Editor’s Welcome President Trump and Business Aviation

I

n the midst of slowing sales and falling evaluations of business aircraft, professionals within Business Aviation view the incoming administration of US President Donald Trump from positions ranging from jubilation to concern. As the consummate businessman who uses a variety of business aircraft, will President Trump support the form of transportation ardently appreciated by readers of this publication? Will his call for major investments in infrastructure stimulate the economy and bring greater capability to airports and the US aviation system? Or as a pragmatist, will he look at our community with benign neglect? More problematic, could his appeal to populism cause him to turn against Business Aviation? Considering major issues facing aviation, such as ATC modernization and possible privatization of classic government functions, the next four years hold many challenges. Uncertainty also surrounds how the Trump Administration will function internationally. Traditional US positions, such as unwavering support for NATO and alignment with the nations of Western Europe such as Germany, have been questioned. Prior to his inauguration on January 20, President Elect Trump created tension with China by reaching out to Taiwan, possibly inferring that the “One China” position of the world’s most populous nation no longer will be supported by the US. His comments about Brixit have been less than settling on the international stage, and his approach toward Russia’s President Putin has yet to be fully understood. Could his “America First” approach lead to trade disruptions? President Trump appears to be the personification of disruption, which in itself is not a bad characteristic. Many business leaders argue that progress is made when the status quo is disrupted. New thoughts are presented, debates ensue and change occurs. Clearly the mood for change is apparent in many parts of the globe, and Mr. Trump appears to have ridden that mood to the US presidency. Will other aspirants for high office in upcoming European elections also be elected as

agents of change? Will the Trump victory embolden others? If change is what voters want, what will be the nature of those changes? Nothing is certain, other than uncertainty. In such a changing environment, the need for Business Aviation increases. Entrepreneurs, industrial leaders and government will be challenged to act intelligently and promptly. Decisions must be made concerning where investments are appropriate, what partnerships should be nurtured, and what actions demand immediate attention. In a disruptive environment, remaining idle is not an option. Brokers, Dealer and aircraft operators are living in a changing environment that demands the capabilities of Business Aviation. Have confidence that the future, while uncertain, offers opportunities.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Business Aviation Market Summary A Scan of the Market at the Start of 2017

The outlook for business aircraft sales in 2017 looks quite similar to 2016, with a few remarkable differences, notes Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators... he world’s business jet fleet continued to grow in 2016, expanding by 2.5% to more than 21,000 aircraft. Although growth in the fleet would seem to be a good-health indicator, there are some important qualifiers that should be considered. Importantly, and addressed in the reports that follow from ARGUS and WingX Advance, overall utilization levels are not growing at a similar 2.5% rate, suggesting that more aircraft are either being idled or are operating less frequently than before. Based on an analysis of the latest available information, the growth in the worldwide business jet fleet did not keep up with the expansion of the global economy (as measured by global real GDP of about 3.1%) in 2016. For comparative purposes, fleet growth has averaged about 3.8% CAGR over the past 10 years (approximately 1.5 times faster than GDP). Although assessments of the effect of economic expansion, corporate profits and other demand-enablers traditionally include a lag period (to account for the fact that companies typically make profits before they order airplanes, and then have to wait to take delivery), shorter wait times are the norm today as OEM backlogs have been reduced. Practically speaking, this implies that a slowdown in GDP growth could be evident more quickly in business jet fleet growth rates.

T

International Fleet

As usual, the details on a country-by-country basis provide more useful and actionable insights. Importantly, the US business jet fleet continues to expand, growing at about 3% in 2016, well ahead of US GDP. With most economists forecasting an even higher rate of growth for the US in 2017, barring any major geo-political and trade disruptions that could occur in the uncertain policy environment we expect that US business jet sales will continue to outpace US GDP and the overall market. This is important, as despite more than 50 years of production, the business jet market remains highly concentrated in the United States, with more than 61% of the fleet based there at the end of 2016. Just seven countries account for almost 79% of the world fleet, including four in the Americas, two in Europe, and one in Asia. Within this business jet ‘club’, China has come off its double-digit GDP and fleet expansion rates, and other key markets have been hard hit by lower commodity prices and weak currencies (Brazil and Canada) and political upheaval (Brazil). With the many interconnections between these seven large economies, the outlook for international trade is particularly

clouded in 2017 by a rise in nationalistic rhetoric that could have far-reaching impacts well beyond Business Aviation’s markets.

Medium- to Long-Term Thinking

There has been much written about Business Aviation as a ‘growth’ sector. The medium- and longer-term prospects for continued expansion of Business Aviation’s reach into all corners of the world, and that should be of some comfort to aircraft sales professionals having difficulty sleeping these days. But who lives in the ‘medium- and longer-term’, and how are these timeframes even defined? For an anxious aircraft sales professional staring at aging, unmoving and depreciating inventory on the ramp, ‘medium-term’ might be 2-3 months – or less. For investors, time horizons are invariably much longer, and highly dependent on the asset class under consideration. For them, 2-3 or perhaps up to five years might be closer to the mark. Much can happen in five years and Business Aviation is no exception, particularly in the post-financial crisis era in what many might call an economic recovery without widespread prosperity. There is no doubt that some companies and High Net Worth Investors have elected to stay on the side-lines of the business aircraft playing field, content to hang onto their existing aircraft while keeping ‘dry powder’ for other investment opportunities. Meanwhile, despite massive R&D investments by the aircraft OEMs generating a steady flow of new aircraft into the market, there have been relatively few aircraft retirements, and the average age of the business jet fleet has increased by about 11% over the past five years (see Chart A). Could this be about to change, particularly within some segments such as the traditional Light and Mid-Size jet categories, where the average business jet is about 20 years old?

Averages are indicative only, however, and smart investors know how to place their bets, and win at least a few more times than they lose. Averages matter little in a market with a wide variation in product capabilities, attributes, maintenance conditions and operational history. Simply owning an aircraft that is signed up on a wellregarded cost-per-hour program can make all the difference in whether the asset is attractive to a potential buyer, especially in today’s hyper-competitive market. With many aircraft owners opting to hold onto their existing aircraft rather than trade-in or trade-up, the fact of the matter is that most buyers and sellers don’t participate frequently enough to offset any ‘bad bets’ they may have made against some ‘better bets’ that they might be missing. While upgrading an existing aircraft might seem to make sense to some, there is a real risk of becoming the last-ever owner of an aging asset that may retain essentially zero trade-in value at some point in time.

The Verdict?

In today’s market, with most of the residual value of older aircraft residing in the engines alone, prospective buyers would be very wise to seek the counsel of aircraft transaction professionals who can provide them with insights from their experience throughout the ups-and-downs of business aircraft markets. What might appear to be a time to defer a purchase could in fact be just the opposite – especially now as most OEMs have been wisely resetting their new aircraft production at lower rates to better align with the market. Throughout 2017, business aircraft buyers – pre-owned and new - are likely to be presented with some of the best opportunities to purchase attractive assets that we have seen in the post-2008 financial crisis era. As with most attractive opportunities, this one won’t last very long.

BizAv Activity - North America

North American flight activity in December 2016 rose 1.4% Year-over-Year (YoY) with Part 135 flight activity leading the way, while Part 91 activity was in the red for the holidays… Reviewing December 2016 vs. December 2015 flight activity, TRAQPak data indicate that results by operational category were mixed with Part 135 activity rising substantially. Fractional activity finished the period flat, and Part 91 activity dropped by 3.6%. The aircraft categories were mostly positive with large cabin jets leading once again, with a 7.2% increase over last December.

Month-Over-Month

December Business Aviation flight activity posted a MoM decrease (the normal historic trend) from November, finishing down 5.7%. Results by operational category were all red for the month. Aircraft categories were all down with the largest MoM decrease coming in the mid-size jet sector. Two individual sectors did manage to show increases, however. MI www.argus.aero

December 2016 versus December 2015

December 2016 versus November 2016

BizAv Activity Europe There were 52,419 Business Aviation departures in Europe in December 2016 representing a small 0.6% decline in YOY activity. The annual total of 798k Business Aviation flights in 2016 was down by 0.3% compared to 2015… The decline in December was due to weaker Turboprop and Piston activity; Business Jet flights were up, especially in AOC activity. December activity was held back by much weaker demand in Germany with departures down almost 9% (that’s equivalent to 760 fewer YoY flights). The decline in Germany was particularly acute in Piston activity, with Business Jet flights falling 3% YoY. France also saw a slight decline in activity in December, although Business Jet departures from France were up 6%, and AOC activity in France grew 8% overall. UK flight activity grew nearly 1%, Italy and Spain by approximately 2%, and Switzerland by almost 6% YOY. Intra-European activity was down 1% overall in December, with a weaker Western Europe bolstered by stronger Southern Europe. Arrivals into Europe were well up from the Middle East and Africa, but down from North America and Russia this month. Private flights fell by 4%, ending a mostly negative year for these missions, in contrast to AOC flights that consistently expanded in 2016. Ultra-Long-Range and Super-Midsize jet activity was up in every month of 2016. Midsize jet activity continued to erode in December, but Heavy Jet activity bounced back. “Overall this was a disappointing finish to 2016, the full year showing no aggregate improvement on a stagnant 2015,” summarized Richard Koe, Managing Director, WingX Advance. “However, much of this is due to the decline in Prop activity, especially in Germany. The Business Jet market is evidently recovering, especially in AOC activity.”  MI www.wingx-advance.com

Gulfstream Gaps Leave Door Ajar for Cessna & Embraer Recently, Gulfstream announced production would end for the venerable G450, weeks after the same was announced for the G150. While the incoming G500 is a replacement for the G450, no immediate replacement is planned for the G150, notes James Hagerty… The recently announced changes reinforce Gulfstream’s dedication to serve its core client base with large-cabin, long-range aircraft, but also exposes sizable price and performance gaps that the G450 and G150 once filled.

G450

The G150…

The very capable G150 was Gulfstream’s way to introduce mid-cabin buyers to the company’s product portfolio. Only 121 G150s are in service since the airplane was introduced in 2006, with the majority being delivered between 2008 and 2009. Following that peak, Gulfstream struggled to deliver more than six airplanes in any given year, and the G150’s lack of success was less about performance or product support, and more about price competition. Competing OEMs often discounted prices, while IAI’s inflexible pricing model made it difficult for Gulfstream to make a reasonable profit to sustain production.

The G450…

As the final derivative of the GIV, the G450 type design began production in the mid1980s as the GIV and later became the GIV-SP, G400 and eventually the G450.

Over 870 aircraft were delivered making it one of the most successful business jets ever. Despite continuous improvements, though, the GIV lineage is now perceived by many as dated and due for retirement. Gulfstream’s newest G500 model is expected to begin delivering ahead of schedule in late 2017. It’s an amazing aircraft by all measures with a Clean-Sheet design and cutting-edge technology. The

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

G500 will fly 600nm farther than the G450, at faster speeds and with more cabin space. However, with a price tag around $45m (excluding options and/or escalation), the G500 is in a different price/performance category than the G450 historically was. Ideally, the G500 will compete directly with Bombardier’s Global 5000 and Dassault’s Falcon 5X which is expected to begin delivering in 2020. When Gulfstream acquired the Galaxy (G200) and Astra (G100) programs in 2001, the justification for the acquisition was to introduce Small- and Mid-Size business jets to current and potential Gulfstream owners early in the product upgrade cycle (i.e., build customer loyalty and grow the relationship up the product line). Prior to the IAI deal, Gulfstream offered only the GIV-SP for around $30m and the GV at $40m. The strategy behind the acquisition proved to be a success as many G200 and G150 owners eventually upgraded to Long Range, Large Cabin legacy Gulfstream aircraft. Today with the end of the G150, Gulfstream’s entry-level aircraft is the

www.AVBUYER.com

MarketIndicators FEB17.qxp_Layout 1 24/01/2017 15:31 Page 5

Super Mid-Size G280 with a price tag around $20m. The G280 has a two-zone cabin with seating for up to 10 passengers and a range of 3,600nm, competing headto-head with the Challenger 350. Thus, Gulfstream’s lack of product choices below $20m reduces the likelihood that a first-time buyer will consider a Gulfstream product, leaving Cessna and Embraer with the most to gain within that market segment. The competition is loaded with new products such as the Cessna Citation Latitude and Longitude that are priced in the mid- to upper-teens. Embraer has already delivered over 50 Legacy 450 and 500 models which sell in that price range, and offer ranges of 3,000nm +/- while featuring a 6-foot-tall cabin. Embraer will likely generate future Legacy sales from the smaller Phenom 100 and 300 series, just as Cessna has been doing for years with its smaller Citation models.

