PRE-OWNED FALCON

A FALCON MAY LEAVE THE NEST, BUT IT NEVER LEAVES ITS FAMILY. No one knows a pre-owned Falcon better than Dassault. We designed and built it. And when the time comes to deliver it to a new owner, we prepare it with the same care and support it with the same commitment as any new Falcon. Because every Falcon and every Falcon owner are family.

fter January 20, 2017 Donald J. Trump could say that his other aircraft is Air Force One. In an election that surprised the political pundits and pleased roughly half the nearly 120 million Americans who cast votes early last month, the billionaire real estate developer and owner of four business aircraft—an executiveconfigured Boeing 757, a Cessna Citation and two Sikorsky S-76 helicopters—became the President-elect of the US. The likelihood that the 45th person to hold the highest elected office in the US will directly impact the state of Business Aviation is low. He will have other issues with which to contend, such as infrastructure, taxes, foreign trade, climate change, immigration and hostilities in numerous locations throughout the globe, to mention just a few. Furthermore, accurately predicting the actions of Mr. Trump, who some say is more a pragmatist than an ideologue, obviously is unrealistic. He will do what he wants to do, when he want to do it, presumably (but not necessarily) after consultation with his advisors. His assertiveness is one of the traits strongly embraced by his followers. Believers in the value of Business Aviation presume that they will have an ally in the White House, but nothing should be assumed. As a very active user of business aircraft, however, he appreciates why on-demand mobility and access to all areas of the globe are essential aspects of running his worldwide real estate empire. The Trump Organization, of which he is the principal owner, consists of about 500 entities, including more than 50 properties outside the US. Surely the people tasked with managing Mr. Trump’s interests while he is US President will continue to need and use Business Aviation. Like President Obama, President Trump will rely on Air Force One to give him and his top staff timely and efficient access to the many domestic and international venues where meetings will be held and decisions formulated. Even with an “America First” mantra, The Trump Administration will be spending considerable time outside the US. In this age of satellite communications, face-to-face dialogue is still a necessity. It is unlikely that President Trump will be any less dependent on Air Force One, the ultimate business aircraft, than his predecessor. Considering key topics on the Presidentelect’s agenda for his first 100 days in office— many of which involve interfacing with international parties throughout the globe—we

anticipate that Business Aviation will be see added activity under the Trump Administration.

In This Issue

Now that the voters have spoken and a transition is unfolding, market movement is likely. Certainly the need for information has intensified. Thus it is with our reader’s needs foremost in our selection of subject to address, we continue our focus on meaningful intelligence designed to assist aviation professionals and the business leaders who use Business Aviation. Rollie Vincent reflects on aircraft owner/operator sentiment in this month’s Market Indicators section while Mike Potts analyses the latest new aircraft shipment numbers from GAMA. Mike Chase and Marj Rose, meantime, contemplate new and used sales trends, courtesy of JETNET data and Rani Singh discusses the Middle East Business Aviation marketplace with Global Jet’s Hardy Sohanpal. For the Flight Department as a New Year approaches, NextGen draws ever-closer. Ken Elliott outlines the processes behind the creation of aviation mandates as he launches a series on ‘Understanding Aviation Mandates’. Dave Higdon, meanwhile, concludes his NBAA Gold Wing award-winning International Business Aviation Operations series with a focus on Oceania. Aviation Director Andre Fodor explores ways to avoid maintenance bottle-necks for new aircraft owners, and Mario Pierobon considers key areas for improving flight department safety management. Bombardier’s Challenger 350 features in this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis alongside Gulfstream’s G280, while turboprops feature in our Aircraft Values and Specifications data. Of relevance to the Boardroom: David Wyndham continues his discussion of Business Aviation consultants, this time in relation to open-ended questions and tasks; Keith Swirsky and Chris Younger continue their series on Importing foreign-registered aircraft into the US; Stuart Hope summarizes the key take-aways from our 2016 BizAv Insurance coverage; and Rod Simpson concludes our overview of Dassault’s history. Finally, we wish you a Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous 2017 - during which we make it our resolution to continue to be your key source of Business Aviation Intelligence.

Business Aviation Market Summary With 2016 Virtually Over, What’s Ahead for 2017?

Many observers are no doubt saying, ‘We’re glad that’s over,’ notes Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators, as he reflects on the US Presidential election. With this and Brexit having a big impact on world politics, what’s the Business Aviation picture looking like for 2017…?

T

he 2016 US Presidential election was a hard-fought battle that intrigued much of the planet. Pollsters who got it wrong were in abundance, and a wave of populist sentiment currently sweeps across the geo-political landscape. For Business Aviation, many industry proponents will delight in the fact that the new US President-elect is already an enthusiastic private aviation customer, with a fleet of owned aircraft that covers the spectrum from Sikorsky S-76 helicopters to a Citation X and Boeing B757. From a regulatory perspective, this should bode well for an industry that has been buffeted over the last several years by negative rhetoric from the Oval Office, an unwelcome headwind that did nothing to help the industry recover from the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. With many voters in the US (and in the UK with the surprising Brexit vote) seeking “change”, however defined, we expect 2017 will be witness to some very substantial transitions that will challenge the status quo in Washington, Brussels, London and other world centers of government and business.

The Impact on BizAv?

So, what do these geo-political transitions portend for Business Aviation, particularly in the New Year? With aircraft sales, prices, and utilization on the decline throughout 2016, will Brexit and a new US Administration provide any much-needed lift for the Business Aviation industry? Although we can no doubt be criticized at this time for even mentioning the word ‘survey’, the Q3 2016 JETNET iQ Survey of business aircraft owners and operators included specific questions on the expected impact of both Brexit and the US Presidential election on the industry. A random sample of more than 500 fixed-wing owners/operators in 61 countries (65% of whom made or 16

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

influenced their organization’s last aircraft purchase) found that Brexit and the US election were in fact important issues facing the industry. About 25% of worldwide respondents (and 37% of those based in Europe) disagreed with the statement that the uncertainty following the Brexit referendum will have little of no impact on Business Aviation (Chart A, top right). Worldwide, 41% of respondents believed that the uncertainty related to the [upcoming at the time] US Presidential election would have little or no impact on Business Aviation. Within respondents based in North America (US & Canada), this proportion increased to 52% (Chart B, bottom right). Conventional wisdom suggests that most people abhor uncertainty, and this seems to be especially the case in Business Aviation. Tumbling residual values, soft prices and lower aircraft utilization levels are the result of an oversupplied business aircraft market that has clearly stopped recovering for the time being. Economic and regulatory uncertainty, a near-constant concern with aircraft owners and operators, is likely to increase in 2017 as negotiations get underway in earnest on the future of UK–Europe relations, and as decisions are made and positions are clarified in what looks to be a raucous debate amongst various factions of the US Government. Entertaining? Perhaps to some, but probably disconcerting to many, as the

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 153


MarketIndicators Dec16.qxp_Layout 1 22/11/2016 17:06 Page 2

potential exists for a reset of the US’ trade and even security relationships with longestablished trading partners and military allies. Will there be even more (unwelcome) uncertainty in 2017? Our vote is, sadly, “Yes”.

Chart A External Factors: Brexit

Used Jet Market

The pre-owned business jet market continues to be quite active, although the volume of whole retail business jet transactions has been trending slowly downwards in H2 2016. In the ‘Good News’ column is the fact that we have been seeing a firming-up of prices in the lower-end of the market, led initially by the turboprop and now the light jet segments. This is a welcome sign, especially for the hard-hit light jet segment, after a prolonged and stubbornly shallow recovery that has been quietly underway for the past few years. Large cabin business jet values remain under tremendous downward pressure, as ‘For Sale’ inventory increases and the market adjusts to the fact that wellregarded aircraft such as the Gulfstream G450 and G550 will soon be out of production. These aircraft are already joining a crowded stable of models whose values have declined much faster than expected. Although it may be tempting to think that, once sold, an aircraft’s value is primarily the concern of the new owner, this can easily become a self-defeating spiral. Left unchecked, rapidly declining values will almost inevitably lead to buyer’s/lender’s/lessor’s remorse, and ultimately a flight of customers and capital to more lucrative investments. The radical restructuring of the business aircraft lending/leasing industry is one of the most significant consequences of the rapid decline in residual values which has been the industry “news story” of the past two years. Political leaders in Washington, Brussels, London and elsewhere will have far more pressing issues to address in the coming year than the Business Aviation industry’s supply/demand imbalances. A key question for policy makers: ‘How to stimulate economic growth in the face of seething nationalistic demands for trade, travel and migration restrictions?’ These external forces could easily become the industry “news story” of 2017.  MI www.rollandvincent.com Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

October 2016 versus October 2015

October 2016 versus September 2016

BizAv Activity Europe There were 66,921 Business Aviation departures in Europe in October 2016 according to WINGX’s latest monthly Business Aviation Monitor, representing a -2.8% Year-over-Year (YoY) decline in activity. The slowdown came in turboprop activity, with business jet flights flat YoY. The overall Year-To-Date (YTD) 2016 trend in Business Aviation activity is now -0.3% compared to 2015. In particular, faltering demand in France and Germany weighed the market down. From these two countries there were 1,600 fewer flight departures YoY in October. Business Aviation flights within Germany slumped -10%. Charter activity in France fell -7% YoY. Other large markets, including UK and Switzerland were also weaker on a YoY basis. The UK still has growth YTD, averaging >100 more flights each month compared to last year. But flights from the UK to Europe were down by -4% in October. The one region of Europe that maintained summer growth trends was the Mediterranean, with flight activity in Italy up 2%, and in Spain 7%. The growth in Spain came from Private business jet flights, in Italy, from growth in AOC sectors. Flight activity in Eastern Europe was flat YoY. From Russia, activity subsided by -7%, although flights from Europe to Russia were flat YoY. Transatlantic activity was also flat, while inbound flights from Africa were well up this month. Overall AOC activity was very slightly down this month, but business jet AOC flights grew 2% YoY. AOC activity is getting a considerable boost this year from the larger operators expanding their fleets, especially in ULR, SMJ and LJ segments. “October was down YoY and posted the lowest October monthly activity for several years,” noted Richard Koe, Managing Director of WINGX. “But the declining trend was exaggerated by the significant fall in turboprop and piston activity. The underlying business jet activity was flat, and business jet charters continued to grow.” MI www.wingx-advance.com 

JETNET Q3 2016 Used Aircraft Market Review

JETNET released the September 2016 and the first nine months (YTD) results for the pre-owned business jet, business turboprop, helicopter and commercial airliner markets in 2016… Comparing September 2016 with September 2015, business jets and turbine helicopters showed the largest increases in fleet percentage ‘For Sale’ compared to the other markets. Generally, inventories of pre-owned business jets ‘For Sale’ have increased and are now above the 2,400 mark. Business jets are showing a decline (2.2%) in pre-owned sale transactions in the first nine months of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. Q1 and Q2 were up 4.4% and 1.9%, respectively. Furthermore, business jets are taking less time to sell (11 fewer days) than last year. However, there was a 5.6% decrease in average asking price. Business turboprops, by comparison, increased 5.4% in sale transactions, with no change in asking price. Piston helicopters saw a double-digit decline in sale transactions YTD, at 19.6%, while turbine helicopters recorded a 7.0%

decline in sale transactions. Both turbine (up 9.9%) and piston (up 2.9%) helicopter segments showed increasing asking prices compared to last year. Commercial jet YTD sale transactions, at 1,393, are trailing business jets, at almost 1,800 sale transactions. In all, for

the first nine months of 2016 there were 6,147 pre-owned commercial and business jets, turboprops and helicopters sold. This is an increase of 99 (or 2%) more sale transactions compared to 2015.  MI www.jetnet.com

Q3 2016 Avionics Sales Report In the first nine months of 2016, total worldwide Business & General Aviation avionics sales amounted to more than $1.6bn, notes AEA. That’s a 6.2% decrease in YoY sales compared to the first nine months of 2015... Avionics sales during Q3 2016 came to almost $549m, a 5.7% decrease compared to Q3 2015 (almost $582m).

Of the more than $1.6bn in sales during the first nine months of 2016, 53.2% ($884m) came from forward-fit (avionics equipment installed by airframe manufacturers during original production) sales. By contrast, the retrofit (avionics equipment installed after original production) market amounted to 46.8% (over $779m) of sales during the first nine months of the current year.

According to the companies that separated their total sales figures between North America (US & Canada) and other international markets, 66.6% of sales in the first nine months occurred in North America, while 33.4% took place in other international markets. “It is disappointing that total worldwide sales have decreased in each of the first three quarters of the current year compared to those same time frames one year ago,” said AEA President Paula Derks. “Although the US market has seen the equipage pace pick up slightly for avionics installations to meet the FAA's ADS-B Out mandate that has not translated into an uptick in overall avionics sales. Last year, the strongest period for sales was Q4, so it will be interesting to note whether that lateyear surge continues again this year.” MI www.aea.net/marketreport

Pre-Owned Bizjet Market Weakens in 2016 The pre-owned business jet market is showing signs of malaise in 2016 with the number of transactions slowing overall, prices dipping and inventories increasing, according to industry analyst Amstat. The turboprop market appears only marginally better than the business jet market, with relatively flat transactions, Amstat reported in its latest Business Aircraft Resale Market Update Report. The percentage of business jets that have turned over declined from 7.4% of the fleet in the first three quarters of 2015 to 7.1% in the same period this year. Inventories for all business jet segments climbed in the first nine months, with more of the available aircraft representing newer jets. According to the Amstat report, 10.8% of the heavy jet fleet is available ‘For Sale’, compared with 10.4% at the beginning of the year. Available inventory for medium jets also is up by 0.4% since the beginning of the year, with more newer models available. At 11.8%, the light jet inventory also is up from the beginning of this year, but is the same as this time last year. Average asking price, meanwhile, is down 6.6% for heavy jets, to $13.9m, and 7.8% for medium jets, to $3.4m. Light jet prices, however, have climbed 6.7%, to an average of $1.7m.

