Keeping Score: Analysis of an Engine's Shop Visit Rate
Keeping Score: Analysis of an Engine's Shop Visit Rate provides both a quantitative and qualitative analysis of an engine’s Shop Visit Rate (SVR) and highlights why the parameter serves as a useful measure of overall reliability; its intended purpose being to measure levels of reliability inherent in the engine as designed and manufactured, and the reliability that is observable during operation. However, while an engine’s SVR is a versatile and powerful performance measure, the parameter is often misunderstood and cited incorrectly as a time on-wing metric. As highlighted in the report, a characteristic point about the SVR is that its primary purpose as a performance metric is to quantify the rate of engine replacements within a specified period.
Redelivery Considerations in Aircraft Operating Leases
Redelivery Considerations in Aircraft Operating Leases examines guidelines and best practices applied by lessors to manage the redelivery process of their aircraft assets. These practices are fundamental to underpinning favorable residual value and providing the best assurance for re-marketing potential. Topics covered include.
- Pre-redelivery considerations consisting of: a.) planned meeting agendas, b.) records review, and c.) physical inspection procedures
- Return condition considerations consisting of: a.) condition status of the aircraft, b.) checks & part lives, c.) documentation & standards, and d.) certificate of airworthiness matters
Commercial Aspects of Aircraft Customization
Commercial Aspects of Aircraft Customization provides an introduction to the aircraft customization process. The research examines how airlines choose among the enormous number of selectable options available, primarily in the form of Seller- Furnished Equipment (SFE) and Buyer-Furnished Equipment (BFE). An analysis of the economics associated with the customization process is also discussed and quantified. Lastly, the report highlights why & how the major manufacturers are forgoing a traditional BFE approach and advancing the industry into a new era with increased standardization and fewer options.
Aircraft Payload-Range Analysis for Financiers
Aircraft Payload-Range Analysis for Financiers provides an introduction to aircraft performance analysis by examining the payload-range diagram, one of the most widely means used by airlines to compare the operating economics of an aircraft. Aircraft operational weights are discussed to examine their relationship on payload-range performance.
The report also illustrates how multi-range versions of an aircraft type can help the airline better achieve both operational flexibility and cost advantages to particular parts of its network. Ideally, there should be a match between the stage lengths in the airline network and optimum payload-range of the aircraft employed.

Basics of Aircraft Market Analysis
Basics of Aircraft Market Analysis details a framework to identify ideal assets for long-term economic returns. The analysis examines key factors influencing an aircraft’s value retention capability, and highlights the appropriate timing of such investments and/or divestment in relation to the aircraft value cycle. Topics discussed consist of: Aircraft value retention factors ; Benchmarking aircraft value retention ; Aircraft value cycles ; Benchmarking the entry/exit points within the aviation cycle. A sample case study is also presented, which guides the reader through the market analysis of the Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
Basics of Aircraft Maintenance Reserves
Basics of Aircraft Maintenance Reserve provides an in-depth introduction and analysis of aircraft maintenance reserve theory and best practices. All aspects of maintenance reserve topics are examined, including understanding the application of reserves, calculation of reserves, and maintenance reserve contract management. The report includes practical exercises that will enable readers to better grasp the theory, and will be of value to anyone in involved in aircraft asset management or aircraft leasing.
Engine Maintenance Concepts for Financiers
Engine Maintenance Concepts for Financiers report provides a complete, accessible description of the economic principals associated with turbofan shop maintenance practices. Topics examined consist of: a.) engine maintenance planning concepts ; b.) primary causes of engine removals ; c.) factors influencing engine time on-wing ; d.) engine maintenance reserve development ; e.) engine direct maintenance costs ; f.) engine severity curves ; and g.) engine maintenance valuation.
The Relationship Between an Aircraft's Value and it's Maintenance Status
The Relationship Between an Aircraft's Value and it's Maintenance Status provides insights into concepts and theory related to an aircraft’s value and its maintenance adjusted valuation; an aircraft’s maintenance status is used to assess, in whole or part, the value of maintenance utility remaining and, depending on the age of the aircraft, can represent a significant proportion of an aircraft’s overall market value. Topics discussed include: Introduction to aircraft maintenance utility & maintenance status ; Monitoring, quantifying & forecasting maintenance status ; Aircraft valuation terminologies ; Relationship between aircraft values and maintenance status ; Maintenance value recognition in lease transactions ; Forecasting maintenance status value cycles ; Framing the optimal trading period
