Editor’s Welcome

They’re All Business Aircraft ctivity at year’s end is intense for most businesses, especially so for buyers and sellers of business aircraft. Transactions involving equipment that are ordinary and necessary for the furtherance of business typically have significant ramification for a firm’s taxes, thus buyers and sellers want to complete their transactions by December 31. The run up to January 1, 2018 was particularly tense this past year for the US Business Aviation community. With both houses of the US Congress, each with a Republican majority, highly motivated to pass a joint resolution reforming the nation’s tax code, thereby providing President Trump with the first legislative win of his year-old administration, activity in the US Capital was indeed frenetic since tax reform Bills passed by the House of Representatives and by the Senate differed in several ways. For the Business Aviation community, one of the most significant differences involved 100% depreciation for new and used equipment, including business aircraft. Provisions in the House bill treated new and used aircraft similarly, allowing 100% depreciation, but the Senate bill proposed 100% depreciation only for new aircraft. By the time you receive this month’s issue of AvBuyer, tax legislation may be finalized and ready for President Trump’s signature. Only then will we know whether Congress agreed to maintain 100% depreciation for both used and new aircraft, as was the tax code for many years. We feel that there are many unintended consequences in eliminating 100% depreciation for used aircraft. The vast majority of business jets and turboprops are sold to companies and entrepreneurs who have business aircraft. Unequal tax treatment discourages market activity. Without a healthy market for used aircraft, current owners desiring to upgrade will find the market for their

existing aircraft negatively impacted. A robust market for new aircraft requires a robust market for used aircraft. Equal Treatment The die may be cast as we enter 2018, however. If so, we have no choice but to make a better case for why our nation needs all business aircraft—used as well as new. Regardless of whether it was just delivered from the OEM or had done yeoman’s duty for several owners, a business aircraft is business equipment and should be equally treated for tax purposes. The Business Aviation community must do more to communicate the fact that there is one market for business aircraft, not one for new equipment and another for used. Both new and used aircraft serve the same purpose—they are highly capable business tools. Following best practices for servicing and maintaining business aircraft as well as adding new equipment when available, used aircraft maintain their capabilities and provide great value at attractive prices. Furthermore, both new and used aircraft represent substantial investments of capital. To the extent that the tax code should encourage productive investments, both new and used aircraft deserve equal treatment. Today, many well-established Flight Departments appreciate the benefits of purchasing late model used aircraft. Whereas a decade ago the focus was mostly on aircraft delivered from the factory, today Fortune 100 companies look for value in used as well as new aircraft. Indeed, new or used, a business aircraft is a valuable business tool. The entire Business Aviation community would be wise to promote the advantages of all business aircraft— used as well as new.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Business Aviation Market Summary With many aircraft sales and marketing teams returning from a much-deserved holiday break, January sees the New Year begin with great expectations for the business aircraft marketplace. Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators assesses the scene… or those industry professionals who have managed to survive and even thrive through the more-than nine-year period since the financial crisis of late 2008, this has been an exceedingly long recovery. On the good news side, it is encouraging to note that aircraft utilization levels in the key US and European markets have been consistently trending upwards on a yearover-year basis. Led by strong Charter/Part 135 activity levels, flight activity is supported by attractive pricing and competitive posturing that are enticing customers to consider all of their options, whether whole airplane ownership or not.

Used Aircraft Sales Prospects

The sentiment of business aircraft owners and operators continues to rebound from a recent low in Q3 2016, according to the latest Q4 2017 JETNET iQ Survey, a harbinger of better days ahead for Business Aviation. 16

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

Purchase prices for used business aircraft, especially in the Medium and Large jet segments, remain relatively soft, reflecting a classic case where there are more sellers than buyers (see Asset Insight’s analysis on p32-33). Despite the fact that much of the most attractive inventory has been picked over, a wave of wellpedigreed trade-in aircraft will surely be coming into the market during 2018, with the entry into service of the Pilatus PC-24 (FAA- and EASA-certified in December 2017), and expected arrivals of Cessna’s Citation Longitude and Gulfstream G500. Flight test teams at Gulfstream and Bombardier will be pushing the throttles forward throughout the year as the Gulfstream G600 and Bombardier Global 7000 Large-Cabin business jets try to beat the clock that will strike midnight on December 31, 2018.

is fast approaching. Despite a long period of advance notification (some might say too long), an estimate from leading independent MRO provider Duncan Aviation is that a remarkable 40% of the US business aircraft fleet will not be equipped in time to meet the implementation deadline. To put this into perspective, this represents about 8,800 business jet and turboprop aircraft, equivalent to the entire fleet of non-US based business turbines worldwide. Perhaps reminiscent of the infamous ‘Y2K’ information technology challenge that faced many organizations at the turn of the century, ADS-B readiness (or, more correctly, the lack thereof) is looming large on the proverbial industry radar, no doubt representing a steady stream of MRO business as well as one more nail in the fuselage of the very aged fleet of early-generation models. Can it finally be time to put a few more of those old birds out to pasture?

World Economies

On the macroeconomic and geo-political fronts, the economies of North America and Europe continue to expand at a relatively impressive pace. The US economy finished Q3 2017 up 2.3% Year-over-Year (YoY), its 31st consecutive quarterly expansion going back all the way to the beginning of 2010. The Euro Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Area economy closed out Q3 2017 up 2.5% YoY for Q3 2017, its 16th consecutive quarter of growth after a devastating double-dip recession. A major tax reform bill being pushed through the US Congress as we went to press was already providing a run-up in stock markets, with a promise of lower corporate tax rates and temporary tax benefits for low- and middle-income earners. Business aircraft transaction specialists will be watching closely to see how changes to accelerated depreciation and 1031 Like-Kind Exchange rules will impact new and used aircraft sales.

Further Ahead in 2018

Stand by for protracted negotiations on the details of Brexit, a sure-to-be contentious mid-term US Congressional election, more chapters of explosive rhetoric between North Korea and the United States, and what looks to be at least 365 more days of ‘breaking news’ that will continue to influence the levels of confidence that impacts business aircraft buying and selling decisions. A fresh influx of attractive inventory with the entry into service of new aircraft models will continue to have a moderating effect on pricing, continuing the historic buyer’s market for the year to come.

Flight Activity Europe

November 2017 was another growth month for Business Aviation in Europe, with 61,837 flight departures, up 6.1% Year-over-Year (YoY), taking the Year-ToDate (YTD) growth trend to 4.2%. Activity in November 2017 was still 10.5% behind the pre-economic crisis peak in November 2007, but the results continue the recent trend. The biggest growth came in Western Europe, with Business Aviation departures up significantly in the leading markets of the UK, Spain and Switzerland. YTD, Germany has added the most flights. Of the smaller markets, Greece, Belgium and Portugal enjoyed well over 15% growth this month, with flights from Poland and Croatia up 25% YoY. Business Aviation flights from Turkey were down 12%, but are still up 6% YTD. France was by far the busiest domestic market, with 7,000 flights, up 2% YoY. Flights from France to Germany were up 11%, and from France to Spain were up 31%. Flights within the UK were up 10% this month. Domestic flights in Italy declined 3%. Business Aviation arrivals into Europe were up due to strong growth in transatlantic connections; elsewhere, arrivals from CIS region and Middle East were flat, and North Africa arrivals were down. Flights to Latin America declined 5% YoY. AOC activity continued to be the main overall growth driver, representing 47% of activity and up 10% YoY. Charter growth rates since the summer have exceeded 8% each month. Private activity slightly improved this month, though it was flat for business jet sectors. “November’s flight activity was typically low-season, but the strong YoY growth is evidence of the ongoing recovery in demand in 2017,” concluded Richard Koe, Managing Director, WingX Advance. “A lot of the additional flying is being operated as Large-Cabin AOC missions, on short European sectors, suggesting some aggressive pricing. “Excess capacity is encouraging the buyer’s market; overall activity this month was still down 10% on the levels of a decade ago, despite the much larger active fleet of aircraft.” MI www.wingx-advance.com  continued on page 24

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

CJI Miami 2017 Overview Corporate Jet Investor Miami 2017 brought together senior level financiers, brokers, arrangers, lawyers, manufacturers, operators, appraisers and others active in business jet transactions in the Americas. Following are some highlights to emerge… Just over half of attendees at CJI Miami 2017 felt more optimistic about the future of Business Aviation. In a poll, 57% said they felt more optimistic about the next ten years. Forty three percent said they didn’t. 40% of US Business Aircraft Won’t Meet ADS-B Deadline: Duncan Aviation president Aaron Hilkeman said to achieve 100% compliance within the next 25 months, the current ADS-B installation rate of 1,758 per month for US-based piston and turbine airplanes and helicopters would have to nearly double to 3,390 per month, which he believes is impossible. ‘Lost Decade’ for Light & Mid-size Jets Nears End: According to Jon Raviv, US aerospace and defense senior equity analyst at Citi Research, the Light and Mid-size jet markets have now ‘found a floor’ since deliveries exceeded long-term trends in the 2000s, which ‘cannibalized’ demand for new aircraft this decade. Raviv is calling for flat deliveries in these segments over the next three years, averaging 444 aircraft annually. “Large-Cabin jets could be on the cusp of a ‘lost decade’, but new products such as the Global 7000 and Gulfstream G500 and G600 can aid the escape,” he said. Aircraft Finance - Stay in Your Comfort Zone: That’s the message to the Business Aviation sector from financier Dave Labrozzi. Asked where he saw the financing providers getting into trouble in the future, he said: “My message to the community is very simple. If it seems too good to be true… right? The main objective is to be comfortable, stick to your knitting, stay in your comfort zone.” He added that a problem he foresaw was banks entering the aviation financing market, “loading up like there’s no tomorrow”, doing a number of aircraft deals and then suddenly stopping. Focus on the Future: Embraer’s Michael Amalfitano offered a glimpse of the future of Business Aviation, noting how it had been changing during the last few decades. “We believe there’s a new

platform – a new ecosystem – out there…It’s no longer about the airplane. It’s no longer about owning the plane. It’s very much about how you want to create an experience for the passenger, to have the experience of corporate flight,” he said. Amalfitano says this is happening because Millennials – Business Aviation’s future customers – have a very different approach to how they buy and use things to previous generations. They use “the device in their palm to buy everything they need and then share it with everyone they know.” Making the Case for the Business Jetliner: The used aircraft market is growing across the Business Aviation sector, including business jetliners, says Drew Gough, Boeing Business Jets. He explained how people who may not be able to afford a new jetliner are snapping up used aircraft thanks to a range of features including low depreciation and the amount of extra space and baggage capacity they offer. Current Trends from Rolls-Royce: Dean Roberts, of Rolls-Royce North America, highlighted some current trends within the US Business Aviation industry, including: • • • •

Flight departments are declining as a proportion of Rolls-Royce North America’s total fleet; The number of high net worth individuals who own aircraft is growing, mainly outside the US; Charter and management companies are slowly growing through consolidation; There is an increase in the entry of commercial airlines into the Business Aviation sector (“a very positive sign for us in Business Aviation”, Roberts notes).

