What happened to used market? - there is literally no planes from "independent" companies there, just overpriced planes from Lunar with expired C,D-checks. Anyone to explain?
one C check normally cost you about $1M, and $4-5M for a D check
Most of the planes I put on the used market at a price which is $2-3M lower than the fair value, which compensate the C/D checks needed.
if you believe this is "overpiced", well, nothing is cheap in the used market.
For popular models, 20-30% mark up is typical even with AI leasors, and you still can make loads of money by paying a little premium without waiting.
Happy hunting for cheap planes.
