BUSINESS AVIATION AND THE BOARDROOM

Profit from Control: Reasons for the Business Aviation user to stand tall. Possibly the world’s most recognized expert on the value of Business Aviation, Jack Olcott is a former Editor and Publisher of Business & Commercial Aviation magazine and Vice President within McGraw-Hill’s Aviation Week Group. He was President of the National Business Aviation Association from 1992 through 2003, and today Jack’s network and personal knowledge of Business Aviation uniquely qualifies him to oversee Business Aviation and the Boardroom. More information from www.generalaerocompany.com

Board Members may fear that Business Aviation will be disadvantaged during President Obama’s second term. Fear not, asserts Jack Olcott. The value of business aircraft was well documented in the campaign just concluded.

B

usiness Aviation offers many advantages. For business leaders and entrepreneurs, one of the most useful is control over one’s travel schedule and use of time spent traveling. Surely both President Obama and challenger Governor Romney used business aircraft extensively to campaign from coast-to-coast and from north to south, often being in places during a single day that were separated by thousands of miles.

Both candidates required the mobility that only Business Aviation provides, and both profited from being able to control when and where they spoke to voters. Both candidates used their business aircraft in a manner identical to the way business men and women use a corporate or charter aircraft to reach customers and sell them on using the goods and services being offered. In the case of President Obama and Governor Romney, eligible voters were the customers, and the sales objective was winning their vote.

MANAGING TIME AND TALENT The task of managing a presidential campaign is monumental. Without the ability to work with advisors and organizers while traveling nearly 24/7 to swing states, neither President Obama nor Governor Romney could have led their efforts to win voter support. Each candidate depended upon their ability to use travel time productively. Politicians by nature are opportunistic while

What the Boardroom needs to know about Business Aviation

BUSINESS AVIATION EQUIPS CORPORATE AMERICA WITH THE TOOLS TO HELP FIX THE ECONOMY

they are in campaign mode and appear hypocritical. Now that the voting is over and the Obama camp has been given the obligation to lead during the next four years, I predict that we will hear less about business jets being chariots of the idle rich, and frivolous symbols of the 0.1 percent. President Obama could not have conducted his winning campaign without the use of the nation’s most visible business jet—Air Force One. No leap of faith or right-wing bias is needed to recognize the significant role that mobility plays in accomplishing a successful campaign or a profitable business endeavor. Control over travel schedules and use of time while traveling are essential requirements for success, regardless of the goal being sought. Politicians and business personnel need the benefits of an office that moves—going where and when the demands of business dictate.

IT’S THE ECONOMY… Furthermore, the public considers the economy to be the biggest challenge facing our country. While voters in the November 6th election were nearly equally divided in their support for the Democratic and Republican candidates, they told researchers conducting exit surveys that economic recovery and job creation are their top priorities. Business Aviation facilitates economic expansion and job creation. Board Members know how vital Business Aviation is to the successful conduct of the corporation’s activities, domestically as well as internationally. Politicians also know that transportation in all forms—Airlines and Business Aviation—is a necessity. The Obama Administration recognizes that scheduled Airlines focus on about 35 hub cities throughout the USA. Servicing rural America is not an Airline priority. But opportunities for job growth exist in the hinterlands, and only Business Aviation is able to support the needs of industry Advertising Enquiries see Page 8

to develop commerce and jobs in rural America. US industry requires access to places that the Airlines do not serve and do not want to serve, since their business model is aimed at capturing the high load factors that exist for travel between hub cities. Once entrepreneurs and expanding companies establish new plants and markets in remote locations, scheduled Airline service is bound to follow. Thus Business Aviation eventually results in more public transportation. Until such development occurs, however, business men and women need the advantages that only business aircraft provide. They need to control their access to opportunity, regardless of where it can be developed. And they must be able to control how they use their time to be productive. Business leaders have powerful ammunition with which to counter negative, populous business jet-bashing should the Obama administration elect to spend its precious political capital on such diversions. Clearly, our community will be heard and respected as programs such as the No Plane No Gain efforts of GAMA and NBAA continue to communicate the benefits of Business Aviation. Transportation enables economic growth and improved quality of life—two outcomes that all the American public wants from the second term of President Obama’s administration. Clearly the Obama Administration also wants to facilitate economic expansion, encourage job growth and improve the living standard of all Americans. Business Aviation is an essential component of our nation’s transportation system that will help the re-elected administration achieve its goals. I expect our politicians to respect that fact.

“Control over travel schedules and use of time while traveling are essential requirements for success.”

Directors are not medical examiners. But they have a responsibility to set policy regarding when a pilot should retire, notes Pete Agur.

T

here is no regulatory standard for the retirement age for Business Aviation pilots. That means your company’s pilot retirement policy is a corporate decision, and it should be addressed sooner, rather than later. The timing issue is driven home by the large number of Vietnam-era pilots filling the seats of aircraft flying for corporate America. Those pilots are now in their mid-sixties. I turned 65 this past summer. To celebrate, I flew a fighter aircraft until the safety pilot, a Top Gun guy, asked me to knock it off. I didn’t stop grinning for a week. The point is that my stick and rudder skills are still pretty good. But my recall and expertise on complex aircraft systems and procedures are

weakening. If I were still flying professionally, or even personally, I would want an experienced safety captain in the other seat. Those are my personal observations. The regulatory benchmarks on pilot retirement are set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). For private operations not for hire (FAR Part 91) and for air taxi for hire (FAR Part 135), there is no limit for crew age. The FAA age limit for pilots operating under scheduled commercial operations (FAR Part 121) was raised a few years ago to age 65. The European Union recently had a court case finding that pilots could fly commercially until age 65 as long as another cockpit crewmember was under U age 60.

What the Boardroom needs to know about Business Aviation THE ONUS IS WITH THE BOARD TO ESTABLISH THE POLICY WITHIN THE FLIGHT DEPARTMENT

PROACTIVE RETIREMENT POLICY Please understand that leaving the cockpit voluntarily is not easy for the vast majority of pilots. Most pilots fly because they love what they do. Others have been told by their significant others that they married them for better or worse, but not for lunch. In other words, don’t quit your day job. No matter what the motivation, a pilot is not likely, on his or her own volition, to retire on the day before they become a liability. Even so, most Business Aviation departments do not have a formal flight crew retirement age. This is a problem because there is no easy way for a flight crew member to have their mental acuity and competence to fly confirmed. Flight training organizations are not in that business and don’t want to be. Can you imagine the risks they would assume critiquing a pilot’s ability to continue to earn a living? Especially when the pilot has a great deal to say over which training vendor he or she uses? If your company has an aviation department, you have the opportunity and the responsibility to establish the retirement age of your pilots. A recent Federal Court Summary Judgment was handed down in favor of ExxonMobil for having done just that. ExxonMobil put an age 65 retirement rule in place. That policy has survived a challenge by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Obviously, the lawyers are considering appeals, so the case is not fully confirmed, but it appears the precedent has been set. If your aircraft is operated for you by a management company, your flight crew retirement age issues are not necessarily settled. Most management companies ask the client to set that standard, which places the onus back on you, the customer. An added challenge to a retirement policy is that many senior executives become inordinately

18

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

attached to their pilots. After all, they have been through a lot together. And good pilots are hard to find.

INADEQUATE GOVERNANCE So, why not trust your pilot to let you know when he or she wants to retire? It’s simple: because if there is no standard, there is no standard, and such an approach is inadequate governance. Do you leave it up to drinkers to stop on their own just before they are too impaired to drive? Of course you don’t. Yet, the users of Business Aviation often leave it up to the pilots to stop flying before they are mentally impaired by the aging process. If you doubt the reality of the problem, you should hear the echoes in crew waiting rooms of stories told by junior pilots who routinely save their captains from embarrassment, or worse. In closing, I offer you an elegant solution: Set a policy for your flight crewmembers to retire at the end of the calendar year in which they turn 65years-old. • It gives them something to plan on. • It gives them an opportunity to gain any merit or tenure bonuses they may accrue during that year. • It gives you and them an opportunity to celebrate their years of service. • And most importantly, it gives you, as a Board Member, peace of mind that you have managed a very subtle, yet real risk to the safety of your company’s most important assets - its key travelers.

“If your company has an aviation department, you have the opportunity and the responsibility to establish the retirement age of your pilots.”

irectors are expected to exercise good judgment by using their knowledge and training. Budgets are compared with actual results, and variances are analyzed.

overall reduction in year-to-date inventory levels. Therefore some of the reduction in availability levels is due to owners removing their aircraft from the market. Fewer used aircraft for sale may be the result of better optics of owning and operating a business aircraft. Companies are getting back to the business of flying! Reduced inventory could also be the result of lower selling prices causing owners to U

First, look at the industry from the perspective of available inventory, recent sales and pricing. Second, identify outside factors that can affect the future of the industry, distract the marketplace and be real game-changers. Third, examine broad-based financing opportunities that influence the health and valuation of the market.

INVENTORY LEVELS The number of pre-owned aircraft for sale is reported to be down slightly. Corresponding transactions, however, are not up sufficiently to account for the

retain their aircraft until the selling environment is more attractive. With respect to sales and sales volume, the market now is more active than it was earlier this year - driven in large part by price. Real buyers who can demonstrate a sincerity and ability to purchase will be rewarded with exceptional pricing. There is far greater supply than demand, even though inventory levels are slightly lower. Real buyers get real deals! The market is actually enjoying this activity at all levels. Aircraft of all varieties—newer, larger, older, smaller—are selling if the price is right. As a seller, it is vital to listen carefully to your trusted aviation professional and price the offering correctly.

FINANCING The continued lack of financing opportunities for pre-owned aircraft is a significant factor in today’s as well as tomorrow’s market. Most of the lending that is available is “relationship based”, and limited to newer aircraft. Very few lenders work on the basis of the old days when the relationship was not the only entry point to lending and the aircraft’s age was not a factor. Of course age and condition may have always affected loan-to-equity ratios, but they seldom determined “yes or no” to the approval of the loan. Lack of financing will greatly impair our recovery until some lenders begin to expand their thinking to reinstate the norms of previous days.

ALL IS NOT BLEAK OUTSIDE FACTORS In measures of inventory and pricing, the market for business aircraft is affected by outside factors. Many people were waiting until the US elections, anticipating that the market would rebound due to a ground swell of buyers seeking to capitalize on low prices and thus shifting quickly the demand/supply balance. The real game-changers coming in our nearterm will be the Economic Cliff facing the US government in January, and the current significant downturn in economic growth in Europe. These are situations that can severely affect the economy of the United States, and in turn influence the health of our industry.

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

If you are a seller, take heart that there are buyers looking for good situations. If you are a buyer, there are opportunities that have never been as abundant as they are now. Along with abundance comes caution, however. Approach the market with wisdom and capture the best aircraft for the price. All offerings are not alike, so look very closely at records and maintenance history. Do not be swayed by pretty cosmetics, and always exhibit sound judgment and prudent due diligence.

Supplemental Airlift: Fractional Ownership meets minority travel needs. David Wyndham is an owner of Conklin & de Decker where the focus of his activities is on aircraft cost and performance analyses, fleet planning, and life cycle costing for clients. Mr. Wyndham can be contacted at david@conklindd.com

Are your business travel requirements starting to outgrow your current business aircraft, but not sufficiently or regularly enough to justify purchase of a larger or an additional company jet? Perhaps Fractional Ownership could provide a solution, suggests David Wyndham.

A “Fractional ownership as supplemental lift can be a solution when you are faced with vastly different trip requirements”.

28

few years ago I had a client with a difficult set of air transportation requirements. They regularly flew up and down the East Coast of the US with three to four people. Rarely were they in the air for longer than three hours, yet several times each month they needed 10 to 12 seats on those trips. The client operated a single business jet that seated six, and was in a quandary as to whether a second jet of the same or a bigger jet with 12 seats should be purchased. Neither option was financially appealing to them. Fractional ownership as supplemental lift can be a solution when you are faced with vastly different trip requirements. Imagine that shortrange trips with light passenger loads form 85% of your business trips. The other 15% may be international or require high passenger loads. A light jet or turboprop may be suitable for 85% of those missions, but the

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

www.AvBuyer.com

remaining 15% require something larger. A larger business jet is capable of flying 100% of those missions, but costs more to own and operate than the smaller aircraft – so adding a fractional share of a large jet would give you the needed capability for U 100% of your missions, but at a lower cost.

What the Boardroom needs to know about Business Aviation

GRADUAL ADAPTATION TO DEMAND A second client utilized their business aircraft a lot (600 hours per year). They were seeing increasing numbers of refused trips because the aircraft was already booked. Demand was starting to exceed supply, and they estimated an 8-10% annual increase in their flying hours over the next five years. If they got a second aircraft, their supply would be far greater than the short-term demand, but they felt confident that the demand would continue to increase. As with the first client mentioned above, the financial alternative of doubling their flight operation that particular year was not appealing to them. Fractional ownership may be a good addition to an existing flight operation experiencing increased demand. At some point, utilization will increase to the point that the aircraft is flying as much as it can, given the schedule. A fractional share may be a way to bridge the inability to meet today’s flying schedule until demand increases sufficiently to justify a whole aircraft. Both of the above clients needed additional air transportation, but both were only thinking in terms of whole aircraft ownership. By broadening their search for a possible solution to fractional ownership, a solution was found.

SUPPLEMENT, NOT REPLACEMENT Note: In the case of both of the above clients, I suggested fractional ownership as supplemental airlift, not as a replacement for the wholly owned aircraft. The first client needed, and got, a bigger aircraft for the 25% of their flying that needed the 12 seats. The second client got a fractional share of an aircraft to meet their short-term growth needs while their travel needs expanded to a point that buying a second aircraft a few years

30

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

down to road would make good financial sense. It is rare that a single aviation organization is able to meet 100% of the demand 100% of the time; especially those with a single aircraft. Fractional ownership may be a viable option to increase capacity, or add different capabilities. It also may cost less than a whole aircraft.

IDENTIFYING YOUR SOLUTION Fractional ownership contracts are typically for a set number of annual hours for a fixed period, usually five years. While each case is different, the addition of a wholly-owned aircraft to your fleet can make sense where somewhere between 250 to 300 hours of additional travel is anticipated per year. If you anticipate approximately 100 additional hours, charter may not be the best financial alternative, whereas fractional could be. But, if you need approximately 50 hours in the near-term future only (while your wholly-owned aircraft is scheduled to be unavailable for heavy maintenance, for example) then charter or a jet card, as opposed to a five-year fractional contract is your best solution. Look at the total costs to provide the service. Run the numbers. You have many options available and you need to consider all of them. Fractional aircraft ownership may be a good supplement to your wholly owned aircraft. It can add new or expanded capability, and it may do it for less than the cost of adding another aircraft. Be prepared, however. It requires study and analysis, as do all good decisions.

“Fractional ownership may be a viable option to increase capacity, or add different capabilities. It also may cost less than a whole aircraft.”

