ISTAT Appraisers' Program
The Winter 2017 issue of Jetrader will see the publication of the fifth and penultimate article in the ongoing ISTAT appraisers’ education series. Collaborated on by ISTAT Certified Senior Appraiser Neil Whitehouse and ISTAT Appraiser Emeritus and Member Emeritus Jack Feir, the next issue's article will take an in-depth focus on definitions. ISTAT appraisal definitions have become the industry standard for billions of dollars of financing and in litigation, as well. This article sets the definitions out and provides descriptive explanations for each.

Earlier articles in this series:
Part I: An Appreciation
Part II: Value Definitions, Unit Costs & More
Part III: Aircraft Economic Life
Part IV: Engine Values

In the Winter 2017 issue of Jetrader, which will reach members in early December, ISTAT Appraiser Emeritus and Member Emeritus Jack Feir will take us back to 1933 with a race from Britain to Australia on the aircraft "designed to win a race," the de Havilland DH88 Comet.
In continuing with the ongoing series of appraisals that appear in Jetrader, the Winter 2017 issue will feature the latest installments in this long-running feature. ISTAT Certified Senior Appraiser Olga Razzhivina, Oriel, will provide current and future values on the Airbus A319, and ISTAT Certified Appraiser Martin O’Hanrahan, AVITAS, will weigh in, and offer values and market commentary on the Boeing 737-700. Look for the issue to reach members in early December.

The introduction of the multilateral instrument will require consideration by the aviation leasing industry, particularly in the area of tax treaty benefits. In early 2013, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) published a background report to tackle perceived strategies used by global companies to minimize their tax burden though "base erosion and profit shifting" (BEPS). In the report, the OECD outlined the steps needed to address this perceived abuse of international tax rules that were no longer seen as sufficient in today's climate.

According to a recently released report from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), air travel will nearly double its current figures by the year 2036, with an estimated 7.8 billion passengers traveling by air.
Although passenger traffic demand for carriers based in the Middle East registered a 3.7 percent year-over-year increase in September, growth in the region is slowing, with the sluggish numbers attributed to security and travel restrictions enacted in early 2017.
While the global jet fleet is projected to double during the next 20 years to 51,800 aircraft, the parked fleet is expected to remain stable at approximately 2,100 aircraft, thanks to increasingly strategic end-of-life decisions.
