Notes:
(*) American Champion Aircraft did not provide delivery data for calendar year 2023. The table above does not include American Champion Aircraft data for calendar year 2022 to provide a year-over-year comparison between the same reporting companies. The 2022 report, however, includes American Champion Aircraft delivery data.

(**) The 2023 report published on February 21, 2024 and associated table does not include fourth quarter Leonardo Helicopters delivery data, because Leonardo will release year-end financial results after the initial publication of the report. The table above does not include Leonardo Helicopter fourth quarter 2022 data to provide a year-over-year comparison. The report and the table will be update with Leonardo year-end data by early March.
