Not every member state of ICAO has enacted legislation to comply with the
Stage 3 sunset, so these aircraft can continue to fly in those nations past
the year 2000.  Timing for hushkitting is highly dependent on the leadtimes
quoted by the hushkit provider, plus (and probably more significant)
availability and timing for your selected installation facility. Leasing is
a reasonable alternative to hushkitting or purchasing new planes,
particularly if the Lessor can help place your noisy planes in a country
where they are allowed to continue flying.