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition Table A

An Asset Insight market analysis conducted on October 31st, 2016 covering 91 fixed-wing models, and 1,976 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’, revealed the following… Values for tracked aircraft models improved 1.6% since last month, but they are still 7.6% lower than twelve months ago. Only Medium Jets lost ground, as Ask Prices fell -3.8% over the past 30 days (and -15.9% during the past 12 months). Large Jets gained 2.8%, Small Jets 0.8% and Turboprops 1.0%. Over the past twelve months, Large Jet Ask Prices have fallen -6.1% while Small Jets have enjoyed a 21.3% increase. Turboprops have seen a -2.2% reduction.

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

Overall Asset Quality remained ‘Excellent’, with Maintenance Exposure remaining just below the 12-month high figure. Specifically: • •

The Asset Insight Quality Rating improved, for the third consecutive month, to a record high 5.401 from last month’s 5.361, on our scale of -2.5 to 10. The tracked fleet’s average Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) improved/decreased to $1.473m (incrementally better than September’s 12-month high/worst figure of $1.475m).

Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

Our tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio (an aircraft’s Maintenance Exposure divided by its Ask Price) posted a slight improvement at 54.2% versus last month’s 54.9%. We consider any ETP Ratio over 40% to represent excessive Exposure in relation to Ask Price, and the tracked fleet’s figure has been above 40% for the past 22 months. Large Jets posted the best/lowest figure at 41.1% (the group’s worst figure during the past twelve months), followed by Turboprops at 44.2%, Small Jets at 62.6% and Medium Jets at 62.8% (the group’s worst 12-month figure).

Market Summary

Over the past twelve months, Small Jets is the only group to post an Ask Price increase as well as a 10.1% improvement in ETP Ratio. While the Ask Price increase might appear artificial, Buyers should keep in mind that Small Jets registered the least deterioration between Ask and final Transaction Value last quarter (8.2%). Additionally, at $716k, Maintenance Exposure has improved over the past three months from its 12-month worst figure of $781k posted in July, and is now only $60k above the group’s lowest 12-month figure. We believe Sellers have an opportunity to monetize their aircraft’s Maintenance Equity during the last few weeks of this year, while Buyers can acquire “Outstanding” quality aircraft at prices that have remained within a narrow trading band. On the other end of the spectrum, Medium Jets have lost nearly 16% of their value during the past twelve months, with Ask Price presently sitting at the group’s 12-month low point. Compounding the problem, Maintenance Exposure is currently near the worst figure for the past twelve months, leading to the group’s worst/highest ETP Ratio for the period. Put succinctly, Buyers should be able to utilize these facts to structure advantageous transactions, but only if they do their homework sufficiently well to differentiate between “good value” and “low price”. Incorrectly accounting for future maintenance can lead to some rather unfortunate financial events.  MI www.assetinsightinc.com

Jetcraft Sees Strengthening Market Jetcraft sees aircraft manufacturers increasingly focusing their research and development budgets on higher-end products… After a long stretch in the doldrums, the business jet market is beginning to see a return to normalcy in some sectors, according to the Jetcraft forecast, which dialed back its projection for the number of business jet deliveries in the next 10 years to 7,879, worth $248bn, from 8,755 in its inaugural forecast last year). Historically, demand for new business jets outside North America has accounted for 30 percent of deliveries, but over the past decade that changed, with non-North American markets accounting for half of the deliveries with demand fuelled by high oil and gas prices and favorable exchange rates against the US dollar. Jetcraft’s forecast sees a continuing return to the historical model as those conditions have reversed. Through 2025, the company sees North America accounting for 60 percent of new bizjet deliveries (4,727 aircraft), up 6% from last year’s forecast. Europe’s share of the delivery forecast grew by 1% YoY. The report notes that short-term deliveries will be hampered as the contribution of the emerging market economies wanes in response to lower oil and gas prices and less favourable US dollar exchange rates, indicating that gains worldwide will come at the expense of Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Russia/CIS, which see a decline of 7% in this year’s forecast. Projected demand in the Middle East and Africa remains stable at three percent each for the next 10 years, according to Jetcraft. “When other markets are down and North America is up, it balances our market overall,” noted Jetcraft president Chad Anderson, highlighting the good news in the report. “Emerging markets are extremely important, but we see North America continuing to lead the pack in terms of demand over the 10-year period.” Jetcraft’s forecast calls for delivery of 688 business jets this year, rising steadily to a peak of 932 in 2021, before the next trough of 693 deliveries in 2024. Jetcraft sees aircraft manufacturers increasingly focusing their research and development budgets on higher-end products. “This is the OEMs that do a good job of listening to their installed base of clients, telling us that the world is still favoring larger-cabin aircraft in general terms, so you are seeing that segment grow in activity and deliveries over the life of the forecast,” said Anderson.

“As businesses get more global, there’s more demand to go beyond North American shores. The OEMs are investing millions and millions of dollars in that larger class of aircraft for the foreseeable future.” Jetcraft predicts the Bombardier Global 7000 will enter service in 2018, followed a year later by the Global 8000. It predicts a new Gulfstream flagship, the G750, will debut in 2020; Cessna’s Hemisphere will arrive on the market in 2022; and a Dassault Falcon 9X, Embraer Legacy 700, Bombardier Challenger 700 and Gulfstream G400 will be introduced in 2023.

Pre-Owned Market

While Jetcraft notes that the inventory of jets for sale remains below the 13% benchmark, there is little evidence that residual values for five-year-old aircraft are on the rise. According to Anderson, most new aircraft purchased in the last five years came at a discount, a practice he believes continues in some cases today. MI www.jetcraft.com

Finance Enquiries Increase Global Jet Capital reports a strong increase in enquiries to finance mid- to heavy private jets. Enquiries during Q3 2016 were 59% higher than Q2 2016, and 240% higher than the same period last year… As much as $17.5bn of funding is estimated to be needed in 2017 for business jet deliveries, according to Global Jet Capital, which estimates that around 27% of this amount will be raised by high net worth individuals, and the rest evenly split between private and

publicly listed companies. Meanwhile, the number of business jets being delivered globally fell by -4.7% in Q1 2016, compared to the same period in 2015. Research from Global Jet Capital reveals that 16% of Business Aviation professionals believe a lack of finance has contributed significantly to the decline. Among that group 41% believe this has had a slight negative impact on deliveries, while only 36% believe it has had no influence. “A lack of available finance for those

looking to buy mid- to heavy business jets was one of the main reasons we entered this market,” said Dave Labrozzi, COO, Global Jet Capital. “Some of the traditional lenders were not in a position to meet demand, despite many of the requests for finance being attractive for lenders. “We have over $1 billion to lend and with a positive long term outlook for the Business Aviation market, we are optimistic for the future.” MI www.globaljetcapital  continued on page 38

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Ten Year Business Aviation Forecast Summaries NBAA-BACE 2016 heralded ten-year Business Aviation Forecasts from both Honeywell and JETNET, reflects Mike Potts. Honeywell predicts a market of 8,600 aircraft worth an anticipated $255bn, while JETNET forecasts 7,380 units worth $219bn. Where do the differences lie? Honeywell’s prediction of 8,600 new aircraft deliveries worth $255bn represents a drop of about 6.52% from the 9,200 aircraft forecast a year ago, and a 5.5% drop in the $270bn in billings since Honeywell’s 2015 forecast. This was the fourth year in a row that Honeywell has told us not to expect things to improve anytime soon. Indeed, it was five years ago in 2012 that Honeywell rather famously said “flat is the new normal” - a prediction that has proved to be stunningly accurate. And while it didn’t use that term again, the latest Honeywell forecast says essentially that – a weak finish to this year, followed by another flat

or slightly down year in 2017. Improvement is only expected in the 2018 timeframe. Honeywell says in the recent forecast that we can expect to see sales of 9,200 aircraft worth $270bn over the next 10 years if we include Business Liners in the mix. That seems like a bit of a reach, however, as Business Liners only accounted for 16 units last year according to the General Aviation Manufacturers’ Association and would have to average 60 units per year for the next decade to make Honeywell’s numbers work. JETNET iQ’s forecast, meantime, is based on a rolling quarterly sample that annually collects data from more than 2,000 business aircraft operators. (Honeywell’s forecast is based on an annual survey of 1,500 operators around the world.) Unfortunately, JETNET’s forecast is less optimistic than Honeywell’s, and its total 7,380 projected units worth $219bn

already includes airliner-based business jets.

Honeywell Specifics

Honeywell says its data reflect a strong upturn from last year when 22% of the operators surveyed said they were contemplating replacement or expansion of their fleets. This year 27% reported they were anticipating replacement or additions, but those additions were likely to come later in the survey period. Nonetheless, this represents the first increase-over-prior-year in Honeywell’s data since 2006. (The replacement/expansion total peaked at 40% in 2009, just after the strongest year in business jet sales history when 1,317 jets were delivered and the market was in a state of high exuberance. More typically these numbers are in the mid-20% to low-30% range, so this year’s 27% bodes well for improvement in the years ahead.)

So how could purchase plans be up yet the current forecast be reduced from last year? Several countries that have been good business jet markets are currently suffering with depreciated currencies as well as social and political issues. Additionally, some development programs have been delayed. Operator purchase plans are more heavily weighted to the latter part of the five-year period than Honeywell has seen previously. Finally, increased inventory in the late model used market could prompt some potential new aircraft buyers to opt for late-model used units instead.

Forecast By Region

Distribution of business aircraft sales will favor the North American market over the next five years. North American deliveries will account for 65% of the world’s total (up from 61% last year). Europe will account for 14% (unchanged), while Latin America will be at 12 percent (up 6%).

Asia-Pacific will be at 6% (up 3%) and Africa 3% (unchanged).

Forecast by Aircraft Class

While JETNET’s forecast does not list deliveries by region, both theirs and Honeywell’s focus on aircraft classes, and while they see the market somewhat differently, their conclusions are clearly in parallel. Honeywell says new aircraft purchases over the next five years will comprise 57% ‘big-cabin’ jets (airliners to super-midsize), 21% ‘mid-size’ (light medium-medium) and 22% ‘small-cabin’ aircraft (personal jets to light). In terms of 2016 dollars, Honeywell thinks big cabin aircraft will account for 85% of expenditures, while midsize will claim 10% and small cabin aircraft 5%. JETNET’s findings are essentially identical in the large cabin segment, with 56.7% of unit purchases expected to be in the large cabin class. Yet JETNET differs markedly in the lower section of the

market where lighter airplanes account for 29.9%, and medium sized aircraft 13.4% of unit deliveries. The differences in total unit expectations cause JETNET to expect the large cabin aircraft to account for 86.1% of revenues, while the midsize airplanes will be 6.9% and the small cabin aircraft 7%.

JETNET Specifics

Unlike Honeywell, JETNET publishes anticipated deliveries by manufacturer. In terms of unit deliveries JETNET expects Cessna and Embraer to each account for 20% of deliveries in the next five years, Gulfstream and Bombardier to each capture 17%, Dassault 10%, HondaJet 5% and other manufacturers 11%. In revenues, that equates to: Gulfstream claiming 33%; Bombardier 25%; Dassault 15%; Cessna 10%; HondaJet 1% and other OEMs 10% (these could include Airbus, Boeing, Cirrus and ONE.

