PRE-OWNED FALCON

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

Editor’s Welcome Uncertainty

P

erhaps the Chinese curse about living in interesting times should be changed to… ‘May you live in uncertain times’… With many changes occurring throughout the globe, uncertainty seems to be the only constant. International experts are not sure how or when the UK’s vote to leave the European Union will unfold. Political groups that a year ago were on the fringe in France and other countries of Western Europe now appear to be in play in upcoming elections. Is the political stability of Asia about to change as new dynamics develop between China and Taiwan, Japan rethinks its policies on national defense and North Korea continues to pursue intercontinental missiles for propelling its nuclear weapons? Will a new level of nationalism abound throughout the globe, and could there be significant changes in international trade? While Donald J. Trump, the surprise winner of the 2016 US Presidential election, has left little doubt that his focus will be on creating jobs and accelerating the US economy by cutting taxes and spending billions on infrastructure when he takes office on January 20th, much uncertainty surrounds how the US Congress will respond. Mr. Trump has pledged to enact the biggest tax cuts since the 1980s. Also, he has stated that he likes to use debt as a means of stimulating growth. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned recently that he considers current US debt “dangerous and unacceptable” and wants any overhaul of US taxes to be revenue neutral. Some financial experts have warned that rapid stimulation of the economy by increasing the national debt—even if designed to be temporary—could lead to massive inflation and then recession. Others support the boost that they say tax cuts and massive government spending will create. Uncertainty also seems to be a key element of Mr. Trump’s management style. A good negotiator, he keeps his cards close to his chest and plays them pragmatically in response to the situation that presents itself. Will Mr. Trump, an owner and operator of several business jets and clearly a person who appreciates the value of Business Aviation, look favorably on our community? Or will he side with the big airlines on issues surrounding reform of the Federal Aviation Administration and privatization of the

US National Airspace System? Business men and woman hate uncertainty. Yet they have no choice but to deal with it—particularly now. What is certain is the value that on-demand mobility via business aircraft provides. Scheduled airlines have fixed schedules to specific locations where travel demand is high. Business opportunities surface in locations were travel demand is low—often with little advance notice. Only Business Aviation, whether flown in company-owned aircraft or by charter operators, is able to provide mobility on demand. Count on the value of Business Aviation—a necessary resource that indeed is certain.

This Month

In this edition, we look ahead to the coming months of 2017 – specifically to the used aircraft market, asking the Dealers and Brokers what their views are, and through Vref’s Quarterly update. Rollie Vincent, meanwhile, leads our Market Indicators selection with comment on the BizAv Industry today. Ken Elliott continues his discussion on Upgrading Your Business Jet, while Aviation Director Andre Fodor offers tips on selecting the right facility for your maintenance work, and Dave Higdon weighs the arguments for and against OEM and PMA aircraft parts. Also for the Flight Department, Mario Pierobon continues his series on Improving Aviation Safety Management, and we highlight the safety implications of inadequate use of the aircraft checklist. Mike Chase features the Cessna Citation Excel in this month’s Comparative Analysis, while the Ultra Long Range & Large Cabin jets are the focus of this month’s Aircraft Specifications and Values sections. For the Boardroom, David Wyndham highlights the urgency to act on upcoming aircraft mandates, Jeremy Cox discusses the need for an Onsite Aircraft Appraisal (versus a Desktop Valuation), Aircraft Broker Jet Tolbert argues why, in spite of uncertainty, 2017 is the time to jump into the market, and Keith Swirsky and Chris Younger conclude GKG Law’s series on importing a used aircraft. Regardless of the uncertainty, the AvBuyer team wishes you all a peaceful and prosperous New Year ahead. Jack Olcott Editorial Director, AvBuyer

MARKET INDICATORS  BIZAV INTELLIGENCE

Business Aviation Market Summary

What Does 2017 Have in Store for the Industry? In a welcome bit of news for Business Aviation, the collective sentiment of business aircraft owners and operators improved considerably as the Year 2016 closed, based on results of the Q4 2016 JETNET iQ Survey, shares Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators… ased on more than 500 respondents in 58 countries, the uptick in global sentiment reflects the first Quarter-over-Quarter (QoQ) improvement since Q4 2015. With the notable exception of Latin America, respondents in all major world regions – led by Europe and the US - seem to be feeling better about the state of the Business Aviation industry in the current business cycle. The mood amongst owners and operators in Mexico and Brazil – the second and third largest markets for business jets worldwide – has unfortunately darkened, possibly reflecting concerns about the impact of the US Presidential election on international trade agreements such as NAFTA and the ongoing recession, currency depreciation and never ending political scandals that continue to rock Brazil.

B

Better Times Portended?

In a development that could portend better times for Large Cabin business jet and Medium-to-Heavy Rotorcraft sales in this New Year, oil prices had moved to US$53 per barrel (West Texas Intermediate and Brent crude oil) at press time, up sharply from a post-global recession nadir of US$26 in January 2016. With OPEC agreeing to a 2% supply reduction and hopes that non-OPEC members will also limit their production, oil prices are set to increase as we move into 2017 and beyond. The US economy looks quite robust, expanding by a respectable 3.2% on an annualized basis in Q3 2016 (the fastest growth measured in eight Quarters), with leading indicators such as the US Purchasing Managers’ Index trending upwards for the last five Quarters. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, an index of 30 of some of the largest US listed companies, was approaching a record high of 20,000 at press time, up almost 11% from early November in the days just before the US Presidential election. The US Federal Reserve, meanwhile, raised its range of federal funds rates by 0.25% to 0.50%-to-0.75%, and signalled the possibility of three more 0.25% rate hikes in 2017, citing a strengthening US economy.

Does it spread to BizAv?

In the business aircraft market, business jet inventory ‘For Sale’ settled at 11.3%, while whole retail transactions of used Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

business jets totalled 2,231 aircraft for the 12 months ended November 2016, a respectable performance and relatively flat (down about -1%) Year-over-Year (YoY), according to JETNET databases. Days-on-market for business jets that have sold in the last 12 months averaged 308 days, which is down (a good thing) about 2% YoY. The big story in Business Aviation during 2016 was the continuing sharp drop in aircraft pricing and valuations, which was particularly focused on the Large Cabin jet segment. Prices for soon-to-be out of production high-end models such as the G450 and G550 have fallen rapidly, with 2015-build aircraft dropping 30% or more in value in the latest Vref retail pricing guides. For some value-oriented buyers, 4-5 year-old models that have already lost up to half or more of their original value yet still retain that “fresh leather” aroma can be a very attractive buy right now. For buyers not intimidated by 5-10 year old assets, classic models like the Gulfstream G550, Bombardier Global XRS and Dassault Falcon 900EX offer many of the features and performance values of newer aircraft, with little annual depreciation in the ‘flat portion’ of their residual value curve. This can be a ‘big deal’ for buyers, who might otherwise be hit by a depreciation cost in the thousands of dollars per hour (in 

some cases, matching or even exceeding the cost of operating the airplane). Used (or, in Embraer’s more elegant parlance, ‘pre-flown’) aircraft on cost-per-hour programs with clean pedigrees and an attractive ‘maintenance exposure to asking price ratio’ (see Asset Insight article on p26) offer very good buying opportunities today for the savvy purchaser.

2017: Where to From Here?

Well…, it’s complicated! The US looks like the place for aircraft salespeople to be in 2017. A more robust US economy (the US Federal Reserve has modestly increased its outlook for real GDP growth to 2.1% in 2017) – fueled by President-elect Trump’s promise of lower corporate tax rates, deregulation and higher infrastructure spending – should drive unemployment even lower than today’s 4.6% and drive inflation somewhat higher and closer to the US Federal Reserve’s 2% target. This should stimulate higher capital spending by US corporations and High Net-Worth Individuals. A strong $US (which was at a 14-year peak against a basket of major world currencies at press time) will encourage higher imports of product and services, but will also increase the effective cost of US-dollar priced assets like business aircraft to prospective international buyers. Other things being equal, we would expect a strong $US to 16

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

drive higher spending on (now cheaper) international goods and services. This would further increase the US trade deficit, which is already at about $500bn per year and continues to be a politically-charged sound bite in the current environment. The good news: Higher US trade deficits could put pressure on centrally-managed economies like China to purchase highdollar assets like US-built commercial and business aircraft. This would be good for Boeing, Gulfstream and Textron in particular. On the other hand, the potential for a trade war between the US and China could drive this same business towards Airbus, Dassault, Bombardier and Embraer. Ah! The world turns, and it will be as important as ever in 2017 to be prepared to live in interesting times – ironically, just what an ancient Chinese curse warned us about. MI www.rollandvincent.com 

BizAv Activity - North America

Reviewing year-over-year (YoY) flight activity (November 2016 vs. November 2015), Argus TRAQPak data indicate that November 2016 posted an increase of 4.9%... The results by operational category YoY showed significant gains across the board with Part 135 activity rising a substantial 7.6% over November 2015. Part 91 activity followed with a gain of 4.1%, and Fractional activity rose a modest 1.2%. The aircraft categories were all positive and were led, again, by a 7.6% increase from Large Cabin jets.

Month-Over-Month

November Business Aviation flight activity posted a Month-over-Month (MoM) decrease, which is the normal historic trend, from October; November activity finished down -5.5%. Results by operational category were all red for the month, with Fractional down -5.5%, Part 135 down -3.7% and Part 91 activity down -6.6%. The aircraft categories were all down, too, with the largest MoM decrease coming in the turboprop sector, down -6.6% from October. MI www.argus.aero

November 2016 versus November 2015

November 2016 versus October 2016

BizAv Activity Europe There were 58,111 Business Aviation departures in Europe in November 2016, according to WingX’s latest monthly Business Aviation Monitor, representing a 0.8% growth in YoY activity. For six of 11 months recorded to date for 2016, there has been some YoY growth, although the YTD trend still trails 2015 activity by -0.2%. November’s results were offset by declines in Turboprop and Piston activity. Business Jet flights were up 3% in November and now have a positive 12month rolling average, with Small Jet activity providing most of the growth. Business Aviation flights from Western Europe were up in November, bolstered by growth in UK, France and Italy, which outweighed declines in Germany, Switzerland and Spain. Southern Europe was flat this month, and Eastern Europe slightly down. YoY growth in AOC flights exceeded 10% in France and Italy and were up 4% in the UK, in contrast to flat or declining Private flights in all three markets. Germany had the largest overall decline, 297 fewer flights YoY, while Spain saw the biggest AOC decline at -8% YOY. Elsewhere in Europe, the largest declines came in Poland and Belgium, while the declines in Turkey and Russia seem to have bottomed out, down -3% and -1% respectively this month. There was substantial growth this month in the Nordics, also in Portugal and Czech Republic. “Business Aviation activity was only slightly up in November, not enough to change the YTD decline compared to last year,” noted Richard Koe, WingX Advance’s Managing Director. “However, a slowdown in Piston and Turboprop activity is weighing down the trend; underlying Business Jet activity was up this month; and the Business Jet charter market has been quite lively for a number of months, especially in the lighter jet segments.” MI www.wingx-advance.com  continued on page 24

Safety Survey: Industry Best Practices Most Business Aviation operators engage in annual risk assessment and profiling, according to the results of NBAA’s 2016 Business Aviation Safety Survey. Those results are now available to the Association’s members... More than 800 industry professionals of all roles and specialties provided their company’s safety data for the survey, more than doubling the response rate from last year’s inaugural survey. Key Findings: • 60% of dual-pilot operators reported they go to recurrent training twice annually; • Most single-pilot respondents (62%) indicated they train once annually, and 28% train twice per year; • A significant majority of operations have some form of safety reporting process, with 73% of respondents saying they have comprehensive awareness of safety reports and issues across their organization; • Distraction, fatigue, professionalism and time pressure continue to be the top potential triggers for mishaps.

