Editor’s

Welcome

Let’s Hear It for NBAA!

M

any readers of AvBuyer will be attending NBAA2015, the 68th annual gathering of the National Business Aviation Association since its founding as the Corporate Aircraft Owners Association in 1947. From the enormity of the event, now called BACE to link with other NBAA-supported Business Aviation conferences and exhibitions throughout the globe, it seems unimaginable that the Association’s first exhibition was held in a basement room of the Biltmore Hotel in New York City and featured a few tabletop displays. Only a handful of aviation managers attended, which contrasts significantly with the 26,000 aviators, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and vendors who are expected to be present in Las Vegas in Mid-November this year. In 1953 CAOA changed its name to the National Business Aircraft Association. Eventually the initials NBAA were identified with the use of General Aviation aircraft for business transportation throughout the USA as well as the rest the world. To reflect the true nature of the community it represents, in 1997 NBAA replaced the word ‘Aircraft’ with the word ‘Aviation’. Today, the Association focuses on representing the best interests of the Business Aviation community and promoting safety, efficiency and acceptance of this valuable form of air transportation. As attendees at NBAA2015 (as well as the thousands of AvBuyer readers in many nations worldwide who will not be in Las Vegas) all know, Business Aviation fulfills a need that is not met by the Scheduled Airlines. They also understand that the wonders of the Internet and the ubiquitous presence of cellphones are insufficient to satisfy the necessity to meet face-to-face with customers, business counterparts and partners. Nothing replaces being “there” when a concept is being introduced, a deal structured, or a contact signed. Furthermore, time is unique—it cannot be put in a deep freeze to be thawed at a later date and reused. Business Aviation leverages

the uniqueness of time—placing the right person or team at the right place at the right time, therefore maximizing the effectiveness of a firm’s personnel and an entrepreneur’s creativity. The public at large, however, knows very little about the benefits of Business Aviation. There is an ever-present need to spread the good news of our community. The NBAA does an outstanding job communicating the value of Business Aviation. Thus, the Association’s No Plane. No Gain program researches and communicates the many impressive examples of Business Aviation serving society. We urge AvBuyer readers to seek and use NBAA’s No Plane. No Gain publications whenever the opportunity arises to explain or clarify the value of Business Aviation to the unformed or critic.

In this Issue

In addition to AvBuyer’s core coverage of Boardroom and Flight Department topics, this month we feature Jodie Brown’s valuable insights for realizing the benefits of networking and contacts at NBAA. Her good advice, however, is useful throughout the year. Jay Mesinger provides his perspectives on advocating the value of Business Aviation, especially within emerging markets where buyers and sellers of business aircraft may not be sufficiently aware of the sophisticated nature of our community. Interviews conducted by Dave Higdon add context to AvBuyer’s coverage of the international marketplace for Business Aviation and business aircraft. And our Intelligence section rounds out the nature of community developments, thus presenting our readers with a comprehensive understanding of today’s market conditions and opportunities. We trust you will find this edition useful and informative. Jack Olcott Editorial Director & Publisher AvBuyer Your source for Business Aviation Intelligence

Business Aviation Market Trends

An Overview of the Market Heading into Q4 2015 As the dust – and the data – settle down on another year, what are

some of the key trends that are shaping the current and future direction of the industry, asks Rollie Vincent, Editor, Market Indicators.

W Rollie Vincent is President of Rolland Vincent Associates. His aviation market analysis is second to none, and he is the creator/director of the JETNET iQ program. With a solid background in market research, economics and statistics, he has more than 30 years of experience in business, regional and international aviation, including positions with Bombardier, Cessna, Learjet, Flexjet, and ICAO. Contact him via rvincent@rollandvincent.com

e believe that operational data are good sources of insight into industry direction, momentum, and trajectory. The latest flight operations results from the US Federal Aviation Administration suggest that cycles are up about 2-3% year-over-year (YOY) on a trailing twelve months (TTM) basis. On a more sobering note, European business jet cycles as monitored by Eurocontrol are down about 4-5% YOY TTM through September. With underlying fleet growth in both of these key markets (as new deliveries continuously far exceed the rate of aircraft retirements), the US results are probably mediocre at best while European flight activity is in a troubling downward spiral. The latest WINGX analyses of Eurocontrol data indicate that flight operations to/from Germany are flat but all other key markets are down substantially. Considering that the US and European business jet fleets have increased every year since the recessionary trough in 2009, the average number of cycles per aircraft has fallen across the fleet.

Detailed air traffic control data indicate that new and young aircraft are flying substantially more than are their older brethren. As a practical matter, preowned business aircraft that have not flown at all in the past few years (perhaps because they have been listed ‘For Sale’, parked and/or stored) may already be effectively out of service. Verifying the precise registration, maintenance, and even ‘For Sale’ status of such aircraft can be a difficult task, even for an experienced aircraft database researcher. Pre-owned aircraft transaction data – measuring whole retail sales – are essentially flat YOY through the first nine months of the year, while prices continue to drift generally downwards. From what we understand, the only exceptions to this rule are at either end of the price spectrum, where the Gulfstream G650 and the Pilatus PC-12 remain virtually unchallenged in their market segments.

New Orders

The Holy Grail for many industry watchers is new order activity. Orders are being held back by a continued on page 26

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE ❚ MARKET INDICATORS

number of factors, including challenging trade-in conditions, tightened credit standards, and limited capital as corporations focus on share-buyback and dividend issuance rather than capital investment. Quarterly earnings reports for Q3 2015 from the ‘Big 5’ business jet manufacturers were all in sequence for release to the investor and regulatory community soon after we went to press. These reports will be closely scrutinized for evidence of strengthening net new order activity. Of the Big 5, only Gulfstream and Textron Aviation had added modestly to their backlogs this year through Q2 2015. With Textron Aviation rumoured to be revealing a reconsidered Citation Longitude, another large cabin Citation, and a single-engine turboprop at NBAA2015, it is more than likely that Textron will ring up a flurry of orders in November and December. Bombardier’s delayed Global 7000 is nevertheless generating considerable customer attention, one of a number of designs that appears to have evolved from the inside out. Certification and initial deliveries of the Global 7000 have now slipped into 2018, joined by the Falcon 5X. We were still awaiting certification announcements for the Challenger 650 and the HondaJet as we went to press.

BizAv Activity - Europe There were 72,640 Business Aviation flight departures in Europe in September 2015 according to WingX. This was slightly more than in August, but 4% down on last year, and takes the YTD trend for 2015 to -1.4%. Business Aviation activity in Europe relapsed in September. The decline in the CIS market continued to sap the market, but in Map addition, flight activity was significantly down in the UK, Switzerland, Italy and Spain (see Map A). This may reflect the torrid financial markets and the darkening prospects for the global economy in the last couple of months. Western Europe, relatively speaking, was the most resilient region, down -2% but holding its own YTD. Southern European activity contracted sharply this

Forward-Looking

Going forward, we expect the marketplace for new business jets to be 700-800 per year for the next few years, sprinkled across more than 40 models and across eight OEMs (adding Honda, Pilatus and Cirrus). On the surface, this sounds to us like too many competitors, chasing too little volume, collectively at too little margin. If all of these new models actually begin delivering, there will be strong downward pressure on residual values of the aircraft these new models replace. All in all, we expect a busy Q4 2015 as organizations and individuals do their utmost to “make their numbers” before the bell tolls at midnight on December 31. For aircraft buyers, conditions continue to lean in their favour, with many a deal to be negotiated just in time to ring in the New Year. MI www.rollandvincent.com

month. Inbound traffic from the Middle East, US, Africa and CIS was down. The summer’s leisure activity has also been softer this year. There are still a few bright spots. Ultra-long range activity continues to grow, the super-midsize segment is reinvigorated with new aircraft, and the Phenom light jets are in great demand. Business jet activity nosedived this month, 8% down YOY. Turboprop flights fell slightly, while piston flights were up (especially AOC missions). Almost all the top 20 airports in Europe saw a decline in activity this month. Le Bourget had the largest drop, along with Ciampino and Farnborough. Vnukovo activity was substantially reduced. Biggin Hill and Oxford were up. MI www.wingx-advance.com

Nearly 62% of their flights are mostly or almost always for business, while 28.1% were an even mix of personal and business flying. Less than 10% of flights were categorized as mostly or almost always personal. According to the survey, the most attractive feature of an aircraft is economical operation, with range, cabin size, aircraft manufacturer and age of aircraft rounding out the top five. Baggage space was at the bottom of the list. Respondents’ business aircraft wish-list included the Pilatus PC-12 at the lower end and the Gulfstream G650 at the top end.

Nearly 52% of current business jet users plan to fly the same amount over the next 12 months, while nearly 40% say they will fly a bit more (32%) or a lot more (7.9%), according to the recently-released results of the Fifth Annual Readers' Choice Survey from AIN sister publication Business Jet Traveler. About half said they flew the same amount over the past year as during the year before, while 21.7% flew a bit more and 15% a bit less. Only 7.7% flew much less and 5.9% much more. Not surprisingly, survey respondents said ‘saving time’ was the number-one reason that they fly on business aircraft, 30

2.3% Annual BizAv Fleet Growth to 2025

The latest Business Aviation Fleet & MRO Forecast from Aviation Week Intelligence Network (AWIN) has indicated that the world’s western produced in-service business fleets will grow by 2.3% annually between 2016 and 2025, from 31,000 aircraft to almost 38,000. The report also forecasts that the 10year demand for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) in the Business Aviation market will be US$121.8bn. “The 2016 forecast expectations show that the North American market will dominate the world sales and MRO demand for years to come, and will also have a vibrant fleet replacement cycle with nearly 3,400 aircraft retirements and over 8,000 aircraft deliveries,” said Brian Kough, director, forecasts & analysis, AWIN. The report also showed that ultralong-range category jets will grow fleet share the fastest, along with super-mid-size category aircraft growing nearly as fast, ending the year 2025 with nearly 3,200 aircraft. Very light jets will grow rapidly to over 1,500 aircraft over the next 10 years. China, with a small base fleet, is predicted to grow the fastest fleet at 9% and in MRO requirements despite economic and political pressures, while the largest market - North America - will grow at 2.3% rate. North America’s in-service fleet share will remain constant during the forecast period at 63.5% while Western Europe will increase its share to 12.5% of the world’s fleet. Latin America and Africa will lose fleet share, with Eastern Europe and China gaining share. The report suggested that the top five aircraft deliveries are expected to be King Air 300/350, Pilatus PC-12, Gulfstream G650, Challenger 300/350 and Phenom 300 between 2016-2025.