GAMA Q3 2016 Aircraft Shipment Analysis The year 2016 continues to unfold as a disappointment in the Business Aviation industry, notes Mike Potts. Particularly in the jet market, as the latest GAMA Report shows shipments are off by 3.5%, and billings down 14.4%. Mike Potts is respected industry-wide as an aviation journalist. He has worked in the communications departments of Beech Aircraft, Sino Swearingen and M7 Aerospace, and has been analyzing GAMA’s delivery reports for AvBuyer since 2003 where he has built an excellent track record for accurate shipment predictions. Contact him via mpotts1@satx.rr.com

I

n raw numbers, GAMA’s report shows 1,504 aircraft shipments for the first nine months of 2016, down from 1,558 a year ago, and down a stunning 9.67% from the 1,665 airplanes delivered during this period in 2014. Billings, meanwhile, totaled $13.4bn, down from $15.7bn last year. That’s a staggering reduction of $2.3bn. The jet market was hardest hit (down 7.7% from last year at 429 units). In 2015 a total of 465 jets were delivered in the first nine months. If the jet market continues to perform 7.7% behind last year, we are headed for a year-end jet market of 668 units, which would be the weakest since 2005.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

By contrast, GAMA reports that the turboprop market is actually ahead of last year by 1.3%, with 379 units compared with 374 a year ago. The piston market is lagging, but not nearly as badly as the jet segment. Piston deliveries totaled 696 units for the first nine months of 2016, compared with 719 in the same period a year ago (down 3.2%). “These numbers are not what we wanted to see,” noted GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce. “What is encouraging is that every GAMA airplane and rotorcraft manufacturer has a new product development program recently completed or currently underway, so optimism for the future is high.” Aircraft Index see Page 153


GAMA Dec16.qxp_GAMA DEC05 22/11/2016 12:36 Page 2

The Jet Market Looking at the specifics of the jet market, all but one jet OEM that reported deliveries in 2015 had worse results in 2016 for both Q3 and YTD. Looking at just Q3, 137 jets were delivered compared with 160 a year ago. That’s a reduction of 14.38%. Simply put, this was a lousy quarter for jet deliveries. For the second quarter in a row, Textron’s Cessna segment was the leader in jet deliver ies, with 120 units YTD, and 41 for Q3. Bombardier, which has been the jet leader throughout most of the second decade of the 21st century, had to settle for second place with 109 units YTD and 36 for Q3. For comparison, Bombardier’s total a year ago was 135 units and 43, respectively. It will be very interesting to see whether Cessna can finish the year in first place – a position it held solidly earlie r in this century but has been unable to attain in recent years. Gulfstream was in third place in deliveries at the end of Q3, both for the quarter and YTD, with 27 and 88 units respectively. Gulfstream’s results were off sharply from a year ago, when its 43 units for Q3 matched Bombardier’s total for the same period, although Gulfstream had fewer YTD sales than Bombardier in 2015, at 116 units. In the billings race, Gulfstream held a solid lead despite its reduced unit deliveries, with $4.74bn in sales. Bombardier trailed in second place with $4.07bn. Among the other fixed wing OEMs, only Textron topped the $1bn sales mark, at $1.99bn for its combined jet, turboprop and piston products.

Elsewhere: •

Embraer finished fourth in jet deliveries, with 74 units YTD, down a single unit from 75 last year, and 25 deliveries for Q3, down from 30 last year. • Newcomer Honda came fifth with 16 shipments YTD and six for Q3. (Honda’s numbers represent net gains for the periods since it only began delivering aircraft in Q4 2015.) • Dassault was sixth (although it now reports only on six-month segments). The 15 deliveries reported for the 2016 so far are down from 18 last year. • One, formerly Eclipse, reported a single de livery in the past quarter, bringing it to five units YTD matching its performance for the same nine-month period in 2015. • In the airliner-based business jet category, Boeing reported one delivery in Q3 (two for the year so far), compared with four and eight in 2015 respectively. Airbus reported no deliveries so far this year, compared with two last year, including one in the third quarter.

as it closes in on year-end, we believe jet deliveries will fail to break the 700-mark this year, and will finish 2016 at around 675 units - a big disappointment for those of us hoping to have seen an upturn by now. There was a time when we hoped for a return to the 1,000-unit-plus years of 2007-200 8, but we now believe those were aberrations, much like the 17,000-plus piston totals we saw in the late 1970s. They may never recur again. Instead we’re likely to see totals in the 700 to 750 range for the remainder of this decade and will have to celebrate an 800-jet year as a return to exceptional prosperity when that time finally rolls around again.

The Turboprop Market Contrasting with the jet market, the turboprop segment is enjoying comparatively strong results right now. GAMA reports turboprops are up 1.3%, but remember… that includes agricultural airplanes. Looking at just the traditional business turboprops, the market is actually up a healthy 3.7%! While not sensational, that’s considerably better than the jet or the piston results. The picture is even rosier if we consider just the single-engi ne turboprop segment, where the traditional category aircraft are up a very healthy 8.74% over last year, YTD. All told, traditional turboprops total 278 units YTD in 2016, including 199 singles and 79 twins, compared with 267 aircraft in 2015, comprised of 183 singles and 84 twins. You won’t find these numbers in the GAMA report because the association doesn’t list them this way. (GAMA, we believe, co ntinues to make a mistake by not segmenting the agricultural airplanes from the traditional turboprops. The two markets are very different and the presence of either segment obscures what is really going on with the other.) The turboprop trend in this latest report is mostly upward, with five of the six traditional single-engine makers up over last year for the quarter and four of the six up YTD. The tw in-engine segment is less strong, with both makers even for the quarter while one is also even YTD while the other is lagging. Single-Engine Turboprops: Pilatus leads with 61 deliveries YTD, and 20 for Q3 alone (one unit ahead of last year’s Q3, but a remarkable 23 (60.52%) ahead of 2015’s nine month total of 38 units). Cessna ran a close second YTD with 58 units, and actually led for Q3 shipments at 26 de liveries. The company was ahead of its last year quarterly total of 19 but narrowly trails its 2015 YTD total of 61.

Elsewhere:

With the jet market performing so weakly throughout 2016 so far, and appearing to lose momentum

Third place went to Daher with 32 YTD and 14 for Q3, compared with 36 for the first nine months in 2015 and 11 for Q3 2015.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T OEM SHIPMENTS

“Billings should finish the year above $20bn, but shouldn’t exceed $21bn, barring a significant upturn in Q4 jet sales.”

Quest is in fourth place YTD with 23, up from 20 last year. Quest shipped seven aircraft for Q3, making it the only turboprop OEM behind its Q3 2015 total (eight units). On the basis of just Q3, Piper would be in fourth place with a total of 10, but its YTD total is just 18, lagging the 23 reported last year, as well as being five units behind Quest’s YTD total. Pacific Aerospace brings up the rear in singleengine turboprop deliveries with four for Q3 and seven YTD (versus three and five, respectively in 2015).

Twin-Engine Turboprops: Textron’s Beechcraft unit leads all turboprop deliveries with 78 YTD and 29 for Q3. Those numbers lag Beechcraft’s 2015 results for the first nine months, when 84 shipments were made, but matched the Q3 2015 shipment total. Piaggio, meanwhile, delivered a single unit in each nine-month period for 2016 and 2015. None were delivered in Q3 of either year.

Turboprop Market Forecast So where will this vibrant turboprop market finish at the close of 2016? Anticipating a fairly typical Q4 surge, we believe it will finish in the 430-435 unit range.

The Piston Market The piston market continues to splutter along with 696 units so far in 2016, lagging 3.2% behind last year’s total of 719. Among the 13 single-engine piston OEMs, four had improved numbers YTD, two matched their prior year totals, and seven were behind their 2015 pace. Looking at just Q3, four of the OEMs were up, four were even and five were down. Deliveries in the single-engine piston segment are somewhat below last year, with 601 units YTD 2016 versus 640 a year ago (a reduction of 6.09%). Twin-engine pistons, by contrast, are actually surging with 95 units YTD, up from 79 a year ago (a gain of 20.25%). Twin-Engine Pistons: Driving the gain in twin-engine piston aircraft is Diamond’s introduction of its new DA62 twin. Combined with sales of its existing DA42, Diamond contributed a total of 52 units to this segment’s results YTD in 2016, compared with 35 for the period last year – a gain of 48.57%. Diamond delivered 17 twins in Q3 2016, up from

eight in Q3 2015 (+112.5%), driving Diamond into the lead position in piston twin deliveries by some margin. Second for piston twin deliveries was Tecnam, with 24 YTD, and eight for Q3, compared with 19 and eight respectively a year ago. Textron’s Beech unit was next with 13 YTD and four in Q3, compared with 11 and four a year ago, and Piper came fourth with six YTD and none in Q3 versus 14 and eight, respectively, in 2015. Single-Engine Pistons: Cirrus leads the single-engine piston segment by a wide margin YTD, with 226 units - up more than 10.78% from a year ago when it delivered 204. Cirrus shipped 73 units in Q3 alone, but trailed the 87 reported in Q3 2015. Textron’s Cessna unit came a distant second with 127 units YTD, although 62 Q3 shipments were much closer to Cirrus’ quarterly total. Cessna’s total YTD was significantly behind the 160 reported last year, but its Q3 total was up over 54 a year ago. Third in single-engine deliveries was Tecnam (69 YTD and 29 for Q3 2016, compared with 59 and 16, respectively, in 2015). Fourth was Piper (56 YTD and 26 for Q3 2016, compared with 41 and 13 for the same periods last year). Fifth was Diamond (46 YTD and nine for Q3 2016, versus 78 and 24, respectively in 2015). Extra was in sixth place with 20 for the YTD and six for Q3. Textron’s Beechcraft unit was seventh with 16 and six, against 18 and 6 in 2015. American Champion had 15 and six in both years. The remaining single-engine OEMs all made fewer than 10 deliveries YTD.

Piston Market Forecast If the piston market continues to perform as it has all this year, we should see piston deliveries finish in the 1,020 to 1,025 range. Anything less than 1,000 will have to rank as a big disappointment while anything over 1,050 would have to be considered reason for celebration…

Overall Market Forecast Billings should finish the year above $20bn, but shouldn’t exceed $21bn, barring a significant upturn in Q4 jet sales. While we’d all like to see improvement in 2017, most of the major forecasts don’t see things turning around for another year-or-so. Nonetheless, we can all hope for better, but don’t bet big anytime soon! View GAMA’s Q3 2016 Shipment Report on page 46

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T BUYING & SELLING

2016 vs 2015 YTD Business Jet Market Trends In this month’s JETNET >>KNOW MORE article Mike Chase & Marj Rose present the nine months Year-To-Date (YTD) market trends for New & Pre-owned Business Aircraft, comparing 2016 to 2015... e’ve stated numerous times before in this column that new aircraft orders are traditionally based on the successful sale of pre-owned aircraft. We use the term ‘coupling’ to describe the trend in which an owner offsets a new aircraft purchase with the sale of a used aircraft. ‘Decoupling’, conversely, implies that owners may be simply holding on to their existing aircraft when purchasing new aircraft. Thus, as we look at the market trends for business jets today, we will investigate whether owners are choosing to continue flying their aircraft beyond their ‘normal’ upgrade cycle. Alternatively, are they purchasing new aircraft and trading in their older jet with an OEM, or signing exclusive agreements with brokers of pre-owned aircraft with the expectation of a sale? If owners are retaining their business jets longer since the downturn began in 2008, perhaps it would help explain why the pre-owned business jets ‘For Sale’ inventory has remained at such high levels for over eight years. Over the past 24 months the pre-owned inventory has continued to increase.

W

For those who have purchased a new aircraft post-2008, they probably have done so with cash. The majority (>70%) of buyers today are cash buyers, per US FAA Financial documents. Other sellers that have held on to their pre-owned business jets hoping that the ‘Great Recession’ would be followed by the ‘Great Recovery’ (in market value terms) that is just around the corner have been waiting for several years now… Another dynamic of the market is the bifurcation of large-cabin jets, which are performing stronger than the mid- and small-cabin jet markets. Demand and pricing was more favorable in the largecabin jet market, thus ‘Decoupling’ may be more pronounced in the mid- and small-cabin markets. However, the large-

cabin market has now declined as well. We think that the bifurcation has disappeared and now we have New vs Pre-owned as a possible shift, especially with the rapid decline in residual value of new aircraft. For example, the value of a five-year-old business jet used to be 80% of its new price. Today, the 5-year old business jet’s value is likely to be nearer 50% to 60% of its new price. Additional dynamics at play could include OEM trade-in policies. As their individual order backlogs evaporated, they became more risk-adverse, thus accepting fewer trade-ins and perhaps offering less-than-favorable trade-in values. Such dynamics have certainly resulted in a “wait and see” mentality among the fence-sitters. Of course, there

Market Values

The market value of business jets has been one of the key drivers for ‘Decoupling’. Unfortunately, the rapid decline in business jet market values has not recovered, and for those owners that purchased aircraft during the pre-2008 market-peak the result has been a major economic disappointment. 54

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 153


Jetnet KnowMore New.qxp_Layout 1 22/11/2016 13:58 Page 2

has been an increase in first-time buyers who do not have a previously owned aircraft to sell. We can assume that many of the factors listed above all have played a part in this very slow and lengthy business jet market recovery since 2009.

New Business Jet Deliveries

New business jet deliveries by OEMs over the past eight years are reflected in Table A (left). YTD 2016, new deliveries are down -7.7% versus the same period in 2015. New business jet deliveries by OEM reflect that the Top Three (Bombardier, Gulfstream and Cessna) have all changed positions since 2009, with Cessna now leading the pack in business jets delivered. Textron’s Cessna is the only OEM showing an increase, up 13.2% compared to 2015, owing in part to new model introductions. Bombardier, Gulfstream and Dassault are all showing double-digit decreases versus 2015. Overall, new business jet deliveries are lower today compared to 2015, but are at the exact same level as reported in 2012 (first nine months).

Pre-owned Full Sale Transactions

Pre-owned business jet deliveries (by OEM) over the past eight years are presented in Table B (top, right). Results YTD: 2016 deliveries are down -2.2% compared to the same period in 2015; 2014 represented a record year for pre-owned business jet full retail sale transactions; and JanuarySeptember 2016 is only slightly off that pace. Note, the largest increases in used aircraft sale transactions are from Gulfstream (29 more sales than in 2015) and the Hawker Beech Premier (+11). The largest decreases in pre-owned sales (YTD 2016 vs 2015) were found among Hawkers (-32), Challengers (-24) and Dassault Falcon (-13).

