Aerocor has released the second edition of its Beechcraft Premier buyer’s guide. The aircraft brokerage said that after it issued the first edition in 2020, positive response from potential buyers corresponded with an increase in demand for the light twinjet, which has a composite fuselage and aluminum wings.
According to Aerocor, the latest edition includes a new section covering aftermarket upgrades, as well as current pricing for engine programs and the Collins avionics service program. It also covers common avionics failures, routine maintenance, cost of ownership, training options, and insurance premiums.
“The guide is designed to provide potential buyers with all the information they need to make an informed decision when considering the purchase of a Beechcraft Premier I or IA,” said Aerocor client services manager Jens Personius. “Reliable information about out-of-production aircraft can be very tough to find, which puts both buyers and sellers at a disadvantage. The aim with this guide and other resources such as our fleet updates and quarterly market reports is to boost liquidity and buyer confidence by filling the information gap left by the manufacturer after production was ceased.”
Personius told AIN that there are 153 Premier IAs and 117 Premier Is in service. Fourteeen IAs are up for sale with four of those currently under contract, while 17 Premier Is are on the market with six currently under contract, he said.
