Small jet manufacturers are planning to invest heavily in their platforms and increase the size of current aircraft.
Superjet International VP business development John Buckley revealed plans at the ISTAT Americas 2013 conference in Orlando in March to stretch the 100-seat Sukhoi SuperJet to 120-130 seats. “As we move forward, we will be stretching the aircraft to 120-130 seats and begin to have a family of aircraft,” he said.
Increased new aircraft production, the emergence of aircraft age restrictions in many countries, engine OEM support, and limited financing are major barriers to remarketing used aircraft according to an expert panel speaking at the ISTAT Americas 2013 conference in Orlando.
