airport, Scotland. There were four fatalities. The helicopter had departed a platform in the North Sea and was en route to Sumburgh for refuelling before continuing to Aberdeen airport. According to the report of the UK Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) the weather conditions required the final approach to Runway 09 at Sumburgh be flown in cloud. The approach was conducted with the autopilot in 3-axes and vertical speed mode. This required the commander to operate the collective pitch control manually to manage airspeed. “The co-pilot was responsible for monitoring the helicopter’s vertical flightpath against the published approach vertical profile and for seeking the external visual references necessary to continue

I 90

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

with the approach and landing,” the AAIB report states. “The procedures permitted the helicopter to descend to a height of 300ft, the minimum descent altitude (MDA) for the approach, at which point a level-off was required if visual references had not yet been acquired.” Although the approach vertical profile was maintained initially, insufficient collective pitch control input was applied by the commander to maintain the approach profile and the target approach airspeed of 80 kts - thus the helicopter’s airspeed reduced continuously during the final approach due to insufficient engine power. “Control of the flightpath was lost and the helicopter continued to descend below the MDA. During the latter stages of the approach the helicopter’s airspeed had decreased below 35 kts and a high rate of descent had developed,” the AAIB report elaborates.

Safety July16.qxp_Finance 18/07/2016 16:24 Page 2

developed by the air operator. The type-specific procedures normally come directly from the OEM, and air operators have generally less autonomy to develop and/or adapt these procedures. As previously discussed in this monthly safety column, it’s all too common that Flight Department Operations Manuals tend to replicate the content of applicable regulatory requirements without providing any useful guidance to the flight crew – thus, too many SOPs remain ambiguous at best, offering no clear guidance on specific situations to those crew members using them.

Clarifying SOPs

SOP implementation should consist of four very precise steps.

Mario Pierobon is a safety management consultant and content producer. He currently is working on a research project investigating aircraft ground handling safety. Contact him via marioprbn@gmail.com

Development: A procedure must first be developed (i.e. a standard must be defined). Ideally a series of tasks should be defined as precisely as possible, each task outlining what needs to be performed; how it must be achieved (which tools, under which conditions); who should perform it; and which task must follow it. SOPs should also include contingency planning. Documentation: A procedure must then be documented in the OM. Font size and print colours should be adequate for clarity on a printout or tablet screen, and account for different lighting conditions. As part of SOP documentation an operator may wish to develop checklists or task cards to be used during line operations.

“The decreasing airspeed went unnoticed by the pilots until a very late stage, when the helicopter was in a critically low energy state. The commander’s attempt to recover the situation was unsuccessful and the helicopter struck the surface of the sea approximately 1.7nm west of Sumburgh airport.” According to the AAIB the operator’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for this type of approach was not clearly defined and the pilots had not developed a clear, shared understanding of how the approach was to be flown. In addition, the operator’s SOPs at the time did not optimize the use of the helicopter’s automated systems during a non-precision approach. Clearly defined, unambiguous SOPs should be a core responsibility (if not the main one) of an air service provider.

SOPs Categorized

When it comes to aircraft operations there exist two broad categories of SOPs; namely the common ones documented in Operations Manual Section A (OM-A), and the type-specific ones, documented in Section B (OM-B). It’s the common procedures that require a higher degree of scrutiny, since these need to be directly Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Training: The documented content of the SOPs should then be integrated into initial and recurrent training courses. Implementation Monitoring: Monitoring represents the most dynamic task to be performed as part of SOP implementation, and should be an on-going exercise designed to ensure that line operators’ behaviour is standardized as expected. A calendar of random inspections should be defined by compliance monitoring departments, and inspections carried out regularly and consistently.

Summary

Adequate implementation of clear, unambiguous SOPs, and ongoing monitoring should provide the opportunity for flight department management to continuously improve the safety of their operations. Standard Operating Procedures that are wellstructured and communicated to all relevant parties leave far less margin for confusion or misunderstanding, thereby drastically reducing the chance of an accident occurring. Furthermore, if non-compliances are found to be recurrent within the flight department, a deeper understanding will be gained as to why this is the case (e.g., time pressure or improper standard definition), which can then be addressed and corrected.