BIZAV INTELLIGENCE ❚ MARKET INDICATORS

Rockwell Collins: Tough BizAv Conditions Rockwell Collins expects its corporate jet business to shrink over the next year, marking another setback in the sector's sluggish recovery, saying it expected a mid-single-digit decline in sales to the sector in its fiscal year to Sept. 30, 2016, from a year earlier. The company's 2016 financial guidance also fell short of analysts' expectations. The sales weakness of smaller business jets has spread in recent months to larger airplanes, notes Rockwell, and flight activity has stalled in many markets, with US domestic operations offering one of the few pockets of growth. Rockwell expects production cuts to be focused among smaller and mid-sized jets. Its downbeat outlook comes as business jet makers such as Bombardier, Gulfstream, Embraer and the Textron finalize their production plans for 2015. Bombardier, the market leader by revenue, has already cut production of some models and shelved a planned new jet, laying-off around 1,000 staff. General Dynamics, which owns Gulfstream, has been more bullish on its order pipeline in recent months, though it may shift production resources to new models such as the large-cabin G650 that have long waiting lists. The slowdown in emerging market economies has hampered sales of new and used jets in markets including Russia and China, but the big US domestic market has also been sluggish in recent months. "While the decline in Business

Aircraft Maintenance Condition and Price An Asset Insight Index analysis conducted on September 28th, 2015 covering 91 fixed-wing models and 1,826 aircraft listed ‘For Sale’ revealed an “Excellent” asset Quality Rating notes Tony Kioussis. Maintenance Rating (ATC Score): Asset Technical Condition Score (an aircraft’s rating relative to its Optimal Maintenance Condition, achieved the day it came off the production line) decreased by 3.7 AI2 basis points, registering 5.383 versus August’s 5.420, on the ATC Score scale of -5 to 10. Financial Rating (ATFC Score): Asset Technical Financial Condition Score (evaluating scheduled maintenance event cost based on the aircraft Maintenance Rating) decreased 9.4 AI2 basis points, on the zero to 10 ATFC Score scale, registering 5.151 versus August’s 5.245.

Aviation will make for a challenging year for our commercial systems business, we remain focused on executing the business to drive long-term growth in both operating margin and cash flow," Chief Executive Kelly Ortberg summarized. MI www.rockwellcollins.com

AVIC Plans GA Industrial Bases A recent report in China Daily states that the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) has begun building what it hopes will be the first of many industrial bases dedicated to serving the country's GA market. With an investment of approximately $3.1bn from AVIC, the base will be dedicated to manufacturing aircraft as well as research and training. It should be completed within eight years, said AVIC chairman Lin Zuoming. "AVIC will build 50 such complexes across China to cover 90 percent of the country's population in order to build a national light aircraft operation network," Lin promised. With the opening up of China's GA market and the development of advanced equipment manufacturing, there appears to be enormous potential for aviation bases in China. General Aviation aircraft, ranging from helicopters to private jets, are restricted to flying in low-altitude airspace below 1,000 meters in China, but policymakers are mulling loosening that regulation.

Maintenance Exposure (ATFE Value): Asset Technical Financial Exposure Value (an aircraft’s accumulated maintenance financial exposure) worsened/increased 1.6% in September, rising $23k to $1.438m. Excepting Medium Jets, all groups reported some level of Quality Rating decrease over the past month. By aircraft group, asset quality was as follows: Large Jets: ‘Excellent’ asset quality – the best among the four groups – but slightly down from last month’s ‘Outstanding’ rating; Maintenance Exposure increased/worsened by $98k, but the figure remained better than (i.e. below) the 12-month average. Medium Jets: ‘Excellent’ asset quality, registering the second highest figure among the four groups, along with a slight Maintenance Exposure improvement. Small Jets: ‘Excellent’ overall asset quality, although down from last month’s figure; Maintenance Exposure increased/worsened about 4.5% to $769k, but remained better than (below) the 12-month $892k average. Aircraft Index see Page 176


MarketIndicators .qxp_Layout 1 20/10/2015 16:46 Page 5

MARKET INDICATORS ❚ BIZAV INTELLIGENCE Turboprops: Asset quality registered the lowest figure since March, and dropped the group’s rating to ‘Good’ from ‘Very Good’. Maintenance Exposure posted a $14k degradation/increase to $577k, but remained near the group’s 12-month low figure of $560k.

Exposure to Ask Price (ETP) Ratio

Spread in the ETP Ratio for the aircraft tracked by Asset Insight narrowed by another 68 percentage points (see Table B), and the average Ratio increased less than one point registering 51.6%, just off last month’s best figure for 2015. We consider an ETP Ratio (the aircraft’s Maintenance Exposure divided by its Ask Price) above 40% to represent excessive Asset Exposure in relation to Ask Price (see Table C). While the industry average has exceeded the 40% level since March 2014, this month’s ETP Ratio continues to be encouraging (see Table D). The drop in Ask Prices, although relatively minor, was the primary cause for the ETP Ratio degradation. •

Large Jets: This segment recorded a small ETP Ratio change during the past month, improving from 33.9% to 33.3% and generating the lowest/best Ratio among all groups. The aircraft tracked also registered a slight Ask Price decrease, from $16.15m to $15.81m, below the group’s 12-month average. Medium Jets: With another reduction, albeit minor, the group’s ETP Ratio registered a new best/lowest figure for this year, decreasing from 53.4% to 53.1%. The group’s average Ask Price maintained its 12-month low figure, $3.6m. As pointed out last month, prospective Buyers should take note, quality assets at attractive prices trade quickly – especially as we move into Q4. Small Jets: This group registered a 4.1% increase/worsening in ETP Ratio, rising 2.8% to 70.8%. Average Ask Price increased nearly 4.9% to $2.11m, a record high figure for Small Jets, but could not overcome the increase in Maintenance Exposure. It will be interesting to see if transaction values keep pace with the higher Ask Prices or if Maintenance Exposure, or other market forces, negatively influence deal pricing. Turboprops: The group’s 45.0% ETP Ratio, second best among all sectors, worsened from last month’s 43.3%.

Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Ask Price fell 1.8% to $1.56m, just below the group’s 12-month average. Turboprops have been trading within a relatively narrow range for some time, and we anticipate Buyers and Sellers to become single-minded over the next few weeks, as both parties become infected by end-of-year transactional motivation. Market Summary Asset quality fell slightly below August’s peak figures, but the overall Quality Rating for aircraft tracked by Asset Insight remained ‘Excellent’. Ask Prices have generally increased over the past ninety days, although the gap between www.AVBUYER.com

Ask Prices and Sales Transaction Values merits close scrutiny. Prospective Buyers should carefully analyse an aircraft’s maintenance for their anticipated ownership period plus a couple of years beyond. Prospective Sellers would be well advised to monitor aircraft quality for listed assets, along with their own aircraft’s maintenance exposure, if they hope to optimize value. Market conditions continue to be challenging, but good values are available to savvy Buyers, and Sellers who understand how to leverage their aircraft’s Maintenance Equity. ❚ MI www.assetinsightinc.com November 2015 – AVBUYER MAGAZINE

eal gross domestic product (the value of the goods and services produced by the United States’ economy, less the value of the goods and services used up in production, adjusted for price changes) increased at an annual rate of 3.9 percent in Q2 2015, according to the third estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In Q1, real GDP increased 0.6 percent. The BEA report shows that US GDP is above the 3.0 percent growth mark (when Business Aviation tends to do well). The third estimate of the US GDP release showed the economy grew for a fifth straight quarter (in Q4 2014 real GDP increased 2.2 percent, as reflected in Table A, left) and followed some really strong growth in Q2 and Q3 2014.

Chart C: Business Turboprops - North America September 2015

As depicted in Tables D and E, right, the United States has the largest number of business jets and business turboprops in North America. (The total numbers of aircraft that are wholly-owned, shared and fractionally owned are also represented in each table, along with the numbers leased.) In fact, leased business jets make up 9.2% of the total fleet of 12,791 business jets in operation within North America, and 4.5% of the 8,649 business turboprops. Note that Mexico is ranked second in the business jet, and Canada second in the business turboprop fleets.

Summary

The Business Aviation Market is driven by strong economic activity, corporate profitability, wealth creation, and business investment. The US economy continues to have wide quarterly swings in this current recovery period that has not shown consistently strong economic activity to sustain Business Aviation growth.

The June 2015 US projected GDP growth is 2.1% for 2015 but is expected to improve to be 3.1% in 2016. Canada is expecting a 1.6% GDP growth in 2015 and 2.4% in 2016. Mexico, meanwhile, is expecting the highest projection for 2015 among the Top 3 countries in North America at 2.6% for 2015 and 3.2% for 2016. While the US holds the leading position in North America for the number of business jets and Business Turboprops, the top 3 Countries in North America have 98% of the total business jet fleet and 96% of the business turboprop fleet in operation.

ew aircraft deliveries aren't exactly on a robust growth curve these days, although the overall business aircraft fleet continues to expand. While those new aircraft deliveries that do occur help the expansion, most of the reported growth comes as new operators emerge in the US. Asking prices for used business aircraft in the US are heading north as the US economy improves. Europe and Asia, however, are in a 44

state of economic malaise (by comparison to the United States). Thus it makes sense that preowned and reconditioned business aircraft from outside the USA offer a faster, lower-cost, and attractive entry point into business aircraft ownership, even when they’re based overseas. Brokers and dealers appear to have mixed thoughts on the matter, but analysts are more precise. Following is a sampling of their reactions.

Rollie Vincent notes that the US recently reported its 22nd consecutive month of GDP growth and similar growth in operations. For example, he noted that from the end of 2010 through midyear 2015, US business jet cycles are up 11.3% and real GDP is up 10.5%. “While Business Aviation has a vital role to play in emerging markets, the opportunities for using these assets most effectively and productively are primarily Stateside at this time,” Vincent notes. Although not yet quite as liquid as capital flows, the movements of business aircraft tend to be quite fluid, he adds. “Stakeholder organizations that can see though the smoke and haze – and there are many – are taking notice of opportunities and seizing the high-ground.

