Meggitt: "The outlook for our civil markets remains mixed. Civil OE production is expected to decline, modestly for large jets and by larger amounts for regional and business jets. Air traffic growth is expected to turn positive in 2010 and the utilisation of business jets to increase.  If this happens, our civil aftermarket will return to growth in 2010 although, due to continuing destocking, any pick up will be weighted towards the second half,” Company statement.
