Conklin & de Decker Release 2017 Aircraft Performance Comparator

Conklin & de Decker announces the release of its 2017 Aircraft Performance Comparator with the most comprehensive aircraft comparison data available to the industry. Part of a family of innovative software products created by Conklin & de Decker, the Aircraft Performance Comparator is a must-have tool for anyone who is acquiring a business jet, turboprop, piston aircraft or helicopter and needs to compare aircraft performance data, quickly and easily.

Designed for aircraft buyers, dealers and brokers, the newly updated program allow users to easily overlay, or compare side-by-side, aircraft interiors and exteriors and evaluate the critical performance data points that are collected directly from the manufacturer’s approved flight and performance manuals. Range versus payload, baggage area sizes, and critical performance details are all quickly accessible. Users make apples-to-apples comparisons from the extensive database of over 300 aircraft that are displayed on the same scale, for a quick and easy evaluation.
