    With the next round of financial results due out this month, a recent flurry of orders may provide a clue of continuing momentum.  Usually large-order announcements are held until the National Business Aviation Association’s meeting and convention, but both Bombardier and Cessna revealed substantial contracts Sept. 28, a month in advance of the annual industry event but also the end of their fiscal quarters.

    Bombardier detailed two separate orders—from undisclosed customers—that combine in value for $800 million. One of the orders, valued at $300 million, involves four Global 6000 aircraft and one Global 8000. The second, valued at $500 million, calls for four Global 6000 and four Global 8000 jets.

    Cessna, meanwhile received an order valued at $60.255 million from Canadian fractional operator AirSprint Private Aviation for at least nine Citation CJ2+ aircraft. The order was placed through Cessna’s authorized sales representative in Canada, Innotech-Execaire. The CJ2+ jets, to be delivered over the next 24-30 months, will replace AirSprint’s Pilatus PC-12 turboprop fleet.
