Our access to over 30 years of proprietary aviation data, regular involvement in strategic M&A and aircraft management expertise affords us regular access to the typical areas of contention between parties. IBA assists clients directly or via their legal teams across many aspects ranging from insurance related settlement for aircraft damage or loss, to disputes between lessors and lessees - often at redelivery.
We work globally to support the MRO community with research of aircraft historical performance, aircraft and engine values, maintenance cost benchmarking, shop visit forecasts and competitive analysis for all fixed and rotary wing aircraft, parts and engines.
Phil Seymour, IBA's President and Head of Advisory, and Crispin Maunder, Executive Chairman of LCI, come together to discuss the helicopter market and the impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic. With a combined experience of nearly 100 years in aviation, the pair discuss how Covid-19 has impacted the helicopter sector, drawing comparison to the fixed wing market. If you have any further questions, comments, or feedback on the topics discussed please contact Phil Seymour.
Pre-Covid, IBA forecast strong growth across the entire aftermarket: narrowbodies, widebodies and regional aircraft. There was an expanding fleet, heightened utilisation and increased demand for shop visits. The situation has evidently altered enormously and the most vulnerable assets, mature widebodies, will be the first to be withdrawn from shop visits.
When it comes to recovery, the short haul market will be first and there are some positive signs, many engines re-entering service in North America, Europe and Asia. However, despite increased flight volumes and resultant higher engine utilisation, load factors remain low. Border restrictions persist across all regions and passenger confidence to travel continues to challenge.
Voted Appraiser of the Year 2020, our third win, IBA's success is built on its teams of consultants, analysts and ISTAT- qualified appraisers whose business it is to make your investments and assets excel. For specialist aviation data, investment, valuation, asset management and legal services and expert opinion, trust IBA.
