Washington, DC:

GAMA releases 'mixed' Q1 2024 Shipment and Billing Report, but industry remains solid

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) published the First Quarter 2024 General Aviation Aircraft Shipment and Billing Report on Wednesday (29th May).

The results for the first three months of 2024 when compared to the same period in 2023, show deliveries were flat for piston airplanes and piston helicopters, decreased for turboprops and turbine helicopters, and increased for business jets. Total aircraft billings were up 3.2% at $4.7bn.

“While the first three months of the year produced a mixed report, the health of the industry remains solid with robust order backlogs strong across all segments," said Pete Bunce, GAMA President and CEO.

"Our industry continues to be challenged by significant supply chain issues across the board that range from raw materials, through forgings and castings, to basic parts availability. These challenges are most acute in our engine sector. Workforce availability is yet another area that is constraining production.

"However, we are encouraged to see deliveries of business jets continue to increase and remain optimistic that this trend will include other aircraft segments as the year progresses. It is also encouraging for the industry to have a long-term reauthorization of the FAA passed into law and the new leadership atop both the FAA and EASA working to strengthen the effectiveness of their bilateral relations and work. These factors will help the industry move forward with new and enhanced technologies, products and innovations.”

Detroit Airport set to soar with Avflight partnership and major revitalization efforts

Avflight, along with the City of Detroit, announces the first significant initiative in 50 years to rejuvenate Coleman A. Young International Airport (KDET), marking a new chapter in Detroit’s aviation history.

Last year, the city received FAA approval to institute a 20-year airport development and strategy design plan, enabling the airport to apply for federal funding to subsidize infrastructure upgrades. Now, as an integral component of the rejuvenation effort, the city offered Avflight a 30 year-leasehold, the first such long-term lease in the airport’s history.

The long-term lease not only reflects the city’s confidence in Avflight as the airport’s sole FBO, but also allows the company a path forward to significantly invest in the property.

Detroit Airport set to soar with Avflight partnership and major revitalization efforts

Beginning this summer, Avflight will construct a modern terminal measuring - at a minimum - 3,000 square feet, along with a 15,000-square-foot heated hangar next to the existing terminal.

The structures will greatly enhance the airport’s amenities, services and security, making KDET an enticing option for transient visitors, airport tenants, charter operators and more.

Competitive advantage: Private Aviation’s impact on sports travel

Kyle Patel

By Kyle Patel, Founder and CEO of BitLux.

Bitlux President, Kyle Patel, shares his views and explains why private aviation's global impact on sports travel is significant.

Private aviation has become increasingly popular for sports travel, offering several advantages over commercial air travel. The list of sports stars and teams choosing private jets has grown considerably since the pandemic.

Convenience and flexibility are key, but there are also some surprising benefits. In the eyes of Kyle Patel, President of global private aviation company Bitlux, none is as important as allowing teams enhanced performance and recovery.

Competitive advantage: Private Aviation’s impact on sports travel

"Private jets allow sports teams to travel directly to their destinations, avoiding crowded airports and lengthy security checks. Smaller local airports can be used that are not available to commercial airlines, making travel hassle-free. This can significantly reduce travel time and fatigue, which is crucial for athletes to maintain their peak performance and ensure timely recovery between matches or competitions.”

Customizable comfort and amenities are also coveted factors for professional teams opting to fly private. Private jets feature spacious cabins, private bathrooms, and a quiet environment conducive to rest and relaxation, physically and psychologically.

The evolution of the cockpit

The cockpit is the control room of an aircraft - everything that happens on a flight is managed from this centre of operations. Artemis Aerospace investigates how cockpit design has changed over the years.

The evolution of the cockpit

We’ve all seen photos of an aircraft cockpit – a bewildering array of lights, switches, panels, buttons, levers and monitors. Cockpit technology has evolved hugely over the years and pilots need regular simulator training to ensure they’re on top of all the changes.

But how have cockpits developed and what changes have been made over the years?

To start with, why is it called a cockpit? Originally the word meant a pit in which cockfighting took place in the 16th century. In 1609 a small ‘theatre’ in the round was set up in Drury Lane in London for cockfighting events; this became known as the Cockpit Theatre and subsequently went on host world-class drama and become a major cultural centre in Tudor England.

Collaboration, innovation, sustainable technologies and emission-free flight dominated the opening keynote session at the 2024 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2024).

In his welcome remarks, NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen underscored the importance of bringing industry leaders together.

“EBACE is the place to be to talk about the big issues and challenges and opportunities that our industry has,” Bolen said. “As we bring every segment of the community together from all over the world, we’re going to have an opportunity to help shape the future of flight.”

Bolen then introduced EBAA’s new Secretary-General, Holger Krahmer, who began his new leadership position five months ago after a decade of serving in European Parliament.

