New research reveals dominance of the US business aviation market
- The US business aviation market contains 23,582 – 50% of the world’s total
- 2,774 business aircraft delivered to the USA between 2010 and 2014 – 47% of the global total
- USA dominance of the mid to large size jets is even stronger – it accounts for 52% of the global fleet
Las Vegas, 18th November 2015 – Our new research reveals that between 2010 and 2014, 2,774 business aircraft were delivered to the USA. This equated to 47% of the global total, with 5,849 business aircraft delivered worldwide during this period. Overall, more than half (52%) of the global medium to large private aircraft fleet is based in the US.
Tom Connelly, President and CEO, of our US businesses, commented: “The US business aviation market is by far the biggest in the world, and very dynamic. It consists of over 23,500 aircraft, and we estimate that between 2010 and 2014, as many 46 business aircraft were being delivered every month, partly fuelled by market innovations such as our client Wheels Up. This growth provides us with a wonderful opportunity to gain further market share; building on our existing managed fleet of 95 aircraft and driving our maintenance service business”.
Dennis Richey, Executive Vice President, Engineering, states, “We have quickly built a number of strategically sited facilities offering line maintenance and AOG services to accommodate the market demand. Naturally, we have been targeting areas that have the largest concentration of business jets including the northeastern states, Texas, Florida and California, ensuring that we have the support facilities in place for private owners and commercial fleets. In simple terms, we offer the scale, breadth, and depth that the market demands.”
This is no better illustrated than within our mobile services team. The team respond to around 2,500 call-outs every year and have flown over one million miles and driven over 500,000 to support their clients.
Tom continues: “We have created an excellent platform; building the scale, breadth and depth required by our clients. They want to deal with one trusted brand wherever they are in the US or indeed the world, and our aim is to make sure we deliver.”
Our brand has been operating in America since 2008 and offers a range of services from private and fleet management support and charter sales, to maintenance, parts, and AOG support. Its management enjoys some 25+ years of experience in a variety of aviation disciplines.
