In our last newsletter back in June, we mentioned the oil moratorium as an item to watch. Since then, we've written notes and descriptions for a number of financiers who were concerned about the impact of the moratorium on the helicopter market.
At HeliValue$, our most-asked question of the past quarter has been, “What's going on with the helicopter market?” There are so many answers to that – the easy ones are everywhere, “Not much,” “It's just the economy,” or “Too much supply, too little demand,” accompanied by an eye-roll.
Are you thinking about buying a helicopter? Selling one? Funding a purchase or lease? As in economics, there are both micro and macro elements critical to its value.