BUSINESS AVIATION AND THE BOARDROOM

An Aviation Tax Recap: Moving Forward in Reverse Chris Younger is a partner at GKG Law, P.C. practicing in the firm’s Business Aircraft Group. He focuses his legal practice on business aircraft transactions as well as issues relating to federal and state taxation and regulation of business aircraft ownership and operations. Mr. Younger can be contacted at cyounger@gkglaw.com

There have been (or possibly will be) several key changes to aviation-related tax laws in 2012, the effects of which will carry into 2013. Chris Younger summarizes a few of these changes below. FET & MANAGED AIRCRAFT n March 2012, the IRS published Chief Counsel Memorandum 201210026 (the CCM), in which the IRS concluded that control of an aircraft’s pilots is the primary factor in determining which party has possession, command and control of an aircraft for purposes of imposing transportation excise taxes on payments relating to the operation of that aircraft. Under the facts described in the CCM, the IRS determined that virtually all fees and reimbursements paid by the owner of an aircraft to its aircraft management company are subject to FET when the aircraft management company has primary control of the aircraft’s pilots. The IRS’s conclusion in the CCM is not necessarily new. However, it interprets over fifty years of prior IRS rulings in a way that is aggressive, and, to some extent, unprecedented. As we move into 2013, it will be interesting to see how the IRS’s stance on this issue evolves and whether the IRS publishes additional guidance. In the interim, aircraft owners and charter management companies need to be cognizant of the IRS’s more aggressive position and be vigilant in structuring aircraft operations in a manner that mitigates the risk that the IRS will impose FET on payments made by an aircraft owner to a charter management company.

What the Boardroom needs to know about Business Aviation

FUEL SURTAX

BONUS DEPRECIATION

Effective April 1, 2012, the IRS began imposing a new 14.1¢ per gallon fuel surtax that applies to owner flights on fractional program aircraft in lieu of the 7.5% federal air transportation “ticket tax.” The new 14.1¢ per gallon tax was enacted as part of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. Prior to this change, the IRS had taken the position that the ticket tax applies to all fees paid to fractional aircraft program management companies by owners of such aircraft. In connection with the implementation of the new 14.1¢ per gallon fuel surtax, the IRS published Notice 2012-27, which provides some limited guidance concerning the implementation of the ruling. However, questions regarding its application in specific situations remain unanswered. For example, it is unclear whether the new tax applies in lieu of the “ticket tax” where a particular flight is operated for a fractional interest owner under FAR Part 135. It appears that the answer to this question is “yes”, however the IRS has not issued specific guidance regarding this issue. As the New Year unfolds, it will be important to track any additional IRS or other guidance that is made available regarding the application of this tax in specific situations.

Many key Federal income tax provisions, including those relating to bonus depreciation, are set to expire at the end of 2012. At press time it is unclear which of these provisions will be extended into 2013 and what final form they will take. However, it does not appear likely that the expiring provisions relating to bonus depreciation will be extended again. As it stands now, 50% bonus depreciation is generally allowed for aircraft acquired by a taxpayer pursuant to a written binding contract entered into before January 1, 2013 and placed in service before January 1, 2013 (except for “certain aircraft” or aircraft having long production periods which must be placed in service prior to January 1, 2014). Unless these bonus depreciation provisions are extended, the ability to acquire an aircraft and elect to claim bonus depreciation in the amount of 50% of the aircraft’s purchase price will expire at the end of 2012. Therefore, to the extent possible, an aircraft buyer who is interested in acquiring an aircraft that is eligible for bonus depreciation should immediately explore the possibility of doing so.

BUSINESS AVIATION AND THE BOARDROOM

Year-End Insurance Review Stuart Hope is a co-owner of Hope Aviation Insurance. His career as an aviation insurance broker began in 1979, and today he is a frequent speaker/author on insurance & risk management topics. He also serves on the NBAA Tax, Insurance and Risk Management Committee. Mr. Hope can be contacted at shope@hopeaviation.com

Stuart Hope reviews the topics he covered in 2012 and creates an abbreviated checklist for a bulletproof aviation insurance program. If your aviation oversight lacks these strategies, commit to correcting the situation before a problem arises. INSURING FOR INDIRECT EXPOSURE (PART 1) f your company decides it will allow employees to operate privately owned aircraft on company business, you should have a two-pronged insurance approach. First: have a written protocol in force, detailing exactly what coverage the employee owner must carry. The firm’s directive should prescribe a minimum acceptable liability limit, mandate the

I

employer company be named as additional insured, and stipulate that the insurance contract be primary without right of contribution from any insurance the employer may carry. Second: your firm needs to purchase a Non-Owned Aircraft Liability policy. If your company decides to use the technique of risk avoidance and simply prohibit use of privately owned aircraft on company business, again you will need to institute a written policy communicating that fact clearly and often to all employees. Understand this process doesn’t relieve you of liability. If an employee doesn’t get the message or simply disregards the policy, you still have an exposure. Thus you should consider purchase of a NonOwned Aircraft Liability policy for protection.

INSURING FOR INDIRECT EXPOSURE (PART 2) An interchange agreement, as defined under the US Federal Aviation Regulations, is an arrangement where an aircraft owner leases his aircraft to another aircraft owner in exchange for equal time on the other owner’s aircraft when needed. Time sharing agreements allow an owner to receive specifically-defined cost reimbursement from a nonowner [e.g. subsidiary company] for the use of his aircraft. These agreements are legal documents and contain specific insurance requirements between the parties involved. It is critical to forward ANY contract you enter relating to your aircraft to your insurance broker for review and compliance. Such action is essential to assure that insurance/ indemnity requirements are satisfied. Make certain the contract U

BUSINESS AVIATION AND THE BOARDROOM requirements and the insurance policy are in sync. From a risk management perspective, consider whether using mixed crews is a good idea. Best practice may dictate not, but reality might require it.

PUNC: PILOTS

“Best advice is to remember a majority of accidents and incidents are attributed to pilot error, so the insurance company cares greatly about who pilots your aircraft.”

42

The four areas of the aviation insurance policy that result in the largest percentage of claim denials can be identified by using the acronym PUNC (Pilots – Use – Named Insured – Contracts). Get these four correct and you’ve got 85% of your coverage nailed down tight. Best advice is to remember a majority of accidents and incidents are attributed to pilot error, so the insurance company cares greatly about who pilots your aircraft. They do deny claims when an unapproved pilot is at the controls! Consider keeping a copy of the approved pilots section of your policy in the cockpit as a reminder. Make certain the required recurrent training is communicated to all pertinent parties and completed within the allotted time. There is no grace period here. Any pilot used regularly should be listed on the policy by name. Prior to using anyone other than your regular pilot(s), I strongly recommend having that pilot complete a pilot form verifying his credentials, submitting that pilot form to your aviation insurance broker and obtaining the blessing of the insurance carrier.

PUNC: USE One of the least understood (and therefore most dangerous) aspects of an aviation insurance policy is the Approved Use clause. This provision spells out exactly what use [Commercial or Non-Commercial]

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

www.AvBuyer.com

the insurance carrier has agreed to cover. The corresponding definition of the agreed-upon use in the insurance policy will also detail the “compensation” an aircraft owner may receive for the operation of his/her aircraft. Particularly with respect to aircraft written for Non-Commercial use, the allowable reimbursement can vary widely. I strongly urge you to call your aviation insurance broker and review exactly what your clause states. Be sure to communicate to your flight department precisely what is allowable and thus insured.

PUNC: NAMED INSUREDS In layman’s terms the Named Insureds are the owners of the policy. They are entitled to all coverage, have the right to cancel, add or change coverage. They also have the right and responsibility to coordinate with the insurer on any claim, receive claim checks, return premium checks and respond to cancellation notices. On the other hand, an Additional Insured simply shares certain parts of your liability coverage and does not have any other rights under the policy. Many owners make the mistake of simply listing the registered owner (often a sole-asset LLC) as the only "Named Insured" and possibly listing the true operating company or principal owner as Additional Insureds. If your policy doesn’t already have it, add the Broad Form Named Insureds clause if available. Properly structuring the Named Insureds is crucial because the entities or persons who truly need the protection may not have it if the policy isn't written properly.

Aircraft Index see Page 4


BG 6 Dec12_FinanceSept 20/11/2012 16:03 Page 3

What the Boardroom needs to know about Business Aviation Because the wording of aviation insurance policies is unique from one aviation insurance company to the next, it is critical that you review your unique risk profile in depth with your aviation insurance broker. He or she can help you properly structure your policy’s Named Insured clause before the loss.

PUNC: CONTRACTS Many of us routinely sign rental car agreements, bank loan documents and internet site use clauses without even a cursory review. Why? Because we know we won’t get the car, the loan, or access to the internet site if we don’t. That may be true, but don’t make that same mistake when addressing contracts relating to your aircraft. The financial consequences are exponentially higher. Aviation contracts can and should be negotiated. When evaluating any contract related to your aircraft, contact your broker and attorney during the contract review process (if not earlier). The devil is in the detail, and contract review is an integral part of a wellrun flight department’s risk management strategy.

SILLY INSURANCE QUESTIONS The most important insurance decision you will make is the selection of your insurance broker. If you do nothing else, getting this step right will yield the greatest return and is considered a “best practice” by financial and legal experts in the aviation industry. A broker who deals with general lines of coverage is probably very good at taking care of your overall insurance needs. But would you hire a general practitioner if you required heart surgery? You would hire a heart surgeon, I suspect. Business Aviation insurance is no different. You need a professional aviation insurance broker on your side.

LIABILITY AND THE CARRIAGE OF ELECTED OFFICIALS Many aircraft owners choose to give their favorite election candidate a “donation” by allowing them to use their private aircraft in support of the politician’s campaign. There are two primary areas of concern for owners here. First and foremost, consider the high profile nature of the passenger(s) being carried. If an accident should occur while you are providing a candidate and his family or staff with transportation, it will make national headlines. The first choice you have to make is whether the liability exposure is worth the benefit of providing access to your aircraft. If the answer is yes, then you need to make sure your insurance policy covers exactly what you are doing. Thus your next consideration deals with insurance. Are you carrying an adequate limit of liability protection? Does your policy’s usage clause allow you to be reimbursed for flights in your aircraft at the amount prescribed by the Federal Election Commission? It is critical to communicate with your aviation insurance broker the precise terms of reimbursement for these flights and to secure a response in writing that the flight(s) are approved under your policy. Advertising Enquiries see Page 8

PREPARING FOR INSURANCE RENEWAL IN 2013 Probably the biggest mistake many insureds make during renewal is failure to supply requested insurance information in a timely manner. One of the biggest influences on an underwriter’s decisionmaking process is who pilots the aircraft, and what kind of recurrent training they receive. Review the insured value of your aircraft. The goal is to insure it for the current market value or the lien amount, whichever is more. Ask for quotes to increase your liability coverage. If you feel your account “shows well”, have your insurance broker request an on-site visit from the insurance company’s underwriter. With attention to these “check list” items, you can be assured that your company and its flight operations are covered adequately in 2013.

BUSINESS AVIATION AND THE BOARDROOM

Turbo Deliveries: Flat, but encouraging. Why do turborops seem to periodically enjoy better times than the jet and piston aircraft market segments? Perhaps it has something to do with owner-flying. The top-selling turboprops tend to be aircraft that are continually popular among pilots who fly for their own businesses. hile exceptions exist anywhere, generally turboprop airplanes offer a common set of attractive attributes. The engines are responsible for most. For example, Turboprop engines benefit today from propeller designs far more sophisticated than only a decade ago. The results are lower maintenance costs, longer overhaul cycles, improved climb and cruise performance, and in turn this contributes to reduced noise levels in the cabin. In addition, specific fuel consumption numbers continue to improve, with the practical effect of allowing the use of higher power levels without

W

suffering a proportionate increase in fuel consumption/costs. That, in turn, contributes to improvements in take-off, climb and cruise speed. Another advantage is the single-pilot operational simplicity engineered into even the multi-engine turboprops. The only exceptions to the sum total of these benefits exist among the unpressurized models that are available, and form a small, important and dynamic segment of the turboprop market. Today’s turboprops offer a broad range of turbine performance, propeller cost-effectiveness (some with at, or near Light jet cruise performance capabilities) with cabin and cockpit accoutrements that rival the best of the fanjet strata. Looking at just the traditional turboprop manufacturers delivering business aircraft, we see a flat market with 222 deliveries in the first nine months of the year compared with 223 a year ago. On a quarterly basis the news is more encouraging, however. Deliveries are up about 6.5 percent, with 85 deliveries compared with 80 at this time a year ago.

TURBOPROP PRICE GUIDE The following turboprop Retail Price Guide represents current average values published in the Aircraft Bluebook. The study spans model years from 1993 through Fall 2012 (20 year period). Values reported are in USD millions, with each reporting point representing the current average retail value published in the Aircraft Bluebook, by its corresponding calendar year. For example, the Piaggio Avanti P180 reported in the Fall 2012 edition of the Bluebook shows $3.3 million for a 2003 model, $3.5 million for a 2004 model and so forth. Aircraft are listed alphabetically. Aircraft specifications for these models can be found in the Specifications and Performance section of this issue.

AIRCRAFT COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS AIRBUS ACJ319 AIRBUS ACJ319

BOEING BBJ

Airbus ACJ319 by Michael Chase n this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, we provide information on the Airbus ACJ319 business jet. The current New/Used fleet percentage split for the ACJ319 business jet is 67% new and 33% pre-owned according to JETNET records. Over the following paragraphs, we’ll consider some of the productivity parameters including payload, range, speed and cabin size, along with current market value. The field of study also includes the Boeing BBJ.

I

BRIEF HISTORY The market for large executive cabin class aircraft began in 1959 with the introduction of the Boeing 707 jet. In the late 1990s demand forced two leading commercial OEMs to address the market with the BBJ (Boeing Business Jet) in 1998 and ACJ (Airbus Corporate Jet) in 1999.

The ACJ319 is fitted with a new-generation super-critical wing for higher cruise speed and better fuel economy, an advanced glass cockpit, and fly-by-wire flight controls and side-stick controller. Moreover, the ACJ can be fitted with up to six auxiliary center tanks (ACT) in the fuselage, boosting its range. This aircraft can be RVSM certified when service bulletin A320-34-1137 is complied with. Table A (previous page) shows there are 247 ACJ and BBJ BusinessLiners in-operation today, excluding the 496 converted airliners (see Table B). Airbus currently has 94 corporate/business jets in operation (38% of the total fleet of 247). Table B (top, left) shows the total number of converted airliners by OEM including the number ‘For Sale’. According to JETNET, there are currently 103 Airbus airliners in operation that have been converted to corporate/business usage. Boeing has the largest number of converted airliners with 227 out of 496 (46%) and the most ‘For Sale’ with 26 of any of the OEMs.

CHART A - CABIN VOLUME

The data contained in Table C (left) is published in the B&CA, May 2012 issue, but 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 Airbus ACJ319 ‘Available payload with Maximum Fuel’ at 1,710 pounds is significantly less than that offered by the Boeing BBJ (4,723 lbs).

In spite of its lower available payload with maximum fuel weight, according to Conklin & de Decker the cabin volume of the ACJ319 at 5,900 cubic feet is 9.5 percent larger than the BBJ aircraft (which measures 5,390 cubic feet), as shown in Chart A (left). These spacious jets are commonly used by sports teams, governments and various global corporations.

Fuel Usage (GPH)

Each of the ACJ’s CFM International CFM565B7 engines offer a thrust rating of 20,250 pounds. The BBJ, meanwhile, is also powered by a pair of CFM International CFM56-7 engines, each with a higher thrust rating of 27,300 pounds. Table D (left), sourced from the Aircraft Cost Calculator (ACC), shows the fuel usage by each aircraft in our field of study. The ACJ319 - at 685 gallons per hour (GPH) - uses 96 gallons per hour (12.3%) less fuel than the BBJ, at 781 GPH.