Depreciation the ‘New Normal’: Chris Miller of Shearwater Aero Capital focussed on depreciation as being “the new normal”, noting the Business Aviation industry is acting like a mature industry such as car manufacturing, and the data are showing aircraft depreciating by 10% a year. “That’s the sign of a mature market,” he concluded. MI www.corporatejetinvestor.com

Africa’s Bizjet Fleet to Grow 25% Africa's private jet fleet is poised to grow more than 25% in the next eight years, Global Jet Capital projects. Each of the continent's regions will see a net increase... New analysis of industry data by Global Jet Capital reveals that the continent’s business jet market is set for significant growth. The company predicts 160 new aircraft being delivered to the continent by 2025. These aircraft are forecast to have a total value of around $3.9bn, or just under $500m per year. A key driver

behind this growth will be the southern Africa region which is expected to account for around a third of all the jets based in the continent. The southern Africa fleet will expand by a net total of about 40 aircraft, to 184, in the next eight years. West Africa will see its fleet climb from 97 to 124; North Africa from 79 to 101; Central Africa from 59 to 75, and East Africa from 29 to 37. Ensuring operators have sufficient financing options was one of the major topics being discussed at the recent AfBAC.

“We recently carried out research amongst Business Aviation professionals which showed that more than three quarters expect the demand for aircraft financing to increase in the next five years,” said Simon Davies, Global Jet Capital vice president, sales, Africa and the Middle East. “It is critically important that clients are able to access financial support in order to continue to develop the African Business Aviation fleet.” MI www.globaljetcapital.com continued on page 28

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

PNC Aviation Finance notes there were 516 used retail sales in the business jet market in 3Q 2017, up 5.7% over Q3 2016, but down 8% from Q3 2014 (the record for any Q3 used retail transaction amount). Jeff Dunn explores… As of Q3 2017 there were 1,617 transactions Year-To-Date (YTD) in 2017 in the used market, up 7.5% Year-over-Year (YoY) from 2016. Updated Q3 2017 data suggest a year-end transaction forecast between 2,098 and 2,223 used business jets, and while a difference of 125 transactions seems like a large amount for a single quarter, the number can be broken down for further analyses: •

The conservative forecast (2,098 transactions for year-end) indicates a Q4 2017 total of 481 used business jets. If that number were to hold true, it would be the lowest Q4 amount of used sales since 473 transactions in Q4 2011. As dismal as that number may seem by today’s standards it was still the best quarter of 2011. The more optimistic side reflects on the fact that 2017 has been a year in which industry experts have attributed an uptick in used sales. Over the past 10 years, used sales transactions occurring through the end of Q3 have represented an average 72.8% of the year’s total transactions. Using that methodology results in 606 transactions in Q4 2017 and 2,223 for all of 2017 (narrowly dethroning 2014 as the year that realized the most used business jet transactions by 32 aircraft).

Could the higher end of the projection be true? For the same reasons as stated above concerning the conservative projection, it could be; however, those in the industry that follow this market closely have felt a recent slowing in activity.

Market Speed Bumps

“Relative to the last decade, OGARAJETS has had a very strong year – both from a brokerage standpoint and from an inventory perspective,” offers Johnny Foster, President & CEO, OGARAJETS. “The industry still feels very positive, but

inventory remains high to the point where the market cannot absorb all of the supply. “Another new critical aspect to today’s market is depreciation, not tax, but market. Business aircraft are now widely viewed as a piece of capital equipment – they depreciate every year.” This topic of continued Jeff Dunn, PNC Aviation Finance depreciation has been a hard adjustment for many industry veterans, both owners and brokers. “From 2009 to 2014, I had a hard-time – and even apologized to clients – when we would sell their aircraft for less than what they had paid for it five years earlier. “It had become an expectation in many circles that if you paid attention and accurately timed those value fluctuations the industry had become accustomed to prior to the recession, you could make money every time you bought an aircraft. Then inventory was very tight though – 1,000 units for sale, give or take, and more than enough buyers to absorb the supply.”

Q4 2017: High or Low Outcome?

So how will Q4 shape up for transactions? What is likely? Based on industry experts noticing this slight slowdown thus far into Q4, a number erring towards the conservative side of what the data indicate may be a safer projection. Irrespective of how the year-end transactional numbers turn out, there are some certainties that can be taken away from 2017: •

• •

The good-pedigreed, used aircraft that have entered the market have traded quickly – with some aircraft even noticing some slight, short-term value upticks earlier in the year based on the demand; The current used jet market has slowed down a bit in terms of transactions, but has also been picked over from the standpoint of good-pedigreed aircraft – there is likely a correlation between the two; There is still optimism in the market and many believe that 2018 will be another strong year for used aircraft; and The used inventory will need to continue to shrink in order for the new aircraft market to start gaining some real ground.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition Asset quality rebounded from October’s 12-month low (worst) figure, but Ask Price posted a new record low, according to Asset Insight’s market analysis of November 30, 2017. Tony Kioussis elaborates… Covering 92 fixed-wing models and 1,743 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’, the recent analysis showed Jet and Turboprop transactions for tracked models decreased by more than 75% over the past month. Ask Prices for tracked models decreased 3.1%, establishing another record low figure. Since December 30, 2016 Ask Price for tracked models has decreased virtually every month for an overall loss of 24%. • Large Jets: Led the loss column, falling 25.7% (posting another record low through a 4.5% reduction in November); • Medium Jets: Sustained a nominal monthly loss, but that created another record low figure and a total loss of 8.9% since December 2016; • Small Jets: Ask Price improved 2.2% last month, but the group has suffered a drop of 15.2% since December 2016; • Turboprops: Exhibited the smallest price fluctuation all year, and ask prices increased 0.8% in November, decreasing the group’s 2017 loss to 2.3%. Inventory Fleet Maintenance Condition The decreasing Quality Rating Trendline (Table C) illustrates absorption of higher quality aircraft this year. Turboprop sales last month bucked this trend pushing the overall Asset Quality to the top end of the ‘Very Good’ range. Specifically: The Quality Rating improved to 5.230 from last month’s 5.165, on Asset Insight’s scale of 2.5 to 10. Given the market’s focus on higher quality assets, Asset Insight expects to see the figure decrease based on Q4 sales trends. The tracked fleet’s average Maintenance Exposure (an aircraft’s accumulated/ embedded maintenance expense) posted a nominal 0.1% improvement to $1.452m from last month’s $1.454m, but that still represents a 5% Exposure increase over the past 90 days. In other words, higher asset quality units have been the ones transacting.

30 days, posting yet another 12-month high figure of 64%. At 48.2% Turboprops once again had the best (lowest) Ratio; Large Jets registered a record high 58.3%; Medium Jets improved to 64.2%; and Small Jets posted a 12-month high figure of 77.8%.

Market Summary Our tracked fleet inventory decreased by only one unit this month. This is not surprising, considering the lower number of transactions compared to October. Nor is the industry’s continued preferential fondness for higher quality aircraft. With 49% of tracked models and 55% of inventory posting an ETP Ratio above 40%, it will be interesting to see how values react during the last few trading weeks of 2017. Large Jets: Sales activity during November was light, decreasing the tracked inventory fleet by 1.5% (six units), and primarily higher asset quality aircraft traded. This was reflected in the group’s Quality Rating decrease to a 12-month low, although the figure remained in the ‘Excellent’ range at 5.297. Maintenance Exposure worsened/increased by 2.6% and, with a record low Ask Price, the group’s ETP Ratio could not help but suffer. Medium Jets: Sales activity decreased inventory 1.3% (seven units) and the group maintained its ‘Very Good’ Quality Rating at 5.168. Maintenance Exposure improved 0.8%, and that was sufficient to decrease the group’s ETP Ratio a bit, even though Ask Price retained its record low figure. If the optimistic Q4 sales prediction Asset Insight made last month is to materialize, this group’s sales activity needs to register a dramatic increase in December. Small Jets: With a 3.4% (16 units) decrease to the tracked fleet, this group experienced a fairly active month while improving its ‘Excellent’ Quality Rating to 5.312. Maintenance Exposure worsened nominally and continued registering a 12-month high figure. While average Ask Price improved 2.2%, the increase proved insufficient to favorably affect the group’s ETP Ratio. Turboprops: The group’s Quality Rating spiked 5.24% to achieve a ‘Very Good’ rating Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio of 5.126 (a 12-month best figure). The 1.3% The ETP Ratio (Chart B) calculates an aircraft's inventory fleet decrease (four units) also maintenance exposure as it relates to the ask resulted in a 4.8% Maintenance Exposure price. This is achieved by dividing an aircraft's improvement.

How Is the Business Aviation Market Looking?

