Unless otherwise noted. (JPI) has been retained by Acme Leasing Corporation (the “Client”) to offer its opinion of the Fair Market Value and Future Fair Market Values of one 1985 manufactured Dassault Falcon 50 (the “Subject Aircraft”) detailed below: Manufacturer Model Serial Number Registration Date of Manufacture Engine Model Total Time (hours/cycles)1 Configuration Avions Marcel Dassault Falcon 50 XXX NXX February 30. 2006.

Hours and cycles are as of September 19. the airframe.

The aircraft has no outstanding Airworthiness Directives or maintenance requirements. The aircraft is clean. and maintained under the manufacturers recommended maintenance program using factory authorized maintenance facilities. JPI also makes two further assumptions regarding any possible transaction involving the Subject Aircraft: ! ! That if sold. For the purpose of this appraisal. All major modifications and/or repairs have been properly documented. The aircraft has no damage history. recent major airframe inspections or engine overhauls will add to the value of the aircraft. JPI does not consider the value of an attached lease stream or its tax consequences. That the aircraft is not subject to an existing lease. It is certificated and operated under the auspices of the Federal Aviation Administration or other major regulatory authority if not registered in the United States.! ! ! ! ! ! ! Its historical and/or expected level of utilization for the aircraft is typical for its make and model. For instance. JPI uses the following definition of Fair Market Value as defined by the American Society of Appraisers: 4 . not involved in a fleet sale which would tend to discount from the value shown. the aircraft will be sold as a single unit. Its three Garrett TFE-731 engines are enrolled in the Honeywell Maintenance Service Plan (MSP) or the Jet Support Services EMS engine program. JPI then uses the condition and maintenance data obtained from the inspection of the aircraft to adjust for the variance from that assumed status. VA L U E D E F I N I T IO N S For the purpose of this appraisal. In addition to the foregoing assumptions about the aircraft itself.

that may reasonably be expected for property in exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller with equity to both. 5 . An aircraft’s Future Fair Market Value is based on the long-term historical value trend of the aircraft and assumes the supply and demand equation to be in relative balance. as of a certain date.! Fair Market Value is the amount expressed in money. neither under any compulsion to buy or sell and both fully aware of all relevant facts.

A condition of the pending sale is that the engines of the Subject Aircraft are to be enrolled in the Honeywell MSP (Maintenance Service Plan).835 hours with 6. The Subject Aircraft is powered by the upgraded TFE-7313D-1C model. in the opinion of JPI. These issues are summarized below: ! Utilization.200-hour Core Zone Inspection and costs approximately $100. consequently the value of an aircraft with the “3D” engine modification is worth approximately $300. The Subject Aircraft was manufactured in February 1985 and as of the date of JPI’s inspection had 8.AIRCRAF T VA L U E JPI has inspected the Subject Aircraft and its records in order to gather independent information regarding its history. equipment. improved “hot and high” performance and improved engine reliability. and any other information considered germane to this appraisal.

Consequently with its utilization approximately 7% more than the fleet average.000 more than one with the original -3 engines. collectively have a material impact upon the value of the aircraft. the average is 394 hours per year. As will be detailed in the following section. These engines. which replace the original TFE731-31C engines. there are a number of issues which. among the 22 Falcon 50s known to be available for sale. in the opinion of JPI there is no material effect upon the value of the Subject Aircraft. a program in which an operator pays a fee for each hour of engine operation. provide increased thrust. This equates to an average utilization of approximately 421 hours per year with an average stage-length of 1 hour and 21 minutes duration. In comparison. Some brokers and dealers familiar with the Falcon 50 market suggest that the increased benefits offered by the modification enhance the value of the aircraft on a 1:1 basis. Engines.

! Maintenance Status. aircraft on OCIP have dedicated in-house maintenance personnel who can accomplish these block inspections every month. 7 . reducing the time and expense normally required. Consequently in the opinion of JPI. consequently enrollment in the program is inherent to its value. 319 and 222 hours remaining before the next Core Zone Inspection (CZI) on the left. Although the aircraft was manufactured in 1985. middle and right hand engines respectively. this engine and the two others will be “built to the MSP standard”. the history and high time status of the #1 engine should not necessarily be an issue affecting the value of the Subject Aircraft.following section. the aircraft will be enrolled in MSP and that the aircraft is scheduled to have this work done. Duncan Aviation. during the upcoming CZI. advises that after conclusion of the pending transaction. This engine has 10. deductions roughly equivalent to the “buy-in” cost should be made. In the case of the Subject Aircraft the engines have 85. of the 22 available Falcon 50s. OCIP is a progressive maintenance program designed primarily for low or high utilization operators used to avoid the extensive downtime of Falcon typical “A”. Assuming enrollment in the MSP program there will be no charge to operator for this work. where the aircraft has just completed a pre-purchase inspection. this high time engine was manufactured in 1979 and was first installed on Falcon 50 on an early production aircraft.884 hours total time. Although the age of this engine might be worrisome to some. The Subject Aircraft is currently maintained under Falcon’s Optimized Continuous Inspection Program. Under this program. routine maintenance events. However. the downside of the program is that is a greater need for routine monthly maintenance requirements. Typically. “B” and “C” inspection sequences. An unusual aspect of the Subject Aircraft relates to the status of the #1 engine. significantly more hours than that of the airframe. including the “A” and “B” inspections.

In regard to its configuration. with a “wrap-around” couch in the aft cabin. the aircraft will undergo an “A” inspection and “A+” inspection (due every 150 and 300 hours respectively) in order to realign the aircraft’s inspection sequences. it was last painted by Duncan Aviation in 2004 and is considered by JPI to be a very handsome paint scheme. the major “C” inspection is still required. the “C” inspection was last performed in June 2004 (at 8. In addition. the aircraft is well suited for international travel equipped with dual Universal UNS-1K flight management systems. An important.000 to accomplish. The “C” inspection is an extensive inspection of the airframe and flight controls required every 6 years and has an estimated cost of $300. Duncan Aviation advises that as the new owner of the Subject Aircraft intends to fly the aircraft only 150 hours per year and does not have in-house maintenance personnel. due to market demands. dual HF radios and dual laser inertial reference systems. In the case of the Subject Aircraft. Cosmetics/Configuration. In addition to the Exit Block Inspection. In the case of the Subject Aircraft. subjective issue effecting all corporate aircraft is the cosmetic condition and configuration. ! Avionics. More importantly. However. Early aircraft were available only with a lavatory located in the foyer. The Subject Aircraft is equipped with a Collins EFIS 86C 5-tube EFIS system. an important issue for the Falcon 50 is the location of the lavatory.069 hours total time). upon conclusion of the transaction. the aircraft will be removed from OCIP with an “OCIP Exit Block Inspection” and will revert to the typical “A”. “B” and “C” inspections.Despite enrollment in the OCIP program. albeit. later production ! 8 .

Although its fuselage and cabin were roughly equivalent to that of the Falcon 20 (both have 700 square feet of cabin volume) the aircraft was designed as a three engined aircraft and consequently is often referred to as a “Baby 727".000 nautical miles. The aircraft was capable of distances in excess of 3. In response to this valued market niche. 159 aircraft were 20 .S.

Since 1966. Falcon manufactured 250 aircraft. aircraft intended for North American customers are manufactured in France and then delivered to Falcon Jet’s Little Rock. The key to the success of the Falcon 50 was its Garrett TFE731-3 turbofan engines. FAA certification for the aircraft occurred in March 1979 with first customer deliveries beginning four months later.
