Conklin & de Decker Release Latest Aircraft Cost Evaluator 16.1

Conklin & de Decker announces the 16.1 release of its Aircraft Cost Evaluator, the industry’s #1 tool for benchmarking the operating and ownership costs for more than 585 jets, turboprops, helicopters and piston aircraft. As the flagship product from the Conklin & de Decker family of aircraft operating and acquisition data products, this aircraft cost evaluator (ACE) release includes access to ACE Online at no additional fee.

Aircraft Cost Evaluator, with its ACE Online feature, is the ideal solution for aircraft owners, operators, brokers and dealers that need to make important side-by-side operating cost, specification and performance comparisons. ACE enables users to make critical decisions regarding aircraft acquisitions and is often referred to as the industry standard. Currently, ACE is used by AMSTAT, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Jet Traveler, Twin & Turbine, Executive & VIP Jets and AvBuyer magazine.

The latest Aircraft Cost Evaluator allows comparisons of up to three (3) different aircraft in a single report, no matter what aircraft type is being compared, while ACE Online allows comparisons of up to six (6) aircraft. Once the analysis is completed, the easy-to-read comparison report can quickly be emailed as a PDF file. As Conklin & de Decker continues to expand its databases with the latest aircraft, every ACE release contains updated fuel costs, maintenance parts & labor costs, and all the data necessary for SEC reporting.

As an added benefit, ACE subscribers have access to Conklin & de Decker’s online reference tool, the Aviation Resource Library, that provides online access to more tools and information, such as fuel & maintenance costs; fleet plan checklist; helicopter seating chart; max range at long range cruise; aircraft alias’; engine installation summaries; and the aircraft CO2 calculator. ACE subscribers also have access to AircraftPedia™ that includes over 2,900 aircraft drawings and historical biographies on various aircraft models. The recently expanded drawings can easily be exported into presentations or proposals.
