The Official Helicopter Blue Book®
Online access to The Official Helicopter Blue Book® includes The Official Helicopter Specifications Book®, current resale pricing, current and historical manufacturer pricing, Perspectives: A Resale History®, average resale trends, and component overhaul and retirement cycles for over 200 civilian helicopter models. The Official Helicopter Blue Book® has been continuously published since 1979. During this time, HV$ has developed relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), overhaul facilities, brokers, finance and lease firms, and many operators that aid in our data collection. These relationships, in combination with the 2,500 appraisal HV$ performs annually allows HV$ to provide accurate current and historical resale data for more than 200 civilian helicopter models.
The HeliCalc® tool is helpful when considering a purchase, pre-lease commitments, internal evaluations, and for our customers who perform their own appraisals and require a more in-depth approach than a Blue Book page. The calculator is built on HeliValue$ Blue Book database and calculations are made based on our proprietary algorithms developed and used in our own appraisal programs for four decades and for over 2,500 helicopter appraisals performed each year.
