When it comes to investing in aviation assets, the clock is always ticking. At Cirium, we understand that the smartest forward-thinking strategies demand that we also look back in time. We know that you need to know the aviation market trends and fluctuations of the past to not only add qualitative weight to real-time data but also to plot your next best move. Small wonder then that comprehensive historical fleet data you can rely on is worth its weight in gold.

So, how do you know when an aviation asset is a safe longer-term bet or fast approaching its sell-by date? To know this, you need to know the historical valuation of the type of aircraft, helicopter, business jet or engine; the relationship between market spot values and model values over a period, and the resilience of values over time.

For aviation finance pros not already in the loop, it’s time to check out Cirium Values Time Series – the historical aircraft values data resource covering commercial jets, helicopters, business jets and engines that’s designed to help you raise your game.

What is a Values Time Series?

Quite simply, it’s an easy way to understand changes in values over the past 50 years by aircraft or engine type. We’ve sliced this data to cover three key bases.  Here’s your checklist…

Generic Values Time Series:

  • Base specification, including maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) and type of engine on wing
  • Historical, current and future values
  • Market Values, Market Lease Rates, Half-Life, Full-Life, Base Values, Base Lease Rates and Soft Market Values

Specification adjusted Values Time Series:

  • Higher or lower certified MTOW or different engine variants
  • Specific modifications – winglets, sharklets, crew rest areas all have different adjuster value points

Modifications apply for historical, current and future by types and variants.

Retrospective forecast Values Time Series:

  • Historical forecasted values to provide a comparison vs. today’s values
  • Generic or specification adjusted values available
