Editorial Contributor (USA Office) Dave Higdon Dave@avbuyer.com

How Does one Define Value?

A

n often discussed subject today is aircraft value. How have some aircraft retained their value better than others? What exactly qualifies a seller’s valuation of their aircraft? Unlike price, an aircraft’s value is primarily defined by the beholder who might find one aircraft’s interior color more appealing than another, thus valuing one aircraft over another. But what if the asset being valued is unique? Imagine appraising a Sopwith Camel, the most famous British fighter airplane of WWI. The Camel shot down more enemy aircraft than any other Allied fighter. It also challenged pilots to start its engine without starting an engine fire in the process. Does one value this asset by the number of recorded aerial victories, or the number of engine starts it survived? Consider the de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito, a British twin-engine WWII aircraft constructed almost entirely of wood. Of the 7,781 that were built, few survive – perhaps due to the lack of a maintenance program. (Most were expected to survive only a handful of missions.) Does one value a museum piece by virtue of its sheer existence? And how about a Pitcairn PA-8, a biplane designed to achieve a cruise speed exceeding 160 knots while carrying over 2,000lbs of mail? Back in its day, a valuation could take its incomeproducing capability into account. One was owned by Steve McQueen for a number of years and now sits in a museum. What sort of value can that generate, and for whom? Some may recall the story of a California man who tied 42 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair that carried him to an altitude of 16,000ft (see www.markbarry.com). That lawn chair is about to be donated to the Smithsonian Institute. Lawn chairs can be purchased for under $20 today, but what is the ‘value’ of the chair that climbed to 16,000 feet carrying a passenger who lived to talk about it?

Today’s Value Reality

I have yet to meet a business aircraft owner who did not believe their aircraft was uniquely qualified to attain the value they had in mind. To an appraiser, the value of any asset is based on what ‘may be reasonably expected in an exchange between a willing buyer and willing

seller, neither under any compulsion to buy or sell’. Therefore, current market pricing will always be the primary valuation driver. While prices in today’s used aircraft marketplace appear to be stabilizing, final transaction values are still unlikely to match many sellers’ expectations. The wise seller will quickly recognize this and be prepared to work with a serious buyer to negotiate a realistic sale price.

Worth a Laugh

My wife’s uncle, Joe Max, was employed by Lockheed Martin as an engineer, where he spent a few years at the company’s California skunk works. Numerous amazing aircraft were designed at that facility, including the Lockheed Jetstar. The Engineering Department was located on the second story of a hangar, and one Friday afternoon, as engineers filed down the stairs to head home, some faint beating noises were heard emanating from the hangar floor. While most folks paid no attention, Joe and a colleague sought out the source. They discovered a number of workers locked inside a Jetstar fuselage being used for pressurization testing. Since this test cell could only be opened from the outside, these souls would have spent the weekend in that fuselage had they not been rescued… I recently saw a Jetstar parked on a ramp with its door closed and began to chuckle. As though to highlight the divergence in opinions over aircraft valuation today, a friend followed my gaze and said: “there’s a worthless piece of junk”. Really? Considering its history, I thought it was at least worth a laugh.

Business Aviation Market Overview In the face of mounting evidence, there is a growing sense that these interesting times are changing – and things are finally looking up for Business Aviation. The ‘facts’ (whatever they are anymore) seem compelling. Rollie Vincent explains… t a more macro-level, business aircraft utilization levels are clearly trending upwards. People are finally flying more sectors and more hours. They are booking charter flights. They are once again using business and private aircraft for what they were designed to do (to be flown, not stored in a hangar and kept polished). Year-over-Year (YoY), the rates of increase in business aircraft utilization are highest in Europe, up about 6-7% according to some of the latest readings, with the US up by a more modest, but still respectable 3-4%. In 2017, the European economy surged back to life, beating almost all pundit forecasts by expanding at an estimated 2.4%, with much the same expected in the latest 2018 outlook. Business and consumer confidence levels are elevated in both the Euro Area and the US, supported by a spirited cocktail of lower unemployment, lower corporate and personal

income taxes (US), 100% bonus depreciation for new and used aircraft (US), higher real wages and continuing equity market strength. Despite an early February 2018 correction of more than 10% in the Dow Jones Industrial Average that took some by surprise, the stock market remains a good place for investors to park their cash. At the time of print, more than half of the correction had dissolved, with exchanges returning to previously unheard-of levels of market capitalization. Many an airplane salesperson is no doubt dreaming of the days when at least some of that cash will be once again put towards a new and/or larger aircraft. With a flood of repatriated corporate profits expected to come on-shore into US corporate coffers, beginning Q1 2018 and a bevy of shiny, newly certified business jets soon landing at an airport near you, things are definitely shaping-up for better times ahead for the Business Aviation industry. continued on page 18  Aircraft Index see Page 145

Chart A Used Business Jet Inventory and Used Whole Retail Transations - Worldwide (Source: JETNET)

Used Whole Retail Transactions (Sale and Lease) Business Jet Inventory ‘For Sale’ - Dec. 31

Used Jet Transactions

In the world of used business jet transactions, 2017 looks like it was the best-ever year for sales volumes, with JETNET recording 2,668 whole retail sales or leases during the year (Chart A). The ‘For Sale’ inventory dipped just below 10% of the in-service fleet at the end of 2017, with 2,143 jets listed in the JETNET database. Tellingly, only 116 jets on the market at press time were delivered new in the last five years, representing less than 6% of the available inventory. With almost 80% of the jets listed ‘For Sale’ of a more ‘Classic’ status (i.e. older than 20 years), it is clear that this market has been rather cleanly picked over by savvy buyers (who, to their credit, have probably been reading AvBuyer).

New Jet Stimulation

With innovative new products expected to enter into service this year, we expect to see buyers pulling out their wallets with greater frequency in conjunction with FAA/EASA certification announcements. This will help bolster new aircraft order books at the OEMs, which would be a welcome development as the investment payback period begins. With a backlog representing the initial three years of production, Pilatus expects to deliver 23 new PC-24 light jets as it prepares to ramp up production to a rate of four, perhaps five airplanes per month. This is contingent on expanding its widespread sales success with the PC-12 into wider

applications, including additional corporate flight departments, charter and fractional programs, and special mission applications. Textron, meanwhile, will soon receive certification for the Super-Mid-size Longitude, extending the Citation family (already the world’s largest fleet) and Textron Aviation’s top-line revenues upwards. And Gulfstream’s innovative G500 and G600 Large-Cabin jets are expected to certify in 2018, bringing new levels of performance, technology, quality, comfort and style to the market. Bombardier’s much-anticipated Global 7000 is the company’s crown jewel investment. It’s an essentially all-new design that has already raised the bar in defining what a business jet can be. With the company seizing a four-zone cabin ‘high ground’ of cabin interiors, a wide-ranging group of stakeholders (customers, investors and the Bombardier leadership team) have high expectations for this jet.

Summary

Favourable macroeconomic fundamentals; tightened used jet markets; new products coming on-stream; triggered trade-ins and replenished, more attractive and gently-used inventory: Change – like Spring in the northern latitudes – is in the air. Aircraft buyers may not know it, but they can read it here – these are good times, and possibly the best of times, to be in the market. MI www.navigating360.com

Record Year-End Flight Activity Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI) released its Business Aviation Index for Q4 2017, tracking and reporting on the global flight activity and utilization of business jets, turboprops and helicopters worldwide, noting record year-end flight activity… The report calculates the average flight hours flown per aircraft on a monthly basis and organizes this data by region, industry and cabin type. This ultimately provides useful insights into the state of global economic conditions.

Flight Activity - North America According to ARGUS TRAQPak, January 2018 posted a Year-over-Year (YoY) increase over January 2017. Month-overMonth (MoM), activity finished modestly up over December 2017… Results by operational category were all positive with Part 135 activity producing the largest yearly gain, while Fractional and Part 91 activity both also recorded a rise. The aircraft categories were positive, too, with Turboprops posting the largest gain from January 2017.

Month-over-Month

January Business Aviation flight activity posted a modest increase over

Average flight hours increased 4.5% Year to Date (YTD) and 6.1% Year-over-Year (YoY). Average aircraft utilization of 28.65 hours for Q4 2017 represents the highest level during this period of any year on record. Significant Quarter-over-Quarter (QoQ) increases were reported in Central America, with a 9.3% increase in average flight hours; and Asia-Pacific (+8.6%). The largest QoQ decrease was seen in the Middle East, with a drop of 20% from Q3.

Next Month’s Forecast

TRAQPak analysts estimate a 3.8% YoY increase in overall flight activity in February 2018.

Key findings in the Q4 data include: •

December 2017, though results by operational category were mostly red for the month, with Part 91 posting the only monthly increase. Aircraft categories were somewhat mixed for the month, with Large jets posting the largest monthly increase over December, but Light and Mid-size jets recording decreases.

New forms of service which increase access to Business Aviation, and interest from the younger generation have led to a steady increase in traffic since November 2016, he added. Year-over-year (YoY) growth was strongest in March (+9%), July (+8.9%) and October 2017 (+8.9%). The Central Europe Functional Airspace Block enjoyed 12.2% growth in average daily flights, bolstered by Slovakia (+30.9%), Bosnia-Herzegovina (+25.7%) and the Czech Republic (+13.8%). Business Aviation traffic in the EU is

now on a par with 2006 levels, but has not yet returned to the historic peak level of 2007 and 2008. To help the growth continue, EBAA says it will focus on creating higher Business Aviation productivity by addressing issues such as access to airports and flight-time limitations during 2018.

