Honey­well fore­casts 4,000-plus tur­bine de­liv­er­ies in four years

Pilot - - NOTES -

Honey­well’s an­nual Tur­bine-pow­ered Civil He­li­copter Pur­chase Out­look fore­casts that 4,000-4,200 new civil­ian he­li­copters will be de­liv­ered be­tween 2018 and 2022.

It pre­dicts that over the next twelve months he­li­copter fleet util­i­sa­tion will increase sig­nif­i­cantly in North Amer­ica and mod­estly in Europe and Latin Amer­ica.

‘Op­er­a­tors pur­chas­ing new air­craft are largely con­sid­er­ing fac­tors like brand ex­pe­ri­ence and per­for­mance when choos­ing make and model,’ Honey­well says. ‘The out­look shows sta­ble new pur­chase-plan rates for the next five years for North Amer­ica, Europe and Asia. Latin Amer­ica shows higher growth rates for the next five years, with lower rates in the Mid­dle East and Africa. In ad­di­tion to bet­ter global eco­nomic con­di­tions ex­pected in the com­ing years, po­ten­tial pos­i­tive im­pacts of US tax re­form on new he­li­copter de­mand and lower volatil­ity in oil- and gas-re­lated mar­kets have helped fleet man­agers con­firm what they told us last year.’
