Research and Markets: Updated 2011 Report for the $18 Billion US Aviation Services Industry

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dcc9c0/aviation_services) has announced the addition of the "Aviation Services" report to their offering.

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

The US aviation services industry includes about 4,000 companies with combined annual revenue of about $18 billion. Major companies include Atlantic Aviation FBO, Million Air Interlink, and Signature Flight Support. The industry is concentrated: the 50 largest companies account for more than half of industry revenue.

Companies in the aviation services industry operate airports for commercial and general aviation and provide support services such as air traffic control, aircraft fueling and maintenance, baggage and cargo handling, and rental of hangar space.


Demand for aviation services is driven by business and leisure air travel and the size and age of aircraft fleets. The profitability of individual companies depends on efficient operations. Large companies enjoy economies of scale in purchasing. Small companies can compete effectively in hometown markets. The industry is labor-intensive: average annual revenue per employee is about $125,000.


Major services include aircraft maintenance and repair (65 percent of industry revenue), fixed base operator services (20 percent), and ground handling (10 percent). Other services include airport administration and operation and wholesale fuel sales.

Companies in the industry operate airports and provide airport-based support services to commercial airlines and the general aviation (private and business plane) market. Many companies in the industry are known as FBOs (fixed base operators). FBOs, which usually lease facilities from a host airport, typically rent hangar space to general aviation aircraft operators.