According to AMSTAT’s new Aircraft Valuation Tool (AVT), the average estimated values for most business aircraft segments have risen since the start of Q4 2017… According to the AVT, three market segments have seen their average estimated values tick upwards since the start of Q4 2017. These included:

…“Keep Status Quo” for UK BizAv, Says EBAA

EBAA has also released a Brexit analysis report calling for negotiators in Brussels and London to preserve the current aviation relationship. Key topics of interest for the BizAv industry highlighted in the report include traffic rights, ownership and control, VAT/customs duty, and the future relationship with EASA. The report concludes that maintaining the existing relationship as far as possible is key to avoiding detrimental effects on the Business Aviation community. MI www.ebace.aero

The Heavy Jet segment: While the average estimated value dropped -3.5% over the last 12 months from $15.9m to $15.4m, since October 2017 this value is up +9.2%. The Super-Mid-size Jet segment: The average estimated value dropped -5.9% over the last 12 months, from $7m to $6.6m. Since September 2017, however, this value is up +19%. The Turboprop segment: The average estimated value dropped -6.7% over the last 12 months, from $2.4m to $2.2m. Since October 2017, this value is up +3.9%.

The Light Jet segment, meanwhile, has been more consistent with the average estimated value - up +8.2% in the last 12 months from $2.2m to $2.4m. “The increase in estimated values reflects recent increases in market demand and a tightening market with fewer options for buyers,” said Andrew Young, AMSTAT General Manager. “Changing market conditions further emphasise the need to access the real-time aircraft estimated values provided by the AMSTAT Aircraft Valuation Tool.” The new AMSTAT Aircraft Valuation Tool (AVT) calculates objective real-time estimated values for business aircraft. The AVT Quarterly Aircraft Values Report provides the market with the normalized average estimated value for business aircraft by segment over the last 12 months. continued on page 24 MI www.aso.com 

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE T MARKET INDICATORS

Used Jet, Turboprop and Helicopter Market Update JETNET released its December 2017 and 2017 Year-End results for the used business jet, turboprop, helicopter and commercial airliner markets. Most market sectors are showing lower inventory ‘For Sale’, with more fullsale transactions in 2017 compared to 2016. The Fleet ‘For Sale’ percentages for all used aircraft market sectors (with the exception of Piston Helicopters), were lower in the December comparisons. Business Jets and Commercial Turboprops were down the most. Across all market sectors, JETNET reported 9,071 full retail sale transactions for 2017, an increase of 334 (+3.8% more transactions) than the 8,737 reported in 2016. All aircraft segments were taking more time to sell (34 days) in 2017 compared to 2016, except for business jets, which sold after an average of 310 days on the market, the same as recorded in 2016.

‘For Sale’ Inventory The ‘For Sale’ inventory of business jets has decreased steadily from a high point in July 2009 (2,938) to 2,143 jets in December 2017. That’s a reduction from 17.7% of the in-service fleet ‘For Sale’ in July 2009 to 9.9% now. (The percentage has dropped from 11% in January 2017). As the market has finally broken below the 10% threshold of inventory ‘For Sale’, a period of transition is now in play, wherein the pendulum swings in favor of seller. Today the market of available aircraft continues to shrink, and still many models exhibit the soft pricing brought on by the decline in residual values that have dominated the postrecession years. Continued reduction of the ‘For Sale’ inventory in 2018 could lead to prices firming. The sage advice for buyers is to act now. The counsel of “just wait a few months—the price will come down” may not present itself as we break into the seller’s market environment. MI www.jetnet.com

New Business Jet Sales Equilibrium

Worldwide, new business jet deliveries have remained remarkably flat since 2011, notes aviation analyst Brian Foley. Averaging 692 units per year, there has been a standard deviation of just 25 units… “Statistically there’s a pretty good chance that 2017new jet results will also fall within that same narrow band, as will 2018”, Foley predicts. “This trend has not been random but rather a symphony of equal and opposite market forces holding deliveries in tight equilibrium. “Many believe that the market won’t have fully recovered from the financial crisis until deliveries return back to lofty 2008 levels. That peak should be considered an anomaly and not some recovery benchmark. Today’s market is in fact normalized and sustainable with supply equalling demand, meaning it’s technically been recovered for some time now.” Overseas the falling US Dollar has made business jets a better deal in local currency, and in Europe the stock markets have largely recovered to their pre-recession highs. Business jet utilization has also risen. Offsetting the positive forces in an equal and opposite direction has been weakness in emerging markets that were particularly hard-hit by falling commodity prices and in the case of China, austerity measures. These trends seem to have stabilized, and China’s mainland fleet began growing again last year according to AMSTAT. Foley believes the market will continue to be relatively flat for the next couple of years. After that, new airplane models come online that will stimulate the market.

Aircraft Finance to Increase?

New Global Jet Capital research, sourced from 144 Business Aviation professionals reveals 75 anticipate demand for private aviation finance will increase in 2018, and 56% think the volume of funding will also rise. Global Jet Capital also revealed that over 150 new business aircraft worth more than US$5bn could be delivered to Europe this year. Over 13% of those deliveries (equating to 21 aircraft) could go to the UK… When asked how attractive they think the European private aircraft market

currently is to finance companies, 34% described it as ‘very attractive’ and a further 43% as ‘attractive’. Only 21% think it is ‘unattractive’. Shawn Vick, CEO at Global Jet Capital, said “We expect to see the Business Aviation sector expand over the next few years. Factors behind this include economic growth in most of the major economies, a significant amount of investment and strong corporate earnings.”

Honeywell Sees Strengthening Bizjet Sales Honeywell projects an increase in new business jet sales in Q1 2018, with “acceleration as we get deeper into the year”, according to Thomas Szlosek, Sr. Vice President & CFO. Szlosek noted during a recent earnings call, “We expect organic sales to improve as production rates increase across most of our OEM customers”. The company's aerospace segment saw Q4 revenues increase 6% YoY (5% organically) to $3.9bn, despite “slow demand in business jets, as expected,” Szlosek noted. Honeywell's aftermarket business was “stronger than anticipated”, bolstered by higher-thanexpected business aircraft spares sales, he added. Looking ahead, demand for longterm service agreements from Business Aviation customers is expected to help drive another strong year in commercial aftermarket sales. Honeywell's market commentary builds on recent sentiments that the business jet segment might finally be gaining momentum. MI www.honeywell.com 

BizAv on The Rise in Asia

The consensus in the industry is that China’s Business Aviation market is starting to take off again, and that Southeast Asia is experiencing some good growth too, Asian Sky Group notes… “We are well past the austerity measures,” said Jeff Lowe, Managing Director, Asian Sky Group. “China was recovering in 2016 and I certainly expect that the annual figures for 2017, once released, will show healthy fleet growth for business jets in China.” Buyers in China still prefer the larger business jets, but they are becoming more astute, Lowe observes. “We’ve seen a shift in the buyers and their requirements. More and more of the requirements are driven by the corporate need versus (maybe if you go back five years) where it was more driven by personal needs.”

The next-fastest-growing markets were Australia and New Zealand, which added 24 and 16 helicopters last year, respectively. The fleet growth was small single digits but is still substantial considering Australia and New Zealand already have large installed fleets. Southeast Asia experienced very little growth last year, reflecting a lack of growth in the oil and gas industries. While everyone is still trying to determine whether the oil and gas segment is still comatose, it is clear there are good sales opportunities in the multi-mission and emergency medical services segment, the report indicates. MI www.asianskygroup.com

Civil Helicopters in Asia-Pacific

Meanwhile, the civil helicopter market in Southeast Asia has been flat in recent years, due to the fallout from the depressed oil and gas industry, but helicopter makers can take solace in the relatively resilient China and Australasian markets. The civil helicopter market in China is less skewed toward the oil and gas sector than Southeast Asia’s helicopter market, and last year posted the strongest fleet growth in the region, Asian Sky Research said in a preview of its 2017 YearEnd Civil Helicopter survey. Mr Lowe noted China’s civil helicopter market had a net gain last year of 79 helicopters, making it the fastest-growing sizable helicopter market in Asia-Pacific. Its fleet growth was 15%, he said. (Asian Sky calculates the number of turbinepowered helicopters and subtracts those that have left the fleet to determine the net gain).

In-Service Aircraft Values & Maintenance Condition

Asset Insight’s market analysis of January 30, 2018 covering 92 fixed-wing models and 1,699 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’ revealed some mixed, but generally favorable messages… While the total number of listed aircraft decreased, inventory figures for Medium Jets and Turboprops increased through units of above average asset quality.

Overall Ask Price for tracked models improved 0.5% in January, thanks to a 1.8% improvement by Large Jets.

When to Use Charter and Jet Cards

How do you know whether business aircraft charter is the right option for you? David Wyndham explores, highlighting some key questions to ask‌

or the infrequent or occasional Business Aviation user, it makes little sense to invest in a whole aircraft. A good option is to charter aircraft for your private travel needs on an ad-hoc basis. An advantage of chartering is the availability of many different types and capabilities of aircraft that are available to you, thus you are not restricted to

one type of jet or turboprop as would be the case for other ownership scenarios. For those who are new to Business Aviation I often recommend trying out various aircraft and not making any long-term commitments. If this is you, charter can be an excellent option. On-demand charter can be booked by contacting the provider directly or via a charter broker (who acts much like a travel agent). According to the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) there are over 2,100 FAA licensed aircraft charter operators in the US. These range from small single-engine piston aircraft

seek recommendations about a broker you are considering. A good broker familiar with the type of travel that you need will help you navigate and select the best options available, while also representing you and your trip needs to the charter operators. As a matter of interest, ARG/US (www.argus.aero) offers a charter broker certification program with broker ratings.

