Used market not as active?
« on: August 12, 2010, 09:43:09 PM »
Has anybody else had a really hard time selling a/c on the used market? I've been trying to dump a couple of CRJs for waaay below their value and I still cant' get rid of them. Is everyone having a financial crisis all the sudden? :P

I almost bought your CRJs when i started but of course when you start money is a issue. But i think its so close to there high cost checks i know thats whats turning me away from them that and i can get a operation lease for for 17 millon for the 1 of yours.

I've noticed that.
I have 8 fokker F.50's with fresh C/D checks that haven't sold despite being under their value.

Well, put up some ATR 72-200 and I'll take them right away unless the C/D-checks have expired :)

Alright I have removed all 8 Fokker F.50's and taken them into heavy maintenance,
the aircraft will be available in 35 game days complete with a fresh C/D check.

I will also negotiate the price of the Fokkers to suit your needs.
Purchase outright or lease is available when I put them back up.

They are very profitable aircraft in my opinion and I only replaced them with the Saab 2000's because I needed the speed on the longer flights between islands.

Every plane I fly so far is from the used market. There is no other place where I can get a 150 seat plane for less than 200K a month. I just won't be paying for D checks anytime soon.

Im trying to get away from the used market. Ive found having the same aircaft and being younger will save money. Of course leasing new aircraft is't that cheap. What's everyone opinion on new vs used. leased or bought.

I love the used market. I am making 900k a week with an 17 year old MD82. Just don't pay for the D check and keep an eye on the price of fuel and used planes can be real money makers.
