Conklin & de Decker Celebrates 30th Anniversary

 - February 25, 2014, 9:15 PM

Aviation industry data provider Conklin & de Decker is celebrating its 30th year in business, and in honor of that milestone is offering special discounts on its products here at Heli-Expo. During the three days of the show, attendees visiting the company’s booth (No. 3002) can see live demonstrations of the company’s family of helicopter operating cost programs and life cycle budgeting tools. Buyers will receive a 10-percent discount off the price of the company’s most popular data products, including the Aircraft Cost Evaluator, the Life Cycle Cost, the Aircraft Performance Comparato, and its recently released Tax Guide for General Aviation. The last contains the latest taxes and fees imposed on general aviation in all 50 states, and it also addresses the sales and use taxes applicable to aircraft sales, ownership, leases, parts and labor. As many states continue to find ways to “enhance their revenues,” the guide will provide subscribers with continuous downloadable updates throughout the year through the Conklin & de Decker website.

The company also recently announced that it has acquired the Aircraft Cost Analysis program and software, a user-friendly management tool that helps aviation professionals with the pricing of managed, fractional share, rental, charter and agricultural airplanes and helicopters. Aircraft Cost Analysis was originally developed and supported by Samuel Miller, who will continue to provide support for current program subscribers during the transition.

Here at Heli-Expo 2014, Conklin & de Decker announced that registration for its annual Exploring Aircraft Operating Costs seminar (to be held this year on May 14-15 in Texas) has opened. Conklin & de Decker is offering a discount to customers who register early to attend multiple seminars this year. Attendees who register for all three of the company’s education conferences will receive a 20-percent discount; those who register for two events will receive a 15-percent discount. Show attendees can also register at the booth for a chance to win either an iPad mini or a Google Nexus 7 tablet.