Understanding Your Charter Booking

Usually, Business Aviation charter is booked for the entire time the aircraft is in use. Let’s imagine a company books a charter flight requiring an aircraft to depart St. Louis to collect its executives in Springfield, Missouri. From there the executives are transported to Knoxville, Tennessee, and back to Springfield. Having returned the executives, the aircraft returns to its base in St. Louis. Often a charter user would have paid for the entirety of the journey, whether the aircraft is occupied or not. Some brokers and websites specialize in one-way (or emptyleg) trips, however, for which a user can take advantage of an aircraft returning from a specific place to a specific location empty. These flights can be booked for specific dates and times. operators to large turbine fleet operators. Legally, these operators must be licensed by the FAA to provide air charter services. You can find a handbook and online listing of licensed air charter operators worldwide at the Air Charter Guide. There are multiple other online sites catering to private air travel trips, too.

Tips for Using a Charter Broker

Given the many different options available, a charter broker may be a good option. At present, charter brokers are not formally certified, thus experience and skills can vary from broker to broker. You should ask about their experience in organizing the type of trip you require. You should also get references, and

Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

When do Jet Cards and Memberships Work Best?

If your travel needs are typically between 50-150 hours annually, jet cards and membership programs are a style of block charter that could be useful to you. You pre-purchase a block of hours at a guaranteed price. Most programs start at 25-hour cards. There are as many differences as there are programs: Some offer newer aircraft and one-way billing. Membership programs offer specific aircraft types and customization for individuals or businesses. Doug Goleman, a Forbes magazine contributor who specializes in goods and services catering to ultra-high-networth individuals, provides a comparison of jet card and membership programs covering all major, and many of the minor programs (https://privatejetcardcomparisons.com). 

Charter March18.qxp_Layout 1 21/02/2018 09:08 Page 3

OWNERSHIP T CHARTER

Those considering jet cards and membership programs should understand the restrictions. Following are some useful questions to answer: • Are the aircraft types or ages guaranteed? • What about minimum leg lengths? • How does the program bill for international travel, fuel cost surcharges and other fees look? • How long are the prices guaranteed for? • Are unused funds refundable? • Does the provider offer one-way pricing? • What is important to you?

Safety for Charter, Cards and Memberships

While safety is paramount in regard to charter, jet cards and membership programs, not all safety ‘ratings’ are equal. The top standard of safety involves passing, at the highest level, a

third-party safety audit. That audit also verifies that a formal ‘Safety Management System’ is in place. There are several entities that are involved in performing these audits. Given the number of charter certificate holders and card/membership programs, paying a third-party audit ought to be a required minimum for those who are truly interested in safety. You’ll find some useful links and resources for aviation safety below.

In Summary

Charter, jet cards and membership programs are gaining in popularity as younger buyers look for the service, not the ownership. For those seeking charter solutions to meet their travel needs, the above should help provoke some important questions to ask the broker, provider and oneself. For heavier users of air travel, there are other more suitable ownerships options that we will cover next month. T

Following are Some Resources for Aviation Safety Applicable to Business Aircraft Charter: •

Air Charter Safety Foundation: Organization setting safety standards and has an audit process (www.acsf.aero).

ARGUS: Performs independent safety audits of charter operators (argus.aero/product/charter-operator-ratings).

Wyvern: Performs independent safety audits of charter operators (www.wyvernltd.com/wingman-standard).

Additional standards and information on best practices for business aircraft and audit-based certifications can also be found at: International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), IS-BAO Safety Certification (www.ibac.org/is_bao).

hile understanding aircraft acquisition costs can be a complex business, the factors behind the operating costs are equally important to understand, and similarly multifaceted. Nevertheless, they must be analysed when piecing together a complete picture of aircraft ownership. What are the costs of ownership? How can they be offset?

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

What are the Costs of Aircraft Ownership?

When developing a spreadsheet for cost analysis it’s important to factor in the expected use for the jet. Once projected usage is fully understood the costs can be placed into two categories: The Fixed and Variable costs. Fixed costs include: • Crew salaries and fixed benefits • Hangar costs • Insurance • Staff training • Maintenance program • Projected maintenance, modernization and refurbishment, and • Aircraft management fee (if applicable)

Variable costs include: •

Reserves for unexpected maintenance

Crew expenses

How can Costs be Offset?

When considering the costs of aircraft ownership, don’t forget that an owner’s time is a non-monetary expense that can affect the profitability of the Flight Department. By ensuring your jet is fully operational, you will maximize the use of the owners’ time, thus helping offset the costs. Beyond maximizing the time of the aircraft owner, however, there are other ways to help balance the costs of operating your aircraft. Here, we provide two scenarios for two different levels of anticipated utilization… Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Scenario 1: Assuming the projected annual usage of the jet is for 150 hours, a buyer could consider a lease arrangement for upto 300 hours annually, either to a private user (under Part 91) or to a charter operator (under Part 135). Either arrangement could offset cost, though the charter option will most likely be the preferred option due to a charter operator’s ability to apply fleet rate discounts for fuel, training and insurance that would benefit the owner. In addition the charter lessee would offer more flexibility regarding the scheduling of their flights, helping secure the aircraft’s services when the owner needs to fly. Indeed, if the owner’s airplane is unavailable, oftentimes the charter-lessee might offer the owner the use of another aircraft from the charter company fleet. Keep in mind, however, that the increased utilization from chartering/leasing your aircraft will incur increased costs in 

the maintenance area over time, which must be factored into the overall cost equation. Scenario 2: Owners flying 300 hours annually might still consider a Part 91 dry lease arrangement or Part 135 lease to a charter company for a reduced 150 hours annually. In this scenario, the owner would probably need to compromise more over their own aircraft usage to make the aircraft available for revenue-making flights. The owner would need to weigh the reduced revenue from charter use against the cost of loss of usage. Be aware that with the higher owner usage, there will be fewer charter providers willing to charter the airplane because of the restricted usage for them. In addition, the cost offset will be less, but increased maintenance costs would still apply. In essence, the more hours you fly the less likely a solution chartering your aircraft will provide to offsetting the actual costs of ownership.

Where are the Operating Cost Savings?

The above considerations inevitably lead to additional questions, including: • • •

Do I have to pay a management fee, or can I just hire pilots to take care of the airplane? Will I need an on-staff mechanic? Can’t the pilot watch these items and help with the fuel savings?

While the above questions are often asked, I am rarely asked how to create a system of accountability. Though some smaller jets with simpler maintenance schedules can indeed be managed by the crew, the larger jets with more complex maintenance schedules will require a dedicated Director of Maintenance for scheduling and compliance, as well as a mechanic to perform regular light maintenance both pre- and post-flight. Under both of our revenue-generating scenarios above, a management company could potentially bring discounts for 50

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

crew training, fuel, insurance and hangar costs. Indeed, working with the right management company could include access to a Director of Maintenance, as well as mechanics on staff within your area who could provide routine maintenance. The management company would also hire and fire crew as well as audit their performance and aircraft operation. Thus, a management company brings benefits (even for an aircraft not placed into charter operation) that can exceed the monthly management fee.

Sourcing Crew or Management Company?

When considering the question of sourcing crew and/or a management company, first look at the projected annual usage to evaluate whether charter is a serious option. What are the budgetary expectations for usage with and without the charter revenue? Then analyse different pilots and operators, based not only on their fees but on the benefits they bring to help lower cost and increase dispatch reliability. As an example, let’s assume you identify a management company with several of your aircraft type based in the same area as you. This could be a benefit or a hindrance depending on your intended usage… You would potentially be placing your aircraft with an operator who has saturated the market demand for chartering your aircraft type, and would be selling your airplane at wholesale prices to charter brokers to keep it flying (thereby lowering your revenue). If you were to choose not to charter, however, but work with the same management company, you could enjoy the benefits of their mechanics and pilots who already understand your aircraft and can keep it operating smoothly at a lower cost than a Flight Department potentially would.

In Summary

The above should highlight that there are many decisions to be made when selecting your operational structure. The right adviser will help work through a daunting mountain of considerations to help select the best choices for you. T

Learjet 75

Learjet 70 & 75

Today, there are two Learjet models in production at Bombardier – the Learjet 75 (with a 2018 list price of $13.8m) and the Learjet 70 (with a list price of $11.3m). The Learjet 75 and 70 were introduced as improvements over the Learjet 45 and 40, respectively. Among the enhancements these models offer are new TFE731-40BR engines, new winglets and a three-screen Garmin G5000 avionics panel packaged and marketed as the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck. While the MGTOW of both models is 21,500lbs, the Learjet 70 is 2.6 feet shorter than the Learjet 75. In terms of residual value a 2015 Learjet 75 is indicated to be at about 52% of its new price, based upon a retail value today of $7.2m.

Learjet 60/60SE/60XR

The Learjet 60 was introduced to the market as the successor to the Learjet 55 model (overleaf). It included a 3.5 foot stretched fuselage over its predecessor allowing Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

for increased passenger and baggage space. Many have an optional Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) installed in the rear compartment. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305A engines, the original Learjet 60 is equipped with Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) and has a standard Collins Proline 4 avionics package (with four-tube EFIS, digital tuning heads and Collins FMS-850 Flight Management System). The Learjet 60SE followed the original Learjet 60, and is equipped with the same engines as the standard model, but has a 1,000lbs higher MGTOW (23,750lbs). It was introduced as the ‘Special Edition’, because it features an APU, the Collins TWR-850 Radar, TCAS II, new interior and entertainment system, and an expanded list of new-build options that could add up to $1m to the delivered price. The Learjet 60XR, meanwhile, is the same as a 60SE model, except that the avionics suite had been upgraded to the Proline 21, four-tube EFIS system. The Learjet 60XR also features a redesigned, expanded galley cabinet and a much-improved entertainment system. Finally, the aft lavatory incorporates a cabin window for natural lighting. The residual value of a 2000-model Learjet 60 is currently at about 12% of its 2000 list price. The current retail value is approximately $1.7m.

incorporating a further upgraded version of the same TFE731-20BR engines which allowed a 1,000lbs increase to MGTOW (21,500lbs). Again, an APU is standard.