Boeing Bounces Back

“I was really impressed by the engagement in the survey,” said Paul Ratté, director of aviation safety programs for USAIG and team lead of the NBAA Safety Committee’s Risk Assessment Team. “There’s a passion in the community for safety.” Ratté’s team prepared 30 questions on topics such as dual- and single-pilot best practices, formal training expectations and safety reporting policies. Most survey questions were intentionally close-ended for data collection purposes, but Ratté noted that 1,200 unique responses to an open-ended query about respondents’ top three perceived safety risks will help the Safety Committee direct its focus to the most pressing concerns of business aircraft operators. “Anything the Safety Committee does can only really be enacted through the practitioners of Business Aviation,” concluded Ratté. “We felt like it was necessary to understand what was on their minds, what are they thinking.” MI www.nbaa.org

Boeing sees sales of its business jets rebounding over the next two years after a “tough” 2016, BBJ President David Longridge said at a press conference in Dubai last month. Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) blames uncertainty created by Britain's Brexit vote and the US Presidential election for its significant decrease in 2016 sales compared with 2015. Boeing booked sales in 2016 for three business jets compared to 10 in 2015, and 14 in 2014. “Now the elections are over and Brexit is decided we're starting to see things pick up,” Longridge said. “I think over the next two years we'll go back to the kind of six to eight airplanes that we saw more regularly in the past four years,” he said. MI www.boeing.com

Impressive Middle East Deliveries New research from Global Jet Capital reveals that 293 Mid-Size to Large private jets were delivered to the Middle East between 2006 and 2015, with an estimated combined value of over $14.65 billion… According to Global Jet Capital, Mid-Size to Large private jets delivered to the Middle East typically cost between $25-75m each, and up to 80% of the funding used to purchase these is sourced through external financing. The largest number of deliveries were made to Turkey (77), followed by the United Arab Emirates (63) and Saudi Arabia (58). “Around 40% of the fleet of Mid-Size to Large private jets in the Middle East delivered between 2006 and 2015,” according to Simon Davies, sales director for the Middle East, Global Jet Capital.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition An Asset Insight market analysis conducted on November 30, 2016, covering 91 fixed-wing models and 1,940 aircraft listed for sale, revealed a 3.1% increase in ask prices, among other things… Ask Prices for tracked models increased 3.1% – the third consecutive monthly increase – but are still 6.2% lower than they were twelve months ago. Medium and Small Jets lost ground—2.1% and 2.3% respectively. However, while Medium Jet Ask Prices fell 14.4% (and posted a record low figure in November), Small Jet figures climbed 17.5% over the past twelve months. Large Jets gained 5.9% since October, while Turboprop Ask Prices fell a nominal 0.2%. Over the past twelve months, Large Jet Ask Prices have fallen 3.2%, while Turboprops have experienced a 3.4% reduction.

Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition

As represented in Table A (right), overall Asset Quality remained ‘Excellent’, but Maintenance Exposure set a 12-month high/worst figure. Specifically: • After improving for three consecutive months, the Asset Insight Quality Rating fell 2.1 AI2 basis points (~4%), to 5.380 from last month’s 5.401, on our scale of -2.5 to 10. • The tracked fleet’s average Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/embedded maintenance expense) worsened/increased slightly to $1.476m from October’s $1.473m.

Table A

Table B

Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

Table B shows that the tracked fleet’s ETP Ratio (an aircraft’s Maintenance Exposure divided by its Ask Price) posted its third consecutive monthly improvement at 52.4%, versus last month’s 54.2%. We consider 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 23 months. Turboprops posted the best/lowest figure at 43.0%, followed closely by Large Jets at 43.7% (the group’s highest/worst figure for the past twelve months). Small Jets were at 53.9% (their 12-month best), while Medium Jets achieved their worst 12-month figure at 63.0%.

Market Summary

Small Jets continued to offer the best value given the group’s Excellent Quality Rating, 12-month low ETP Ratio, and above average Ask Price – and it appears to be eroding less than that for all other groups with respect to actual transaction pricing. Similarly, Turboprops are seeing less erosion between Ask and actual transaction value. With the best ETP Ratio among the four groups, reasonable Asset Quality and Maintenance Exposure figures (along with below average Ask Prices), buyers and sellers should be able to find common ground. The Large Jet Quality Rating once again reached the ‘Outstanding’ level, and the group did post a 5.9% increase in Ask Price. However, a 2.8% increase in Maintenance Exposure raised the ETP Ratio to a 12-month high/worst figure (a 27.8% increase over the past twelve months). Ask Price has decreased 3.3% during the past twelve months, and the Quality Rating trend line turned negative this month. This is unlikely to help the high erosion percentage between Ask and Transaction pricing. Medium Jets posted a 12-month high/worst ETP Ratio, along with a record low Ask Price. With a 12-month high Maintenance Exposure figure, ongoing deterioration between Ask and Transaction Price was likely to result if owners were seeking to sell before 2016’s end. These insightful metrics can be challenging to derive without knowledgeable support. If you are contemplating an aircraft purchase, spend the nominal funds to run comprehensive, comparative analytics between all reasonable candidate assets. It only takes a small oversight to misread a low price as good value. T MI www.assetinsightinc.com

2016 Year-End Used Aircraft Market Update

Another Year Passes, Used Aircraft Markets Steadily Slip Drawing together input from a variety of used aircraft Dealers

and Brokers, Dave Higdon offers a review of the 2016 marketplace and looks to used aircraft sales prospects for 2017…

Northeastern US-based used aircraft broker, speaking at NBAA-BACE in early November, noted of the market, “It's been a little bit like trying to stand on a skating rink that's tilted...things can't help but slide toward the low side. That's what we've been doing [in 2016]—sliding down. Not too fast, but steadily.” If you haven't heard the news, you probably spent

A 30

more time watching election coverage than following the used business jet and turboprop markets: things are trending down; decidedly down in terms of used aircraft sales, and up in the percentage of the fleet available ‘For Sale’. Neither trend exacts much enthusiasm among the population of dealers and brokers as we head into 2017 – at least, not from most. But a small collection

Buying & Selling 1 Jan172.qxp_Finance 19/12/2016 12:49 Page 2

The Brightest Spot: Turboprops

The used turboprop segment has held the closest to steady over the past year, with an almost imperceptible decline in the percentage of the fleet offered ‘For Sale’; an approximately 5-6% gain in the units sold; and virtually no perceptible change in asking prices. ‘Average time on market’ declined by almost two weeks over the year. Not coincidentally, the turboprop segment provided the sole “bright spot” among new aircraft deliveries reported by GAMA for Q3 2016, where deliveries gained 1.3% to 379 shipments compared to Q3 2015. According to our Northeast broker, “The trend is difficult to fathom when you have a growing job base, solid profit reports, good GDP (Gross Domestic Product) numbers and a stock market at all-timehighs. It feels a little like prospective buyers are holding back out of worries over an unknown they can't themselves explain. It's not the same as eight years ago, when everything was crashing down in the Great Recession. “All in all, the US is doing pretty well,” he summarized, following the November 8 election. Indeed, UBS labeled the condition of the market as a “global bizjet malaise” in November.

“Nobody seems to be running for the lifeboats. But some are keeping their PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) handy.”

of brokers AvBuyer contacted offered a slightly different perspective collectively. “On the plus side we've got plenty of inventory available to sell to our prospects.” But even these ‘glass half-full’ practitioners admit that the market deceleration makes for fewer dollars flowing through the system – while the need grows to advertise, market and promote their wares. What little strength these brokers and dealers see exists mostly overseas. With all of that said, the market has not “gone over the falls,” a West Coast dealer qualifies. “Nobody seems to be running for the lifeboats. But some are keeping their PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) handy.” Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

According to UBS, Q3 2016 deliveries declined 5% globally – a drop that would have been worse had shipments to North America not grown 9% and those to Western Europe gained 13%. The strength of those two markets helped offset steep drops in deliveries to China, South America, Latin America, and lesser drops in Asia, Middle East and Europe's developing markets. UBS' report mirrored data from JETNET, which reported global business jet transactions declined more than 2% through the first nine months of 2016 – with projections for continued declines in both business jets and helicopters going forward into 2017. “All those international markets that helped buoy sales for the past 3-4 years started retreating late in 2015 and continued to contract,” explained a Southeast broker shortly after Thanksgiving. “Two, three years ago we could barely keep up with calls from China and the Pacific Rim markets. Today we can barely get through to prospects unless we have a large-cabin, long-range jet. Even then they're not exactly rushing to buy. “As for the US market, some prospects aren't thrilled with GDP growth, even though we've had steady, if not stellar, gains in all but a couple of quarters going back to the start of the decade.” The consensus view is that business aircraft sales perform better when GDP hits and exceeds 3%; the www.AVBUYER.com

last quarters to show GDP growth of 3% or better came in 2013 and 2014 – including a couple of quarters with GDP growth of 4% or more. Sales of used business jets and turboprops fared well, but didn't exactly leap in growth during those periods. Last year—2016—began strongly enough, with used aircraft sales showing gains in the first six months. But that changed in Q3 strongly enough to offset the earlier growth. According to various dealers and brokers, Q4 continued the trend of Q3. Only the Heavy Jet segment appears likely to show flat growth or a modest gain over 2015 when 2016’s final statistics are tallied in the next few weeks. Late in 2016 the used Heavy Jet segment showed gains of between 5-6%. But at the same time the percentage of the Heavy Jet fleet available ‘For Sale’ edged upward throughout the year, approaching 8% as the year closed out.

A Year-End Rush?

With asking prices down, used aircraft inventory up and transactions down, many brokers and dealers were looking for some help from a year-end surge to close out transactions while buyers could still take advantage of favorable tax treatments. But not all dealers and brokers expected a year-end rush to boost the numbers enough to put them on an even footing with the end of 2015, or even the start of 2016. “We've been slowing down for six months, and based on what we're hearing we'll be starting-off in a continuing decline going into 2017,” observed a Northeast broker. “If anything pushes some to make their deals in December, it's going to be the prospect of the Federal Reserve finally boosting interest rates, as its been hinting for weeks. “Personally, with interest rates for aircraft finance where they are (below traditional levels) I don't think a Fed rate increase will be a motive source. The change won't be enough that it can't be offset with a little higher down-payment.” Then there’s the market saturation, added a West Coast dealer. “Some Light Jet owners I've talked to recently say they're holding-off changing their airplane until some of the newer models begin delivering. Some are hoping to find delivery positions they can get for new production aircraft. That solves all their concerns about ADS-B mandates and 32

“Personally, with interest rates for aircraft finance where they are (below traditional levels) I don't think a Fed rate increase will be a motive source.” - Northeast Broker

retrofitting technologies in their current aircraft.” Indeed, the ADS-B mandate seems to be on the minds of more than a few buyers, according to the Northeast broker. “There are more solutions today for Part 25 aircraft than a year ago, but most of them are for older aircraft that aren't considered ‘prime metal’ today. The lack of solutions for so many Part 25 aircraft is a drag on their values, because the expense of upgrading most of them will fall in the ‘serious six-figure’ territory. “Holding out for newer models with (ADS-B) solutions approved is keeping some buyers away from attractive deals right now – and as prices slide, they're looking for a price delta that lets them cover the cost of upgrading,” the dealer concluded. And there are other technologies coming: Controller/Pilot Datalink Communications (CPDLC) and Required Navigation Performance (RNP), which put

www.AVBUYER.com

more affordable candidates at a market disadvantage - at least, until approved solutions make their way through the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) processes needed for those aircraft to upgrade. Those STCs themselves depend on avionics makers and installers tackling the process of developing systems and conducting the testing needed to win approval from airworthiness authorities.