“Safeguarding a competitive and fair European single market for business aviation operators is essential,” Krahmer said. “There is hope for a more business friendly environment, but we must remain vigilant. Our role in business aviation is more crucial than ever before.”

Krahmer also took a moment to highlight EBAA’s new membership in the industry’s CLIMBING. FAST. advocacy campaign, which is aimed at showcasing business aviation’s commitment to economic opportunity, sustainability and innovation, as well as achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. “At EBACE, we’re spearheading a surge of aviation and carbon-free flight.”

TITAN Aviation Fuels recognizes the importance of sustainability for European operators, owners and customers, and is committed to supporting the industry’s ambitious plans to manage and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. TITAN encourages clients to uplift SAF, provides blends where available and offers carbon offset options when it is not. The latest addition to its European network strengthens this offering.

“We are seeing more demand for sustainable aviation fuel from our customers, but supply remains a challenge in Europe, making it difficult to source," says CEO, Daniel Coetzer. "The limited supply and demand also affect price. However, we have recently increased our supply in Spain and continue to seek out new SAF suppliers. For customers that are unable to source the fuel we provide our own carbon offset program, which customers can subscribe to.”

ForeFlight to collaborate with Breakthrough Energy on contrail avoidance

Luxaviation has committed to join as a participant in the use of Breakthrough’s innovative API that could aid flight planners and pilots in reducing contrail-induced emissions, furthering ForeFlight’s commitment to enhancing pilots’ informed decision-making.

ForeFlight, a Boeing company, has announced a collaboration with Breakthrough Energy (BE), a global climate and clean energy group, at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE).

This joint effort aims to equip business aviation operators like Luxaviation with advanced tools to avoid contrails and thereby reduce their environmental impact.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently published a report that concluded contrails account for about 35% of aviation’s global warming impact. Contrails form behind aircraft when hot, humid exhaust mixes with colder air at high altitudes, causing water vapor to condense and freeze into ice crystals.

ForeFlight is working with BE to explore how its software tools - which analyze weather forecasts, satellite imagery and other data to model and detect contrails - can help business aviation operators lessen their environmental impact.

EBAA celebrates landmark victory in Polish Supreme Court PNR case

The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) has announced a significant legal victory in Poland, marking a historic precedent for the Passenger Name Record (PNR) issue in the country.

On Thursday (23rd May), the Supreme Administrative Court of Poland issued a landmark ruling, the first of its kind, which opens the path for all affected parties to pursue their claims regarding PNR regulations.

This groundbreaking case, the first PNR case ever heard in Poland, sets a precedent that will shape future jurisprudence in the country.

The case was brought forward by an air carrier in the business aviation sector, which was administratively fined by the Border Guard for allegedly violating the PNR Law. However, the Supreme Administrative Court reversed the judgment of the lower court and annulled the decision imposing the fine.

The Court’s decision underscores that penalties imposed on air carriers cannot be automatically applied and highlights the need for legislative changes to harmonize national laws with European principles.

This ruling is the first final judgment by a Polish court on this matter and is expected to influence subsequent cases significantly.

AGlaze paint sealant relaunches with ISO 9001 Certification, ready for airline use

Gryphon Aviation Partners appointed as Global Marketing Partner.

As the aviation industry embraces greener practices, AGlaze International, a leading British innovator in paint sealant technology, is excited to reintroduce its enhanced formula to the commercial airline market.

This relaunch follows the award of ISO 9001 certification, compliance with Airbus and Boeing standards, approvals from several business aircraft manufacturers and the exclusive engagement of Gryphon Aviation Partners (UK) Ltd. as its global marketing agency.

GainJet B757 sporting the AGlaze paint sealant protection and brilliance.

GainJet B757 sporting the AGlaze paint sealant protection and brilliance.

AGlaze's advanced sealant forms a flexible, durable barrier that fills microscopic irregularities in painted surfaces. This results in a glossy, drag-reducing finish that protects against UV damage and facilitates easy removal of grime and pollutants.

Mike Cappuccitti, a veteran aviation professional with a rich background at BAE, Alan Mann Aviation, and Bombardier, leads Gryphon’s worldwide network of sales associates. The network spans the USA, Brazil, UK, Nigeria, Uganda, Dubai, Bangalore, and Kuala Lumpur, with further plans for expansion into mainland Europe, Australasia, and the Far East.

United Airlines previously painted two aircraft within 18 days of each other, treating one with AGlaze and leaving the other untreated. Over eight months, the untreated aircraft's gloss diminished by 14%, while the treated one maintained its shine. "AGlaze consistently preserves an aircraft’s paint life, offering significant cost savings as a full aircraft paint job is a substantial investment," Mike Cappuccitti noted. "It also positively enhances an airline’s brand image, delivering a clean, glossy appearance that every airline desires."
