Cincinnati-based Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARGUS) reports that July 2010 business flying was up slightly from June 2010 levels. In all, flying increased by 0.6 percent over the previous month. Fractional turboprop activity was the busiest sector, with a 15.2-percent increase over June 2010 flying; small-cabin fractional flying was up 12.6 percent.
As for FAR Part 91 operations, the picture is more subdued. July 2010 Part 91 turboprop activity was down by 4.3 percent compared to July 2009 levels.
