The latest Sandhills Global market report on the aviation industry reflects a third consecutive month of inventory expansion across all categories after a long, steady decline. However, the recent sustained growth in inventory levels hasn't reversed the rise in asking values for piston single or turboprop aircraft in Sandhills marketplaces. Pre-owned aircraft on the market are still relatively scarce in comparison with a year ago.

Sandhills' aviation products include ControllerController EMEA, Executive Controller, Charter HubAviation TraderAircraft Cost Calculator, and AircraftEvaluator. AircraftEvaluator is Sandhills' proprietary asset valuation tool for all types of aircraft, built using the same technology behind FleetEvaluator. Widely used and trusted across equipment, truck, and trailer industries, FleetEvaluator identifies asset values with unparalleled accuracy.

The key metric used in all of Sandhills' market reports is the Sandhills Equipment Value Index (EVI). Buyers and sellers can use the information in Sandhills EVI to monitor equipment markets and maximize returns on acquisition, liquidation, and related business decisions.

Chart Takeaways
This report includes detailed analysis of asking values and inventory trends in the worldwide used aircraft market along with charts that help readers visualize the data. It describes and quantifies important trends in the buying and selling of used piston single, turboprop, and jet aircraft.

U.S. and Canada Used Piston Single Aircraft

  • The Sandhills EVI for the piston single aircraft category posted a 24.1% year-over-year rise in asking values, up from 23.8% YOY the month prior. April 2022 values were $239,000 compared with $193,000 in April 2021. Month-over-month piston single aircraft asking values were up 1.4% over March 2022.
  • For the third straight month, inventory of piston single aircraft has exhibited an upward trend after a steady decline. YOY inventory was still down by 11.3% overall in April. However, this represents a 9-percentage point improvement from the previous month, and a 29-percentage point increase from the beginning of the year.

U.S. and Canada Used Turboprop Aircraft

  • Among turboprop aircraft, the Sandhills EVI logged a 24.1% YOY gain in asking values. April 2022 equipment values showed $1.8 million compared to $1.4 million in April 2021. Asking values in this category increased by 2.6% M/M.

  • The Large Jets class (EVI), which constitutes the highest percentage of total inventory, charted a 20.5% YOY value increase within the asking market. This was a decrease of approximately half a percentage point from the month prior. Asking values for April 2022 were $21.5 million, up from $17.8 million one year earlier. April's large jet inventory level was 58.4% lower on a YOY basis, but 5 percentage points higher than in March 2022.
