General Aviation Manufacturers Association 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.

GAMA President & CEO, Pete Bunce, commented: “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. 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 airplanes increase 9.4% with 638 units, turboprops increase 11.8% with 247 units, and business jets increase 9.5% with 289 units. The value of airplane deliveries through the second quarter of 2022 was $9.1 billion, an increase of 5.2%.
