Helicopter Values Guide 2021-22

The commercial helicopter market is a resilient one, founded with well established and experienced stakeholders who are well practiced at managing the inevitable peaks and troughs the industry faces. The phrase ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ is well versed, but requires intuition to sense and feel. Whilst 2020 was a year of challenge, it was also a year that the commercial helicopter sector rose to that challenge. Covid19 removed 99% of the fixed wing transport aircraft revenue stream. In contrast, only a fraction of this loss impacted the rotary wing world. Many contracts continued undisturbed despite hygiene requirements and protective screens on helicopters. Sectors such as law enforcement, air ambulance sectors, fire support, SAR, Border Control, Offshore utility and private/VIP continued to operate. Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic doesn’t yet have an eradication policy, it Is coming under increasingly effective control that is slowly allowing all to ease back into business unscathed. New helicopter may have slowed, but the need to replace, renew or expand fleets of in-service helicopters continues. Whilst a helicopter might have up to 40 years of revenue earning capacity, it may only be suitable for its primary role for part of this time. Adaptable helicopters (that can be reconfigured economically and with limited time on the ground) are at a premium, and we can see that played out though the popularity of brands and types entering service. Medium helicopters are notably popular as they can be re-configured for secondary roles at minor expense. These are more commonly known as multi-versatile, multi-role assets. Annual totals of new Helicopter deliveries in 2020 were at a 15-year low, yet have recovered by more than 25% by Q3 of 2021. The value of these units delivered has also increased by 25%.   Click the link below to download a copy of our Helicopter Values Guide 2021-22 report. Download a Copy
