Citation deliveries were reported at 52 rather than 46 the year prior. Cessna Caravans and Sky Couriers and Beechcraft King Airs were at 47 compared to 43 in 2021.

Textron CEO Scott Donnelly stated on an earnings call with analysts that the supply chain affected the number of aircraft Textron Aviation delivered. 


“We were a few hundred million dollars lighter versus our initial guide, based on the fact that we continue to see supply-chain challenges,” he said. “I think we’ve had a number of suppliers that were challenged [but] are getting better. But you always have a couple out there that are still struggling. We kind of anticipated that in the back half of the year...There’s still going to be supply-chain challenges along the way, but we think we’ve taken that into proper consideration in terms of the 2023 guide.”
