Bombardier Aerospace: “We continue to closely monitor the indicators that impact the commercial aircraft market. As these indicators continue to improve, we believe that the market will continue to strengthen at a moderate pace. Deliveries decreased by 30% between calendar years 2009 and 2010, as OEMs reduced production rates to adjust to the lower demand. We believe that calendar year 2010 was the trough and that deliveries will now start to increase, at a moderate pace. We also believe that orders for new aircraft will increase in calendar year 2011 as compared to calendar years 2010 and 2009. While orders should improve in calendar year 2011, we expect to deliver approximately 90 commercial aircraft in the 11-month period ending December 31, 2011, compared to 97 commercial aircraft delivered in the 12-month period ended January 31, 2011,” Company statement.
