Conklin & de Decker Offers NBAA 2013 Attendees Special Show Discounts & Drawing for Tablets

NBAA 2013 – Las Vegas, Nevada -- Conklin & de Decker has announced they will offer National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) 2013 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition attendees a special 10% discount on their most popular data products during the three-day convention from October 22nd through October 24th, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. NBAA attendees are invited to stop by the Conklin & de Decker booth (#N5314) to see live demonstrations of their products and enter to win a new iPad or Google tablet.

The four databases available at a special 10% show discount include the Aircraft Cost Evaluator, the Life Cycle Cost, the Aircraft Performance Comparator and the 2013 State Tax Guide for General Aviation.

The Aircraft Cost Evaluator (ACE) is the ideal benchmarking tool that assists aircraft owners, operators, brokers and dealers with important side-by-side operating cost and performance comparisons.  ACE helps users make critical decisions on aircraft acquisitions, whether they are downsizing to a smaller asset or making a larger aircraft purchase or trade. The most extensive operating cost database, ACE is referred to as the industry standard and is currently used by AMSTAT, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Jet Traveler, Twin & Turbine, Executive & VIP Jets and World Aircraft Sales.  

ACE subscribers also receive access to the new ACE - On the Go!™  tool at no additional cost. This new web interface allows subscribers to access information via any browser, including mobile devices.  Using ACE – On the Go! allows access to cost information anytime, anywhere, without downloading and installing any software first. 

Life Cycle Cost (LCC) puts all aspects of owning and operating an aircraft into one easy-to-use program.  Aircraft acquisition costs, operating costs, taxes, final residual values and even revenues, if the user is in commercial operations, are all included in this business aviation budgeting tool. Life Cycle Cost is extremely important when determining whether to retain or replace aircraft, acquire new or used aircraft, and in evaluating the total economics of competing aircraft whether purchasing, financing, or leasing.  This software predicts cash flows, Net Present Values and has a 12-month budget as well as a residual value analysis calculation.

The Aircraft Performance Comparator (APC) is the most comprehensive aircraft comparison tool available to the industry today. Part of a family of innovative software products created by Conklin & de Decker, the Aircraft Performance Comparator is a vital tool for anyone that is acquiring a Business Jet, Turboprop, Helicopter, or Piston airplane, or needs to compare impartial aircraft performance data quickly and easily.  

AircraftPedia™ is Conklin & de Decker’s newest online reference collection that is now available at no additional cost to Aircraft Cost Evaluator, Life Cycle Cost, and Aircraft Performance Comparator subscribers. These subscribers now have free access to over 2,800 aircraft drawings and historical biographies on various aircraft models. The drawings can easily be exported into presentations or proposals and the historical information is a great reference tool for any aviation professional.

The 2013 State Tax Guide for General Aviation is the best source for timely and accurate US State tax information and is available 24/7. This Windows application is a must-have reference tool for aircraft operators, accountants, dealers, brokers, aviation law professionals, and others who deal with State Taxes. The State Tax Guide contains the latest taxes and fees imposed on general aviation in all fifty states. It addresses sales and use taxes applicable to aircraft sales, ownership, leases, parts, and labor. Aircraft operators stay informed of tax changes and critical general aviation state tax changes as they happen with downloadable updates from the Conklin & de Decker website.
