New Homebuilts Outpace Production Models in 2010


February 24, 2011 — This week, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) released its annual Statistical Databook, with the new edition covering the 2010 calendar year. Included in the comprehensive edition are factory-built aircraft shipment totals. The worldwide aircraft shipments included 2,015 total aircraft, including 889 piston-powered aircraft, 763 business jets, and 363 turboprops. Total shipments declined 11.4 percent because of the struggling economy.

Interestingly, homebuilt aircraft registrations continued their growth in the U.S. last year. A total of 941 homebuilt aircraft were added to the FAA registry in 2010, an increase of 10 percent from the previous year. There are now more than 32,000 homebuilt aircraft registered in the U.S.
