ARG/US: Flight Activity Data Shows Ray of Hope

http://www.ainonline.com/news/singl...data-shows-ray-of-hope/news/single-news-page/According to ARG/US TRAQPak data, business aircraft flight activity increased 28.55 percent last month over January, possibly indicating early signs of recovery. ARG/US’s data covers all turbine business aircraft on IFR flight plans in the U.S., including international flights departing from or arriving in the U.S. While stressing that this is not yet concrete proof of a recovery of flying activity, ARG/US vice president Shirley Mason told AIN, “We are very interested to see the trend over the coming months.

If month-over-month activity continues to increase, she said, then this would “show signs of a recovery. The specialized aviation-services firm estimates that flight activity has dropped an average of 1.81 percent per month over the last 12 months, with total flight activity declining 18.51 in that period.

Compared with February 2008, business jet and turboprop traffic fell 26.6 percent last month, though it is 23.98 percent when adjusted for the leap day last year. All segments saw year-over-year flight activity decline last month, with large-cabin aircraft taking the largest drop at 41.4 percent.

Turboprop activity decreased 19.9 percent year-over-year; light jets, down 28.4 percent; and midsize jets, down 24.1 percent. By operator type, Part 91 flying slipped 15.5 percent year-over-year; Part 135, down 46.7 percent; and Part 91K/fractional, down 28.1 percent.

Is there a ray of hope. The market is up. Houses are starting to sell. Even though at reduced prices. Maybe business and industry will stop listening to the gloom and doom of Obama, Pelosi, & Reid. Lets start burning kerosene again.

Now if we just get the media out the way, may be the recovery will be a little quicker. After all these companies doing what the did, to put us in this mess including the goverment, I think the next contributor to this crisis is the media. CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, FX NEWS and even freaking TELEMUNDO 47, please STOP with the reporting crap about the economy and scaring the general public.

Amen, I was telling someone that we need a good old natural diaster, to get the media off of the ecomony for five minutes.

Month-over-month is not as good a statistic as comparing a month to the month last year. And that is still down considerably.

I do agree that media coverage is not helping. Consumer confidence is at its lowest level ever. Of course, if you got back to the previous low, the Dow rose over 40% in the next twelve months. THAT'S the type of recovery we need.

I hate to say this but I've flown airline, charter, and corporate. January is always a slow month and usually picks up in February.

I heard someone on CNBC say that "THIS TIME ITS DIFFERENT".

That usually means we just hit bottom!

We can only go up.

The point about month to month sales was that it was an UNEXPECTED increase....when you lose 600k jobs a month everyone knows ytd will be worse, but again that part was expected. To lose, what was it....1.5 million jobs over the last 4 months AND have an increase month to month? That is good news anyway you look at it.

A 7% jump may not be justified, but it is no fluke, there has to be SOME real info for a jump like that.
