Welcome to GAMA.aero
GAMA is an international trade association representing the majority of the world’s leading manufacturers of general aviation aeroplanes and rotorcraft, engines, avionics, and related equipment. GAMA’s members also manage fleets of aircraft, airport fixed-based operations, pilot training, and maintenance facilities worldwide.
GAMA is an active supporter of the rapid implementation of the GA Roadmap - a European initiative to address the over-regulation of general aviation in recent years - with a new emphasis on proportionate, risk-based rules.
Towards a new EASA Mandate
The European Parliament and EU Member States are currently working towards a proposed new mandate for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). In December both institutions reached separate internal agreements on their positions; paving the way for final negotiations towards agreeing a final text.
CS-23 Rule Finalized
GAMA Board members joined EASA Certification Director Trevor Woods as he announced the finalization of the new rule dramatically improving how easily new safety technologies and products can be developed and made available.
First Quarter Aircraft Shipment Data
GAMA released its 2017 first quarter worldwide aircraft shipments data, which showed that both total airplane and rotorcraft shipments increased compared to the same period in 2016, while combined billings declined to a total of $4.1 billion.
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) is devoted to one primary purpose: to foster and advance the general welfare, safety, interests and activities of general aviation throughout the world. This includes promoting a better understanding of general aviation manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul, and the important role these industry segments play in economic growth and opportunity, and in serving the transport needs of communities, companies and individuals.
GAMA provides a single voice for the world’s leading general and business aviation manufacturers. We work with regulators, authorities and policymakers in Europe and beyond to advocate for an appropriate, safe environment conductive to a strong general aviation sector. Our European activities are managed by our dedicated team in GAMA’s Brussels office; bringing together experts from GAMA’s global staff and membership.
