Marketline Summer 2016: Current Market Strength

Current Market Strength represents an aircraft’s current strength in the market. An A+ rating indicates the aircraft is enjoying a very firm market. Prices for an A+ aircraft are steadily rising, and holding times are very short or nonexistent. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a C- aircraft is one experiencing a very soft market. Its price is commonly discounted, and it often sets on the ramp in excess of eight months before selling. It is important to remember that Current Market Strength is not a forecast. It is valid only at Marketline’s effective date of release. See chart below.

Attend the new Aircraft Bluebook Market Values Roundtable to understand the pressure points that affect business aircraft residual values and incorporate the insight into your own forecasts of future values. The event follows the SpeedNews 21st Annual Business & General Aviation Industry Suppliers Conference. Learn more.
