aviation, aerospace and defense industries. This proprietary data and insight
is a comprehensive release for Aviation Week, the industry's largest
multimedia information and services provider.

New fleet and MRO databases provide the analytical foundation for Aviation
Week & Space Technology's (AW&ST) "Aerospace & Defense 2013" issue as well as
the new MRO forecasting tools for commercial, military, helicopter and
business aviation aircraft. Global military analysis, detailed commercial MRO

experts on technology, engineering, supply chain and manufacturing
—forward-looking insight that includes:

  oAerospace & Defense 2013 - For the large commercial aircraft sector,
    orders will moderate, but production rates will increase to record
    levels. First flights of key new aircraft are scheduled: the Airbus A350,
    Bombardier CSeries and Mitsubishi MRJ. Business aviation remains flat, but
    the rotorcraft sector is rebounding.
  oCommercial MRO - Civil MRO worldwide remains robust for the next decade,
    enjoying annual growth of roughly 3.1%. Engine maintenance dominates the
    outlook, with an annual growth rate close to 4% and its share among the
    five MRO segments will grow from 39% in 2013 to 42% in 2022.
  oMilitary MRO - While global growth remains flat, spending is robust across
    all categories, with component maintenance (all types) growing fastest at
    a CAGR of .5%.
  oHelicopter MRO - 10-year forecast projected at $23 billion for civil
    helicopter airframe MRO.

"If there is one theme that recurs frequently through Aerospace & Defense
2013, it is China and its growing financial, industrial, political and
military influence on aerospace and defense globally," says Graham Warwick,
Managing Editor, Technology, AW&ST. "By flying two new stealth fighter
prototypes, operating an aircraft from a navy carrier for the first time and
unveiling a range of unmanned-aircraft designs over the past two years China,
at least in the eyes of the public, has narrowed the U.S.'s technological

"In the past two years or so, jet aircraft useful life for both passenger and
freighter have reduced if we compare the statistics with those from five years
ago," says Yen-Pu Paul Chen, Director, Forecasts & Analytics, Aviation Week.
"As a result, a significant portion of the deliveries will serve the purpose
of filling the capacity gaps as opposed to providing additional capacity for
growth purpose."

"This is a historic, transformative time for Aviation Week and our industry,"
says Greg Hamilton, President, Aviation Week. "As the U.S defense budget
faces unprecedented pressure and uncertainty, the commercial aviation
manufacturing and supply chain base is under incredible pressure to meet
demand. We are excited to expand our capabilities to provide industry leaders
the tools to make informed decisions — from strategy to business development —
at a time when clarity and ROI is most needed."