Filling a Void…

The increased rate of growth for UltraLong-Range business jets coincided with the expansion of global trade in emerging markets between 2008 and 2012. Gulfstream developed the G500 and G600, based on new demand in the UltraLong-Range segment and to meet and exceed design performance from competing OEMs. With long lead times to design, build and certify a new product, it’s no surprise that demand for the Ultra-Long-Range aircraft has shifted along with the global economy. Gulfstream’s Large Cabin segment leader for the past 30 years has been the G450. It achieves a commonly accepted mission: 4,400nm range, seats up to 16 passengers and has a $30m price tag. As noted, while the G500 offers notable improvements in range and size, it is disproportionally priced compared to the G450. The gap between a $20m G280 and a $45m G500 is too large for both Gulfstream and the competition to ignore. Cessna could fill the void with new, fully capable clean sheet designs such as the Hemisphere. With an anticipated price tag of $35m, Cessna plans to certify the Hemisphere by 2020. It boasts a cabin six inches wider than the G500/G600 and one inch narrower than the G650. For the first time, Cessna will adopt a three-cabin zone interior that accommodates up to 19 passengers. With a range of 4,500nm, and a max Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

LEGACY 500

speed of Mach 0.90, this airplane achieves Gulfstream’s missing G450 mission with a modern and cost-efficient platform. When Hemisphere deliveries start in 2021-2022, we believe G450, Falcon 900LX or even Challenger 650 operators will look to Cessna. Cessna continues to demonstrate its ability to successfully deliver ‘clean sheet’ aircraft on-time and within performance parameters. It has a large, loyal customer base and a well-developed support network. Left unchallenged, we expect the Hemisphere and Cessna to gain significant market share in a segment that has been effectively abandoned by the competition.

Clawing Back Market-Share

How can Gulfstream fill the gap between a $20m aircraft and a $45m G500? Traditionally the OEMs shorten the

fuselage or reduce fuel capacity (as Bombardier did with the Global 5000). However, the OEMs have learned painful lessons that the cost to build these modified airplanes was essentially the same as the full-size versions, and the profit margins were less. Rather than investing in the larger and more expensive G600, perhaps Gulfstream should have dedicated research and development capital in the $30-35m segment. At a time when OEMs have excess capacity and soft demand, we agree that a second clean-sheet R&D investment is difficult to justify. But, in the meantime, Cessna is well under way in bringing the Hemisphere to market first, leaving Gulfstream, Bombardier and Dassault in a defensive position.

Asian Sky Group: More Optimism in Asia-Pacific In November 2016, over 250 respondents participated in Asian Sky Group’s survey on the mood and intentions of the current Asia-Pacific Business Aviation market. Here is a summary of the input… Compiling the Q4 2016 economic perception by region, just 17% of Central Asia-based respondents believe the economy will worsen – the lowest number across all of Asia-Pacific’s regions. South and East Asia follow, as well as Oceania, all with less than 40% of respondents reporting they are pessimistic about their economic future. Although 46% of Greater China-based respondents still believe the economy will get worse in the future, this is a respectable 9% drop compared to Q3 2016. This result essentially reveals that aviation industry insiders in Asia-Pacific are regaining confidence for future economic growth, as well as business opportunities. To provide a clear understanding of respondent expectations of the current economy, Chart A (right) presents the options “Past Low Point” and “At Low Point” as optimistic as the respondents believe that the economy will get better. Based on this assumption, ASG notes that since 2016 Q1, the percentage of respondents holding pessimistic views has decreased from 48% to 34%. More than 65% of respondents had an optimistic opinion in Q4 2016, trusting the economy will get better in the future.

In summary, over the past 12 months the restoration in respondents’ confidence that the future economy will improve allows a prediction of increased business opportunities for the General Aviation industry in Asia-Pacific. MI www.asianskygroup.com

UBS: Market Optimism Highest Since Downturn Optimism and customer interest in the business jet market rose in January to post-crisis highs, according to a new UBS Business Jet Market Survey… Now sitting at 51, the index score is 12% higher than that in UBS’s previous survey and the fourth consecutive monthly increase. For reference, this is only the fourth month that the index has surpassed 50 since mid-2008. The majority of survey respondents (72%) consider the recent US presidential election to be positive for the business jet market, and more than half reported improved customer interest since the November 2016 election. Over the next 12 months, 71% of respondents expect business conditions to improve, just 5% expect conditions to deteriorate and 23% expect them to remain the same, representing the highest level of optimism since 2010. UBS’s index reflects improved scores for the pricing index (up 51%); inventory, +18%; 12-month outlook, +8%; customer interest, +7%; and willingness of dealers to increase inventory, +3%. The majority of survey respondents are 28

Brokers/Dealers involved in the purchase and sale of new and used aircraft. More than half of respondents believed customer interest to be improved since the US election, with some respondents reporting that prospective buyers have since come off the sidelines. Customer interest remains strongest by far in North America, though scores also increased in Asia (+9 percent), Latin America (+7 percent) and the Middle East (+6 percent). Europe was roughly unchanged, UBS reported. By aircraft category, the light and midsize jet indexes came in above 50 - at 53 (up 7% sequentially) and 52 (up 15%) respectively. Though the market for largecabin jets is still considered ‘weakening’ with an index score of 46, this is 9% higher than a month ago. When asked about overall pricing levels, 2% of respondents said pricing levels had increased. Thirty-seven percent said pricing had decreased, while 61% said levels had remained the same. More than half of those responding (57%) said overall used business jet www.AVBUYER.com

inventory levels are high; 40% said they are at average levels, while 3% said levels are low. The results are improved from December’s survey, when 63% of respondents said inventory levels were high. When it comes to inventory levels of relatively young used aircraft, 9% of respondents reported low levels of inventory. Forty-eight percent said levels were high, while the remaining 43% said they are at average levels.

Young Used Jet Inventory Stable

Used business jet inventory inched down by 0.1 points last month to 11%, below the historical average of 13%, according to the latest data from UBS Global Research. At 2,326, the number of used business jets available ‘For Sale’ at the end of last month was roughly unchanged from a year ago. Slightly less than half of this inventory is jets 15 years old or younger, with the bulk of these—511—in the “young” category, meaning six to 10 years old. MI www.ubs.com

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition An Asset Insight market analysis conducted on December 30, 2016 covering 91 fixed-wing models and 1,865 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’, revealed Ask Prices for tracked models receded 1.5% following three consecutive monthly increases, ending 2016 down 10.1% versus January 2016. All three business jet groups were down in value for December, with Large Jets losing 1.6%; Medium Jets 2.5%; and Small Jets 1.8%. Turboprops experienced a gain of 0.5%, but ended the year down 1.1%. Annually, Large Jet Ask Prices fell 12.2%; Medium Jets lost 18.5%; and Small Jet values increased 10.7%.

Maintenance Exposure: The tracked fleet’s average Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) worsened/increased slightly to $1.482m from November’s $1.476m. Maintenance Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

The tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio (an aircraft’s Maintenance Exposure divided by its Ask Price) remained unchanged since November, at 52.4%. (Asset Insight considers any ETP Ratio over 40% to represent excessive Exposure in relation to Ask Price, and the tracked fleet’s average has been above 40% for the past two years.) Turboprops yet again posted the best/lowest figure at 43.1%; followed closely by Large Jets (44.0% - the group’s worst figure for the year); Small Jets (54.1%); and Medium Jets (62.6%).

Market Summary

Small Jets continued to offer the best value given the group’s ‘Outstanding’ Quality Rating and near 12-month low ETP Ratio, all at an Ask Price just below the group’s annual average. Additionally, the group’s Ask Price to final Transaction Price differential (8.1%) represents the lowest value erosion among the four groups. Similarly, with the lowest/best ETP Ratio among the four sectors, a Quality Rating of ‘Very Good’, and an Ask Price below last year’s average figure, Turboprop trades should be active, especially with an Ask/Actual Transaction value differential of 9.7%. Large Jets retained their ‘Outstanding’ Quality Rating last month but, over the past year the group’s Ask Price suffered a loss in excess of 10%, while Maintenance Exposure increased steadily since March to end 2016 posting the group’s worst figure. By virtue of those two factors, the ETP Ratio was negatively impacted, increasing nearly 30% to hit a 12-month peak in December. Unsurprisingly, sellers were impacted by Ask/Actual Transaction figures eroding 12.5% during Q4 2016. Looking ahead, Asset Insight’s 90-Day Value Trend for Large Jets is projecting a 32% improvement that, while not moving prices upward, is at least anticipated to slow value deterioration. Medium Jets ended the year with an ‘Excellent’ Quality Rating, but that was not reflected in the group’s Ask Price, which lost 18.5% during 2016 to end at a record low figure. At 15.5%, the Ask/Actual Transaction value spread was the highest/worst among all four sectors and with the 90-Day Value Trend figure remaining unchanged, no real bright spots are currently evident. By most accounts, 2016 was a very challenging year, but Asset Insight believes pent-up demand will result in active trading taking place as we begin 2017. Transaction frequency should improve as the year progresses.( T MI www.assetinsightinc.com (

What’s the Outlook for 2017 BizAv Sales?

Watching the Future Used Business Jet and Turboprop Markets… Although mainline analysts continued to crunch numbers for 2016, some of

their observations about new airplane sales can be seen as harbingers of what's ahead for the used aircraft segment in 2017. Dave Higdon investigates… o many of the analysts contacted for this story demurred when asked to speak to the future market for used business jets and turboprops. “We don't really track that segment like we do new-aircraft production and sales...or like we do utilization.” In a nutshell, that sentiment is the consensus of several well-known, highly regarded industry analysts.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

Rollie Vincent, Managing Director, JETNET iQ, estimates new jet sales for 2016 were down about 8% (to 661 units). Richard Aboulafia, Vice President, Teal Group, voiced his view that 2017 new aircraft sales will mirror 2016’s lower sales. No growth. Vincent explained, “The key issue continues to be aircraft oversupply, reflected in low prices, residuals and low average utilization.”

Mixed Signals Undercut International Sales...

Vincent's observations echo those of several Dealers and Brokers consulted for this story. And some of these elements have already been factored into new airplane production plans. Various OEMs have lowered their long-term estimates citing short-term growth challenges, and the folks on the front lines of used aircraft sales seemed to hedge when predicting 2017 transaction action. “We're hoping for ‘flat’, period,” one West Coast broker volunteered. “We'd love to see things stabilize where we are and not edge downward again. It's difficult to fathom, though.” The West Coast broker noted that all the usual elements that typically buoy both new and used aircraft sales manifested themselves in 2016. The stock market continued to rise; corporate profits remained strong; jobs creation continued unabated; the economy and wages both grew – modestly, but steadily. “All these positives were enough to keep some smart people from believing the US economy was tanking when just the opposite was happening: A growing economy, unlike many of our export markets, where things weren't going so well.” These elements translated into a slower market overall – but the US could see some small gains that offset declines expected internationally. Said Vincent, “Net/net... This suggests a share shift in favor of US sales, orders and deliveries and flight activity. But overall expect a generally flat-todown outlook. Slower international GDP growth is underlying generally weak outlooks, at least for the next couple of years.”

The Dangers of Anticipation...

