December business aircraft activity was down from November, but up from a year ago, according to an Argus International report.
Argus’ TraqPak report said total business aviation flights in December 2016 were down 5.7 percent from November. But compared with December 2015 they were up 1.4 percent.
The year-over-year gains were limited to jets, the report said: 2.3 percent for light jets, 0.8 percent for midsize jets and 7.2 percent for large jets. Turboprops were down 1.2 percent.
Argus’ analysis is based on all instrument flight rules flights in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
