Expect three years of modest growth followed by slightly higher gains extending into the next decade. That’s the forecast coming from Honeywell Aerospace, which released its 21st Annual Business Aviation Forecast on Oct. 28, just prior to the opening of NBAA2012. The forecast also predicts that nearly 10,000 new business jets, valued at about $250 billion, will be delivered between 2012 and 2022. Honeywell officially labeled 2011 as the trough of the downturn, which began in 2009, and predicts a 9 percent gain in deliveries in 2012 over last year. .

FAA Proposes Tougher Noise Rules for Future Helicopters
The FAA has unveiled plans to require newly designed helicopters to be quieter than existing rotorcraft, a move it says would benefit the public while promoting consistency with international standards. Although the FAA insists that existing helicopters, classified as either Stage 1 or Stage 2 aircraft, will not be affected by the rule, the Helicopter Association International has indicated that stronger language should be included in the plans, clarifying that existing helicopters are exempt. Read more about the proposed rule.

FEATURED STORY

Huerta: Part 23 Changes May Cut Certification Costs
FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta said earlier this month he expects the joint industry-FAA committee reforming FAR Part 23 to recommend a better rulemaking approach that will allow more design innovation and cut certification costs for new light aircraft. Committee participants include Eli Cotti, NBAA's director, technical operations, and Greg Bowles, committee co-chair and director, manufacturing and engineering for the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. "More aircraft design innovation and technology implementation in a more efficient manner is what it's about," said Cotti. "Those of us serving on this FAR Part 23 reform committee believe the changes will benefit everyone concerned: manufacturers, buyers, pilots and the thousands of companies that depend on light aircraft to serve their customers and keep their companies profitable." Read more about the committee's work.

EU-ETS Update Will Be Provided at NBAA2012
"EU-ETS: Compliance in 2013 and Beyond" will be one of the featured sessions at NBAA2012 this week. Although operators have spent the past two years preparing for full EU-ETS implementation, Adam Hartley, supervisor of regulatory services at Universal Weather & Aviation, said the "rubber is about to hit the road" in 2013 when the trading scheme actually begins operation. EU-ETS has sparked outrage among countries outside of the European Union – especially since the amount of carbon emissions used to calculate the credits needed by an operator is determined from the flight's point of origin rather than from its point of entry into EU airspace. Both the U.S. House and Senate have passed measures prohibiting American operators from participating in EU-ETS. Read more about the EU-ETS session at NBAA2012.
