Conklin & de Decker’s latest Aircraft Cost Evaluator Volume 1 has been released.
The evaluator delivers up-to-date operating cost data to help subscribers stay ahead in these turbulent times, according to company officials.
The 2009 Aircraft Cost Evaluator (ACE) release adds more aircraft, including the Honda Jet that is forecasted to be certified in 2010. The King Air 350ER, Cirrus SR22 GTS Turbo and Mooney Acclaim Type S were also added in this release. This new version of ACE also includes the ability to add CO2 offset costs.
With ACE, users can compare up to three aircraft side-by-side, edit nearly two dozen variables, change currencies, and change measurement units to customize reports allowing users to compare their local costs and salaries. A query function allows the user to narrow the selection to those that meet specific performance criteria.
“Many owners and operators are looking for ways to take advantage of the current aircraft market and our benchmarking tool can give them a quick and accurate snapshot of the aircraft operating costs they need to compare,” said Bill de Decker, president.
The price for the latest edition of Aircraft Cost Evaluator is $625 for jets, $550 for turboprops or helicopters and $450 for the piston database. Updated twice each year, the cost includes the original CD plus one free update. Handbooks are available for an additional $75 each. Discounts for multiple databases run from $100 to $300. Customized reports for individual aircraft can be special ordered for $75 per aircraft with a 20% discount for multiple aircraft. In addition, multiple user licenses are available.