Even before the signs of slowdown began to appear on the China landscape, analyst Brian Foley was noting that the former lifeline market of South America was experiencing a cool-down. “While acting as an industry life buoy during the worldwide financial crisis, this market has since entered a cyclic downturn that will be more pronounced than previous ones,” Foley predicts. In analyzing South America aircraft fleet data from provider AMSTAT, Foley noted that private jets, turboprops and helicopters all show a continuous decline in year-over-year fleet growth rates. From growth near, or better than doubledigits just four years ago, in the past year that expansion rapidly declined into low single-digits, which Foley attributes to a variety of factors that he doubts will soon be rectified. Debt, inflation, weakened currencies, minimal or declining GDP growth and politics have all contributed to the decline, he notes. “The final hit, with perhaps the greatest implication, is the drop-off in commodity prices, including around a 50 percent drop in oil prices over the past year. As a region with an economy heavily dependent on natural resources, the full effects have yet to be seen and will linger throughout these economies for years.” So where does the market go from here? “It’s my thesis that the fleet will eventually contract over the next few years with equipment either being idled or sold to more prosperous regions of the world such as the US,” Foley explains. And that isn't the only market change Foley and others see pulling aircraft from overseas into the US fleet…

China: Growth Decline Throttles Back Large-Cabin Demand

The other key factor influencing the business aircraft market is China's recent economic slowdown. Its ostensibly overheated GDP growth of recent years is losing steam this year, and the nation's stock market is down by about 50 percent from its high earlier in 2015. That decline – and its ripple effect – contributed to the recent slowing of demand for large-cabin business jets. Yes, the segment that weathered the Great Recession by growing is now seeing some headwinds. “The market for these intercontinental aircraft with price tags in the $35m-75m range were barely fazed by the 2009 worldwide financial crisis,” Foley noted. “Conversely, sales of smaller, more modest jets declined by two-thirds, forcing planemakers in that segment to halve staffing www.AVBUYER.com

(and in one case fold). The split personality between big and small is showing objective evidence of change, and is in fact reversing.” Foley's analysis of GAMA shipment numbers found that while overall deliveries in 2014 increased by 6.5 percent over 2013, small and medium jets drove the expansion with growth of 11.9 percent and large-cabin jets declined by 2.8 percent. Comparing the first half of 2015 with 2014 reveals an even more-pronounced trend comparison with 3.6 percent growth in deliveries of small and medium jets, but a 12.7 percent decline in large-cabin jet deliveries.

What It All Means…

From a sampling of analysts, brokers and dealers, the advice for shoppers seems to be broadbased. “Some good deals can be had in overseas markets where some operators are reacting to their national problems the way many companies in the US reacted in 2008-2009,” noted one broker. Nevertheless, overseas transactions require more effort and expertise than domestic deals, thus creating even greater need for professional handling. A must - according to experienced international dealers and brokers - is the need to secure expertise to handle an on-site aircraft audit, as well as a survey of the equipment and its condition beyond the usual pre-purchase inspection. Of course a full review of all logs and maintenance

records is also a must. Depending on the country, log entries may require a set of “multilingual eyes” fluent in the language used and trained in aviation-speak. US dollars remain the standard currency for aircraft transactions, and while US buyers may be able to avoid the impact of currency fluctuations by fixing the contract in dollars, an overseas seller may insist on some flexibility to allow for changes in the dollar's value against the buyer's exchange. Be prepared for this. And be ready for the paperwork required to import an aircraft into the US; whether it's coming to the US for the first time or returning to the country, the process will be a multi-agency task that is best approached with experts on your side.

Patience Can Pay Off...

The analysts, brokers and dealers consulted during the writing of this article seemed to be in consensus on one point above all others: Be patient if looking at an overseas deal. As deliberate and complex as business turbine transactions are domestically, they can be even more complex when the parties involved are overseas sellers or buyers, financial institutions, and governments that insist on tracking the international movement of aircraft between citizens of different countries. Expect the deal to take time – and help yourself by having your finances lined-up and ready to go when you start the process. Unless - or until - the economy changes direction globally, there's little chance of an upheaval that will dramatically alter the landscape of the business aircraft market as it currently exists. ❚ 46

High-Flyers:

John and Martha King, Aviation’s Living Legends John and Martha King, founders of the King Schools that are spread across the US and cyberspace, have been flying together for 45 years. Inducted as a couple into the International Aerospace Hall of Fame, these industry luminaries discuss their successful partnership with Rani Singh.

he Kings hit upon the idea of creating ground school courses for pilots in 1975 after another business they started went bankrupt. They decided to spend time doing what, for them, was fun—building their new business from a spare bedroom in their home. Forty years later, their company, King Schools, Inc. operates out of a dedicated complex in San Diego, California and has its own video and software production facility. Millions of courses have been delivered, and the company website proudly states that “Through intimate video instruction John and Martha King have taught more pilots than anyone in the history of aviation—for many years teaching more than half the pilots in the United States learning to fly...pilots throughout the world know John and Martha and regard them as their personal aviation mentors...” As pilots, they’ve flown around the world via the length of Russia, flying everywhere except Antarctica. In 1994, John and Martha became the first and only couple to hold every category and class of FAA rating on their pilot and instructor certificates. Martha is the only woman to achieve this complete ratings sweep. And yet, for all of their remarkable achievements, this is still a humble couple. Operating a Dassault Falcon 10, Martha and John told AvBuyer, “Our airplane requires two pilots, and we get great joy flying as a co-ordinated team. It converts business trips into a real pleasure.”

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

Making an Older Jet Work

Older airplanes tend to incur higher operating cost, so how do the Kings make the Falcon 10 cost-efficient for business purposes? “It’s a trade-off,” notes John, “because there’s a capital cost. The Falcon cost is very low. The operating costs are a little higher. We’re not big volume users, and that’s a good trade-off for us. It probably works out the same as for everybody else when you’re done.” “One of the reasons the Falcon 10 is nice to fly is because Dassault has built a lot of redundancy into it,” adds Martha, who also handles the maintenance side of the jet. “There are enough backups, so you can operate using a minimum equipment list. “Because we don’t put a lot of hours on it, all of our maintenance - almost without exception - is scheduled maintenance. It’s not surprise maintenance. If you tried to put a lot of hours on an airplane this old, you’d have a lot of down time.” “In that case, the operating costs would be more important,” John contributes. “In our case, the cost of having the airplane available is less because it’s an older airplane, so the capital cost is not very high. If we were going to operate a lot of hours, it probably wouldn’t work, but it works well in our case.” As for reliability, Martha explains, “We’ve never been stopped on a trip because of unscheduled maintenance. We do have scheduled maintenance of course, at regular intervals, but there’s enough flexibility in the timing of the maintenance program ! with the Falcon that we can work it around our Aircraft Index see Page 176

trips without any problem. Sometimes we decide which trips we’re willing to make based on whether or not we know the airplane’s going to be down.” “Most of the time we’re seeing people,” clarifies John. “So we’ll either schedule the trip around the maintenance or the maintenance around the trip so they’re not in conflict with each other.”

Easing Travel Burdens

“The Falcon is not a money-saving over the airlines,” Martha explains. “But what it does do is make us willing to take trips; to meet and make connections with people that we wouldn’t be willing to do if we had to go through the wear-and-tear of being on the airlines. It makes us available for trips when we wouldn’t be available otherwise. “We enjoy the trips, and are therefore more willing to make them,” she adds. “We can be on the telephone with a partner company or someone who is a big customer at four in the afternoon on, say a Wednesday - particularly if they’re in the middle of the country, and we can say that we’ll be there with our team before lunch on the Thursday. And we know that we can do that because we don’t have to worry about whether there are airline schedules available to facilitate the plan.” John, like his wife, is very enthusiastic about the flying. “It makes everyone willing to take trips. We do a lot of business with Cessna in Wichita. We can leave in the morning from our base in San Diego, have lunch and an all-afternoon meeting in Wichita, get in the airplane, come home and have everyone back with their families again for dinner. So everybody’s actually more willing to make these trips because it’s less wear and tear on them too. “We often take six passengers with us. We can fly half way across the US and our folks can still be home with their families in the evening.” Martha is on an NBAA Committee that meets about every three months requiring her to travel to

Washington DC with regularity, while John is on a working group with the FAA in Washington DC. “We go back several times a year for that - so we head up to Washington about every other month,” John outlines. “Once again, we probably wouldn’t be serving on these committees if we didn’t have a fun/trouble-free way to go back and forth. If we had to go on the airlines, we probably wouldn’t be willing to do it. It lets us go places and be with people we wouldn’t be with otherwise.”

Psychology of BizAv

a negotiation

There’s a psychological advantage to a business jet, according to Martha. “It’s the ultimate form of freedom, and it helps when you’re negotiating. “We never have to rush a negotiation – it helps when you don’t have to make a flight on someone else’s schedule. It puts you in charge of the negotiation. It tends to make it more even - no partnership works unless everyone is better off. It’s more civil to make a better deal for both parties.” Indeed, if a dinner invitation is suggested following negotiations, they are usually in a position to accept. Illustrating something of the enjoyment that comes from their use of Business Aviation, John reveals that the jet is set up with headsets for every passenger, and everyone can hear what is going on. Since mostly they carry pilots, the flights are more enjoyable. “We make special relationships with people because the trips are so much fun. People want to see us, and it enhances the element of trust.” The Kings say that they notice the industry is changing. Post-recession, if there has been a slight dip in demand from courses by beginner pilots, the Kings are selling more courses to professional pilots. This famous couple is staying on the upside, and we hope they will stay flying high for many years to come. ❚

Benchmarking for Business Aviation Make Sure You’re Using the Right Measures… Benchmarking is much more than asking a golfing friend questions about his Flight Department, notes David Wyndham. It is a disciplined approach to measuring performance.

ou cannot manage what you do not measure. Benchmarking is a measurement against a norm or set of standards. It is a management tool for assessing an organization’s performance against its stated goals. Internal benchmarks relate to key performance indicators established by management. External benchmarks are measurements against the performance and norms of firms in the same or related businesses. You can benchmark against an industry standard or benchmark among peers. Benchmarking against an industry standard is

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

www.AVBUYER.com

helpful to see how your company compares to an external set of best practices or measures. You need to know the basis for the standard since measurements should compare apples with apples, not oranges (so to speak). For example, benchmarking against a standard set of aircraft operating costs is common. To be meaningful, however, you must know how the standard is calculated and what are the assumptions. When benchmarking with other Flight Departments, ask your peer to explain how his or her metrics aligned with the means you use to calculate costs. ! Aircraft Index see Page 176

BOARDROOM ❚ OWNERSHIP

Peer-to-peer benchmarking can be useful when the peer group is comparable. A manufacturing company benchmarking with a pharmaceutical company may not yield a fair comparison, however. What are the organizational, cultural and strategic elements of the peer group? Are they all public companies? Does everyone in the group fit in well organizationally? No two companies can compare exactly, but vast differences among peer companies can lead to misinformation or poorly stated and understood benchmarks.

tency year-to-year is needed in order to compare performance over time. A benchmark’s definition may need to change to reflect changes in how business is done, but be careful that the usefulness of the historical trend remains intact. (4) Perhaps the most important element of effective benchmarking is what you do with the data. Benchmarking should lead to action, or at least the contemplation of action. If you benchmark salaries and find that your department wages are below the national average or below your peer group average, you may wish to look at increasing salaries and benefits (especially if you have high employee turnover). Being above or below the norm in a benchmark should lead to the question ‘why?’

