The GAMA and IAOPA Europe General Aviation Survey 2020 is now open! General Aviation aircraft owners and operators in Europe are invited to take part in the survey now to help improve aviation safety, estimate the economic benefits and provide opinions on key issues facing our sector.
GAMA has published the 2019 year-end aircraft shipment and billings report. Overall aircraft billings increased compared to 2018. Aeroplane deliveries were up while helicopter deliveries declined.
Europe's market share for operators taking the delivery of aeroplanes remained stable for piston and turboprop aeroplanes at 11.2% and 12.8% respectively of the worldwide deliveries. The market share for business jets delivered to Europe declined by one percentage point to 14.3% of the worldwide 2019 shipments.
European-based aeroplane manufacturers finished the year with increases. The total number of European manufactured aeroplanes reached 778 units, an increase of 29% compared to 2018, with billings valued at €2.9billion.

GAMA European GA Info Day with DG MOVE
We were honored to host the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) Aviation Safety Unit for an introduction to the world of General Aviation in Europe. For information on this event, please contact Cate Brancart (email@example.com).
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.