Although the Learjet 55B that followed utilized the same engines, it also offered operators increased MGTOW, and an all-digital flight deck. Finally, the Learjet 55C introduced Delta Fins on the lower-rear fuselage for increased pitch, and directional stability, and single-point refuel became standard for this model. Rockwell Collins’ Five-Tube EFIS-85L, APS-85 Autopilot and UNS-1A FMS were incorporated into the cockpit. The residual value of a 1983 Learjet 55 is currently at about 11% of its 1983 list price ($6.9m) and the current retail value is ~$730k.

The Learjet 40 is shorter by two feet than the Learjet 45XR model, but is powered by the same engines. Performance is stellar, but it carries less fuel and therefore offers a shorter range. The reduced cabin length also eliminates two seats. Further, the Learjet 40 is not equipped with an APU. The Learjet 40XR offers approximately 650lbs greater MGTOW (21,000lbs) than the Learjet 40 and increased range with the greater fuel capacity. The residual value of a 2006 Learjet 40 is currently at about 18% of its 2006 list price ($10.838m) with the current retail value being around $1.9m.

Learjet 45/45XR

The Bombardier Learjet 45 was a clean-sheet aircraft design when it entered the market. Most importantly for passengers, the interior cabin space was designed first, with the aircraft being built around that space, all by computer modeling. The only component shared with earlier Learjet models was the Nose Landing Gear. Everything else was new. Up to s/n52, the standard Learjet 45 model came equipped with TFE731-20R engines, each producing 3,500lbst and featuring FADEC. After s/n52, these engines were delivered in the -20AR configuration (offering more robust hot-section components, and improved reliability with new carbon seals). An APU is an option on the Learjet 45. The Learjet 45XR differed from the standard model, by 58

The Learjet 36A meanwhile kept the same engines, but offered a higher MGTOW than the Learjet 35A. The residual value of a 1980 Learjet 35A is currently about 13% of the 1980 list price, and the current retail value is ~$645,000.

Learjet 35/35A/36/36A

The Learjet 35 and Learjet 36 out-produced and out-sold all other Learjet models. The original Learjet 35 had two aerodynamic configurations: • •

The original factory wing with top-surface mounted vortex generators; or The STC’d Raisbeck wing (Mark IV Stall Improvement System) that eliminated the generators and added two wing fences

Learjet’s own factory production ‘Softflite’ wing became standard on the Learjet 35A model, while thrust reversers were optional on both models. The original Learjet 35 utilized a pair of TFE731-2-2A engines, but the -2B powerplants were chosen for the Learjet 35A. The Learjet 35A model also had two extra cabin windows and offered an increased MGTOW of 18,300lbs (versus 17,000lbs) over the Learjet 35. The -2B powerplants on the Learjet 35A is upgradable to the -2C version which offers more robust hot-section components, improved reliability with new carbon seals, increased compressor and turbine cycle lives to scrap. The Learjet 36, meanwhile, used the same engines as

Learjet 31/31A

The Learjet 31 is essentially a model 35A that retains the same engines but flies with the wing from the Learjet 28 Longhorn (i.e. winglets in-place of wing-tip fuel tanks). It also incorporates delta fins like the Learjet 55. With the loss of the tip-tanks, its range was restricted to 1,450nm (475nm less than the Learjet 35A). The Learjet 31A model improved on the original Learjet 31 model by incorporating Bendix-King/Honeywell avionics with EFIS, a new autopilot, radios, and a Universal FMS. Later production model 31A aircraft were delivered with FADEC. The residual value of a 1995 Learjet 31A is currently at about 14% of the 1995 list price, and the current retail value is about $940k.

Aircraft Comparative Analysis

Cessna Citation X vs Citation X+ vs Embraer Legacy 450 In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on a group of popular Mid-Size business jets for the purpose of valuing the Citation X and X+.

CITATION X

H

ow do the Citation X and X+ compare in the market today? Over the following paragraphs, we’ll consider various productivity parameters (payload, range, speed and cabin size) and cover current market values. The field in this study also includes the Embraer Legacy 450. Several aircraft within the Citation family preceded the Citation X, but this model represented a clean sheet design when Cessna introduced it to the market in October 1990. A period of six years elapsed before the company could meet several specifications required to obtain certification. For more than 20 years, the Citation business jets were known as well-handling, but relatively slow aircraft. Thus, the Citation X broke the mold when it became the fastest corporate jet in the world, offering a top speed of 0.92 Mach with a maximum flight altitude of 51,000 feet. Powered by two Rolls-Royce/Allison AE 3007C1 engines, the Citation X also features a 37-degree swept wing, a Honeywell Primus 2000 flight guidance system and a stand-up cabin. Citation X production stopped in 2012 and the upgraded Citation X+ was introduced in 2013. The upgraded Cessna Citation X+ offers a longer cabin (accommodating two crew and eight to twelve passengers (nine is standard)), and improved range over the original Citation X. Utilizing fully integrated Garmin G5000 digital avionics suite and new generation Rolls-Royce AE 3007C2 turbofan powerplants, it also offers a higher maximum cruise speed of 0.935 Mach. Citation X+ production continues today.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

The total number of Citation X aircraft manufactured is 315, with 309 in operation around the world today. Of those, 276 are whollyowned with seven in shared ownership and 26 in fractional ownership. There are 25 Citation X+ aircraft in operation, with one in shared ownership. Eleven percent of all Citation X and X+ jets are leased. Of the Citation X and X+ aircraft in operation, by continent North America has the largest percentage at 89% followed by Europe (5%), accounting for a combined total of 94% of the world’s fleet. Just over a quarter (28%) of the Citation X and Citation X+ jets in operation today are in fleet ownership. The largest fleet operator is US-based NetJets, which operates 25 Citation Xs. As of December 2017, the Citation X market comprised of 25% new versus 75% pre-owned. By comparison, the Citation X+ was 88% new versus 12% used. The percentage of Citation Xs ‘For Sale’ stood at 10.7% of the fleet, which take an average 359 days to sell. The percentage of Citation X+ jets ‘For Sale’ was 7.7%, with an average 179 days on the market.

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are often depreciable for income tax purposes under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Under MACRS, taxpayers are allowed to accelerate the depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first few years of the applicable recovery period (see Table C middle, left). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS)  Aircraft Index see Page 145

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 six-year recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as nonbusiness flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. The US enacted the 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act into law on December 22, 2017. Under the new Act, taxpayers may be able to deduct up to 100 percent of the cost of a new or used aircraft purchased after September 27, 2017 and placed in service before January 1, 2023. This 100 percent expensing provision is a huge bonus for aircraft owners and operators. After December 31, 2022 the Act decreases the percentage available each year by 20 percent to depreciate qualified aircraft until December 31, 2026.

Asking Prices & Quantity

The current used jet market for the Cessna Citation X aircraft shows a total of 33 aircraft ‘For Sale’ with 17 displaying an asking price ranging from $2.445m to $11.265m. We also reviewed the used Citation X+ (two for sale) with one listed at $17m. There were no Embraer Legacy 450s ‘For Sale’ at the time of analysis. (According to Vref, a 10-year-old (2007) Citation X value has declined to 29% of its new retail price.) While each serial number is unique, the Airframe (AFTT) hours and age/condition will cause great variations in a used jet’s value. Of course, the final negotiated price remains to be decided between the seller and buyer before the sale of an aircraft is completed.

Productivity Comparisons

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

Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the Citation X and Citation X+ display a high level of productivity. The Citation X+ business jet is offered at a much higher new price compared to the Embraer Legacy 450. Indeed, the Embraer Legacy 450 offers greater cabin volume and lower variable operating costs than the Citation X and X+, but it also offers a little less range and much less ‘Available payload with Maximum Fuel’. Operators should weigh up their mission requirements precisely when picking the option that is best for them.

