GAMA Lieferzahlen für 2008Annual GA shipments down for first time in five years

GAMA-Zahlen zeigen Rückgang<br /> On Tuesday, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) announced that 2008 year-end worldwide shipments of general aviation airplanes decreased for the first time in five years.

Speaking at GAMA’s Annual Industry Review and Market Outlook Briefing, GAMA Chairman, Mark Van Tine, president and CEO of Jeppesen, reported that despite a positive year for revenue attributed to order backlog, the industry is feeling a significant impact from the slowing worldwide economy.  “Many of GAMA’s member companies have been forced to reduce their work force as they manage backlogs to compensate for the weakness in orders.”

Industry billings in 2008 reached $24.8 billion, a 13.4 percent increase over 2007.  The positive billings numbers reflect the fulfillment of orders placed for turboprops and business jets during the strong economic years of 2006 and 2007. Conversely, 2008 year-end, worldwide shipments of general aviation airplanes showed a decline with a total of 3,969 units, a 7.1 percent decrease over the previous year’s total of 4,272 airplanes.  

The piston airplane segment was down 20.8 percent in 2008, with 2,119 units delivered as compared to 2,675 airplanes in 2007.  The turboprop segment experienced the strongest growth in 2008 with shipments up nearly 17 percent.  535 turboprops were shipped, up from 459 units in 2007.  Business jet shipments reached a new plateau in 2008 with a total of 1,315 airplanes, up 15.6 percent over the previous year’s figure of 1,138 airplanes.