Dave Higdon pieces together the evidence from 2017 and considers what the signs are for the used aircraft sales market in 2018…

H

appy 2018! So how did we do in the year just passed? Thanks to some savvy observers and their tireless tracking of sales and resales, we're blessed with some observations – even though this is being written with three weeks left in the old year. New aircraft sales throughout the year were down-to-flat, with different segments rising and falling according to quarterly reports from GAMA. Expectations for the year's end were similar, essentially. But in the more dynamic used jet segment, 2017 saw steady sales delivering a market with a low percentage of the fleet in play. That assessment comes courtesy of numerous analysts’ observations and calculations. Rolland Vincent, of Rolland Vincent Associates, pegged the end-of-year percentage of the fleet ‘For Sale’ at about 10.3%. That marks another year of decline for the used fleet ‘For Sale’ – and the lowest level for years. “Now that percentage is likely to grow a bit as year-end closings on used sales release a surge of new trade-ins into the market,” Vincent explained. 36

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

“But it's unlikely to push up numbers appreciably. What it will do is add some late-model business turbine aircraft to the existing pool, and that could briefly impact prices.” Brian Foley, of Brian Foley Associates, noted the strength of the economies in North America while Europe and emerging markets show signs of strengthening, too. And he observed these factors won't change much in the coming year.

Key to Strong 2017 Sales

A popular view is that we remain in a buyer’s market, but just barely so. When the percentage falls under 10% the outlook traditionally shifts to a seller’s market. Uncharacteristically, however, prices remained soft throughout 2017. “We started with soft prices, and they've stayed that way all year,” Vincent observed. “They've been stuck in neutral all year. “We haven't seen the usual incremental gains in asking prices typical as supplies decline.” By all rights, prices should have been increasing all year, he explained. “For the second straight year, that hasn't been the case.”

The expected influx of trade-in aircraft may cause some prices to fall, but no one is betting on that outcome. “People who searched for bargains were met with stable-market prices while others looked for niche aircraft – also at stable prices,” Vincent summarized. After enjoying a strong period following the Great Recession, the Large-Cabin jet market seems finally headed toward prices dropping back to ‘reasonable’ territory, with the formerly depressed Light and Medium jet segments again experiencing the level of demand known to keep them competitive. But the used inventory, Foley noted, as it stands, has been “picked over.” Light and Medium jets struggled to find buyers through most of 2016 and H1 2017. Today, they once again shine as corporate aircraft candidates.

The New Model Influence

With so many models in development or about to win their wings, OEMs have a backlog of orders. Deliveries of those new models should continue the fleet growth we've experienced in the midst of the Great Recession – and beyond. With new sales and leasing models emerging, more operators will find themselves with innovative options for benefiting from business aircraft. And with the business aircraft Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

industry's long-term habit of juggling sequential programs at once, the prospect of the pipeline drying out feels remote. But other factors stand to complicate future purchases of business aircraft. Still, there's potential for the used aircraft sales market via developments in the new aircraft field. “I think 2019 and beyond could be a bit improved as a lot of new models start hitting the market – models such as the Gulfstream G500 and G600, Bombardier Global 7000, Textron Longitude and Hemisphere,” Foley observed.

Conflicted Tax Bills

For Americans the past three months brought an endless stream of news and rhetoric focused on so-called “tax reform” as a tonic for an already strong economy. Claims that Americans need a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the economy to grow are heatedly refuted by economists. Three percent growth for the past two quarters, coupled with the lowest unemployment numbers in years and record corporate profits all indicate no need for tax cuts to incentivize business investments. Even the businesses say so. But that hasn't stopped the legislative snowball from gathering hundreds of pages of changes to the tax codes, some of which could bode badly for business aircraft operators. Vincent pointed out that the two bills in consideration differ in 

how they'd treat the purchase of a used business aircraft. “One bill keeps the accelerated depreciation available for years now, while the other does away with it,” Vincent explained. “Which one we'll get must be worked out in a conference committee of members for the House and Senate.” Losing the accelerated depreciation on used business aircraft would likely hurt sales, Vincent said, and possibly send the market back to where it was on the cusp of the Great Recession a decade ago. “We don't know, or won't know, how this resolves because the House and Senate bills differ completely in their treatment of accelerated depreciation,” Vincent concluded.

What’s The Impact of It All?

Dealers and brokers managed to work their way through 2017 without a great deal of attrition, but it took work. Barring any major upheavals from tax changes and world affairs, 2018 should bring more of the same – and a few changes. Among factors dragging on business turbine aircraft sales, Foley said, is “…buyer realization that aircraft now depreciate like cars and dishwashers.

This type of decline is actually typical for capital goods. “Business jets had better residuals in the past due to there being more demand than supply. According to AMSTAT there are now over 22,000 business jets in operation worldwide which would make them seem more of a commodity today.” But, he added, “The most profound factor not helping is the heightened interest in flying privately without having to buy (i.e. through charter, membership programs, jet cards, etc.). This is reflective of a new generation willing to pay a premium to have access to many different experiences on an as-needed basis rather than committing to ownership. “For these same reasons as new, I would anticipate used aircraft sales to be flat into 2018 as well.” If anything, 2018 could see some balance restored to the business turbine market. But with turmoil in American politics and world affairs the new normal, any forecast is tentative at best – and risky at worst. T Are you looking for more Market Insight Articles?

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T BUYING & SELLING

What are the Used Aircraft Sales Trends? Vref’s Fletcher Aldredge considers the inventory of used aircraft ‘For Sale’. What will he uncover about aircraft value?

T

he number of aircraft ‘For Sale’ can directly impact the sale price of the aircraft. Looking at the inventory as compared to one year ago, in general, the inventory numbers are decreasing. Some aircraft are even getting to the point where it’s difficult to find a good one ‘For Sale’. The ‘good aircraft’ tend to be US-registered, have great maintenance history and the correct equipment. (Equipment will vary depending on what aircraft you are looking for, but may include negative items like an aft galley or outdated avionics. Price is still a major factor, but may not be as much of a driving force as it has been in recent years. After the US election and the ‘Trump Bump’, there has been renewed excitement and an increase in activity for both General and Business Aviation. (That’s not to say that they are related, it’s a simple observation.) With activity levels rising and inventory levels declining, there’s a fresh energy and much needed boost in confidence. 2017 was a year of much anticipation. Judging by what we are seeing, it generally did not disappoint. 42

Aircraft Value Analysis

Table A (opposite) includes only 2010-model aircraft. As always, it’s important to remember that each serial number is unique, and values can vary greatly. (Simply put, there are too many variables to consider all in one table.) ‘Percent of New’ is a comparison of the original MSRP in 2010 to Vref retail values as of Q4 2016 and Q4 2017. There are several noteworthy items within the table. Two models which increased in value over the year are the Diamond DA40 piston-single and the Quest Kodiak 100 turboprop. In fact, the Diamond DA40 increased in value for a second straight year. Additionally: • Ten models held a steady value, five of which were pistons, two turboprop aircraft and three helicopters. Ten different models have lost only 1% in value this year, including six pistons, three fanjets and one turboprop. • 16 aircraft in the table have lost 2-5% in value (comprised mostly of jets). • Two models have gone down more than 5% this year, a huge improvement from the 16 that met this criterion last year.

Bringing up the bottom is the G550 and Agusta AW119KE which have lost 9% and 11% respectively this year. However, this isn’t necessarily an accurate representation of the current market. The G550 percent of fleet ‘For Sale’ is down from 7.7% to 3.7%, which is a drastic improvement. Keep in mind, some yearly depreciation is expected, and this is only a small sample of 41 different aircraft models. If we look at the percent of new from Q4 2017, there are a total of 14 models that are still 70% or greater of their new value. This means that these 14 models are depreciating at an eight-year average of 3.7% or less. There are 15 other aircraft that are depreciating at an eight-year average of 3.9% to 6%. Of the 41 models polled, 37 of them are depreciating at less than 8% per year. Considering that these aircraft are now eight years old, these numbers seem respectable.

What To Know About Airspace Plans

lobal airspace is surprisingly integrated. This is partially because consensus-based working groups help craft and ensure the dynamic airspace technology requirements are truly globally in their representation. Airspace plans are important to flight departments because they are an indicator of future equipage and operational requirements, details of which are often buried in the plan itself. Airspace plans, however, are influenced by industry lobby groups and may be politically driven. As we have seen all too often, plans focused on airport throughput, capacity and efficiency to allow greater air carrier operations, require some changes in the way General Aviation operates. A recent example within the US and utilized by at least 39 business aircraft operators is Controller

Pilot Data Link Control – Departure Clearance (CPDLC-DCL). Since last October the FAA has implemented DCL at all its planned 55 airports. Due to the program’s success, the US government has added a further seven for completion during 2019. To be fair, however, not all plans are geared to the needs of air carriers. The implementation of Wide Area Augmentation System/Lateral Path Vertical (WAAS/LPV) approaches has been a significant benefit for General Aviation. The success of this program is due, in part, to the rapid deployment of 3,863 LPV procedures serving 1,884 airports, of which 1,121 are at non-ILS airports. An additional 652 Localizer Performance (LP) approach procedures serve 492 airports. Some plans, implemented or underway, are truly universal in their applicability, such as Terrain

Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B). Irrespective of politics and lobbying interests that may have initiated these safety and efficiency technologies, there is no doubt about their overall intention and outcome benefits. NBAA works tirelessly for the interests of its members and along with AOPA and GAMA, supports the wider global General Aviation community. When it comes to airspace priorities, these and other GA organization help balance what might be a concentration on air carrier (Scheduled Airlines and freight) interests. As unmanned aircraft interests enter the fray, however, the future will certainly be more complex.

the global airspace design and user integration. These plans are multilevel, with each one covering volumes as you drill down into their layers. From a top-level perspective they are quite similar, but with a tendency to differentiate themselves using terminology more than anything else. “Nations divided by a common language”, one might say. Yet all the same, these plans are: • US (FAA) o NextGen Implementation Plan (NGIP and segmented as NSIP) • Europe (Eurocontol) o Single European Skies ATM Research (SESAR) Program • Worldwide (ICAO) o Aviation System Block Upgrade (ASBU) Program o Oceanic and remote airspace Continued on page 48

“Several other nations have more internally-focused or region-based plans.”