Planning and Purchasing Handbook and the August 2012 B&CA Operations Planning Guide we will compare our aircraft. The nationwide average Jet-A fuel cost in the August 2012 edition was $6.30 per gallon at press time, so for the sake of comparison we’ll chart the numbers as published. Note: Fuel price used from this source does not represent an average price for the year. Chart B (right) details ‘Cost per Mile’, and compares the ACJ319 to the BBJ factoring direct costs, and with each aircraft flying a 6,000nm mission with 1,600 pounds (eight passengers) payload. The ACJ319 is at $13.58 per nautical mile compared to the BBJ at $11.47, which is greater than $2.00 or 11.8% more per nautical mile.

TOTAL VARIABLE COST COMPARISONS The ‘Total Variable Cost’, illustrated in Chart C, (right) is defined as the cost of fuel expense, maintenance labor expense, scheduled parts expense and miscellaneous trip expense. The total variable cost for the ACJ319 at $5,999 has an 18.3% higher variable cost per hour compared to the BBJ at $5,071.

The result is a very large number so for the purpose of charting, each result is divided by one billion. The examples plotted are confined to the aircraft in this study. A computed curve fit on this plot would not be very tight, but when all business jets are considered the “r” squared factor would equal a number above 0.9. Others may choose different parameters, but serious business jet buyers are usually impressed with price, range, speed, and cabin size.

SUMMARY OBSERVATIONS After consideration of the higher price of $10m, greater cabin volume, and less fuel usage, we can conclude that the Airbus ACJ319, as shown in the productivity index Chart D, does offer competitive value. However, the ACJ319 as ❯ Advertising Enquiries see Page 8

Table E (previous page) represents the average pre-owned retail price from Vref for each aircraft. The last two columns of information show the number of aircraft in-operation, and the percentage “For Sale”, as per JETNET. It is interesting to note that with 70 aircraft in-operation today (66% new and 33% used), only 2 or 2.9% of the ACJ319 fleet is currently ‘For Sale’ (traditionally a seller’s market). The BBJ is in a much different market position with 17 or 13.4% of the fleet of 127 aircraft for sale.

Within the preceding paragraphs we have touched upon several of the key attributes that business jet operators value. However, there are often other qualities such as service and support that factor in a buying decision, but which are beyond the scope of this article. The ACJ319 business jet has its advantages for those seeking a larger cabin volume - so those operators in the market should

ARGUS View TRAQPak data shows that October 2012 produced the second largest month of business aircraft flight activity since January 2009 (second only to March 2011). October flight activity finished up +8.1% over September 2012. The results by operational category were strong across the board with Part 135 activity ending +11.7% above the previous month. Part 91 and fractional followed with positive gains of +7.5% and +2.9% in that order. Aircraft category results concluded the month with all categories up at least +6.0%. Looking at individual market segments the fractional turboprop segments posted a 20.4% month-over-month decrease*, while the fractional large jet segment posted a +17.7% month-over-month increase. Reviewing year-over year-activity (October 2012 vs. October 2011) revealed an overall increase of +2.8%. Results by operational category were positive for the period, with the exception of fractional activity which finished down -5.0% from October 2011.

Generally speaking, companies not using Business Aviation during the recession lost profitability, employees, and even dropped off the S&P 500 rankings at far higher rates than companies using Business Aviation, the study found, revealing that use of an airplane for business has a positive impact on enterprise resiliency following the Great Recession period of 2007-2011.

Comparisons of employment matched the better performance of Business Aviation users in financial measures of shareholder value, including revenues, earnings and profit growth and market capitalization. The three previous NEXA studies, which analyzed Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 companies, S&P 600 small-cap companies, and government use of business aircraft at the federal, state and local levels, all concluded that Business Aviation contributes to private and public enterprises’ ability to deliver greater value to shareholders and taxpayers. / More from www.noplanenogain.org

Market Indicators

JP Morgan View Some large cabin metrics are deteriorating: Heavy jet demand has been a Relative bright spot amid ongoing weakness across the industry, but this is changing. Heavy jet inventories increased 70 bps in Q3 versus flat inventories for Medium jets and a 50 bp decline for Light jets. Heavy jet backlogs have not grown this year for Gulfstream, Bombardier (ex NetJets) or Dassault either. Gulfstream’s President recently noted that Chinese demand was falling from elevated levels in 2011, and China was a key driver of large jet performance out of the downturn. JP Morgan views the introduction of the G650 as a mitigating factor for Gulfstream, but is increasingly concerned about a correction in demand for larger jets overall.

EARNINGS AND NBAA MAKE FOR A BUSY MONTH: TXT kicked off earnings October 17, followed by HON October 19. JP Morgan expected GD October 24 and COL to report on October 26. BBD/B should have reported November 7. As usual, JP Morgan focused mostly on

changes in backlog, as they are typically-best indicators of current demand. With the NBAA’s annual meeting from October 30November 1, manufacturers were expected to emphasize the potential for rising deliveries beyond 2012; pockets of demand strength; and the products they are developing. However, with US and European flight ops flat-to-down YTD; Chinese demand facing pressure; and OEM backlogs yet to turn up decisively, optimism was expected to be muted.

USED INVENTORY DOWN, YOUNG JET INVENTORY UP: Used inventory of in-production models ticked down 10 bps to 10.5% during September and has remained in the 10.4%-10.7% range for six months. JP Morgan did, however, see a significant jump in inventories for the “toddler and pre-K” fleet (aircraft 0-5 years old), which are the aircraft that compete most directly with new jets. This data lagged by a month, so it reflects the change during August, but the absolute increase of

Market Indicators - December 2012

25 jets was the largest since March 2009. Cessna accounted for about half the increase, with notable contributions from Bombardier (Challengers) and Eclipse. JP Morgan estimates that 7.5% of the “toddler and pre-K” fleet is now for sale. This represents a 60 bp increase YTD and compares to an average of 6.6% since 2005.

AVG. ASKING PRICE FALLS 2.5% IN SEPTEMBER: September dampened hopes for stabilization with the steepest sequential decline since April 2011. Heavy and Medium jets saw material declines of 2.8% and 2.5%, respectively, while Light jet prices ticked up 0.4%.

ARE FLIGHT OPS READY TO TURN? US bizjet flight ops increased 1.7% year-overyear in August. This is anemic by most standards, but it is the best result since January (adjusting February for the leap year), and JP Morgan would be watching for momentum when September data eventually emerged.

Embraer View Embraer Executive Jets presented its Business Aviation market outlook for China last month at Airshow China 2012, in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province. The forecast predicts a total demand for 650 business aircraft by the year 2022, with a total value of US$24 billion, representing 9% of the world deliveries’ value. • Company analysis shows that the overall environment in China is fostering the development of its Business Aviation. • The rapid development of its national economy generates more Chinese companies listed on Fortune 500 and more High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWI) as well. • Data show the annual growth rate of the country’s HNWI (with investable assets over 10 million RMB) stayed at 25% over the past five years. • The latest Hurun Report indicates billionaires (in RMB) in China increased by 87% in 2012 over 2011.

The country’s Business Aviation culture is gaining maturity, Embraer observes. Executive jets are recognized more and more as tools for improving productivity for business elites. Today, the country has a fleet of 267 executive jets, 77% of which are super-midsize to ultra-large jets, up from only 78 jets in 2007. In the China market, Embraer has booked

FORECAST ANALYSIS REVIEW

Honeywell Et Al: Comparing the verdicts on the BizAv Outlook.

by Mike Potts he message from Honeywell regarding the near-term prospects is that the ‘new normal’ looks flat for business jet sales. Rob Wilson, president of Honeywell Business and General Aviation’s remarks came at the company’s annual media briefing in Orlando, Florida on the eve of the NBAA Convention in Orlando, Florida. Wilson said business jet deliveries are likely to be in the 680 to 720 range this year and about the same - or only slightly better in 2013, and the next two or three years after. The total isn’t expected to exceed 800 before 2017. Steeper growth is expected afterwards, driven to some extent by current develop-

T

ment programs that will help spur demand for new aircraft around the middle of the decade. Total jet sales are expected to reach the 1,000-level in the 2019/2020 timeframe and remain steady for the balance of the forecast period. Honeywell doesn’t expect the business jet market to reach the levels achieved in 2007 (1,100+) or 2008 (1,300+) at any time during the coming decade. As it has done in each of the last 21 years, Honeywell publicly released its annual Business Aviation Outlook, predicting the delivery of up to 10,000 business jets worth $250 billion in constant 2012 dollars over the years 2012 to 2022. This compares with last year’s forecast of 10,000 worth $230 billion for the period 2011 to 2021. The projected

increase in billing values totals about nine percent, and reflects a continuing and expanding trend that we’ve seen over the past several years – a preference among new aircraft buyers for larger cabins and longerrange aircraft. Wilson said the relatively flat growth curve Honeywell is projecting “reflects the protracted nature of the global economic recovery,” which he believes will accelerate toward the middle of the decade. “Over the medium-term, a return to historical growth conditions supported by globalization, wealth creation in developing nations and new aircraft development should boost orders and support accelerated growth,” he said. ❯ continued on page 72

FORECAST ANALYSIS REVIEW Part of the methodology Honeywell uses to develop its survey includes interviews with more than 1,500 non-fractional operators around the world. Based on this, it tabulates purchase expectations over the coming five years in order to calculate probable aircraft buys. Currently, Honeywell reports, about 30 percent of operators expect to replace or add new aircraft in the next five years. Purchase expectations vary widely by region with the highest currently coming from operators in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). The countries are all experiencing high growth economies, and Honeywell says more than 45 percent of operators there expect to add aircraft in the next two years. Asia, the Middle East and Europe also report higher than average purchase expectations, while operators in North America have the lowest level, at about 25 percent. Because the North American market is larger, it is still expected to account for the greatest number of new aircraft buys over the next five years, at about 53 percent of the total market. The international market is predicted to total 47 percent, with Europe and Latin America accounting for 18 percent each, the Asia/Pacific region for seven percent, and Africa and Middle East for five percent. Of these sales, 42 percent are expected to

be big-cabin aircraft, including ‘Very High Speed and Ultra Long Range’ models that are only now starting to reach the market. Midsize aircraft are predicted to be 28 percent of the new jet purchases and small cabin aircraft form 30 percent. Because they cost so much more, the big cabin airplanes will account for 69 percent of the dollars spent, while midsize models consume 20 percent and the small cabin aircraft 11 percent of the sales dollars. In its overall outlook for the market, Honeywell believes that we are at, or past what it is calling the trough or low-point of the recession, and that improved orderrates – particularly in the lower- and middle-segments of the jet market – mark the beginning of an upturn. It notes that the larger-cabin jets fared better throughout the recession than the lower-end of the market, and they are continuing to do so. International demand is expanding and Honeywell expects it to lead the recovery.

DIFFERENCES OF PERSPECTIVE Honeywell isn’t alone in its view of the Business Aviation prospects for the upcoming decade. JETNET, the aviation data firm also issued a forecast at NBAA, with a similar outlook. This year marks the second edition of the JETNET forecast, which debuted at the NBAA Convention last year.

Yet another forecast of the Business Aviation landscape comes from Bombardier, which issued its most recent edition in May at EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland. Since the three forecasts cover the same market over approximately the same timespans, you might expect their findings to be quite similar. They are not. The JETNET forecast initially appears to parallel Honeywell’s predictions fairly closely, but a thorough look at the numbers reveals it to be somewhat more optimistic about the size of the market, particularly in the out-years. Bombardier’s forecast is far more optimistic than either Honeywell or JETNET, even predicting that the market will grow to exceed its 2007/2008 levels, perhaps by as early as 2016. JETNET believes the market will achieve these levels, but about three years later than Bombardier expects. Any comparison of these forecasts needs to be approached with some caution. They all cover different time spans and they don’t all define the market in exactly the same way, so some of the differences may lie in their individual approach to the data. In other words, they could be saying the same thing in different ways. Nonetheless, they seem to reach quite different conclusions so it’s interesting to see why and where the differences really lie, and ❯ continued on page 74

FORECAST ANALYSIS REVIEW perhaps speculate about which forecast might prove to be the more accurate.

JETNET’S OUTLOOK The forecast from JETNET covers the 10year span from 2012 to 2021 and projects delivery of 10,424 business jets during the period, worth an estimated $253 billion in current dollars. On the surface, that looks very close to what Honeywell is saying, but it really isn’t. Notwithstanding the oddly precise 10,424-unit estimate, JETNET’s fleet total is about four percent higher than Honeywell’s – not insignificant. A close look also reveals that JETNET’s sales total comes in a shorter period than Honeywell’s – 10 years as opposed to 11. So JETNET is really predicting an average annual market of 1,043 aircraft while Honeywell is forecasting an annual average of 909 units. That’s a 14.75 percent bigger market over the next decade, which is a major difference. For some manufacturers, that could be the difference between prosperity and scraping by. JETNET’s $253 billion sales estimate also gains in significance when balanced against its delivery total. The JETNET total is only one percent higher than Honeywell’s estimate (albeit over a shorter period), but that suggests JETNET thinks a higher percentage of jet sales will come from the small

and mid-size segments – quite different to what Honeywell expects. JETNET’s market projections confirm this. It outlines the largest number of sales over the next decade will be in the Light Jet category, not the Heavy Jets as Honeywell predicts. JETNET’s forecast is that 37 percent of the jets delivered in the next decade will be Light Jets, 33 percent Medium Jets and 30 percent Large Jets. These Large Jets will still account for the bulk of the sales dollars – 64 percent in JETNET’s estimation, while the Medium Jets will accrue 20 percent of the billings and Light Jets 11 percent. A slightly larger percentage of sales originate with international customers – 51 percent in JETNET’s model. Europe and Asia Pacific account for a higher percentage (32 percent) than Honeywell is predicting (25 percent), and some of this difference may come from Honeywell’s decision to recognize the BRIC countries as a separate economic entity. JETNET agrees that jet sales this year and next will be relatively flat – it is predicting 699 and 732 respectively – but its forecast accelerates much more rapidly than Honeywell’s in the following years, with deliveries topping 1,000 units by 2017 and extending above 1,200 in 2019 and 2020 before tailing off slightly in 2021.

