Aviation Week expects the market for used aircraft to remain robust heading into the New Year despite high fuel prices and possible U.S. recession in the short-term prospects. Previous downturns in the U.S. economy have weakened the pre-owned market. Now the strong demand for bizjets outside of North America is expected to stimulate the market for the near term. Pre-owned top-end business jets prices are approaching all-time records. Long lead times for factory-new jets push operators in emerging markets to buy up almost all high-end bizjets for sale.