The Sum of it all in 2017…

Taken together, it's not difficult to envision a used aircraft market facing more challenges than just model availability or asking price going into this New Year. And that could be the setting for the used aircraft market to continue its slide for the foreseeable future, say dealers and brokers from across the spectrum.

n our 2016 year-end wrap-up (see Table A), you might notice a pattern: The first five aircraft on the list are all single engine Piston. The bottom 19 is comprised of turbines. While the table includes only 2008 model year aircraft, as always it is also important to remember that each serial number is unique. There are too many variables to consider all in one chart. For example, a non-standard interior in a large cabin jet can make a difficult market seem impossible. There are several noteworthy items the Table presented, however, including:

I • • • • •

Three models increased in value over the last year, including the Cirrus SR22, Diamond DA-40 and Cessna 172S. There are 11 models that have held a steady value, most of which are piston aircraft. The next group includes a diverse mix of aircraft - there are 18 different aircraft that have lost 1–5%. There are 13 aircraft in the category that have lost 6-10% in value. Bringing up the rear is the G550, which lost 22% in the past year and a total of 54% since new (still not terrible when considering that is an average of 6% per year).

The percent of ‘New’ represented in the Table is a comparison of the original MSRP in 2008 to either Q4 2015 or 2016 Vref used retail price. If we were to consider only the percent of New from Q4 2016, there are a total of 19 different aircraft that are still 60% or greater of their new value, meaning that these 19 aircraft are depreciating at a nine-year average of less than 4.5%. Twelve other aircraft are depreciating at a 9-year average of less than 6% considering that these are all nine years old now, that’s not too shabby. The Quest Kodiak takes the number one spot at 87% of New, while bringing up the bottom of this category is the Learjet 60XR at only 25% of New.

In Summary

The reality is that we don’t buy aircraft as an appreciating asset. Of Course, there are always going to be a few that will surprise us and trend up, but for the rest of us a steady market would be a cheerful improvement. This is the “(not so) New Normal”. It is our love of flying that keeps our heads in the clouds. More information: www.vrefonline.com T Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Upgrading Your Aircraft (Part 2)

The Common Sense Approach to Upgrading your Private Jet Over the next several articles, Ken Elliott covers the nuts and bolts of upgrading your aircraft to meet mandates and/or improve its performance and capability. uring the coming months, we aim to discuss how best to determine the upgrade path for your new or used business jet or turboprop. This is a complex and often confusing subject for pilots, aviation directors and aircraft owners, alike. Acquiring a jet for sale with all the right bells and whistles would be the ideal situation, but even for a new build, the aircraft may not be fully equipped to meet all operational requirements, especially those that are still on the horizon. Because requirements constantly shift and change, some aircraft and equipment manufacturers take a ‘wait-and-see’ approach, incrementally upgrading and approving their boxes, to align themselves with requirements as they solidify.

D

Fully Equipped vs ‘Fully Equipped’

Confusingly for operators, an aircraft listed as fully equipped and complaint may not be all the way there. Typically, the two main issues with equipment are the currency of the part number(s) and the level of its software. Each box, module or card in an aircraft system will have its own part number, software level and 38

separately, in some cases, a modification status. So, note there are these three elements to consider. The status of one system can be multiplied for numerous systems, based on the size and complexity of the aircraft you own. This takes some research on behalf of the company undertaking the technical evaluation of an aircraft. Furthermore, relying on documentation alone can be risky. Log book entries, tracked backwards from most recent, may be the closest to a true reflection of equipment status, apart from a physical inspection of the aircraft itself. Meanwhile there are robust maintenance tracking systems that should be up-to-date with included part numbers. However, as depicted in Figure A, part numbers are not always the ‘full story’. Another associated area of confusion is derived from aircraft systems being so integrated. A system being upgraded is only part of the proper solution. So, for example, Version X of System A is dependent upon System B, being Version Z. The way the two systems communicate with each other across their collective data bus is dependent upon a change in one system being accommodated for within another. Today, aircraft are

Avionics JAN17.qxp_Finance 19/12/2016 15:23 Page 2

full of ‘Systems of Systems’, where equipment manufacturers control the data dialogue and make it tough for another vendor to ‘bolt on’ a different system. Taking the control issue a little further, when you purchase a product (or the aircraft that includes it) you may be unaware that all the features you read about online, or in the brochure, may not be automatically available on your specific aircraft. Although the feature is fully capable of being active, it takes an additional fee for your maintenance provider to be given a key code, dongle device or some other means, to turn the feature on. A common example has been the capability of Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) to display, third-party video inputs, such as EVS, weather or maps. Another example is ‘basic’ versus ‘enhanced’ performance, common across several popular aircraft systems. This way, OEMs can offer basic services for ‘Fee Base A’ and separately, a wider range of services for the higher ‘Fee Base B’.

What is Fully-Equipped?

There are different interpretations of fully equipped, the most relevant being ‘the aircraft is equipped to adequately perform within the airspace and regions for which it was designed’. There are two major categories of equipage that take the aircraft beyond its basic factory configuration, however. For new aircraft, these include options that may or may not be installed upon delivery. The two categories are: Mandates & Requirements for Operations: • ADS-B Out • Data Communication • PBN • Data Recording (with FANS) • TCAS 7.1

most situations (such as ADS-B Out), and those that are elective based on operational choices (such as FANS). There are a whole series of incremental operational requirements being introduced that translate into mandatory equipage changes for most operators. They are phased in regionally, between now and 2020. These mandates and operational requirements are satisfied by implementing equipage upgrades, replacements and additions, or the loading of software changes. Generally, the older the airframe the more complex will be the solution (see Figure B, overleaf). It is safe to assume that most ‘nice to have’ upgrades follow the same complexity guideline.

Upgrades & Changes via a STC/TC

As we are mostly dealing with upgrades, it’s worth a few words on the subject of STCs and TCs, these drawn-out certification programs being complex in themselves. Most would say the time and effort to complete an STC is longer than the work undertaken on the aircraft. For an aircraft owner, understanding these processes is very important - especially if you are the ‘launch aircraft’. Following are a few noteworthy aspects of STCs and TCs: 1 2

The STC is for previously delivered aircraft, and is popular with third-party modification facilities. The TC relates to the aircraft and its equipment, as provided and controlled by the manufacturer. An Amended STC relates to changes to existing equipage or the airframe, but not replacement by another completely different system. Someone must be first… The STC relates to the initial installation of a system or major  Figure A: Breakdown of the Currency Status of Just One Typical System Integrated in an Aircraft.

component to an aircraft where there is no previous precedent. A version of STCs known as Approved Model List (AML) caters to the precedent case, being used for very similar upgrades across multiple aircraft platforms. Fortunately, several ADS-B Out solutions fall into the AML STC category, making it less burdensome for operators of different aircraft types then to repeat the whole initial STC process. If there is not an STC or Amended TC for your aircraft, (or in the case of the OEM, a change order or factory bulletin), then you may need to go through the STC process, which is time consuming and expensive. You can expect volumes of paperwork, significant ground and flight testing, and at least some issues to occur. Thus it is reasonable to expect a deal with the equipment provider and your MRO. Once an STC has been issued to an aircraft of a single type, it can be applied to other similarly equipped aircraft. That is a huge benefit for an operator. The operator may be forced to go to the MRO that owns the STC, or the STC owner may sell it to another capable MRO and not to the operator. TCs can cover a range of models for a type of aircraft. One example is the Bombardier Challenger 600 Series (600 through 605), but with the caveat that the upgrade will involve the same activity on each model. For avionics upgrades, that is a tall order! Sometimes STCs can be deviated from with minor changes that are either covered under ‘Designated Authority’ or locally ‘Field Approved’.

Upgrades & Changes by Service Changes

Just as STCs and TCs are a means to upgrade aircraft, aircraft and equipment manufacturers as designers of the original product have an easier path when it comes to the boxes or minor changes to the aircraft. Service changes from equipment providers come in the form of Service Bulletins, either as software or 40

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

hardware. They need to be approved by the aircraft manufacturer in many cases and can constitute complex modifications. Different manufacturers use different terminologies; for example, Gulfstream uses ‘Aircraft Service Change’. A simple way to look at these is to treat box improvements as equipment service bulletins and system upgrades as aircraft service bulletins. Most ADS-B factory upgrades are system upgrades and not simply a box improvement, unless on the newest models. Automatic Dependent Surveillance—Broadcast (ADS-B) is great example of upgrade classification. Many recent ADS-B factory solutions were considered compliant until a new operating standard was introduced in the form of DO260B, which was an improvement on DO260A. So while the initial ADS-B upgrade was a major affair, the implementation of DO260B compliance should be relatively minor. Note the DO260B compliance is mandated for 2020.

Common-Sense Approach to Upgrading

An upgrade assumes anything from adding power outlets in the cabin to a full Satcom with High Speed Data. The same rules apply for any modification. Significant savings in time and cost, with less aircraft disturbance and risk, can be accomplished with a few common-sense rules when you upgrade your aircraft. Following is a common-sense approach to upgrading: • Select the Maintenance Repair Station (can be the aircraft manufacturer) that is best for you, including location and not just price. • Obtain multiple quotes for the work. Make sure reviews of pricing and downtime are compared ‘apples to apples’. • Combine work to be accomplished with inspections and other maintenance, such as APU and engine service. • Relationships are very important, and they need to be based on trust and integrity. However, they should not bind you. New, healthy relationships can always be created. • Look at shop experience and capability for your type and model of aircraft. • Look at the facility itself. Pay a visit ahead of approving a proposal if the facility is new to you. Can the facility physically accommodate the aircraft and does it have adequate Ground Support Equipment (GSE)? • Are the employees adequately trained and experienced? As we draw closer to the ADS-B 2020 deadline, ask the shop how many ‘contract employees’ will be assigned to your aircraft. • Discuss the project’s certification process and any risks. • If you do not have a Director of Maintenance on site, hire a technical consultant to babysit the project and request a customer office, if available.

An Early Aircraft Upgrade Underway

Preparing the Wiring Harness for a Modern-Day Aircraft Upgrade

A True Story

“Providing MROs and aircraft manufacturers with adequate information on your aircraft is essential.”

