LSA Sales Through Jul 2012

Published by Tim on Thu 06 of Sep., 2012
Dan Johnson publishes a twice annual total of LSA registrations. Here are the totals for July 2012 for the top 9 manufacturers.

ManufacturerMain ModelNumberShare
Flight DesignCTLS34714.5%
CessnaSkycatcher25310.6%
CubCraftersCarbonCubSS2128.9%
Czech Sport AircraftSportCruiser1847.7%

RemosGX NXT1225.1%
Jabiru USAJ-2301094.6%
EvektorSportStar954.0%


Flight Design continues at "#1" but that is a bit misleading. When the LSA market opened in 2006, Flight Design was about the only manufacturer with an airplane and dealer network in place to take advantage of it. They sold a lot of airplanes in the first couple years which gave them the top spot.

I think current sales is a more meaningful metric of which models are popular. Here are the sales for the first and second half of 2011 and the first half of 2012.

Only Cessna and CubCrafters are delivering aircraft in any significant numbers.
