The dollar amount reported (using net sales price, not manufacturer's suggested retail price) includes: all business and general aviation
aircraft electronic sales - including all component and accessories in cockpit/cabin/software upgrades/portables/certified and noncertified
aircraft electronics; all hardware (tip to tail); batteries; and chargeable product upgrades from the participating manufacturers. The amount
does not include repairs and overhauls, extended warranty or subscription services.
Of the more than $1.7 billion in sales during the first nine months of 2015, 51.4 percent came from forward-fit (avionics equipment
installed by airframe manufacturers during original production) sales, or more than $911 million. The retrofit (avionics equipment installed
after original production) market amounted to 48.6 percent of sales during the first nine months of the current year, or more than $862 million.
According to the companies that separated their total sales figures between North America (U.S. and Canada) and other
international markets, 64.3 percent of sales in the first nine months occurred in North America (U.S. and Canada), while 35.7
percent took place in other international markets.

"Unfortunately, the report shows some softness in sales this quarter and in the current year," said AEA President Paula Derks. "With a
year-over-year sales decline of 7.5 percent, clearly, our industry continues to face some economic challenges that may be primarily related
to the strength of the U.S. dollar in the international markets. In addition, while the FAA reports that the ADS-B equipage pace has grown
in the past year, it has not resulted in a similar increase in total avionics sales. The AEA will continue to monitor these and other economic
forces moving forward."