To highlight an example of a lack of due diligence in pre-qualifying a quotation, the following story relates to a personal experience that occurred in the mid1990s… The owner of a Dassault Falcon 50EX had selected a US-based interior shop to complete a ‘rerag’ on its existing interior and to accomplish other cabin improvements. At that time, there existed mandated requirements for significant avionics upgrades that this aircraft needed. Heeding the need to bundle the work and reduce the additional cost associated with separating the activities, the owner requested that our company complete the work at the interior shop. Having received assurances of adequate hangar space and ground support equipment, we dispatched a full avionics team to undertake the upgrade task. To our dismay the aircraft was positioned in a Quonset Hut-style hangar, fully open on one end. The hangar was full of debris, dirt and dust, with a dead cat found in one corner. For the aircraft tail to stay below the peak height of the hangar, the nose oleo had been fully extended by adding weights and loading down the tail. The owner was due in two hours and despite a hurried clean-up he was horrified by what he saw. He eventually confessed that the interior modification had been selected as a ‘great deal’, but because of the extreme cold on the jobsite, much of the aircraft electronics testing had to be finished at avionics shop, requiring an additional trip, expense and downtime.

• • • •

All the above factors can alter the standard quotation and in some cases will do so significantly. Providing MROs and aircraft manufacturers with adequate information on your aircraft is essential. Leaving anything to a guess is a huge risk. The ideal situation is to allow the individual providing the quotation to personally review the aircraft records and physically verify (on the aircraft itself) anything that requires clarification.

In Summary

The facility providing the quotation for an upgrade will require a lot of information about your aircraft. There are many factors that can impact the conformity of the quotation to the actual aircraft. Some of these factors are:

This article covered a general overview, touching the surface of how to approach an upgrade to your aircraft. The next several articles will delve deeper with respect to the individual mandated and optional systems, equipment options and the facilities that integrate. As a final thought, it cannot be stressed enough that modifying your aircraft is a serious business with many moving parts. Owners and Aviation Directors should be personally involved in the decision process, ensuring all risks have been mitigated. The selection of the right facility and their primary point of contact is only a small part of that decision process. T

Key Considerations for Selecting Aircraft Parts

What are the Differences between OEM and PMA Parts? When your jet comes due for maintenance and the problem comes down to a part needing replacement, options exist for the aircraft owner, notes Dave Higdon. But which is the right option to take: OEM or PMA? e don't hear much anymore about Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) creating doubts over the safety of aircraft parts produced by other companies under an FAA-issued Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA). There was a time when OEMs regularly talked down PMA parts produced in competition with their own products with statements focused mainly on safety claims and violations of OEM warranties. At the request of the OEMs, in 2008 the FAA and EASA undertook a lengthy and detailed investigation into those claims and, in turn, issued SAIB NE-08-40. The investigation uncovered no evidence pointing to PMA parts being unsafe, and out of the same investigation the agencies concluded that there were no problems with their processes for approving PMA parts.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

Nonetheless, owners and operators remain ultimately responsible for the airworthiness of their aircraft, regardless of the source of parts or the employment of the technicians performing maintenance on their business aircraft. It’s understandable that some operators – particularly those who are relatively new to Business Aviation – might harbor concerns and outright confusion about the safety and legality of PMA-approved parts, and parts from the OEM (be it airframe, avionics, engines, propellers or environmental systems). Aviation generally is a complex regulatory world. The number of acronyms alone is enough to make eyes glaze over. The following paragraphs address some fundamentals about maintenance parts, whether produced by the OEM or under PMA.

OEM or PMA: What’s the Difference?

What makes a part ‘approved’; what makes it ‘OEM’; and what makes it ‘PMA’? Approved: This element is relatively simple. An approved part is one for which the FAA has issued a specific type approval, whether as an individual item or as part of an airframe, engine, etc. Parts in aircraft,

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 137


Maintenance 1 Jan.qxp_Finance 19/12/2016 15:33 Page 2

The FAA’s design approval certifies that a replacement part or part modification complies with the airworthiness standards of the aircraft, engine, rotor blade, propeller, etc. The PMA also bars a part or modification from infringing on an OEM’s patent. Second, the prospective PMA supplier must pass an FAA review of the quality assurance system used in production of the part or component, both to determine that the QA system exists and to verify that each part manufactured adheres to the FAA’s design approval.

Exceptions to Approved Parts Requirements

While certificated aircraft in general must be maintained with approved parts, exceptions do exist under three narrow conditions. None of the following three conditions allow the sale of parts produced for use in other certificated aircraft under any of these exceptions. •

engines and avionics must meet FAA standards that are specific to their role, so we have approved parts in approved engines and approved parts in approved airframes. Per FAA regulations an ‘Approved Part’ must conform to FAA-approved production standards (FAR 21.305), or be a part repaired under the terms of Part 43. Those standards cover both OEM Type Certified (TC’d) and PMA’d parts. OEM: The holder of a Type Certificate for an aircraft is the OEM. Only the TC-holder can produce parts under the TC, and those parts must be shown, labeled and documented to meet the standards of the original approval. In holding the TC, the OEM has already shown that the part(s) in question work safely in the larger product for which they're designed. That's where OEM parts come from, and the approval process under which the y exist. PMA: Parts made under Parts Manufacturing Approval can be made by any person or company choosing to undertake the process of designing, making and documenting the part's equivalence – or more – with the OEM part it duplicates. There is a significant process for any person or business pursuing PMA approval for aircraft hardware. First, they must submit for review to the FAA the design of the part to assure that it is safe and meets the requirements of the FAA regulations. It can be better than the original – but must be no less than equal in its function. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

The owner of an aircraft can make parts for installation on that owner's aircraft or appliance without a PMA or TC. The parts, as installed, must meet the requirements of FAR Part 43, however. A commercial carrier (operating under Part 121 or Part 135) may make parts for use in its own aircraft without a PMA. The use and installation of those parts must be approved in accordance with CFR Part 43 and comply with the operator’s accepted maintenance procedures manual and instructions. A maintenance shop with a repair-station license may produce parts without a PMA for use in TC'd aircraft in that shop for repair or maintenance. Guidance on meeting the agency's requirements can be found in FAA Advisory Circular 43-18, Fabrication of Aircraft Parts by Maintenance Personnel. If consulting AC43-18, be sure to get the latest version from www.faa.gov, since the agency has issued definition changes and updates since its initial publication a decade ago.

For some parts, the materials and skills necessary to use one of these three exemptions tend to be commonplace (sheet metal parts, in particular). For other parts, few shops possess the combination of the machinery, engineering knowledge and skill necessary to make a part under any of the three above exemptions. That's when dedicated PMA manufacturers most often offer alternatives to OEM suppliers, and sometimes the PMA part employs technologies that both meet the required standards and raise the gam e of that particular part beyond the part offered by the OEM - at which point the decision becomes less about cost and more about the long-term  advantages of a PMA replacement. www.AVBUYER.com

Case in Point…

Several decades ago, Dr. Giri Agrawal, founder of R&D Dynamics (http://rddynamics.com/), worked for two mainstream aerospace suppliers. As Chief Project Engineer for one, he received the highest technical award from the supplier’s corporate parent company for his work developing the supplier’s foil bearing designs. These are used in a wide variety of air cycle machines today. As the acknowledged inventor of foil and air gas bearing technology, Dr. Agrawal founded R&D Dynamics Corp. to further advance the use of foil bearing technology to rotating machines other than air cycle machines; the core mission of R&D Dynamics Corporation. R&D also supplies foil air/gas bearings to other industries, and performs maintenance under the name of Hartford Aero Maintenance, specializing in replacement and repair of components like those it produces for the aviation industry. Today R&D Dynamics is one of two main suppliers of the driving hardware in air-cycle machines used to pressurize large aircraft. R&D's parts go into OEM air-cycle machines as PMA parts replacements in air-cycle machines flying on thous ands of aircraft, many of them business jets. With its components used widely in aircraft environmental control systems, the parts are exposed to some of the most-extreme conditions in aviation, with the need to compress and cool air for pressurizing aircraft flying at high flight levels. Air that heats under compression must then be cooled to a temperature compatible with the occupants in the aircraft ca bin. “Our parts go through the same steps for approval as the OEMs,” Dr. Agrawal explained to AvBuyer. “We do the same deal as PMA manufacturers, as the OEMs. We go through all the same testing as the OEMs, and the same manufacturing quality assurance.” The assurance that a PMA producer meets the requisite standards for a part or system exists in the documentation submitted in the PMA application and in the Parts Manufacturing Approval the FAA issues when the applicant satisfies the requirements of the part or system. In Summary With the same rigorous standards and approvals process in place for both OEM and PMA parts, the operator’s decision when maintenance comes due goes beyond mere cost or convenience. Don’t expect all PMA parts to be less expensive than their equivalent OEM parts; especially when the PMA part offers a longer life as an alternative to a lower cost. Either way, with an OEM part or a PMA alternative, safety remains the priority - for the producers, for the people at FAA charged with reviewing and approving the PMA application, and for the end-user operating the jet with the replacement part.

How to Get the Best from Your Jet Maintenance

It’s Down to us to Exact the Quality Service We’ve Come to Expect… Previously, Aviation Director Andre Fodor discussed how our industry can improve the level of jet maintenance service to meet the expectations of corporate aviators and managers. This month he discusses the processes he’s honed on the job to get top maintenance service… orporate aviators and managers are people with acute and peculiar priorities. We’re hyper-focused on our airplanes and spend copious time making sure they are perfect and capable of delivering ultimate service and reliability. In short, corporate aviators and managers stand apart, setting the bar at the highest level and settling for nothing less. The first large cabin jet that I managed was a variant of an airliner. As I structured its operation,

I had the engines enrolled in the manufacturer’s ‘power-by-the-hour’ program for a very comprehensive and inclusive coverage. It can only be described as unfortunate that after a few months of use, one of those engines required removal for the repair and the replacement of the fuel metering unit. As we reviewed the paperwork prior to the reinstallation of the engine, we noticed that the “new” part had 18,000 hours of previous use and more than 24,000 cycles.

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

How Did That Happen?

It turned out that since our engine type was also used on airliners, the manufacturer saw fit to pick the replacement part from its rotating parts pool and deemed it ok to install this highly-used part on an engine installed on a very new multi-million dollar business jet. Most Business Aviation professionals reading this will undoubtedly consider such a solution unacceptable, yet the engine manufacturer failed to spot the problem. I could understand that both the airlines and we – the corporate operators – have common goals: that is to dispatch the aircraft reliably. Yet the commonality diverges quickly from there, owing to completely different standards. The airlines are emotionally detached from their aircraft while we, as corporate aviators, are not. It took a great deal of discussi on and some strong arm-twisting to remedy the problem with the Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

manufacturer, but in the end I got my original part re-installed after it was repaired.

“Yet the commonality diverges quickly from there, owing to completely different standards.”

Tips for Picking your Shop

The above experience highlights our discussion – that when choosing a maintenance provider you should not only focus on establishing a long-term relationship but also on establishing that relationship with people who understand the sensitivities of your operation and priorities. To achieve this, I have found that a close look at the leadership of the service organization is very helpful. Mandates for excellence within an MRO organization will radiate downward from the top. Without the full commitment of those in charge – with no gold standard to test itself against – the labor force becomes disenfranchised.

