CMS 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.

And, don’t be caught waiting for a delayed flight during FedEx’s rush hour in Memphis. You might be there awhile. While all of this anecdotal evidence would indicate a more robust economy for pre-owned aircraft values, such is not the case.
