  • London City gets 800XP approval

    News | 13 Sep 2004 23:00

    <p>Raytheon has received steep approach certification for London City airport for the Hawker 800XP. The approval of the mid-size business jet is believed to have been driven by fractional-ownership operator NetJets, which earlier this month became the first company to gain approval to operate the 800XP from the airport in London's business district. The move allows NetJets to bolster its European fleet and widen its operational range. &quot;The Hawker will allow us fly customers direct to Beirut, Moscow, Tel Aviv as well as other destinations in Europe and North America&quot;, says NetJets chief operating officer David Marcus. NetJets operations at London City have centred to date on the Citation Bravo and Excel, and Dassault Falcon 50EX and customer demand for the airport has seen movements double over the past year. &quot;We expect to record up to 400 movements this year and are expecting a 30% increase in this total in 2005,&quot; he says.</p> <p>KATE SARSFIELD / LONDON </p> <p>&n

  • Slow growth

    <p>KATE SARSFIELD / LONDON. DATA COMPILED BY BUCHAIR UK</p> <p>There are more business aircraft flying compared to a year ago, but the rise in numbers is deceptive as order backlogs shrink and customer caution increases</p> <p>The world's business aircraft fleet continues to grow, increasing in the past 12 months by more than 2% to around 20,200 aircraft. Behind this increase, however, the market is slowing as manufacturers work off their shrinking order backlogs and customer caution, fuelled by economic uncertainly, threatens to hinder growth. </p> <p>According to the US General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), in the first half of this year deliveries of business jets fell by almost 10% from 396 aircraft to 357, while turboprop deliveries tumbled by almost half, from 204 units to 111. Manufacturers that had been hoping for a recovery in the second half of the year now expect a further decline in deliveries, followed by a flat 2003, with no recovery expected before 2004.<

    <p>KATE SARSFIELD / LONDON</p> <p>Downturn in production looks set to continue into next year, but more positive market outlook predicted by 2006</p> <p>Around 8,200 business jets valued at more than $135 billion will be produced between 2002 and 2011, according to aviation consultancy Forecast International. 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 to
