Newswatch 11th May 2017
ISTAT Asia this week. Any signs of slowdown, bubble, over production or lack of capital have been largely dismissed by those 800 delegates. They can’t all be wrong, can they?
Unfortunate news for Boeing today which suspended 737Max flights citing an engine issue. The delay is believed to be related to quality rather design and deliveries are not expected to be impacted which is great news for the launch customers, especially Norwegian as the LCLH competition heats up.
For those who missed our joint commercial and accounting seminar with KPMG on depreciation, residual values and useful economic lives last week, click here to see the deck, it’s excellent. This was a lively debate with acknowledgement that depreciation across various aircraft types is increasingly being applied differently by airlines and lessors.
Our next seminar is with Allen & Overy in London on 25th May at 4:30pm. The session topic is “Defaults and repossessions: managing the risks and avoiding the pitfalls”, and we will be reviewing how to improve the monitoring of operators at risk and how best to blend legal and operational expertise to minimise the commercial impact of a struggling operator. If you would like a place please use the link here to register.
For those heading to AFJ New York next week, we have a stand in the Astor exhibition area where we will be demonstrating our new data analysis platform IBA.iQ. Please drop by, or come to my speaker session on Aircraft Value Retention on Tuesday 16th. If you would like a meeting with myself or Stu Hatcher please drop me a line.
