JetNet Watches Slow But Steady Industry Recovery
Aviation market intelligence firm JetNet is celebrating “25 years of delivering professional aircraft research services” at Heli-Expo and offering a look at numbers from 2012 suggesting a “slow but steady recovery” for the helicopter industry.
The Utica, N.Y.-based firm’s staff of more than 40 research specialists makes real-time updates to what JetNet describes as “the most comprehensive database of its kind.” At the close of 2012, the company reported 28,287 helicopters in service, 18,911 turbines and 9,376 pistons. Of that total, it listed 1,730 helicopters actively offered for sale, or about 6.1 percent of the fleet. The firm currently tracks 134 separate helicopter models in 184 countries.
“At JetNet it’s all about reliable information and market intelligence,” said director of sales and marketing Paul Cardarelli. “Our staff solicits original information from sources directly associated with aircraft. The data they gather is reviewed and confirmed for accuracy and completeness. It’s then added to the JetNet database for instantaneous access by our clientele, a network of aviation professionals around the world.”
At its Heli-Expo booth (No. C1001) JetNet is offering a broad overview of its products, including the Evolution software suite that provides an intuitive and customizable graphical user interface. The suite allows subscribers to view charts, tables and selective information.
Also on display are examples of the company’s ancillary services, including JetNet CRM (customer relationship management), JetNet SPI (sales price index) for actual selling prices and JetNet iQ (intelligence quarterly) with its comprehensive business aviation forecasting service. o
