As part of my MBA program, I'm writing a thesis to assess what it takes to start an aircraft leasing company that focuses on the African market. I've gone through various market forecasts but they focus on new airplanes. Given the state of the African airline industry, I think re-marketed airplanes will play a prominent role. I'd like to evaluate aircraft values, in the market, and get a sense for what the profitability trends are by class.
Do you know where I can find aircraft values and ratings? I've tried getting in touch with folks from Ascend and Avitas, but haven't heard back.
I would greatly appreciate any information shared.
Thank you in advance!