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business aircraft operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance, and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. The Citation X and X+ continue to be popular today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Citation X and X+ will continue to do well in the used markets for the foreseeable future. (Of course, if your Citation X and X+ jets are not outfitted with ADS-B Out, they cannot be placed in operation within US airspace after December 31, 2019.) T

What To Know About ICAO Airspace Plans Ken Elliott discusses airspace plans and how they impact all aspects of General Aviation, including business aircraft. In a three-part series he covers the US, Europe and ICAO, respectively, concluding this month with ICAO... he International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), headquartered in Montreal, has 191-member states with a 36-member governing council. It serves as the global forum of States for international civil aviation developing policies and standards, with a vision to “achieve the sustainable growth of the global civil aviation system”. Like any other agency, ICAO creates operational principles in the form of Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), focusing on safety management. It also develops Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) and regional Supplementary Procedures (SUPPs). From a regulatory perspective, ICAO oversees international aviation safety, security, efficiency and environmental protection. The organization also regulates operating practices and procedures that involve the technical field of aviation. At a higher level, ICAO creates plans and

guidance for its membership to use as a template in their regional Air Traffic Management (ATM) applications. Being globally focused, it also adjusts and adopts mature and significantly impacting plans, such as Europe’s SESAR and the US NextGen, both originally initiated by the ‘ICAO Global ATM Operational Concept’. Countries such as Australia closely abide by the intent of ICAO’s plans, ensuring their ATM operation is “a dynamic, integrated management of air traffic and airspace, operating safely, economically and efficiently — through the provision of facilities and seamless services in collaboration with all parties and involving airborne and ground-based functions” as defined by ICAO. Member countries develop their own airspace plans from ICAO framework documents, partially because these documents call out for states to develop their own regional and national ATM Plans and State Safety Programs. These documents include: • Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP) • Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) States with complex and individual airspace characteristics such as Russia, China and Brazil (and

As we find with regional plans, once you dig below the surface there is an enormous amount of data generated from years of committee level effort, providing guidance that keeps airspaces safe and efficient. ICAO sees airspace improvements as a series of block upgrades. These upgrades are scalable to a regional level, including both their applicability and their timing. Ironically, the content of these blocks is leveraged from FAA and Eurocontrol programs already in place or underway. This ensures that ICAO and their regional partners are in step (and particularly refers to Block 0 and 1 modules). ‘Blocks’ identified under the Aviation System Block Upgrade (ASBU) include modules performing as the individual cubes in a digital ‘Rubik’s Cube’. There are four major timeline Blocks with target implementation dates as follows: • • • •

Table B (left) lists all the Threads, Modules and Blocks for Performance Improvement Area 4 - Efficient Flight Path. This Performance Improvement Area includes the use of forward-looking technologies and is an example of areas that may directly impact Business Aviation over the long-term. In Table B, for Block 0 (B0-), the proven components of the performance improvement are already in place, as of 2013. The target member states may implement these Modules anytime from 2013 and ideally by the close of 2018. The modules were completed and proven prior to 2013, by either FAA or Eurocontrol, via implementation at specific airports, routes and flown by identified operators, usually a major air carrier. These modules and their components will continue to be applied regionally adapting to the distinct local variations, as they apply. So for example, Block 0 Modules will still be applied at different levels of maturity, in different regions of the world, beyond 2018. Block 1 Modules are also well under way with all their components anticipated to be in place by 2019. They will subsequently be implemented and utilized by member states between 2019 and 2024. Following Block 1 will be Block 2, functioning between 2025 and 2030, and then Block 3 commencing in 2031. Timeline dates have shifted and may well do so again, normally to the right. The primary guidance material covering the implementation of Block D content is the ‘Working Document for the Aviation System Block Upgrades’. This important document is further supported by several granular level documents pertaining to specific applications. Table C (left) takes the Block Thread of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) ‘Improved Safety and Efficiency through the initial application of Data Link En-Route’ from Performance Improvement Area 4. Importantly, ICAO monitors the implementation progress of its Performance Improvements by the use of Key Performance Areas (KPA), measuring each module, to gauge its effectiveness. Note how Table C introduces the Technology in support of the Elements of the Module. It includes both ground and airborne technology and shows clearly, in this case, the need for airborne FANS and  ATN technology. (FANS being for March 2018 – AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Technology

ICAO document 9750 - Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP), includes a section on technology as it applies to ASBU blocks. The technology falling into one of 10 roadmaps is both airspaceand aircraft-centric. It is isolated out into domains and components of activity, potentially involving equipage for both (see Table D, bottom left). For Business and General Aviation aircraft, the Avionics domain is of specific interest. Each Roadmap has a format showing when the technology may be available that in turn drives the block module implementation date. The Avionics domain provides its own indication of future equipage. From a general perspective we are now seeing the gradual blurring of Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) into one integrated technology. Data communication will drive navigation that itself, is under constant surveillance. Any change to route, navigation procedure, communication frequency, proximity traffic and weather will initiate a combined CNS response. For pilots and ‘non-pilot autonomous operations’, these integrated CNS ‘commands’ will be seamless, reducing cockpit workload, while enabling greater focus on the ‘art and fun of flying’. The equipment being installed today, designed to meet mandates and operating requirements, will not necessarily be replaced in the future. Equipment may be upgraded, via hardware and software, to maintain its capability. However, operators can anticipate the addition of equipment to facilitate a cockpit integration of 4D trajectory navigation, some time in the next decade (see Figure 3, overleaf). Furthermore, legacy used aircraft operators may need to add ‘some box or other’ to continue operating their older avionics in the new ‘blurred CNS’ environment. It has to be understood that despite the daunting prospect of additional financial outlay, equipage is crucial to  Aircraft Index see Page 145

airspace performance. The greater number of aircraft that have capability, the more effective the performance improvement. This, in turn, feeds into the integrated airspace performance and begins to have the quantitative effect of ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. It should be noted that block modules of the Global Air Navigation Plan are inter-dependent, providing a complex set of possibilities that can impact the implementation of different modules, added to which are regional application variabilities to be considered.

Oceanic

For remote and oceanic regions, the burden of responsibility for global plans falls more on ICAO than in populated terrestrial locations. For these vast open areas there are equipage requirements that already bring together and blur the separate identities of the three CNS components. Datalink Communication and the Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADSC) of Surveillance ensures safe and reliable flight within the PBN tracks of Navigation. Purely from an aircraft equipage perspective, and specific to Required 76

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

Navigation Performance (RNP), RNP 10 (RNAV 10 designation) and RNP 4, the requirements to operate are clearly defined by ICAO. Oceanic and Remote RNP 10 and 4 requires that each aircraft monitors and alerts the performance and accuracy of its flight along a track. An accuracy that needs to be maintained 95% of the time. 50nm-RNP 10, and 30nm-RNP4, spacing between aircraft, along and aside each track, is permitted by the frequent use of communication and surveillance. Apart from cockpit monitoring, the use of datalink and ADS-C is mandatory for RNP. Going forward, expect an incremental decrease in lateral and longitudinal separation and a greater deployment of these separations, along a greater number of Oceanic and Remote routes. Anticipate an additional upgrade of existing Flight Management Systems, either of a hardware or software nature. Of course, you can also look forward to acquiring more operational approvals and more cockpit monitoring alerts.

Summary

Adequately covering ICAO, alone, is a mammoth task and we have barely skimmed the surface of its policy breadth and depth. www.AVBUYER.com

Of help to pilots may be the documents relating to regional plans such as Document 7030 (check latest edition) and ASBU Monitoring Reports, provided by ICAO-EUR States (2016) showing each EU member state’s adoption status of the various modules. This can be very useful to aircraft operators intending to navigate across, and access into different member states and airspaces. For operators who are NBAA members, there is a reliable resource available covering international operations. Additionally the Flight Services Bureau international OPSGROUP offers comprehensive coverage of operations. This trilogy of airspace articles has brought together and summarized FAAEurocontrol and ICAO airspace plans that together govern, guide and control the equipment we use and the airspace in which we fly. As a final tip, I suggest constant vigilance in monitoring the activity of all three agencies. Their requirements and timelines tend to shift and change as much as the weather impacting the performance improvements they are trying to implement. That being said, there is no prospect of a delay in the ADS-B Out mandate, relating to FAA and Eurocontrol, at this time. T Aircraft Index see Page 145

t was a typical Middle-Eastern day; hot and bone-dry. The crew stayed with the airplane to complete the fueling, pre-flight preparations and to cool the cabin down while I returned to the FBO to greet the passengers. A few minutes before the limo carrying our principal pulled up, my phone rang. The first officer was calling to inform me that he could not fuel the aircraft to the required load. High ambient temperatures and fuel expansion had caused the aircraft’s computer to limit the fuel intake. We would now require an unplanned fuel stop en route. My first call was to our international trip handler. They asked pertinent questions and developed a new plan that included an interim fuel stop. In less than 45 minutes, they had re-arranged our flight plans and managed to secure new clearances that included overflying Iran. We experienced only a minimal delay to our planned time of departure, the fuel stop was quick and efficient and our handler even arranged a gift basket delivery for our passengers to help minimize any inconvenience. Upon landing at our destination, customs had already been informed of the delay resulting from the fuel stop, the handler had re-arranged our ground transportation and everything moved seamlessly towards the conclusion of a successful flight. For domestic Flight Planning, a Flight Department can quickly learn to optimize its operations and extract maximum benefits from fuel and services required. But flying internationally can be a very different ball-game, for a plethora of unexpected reasons such as the one highlighted above. For international flight, using a handler can also provide value beyond the obvious. For example, the complexities of

I

international flying don’t end as the hangar door closes on a trip. Invoices for overflights and airway charges can be overwhelming, arriving at multiple destinations (office, local airport and home) and at different times (sometimes months after a trip was completed). Failure to track and pay one of these could result in denied access to airspace or landing rights on future missions. Using a handler as an agent for handling airspace invoices can help alleviate any potential problems, while providing the Flight Department with tripspecific invoices that clearly describe all of the charges. So how does a Flight Department source a handler that can offer the high level of service they need?

Outsourced Flight Planning: All About Synergy

If your Flight Department could benefit from outsourcing international Flight Planning and trip support to an experienced organization, the next question is which service provider to choose. Regardless of the Flight Department, a strong global presence from the provider is a must. Beyond that, choosing the right handler is all about synergy. The manager of a larger flight operation might prioritize the need for efficiency under pressure above personalized service. Their need will be for a larger handler that is staffed to fulfill the higher service demand. Smaller Flight Departments may prefer boutique-style handling with a personalized touch. Ultimately, the final choice comes down to what a specific Flight Department needs, where it can have its needs met and the regions covered by the handler. Once the right provider is selected, the establishment of a long-term relationship  March 2018 – AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Flight Planning.qxp_Finance 20/02/2018 14:15 Page 3

OPERATING T FLIGHT PLANNING

“The handler should demonstrate willing to learn how your Flight Department operates and almost anticipate what will be requested as a trip comes to the planning board.” with the one company will prove beneficial to the operator. As it becomes more familiar with the needs of the Flight Department, the support provider will remember hotel preferences and have all the necessary aircraft, passenger and crew documentation readily available on file. With an established relationship, the dispatch team will also prove more sympathetic to the many changes that occur as the trip planning changes and evolves. The handler should demonstrate willing to learn how your Flight Department operates and almost anticipate what will be requested as a trip comes to the planning board.

