Business aircraft flying activity in the U.S. fell 2.2 percent in December, compared with the same month a year ago, according to data from aviation services company Argus. While Part 91 (corporate) flying increased 2.1 percent compared with December 2010, fractional and charter flights declined 3.6 and 8.4 percent respectively. Flights of large-cabin jets were down 6.3 percent, followed by turboprops (down 2.4 percent) and midsize jets (down 2.3 percent). Light jets eked out a 0.6 percent rise in flying activity. The data reflects “serial-number-specific aircraft arrival and departure information on all IFR flights in the U.S.”

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