BOMBARDIER’S OUTLOOK Bombardier’s forecast is even more optimistic than JETNET’s, although it takes a little interpretation to determine by exactly how much. Bombardier’s forecast is closely tied to its product line and the economic forces impacting it. It does not include the smaller jet categories that fall below its Learjet series, and it also does not include airliner-based business jets. So Bombardier’s forecast of 9,800 jet deliveries between 2012 and 2021 is not necessarily smaller than JETNET forecast of 10,424 for the same period. In fact, it’s probably larger. In Bombardier’s forecast it tells us what models it isn’t counting in the market. This includes all the Citation products below the CJ3 (which, among other models includes the Mustang and the Embraer Phenom 100). If we take the GAMA 2011 year-end delivery numbers as a baseline, there were 695 business jet deliveries reported that year. If we subtract all the models Bombardier says it isn’t counting in its forecast, the total is 150 units, leaving us with a delivery total of 545 jet deliveries that apply to the Bombardier forecast. That’s approximately 78.5 percent of the total. So we can deduce, taking 78.5 percent of JETNET’s 10,424-unit total, that would give us a number that would approximately ❯ continued on page 78

Forecast Comp Analysis_Gil WolinNov06 20/11/2012 11:10 Page 4

FORECAST ANALYSIS REVIEW compare with Bombardier’s 9,800-unit forecast. Applying this conversion, the JETNET total equals 8,183 - so we can see the Bombardier total is actually 19.7 percent larger. If true, this puts Bombardier’s forecast for the next decade about 30 percent above the total Honeywell expects in its outlook. This is also supported by Bombardier’s financial projections, which call for business jet billings in the $266 billion range for the period 2012 to 2021 – the same period covered by JETNET’s forecast and a year shorter than Honeywell’s. It’s hard to make too many specific comparisons between the Bombardier forecast and the Honeywell and JETNET offerings because Bombardier’s document is structured much differently. It is shorter on details about aircraft types and categories than either of the other two, but much stronger on financial factors. In fact, it has the appearance of a document intended for a financial audience rather than media. The Bombardier forecast actually extends far beyond either JETNET’s or Honeywell’s – it is a 20-year outlook that projects sales and deliveries through 2031. Bombardier expects the next decade to be a strong one for business jets – much better than the current 10-year period. If Bombardier’s prediction is accurate, the

next decade will feature a business jet market that is consistently above 1,200 units a year and reaches 1,500 units annually by 2030. It forecasts a total of 14,200 units with an estimated value of $382 billion. If true, and the above conversion factor is still applicable (admittedly a stretch, but so is any economic forecast extending 20 years into the future), total business jet deliveries could exceed 1,800 units per year. Before you dismiss that as being completely beyond belief, can you remember the year 1995 when jet deliveries totaled just 300 units? A prediction that the market would exceed 1,300 units in the next 15 years would have been considered equally outlandish back then as 1,800 does now. Looking at the full 20-year period, Bombardier is forecasting a market for 24,000 business jets worth $648 billion. Specifically, that includes 10,700 light jets (in the categories Bombardier builds) worth $117 billion. Bombardier acknowledges that this category is currently soft and recovering slowly, but expects it to improve steadily in the coming decade and thrive in the 2020s. The medium jets, which in Bombardier’s view begins at the Challenger 300 level, will form the core of large corporation business jet operations, and account for 7,800 deliveries worth $239 billion by 2032. The

large jets are expected to total 5,500 units worth $292 billion for the same period. This represents a very different division among the jet categories than either Honeywell or JETNET is predicting (although the forecast periods are very different), with Light Jets totaling 44.5 percent, Medium at 32.5 percent and Large Jets at 23 percent in the Bombardier forecast. By comparison, Honeywell’s 10-year predicted breakout is 30 percent Light, 28 percent Medium and 42 percent Heavy. JETNET, meanwhile expects 37 percent Light Jets, 33 percent Medium (very close to the Bombardier forecast) and 30 percent Large.

THE UNITING FACTOR There is definite agreement between Honeywell, JETNET and Bombardier on at least one aspect of the market. All three agree that the bottom of the recession, which has been dubbed “the trough” by some market pundits, came somewhere between 2011 and 2012 and that we are now on the way back up to prosperity. Certainly everyone involved in this industry is hoping (and perhaps even praying) that this part of the forecasts is absolutely accurate. ❯ More information from: www.honeywell.com; www.jetnet.com; www.bombardier.com

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

The following describes the content of each cost element used in The Aircraft Cost Evaluator. There are no sales taxes included in these costs. VARIABLE COST PER HOUR Includes fuel, maintenance reserves for routine maintenance, engine/ propeller/APU reserves, and miscellaneous expenses. SPECIFICATIONS - GENERAL: CABIN DIMENSIONS Cabin Height, Width, and Length are based on a completed interior. On “cabin-class” aircraft, the length is measured from the cockpit divider to the aft pressure bulkhead (or aft cabin bulkhead if unpressurized). For small cabin aircraft, the distance is from the cockpit firewall to the aft bulkhead. Height and width are the maximum within that cabin space. Cabin Volume is the interior volume, with headliner in place, without chairs or other furnishings. Cabin Door Height and Width are the measurements of the main passenger cabin entry door. BAGGAGE Internal baggage volume is the baggage volume that is accessible in flight by the passenger. This amount may vary with the interior layout. External baggage volume is the baggage volume not accessible in flight (nacelle lockers, etc.). CREW SEATS/SEATS EXECUTIVE This is the typical crew and passenger seating commonly used on the aircraft. This is not the maximum certificated seats of the aircraft. These numbers may vary for different operations (Corporate, Commercial, EMS, etc.). WEIGHTS: • Maximum Take-Off Weight and Maximum Landing Weight are specified during aircraft certification. • Basic Operating Weight is the empty weight, typically equipped, plus unusable fuel and liquids, flight crew @ 200 pounds each and their supplies. • Useable fuel is the useable fuel in gallons x 6.7 pounds per gallon (Jet fuel) or 6 pounds per gallon (AVGAS). • Payload with Full Fuel is the useful load minus the useable fuel. The useful load is based on the maximum ramp weight minus the basic operating weight. • Maximum Payload is the maximum zero fuel weight minus the basic operating weight. SPECIFICATIONS PERFORMANCE RANGE: • Range - Seats Full is the maximum IFR range of the aircraft with all passenger seats occupied. This uses the NBAA IFR alter-

www.AvBuyer.com

nate 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 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 Takeoff 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 4

THE AVIATION LEADERSHIP ROUNDTABLE

Placing A Value On Advocacy here is no doubt that advocacy is priceless. One of my favorite sayings is, “Price is a one-time thing and cost is a lifetime thing”. So would you be willing to pay an extra fee to someone, based on the price of the job that is being contemplated, or would you be willing to pay a fee based on the risk that could be mitigated, or dollars saved by the advocacy? Take insurance for instance. Would the fee be based on a percentage of the policy cost or a percentage of the face value of the policy? Or would you pay anyone anything? Is there a business in this niche? In some sense, what I do for a living could be considered an advocacy position. I would have a hard time believing that any client of mine would need to pay anything additional to hire someone to be sure I was doing my job correctly. So could the answer be that we keep pushing our industry players who are service providers to just do a better job at keeping focused on the customers they have? That is certainly one path to take. We should not settle for less than excellence from the vendors and providers we use. In Orlando at the NBAA Convention I spoke to four people about the idea of creating a niche of advocacy: Two were in insurance, one in management and one in maintenance. Each area is clearly customer-centric and all are clearly areas that could use supportive representation. The question is, ‘What would you pay for that layer?’ Providers of the referenced services would say you don’t need that extra layer. They would suggest they already look out for the customer’s best interest when you do business with them. Let’s look closer at the role of the advocate in these certain situations. First, let’s take maintenance. Very often as I visit maintenance facilities for pre-buy inspections I see that when available, the aircraft owners will send their Director of Maintenance to the shop with the aircraft whose daily responsibility would be to keep manpower on the aircraft, as this can tend to drift when someone is not there often, if not daily. The Director of Maintenance will also watch firsthand the discrepancies

T

90

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

which are found, and be sure that labor and parts applied are accurately accounted for on the project. So, what if you did not have a full-time Maintenance Director? It may not be bad to be able to hire on a spot-basis that expertise. No doubt this role can save money as well as time.

Advocacy is just like everything else in our world, it is a people function; people providing help to people. Next, how about an advocacy position in the insurance industry? As an example, let’s imagine that you want to buy a policy and the coverage is complex due to the International travel component. Just going out to get quotes and comparing them on the basis of bottomline cost may not tell the whole story. In fact, you may not know the whole story until it is too late. If there is a claim one day and you find out the policy you chose did not cover the specific claim owing to a misunderstanding of the coverage, the idea that you had someone reviewing all the policies with a keen understanding of the nuances of insurance would be worth plenty, and the cost of this advocacy would most certainly be significantly less than the loss. Finally, in the area of management let us imagine you are a first-time buyer and you have never operated a business aircraft before. I am sure the management company that you choose is reputable and has your best interest at heart. The question is, do you know how to evaluate the maintenance billings each month for parts and labor? Are you able to sort out the intricacies of the multiple areas of reporting given to you in the monthly billing report? It might be useful, at least for the first six months, to have an advocate who can sit at www.AvBuyer.com

your side to review the bill and help build the follow-up questions to ask. Back to the original question, ‘What would you pay for this help?’ Would it be totally unrelated to the job and be an hourly fee like you would pay an attorney? I believe that makes the most sense and provides the best value to the advocacy. The idea of this niche is not new, and maybe the discussion is resurfacing due to an overall reshaping of the service provider in this industry as it goes into recovery mode. Old ideas are coming to light and being repackaged as new ideas. Maybe they are just returning due to the complexity in certain segments like insurance, maintenance and management, and the idea that maybe there is a business to be developed here. Advocacy is just like everything else in our world, it is a people function; people providing help to people. Be sure that if you choose someone to stand at your side you choose wisely. If you believe in the value of this investment don’t buy it based on price. Remember price is a one-time thing; buy it based on cost. The right choice here could have value for a lifetime! ❯ Jay Mesinger is the CEO and Founder of J. Mesinger Corporate Jet Sales, Inc. Jay is on the NBAA Board of Directors and is Chairman of AMAC.

NEXTANT 400XT TEST FLIGHT

A Lot More For A Lot Less Nextant Aerospace 400XT test flight. by Dave Higdon extant Aerospace Chief Pilot Nathan Marker enjoyed something of an operational advantage as he advanced the throttles of the 400XT. He enjoys hand-flying the company demonstrator, and the air-traffic environment on this particular day in Orlando, Florida provided an opportunity to show off how well the light jet handles; its quick acceleration; and deck-angle-challenging climb capabilities – all in the pursuit of clearing the area to show off the remanufactured Beechjet 400A in less constrained airspace over the Atlantic Ocean just to the east. The need to be ready to maneuver while climbing simply goes with the airspace here – and the Nextant 400XT allowed Marker to respond on cue while the two back-cabin occupants conversed with normal voice levels across the length of the cabin.

With that established, let us introduce you to the newest certified option in a light jet – and, arguably, a value leader against virtually every aircraft in its class.

REMAKING A CLASSIC INTO ALMOST-ALL-NEW Company founder Kenn Ricci wanted an airplane that, for all practical purposes, didn’t exist: A light jet built to FAR 25 standards offering space, equipment, efficiency and performance comparable to the newest jets – but at a price point at the low-end of the light jet spectrum. After launching the company in 2007, Ricci and his team selected the Beechjet 400A as a candidate for the program he envisioned to remake an airframe into many operators’ ideal of a great business jet. With 800 units delivered, the Beechjet provided a pool deep enough to make the program viable. Aircraft Index see Page 4

NEXTANT 400XT TEST FLIGHT

From there it was a matter of deliberate research and selecting the components and steps that led to Nextant winning its STCs for the 400XT. Since then, serial production has been established, along with product support and provision of the underpinnings for financing. The 400XT improves on the 400A in many ways, and Nextant says it will cost you about half the price of a new 400A – if it were still in production. What is in production is an airframe rehabilitated from the frames, bulkheads and longerons, out to the skin; then the airframe returns to airworthy with virtually everything else new. Williams FJ44-3AP powerplants replace the original Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D fanjets; these fuel-miserly mills fit into all-new nacelles designed with new pylons that, together, reduce drag, improve handling and reduce fuel use and climb time. (Those pylons sport built-in noise isolation, incidentally, that makes normal-voice conversation between cockpit and aft cabin possible.) Speaking of the cabin, an all-new interior expands on the available space with a redesigned galley forward, an aft-club section sporting 12-inches more seat pitch aft, and a functional lavatory ends the 15-foot-plus cabin which stands a comfortable 4.8 feet tall and 4.9 feet wide. And lest we forget, the two pilots staffing the cockpit get the benefits of a three- (or optional four-) screen ProLine 21 panel from Rockwell Collins, running via new Nextant-manufactured wiring. The basic package sells for slightly under $4 million – right around half of the last 400A/Hawker 400XPs to roll off the line in Wichita. In terms of space, comfort, performAdvertising Enquiries see Page 8

ance and pure efficiency, however, the 400XT occupies its own strata.

PERFORMANCE WHERE IT COUNTS Some compare the airspace of Central Florida to New York and Los Angeles. With Tampa and Orlando international airports separated by barely 70 nautical miles, the proximity between their Class B sectors leaves little room for free flight. A southwesterly heading puts MCO departures overflying Kissimmee Gateway Airport under 15 miles away; a northerly heading from MCO flies you more quickly to the airspace surrounding Orlando Executive Airport (ORL) barely seven nautical away. This particular day poses an above-average challenge, thanks to the added impact of traffic saturation at the three Orlando-area airports from the National Business Aviation Association’s 65th Annual Meeting. Orlando Departure Control cleared N401FL to fly a west departure toward Tampa’s Class Bravo swarm, meaning that Nathan needed to quickly climb the Nextant 400XT demonstrator to 4,000 feet. Once level, Departure almost-as-quickly turn us east toward the Atlantic and less-saturated airspace. The 400XT made the climb to 4,000 msl in barely more than a minute from brake release, and after our turn east the essentially new Light Jet took us to Flight Level 330 in another nine minutes. “We can climb directly to FL440 in 22 minutes,” noted Nathan. He hand-flew the Nextant through heading changes that ATC had ordered to keep the 400XT clear of traffic while still allowing Nathan to demonstrate the climb capabilities of this light jet. Nextant Aerospace is the latest ‘manufacwww.AvBuyer.com

turer’ to attempt to develop a new business line by renewing older, existing aircraft. Kenn Ricci did his research, only settling on a model which met his standards for potential. He made what’s appearing to be a good-odds gamble; a bet that light-jet operators would flock to an option that delivers more performance at greater cost efficiency for its size, range and speed capabilities. In performance terms alone, the Nextant 400XP significantly betters the root product of the revitalized aircraft, the Beechjet 400A. Now dubbed the Hawker 400XP, the airframe from which Nextant creates its remanufactured steed remains in the market, albeit with a future clouded by the ongoing bankruptcy of Hawker Beechcraft Corp. But that financial saga has no influence on the Nextant program, which, some believe, may actually benefit because of the original OEM’s post-bankruptcy plans to end its involvement in jets – the Hawker 400 model included.