Four Elements of Good Benchmarking

(1) Benchmarks must be relevant. Average passengers carried is a great measure for a passenger shuttle operation - but if the business aircraft is used to carry the CEO and family as part of a security program, load factor is of little relevance. Also, what you benchmark should be impactful as it relates to your corporate goals or industry practices. Who can authorize the use of the aircraft? Do you have chargebacks for the use of the aircraft and if so, what are they based on? How your Flight Department compares to others can be insightful only if the measures and benchmarks used align with your own organization’s goals. (2) A benchmark should be simple to collect and measure. For example, you and your doctor feel that you are carrying too much body fat. You can either take a number of body measurements with calipers, do a bioelectrical impedance analysis, or you can just step on a scale. Which measurement will help you lose weight most effectively and with the least effort? Your Flight Department already counts things like hours flown, passengers carried, destinations served, etc. Comparing those figures with the performance of a Flight Department in the same region of the country and in a similar business is a simple way of assessing performance. (3) A benchmark measure also needs to be consistent. When you are benchmarking things like costs, how they are calculated and compared must be consistently measured with the same yardstick. For example, what you are paying for aviation fuel can be misleading. Operator A buys fuel at its local airport fixed base operator (FBO) at $4.50 per gallon. Operator B just installed a private fuel farm and pays wholesale $2.50 per gallon. Excluded from Operator B’s fuel figure is the cost of the fuel storage tank and fuel truck used to refuel the aircraft. Consis60

WHAT IS YOUR KEY BENCHMARKING TOOL FOR MEASURING?

Aligning with Company Goals

Your company’s strategic goals and mission determine how you benchmark. A utility company with nuclear powerplants has one aircraft and crew on standby 24-hours a day in case of an emergency. They have a different requirement for how many pilots to employ versus a company that uses their business aircraft during normal business hours, five days per week. You need to determine benchmark criteria that relate to the outcomes your company wants to achieve. Benchmarking can be a powerful tool that can help your flight department stay focused on the corporation’s goals and provide feedback critical to improving the quality of the services provided. ❚ Are you looking for more Business Aviation Ownership articles?

Advocacy in all its forms—from emphasizing the advantages of Business Aviation to having an aviation professional assist you in buying or selling business aircraft—is not sufficiently embraced in many emerging and international markets, however.

understandable why some owners fail to value advocacy, particularly in the international marketplace where the use of business aircraft is relatively new. As many emerging markets became interested in business aircraft, the appetite of the buyer was to buy new. Thus they logically gravitated to the OEMs to source and buy aircraft. There was no perceived need to hire a person or company to assist with the transaction; such a move was considered as adding an extra layer of cost to the process. Paying a broker did not seem to add value. The economic tides have turned, and now some international buyers have become sellers. But they still may not recognize the value added by professional representation in the marketplace for business aircraft. Furthermore, international owners new to Business Aviation may not have communicated with, or had the benefit of a relationship with a broker. Locating someone who could serve as an advocate may seem overwhelming. An interesting dilemma about emerging market prospects is helping the buyer or seller understand the importance of representation. Brokers dealing with emerging markets also might benefit from a primer in advocacy. Advocating the advantages of Business Aviation results in a partnership between broker and client. Even in more mature markets where buying and selling business aircraft has been a mainstay for decades, advocacy and expert representation are essential.

From Theory to Practice

We have an internal document that is 15 pages long, and single spaced I might add. This process list is made up of literally hundreds of individual actions regarding how we can best represent—i.e., advocate for—our clients. In our opinion, the list represents the customary items needed to successfully market, contract, inspect and close on an aircraft for sale. The list is no shorter for an acquisition. Trying to skip a step or short-circuit a transaction process is just not practical for a successful outcome. Our company has not cornered the market on process steps. There are usual and customary practices that are utilized by sales professionals that understand the need for accuracy and for thoroughness in a sale or acquisition. For example, consider the following list: •

Specification Development: It is imperative that correct specifications are used when marketing an aircraft. Even if purchased new, the development of these specifications is critical to a successful outcome. Usual and Customary Contract Development: Aviation contracts are often very different from what a non-aviation transaction attorney is accustomed to drafting or contemplating. The AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

only survivable representation and warranty is that of good title. No other warranties have a life after purchase. Other contract items of critical importance include where the aircraft will be inspected (the seller’s country or the buyers), who pays for the movement to the inspecting facility/country, and what are the terms of the deposit? • Inspection Protocol: Specify what is accepted in this very important phase of the sale and how invasive the inspection can be. Identify what guides will be used to plan the inspection and what will be the inspection protocol. • Discrepancy Rectification: Establish who decides to arbitrate the items that are deemed out of tolerance. Define the correct methodology used for the discussion. • Closing Location: Agree upon the closing location and the conditions surrounding that aspect of the transaction, such as who pays to move the aircraft and where it will be accepted. The bullet points listed above touch on just a few of the very important details needed to transact a purchase or a sale. Hence the advantages of having an advocate participate on your behalf are obvious—or at least they should be obvious. To think one can successfully conclude a purchase or sale of a business aircraft without a knowledgeable advisor is flawed or wishful thinking. It simply is not logical. Take the time to ask the probing questions, and do not be afraid to hire someone to guide this process. Find someone you can trust. Hiring an advocate may seem superfluous, particularly for owners who purchased their aircraft new from an OEM. But the value of expert representation is essential and well worth the investment. ❚ Are you looking for more Business Aviation Ownership articles?

involved,

any companies that own and operate business aircraft attempt to offset some costs by holding the aircraft out for charter at times when it is not otherwise being utilized by the owner. Such mixed utilization of aircraft can affect the depreciation schedule of the asset. As previously mentioned, aircraft other than helicopters, used in commercial activities or contract carrying of passengers and freight by air generally may be depreciated under MACRS over seven years, and aircraft used for qualified business purposes or for the production of income, and all depreciable helicopters, may be depreciated under MACRS over a recovery period of five years. Consequently, when a fixed-wing aircraft (i.e., other than a helicopter) is used part of the time in commercial or contract carrying of passengers and freight by air, and part of the time for other qualified business purposes or for the production of income, questions concerning the appropriate MACRS recovery period are likely to arise.

‘Primarily Used’ Standard

Treasury regulations specify that when property is used for different purposes at various times in such a manner that the property could potentially be classified into more than one asset class, the property shall be included in the asset class for the activity in which the property is primarily used. Property is to be classified according to the primary use to which the property is put, even though the activity in which the property is used is insubstantial in relation to all of the activities of the taxpayer. In addition, the asset class of an aircraft that is subject to a lease is determined as if the aircraft were owned by the lessee. Although not further defined in the regulations, the “primarily used” standard appears to suggest that a fixed-wing aircraft will be depreciated under MACRS over a seven-year recovery period if the proportion of the time it is used in commercial activities exceeds the proportion of time that it is used for other qualified business purposes or for the production of income. Conversely the same aircraft will be depreciated under MACRS over a five year recovery period if the proportion of the time it is used for other qualified business purposes or for the production of income exceeds the proportion of time that it is used in commercial or contract carrying of passengers and freight by air. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

and care must be taken to minimize or eliminate the consequences of improper filings.” Partial Recapture

For purposes of determining the appropriate asset class for a mixed-use aircraft, it is necessary to determine the primary use of the aircraft during each taxable year that the aircraft is in service. If at any time the primary use of the aircraft changes, it may be necessary to convert from one depreciation schedule to another. This can result in a partial recapture event if, for example, an aircraft is used primarily for business purposes in the first year or so after being placed in service (and is therefore depreciated under MACRS over a five year recovery period), but in later years is used primarily in commercial or contract carrying of passengers and freight by air (and therefore must be depreciated under MACRS over a seven year recovery period). Depreciation is highly useful in reducing the taxes resulting from income generation. But the rules are involved, and care must be taken to minimize or eliminate the consequences of improper filings. The Internal Revenue Service expects filings that involve depreciation to comply with all applicable tax codes. Thus the reader is advised to seek qualified council in all matters related to taxes associated with the use of a business aircraft. ❚ Are you looking for more Business Aviation Tax articles?

The Challenge of Drones What Do They Have to Do With your Business Aviation Operation?

A recent drone accident that caused injuries to a bystander increased pressure on the FAA to regulate this exploding technology and raised questions regarding how the insurance industry should address the risks presented by unmanned aerial vehicles, says Stuart Hope.

yrics from the 1970s hit song by Stealer’s Wheel, Stuck in the Middle With You, aptly describes the position the FAA and the insurance industry find themselves in with regard to drones. Anyone with $100 or more can buy a drone with a camera and be flying it the next day thanks to the sophisticated technology incorporated within these units. Your company might not own or operate a drone, but you should be concerned that unmanned aerial vehicles are allowed to have access to the airspace used by your company aircraft. In spite of their diminutive size, beware that these popular devices are another “aircraft” to see and avoid when operating at low altitudes.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

www.AVBUYER.com

There is no requirement for operators to have any flying experience or knowledge of rules governing the use of airspace before they go outside and launch their new toy. There will always be reckless operators in a given population of motorized vehicle owners, and drones are no exception. With the only barrier to entry being the price tag, you can and do have children of all ages flying these highly capable machines, possibly near airports where you might be operating. To date, the FAA has only addressed commercial drone operators, remaining silent on non-commercial operations - classifying them as hobby/recreational activities and mostly out of their area of responsibility.

THERE HAVE BEEN 650 CLOSE CALLS REPORTED BY PILOTS SO FAR THIS YEAR, COMPARED TO 238 FOR ALL OF 2014.

would not get much of their attention, but evidence is building that this segment cannot be ignored for long considering the exponential sales growth of drones (over 1 million sold in the last two years) and the resulting accidents that have occurred. Recent reports of drones crashing in sports stadiums (US Open), smuggling contraband into prisons, spying on neighbors, and most menacing, creating near misses with aircraft, have increased public awareness of a potential problem. There have been 650 close calls reported by pilots so far this year, compared to 238 for all of 2014. Many insurance companies are experimenting with, and investing in this emerging technology. They have created new policy forms for drones in an effort “not to get left behind”. One of the perils of an insurer being a pioneer in a disruptive technology is evaluating unknown or unanticipated losses. Many exclusions to all insurance policies were created after an insurance company paid a loss that was never anticipated nor intended to be covered.