CHART A: Business Jets For Sale

2005 to 2016

Higher Pre-owned ‘For Sale’ Inventory Levels

Chart A (right) shows the number and percentage of business jets ‘For Sale’ from 2005 to the first nine months of 2016. The chart is broken into four sections: PreRecession (2005-2007); Recession (2008-2009); Post-Recession (2010-2014); Current (2015-2016). The number of business jets ‘For Sale’ jumped 1,100 from 2007 to 2009, going from a 10.8% Fleet ‘For Sale’ to 16.3%. 

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T BUYING & SELLING

Then from 2009 to 2014, a decline of 580 business jets ‘For Sale’ brought us to the 11.0% fleet ‘For Sale’ level. Finally, in the current period the number of business jets has increased again (by over 200). The fleet ‘For Sale’ percentage is holding steady at 11.5%.

CHART B

Average Length of Jet Ownership

The average length of business jet ownership has increased since 2005 across all makes and models, as reflected in Chart B (right). Owners have held on to their aircraft because of the difficult economic times. Several knock-on effects have resulted in the growth in average length of ownership, including the difficulty in securing new financing; the loss of value retention in aircraft; high ‘For Sale’ inventory levels; greater average days on the market; and (positively) better reliability and maintainability of business jets. Business jet usage (flight hours) has declined since 2008, mostly because business activity in general has been stagnant.

Residual Value Analysis

In years prior to the Great Recession, the industry used a 3-4% per year depreciation schedule to gauge future values for business jets. An aircraft lifespan is established by the OEM and measured not in years but in ‘pressurization’ cycles. Each time an aircraft is pressurized during flight, its fuselage and wings are stressed. Has the residual value depreciation schedule changed today? One recent analysis suggested that there is now a higher percentage depreciation per year. The economic useful life is the period of time over which an aircraft is (or is expected to be) physically and economically feasible to operate in its intended role. Periodic maintenance and repair will be required. There is further evidence that aircraft with greater capability (e.g. range, speed and cabin volume), along with the new generation of avionics and enrollment on an hourly maintenance program, tend to retain value better. Those aircraft that do not possess these greater capabilities tend to lose their value retention.

Summary

Historically, the business jet market has been - and will continue to be - stimulated by new aircraft introductions. With each new aircraft model built there is a bump56

and-run delivery cycle that occurs. The bump comes with first deliveries of a new model and is generated by the market excitement for the new model and what it has to offer. This in turn creates a backlog of orders that tapers off over time (the run) as the OEM ramps-up production to fill that new demand. There are in excess of 16 new or derivative business jet aircraft models that have arrived (or will soon arrive) on the market, and over 30 in-production business jets. This fact, in our opinion, will help stimulate recovery and provide needed growth again in the business jet marketplace. Of course, the World and US GDP growth must be stronger, and lower jet fuel-prices could do nothing but help. The missing ingredient is confidence from aircraft buyers. They hold the key to picking up the pace in both the preowned and new business jet markets. T www.AVBUYER.com

Middle East Business Aviation Market Assessment

Is Middle East Business Aviation Up or Down? Within the Middle East, Business Aviation has been a staple of company CEOs and family conglomerates for many years. Respecting his strong

espite the ‘new norm’ of low oil prices and slow GDP growth, there remain signs to encourage observers of the Middle East Business Aviation industry. According to Mr. Sohanpal and WingX Advance, the trend for movements between the Middle East and Europe has been positive for the year. “The numbers indicate a 14.1% increase Year-toRani Singh writes about aviation. A sought after Date,” Sohanpal elaborates. “This has surprised the Journalist and author she also reports on news, foreign market since there was always a perceived affairs, politics and business correlation between government expenditure and with the world’s largest news aircraft utilization.

steadily increased year-on-year within the region. “For example, Saudi Arabia’s international and domestic flights have seen a 2.9% increase from 2014-2015 from its international airports.” Flight hours and common destinations for Middle E ast business jet owners have changed in recent times, and Sohanpal has studied the data that show an increase in the number of movements both for domestic and international flights, and may also be partly due to the strategic drive to move away from an ‘oil dependent economy’. In the case of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the 2030 initiative includes sourcing the best international partners, resulting in Aircraft Index see Page 153


Global Markets Dec16.qxp_Finance 22/11/2016 16:46 Page 2

visits to and from experts around the word. Evidence suggests Middle East investors are looking to diversify from the region and chase new opportunities, Sohanpal notes. “According to WingX data, the largest growth for 2016 has come from the business liners, up 60% YoY (Q3) between the Middle East and Europe. As noted above, this has been mainly government activity. “Interestingly, for Q3 data we’ve seen a number of movements from Beirut to Europe (800 in total). This could be due to world leaders using the city as a gateway to the region meeting counterparts. Turkey used to be the top destination from the Middle East, however this year we have seen a marked decrease.” Passengers utilizing Super-Midsize aircraft account for the next largest percentage of users, Sohanpal specifies. “And generally the split between charter and private jet movements from the Middle East to Europe was evenly matched for the first time. “This can be partly attributed to the success of the authorities in tackling the illegal ‘grey’ charter market. New changes to safety rules in Saudi Arabia have reduced the number of grey market charter flights and now require private owners to be accountable within an aircraft operating certifi cate structure.” Sohanpal expects steady growth for Business Aviation as we move into 2017, due to the heightened geo-politics within the Middle East region, alongside investor diversification and opportunities.

New Aircraft Orders?

It appears in the Middle East that there’s a direct correlation between GDP and new aircraft orders, notes Sohanpal. “What’s needed is a recovery in oil prices and an improvement in general sentiment. If that doesn’t happen, we expect the OEMs to sell less new aircraft in the region, inevitably reduce production and instead concentrate on supporting used aircraft. “That’s because prices have started to appeal to owners who are now looking for efficient and modern machines. Aircraft owners in the Middle East these days have decades of ownership experience. They’ve become more disc erning about value,” he offers. “We expect a fleet compound annual growth rate between 4-6% in the region in 2017. That will, however, be dependent on the macro-economic outlook.” Sohanpal expects a continued downward trend for large aircraft (as apparent with business liners), except in the case of government-related owners and flights.

case of price elasticity; supply and demand… “Certain long-range aircraft have seen price drops, prompting owners to seek off-market buyers within their circle of contacts. Now is a good time to buy a pre-owned aircraft. “From our perspective as one of the world’s largest specialists for long-range jets and with 16 years of Middle East experience, managing owners’ expectations is important. For sellers, it’s a challenging market, especially those with unrealistic price expectations. “We’re working very closely with our clients, and our recommendation is to be as dispassionate as possible. We advise to take a hard look at the monthly cost of ownership and be more open to reasonable offers. “Additionally, we are finding that Middle East aircraft owners are having to work much harder to attract buyers - this is because of an incorrect perception that aircraft based here may not be maintained well, due to limited local service facilities, or the possibility of continuous exposure to harsh clima tes,” Sohanpal offers. “Generally, I find that this is not the case. Most aircraft are maintained by fully-approved service centers - either in Europe or the UAE. Owners in the Middle East recognize the importance of protecting residual values.” Sohanpal has observed a number of long-range aircraft, particularly business liners, being placed ‘For Sale’ as owners suffer from low oil prices and the global ma cro-economic outlook. Of 569 business aircraft operating within the region, 13.5% of the fleet is listed as ‘For Sale’ according to JETNET data. “Perception is also a driver as owners try to project a less ostentatious stance,” he adds. “This is because

of new austerity measures put in place by some of the governments seeking to balance budgets or reduce deficits.”

2017 Outlook

“We see the use of private jets maturing as people’s perceptions of Business Aviation change from luxury to utility?”

Sohanpal’s outlook for Middle Eastern Business Aviation in 2017 is positive. “We see the use of private jets maturing as people’s perceptions of Business Aviation change from luxury to utility,” he explains. “The impact of charter portals has introduced a wider group of users to Business Aviation who would normally fly first class commercial – and as mentioned above, new safety rules have made grey market activity tougher. “I expect the next generation of Middle East buyer to be more attuned to efficiency from a business aircraft, opting for smaller aircraft to meet the needs of regional trips.” The downside of the 2017 outlook, Sohanpal notes, is that the market is becoming more price-conscious (in charter). This means that rather than being service or experientially-motivated, there is instead evidence of aggressive discounting by operators.”

The Sum of it All…?

So what is one to do if they are seeking to buy or sell used aircraft into or out of the Middle East during 2017? “Those looking to sell will need to have realistic price expectations since buyers are much more knowledgeable now and they are taking full advantage of the current market,” concludes Sohanpal. “It’s a buyers’ market - but if you are entering to buy you need to be quick! The best aircraft, if correctly priced, are being snapped up quickly!” T More from www.globaljetconcept.com

Understanding Equipage Mandates (Part 1)

The Rational that Regulatory Bodies Use to Develop Requirements for Adding or Upgrading Avionics‌ From his experience on numerous advisory committees within government and private industry, Ken Elliott explains the laborious process of determining what

equipment an aircraft must have to participate in airspace throughout the globe. egulatory authorities specify the rules by which aircraft can be operated within their flight regions. While regulations related to flight safety tend to be relatively stable, rules requiring equipment move as technology enables improved airspace management to accommodate an ever-increasing demand for transportation by air. In the US, for example, increased traffic above FL290 led the Federal Aviation Administration to implement Required Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM), which specified equipment selection and certification procedures that enabled a reduction in vertical separation from 2,000 feet to 1,000 feet between FL290 and FL410 by January 20, 2005. Prior to the imposition of RVSM requirements, which began in the late 1990, the accuracy of altimetry was insufficient to safely reduce vertical

separation of aircraft at the upper flight levels. An increase in air traffic throughout European airspace led EUROCONTROL to require the equipage of Controller Pilot Data Link Communication (CPDLC) capability for all new aircraft flying in European airspace after January 1, 2014, made possible in large part by advances in Very High Frequency datalink (VDL Mode 2) capabilities. The requirement that nearly all aircraft must have Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Mode (ADS-B-Out) by January 1, 2020 reflects a technology capable of decreasing the cost of ATC facilities. Equipage mandates may be frustrating to Directors of Aviation and aircraft owners. Operations across the North Atlantic and to destinations in Europe that were well within the capabilities of the company aircraft in the past become unauthorized by ATC due to equipage issues, and the restoration of capability demands

Avionics Dec16.qxp_Finance 22/11/2016 14:06 Page 2

investments in upgrades or added avionics. Take heart! Mandates are the result of careful thought by involved operators and dedicated government authorities working together to facilitate the safe and efficient flow of air traffic.

Operator Involvement & Eventual Consensus

For now, consensus is formed by participants from industry and contributed to by government representation. Various forums exist where everyone takes off their day job hat to focus solely on the best outcome for establishing a needed requirement. Many hours are spent by committee members working voluntarily. International representation is primarily from North America and Europe, with a sprinkling of others in the room. This process should and will expand to emerging economies later. Authorities controlling the aviation industry prefer to term “requirements” as simply “guidance”. There is some merit in that—at the end of the day, guidance is used to set the standard by which a certification or operational approval is granted. It is important to understand that consensusbased guidance is developed and published as a technical standard for the development of a product. At the same time, operational guidance is developed to facilitate a product’s use in the aircraft’s flight environment by flight crews. The following list covers representative technical guidance materials under consideration. For the most part, this represents aviation electronics-electrical aspects, as developed by RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics), an organization originally formed in 1935.

Among the topics covered by Specifications are data link protocols. • 700 Series: Characteristics defining digital systems and equipment installed on current-model production aircraft. They include definitions of form, fit, function and interface for line replaceable units (LRUs) in a federated architecture. • 800 Series: Specifications and Reports defining enabling technologies supporting the networked aircraft environment. Among the topics covered in this series is fiber optics used in high-speed data buses. These three independent sources of consensus based standards depicted above are the springboard for much of the background data used across the aerospace industry. Published data are used to develop and integrate products, as well as guide their use in flight. These data are fundamental to the many activities occurring throughout the global aviation community today. Beyond this published guidance are several non-aviation commercial standards, used for the qualification of products, components and materials. Typically, these commercial recommendations and the components developed from them are common across multiple industries. A great example is the International Standards Organization (ISO) with over 250 technical committees, worldwide.

Two examples of the many SAE Aerospace Standards Divisions follow... Aerospace Materials Division: • AMS AM Additive Manufacturing; • AMS AMEC Aerospace Metals and Engineering Committee; • AMS B Finishes Processes and Fluids Committee; • AMS CACRC Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee; • AMS CE Elastomers Committee; • AMS D Nonferrous Alloys Committee; • AMS E Carbon and Low Alloy Steels Committee; • Editorial Committee; • AMS F Corrosion Heat Resistant Alloys Committee; • AMS G Titanium and Refractory Metals Committee; • AMS G8 Aerospace Organic Coatings Committee; • AMS G9 Aerospace Sealing Committee; • AMS J Aircraft Maintenance Chemicals and Materials Committee; • AMS K Non-Destructive Methods and Processes Committee; • AMS M Aerospace Greases Committee; • AMS Metals Multi-Committee; • AMS P Polymeric Materials Committee; • AMS P17 Polymer Matrix Composites Committee; • ASEC Aerospace Surface Enhancement Committee.