400XT SUM EXCEEDS ITS PARTS As noted previously, the Beechjet 400A/ Hawker 400XP stands among Business Aviation’s most-popular Light Jet designs thanks, in large part, to cabin space, reliability and pure speed. The biggest limitation on the 400A/400XP largely grows out of its engine – the JT15D-5 powerplant which once stood among the leaders in Business Aviation. Flying with 4,900 pounds of fuel available the original 400A/400XP offers just 1,333 nautical miles of range, plus NBAA IFR reserves, while flying with a crew of two and four passengers. Climb performance and hot-and-high conditions are restricting, largely because of the limitations and inefficiencies combined ❯ from the JT15D-5 engine and certain WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

Nextant_FinanceSept 20/11/2012 10:11 Page 3

NEXTANT 400XT TEST FLIGHT aerodynamics in and around the nacelles. Basically, the JT15D engine - one of the earliest high bypass turbofan engines suitable for business jets - is (by today’s standard of engine technology) much heavier and fuelthirsty than contemporary powerplant designs. Further, the JT15D-5 engine overhaul cost has increased significantly with overhauls now costing upward of $400,000 each at their 3,600-hour TBO. The Nextant 400XT flying on Williams FJ44-3AP engines in new, aerodynamicallyimproved engine nacelles and redesigned engine spars and mounts, improved and lighter horizontal stabilizer and other aspects combine to substantially increase the performance of the 400XT. Specific fuel consumption drops by about 32 percent, improving range to more than 2,000 nautical miles. Runway and climb performance also gain, as does payload thanks to an operating-empty weight reduction of about 200 pounds. Most of the weight comes out of the engines and associated hardware, but some also comes out of the cockpit with the Rockwell Collins panel replacement. The 400XT climbs direct to FL430 in only 21 minutes – down by a third from more than 30 minutes in the 400A or 400XP, and sound levels inside and outside the aircraft also improve. Importantly, direct operating costs take a solid drop by 30 percent to $1.92 cents per miles (based on two-year-old fuel costs). Regardless of the cost of Jet A, however, the relative improvement remains - compared to the original aircraft’s range and fuel use. Finally, according to Marker, the changes in engine position, mounting height and pylon shape all contribute to an airplane more friendly to hand-flying on days like the ones you find around Orlando during the NBAA convention.

customer hands by year’s end, with another 30 due to have been delivered by the end of 2013. Nextant’s fully-staffed manufacturing operation, and its six fully-contained production lines help assure deliveries meet demand. Ricci has helped align financing opportunities with his manufacturing and marketing plans and all is in place to take the program forward and assure market performance excels to a degree equal to the 400XT’s performance excellence. Production rates should start to accelerate further with the receipt of European-airworthiness authorities that are expected soon. Service should be little of an issue, between the degree of new hardware and updated maintenance performed in making the 400XT, and in light of the nearly dozen service centers already approved by Nextant Aerospace for work on the 400XT.

specifications – climbing, cruising and at the sorts of miserly fuel flows we expect out of the Williams FJ44 engine family. With a cabin quiet enough for conversation, a flight deck sporting virtually every tool but a head’s-up-display, and a fit and finish without compromise, Kenn Ricci’s brainchild appears to be on track to a strong future. With competition in the form of the Cessna CitationJet family and Citation XLS+, as well as the Hawker Beechcraft model, Nextant’s 400XT certainly appears to have significant potential in a package indiscernible from new – except at the price tag and the fuel pump. Excitingly, Nextant Aerospace is embarking on a search for a second airframe on which to work their magic similar to that received by the old Beechjet 400A. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears pinned back…

Hawker-Beechcraft Corp. won’t exist by the time the 2013 NBAA convention opens – and there’ll be no jets in any static display mounted by the incoming Beechcraft Corp. These two facts leave a world wondering what happens to the jets – from the Hawker 4000 to the Hawker 200XP. They also raise further questions about the OEM’s own answer to the Nextant 400XT program –to convert 400A/400XP airframes into Hawker 400XPRs. HBC showed an XPR at its static display and its marketing staff was busy promoting the option of having the OEM handle a conversion similar to Nextant's. Officials at NBAA stressed that the Hawker 400XPR program continues to progress through its certification and flight testing program – already achieved by Nextant. 94

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

The first customer aircraft is currently undergoing the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system upgrade at the Hawker Beechcraft Service facility in Atlanta, while the Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engine certification effort is well underway. There are three aircraft flying in the test and certification programs with combined flight time of more than 40 hours. However, as Nextant’s Ricci outlines, “We’re finished and making airplanes, with more space and more advanced avionics – with global customer support in place and growing,” Ricci said. With a head start on the program and a performer far ahead of the original aircraft, Ricci’s Nextant may be a tough act to chase – or the perfect home for the original Beechjet program in its life after Hawker.

VIEWPOINT

CAVU ? Factoring the forecast larger aircraft demand. by Gil Wolin ctober’s devastating superstorm Sandy not only shuttered the US East Coast and delayed my departure for the NBAA convention – it also highlighted one of the most significant challenges facing our industry today. For more than a decade, aviation consultant Jim Haynes has hosted The Aviation Leaders’ Dinner on the eve of NBAA. I was honored to be asked to deliver the postrepast remarks this year. But after a night of listening to Sandy’s best efforts to reduce to matchsticks the shady glen surrounding our home, I opted to stay put, and wound-up addressing the august group from the comfort of my own home – via speaker phone! And that underscores that challenge: Face-to-face contact no longer carries the impact or urgency as before, lowering the demand for business jet travel, whether aboard owned, fractional or chartered aircraft. My first NBAA was in 1973, when 300 new business jets delivered made it a very good year. Today, 700 deliveries is an offyear. Honeywell’s 2012 forecast predicts nearly 10,000 new jet deliveries worth about $250 billion between now and 2022. Projected delivery numbers are flat for the next decade, but the aggregate delivery value increases by 9% over the period. That’s because, unlike lighter jets, the demand for larger-cabin jets continues to grow, keeping unit deliveries level but increasing the total value. That seems counterintuitive, doesn’t it? Wouldn’t the largest, most expensive aircraft segment be most likely to suffer in a down economy, as travelers seek less expensive ways to travel by business jet? Two political scientists, Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson, offer some answers to this conundrum in their 2010 book, WinnerTake-All Politics. Analyzing the increasing concentration of wealth in a small percentage of the population during the past 30 years, they help explain the changing demographic of our industry’s target markets.

O

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

Their analysis goes well beyond the top “1%” to which President Obama keeps referring. Yes, that top 1%, which represents about 1.5 million US households, receives 18% of the total income paid – 23%, if you add in capital gains. No doubt that is a fair concentration of wealth. But drilling down further, Hacker and Pierson found that the top one-tenth of 1% - about 150,000 households – pull in about $7 trillion annually, which is 12.3% of the nation’s income. That’s an average income of $7.1 million per year per household. And the top one-hundredth of 1% – that’s the wealthiest 15,000 US households – average $35 million in annual income, up from $4 million in 1974. That’s nearly a nine-fold increase in 38 years. Those 15,000 households represent 6% of the nation’s annual income – they earn one out of every $17 paid. The Forbes 400’s numbers reflect the same trend. In 1985, their average net worth was a bit more than $650 million – in 2007 it had risen to $3.9 billion. This kind of growth and income concentration in the wealthiest tier – combined with their increased travel to new markets in BRIC and EMEAA countries – creates a market that both needs and can afford large aircraft acquisition and operating costs. But what about other Business Aviation segments? As before, technological advances in other industries may well dictate the pace of change in all aircraft makes and models. IBM just announced a breakthrough in computer chips that may breathe new life into Moore’s Law: The number of transistors that can be built on a single chip will double at intervals of 12 to 18 months. We’d about reached the limit on silicon chips – but IBM discovered a way to use nanotubes on carbon chips. And if Moore’s Law is alive and well, so are advances in computer engine and flight controls, and avionics. These advances will help to drive down the prices on pre-owned aircraft, as they fall further behind in new generation equipment. The cost to update the cockpit – plus the need to train to newer avionics www.AvBuyer.com

suites – will force even some latermodel business jets into early obsolescence. The good news? The US Presidential election is over. And regardless of their opinions about the outcome, business leaders soon will begin to make commitments on short- and long-term capital spending. That means that flying should begin to increase as we begin to return to business as usual. So as we head into 2013, a few words to the wise are in order: •

SMS is coming despite resistance among the “old hand” aviation managers. So get ready. It’s time to differentiate among the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The DOT must step up and regulate charter brokers – and eliminate the unreliable and unethical, along with the unsafe. Congress must properly fund both the FAA and NextGen. Speak up!

And finally, let’s all stay clear of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” marketing to the 1%. Business aircraft are incredibly effective transportation tools for all leaders – even the President. After all, he spent the last two months using his aircraft to close the deal with the American voting public. ❯ Gil Wolin draws on almost forty years of aviation marketing and management experience as a consultant to the corporate aviation industry. His aviation career incorporates aircraft management, charter and FBO management experience (with TAG Aviation among others), and he is a frequent speaker at aviation, travel and service seminars.

CHART A - NEW BUSINESS JET DELIVERIES 1964 - 2011

Aircraft Delivered

n this month’s JETNET >>Know More article we seek to tie in the recent US Presidential election with an historical view of the Business Jet market (New and Pre-owned) before and after the elections. Since the Presidential elections are every four years, we will look back to the election years of 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 (ninemonths up to September) and the year after the elections including the years 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2009. First, however, it will help to gain perspective of new business jet deliveries from 1964 to 2011; a timeframe that includes seven different U.S. Recessionary periods. Prior to the election year review in 1996, we found that there was a period of flat industry growth, which we have labeled the ‘No Change Years’ running from 1983 to 1994 (see Chart A (right)).

BILL CLINTON, PRESIDENT (1996 & 1997) During the Bill Clinton-era, we saw new business jet deliveries increase more than 38% and retail sale transactions tic upward by more than 6% (see Table A, right).

JETNET >>KNOW MORE first major upswing in the Business Jet market that was the result of a strong economy. This period included introductions of many new and derivative Business Jet aircraft models, along with the beginning of the fractional market from NetJets.

GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT (2000 & 2001; 2004 & 2005) During the George W. Bush era, business jet activity grew to new records, but started out slowly. As Chart A showed (previous page), the first run-up period ended with a peak year of deliveries in 2001 when 784 new business jets were delivered, and included an eightmonth-long U.S. recession that ran from March to November 2001. The Pre-Owned market dropped -12.4% in 2001 and started a two-year fall caused by the devastating September 11, 2001 events. Then the rebound began in 2004 and 2005 resulting in a 26% increase in new business jet transactions, followed by the rise to the all-time peak that came later in 2008. Table B (top, right) details these election years and post-election years’ statistics.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT (2008 & 2009) The turn of events for this current era are fresh in our minds as the Great Recession took hold of the U.S. economy in 2008 and the financial crises spread globally and spared few countries. It seems we are still searching for the ‘new normal’ for these times, but Business Aviation is resilient and we are optimistic about our ability to persevere. In 2009 we saw new business jet transactions fall more than 33% with pre-owned also dropping by double digits from the prior year (see Table C, right).

2012 (THROUGH SEPTEMBER) While the pre-owned market continues to show improvement, all market metrics show signs of a slow recovery, as exhibited by Table D (right). Irrespective of how slow, it is, nonetheless, an improvement compared to the lows recorded during the past three years. The good news is that at nine months into 2012, the business jet market showed a 5.5% increase in Full Sale Transactions compared to the same period for 2011. Typically, the Fourth Quarter reflects stronger results compared to the first three quarters of any given year, so there is optimism for an improvement on the 5.5% increase. Table E (right), meanwhile, displays new deliveries and pre-owned sale transactions by weight class, comparing the first nine months of 2012 to those of 2011. New deliveries are virtually the same in this comparison, and, as established, the Pre-Owned Full Retail Sale transactions have increased by 5.5%. ❯

globe. As the pre-owned market continues to improve and now that the U.S. presidential election is behind us we are hopeful that new deliveries will see increases in 2012 and that Pre-Owned sale transactions continue to improve and reach a new peak as we finish out the Fourth Quarter, 2012.

SUMMARY Questions about the recovery still linger. However, our analysis suggests that the industry is on the right track. From the buyer’s point of view, the current market is a good time to buy a pre-owned business jet so this is still a buyer’s market, with ample inventory of most Business Jets that are at near record-low average asking prices. The big unknown is what will be the shape of this recovery? The Pre-Owned markemarket has followed the classic ‘V’shaped pattern, but the New business jet portion of the market has not yet clearly shown its recovery shape. We will continue to track the industry’s progress and hold on to the slow, but sure market improvements we are making in 2012.

As we have mentioned several times in previous articles, new aircraft orders are based on the successful sale of existing aircraft in the Pre-Owned market. Someone who wants to purchase a new aircraft usually needs to sell their existing one first. New business jet sales are driven by strong economic activity, corporate profitability, wealth creation and business investment. It is important to understand that Business Jet markets tend to be bifurcated – and purchasers tend to be either New aircraft buyers or Pre-Owned aircraft buyers. New and Pre-Owned worldwide business jet delivery cycles have certainly followed different trends during this recent downturn. Historically, there has been a one-year lag in the recovery of New business jet deliveries versus Pre-Owned sale transactions. Chart B (above) shows the overall global market trends from 2001 to present for both new deliveries and pre-owned sale transactions. The New Business Jet deliveries are reported by GAMA and results for 2011 were 695 units compared to 763 in 2010 and 870 in 2009. In 2011 there were 2,109 Pre-Owned sale transactions, representing a second year of increase from the low (1,578 transactions) that was recorded in 2009. The 2011 preowned sale transactions were 4.6% below the 2007 record peak of 2,211 sale transactions. Our expectations are cautiously positive for 2013, but open with care: There is still a strong need for improvement for both business and consumer confidence across the

Both the ‘Heavy’ and ‘Light Jet’ weight categories are showing double-digit percentage increases in YTD pre-owned sale transactions for 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 (11% and 11.1% respectively). Both the ‘Medium’ and ‘VLJ’ categories had fewer sales transactions in the YTD 2012 compared to YTD 2011.

ENTRY LEVEL & LIGHT JETS REVIEW 2012 (PART 2)

Entry Level & Light Jets Review 2012 (Part 2)

by Dave Higdon oncluding this month, World Aircraft Sales Magazine examines several products in the Entry Level and Light Jet category of Business Jets. Last month, jet offerings from Bombardier, Cessna and Eclipse were reviewed. This month, the remainder of the in development and in production jets within the category feature. A group so well regarded, so popular and so fundamental to the existence of everything above it, the Entry Level and Light Jet segment remains a gateway to Business Aviation. We noted last month that today’s vast variety of business jets can be traced in part to the innovators who adapted aircraft designed for other purposes to business use. But it ultimately took the advent of purpose-built light business jets to give roots to the concept of

business airplanes built for business purposes that evolved into today’s multiplecategory fleet of business-turbine offerings. Without repeating ourselves too much, for many an operator the flexibility and utility of the Light and Entry Level jets are the ultimate value. They can use the largest number of airports of all jet categories; they can often put as many people in seats as larger aircraft; and over the typical Business Aviation mission they suffer only slightly in the time contest (for legs of 350 to 500 nautical miles the time differences between 370 knots and 460 knots amounts to just minutes). At the same time, the fuel needed to fly one of the smaller jets pales compared to what’s needed for jets of medium size and up. And in general the availability of useable runways declines in reverse proporwww.AvBuyer.com

tion to size – the bigger the plane, the fewer the runways available. Furthermore, the smallest jets can make those long-range missions people feel compelled to fly larger aircraft to fulfill; but even allowing for the added fuel use of a fuel-stop en route doesn’t add up to enough to erase the small jets’ frugal fueluse advantage. All things taken into account, the Entry Level and Light jet aircraft are capable of helping any individual or company fulfill their travel needs across a broad spectrum of the landscape. So what’s not to like? Well, there are still limitations, bound largely by cabin volume, and weight can become a limiting factor with the airplane fueled for maximum range. But in the real world of business flying, those events are exceptions for which other options (chartering the larger aircraft Aircraft Index see Page 4

required for occasional trips) are available, which means you pay for the extra lift only when you need it and not with every flight, most of which have no need for the added lift. Jets weighing up to 20,000 pounds maximum take-off weight form the Entry Level and Light Jet category – with the split between Entry Level and Light falling at the 10,000 pounds MTOW mark. We do make a couple of small exceptions for some on-the-border deviations to the 20,000 lbs upper limit, where a couple of models came about as Light Jet members but through improvements and enhancements slowly gained weight enough to edge them slightly beyond 20,000 pounds. So, moving ahead, let’s examine what’s available today in the Entry Level and Light Jet segment. This is a diverse cluster with their own interesting histories. Advertising Enquiries see Page 8

ACTIVE PROGRAMS CONTINUED… PHENOM 100 Walking Embraer’s static display at the 2012 NBAA Convention at Orlando Executive Airport left little doubt that the Brazilian OEM has earned its reputation as a powerhouse player in Business Aviation. Standing tall at one corner of the display, Embraer’s largest business jet - the Lineage 1000 dwarfed the subject of this section, the comparatively diminutive Phenom 100. Although this light jet may appear tiny compared to its hangarmate, it’s anything but a lightweight in the business jet market, where Embraer evidently delivers big in small business jets. Whether measured by its performance or its size, Embraer’s smallest jet excels in its category. The Phenom 100 resides in the center of the range, performance-wise, boasting a 390knot top cruise speed that overshadows a www.AvBuyer.com

number of other Entry Level and Light Jets, but lags the top performers in the category. Where it wins big is in cabin size and volume, exceeding Cessna’s comfortable Citation Mustang and the larger Citation CJ1+. But that cabin falls a little short of matching that of the Hawker Premier IA. The Phenom 100 offers an integrated Garmin G1000 panel package and gets its thrust from a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F powerplants, each offering 1,695pounds-thrust (and it’s happy hot and high thanks to a flat-rated thrust level to +10°C. The pure power allows the Phenom 100 to achieve cruise altitudes through FL410 where both weather and traffic tend to be less of an issue. Thanks to an ample fuel supply and excellent specific-fuel-consumption numbers the Phenom 100 can carry you as far as 1,178 nautical miles, with NBAA reserves. ❯ WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

ENTRY LEVEL & LIGHT JETS REVIEW 2012 (PART 2) However this slow-motion saga plays out, the new company is getting out of the jet business and may hold on only to the support business – and only for those models with enough examples flying to justify that decision. But the company has plans to continue using the fuselage-manufacturing technology it pioneered for Premier/Hawker 200 and Hawker Horizon/1000 production. Instead of making jets, however, the operation will focus on two, maybe three, new singleengine propjets.

