“An important thing to remember when viewing this report is that it is a snapshot of what took place in the business aircraft marketplace in the first quarter of the year rather than a predicter of the future,” explains Marc McKenzie, Duncan Aviation’s Aircraft Sales Lead Market Analyst. “It is a compilation of data that when used correctly can help operators better understand the ever-changing value of their aircraft to determine when it might make sense for them to make changes in their fleet.”
Duncan Aviation’s Aircraft Sales and Acquisitions team summarizes data from well-known industry sources and their own market knowledge and experience. They then compile it quarterly for the light jet, mid-size jet and long-range jet categories.
Working with Vref Publishing’s Aircraft Value Reference, Conklin de Decker Associates, Inc. and the aircraft manufacturers, the team regularly updates the data in these lists with the latest market intelligence on business aircraft models in operation today and how they compare to others in the same size category.