The Backbone of All We Do

The backbone aspects of technology development (guided by standards) are: software, hardware, individual technology performance, format of bus data, certification and finally flight operation. Developed standards form the basis of familiar industry documents and activities, such as: • • •

ASD Avionic Systems Division: • AS-1 Aircraft Systems and Systems Integration; • AS-2 Embedded Computing Systems Committee; • AS-3 Fiber Optics and Applied Photonics Committee; • AS-4 Unmanned Systems Steering Committee; • AS-5 Position, Navigation and Timing. Next we offer a list of representative series of guidance, characteristics and specifications that primarily addresses data communication existing between airborne products. This list is developed by ARINC. Each numerical series below represents hundreds of carefully drafted documents. 68

Standards as guidance form the basis for the certification and operation of airports, traffic control, satellites, engines, airframes, cockpits and cabins. The consensus process further guides the implementation of advanced technologies used to satisfy the requirements of NextGen (US) and SESAR (Europe). NextGen and SESAR are the platforms covering core technological and operational implementation, mapped out for aircraft and infrastructure over multiple year programs. These core technologies are grouped under an ICAO term of CNS: • Communication (Data Communication DataComm/FANS/CPDLC); • Navigation (Performance Based Navigation - RNP/WAASLPV/GBAS/4D Trajectory/Low Vision); • Surveillance (Automatic Dependent Surveillance ADS-C/ADS-B/Tracking).

What to Expect because consensus-based documents are created through countless hours of sentence construction, where every word is carefully crafted. This comprehensive approach ensures that the later development of products and their flight operation will be precisely what the industry requires, as well as safe to implement. In the development and certification of products and aircraft, there are other key players beyond industry and government volunteers. Such organizational entities use standards material and act as facilitators, guiding our industry and its regulators in their exploratory path of innovation. Specifically, these organizations exist as government entities, administrations and what are sometimes called “Dot Orgs”. A visit to Washington, DC highlights the population of paid organizations that support (and lobby) government and to an extent industry, in their efforts. They are crucial to aviation, and although frequently working behind the scenes, facilitate product development. MITRE in DC is a significant participant in this regard, while NASA Langley simulates scenarios leading to guidance papers useful to the aviation sector. There are many others who operate in this way. The same scenario plays out across the world with variations on structure. However, what is key to highlight, is the role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which is the branch of the United Nations that acts as the true Global torch bearer in both standards and certification. From registration codes to emissions standards, ICAO covers most of the aviation sector. Although ICAO often leads the way, when it comes to aviation standards as well as operations and guidance material, the Organization usually follows the lead of the established committees mentioned above.

Justification & Other Considerations

The end-product of all this work provides the basis for the new technology you see at the NBAA, EBACE, LABACE, ABACE and other shows. As you step aboard for your next flight, consider the depth of effort that is expended on the development of aircraft and systems, often voluntary. 70

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

Throughout 2017, AvBuyer will be exploring the implementation of CNS and other technologies that satisfy the mandates and operational requirements of airspace regions throughout the globe. We will cover how mandates migrate to both pre-owned and new aircraft, and we will provide specific recommendations pertaining to upgrades, new aircraft implementations and operations. However, none of these technologies, as certified equipment and aircraft, can be introduced without the efforts of RTCA, SAE, ARINC, ICAO, MITRE and NASA, along with many other industry enablers. In the spirit of ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’—the more aircraft equipped, the more airspace can function as an integrated whole. The workload of Air Traffic Controllers will be less and the stress on pilots reduced. On average, flight time and fuel use will also decline. Corporate aircraft operators need to be assured that transport aircraft lobbyists do not sway the impact of NextGen/SESAR implementations in their favor. NBAA and others help to ensure equipage and operation requirements are fairly applied across the aviation sectors.

Summary

For all those who question, with justification, the requirements for new equipage, a consideration worth pondering is the depth of effort in product development. Published guidance is carefully constructed with both operators and pilots in mind. It is also developed with everyone’s interest best served, albeit with the odd sacrifice made here and there. Hopefully, knowing the extent of technical due diligence and a systems approach serving global and national airspace interests, you will have one more check mark for a positive business case to upgrade. Finally, Globalization (which often is forcing the need for mandates) will continue, including the beneficial tracking of all aircraft anywhere along with a fast-approaching Aviation Internet of Things (AIoT) and greater connectivity, the like of which has never been seen before. Aviation advancement will be served by carefully crafted standards, ensuring an exponential but safe growth in Business Aviation. T

outrigger canoes; “discovered” by Europeans sailing tall ships; and later visited by Boeing Clippers and other sea-friendly aircraft. Naturally, each nation whether large or small requires visiting aircraft, crew and passengers to adhere to the local requirements for access – permits, visas and local customs. And unlike most of the rest of the world, at most destinations no alternate airports exist outside the main entry points.

Australia

As the continent’s largest body of land, however, Australia offers a huge expanse of territory to visit and plenty of airports (more than 600). The top 10 serve the majority of the country's population: Sydney (YSYD), Melbourne (YMEL), Brisbane (YBNE), Perth (YPER), Adelaide (YADL), Gold Coast (YOOL), Cairns (YCNS), Canberra (YCBR), Hobart (YHBA) and Darwin (YDRW).

nation began requiring ADS-B in December 2013 for aircraft flying above FL290. As of February 2, 2017 all IFR aircraft must be both ADS-B capable and use some form of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) such as the US Global Positioning System (GPS). And like the rest of the world outside the US, only one form of ADS-B qualifies – 1090 Extended Squitter Mode-S transponder-based. As you'll read later, Indonesia is also an ADS-B participant – and shares traffic data with Australia. Just so you know… International travel experts recommend using a third-party service provider to work with you on permit requirements, routing instructions, customs and immigration rules, and operating curfew considerations. As we've seen before, they also recommend you start this interaction well before you plan to fly. Australia requires visas for all passengers and crew – and the documents must be in-hand before entering the country. Crew members may be able to apply for their visas (called Crew Travel Authority (CTA)) online, depending on their nationality. Crew may obtain their CTA through Australia's Advance Passenger Professing (APP) website (www.eta.immi.gov.au/UCP/login.form) or email appwebsite@immi.gov.au. This is a specific area in which a third-party service provider or groundhandling service may prove helpful. Australia also enforces security requirements on visiting operators, including a Transportation Security Program (TSP) – but, private non-revenue flights with principals/owners on board may not require a TSP providing they fly no more than four Australian flights within a 12-month period. The following types of flight, however, do require a government-approved TSP: • • •

All charter flights All private non-revenue flights (>4 per year) Cargo flights

Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Aircraft visiting Australia for demonstration and/or sales purposes.

Note that obtaining a TSP can take up to 60 days from the application, so plan accordingly. The penalties for failure to obtain a TSP include fines of up to AUD$22,000. Further important information can be found at the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure & Regional Development website: infrastructure.gov.au/security/. Operators should also be aware that Australia enforces noise regulations prohibiting Stage-2, and restricting Stage-3 conversions and factory-built Stage-3 aircraft. Slot requirements exist at some airports (including YSYD and YADL), but the curfews aren't blanket prohibitions. Propjets, for example, are allowed to operate during curfew hours. It is best to check with a ground-handling agent or third-party service provider to be sure your aircraft will not be impacted. All international arrivals face a requirement to disinfect the cabin while still in-flight; failure to comply (proof of compliance is required) will incur a post-touchdown disinfection, requiring the aircraft cabin to remain closed for 10 minutes. The recommended procedure is to spray disinfectant before starting the descent – and being prepared to show authorities the empty can upon landing. Additionally, the captain will be required to sign a document attesting to the disinfection process. Overflight permits are not required – but flight plans are; the flight plan must be submitted no later than one hour prior to departure but can be filed as much as 24 hours in advance.

Indonesia

“Short-notice permits are all but impossible except in instances requiring a flight to divert because of inclement weather...”

74

Indonesia, Australia's neighbor to the northwest, boasts thousands of islands and a population exceeding 255 million citizens. And aviation provides much of the transportation connecting those diverse islands. Access is tightly controlled, and the government requires permits for all General Aviation landings and overflights. Permits are also required for flights on airways M758 and N884 near Singapore. While the Singapore CAA controls the airspace, the airways transit Indonesian territory – so Indonesian overflight permits are needed. Figure on the standard lead-time requirements for landing and overflight permits. Experts consider Indonesia's permit process to be generally straight-forward unless you fail to adhere to all requirements mandated by the Indonesian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). In that case the CAA likely will deny your application. Permit applications require the operator to provide both arrival and departure dates, and times - and application must be submitted a minimum of three working days in advance. Expect no action on permit applications on weekends and any of the nation’s 15 holidays. Obtaining overflight and landing permits for Indonesia officially take five business days to process – but often they get finished within three business days. Regardless, the best time to apply for permits is during CAA weekday hours – Monday-Friday 0700-1700 local. Short-notice permits are all but impossible except in instances requiring a flight to divert because of inclement weather – or an air ambulance landing. Conversely, air ambulance overflights are rarely granted short-notice permits, sometimes forcing air-ambulance flights to route around Indonesia.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

Be prepared to submit all your documents with the application for landing permits. Documents required include aircraft airworthiness and registration certificates, worldwide liability insurance, and an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for charter flights. The originals of these documents must be on board the aircraft, but provide plenty of copies since three different departments within CAA review requests – as well as the military. And for those who contract with a third-party service provider, operators must present authorization proving the provider is empowered to act on their behalf. Once issued, overflight and landing permits remain valid for seven days, and confirmation numbers are provided with permit approvals. All permit confirmations must be noted in ‘Remarks’, Section 18 of your ICAO flight plan. Indonesia allows private and charter flights to operate domestic legs, but requires a special permit to do so. This nation is a prime example of how the benefits of using a ground handler can be felt (most requests will flow through the ground handler here). The CAA normally acknowledges a permit request on the day of receipt (providing the application arrived during normal business hours). The CAA will notify the applicant if something is remiss on the permit request so an operator can correct the problem. Beyond needing permits to enter the country, Indonesia has no Prior Permission Required (PPR) or airport slots for operations to any airport in Indonesia. Indonesia's Document Requirements Spelled Out: The following documents MUST be included with permit applications for all private and charter flights: With Landing Requests... a) Certificate of Airworthiness b) Certificate of Registration c) Pilot Licenses d) Air Operators Certificate (for charter flights) e) Aircraft Insurance Certificate f) Indonesian Letter of Authorization. Note: A landing permit is required, even for those Indonesian Territories located in other Flight Information Regions (FIRs). A business contact is also required, but when no business contact is available your trip handler's information can be used.

Fees in Indonesia

Indonesia's navigation fees are based on a flat rate for landing and overflight (not actual distance). Thus flying multiple stops within the country will incur higher fees than a single stop. Note, however, that multiple stops are limited to customs and immigration clearance, tech stop (fuel Aircraft Index see Page 153

uplift only) or emergency landings. Navigation fees are assessed by three different CAA departments – but the invoice you will receive won't break down each separate cost. And invoices often are slower to arrive than permits. Failure to pay will likely result in the denial of a future permit application but the Indonesian authorities will let you know if you owe overdue charges – and may even deny overflight access. For such visitors to Indonesia's islands as tourists a visa exemption is available – but the nation wants two blank pages on your passport and for it to have at least six months remaining before it expires. For other visitors, a 30-day visa-on-arrival process is available at a cost of US$35. Visitors using this approach may extend their visa for an additional 30 days for an additional $35. And their passports must have at least six months remaining before expiration. The visa-on-arrival option is available only to tourists; business visitors must apply in advance. Limited US passport holders are not eligible for the visa exemption and should apply for an Indonesian visa, via the nation's embassy. Aircraft crew must have passports valid for at least six more months, but crew visa requirements depend on the airport. If required, the visa may be obtained upon arrival.

New Zealand

The other South Pacific nation with English as its language makes it easy for visitors to obtain visas for a variety of purposes, including business stays – as long as you plan to depart before the end of three months. The limits apply to tourists as well as business visitors, but with longer stays possible. Individuals may apply online; members of a group

should follow this approach or face a paperapplication process. The same paper process applies for families planning a visit. Regardless of the visa you seek, you will be required to document your departure arrangements – something along the lines of a flight plan date and departure time for private aircraft. For aircraft, permits are required for overflight and landing of non-scheduled flights, with application to New Zealand's CAA in advance of arrival. New Zealand goes to great lengths to protect the integrity of its agricultural economy, and penalties can be expensive. Importing even small quantities of food, as well as unprocessed animal or plant materials is tightly controlled. New Zealand authorities designed these restrictions to prevent the introduction of foreign animal and plant diseases and pests. The entry process involves hand inspection of all luggage – including x-ray examinations, and exposing the luggage and packages to specially trained dogs to sniff out any contraband. Take care with any items of food you may obtain en route because the fines for failure to declare fruits and foods can be severe. That includes any in-flight meal items saved for later consumption and food refuse from the flight. These items must be in a secure garbage bag and ready for destruction. Even golf clubs and shoes, fishing gear and waders must be clean and show no signs of dirt. The best advice is to declare any items you think may cause problems - bio-security control staff may confiscate and destroy the item, but you will not have to pay a fine or face criminal prosecution and a jail term. And cabin disinfection rules apply here as well as in Australia. New Zealand spells out its disinfection requirements here: www.biosecurity.govt.nz/enter/aircraft.

