Economic Analysis »
A Commercial Aviation Consultancy

Assessing the comparative economics of aircraft is a tricky business, as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer all shade economic data they publicly release to favor their aircraft, often using assumptions that provide markedly different results.  We have developed a proprietary methodology to provide “apples to apples” comparisons of aircraft based on publicly available data from manufacturers, our own economic models, and other information resources that enable us to compare and contrast the economics of today’s commercial aircraft in an unbiased manner.

Because manufacturers routinely “price to the point of economic indifference” our data enables us to better assess the potential demand for and profitability of aircraft programs, and more accurately predict their residual values in a competitive market.   We have worked with a number of manufacturers, suppliers, airlines and leasing companies to help them forecast which aircraft will gain a stronger position in the marketplace, and which would not be as wise to bet on in their planning processes, and can offer our insights into every commercial aircraft program from the unbiased perspective of comparative economics.
