LINCOLN, Neb., April 8, 2024

LINCOLN, Neb., April 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Last month, Sandhills Global reported that used aircraft inventory levels were resuming an upward trend. This continued in March, especially in the late-model used aircraft segment. "Although the bulk of available used aircraft in the market is five years old or older, we've seen an uptick in used late-model aircraft inventory levels over the past few months," says Controller Department Manager Brant Washburn. "Late-model aircraft inventory levels increased more than 20% since February while other age groups increased marginally." 

•Inventory levels of used jets grew 3.78% month over month in March. Inventory was up 7.41% year over year, indicating a steady supply, although the market is experiencing downward pressure on prices.
•Asking values decreased 4.23% M/M and 6.82% YOY in March. However, some segments within the overall jet category bucked this trend; the used light jet aircraft market, for instance, stands out with asking values remaining higher than last month’s figures.
