Conklin & de Decker Releases 2016 Aircraft Performance Comparator

Conklin & de Decker announces the release of its 2016 Aircraft Performance Comparator, the most comprehensive aircraft comparison data available to the industry. Part of a family of innovative software products created by Conklin & de Decker, the Aircraft Performance Comparator is a must-have tool for anyone who is acquiring a business jet, turboprop or piston-engine aircraft or helicopter and needs to compare aircraft performance data, quickly and easily.

Designed for aircraft buyers, dealers and brokers, the newly updated program allows users to easily overlay or compare aircraft interiors and exteriors side-by-side and evaluate the critical performance data points that are collected directly from the manufacturer’s approved flight and performance manuals. Range versus payload, baggage area sizes, and critical performance details are all quickly accessible. Users make apples-to-apples comparisons from the extensive database of over 300 aircraft that are displayed on the same scale, for a quick and easy evaluation.

  • Recalculated and updated chart data for numerous helicopters