CIRRUS DESIGN SF50 VISION While Cirrus Design hasn’t quite suffered flux to the degree of HBC, the past three years have still held their challenges. Earlier this year, new Chinese owner AVIC announced that Cirrus had received funding to allow the promised resumption of development of the SF50 Vision, thus progress continues on this new single-engine jet. In October, Cirrus announced the completion of the first of about 600 tools and fittings needed to manufacture the Williams FJ33-

PHENOM 300 The second Phenom in our review, now entering production in Florida, raises the range bar to more than 1,900 nautical miles – with six on board. Embraer knew where it need not reinvent the Light Jet, and both Phenom models featured in these pages share several of the line’s finest attributes. For example, the Phenom 300 and 100 share in cabin shape, width and height, at 4.11 feet tall and 5.1 feet wide at their most expansive. But the Phenom 300 gets about 50 percent more length, exceeding 17 feet in length. As with the Phenom 100, Embraer embraced the Phenom-specific Garmin G1000 panel for the 300 model, while the powerplants are also from P&WC, but from the PW500-series family; in this case the PW535-E churning out 3,360 pounds of thrust flat-rated to ISA+15°C. The power is enough to propel the Phenom 300 as high as FL450 and still offer a speedy Mach 0.78 at its

HAWKER BEECHCRAFT HAWKER 200 (NEE PREMIER II) After a couple of years of Hawker Beechcraft Corp working to realign its jet products – a time in which the Premier II became the Hawker 200 and the Beechjet 400A became the Hawker 400XP, many a customer, prospect and industry observer ponders what the market will be like if the company follows through on its announced plans for its jet products. Chairman Bill Boisture told the community at NBAA 2012 that the new entity will emerge from bankruptcy next month, rechristened as Beechcraft Corp. And with that emergence the company now plans to stop making jets – all of its jets. It may sell the products – from the super mid-size Hawker 4000 to the Hawker 200 – to another party interested in manufacturing the jets. It may sell the type certificate to an entity interested only in providing support. www.AvBuyer.com

Already flight tests have firmed up some important numbers: For example, the SF50’s excellent runway numbers - it needs less than 2,500 feet for departure or landing. Sized with the owners of Cirrus’ SR20, SR22 and other high-performing piston single airplanes in mind, the Vision offers speeds and capabilities that compare favorably with some turboprops. But the simplicity of operation, size and handling should help make the SF50 Vision a winner among many operators attracted to its outstanding economics and performance ‘bang-for-thebuck’. At its 300 knot cruise the SF50 can carry fuel for a 1,000-mile leg and an additional 400 pounds payload in the cabin, and make the trip at altitudes no turbocharged piston airplane will ever see: FL280.

DIAMOND AIRCRAFT D-JET The D-Jet stands as another jet single with an uneven past, but a bright future once certificated and in-delivery in about two more years. Prototype Number 3 of this model made an appearance at EAA AirVenture 2012 in Oshkosh and the crowds seem to hint at the resiliency of interest in this long-running program. With flight tests well above the 700-hour mark, the company spent considerable flight time focusing on verifying compliance with the FAR 23 flight requirements – in particular handling, stability and control across the DJet’s weight and balance envelope.

THE HONDAJET, AND (INSET) ITS CABIN

With a single Williams FJ33-5A powerplant, Diamond’s five-place D-Jet can cruise at up to FL250, offers a useful load of 2,240 pounds with cruise speed topping out at 315 knots. The D-Jet offers long-range 240-knot cruise, and allows a maximum leg of 1,350 nautical miles. The one hour flight of the Number 3 prototype was its first flight since March 27. More detail development remains, and with the entry into flight tests of the fourth prototype the company expects to need about 12 more months to finalize its Part 23 Type Certification, which would place initial deliveries in the third quarter of 2014, approximately.

Already confirmed: The HondaJet’s 420knot capabilities; its ability to climb and cruise at FL430 on the 2,095-pounds-thrust powerplant; the majority of its certification tests done or well along; and engine certification quickly approaching. The composite fuselage makes the most of the structural freedom provided by the removal of engine hardware giving the HondaJet a cabin 12.1 feet long, 5 feet wide and 4.10 feet tall, which is akin to that of aircraft larger on the outside, and will surely prove welcome on its NBAA-reserve maximum legs of 1,180 nautical miles, carrying four. The HondaJet’s 420-knot capabilities will help keep any leg short, however.

AIREPORT

Aircraft Acquisition: Plan to Support your Mission. by David Wyndham andwiched around the recent NBAA convention, our company did some leadership and communication skills training. We worked on better understanding our individual personalities and how we work with the rest of our team. Part of the training took a look at the company’s mission:

S

• •

• • • •

Do we have a clear, concise, concrete and actionable mission statement? Does what I am doing advance or impede my company’s mission? If your company operates or uses aircraft, does the aircraft advance your company's mission?

WHY DOES YOUR COMPANY USE AIRCRAFT? Tying in your aircraft to the specific mission of your company allows you to focus in on which aircraft can best help to support your mission. In order to do this, you need to know what the needs are that the aircraft must meet, and you must have a plan to accomplish this. If acquiring an aircraft, then this becomes an Aircraft Acquisition Plan. To build up justification for changing, or even acquiring an aircraft you must have a plan. An aircraft acquisition plan must at a minimum: • •

Identify and quantify the transportation needs. Differentiate between "required" (must have) criteria and "desired" (nice-to-have) criteria. Identify the aircraft best capable of meeting the transportation needs.

Analyze and compare the aircraft against the transportation needs. Look at different means of "acquisition" to include charter, fractional and/or fullownership options as necessary. Contain an analysis of all the costs involved with acquiring an aircraft (acquisition, operating, and residual values). Consider taxes as part of the structure for acquiring the aircraft?

I am working with a Fortune 500 company right now. One of its aircraft requirements is for an inter-company shuttle aircraft. What it is using is too small as it almost always fills the seats and needs to leave folks behind. Without identifying the company, part of its mission statement is that it be "...a leading provider of products and services that help employers manage their business..." The company employees need to travel between operating locations to support and improve the products and services offered to their clients. The aircraft enables this by providing safe, efficient transportation that maximizes the employees' time. Their need for the aircraft ties directly to the mission of the company. Thus, the requirements for the aircraft they need can be clearly defined and justified.

HOW LONG SHOULD THE PLAN BE? Once an aircraft is in operation, it usually is there for at least five years and often for much longer. Therefore your Aircraft Acquisition Plan should include at least a minimum of five years, or as long as you expect to operate that model. Further, the plan should be void of emotional issues and stay as far from subjective

criteria as possible. Having firm numbers doesn't remove all questions, but it does offer a justification based on reasoned thought. If someone wants to adjust the numbers, it is far easier to reflect that change in an updated plan and to see the effect on the results.

DO YOU HAVE A PLAN? If you have a plan, does it directly support the mission of the company? When was the plan updated last? Does it address all of the elements above? Can someone else follow the plan through, and arrive at the same conclusion? If you don't have an aircraft acquisition (or replacement or upgrade) plan, start drafting one right now. Remember the old adage "those who fail to plan, plan to fail." ❯ David Wyndham is an owner of Conklin & de Decker.

Design At Its Finest by Peter Campbell

“Good design has to tell a story. It has to stop people, and it has to make them wonder. Good design is a conversation.” - Zahid Sardar

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

uring my many years as a consultant, I have had the privilege of introducing four of the most talented artists to aircraft interior design and had the pleasure of working with them on their first of many projects – Andrew Winch (andrew-winch-designs.co.uk); Peder Eidsgaard (pegasusdesign.mc); Jean-Pierre Fantini (jpfantini.fr); and Joyce Wirth (weissandwirth.com). I learnt that design is not about colours and materials but very much an individual art-form, dependent on the immense talents of the artists themselves. As with music, the ability to flow with taste, situation and mood is a prerequisite, and so with composers each designer has his or her individual signature.

“I love this teapot!” said one recent client seeking interior inspiration (forgivable, she is truly English). “And please don’t forget the importance of Yin and Yang”. A simple brief for Joyce Wirth, and to the point. From previous work in various properties for this client, she already understood their personality, likes and dislikes – all of which are important to a good designer. So the teapot was studied in detail from all angles, and G-URRU was created - black and white; the exterior complementing the interior with its striking dark wood galley melting into a peaceful cabin. Even the registration incorporates a Yin Yang balance. A closer look finds a continuity in the finer details – all of the tableware, menu cards, note pads and linen.

GAMA THIRD QUARTER 2012 SHIPMENT ANALYSIS

GAMA Third Quarter 2012 Shipment Analysis by Mike Potts ell this is encouraging news! The General Aviation Manufacturers Association issued its report on third quarter business aircraft shipments on November 7, and for the first time in more than five years, all of the indicators are positive.

W

• • • • •

Total shipments for the year are up 4.2 percent at 1,393 units, from 1,337. Total billings are up 1.4 percent at $12.3 billion, from $12.1 billion last year. Piston-powered aircraft deliveries are up 3.5 percent at 597 units. Turboprops are up 10.5 percent at 368 units. Business jets are up 0.2 percent – a narrow margin but still positive at 428 deliveries through the first nine months of this year.

The last time GAMA issued a report with all of the indicators on the plus side was back in February of 2007. The Year-End 2006 report issued then showed every segment improved from the year before – climaxing a period of record growth that had begun early in the decade and would continue for the turbinepowered products well into 2008, but not for the piston airplanes, which fell off sharply thereafter. This encouraging third quarter performance marks the fourth GAMA report in the last five quarters that has shown positive results – giving credence to the theory we suggested last quarter that the bottom of the recession in our industry actually occurred in the summer of 2011 and we have been experiencing a slow upturn ever since.

112

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

Further evidence that a slow – albeit painfully slow – recovery might be underway came at the National Business Aviation Association’s annual convention in Orlando, Fla. this year where at least two highly respected organizations, Honeywell and JETNET, issued forecasts postulating that the worst of the recession is now behind us (see related story, on Pg. 68 of this issue). The general view of the forecasts is that the next two to three years will see slow growth, followed by more robust recovery in the middle of the decade. It was, however, a little disappointing to delve closely into the details of this GAMA report and find limited evidence to support my very positive first impression: A little like finding the most attractive present under the Christmas tree contains a new pair of socks. It’s not that the news is bad – it’s just not as good as I had hoped for. The biggest disappointment was the discovery that the 10.5 percent gain in the turboprop segment – the strongest apparent evidence of pending recovery – is largely illusory. The entire increase in turboprops – literally all of it – came in the agricultural aircraft that were added to the GAMA report last year. This means nothing to the market for business aircraft, which turns out to actually be down by one unit from last year (222 now versus 223 last year). So instead of a big gain, business turboprops are essentially flat. Just like the jet market. Both the jet and turboprop markets are exhibiting mixed signs. Both have areas of strength and areas of apparent weakness. A pleasant surprise was finding greater strength in the piston market. While piston twins are lagging, piston singles are actually www.AvBuyer.com

about 13 percent ahead of last year. That’s encouraging when you consider that an improving piston single market has led every significant business aircraft recovery since WWII. All three markets – jet, turboprop and piston – are hotly contested and at the end of the third quarter it is still too early to predict with confidence which manufacturer will be in the lead when the books close on 2012 Business Aviation deliveries. It is possible that all three markets could finish with different leaders than in 2011.

THE BUSINESS JETS Turning to the specifics of business jet deliveries, we see a somewhat confused market. Four of the eight business jet manufacturers reporting to GAMA have better year-to-date sales than they had a year ago. One was equal and three aren’t doing as well. Collectively, the market is one unit ahead of last year, at 428 units, compared with 427 at this time in 2011. On a quarterly basis, the news is far less positive. Only one company matched last year’s quarterly results and seven had lower sales than a year ago, some by a wide margin on a percentage basis. Collectively the market is 32 units behind last year’s third quarter performance at 134 units, compared with 166 last year. That’s a reduction of 19.28 percent. Moreover, the market is weak enough to have ❯ Aircraft Index see Page 4

GAMA THIRD QUARTER 2012 SHIPMENT ANALYSIS prompted one of its long-time participants – Hawker Beechcraft - to announce that it will exit the business jet market to concentrate on turboprop and piston products. So there is conflicting evidence as to whether the jet market is getting better or getting worse. If we are in a recovery, it is certainly not a very robust one. Cessna continues to lead the market for the year-to-date with 127 units, compared with second-placed Bombardier which had 119. For the first time this year, however, Cessna did not lead deliveries for the quarter. Bombardier delivered 44 jets between July and the end of September compared with 41 for Cessna. Both companies’ year-to-date totals are ahead of last year, when Cessna totalled 116 and Bombardier 115 - but neither matched last year’s third quarter results, when Cessna had 47 and Bombardier 46. With Bombardier’s total for the year standing just eight units behind Cessna, it remains to be seen which one will finish as the year’s leading jet manufacturer. With a strong fourth quarter surge, it is not inconceivable that the winner could be Bombardier. If that were to occur, it would be the first time in more than 30 years that Cessna has not delivered more business jets than any other manufacturer. Last year the two companies had an equal number of deliveries in the fourth quarter – 67 units – which allowed Cessna to finish the year one unit in the lead. As the market continues to trend toward larger and more capable business jets, it will be interesting to see how long Cessna can retain its leadership position. In third place for both the quarter and the year in business jets is Gulfstream, with 17 and 57 units respectively. Gulfstream’s totals are down from last year in both timeframes, when it recorded 25 and 72 respectively. Embraer is next, with 13 for the quarter and 46 for the year – that’s also down in both categories from 18 and 49 last year. Dassault, with 43 deliveries for the year is 22 percent ahead of its 2011 total, but lagged in terms of its third-quarter results at 13 units compared with 18 a year ago. Bringing up the rear in the traditional business jet category is Hawker Beechcraft, with 23 units year-to-date (a total that is 23.3 percent behind the 30 it reported last year at this time). On a quarterly basis Hawker was also down, with seven units compared to nine last year. Hawker Beechcraft’s announcement that it will exit the jet market was the surprise news at the 2012 NBAA Convention. The company has been a jet manufacturer since 1986 when it acquired the former Diamond Jet line from Mitsubishi. The OEM says it will try to sell its jet lines to other manufacturers, so it remains to be seen if these products will continue to

114

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

play a role in the jet market. The airliner-based business jet market continues to perform in a manner seemingly disassociated with the rest of the business jet segment. Boeing leads with seven deliveries for the year, fully 75 percent ahead of last year when it recorded four units. In spite of this wide margin over its 2011 performance, Boeing lags on a quarterly basis, with one unit in the past three-month period compared with three a year ago. Airbus is experiencing a stable year, with delivery totals exactly on a par with last year’s performance at six units for the year and two for the quarter.