The changing of the guard in the White House cuts two ways, according to feedback received by AvBuyer. “The new Administration is likely to be friendly as regards corporate taxation, encouraging higher profitability and hopefully more corporate investment,” Vincent explained. “We see a market that is likely to be somewhat down Year-over-Year (YoY) in new jet deliveries (in terms of units) with an even higher percentage dip in value; rhetoric from Trump is likely to encourage US business jet demand from corporates but at the same time discourage sales in trade-oriented nations like Mexico, Canada, Brazil and China that have become important sources of demand in recent years.” Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

While in some corners hopes run high that promised business-tax cuts, infrastructure spending and other changes under the new administration will propel more sales, a larger number of economists and analysts caution that some elements of the new White House policies may actually hurt US sales and employment, especially where international transactions are in play. “The large-cabin market took a dive when economies in China and parts of Asia started cooling-off a couple of years ago,” said a Northeast dealer who supported the new President. “The last thing we need – regardless of whether it's for a new or used aircraft – is new obstacles to trade in the international markets. “The phones aren't ringing and the emails are not coming from some of the countries. Those markets went quiet right after November 8th, and it's still a little eerie – as if no one’s in the office.” An early January order by the then President-elect ordering home many ambassadors and their families www.AVBUYER.com

won't help US companies market in those nations, one international broker explained. “While we don’t need the ambassador there for closing, they are an ally when paperwork entangles with foreign bureaucracies...you want the personage of a United States ambassador behind your efforts to break things loose and bring home the sale.” Already reports from Gulfstream show that large-cabin sales and backlogs have declined in recent months, prompting the OEM to re-examine its production plans as it continues to conduct certification flights on its newest aircraft. “If there's to be growth in sales – in either new or used aircraft – it may have to come from home,” the international broker opined. “Here's where the economy is strongest, assets available and the need is the greatest.”

lots of airplanes to trade hands in the first quarter of 2017.” After that, say other Dealers and Brokers, all bets are off – up and down the fleet of aircraft popular with business operators, from pistons, to turboprops, to jets. “The increasing options for upgrading avionics and interiors, in particular, will work against the sale of many older airframes (especially ones older than 20 years),” said the Northeast broker. Upgrading to meet upcoming mandates is getting easier. Options are increasing and cost differences compared to trading for a newer aircraft will make financial sense to many operators, the Northeast broker argued. “Even older King Airs are good candidates for engine and avionics upgrades that make them competitive with factory-new models – and for less money, even if you go all in and upgrade their paint and interior.”

One Dealer's View...

The Depreciation Dilemma...

Fred Ahles serves as president of Premier Aircraft Sales in Florida, and in his company's January newsletter he speaks of his reasons for “starting the year with an upbeat attitude”. First is the plethora of new GA models that arrived on the market in 2016, among them new single-engine turboprops from Piper and Daher, and a new single-engine business jet from Cirrus – the world's first. “Second, availability: The used aircraft sales market remains strong for high quality inventory.” Other dealers and brokers echo Ahles contention. “But,” he continues, “…the supply of high quality airplanes is getting scarcer as the fleet ages. The larger numbers have an inverse impact on prices, driving down what buyers are willing to spend – until the inventory declines to normal once more. “As an example, there were recently 50 used Meridians on the market,” he elaborates. “As many as ten had damage history and had been ‘For Sale’ for some time; ten more had original, obsolete avionics. Of those that remain very few are maintained to factoryrecommended standards. “Savvy buyers go for well-maintained airplanes with great history. The market for good used (Mooney) Ovations and Acclaims is brisk as the supply has dwindled. We had a great year with used Mooneys; with the new Ultra coming soon, we expect another great year. With the stock market reaching all-time highs, we expect 36

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

Tax law already makes buying new (or upgraded used) aircraft and other equipment an attractive option for companies and individuals able to use the write-downs available with accelerated depreciation. In fact, many companies reserve that depreciation potential for use spread across several years – simply because they benefit less from taking it all at once. Nevertheless, the option still holds appeal. Closing attorneys involved in business aircraft transactions say that the last month of 2016 brought to the closing table many in-progress transactions. “We had something close to the usual run on December closings,” said one attorney active in aviation sales practice. “It wasn't up at the level of a couple of years ago, however. It’s hard to determine why from our mix of clients, but the year wasn't a ‘barn-burner’ – so a slower year-end than usual isn't exactly a shock.” “Don't expect sales to take off much for the first couple of quarters,” another transaction expert predicted. “At least not until the market gets some clearer, less-conflicted signs of what exactly we can expect from the new Congress and the new President. Uncertainty, several brokers and dealers noted, doesn't favor a strong business climate in 2017; at least not for businesses trying to decide on buying or replacing a business aircraft. T

2007 vs 2017 Business Jet Market Trends

Using data from JETNET >>KNOW MORE, Mike Chase and Marj Rose assess trends in business jet market values, comparing the present marketplace with that of 2007. ack in 2007, who could have foreseen a decade later we would be dreaming of a return to those levels of business? Times were good, and it felt as though they would never end. Even though the percentage of the business jet fleet for sale hovered around 11% - a bit higher than what was previously held to be “normal” – demand for aircraft was strong, sales were brisk and aircraft depreciation held steady at 5%. In some cases certainly nearly-new used models actually commanded higher prices than new, such was the demand. We saw many firsts back in 2007, including first deliveries of the new VLJ category aircraft that contributed to the recordbreaking new aircraft deliveries. There was plenty of activity during 2007 in the used jet and turboprop markets too, helping make the year memorable. Fast-forward ten years. In 2017 we find ourselves somewhat distracted by today’s market challenges, including trying to pinpoint what a new or used business jet is worth in this market. If nothing else, the last decade has taught us patience - but we continue to wonder how long the industry will remain flat or in

low single-digit growth mode. Growth as measured by new jets installed to the global fleet was less than 4% in 2015. ‘Bifurcation’ is a new term we garnered during the period, describing the separation of business jets valued >$26m, and those valued <$26m. In 2016 we witnessed a large decrease in business jets valued at >$26m for the first time since 2009, compared to unchanged values for those at <$26m. We also witnessed the rapid growth of the international business jet market (specifically BRIC transactions) and their subsequent decline. Understanding today’s aircraft values is not easy, and the industry shift in inventory supply and demand over the last 10 years has been interesting to watch. Because of the uncertainty, JETNET launched a new tool called JETNET Values at NBAABACE2016 last November, providing reliable pricing data on aircraft sold. JETNET Values provides subscribers access to reported sold prices as well as tools for better analysis of pricing data. Following, we’ll compare some of historic market data from 2007 with current trends and include insight from JETNET Values…

Business Jets ‘For Sale’

Historically, 2009 was the peak year in terms of business jets ‘For Sale’ (2,782 aircraft, or 16.3% of the fleet in December of that year). Since then, the lowest number of business jets ‘For Sale’ was 2,202 (11% of the fleet) in 2014. The following year brought an increase (2,359/11.5% fleet ‘For Sale’), and 2016 a minimal decrease again (2,315, or 11% fleet ‘For Sale’). As demonstrated by Chart A (above), the 11% fleet ‘For Sale’ in 2016 falls within the pre-recession range of business jets ‘For Sale’, and is no longer regarded as being a high inventory level relative to the number of business jets in operation. Having reviewed the market going back to 2005, the global business jet inventory has not dipped below 10%, which as a rule of thumb has traditionally separated a buyer’s and seller’s market based on supply and demand. (Of course, the 10% rule of thumb applies on a model-by-model level too.) Will we see a seller’s market (below 10%) in 2017? For that to occur, there would need to be a reduction of over 200 business jets ‘For Sale’, or a similar reduction in the number of business jets in operation (which could be obtained by aircraft being retired).

Average Days on Market/Average Ask Price

Two further leading indicators on the condition of the used jet market are ‘Average Days on the Market’ and ‘Average Asking Prices’, as shown in Chart B (right). Compiled from JETNET data, we can see that in the prerecession the average days had fallen from the peak in 2004 at 305 days (10 months) to 275 days (9 months) in 2007. Note, the average length of time to sell in 2007 was still higher when compared with 1998 and 1999, when it took an 42

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

average of a little more than 150 days (five months). One reason for this longer sales cycle could be the sheer volume of business jets to choose from, which had doubled from 783 in 1998 to 1,635 ‘For Sale’ by 2007. By 2016 the number of business jets ‘For Sale’ had increased to 2,315 (almost triple the level of 1998). Interestingly, the 2016 percentage of business jet fleet ‘For Sale’ was 11%, compared to 10.8% in 2007, but at a much higher level of inventory in 2016. Chart B also shows a positive change in the ‘Average Asking Prices’ in 2007, with an increase of $510k (+6.0%) over the 2006 average. The 2007 average asking price for a business jet was $5.54m (versus $5.03m in 2006). Today the average price is nearly $7m. There is an underlying assumption that when average asking prices are higher, the average days on the market should also be higher. However, plotting these two indicators over the 20 year period from 1996 to 2015 on Chart B displays some interesting patterns to the contrary. From 2010 to 2014 the relationship of these two metrics fully decouples with prices increasing while days-on-market decreases. Note: The metric of average days on the market before a business jet sells is a straight forward calculation. However, the average asking price may not be since an asking price is not always recorded or it may change, leaving some uncertainty in its representation. If we focus on the post-recession period from 2009 to 2015, we see a large decrease in the ‘For Sale’ inventory and a correlating drop in average asking prices—but the average days on the market increased before business jets sold. This relationship continued for the five year post-recessionary

period (2010 to 2014) averaging just over a year for business jets to sell, until 2015 when the average dropped to 10.5 months (approximately 320 days). A comparison of average asking prices between the two periods resulted in prices being 8.8% higher in the post recessionary period. We watch with interest to see what the used business jet market will do in 2017.

Market Values

As mentioned above, the new JETNET Values tool can offer insight on a particular aircraft’s current market value by examining reported sale prices (the final contracted price that is reported by the seller/buyer) from recent sale transactions. As an example, there were approximately 250 full-sale retail transactions of various Gulfstream pre-owned business jets recorded in JETNET during the prior twelve months. 57% of those transactions have been posted with a reported sales price in JETNET Values. This and four other selected examples of sale prices collected over the past 12 months are represented below: • • • • •

Hawker (42%) Challenger (45%) Gulfstream (57%) Dassault Falcon (49%) Global (38%)

We have come a long way since 2007, and I think we can safely say that none of us came close to predicting what has subsequently occurred in our industry. But many of us still have a spirit of optimism for the coming year. We want to believe that the US and global GDP growth will get stronger. Even though jet fuel prices are on the rise again, lower fuel costs actually made little impact on flight activity. Basic supply and demand economics for business jets are due to come together to calm used jet values. These laws of economics as well as political factors may hold the keys to the pace of new and used business jet sales picking up this year. We will continue to monitor progress in 2017. Next time, we’ll compare the 2016 vs 2015 used business jet markets, reporting on the full retail sale transactions, days on the market and average asking prices - data that are still a work-inprogress at press time.

Upgrading Your Aircraft (Part 3)

The Common Sense Approach to Upgrading your Private Jet Ken Elliott continues his series, uncovering the nuts and bolts of upgrading your aircraft to meet upcoming mandates, or to improve its performance and capability generally… n AvBuyer’s January issue, we addressed the general approach to upgrading your aircraft to meet upcoming mandate and operational requirements. In this article, we crack open the different layers of specific upgrades. Any aircraft modification is like a Matryoshka doll, having multiple layers within. It takes a peeling back of the layers to reveal its complexity. To illustrate what is required, we take an example of one system and walk through the process of accomplishing the upgrade. In this series, we are focusing on legacy aircraft upgrades using the latest compliant technology. Initially we will cover the preparation and some of the aspects owners need to consider.

