Aviation consultant company Conklin & de Decker have announce the release of a new version of their popular software database, Life Cycle Cost 2013, Volume I.
Life Cycle Cost is a total aircraft and financial management software program, and includes a database of over 400 aircraft.
An article from aviationpros.com claims that the new update includes at least twelve new aircraft, along with cost updates for fuel and maintenance for 2013.
It sounds like this version of Life Cycle Cost is more customizable than previously.
Aviation finance managers and operations managers will love this. After all, it can provide a 20-year outlook for fixed costs and variable costs, as well as year-long budget analysis. It gives the user a Net Present Value for the aircraft, allowing the operator to compare the NPV to other aircraft and more easily make determinations from the data.
