Authored by Richard Aboulafia, Teal Group's ‘World Military & Civil Aircraft Briefing’ is a monthly-updated information service consisting of reports that track the status and outlook of more than 150 aircraft programs and markets. Each program report includes information describing the aircraft, designating the agency responsible for development or purchase of the plane, an explanation of the various subsystems and the companies involved in supplying the components (primes as well as subcontractors), an overview giving a brief history and current status of the program, and, finally, a 10-year funding forecast (US programs only) and 10-year production forecast (all programs) is included, along with a “Teal Group Evaluation” explaining our rationale for the forecasts. The market overview reports contain a compilation of the production forecasts for a given market, along with resulting market shares for aircraft programs and manufacturers. This information is given in both units and current dollars.
The program reports are organized in sections by mission (e.g., fighter/attack or transports) and within sections, alphabetically by manufacturer/model. The market overviews are contained together in their own section. Most of the Western world's aircraft programs are covered in ‘World Military & Civil Aircraft Briefing’. These include planes under development, in production or out of production, but still in significant service.
