AAM aircraft commitments

We track orders, letters of intent, memorandum of understanding, and other commitments. Few orders are truly binding before certification or production has started. John Leahy, the former chief operating officer for customers at Airbus, famously referred to anything other than a firm order as “letters of enthusiasm.”
