According to a recent market update from Amstat (Booth No. 2218), the worldwide inventory of pre-owned business jets listed for sale decreased from 18 percent to 17.2 percent in September.
Amstat’s monthly Market Analysis showed the same trend for turboprops. After reaching a peak in April, the past two to three months have shown a slight decrease in the inventory of pre-owned turboprops for sale.
To put the recent situation into historical perspective, in late 2007 and early 2008 this metric hovered around 10 percent for jets and 8 percent for turboprops. Since 1990 the average has been roughly 12 to 13 percent.
