Gulfstream overtakes Bombardier as world’s top business jet maker by shipment value

A surge in business aircraft shipments helped Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. to overtake Bombardier as the world’s leading business jet manufacturer in terms of value in the second quarter, according to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.

The U.S.-based manufacturer shipped 36 aircraft worth $1.83-billion (U.S.) in the quarter, compared to 45 planes valued at $1.59-billion for Bombardier. The value of Gulfstream’s shipments doubled from a year earlier when it delivered 21 aircraft. Bombardier shipped one less aircraft this year but the value of planes delivered increased by $274-million or nearly 18 per cent.
