Jetrader Magazine
Historically, the received wisdom has been that the economic life of an aircraft was around 25 years. Over the years, this has fluctuated--in certain types faster than others. In addition, more and more countries have introduced restrictions on the age of aircraft that can be operated on their registers, which has had some effect on the secondary market.

On the other side, we are seeing the consequences of the significant production backlogs from the manufacturers. So what can we expect from the future of aircraft remarketing? Read more in the Fall issue of Jetrader magazine.