Existing CPDLC-DCL Towers

Voluntary consensus-based sub-committees, representative of both government and industry, advise these plans. • RTCA for FAA, using sub-committees • EUROCAE for Europe, using working groups • MDWG for ICAO, as multi-disciplinary work groups Also, other governmental agencies and not-for-profit organizations provide data and analysis to aviation agencies in support of their efforts. For example, the FAA outsources significant tasking of data gathering and analysis to NASA as another agency and to MITRE as a not-for-profit organization. Several other nations have more internally-focused or region-based plans. These include nations of the BRIC group, Canada, Australia and others. Often their plans are integrated into wider ongoing efforts, such as China’s Five-Year Plan. Aviation administrations tend to have two major administrative branches: • •

Air Traffic Management (ATM) with a primary focus on airspace and airport services (Note that in Europe ATM is handled by Eurocontrol). Aircraft Certification with a primary focus on safety certification pertaining to equipage and operations services to the users of airspace. (Note that in Europe these services are provided by the European Aviation Safety Agency.)

These two branches compete for priorities while heavily influencing the direction and makeup of airspace planning. Both require equipage to meet forecasted changes, and both bear significant burden in cost and disruption of the status quo to achieve individual and collective goals. As airspace and infrastructure users, the General Aviation community has a major stake in airspace development while demonstrating a keen interest in both equipage needs and operational requirements. Moving from analogue to digital and satellite-based technologies the FAA improves capacity and efficiency in the national airspace while reducing noise, carbon emission and fuel burn. This transformation is accomplished through the FAA’s NextGen Implementation Plan, which is constantly revised to accommodate the shifting needle of accomplishment. More recently the FAA has added a whole new section to include a focus on the North-East Corridor (NEC), the region of airspace extending from Washington DC to Boston. This busy airspace is of concern to the FAA, partially because of the high concentration of major airports and partially because of the ripple effect of delays and infrastructure issues across the remaining national airspace. Wisely focusing on several short-term goals, the FAA hopes to make tangible headway over the next 18 months or so, with a further leap forward another three years after that. One NEC project specific to General Aviation (to be conducted by NBAA during 2018) is participation in design and testing for vertical climb escape  48

routes for both TEB and HPN airports. This is part of deconfliction efforts where several airports operate in closeproximity. In this case, two very busy General Aviation airports (TEB and HPN) are in close-proximity to LGA, JFK and EWR focusing on air carrier activity. Major areas of NextGen activity include… Multiple Runway Operations (MRO): including both dependent and independent parallel runway operations and wake turbulence separation, known as wake recategorization. Impacts to General Aviation occur when operating in and out of primary airports where timely access is crucial. There are no scheduled equipage plans for General Aviation. Surface: including primarily air traffic tools such as surveillance, system-wide information management (SWIM), time-based flow management (TBFM), traffic flow management system (TFMS) and terminal flight data manager (TFDM). As with MRO, General Aviation should experience timely access in and out of primary airports. There is no planned equipage for General Aviation. Data Comm: including CPDLC-DCL for departure clearance and later CPDLC-C for en route clearance. Supplementing voice, this popular feature is to be found first at primary and soon thereafter at secondary airports and traffic control centers, providing efficiency and faster access to GA operators. Note that in the future, equipage beyond VHF DataLink (VDL Mode 2), to include data recording, may be required.

PBN: Performance Based Navigation does include WAAS-LPV that directly impacts General Aviation equipage and operational approval. There are over 9,000 PBN procedures already in place, including those centered on Metroplexes such as LAS that will have an immediate and relevant impact to General Aviation. Typically equipage changes for GA are centered on flight management systems and associated operational approvals, providing an advantage to flight departments that regularly operate throughout these specific regions. Below are some other PBN improvements underway or planned… ‘Established on RNP’ (EoR): is a Required Navigation Performance (RNP) procedure introduced at airports such as KDEN. This precisely defined curved approach, including aircraft separation, does not affect GA aircraft as they are not and will not be required to equip. Equivalent Lateral Spacing Operations (ELSO): applies to primary airport runway operations and requires a level of navigational accuracy found in current GPS systems. Time Based Operations: cover a whole host of future procedures, where the predictability of an aircraft to be at a specific airspace metering point at a predetermined time is a function of the aircraft’s ability and performance. For General Aviation, the anticipated equipage will be some form of control to ensure a time-centric ‘PBN real-time adjustment’ of aircraft parameters to reach the metering points Continued on page 56

in a fuel-efficient manner. While newly built aircraft may find it easy to accomplish, legacy used aircraft will be a lot harder to conform to requirements. PBN is only as good as the weather permits, so Low Visibility Operations (LVO) go a long way to enabling flights as planned by executing take-offs and landings during periods of low visibility and poor Runway Visual Range (RVR). A future of low visibility operations, coupled to PBN continuous descent approaches (CDAs), is not far away. These may assure flight to touch down and roll out from as far as 200nm out from the airport. In fact, for General Aviation, this future is very close. More and more aircraft are equipping with lower cost Enhanced Flight Vision Systems (EFVS), while receiving operational approval to lower minimums.

Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADS-B)

Replacing existing ground-based radars, ADS-B ground infrastructure is already complete and operational. Via a January 1, 2020 mandate, aircraft operating in airspace that requires transponders today will also require ADS-B Out conforming equipment. Correspondingly, those transponders will need to be compliant. Aircraft with ADS-B Out broadcast their position and flight trend information to both air traffic control and other aircraft able to view the data using ADS-B In, which is not part of the upcoming mandate. Unfortunately, with 25 months to go, as of December 2017, only around 37% of US-based business jets are 56

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

equipped with ADS-B Out. With a rate of approximately 212 aircraft upgrades per month, it looks like a quarter of the business jet fleet could be grounded on January 2, 2020. This grim picture is exacerbated by an increasing demand for Data Comm upgrades to operate in oceanic tracks and remote regions. While not a universal mandate, Data Comm involves very specific aircraft equipage requirements centered on PBN and Data Comm (FANS) and is needed to access dedicated paths and altitudes. These phased requirements, begun several years ago, will increasingly apply to a greater number of business aircraft operations.

“More and more aircraft are equipping with lower cost Enhanced Flight Vision Wrap Up Systems The FAA coordinates its NextGen implementations (EFVS), while along timelines adjusted by budget constraints and the impact of reviews by the White House Office of receiving Management and Budget. It uses industry operational representation to help guide its focus and priorities. It coordinates its harmonization with ICAO, Eurocontrol approval to and now with the FAA-RTCA’s Joint Analysis Team (JAT), and it monitors the effectiveness of each lower implementation, including whether equipped operators minimums.” use the new procedures. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are the “wild card” in Airspace Plans. With rapid progression of unmanned operations from ‘Class G airspace with waiver’ to ‘other airspace without waiver’, its challenges are just beginning. T

W

hen it comes to arranging an international flight, is it unrealistic to expect consistent, reliable trip support…delivered at a reasonable price? Not if you get your planning right. Following are some steps can you take to help guarantee smooth operations worldwide. Tip #1: Choose a well-established trip planning provider. Are you arranging a flight to an unfamiliar destination? If so, you need to know that your aircraft and passengers will be in dependable hands. It may seem obvious but is nevertheless 58

well worth stating: Greater consistency of service can be ensured by choosing a trip planning provider with an extensive global network. When you work with a well-established international company, you are enlisting the services of an experienced team of trusted advisors that have the local knowledge required to arrange the best available support on the ground according to your requirements. By utilizing your trip planning company’s approved facilities, you become part of a mutually beneficial supply chain. This can help to elevate the overall standard of service received. If your trip planning company is bringing a lot of business to a local FBO, naturally the team on the ground will endeavor to ensure that your aircraft is well looked-after. You can also benefit from the economies of scale that come from working with a larger provider, and you will enjoy greater consistency in pricing for fueling and other ground handling services across different locations.

Tip #2: Ask the right questions before taking your flight. While your trip support provider can recommend an FBO, you need to ask the correct questions at the trip planning stage, enabling your provider to select a facility that matches your requirements. It’s worth asking: • •

• •

Is the local line-service team familiar with working on your particular model of aircraft? How does the competence of the ramp staff and standard of maintenance services they deliver compare with other FBOs in the vicinity? Are the quality and availability of passenger lounges and ground transportation acceptable? Will snooze rooms, showers or recreational amenities be available to help your crew relax and unwind? Passengers on private jets are generally High

Net-Worth Individuals who are accustomed to a certain standard of service. You don’t want your passengers flying into just anywhere; the lounge needs to reach a certain standard. As such, it’s important to get the full picture on the level of VIP guest facilities available. Quality of customer service is also paramount. The friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of an FBO team can make or break a trip. Perhaps your guests wish to book a room at a specific hotel, or are requesting inflight catering for special dietary requirements. Concierge staff that are well-versed in the local area and proactive in assisting can save precious time. For corporate travelers, time is often the most valuable commodity. Thus time is the number one consideration. Create a memorable experience for your passengers for all the right reasons by selecting an FBO with high-quality facilities and a dependable Continued on page 62 concierge team.

