2015 Private Jets for Sale2015- Private jets for sale
Following chart shows the turnover by manufacturers. Significant pattern disposals were the following: Boeing has been a leader for several years in the very large private conversion market for Airbus and Boeing. In this year 4 private aircrafts were sold on basis of the Boeing 787 (Dreamliner) - a long-range, large capacity and twin-engine nozzle airplane.
The first two of Honda Aviation's highly acclaimed HondaJet vehicles were supplied by Honda Aviation. Originally, the plane suffered several design lags, but obtained full approval in December 2015. Value of corporate jets sold reflected the value of the entities, with a combined volume of USD 21.9 billion in 2015, down 0.7% from USD 22.0 billion in 2014.
The North American aircraft segment is by far the biggest corporate jet aircraft segment with a share of almost 61%. The next is Europe, with a share of around 18% by 2015. There are 12,362 operating jets in the USA. Out of these 1,412 in all, 1,412 are personally, 7,578 are used for commercial purposes (FAR part 91), 2,524 are partly 135 charters and the remainder have a wide range of uses.
Further GAMA Statistical Annual GAMA features a number of highlights: Global deliveries of turbo-prop aircraft fell by 7.6% from 603 in 2014 to 557 in 2015. Global deliveries of reciprocating engined aircraft fell by 5.3% from 1,378 in 2014 to 1,265 in 2015. However, cyclical uncertainties and exchange rate volatility impacted volumes in Brazil, Europe and newly industrializing countries such as China.
The number of pilot activity is continuing to decrease, according to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). At the end of 2015 there were 590,038 powered sailors against 593,499 powered sailors at the end of 2014. In anecdotal terms, I have listened to some accounts of pilot numbers that are difficult to find and hire, and the numbers are beginning to confirm this.
Mean flight time of jets is 314 hrs per year (2014 figures). For the full 2015 General Aviation Statistical Databook, please visit the GAMA website.
