The first nine months of 2023, when compared to the same period in 2022, show increased aircraft deliveries across all segments along with an increase in the overall value of the aircraft shipments.

"General aviation is the planet's aerospace technology incubator that drives safety and sustainability benefits to our transportation systems and economies. We are laser focused on safety, technology and sustainability initiatives to maintain and expand our industry's steadfast growth into the future. To achieve this, it is imperative that there is stability within our industry's regulatory bodies, and having a new permanent leader at the top of the FAA is a great start. It is also essential that Congress acts now to pass an FAA reauthorisation bill that provides the new administrator and agency with the necessary direction and tools to strengthen and enhance the aviation system," says president and CEO Pete Bunce.

GAMA has published its Third Quarter 2023 General Aviation Aircraft Shipment and Billing Report, which indicates that aircraft shipments through the third quarter of 2023, when compared to the same period in 2022, saw piston aircraft increase 11.9 per cent with 1,135 units, turboprops increase 14.6 per cent with 439 units and business jets increase two per cent with 455 units. The value of aircraft deliveries through the third quarter of 2023 was $14.5 billion, an increase of 2.5 per cent.

Helicopter shipments increased when compared to the third quarter of 2022; piston helicopter deliveries increased 15.3 per cent with 158 units, and turbine helicopter deliveries increased 6.3 per cent with 469 units.

The 2023 year-end shipment and billing report will be published on 21 February, 2024 during GAMA's State of the Industry press conference in Washington DC.