Underwriting Challenges

One of the big hurdles to underwriting drones is the ‘pilot’. With conventional aircraft, there are FAA certificates and ratings that must be acquired by an individual in order to operate in US Airspace. With a drone, however, literally anyone can buy one and start operating (non-commercially) with very few restrictions. An underwriter accustomed to rating a risk based on a pilot’s experience is lost when dealing with most drone ‘pilots’. How do you determine which drone operator is a good risk without any reliable way to obtain qualified information on who is actually flying the vehicle? (Of course if we own one, our friends will also want to fly it.) Most insurers have resolved the pilot issue 70

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

for now by not offering coverage on the physical drone, only liability insurance. They do not restrict who the owner can allow to fly the drone under the theory since there is no physical damage coverage, the owner will be careful with whom he allows to fly it since it is his money at stake. In addition, insurers only offer low limits of liability for this class of business. With insured values as low as $100, how can an insurer charge enough money to make drone insurance profitable and worthwhile? The early players are banking on handling much of the processing electronically. If a human is to be involved in the underwriting, the policy will need to reach a much higher premium level to make sense. Insurance companies have chosen to stay out of the single ship drone market (there’s no money in it) and instead will consider a possible fleet policy for a large operator or insuring the products liability of the drone manufacturer.

Work to be Done

Much remains to be sorted out, and although I am normally against further government intervention to sort out our problems, with the “clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right” who are flying these units, hopefully the FAA will create some structure of control and enforcement of ALL drones without a tragic accident occurring to motivate them. So how should you respond to the potential threat of drones? Consult your broker at your earliest convenience to be sure that your firm is covered for risks that a drone might present. ❚ Are you looking for more Business Aviation Insurance articles?

internet. Also, when on the ground, USB connections or wireless connectivity allow easy and fast downloads at the aircraft. Flight data are usually encrypted and compressed for security and ease. While FOQA information is unprocessed except for being desensitized, Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) provides meaningful results for analysis of cause, for example. For both data and communications over Data Comm, on May 27, 2014 the FAA announced a security control audit of Data Comm to ensure that proactive protection methods are being implemented. This includes contingencies up to and including a complete loss of Data Comm services. Furthermore and related, on March 2, 2015 the FAA issued a policy statement regarding an existing recording rule that was well received by operators and gained widespread industry support. Part 121 and 135 aircraft Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR) are currently required to capture Data Comm as well as existing voice activity. Many legacy aircraft, however, could not comply, and the industry was not updating to the new CPDLC equipment. Under this new policy, the CVR recording requirements are separated between aircraft built before December 6, 2010 and those built after that date.

Real time Aircraft Condition Monitoring (ACM) is available from several avionics suppliers through aircraft OEM programs. Using ACARS or Communication Management Units (CMUs) via Satcom, in-flight performance and maintenance events as well as aircraft performance trends can be monitored in real time, on the ground. This process enables troubleshooting and planning in preparation for the aircraft’s return to the ground. More significantly, ACM can enable flight departments to arrange service or repairs at remote locations, including internationally. A problem detected in-flight and condition (repair) codes transmitted to the ground establish an opportunity for the operator or his maintenance provider to position equipment and resources at forward locations, especially during extended international trips. Additionally, EFBs that generate or serve as a central point for significant information, can be directly interfaced to Data Comm providing meaningful real-time intelligence to and from an aircraft in flight, especially if they are operated in the background and not allowed to be a distraction to the flight crew. Additionally tablets approved for inflight use are portable so two-way data activity, as well as review, can be conducted in the comfort of the FBO or flight department. Some tablet applications, existing for data acquisition, mostly serve the specific purposes of fee-based service providers, but they also provide significant benefit to flight crews and ground personnel. Other tablet applications are cockpit weather and performance tools that, when given pilot input, will provide very useful information in return. These applications of course can be tailored to the individual user’s need. A quick search of application stores will help find the right one for your flight department Aircraft OEMs also now embed complex data acquisition, processing and transferring mechanisms within modern cockpits. Subject to customer authorization, this technology allows the OEM to directly monitor aircraft in-flight health & performance and advise customers on issues or concerns. OEM field service representatives can interact with technicians and pilots with remote troubleshooting assistance, using real-time diagnostics from the aircraft. Admittedly, the OEMs also benefit from these aggregated statistics to improve long-term aircraft development, which is a win-win for aircraft designers and operators alike. Corporate aircraft health and performance monitoring consists of the following elements: o The connection air to ground; o Real time gathering of aircraft data; o Security of data from end-to-end; o Analysis of data useful to both OEM and operator. !

Keep in mind that real-time data linked to the appropriate field service provider can be a powerful cost- and time-saving tool for flight departments, both at home and away. Data Comm, as a means of transferring information, allows two-way data exchange between pilots and air traffic controllers. Negating the need for voice communication, it provides an ability to have uplinks simultaneously sent to flight departments on the ground when FMS messages are being received by the flight crew. Data Comm includes both Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) and Future Air Navigation (FANS) protocols.

To Conclude…

A wide range of information covering safety, health and performance monitoring can be sourced, grouped into data packages, transmitted, stored or downloaded from business jets and turboprops. This exchange is useful for operators, flight departments, maintenance technicians, owners, shareholders, CFOs, regulators and others. All data should be protected, end-to-end, with security, de-identified as necessary and filtered or managed for useful purposes. It may be used to inform complex metrics for NextGen or to directly assist the efficiency and operation of flight departments. With real time reporting and field service

mobile or on-line assistance, a whole new world of customer support opens up to operators. Above all, it is becoming easier and more economical to access and analyze aircraft data, so that flight departments and owners are increasingly including this emerging technology in their aircraft purchase toolkit. ❚ Are you looking for more articles on Avionics?

ADS-B Internationally Anyone Thinking of International Travel Should Consider ADS-B Now...

We’re four years from seeing ADS-B implemented across the United States, but other regions of the world are already well under way with their plans. Dave Higdon offers a brief update on the ADS-B scene globally…

A

n airport acquaintance of mine not long ago lamented the need to install an ADS-B Out solution for his jet before he could fly a planned trip. In fact, he'd rescheduled to get the work done. The need surprised him… No, the FAA hadn't moved up the compliance date for equipping with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast here in the US. But this acquaintance’s itinerary is an international one. ADS-B is already required along parts of his route and at a couple of stops on his itinerary. So, to go there he must equip – or find an alternative means of travel. “And I'm not of a mind to buy airline tickets,” he groused. 84

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

While some nations have no plans – or major need – to adopt ADS-B for their air-traffic surveillance needs, others opted for lead-times much shorter than the US. In fact, some airspace authorities planned earlier compliance dates before realizing that the aviation industry moves forward no faster than any underlying technology.

A Sea Change (Regardless of System Used)

The change from radar to ADS-B already operates across most of the US – at least from an infrastructure perspective. The network is operational. ADSB brings a sea change in air-traffic surveillance with a defined benefit from airline and FAA perspectives, i.e. greater airspace capacity through preci-

sion surveillance that was unavailable via radar. ADS-B works by requiring each participating aircraft to report its position, speed, altitude and flight direction to the FAA's network. The source of the data? A precision-navigation-system capable of outputting that data multiple times per second. Data from the navigation source are, in turn broadcast from each individual aircraft via a reporting device – a transponder with enhanced abilities. A TSO'd WAAS GPS is the most-common source used to satisfy the ADS-B mandate, but other systems can be used – as long as they meet the performance standards required by the Technical Standards Order (TSO).

The Roots of Underlying Confusion

The ‘which-system?’ issue comes into play only for operators planning to fly IFR in the regions detailed overleaf, where it's already needed. The US FAA is, at this point, the only aviation authority to require ADS-B Out but allow two ways to comply – only one of which matches requirements everywhere else that ADS-B is or will be Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

required. We’re speaking about the international standard, 1090ES – a 1090 MHz Mode S transponder with Extended Squitter, broadcasting data from an approved navigation source. The alternative option available in the US uses a 978 MHz broadcast frequency with a broad data bandwidth to broadcast all that 1090ES and Mode S can carry, and more. Only the FAA offers free situational-awareness and weather-information tools through its unique ADS-B In services (via 978 MHz receivers). With ADS-B In, pilots in the States can obtain free incockpit weather, digital Doppler radar graphics, traffic-awareness tools, and a host of text and graphic weather aids. But the US limits use of 978 MHz ADS-B Out to FL180 – 18,000 msl. And 978 MHz doesn't satisfy the mandates of the rest of the world. So in essence, American operators flying no higher than 18,000 msl enjoy the option of equipping with 1090ES for the ADS-B Out mandate, and the added option of installing an ADS-B In receiver with either ‘Out’ solution. But if international flying is part of your operations future, going with 1090ES sets you up… well, that and possibly a letter of authorization (LOA).

Around the World in ADS-B

“A TSO'd

Australia: Airservices Australia began its staged implementation of ADS-B years ago, progressively increasing system coverage to the point that the nation has near-total coverage. The system uses a nationwide network of 29 ADS-B ground stations and 14 additional ADS-B-capable multi-lateration sites in Tasmania, and another 16 sites in the Sydney basin. These stations today deliver continuous surveillance of aircraft operations in high-level airspace across western, central and northern Australia where radar coverage does not currently exist. Another 14 ground stations may be added to support the needs of regional airlines and General Aviation. According to Greg Dunstone, ADS-B manager for Airservices Australia: • • • • •

WAAS GPS is the most-common source used to satisfy the ADS-B mandate, but

ADS-B has been operational in Australia delivering 5nm separation services for a decade; All enroute sector positions country-wide can display ADS-B tracks; Over 99% of flights at/above FL290 are already equipped; Over 61% of all IFR flights continent-wide are equipped; Australia mandates all IFR aircraft to be ADS-B Out equipped in February 2017.

Said Dunstone, “We plan to decommission four radars in 2017, saving money for our industry - we will use a mixture of ADS-B and radar.” Additionally, Airservices and the Indonesian www.AVBUYER.com

other systems can be used.”

Asia: Representing a mixed bag of ADS-B requirements amid vast gaps is Asia. As the world's nations and airspace authorities proceed with their trek toward a more-modern air-trafficmanagement system, different regions are taking different approaches. Table A (left) summarizes a few, courtesy of Universal Weather…

The Letter of Agreement Question

“...currently the FAA has no requirement for a LOA for ADS-B Out operations in US airspace.”

86

Directorate General of Civil Aviation started exchanging ADS-B data between the Australian and Indonesian FIRs in November 2010. Europe: Authorities in Europe initially opted for earlier implementation – until problems surfaced that challenged those original compliance dates (January 8, 2015 for new-production aircraft and December 7, 2017 for retrofit-installations). In August 2014 Europe announced its delay of its ADS-B Out mandate for its airspace. With that announcement the earliest ADS-B out requirement in Europe becomes effective June 8, 2016 for new aircraft; aircraft needing retrofit now have until June 7, 2020. Late last year European authorities also pushed back the compliance date for Controller-Pilot Datalink Communications (CPDLC). The delays put Europe on a schedule more closely aligned with the US. Canada: ADS-B finally provided new and extended surveillance coverage to 250,000-square nautical miles of airspace over Hudson Bay in Northern Canada starting back in January 2009. Flights between Europe and North America are the predominant users of this airspace along with some traffic bound for Asia (among them flights using the defined polar tracks). While not needed specifically for precision approach management and surveillance, ADS-B works for ATC on a tactical level, allowing reduced separation between compliant aircraft on an opportunity basis. This means each aircraft will have the appropriate protected airspace around it based on its capability. The subsequent step for NAV CANADA is to segregate airspace vertically.

