Podcast: Business Aviation Market Outlook 2022

Jan. 31, 2022

The COVID-19 environment in the second half of 2021 led to sharp increases in business aircraft sales and utilization, not only compared to 2020, but in many cases even over pre-pandemic levels. In this podcast, four respected industry analysts weigh in on if we can expect these trends to continue this year. Don Spieth, vice president of sales and analytics for General Aviation Services, says, “Although it’s a tough act to follow, to see the exact repeat of 2021, we do think that [aircraft] values are going to stabilize and that there’s probably some upside remaining.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Richard Aboulafia, managing director, AeroDynamic Advisory
  • Brian Foley, founder, Brian Foley Associates
  • Don Spieth, vice president, sales and analytics, General Aviation Services
