This represents an increase of 80% over the 4,556 aircraft produced between 1992 and 2001. </p> <p>The Connecticut-based company concedes that the business jet market is experiencing a downturn after enjoying a boom since the mid-1990s. &quot;Fragile economic conditions and declining corporate profits are taking their toll on the business jet market, as well as high fuel prices, limits on airport access and local noise regulations,&quot; says Forecast International. </p> <p>As a result, annual production is expected to decline this year and next with around 730 business jets produced annually. A recovery should then begin, with annual production in 2006 expected to increase tohttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Fractionals-key-to-market-growth-153304/
  • Rejigged European Flexjet scheme launched

    News | 19 Feb 2002 00:00

    <p>Bombardier launched its restructured European Flexjet fractional ownership programme earlier this month, with the scheme moving from operating a dedicated, wholly owned fleet to selling time through third-party charter operators.</p> <p>The manufacturer restructured its European Flexjet operation following a slow response to the traditional fractional model in Europe (<I>Flight International</I>, 29 January - 4 February). Bombardier's European operation now comprises two programmes - Jet Membership and Flexjet Charter. Jet Membership features two levels of participation: Premi&egrave;re, for higher-use customers flying to multiple destinations, and Same Day Business for shuttle-style operations between two destinations. A Premi&egrave;re customer would pay €4,700/h ($4,090/h) for a Bombardier Learjet 31A compared with €3,750/h for Same Day Business. Flexjet will also provide pure charter services. </p> <p>The programme will use a fleet of Bombardier Learjet 31As, 45s, 60s and Chhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Rejigged-European-Flexjet-scheme-launched-143296/

  • Slowdown signs for US shipments

    News | 07 May 2001 23:00

    <p>Aircraft shipments by US general aviation manufacturers showed the first signs of a slowdown in the first quarter, although total billings were boosted to a record $2.1 billion by an increase in business jet deliveries. </p> <p>According to figures from the US General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), shipments by member companies slipped 7.3% to 568 aircraft compared with last year's first quarter. Although business jet deliveries rose 7.4%, to 146 aircraft, shipments of turboprop- and piston- powered aircraft both fell, the latter by 13.3%, to 347 aircraft. Cessna shipped 27 fewer piston aircraft in the first quarter, New Piper 20 and Raytheon 12. </p> <p>New Piper's piston output dropped because it has halted production of the Malibu Mirage in favour of the single-turboprop Meridian. Although 25 Meridians were delivered in the first quarter, turboprop shipments fell 2.6%, to 85 aircraft. Raytheon delivered almost 50% fewer King Airs and Beech 1900Ds compared with the shttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Slowdown-signs-for-US-shipments-129838/