THE TURBOPROPS Turning to the turboprop market, we see the previously identified confusion related to how GAMA’s data is presented today. Based on GAMA’s raw numbers, the turboprop market has the appearance of being 10.5 percent ahead of last year, with 368 deliveries compared with 333 last year. And while these numbers are obviously accurate, they are very misleading when analyzing the Business Aviation turboprop market. During 2012 GAMA added Air Tractor and Thrush to its reporting OEMs, both of whom build agricultural aircraft. As it happens, all of the 10.5 percent gain in turboprop deliveries in this quarter’s GAMA report is the result of sales gains at Air Tractor (117 units, up from 89 last year) and Thrush (29 units, up from 21). Looking at just the traditional turboprop manufacturers delivering business aircraft, we see a flat market with 222 deliveries in the first nine months of the year compared with 223 a year ago. On a quarterly basis the news is more encouraging, however. Deliveries are up about 6.5 percent, with 85 deliveries compared with 80 a year ago. Of the eight traditional turboprop makers, four are up for the year-to-date, two are even, and two are down. For just the third quarter, three are up, one is www.AvBuyer.com

even and four are down. Cessna continues to lead in business turboprop deliveries, with 65 units for the year-todate and 25 for the quarter. Both numbers represent an increase from last year when Cessna had 61 for the nine-month period and 23 for the quarter. Hawker Beechcraft, which had been the perennial leader in this segment, is now solidly in second place at 55 units for the year to date, which is exactly what it recorded at this time last year. With 23 units for the quarter, Hawker Beechcraft is fully 53 percent ahead of the 15 it reported to GAMA last year for the same period. While it appears to have some momentum with a strong third quarter performance, it would take a very substantial surge in the fourth quarter (probably with unit deliveries in the 40-plus range) for Hawker Beechcraft to overcome Cessna’s lead and return to its traditional pole position in the business turboprop market. Third place in the turboprop segment goes to Pilatus, with 36 units for the year-to-date, down slightly from 39 last year. For the quarter, Pilatus is ahead of its 2011 performance by 21.4 percentage points at 17 units, up from 14 last year. Fourth place in turboprops is tied between Piper and Socata, each with 23 units for the year. That represents a gain of one unit for Socata this year while Piper’s total is equal with 2011’s. For the quarter both companies were down, Piper from nine units to eight, and Socata from 10 units to seven. The next position is also a tie, this time between Pacific Aerospace Ltd. and Quest. Both companies delivered nine aircraft in the first nine months, which for each OEM represented a single unit gain over the eight they reported last year. Quest had three for the quarter (same as last year) while Pacific Aerospace had one, down from two in 2011. Piaggio had the smallest delivery total among the traditional turboprop makers at two year-to-date, and one for the quarter. Both ❯ Aircraft Index see Page 4

GAMA THIRD QUARTER 2012 SHIPMENT ANALYSIS numbers were down sharply from the seven and four the company recorded last year. Finally, a new turboprop manufacturer debuted in the GAMA report this quarter, but its contribution is not part of the total – at least not yet. The new company is Germanybased Extra Aircraft; the well-known builder of aerobatic aircraft which is also building a product suitable for Business Aviation. Extra joined the list of companies reporting to GAMA this quarter and listed the delivery of one EA500 single engine turboprop cabin class aircraft. Extra also reported the delivery of 10 piston-powered sport aircraft, although none of these aircraft are incorporated in the report totals.

THE PISTONS With the turboprop totals adjusted to include just the business aircraft, the piston products actually emerge as the segment with the most growth for the year-to-date, although the number is disappointingly small at just 3.5 percent. For those of us who believe that recoveries begin in the piston categories, however, any movement here is good news. The total market for piston products reached 597 units for the first nine months of 2012, including 544 singles and 53 twins. That compares with 481 singles and 96 twins a year ago, or a total of 577. The increase in piston singles then, is actually a little over 13 percent – a number that begins to sound more like a recovery. While the piston twins are down by 43 units, or about 47.8 percent, this segment – like the airliner-based business jets – seems to march to its own drummer, and is far less likely to be regarded as a bellwether than the piston singles.

PISTON SINGLES Of 10 piston manufacturers reporting deliveries to GAMA either this year or last, seven are ahead of last year on a year-to-date basis, and three are behind. Quarterly results show four OEMs ahead of last year, while three are behind, two are level and one is not reporting. There is a serious battle for domination of the piston-single market. As of last quarter Cessna held a nine-unit lead over Cirrus (114 to 105 units), but during the current quarter the lead changed hands. At the end of nine months Cirrus had pulled ahead with 169 units compared with Cessna’s 165. This came on the strength of a 64-unit quarter for Cirrus (up from 48 in the same period last year). Cessna made 51 single-engine deliveries in the quarter, down from 54 in 2011. For the year-to-date, Cessna is up 20 units from the 145 it made a year ago, however. In third place for piston singles is Diamond, which finished the nine-month period with 96 units, up strongly from the 72 it had last year. While Diamond’s nine-month

116

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

total trails the two market leaders, its total for the quarter was remarkably close. At 45 units, Diamond’s number was just six below what Cessna reported. For Diamond, that was a 66 percent improvement over the 27 units it delivered in the third quarter of 2011. Piper was next, also with a significant gain for the quarter and year-to-date. Piper’s deliveries totaled 67 for the year (up almost 49 percent from the 45 it recorded last year), and 23 for the quarter (up almost 77 percent from 13 a year ago).

PISTON TWINS In the Piston Twin segment there is definitely still a recession going on. For the quarter, piston twin deliveries are at just 17 units, down from 33. For the second quarter in a row, Piper supplanted long-time market leader Diamond, leading with 26 twins for the year and nine for the quarter (compared with 25 Piper twins a year ago and 12 in 3Q 2011). Diamond finished second with 19 units yearto-date, and six for the quarter - down sharply from 57 and 17 a year ago. Hawker Beechcraft was third in the category, with eight for the year, and two for the quarter (down from 14 and four a year ago).

CONCLUDING REMARKS So what should we expect from the balance of this year – which may or may not prove to be the fountain of recovery in our industry. It’s all going to depend on what kind of surge we see in the fourth quarter. Historically, 30 to 33 percent of business aircraft sales come in the fourth quarter. Last year, however, the fourth quarter surge exceeded all previous expectations, with the jet market accruing 38.75 percent of all sales in the final three months. www.AvBuyer.com

Turboprop year-end sales were slightly less robust, with a 35.55 percent surge. Single engine pistons were about in the same range, at 35.78 percent. Only multi-engine piston products experienced a surge that would have been considered “normal” at 29.92 percent. The likelihood that we’ll see another record surge is pretty good, I think. We know that corporate America is sitting on a lot of cash. We also know there is some pent-up demand, and that there was a tendency in the U.S. market to see what the election would bring. Assuming another strong surge develops, how is the market likely to finish the year? In jets and turboprops, quite like last year, I expect. The jet market should finish at around 700 units. Turboprops will be in the 350 to 375-unit range and piston singles should finish at about 850 units. Piston twins will add another 75 or so, so the overall market should be about 2,000 airplanes. Total billings will likely be in the $19.5 to $20 billion range. One factor that could impact the jet market performance would be Hawker Beechcraft’s possible inability to deliver enough airplanes to support a surging market, although I believe this is likely to be offset by available inventory from Embraer, Bombardier, and perhaps others. If the jet market comes in at 650 units or below, it would raise serious questions about the quality of the recovery, whereas any jet total above 720 units should be a cause for huge celebration. In attempting to assess the overall health of the Business Aviation market, the coming three months should reveal a great deal.

NOTES: 1. A shipment occurs when a general aviation airplane is shipped from its production facility to a customer located anywhere in the world. 2. Shipments may include deliveries to a fractional operator owned by the company or to an aircraft dealer. 3. An airplane is considered to be manufactured in the United States when produced under an FAA production certificate. 4.Military airplane shipments are not included in shipment table totals. 5. Company billings are not reported. Where available, GAMA estimates total billings using public information including B&CA Purchase Planning Handbook 2012. 6. Cessna Aircraft Company C162 SkyCatcher (SLSA) and Diamond Aircraft HK36 Motor Glider models are included in civil make-model shipment total, but not summary tables. This change is intended to properly capture all deliveries by the companies listed while maintaining a consistent baseline of shipments from previous years' reports. 7. Air Tractor and Thrush Aircraft are new to the report starting first quarter 2012. 8. Gulfstream deliveries will be recognized at the time of completion ("outfitted") starting 2012 to better align with shipment recognition with other OEMs. The 2011 report has been updated and prior years data will be amended. 9. Airbus and Boeing twin aisle shipments will be identified in the report as opposed to in the footnotes going forward. GAMA, however, is not including the value of twin aisle airplane shipments in the calculation of billings. 10. Extra Aircraft was added to the report in third quarter 2012. Historical data is not available and the company is not used in year-over-year summary table. has been updated and prior years data will be amended. ■

NBAA ROUND-UP

Orlando Overview NBAA wraps-ups highly succesful 2012 Convention.

s the NBAA 65th Annual Meeting & Convention (NBAA2012) came to a close, the event had welcomed 25,150 registered attendees, 1,073 total exhibitors with 105 aircraft in the static displays at the Orange County Convention Center and at Orlando Executive Airport. “Attendees and Exhibitors at this year's show have told us that it was a very strong event, despite its timing alongside Hurricane Sandy’s landfall on the East Coast, and a temporary flight restriction for the Orlando area late on Sunday evening and Monday morning before the show,” Association President and CEO Ed Bolen reflected.

A

Aerion’s Supersonic Business Jet (SBJ) concept launched in 2002 “is alive and well” states COO Doug Nichols. “Phase two supersonic laminar-flow flight tests will use a 203x101cm test article mounted beneath a Boeing F-15B, and were due to get underway last month from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center. The article will be flown at speeds of up to Mach 2.0 to measure the real-world robustness of supersonic natural laminar flow. The tests are also intended to help define future SBJ manufacturing standards for surface quality and assembly tolerances.  www.aerioncorp.com

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

“We’re delighted that, especially given those challenges, Convention participants reported strong traffic on the exhibit floor and at the aircraft static displays, along with a high level of enthusiasm among Attendees.” It is worthy of note, that the NBAA convention has risen back to fifth place in the ranking of largest US trade shows based on square footage of exhibits. This is due to the success of NBAA 2011 in Las Vegas last year, according to Trade Show Executive. Following are brief highlights from selected Convention Exhibitors…  More from www.nbaa.org

Airbus has begun offering customers the ACJ318 Enhanced. This new version of the smallest member of the ACJ family embodies new features and introduces a catalogue of optional extras. The Airbus ACJ318 Enhanced introduces a more elegant cabin decor, new seats and high-definition in-flight entertainment, as well as formalizing options such as fuel-saving Sharklets, a shower, a cinema lounge and many more features as standard. The OEM is also looking at a long-range version of the ACJ320. The airframer has not launched a re-engined ACJ320neo, but intends to deliver the first such type by at least 2019. It will look to expand the ACJ's www.AvBuyer.com

range beyond 6,000nm, but it has no intention of beating the potential range of a BBJ MAX-7. "I think you want to achieve something higher than 6,000nm, but I don't think you need 7,000nm," said Francois Chazelle, ACJ Vice President.  www.airbuscorporatejets.com Boeing intends to offer the BBJ MAX-8 and the BBJ MAX 9. The BBJ MAX-8, based on the 737 MAX-8, will be the first member of the BBJ MAX family to take advantage of the efficiency of CFM International’s new LEAP-1B engines and the Boeing developed Advanced Technology Winglet, and will provide 13 percent fuel-use improvement, translating to a Aircraft Index see Page 4

range of 6,325 nautical miles - 14-percent more than todays BBJ 2 (subject to validation). Meanwhile, the BBJ MAX-8 will share the same cabin size with today’s BBJ2. Boeing also plans for a BBJ MAX-9, based on the 737 MAX-9, and a BBJ MAX-7. Regarding the MAX-9, similar performance improvements are anticipated, including a 6,255 nm range with an even larger cabin than the BBJ MAX-8. Plans for a BBJ MAX-7 are being studied.  www.boeing.com Bombardier’s Challenger program has reached a significant milestone with the entry-into-service of the 200th Challenger 605 business jet. Meanwhile, the Learjet 75 and Global 6000 ultra long-range jet made their NBAA debuts this year.  www.bombardier.com Cessna made several key announcements at the Convention. The New Citation Sovereign was introduced with enhanced capabilities; new cockpit with Garmin G5000 avionics suite; increased range (by 150 nm) boosting total range to over 3,000 nm; new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306D engines; new cabin amenities (including the integrated Clarity CMS, in addition to improved seat design), Advertising Enquiries see Page 8

among other enhancements. The new Sovereign will also be available with a utility configuration. Entry into service is expected in the third quarter of 2013. The Citation X name will live on after Cessna announced its Citation TEN would now retain its predecessor’s name due to popular demand. It also emerged that Cessna is planning a new light jet family, and brought a mock-up of a concept airplane to the Convention. Brad Thress, senior vice president business jets was unable to discuss performance, range, price and dates however.”While our light jets, the CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ4 are very popular we need more spread between each of the models.”  www.cessna.com

Daher-Socata exhibited its latest version of the TBM 850 at NBAA for the first time. The Elite variant of the very fast turboprop gives operators the chance to reconfigure the cabin from six to four seats in thirty minutes, to provide more luggage space.  www.tbm850.com

Dassault Falcon launched the Falcon 2000LXS offering improved airport performance, www.AvBuyer.com

payload and cabin comfort compared to the Falcon 2000LX which it will replace in 2014. The 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LXS will also allow operators to access more airports. With full fuel, the Falcon 2000LXS will have a payload of 2,190 pounds; a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 42,800 lbs with a balanced field length of 4,675 feet, which is over 1,000 feet better than some aircraft in its category. The Falcon 2000LXS will be certified in the first half of 2013 with deliveries beginning in 2014.  www.dassaultfalcon.com

Eclipse Aerospace announced that a production order has been placed for an initial fifty ship sets of a three hundred ship set contract for the IS&S advanced avionics suite for the production model Eclipse 550. IS&S is the supplier of Primary Flight and MultiFunction Displays as well as the Integrated Flight Management System for the Eclipse Jet. The first 550 is in production and is planned to be completed mid-2013, followed by first delivery in the third quarter. Eclipse also announced a supplier contract with Lexavia Systems for the Enhanced Vision System in the Eclipse 550 Jet.  www.eclipse.aero WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

Embraer is about to finalize validation tests on the first fly-by-wire system on its new mid-size Legacy 500. The second and third Legacy 500 prototypes continue ground testing. The complete Legacy 450 cabin and cockpit mock-up was on display for the first time at NBAA. According to the company, the mid-light Legacy 450 “sets a new paradigm in its respective executive jet category”. The Legacy 450 will have the largest and quietest cabin in its class.  www.embraerexecutivejets.com Gulfstream’s G650 aircraft now offers even better performance than originally announced. The improvements affect the aircraft’s range at high speed and takeoff distance, giving operators increased flexibility for ultra-long-range missions. Range at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 is now 6,000 nautical miles (a 1,000nm increase). The G650’s takeoff balanced field length decreased to 5,858 feet from the original 6,000 feet at the aircraft’s maximum takeoff weight of 99,600 pounds. This improvement allows the G650 to fly farther from demanding, short runways. The G650 has a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.925. Deliveries of the aircraft are scheduled to begin before year-end.  www.gulfstream.com

Hawker Beechcraft generated most interest at NBAA. At a standing-room only press briefing, company spokesmen talked about the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings; what happened with failed talks with Superior Aviation Beijing; the company’s jet business; and life going forward as a re-energized Beechcraft Corporation after it emerges from bankruptcy.

