VREF Releases 2021 1st Quarter Aircraft Value Market Trend Report

VREF logo

VREF Aircraft Value Reference, Appraisal Services, the leading provider of aircraft appraisals, released their 1st Quarter 2021 Market Trend report today.

CHICAGO, IL, USA, June 1, 2021 / — Chicago, IL – June 1, 2021: VREF Aircraft Value Reference, Appraisal & Litigation Consulting Services, the leading provider of aircraft valuations and appraisals for the aviation industry, released their 1st Quarter 2021 Market Trend report today.

VREF’s subscribers generate over 16,000 complete valuation reports on a monthly basis. Based on the data collected, we have broken down the top valued aircraft based on aircraft type as well as where the activity is occurring. The piston fixed-wing market is up 15-35% from the previous 4th Quarter of 2020, and demand continues to outpace the low supply. The current supply is under 1% and in some cases under 0.1%.

The twin-engine piston market is also back in demand. This is mostly due to people seeking to avoid the airlines or their cars, but also from a new group of small and medium-size companies looking to establish an aircraft operation to assist with their business. Based on the number of reported closings, completed appraisals, and valuations from VREF Online, the interest is growing in the twin market. In fact, the Baron 55 broke the top 20 list of most valued models for the first time in 2021.
The business jet market has demonstrated that older aircraft with some refurbishments are still desirable assets for many first-time buyers. Smaller light to medium-size models has been selling much faster than the supply chain can handle. Excels, Phenoms, CJs (all variants), older Citations, Learjet 60 series, Learjet 40 series, Eclipses, BJ 400s, Citation Xs, Challenger 300s, and 600s are generating more interest than other models.

Another recent trend has been the substantial increase in single-engine turboprop activity and interest levels. From complex Jetprop conversions to brand new Piper M600s, there seem to be many accomplished pilots seeking more range and speed as post-COVID travel continues to grow. Single-engine turboprops are also benefiting from numerous high-performance piston owners trading up. The King Air 90s and 350s also continue to show enormous demand in the pre-owned market.
The peak of the 1st quarter was in April with well over 1400 more valuations completed than on average. Almost 65.5% of valuation activity was from single-engine piston markets.

Kenny Herold of Minnesota Discussed The Benefits of Small Barrel Whiskey Aging

Kenny Herold Minnesota

WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2021 / — Kenny Herold has had many years of experience restoring aging and historic old buildings and along the way, he developed an interest in fine whiskey, bourbon, and scotch. Even though Kenny Herold is from Minnesota, he enjoys many aspects of handcrafted and specialty whiskey from the creation process to trying new brands. He has learned a lot about the whiskey-making industry and the ways whiskey is created in special barrels. Here are some interesting observations Kenny Herold has made in his years observing the ins and outs of making and enjoying whiskey.

Kenny Herold Thinks Small Barrel Aging is Best

There are some reasons people use larger barrels to age whiskey like meeting large consumer demands, born in Minnesota, Kenny Herold believes there are many benefits to using a small barrel to age whiskey making it ideal, especially for small batches. Using a small barrel yields greater flavor and characteristics sought after by whiskey connoisseurs, it is believed. Other benefits from small barrel aging can be had according to fine spirits distillers and consumers. The color and flavor notes are affected by the barrel too. Small barrels have another quality where because of their size they are more porous and can release more water from the whiskey as it ages. This can increase alcohol content as well.

Greater Surface Area and Effect

Since the smaller barrels have more surface area, this tends to help the whiskey pick up flavors more readily than bigger barrels. More of the whiskey touches the barrel surface extracting flavors and desirable qualities. This can add richer flavor, but living in Minnesota Kenny Herold cautions on aging too long, especially with the range of temperatures during the seasons if done locally. Too much of a good thing can make the whiskey pick up other aspects of oak wood that are undesirable. Aging the small barrel whiskey the right amount of time is crucial to success.

Other Factors that Affect Aging

While Kenny Herold thinks aging whiskey in a small barrel is ideal, he does know there are other factors like the environment where the whiskey is stored, temperature and humidity, that all contribute to how it ages. Also, higher alcohol content affects how the whiskey ages in the small barrels. Higher alcohol content can extract more of the oak wood qualities which can create different whiskies.

During down-time in Minnesota when Kenny Herold is not restoring historic buildings, he is enjoying the many aspects of whiskey. The qualities of fine small barrel-aged whiskey are something Kenny knows about and loves to share with acquaintances and fellow whiskey connoisseurs.

Eagle Mount Billings Receives $25,000 Grant for New Adaptive Sports Equipment and Programming

A youth in a wheelchair was surprised with her own sports equipment

Local youth were surprised with their own adaptive sports equipment

Two Local Youth Also Surprised With Custom-Fit Sports Equipment

Without companies like The Hartford and partners like Move United, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.”

— Eagle Mount Billings Executive Director Rich Lutton

BILLINGS, MT, USA, June 1, 2021 / — Eagle Mount Billings, a non-profit organization based in Billings, Montana, committed to creating opportunities for youth and adults with physical disabilities through the power of adaptive sports, was recently awarded a grant from The Hartford as part of its Ability Equipped® program.

The grant will enable Eagle Mount Billings, a member of the Move United Network, to purchase a wide variety of adaptive sports equipment including a Duet Plus Wheelchair Bike, supportive equestrian gait belts, chest harnesses and a pulley system for their adaptive rock-climbing program, a sit water ski, and a wheelchair golf cart.

Last week, The Hartford also surprised two local youth athletes with their own custom-fit sports equipment. Both deserving athletes will receive a recumbent tricycle with adaptive pedals to secure their feet. These adaptive bikes will allow the youth to ride alongside their families and friends for years to come.

Arabelle Laddusaw, 11, is very active in Eagle Mount programs. This year, Laddusaw comes to every Eagle Mount program ready to face a new challenge and meet a new goal and has participated in adaptive climbing, skiing, and cycling programs this year.

Samaria Odom-Ness, 13, has been skiing with Eagle Mount Billings through the organization’s partnership with the school district. She has been described as “a beautiful soul” and is excited to embrace the independence that her new bike will grant her.

“In the last two years, Eagle Mount Billings has nearly doubled in size and impact. Because of this incredible growth, we found ourselves in need of more and more adaptive sports equipment to support our programs. This funding from The Hartford has been an incredible blessing which has allowed us to address some of those needs. Without companies like The Hartford and partners like Move United, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” said Executive Director Rich Lutton.

The Hartford has been an advocate for the adaptive sports movement and sponsor of athletes with disabilities for more than 25 years. As a leading provider of disability insurance, the company has a long-held belief that sports are an important part of physical rehabilitation following a disabling illness or injury. Created in 2019, The Hartford’s Ability Equipped® program makes adaptive sports more accessible through equipment donations, a digital fitness platform — Move United OnDemand — and The Hartford Competition Series.
