Counting Down! ANN's Infamous April 1st Edition's Just Around The Corner!

Get Your Wacky Ideas In NOW!

ANN E-I-C Note: Folks... we gotta warn you... our Annual April 1st Editions are LEGENDARY -- and this WILL be our best April 1st Edition yet. Based on all the nonsense we've had to endure in 2016-2017 (which we are duty-bound to lampoon), we certainly have good reason for that... so if you have any ideas of your own as to how to heighten the insanity, this is your LAST CHANCE. I kid you not... as I look over all the stories we've already prepped, we are going to cause serious keyboard damage as people snort their soft drinks all over the place when they start reading this year's edition. This IS OUR BEST YET! As always... NO ONE IS SAFE. FMI: I Can't Believe You're Doing This Again!

GAMA Chairman and Piper boss Simon Caldecott, announced at the GAMA  “Annual Industry Review” press conference, that airplane shipments globally fell 3.9%, from 2,331 units in 2015 to 2,241 units in 2016. Airplane billings declined 14.1%, from $24.1 billion to $20.7 billion. Worldwide rotorcraft shipments fell 16.9%, from 1,036 units in 2015 to 861 units in 2016.