“Fuel hydrants are not always present, and if your fuel has to be delivered by truck it may be necessary to make arrangements in advance... ”

Tip #3: Save time by being prepared for any special requirements at your destination. If you wish to avoid surprises and potential delays, always cross-check crucial details before your flight. Be sure your aircraft is carrying all necessary equipment, particularly when traveling to smaller airfields in more remote locations. For instance, it is mandatory to provide your own tow bar at many airports. If you don’t have one onboard, then parking might not be confirmed, leaving your crew in a sticky situation. Larger airplanes may require other specific pieces of equipment, such as stairs or baggage handling systems. It pays to double-check availability before you fly. This reinforces the importance of working with a knowledgeable and well-connected trip planning company that is familiar with all the requirements and the situation on the ground at your destination. The same advice applies where fuel is concerned. In addition to ensuring that the correct type of fuel is available, the delivery method also needs to be considered. Fuel hydrants are not always present, and if your fuel has to be delivered by truck it may be necessary to make arrangements in advance (particularly if it needs to be brought in from outside 62

the airfield). Organizing such deliveries can lead to additional costs and a longer time spent on the ground. To avoid unnecessary headaches, always make sure the proper preparations are made in advance. Tip #4: Provide complete information on your aircraft, passengers and crew. Help expedite processes when your aircraft lands by always submitting full details on your aircraft, cargo, passengers and crew well before your arrival. This enables your trip planning company to ensure that all the necessary arrangements are in place, so you won’t face any unexpected holdups or incur additional costs at the airport. The FBO team on the ground would prefer to know exactly what they will be dealing with in advance. This knowledge empowers them to make all preparations required to deliver the smoothest possible service on the ramp. Just one little piece of information can make a world of difference to your experience, so be sure to offer as much detail as possible on your aircraft and the services you require. The ground-handling team will be grateful to work with an open and proactive operator, as this helps them serve you more efficiently by allowing them to plan ahead. Continued on page 64

“The most reliable way to ensure quality of service is to seek out facilities with industry affiliations. ”

Tip #5: Look for FBOs with recognized industry affiliations. Your aircraft is an expensive piece of equipment. It goes without saying that you wish to entrust the care and maintenance of your aviation assets only to well-trained professionals, but how do you know which FBO to choose? The most reliable way to ensure quality of service is to seek out facilities with industry affiliations. For peace of mind, choose an FBO certified in accordance with International Standard for Business Aircraft Handlers (IS-BAH). Acknowledged as the gold standard of industry best practice for Business Aviation, ISBAH was jointly developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and National Air Transportation Association (NATA), and is bringing greater standardization to groundhandling operations on a global scale. Another desirable certification to seek is NATA’s Safety 1st program. Established more than 20 years ago, the program offers world-class training for FBO and ground handling staff and is currently implemented at more than 800 locations worldwide. Choosing an FBO that complies with these recognized international standards helps ensure your aircraft, passengers and crew are well looked-after wherever you are 64

operating, and is your guarantee that the highest standards of safety and service will be adhered to at all times.

In Summary…

By following the steps outlined above, you can maximize your chances of receiving the best possible FBO services when flying internationally. While quality can undoubtedly vary, industry bodies such as IBAC and NATA are helping to usher in a new era of standardization, making it easier to determine which facility is best suited to your requirements. Ultimately, the most valuable advice is to employ the services of a knowledgeable and well-connected trip planning provider—one that can help you navigate the range of options available and deliver the best possible solutions for your flights to new and unfamiliar destinations.

How to Get Better Control of Fuel Costs

It forms a big part of your annual operating budget, but how can operators better control their fuel purchase practices? Dave Higdon offers tips… ew are better placed to understand the relationship between cold hard cash and high-speed flight than those who pay the bills for your Flight Department. In these days of increasing costs, skilled managers add value to their flight operations by controlling all three major cost items: Flight crew staffing, maintenance and upkeep, and fuel costs. Setting an operating budget demands a working knowledge of all three items and how those factors interact. For example, budgeting for ‘X’ hours flying per year sets the bar for maintenance (based on hourly costs) and a

F

66

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

concomitant estimate of fuel costs. That’s simple enough, providing the person developing the budget recognizes that changing any one of those three factors automatically brings a related change to the other numbers. In reality, plenty of people put tremendous effort into controlling their fuel spending. Though consumers lack any way to influence pump prices, they enjoy total control over when, how much and where they choose to fill their tanks. Since fuel costs account for the largest share of variable operation costs, managing fuel use and fuel purchases greatly influence the department’s budget.

dependent on the airports you use. By taking these precautions, you will avoid penalizing your operation by paying for a fuel club membership that's not usable at the majority of the airports you visit. Most of these programs offer guidance to help you use their cards. Once you have one, use the tool even if it doesn't always get you the lowest price.

Tip #2: Use Fuel Price Trackers

Various tools and programs exist solely to track and report fuel prices at airports around the country and across the globe. The better of these trackers update daily, while the best update even more frequently. By entering a route or point of origin and destination, these programs typically will produce a list of airports along the route as well as their fuel prices at the time of the last check. A quick internet check or phone call can then confirm whether the posted prices remain in effect. As an added bonus, making an advanced reservation can get you an additional discount at some airports. Within this article, we’ll consider the steps needed to keep your operation on – or under – your fuel-budget estimate. Following are some of the best tips and practices…

Tip #1: Join a Fuel Program

The Business Aviation community includes numerous vendors and program operators offering fuel cost control tools for those who enroll with them and use their systems. By contracting with vendors, these tools guarantee a lower price than the posted pump price in exchange for a minimum commitment. Do check that a particular program (e.g., a card arrangement) is accepted among the FBOs and airports your operation typically frequents. You may find some adjustments are needed, Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Tip #3: Consider the Most Efficient Route

Flight planning for fuel costs may not be an everyday occurrence, but on occasion a slight change in the route flown can yield big savings without appreciably adding to the trip length (thereby offsetting any fuel savings). Checking route fuel prices – through programs like those noted above – may reveal potential savings by landing at a different airport for the meeting, without refueling, then, by refueling somewhere else. As an example, a trip last fall required us to make a technical stop that yielded a saving of $1.40 per gallon. On a 280-gallon uplift of jet fuel, that $1.40 of per-gallon savings translated to spending $392 less! Imagine savings like that multiple times a year. The habit could almost become a profit center of its own.

“...if home field fuel costs are the lowest – and the aircraft is capable – tankering extra fuel can reduce total fuel expenses for a trip.” Tip #4: How About Fuel Tankering?

Where weight-and-balance considerations allow, some benefit may come from uplifting more fuel than a trip requires. Yes, it will slow your climb and could limit what's carried in the cabin, but the chances are that it won't. Many pilots like to fly with the fuel level suggested by flight planning; that is, fuel needed plus reserves for weather and a diversion. Carrying the least called-for saves fuel, helps climb performance and gives cruise speed a bit of an edge. But if home field fuel costs are the lowest – and the aircraft is capable – tankering extra fuel can reduce total fuel expenses for a trip. That is especially the case when the fuel capacity allows for a round-trip flight without refueling. Even when an airplane can't tanker round-trip fuel, the destination fuel price may be less – which is an incentive to fully top off before returning to home base.

Tip #5: Slow Down, You Fly Too Fast…

All aircraft offer a published maximum cruise speed. Why do we fly if we don't want to go as fast as possible? The answer involves another book speed: Maximum-range cruise speed. 68

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

Throttling back isn't solely for ‘tailwind days’. Flying at maximum-range speed (even though you're flying a much shorter trip) will provide a measurable decline in fuel costs, with only a small increase in the en route time. The vast majority of our trips are between 350500nm. Sacrificing 40 knots on a 500nm trip may add 15-20 minutes to the trip – with a savings of 15-20% in fuel not used.

What's ahead?

Putting these fuel-saving steps into effect this January brings the potential of a full year of fuel savings compared to posted prices – because fuel costs show little sign of declining as we saw earlier in the decade. Demand increases and supply adjustments have largely ended any semblance of a glut in petroleum supplies. The business turbine fleet continues to grow, and flight hours are up in many parts of the world. Even as OEMs continue to advance the fuel efficiency of their engines and aircraft, the changes fall short of offsetting the higher prices expected in the next decade. Start practicing fuel-saving habits today and help your bottom line tomorrow. T

“It was therefore necessary for extra conduits, coaxial cables and fiber optics bundles to be installed and stowed until later required.”

Identify the Jet Connectivity Upgrade Early

When planning for the longer-term, paying as little as possible for an upgrade in the short-term is less important than finding better solutions that offer flexibility to incorporate future modifications. Thinking long-term will reduce upgrade costs and down-time later on. As an example, during our last connectivity installation, when ground-based internet service capability was installed in the aircraft, we intentionally provisioned additional hardware as we predicted a new generation of advancements would come to market in about five years’ time. It was therefore necessary for extra conduits, coaxial cables and fiber optics bundles to be installed and stowed until later required. The advantage is that much of the labor was paid-for up front. True to our expectation, 4G ground-based technology became available in the US recently. Having done the ground-work early, we’re well-positioned to enjoy larger bandwidth capability with minimal disruption and expense. s our corporate jet reaches its second birthday, we have started planning a new budget accounting for the many items that will no longer be covered by the new aircraft warranty. In planning for the future, the main discussion has centered on what investments will be necessary to maintain our aircraft in peak condition, and how to continue satisfying the technological expectations of our demanding and tech-savvy executives. The ongoing question is whether the right choices are being made. Is an effective backbone being built to provision the aircraft for future enhancements? The questions are designed to help prevent the jet from becoming obsolete by future technological advancements.

Identify the Jet Connectivity Vendor Early

Just as important as planning and provisioning for the future is the need to consider who the provider of your hardware and software will be. Focus on vendors that have an ongoing solid footing in the market, and demonstrate a proven track-record of designing upgradable platforms. Well-established vendors will support your equipment for many years ahead, and your equipment will not be left ‘orphaned’ should the vendor go out of business unexpectedly, or be acquired by a larger vendor. Seek to verify whether there is a strong technical customer support network with qualified and experienced technicians. Inflight jet connectivity systems are highly complex, and will very likely require tweaks and troubleshooting advice to work correctly. 