“Our due diligence paid off – we found an excellent match for the job.”

applied. Selection of the paint shop took effort on my part, and in making my final choice I took into account how effectively I could communicate with the project manager; how quickly I received my answers; and how organized the flow of information was presented. With such a big project ahead, I wanted to ensure that our selection not only had the technical expertise but the organizational skills to meet or exceed our expectation. To my surprise, from all of the serious contenders, no one proposed additional work to our aircraft. With a customer not shy of spending a quartermillion-dollars on a re-paint, wouldn’t you offer additional services that would not delay completion of the project (perhaps a re-stitch or a color dye of the seats)? Our due diligence paid off – we found an excellent match for the job. After my initial consultation with the team that would be working on our jet, I presented the paint rendition and asked, “What can we do to make this better?” To my delight, the seasoned group of painters

held nothing back as we spent hours tweaking and redesigning details that added value and expe rience to our design and excellence to the finished product.

In Summary…

There is nothing worse then a failure to heed valuable knowledge – and that also applies to the maintenance of your jet. Yet, tapping the knowledge of trusted experts does not release me from my responsibility of making final and complex decisions related to the upkeep of the jet within my flight department. Nevertheless, as I matured in my management skills, I developed a habit to trust people 100%, and then adjusting from there as appropriate. To help me attune that trust level, I insist on hearing insights that help me make the right choices. Perhaps you have your own methods that you’ve honed and developed to meet or exceed your jet maintenance expectations? If so, AvBuyer wants to hear from you. Pooled knowledge helps us all perform our duties within the flight department better… T

Dear Andre

Dear Joel

With reference to your article ‘Maintenance Delays and How to Avoid Them’, p78, December issue of AvBuyer, great job. I would add that hiring an experienced mechanic to solve those unwanted squawks can help reduce your overall labor cost as well. Coming from a recognized Service Center, I worked on many jets that came in with dozens of discrepancies that could literally be fixed in less than two hours, all combined. But, we had to justify the time being charged to the customer. Keeping a good mechanic on staff will reduce that cost incredibly.

One of the problems that I see nowadays, as we take the aircraft to a service center or maintenance facility, is the eagerness of some centers to start swapping [very expensive] parts instead of allowing experienced mechanics to use their experience and ability to troubleshoot the source problem and solve it at the root level. You are absolutely right in saying that having an experienced mechanic saves money and time; although it is possible to structure aircraft ownership that includes pre-paid all-inclusive maintenance by the OEM. As you grow in aircraft size and complexity, having an experienced and type-trained maintenance professional who oversees the airplane’s well-being is a sure investment towards its reliability and lower operational cost.

Keys to Improving Aviation Safety Management (Part 2) Defining Currency & Recency Targets of the Safety Manager

Last month we considered how many safety managers in Flight Departments have unrealized expertise potential. Following on, Mario Pierobon presents how organizations can establish the currency of their safety manager’s processes… n accordance with ICAO’s Safety Management Manual Document 9859, a safety manager is responsible for being the focal point in safety data collection and analysis. This duty may be accomplished through Reactive, Proactive and Predictive Methods, as outlined here…

I

Reactive Methods: Include the consultation of Mandatory Occurrence Reports (MORs), Incident Reports and Accident Reports to gather useful safety intelligence for the organization. Reactive Methods are normally available in the public domain and are easily accessible. What can be difficult, however, is to establish an ideal number of accident reports to be reviewed, interpreted and distributed among the organization each year by the safety manager. Each flight department should determine a target, based on their own specific requirements. Reactive Methods should make up the majority of the safety manager’s efforts to remain current at the early stages of Safety Management System (SMS) implementation within their Flight Department, and/or at the early stages of being a safety manager. Proactive Methods: Include administering safetyrelated surveys, accomplishing safety audits and managing voluntary reporting systems, in order to increase the organization’s foresight relating to safety. Once again, hard numbers are difficult to determine when aviation organizations must manage safety according to their specific requirements. However, organizations that have moved beyond early implementation might want to set more demands on the safety manager’s currency in their role by deriving useful statistics from consolidated voluntary reports, for example. Predictive Methods: Include Flight Data Analysis (FDA) or direct observations, such as Line Operations Safety Audits (LOSA), thus making the flight department better aware of potential safety hazards in a more quantitative data-driven fashion. The very best safety managers are using Predictive Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Methods in fulfilling their safety responsibilities. While not all business aircraft are required by law to perform FDAs, relatively inexpensive solutions like Quick Access Recorders (QARs) are available, enabling operators of smaller business aircraft to identify operational exceedance trends. Organizations that are at an advanced level of SMS implementation might want to include the accomplishment of more sophisticated quantitative data analysis exercises among the currency requirements of the safety manager, and enable training in that area, as appropriate.

Additional Safety Manager Criteria

Further currency criteria for the safety manager may include setting targets in monitoring and evaluating the results of corrective actions, ensuring that risk assessments are conducted, being involved with actual or practice emergency responses and developing/updating of the Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and procedures. Safety communication is a significant currency requirement of any safety management method, thereby ensuring that safety-related information (including organizational goals and objectives) is made available to all personnel through established communication processes, according to ICAO’s Safety Management Manual. It is simply not enough for safety managers to perform safety data collection and analysis if they don’t improve the knowledge of the organization. Communication is the key to learning. Thus, currency requirements might be determined by how many internal seminars the safety manager should run every year, how many safety briefs they should broadcast and how clearly the content of safety information is distributed. The mere establishment of currency and recency criteria for the safety manager does not directly improve safety performance. It requires the whole Flight Department to support the role of the safety manager. Next month, we’ll conclude this series with a look at how to put codified currency and recency criteria to use within the Flight Department, ensuring the SMS develops a critical mass. Stay tuned!

Private Jet Safety: Check & Verify

Business Aircraft Accidents Reveal Lapses in Checklist Use. From the start of flight training, through every rating upgrade and type-rating check ride, pilots hear their instructors drill them on the proper use of aircraft-appropriate checklists, notes Dave Higdon. So why the worrying trend for accidents caused by lapses in checklist use? s pilots advance, their checklists necessarily change. Those essential elements of aviation grow from a single plastic-laminated card into thick binders. As one might expect, the one-page checklist for a straight-forward, simple vintage single-engine piston aircraft covers fewer details about systems than the checklist for a more-complex multi-engine businessturbine aircraft. And then there's the Pilot Operating

A 60

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

Handbook, which goes into more details about systems, their design and function, and their emergency procedures. Regardless of aircraft type, size, speed and range, however, the purpose of these documents remains unwavering: To help pilots ascertain whether the aircraft is airworthy and ready to fly before the pilot starts the powerplant. Designated examiners grade pilots on their use of checklist s, and instructors who provide recurrent training follow the same practice monitoring both the use of and adherence to the documents. So it is somewhat inexplicable to read several of the NTSB’s accident reports of recent years. Specifically, reports have pointed to the flight crews’ failure to properly employ the aircraft checklists as an element in the accident’s probable cause. In some cases the checkl ist was partially used or misused; in others, investigators found no signs to

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft Index see Page 137


Safety Jan17.qxp_Finance 20/12/2016 09:50 Page 2

confirm the flight crew used the checklist at all, thanks to Cockpit Voice Recordings (CVR) being completely void of the voices of the flight crew running through the document. If ever an example of a human-factors failure exists in aviation safety, these reports confirm them.

2014’s Hanscom Field GIV accident

The failure to fully follow check-list guidance emerged full-blown when the NTSB issued its report on the runway overrun crash of a Gulfstream GIV at Laurence G. Hanscom Field (KBED) in Bedford, Massachusetts. All seven souls aboard the twin jet perished. The board’s investigation discovered that the crew habitually neglected the pre-takeoff checklist; they also failed to use the operating company's proscribed “challenge-response” system in which one crew member calls out items verbally and the other crew member verbally responds to confirm the action on that item. As with many bad habits that humans develop, this systematic failure led the crew to their demise – along with the other five persons on board—after the crew attempted to take off with the gust lock engaged. The jet overran the runway end, crashed Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

and burned without leaving the ground – all because of a failure to confirm free-and-full cont rol motion as proscribed in every aircraft checklist. In the probable cause report released in early September of 2015, the NTSB asked NBAA to study flight-crew compliance with checklist procedures. NBAA agreed to take up the task, analyzing existing data to check for compliance with manufacturerrequired routine flight-control checks before takeoff, and providing the results of this analysis to its membe rs. The process helped highlight the entire issue of checklist use, and NBAA’s report provided some sobering information. The NTSB’s recommendations also included a request that the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) establish standards for verifying operators’ use of checklists, including adopting a challenge-verification-response format whenever possible. In addition, the NTSB asked the FAA t o require that the gust lock system on all existing GIV airplanes be retrofitted to ensure that the gust lock physically limits the operation of the airplane’s throttles to the 6 degrees specified in the certification standards. Research into other GIV gust locks revealed that throttles moved between 18 and 23 degrees with the locks engaged – almost four times the standard. The NTSB wants the change to en sure that flight crews receive an unmistakable warning at the start of take-off if the gust lock is engaged through the throttle-movement restriction so the locked controls are apparent even if a flight crew fails to check for free and full-range movement of the other flight controls.

The Results Are In, and Disturbing...

On September 20, 2016, NBAA published its report, titled ‘Business Aviation Compliance with Manufacturer-Required Flight Control Checks Before Takeoff’. It analyzed 143,756 Business Aviation flights made between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2015 and found that on average 15% of those flights began with only a partial flight control check and 2% began without a full, valid check. The report defined a valid flight check as the stopto-stop deflection of all flight controls specified by an www.AVBUYER.com

OEM’s aircraft flight manual (the check overlooked in the Hanscom Field accident). More disturbing, the report also found failures to follow pre- and postflight checklist items in areas other than control movement, adding urgency to the entire issue. In the Executive Summary of the association’s report, NBAA President & CEO Ed Bolen said, “As perplexing as it is that a highly experienced crew could attempt a takeoff with the gust lock engaged, the data also reveal similar challenges across a variety of aircraft and operators. This report should further raise awareness within the Business Aviation co mmunity that complacency and lack of procedural discipline have no place in our profession.” Among the recommendations NBAA made was that operators establish flight-data monitoring programs (something a mere 1% of operators currently do), and for operators to participate in a formal data-sharing program similar to an existing, successful government-industry program known as the Aviation Safety Information Analysis & Sharing System (ASIAS). ASIAS focuses on the root causes of accidents in order to prevent their recurrence. The NBAA study also urged OEMs to provide clearer requirements for pre-departure flight-control checks. But with such a diverse group of operators as exists in Business Aviation, some of these recommendations will take more effort and oversight than normally found in many flight departmen ts.

The Checklist Conundrum: Which List?

Pilots who undergo recurrent or new-type training at professional training companies may find that the checklist used in the training environment differs from the one in the aircraft itself. OEMs produce checklists and manuals for their aircraft. Part 91 operators are, however, free to modify or create their own versions tailored to their operation – without FAA oversight. Conversely, training organizations use checklists tailored to their simulators, based on the factory document. And commercial operators and fractionals can get approval from the FAA to modify the OEM’s checklist to fit their particular operation. The variation that results can be a source of confusion and mistakes. The closest thing to a viable solution is diligent adherence to the document 62

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

approve d for, and used in the aircraft. For aircraft flown by a two-pilot crew, the challenge-response method can provide consistency and assurance that all the points have been dealt with – per the document used in that aircraft. Instructors for professional flight training companies suggest that alternating the roles of crew members also helps avoid complacency while increasing the odds that all the items will be a ddressed in the correct order. They stress that the discovery of any aberration or item that doesn't align with the checklist should be considered a cause to return to the ramp – assuming the aircraft has already taxied off the ramp. Finally, as more aircraft boast digital panels capable of displaying the aircraft check list, it's incumbent on the operator and the crew to ensure that electronic and paper chec k lists match – exactly. Otherwise, how is the crew to know which list to follow? A mistake here could produce grave consequences.

