March 15, 2013, 04:30 pm
According to recently released TraqPak statistics from aviation company Argus, the number of business aircraft flights decreased during February.
The numbers from February were a slight slip from the positive momentum that was experienced during January. Flight activity decreased 4.4 percent year-over-year during February, with charter aircraft flying being the only operational category to see gains.
Charter aircraft flying saw a gain of 5.5 percent from a year ago, which was the fifth straight month of increases. There were individual market gains of double digits from the Part 135 segment, while midsize and large cabin charter jet flying was up from last year by 15.1 percent and 11.9 percent, respectively.
Aircrafts are now employing new technology to optimize their flights. Boeing recently launched a new technology that improves operational efficiency by implementing information such as weather and turbulence data into the plane's systems.
With new technology being introduced almost monthly in the aviation industry, aviators should make sure they invest in pilot insurance to prepare for any unexpected dangers they may meet while navigating the skies.
