New aircraft deliveries continue to increase
Deliveries have been increasing across nearly all aircraft segments for the period 2Q22 over 2Q21, along with an increase in the overall value of the aircraft shipments.

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has published the Second Quarter 2022 General Aviation Aircraft Shipment and Billing Report. The aircraft manufacturing industry's results for the first six months of 2022, when compared to the same period in 2021, point to increasing deliveries across nearly all aircraft segments along with an increase in the overall value of the aircraft shipments.

“Demand for general aviation aircraft continues at a robust pace. Since the initial setbacks of the pandemic, we have seen some segments make strides with growing backlogs and high rates of operations while others are still diligently working to navigate the path to recovery,” says president and CEO Pete Bunce. “Despite ongoing supply chain and workforce issues, our industry continues to make progress and strategically posture for the future, which is a true testament to our strength and durability.”

Aircraft shipments through the second quarter of 2022, when compared to the same period in 2021, saw piston aircraft increase 9.4 per cent with 638 units, turboprops increase 11.8 per cent with 247 units and business jets increase 9.5 per cent with 289 units. The value of aircraft deliveries through the second quarter of 2022 was $9.1 billion, an increase of 5.2 per cent.

Helicopter shipments were steady when compared to the second quarter of 2021; piston helicopter deliveries increased 4.8 per cent with 87 units and turbine helicopter deliveries decreased 0.8 per cent with 257 units.