Entry limitations

New Zealand restricts aircraft that do not meet Stage-3 sound levels (Stage-2 aircraft are banned exemptions available in the past are no longer an option). Two general customs declarations are required, and one must be signed by customs at the previous airport. The authorities insist upon having names, birth dates and nationalities of crew and passengers, passport numbers and expiration dates and passenger visa numbers. Overflight permits are required only for experimental aircraft and aircraft from non-ICAO member states, while landing permits are needed only for commercial airlines and for-hire charter flights. Information required for the application includes an air-taxi certificate or foreign airoperation certificate; third-party liability insurance policy; and name, address and phone number of the company/individual chartering the aircraft.

Maintenance Delays & How To Avoid Them

Who’s Fault Are They Anyway? It’s puzzling that in the dynamic relationship between OEMs, Service Centers and business jet owners there’s hesitation to smooth out the complexities, notes Andre Fodor. What are the solutions to fulfilling customer expectations when it comes to business jet maintenance? t’s interesting how new aircraft deliveries typically occur at year-end. There are several contributing factors to this, including companies realizing their profits in Q4 and determining the tax ramifications of making a large capital expenditure towards the end of the fiscal year. Here in the US, I believe the government is at fault for being ambiguous regarding valuable fiscal tools designed to motivate large purchases such as corporate aircraft; they should be available yearround to foster earlier sales and allow for more earlyand mid-year deliveries. Yet the fault doesn’t rest solely with the government. The OEMs, hungry to eliminate the

possibility of white tails on their ramps, are eager to discount pricing as the year progresses. If they were to correct their pricing from the early months of the year, there would perhaps be less hesitation from buyers to make a move earlier and sales would be spread more evenly throughout the year. The knock-on effect of the uneven spread of deliveries is less obvious, but significant. For example, aircraft tend to receive their airworthiness certificates in the same time period, which causes maintenance cycle clocks to begin ticking at the same time. So 12, 24 or 36 months later, you find many airplanes with maintenance coming due that flood the service centers with an uneven workload.

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 153


FDM Dec16.qxp_Finance 22/11/2016 14:20 Page 2

What’s the Solution?

Maintenance scheduling can be harmonized; it just takes a little coaching. By working with operators and owners, the OEM can begin to spread out the jet’s certification and balance maintenance-due cycles. This solution would reduce the strain that causes an increase in labor costs and decreases the returnto-service quality. With education, any seasoned operator will see that offsetting inspections against the rest of the fleet will generate a quicker return-to-service – and hence lower the overall costs. Another coaching opportunity comes in teaching customers how to manage their expectations. It is acceptable particularly with brand-new airplanes – for customers to show up at service centers unannounced and expect prompt attention when a critical maintenance issue causes a potential AOG situation. When that same operator decides, having arrived at the facility, to have a variety of additional squawks containing non-critical items addressed (squawks that should be kept for the scheduled maintenance events), the result will lead to unfulfilled expectations. It becomes essential for the OEM to educate the aircraft owner as to the goal of an ‘unscheduled maintenance stop’ (i.e., to return the aircraft back into ‘revenue mode’), setting a clear understanding and harmonizing expectations of the OEM and the customer. A laundry list of pocketed unscheduled squawks must therefore always be received with the caveat, “time and workload permitting”.

Missing Proactivity

Since a business jet’s maintenance clocks start ticking upon certification, it follows that the OEM has the

information to predict upcoming scheduled maintenance events. Yet there is a lack of proactive process-monitoring and forecasting of due-dates in order to schedule upcoming work with customers. Through pre-planning, an OEM and its service center network can gain business and spread workload through its service centers to help clear bottlenecks. Incentives may be required to persuade customers With a focused approach to move their aircraft to a more distant (but less busy) on global excellence and shop, but again – through education – the benefits creativity, Andre Fodor has can be explained quite tangibly. managed flight operations On the flip side of the coin, however, customers for the U.N. and Flight must also be prepared to plan.

Sausage.

So, Who’s At Fault?

It’s puzzling that in such a dynamic relationship between OEMs, Aircraft Maintenance Providers, Service Centers and Jet owners, there’s hesitation to reduce complexities. In a good marriage you have to invest, modify, tailor and settle many times as the relationship changes and matures. Aircraft ownership is no different – requiring long-term investment and commitment. Communication becomes essential. When nurtured coordination between all parties will fulfil your expectations and further your business through growth and positivity. That’s got to be worth working for!

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T MAINTENANCE

Understanding Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization When the topic of CAMO arises, it can be natural for operators of business aircraft outside of Europe to tune-out. By doing so, those operators could be missing a trick, warns AMAC Aerospace’s Waleed Muhiddin. Here’s why… or aircraft registered in an EASA-controlled European country, or even Equatorial Guinea, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and United Arab Emirates, enrollment with a CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization) is mandatory. Yet even where enrollment on a CAMO program isn’t mandatory (for example the Isle of Man, most African countries, Aruba and the United States), CAMO can still be highly beneficial to some operators. The key benefit is that the aircraft will operate in a technicallycontrolled environment, meaning that all necessary maintenance tasks are controlled by the CAMO and performed in their due time by an approved MRO center. Due to regular checks and supervision of the various maintenance tasks by the contracted CAMO, the CAMO is able to issue or renew the Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC) for all EASA-registered aircraft – or in the case of a third-countryregistered aircraft the authorities will renew the Certificate of Airworthiness. In the event of an aircraft being sold, the relevant authority will issue the Certificate of Airworthiness for Export (only needed if the aircraft will be transferred to the registry of a third-country). Indeed, benefits can be realized by a CAMO-enrolled operator at time of sale, since all technical records will have been kept to the highest standard, thus enabling a smooth, efficient technical transfer to occur with the aircraft’s new owner, while also ensuring that the value of the aircraft will be kept at the highest level.

F

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

Documentation set-up and archiving is a big part of any CAMO program, enabling a seamless technical transfer between CAMO and Operator.

Enrolling on a CAMO

In order to transfer an airplane onto a CAMO program, an operator needs to first contact the approved CAMO organization, before signing a contract outlining the CAMO procedure. The CAMO organization then establishes a maintenance program that will need to be approved by the relevant aviation authority. With a detailed CAMO contract, the operator will be given an overview of all occurring costs. The costs of enrollment on a CAMO program depend on various factors, including, for example, the size of the aircraft. From experience, however, at AMAC we see the advantages and savings of a CAMO exceed any costs incurred from enrolment. At AMAC, we actually recommend any operator to enroll on a CAMO program, since regardless of the registry an operator flies under they will need to follow basic CAMO guidelines even if the CAMO program itself is not mandatory.

In Summary

The functionality of a CAMO should ensure all due maintenance tasks are done in a timely manner so that the aircraft is in a technically-controlled environment and is airworthy at any given time. Having a third-party oversee your aircraft maintenance needs can be very appealing to some aircraft operators, irrespective of the part of the world where they are based.

Keys to Improving Aviation Safety Management Flight Departments Need to be More Proactive in Establishing Safety Standards. For ten years the Business Aviation industry has had the opportunity to familiarize with safety management requirements. Despite this, there are several areas of SMS still needing better application within many flight departments, warns Mario Pierobon... ailure to isolate the safety manager and his/her initial and recurrent qualification from other duties is still being overlooked by too many flight departments in Business Aviation. It’s not uncommon to find the role of safety manager simply being attributed to someone who already holds another position within the flight department, and who is thusly unable to give the necessary energy and time to safety management. This lack of focus can be exacerbated by the limited actual safety management practice the elected safety manager may have. For example,

F

82

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

ICAO Safety Management Manual (SMM) outlines several criteria that qualify a person as a safety manager, including: • Full-time experience in aviation safety in the capacity of an aviation safety investigator, safety or quality manager or safety risk manager; • An extensive knowledge of SMS and the completion of appropriate SMS training; • An understanding of risk management principles and techniques to support the SMS • Experience implementing and/or managing an SMS; • Experience and qualifications in aviation accident/incident investigation and human factors; • Experience and qualifications in conducting safety/quality audits and inspections; • Ability to be firm in conviction and to promote a just and fair culture whilst also advancing an open and non-punitive atmosphere for reporting.

Safety Dec16.qxp_Finance 22/11/2016 14:30 Page 2

The Ideal vs The Reality

The above criteria, although broad, are obviously very demanding. At the start of SMS implementation it was almost impossible to source professionals meeting all of these criteria, both within business aircraft organizations themselves, or within the wider industry. Today, however, many such skills should have been proficiently mastered by safety managers while their organizations ought to be benefitting from their solid expertise. Often the reality is different – many safety managers having unrealized expertise potential. This is in part due to the fact that aviation authorities aren’t being demanding in terms of safety management consistency like they are with operational and training matters. Thus flight departments are not compelled to exploit the full potential for safety improvements thorough SMS implementation. Another key hindrance preventing the ideal from being achieved centers on the fact that the training, experience and qualification of the safety manager and of the other safety professionals (where applicable) are not regulated in the same way that requirements for flight, cabin and technical staff are. Operational and maintenance professions – all key to safety within the flight department – are regulated by rigid training requirements, yet the safety manager, whose contribution to safety is essential, is regulated only in terms of qualification criteria. No requirements exist regarding Currency or Recency as they relate to specific safety management efforts. Ticking the boxes is always possible, but a requirement for safety managers to demonstrate that they have undertaken a certain amount of work over a certain period of time in order to remain ‘current’ in their role would make a more compelling case for organizations to implement SMS more consistently.

management practice. In parallel, an improved awareness of the whole organization as to its safety-related strengths and weaknesses will emerge. The relative isolation of the safety manager is something that can be addressed quite inexpensively. The focus is all about establishing priorities - namely developing the safety manager’s competence for the benefit of the whole organization. The return on safety performance will pay for itself! T

“The relative isolation of the safety manager is something that can be addressed quite inexpensively.”

Flight Departments: Be Proactive!

Nothing prevents an individual organization from defining its own safety management currency/recency targets, including those in its own training system. As a matter of fact this is simply ‘good practice’ and is in line with another SMS requirement for the definition of safety performance targets.

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.

Aircraft Performance & Specifications Turboprops

T

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

Tel: +44 (0) 208 255 4000; Email: editorial@avbuyer.com. © 2011 Conklin & de Decker Associates, Inc., P.O. Box 1142, Orleans, Massachusetts, 02653, Tel. 508-255-5975, www.conklindd.com

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

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

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

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

ow does Bombardier’s Challenger 350 and Gulfstream’s G280 compare in the market today? Across the following paragraphs, we’ll consider various productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size) to get an overview. The Challenger 350’s lineage dates back to the Paris Air Show in 1999 in the form of the Bombardier Continental. The Continental was a "clean sheet" design, assembled in Bombardier's Learjet plant in Wichita. Following much debate about its category (Learjet, Challenger or Global) the Continental was renamed in September 2002, and in 2003 the Challenger 300 received FAA type certification. Entry

into service followed in January 2004. 457 Challenger 300s were delivered between 2004 to 2014. Launched at EBACE in May 2013 the upgraded Bombardier Challenger 350 offers different engines, new winglets, a different interior and new avionics compared to the Challenger 300 it replaced on the production line. For example, the aircraft’s entertainment and communications system includes two 22-inch monitors attached to the cabin bulkheads, and ports for syncing the system with laptops and phones. Bombardier says that it launched the Challenger 350 to allow it to compete with new models to the market, such as the G280, Dassault’s Falcon 2000, Aircraft Index see Page 153

Embraer’s Legacy 500 and Cessna’s Citation Longitude. Today, there are 100 whollyowned Challenger 350s and an additional 45 in fractional ownership (total fleet - 145 in operation worldwide). Sixteen (11%) of the Challenger 350 fleet are leased. By continent, North America has the largest fleet percentage (61%) followed by Europe (32%), accounting for a combined 93% of the total Challenger 350 in-operation fleet. The percentage of Challenger 350 fleet currently ‘For Sale’ is 3.4% with all of these under an exclusive broker agreement. Average days on the market for a Challenger 350 ‘For Sale’ currently stands at 252 days, according to JETNET data.

Payload & Range

The data contained in Table A (top, left) are published in the B&CA, May 2016 issue, but 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 Challenger 350 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ (1,800 lbs) is more than that offered by the Gulfstream G280 (1,000 lbs). Additionally, Table A shows the fuel usage by each aircraft (sourced from Aircraft Cost Calculator). There is a mere 2% difference in the fuel usage of the Challenger 350 at 261 and the Gulfstream G280 at 256 gallons per hour (GPH). Thus, the Gulfstream G280 is marginally more frugal.

Cabin Cross-Sections

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Challenger 350 cabin volume measures 1,002 cu. ft., with 23.7 ft. length. The Gulfstream G280 offers less volume (888 cu. ft.), with a much longer cabin (32.2 ft.).

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

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 applicable recovery period (see Table C, middle 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 du ring each year of the applicable recovery period.

Asking Prices & Quantity

The current used market for the Challenger 350 aircraft shows a total of five aircraft ‘For Sale’ with none displaying an asking price. However, factoring used Challenger 300s as well as Gulfstream G280s and G200s currently ‘For Sale’ into the market offerings should be informative. Table E (top) shows the various models in this market space that total nearly 950 business jets in operation, with 89 (9.4%) ‘For Sale’. Only 33 present an ask price, however, which range between $2.695m$15.950m. While each serial numbe r is unique, the Airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variations in price. Of course, the final price remains

In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, aircraft used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year r ecovery period or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a sixyear recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table D (previous page) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2016 model Challenger 350 business jet in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods, assuming a new retail price of $26.673m, per Vref Pricing guide.

