Based on customer feedback, we have introduced a new type of ‘usage’ to our database. The new usage is ‘Spares Use / Parts Reclamation’.
This usage will be applied to aircraft when those aircraft have been acquired by a company/military air arm purely for spares use (sometimes referred to as “non-fliers” or “donor” airframes).
This new usage will always be applied to aircraft that are in storage, and would typically be followed by a retirement event.
This new usage will initially only be applied on our business aviation, helicopter and military datasets, as well as military operated examples of types in our commercial dataset.