Organization Designation Authorization

An upgrade begins with the certification effort undertaken on the first aircraft of type and ends with an approval of required specifications and data issued by the certifying agency. The certification effort can be completed by: • • •

The aircraft Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM); A Maintenance Repair Organization (MRO) or Repair Station (FAA approved) that may simply repair and install avionics; or A facility acting under the Organization Designation Authority (ODA) process that could also be either of the above. Aircraft Index see Page 145


Avionics FEB17.qxp_Finance 24/01/2017 09:50 Page 2

Ultimately, however, the upgrade must be approved by the FAA. OEMs are commonly tied to their own aircraft models. MROs are restricted to those aircraft they are approved, trained and equipped to support (under Repair Station approvals), while ODAs, if stand alone, may be somewhat aircraft agnostic focusing on engineering and certification. ODAs embedded in maintenance provider Repair Stations will align their effort to internal maintenance programs. Stand-alone ODAs, on the other hand, have the independence to align themselves to multiple Repair Stations, developing system solutions across multiple aircraft platforms. The FAA delegates some of its functions, allowing greater autonomy for industry providers to self-regulate, certify their own activity and regularly monitor implementation using a rigid auditing process. The ODA effort facilitates this delegation, and each ODA ‘organization’ has an Approved Procedures Manual that must be faithfully followed. The ODA submits a certification plan to the FAA for approval and completes most of the project’s many steps that normally would be undertaken by the FAA. The big advantage of having an ODA process is that schedules, costs and risks can be controlled by (and within) the organization. Note that even ODAs embedded in MROs or the aircraft OEM need to have operational independence across several functions. Because they are delegated by the FAA, they must have a behavioral model that includes an independent oversight capacity, thereby insuring compliance. So, several companies structure their ODA to operate as a selfcontrolled entity, while rolling engineering up under the same compliance-related umbrella. However, the independent ODA that is not functioning as a repair station aligns itself with multiple MROs and Avionics Shops. Providing the relationship is good and the price-structuring reasonable, this can work seamlessly for the aircraft operator. The Repair Station (MRO or Avionics Shop) is the customer interface and obtains the certification data from the ODA. Using the approved data that list all equipment changes and describes in detail the upgrade process, the Repair Station provides a proposal to the operator and if selected, completes the upgrade.

Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

The data package is a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC). In the previous article, we covered how an Approved Model List (AML) STC allowed the application of a single STC, developed on one model of aircraft, to be applied across a wider spectrum of aircraft models, including by a variety of different aircraft manufacturers.

An ADS-B STC Upgrade Example

Consider upgrading to ADS-B Out, which is applicable across a wide spectrum of aircraft operating in multiple classes of airspace and must be installed and approved by January 1, 2020. Returning to the data package, one company stands out from the crowd in its ability to provide a straightforward and effective range of AML STCs. Using a single AML STC, CMD Flight Solutions has been able to cover a broad swath of specific aircraft models from multiple FAA Part 25 aircraft manufacturers. While not alone in its ability to provide ADS-B solutions for legacy aircraft, CMD has stuck to a straight-forward formula and a minimalized certification effort, providing affordability to legacy aircraft operators that would normally have to invest greater dollars in their ADS-B upgrade. CMD has both FAA and EASA certified ADS-B Out solutions covering business jets, piston and regional carrier aircraft. Their formula starts with the aircraft’s existing

transponders, pairing them to their respective WAAS-LPV GPS/FMS and other devices that may be supplied or upgraded, and ending up with the ability to annunciate ADS-B Fail. Where transponders are not compatible for ADS-B Out, they are replaced with newer and more capable equipment. The solution provides a path for GPS position data reaching the transponder and any required existing equipment upgrades, along with the means to annunciate failure of the ADS-B function. If ADS-B In is added/included, the issue of traffic display extends the engineering, certification and integration task. In the structural example used for this article, Figure 3 (overleaf) demonstrates how all the parties work together to supply an ADS-B solution for the operator. There is a strong relationship across this team, including between the equipment providers and the operator, once the aircraft has been delivered. Equipment providers will offer direct service to operators, covering warranty, database subscriptions and some software changes. For business jets and most turboprops today, the main avionics suites are manufactured by Rockwell Collins, Honeywell and Garmin. However, many legacy aircraft are equipped with third party Flight Management Systems (FMS) where companies such as Universal Avionics and FreeFlight have made significant inroads. 

Compatible transponders for our example include: • Rockwell Collins TDR-94/94D • Honeywell Primus II Radio Suite (including transponder) Compatible FMS or GPS sensors for our example include: • Universal UNS-1(Series)w FMS • Honeywell GNSSU • Rockwell Collins GPS-4000S • FreeFlight 1203C • Honeywell/Bendix King KGS-200 Under the CMD solution, a multiple array of subsets combine different equipage over a significant number of aircraft types and configurations. This is just one ADS-B Out example using two separate solution integrations for the different transponders identified above. Also, from time to time, aircraft are required to install new transponders because their existing equipment is not upgradeable. Additionally, some aircraft require minor adjustments to the strict requirements of an STC. Accordingly, Repair Station engineering will tailor the STC installation data to the specific aircraft, while approving the upgrade via a local field approval process. Alternately the change may require a minor amendment to the existing STC, with the Repair Station seeking approval through the owner of the existing STC. Remember that an STC incurs its own cost. The STC fee is usually designed to recover the non-recurring engineering and certification cost of its development. While not having to pay the full cost of the STC, operators can expect to share in the recovery of initial costs.

The Real World

dramatically impact the engineers’ approach to the new integration. The prints may reveal clues to an engineer such as indications of previous work not adequately documented elsewhere. Maintenance records that include all equipment, model, part number and serial number information: From adequate records, a proposal can reflect the compatibility of equipment and its suitability for the upgrade. Just one digit different in the part number of an avionics unit can mean the difference between a minor box modification and a complete replacement.

A thorough record of all modifications, including the location of hardware (e.g., boxes and antennas): Because the new STC will be strict in its requirements, a box or antenna position can be shown to be in a specific location. The need to move it can result in greater cost and work effort. Provide the opportunity for an MRO representative to physically review the STC against your aircraft ahead of the installation. Table A (overleaf) lists several aircraft-specific aspects of an upcoming installation that an MRO would need to know. 

Figure 3: A Typical Relationship Structure Between an Operator and the ADS-B Integration Team

There is the ideal world as laid out in a typical upgrade overview, and then there is the real world that is sometimes alluded to within the terms and conditions of a proposal. The upgrade to an aircraft, seen or not seen, will be contingent upon several caveats. Long before an aircraft taxis onto the MRO ramp, there are several key steps that must be completed if you wish to avoid a big surprise. •

Establish if other work needs to be accomplished: Avionic upgrades provide great opportunities to complete other work such as inspections, service alerts, engine and APU checks, interior rework, limited paint and more. Having to access various aircraft zones once and not twice saves on interior repair and refurbishment expense. Having multiple trades in the same zone at the same time can involve significant preplanning, so knowing about other tasks ahead of the aircraft’s arrival can be very helpful to the MRO. So, the real world of aircraft upgrades is driven by planning tasks to be accomplished, communicating intentions effectively and providing important aircraft life-cycle information. A face-to-face with the ‘lead’ for each required trade, all in the same room and long before the work is started, can be very meaningful. Some of the trade and skills that should be in the room include:

• • • • • • • •

Engines, APU and Accessories Airframe Avionics Customer Service Representative (CSR) Quality Control/Inspection ODA Certification and Engineering Interiors and Cabin Systems Program Lead.

Smaller shops specializing in just avionics, or with limited services will have less representation around the table. Failing the opportunity for a face-to-face, a web call could be helpful to coordinate and ensure all aspects of the upgrade are covered.

Planning Aircraft Arrival at MRO

Assuming the contract is in good shape and all terms are acceptable, an agreeable schedule is then established. The date of arrival for an aircraft to taxiin to the MRO is predicated by several factors, not including those driven by operator constraints. Some of the factors impacting MRO schedules will be: • •

50

The site schedule for previously committed work and hangar space; Manpower available to work on your aircraft, which will become an increasing factor as we draw closer to the ADS-B Out equipage deadline of 2020;

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

• • • • • •

Equipment availability from the vendors; Schedule with the vendor for sending equipment to the MRO for upgrades and service; Schedule of trades, some of which may be sub-contracted; Schedule of uncommon parts that may require special manufacture; Schedule of other trades such as interior and airframe; Certification and engineering schedule.

Specifically for avionics, there are five main skill sets in a decent size shop that will be involved with the aircraft. These include Certification, QA & Inspection; Engineering; Sheet Metal; Installers (wiring) & Checkout; Service (repair and equipment test); and Customer service. Each has a very important role, and each must be scheduled to be available for your aircraft. A similar structure is implied for all other trades. A schedule can become complex quickly if the operator www.AVBUYER.com

elects to bundle several tasks during a single visit. Downtime and cost savings may be significant when bundling tasks, but the risk for incurring unanticipated issues and delay become much greater without proper planning. If we consider an older aircraft, say pre2000, the installation may be complex because the aircraft will have undergone technology revision since its initial build. Several mandates had compliance deadlines between 1995 and 2005. Some of these pre-existing mandates included: • • • • • • • • • •

TCAS I or II TAWS or EGPWS 406 MHz ELT RVSM PBN (Earlier RNP Requirements) WAAS LPV CPDLC (in anticipation of) 8.33 KHz Communication Radios FM Immunity Navigation Receivers Cockpit Voice & Flight Data Recording.  Aircraft Index see Page 145

‘Nice-to-have’ upgrades also have impact. Many of these are still migrating into older aircraft platforms and include: • • • • • • • • • •

Flat Panel Displays Cabin Entertainment & Management LED Lights Winglets Electronic Flight Bags Satcom High Speed Data & On-Board Wi-Fi Enhanced Vision (some with Head-Up Display) Synthetic Vision & Moving Maps Weather and other Data Services.

Pre-existing mandates and “nice-tohave” upgrades alone demonstrate the transformation that has taken place in legacy cockpits. The new mandates, including ADS-B Out, FANS with data recording and PBN

(RNP), each require intrusive integration of new wiring and other trades into the cockpit and elsewhere. So, even with the best of pre-planning, be prepared for at least one item of additional work and cost once you arrive at the MRO if you are operating an older platform. For our example of an ADS-B Out upgrade, the typical owner of a legacy aircraft can expect to experience equipment, wiring, minor structure and annunciator changes. The possibility exists for further work on antennas and integration to existing systems.

In Summary

By focusing on pre-planning and explaining scheduling issues that integrators face, operators may better understand (and more importantly) better prepare for their upgrades. The ADS-B Out requirement affects most of us and is a

good example of an upgrade process. Smart operators are also preparing for or completing FANS Datacom at the same time as ADS-B Out, especially as equipage integration is shared. FANS includes the use of ADS-C, allowing oceanic surveillance. Also, FANS and ADS-B both require the integration of the aircraft Flight Management System (FMS). Separately, some operators are including ADS-B In where it is available. While not a requirement, it significantly enhances the services provided by ADS-B and is considered a wise use of the budget. Next, continuing with issues associated with the ADS-B Out mandate, we will walk through the steps, issues and considerations the owner needs to know once the aircraft arrives on the integrator’s ramp and begins the complete installation that follows.

What Happens When Engines Age?

Facing the Future with Older Power Sources It’s hardly difficult to draw the correlation between an aircraft’s age and increased maintenance costs, notes Dave Higdon. But how can an operator keep those costs predictable and controllable? esearch puts the rate of maintenance cost-growth for aircraft between 5-15 years of age at about 3.5% per year. After that, allowing for engine and overhead costs, the total maintenance expenses grow relatively little. But surprises are possible. Of course, Part 135 charter operators may fly their aircraft more than operators flying privately under Part 91, but the point remains: Older business aircraft stop becoming progressively more expensive to maintain overall after factoring in engine-related costs and aircraft overhead costs. The engine need not be a major factor with the appropriate planning and investment. Handled at its

best, the worst aspect of engine maintenance will be the required downtime for installation of a Loaner engine, enabling the aircraft owner to keep flying while the regular powerplant is overhauled. Even that period can be put to good use when major avionics upgrades or airframe maintenance are done at the same time. With detailed planning, control and scheduling, an engine issue need not become a major disruption to your travel opportunities.

Time, Cycles, Rotables & Recurrents

A detailed examination of logs, maintenance records, and airframe and powerplant checks are standard procedure when considering the purchase of a used aircraft. For the powerplant, that process should include an examination of internal components – particularly parts subject to high rotation speeds and higher temperatures. Every engine comes with its own upkeep instructions and periodic maintenance times. Some approved maintenance cycles include instructions

www.AVBUYER.com

Engines 1 Feb.qxp_Finance 23/01/2017 16:16 Page 2

interest on what they have to spend on the overhaul. In between these extremes many operators pay for powerplant insurance through a program proscribed to meet their particular needs... theirs and the aircraft (see sidebar overleaf). Depending on the operator’s contract, the fees may cover only catastrophic maintenance needs or everything from preventive maintenance to overhaul or replacement. The most complete programs leave nothing uncovered in return for a flat fee per-engine-hour, assessed monthly. Those fees work similarly to insurance policies, and are based on fleet numbers, known issues and maintenance costs. As the aircraft engine ages, the per-hour fee may be adjusted over time to allow for changes in costs and fleet numbers. Programs exist to help operators with various levels of financial strength match their resources to a program suitable for their needs, and typically provide the subscriber with a single point of contact designated to act on their behalf – backed by staff experts in the hardware involved.

