Selling aircraft.........
« on: February 29, 2016, 04:41:05 PM »
Hi there,

Can you tell me if it is normal for the book price of an aircraft to be higher than the original purchase price?

I listed an old connie for sale, it has a book price of 7 196 000, yet the original purchase price is listed as 6 034 600,  then of course there is weekly and yearly depreciation to consider, so I would have thought the book price should go down rather than up?    Plus when I tried to list it for sale at the book price, so I didn't make a loss, I wasn't able to - the error message told me I was trying to sell it too high above the recommended price (which was just over 3m)

Every D check will increase the book value since D checks are depreciated over time, while A-C checks are immediate expenses.

so that means doing the dcheck before selling increases its value?

Of course, and even more for the buyer : he knows he has 8 years of exploitation before having the next Dcheck stoping the plane for a long time. It's usually a good idea to clean the C/D checks before putting an airplane for sale. Makes the steel more attractive.

If it sells, who cares?

If it does not sell, then improve the packaging(by making the long-term checks) and reduce the price.
