One of the largest assets that an airline has are aircraft, therefore it is critically important to develop a methodology that estimates an aircraft's value, and which also determines efficient utilization to ensure an acceptable rate of return on the asset. Aircraft Finance provides a comprehensive review of aircraft finance and valuation and presents a detailed methodology for accurately valuations. The methodology measures return on investment, improves the efficiency of managing operating costs and more effectively determines revenue analysis.
