Inventory Levels Continue Climb Across Aviation Categories, Values in Decline

Published: Jul. 6, 2022 at 5:55 PM MDT

LINCOLN, Neb., July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the latest Sandhills Global market reports covering the aviation industry, values for piston single, turboprop, and jet aircraft may have peaked this May. All aviation categories displayed month-to-month value decreases from May to June, and with the aviation market showing signs that values might continue their drop in the near future, sellers could need to adjust asking values going forward based on the available inventory. The market reports show that rising inventory levels are a major contributor to decreasing aviation values, and this June marked the fourth consecutive month of inventory expansion across all categories.
