Performance Aircraft Launches Cirrus Aircraft Market Reports

May 2, 2016

Cirrus Market ReportsMay 2, 2016 – Lincoln, Nebr.– Performance Aircraft, a Lincoln, Nebr. based aircraft sales company (www.flyperformance.com), announced today that it has officially launched Aircraft Market Reports for pre-owned Cirrus aircraft, including the SR20, SR22, and SR22T models. According to President and Founder Bill Heckathorn, the new Aircraft Market Reports are part of the company’s strategic vision to help customers easily access the information they need to make confident decisions as they buy and sell aircraft.

The new Aircraft Market Reports allow others to see trends from all the data the company has been collecting on the pre-owned Cirrus market since 2013. Users can see if the market for a specific Cirrus model is filling up or emptying out, how long aircraft are staying on the market on average, pricing trends, live stats (updated weekly), and more. The company’s Market Research Database breaks down the Cirrus markets by generations (G2, G3, etc) and also by options inside each generation, giving a more comprehensive understanding of the Cirrus markets.

“Our goal in launching Aircraft Market Reports is to provide an industry-leading online resource for individuals as they buy and sell aircraft,” Heckathorn said. “We input every Cirrus that comes on and off the market into our exclusive Market Research Database, so we have a vast amount of rich data to help us report objectively on these markets.”

Performance Aircraft originally built its exclusive Market Research Database after the last recession, starting with the pre-owned Cessna markets. At that time, many aircraft buyers were convinced the market was going to get worse, while sellers felt that the market was recovering. When the economy started to improve and stabilize, very little information was available to inform buyers and sellers on the aircraft markets. Even during a stable market, aircraft appraisal software is helpful, but lacks accuracy. Without a government agency collecting actual sale prices, the book values indicated by appraisal software are based on sale prices reported voluntarily by sellers. Most experts see book values as a good benchmark, while agreeing that more leading indicators on the piston aircraft markets are needed.

“If you bought a pre-owned SR22 a couple years ago and it was advertised on the market, we could go into our Market Research Database and tell you how long your plane was on the market before you bought it, what all the price changes were, and how many other similar SR22s were on the market at the same time as yours,”Heckathorn stated. “And if you are thinking of selling that same plane today, you can now see a variety of useful information, including how many SR22s like yours have been on market in the last 90 days, average ask prices, average aircraft times, and more.”

What satisfied customers are saying...

  • I did not expect that the sale would go quickly, in fact, I anticipated that I would have a couple of extra months to fly the plane as we waited for a purchaser to come along. The marketing that was done on my behalf created an immediate interest in the plane. This transaction was easy on me, as the Performance team produced amazing results in record time with very little input on my part. In my opinion, there is no better team to represent you when you buy or sell an aircraft.
    – Thomas M. Belford, Nebraska
  • My first sale with Performance Aircraft was inked in four business days, for more than the listing price! The second, a Beechcraft King Air 300LW, was an impossible task—after five brokerage firms unsuccessfully tried, Performance Aircraft delivered! They understand the market, the people involved, and have so much integrity with both sides of the transaction. Theirs is a world wide reach, with an unbelievable staff. 
    – Tony Spears, Texas
  • I trusted the team at Performance Aircraft to help me identify an airplane that fit my mission, budget, and goals.  I'm happy to say that they exceeded all my expectations by keeping me informed throughout every step of the process.  You can trust that this team is not out to sell you an airplane but to be a lifelong aviation partner.  I would definitely use them again for selling or buying an aircraft.  Thank you!
    – Eric Leatherman, Nebraska
  • As a first time buyer, I was nervous about the entire process–plane selection, negotiations, paperwork, and closing. After my first contact with Stacey at Performance Aircraft, I knew they were the right fit to help me. She quickly made me feel at ease with everything. Their website is positively the best and most comprehensive in its class.  The process was smooth and the plane was exactly as it was represented. I couldn't be happier!

    – Matt Young, Wyoming
  • Your communication here is very good and I really appreciated your honesty. Your follow up is awesome. Bill knew the value of airplanes as well as anyone I have met in the industry and I have been flying for over 30 years. You guys did a great job communicating with me throughout the process and kept the plane moving to closing. I was very pleased with everything.
    – Randy Christo, Nebraska
