Aircraft Shipments Up. Diamond Sparkles.


This report posted recently by AOPA shows some good news for GA in general and Diamond Aircraft happened to be highlighted in particular for their exceptional shipment increase performance globally.

GAMA data shows increases in pistons, jets

Worldwide aircraft sales continued to climb in the first quarter, according to data released May 1 by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.

Piston sales increased 21 percent compared to the first quarter of 2013, and business jet sales increased 19 percent, offsetting an 8-percent decline in turboprop sales. Total billings, a number GAMA reports based on a combination of manufacturer-provided data and estimates, increased 9 percent, and total aircraft shipments increased from 447 to 500.

The gains were not evenly spread, however: GAMA shows Diamond Aircraft of Austria logging a 76-percent increase in aircraft shipped (from 34 aircraft in the first quarter of 2013 to 60 in the first quarter of 2014), and an 84-percent increase in total billing, leading the category by a significant margin.