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

This issue can be a moving target but currently the FAA has no requirement for a LOA for ADS-B Out operations in US airspace. But requirements exist elsewhere in the world. To that end, Advisory Circular #90-114 states that all US operators must receive FAA authorization to conduct international ADS-B Out operations, either in the form of the original LOA process, A353, or its replacement from last August, A153. Regional requirements may apply, so check any nation you plan to visit. Neither US, Australia or Fiji require an LOA for ADS-B Out operations, but that may change as ADS-B system implementation grows internationally. For example, several regions of China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam do require an LOA and, like Canada, have a conditional requirement in effect, usually based on airspace or specific routes. The moral of this story is to plan ahead for ADS-B, domestically and internationally. After all, it's coming to the US in four years’ time. ❚ Are you looking for more articles on Avionics?

must be able to look beyond the obvious. When you purchase an aircraft, boat, car or computer, you want to know what is driving the product’s performance. What is beneath the cowling, under the hood, or processing the data is important yet out of sight. You seek to understand the true potential of your purchase – not just the historical statistics. The same logic applies to the match of talent and opportunity. First impressions can be deceiving. The candidate who initially might seem to be a perfect fit may indeed not work out to everyone’s satisfaction. For trusting souls, you want to head-off any unwelcome surprise. Rather than focus on the mere mechanics of conducting an interview, let’s consider some imperceptible circumstances that might steer your ultimate decision. ! Aircraft Index see Page 176

Candidate Considerations

The director position is perfect for you, but who is pulling the strings? Is it a genuine human being or some megalomaniac? What is the motive of the potential employer? Is the individual jet owner of the Part 91 operation going to concede to become a Part 135 for tax benefits? Although it’s impossible to foretell the future, you can draft questions to arrive at a weatherman’s prediction. For example you can ask: “Based on past history, current performance and future projections, where do you believe the current CEO, company and department are headed?”

Company Considerations

“Whatever position you are seeking or trying to fill, look for synergy. ”

What is really behind the candidate’s confident demeanor and polished shoes? What is the real reason the person is scouting for new opportunities? A resume may list a succession of respectable • titles and stellar companies; however, the candidate’s emotional style and interpersonal traits may be poisonous to your current team, customers or business model. Character is the key that unlocks the secret to a successful match (all things being equal given the timing, environment, support and mission). The job may require a strong personality to clean up prior mistakes, but not a bully. You want a financial • expert to be a steward over your assets, but not an intractable, inflexible tyrant who sucks the energy from the people for short-term gains. Because of the assumption that success breeds success, employers place an inordinate amount of weight on past history. People change and circumstances change. The past doesn’t guarantee future success because achievements may have been due to timing, regulations, supply and demand, or a supportive boss. Do your circumstances provide the same conditions? Be aware of the business life cycle that requires different traits durWHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE ing each of its phases… •

90

You want a skillful negotiator who can loosen tight purse strings, attract the right talent and build support. Mergers/Acquisitions: You want someone who can make sense of chaos and uncertainty. You need a strong and engaging personality who can patiently break down alliances and silos. The leader must be able to make painful decisions while blending cultures with a motivating vision. Tired and Floundering: Needed is dogged determination, a fearless soul who is not daunted by seemingly overwhelming obstacles and who can keep the team focused on its North Star. Seek a perennial optimist who will infuse new blood with a blend of characteristics: investigator and analyst, cheerleader, coach, surgeon, communicator, psychiatrist and negotiator. Mature and Expanding: You want a leader who will honor past glory and not scrape the business back to the foundation. You want someone to enhance the current talent and resources but with a finger on the pulse of economic opportunities. This individual has a measured and monitored approach with the ability to motivate good teams to achieve even greater success. Final Days: This requires someone with the financial expertise to position the business for sale or closure. Character traits needed are a keen eye to trim the fat, compassion for others, communication skills to prepare employees for a life change, and reliability to close the door of the once-living entity.

Like humans, companies have their character too – often created by their founders. Whatever position you are seeking or trying to fill, look for synergy.

ompanies need a process for positioning the right person or team in the right place at the right time. Business aircraft are one of the tools a firm uses to achieve that goal, and the Flight Department exists to implement the process of moving people safely and efficiently to meet company objectives. Thus creating a Flight Department is an exercise in process management, with a clearly defined starting point and a set of desired outcomes. The Department’s Business Plan presents the overall structure from start to desired outcomes, and the Department’s ops manual provides the procedures and processes that will be followed. Conceptualizing a Flight Department as a process

provides a framework for monitoring performance and controlling quality (including safety and efficiency) of transportation services via business aircraft. To assure that a suitable level of quality is being achieved and that there is continuous improvement, the results of the Flight Department—the safe and effective movement of people and possibly high-priority goods to meet corporate goals— must be measured and reviewed. Business guru Peter Drucker observed, “That which is measured, improves”. Quality assurance requires two basic actions: an established means for measuring outcomes, and a system for reviewing (i.e., auditing) behaviors. Aircraft Index see Page 176

Measuring Performance

“Yet each flight does produce a quantity of value consisting of several components...”

94

The Flight Department’s Operations Manual specifies the desired outcomes for each step along the path of fulfilling the company’s transportation needs in Business Aviation. That document also provides the actions, based upon industry-best practices, to be taken at each phase of the transportation process to achieve a satisfactory level of performance. A means of measuring costs is established, either within the ops manual or in a separate manual related to auditing departmental performance, so that each flight can be assessed using a consistent scale. Thus the costs of trips are compared on an apples-to-apples basis. Costs, however, are only one aspect of Business Aviation’s impact on a firm’s ability to serve shareholders. There is a value obtained from resources applied to operating business aircraft, and that performance should be measured. While costing metrics are commonplace, many Flight Departments do not have an established protocol for measuring the value and efficiency of the transportation they provide to meet corporate goals. Yet each flight does produce a quantity of value consisting of several components, and each flight can be evaluated against other forms of transportation (such as airlines) to access the efficient use of travel time:

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

www.AVBUYER.com

• • •

Travel time saved has value; Cost of overnight stays in hotels minimized or eliminated has value; A business team working together while traveling, thereby adding to the efficiency of time spent traveling, has value.

There are many payoffs to be considered, but the major value of Business Aviation goes far beyond reduced travel costs and time saved. Placing the most effective person or team at the right place at the right time—possibly before the competition establishes a solid relationship with a prospective customer, or before an existing client is lost due to poor service or neglect can add measurably to your company’s bottom line. Such performance should be identified, measured and used to evaluate the value and efficiency of Business Aviation. During the development of a Business Plan and Operations Manual, the person responsible for creating the Flight Department should generate a means of measuring outcomes of value and efficiency; obtain “buy-in” for such a measurement; and apply that yardstick to each trip. A consistent set of data based upon an agreedupon metric will be highly useful in managing the company’s use of Business Aviation. We urge companies creating a Flight Department as well as those with existing Flight Aircraft Index see Page 176


Management 2 Oct15 .qxp_Finance 20/10/2015 10:07 Page 3

Departments to follow the good advice outlined in David Wyndham’s October 2015 AvBuyer article entitled ‘MOVE Documentation: A System to Capture Business Aviation’s Value & Efficiency’ (page 64).

Managing Quality by Reviewing Actions

Broadly, a Flight Department is subject to constant review. Flight crews and maintenance personnel follow FAA regulations. Aviators take pride in their professionalism and strive to perform well in the presence of their peers. Flight Department managers monitor the performance of their team, and they are accountable to someone in the firm’s senior hierarchy. While self-assessment and peer reviews are necessary elements of good process management, the review or audit function should also include third-party assessments, independent from those who are integral to the Flight Department process. Support for quality control and continuous improvement should be established from the Flight Department’s inception and pervade throughout the department’s existence. How the audit process will be conducted should be included within the Flight Department’s Business Plan. Furthermore, the quality control process employed by the Flight Department should be aligned with the policies and culture of the overall corporation. Best practices call for annual audits, with every other yearly assessment conducted by reviewers not assigned to, or employed by the Flight Department. The aviation manager can establish or lead a review team to conduct the annual audit during one 12-month cycle and seek an outside review Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

every other 12-month period, employing either contracted services from established aviation entities or the company’s internal auditors. In either situation, the department’s ops manual will be the document against which performance will be assessed and recommendations made. While the Business Aviation community is well served by the protocol known as International Standard-Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) and aviation managers developing a Business Plan are well advised to read and be familiar with ISBAO, a new Flight Department may prefer to get started before seeking IS-BAO registration. Initially, quality assurance procedures can be integrated into the department’s creation through a well-conceived Business Plan and Operations Manual. Eventually, however, Flight Departments should embrace IS-BAO with its emphasis on a Safety Management System (SMS), and its concept of process management for quality assurance and continuous improvement.

Summing Up

Quality assurance for Flight Departments begins with a comprehensive Business Plan and a well-documented Operations Manual. Yardsticks for measuring the costs of implementation and the value of outcomes are essential. Each step along the path between initiation of a travel request through assessment of trip outcome should be reviewed to measure performance. The end-result will be higher quality and ongoing improvement. ❚ Are you looking for more articles on Flight Department Management? Visit www.avbuyer.com/articles/flight-department-management/

Are You Ready for PBN? (Part 3)

A Closer Look at RNP Approaches Multiple operators are upgrading to Performance Based Navigation (PBN) capability for various phases of flight, notes Mario Pierobon. This month we cover a navigation specification that’s of significant value to business jet operators: the RNP approach...

A •

Mario Pierobon is a safety management consultant and content producer. He currently is working on a research project investigating aircraft ground handling safety. Contact him via marioprbn@gmail.com

96

s a macro-category, RNP specification includes two different types of approaches. These include:

RNP approach operations down to LNAV (lateral navigation) and LNAV/VNAV (lateral navigation/vertical navigation) minima; and RNP approach operations down to LP (localizer performance) and LPV (localizer performance with vertical guidance) minima.

RNP approach operations to LNAV and LNAV/VNAV minima rely on lateral navigation guidance provided by a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and have vertical guidance provided by a conventional barometric system. RNP approach operations to LP and LPV minima, meanwhile, rely on lateral navigation guidance provided by a satellite-based augmentation system

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

www.AVBUYER.com

(SBAS). An SBAS provides an optimized, highly accurate, GNSS signal. LPV approaches have, in addition, vertical guidance that is also SBAS supported. LPV approaches are classified to be ‘localizer performance with vertical guidance’ because they closely mimic conventional ILS approaches down to decision altitudes of up to 200 ft. It should be noted that at some airports it may not be possible to publish an LPV approach due to obstacles and/or terrain along the desired final approach path, or the inability of the SBAS to provide the desired availability of vertical guidance. In these instances the regulatory authority may instead elect to provide an LP approach based on the lateral performance of the SBAS only.

