Deliveries of turbine business aircraft in the first half of this year were up slightly, reflecting a stagnant U.S. economy. Total deliveries, which had jumped from 397 in the first half of 1999 to 502 in the same period last year, showed a smaller gain this year (14 percent vs 26 percent), with 572 deliveries in the first half. Part of the gain can be attributed to Piper’s re-entry into the turbine fold.

Troy Eaden learned to fly just three years ago, but these days you’ll find him in the front office of the first Raytheon Premier I to be delivered. He took possession of his new airplane in late June, bolstering a tradition of ownership that began with the new Bonanza A36 he bought right after qualifying as a pilot and continued when he traded the piston single for a Jaguar Edition King Air C90B.
