“In entry-level jet markets, the markets are pretty stable when focusing on early serial numbers, trends are still on the down for higher serial numbers.” said Mathieu Pezin, Boutsen Aviation. “There might be a few exceptions here and there, but as a general idea buyers are now buying a price and manufacturers still need to make their numbers. So, virtually all markets are continuing to be pressured down, especially on the high-operating cost aircraft from long range or large cabins to super light and mid-size jets,”
