Business aircraft flight activity for Part 91 operators appears to have bottomed, according to data from Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US), while a similar recovery for Part 91K fractional and Part 135 charter operators appears not far behind. ARG/US’s TraqPak data shows business aircraft activity in August tracking “very closely” to July levels, though down slightly by 1 percent. Overall business aviation flight activity decreased 5.8 percent in August versus a year ago. However, ARG/US data showed that Part 91 flying increased by 0.3 percent year-over-year. Avantair again drove fractional turboprop activity up by 23.1 percent from a year ago, but fractional activity was off 14.2 percent overall. Part 135 flights fell year-over-year by 11.8 percent.
