is there a proper way to prepay for aircraft that will be delivered in the future?
I have a large order of aircraft, with deliveries throughout the next 5 years. I paid 20% at order, 80% on delivery. as it stands, I owe around $99M at every delivery, due to a nice large order discount. I'd like to prepay some of next year's deliveries, mostly so i could reduce my tax liability for this year. but when i go to the aircraft on order page, and I modify the specific orders to 100%, the updated figure is $130M payment. pretty much erasing my discount and any savings. Am I doing something wrong here, or is this a technical limitation?
