EBACE 2011: Jetcraft sees sales soar
U.S.-based Jetcraft’s sales this year are heading toward the company’s busiest ever as it nears its golden anniversary. Year-to-date, Jetcraft has sold 19 aircraft valued at $378 million; 60 percent of those sales were outside the U.S. Long-range jets are the dominant type sold, especially to key emerging markets in China, India, Russia and Africa, but the total also includes VVIP jets and helicopters. Pending deals through the end of the second quarter are expected to add another $200 million to the sales total for the year. Here at EBACE, Jetcraft has for the first time put aircraft on the static display–two Bombardier Challenger 604s.
Jetcraft also has offices in Basel, Dubai and Moscow, and offices or representatives in five U.S. cities.