From Inlet to Exhaust

on replacing parts well before they can fail from fatigue. Depending on the powerplant, those replacement cycles may be hours-based, cyclebased, calendar-based or even condition-based (meaning if no flaws are detected the part can stay in service indefinitely). Modern turbine engines for business aircraft boast remarkable inspection periods, most upward of 2,000 hours, but some beyond 4,000 hours. That 2,000-hour inspection cycle covers 5.7 years of flying 350 hours a year with nothing more than routine maintenance. Oil changes, oil-level maintenance, clean heat exchangers and exceedance avoidance all contribute to long engine life at minimal maintenance costs or downtime.

Assurance of Minimum Downtime

Some operators – particularly owner/operators – put aside an overhaul reserve based on a current-time estimate of an overhaul at some future date, divided by the hours remaining before the required inspection or overhaul. Other operators simply plan to write a big check – confident that they'll have the liquid funds to cover what can be a six-figure undertaking. Some operators refinance the aircraft in question, paying Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

The fundamental components of turbine engines spend their lives in a spin. Up front the inlet fan of a high-bypass turbine engine feeds the majority of its atmospheric consumption through chambers in the engine cowl, with a smaller proportion routed into the engine core. In the core an axial compressor consisting of many stages progressively squeezes the air into ever-smaller spaces. As the compressor performs its job, the act of compression heats the squeezed air to hundreds of degrees Celsius. Because of the extremes in temperature and extreme loads of the compressor blades spinning at thousands of revolutions per minute, routine maintenance requires periodic inspection of the compressor section. For some engines, that means removal from the aircraft. For others, the inspection occurs on-wing. The compressor pushes scalding-hot air through an exit that opens into the combustion chamber – a metal can fitted with fuel nozzles that spray highpressure fuel into the air where igniters light it. The combustor, or combustion chamber, endures the heated compressed air plus the extreme heat of a blue-flame jet-fuel fire. So it's another point of inspection on a cycle basis prescribed by the manufacturer. The gases expand out of the combustion chamber through a series of nozzles, impinging on the blades of the various power turbines near the back end of the jet engine. Those turbines power the air compressor section and accessories. While turbofan engines use the hot gasses to generate jet propulsion, turboprops use the energy to drive a propeller. Between the extreme heat (upward of 1,400°C) and high rotation speed of the turbine wheels – the www.AVBUYER.com

turbine blades endure a torturous existence. Again, these parts face a rigid inspection schedule, and some operate under mandatory replacement limits set by the engine maker and approved by the FAA.

Other Engine Issues...

Turbofan engines employ accessories that also experience great swings in temperatures and high-speed rotation of parts (such as oil pumps, hydraulic pumps, starters, alternators and starter/generators). Most of these are components relatively easily removed and replaced – particularly compared to the engine’s internals. Turboprop and turboshaft engines feature gearboxes that also experience high loads, temperature extremes and many rotating parts. In most turboprop engines the power turbine spinning the propeller turns the propeller shaft through a reduction gear, regardless of whether they are free or geared turbines. In helicopters the high-speed rotational power of the powerplant runs through a gearbox to drive the main rotor and antitorque mechanism, whether a tail rotor or a fan that provides air power to counter the main rotor’s torque. Both types of reduction gears carry their own routine and preventative maintenance needs, and both can be sources of maintenance issues as they age.

The Inevitability of Down Time

Even the best-maintained machine occasionally suffers from an unanticipated failure – often something simple. Alas, no

shop keeps spares for every powerplant component for every engine. And as the age of the powerplant advances, availability of spare parts can become more of a challenge. While overhaul costs have been shown to remain relatively stable up through age 15, that’s less the case for turbine aircraft aged above 20 years (and for turboprops over 25). In many cases new turboprop engines are available as replacements for original equipment engines under supplemental type certificates (STC). And, in a bit of good news, the replacement costs can come in below the expense of overhauling the originals – as well as offering significantly higher overhaul periods and

Hourly Maintenance Programs

Just as foot soldiers are advised to take great care of their feet, aircraft operators should pay particular attention to the wellbeing of their aircraft’s engines. Careful attention to powerplant maintenance protects an aircraft’s value and contributes measurably to safety. An hourly maintenance program, typically known as power-by-the-hour, offers the added advantage of removing the unpredictability of costs associated with aircraft engine upkeep. JSSI, the world’s largest independent provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for aircraft engines and airframes, for example, offers contracts tailored to a highly extensive range of airframes and powerplants.

greater fuel efficiency with lower specific fuel consumption. That makes the replacement option a win/win for many operators – and a path to reducing both maintenance and direct operating costs on older airframes. Regardless of the aircraft, it pays to remember that maintenance and overhauls are part of the experience of aircraft ownership and operation. The universal advice for avoiding most surprises and keeping maintenance costs at their lowest: Keep up with routine maintenance; don't defer unexpected needs; and have an alternative form of lift on stand-by because, inevitably, it will be needed.

Five Jet Engine Tips to Lower Maintenance Costs One common theme when managing aircraft maintenance costs is whether to spend a little more now or to pay more later, highlights John Terpstra, Jet Support Services, Inc. Following are some key tips to help lower your aircraft’s overall engine maintenance expenses.

O

ver the following paragraphs, we present lessons learned from real life that will help you answer questions on whether to spend a little more now or pay more later when it comes to your business aircraft’s engine maintenance.

Tip 1: Life Limited Component Replacement

Installing a Life Limited Component (LLC) with low-time remaining may seem like a great way to save out-of-pocket expense at the time of a maintenance event, but if the component has 60

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

insufficient time or cycles remaining to get you to the next major inspection, it can quickly lead to added expense. We sometimes see operators considering a lower-cost, low-time LLC part, but it is possible their decision will mean additional downtime later, along with additional expenses related to engine removal, reinstallation and consumables. Ultimately, this could also diminish the overall value of the aircraft. Be sure to carefully calculate the time needed from the LLC to get you to the next event.

John Terpstra is Senior Director, Airframe and Engine T.A. Services for JSSI. As a licensed Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic, he began his career with JSSI in 1999. Currently, John has global responsibility for the JSSI airframe and on-wing engine team.

Tip 2: Engine Performance Issues

preservation is a crucial lesson to learn with regard to saving on maintenance expense. There are typically periods of high utilization with business aircraft - and, likewise, there will be periods of low utilization. For a myriad of reasons, your aircraft may be parked outside for extended periods of time. Too often, the need to preserve the engines during this time is overlooked. In many instances, preservation goes well beyond installing inlet and exhaust covers. Almost every engine OEM has set requirements for preserving engines, based on the expected period of inactivity and whether the engine is installed or removed from the aircraft during that time. These may include:

Tip 3: Engine Preservation

• •

Trend monitoring provides valuable insight into the overall engine condition. Monitoring these trend data can reveal shifts in performance that are indicative of potential issues. Although most shifts are subtle, due to the expected degradation of the hot section of an engine over time, some changes point to a serious problem. Don’t wait until later. Investigating the condition at an early stage could result in saving hot section components from further damage. Failing to address issues with the combustion chamber, turbine nozzle or turbine blades (for example) over time could result in an expensive, unscheduled shop visit, or much higher than average costs at the next scheduled shop visit. My JSSI colleagues have all addressed this recommendation in past articles, but engine Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

“...you may have access to certain components that are repairable now but would require more costly replacement down the road...”

• • •

Full preservation of the fuel system; Routine oil samples; and Occasionally dry-motoring the engine.

The above requirements are not only limited to aircraft parked on a ramp, however. Many engines stored in a controlled environment still require some form of preservation. It is therefore important to discuss the need for this process with any facility where you plan to leave your aircraft for an extended period. Regardless of the method and how involved it is, the consequences of not following the OEM’s guidelines can be very costly in the longer-term. Depending on the length of inactivity, a full engine teardown could be required to return the engine to service (at a minimum cost of $100,000).

Tip 4: Unscheduled Event = Opportunity for Scheduled Inspection

Many business jet operators miss the excellent opportunity to accomplish a scheduled event while the engine is disassembled for an unscheduled repair… If you are in the unfortunate situation of needing to access an internal engine component outside of one of your regular scheduled shop 62

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

visits, it will be in your best interests to inquire about the additional costs to complete the signoff for the next major inspection. You could be pleasantly surprised; in some instances the additional costs are minimal. By performing the inspection now, you will not incur the extra expense for the same access just a short time later, thereby turning your misfortune into opportunity. There’s an additional silver lining of savings here too: you may have access to certain components that are repairable now but would require more costly replacement down the road with continued engine operation.

Tip 5: Auxiliary Power Unit

Replacing the Auxiliary Power Unit’s fuel nozzle(s) and ignitor(s) - even when the requirement is only to inspect and replace when necessary - could save you expense and unexpected downtime later. Operators have seen increased reliability by implementing this maintenance action. In particular, they lower their risk of damaged hot section components related to poor fuel nozzle spray patterns, which lead to streaking and hot spots. They also avoid unscheduled downtime related to a faulty ignitor.

With certain APUs, the cost to replace ignitors and fuel nozzles at each routine inspection, regardless of condition, could range from $10,000-$20,000 over a period of 1,000+ operating hours. It is better to spend this amount than be faced with a $150,000– $200,000 repair later due to hot section damage that could have been avoided. Though this approach would be considered elective maintenance and not a guaranteed means of eliminating performance issues, it’s certainly justifiable given the potential cost avoidance.

Bonus Tip: Don’t Skip the Pre-Purchase Inspection

It is hard to address the issue of maintenance costs and not mention how critical a PrePurchase Inspection (PPI) is when acquiring an aircraft or engine. As part of your due diligence, it is highly recommended that you include a PPI performed by a service facility with which you are comfortable. In addition, hiring an experienced individual who will look out for your best interests is never a bad thing. From a technical standpoint, no pre-purchase is complete without a thorough review of the logbooks. The value of an engine varies greatly Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

depending on Service Bulletin and Airworthiness Directive compliance as well as inspection status and time remaining on LLCs, There is no better way to assess the overall condition of an engine than through a borescope inspection. If damage is found, either the seller or their hull insurance (depending on damage type) should be responsible for the costs to remedy. Alternatively, this can be negotiated into the purchase price. By accomplishing these two items—logbook review and borescope inspection—you will come away with a good understanding of the overall status and condition of the engine and have a much better feel for anticipated costs going forward.

In Summary

The above lessons point to taking a proactive approach to managing your jet engine’s maintenance costs. It is worth spending a little more now rather than taking the risk of paying much more later! More information from www.jetsupport.com T

Buying a Jet? What to Know About the Engines Top Five Engine Items to Understand When Purchasing an Aircraft With many variables including engine OEM, engine programs, parts obsolescence, maintenance history and more, doing your research ahead of time can help you avoid costly mistakes when entering an aircraft transaction, says Mike Saathoff. What are some items that can make you a smarter buyer? hroughout the lifetime of an aircraft, the engines will probably be the most expensive item to maintain. Unfortunately, there is no simple one-size-fits-all solution to apply to every make and model of engine. Fully understanding your variables and knowing the right questions to ask your service center are critical considerations when selecting the best aircraft for your mission. Following are five key areas to focus onâ&#x20AC;Ś

T 66

AVBUYER MAGAZINE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; February 2017

1. Engine Times & Cycles

The value of an engine depends upon the cost of complying with inspection and overhaul requirements, the time or cycles remaining before such requirements must be met, and the cost of components. In reviewing the engines of an aircraft you plan to purchase, make sure the seller has the current and up-to-date times and cycles of each engine, including the APUs (if applicable). These data are primarily tracked and documented in a flight log. Make sure all cycle-limited components are tracked. Numerous items inside a turbine engine are tracked independently and have different cyclelimited replacement or overhaul requirements. Someone on your team who is familiar with logbook research, or a knowledgeable consultant with similar skills, can determine if engine times and cycles are accurate. Such expertise will avoid costly mistakes. It is essential to check whether the aircraft

Engines 3 Feb.qxp_Finance 23/01/2017 16:26 Page 2

engines are up-to-date on service bulletins (and if not, why not), to check for inconsistencies in engine times, and to evaluate recurring issues.

with your engine representative or the program representative. When reviewing the agreement, ask the following questions:

2. Enrolment in a Program?

• • • •

There are many engine programs in the industry, including JSSI (Jet Support Services, Inc); RollsRoyce CoroprateCare; Honeywell MSP (Maintenance Service Plan); Pratt & Whitney ESP (Eagle Service Plan); Williams TAP (Total Assurance Program); and more. With each program there will be many variables and options. Some programs are highly customizable for the customer, and could vary from covering a portion of the major events, to covering every possible expense the engine might incur. When purchasing an aircraft that is enrolled on an engine program, don’t assume total coverage make sure you fully understand what is and what is not covered. Ask for a copy of the current engine maintenance agreement, and review this agreement Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

• • •

Is the existing contract transferable? What are my monthly costs? What items are completely covered? What items will I be responsible for at small and large engine events? Does the program cover normal inspections and discrepancies? Do I have to use a particular service provider to complete the service, or Are there advantages to using certain providers?