A Note on Privacy and Security

Away from the aircraft cabin – but not entirely removed, a recent article detailed how a person was convicted of a crime by a unique witness. The witness’ name was Alexa... The witness is unique because it is not a real person but an internet-driven item of software that responds to verbal commands and executes tasks. This device listens continuously while recording and analyzing your voice until it hears its wake up cue. In this case, Alexa recorded information that ended up identifying the culprit of a murder. As we handle connectivity in corporate aircraft and connect our airborne networks to the outside world via wireless devices, satellites and ground-based transmitters, we potentially expose data that may affect someone’s personal privacy or corporate security. There is no simple solution to this threat, but the onus rests with the user who must understand that no data are ever fully secured. Thus, applying multi-layered security procedures to the data traveling to and from your aircraft cabin via a secure data transfer center is the bricks and mortar to build your data fortress. Opting to store restricted data files on-board using a data management device is another option. Once on the ground, these restricted files can be transferred through secure VPN directly to your corporate servers. Some connectivity providers already offer on-site servers that have the highest certification for data security protocols. In essence these eliminate the traditional data pathways once the data arrives in its data center, moving all data through secured networks. 72

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

By adding filters to your on-board routers that sift through access requests and eliminate suspicious data transfers, large device updates and heavy automatic media backups, you will further optimize dataflow and minimize opportunistic attacks and data breaches.

To Summarize…

As managers of high value assets, Flight Department Managers are charged with taking the long-view, staying aware of the trends and new developments in jet connectivity that can add value to the unique experience of flying high, fast and direct to the required destination. Complementing the flight experience with the newest technologies becomes an opportunity to maximize the office-inthe-sky, and brings about the full potential for the work, leisure and entertainment capability that our principals expect. It’s our responsibility to use industry publications, conventions, internet discussion groups and vendor presentations to stay in-theknow about the new trends, and guide our aircraft owners in making the best decisions for their aircraft.

he aircraft has a lot of things going for it: Backing from one of the giants of global engineering and manufacturing; impressive figures for speed and economy; a distinctive and novel shape that gives it undoubted ramp-appeal. But the real test of the success of Honda Aircraft Company’s HA-420 HondaJet will come in its sales and use. Japanese parent Honda sunk a reported $2bn into creating this jet from scratch, and it has a lot to live up to. Born out of one person’s inspiration and drive, it is intended to appeal to the enthusiast flyer just as much as its economy, serviceability and speed are supposed to make it impossible to ignore for corporate flight departments and charter operators seeking an efficient business tool. Michimasa Fujino, Chief Executive of the Honda Aircraft Company, who scribbled the outline of the aircraft on a scrap of paper in the middle of the night 20 years ago, sums it up. “I wanted the aircraft to have the feel of a sports car,” adding that it also had to embody the cutting-edge technology, safety and efficiency that Honda cars stand for. The aircraft he produced assembles a number of neat and efficient touches. One is the most distinctive aspect of the aircraft - the engines mounted on pylons over the wings. Another is the natural laminar-flow nose and wings. And a third is the high level of assistance for the pilot in the cockpit. The placement of the engines over the wings is remarkably faithful to Fujino’s sketch of two decades ago. The aim was to eliminate aerodynamic compromises forced by placing the engines on the tail, give more space to passengers and baggage in the fuselage, and cut down on noise and vibration in the cabin. 

HondaJet: The Passenger’s View

Before I had the chance to take the controls of the aircraft I made a couple of trips as a passenger. The cabin, well-lit by big windows that are electronically dimmable, has a quietly luxurious feel. It is spacious, too – the standard layout of a club-four gives plenty of room for legs, and there is a fifth, sidewayfacing seat available as an option across from the door. The toilet compartment is also a healthy size, as well as being very private and naturally lit by a couple of strategic skylights. There’s an option for a sink with running water, and another for external servicing of the lavatory, but both add weight. Meanwhile the baggage area in the tail is a vast 57 cu.ft., while another locker in the nose can accommodate 9 cu.ft. of luggage.

Courses start with classroom training on the very capable Garmin avionics system and then lead into the Level-D fullmotion simulator – which is about as realistic as you can get without actually becoming airborne.  Michimasa Fujino, CEO, Honda Aircraft Company

HondaJet: The Trainee’s View

Before I climbed behind the HondaJet’s buttonbedecked yoke, I got a taste of the training that is offered to buyers. As is usual, pilot training for the single-pilot-certified HA-420 jet is included in the aircraft’s price of roughly $5m, with normal options.

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T FLIGHT REVIEW

HondaJet: The Pilot’s View

Climbing into the real aircraft later, there was one early disappointment: For all its many novel features, and despite its spacious cabin, getting into the left-hand seat still involves a leg-aloft step across the central console between the seats. But once I was situated in front of the three huge 14.1 inch screens that are the windows into the customized Garmin 3000 system, the HondaJet was very inviting… Checklists are on-screen, and a yoke-mounted control helps scroll through them. Two 5.7 inch touch screens are the main input devices for the system, and their placing low and central means they are not far from either pilot. The underlying logic is for the avionics to handle what can be automated. For example, pressurization is fully automatic, with the end pressure determined by the planned destination’s elevation. Likewise, external lights come on when it’s dark outside. That same logic means the dials, switches and controls that don’t need attention don’t ask for it – but show with a change of colour any abnormal state that does demand a response. It’s a dark cockpit concept that cars have also been moving toward. Starting the two turbofans is even easier than starting an engine in a modern automobile – push the button helpfully labelled ‘start’ and let the electronics monitor the process and stop it if there is anything amiss. I had noticed it in the back cabin earlier, but this jet is quiet. It’s the quietest in its class, according to Fujino. That, like the low cabin altitude of 8,000ft at its ceiling of 43,000ft will mean less stressful travel. 78

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

It didn’t take long to get to altitude, either. The 2,050 lbf from each of the GE-Honda HF120 engines gave us a brisk roll and take-off, and a maximum rate of climb of about 4,000ft per minute - so when air traffic control plays ball, there is little need to spend time at lower altitudes where the aircraft’s economy advantage is wasted. According to Honda, the jet is up to 17% more fuel efficient than its light jet rivals. Since most pilots will use it most of the time, I flew through the autopilot – which is easy to use, but hugely sophisticated. There’s even a default-on mode that, in the event of sudden decompression at altitude, will bring the jet (and its presumably unconscious occupants) down to a level at which they would come around and be

able to take back control. Nevertheless, I can’t imagine anyone who buys something billed as ‘an aerial sports car’ (complete with a class-leading 422 knot maximum cruise speed) not wanting to fly it themselves – so I extended a thumb to switch off the autopilot. Fujino got it right: The HondaJet is crisp and precise, with a satisfying response from the twin turbofans and a pleasing harmony between the controls. Even with Georgethe-autopilot taking a rest there are still layers of protection – a stick shaker and a stick pusher protect against stall. On top of that there are visual and aural cues provided by the avionics to warn of over-speed and under-speed. Autothrottles are not an option but are not missed.

Synthetic Vision, which is an option, also helps enormously when flying the HondaJet manually. The flight path marker shows you where you are going to be long before you actually get there. Returning to land, speed brakes can be extended to help overcome the aerodynamic slipperiness that Fujino worked so hard to incorporate in the design. But one by-product of the relatively small, low-drag wing is higher landing speeds than the jet’s closest – and slightly slower – rivals (the Embraer Phenom 100EV and Cessna Citation M2). It’s not a huge margin, but in normal conditions the HondaJet needs a distance of up to 3,000ft to land, compared with about 2,600ft for the M2 and less than 2,500ft for the Phenom 100EV.

HondaJet: A Great Start

The market continues to be difficult for private jets, and especially those at the light end. But as a measure of its success, Honda delivered 30 jets in the first three quarters of 2017 (against 25 Citation M2s and 11 Phenom 100s). Fujino, while refusing to discuss plans for further models, points to the fact that the size of the hangars at Greensboro are far bigger than needed for the height of the HA-420. And it is not the way of parent Honda to tread water. For the moment, however, the Greensboro company is concentrating on ramping up production of its first product – aiming to build 100 a year. If there is a pause, perhaps Fujino can use it to fulfil another long-held aim – learning to fly. T More information from www.hondajet.com Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

How to Enhance Flight Operations Effectively

It’s easy to see the benefits of new technology within the Flight Department, but Mario Pierobon asks what are the implementation trade-offs?

T

he aviation industry epitomizes the world of fast technological development. We’ve seen in increasing pace of change over recent years, and there’s plenty more to come, including supersonic travel, all-weather operations, civil tilt-rotor designs and electric aircraft. Yet one shouldn’t overlook the more subtle technological advances. While they may not be revolutionizing air transportation in quite the same way as some spectacular developments, they nevertheless provide for incremental improvements in the line environment that increase operational efficiencies within the Flight Department. In recent years the Business Aviation industry has embraced Performance Based Navigation (PBN), the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) and augmented 80

reality devices (in training environments, for example). And that list doesn’t begin to scratch the surface. The question naturally asks how a corporate flight department should approach new technology in training and in the line environment. Technology can be a powerful tool, but it can also be ‘dehumanising’ at times. What are the trade-offs corporate flight department managers should make in order to arrive at the best possible decisions regarding the implementation of technological upgrades?

What Are the Benefits?

The first question those charged with implementation within the Flight Department should ask is how a particular technology can help current operations. The question is not normally difficult to answer, since the benefit is generally the first thing considered when contemplating a technological upgrade. An EFB, for example, will reduce the weight of the documentation carried on-board the aircraft, as well as the effort required to ensure the documentation is current. A Night Vision

“ It is exactly this ‘social cost’, however, that can be easiest to under-estimate in the analysis.”

Imaging System (NVIS) will probably be considered only if night operations are a regular requirement, thus creating the need to improve visibility during those operations. While it might be straightforward, benefits still need to be clarified and documented because they must be weighed against the downsides of technology, which require more effort to analyse.

What Are the Downsides?

