In its continuing push to bring further transparency to the aircraft acquisition process, Asset Insight announced yesterday it will make available its direct operating cost (DOC) data for turbine-powered business aircraft free of charge. “Asset Insight is committed to building a healthy, inclusive, and educated community, without restricting access to information and knowledge by price,” said Asset Insight president Tony Kioussis.
The data is now available to users through Asset Insight’s eValues system. All it requires is individual users to select a free plan, and the creation of a login ID and password. Asset Insight’s DOC figures are based on real-time fuel costing, utilization, and maintenance expense for individual serial numbers in the active global fleet, compared with data from traditional sources that is typically updated monthly.
Availability of DOC data follows Asset Insight’s move earlier this month to offer users free access to serial-number-specific market values accounting for actual modifications, hourly cost maintenance program coverage, and maintenance inspection completions, as well as current and projected values by make, model, and year of manufacture.
