The Aircraft Cost Evaluator (ACE)Â is the ideal benchmarking tool and assists aircraft owners, operators, brokers and dealers with important side-by-side operating cost and performance comparisons.Â ACE helps users make critical decisions on aircraft acquisitions whether they are downsizing to a smaller asset or taking advantage of the market with a larger aircraft purchase or trade.Â The most extensive operating cost database, ACE is referred to as the industry standard and is currently used by AMSTAT, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Robb Report, and Business Jet Traveler.Â The latest 2011 ACE Volume II subscribers now have access to the new ACE â€“ On the Go! web interface. Providing instant access to ACE cost reports and comparisons of aircraft fixed and variable costs on-line from any internet browser via smart phones, tablets, MAC or Windows laptop, ACE â€“ On the Go! doesn’t require any software installation and is free to subscribers.
Life Cycle Cost (LCC)Â puts all aspects of owning and operating an aircraft into one easy-to-use program.Â Aircraft acquisition costs, operating costs, taxes, final residual values and even revenues, if the user is in commercial operations, are all included in this business aviation budgeting tool. Life Cycle Cost is extremely important when determining whether to retain or replace aircraft, acquire new or used aircraft, and in evaluating the total economics of competing aircraft whether purchasing, financing, or leasing.Â This software predicts cash flows, Net Present Values and has a 12-month budget as well as a residual value analysis calculation.
The Aircraft Performance Comparator (APC)Â is the most comprehensive aircraft comparison tool available to the industry today. Part of a family of innovative software products created by Conklin & de Decker, the Aircraft Performance Comparator is a vital tool for anyone that is acquiring a Business Jet, Turboprop, Helicopter, or Piston airplane or needs to compare impartial aircraft performance data quickly and easily.
