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

GAMA President and CEO, Pete Bunce, commented: “Demand for general aviation aircraft remains hardy as our industry continues to strategically navigate ongoing challenges, which include issues with supply chain and workforce shortages within our industry and within global regulatory authorities. Deliveries are converging on, and in some cases surpassing, the levels we were experiencing prior to the pandemic, which is a testament to the strength of our industry and the importance and utility of general and business aviation. 

As we look to the future, we must focus attention on the need for training of the regulator workforce and leveraging of bi-lateral safety agreements between regulatory bodies to improve both certification and validation processes.  At the same time our industry will continue to foster the momentum we have created on addressing environmental issues, which includes advancing technology that improves efficiencies of aircraft and operations; supporting the production, distribution and uptake of SAF; and futher developing hydrogen, electric and hybrid propulsion -- all of which are important to meeting our business aviation commitment of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”

Aircraft shipments through the third quarter of 2022, when compared to the same period in 2021, saw piston airplane increase 8.8% with 1,012 units, turboprops increase 7.3% with 383 units, and business jet shipments increase 1.8% with 446 units. The value of airplane deliveries through the third quarter of 2022 was $14.1 billion, an increase of approximately 4.8%.