Single-Pilot Operations: The Weakest Link?

“... the data also reveal similar challenges across a variety of aircraft and operators.” - Ed Bolen, President & CEO, NBAA

www.AVBUYER.com

The focus on checklist use becomes more acute outside the realm of two-pilot operations. Who is to provide the challenge in a single-pilot operation? That sole pilot can provide an internal check, several flight instructors suggest, by repeating the check list from the end back to the top. “It requires patience, it requires focus, and it shouldn't be combined with other tasks,” said one instructor. “The repetition can become monotonous, particularly for the single-pilot operator who flies frequently. It’s easy to begin to think you’ve got it all committed to memory, but that’s exactly when failing to follow the document page-by-page can bite you on the empennage. Any interruption of the process should take the pilot back to the top to start again.” Interestingly, the majority of accidents reviewed in which failed, partial or total lack of checklist use factored into the event befell aircraft flown by two-pilot crews. But since most aircraft flown by a single pilot lack a CVR, it’s difficult to know whether some accidents and incidents resulted from the single pilot’s failure to adhere to the checklist. Hence the recommendation to run through the list twice – top to bottom, then bottom to top. It’s better to be a few minutes late than a late pilot... T Aircraft Index see Page 137

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

T

he average Large Cabin and Ultra-Long-Range jets share more in common than they differ, with similar cabin sizes and comparable cruise speeds ranging roughly between 450-500kts. For the purpose of this month’s focus, we’ll categorise Large Cabin and Ultra-Long-Range jets under the generic category of ‘Large Cabin jets’, on the basis of their shared characteristics, and MTOWs that generally range between 38,000-100,000 pounds. Large Cabin jets have much in their favor. Seats-full range capabilities typically go up to, and into the 6,000nm range, making these effective non-stop continent and ocean-crossing machines. The fewer the stops, the shorter the overall trip time! One disadvantage the Large Cabin jets have over their Small and Medium jet kin is their need for runways longer than 6,000ft, which restricts the number of airports they can use by comparison. Nevertheless, for the trans-oceanic traveller, the advantages offered by these airplanes far outweigh the negatives. Where the Large Cabin airplanes really excel (as the name would suggest) is in their cabin capacities. A cabin will typically stretch from 30-40 feet or more, enabling operators to enjoy a wider array of finishing options and office capabilities than jets in the smaller segments can provide. Cabin heights in excess of six feet guarantees stand-up cabin comfort, while seating capacity of 8-18 is typical. 68

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

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

Large Cabin Jet Price Guide

The following Large Cabin jets’ Average Retail Price Guide represents current values published in the Aircraft Bluebook– Price Digest. The study spans model years from 1997 through Winter 2016. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Dassault Falcon 900LX values reported in the Winter 2016 edition of the Bluebook show $27.0m for a 2013 model, $25.0m for a 2012 model and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. With the reader’s knowledge of aircraft, equipment, range and performance, the following Guide allows t he reader to determine the best value aircraft for consideration.

Aircraft Performance & Specifications

Ultra Long Range & Large Cabin 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 - Ultra Long Range & Large Cabin Jets – appears overleaf, to be followed by Medium Jets next month. Please note that this data should be used as a guide only, and not as the basis on which buying decisions are taken. The data presents aircraft aged below 20 years of age only, but Conklin & de Decker provides details of older airplanes too. If there are any other ways in which we can improve the content or presentation of this information, please let us know.

Description of Cost Elements The following describes the content of each cost element used in The Aircraft Cost Evaluator. There are no sales taxes included in these costs. VARIABLE COST PER HOUR Includes fuel, maintenance reserves for routine maintenance, engine/ propeller/APU reserves, and miscellaneous expenses. Specifications - General CABIN DIMENSIONS Cabin Height, Width, and Length are based on a completed interior. On “cabin-class” aircraft, the length is measured from the cockpit divider to the aft pressure bulkhead (or aft cabin bulkhead if unpressurized). For small cabin aircraft, the distance is from the cockpit firewall to the aft bulkhead. Height and width are the maximum within that Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

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. January 2017 – AVBUYER MAGAZINE

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T AIRCRAFT COMPARATIVE

Aircraft Comparative Analysis Cessna Citation Excel vs Bombardier Learjet 40 In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on a pair of used Light Jets Mike Chase’s analytical and consultancy services are highly valued within the Business Aviation industry. He is founder and president of Chase & Associates, and works closely with several respected sources to compile his unique Aircraft Comparative Analysis feature. Contact Mike via mike@avbuyer.com

for the purpose of valuing the Cessna Citation Excel.

O

ver the following paragraphs, we’ll analyse the performance of the Cessna Citation Excel and Bombardier Learjet 40 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. The Citation Excel is a growth/derivative of the Citation V Ultra, offering a shortened Citation X standup cabin and a lengthened Citation V wing, and was

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

www.AVBUYER.com

produced between 1998 and 2004. The PW545A engines make the Citation Excel faster than the V Ultra, and give it a higher MGTOW and a longer range. The avionics suite includes a Honeywell Primus 1000 flight guidance system and a single AlliedSignal flight management system. There are 312 wholly-owned Citation Excels, 40 that are fractionally-owned and 17 under shared-ow nership, making a total fleet of 369 in operation worldwide. Thirty-five units, or 9.5% of the Citation Excel fleet is Aircraft Index see Page 137

As we have mentioned previously, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Citation Excel ‘Available payload with Maximum Fuel’ (960 lbs) is significantly less than that offered by the Learjet 40 (1,507 lbs). Table A also shows the fuel usage b y each aircraft (sourced from Aircraft Cost Calculator). There is a difference of 39 gallons per hour (21%) between the fuel usage of the Citation Excel at 225 GPH and the more frugal Learjet 40 at 186 GPH.

Cabin Cross-Sections

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Citation Excel cabin volume is 422 cubic feet, with 18.5 ft. cabin length. The Learjet 40 has less cabin volume (369 cu. ft.) and shorter cabin length at 17.67 ft. Chart A (middle left), courtesy of UPCAST JETBOOK, offers a cabin cross-section comparison and shows the Citation Excel has greater width (5.5 ft. vs 5.12 ft.) and greater height (5.7 ft. vs 4.92 ft.) than the Learjet 40.

Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a sixyear recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table D (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2004-model Citation Excel business jet in p rivate (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five- and seven-year periods, assuming a used retail price of $3.4m, per Vref Pricing guide.

The current used jet market for the Citation Excel shows a total of 20 aircraft ‘For Sale’ with six displaying an asking price ranging from $1.5 million to $3.7 million. We also reviewed the used Learjet 40, which display asking prices ranging from $1.55m to $3.5m. While each serial number is unique, the Airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variations in price. Of course, the final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

maximum payload values are from Conklin & de Decker and Aircraft Cost Calculator, while the number of aircraft inoperation and percentage ‘For Sale’ are as reported by JETNET. The Citation Excel has 6% of its fleet currently ‘For Sale’ and the Learjet 40 is at 18.4% ‘For Sale’. The average number of pre-owned transactions (sold) per month for the Citation Excel is more at five units per month compared to the Learjet 40 at one.

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 certai n 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 fa ctors 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.

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

Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the Citation Excel displays a high level of productivity. The Citation Excel shows higher retail price, but greater productivity compared to the Learjet 40. The Learjet 40 has a very large operating cost advantage, higher cruise speed and higher payload with full fuel capability, but the Citation Excel offers a substantially larger cabin with Mid-Size Jet cross-section. The used Citation Excel jet shows good monthly full retail sale transactions averaging five units per month, and is still a very popular mode l within the fractional ownership sector. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking which option is the best for them.

High-Flyers’ Interview How the Phenom Provides Concrete Help to One Construction Company

Rani Singh discusses with the owner of Head, Inc. how his Phenom 300 opens up a new world of business opportunities and increased

responsiveness over what the non-BizAv-flying competition could achieve…

im Head, Owner of Columbus, Ohio-based construction company Head, Inc., seldom flies to sites closer than 700 miles away, yet the places he visits are hard to reach flying commercially. For that reasons, and a whole host of others, Head’s Embraer Phenom 300 is indispensable. Jim is a qualified pilot who has amassed 11,000 hours since he first began flying 30 years ago, and so far he’s clocked up 225 hours in his Phenom. “I can’t speak too highly of the aircraft,” he extols.

Over the years he’s scaled up from a Cessna 421 and 441, but the longer range and efficiency of the Phenom 300 appeals to him. “There are only a few airplanes [within this category] that meet these criteria,” he explains. Founded in 1927 as the George W. Timmons Company, Jim Head’s group has always been a family owned business based in Ohio. In the 1960s the Head family took over proprietorship of the firm, and Middleton E. (Ed) Head, Jr. was joined in ownership by his son James M. (Jim) Head in 1972, Aircraft Index see Page 137

Since its inception, Head Inc. has been involved in public works projects; specifically, concrete paving on airfields.

highlights. “We can fuel up and go to any of our jobs quickly, and that’s quite a comfort. It means I am able to have access to my jobs at any time.” One of the advantages of Business Aviation over Scheduled Airlines is the coverage it gives its users. “We’re not a very large contractor. Most contractors our size don’t work such a big range,” Jim observes. “We work as far as 1,400 miles away from Ohio. To fly to a project commercially, he adds, would take all day. “Most of my jobs are in remote places.”

Increased Responsiveness

Jim highlights how the Phenom 300 helps his busy executives whose time is most valuable. “We recently had an issue requiring my immediate attention in Abeline, Texas. At a moment’s notice I prepared the airplane, took a couple of key people with me, headed down to the job site and got involved in solving the problem.” He got the initial call at 8am in the morning and was on the job site by 1pm. “That type of occurrence happens quite often.” The issue he was called to address was remedied within 24 hours. “Quite often I can do it in the space of one day. I’ll get up early in the morning, fly at first light and be back by dark. Without the Phenom, I would waste a whole day just getting there, assuming the tickets are available.” 90

Every Situation Different

“ Without the Phenom, I would waste a whole day just getting there, assuming the tickets are available.”

Each situation in which he uses the Phenom 300 is different, Jim notes. “I remember a time when we had an emergency. One of our concrete mixers was down. I literally threw a part in the airplane and was there in three hours. I got the machine up and running that same day. That was unique as I don’t normally run parts.” Naturally, the jet is used for a lot of meetings, and once in a while it’s used to move sick people around. “I’ve had one of my employees fall ill in the past. I needed to pick him up and bring him back home. “That’s actually happened a couple of times… One of the things about the Phenom is that it’s cabin differential pressure of 9.2 psi makes it very comfortable, even at 45,000 ft, where the cabin altitude is only 6,600 ft, so if people are unwell I fly at 30,000 ft, and it’s like barely being above the ground. It happened as recently as a few months ago; when people are ill, flying Scheduled Airlines is never fun.” Head, Inc. presents the picture of a versatile business tool enabling a construction company to be more responsive and extending the firm’s reach well beyond the area where it could otherwise operate. Both the company’s owner and employees benefit. There’s little wonder Jim Head is delighted with his Embraer Phenom 300 business aircraft. T Aircraft Index see Page 137

ollowing are two critical dates that will impact the usability of all business aircraft.

