selling used aircraft
« on: May 24, 2013, 10:38:04 PM »
from your experience, how quick are aircraft you list get sold? I'm going to sell a bunch of mine.

I have:
1 A300-600   - 14.5 yrs old   Y261 C21 F8, fresh D-check
2 A300-600R - 3/3.5 yrs old  Y261 C21 F8
8 757-300     - ~3.7 yrs old  Y204 C10 F6

Depends on the demand.
Looking at the UM I would think your A300-600s will take some time. Especially considering one is 14.5 years old - I could be wrong but I would guess that most airlines with enough cash to buy A300s will not be interested in buying 15 year old brids - leasing may be a better option.
There are currently no 757-300s on the UM so this one should move a bit faster. Obviously it all depends how cheap/expensive you make them. The brokers will buy them eventually - but that depends on price, demand etc. etc. and may take some time.

See if all your checks are done on these. They make them more attractive and fetch a bit more money. Yes, and leasing is probably going to be your best option. I see a fresh D check has been done so that's good. How about C checks? I look at that too if I'm going to lease. Anyway, what Pukeko said makes a lot of sense. ;)

they usually get their C-checks on time. I haven't listed anything yet, but im hoping the system picks the A306/Rs up. the old one I might lease on my own. the other two are worth a lot of money, and I'm hoping an airline or the system picks them up. I will probably be selling them undervalue.

the 753 i'm converting into 763, to preserve fleet commonality, as i get rid of the leased 752s. looking at the UM market, and their age, they should sell pretty fast. the 763s come into the picture next year, so that's when i plan to sell the 753s.