3. Maintenance History & Cost

One item that some owners overlook is the engine maintenance history. The primary question should be whether they have been maintained by a reputable facility that carefully follows maintenance guidelines? www.AVBUYER.com

Mike Saathoff has over 20 years of experience in corporate aircraft maintenance. He has held several service technician and quality control positions with Elliott Aviation and currently serves as the Director of Sales Operations & Engine and Accessory Sales. He has an Airframe and Powerplant and Inspection Authorization license with the FAA.

Like many other items, much of this information can be obtained with thorough logbook research. Most aircraft are consistently serviced by the same facility. Check whether that facility has a good track record for the type of aircraft you’re purchasing. In order to establish any upcoming maintenance costs on the engines, you should be able to use all of the information gathered from the logbook research and supply that to your preferred maintenance provider, who should be able to provide you with an estimate of the upcoming maintenance costs on your engines, based on your estimated utilization. Aircraft owners need to understand where the engine is within its current lifecycle, and what upcoming events are coming up. You can then discuss any potential expenses with your planned maintenance provider or the agency providing the Pre-Purchase Inspection.

4. Location & Operation

The primary location of the aircraft during its prior operation can have a major impact on engine life and cost. Have the aircraft’s engines been operated in an extremely sandy environment, a corrosive (i.e. coastal salt air) environment, or in an area with significant pollution? Have they been exposed to the elements for a significant amount of time? These factors make a difference on the internal condition of the engine. Even more significant is if the engine has been run through a complete cycle recently and on a consistent basis (for long enough to get them to the appropriate operating temperatures to meet the engines’ needs). Does oil sufficiently coat all internal components requiring it, and have all areas been heated to remove the contaminants? Many times this is tracked in the engine or flight log. Each engine will have its own particular requirements for calendar limit between cycles – so consult the engine OEM’s manuals. Trend monitoring is often used to understand how an engine has been operated. Many of the current generation of avionics systems have digital trend

68

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

monitoring that will track relevant parameters through all engine operations. Additionally, there are many aftermarket or manual-tracking methods that can be used.

5. Understanding the Value of Installed Engines

“Each engine will have its own particular requirements for calendar limit between cycles – so consult the engine OEM’s manuals.”

The items presented in this article impact the value of an aircraft’s engines, thus they greatly influence a buy or sell transaction. An additional factor is how and where engine maintenance was performed. Was it completed “on-wing” or “off-wing”, was the facility factoryauthorized, and what is its reputation? Have the engines been modified? If so, do those modifications have an effect on the engine or airframe warranty? Aftermarket parts, facilities used to maintain the engine, and parts obsolescence all influence the value of the engine and the cost of repairs. An independent ASA Accredited aircraft appraiser is a valuable resource in determining engine value. ASA Accredited appraisers deal with valuing aircraft every day and are the most knowledgeable professionals in the industry.

Gaining Full Understanding

Fully understanding aircraft engines during a transaction can be difficult and time-consuming. However, working with an experienced maintenance provider and broker dealer to explain all the parameters will make a significant difference in your comfort level when making a decision. Ultimately, you have to make the decision that will be best for you. Do your research, talk to reputable shops and talk to other operators. Never feel pressured into a transaction without fully understanding all of your available options. Weigh the pros and cons and when you come to a conclusion, you will know that you made the right call! T More information from www.elliottaviation.com

How to Get the Best from Your Jet Maintenance

Would You Argue with a Part Replacement?

he Hippocratic Oath leaves no doubt of a doctor’s prime directive: Do no harm. When in doubt, cause no hurt. Like medicine, aviation requires highly-skilled professionals with advanced skills and years of specialization—and a physician’s approach to helping patients. Naturally, we want the most experienced technicians to work on our airplanes; those able to swiftly get to the root cause of our pesky maintenance issues. It’s a fact that technology, accumulated experiences and software-driven analysis have

changed troubleshooting. Located at the OEM’s headquarters often are teams that focus on fielding calls and dispensing guidance to get airplanes back aloft and into revenue mode. Surely that’s a move in the right direction, but it’s a move that can also have adverse effects since troubleshooting and investigation is taken away from the on-site technician and may be replaced by aggressive parts-swapping.

Too Great Expectations?

Several years ago, I took delivery of a brand new large cabin jet and negotiated an all-inclusive parts

Aircraft Index see Page 145


Horizon Air Group February.qxp_Layout 1 23/01/2017 16:13 Page 1

and labor program. Knowing that a new airplane would have the maintenance challenges covered, I felt confident that there was a vast network of experienced technicians and service centers able to help us manage and correct our discrepancies. As anticipated, issues cropped up. It was something of a letdown, however, to note how quickly orders for expensive parts were placed to be delivered by the fastest (and expensive) courier services. I could visualize dollar signs flying away from our wallet, and I quickly became unhappy with this approach. Clearly my expectations and the OEM’s were not aligned. I expected that with years working on a specific aircraft type, experienced technicians would grab their tool boxes, arrive on the scene and troubleshoot our airplane. Instead, parts-swapping seemed to take precedence. Why, you might ask, should I care if the fix came under warranty and all parts and labor charges were covered? Well, neither the warranty nor the maintenance contracts guaranteed that a faulty part would be replaced with a new part. We risked ending up with a high-time, refurbished part installed on our brand new business jet. Adding insult to injury, due to the parts-swapping merry-go-round, once we had installed the same serial number part that had been exchanged during an earlier maintenance event. It found its way back on our aircraft because the tear down report accompanying the part stated ‘no fault found’. In essence, although the parts don't cost anything, we wanted to prevent our airplane from becoming a ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’ of exchanged parts, adding reams of paperwork to the aircraft’s logbook and lowering the residual value. 72

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

Don’t Be Afraid to Disagree

In another instance, we once had a fuel pump that faulted randomly on a wide-cabin jet. At sixty eight thousand dollars (and eight hours of labor), replacing it should have been the last option following exhaustive troubleshooting efforts. Alas, it was the very first thing proposed. Disagreeing, I requested that more time be taken to investigate and find the root of the problem. My request paid off. A bare wire was found that, when exposed to different temperatures, grounded and failed the system. A few minutes of wire splicing remedied a pesky issue, simultaneously saving the OEM serious money. I have been asked why I’m such a stickler for having technicians troubleshoot before exchanging parts. My answer is highlighted above. From a dollars and cents perspective, fixing in lieu of replacing saves everyone big money while maintaining the integrity of the airplane.

Consider This…

If the fixed cost Parts and Labor Programs can’t be profitable, the only solution available is for the OEM or provider of the service contract to raise their price, which will impact each of our own bottom lines. Just as applicable, warranty work performed to fix manufacturing flaws will raise costs and cause the parts pool to dwindle. If doctors follow the Hippocratic Oath as a guideline to their actions, why should we not apply the same principles to our aircraft maintenance? I am all for technological enhancements and the development of tools that optimize and reduce maintenance hurdles. That approach is positive. But we should also balance those tools with our natural talents and our years of hands-on experience. T

Keys to Improving Aviation Safety Management (Part 3)

Effective Organization of Safety Reporting Mario Pierobon concludes his three-part series on qualifications of Safety Managers within corporate flight departments, discussing how to achieve the desired improvements… reviously, we highlighted how the duties of Safety Managers often are assigned to someone who already holds another position with the Flight Department, when best practices dictate that safety management is not an add-on, but a function requiring full commitment. We asserted that many Safety Managers have the unrealized potential to make significant contributions to the aviation activities of his or her employer, and that such potential should be developed. In this concluding article, we consider how to implement a program that ensures Safety Managers are proficient and effective, and that they achieve specific targets in their pursuit of aviation safety. For the Safety Manager to develop and for the

organization to learn from his/her expertise, the flight department must be supportive. Various stakeholders need to contribute to the Safety Management System (SMS). It is only with stakeholder input, processed by the Safety Manager, that safety knowledge can be produced to the benefit of the wider organization. In corporate flight departments three main barriers can prevent implementation of effective safety management: • • •

Insufficient supply of safety information from the line environment; Restrictive filtering of safety information before it is sent to the Safety Manager; and Minimal commitment of line-managers to the department’s Safety Management System. Aircraft Index see Page 145


Safety Jan17.qxp_Finance 23/01/2017 15:34 Page 2

Safety Information Supply

Line employees must supply safety information (e.g. safety reports) to the Safety Manager for the purpose of identifying trends that might reveal safety issues. Among the reasons flight department personnel may not supply this information in the first place is that they do not see a benefit from doing so. Perhaps the hazard reporting system is seen as unnecessary bureaucracy, or no response is perceived from management as reports are filed. In order to avoid safety reporting becoming perfunctory and an unnecessary burden, the procedure for reporting should be as simple as possible and the reporting form should leave room for reporters to add their ideas in relation to the issues they perceive. It is important that contributors to safety reports understand that their perspective is valued by the organization. Procedures should be put in place for acknowledging each safety report and communicating any corrective action taken as a consequence of each report.

Filtering of Safety Information

In organizations lacking a mature SMS it can be common practice for line employees to submit a safety report to their senior officer (flight operations manager or maintenance manager) before it reaches the Safety Manager. Significant opportunity for improvement in safety performance is thus lost. Imagine if a safety event occurs because of factors related to the performance of management.

If a safety report is filtered through the heads of functional areas, unfortunately it is commonplace that all the background information associated with organizational factors is lost in the analysis of the event. Thus, safety reports should be submitted directly to the Safety Manager. As a relatively independent party, he or she is in a more suitable position to assess the event and its causal factors.

Commitment of Line-Managers

In small organizations there is a widespread belief that safety is the responsibility of the safety office only and that the commitment of the line managers to the department’s SMS is only reactive (e.g., inputs are provided only when requested by the Safety Manager). Management should instead be proactive with regard to its contribution to the department’s SMS and should be asking the Safety Manager or the safety office to facilitate safety risk assessments of the operations they oversee. Emphasis must be on continuous improvement and professional excellence.

In Conclusion

The qualification criteria for the Safety Manager, together with the development of an organizational structure that allows the Safety Manager to fully realize his/her expertise potential, can bring shape to a flight department’s SMS, thereby providing the opportunity for real learning and continuous improvement. T

“Thus, safety reports should be submitted directly to the Safety Manager.”

Medium Jets:

Just the Right Fit for Many Operators... Of all the business jet categories, none does more to

balance capability with utility than the Medium Jet segment; and no segment provides more options, either.

