Time to build aircraft
« on: October 15, 2010, 05:44:52 AM »

Question. Obviously now people are ordering and the backlogs get bigger and bigger, it takes time before you get your new shiny planes. I am wondering though, is there a way of knowing/seeing how long it usually takes for type X to be build, without the backlogs? Like a standard amount of time?

I think the build time in AWS is up to 6 months, if there is no backlog.  May depend on aircraft type.

No, 6 months is the time when order slot dates are locked.

Build time is somewhat less, like a month to three months, depending on the plane size I think. You can see that when making an a/c order to an completely empty production line - the first possible slot you get there is "today+build time".
