Decline in revenue from new business aircraft in 2016
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) sale figures show that 2016 shipments were lower than in previous years. There were 661 new sets of aircraft in the 2016 global market in the 2016 edition of the Yearbook, up from 718 in 2015. Below are some of the key features and the sale by manufacturers. Following chart shows the turnover by manufacturers.
Significant pattern disposals were the following: Overall, total deliveries were at their lowest-level since 2004, when 592 vehicles were shipped. In 2016, Bombardier and Gulfstream recorded the largest declines in jet volume, with volumes returning to 2012 levels.
Noting that the greatest entity is falling, the high-quality commercial jet, the overall value of corporate jet aircraft purchases fell by 16% to 18.4 billion dollars in 2016, down from 21.9 billion dollars in 2015. The North American aircraft segment is by far the world' strongest corporate aircraft segment with a share of almost 62%.
8 percent of the 2016 marked. Our share of the remainder of the world declined in comparison with the previous year. Boeing has been a leader for several years in the very large private aircraft conversion segment for Airbus and Boeing. However, total turnover in 2016 was the slowest in over a decade. 1.2 billion euros in 2016.
After being launched in late 2015, Honda Aviation supplied 23 of its much discussed HondaJet. The GAMA reported that the overall number of operating corporate aircraft in the USA was 13,440. Out of these 1,537 in all, 1,537 are personally, 7,861 are used for commercial purposes (FAR part 91), 2,675 are partly 135 charters and the remainder have a wide range of uses.
Global deliveries of new turbo-prop aircraft rose by 3.4% from 557 in 2015 to 582 in 2016. Transaction costs for turbo-props were $1,705 million, representing an expected $3 million per aircraft transaction. Global deliveries of reciprocating engined aircraft fell by 9.7% from 1,265 in 2015 to 1,142 in 2016.
But the only ray of hope is that the number of drivers has risen by around 6,000 in the course of the year. Mean flight times of corporate aircraft were 285 flight hrs per year (2015 figures), but within this group the on-demand charters (FAR part 135) averaged 400 flighthrs. Also, on-demand charters of turbo-props averaged 400 hrs each, while the total use of all turbo-props averaged 261 hrs.
For the second consecutive year, the number of aeroplanes in fractionated fleet rose to 882, up from 837 in 2015. Full General Aviation Statistical Databook for 2016 is available on the GAMA website.