Gaining Momentum

LPV and, where not available, LP approaches are gaining momentum in Business Aviation. The high Aircraft Index see Page 176


Safety 1 Nov15.qxp_Finance 21/10/2015 10:39 Page 2

Operator Focus?

accuracy of SBAS optimized GNSS signals, together with the availability of the aircraft equipment needed to perform LPV and LP approaches (e.g. a GNSS SBAS sensor) in newer generations of business aircraft, are leading operators to apply for the operational approval needed to perform this kind of approach. In order to be LP and LPV approved, an operator first needs to familiarize itself with the documentation its national aviation authority uses to assess readiness to perform LP and LPV approaches. In the US, the FAA has issued airworthiness criteria for GNSS equipment and systems that are eligible for LP and LPV approaches in Advisory Circular (AC) 20-138(c and d). In Europe, EASA has developed certification material for airworthiness approval and operational criteria for LP and LPV approaches in Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) 20-28 consistent with the FAA material. These two sets of criteria are also harmonized as a global standard in Volume II, Part C, Chapter 5, Part B of ICAO PBN Manual (Document 9613, advanced fourth edition 2013). LP and LPV certification materials contain requirements that are of interest to operators with regard to aircraft eligibility, operational approval, aircraft requirements, operating procedures, training and navigation database. Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Airworthiness requirements are not normally a major concern for operators, unless they elect to retrofit an older aircraft with equipment that allows them to meet the airworthiness requirements associated with LP and LPV approach operations. The service bulletins to be implemented to meet LP and LPV capability can easily cost several hundred thousand US$, thus thorough economic considerations need to be given to the cost of installing the required equipment versus the anticipated frequency of operating to airports without ILS approaches. Operators should focus on PBN procedures, because that is the area where change must be managed. Operating procedures need to be developed for pre-flight planning; the verification of augmented GNSS availability; tasks to be performed prior to commencing the LP/LPV procedure; tasks to be performed during the procedure; general operating procedures; and contingency procedures. It should be noted that the certification materials only provide for high level requirements that need to be incorporated into the standard operating procedures of the operator and documented within its operations manual. The activity of developing operating procedures requires a sophisticated task analysis and the identification of a standardized way of performing a task. This standard should be documented in the operations manual in the ‘WHAT-WHEN-WHO -FOLLOWED BY’ format, without any ‘copy-paste’ from regulatory material.

“...thorough economic considerations need to be given to the cost of installing the required equipment...”

‘What-When-Who-Followed By’

The ‘WHAT-WHEN-WHO -FOLLOWED BY’ format requires that every specific task making up a procedure is detailed in terms of: • • • •

WHAT action is needed; WHEN it is needed; WHO needs to perform this; and What the given task is to be FOLLOWED BY.

PBN benefits operators in terms of airport access, reduced flight time and improved fuel consumption. It is important that operators fully familiarize themselves with the PBN concept, understand the large availability of navigation specifications, and comply with the operational requirements needed to implement the PBN operations they elect to adopt. ❚ www.AVBUYER.com

Entry-Level & Light Jets Are you Seeking Flexibility at a Lower Cost Level?

Where performance and value are dominant factors for a mission need, remember this: there’s nothing lightweight about the value and flexibility of the Entry-Level & Light Jets.

A

s business jets increase in size from Entry-Level & Light jets to the low end of the Large Cabin models, six to eight seats generally remains the standard configuration across size-category lines. And while cabins increase in volume generally (enabling more productive workspace for those traveling longer distances), full-fuel payload doesn’t seem to grow proportionally in most cases. As jets get bigger and heavier their runway needs increase, with no appreciable gain in how many people or equipment can fly – and thus we touch upon the key advantages of the Entry-Level & Light jet category - the value and flexibility offered to those who typically fly shorter legs. Fully-fuelled, an Entry-Level or Light jet can often barely carry the typical passenger load of three persons, unless one or two of them doubles as a crew member. Nevertheless, with the average mission length below 750 miles and the nominal maximum-range of Light jets around 1,200 miles, the crew enjoys the option of flying lighter and saving fuel. Fueling for the mission with NBAA reserves allows larger cabin loads, making three or four - plus crew - possible. The time difference between Entry-Level & Light jets and Large jets to fly a typical 750nm mission is small (about 10 to 12 minutes, overall) and is not a large time-saving for costs that may be considerably higher for the larger aircraft. Further, beyond these speed-range-payload operational basics, the Light jet crew will have the option of far more airports, often closer, more convenient and less expensive than what’s needed for the Medium and Large jets. Thus, it’s hard to escape the heavyweight value of the Entry-Level & Light jet. So what exactly is a Light jet? Today we consider a jet “light” when its MTOW falls between 10,000 and 20,000 pounds. About a decade ago the Light 98

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

segment represented the bottom rung of the business jet ladder. That was before the Entry-Level Jets entered the market, differentiated by weights below almost everything ever built at less than 10,000 pounds.

Entry-Level & Light Jet Price Guide

The following Entry-Level & Light Jets Retail Price Guide represents current average values published in The Aircraft Bluebook – Price Digest. The study spans a twenty year period, from 1996 through fall 2015, and covers 31 models. Values reported are in US$m, with each reporting point representing the current average retail value published in the Bluebook by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Beechcraft Premier 1A average value reported in the fall 2015 edition of Bluebook shows $1.7 million for a 2007 model, $1.6 million for a 2006 model and so forth. www.AVBUYER.com

T

Small & Entry Level Jets

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 -Small & Entry Level Jets – appears overleaf, 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. Tel: +44 (0) 20 8391 6770; Email: editorial@avbuyer.com. © 2011 Conklin & de Decker Associates, Inc., P.O. Box 1142, Orleans, Massachusetts, 02653, Tel. 508-255-5975, www.conklindd.com

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

102

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

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 - Seats Full is the maximum IFR range of the aircraft with all 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 176

Aircraft Comparative Analysis: Textron Hawker 800XP

In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on three popular business jets for the purpose of valuing the Hawker 800XP. A 2005 model Hawker 800XP has a list price of $3.5m.

O

Mike Chase’s analytical and consultancy services are highly valued within the Business Aviation industry. He is founder and president of Chase & Associates, and works closely with several respected sources to compile his unique Aircraft Comparative Analysis feature. Contact Mike via mike@avbuyer.com

ver the following paragraphs, we’ll consider productivity parameters (payload/range, speed and cabin size) and cover current and future market values for the Textron Hawker 800XP. The field in this study includes the Citation Sovereign and Learjet 60 business jets. Combined, these three models have over 1,000 aircraft in operation today (see Table A).

Brief History

The Hawker 800XP is a derivative from the design of the UK-built de Havilland/Hawker Siddeley and British Aerospace 125 that was first built in 1962. The Hawker 125 evolved into the Series 400 through 800, and was produced up to 1993 when Raytheon purchased the Series 800 program and the aircraft was renamed the Hawker 800. The 800 series has a number of modifications and changes over the 700 series, including improved payload capabilities, updated systems, and enhanced per-

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

www.AVBUYER.com

formance from an improved wing (incorporating new outer wing sections). Hawker 800 aircraft, which numbered 292 units, ceased being manufactured in 1995 when the 800XP entered service. The 800A (230 built) was specifically produced for the US market and the 800B (62 built) was for non-US markets.

Chart A - Cabin Cross-Sections

The Hawker 800XP features an uprated engine, enhanced aerodynamics, increased weight and system upgrades compared with preceding models. The Hawker 800XP was manufactured between 1995 and 2005, and the number of units built in that timeframe totaled 426 aircraft, with 421 still in service today. Five have been retired. The Hawker 800XP features Honeywell TFE-731-5BR-1H engines. It is RVSM certified from the factory after serial number 258359, or when service bulletin SB-34-3110 (Honeywell) or SB-34-3166 (Collins) is implemented. Textron Aviation purchased the Hawker aircraft product line in March 2014 and has integrated the Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker aircraft brands.

Worldwide Appeal

There are 380 wholly-owned Hawker 800XP aircraft in operation worldwide. In addition there are ten Hawker 800XPs in shared ownership and 25 in fractional ownership. By continent, North America has the largest fleet percentage at 74%, followed by Asia (9%), for a combined total of 83%. Additionally, 35 (8.3%) of the fleet currently in operation consists of leased aircraft, according to JETNET.

The data contained in Table B (top, left) are published in the B&CA, May 2015 issue, but information is also sourced from Conklin & de Decker. As we have mentioned in past articles, a potential operator should focus on payload capability as a key factor. The Hawker 800XP ‘Available Payload with Maximum Fuel’ at 1,750 pounds is greater than the Sovereign (1,177 pounds) and Learjet 60 (1,068 pounds). In addition, Table B shows the fuel usage by each aircraft in this field of study, per Aircraft Cost Calculator. The Learjet 60 is the most frugal at 215 gallons per hour (GPH). The Hawker 800XP (262 GPH) burns the most fuel per hour of the study aircraft. Aircraft Index see Page 176

According to Conklin & de Decker, the Hawker 800XP cabin volume is 551 cubic feet. The Sovereign has slightly more cabin volume at 571 cu ft, however, the cabin length of the Sovereign (25.25 feet) is longer than the Hawker 800XP at 21.3 feet. The Learjet 60 is smaller in cabin volume (447 cu ft) and shorter in length at 17.67 ft compared to the other aircraft in the field of study. Chart A, center, left (courtesy of UPCAST JETBOOK) provides side-by-side cabin cross-section comparisons.

Range Comparison

As depicted by Chart B (bottom, left) and using Witchita, Kansas as the origin point, the Sovereign shows greater range coverage than the Hawker 800XP and Learjet 60, although all three jets reach most of the lower 48 states, Canada and Mexico non-stop. The range details depicted are sourced from Aircraft Cost Calculator (ACC). Note: For jets and turboprops, ‘Seats-Full Range’ represents the maximum IFR range of the aircraft at Long-Range Cruise with all passenger seats occupied. ACC assumes NBAA IFR fuel reserve calculation for a 200nm alternate. The lines depicted do not include winds aloft or any other weather-related obstacles.

Powerplant Details

As mentioned previously, the Hawker 800XP is powered by two Honeywell TFE 731-5BR engines, each with a thrust rating of 4,660 pounds. The Sovereign and Learjet are powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C and PW305A engines, respectively, offering a thrust rating of 5,770 and 4,600 pounds.

