GAMA Releases Third-Quarter General Aviation Aircraft Shipment Report

Pistons And Bizjets Up, But Fewer Turboprops Sold Compared To Last Year

GAMA has released the 2014 third quarter general aviation aircraft shipment report. Total worldwide general aviation airplane shipments increased 5.7 percent to 1,678, and billings rose to $16.0 billion, up 4.0 percent.

Piston-engine airplane shipments increased 9.2 percent to 806 units in the first nine months of 2014, compared to 738 airplane shipments in the same period last year. Turboprop airplane shipments were down 3.7 percent to 412 units this year. Business jet shipments were up over last year, from 421 units to 460 units in 2014.

“The optimism about the general aviation market on display at NBAA’s convention last week is reflected in the continued recovery of the business jet and piston-engine segments this quarter,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said. “New products are helping to fuel our industry’s continued growth as we continue to emerge from the recession.
 
“Unfortunately, not every sector, as evidenced by turboprops, is showing sustained growth, and this is indicative of the industry challenges we still face,” Bunce continued. “Following the U.S. mid-term elections on November 4, we hope the U.S. Congress will use the remaining weeks in the session to move forward on renewing tax incentives—such as the research and development (R&D) tax credit and bonus depreciation—to help general aviation manufacturers continue to innovate, sell more airframes, and spur installation of safety-enhancing products to finish the year on a strong note.”

  2013 2014 CHANGE
Pistons 738 806 +9.2%
Turboprops 428 412 -3.7%
Business Jets 421 460  +9.3%
Total Shipments 1,587 1,678 +5.7%
Total Billings $15.4B  $16.0B +4.0%
