Conklin & de Decker has released its 2010/2011 Aircraft Performance Comparator, which presents comparative data for those acquiring a business jet, turboprop, helicopter, or piston airplane or needs to compare aircraft performance data quickly.
This newly updated software program allows users to overlay and compare aircraft interiors and exteriors as well as critical performance data that come directly from the manufacturer’s approved aircraft flight and performance manuals, company officials explain, noting, users make apples-to-apples comparisons from the extensive database of aircraft that are now displayed on the same scale, making it easier to evaluate and print reports.
Also new in the 2010/2011 edition of the Aircraft Performance Comparator is that all of the performance graphs utilize engineering scale labeling, making them easier to read. The Help section has also been rewritten with expanded explanations for charts and performance categories to offer clearer definitions. Hundreds of updates and dozens of new aircraft have been added in recent years. The 2010/2011 release includes preliminary data on the new Embraer Legacy 650, the King Air C90GTx and 350i, Bell 429, and Diamond DA-42NG along with many updates on other jets, turboprops and helicopters.
“The Aircraft Performance Comparator is a great tool for dealers and brokers or anyone going through the aircraft acquisition process,” commented Bill de Decker, president and co-founder of Conklin & de Decker. “It is even more important today that aircraft buyers have the most current and comprehensive data before deciding which new or pre-owned aircraft is right for them.”
The price for the latest edition of the Aircraft Performance Comparator is $695 for jets, $595 for turboprops or helicopters and $450 for the piston database. Discounts for multiple databases run from $100 to $300. Customized reports for individual aircraft can be special ordered for $100 per aircraft with a 20% discount for multiple aircraft. In addition, multiple user licenses are available.
