The Aircraft Graybook utilizes Asset Insight’s patent-pending Asset Grading System Process to derive the Baseline Asset Insight Index (“Baseline Index”) for more than 100 fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, based on their date of manufacture and total flight hours.
“The Graybook will allow users to quickly evaluate the estimated condition of an aircraft, by make, model, and date of manufacture, with the click of a mouse button,” said AI2 President Tony Kioussis. “With this edition of Aircraft Graybook, subscribers will also be able to view fixed-wing aircraft Fair Market Value estimates generated by SAI Valuations (SAI), for each year of manufacture and based on recent market conditions. Together, the Maintenance Rating, Financial Rating, Maintenance Equity Value and estimated value data can provide a more complete market picture for buyers and sellers.”
On the Asset Insight website, subscribers can enter the make and model aircraft they are researching and The Aircraft Graybook will display the following based upon each aircraft’s production date:
- The aircraft’s total estimated utilization based on average annual flight hours.
- Total estimated utilization figures greater and less than the average utilization figure are also displayed.
- The Baseline Asset Insight Index corresponding to each utilization rate.
- SAI’s estimated Fair Market Value for each aircraft year of manufacture.
Subscribers are also able to download a report for their specific aircraft of interest and selected manufacture date that explains the assumptions deriving the data and provides a one-page summary that details the Baseline Index for the various utilization flight hours.
