Aircraft Economic Life Summit 2015

With only 535 aircraft retirements (i.e. scrapped) in 2014, compared to 724 in 2013, has the retirement peak passed? Is this a function of low oil prices stimulating the continued use of less fuel efficient aircraft? Are we seeing less, or more, instances of the ‘premature’ retirement of current generation assets? What effect is the continued level of retirements having on the supply of spare engines and spare parts? What will happen when the oil price climbs again? How will the ‘composite generation’ of A350XWBs and Boeing 787s change the economic life equilibrium? Age is one aspect of economic life – but what about asset values?

The debate regarding the useful economic life of aircraft continues unabated. Historical patterns, the learned observations of experts, and healthy discussion will resume at this 2nd Aircraft Economic Life Forum.

If you own, operate, finance, lease or invest in commercial aircraft, regardless of their age or vintage, you should attend and hear the industry’s key participants engage in informed debate. Knowing what’s in and what’s out of favour, where the opportunities lie, and what can be done with end of life assets, will provide delegates with a heads start on the competition.
