United States: the "Nbaa-Bace 2022" kicks off
Event dedicated to corporate aircraft: sector recovering faster than commercial one
The Business Aircraft Convention & Exhibition ("Nbaa-Bace") 2022, organized by the National Business Aviation Association (Nbaa), kicks off today, October 18, in the United States. The event will end on October 20. Among the exhibitors there will be manufacturers of private and corporate aircraft who will present their latest models, which are increasingly sustainable. In fact, one of the central themes of the aeronautical show is the reduction of harmful gas emissions to combat climate change.
The business aircraft market is quite fertile today. In 2021, air traffic operated by business aircraft recovered faster than commercial flight traffic. However, despite strong demand, some hesitation remains among some buyers, who prefer to wait for what will happen in the next year. Some constraints remain due to problems in the supply chain.
Suffice it to say that Honeywell Aerospace has planned to deliver up to 8,500 new corporate aircraft between 2023 and 2032, for a value of 274 billion dollars (+15% on 2021), while in 2022 the increase should be equal to + 9%. To tickle the wishes of customers, the Gulfstream Aerospace company (controlled by General Dynamics) will exhibit its latest luxury models: the G-800 and the G-700.