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

Aircraft Performance & Specifications Medium Jets

T

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

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

ver the following paragraphs, we’ll analyse the performance of the Dassault Falcon 2000 and Gulfstream G200 to see how they compare in the market. We’ll consider productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size), and give consideration to their current market values. Dassault introduced the Falcon 2000 as the Falcon X in 1989. First flight came in 1993, certification was awarded in 1994, and in 1995 the Falcon 2000 entered service.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

www.AVBUYER.com

The Dassault Falcon 2000 offers transcontinental range, featuring a large stand-up cabin, two superefficient CFE738-1-1B engines and a Collins Pro Line 4 integrated avionics suite. Today, there are 187 wholly-owned Falcon 2000 aircraft in service. An additional 35 are fractionallyowned, and eight are under shared-ownership, giving a total fleet of 230 in operation worldwide. Twenty-three units (or 10% of the Falcon 2000 fleet) are leased, according to JETNET data. By continent, North America is home to the largest percentage (74%) of Falcon Aircraft Index see Page 145

Payload & Range

The data contained in Table A (left) are published in the B&CA, May 2016 issue but also sourced from Conklin & de Decker. As we have mentioned previously, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Falcon 2000 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ (1,095 lbs) is significantly more than that offered by the G200 (650 lbs). Table A also shows the fuel usage of each aircraft (sourced from Aircraft Cost Calculator). There is a small difference of eight gallons per hour (3%) between the fuel usage of the Falcon 2000 (258 GPH) and the Gulfstream G200 (250 GPH).

Cabin Cross-Sections

Source: UPCAST JETBOOK

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Falcon 2000 cabin volume is 1,028 cubic feet, with 31.2 ft. cabin length. The Gulfstream G200 has less cabin volume (869 cu. ft.) and shorter length at 24.5 ft. Chart A (center, left), courtesy of UPCAST JETBOOK, offers a cabin cross-section comparison and shows the Falcon 2000 has more width (7.7 ft. vs 7.2 ft.), but fractionally less height (6.2 ft. vs 6.25 ft.). Note, however, that the Falcon 2000 achieves its height with a flat floor cabin design.

As noted above, the Falcon 2000 is powered by two CFE738-1-1B engines, each offering 5,918 lbst. The Gulfstream G200, by contrast, is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW306A engines with 6,040 lbst each. Using data published in the May 2016 B&CA Planning and Purchasing Handbook and the August 2016 B&CA Operations Planning Guide we will compare our aircraft. The nationwide average Jet-A fuel cost used from the August 2016 edition was $4.90 per gallon, so for the sake of comparison we’ll chart the numbers as published. Note: Fuel price used from this source does not represent an average price for the year. Chart C (top, right) details ‘Cost per Mile’ and compares the Falcon 2000 to its competition, factoring direct costs and with each aircraft flying a 1,000nm mission with an 800 lbs (four passengers) payload. The Gulfstream G200 shows the lowest cost per nautical mile at $4.30 compared to $5.79 for the Falcon 2000. That’s a difference of 35% in favor of the Gulfstream G200.

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 (bottom, left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2006-model Dassault Falcon 2000 business jet in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods, assuming a used retail price of $7.6m, per Vref Pricing guide.

Source: Vref

The current used jet market for the Falcon 2000 shows a total of 30 aircraft ‘For Sale’ with fifteen displaying an asking price ranging from $3.495m to $5.995m. We also reviewed the used Gulfstream G200 market, which currently displays asking prices ranging from $2.995m to $5.9m. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variation in price. Of course, the final negotiated price remains to be established between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

cabin volume and maximum payload values are from Conklin & de Decker and Aircraft Cost Calculator, while the number of aircraft in-operation and percentage ‘For Sale’ are as reported by JETNET. As mentioned, the Falcon 2000 has 13% of its fleet currently ‘For Sale’ while the Gulfstream G200 fleet stands at 14.6% ‘For Sale’. The average number of pre-owned transactions (sold) per month for the Falcon 2000 is two units compared to seven for Gulfstream G200s.

Depreciation Schedule

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are

94

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

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, top). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period.

In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, aircraft used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year recovery period or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under

www.AVBUYER.com

The points in Chart E (right) are centered on the same aircraft. Pricing used in the vertical axis is as published in the Vref Pricing Guide. The productivity index requires further discussion in that the factors used can be somewhat arbitrary. Productivity can be defined (as 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 & amenities. Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Aircraft Index see Page 145


AirCompAnalysis Feb17.qxp_ACAn 24/01/2017 11:29 Page 6

Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the Falcon 2000 displays a high level of productivity. The Falcon 2000 shows a higher retail price, but greater productivity compared to the Gulfstream G200. The Gulfstream G200 has an advantage in terms of operating cost and longer range, but the Falcon 2000 offers a larger cabin volume and a greater payload with full fuel capability. Used Falcon 2000s show good full retail sale transactions averaging two units per month, and it is still a popular model within the fractional ownership sector. Operators should evaluate their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them.

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. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Falcon 2000 will continue to do well on the used jet sales market for the foreseeable future.

High-Flyers’ Interview An Insider’s View on the Russian BizAv Market Malta may be a tranquil place from which to launch an aviation company,

but it’s a strategic bridging point between Europe, Africa, Russia and the US for Emperor Aviation. Rani Singh discusses the Russian market with Emperor Aviation’s Founder & Owner, Irakli Litanishvili... fter graduating from University in 2005, Irakli Litanishvili began working in Business Aviation unintentionally. Whilst job-hunting, one of three offers that came to him was from a friend providing an opportunity to work for a charter brokerage company. Since accepting that challenge he hasn’t looked back, working as Representative of Ocean Sky Company in Russia & CIS before building his own Business Aviation charter operation. Today, Emperor Aviation offers aircraft management and charter, fuel and handling services.

A Rani Singh writes about aviation. A sought after Journalist and author she also reports on news, foreign affairs, politics and business with the world’s largest news organization.

“I found partners, and we built our own concept to attract aircraft owners seeking a management solution,” he recalls. “Due to the worldwide economic crisis, 2008 was a challenging year. Aircraft owners were paying careful attention to their costs, seeking ways to obtain more competitive management packages. “It was in 2013 that my team and I decided to set up our own management company – Emperor Aviation – which now forms part of the Aim of Emperor group of companies. The most important values for us were to instill trust and responsibility in our aircraft owners for the assets we manage.”  Aircraft Index see Page 145

IRAKLI LITANISHVILI, EMPEROR’S FOUNDER & OWNER

At the time, the Maltese government was providing incentives to attract Business Aviation companies to the island. “We were fortunate to have a very capable and dedicated team, resulting in us receiving our AOC.” The team spent four months working on all the regulatory paperwork to ensure that their AOC was achieved.

“However, we can already see some positive indicators in the development of the Business Aviation market there.”

The Russian Market

According to Litanishvili, the Russian Business Aviation market is undergoing a recovery at present. “Our data show that the number of charter flights increased slightly during 2016. The most active months for charter were January, May, June, July and September due mostly to traditional holiday periods and key regional business events, including the St. Petersburg and Vladivostok Economic Forums. “In terms of charter passenger preferences, we see no difference in demand for Russian- or European-owned business jets. Most of the Russianowned aircraft are registered in Europe or with popular offshore registries and are operated fully in accordance with international aviation rules for safety and maintenance. “So usually a charter passenger will pay the most attention to the year of manufacture and price when selecting a jet to fly,” Litanishvili elaborates. “Of course, there are cases when a passenger has to charter only a Russian-registered aircraft, such as when taking a local (internal) flight from Moscow to Sochi. “Business Aviation is the most mobile and effective tool for business needs worldwide,” he continues. “Our aircraft owners use their jets to address business issues in Russia, CIS, Europe, USA and Middle East.” But in his experience, the charter market isn’t all

business, with the jets in his fleet also deployed for leisure purposes. “The most popular routes among the Russian clientele are France (mainly Nice), Switzerland, Great Britain and Italy,” Litanishvili notes. Within the regions Emperor Aviation operates, he has found categorically that people prefer to utilize long range and heavy jets. “Our fleet consists only of long range jets. Currently, we operate seven business jets and are awaiting three new long range jets to join our fleet soon.”

Outlook for 2017

Litanishvili notes that a region’s Business Aviation market is strongly dependent on the economic situation within that region. “In the case of the Russian economy, it is difficult to make any predictions about future development,” he offers. “However, we can already see some positive indicators in the development of the Business Aviation market there. “Firstly, the charter market is recovering from the 2014 political crisis. Some positive activities began to show at the end of 2015 through the beginning of 2016, and we hope that this positivity will continue into 2017.” Meanwhile, Litanishvili notes that some Russian jet owners are upgrading their aircraft with newer models, including upgrading the Gulfstream G550 to the G650 and the Bombardier Global 5000 to the Global 6000 (for example). Taking into consideration all the above, as well as the development of some sectors of the Russian economy (including oil, agriculture, real estate and banking) Litanishvili ventures a prediction. “I am confident that the Russian Business Aviation market will show a 5-7% growth in 2017,” he asserted with a smile.

To be successful, businesses must make efficient use of resources in the effective pursuit of corporate goals. David Wyndham offers an approach that management can use to examine the core issues of Flight Department safety, efficiency and effectiveness. ow does the Board or the Aviation Manager know when the Flight Department is operating safely, is being effective in supporting the needs of the company, and is efficient in the use of its allocated funds? In the months following this introduction, AvBuyer will address how top management can assess the success of its Flight Department.

Safety

We examine the overarching goal of Business Aviation—providing safe transportation. Achieving safety, however, is challenging. There are rarely simple questions with Yes/No answers. There are degrees of safety. Just as your business has risk management practices when evaluating new opportunities or products, Business Aviation also requires risk management. Deciding whether a flight can depart or should be cancelled can sometimes be a very gray decision. But being safe has no gray areas—safety must never be a roll of the dice. Formalized risk management practices must be employed. Training is the cornerstone of Business Aviation safety. Not only does each nation’s regulatory authority require training, so does your insurer. Similar to requirements for other professions such as accountants, lawyers and physicians, flight crews Aircraft Index see Page 145

as well as maintenance personnel must receive initial and recurrent training to practice their trade. Best practices recommend recurrent training in 6 to 12 month cycles. Flight Attendants, Schedulers and Dispatchers also need training. How does management know what level of training is appropriate and when proficiency has been achieved? A Flight Department’s Safety Management System (SMS) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) should be verified or audited by an independent and knowledgeable third party. A corporation’s senior management, preferably at the CEO level, must embrace the concept of safety. Best practices dictate that a Flight Department’s SMS and SOPs include a statement from top management clearly supporting the flight crew’s authority to implement documented safety procedures. Does your aviation department have senior leadership’s “signed” buy-in on what your aviation department safety policies are? It should.

Effectiveness

The following month we address the effectiveness of the company’s Flight Department. Before you can measure effectiveness, however, there must be Executive and Team alignment with respect to the corporation’s goals. Does the use of the company aircraft support those goals? How often does the Flight Department Leadership meet or interact with the Executive Leadership to stay informed about current and future business opportunities? Is there understanding and trust among all relevant parties?

Efficiency

This series will address how efficiently the firm’s resources of people, capital and time are applied to implement Business Aviation. What are suitable metrics for value creation, performance and costs of the Flight Department? We explore defining and agreeing on assumptions. What is success for a firm’s use of Business Aviation? A Flight Department structured to provide only executive transport will have different measures of success than a corporate shuttle or an aviation activity only used for emergency or standby operations. In the words of business guru Peter Drucker, “that which is measured improves”. What is measured receives attention. The wrong measurements will divert focus from the important areas that impact success. Metrics need to be relevant, measurable and relatively simple to collect. But they must also be valid. Only a valid metric can be used as a predictor of performance. Efficiency involves costs. Since the Flight Department is a business unit that typically

consumes funds rather than directly generates revenue, how do you know if the company’s business aircraft are being operated efficiently? While the Flight Department Manager collects operating and cost data, what metrics are most meaningful to the Executive Team at Corporate headquarters? The concluding article in this series identifies the metrics that should be available to assess the successful use of Business Aviation assets. Relative to the entire corporation, the Flight Department is small. But the dollars invested can be significant, and when properly utilized the impact can be significant—far greater than the use of similar amounts of capital, personnel and time spent on other corporate endeavors. AvBuyer addresses what numbers should be available to Flight Department managers when making their case for Business Aviation. Our four part series, beginning with this overview, provides management with a framework for assuring that the corporation’s use of Business Aviation is safe, efficient and effective, beginning next month with the specifics of safety…T

What You Should Know About Avionics Appraisals: Understanding the True Value of a Retrofit or Upgrade on a Jet

Jeremy Cox draws on his experiences as an aircraft auditor to highlight how the devil is most definitely in the detail when it comes to appraising avionics systems… he Equipment List located in the Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM) often is incorrect because it has not been updated to reflect removed and/or retrofitted equipment and system components. Such has been my experience when called upon to audit aircraft for appraisal or resale. It is probable that avionics systems and component changes documented on FAA Form 337s are also found in the AFM to support the Supplements at the back of the manual. Sometimes component changes can be found in superseded

T

106

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

Weight and Balance Reports in the same AFM. My ‘go-to’ and most important source of avionics equipment ‘make and model’ data, however, is the airframe log books. The only reliable way to find everything is to sort ‘page-by-page’ through every log, carefully jotting down when installed equipment is listed in an entry. It is important to work from Back-to-Front (i.e. start by reading the ‘Latest-and-Greatest’ entries and work back from there). If you perform your audit from Front-to-Back you will be constantly scratching through noted equipment that was

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 145


BR Buying & Selling 1 Feb17.qxp_Layout 1 23/01/2017 15:09 Page 2

subsequently replaced by a newer system or component. I am a great advocate for Computerized Aircraft Maintenance Programs (CAMP) used to track the status of an aircraft. However, as with anything that requires human data input, the adage “garbage in; garbage out” is key. Therefore, I avoid collating my equipment data from any tracking program reports that are provided to me.

