Statistics reveal that deliveries have increased for turbine helicopters and propeller aircraft while business jet and piston helicopter shipments were flat in the first quarter of 2021, compared to the same period of 2020, which in its closing weeks saw the onset of the pandemic.

GAMA president and CEO Pete Bunce says: “The first quarter of 2021 shows progress for the industry. It is encouraging to see manufacturers begin to bounce back from the impacts of the pandemic. Although, we are not yet in the clear. The industry continues to face headwinds, especially with ongoing supply chain issues and pandemic related restrictions and constraints to global travel. It is important that we continue working with governments to assist in strengthening our supply chain, safely easing travel related restrictions and protecting our highly skilled workforce. Our outlook toward the future is exciting, particularly in light of our industry's commitment to, and focus upon, environmental sustainability, which continues to spur development of new aircraft, innovative technologies and the production, distribution and uptake of sustainable aviation fuel.”

Aircraft shipments for the first three months of 2021, when compared to the same period in 2020, saw piston deliveries increase 7.3 per cent with 235 units; turboprop aeroplane deliveries increase 18.3 per cent with 84 units; and business jet deliveries were flat with 113 units.

Civil-commercial turbine helicopter deliveries for the first three months of 2021, when compared to the same period in 2020, saw an increase of 8.2 per cent with 92 units while piston helicopter deliveries nearly matched first quarter 2020 with 36 units.