Turboprops Give More... Prop Advances keep these Workhorses Competitive The top-selling turboprops tend to be aircraft that are continually popular among owners needing fuel-efficient, multi-mission types, as we explore below…

W

hile exceptions exist, turboprop airplanes offer a common set of attributes that make them an attractive proposition. The powerplants are responsible for most – turboprop engines benefit today from propeller designs that are far more sophisticated than just a decade ago, resulting in lower maintenance costs; longer overhaul cycles; improved climb and cruise performance; and - in turn - reduced noise levels in the cabin. In addition, specific fuel consumption numbers continue to improve – an attractive attribute given today’s depressed oil prices, with the practical effect of allowing the use of higher power-levels without suffering a proportionate increase in fuel consumption/costs. That, in turn, contributes to improvements in take-off, climb and cruise speed. Another advantage offered by many turboprops i s the single-pilot operational simplicity, engineered into even the multi-engine turboprops. The only exceptions to the sum total of these benefits exist among the unpressurized models that are available and form a small, important and dynamic segment of the turboprop market. Today’s turboprops offer a broad range of 92

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

turbine performance, propeller cost-effectiveness (some with at - or near to - Light jet cruise performance capabilities) with cabin and cockpit accoutrements that rival the best of the fanjet strata. And on trips of up to 300 nautical miles, the difference in travel time between a jet and a turboprop is negligible.

Turboprop Price Guide

The following Turboprop Retail Price Guide represents current average values published in The Aircraft Bluebook–Price Digest. The study spans model years from 1997 through Summer 2016 (20 year period). Values reported are in US$ millions, with each reporting point representing the current average retail value published in the Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Piper Meridian reported in the Summer 2016 edition of the Bluebook shows US$1.3m for a 2010 model, US$1.175m for a 2009 model, and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically.

Description of Cost Elements The following describes the content of each cost element used in The Aircraft Cost Evaluator. There are no sales taxes included in these costs. VARIABLE COST PER HOUR Includes fuel, maintenance reserves for routine maintenance, engine/ propeller/APU reserves, and miscellaneous expenses. Specifications - General CABIN DIMENSIONS Cabin Height, Width, and Length are based on a completed interior. On “cabin-class” aircraft, the length is measured from the cockpit divider to the aft pressure bulkhead (or aft cabin bulkhead if unpressurized). For small cabin aircraft, the distance is from the cockpit firewall to the aft bulkhead. Height and width are the maximum within that

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

cabin space. Cabin Volume is the interior volume, with headliner in place, without chairs or other furnishings. Cabin Door Height and Width are the measurements of the main passenger cabin entry door. BAGGAGE Internal baggage volume is the baggage volume that is accessible in flight by the passenger. This amount may vary with the interior layout. External baggage volume is the baggage volume not accessible in flight (nacelle lockers, etc.). CREW SEATS/SEATS EXECUTIVE This is the typical crew and passenger seating commonly used on the aircraft. This is not the maximum certificated seats of the aircraft. These numbers may vary for different operations (Corporate, Commercial, EMS, etc.). Weights: • Maximum Take-Off Weight and Maximum Landing Weight are specified during aircraft certification. • Basic Operating Weight is the empty weight, typically equipped, plus unusable fuel and liquids, flight crew @ 200 pounds each and their supplies. • Useable fuel is the useable fuel in gallons x 6.7 pounds per gallon (Jet fuel) or 6 pounds per gallon (AVGAS). • Payload with Full Fuel is the useful load minus the useable fuel. The useful load is based on the maximum ramp weight minus the basic operating weight. • Maximum Payload is the maximum zero fuel weight minus the basic operating weight. Specifications Performance Range: • Range (4 Pax) - The maximum IFR range of the aircraft with four passenger seats occupied. This uses the NBAA IFR alternate fuel reserve calculation for a 200 N.Mi. alternate. This is used for jet and turboprop aircraft. • Ferry Range - is the maximum IFR range of the aircraft with the maximum fuel on board and no passenger seats occupied. This uses the NBAA IFR alternate fuel reserve calculation for a 200 N.Mi. alternate. This is used for jet and turboprop aircraft. • VFR Range - Seats Full is the maximum www.AVBUYER.com