A History of Mandated Upgrades

The avionics system changes and upgrades viewed through the log books usually read as though I was reading a regulatory mandate calendar. It’s usual to see a mid-1980s to mid-1990s aircraft have a Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) installed as an aftermarket item. As TCAS progressed into today’s Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS-II), I see these same TCAS systems getting upgraded to meet the hybrid surveillance requirements that will become law on 1/1/2020 through ADS-B Out. Next came Satellite Communications Systems as Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

well as Ground-based Airborne Telephone Communications Systems. It also became possible to receive broadcast television while in-flight. Many of the Satellite-driven systems had immense pricetags for those that wanted to enjoy this new technology at the time. With the new millennium came the requirement for Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS), which were mandated for 3/29/2001 and required existing systems to be interfaced with a GPS system to ensure position accuracy. All transatlantic-capable aircraft as well as Europe-based aircraft then had to have their Communications Transceivers upgraded to extended frequency ranges, commonly known as ‘8.33 kHz spacing’. Onboard VHF Navigation Receivers also had to receive an internal modification making them immune to non-aviation FM broadcast signals; a modification commonly known as ‘FM Immunity’. As the skies of the world became crammed with more aircraft and the safety risk of keeping the aircraft that travelled the most crowded routes separated, next came the need for increased accuracy of on-board Air Data Systems and Altimeters to comply with the performance requirements of Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM), which was introduced system-wide in the US on 1/20/2005. Today, the hot avionics change items include Electronic Flight Instrumentation Systems (EFIS), Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) replacements with Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs), Future Air Navigation System (FANS), ADS-B and In-Flight Internet Connectivity, via a Wi-Fi Router.

Specific Airplane Avionics Appraisal

Above, we touched upon the fact that often a significant modification or upgrade to avionics equipment is poorly annotated in the aircraft records, and the system status can only be confirmed by either a model number or part number. If you miss any of these variables during your audit, the resulting ‘error in value’ will amount to tens-, if not hundreds-of-thousands of dollars. As an aircraft broker, I always advise clients that they will recover 50-80% of the cost of an avionics upgrade if the outlay makes the aircraft more attractive to buyers and improves its market position, with the intent of making theirs the next aircraft to sell. Yet, as an appraiser, I must make the following statements regarding avionics upgrades: www.AVBUYER.com

Avionics systems and individual equipment pieces (especially if they are highly desired and/or considered to be necessary, like Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC), ADS-B, High-Speed Internet driven Wi-Fi, etc.) could add 100% of their total cost to the appraised value of the aircraft. It is important to understand that, in the case of compliance equipment, this value increase shall be driven down to ‘zero’ as soon as the mandated deadline has been passed; Avionics are no different than any other piece of equipment. They will be depreciated over time, both by accountants and by the values determined naturally by the resale market driven by demand and availability; Aircraft Bluebook provides an avionics value depreciation chart listing the percentage of new values corresponding to equipment age (from 60% of new list price after one year, down to 30% after five); Avionics values quoted by the price/value guides, unless specified, always provide the ‘new – retail, uninstalled’ price for each system or component; New aircraft order/options price lists provide the best insight leading to more accurate base values that can be used in an appraisal; Aftermarket installation quotations are

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

www.AVBUYER.com

important in establishing base values, but there are always installation compatibility issues specific to each aircraft that are extremely hard to translate against another aircraft being appraised. The whole point of an appraisal is to provide both an accurate and credible value for the authorized recipient of the report; The appraisal process that does not evaluate and assign individual values to systems and components is not reliably accurate; there are very few ‘standard equipment’ aircraft in existence; If an aircraft is parted-out and sold piece-bypiece, the prices realized on ‘serviceable-as-removed’ avionics gear will literally be ‘pennies on the dollar’, worse than any numbers quoted by a depreciation chart, unless there is a strong demand due to a lack of availability in the marketplace.

The bottom-line ‘gotcha’ with avionics appraisal, therefore, is that all provided documentation must be minutely examined to guarantee that the actual equipment installed is what is appraised and valued. Appraising an outdated system that was removed years previously is indeed an example of unprofessional, shoddy appraisal work that is (in my opinion) unforgiveable. T Aircraft Index see Page 145

ith demand for used aircraft mostly coming from the United States at present, buyers continue to include within their aircraft searches jets ‘For Sale’ that are based outside the US. The following paragraphs are designed to help US buyers increase their bargaining power and international sellers harness the current US-based demand. A successful international transaction requires the buyer to have a clear understanding of the technicalities of importing an aircraft. Unfamiliar costs should be considered and calculated prior to contract negotiation, and the appropriate contractual mechanism should be built into the closing/import process. Correctly managed, such homework can be accomplished easily.

In reality, though, owing to cultural differences and/or a lack of familiarity with regulations, an unwitting buyer can be sucked into a black hole of convoluted negotiation ambiguity—a fate that can burn time and money (and the opportunity to purchase another aircraft). From the selling perspective, it is vital for international sellers to send the right message by understanding the market demand coming from the US and showing a willingness to adjust their pricing expectation. As an example, the time and expense of international travel as well as the process of switching an aircraft from EASA to FAA jurisdiction can be considerable for the buyer. Therefore, a savvy seller will appreciate the buyer’s perspective and integrate planned ‘concessions’ into the negotiation  to help sell the aircraft more quickly. Aircraft Index see Page 145

Depreciation Aware

“ Often, however, the respective parties to a transaction fail to consider the cultural differences, misreading the signals being sent from the other side.”

112

Obviously achieving the right price needs a balanced approach by buyer and seller. But sellers have to be keenly aware of the cost of owning the aircraft for a longer period as a delay to the sale occurs, and truly understand the impact of depreciation. It is not uncommon to find an international seller holding out for ‘just a little longer’, passing on an offer deemed too low only to sell their jet for dramatically less further down the line. We are aware of an aircraft that was not sold a year ago because the seller rejected a solid offer that was 13% higher than today’s ask price. When combined with the other costs of ownership during that period, the seller’s loss is probably closer to 20%. This example is a clear case of a seller suffering as a result of eschewing trusted guidance to make the right decision at the right time.

International Etiquette

Most obstacles to international aircraft sales are surmountable. Often, however, the respective parties to a transaction fail to consider the cultural differences, misreading the signals being sent from the other side of the negotiating table before and during closing. The US buyer needs a clear signal regarding when they have a partner who is serious in their commitment to sell the aircraft and close the deal. Detecting that sign can be very difficult if the buyer is unfamiliar with local business practices. Misreading of cultural cues and etiquette, one party can easily gain a false expectation or understanding of the other side. Whether in client consultation meetings or crossborder negotiations between buyer and seller, such miscommunication can lead to unnecessary waste of time and money at best, and a missed opportunity at worst.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – February 2017

www.AVBUYER.com

While it is ideal for all parties within the transaction to adopt a direct manner, culturally some sellers will be perceived as ‘hiding’ information and motives. This may be expected practice within the seller’s culture, and US buyers need to be clear on these customs to avoid misunderstandings and loss of trust during the transaction. That said, there are extreme cases in which an aircraft and its equipment may be deliberately misrepresented, or a company is hiding its involvement in pending litigation. A buyer must be discerning to tell the difference. Ultimately, the seller as well as the broker will likely have advisors within their own region. Between them they will be able to read into the motives of the seller early in negotiations.

In Summary

The best way to move forward with an international transaction is to partner with a broker representative who can demonstrate deep industry knowledge in multiple regions and has a long history of success in transactions around the world. Familiarity with technical aspects of trans-border transactions is required, along with strong industry connections that will reinforce a deal structure and offer insight into understanding ‘cultural norms’. In today’s used jet sales market, the best value may come from an aircraft under international ownership. This is an exciting time in our industry, and we expect international sellers to continue to drive the market on the supply side for the time being. As demand and aircraft values strengthen in the domestic US market, those international opportunities will become increasingly alluring – and all participants could benefit. An understanding of international business etiquette becomes crucial to make sure you’re proceeding down the right path, with the right seller, and not wasting time and missing a good opportunity elsewhere.

PRODUCTS & SERVICES 328 Support Services GmbH

Gogo’s 4G High-speed Wi-Fi System

Has recently partnered with USA-based Duncan Aviation to deliver and certify a full cabin completion on a Finnish registered, Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft. Following 328’s work on the EASA certification, the aircraft was delivered to the customer on time last month. 328 Support Services was responsible for verifying all the engineering data involved in the project as well as certifying the modification with a new EASA Part 21 Minor Change Approval. On the other hand, Duncan Aviation undertook all the production, installation and testing activity at Duncan’s full service facility in Battle Creek, Michigan. The project features a stylish new interior design for the 604’s cabin, including new grey carpet throughout the flight deck, galley, cabin and entrance hallway. www.328.eu

Gogo’s 4G High-speed Wi-Fi System is being installed in the Dassault Falcon 2000, and the availability of the service is expected in the near future. Western Aircraft is developing an STC to install the system in the Falcon 2000, one of several STCs in the works covering a number of popular business jets. Duncan Aviation, with several locations around the US, is developing STCs for Gogo’s 4G system for Gulfstream 200, Dassault Falcon 900, and Bombardier’s Global Express and Challenger 600. Constant Aviation will offer the 4G installation at its four locations, with STCs for the Embraer 145 series Shuttle, Legacy 600/650, Phenom 300 and Gulfstream V. Textron Aviation will also develop STCs for the 4G system to be installed in its Citations, Hawkers and King Airs, though no specific platforms have been announced yet. In addition to the specific STC offerings, all of these dealers will participate as partners for hardware sales and installations for Gogo’s 4G system on other business aircraft. www.gogoair.com

A former aircraft stripping hangar was renovated and now serves as a new, 12,000square-foot, state-of-the-art paint hangar that will accommodate aircraft sized up to a Bombardier Global Express. The hangar now has a computer-driven side draft airflow system that triple-filters the air and will allow aircraft to be stripped, painted, primed and striped in that hangar. It also has new, adjustable and energy-efficient LED lighting. he renovation was managed by Tectonic Management Group with Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek Facilities team coordinating between Tectonic, the BTL Paint Department and a plethora of contractors. www.duncanaviation.aero

Tri-Jets have earned a stellar reputation among owners and operators and usually command higher resale values than the competition. With efficient space management the Falcon 900 aircraft have a larger passenger seating area than the Gulfstream IV. These Tri-Jets weigh 15 tons less and are 22 feet shorter, providing a more beneficial ramp presence. The 900EX can speed across the Atlantic with all seats full at 0.84 IMN; and has 300 NM greater range than the Gulfstream IV-SP. Furthermore, the 900EX can fly from London to Kansas City, Buenos Aires to New Orleans and Anchorage to Seoul at 0.75 IMN with eight passengers and NBAA IFR reserves. The Falcon 900EX equipped with API's Blended Winglets and the Falcon 900LX are considerably more capable than the Falcon 900EX. Revolutionary and the world's first purpose built fly-by-wire (FBW) business jet, the Falcon 7X capitalizes on Mach 2 technology.

AVAILABLE: FALCON 900B
