The general aviation sector has been in the doldrums for quite a while. Some blame this on increased FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations, much of which occurred after 9-11 to protect airports from potential terrorists; unfortunately, these increased security requirements and increased regulations have stifled the general aviation (GA) sector. The economic crashes of 2000 and 2008 didn’t help, although, in 2003, the economy was flying high thanks to Bush Tax Cuts and stimulus, then it hit a wall again and didn’t do well until the run-up just before the 2008 crash.
The GA sector has only slightly recovered since then but not back to its 2003 highs. When Obama was elected, he railed against Corporate Jets and Fat Cats, which hurt jet and new aircraft sales. Remember when Congress went after the Auto Makers for flying their corporate jets to Washington, DC, to beg for bailouts? Public sentiment against GA was at an all-time low.
All of this had hurt aircraft cleaners and jet detailers – it made it tough to make money, but it looks like things are changing, and the number of GA Aircraft is increasing. This new Trump Administration is pro-Aviation, unlike the Obama Administration. Cutting corporate taxes will also help GA and jet sales. It looks like clear skies ahead for those in the General Aviation services business.
