Resale pricing adjustments are based on actual sales transactions and current market conditions such as overall trends in asking prices, increase or decrease in supply, demand, and sales volume. We obtain sales pricing data from owners and operators, lenders and lessors, brokers and equipment manufacturers worldwide.

While we do review all models each quarter, frequently traded models are updated as soon as they begin to show variation from the previously published values. Stay up to date on resale pricing changes by purchasing an annual subscription.

2Q Market Overview

 

The summer has been hot and so has the helicopter resale market, especially compared to 2020. 2Q sales continue to improve over the previous quarters. This trend is finally moving in the right direction. This is great news and is definitely a positive, but there are some negatives mixed in the equation. The older and higher time helicopters are not drawing the same attention as the newer and lower time helicopters. Most older models are still seeing quantities of available aircraft increasing, while also seeing values decreasing. The quantity of some older models on the resale market continues to increase. In the Piston market, the inventory available for sale has been steadily decreasing. The Light Turbine sales have been slowing down for corporate / VIP configured ships, but increasing for the EMS, utility, and offshore. In the Medium Turbine market, we are seeing a steady increase in sales among all the configurations. The Heavy Turbine market is currently in limbo with only a few sales in the works.

Piston Aircraft summary for the past quarter

  • Available aircraft have decreased from 505 aircraft to 472 aircraft, 6.53% decrease.