Why Outsource Flight Planning?

Once the handler receives a proposed schedule, they build a trip package. This may be downloaded to a digital tablet and the aircraft’s FMS. Naturally, however, updates, changes and additions (such as ground transportation and hotel logistics) are further optimized and updated as the final details of the trip are established. The handler with whom you have built a relationship should prove flexible to your needs, from initial planning, through following the flight

from the moment of departure all the way to the destination’s hotel check-in. Indeed, as a trip begins your handler obtains overflight permits and proposes re-routes and fuel stops. Monitoring weather, politics and fuel prices, a handler with global presence will offer local knowledge of the regions you’re traveling to. Having somebody to watch the details that can change on a moment’s notice allows the crew to get adequate rest before a long-haul flight knowing the finer details of the flight are in good hands. (It may seem a minor point, but your longterm dispatcher should also be cognizant of when to refrain from interrupting pre-flight rest times, unless the matter requires an immediate response.)

To Summarize

A Flight Department might try several providers before finding the one best aligned with their operation, and there will undoubtedly be a learning curve in doing so. Build the relationship, invest in polishing the processes and have reasonable expectations. You’ll be rewarded with direct routings, optimized flight levels and many smooth flights. T

A

fence provides a measure of security against casual encroachments of a property. An alarm system dissuades the more active intruder. In the world of digital software and hardware, digital firewalls provide protection from potential usurpers. As aviation grows ever deeper into the realm of computers, aircraft need protections that are common in the computer; walls that are created to protect sensitive hardware and software from digital invasion. Hardware firewalls, software firewalls, and other protective measures exist to wall-off the sensitive areas from the dangers of uninvited incursions. Yet in today's wireless age Business Aviation operators sometimes fail to fully tend to their walls, making their on-board internet systems open to encroachment. Some once held the belief that flying at high speeds with miles of separation from the ground somehow insulated their digital systems from the threat of digital invasion. But, as proven on multiple occasions recently, neither near-Mach flying speeds or 10 miles of altitude provide reliable protection from a dedicated hacker. The best defenses against external threats to aircraft in-flight connectivity comes in the form of a strong offense; utilization of the best-practices for self-protection measures in and around your aircraft’s in-flight internet and entertainment systems. Following is some industry advice…

Security: Only as Good as Your Use Habits

In reality, no system guarantees complete protection against the creative hacker, noted Brian Wilson, Director, Key Accounts, with Gogo Business Aviation, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity solutions and services. “We receive many inquiries  Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

about data security. Corporations want assurance that their data is safe,” Wilson qualifies. As an Internet Service Provider (ISP) in its own right, Gogo takes the importance of network security very seriously. “Our data is encrypted and supported by two redundant data centers on the ground. The data (from the ground networks) is then encrypted to and from the aircraft,” he details. But beyond the ground- and satellite-based systems and the security measures ISPs take on their end, responsibility for system security ultimately falls to the owner, operator and crews maintaining and flying the aircraft. Consistent protection requires consistent use of the available tools and technologies, along with some best practices. Together these tools and steps offer protection from the majority of incursions.

Internet Security ‘On-The-Go’

One significant challenge for business aircraft operators with in-flight internet systems, however, stems from the very thing that appeals to operators: The aircraft’s mobility, in flight and (especially) when back on the ground. As vexing as it sounds, however, information technology professionals employ many tools and tricks to protect airborne systems from the unwanted intrusions and active assaults. Most will sound familiar to anyone who worked through the same issues that challenge office systems. One potential source of an incursion into aircraft 84

systems appears when maintenance or flight crew update their avionics software using wireless gateways available at their home base and many FBOs. This potential opening arises as avionics OEMs seek to improve their users' ability to update the avionics software anywhere a connection is available. For some packages the wireless gateways on-board and at FBOs provides the ideal solution – eliminating the potential for a traveling pilot to miss a database update that could be waiting in the office mailbox. Many avionics systems allow the person performing the update to download the latest software to an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), other tablet or smartphone before using another wireless transfer in the cockpit to upload the update directly into the avionics stack. In both cases the security of passwords and IDs provide the main protection against errant hackers or accidental incursions into the supposedly secure avionics. These types of threats also plague the in-flight internet system used for cabin connectivity, and those supplying in-flight entertainment (IFE) to that cabin.

Prevention as a Cure

Gogo's Brian Wilson offered a number of suggestions to help secure the aircraft’s in-flight networks. One user-choice option for an extra layer of security is commonly used by ground networks: the Virtual Private Network (VPN). “We urge the usage of VPNs,” offers Wilson. “That extra layer of protection can be the difference

OPERATING T CONNECTIVITY

between a successful hack and a failed attempt. But VPNs are not without their own issues. They do absorb additional bandwidth – but they also offer an enhanced layer of security.” Indeed, as networks become more robust and their throughput speeds increase the downsides of VPNs are reduced. Aircraft users can help their cause by avoiding the use of open networks. “The internet is part of our daily lives and free Wi-Fi is available at coffee shops, restaurants, airports and hotels,” Wilson observes. “Any time someone uses an ‘open’ Wi-Fi connection, they (and their device) are subject to infiltration and hacking of their data. “Aircraft that have Wi-Fi on board should absolutely use a password for a log-in,” Wilson stresses. “Many do not!” The lack of a password to access a network is comparable to leaving a bank vault or retail store open. It is, according to a variety of internet security experts, “an invitation to steal data”. “It's like leaving a sign proclaiming ‘we’re open, take whatever you want’,” according to one avionics technician whose job it is to update aircraft avionics and in-flight internet systems. “We change passwords no less than with every chart update, and as often as weekly.”

“‘Aircraft that have Wi-Fi on board should absolutely use a password for a log-in,’ Wilson stresses. ‘Many do not!’”

The Risks are Everywhere

The threat when on the ground seems obvious, Wilson notes. “In the case of an aircraft sitting at an 86

FBO and parked next to the terminal it is possible that someone sitting in the lobby can connect to the system - particularly a system lacking suitable firewall or password protections. “One option is for the crew to have a Wi-Fi on/off switch in the cockpit to control such activities.” If power is cut, there's no running system to hack. But hacks can also occur in-flight. The smartest hackers may know how to crack satellite-based systems to connect to aircraft in-flight. Alternatively, an aircraft flying within a few hundred feet of an unprotected aircraft could theoretically hack into the unprotected system. The surest solutions to protecting system integrity remain the complex password systems, VPNs, and the powering-off of the airborne network at the terminal. Best practices touted by aircraft electronics users include aligning updates of EFB software and navigation software (both generally every 28 days) with updating operating software for the in-flight internet systems. As for changing passwords for access, the challenge for some operations will grow out of the necessity of secure distribution of the password update to the crews who need to know. Of course, if you’re uncomfortable with waiting four weeks to change passwords, weekly changes seem a common step that can keep airborne systems secure for years on end. T

t’s one of the most important parts of your aircraft. It’s also one of the most expensive components to maintain. The life of your aircraft engines and the condition of your records can play a big part in your aircraft ownership costs. Given that this can ultimately impact your aircraft value, should you be fiscally conservative or should your make sure your aircraft engines are in tip top shape? Following is some advice to help answer that question…

Understand Your Engine Maintenance Requirements Fully

Aircraft engines were made with specific capabilities in mind. They were engineered to be able to perform precise requirements in terms of fuel consumption, thrust or horsepower. Since the engine performance requirements are specific, their maintenance requirements are unique – so each engine make and model comes with the manufacturer’s requirements for proper maintenance. For example, inspection and overhaul requirements will be contained in each engine model’s maintenance manual. These can be very different (i.e., a Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5 popular on the Beechjet requires hot section inspections (covering the combustion portion of the engine) at 1,800 hours and a complete overhaul at 3,600 hours, whereas the TFE-731-5BR, popular on the Hawker 800XP, which requires hot sections/MPIs at 2,100 hours and a complete engine overhaul/CZI at 4,200 hours. Moreover, requirements can vary based on Service Bulletin status. It’s vital for business aircraft ownership budgeting to fully understand these costs, and know exactly when items are due. These costs should also factor into your decision when buying jets or turboprops. Additional requirements will be laid out in an aircraft manual that may not be defined as engine components by the engine manufacturer. Nevertheless, they are attached to the engine. Items such as starter generators, engine mounts, thrust  Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

reversers and more will have their requirements determined by the airframe maintenance manual. Neglecting the maintenance or overhaul requirements of these particular items can lead to failures and unexpected expense. The intent of each engine manufacturer is for the engine to be maintained in accordance with the requirements they put in place. These requirements were not intended as optional. We are often asked if the cost will be the same at overhaul if the engine is operated past overhaul or hot section. In almost all cases the answer is no. The reason these inspections are put in place is to catch damage before it can cause additional issues or a catastrophic failure. In some situations, many of the parts are allowed to be repaired if they are still within manufacturer limits or tolerances. In most situations, however, when the engine is pushed past the overhaul or inspection period, many of those parts could be worn past their limits and would not only be dangerous, but unacceptable for continued operation. At that point, an owner would have to scrap and replace the part with a new, overhauled or repaired unit. In all cases when the core unit is not repairable the new part will be more expensive, thus providing an example of how money can be saved by paying a cost in the near-term for engine maintenance that would otherwise cost the customer significantly more in the long-term. Furthermore, if the part or component fails in operation and causes a catastrophic failure of the 90

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

engine, additional internal damage could result, and the engine rendered Beyond Economical Repair (BER). At that point, engine replacement would be an extreme cost to the owner or operator.