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

Balanced Field Length BFL is the distance obtained by determining the decision speed (V1) at which the take-off distance and the accelerate-stop distance are equal (fixed-wing multi-engine aircraft only). This is based on four passengers and maximum fuel on board (turbine aircraft). For single-engine and all piston fixed-wing aircraft, this distance represents the take-off field length at Maximum Take-off Weight (MTOW). Landing Distance (Factored) For fixed-wing turbine aircraft, landing distance is computed using FAR 121 criteria. This takes the landing distance from 50/35 feet (depends on certification criteria) and multiplies that by a factor of 1.667. No credit is given for thrust reversers. Configuration is with four passengers and NBAA IFR Fuel Reserve on board. For fixed-wing piston aircraft, this figure is the landing distance over a 50 foot obstacle. Rate of Climb (Ft/Min) The rate of climb, given in feet per minute, is for all engines operating, at MTOW, ISA conditions. One Engine Out rate of climb is for one engine inoperative rate of climb at MTOW, ISA. Cruise Speed (Knots True Air Speed - KTAS) Max Cruise Speed - is the maximum cruise speed at maximum continuous power. This may also be commonly referred to as High Speed Cruise. Normal cruise speed is the recommended cruise speed established by the manufacturer. This speed may also be the same as Maximum Cruise Speed. Long Range Cruise is the manufacturer’s recommended cruise speed for maximum range. Engines The number of engines, manufacturer and model are shown. Aircraft Index see Page 153

Aircraft Comparative Analysis:

Embraer Phenom 300 vs Cessna Citation CJ4 In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on two popular light business jets for the purpose of valuing the Embraer Phenom 300. Mike Chase’s analytical and consultancy services are highly valued within the Business Aviation industry. He is founder and president of Chase & Associates, and works closely with several respected sources to compile his unique Aircraft Comparative Analysis feature. Contact Mike via mike@avbuyer.com

O

ver the following paragraphs, we’ll consider productivity parameters (payload/range, speed and cabin size) and cover current and future market values for the Embraer Phenom 300. The field in this comparative study includes Cessna’s Citation CJ4. The Phenom 300 has a capacity for six passenger seats in its normal configuration with a single pilot. Interior configurations also offer options of a side-facing seat and belted toilet. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW535E engines, the Phenom 300 first flew in May 2008, earning FAA Certification in December 2009. First customer delivery took place that same month. In its cockpit, the Phenom 300 utilizes either the

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – August 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

Garmin G1000 or G3000 avionics panel. An early indicator of the future success the Phenom 300 would enjoy came through its selection by leading fractio nal providers NetJets and Flight Options/Flexjet, each placing large orders. Today, there are 87 Phenom 300s in fractional operation representing 26.5% of the total fleet of 328 Phenom 300s in operation. Aside from the 87 in fractional ownership programs, there are also 236 wholly-owned and five Phenom 300s in shared ownership. Thirteen Phenom 300s are leased, according to JETNET. North America has the l argest fleet share percentage (57%), followed by South America (22%) and Europe (16%), for a combined total of 95% of the world’s fleet. Aircraft Index see Page 153

Chart A - Cabin Cross-Sections Cessna Citation CJ4

The data contained in Table B (left) are published in the B&CA, May 2016 issue, but is also sourced from Conklin & de Decker. As we have mentioned in past articles, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Phenom 300 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ at 942 lbs is less than the Citation CJ4 at 1,052 lbs. The fuel usage by each aircraft in this field of study is also represented in Table B. The Phenom 300 burns 16% less fuel at 158 gallons per hour (GPH) compared to the Citation CJ4 (188 GPH), according to Aircraft Cost Calculator.

Embraer Phenom 300

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Phenom 300 cabin volume is 324 cubic feet. While this is larger than the CJ4s overall cabin volume of 293 cu. ft., the CJ4 offers a slightly longer cabin at 17.3 ft versus the Phenom 300’s 17.17 ft. As depicted by the Cabin CrossSection comparison in Chart A, left (courtesy of UPCAST JETBOOK), the Phenom 300 offers greater cabin width and height.