Dealing with the downsides is naturally more difficult. When it comes to technology, people tend to identify how implication could simplify their lives but are slower to recognize how the technology could actually be a complication. Every situation is different. To assess the downsides, following are some important questions: • How much does it cost? • How often will it be used? • What is the ‘social’ cost? Cost and frequency of use are relatively simple to determine. When considering the EFB, for example, one might want to evaluate the implementation costs – especially in terms of manpower – needed in order to get the applicable regulatory approval. Another cost to consider is that every now and then, as hardware solutions keep evolving, the actual EFB tablets will need to be replaced with newer ones. The frequency of use is also important. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Clearly nobody wants to commit to expensive equipment simply because it is the ‘in-vogue’ technology for the flight deck at the time and is unlikely to be used. It is exactly this ‘social cost’, however, that can be easiest to under-estimate in the analysis. Let’s consider the example of Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS). At this time, FRMS’ are developing some critical mass, creating the potential for databases to be built from employees’ health-related information gathered through wearable activity tracking devices. While a wealth of data could be derived from such an initiative within the Flight Department, thought must be given to personal data protection of staff. While this scenario represents an extreme example, even something simple such as establishing a work-group on WhatsApp may have wider implications, and employees could effectively remain on-duty 24-hours a day, feeling compelled to be ‘online’ even during their rest time if adequate guidelines were not established first.

Getting the Balance

It is only when a thorough list of advantages and disadvantages is compiled that good decisions can be made. The best decisions require adequate effort to understand the pros and cons. As the technological revolution continues to advance, so does the need for detailed assessment of what could help or hinder your Flight Department operations. T

FLIGHT DEPARTMENT T RETAIL PRICE GUIDE

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-Long-Range 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. 82

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

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 1998 through Winter 2017. Each reporting point represents the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Falcon 900LX values reported in the Winter 2017 edition of the Bluebook show $23.0m for a 2013 model, $22.0m 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 the reader to determine the best value aircraft for consideration. Note: We have included 42 aircraft models in the following Large Cabin average price guide, and for additional assistance, Conklin & de Decker’s Performance and Specifications data for  these models can be referred to, beginning on page 86

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 opposite, 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

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

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

Balanced Field Length BFL is the distance obtained by determining the decision speed (V1) at which the take-off distance and the accelerate-stop distance are equal (fixed-wing multi-engine aircraft only). This is based on four passengers and maximum fuel on board (turbine aircraft). For single-engine and all piston fixed-wing aircraft, this distance represents the take-off field length at Maximum Take-off Weight (MTOW). Landing Distance (Factored) For fixed-wing turbine aircraft, landing distance is computed using FAR 121 criteria. This takes the landing distance from 50/35 feet (depends on certification criteria) and multiplies that by a factor of 1.667. No credit is given for thrust reversers. Configuration is with four passengers and NBAA IFR Fuel Reserve on board. For fixed-wing piston aircraft, this figure is the landing distance over a 50 foot obstacle. Rate of Climb (Ft/Min) The rate of climb, given in feet per minute, is for all engines operating, at MTOW, ISA conditions. One Engine Out rate of climb is for one engine inoperative rate of climb at MTOW, ISA. Cruise Speed (Knots True Air Speed - KTAS) Max Cruise Speed - is the maximum cruise speed at maximum continuous power. This may also be commonly referred to as High Speed Cruise. Normal cruise speed is the recommended cruise speed established by the manufacturer. This speed may also be the same as Maximum Cruise Speed. Long Range Cruise is the manufacturer’s recommended cruise speed for maximum range. Engines The number of engines, manufacturer and model are shown. Aircraft Index see Page 137

ver the following paragraphs, we’ll consider the productivity parameters of payload, range, speed and cabin size, and consider current market values in relation to the Global 5000 and Falcon 7X. First, though, let’s consider the background of the Global 5000… The Global 5000 offers operators the advantage of short take-off and landing performance, and traces its roots to the Global Express which became the second Ultra-Long-Range and Large Cabin business jet to enter the market in the late 1990s. The Global 5000 is a derivative, based on the Global Express. It incorporates a 32 inch reduction in forward fuselage length and 1,200nm reduction in maximum range, and made its maiden flight in March 2003 with certification awarded in October 2004. Three subsequent business jets have followed the Global 5000, including the Global 6000 (already in service), and the in-development Global 7000 and Global 8000 Ultra-Long-Range business jets.

Global 5000 Fleet Dynamics

Since its entry into service, 221 Global 5000s have been delivered globally, with 218 in operation today. Of those, 204 are wholly-owned, one is in shared ownership, and 13 are in fractional ownership. By continent, North America has the largest percentage of in-operation Global 5000s (45%), followed by Europe (28%) and Asia (25%), accounting for a combined 97% of the world’s Global 5000 fleet. A relatively high 40% of the 218 Global 5000s currently in operation are in fleet ownership. The largest fleet operator (US-based NetJets) owns 12 units. Interestingly, 13% of the Bombardier Global 5000 fleet are leased. As of November 2017, the Global 5000 market is comprised of 70% new vs. 30% used. The percentage ‘For Sale’ on the used jet market is 8.3%, the majority of which are under an exclusive broker agreement. Average days on the market currently stands as 375 days, according to JETNET.

As mentioned in past articles, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. According to data sourced from Conklin & de Decker (presented in Table A, top left), the Global 5000 ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ (2,930 lbs) is more than that offered by the Falcon 7X (1,660 lbs).

Cabin Cross-Section Views

Global 5000

Payload & Range

Chart A (left) shows a cabin cross-section comparison with the Global 5000 offering more width (8.17ft) than the Falcon 7X (7.70ft). However, cabin height dimensions are almost the same, with both business jets offering a flat floor design. Interior height is measured at the center of the cross section, while the width dimensions can be measured from the widest part of the cabin or at floor level. For the purpose of this comparison we provide the measurement taken from the widest part of the cabin (i.e. maximum interior width). Cabin length, meanwhile, can be measured in three ways, each yielding differing cabin volumes. (For example, the Main Seating measurement would include all passenger seats but not the lavatory areas.) Table B (left), sourced from B&CA, shows that the Global 5000 has the greater interior cabin length compared to the Falcon 7X based on the ‘main seating’ area and ‘net’ measurement, but not in terms of ‘gross’ measurement. When comparing aircraft cabins, a key cabin volume measurement is that of personal space. As an example, the personal space per passenger  Aircraft Index see Page 137

calculated for the Global 5000 is 472cu.ft with four passengers and 236cu.ft with eight passengers, per data from M2 Performance Group. Prospective buyers are advised to measure the aircraft themselves or consult with interior experts to provide fair comparisons. Due diligence from a prospective owner/operator is required to understand comparative aircraft interior measurements.

Range Comparison

As depicted by Chart B (right), using Teterboro, New Jersey as the origin point the Global 5000 (5,475nm) offers less range coverage than the Falcon 7X (5,760nm). Each business jet’s range covers all of North America, South America, Europe, and parts of Russia and Africa. Note: For jets and turboprops, ‘Four Passengers with Available Fuel’ represents the maximum IFR range of the aircraft at Long-Range Cruise with four passenger seats occupied.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

www.AVBUYER.com

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are often depreciable for income tax purposes under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Under MACRS, taxpayers are allowed to accelerate the depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first few years of the applicable recovery period (see Table D, above left). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be depreciated, and if so, the correct depreciation method and recovery period that should be utilized. For example, aircraft used in charter service (i.e. Part 135) are normally depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year recovery period or under ADS using a twelve-year recovery period. Aircraft used for qualified business purposes, such as Part 91 business use flights, are generally depreciated under MACRS over a period of five years or by using ADS with a sixyear recovery period.

The current used jet market for the Bombardier Global 5000 shows a total of 18 jets ‘For Sale’ with two displaying ask prices ranging from $13.8m to $14.95m. We also reviewed the used Dassault Falcon 7X jet market (22 currently for sale) with five displaying ask prices that range from $17.9m to $24.9m. According to Vref, a 2007 model Global 5000 value (as a percentage of the New Retail price) has declined to 35% of what it cost new, while the Falcon 7X has retained slightly more of its 2007 new value at 41%. 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.

Maximum Scheduled Maintenance Equity

As offered by Asset Insight LLC, Chart D (above right) depicts the Maximum Maintenance Equity for the Bombardier Global 5000, based on its age. Note: • The Maximum Maintenance Equity figure was achieved the day the aircraft came off the production line (since it had not accumulated any utilization toward any maintenance events); • The percent of the Maximum Maintenance Equity that an average aircraft will have available based on its age, assumes: a) Average annual utilization of 470 Flight Hours; and b) All maintenance is completed when due.

Productivity Comparisons

The points in Chart E (right) are centered on the same aircraft. Pricing used in the vertical axis is as published in the Vref Pricing Guide. The productivity index requires further discussion in that the factors used can be somewhat arbitrary. Productivity can be defined (and it is here) as the multiple of three factors: 1.

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 Global 5000 displays a high level of productivity. Both business jets are offered at the same new price. While the Bombardier Global 5000 offers greater cabin volume and ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’, it offers less range and a higher variable hourly cost compared to the Falcon 7X business jet. Operators will need to weigh up their mission requirements very precisely when picking which option is the best for them. www.AVBUYER.com

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business aircraft operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance, and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, too, however. The Global 5000 continues to be a popular jet model today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Global 5000 will continue to do well in the used jet market for the foreseeable future. Of course, if the Global 5000 is not outfitted with ADS-B Out, it cannot be placed in operation after December 31, 2019, adding a further buying consideration to the equation.

Which Business Aviation Ownership Option? While few companies and entrepreneurs doubt the value of business aircraft, many ask the best way to engage in Business Aviation. David Wyndham provides answers on the options…

B

usiness has never been more competitive. One thing remains essentially unchanged, however - the need to communicate in order to achieve company goals. Phone calls, emails or video conferences - none are as effective as the in-person meeting.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – January 2018

In-person meetings are productive, but the time needed to travel to and from these meetings can take its toll on even the most hearty businessperson. First is the time spent away from the office. Many major airports have lengthy waits at security lines during periods of peak travel. Airline schedules are designed to serve the herd, not the individual. Flight delays can cause connecting flights to be missed. A simple two-hour meeting half-way across the country can require two-day’s travel. A half-day meeting across the globe, with the effects of jet lag, can take a week or more out of a productive schedule.