Productivity Comparisons

The points in Chart E (above) 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. Others may choose different parameters, but serious business

aircraft buyers are usually impr essed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the Challenger 350 displays a high level of productivity. The Challenger 350 shows a higher purchase price and greater productivity compared to the Gulfstream G280. The Gulfstream G280 has a very slight operating cost advantage but with a smaller cabin volume. The Challenger 350 is currently faring well on the used aircraft for sale market, showing monthly full retail sale transactions that currently average five jets per month, compared to Gulfstream’s G280 (average of two per month). Before choosing which aircraft is best for their own flight

department, potential operators should weigh their mission requirements with facts presented in this comparison article.

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon 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. The Challenger 350 continues to be popular today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Challenger 350 will continue to do well in the new and used jet markets for the foreseeable future. T Aircraft Index see Page 153

How to Choose the Best BizAv Consultant (Part 2)

Obtain the Best and Highest Value from Consultants. Having previously discussed working with an aviation consultant on well-defined tasks, this month David Wyndham considers questions of working with consultants on open-ended questions and tasks in Business Aviation... pen-ended questions and tasks in Business Aviation often involve increased complexity, which can lead to difficulty in establishing a firm price when engaging the services of an aviation consultant. Take the example of contracting a chosen consultant to assist you through the aircraft selection and negotiations process, or to monitor the aircraft through outfitting and delivery. In each case, the consultant can act in an advisory role, or as an agent of the buyer with limited responsibilities. Furthermore, these tasks, no matter how well defined, are dependent on outside variables beyond the consultant’s ability to control. It is in the management of these outside variables that the time required can be hard to limit.

Buyer Consultants

Let’s assume the buyer consultant will advise and recommend pricing and develop negotiation strategies with you, the buyer. If the aircraft selected is a popular model that’s in high demand there will be limits to what can be negotiated – less so if the aircraft model is less popular on today’s market. Regardless, a good buyer-broker should be up front with what can and cannot be expected. While there are few sole buyer-brokers in aviation, other options exist. Some pre-owned aircraft brokers, for example, will advertise buyer-brokering services or aircraft needs planning. They should know the market well as they broker aircraft for other owners; however they need to be clear as to how they handle potential conflicts of interest between representing you as the potential Aircraft Index see Page 153

Understandably, doing this monitoring and possible intervention for a $50m aircraft is not inexpensive (although the ultimate cost will depend on their length of stay at the factory).

buyer, and their seller-clients. One industry leading buyer-broker I know sets firm prices for their services, dependent on how far into the process they go (from identifying the aircraft options right through to final delivery). Others may bill as you go. If the best value aircraft is found early, the cost will be less than if the search becomes lengthy and difficult.

Outfitting Consultants

There are also agents who will represent you though the outfitting of your aircraft. This is commonly done with new aircraft, mostly of the large cabin variety. In this arrangement, the agent will monitor your aircraft through the final stages of construction including painting and the outfitting of the aircraft. They do this by being present, on site. These people are paid to live with your aircraft, verifying that any equipment and options you specified are exactly what is being provided. The OEMs tend to do a very good job, but the time to discover that the color of the seating and carpet is not correct is during installation, not on the day of delivery! Your agent will manage and direct the acceptance flight, too, and will have a checklist to follow and verify that every single system, accessory, switch and light is working correctly. Any discrepancies will be noted and fixed as necessary.

“ These people are paid to live with your aircraft, verifying that any equipment and options you specified are exactly what is being provided.”

Legal and tax consulting tend to be focused on a set of desirable outcomes that require varying amounts of time to accomplish. In this area, I recommend aviation-skilled experts to work with your in-house counsel or CPA. What may make sense from a business or IRS perspective may not work from a regulatory perspective. Just because an aircraft is based in one state or province does not mean it is no longer subject to taxes and fees in other locations. Different authorities, for example, have varying definitions for what constitutes commercial operations. Your Legal and Tax Consultants will manage risk while retaining ability for you to use your aircraft in a productive manner. These arrangements tend to favor open-ended discussions and billing.

Summary on Open-Ended Contracts

The biggest caveat in open-ended contracts is the management of expectations within the confines of a budget. When Conklin & de Decker does open-ended consultancy, we try to set up boundaries as to what will and will not be done, and establish a reasonable not-to-exceed amount for the expected work. You will need to work with your chosen consultant to define a successful outcome at the start of the project along with the expected deliverables and billing schedule. Be as specific as possible with areas of authority and responsibility. Open-ended arrangements are often necessary and appropriate in the arena of Business Aviation. By defining desired outcomes and setting ground rules, you reduce the likelihood of surprises or bills that far-exceed what was expected at the outset.

Importing Used Business Aircraft (Part 2 of 3)

How to Deal with Commonly Encountered Issues. Attorneys Keith Swirsky and Chris Younger continue their examination of importing into the USA a business aircraft that does not have an N-registration. hen importing a non-US registered aircraft from another country, the purchasing company must consider the timing of aircraft deregistration from the foreign registry. The deregistration process sometimes takes several days or longer, depending upon the country where it is registered. The FAA will not register the aircraft in the United States until it receives confirmation directly from the foreign registry that the aircraft has been deregistered. Consequently, a buyer usually wants the aircraft to be deregistered from the foreign registry and the notice of deregistration to be delivered to the FAA prior to the closing, so that the aircraft can be registered in the US at the time of closing and delivery. The seller may also be required to obtain governmental/regulatory approvals to sell and export the aircraft. Obtaining these approvals can be time-consuming and add additional unanticipated

expense for both the buyer and the seller. Foreign sellers may refuse to deregister their aircraft until the buyer has paid the purchase price in full at closing. This is most likely to occur if the seller is concerned that the buyer may default or back out of the deal after the aircraft has been deregistered or if the aircraft is currently subject to commercial financing. In the event of a buyer default after deregistration, the seller could be unable to move the aircraft until it is re-registered in its foreign home country, which can take several days or longer, depending on the country. In such cases, an acceptable compromise could be to have the entire purchase price placed in escrow prior to deregistration, together with an irrevocable escrow instruction letter, jointly executed by buyer and seller, requiring the escrow agent to deliver the purchase price to the seller as soon as the foreign registry delivers a notice of deregistration to the FAA.

“...the ability to receive financial disclosure to ensure that the buyer may rely on such a guaranty and enforce it is difficult.�

Determining Ownership/Title

Also of significance, determining the ownership and status of clear title to a foreign-registered aircraft can be tricky. In one transaction, a client was purchasing an aircraft that was: i) ii) iii)

Owned by a company formed in one country, which was owned by other companies that were formed in several different countries; Registered in a third country; and Based in yet another country.

Needless to say, the process of verifying the identity of the aircraft owner, confirming that the aircraft owner (and its owners) were all bona fide individuals or companies in good standing (and were not on any United States governmental blocked persons lists) and that the aircraft was completely free of liens at closing, was challenging, time consuming and expensive. The process required the assistance of attorneys based in several countries. Moreover, if the buyer is financing the purchase of the aircraft, the lender may impose requirements regarding title and authority to sell that are expensive or possibly impossible to meet.

Still More Challenges

A related problem, which may be remote but costly if it occurs, emanates from the inability to recover damages from a foreign seller after an aircraft is purchased if a title or transfer issue arises. As in most aircraft transactions, the seller is typically a special purpose entity that has no assets other than the aircraft it is selling. Obtaining a guaranty from a financially solvent affiliated party is usually difficult, and obtaining a personal guaranty from a wealthy individual principal is nearly impossible. Furthermore, the ability to receive financial disclosure to ensure that the buyer may rely on such a guaranty and enforce it is difficult. Although title insurance is available to mitigate some of this exposure, there is no title insurance policy currently available that covers all of the risks associated with these issues. Furthermore, the seller and its affiliates may be in a location where there is no recourse to normal legal remedies. Therefore, a company needs to have advisors with close connections to competent foreign advisors who are able to conduct all the necessary due diligence regarding these issues and render advice or an opinion regarding them.

War Risk and TRIA

Purchase of the insurance coverage known as War Risk Perils is a no-brainer. For a small premium, you have protection for roughly 25 excluded war perils. If the premium to include TRIA coverage is not expensive (and it usually isn’t), I would certainly recommend buying coverage for the advantages it offers (e.g., occurrence basis, coverage trigger and cancellation provisions).

Rotary-wing aircraft are much more complex and have many more moving parts than the typical business jet. An engine or part failure in a helicopter usually is a much more critical event. Helicopters can be, and are operated safely and efficiently, but their operating regime presents a much larger exposure for insurance underwriters—a fact that is reflected in considerably higher premiums and deductibles.

Insurance Issues for Dealers & Their Clients

Lay-Up Insurance

As a general rule, best practice dictates that each party to a transaction be responsible for their own insurance. Occasionally there are circumstances when it makes sense to insure a seller’s aircraft

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – December 2016

www.AVBUYER.com

The lay-up credit is a fairly standard coverage on policies for business aircraft. Keep this coverage in mind and be sure to notify your broker if your aircraft will be down for an extended period due to Aircraft Index see Page 153

a maintenance event. Once the aircraft is returned to service you will be eligible to receive a premium credit based on the number of days it was out of service and not flying.

Cuba

The real deterrent to flying your aircraft to Cuba is not your insurance policy but the governmental rules that have to be followed in order for your insurance company to respond and pay for a claim that occurs while in Cuba. Call your aviation insurance broker and have them confirm to you in writing what coverage would apply under your policy for a trip there.

Insurance Time Bomb

Unfortunately, the only available test to discover if your policy was constructed properly is to actually have a loss. That’s when the counter on the time bomb may hit zero. What is your defense? • •

First, since all aviation insurance brokers are paid exactly the same commission, hire the best. Second, when it’s renewal time, don’t give short shrift to the process. Take the time to think deeply about your exposures, whether you have adequate liability limits, if the hull insured value is appropriate, are your pilots approved and properly trained, have contracts related to your aviation operation been reviewed, and is the named insured clause adequate?

and should not blindly relinquish control of your asset to even the best management firm; you must consider the multiple exposures that you have. You would be smart to involve your own aviation insurance broker to help you navigate the complex wording of a management contract and help verify that all the insurance bases have been covered.

Lending Your Aircraft to Friends

Letting someone use your aircraft is a whole lot different than tossing a friend the keys to your car. The stakes are exponentially higher. Unfortunately, part of being successful is protecting what you have been able to build or acquire over time. I don’t mean to imply you should never do it, only that you at least consider the potential consequences of your generosity before saying ‘yes’. T

These are just a few of the many critical areas that need to be considered.

FAR Violations & Insurance

There is a common misconception among aircraft owners that in the event of an accident, insurance companies can deny a claim if there was a violation of the Federal Air Regulations [FARs]. Most corporate aircraft policies if negotiated properly are very broad. That doesn’t mean you won’t have to pay attention to FAR compliance. If you are one of the rare aircraft owners who has an accident, the legal eagles will use any violation of the FARs as “evidence” to a jury of your peers that you run an unsafe flight department.

Per Occurrence War Coverage

For a reasonable additional premium, by purchasing the per occurrence War coverage, your liability limit no longer contains any sub-limit for bodily injury claims to persons outside of the aircraft or any property damage claims. Because the added premium for this additional coverage is normally reasonable, I recommend purchasing it.

The Dassault Story (Part 2)

Pioneers of Innovative Technology Dassault had been a world technology leader ever since its post-war revival, but a new era was dawning in the early 1990s. Rod Simpson concludes his Dassault company profile… he CATIA computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system, developed in the 1980s, suddenly made it much easier for Dassault to design new aircraft. This three-dimension modelling tool, which allows engineers to create complicated structures, became a world-leading technology product in its own right, adopted by many other organizations. By 1990, Dassault was building Mirage 2000s for many customers and was developing the brand new Rafale fighter, involving exciting new systems and concepts. The company was also heading into space with engineering for the Hermes spaceplane, which would be launched using an Ariane rocket. All this required an increasingly sophisticated design organization - which had been established in 1981 as Dassault Systèmes. By the turn of the century, Dassault’s high-end

computer systems would be grappling with modelling supersonic and hypersonic aircraft designs, calculating weapons system design and integration, and assessing new materials particularly related to stealth technology. Above all, Dassault had always insisted on designing and manufacturing the flight control systems for all its aircraft. Its development of fly-bywire (FBW) systems started in the 1960s at the time it was doing its VTOL fighter projects, and full-authority FBW controls were incorporated into the Mirage 2000 and 4000 and the Rafale. The teams developing these controls also worked on the Falcon series and, while the early Falcons did not have FBW, they benefited from the integration skills of the Dassault technical team. Then there was the civil aircraft family that had started with the Falcon 20 (nee’ Mystere XX). This activity was joined in 1971 by Dassault’s only venture Aircraft Index see Page 153

ruling” for the fuselage and used a developed version of the Falcon 900s double-swept super critical wing. It had a glass cockpit, and the engines were managed by dual redundant Full Authority Digital Control (FADEC) systems. This 3,000nm twin-turbofan aircraft introduced CAT III(a) autoland capability coupled to a HUD (Head-Up-Display), allowing landings down to a ceiling height of 50ft and visibility of 700 feet. In the cabin, Dassault provided a spacious, bright and very quiet environment and controlled the quality of finish through its own completion center at Little Rock, Arkansas. This manufacturing decision also allowed the company to develop new materials and furnishing concepts for all its Falcon models. Since the first production Falcon 2000 entered service in 1995, the aircraft has been progressively improved. The current Falcon 2000LXS has winglets, its range has risen from the original 3,000nm to 4,000nm with a 22% gross weight increase to 42,800 lbs, and more powerful PW308C engines have given it a Mach 0.862 maximum cruising speed. Designers of the Falcon 2000 had a target of reducing operating costs by 30% compared with comparable models, largely achieved by the efficiency of the CFE738 engines. The use of CATIA software also allowed Dassault to partner with Alenia (manufacturer of the rear fuselage) by networking the computerized systems and enabling development and production costs to be minimized. Another key goal was to make the aircraft easily maintainable by giving mechanics easy access to components that are logically grouped, and by using digital inspection aids and a computeraided maintenance management system. This philosophy lives on at Dassault in 2016 at the St. Cloud Research and Development Center in Paris. Today, airframe designers don goggles to use virtual reality modelling that allows them to position internal components for maximum ease of maintenance. It allows the designer to test whether, for instance, an actuator can be removed from the aircraft without being obstructed by a piece of airframe structure.