Who Maintains Your Engines?

When choosing a facility to maintain your engines, there are two basic options to consider. Will you use: • A repair station, or • An individual engine provider? An FAA Certified Repair Station will have numerous factory-trained technicians with many years of practical application experience. An inspection department should research to ensure the engine is current with all the required Service Bulletins or Airworthiness Directives, work multiple shifts to help ensure a shorter downtime, and have the buying power to ensure price breaks on parts, tooling, technical data and training required. A reputable shop can handle any warranty issues and have insurance to handle any issue needing support. Choosing an individual Airframe and Powerplant mechanic could prove less expensive, however. You may have a personal relationship with that individual and they can likely complete the work at your facility. Keep in mind that at resale, reputation of aircraft maintenance history in logbook reviews are evaluated and factored into the pedigree of the airplane.

Undertake Preventative Engine Washes and Cleanings

It’s worth remembering that completing a compressor wash or another internal wash can remove many corrosion-causing substances. The recommendations for frequency of the wash can vary based on engine models (many engines are every 200 to 400 hours). Moreover, if your aircraft is based - or often flies in areas that are known to be corrosive environments like Florida and the Caribbean islands, it can be beneficial for your engines to be cleaned more often. The same goes for heavily polluted environments containing smog and other airborne particles that can decrease the life of certain components of your engines. Although these might be an additional shortterm cost, when compared to replacing a corroded component it can prove to be a huge long-term cost saving, while keeping your engine performance at the highest level.

Keeping Up With Engine Program Requirements

Many engines are on programs like Engine Assurance Program, JSSI, Rolls-Royce CorporateCare, MSP or Vmax. These programs make it easy for aircraft operators to budget and allocate for unexpected, high-dollar items. In some cases, they can even save aircraft owners money. As with any extended warranty program, there are specific requirements in regard to how you maintain your engines to receive full coverage. It is critical 92

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

for you to fully understand these and comply. When purchasing an aircraft that is enrolled on an engine program, be sure to do a thorough review of all aircraft logbooks to make sure all items are in compliance with that engine program’s requirements. Many engine programs are also customized to fit a specific operator’s requirements, so make sure the program contract fits your mission.

Pay Now Save Later?

Fully understanding what it takes to keep an engine properly maintained can save you a lot of money at engine overhaul. Make sure you not only understand major events like hot sections and overhauls, but all of the short-run items. While they may seem minor at the time, every little bit adds up and, if neglected, can cost you much more than expected at overhaul. Because every engine make and model has different requirements, engine maintenance can be difficult to understand. If you have questions, make sure to reach out to a reputable service center that is experienced in the type of aircraft you operate. They can help give you advice and tips on how to maintain your aircraft engines to avoid extra costs at overhaul. More information from www.elliottaviation.com

Why Use Engine Maintenance Programs? What is the value of an engine maintenance program, and what should operators

be aware of when selecting the right one for their needs? Dave Higdon discusses… t their fundamental levels the assortment of engine maintenance programs available to operators of business aircraft are not typical warranties. They’re more akin to policies insuring against breakage, failure or any other covered problem likely to arise in the powerplant. In Business Aviation these programs stand among the most used and useful options for aircraft owners and operators. Indeed, some of the coverage options go far beyond the powerplants, extending literally from nose-cone to tail-cone. Yet the most salient variation between the dominant aircraft maintenance programs comes down to pricing. Most ‘extended warranty’ programs cost a flat-rate for a fixed period of time, sometimes with the option to continue coverage with an extension at the end of the prescribed coverage term.

Programs for business aircraft more typically follow a premium pattern. Hours flown are a common measure for almost everything else in aviation. There’s little difference here, where the client pays according to how much they've flown in the premium period. A periodic premium notice reflects the hours logged for that period. While variables in costs and coverage exist among the programs, they all offer operators a couple of common benefits, including: • •

Comprehensive turbine engine maintenance, and Overhaul coverage at a fixed price per hour

With these comes the welcome ability to budget enginemaintenance costs for a stated period (the cost-predictability

“ The key is to know what you’re buying, and to run the costs of participation against maintenance-cost expectation to ensure that the cost equation stands on its own”

serves as the common denominator that gives appeal to any use-based maintenance coverage program). In addition, these programs are financially attractive, since they generally boost the value of covered aircraft and they help buoy prices at the time of sale. When the engine maintenance program can transfer with an airplane as it passes from one owner to another, the value boost can make a big difference to the prospective buyer.

The Beginnings of Pre-Paid Protection

In the early years of these programs, Learjet was barely into its second decade but already under new ownership. Across the airport, guiding Cessna was a new management team busy introducing the Citation 500. Gulfstream was in the early stages of entering Business Aviation with the GI while Dassault's Falcon was a number 10. All of this new activity brought new products, and with them a different type of customer. Vendors sought ways to differentiate themselves from their competitors, and Rolls-Royce – already a leading player in business jet powerplants – invented Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

the ‘Power by the Hour’ program. While Rolls-Royce gets the credit for creating the Power by the Hour concept, back in the 1970s no good idea stood alone for long. Within months Garrett, with its own stake in business turbine aircraft, came up with its own concept – what Garrett’s descendant, Honeywell, today continues to call Maintenance Service Plan (MSP). As with many business innovations, as competition grew the costs changed and the options expanded. From those two pioneers the gates opened wider, expanding beyond programs offered by powerplant OEMs to independent pre-paid maintenance-program providers such as Jet Support Services Inc. (JSSI).

Understand What You're Buying

Providers of pre-paid engine-maintenance programs offer them in a variety of ways, all of them covering a defined set of needs that may range from the basics, to all-encompassing coverage. Some may charge a portion of the costs back to the aircraft owner as a form of deductible while others cover all costs for predictable periodic maintenance (but require cost-sharing for unplanned maintenance events). Still others cover it all – whether planned periodic, unplanned, all hot-section and cold-section components and accessories. The key is to know what you’re buying, and to run the costs of participation against maintenance-cost expectation to ensure that the cost equation stands on its own. Equally important is to know the limitations and any exclusions detailed in the contract. 

Your Program's Assigned Representative

Most providers of these programs assign a staff member to work with clients, usually grouped by geography or equipment types. When a client finds the aircraft to be in need of work, the first call should be to the client representative assigned by the enginemaintenance program provider. Armed with detailed knowledge of the client's aircraft, its location and as much detail as possible about the problem itself, the field representative can set in motion the appropriate process for the problem at hand. The representative will bring in maintenance technicians to the location of an Aircraft-on-Ground (AOG), or help them prepare the aircraft for ferrying to a location better equipped to perform the needed work. (That may necessitate the acquisition of a ferry permit, ferry crew and coordination with the chosen maintenance shop.)

The Value Equation

As a rule of thumb, the greater the depth of coverage, the more expensive the per-hour fee is likely to be. Similarly, the greater the depth of coverage, the greater the impact on resale and residual values will be. In fact, sellers typically mention the program the aircraft ‘For Sale’ is enrolled on, and for how long. It’s not uncommon for an owner or operator to enroll an aircraft in one of these pre-paid engine maintenance programs starting at delivery, with coverage structured to eliminate any gaps in factory warranty. The existence of records relating to the enrollment also

becomes a positive selling point. The owner often notes that the coverage provided by the pre-paid program has been designed to either expand upon, or replace the factory coverage upon its expiration. Again, the existence of pre-paid coverage from the start and the maintenance records available from that program serve to enhance the resale and residual values of the covered aircraft. The option to transfer the program to a new owner provides buyers with a bit of extra comfort and security about their purchase decision.

Pay Up-Front, Predictably

Several elements go into the cost of owning and operating a business turbine aircraft. Hangar rent… fuel… insurance… crew… and maintenance… Maintenance is no more avoidable than fuel. Indeed, both items tend to grow or shrink with the hours flown. Just as fuel programs and fuel-purchase programs help operators manage their fuel costs, pre-paid engine-maintenance programs deliver even more to operators in a known, per-timeunit cost for maintenance, before it’s needed. Thus, when it is required, the costs can be as little as nothing, depending on the program. It’s no wonder those enrolled on such programs have a marketable asset that is proven to enhance the ownership experience, control maintenance expenditures and assure that the airplane never gets behind on its scheduled maintenance because of cost concerns. The up-front payments make sure of that. T

Pre-Purchase Inspections: Don’t Take a Hit at Time of Sale If you’re thinking of selling your jet,

how can you be sure of your aircraft’s condition? JSSI’s George Kleros offers advice to help you avoid

taking a hit on the value of your jet…

W

hen the term ‘Pre-Purchase Inspection’ is mentioned, it can create various thoughts in the minds of aviation professionals – not all of them pleasant. Why is that? The main reason is that this one event can lead to unexpected, costly maintenance issues that may impact the sale of the aircraft. There are at least five areas that should be addressed to adequately prepare for a Pre-Purchase Inspection, helping you avoid unexpected hurdles when it’s time to close on the sale of the aircraft.