January 1, 2020 for operations over much of the business airspace in the US. December 7, 2017 for operations across the North Atlantic.

Given the close proximity of both upgrade deadlines, it’s alarming that a recent estimate had over 14,000 aircraft still needing to upgrade. Let’s take a look at the background behind these requirements... Save for GPS, the air traffic control (ATC) and navigation system here in the US is predominantly based on 1940s agreements and is still using 1960s technology. The FAA has long advocated advancement toward what it refers to as NextGen -

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2017

www.AVBUYER.com

the next generation of ATC and navigation. Upgrading these legacy systems is a slow and costly process. On the ground, this is far more complicated than getting new computers and updating software. It’s probably more complex than swapping SAP/Oracle systems for cloud computing. The FAA has promoted several different options and plans. The agreed program for modernization requires some significant changes in the navigation and communication equipment on our aircraft, and today that is where the issues arise.

Understanding ADS-B

A fundamental requirement for this modernization involves how aircraft transmit their location and movement to ground-based ATC. The equipment that enables aircraft to meet that fundamental requirement is called ADS-B. Aircraft Index see Page 137


Ownership Jan17.qxp_Layout 1 19/12/2016 14:49 Page 2

ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) allows air traffic controllers to see traffic with more precision than currently available with today’s radar systems by using highly accurate GPS signals. Here in the US you’ll need to be equipped with ADS-B “Out” by January 1, 2020. While there are a few exceptions, such as balloons and gliders that do not have electrical systems, all aircraft typically used for business must be ADS-B (Out) equipped.

Understanding FANS

Outside the US, there are other navigation requirements that will also enhance the accuracy for ATC to have a more precise location, speed and direction of aircraft. Much of this airspace is well away from ground-based radar (such as the busy North Atlantic air routes). These mandated improvements require digital communications and datalink capabilities. As these capabilities are used far from land-based ATC, they require satellite-based communication, and they are classified as part of what is referred to as Future Air Navigation System (FANS). If you operate a jet over the North Atlantic, you will need to have new equipment installed on your aircraft by December 7, 2017 if you want to fly the most fuel efficient routes and attitudes.

Where Do the Problems Lie?

Since FANS developed over many decades, what is the problem with implementation? To start with, development of the standards and specifications took time and involved many delays. The ‘final deadline’ was advanced several times, and avionics manufacturers could not develop new equipment until the specifications were complete. Meantime, maintenance facilities capable of performing these upgrades have a limited capacity, and they may have difficulty hiring new staff for these one-time deadlines. The upgrades can take weeks or even months to accomplish, and shop schedules are filling up. Getting the required equipment can involve order backlogs, and not all the equipment needed is available at this time for all aircraft types. Avionics manufacturers have started with the newer systems first. Third party avionics providers have searched for their opportunities based on underserved aircraft types, but all the aircraft have not been covered. Furthermore, costs vary. Newer aircraft with the current generation avionics require the equivalent of a software or firmware update. Many such changes have been done or can be done easily. Much older aircraft models lacking integrated avionic systems may only need a single piece of equipment, the transponder, replaced. In between there are many aircraft with first or second generation integrated digital (‘glass cockpit’) systems that require significant equipment Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

changes that can run to hundreds of thousands of dollars and take considerable time to accomplish. As the deadlines approach, the costs to do the work are likely to rise.

What if I Delay?

Not performing the upgrades will result in aircraft that are almost unusable. Selling these aircraft without the upgrades will be difficult and their values greatly reduced. For some models, the cost of the upgrade relative to the aircraft value is very high. The monies spent on the upgrade will not result in a 100% return, but they are required in order to get full use of the aircraft. If your aircraft has been updated or is scheduled for upgrading, then you are all set. However, if your aircraft is waiting on the equipment or is not yet scheduled for modification, you may be facing a difficult decision. The ADS-B mandate of 2020 is not far away. If you operate across the Atlantic, time has almost run out. Less than a year is left to make the modifications. These issues are not new, but time is running out to make plans.

Why an On-Site Jet Appraisal Is so Important The Certified Appraisal versus a Desktop Valuation There are real dangers in cutting corners on an aircraft appraisal.

here are multiple reasons why an aircraft owner might need to know what his aircraft is worth on a specific date, including: Making the decision to sell; wishing to put the aircraft up as collateral against a loan; divorce settlement; an estate sale; tax settlement; insurance claim; or charitable donation. Except for the situation of making a ‘sales decision’, all the other events listed require that the selected appraiser provide the owner with a certified appraisal instead of merely a market valuation.

“The weight given an appraisal depends on the completeness of the report, the qualifications of the appraiser, and the appraiser’s demonstrated knowledge of the donated property. An appraisal must give all the facts on which to base an intelligent judgement of the value of the property. “The appraisal will not be given much weight if:

The Essence of a Certified Appraisal

“The appraiser’s opinion is never more valid than the facts on which it is based; without these facts, it is simply a guess. “The opinion of a person claiming to be an expert is not binding on the Internal Revenue Service.” 

To prove ‘demonstrated knowledge’ of the aircraft that is the subject of the appraisal, the appraiser must physically see and evaluate the aircraft and all its logbooks, on-site and in person. In the unfortunate instance where the subject aircraft will be written-off by an insurance company due to the total-loss of the aircraft, it is still required that all logbooks are reviewed before an appraisal report can be written. The National Aircraft Appraisers Association (NAAA) asserts that “The walk around examination, and inventory of the aircraft, followed by the thorough study of the logbooks, and records, contribute approximately 85-90% of the data in our written report. The other 10-15% of our work is outside research.” A sales specification that has updated hours, landings and equipment hand scrawled on it, along with a handful of images, does not come close to being a suitable substitute for an on-site inspection. It is impossible to apply a rating to the condition of the paint and interior by only examining an onscreen, or printed image, in-place of seeing the actual aircraft in person.

I also downloaded a CAMP Status Report after being granted ‘read-only’ access through my CAMP-Online account. If I had utilized this supplied specification and CAMP Report instead of creating my own, I would have been very wrong on multiple equipment and inspection status issues. For example, Collins TDR-94 Transponders had reportedly been installed, when in reality Honeywell MST-67 Transponders were the actual units onboard (installed over 10 years before). Furthermore, the ‘C Check’ date reported was later than the actual sign-off and release for return to service (another potentially very costly error). And while doing the audit, I even found two engine logbooks among the archives that did not belong to the subject aircraft…and never did at any time in its history... This was not an isolated incident. Other examples over the years have included:

Why Have an Inspection?

Rarely will a sales specification ever mention the existence of any damage history, or accurately assess current maintenance and inspection status. The only sure way to determine the overall condition of an aircraft, and ultimately its value, is by inspection. The logbooks are a critical part of the determination process. An excellent example of why an on-site inspection and log book audit is so vital to accurately report on an aircraft happened in an audit of a Dassault Falcon 900B I was involved with recently. The Falcon 900B was in the late stages of a work scope at a major MRO, and I was provided with a sales specification that was produced by an aircraft broker who had sold this aircraft a little over a year before the date of my audit.

The bottom-line: if the certified appraisal that you paid for and used to satisfy an official requirement was created without an on-site inspection and audit by an appraiser, even with disclaimers, it is questionable and probably unreliable.

Used Jet Buyer Opportunity amid Uncertainty Is 2017 a Better Time to Buy a Business Jet? There is little consensus on what steps Donald Trump will take first as US President. His candidacy included central themes encompassing lower corporate tax rates and renegotiation of some major trade deals. American Aircraft Sales president Jet Tolbert reflects on possible opportunities for buyers of pre-owned jets in 2017... ower corporate tax rates would have wide-ranging benefits within the US. We could expect corporations to have more money available for expansion, debt reduction, infrastructure and capital. Business Aviation flight departments are already beginning to think ahead. Yet there are questions to be answered. For example, will Trump’s anticipated ‘protectionism’ lead to freer, lower-cost cross-border transactions, or will they have an adverse impact on International trade? Will countries like Brazil, which

has traditionally been discouraging of US Business Aviation imports, see a mutual advantage in lowering their up-to-28% import taxes, in order to move more Embraer jets stateside? Lenders, generally, are awash with cash but their lending standards are higher now than a decade ago. Will Trump’s tax and tariff policies make more firms and HNWIs eligible to finance purchases at more attractive rates? And will Trump be able to convince the EU nations that their (minimum) VAT on US imports is a bad idea? If taxes and import-export rules do change, they

Russia, Russian owners sought to liquidate assets as the Russian ruble fell. Could we see similar outflow from Mexico? Many of Mexico’s newer, financed Light and Mid-Size jets are internationally registered. But they are overwhelmingly maintained at US factory service centers. Trump is sufficiently sophisticated to know that the US business jet landscape is built around OEMs with strong International roots. Cessna and Gulfstream have engines and parts imported from around the globe. Learjet is part of Bombardier (Canadian). Boeings are made all over the world, while Brazil’s Embraer Phenoms and Legacy 450/500 are assembled in Florida.

He has been working in the industry since joining the family business at the age of 17, and is also an instrumentrated pilot.

certainly won’t be happening overnight. What can happen overnight is a change in interest rates, however, and currency realignments as have occurred in Brazil, Russia and China. Perhaps the tariff policies will not materialize and overseas companies won't be impacted, but one would expect to see changes to foreign policy with some impact on international companies that, in turn, will be overleveraged and forced to liquidate some of their newer aircraft still being financed. Many flight departments have been holding on to their business jets for longer periods of time on average (compared to pre-recession averages) or have reduced the size of their fleets. Now if billions of dollars were to flow back into US corporations, it could spark a buying spree, which could generate price increases in used jets ‘For Sale’. As we embark on a New Year, and with a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) high on the incoming US President’s agenda, Mexico in particular could be the source of some great deals on Light to MidSize jets. When sanctions were imposed against Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

So, what’s my point from all of the above? If you find the aircraft you need, and you can arrange financing, don’t wait too far into this New Year – step into the market now. We recently watched lending rates rise from 3.169% to 3.969% as we negotiated the delivery of one used jet! When you’re dealing with years of financing and millions of dollars, timing is paramount. Wasted time can kill a deal. When the Chinese market realignment caught everyone by surprise last summer, we watched a ‘done deal’ evaporate. Escrow was lost; business relationships were soured; flight departments scrambled; and inconvenience rained down on everyone on both sides of the deal. It was nobody’s fault, but a day or two quicker would have bought a successful deal for everybody. As of the beginning of 2017, we’re faced with the choice to follow our plans through or delay them. The Dow Jones stock index has reached new highs since the election. There are smiles on longsuffering faces. Money is available at near-record low rates. In the used jet market inventories are sufficient in every segment of the market. Will interest rates rise? If they do, will that dampen this new enthusiasm? Will the dollar continue to strengthen – and if so, will it matter? One economist will say ‘no’, while another will say ‘yes’. This is a New Year – and used jet prices are probably as good as you’ll see. This is a great time to act. T More information from www.americanaircraftsales.com www.AVBUYER.com

Importing Used Business Aircraft (Part 3 of 3)

How to Deal with Commonly Encountered Issues. Attorneys Keith Swirsky and Chris Younger conclude their analysis of challenges facing companies and individuals desiring to import business aircraft registered outside the US. urchasers of aircraft imported from outside the US for the purpose of entering ondemand service for hire must consider whether the aircraft has been maintained and its records documented in such a manner as to permit it to be placed on a Part 135 certificate. If the buyer desires to allow the aircraft to be operated in Part 135 charter post-closing, the buyer needs to involve the Part 135 certificate holder’s Director of Maintenance in the acquisition process during the pre-purchase inspection, to determine that there are no equipment issues or deficiencies in the aircraft’s records preventing it from being placed on the certificate holder’s Part 135 certificate. Several other issues may arise in the course of negotiating the purchase agreement. For example, foreign sellers customarily require that buyers insure the seller for a two or three year period post-closing. In other words, the seller requires the buyer to

place the seller on the buyer’s insurance policy, as an additional insured, to cover the potential that the buyer’s operations post-closing could lead to litigation that names the seller as a defendant. In addition, the amount of coverage may be relevant. In our experience, foreign sellers often want more coverage than US buyers customarily place on their aircraft. If the delivery location is outside the United States, the purchasing company must engage foreign advisors to address legal and tax issues relating to delivery in the foreign location. Additionally, the choice of governing law under the purchase agreement is contentious. Also, all parties to the transaction must agree upon which country’s courts will have jurisdiction to hear a case in the event of a dispute, or whether an arbitration clause will require arbitration in a distant foreign location. Naturally, each party will want the laws of their own country to apply, and each party Aircraft Index see Page 137

will want the convenience of local courts in the event of a dispute. There is no easy resolution to this issue.

