JETNET Releases February 2011 Pre-Owned Business Jet and Business Turboprop Aircraft and Helicopter Market Information

apr_report2UTICA, NY – JETNET LLC, the leading provider of corporate aviation information, has released February 2011 results for the pre-owned business jet, business turboprop, and helicopter markets.

U.S. vs International Business Jets For Sale

Chart A shows the percentage of domestic U.S. versus international Business Jets For Sale from 1990 to 2010.
During the decade of the 1990s the ratio ranged from a high of 83/17 to a low of 66/34 and then increased again to 79/21 for much of the decade of the 00s. However, starting in 2008 this ratio declined rapidly over a two-year period, ending with a 67/33 ratio in 2010. In our view, this change in direction has had an impact on the stubbornly high For Sale inventory levels we witnessed throughout 2010.

Market Summary
Highlighted in Table A are the key worldwide trends across all aircraft market segments, comparing February 2011 to February 2010. Business Jet inventory percentage For Sale showed the largest change (down 1.4 points), to 14.4% from 15.8%. Both turbine and piston helicopter sectors were basically unchanged in percentage For Sale for February 2011 compared to 7% for the same period in 2010.

Business Jet Sale Transactions increased 17.2% YTD in February 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. Business turboprops also showed a positive change of 10.4%. Both helicopter categories saw large double-digit declines in sale transactions (down 31% for turbine and 28.5% for piston) YTD in February 2011 vs. 2010, in a further softening of asking prices across all sectors.