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

Hawker Beechcraft chairman, Bill Boisture outlined six bids were received from interested parties from around the world for the company. With the decision now to emerge as a standalone company featuring its Beechjet, Baron, King Air and trainer products, the company will sell-off or close its jet business. It is now revisiting interest from original parties, plus talking to others. The spectrum of options it’s exploring is vast and include selling the jet business in its entirety with a new owner continuing to build the jets, as well as selling the type certificates and talking to a group of Hawker jet owners who might want to own the company. Going forward, warranties on the engines, avionics, airframes and systems of Hawker 900XPs, 750s and 400XPs will be honored and details are being developed. Hawker 4000 and Premier 1A warranties for engines and avionics will be honored by suppliers. However, the company is in discussion with several companies working on an agreement to make sure owners will receive service, warranty support, maintenance, field service and parts and distribution services. “These decisions are not insignificant,” Boisture said. “This was the best way to move forward to transform our company”. On a happier note, the company announced it has delivered the 7,000th Beechcraft King Air since the legendary line of twin-engine turboprops began production in 1964. The milestone aircraft was a Beechcraft King Air 350i, delivered to Herman & Kittle Properties, Inc. Additionally, the Hawker 400XPR program continues to progress through the certification and flight testing stages. The first customer aircraft is currently undergoing the www.AvBuyer.com

Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system upgrade at the Hawker Beechcraft Service facility in Atlanta, while the Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engine certification effort is well underway. There are three aircraft flying in the test and certification programs with combined flight time of more than 40 hours.  www.hawkerbeechcraft.com Honda Aircraft Company has commenced production on the much anticipated HondaJet. An assembly line is in place, major aircraft components (including the fuselage and wing) have been produced, and assembly is underway for the first customer aircraft. To facilitate pilot training, Honda has partnered with FlightSafety International and a simulator will be installed in the simulator bay at the Honda Aircraft world headquarters campus in Greensboro, North Carolina.  www.hondajet.com

Honeywell will provide the Latitude and Longitude aircraft with high-frequency radios, LASEREF VI inertial reference navigation systems, digital cabin pressure control and monitoring system, and the environmental control systems.  www.honeywell.com Hongkong Jet added a fourth Airbus ACJ to its growing managed aircraft fleet, making it the largest operator of ACJs in the region. The company’s remarkable expansion, which has seen 12 aircraft added into its operations within the last 12 months, has strengthened Hongkong Jet as a key player in the Far East business jet market.  www.hongkongjet.com.hk

Rolls-Royce celebrated the 50th anniversary of 'Power-by-the-Hour' last month, its pioneering approach to engine maintenance management that forms the basis of its market-leading CorporateCare service. ‘Power-by-the-Hour' was invented in 1962 to support the Viper engine on the de Havilland/Hawker Siddeley 125 business jet. A complete engine and accessory replacement service was offered on a fixed-costper-flying-hour basis, aligning the interests of the manufacturer and operator, who only paid for engines that performed well. Rolls-Royce CorporateCare, launched in 2002, added a range of additional features, including Engine Health Monitoring, which tracks on-wing performance using onboard sensors; lease engine access to replace an operator's engine during off-wing maintenance, thereby minimizing downtime; and a global network of authorized maintenance centers to ensure that world-class support is readily available to customers whenever required. The service also allows operators to remove risk related to unscheduled maintenance events, and make maintenance costs planned and predictable. Steve Friedrich, Rolls-Royce VP, Sales and Marketing, Civil Small & Medium Engines, outlined, “We are proud to celebrate 50 years of service excellence for Rolls-Royce. The customer focus and pioneering approach of ‘Power-by-the-Hour' remains at

POPULARITY SPREADS

The Ultimate Flying Machine ? Boeing’s BBJ. by Andrew C. Bradley hrough the years one of the standards of luxury and performance in the luxury car segment has been the special cars from Bayerische Motor Werke AG (better known as BMW). In my opinion, their branded statement ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine’ would be well adapted to Boeing’s ultra-long-range VIP aircraft, the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ). Boeing’s line of BBJs sit atop the General Business Aviation pyramid as the height of aviation corporate travel and is ideally suited for high net-worth individuals, VIPs, government officials, and corporate business people - many of whom will attend this year’s annual Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) air show at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport (December 11-13). Boeing’s BBJ product line has always had a strong relationship with the Middle East, and long before it was introduced in the late 1990s, Boeing outfitted many older 747s, 757s, 767s and, of course, 737 commercial airliners with customized interiors, tailored to the needs of Middle Eastern operators and owners. Today’s most common variant of the BBJ line is based on Boeing’s popular 737 commercial airliner variant. Known simply as the BBJ,

T

134

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

BBJ2 or BBJ3 (dependent upon which 737 variant - 700/800/900ER - it is based upon), BBJs can typically seat between 18 to 50 (or more) passengers in the most comfortable, luxurious accommodations available in today’s market place. Most of the BBJs in service include a master bedroom, complete with washroom and showers, a separate conference/dinning section, and additional living quarters. Other BBJs have been configured as high density aircraft with partial shuttle configurations seating 1520 additional passengers – although to call it “shuttle” seating is a misnomer as these seats rival or exceed the First Class seats found on the large Commercial Airliner in service on long-haul routes. Pricing for one of the BBJ line ranges widely, from US$57million for a green (unequipped) BBJ to US$74million for a green BBJ3.

A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP MEBA is a fitting venue for the BBJ product line: Nearly 25% of all in-service BBJs are owned and operated out of the Middle East. Only North America (31% share) houses more. This year MEBA will host over 7,000 visitors and VIP guests who will view over 60 VIP airwww.AvBuyer.com

craft on static display. It should be noted that MEBA is known for attracting a much higher percentage of qualified buyers at this venue, making it a very high-value venue for OEMs and private aircraft buyers. There will be plenty of interest at MEBA in Boeing’s introduction of the BBJ MAX, the new and improved VIP version of Boeing’s 737 MAX commercial jet. This will include new CFM International Leap 1-B engines and redesigned winglets improving range by 14% while cutting fuel burn by nearly 15%. The first of these MAX variants will be delivered in 2017-2018 with the introduction of the BBJ MAX 8 (a reworked version of the BBJ2 airframe), capable of an extended range of nearly 6,300 nautical miles which according to Boeing will be sufficient to link Los Angeles to Moscow and London to Hong Kong. Thereafter the BBJ MAX 9 (based on the current BBJ3 airframe) will go into service and provide similar range. Ironically, Boeing’s current most popular variant, the BBJ, based on the 737-700 airframe is still under study for conversion to the MAX specification, but industry sources suggest the main focus on that variant will be to increase the range to compete with the ultra-long-range offerings of ❯ Aircraft Index see Page 4

POPULARITY SPREADS Bombardier’s Global 8000 and Gulfstream’s G650, both of which will be able to exceed 7,000 nautical miles when they enter service. Boeing’s main competition in the ultralong-range VIP airliner segment comes from Airbus Industries. Airbus offers competing VIP products in the form of its popular ACJ318, ACJ319 and ACJ320/ACJ321 aircraft (also based on Commercial Airliner variants). Additionally Brazilian OEM Embraer has entered the market with its smaller Lineage 1000, based on its commercial ERJ190 model. Until very recently the BBJ garnered the majority of sales in this VIP segment, but Airbus has been very active in the marketplace in the past few years and is gradually making inroads. The introduction of the MAX variants with their increased range should help Boeing keep its market-leading position within the BusinessLiner segment for the time being.

A UNIQUE CLASS OF AIRCRAFT OWNERS Unlike the traditional business aircraft offerings, each interior of a BBJ is unique to its owner. BBJs are delivered from Boeing ‘green’ (sans interior). Upon exterior completion, these green aircraft are flown to PATS DeCrane in Delaware in the U.S. for fitment of auxiliary tanks (up to six additional tanks can be installed for increased range). Thereafter the customer flies the green aircraft to a Boeing-approved completion center of their choice for installation of a unique interior. Unlike offerings from Gulfstream, Bombardier and Dassault (for example), BBJ customers can exclusively select a unique interior to their own tastes. Customers of smaller, traditional business jets are usually limited to a few basic floor plans with additional aesthetic options, but each BBJ is a true reflection of the owner’s personal taste and mission requirement. As is to be expected such exclusivity and customization comes at a price, typically ranging from US$27 million to US$33 million on average, with some custom floor plans easily exceeding those numbers. It generally takes a year for interior completion, but some very elaborate interiors can take longer. Boeing is on target for 2012 to deliver two BBJs and two BBJ2s in addition to eight of its larger BBJ 747-8 aircraft (again, based on the commercial version). Production of the entire line of BBJs—narrow and wide body—are ramping back up to pre-2008/2009 crisis levels.

TODAY’S BBJ MARKET PLACE Overall the BBJ market (737 variants only) can be split into two distinct halves consisting of older pre-owned aircraft (pre-2005 models) and nearly-new and “green” delivery positions (post-2005 models). The two segments of

136

WORLD AIRCRAFT SALES MAGAZINE – December 2012

the market have vastly different price points with newly completed BBJs consisting of acquisition prices in the US$80 milion range (for a BBJ) to US$100 million for a BBJ2 and BBJ3. Currently, Boeing has no “green” delivery positions available until Q3 of next year. Meanwhile, supply of late models and positions, although rising lately, still remain relatively scarce and prices reflect these conditions. At the other end of the spectrum, the older pre-owned models are getting more plentiful and prices range from US$30 million to US$40 million for aircraft averaging around 3,5004,000 hours total time is typical in this segment of the market. Two such examples traded in the market place this year in the US$35 million to US$36 million range, which is where the majority of these aircraft are expected to trade. Ironically, one recent impediment to the sale or older pre-owned BBJs relates to the uniqueness of each interior. While this is a key advantage to the initial owner seeking to customize the interior 100% to their liking it can sometimes become a hindrance at resale time with non-standard layouts or interior cosmetics that might not appeal to everyone. In a traditional jet with a more customized interior a second or third owner can easily change the cosmetics of the aircraft by swapping out soft-goods, carpet, sidewalls, headliner and other items, but on a BBJ changing configurations and cosmetics is the equivalent of an interior completion in terms of cost and time. Exclusion of a stateroom with shower can also be a hindrance which will heavily discount the resale value of a BBJ. As a specific example, high density VIP seating can be a hindrance or a benefit to the seller, depending on the requirements of buyers in the marketplace at any given time. Because of the rarity of BBJs with 30+ VIP seating, some will sell at a premium if a buyer requires additional seating, while at other times a lack of buyers seeking high-density seating means a seller may have to heavily discount the aircraft. The majority of BBJ clientele are large global corporate entities or wealthy businessmen, well-funded Governments, and royal families. Many of these buyers can afford to buy new, www.AvBuyer.com

and are drawn by the unique custom interiors and layouts to suit their mission profiles or tastes. Some of the recent BBJ buyers stemming from the Pacific Rim are exclusively buying new or nearly-new. The Asia-Pacific region has emerged very recently to garner a strong 20% market share of BBJs, and these buyers are truly unique in the General Business Aviation space characterized by many first time owners moving straight to the top-end offerings in the Business Aviation marketplace. These buyers consider any aircraft older than circa 2008 or with more than a few hundred hours as ‘old’! Despite these trends, recent price declines on early model BBJs to below US$40 million has enticed a new wave of buyers to consider the older pre-owned BBJ as an alternative to buying new because of the large price delta. A recent trend among the older pre-owned BBJs has manifested itself in the form of strong demand and interest originating out of the newly-emerging African continent (Nigeria, Angola, Madagascar and other such locales). Looking ahead, it is my belief that the previously overlooked early model BBJs will begin to generate strong demand at current prices from different type of buyer. From my experience over the past five or six years, and looking forward over the next few years to the introduction of the BBJ MAX line, I am very encouraged and excited at the Boeing BBJ product line. I truly believe the clientele at MEBA will come to the same conclusion which I’ve held for years. Simply put, I would argue that the BBJ is “The Ultimate Flying Machine”. ❯ Andrew C.

When you own one of the Tri-Jets, you own the best built business jet In the sky; and the Federal Aviation Adminstration has certified them with no life limits for any part of the airframe structure. They exhibit noteworthy handling manners, superb poise throughout the operating envelope, and light but not oversensitive control feel. In addition, Tri-Jets have set world and national records for distance, speed, time to climb and sustained altitude. With efficient space management the Falcon 900 Series aircraft have a larger passenger seating area than the Gulfstream IV. These Tri-Jets weigh 15 tons less and are 22 feet shorter than the Gulfstream IV and provide 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 worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first purpose built fly-by-wire (FBW) business jet, the Falcon 7X capitalizes on Mach 2 technology. FBW enables a MMO of .90 and enhanced low-speed handling, pitch and roll stability characteristics. The 7X can climb directly to FL 410 at ISA + 10° conditions. Two Hundred (200)+ very high speed, ultra long range Falcon 7X business jets have been ordered!

If you are considering the sale or acquisition of your business jet, call 21st Century Jet Corporation today for details before making a decision.

Aiming

Higher

for more than 50 years, there’s no such thing as cruising altitude. Fifty years ago, a new way of handling aircraft transactions took off— the Jetcraft way. Seeing every customer as unique. Working harder on every deal. Building a global network of expert partners and sales pros. Today, thanks to you, we’re one of the world’s top aircraft resellers. But simply cruising on our success isn’t our style. For the next 50 years, you can bet we’ll treat each deal like our first. Because “Always Ascending” is still the only way we fly. www.jetcraft.com I info@jetcraft.com I Headquarters +1 919-941-8400
