Author Topic: [-] Airplanes with ALMOST expired heavy maintenance are overvalued  (Read 274 times)

The present used aircraft pricing system doesn't seem to account for C and D checks timing.
See today's DOFM used market (10-Feb-1995), pick B727-200Adv, 19 birds are listed, organize it by age, and compare two similar aged aircraft, say 15 years old, one with almost expired heavy check, the other not:

(a) 15y old, C check expires in less than one month, D check expires in ten months, "fair price to be between 16.1m - 18.9m"
(b) 15y old, C check expires in ten months, D check expires in over 6 years, and... "fair price to be between 16.9m - 19.8m"

Similar aircraft,
Similar "fair price",
But the D check alone costs more than 5m... So the "fair price" should be around 4m lower on (a).

I am missing something here?
Is this a bug?

The system already takes this into account, if D check is closer than 90 days 1.1*priceDcheck is reduced and if C check is closer than 60 days 1.15*priceCcheck is reduced from the recommended price calculation