The Birth of EASy

More successful was the business aircraft line and, by 1990, Dassault’s range of models had grown to include the threeengined Falcon 50 (based on the Falcon 20) and the Falcon 10 "Mini-Falcon". These were soon to be joined by a new and larger aircraft at the top of the line, namely the Falcon 900, which made its first flight on September 21, 1984 and was well into series production by the turn of the decade. The Falcon 900 is still in production and has brought widebody comfort to the Falcon line. It had a flat floor and a very large rear baggage room that could be accessed from the cabin or externally. It pioneered new materials with 18% of its structural parts made from composites, and it had an entirely new digital avionics package with an electronic EFIS and brand new symbology. This aircraft was a major advance in the business jet world. Dassault’s focus on how to make the aircraft more pilotfriendly would continue with successive Falcon 900 models. In 1995, the company launched a research program, aimed at giving the crew better situational awareness and facilitating better inter-pilot coordination so as to improve safety by reducing workload. The result was the Enhanced Avionics System (known as EASy), which used the Honeywell Primus Epic integrated avionics package. This addressed the problem of the crew handling an increasing volume of data - which could result in confusion in stress situations. The principle was that primary information should be limited to what the crew really needed to know - with abnormal situations being flagged up when necessary. Four large screens could be configured to present data in the form most comfortable for the pilots, and the main interface with the EASy flightdeck was through cursor control devices. EASy would become the standard for all Dassault business jets and would move on through continuous upgrades.

Introducing CAT III(a) with HUD…

At the 1989 Paris Air Show, Dassault unveiled its successor to the highly popular Falcon 20. The market had moved on and the wide cabin of the Falcon 900 had such customer appeal that Dassault used the same cross section and flat floor approach for its new Falcon 2000. It was the result of an intense design process to optimize the aircraft’s aerodynamics and to achieve the lowest possible fuel consumption and maximum range. Similar to the Falcon 900, the Model 2000 adopted “area 114

Design-to-Build, FBW Tech…

With the Falcon 900 and Falcon 2000 well established, the next target for Dassault was a ultra-long range 5,700nm new generation business jet. As John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet explained “we analyzed all major city pairs and, out of Paris, for instance, 5,700 nautical miles delivers the major US West Coast cities going west or Tokyo going east”. The Falcon 7X cabin had the same width and height as the Falcon 900 but was about 8ft longer and embodied an important Dassault concept known as “design-to-build”, which aimed at

reducing airframe parts counts and reducing manufacturing labor hours. The three-engined Falcon 7X had an entirely new wing employing a high-transonic form with a substantial improvement in lift-to-drag ratio compared with the existing Falcon wing designs. This was not only to improve performance but also to simplify the internal structure, giving weight and cost savings and allowing capacity for a large fuel volume. It was also the first business jet to have advanced digital fly-bywire systems, and it featured sidestick controls and a trackball control to enable a point-and-click system for panel management together with EVS and SVS. It is no secret that the Falcon 7X has been a great success, with around 450,000 hours in service to date, and it created a new platform to allow Dassault to move even one step further forward. In December, 2014 the company rolled out the prototype Falcon 8X, which is now in service and gives a 6,450nm range and a longer cabin. The 8X, however, is not just a stretched 7X. The design team re-examined the internal wing structure and managed to strip out around 600 lbs of weight. There are improvements to the wing leading edge slats, and the winglets have been fine-tuned for further drag reduction. These changes are all part of Dassault’s attention to detail and evidence that they never take anything for granted. Speaking to the designers at St. Cloud, one realizes that they are not afraid to change what has gone before - and they have the most sophisticated tools to help them do so. In parallel with the Falcon 8X, Dassault was also working on a new jet in the 13-passenger, 5,000nm class: in June, 2015 the twin-jet Falcon 5X was unveiled at Bordeaux with an ambitious target for a 20-month test program and certification planned for the end of 2016. But not all programs go smoothly, and the problems were not of Dassault’s making. The brand new Snecma Silvercrest engines that are to power the Falcon 5X suffered a development delay, and the aircraft has yet to take to the air. The Falcon 5X has a new generation wing that includes a flaperon and three leading edge slats, and it has an advanced EASy III flight deck based on the Honeywell Primus EPIC system with dual HUDs and sidestick controls. Another innovative feature of the Falcon 5X is the advanced FalconScan system, which gives continual monitoring and diagnostics across 10,000 key parameters to identify technical issues as soon as they occur.

activities. Take, for instance, Drone technology. Dassault has teamed with Thales and the Spanish company Indra to supply the MALE unmanned aircraft. This design is based on the Israeli-built Heron UAV, and Dassault’s experience of integration of complex systems has been crucial to the program. Another UAV venture is the nEUROn combat drone, which follows a 2003 French Government initiative to create an Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV). For this, Dassault designed a trio of scale flying wing proof of concept UAVs, starting with the “Petit Duc” and followed by the larger “Grand Duc”. Today, this program has grown into the cooperative nEUROn project that may be the basis for a new generation of unmanned fighters for use by European nations. Dassault’s technology demonstrator focusses on a stealthy radar cross section and infra-red concealment. The prototype, which is very similar in appearance to the American B-2 bomber, was flown in December, 2012; testing is continuing at Istres in the south of France with the demonstrator already having proved its low observability and electro-optical performance. Over the years, Dassault has proved that it can operate in a variety of markets. Certainly, its immediate post-war history was based on military combat aircraft, but many other products - from the Falcon to the Mercure - proved that technology developed in one area can be applied to another. The product design culture of the company is, perhaps, unique, and precise engineering means Dassault’s business jets can be as much as 30% lighter than their rivals.

Engineered with Passion

Dassault Falcon has always declared that its aircraft are "engineered with passion", but that passion also comes through in many other advanced areas of Dassault’s wide ranging Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Many Irons in Many Fires

Dassault is involved in many other programs that stretch its capabilities. It is part of the Clean Sky research program, is working in the cooperative SESAR air traffic management and Alpha-BIRD fuel research efforts, and is coordinator of the HYPATHIE project, which is involved with measurement of high altitude humidity to understand connections between aviation and increased cloud cover. In 2015, the Dassault Group recorded turnover of 4,176 million Euros of which 60% came from sales of Falcons and 83% came from export sales. This was a turnover growth of 26% over the past five years. The company faces major competition in both the military and Business Aviation fields, but its forward-looking approach has clearly paid dividends and a focus on its own technology is certain to see it making great advances. Will the company build a supersonic business jet? On this they are reticent, but if they do, expect it to be another outstanding and cutting edge design. T More information from www.falconjet.com

AvBuyer Writer Nets Gold Wing Journalism Award AvBuyer is delighted to announce that Dave Higdon, Contributing Editor, won National Business Aviation Association’s 2016 Gold Wing Journalism Award at the trade group’s recent convention in Orlando, Florida. The award was for an article series in AvBuyer Magazine on International Business Aviation Operations. The Gold Wing Journalism Award is presented annually to a journalist for insightful reporting on Business Aviation. AvBuyer’s award-winning series examines global airspace management strategies and provides valuable insight into the practical aspects of flying in such diverse regions as India, Russia, South America and others. “We congratulate Dave on his award at this year’s NBAABACE,” commented Jack Olcott, Editorial Director, AvBuyer Magazine. “His series has made a great contribution to our publication, and recognition through the Gold Wing Journalism Award for 2016 is richly deserved.”

"In pointing to various challenges in aviation operations outside the US, the series makes clear that America's system of airspace management is the world's finest," said NBAA Chairman Paul Anderson in presenting the Gold Wing award. "At a time when some people in Washington are promoting the notion that the United States should manage its aviation system the way other countries or regions do, it's important, but rare, to have coverage highlighting how safe, yet flexible and accessible America's aviation system truly is." Higdon, a member of the AvBuyer team for more than 15 years, has amassed more than 35 years’ reporting on all aspects of general aviation, having amassed over 5,000 flight hours in a wide variety of aircraft types.

Freestream Celebrates 25th Anniversary Freestream Aircraft Limited, a world leading pre-owned business jet broker, marked its 25th anniversary in 2016 with one of the most successful years in its history, completing more than 70 transactions valued at more than $1.4 billion, despite worldwide economic uncertainties in 2016. The completed total transactions now stand at more than 700, valued in excess of $18 billion.

languages, enabling it to complete cross-border transactions in virtually every corner of the world. “It’s been an ever-changing world since we began in 1991, and not just in Business Aviation,” said Mr. Ittihadieh. “The rate of change has accelerated in the last decade. When we started, it was an MS-DOS computer world. Today smart phones and the Internet put raw market data at the fingertips of anyone with an Internet connection.

Alireza Ittihadieh founded Freestream Alireza Ittihadieh Aircraft in 1991 in London, correctly anticipating the shift in Business Aviation from a US- centric market to a global one. The market has moved from 70% exclusively US transactions in 1990, to today’s nearly even split between US and international transactions. His skills in cross-border sales and acquisition transactions brought almost immediate success to Freestream Aircraft’s international pre-owned aircraft sales efforts. After 15 years of continued growth primarily in the Eastern Hemisphere, Mr. Ittihadieh began building a strong presence in the US market, bringing experienced business jet sales executive Rebecca Posoli-Cilli on board. Based at Teterboro, NJ, Ms. Posoli-Cilli has completed more than 400 transactions during her twenty-five years in corporate aviation, more that 100 of them under the Freestream Aircraft banner. In fourteen years Ms. Posoli-Cilli built a highly efficient and effective US team to complement Mr. Ittihadieh’s seasoned London UK-based operation. The combined Freestream Aircraft Staff is fluent in nine

Our aviation professionals provide an unmatched level of personal service, to ensure each transaction correctly matches each buyer with the right make and model aircraft – in the right condition and at the right price.” Freestream Aircraft clients today, rely on its team of professionals not only to complete new and pre-owned aircraft transactions, but also to provide pre-purchase inspection oversight, and since 2010, aircraft interior design and completion management. “Our commitment to our clients is relentless and uncompromising,” said Mr. Ittihadieh. “Our Staff has more than eight decades of combined international experience at their disposal 24/7, from listing to Rebecca Posoli-Cilli closing, to first flight and beyond.” More information from www.freestream.com

A Tribute to

Richard Ayling 1952 - 2016 Editor of GA Buyer Europe Former Olympic rower and Kingston resident Richard Ayling has died aged 64. The famous rower & coach, who perfected his trade with Kingston Rowing Club, died of heart failure on Tuesday, November 1 having led a glittering career in international rowing. As a top international rower, he was in the British team that won the Grand in 1975 and he also narrowly missed out on a medal in the coxed four at the World Championships. He also raced in the Montreal Olympics in 1976. Olympic gold medallist Martin Cross led the tributes to Mr Ayling, saying British rowing owes him a debt. He said: “If I had three words to describe Richard Ayling they would be passion, commitment and

fun. He was a giant of a man, who loved, just loved, the sport – every bit of it. He always wore his heart on his sleeve. And his laughter – Richard could take a joke as well as dish them out – was raucous. His life touched so many who helped make our sport great.” After retiring as an international rower Richard moved on to make racing boats as well as taking up coaching at Kingston Rowing Club. As a coach he took club members to the 1979 World Championships and continued to coach internationally until 1986. Mr Cross added: “He loved cars, with an impressive collection of models in his house and it was at home that Richard fulfilled his most important role: a devoted family man.” In his later years Richard became the editor of Rowing Magazine, an independent publication for the sport. Latterly, Richard edited, for sixteen years, one of the leading General Aviation Magazines serving the European market, GA Buyer Europe, “making many friends in the industry and contributing significantly to the

success of the publication, for which we shall be ever grateful” reflects John Brennan, Managing Director, AvBuyer Limited. During his time with AvBuyer, he also worked on the sales team for AvBuyer Magazine. He is survived by his wife Astrid and their children Roxana, Christina and Alex.