Range Comparison

As depicted in Chart B (top right), using Wichita, Kansas as the origin point, the Phenom 300 offers marginally more range than the Citation CJ4, as sourced from Aircraft Cost Calculator (ACC). Note: For jets and turboprops, ‘Seats Full Range’ represents the maximum IFR range of the aircraft at Long-Range Cruise with all passenger seats occupied.

As mentioned previously, the Phenom 300 is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW535E engines each offering 3,360 pounds of thrust (lbst). The Citation CJ4 offers a pair of Williams FJ44-4A engines with 3,621 lbst each.

Cost Per Mile

Using data published in the May 2016 B&CA Planning and Purchasing Handbook and the August 2015 B&CA Operations Planning Guide we will compare our aircraft. The nationwide average Jet A fuel cost used from the August 2015 edition was $5.25 per gallon at press time, so for the sake of comparison we’ll chart the numbers as published. Note: Fuel price used from this source does not represent an average price for the year. Chart C (right) details ‘Cost per Mile’ and compares the Phenom 300 to its competition, factoring direct costs and with each aircraft flying a 1,000nm mission with a 800 lbs payload. The Citation CJ4 shows the highest cost per nautical mile at $2.84 compared to $2.46 for the Phenom 300. This is a difference of 13.4% in favor of the Phenom 300.

values are from Conklin & de Decker and Aircraft Cost Calculator, while the number of aircraft in-operation and percentage ‘For Sale’ are as reported by JETNET. The Phenom 300 has 5.2% of its fleet currently ‘For Sale’ and the Citation CJ4 has 6.5% for sale. Also, the average number of new deliveries and pre-owned transactions (sold) per month for the Phenom 300 is higher at 8 units per month than the Citation CJ4 (5 per month), as shown in the last column in Table C (left).

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are often depreciable for income tax purposes under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Under MACRS, taxpayers are allowed to accelerate the depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first few years of the appli cable recovery period (see Table D, left). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determi ning if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table E (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2016 Phenom 300 business aircraft in private (Part 91) a nd charter (Part 135) operations over five and sevenyear periods, assuming a new retail value of $8.995 million, per Vref Pricing guide.  Aircraft Index see Page 153

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T AIRCRAFT COMPARATIVE

Chart E, sourced from the Multi-Dimensional Economic Evaluators Inc. (www.meevaluators.com), shows a Value and Demand chart for the pre-owned Phenom 300. The current pre-owned market for the Phenom 300 aircraft shows a total of 19 aircraft ‘For Sale’ with only three displaying an asking price, thus we have plotted them. We also added the preowned CJ3, CJ4, XLS+ and the Learjet 70 business jets in our study group with asking prices ranging from $3.9m - $9.0m. The equation that we derived from these asking prices and other criteria used should enable sellers and buyers to compare, and perhaps adjust their offerings, if necessary. Demand and Value are on opposite sides of the same Price axis. Thus, the market for used Phenom 300 and others respond to at least four features: Years, AFTT, Range, Quantity and Asking Prices. While each serial number is unique, the airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variations in price. The final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

The points in Chart F (right) are centered on the same aircraft. Pricing used in the vertical axis is as published in the Vref Pricing Guide. The productivity index requires further discussion in that the factors used can be somewhat arbitrary. Productivity can be defined (and it is here) as the multiple of three factors: 1. Range with full payload and available fuel; 2. The long range cruise speed flown to achieve that range; 3. The cabin volume available for passengers and amenities.

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

Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft 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 Phenom 300 displays a high level of productivity. The high-level of productivity for the Phenom 300 is largely due to the fact that it offers a larger cabin and lower operating costs including a 30 GPH (16%) average fuel

burn saving over the Citation CJ4. The purchase price is also lower than that of the CJ4 aircraft. Nevertheless, the Phenom 300 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ at 942 lbs is lower than that of the Citation CJ4. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them.

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon

www.AVBUYER.com

several of the attributes that business aircraft operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance, and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. The Phenom 300 continues to be very popular today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Phenom 300 will continue to do well in the pre-owned market for the foreseeable future. T