“Eight people missing one eight-hour day of work because of travel considerations costs 64-person hours. Such loss of productivity with two groups over one year can cost about 6,400 person-hours!”

If you are reading this, you already know there is a better way: Business Aviation. Business Aviation offers convenience, speed, security and flexibility. The value of a senior leader’s time, or a group of employees traveling and working together can easily outweigh the costs of the travel. Along with the schedule flexibility of using business aircraft, however, comes the flexibility to choose between the many forms of Business Aviation—whether occasional charter, contract charter, card program, specialized card/club programs, fractional ownership, timesharing between flight departments, joint ownership or the services of a full-blown in-house flight department dedicated to the company or entrepreneur. This series of articles will help determine what form(s) of Business Aviation can satisfy your travel needs. No one form is superior to the others, and all have their strengths.

Where to Start

First consider your travel needs. Where do you travel, with how many people and how often? To illustrate, I had one client who needed to travel from Houston, Texas to Elko, Nevada. At a minimum the trip required two overnights as the airline required a full day for Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

travel each way because of connecting stops. A business aircraft can make the trip out and back in one day. Another client was looking at monthly trips from their US headquarters to Asia with six people. The airline schedule was sufficiently frequent that scheduling the trip was not onerous. But the travelers needed privacy to discuss business during the long flight and when appropriate to obtain rest. With six people, a business aircraft enabled conditions for both work and rest. A third client has corporate offices in the Southern US and in the Northeast US. The company has teams of employees traveling between these locations every week. A typical trip comprises eight people flying north and a different group of eight flying south. As neither corporate office is near a major hub airline airport, layovers and delays using the Scheduled Airlines added at least one, sometimes two days to the travel. Eight people missing one eight-hour day of work because of travel considerations costs 64-person hours. Such loss of productivity with two groups over one year can cost about 6,400 person-hours! Another important step in the travel analysis is to identify your pain points: 

“Many other benefits accrue to companies that use Business Aviation.” • •

What destinations are difficult in terms of flight availability or long travel days? How much ground travel is there between the airline airport and your eventual destination?

There are over 5,500 General Aviation airports suitable to the typical business aircraft in the US alone. In many cases, there is an airport close by where you need to go. Consider how many people travel on these trips using the airlines. • How many people would travel on these trips if the time for travel were reduced? • What if sales and support teams could be on the client visit? Determine if you need space to work while travelling on the flight. • Are there confidential conversations that can be/should be accomplished? • How important or necessary is it to be able to change the travel schedule at the last minute? • How productive would it be to have a meeting run longer without the worry of a missed flight? Ultimately, the business aircraft operates on your schedule.

Security and Peace of Mind

Are you or someone on your team a nervous flier? Business Aviation has safety rules and best practices that are the equal to anything the airlines follow. The safety record of multi-engine business jets flown by a two-person salaried crew is essentially identical to that of the Schedule Airlines. Some Business Aviation options allow you to have a dedicated crew. There can be a great comfort in knowing the first names of your pilots. Many other benefits accrue to companies that use Business Aviation. For example, baggage and valuable equipment are unlikely to be mishandled or lost on a business aircraft. Senior executives under a mandated security program regarding travel find business aircraft particularly secure. What about bringing in clients and prospects to visit your facilities? Such outreach enables customers to understand your firm better and to know how much you value their use of time.

When is Right to Transition Jets? Changing travel needs, fresh availability of cash to invest and current depreciable basis are all driving factors, but when is the right time to transition aircraft? Jet Tolbert discusses…

ow do you track the driving factors behind a decision to change business jets? How do you prepare to move up or down in aircraft size without over-thinking the issue or cancelling trips due to inadequate planning? Following we’ll set out some practical pointers…

H

Tell Tale Sign #1: Incompatible Missions

Missions change for multiple reasons. Perhaps your company’s market area has grown, or your key executives have moved. Labor availability 104

may prompt the relocation of a factory or distribution center. Various factors can change the Flight Department’s requirement for range, runway performance and speed from their aircraft. Let’s consider the example of a company acquiring a new plant in a remote location. The convenient airport closest to that plant offers a 4,000ft runway at 1,000ft elevation that would restrict the range of many business jets on departure (including the one currently being operated by the Flight Department). It could

even require some aircraft to land at airports that are not as convenient to access the new plant. If that becomes necessary, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to transition to a new aircraft. Another example might be the company’s recent growth into international markets, necessitating more regular long-range, transoceanic travel. Those trips may be beyond the capability of the company jet, requiring the purchase of something more capable. While selecting an alternative aircraft, operators Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

should bear in mind the runway requirements at the home base and those at the regular international destinations.

Tell Tale Sign #2: Large Upgrade Investment

It may be that the current aircraft was the best choice with the budget available a few years ago. When purchased it was the budget-buy; a stripped-down base model. Circumstances change. If your company now has cash available to upgrade the  www.AVBUYER.com

aircraft, the inclination may be to invest in the current jet with performance and avionics enhancements as well as paint and interior upgrades. This path may indeed be the best option, ultimately, but it is still wise to consider all options, including whether it could be more cost effective to transition to a different aircraft. The current needs of the Flight Department should be evaluated with consideration to all possible options: no change, the current aircraft with the required upgrades, and another aircraft that may be a suitable replacement. The upgrade costs may not have gone down much from when you purchased the current airplane, compared to the price of a larger, more capable aircraft that was previously out of budget. (In the case of trading-up, one should keep in mind that while a buyer of your current aircraft will want it clean and presentable, often they will be keen to customize it to their own tastes.)

Tell Tale Sign #3: Tax Benefits

The upgrade options mentioned above might not be an instant expense since they may be depreciable. A closer look at your circumstances should reveal whether upgrading your current aircraft or purchasing a different aircraft is the most cost-effective decision. On the subject of taxes, an aircraft that is nearly depreciated to zero is certainly a motivating factor. As 2017 drew to a close, questions regarding 1031 exchange practices were being debated by the US Congress. It seems, however, that there will be ways to increase the depreciable basis through improvements and possibly traditional aircraft trades. The right aircraft broker will help you sort out whatever law results from tax reform.

Stay Ahead of the Game

Be aware of upcoming changes to the travel needs of your company before they are implemented. Such forethought will result in fewer mishaps like cancelled flights or inconvenient fuel stops that cause delays or other surprises. In general, if there is a long-term change being considered (such as adding new destinations or upgrading and improving the aircraft), the owner is well-served to contact his or her aircraft sales/acquisitions professional and work with the Flight Department or management company to consider all options thoroughly. Keep in mind that each party may have their own agenda. Aircraft dealer/brokers on the seller’s side will want to make you the proud owner of an aircraft in their inventory, while a management company that charters or operates your jet will want you to operate the airplane that 106

will produce higher charter revenue or fits their operational niche. Your Flight Department may be thinking of the aircraft they’d enjoy flying/operating the most. By talking with all parties on your acquisition team, you will have a better understanding of why each wants you to move in a certain direction, and you will have a more rounded view to ensure that your company’s needs are met. With thorough analysis, the right aircraft will be fueled and ready to move your business forward. T www.AVBUYER.com

Falcon 5X Program Ends, New Program Announced Dassault Aviation initiated the termination process of the Silvercrest

T

he delivery of compliant Silvercrest engines was originally planned for the end of 2013 in accordance with the Falcon 5X flight test schedule, however Safran met recurrent technical issues during the program development. Consequently, Dassault postponed entry into service of the Falcon 5X from 2017 to 2020, leading to customer concerns and order cancellations. Equipped with a preliminary version of the engine, not compliant with the specifications, the Falcon 5X performed its maiden flight on July 5, 2017, and started a preliminary flight test campaign, limited by engine capacity. The Falcon 5X’s flight behaviour met all expectations. In the fall of 2017, Safran experienced issues with the high pressure compressor and informed Dassault Aviation of an additional delay and new performance 110

shortfall, making the 2020 entry into service of the aircraft impossible. Considering the magnitude of the risks involved both on the technical and schedule aspects of the Silvercrest program, Dassault Aviation initiated the termination process of the Silvercrest contract leading to the end of the Falcon 5X program and plans to start negotiations with Safran. “There is still a strong market need for a brand new Long Range aircraft with a Very Large Cabin”, Dassault’s Eric Trappier explained. “So I have decided to launch a new Falcon project powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, featuring the same cross-section as the Falcon 5X, a range of 5,500nm, and scheduled to enter into service in 2022.” More information from www.dassaultfalcon.com www.AVBUYER.com

Helicopters Get Honeywell High-Speed Connectivity

Jet Aviation, together with its joint venture partner the Al Mulla Business Group, celebrated the opening of its new FBO facility in the shared terminal at Dubai South during the 2017 Dubai Airshow. As business aviation traffic is increasingly channeled through DWC, the upscale 600-square meter FBO in the shared VIP terminal adds considerable capacity for Jet Aviation to meet customer requirements now and into the future. The new state-ofthe-art facility features three customer lounges, a conference room, crew lounge and operations center, two prayer rooms and shower facilities. “Since opening in 2005, we have handled more than 25,000 aircraft in Dubai and were voted Best FBO in the Middle East & Africa in Professional Pilot magazine for the 7th time this year,” said Stefan Benz, SVP Regional Operations, EMEA & Asia”. www.jetaviation.com

Honeywell has been awarded FAA certification to install its Aspire 200 satellite communications hardware on the Bell 429, Airbus Helicopters AS350 and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk airframes. The Aspire 200 system, combined with the High-Data Rate (HDR) software package, brings highbandwidth connectivity to the helicopter environment for the first time while allowing the pilot or operator to mitigate any signal connectivity issues. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approvals for those helicopters are also underway.
