Many may see this as gloom and doom. I choose to see this buyers market as an opportunity to enter the market a very comfortable level. It’s time for the air taxis operators to upgrade their fleets and add equipment without having a large monthly payments. Private individuals can buy an aircraft they would have not been able to afford 6 months ago. Corporations need to acquire equipment to seize market opportunities around the globe especially those in cities that the airlines have cut service.
