As a part of ongoing market surveillance, the following highlights some of the changes made for the 2015 Q3 update to mba’s redbook publication and redbookOnline valuation tool.

Jet Transport PLUS

  • While low fuel prices have lengthened the useful life of some four engine aircraft, values for the asset class remain soft due to an excess of supply on the market.
  • Despite an increase in FTKs reported in October, large widebody freighter aircraft continue to feel downward pressure on values as favor shifts toward belly freight and smaller widebody aircraft.
  • Market values for recent build Airbus A320ceos and Boeing 737NGs remain above Base as demand for the types strengthens alongside domestic passenger traffic growth.


  • Revival of the Turboprop:  DHC-8-100/-200/-300 values continue to outperform market expectations, with values strengthening due to demand for bush and utility turboprops.
  • Embraer’s E-175 experiences market favorability with recent fuel burn efficiency improvements, including winglet installation.  Values for the type remain above competitor Bombardier’s CRJ-900.
