This represents an increase from the 36 deliveries in the third quarter of 2013, one calendar year earlier. As of the third quarter of 2014, Bombardier had delivered 126 business jets. New aircraft orders on the other hand, have remained relatively steady as compared to previous years. Overall, including order backlogs, the company has made steady growth and increases in revenue from previous years. The company, in the 4th quarter of 2014, solidified its progress by securing new orders for Global 6000s worth $293 million and for Learjet 75s worth $81 million.
