12:00 | New and Midlife (Overall) aircraft market dynamics from the engine market perspective

Technical issues in the market and what their downline value and industry effects are: New aircraft deliveries, from 787 through to A320Neo and 737Max are suffering from delays and AOG events due to problems with new technology – What is this in turn doing to mid-life aircraft values and lease extension prospects and what if oil prices rise? Can airlines withstand these problems, is this beneficial to lessors?  Are airlines becoming upset when aircraft on lease change hands through sale / sale through ABS etc?

13:00 | Lunch

14:05 | Power by the hour options, benefits and pitfalls

14:45 | Engine valuations and appraisals

With so many mid/late life ABS closings of late it is essential that clear understanding of engine asset valuations is sought and given at all times to investors. How do engine values evolve, what are the key drivers of valuations and what can impact an engine valuation both beneficially and detrimentally?

15:30 | Financing Engines / Engines as assets

Exploring key drivers for engine selection criteria, risk mitigation, technical Vs commercial risk. Also looking at OEM delays and the effect on the market and on engine choice and the impact this will have when the current fleet delivering and on order reaches mid-life. What will production of 60+ aircraft per month in the here and now do to values in 8-12 years’ time?

16:15 | Closing Debate: The future of Engine leasing

Where is engine leasing headed?

How does the intelligent engine benefit asset owners and managers? Are they able to see the full data from intelligent engines> We are at a crossroads with Airbus and Boeing stating that production might increase to a huge 70 aircraft each per month – What impact will that have? Many A330 and 777-300ER aircraft are coming onto the market – what is the effect for the mid-term? Will engine leasing have to evolve or are current engine lessors well positioned for market dominance. Will political and economic risks prevent assets entering some key markets in the mid-term?
