The general aviation industry has long been perceived. Some blame it on the increase in FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations, most of which occurred after 9-11, from potential terrorists to protect airports. Sector: The economic crashes of 2000 and 2008 helped, although the economy was booming in 2003 thanks to Bush's tax cuts and stimulus, it hit the wall again, and the crisis of 2008 really went well.
The NAS sector has recovered slightly since then, but is not returning to its 2003 highs. When Obama was elected, he ran against Corporate Jets and Corporate Fat Cats, which damaged aircraft sales and the sale of new aircraft. Remember when the congress went after Car Manufacturers to fly their corporate planes to Washington DC to ask for help? The public's attitude towards the National Academy of Sciences was at a low level.
All this damaged aircraft cleaning equipment and aircraft parts. It was hard to make money, but things seem to be changing and the number of GA planes is increasing. This new Trump administration is anti-air, unlike the Obama administration. Corporate tax cuts will also help sell GA and aircraft. It looks like a clear sky for the general aviation services business.
There was a great article at AIN entitled Aircraft International News – December Edition; "The UBS Bizjet Index sees a post-election roll," Chad Trautvetter posted on December 12, 2016, which stated the following: In the US, the new Trump administration is widely seen as positive, with 61 percent of respondents expecting the end of the US presidential election to be positive for the business jet market, while 11 percent don't see it as positive. and 28 percent – uncertain.
In fact, the article notes that last year saw a 44-49% increase in private aircraft. Many of these planes will be delivered by 2018, and the retrograde will increase sales of used aircraft and current new inventory. More planes, of course, mean more planes to clean, and more new planes also mean more corporate data for customers. Meanwhile, with the fractured aircraft market, we are seeing an increase in aircraft taxi services, as well as Uber-style airfare plans that can be bought by smaller companies. All this means that the field of GA is ready to go out again and this is beneficial for business.