Still More

Finally, we have occasionally seen currency fluctuation issues affect a pending transaction. In particular, if the transaction is denominated in US Dollars, and the US Dollar weakens relative to the foreign currency, the foreign seller will be yielding a lower purchase price for the aircraft. This situation provides an incentive for the seller to default and refuse to deliver title to the aircraft. As it is most common that a seller’s default will only cause the seller to be liable to reimburse the buyer for its out-of-pocket expenses, the seller may be financially compelled to default on a contract. However, if the transaction is denominated in US Dollars and the US Dollar strengthens against the foreign currency, there will be no added cost to the buyer. Nevertheless, a sophisticated buyer will realize that the seller is yielding a higher purchase price

than anticipated, and might desire to ‘negotiate’ the deal further prior to closing. Other variations on this theme are clearly possible.

In Summary

This three-part series on importing used business aircraft has addressed some of the issues that may arise. Certainly there are other issues not addressed, and as the used aircraft import (and export) market continues to mature, custom and usage between and among the US and other countries will converge. Until such time, however, US buyers will experience these and other difficulties in negotiating a purchase agreement, and coordinating the logistics of inspection and closing. The company will need knowledgeable advisors who are experienced in the field of international transactions, thereby increasing the likelihood of a successful foreign-based aircraft acquisition.

Annual Roundtable

Celebrations begin with the invitation-only 8th Annual Roundtable assembly on January 26 at the Casemates, part of Vienna’s underground fortification system dating back to the 16th century, at the infamous Palais Coburg Hotel. As the industry’s only private gathering of its kind in Europe, the Vienna Roundtable attracts guests from the global Business Aviation community. Approximately 230 BizAv executives, www.AVBUYER.com

including more than 45 different operators, all OEM’s and a significant number of owner representatives have attended the networking event each year of late, and in this anniversary year, the company expects another record-breaking attendance. “The Vienna Roundtable offers industry members an excellent opportunity to casually meet, exchange ideas and discuss business,” explains Mr. Smith.

Where it All Began…

Jet Aviation’s story is one of foresight and vision. In 1967, Carl W. Hirschmann recognized that Business Aviation was coming to Europe, and when Basel-based charter company Globair filed for bankruptcy in 1967, he wasted no time in taking the opportunity to rent the hangar Globair had vacated. Hiring Elie Zelouf, Globair’s deputy technical director, Hirschmann founded Jet Aviation as a maintenance services company on November 27, 1967. Within two years, Jet Aviation had used its Swiss-connections to utilize ground Aircraft Index see Page 137

handling and maintenance services from Pilatus AG in Zurich and Geneva, and began providing additional services to business jet owners and operators, as well as to charter airlines, government and military aircraft. The 1975 acquisition of a maintenance base in Dusseldorf, Germany represented the company first foray outside of Switzerland. Yet those early years had their challenges, including facing resistance from the aircraft OEMs and other competition, making it difficult to obtain the necessary parts and tools. But then Jet Aviation did something completely unprecedented, never looking back… In 1977, the company surprised many within Business Aviation when it purchased an old Cathay Pacific Convair 880, outfitting it with a luxury interior, and displaying it at the 1977 Paris Air Show to launch into the completions business.

Going Global

As the 1980s approached, Jet Aviation became the first Business Aviation services company to set up an FBO with local partners in Saudi Arabia, opening a ground handling/maintenance services facility for the private aviation industry in Jeddah. Two years later, a second FBO was opened in Riyadh, setting the tone for the coming decades. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Jet Aviation continued to expand in Europe and the Middle East, while also successfully moving into the US and Asian markets. Jet Aviation’s US venture began in 1982 with an office in Washington, D.C., and then FBOs in Boston and West Palm Beach. Teterboro-based Aero Service FBO and Executive Air Fleet, the largest aircraft management and charter company in the US was acquired in 1988, and in 1996, K-C Aviation’s aircraft management and charter services were purchased, increasing the company’s charter capacity by nearly 50%, along with Jet Professionals enabling Jet Aviation to move into staffing solutions. As the use of business jets began to

increase in Asia in the 1990s, Jet Aviation was ready and poised, purchasing DHP Aviation at Seletar airport (Singapore) in 1995, to offer MRO and FBO services in the region. And by 2001 an aircraft management and charter office was opened in Hong Kong, which today operates a fleet of more than 30 aircraft.

Beechcraft is offering Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67A engines for improved performance on its King Air 350HW and King Air 350ER turboprops along with an increased gross weight option for these platforms that enables MTOW to be 17,500 lbs. Both enhancements are now FAA and EASA certified. The more powerful engines provide superior field and climb performance, including hot and high operations. www.txtav.com BEECHCRAFT

Company Acquisition

Jet Aviation was acquired by a private equity specialist in October 2005, which purchased US-based Midcoast Aviation the following year, further strengthening the company’s position as a full Business Aviation service provider in the US. Within two years, the company established its wide-body completions hangar in Basel and opened maintenance facilities in Moscow and Hong Kong. Then on November 5, 2008, Jet Aviation was sold to General Dynamics, beginning a new era for the company under American leadership. With the acquisition coinciding with the Great Recession, although the pace of growth of the company’s network slowed temporarily, the focus turned toward improving efficiencies. Since the start of this decade, the FBO in Jeddah moved to its new facility and the company opened an aircraft management and charter office in Van Nuys. An FBO facility has opened in Houston and corporate headquarters have moved from Zurich to Basel. Jet Aviation has returned to its steady rate of growth, substantially extending its global FBO network, building up its entire US West Coast operations, and expanding its MRO network - including significant investments in Asia. As it looks to the next 50 years, there is much to be excited about at Jet Aviation. More from www.jetaviation.com

PRODUCTS & SERVICES Updated NBAA Charter Guide

Jet Aviation Dubai joins ACJ service centre network

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has released a new edition of its Aircraft Charter Consumer Guide, with additional information to help consumers make better-informed decisions when selecting a charter operator. The revised publication focuses on topics including illegal charter through certain dry-lease arrangements and chartering through Crowd Sourcing.

Jet Aviation’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in Dubai are to join the ACJ Service Centre network, adding to the choice of Airbusapproved facilities around the world for ACJ customers and operators. Its Basle facilities became part of the ACJ Service Centre Network earlier this year.

The guide also provides procedures developed by NBAA’s Part 135 Subcommittee for identifying credible charter operators, and tips for selecting the best charter operator to meet a customer’s on-demand travel needs. “The Aircraft Charter Consumer Guide is one of NBAA’s most popular member publications,” said Brian Koester, NBAA’s manager of operations. “We updated this guide to help prevent customers from falling victim to scam charter arrangements, and to provide guidance regarding Crowd Sourcing, which is growing in popularity as a lower-cost option for charter customers.” While dry-lease arrangements can be legally drafted and executed, some Part 91 operators attempt to evade Part 135 commercial operator regulatory oversight by providing a sham dry lease to customers. Dry leasing results in the customer holding operational control over the aircraft and incurring all liabilities in regards to that customer’s operations. The sham dry-lease scenario is typically conducted without proper authorizations from the FAA, including, for example, letters of authorization for RVSM in the customer’s name as the operator. To further complicate matters, some Part 91 operators participating in this illegal activity dry lease a single aircraft to multiple parties. “Customers should be wary of dry-lease arrangements offered in lieu of a charter flight, particularly on short notice,” said Koester. “Legally executed dry-lease agreements take some time to draft and coordinate and should be reviewed by legal counsel familiar with aircraft dry leases.” The updated guide also offers new guidance regarding Crowd Sourcing of charter flights through the internet and mobile applications. Through Crowd Sourcing, charter brokers and operators can match potential customers with other consumers who are willing to share available seats on a charter flight. Especially when using mobile applications, NBAA recommends asking the charter broker or operator if the flight will be shared or wholly chartered by one customer. The guide includes a list of suggested pre-screening questions to use when vetting a potential charter operator or considering a legal dry lease, as well as a form to request proposals for specific air charter flights. The request for proposals form includes several questions regarding safety, logistics and pricing for the charter broker or operator to answer as part of the vetting process. www.nbaa.org

The ACJ Service Centre AIRBUS SIGNING network now comprises Comlux Benoit Defforge, President ACJ (L) America in Indianapolis, HAECO Robert Smith, President Jet Aviation (R) Private Jet Solutions in Xiamen, Jet Aviation in Basle and Dubai, Sepang Aircraft Engineering (SAE) in Kuala Lumpur and ST Aerospace in Singapore. It will grow to include others over time.“Airbus Corporate Jets continually strives to provide excellence in customer care, and the ACJ Service Centre Network that we are building with our business partners is the latest addition to a worldwide support network that is sized for more than 500 customers and operators,” says Benoit Defforge, Managing Director, Airbus Corporate Jets. www.airbuscorporatejets.com

AMAC Sign Four New Contracts Four new contracts on mid size and wide body aircraft have been awarded to AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland. A privately owned A340 from a new customer will be welcomed by AMAC for an A-Check package. An Asian customer has already brought an Airbus A319 aircraft to the facility in Basel, where AMAC will perform a heavy C-check in conjunction with a partial cabin removal and a landing gear overhaul. A second wide body contract has been signed by AMAC for another Airbus A340. The Head-of-State aircraft will undergo a C-Check programme along with a KA-band installation. AMAC will also install a KA-Band on a privately-owned Boeing BBJ aircraft. The STCs for these two KA-Band installations are both developed by AMAC Aerospace. www.amacaerospace.com

Jetex Opens New FBO Terminal Jetex Flight Support, a global leader in executive aviation, announced the opening of its newly built FBO Terminal at Al Maktoum International Airport in the recently rebranded Dubai South Aviation District (previously known as Dubai World Central [DWC]). The addition of the 1,500m2 terminal and dedicated ramp parking space of 50,000m2 makes the facility the largest FBO in Jetex’s worldwide portfolio. Jetex FBO Terminal. www.jetex.com
