Customer Editorial

The aviation industry has always been resilient, flexible and eager to find new growth and rebound solutions thru better technology. No one needs to be reminded of the significant market and business downturns during the past four years that has tested the industries metal. However there are some signs of recovery in key segments. In fact, many feel we may be reaching a reset point; the point at which key positioning is required in order to take advantage of a market upturn.

2011 provided us with some favorable news. As measured by the number of flights, some segments of General Aviation continued in decline, the rate of decline has lessened, due, in part, to the stabilization of business jet traffic and healthier charter and shared services activity.
