Welcome to GAMA.aero

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.

About GAMA

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.
