Conklin & de Decker Software For Aircraft Comparisons


Conklin & de Decker is calling its latest rendition of the Aircraft Performance Comparator (version 2.5.0) “the most comprehensive and easy to use aircraft performance comparison tool available.” What that means to users, is a software program that now allows them to compare side-by-side or overlay and compare aircraft interiors and exteriors of 268 aircraft, supplemented with flight performance data reaped from each manufacturer’s own manuals. Prices for the software range from $450 for the piston database, up to $595 for the turboprop or helicopter database and $695 for the jets database. Newly added to the aircraft database are Citation XLS+, Grob SPn, Hawker 750, TBM 850, Eurocopter AS355NP, and Cessnas 172S, 182T, 206H, T182T, T206H models. Conklin & de Decker says it has added more performance criteria for the Citation Mustang, Citation Sovereign, Gulfstream G150, Piper Cheyenne series, Eurocopter EC225 and the Sikorsky S-92.
