5.0 out of 5 stars My review
An essential must-have compendium for all those interested in aviation fleet planning. An highly recommended reading also for those working or having an interest in the wider transport industry, as the underlying financial, economical and operational concepts are easily transferable to other sectors of the passenger and freight transport industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars My review, 4 Dec 2010
This review is from: Buying the Big Jets: Fleet Planning for Airlines (Paperback)
An essential must-have compendium for all those interested in aviation fleet planning. An highly recommended reading also for those working or having an interest in the wider transport industry, as the underlying financial, economical and operational concepts are easily transferable to other sectors of the passenger and freight transport industry.
The author managed to make this book an appealing reading for all level of professional experience, thanks to his ability to write plainly, and combining theory with personal experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars The right book for the right topic, 16 July 2009

This review is from: Buying the Big Jets: Fleet Planning for Airlines (Paperback)
Paul Clark hit the nail with this publication. A long waited publication and a topic difficult to explore somewhere else. This second edition goes deeper and broader in subjects than the former edition. With a down-to-earth approach the book goes through the entire process of fleet planning in an objective but full of alternatives manner. Mr. Clark is right in his opinion that Fleet planning is not a foolproof activity but rather an empiric particular process for every airline. The book brings some order and method to the Fleet Planning activities and it is a valuable tool for the student as well as the practicer. From aircraft performance, airline economics, to operational constraints, to name but a few, this books covers most if not all topics in this area. Of especial interest to the reader, the Investment Appraisal is what finally determines the viability of aour plane. This can be defined like the right book, if not the only one, for the right topic.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buying the Big Jets: Fleet Planning for Airlines (Paperback)
I was looking for a book which broadly explained why the major airlines choose specific aircraft families. While the book provides a general poverview, few airlines and aircraft types are refered to. Most times its Aircraft A over Aircraft type B, analysisi but it doesnt give specifics of say the performance of the 737-800 over the A321 for example, Very few airline purchases are analysed, which would have allowed the reader to gain an insight into what specifically motivated key airlines to choosing their equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do I buy an aeroplane ?, 25 Mar 2010
By 
This review is from: Buying the Big Jets: Fleet Planning for Airlines (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book that discussed aircraft procurement from an analytical standpoint. It allows readers to understanding the decision process that drive aircraft procurement. What size of aircraft should I buy ? How many do I need ? How does this fit in with my planned schedule ? How can I optimise the allocation of aircraft ? How do I do a technical evaluation ?

The book contains many diagrams that illustrate the concepts (for example: waves of departure from a hub) and is written in an easy to understand style.

My business is aerospace as opposed to Airline Operation and procurement and this book gave me a rich insight into aicraft procurement.

I have seen no other book like it. Read it together with Stephen Shaw's "Airline Marketing and Management" which together form a great basis for understanding the airline industry.
