there are such books and websites available but all of the ones i know of require a subscription. if you are willing to pony up some major dollars you can try airclaims or avitas (not sure if they have a website). A few more exist, however, none of them are free.

what are you trying to find? maybe i can help.

I am looking for the price of used Fokker F50s, say roughly 15 years old. Thanks for your help.

I think realistic price of a Fokker 50 is somewhere around 2 Mio depending on conditions. I heard the market has gone up for them and may be now they asking more for it. Would not buy for a higher price !!

sorry that i took so long, was really busy. 1.93 million for the F50 is the current market value.

Do remember that so much has to do with the age and condition of the particular airplane, the number of hours and number of cycles it has flown, and what maintainance is due on the aircraft. $2 million is a reasonable start, but there is a huge range to consider in order to determine the proper price.

I heard the shell of a small jet (737 like) once the avionics, engines, wings, seats, bulkheads and kitchens are removed is only worth a few grand.. at that point all thats left is a hollow cigar tube with a wing shell.


If you wanted to get creative it's quite cheap, however the cost of splitting it and moving it, is what kills you.

well the age of the aircraft has already been taken into account. for the purpose of this particular analysis you have to simply assume that it is a generic F50. Of course the utilization (FH and cycles) matter, the mx condition, time to checks and so forth.

Where a used aircraft is on its maintenance cycle is also plays heavy on the price. A 20 year old aircraft fresh out of a "D" Check would bring a better price than a 15 year old one that requires a "D" Check.

No problem, always willing to help a fellow A-netter if possible.

Really, is that all that the alloys are worth? I am surprised that the recycled materials are not worth more than that.

What about the value of a used aircraft as scrap? Recently the price of most commodities (including, of course, oil) have gone through the roof. As an example I recently read that the original British 2p coins minted in the period following decimalisation now contain copper with a value 0f about 3p. So has the broken up value of an aircraft also increased recently. If it has, is the change significant enough to encourage airlines to replace old with (much more efficient) new?
