An unsellable aircraft?
« on: January 13, 2015, 03:46:28 PM »
I've been trying to sell an IL-114 for ages but the computer used market is refusing to buy it even though I've stuck it at the low end of its reasonably assigned value. Am I better off reducing the asking price or simply using it as collateral for a loan?

No model preference in the AI used market at all actually.

For new a/c orders from the manufacturer there's a list of what they are looking for and Tu-114 for example is not one of them. ;)

So what do I do? Just keep listing a progressively lower value until the computer broker buys it at some point? How soon should the broker step in and buy it?

Scrap it. The lifetime of russian steel is shorter than its western counterparts.

It can be good, I'm very happy of my A148s, but they age bad, due to excessive maintenance costs.