Total Variable Cost

The ‘Total Variable Cost’ illustrated in Chart D is defined as the Cost of Fuel Expense, Maintenance Labor Expense, Scheduled Parts Expense and Miscellaneous Trip Expense. The Total Variable Cost for the Hawker 800XP computes at $2,126 per hour, which is 9.4% November 2015 – AVBUYER MAGAZINE

Aircraft Comparison Table

Table C (previous page) contains the pre-owned prices from Vref Pricing Guide for each aircraft (2005 model). The average speed, cabin volume and maximum payload values are from Conklin & de Decker, while the number of aircraft in-operation and percentage ‘For Sale’ are as reported by JETNET. The Hawker 800XP has 11.9% of its fleet currently ‘For Sale’ and the Learjet 60 has 12.9% for sale. However, the Sovereign has a lesser percentage ‘For Sale’ at

116

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

7.2%. The average number of used transactions (sold) per month during the past 12 months for the Hawker 800XP is higher at just over five per month than the Sovereign and Learjet (4.5 each), as shown in the last column of the table.

Depreciation Schedule

Aircraft that are owned and operated by businesses are often depreciable for income tax purposes under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). Under MACRS, taxpayers are allowed to accelerate the depreciation of assets by taking a greater percentage of the deductions during the first

few years of the applicable recovery period (see Table D, above). In certain cases, aircraft may not qualify under the MACRS system and must be depreciated under the less favorable Alternative Depreciation System (ADS) where depreciation is based on a straight-line method, meaning that equal deductions are taken during each year of the applicable recovery period. In most cases, recovery periods under ADS are longer than recovery periods available under MACRS. There are a variety of factors that taxpayers must consider in determining if an aircraft may be

www.AVBUYER.com

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 ADS with a six year recovery period. There are certain uses of the aircraft, such as non-business flights, that may have an impact on the allowable depreciation deduction available in a given year. Table E (left) depicts an example of using the MACRS schedule for a 2005 Hawker 800XP aircraft in private (Part 91) and charter (Part 135) operations over five and seven-year periods, assuming a used retail value of $3.5 million, per Vref Pricing guide.

Asking Prices vs Age, Quantity & Engines

Chart E (right), sourced from the Multi-dimensional Economic Evaluators Inc. (www.meevaluators.com), shows a Value and Demand chart for the pre-owned Hawker 800XP including the Sovereign and Learjet 60 aircraft. The current pre-owned market for the Hawker 800XP shows a total of 50 aircraft ‘For Sale’ with twentysix displaying an asking price, thus we have plotted those twenty-six. We also added other preowned business jets from our study group with asking prices ranging from $1.0m-9.6m. The equation that we derived from these asking prices and other criteria used should enable sellers and buyers to compare, and perhaps adjust their offerings, if necessary. Demand and Value are on opposite sides of the same price axis. Thus, the market for used Hawker 800XPs responds to at least four features: Years, AFTT (hours), Quantity and Price. Aircraft Index see Page 176


AirCompAnalysis 15.qxp_ACAn 21/10/2015 14:13 Page 5

1. Range with full payload and available fuel; 2. The long-range cruise speed flown to achieve that range; 3. The cabin volume available for passengers and amenities. Others may choose different parameters, but serious business aircraft buyers are usually impressed with Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size. After consideration of the Price, Range, Speed and Cabin Size, we can conclude that the Hawker 800XP displays a high level of productivity. Popular attributes of the Hawker 800XP are a significantly higher payload capability compared to the aircraft in our analysis. However, costs per mile and per hour are higher for the Hawker 800XP, although preowned asking prices are competitive. Operators should weigh their mission requirements precisely when picking the option that is the best for them.

Summary

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the attributes that business aircraft operators value. There are other qualities such as airport performance, terminal area performance, and time to climb that might factor in a buying decision, however. The Hawker 800XP continues to be very popular today. Those operators in the market should find the preceding comparison useful. Our expectations are that the Hawker 800XP, which started delivering in 1995 and ended production in 2005, will continue to do very well in the pre-owned markets for the foreseeable future. â?š Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

Piaggio Avanti Deserves Another Look

The Often Misunderstood Evolution of the Avanti With a few more than 225 produced, the Piaggio Avanti P180/Avanti I, with its one-of-a-kind design, has evolved into one of the best buys in today’s entry-level aircraft market, notes Marj Rose…

S

peed, agility, efficiency and cabin comfort make the distinctive Piaggio P180 a perfect fit for many, but it hasn’t been an easy road for the current aftermarket fleet. The largest single operator of the Avanti fleet was the now dissolved Avantair, operating with 57 Avanti aircraft at its peak. The fractional provider was launched in 2003 and operated the Piaggio Avanti exclusively. Avantair monopolized the Piaggio Avanti deliveries for several years as the company grew by leaps and bounds and went public in 2007. But by 2012, Avantair voluntarily grounded its fleet because of an elevator issue and in 2013, with serious maintenance issues that most of us will have read about, Avantair ceased operations and declared bankruptcy. In January 2014, there was an auction to sell off all the assets, while many lawsuits were filed. So that brings us to the aircraft’s aftermarket landscape of today, and with all the negative publicity, John Koltes, Founder and President, Jet Trader Group and Piaggio Avanti pilot, feels the aircraft is misunderstood by many in the industry, and that sometimes prospective buyers don’t give it fair consideration. “The Avanti owners I have spoken to and flown with over the years love the aircraft,” Koltes notes. “But soon after it was introduced, the fast growing Avantair took the majority of the aircraft off the production line for its fractional business. They were flying many more hours than the aircraft was designed for, so replacement parts and keeping up with maintenance became a huge challenge for them. “It wasn’t that the aircraft required more maintenance than any typical turboprop aircraft, it was the way the majority of the fleet was being operated that created a parts shortage and additional challenges for Piaggio Aerospace, the manufacturer. And that is Advertising Enquiries see Page 4

where I think this aircraft may have received an unjustified reputation in the industry as a maintenance monstrosity.”

New Dawn

As the water passes under the bridge on this chapter for Piaggio Aerospace the future looks brighter with new majority owners, Mubadala, and a new third generation Avanti named EVO. The service and support concerns from the Avantair era has been replaced with an enhanced commitment to customer service and a worldwide network of authorized MRO facilities. There is no doubt that the loyal Piaggio Avanti customers will be taking a hard look at the additional amenities that the new EVO aircraft offers, including greater range and more speed. By the end of this year, approximately 30 of the Piaggio Avanti aircraft from Avantair should be recertified and flying again, and all of this happened within a relatively short period of time. This was no easy accomplishment, and it demonstrates the dedication Piaggio Aerospace has for the aircraft’s future and to the customers who own and operate them, Koltes claims. Many Avanti fractional owners went through lengthy processes, after the Avantair bankruptcy to become whole owners because of their positive experience operating this aircraft. “The Piaggio Avanti following is loyal, and they have a thorough understanding of the aircraft’s potential that I hope will translate across our industry,” Koltes summarizes. “A pre-owned Piaggio Avanti should be given great consideration by so many buyers right now. Owner’s get to experience great manufacturer support; a cabin size similar to a Learjet 60; the speed of a Citation CJ2; and the efficiency of a King Air 300 – all for a fraction of the cost of a new aircraft. The Piaggio Avanti is a heck of an airplane!” More from jettradergroup.com

When Quieter Means Tastier…

The Science Behind Amazingly Good Private Jet Food When it comes to dining aboard a private jet cruising at 30,000 ft, making any kind of food taste delicious becomes a challenge that only the experts can take on and succeed in.

While it might surprise some, it’s been scientifically proven that our senses tend to numb as soon as the aircraft climbs to higher altitudes. In fact, pressure stacks up, humidity drops to 4% (drier than most desserts) and noise level increases to over 85dBA - all of which makes you taste food the way you would taste it while suffering from an extreme cold, while sat in the Sahara desert on a mountaintop 2,100m high! “The taste of salt decreases by up to 50% and the compromised sense of smell makes the food twice as bland,” notes Vitalij Kapitonov, CEO, KlasJet. “Bitter and spicy flavours are almost unaffected, however.” Despite all of this, enjoying your beloved Beluga caviar onboard a private jet is still possible! “For one, private jets are quieter, which in this case means tastier. Take, for example, the Cessna Citation Encore. Its effective perceived noise level is 58.3dBA while Boeing 737 reaches a sense-numbing 71.8dBA, according to FAA. Nevertheless, serving high quality food on a private jet is undoubtedly a challenge both financially and from a quality point of view.”

Specialists at On Air Dining, say it can cost up to $20,000 to develop a dish for Business Aviation designed to overcome the impacts of altitude. Moreover, factoring the costs of transportation, the need to reheat the food even during the shorter journeys undertaken by Business Aviation, and the requirement for the food to be blast-chilled to keep it out of the bacteria danger zone, and you have yourself a real quest. Adding to the challenge is the ability to cater to dietary preferences. According to different studies, 31% of the world’s population consider themselves vegan and there are over 10 million vegetarians in the UK and the US alone. It goes without saying that the ability to order vegan or gluten-free food is a big advantage of flying privately. Kapitonov summarizes, “It all comes down to a mix of knowledge and courage. This is without doubt a field where making the extra step in order to exceed every imaginable demand counts. If you ask any frequent flyer, service and catering are the most important things in Business Aviation”. www.aviasg.com

G500 Surpasses 100 Flight Hours

Gulfstream’s G500 has achieved several flighttest milestones, including surpassing more than 100 hours of flight. The accomplishments come just 12 months after the all-new G500 and G600 aircraft programs were announced. As of October 13, the G500 flight test aircraft had successfully completed more than 45 missions, the longest of those being 5 hours and 22 minutes for a total aircraft flight time of more than 100 hours. In the five months since the aircraft’s first flight, it has reached an altitude of 38,500 feet/11,735 meters and a maximum airspeed of Mach 0.80. “It’s just really exciting to see how well this aircraft is performing,” enthused Dan Nale, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. “This plane has been flying exactly as expected, which highlights our commitment to quality and our attention to detail… Our test pilots have said the aircraft’s handling qualities are exceptional.” The G500 flight-test and certification program includes four test 162

AVBUYER MAGAZINE – November 2015

aircraft. Each is used for a specific series of tests, with the first aircraft (T1) focused on flight performance and flight controls, the second (T2) on flight loads validation, the third (T3) on avionics, and the fourth (T4) on human factors and supporting systems. The program also includes one aircraft with a fully outfitted interior to validate the functionality and compatibility of various cabin systems when used at altitude. Together, the G500 and G600 programs have accomplished more than 39,000 hours of lab testing. Gulfstream anticipates certification of the G500 in 2017, with entry into service in 2018. The G600 certification is slated to follow in 2018, with entry into service in 2019. www.gulfstream.com !

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

AVAILABLE: FALCON 900B
