Consulting agency AVDATA / JetNet has released another annual report on the number of business jets (jet and turboprop) operating worldwide. The data on aircraft entered in national registries were taken as a basis. However, this approach does not allow to show the real picture of the number of aircraft belonging to citizens of specific countries. Practically in all large countries (Russia is not an exception), there is a practice of setting up aircraft in offshore registers or in registers of other states. And it can be a significant proportion of the park. The report is based on data on business jets and aircraft converted to VIP-options. At the same time, the report does not include aircraft serving the first persons of the states and state bodies.

The United States continues to steadily lead in the total number of business jets. As of January 2019, their number was 21,339 aircrafts. Brazil (1 539), Mexico (1 414), Canada (1 359), Venezuela (765), Germany (750), Australia (628), Great Britain (502), France (450) , and closes TOP 10 China (447).

In general, the picture for Europe as of January 1, 2019 remained almost unchanged compared to the same period last year in the ranking. Germany with 750 aircraft tops the rating, followed by the United Kingdom (502), France (450), Switzerland (256), Russia (195), Austria (193), Italy (170), Spain (149), Malta (133) and Portugal (121).

The three leaders in the Middle East: Saudi Arabia (177), Turkey (165) and the United Arab Emirates (140). China (447) remains the leader in Southeast Asia, followed by Japan (262) and India (253). In Africa, the troika is as follows: South Africa (416), Kenya (131) and Nigeria (100). South America is represented by Brazil (1539), Venezuela (765) and Argentina (350). Well, in Australia and Oceania, everything is simple: Australia (528), New Zealand (78) and Papua New Guinea (25).

Recall that this rating includes only aircraft entered into national aviation registries. According to independent analysts, the fleet of aircraft affiliated with Russian private owners and companies is just over 500 aircraft and varies between 490-515 business jets.