Borescope – Know Before you go There

For decades, performing an engine borescope prior to acceptance of the aircraft purchase has been a common occurrence. Many people believe the borescope is a standard procedure that is required, and that the transaction won’t move forward without it. However, the need for a borescope of the engine depends on how the buyer and the seller structure this process into a sales agreement.  98

OPERATING T MAINTENANCE

There are areas that should be well understood before finalizing a sales contract and beginning the Pre-Purchase Inspection. The first question the seller needs to ask is whether the aircraft hull insurance provider accepts any adverse findings, such as Foreign Object Damage (FOD), if the borescope is performed outside of an incident? Performing a pre-purchase borescope may not be considered an ‘event’, and if the hull insurance provider does accept the finding(s) under this elective inspection, you need to understand what the underwriter is contracted to cover. Typically, only direct damage is covered, while restoration of worn assemblies and parts will not be covered. Depending on the engine’s age, time before overhaul, or total time since last shop visit for oncondition engines, the newly discovered FOD could launch a premature overhaul event that may range from $400,000 to $4m in out-of-pocket costs for the seller. If the aircraft is enrolled on an hourly cost maintenance program (from JSSI or an OEM) it is critical that the seller contact the program provider to understand allowances under their contract and the conditions under which the program coverage will be applied. All the maintenance programs I have observed over 30-plus years in the industry have not covered FOD and do not recognize work performed outside of the required scheduled maintenance checks. Maintenance programs vary greatly on how covered items are addressed when an engine enters a shop for a FOD event. Many programs will cover airworthiness findings unrelated to FOD, but elective inspections or borescope inspections that are out of sequence may not be eligible for coverage. The key is to contact your maintenance program provider and seek permission first. Don’t expect forgiveness later.

Understand Your Sales Agreement Before the Inspection

The sales agreement is the primary tool used to control the process and define the terms of the purchase. Simple sentences or phrases within the agreement are typically not that simple. Interpretation of these words in the contract can drag out or collapse a deal. For example, a term such as ‘discrepancies discovered’ versus ‘airworthiness discrepancies discovered’ can make a significant difference. In one scenario I witnessed, damage was discovered in an engine following a borescope inspection. The FOD was minor, and the OEM’s engineering team issued a technical variance allowing the condition to continue with no special changes to the maintenance schedule. When the owner was ready to sell the aircraft, the sales agreement stated any ‘discrepancies’ – and this condition was a discrepancy. It was outside of normal, but acceptable to the OEM with a release letter. The buyer felt strongly that there was a risk and challenged the seller to correct the problem, or the sale would not proceed per their agreement. The result was an unexpected ‘out-of-pocket’ expense to the seller that could have been avoided. 100

OPERATING T MAINTENANCE

Know How Much ‘Your’ Aircraft is Worth

It is important to set a reasonable expectation when planning to sell an aircraft. To do this, you should understand what your aircraft is worth prior to listing it for sale. Having an appraisal performed on your aircraft by an accredited appraiser is a valuable exercise. It can also be beneficial to keep tabs on the aircraft’s value with an appraiser as part of the life cycle plan of owning such an asset. The in-service market values of business jets today have been steady but not stellar and can change significantly from month-to-month. Just because there is a jet like yours ‘For Sale’ online for an asking price of $8m, you should not expect your aircraft will be worth the same, especially 60 or 90 days later. Depending on the current inventory, the length of time on the market, the interior layout and the maintenance condition of the aircraft, the value could easily swing drastically in two very different directions.

Hire an Expert

As a seller, you may feel that selling the aircraft without a Pre-Purchase Inspection is advantageous and that avoiding this process could save money. However, the risk of not conducting a Pre-Purchase Inspection usually outweighs the savings and could possibly lead to legal issues if the buyer feels you misrepresented the aircraft. It is good practice to consult or hire a technical expert to represent you during an aircraft sale. Before signing the sales agreement and approving the pre-purchase checklist, it is important to have a technician that is an expert on your aircraft type to work with you and the broker representative. They will be there to keep the prepurchase fair and balanced and help select the proper facility to perform the Pre-Purchase Inspection. All parties want to be protected, but there are reasonable limits as to how much should be reviewed and looked at, as well as any technical inspections that are essential for the pre-purchase.

Match the Logbooks With Maintenance Tracking System

A very simple yet important check to perform is comparing the aircraft maintenance status report to the actual maintenance entries in the aircraft records. This review could be another task you have the maintenance expert perform for you prior to listing the aircraft. There will always be a few errors, but most will be very minor. However, during the audit you don’t want to find a major documentation issue that will prolong the PrePurchase Inspection when the timing is critical. A major finding may create other concerns, ultimately driving the buyer or seller away from the deal. This could also ground the aircraft until the issue is corrected at considerable costs.

Minimized Risk

There are numerous tasks to consider when preparing to sell an aircraft in today’s market. But if you have these five areas covered, you will minimize your risk of ending up on the short-end of the transaction. T More information from www.jetsupport.com 102

OPERATING T SAFETY

How to Prepare an Emergency Response Plan What does it take to ensure a thorough Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is in place within your Flight Department? Mario Pierobon offers advice…

A

lthough the overall aim of safety management is to avoid emergency situations from occurring, Flight Departments are expected to perform at their very best even when such circumstances do occur. Thus, corporate Flight Departments have an obligation to arrange Emergency Response Plans (ERP) as part of their Safety Management System (SMS). Planning is about anticipating the possible scenarios and developing operating procedures that can be easily and clearly followed under those scenarios. The aim is to minimize the opportunity for additional damage and seamlessly return the department to normal operations. Emergency management complements what pilots already do as they learn to handle abnormal and emergency procedures. While the immediate aspects of an emergency are managed by the line operatives closest to the event (by means of emergency operating procedures), the wider organizational aspects are covered by the Emergency Response Plan.

104

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – March 2018

These may include items such as: Ensuring operational continuity Recovering employees from ‘places of distress’ Offering accommodation or care to any injured party (or their relatives) • Helping employees handle the emotions stemming from an emergency, and • Dealing with the media • • •

ERP Best Practices

When developing an ERP there are a few bestpractices that corporate Flight Departments should consider and embed in the plans themselves. The first is to plan well in advance. The ERP is a living document; it is not to be authored and filed away until needed. It should be periodically updated, based on any applicable learning experience stemming from the line environment. The ERP should feature all foreseeable scenarios that may need to be handled during an emergency situation, ideally in sequential fashion. It should

also detail the procedures to be followed under an emergency. It should be pointed out, however, that every emergency situation is different and thus the emergency procedures should allow flexibility to adjust to the actual situation.

Bringing the ERP to Life

The planning is only one part of the ERP. The other important part is the operational readiness that’s needed. One way to ensure operational readiness is to run simulations, creating an artificial scenario from those anticipated in the ERP manual and having the employees learn how to behave, per the applicable plans. The employees should be assessed on their performance in the simulation, details of their proficiency in managing the emergency situations should be recorded and simulations performed recurrently to ensure people remain current in their emergency response management abilities. Taking care of the wellbeing of employees should be among the main items to accomplish in an emergency situation. This activity is performed in many different ways, since there are many ways employee wellbeing can be compromised in an emergency. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

“...every emergency situation is different and thus the emergency procedures should allow flexibility to adjust to the actual situation.” www.AVBUYER.com

This importantly should include consideration of the immediate logistics of recovering traumatised employees from a place or a situation of distress. Likewise, employee wellbeing concerns dealing with the possible trauma suffered by staff after the event. And finally, managing the media during an emergency is also vital. Flight Departments experiencing an emergency may have to deal with all sorts of media, ranging from local to national media and from general readership to industry publications and websites. Regardless of the type of questions or concerns raised by the media, it’s important that a minimum protocol is followed that includes timely addressing all inquiries. When dealing with the media it is also important that all answers come from individuals who have a managerial role, and that these persons are capable of conveying a sense of genuine concern for those involved in the emergency event. Readiness to handle an emergency is an important safety function, and although it is hoped you will never have to utilize it, the leading corporate Flight Departments carefully prepare an ERP in case of emergency.

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 - Entry-Level & Light Jets – appears opposite, to be followed by Turboprops 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 145

A very satisfying year-end for the Boutsen broker team was the final and long-awaited sale close for Global XRS #9339 as well as the close on Falcon 7X #076.

TAG Farnborough Bizav Traffic Up 7%

TAG Farnborough Airport is experiencing“record growth,” based on movement numbers for January and a healthy increase in traffic last year, to 27,000 movements, reaching levels not surpassed since 2007. Last month saw a 17.9 percent year-over-year increase in overall business aircraft traffic and a 35 percent increase in bizliner movements. “It’s quite a remarkable story,” said TAG Farnborough Airport CEO Brandon O’Reilly. “We saw 7% movement growth in 2017 compared to 2016, driven by a number of factors. First is Brexit. People are looking for opportunities, and some see Brexit as an opportunity. Secondly, RAF Northolt [near Heathrow Airport] occasionally closes for work and is due to close again. This can drive more traffic to us. Finally, commercial aviation ultimately squeezes out Bizav. Over time we believe business aviation will migrate to airports focused on bizav." www.farnborough.com

Comlux does First Digital Maintenance on Hyundai’s BBJ

Comlux Completion‘s Indianapolis-based service center has successfully performed its first Digital Maintenance inspection on the Hyundai Motor Company's BBJ.

The Supervisors can assign tasks electronically and have a realtime live view of work progression. On the Project Management side, the Purchase Orders for parts and services can also be viewed real time against the specific maintenance tasks that required them for instantaneous reporting. This enhances the client experience during the event, as real time digital reporting enables seamless oversight throughout the maintenance event. www.comlux.com
