Welcome to GAMA.aero

GAMA is an international trade association representing over 100 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.

Policy

Promoting the General Aviation Roadmap

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.

#GAData

European GA Survey

GAMA and IAOPA Europe conducted a European General Aviation Survey earlier this year to gather data to understand safety and economic trends in the GA community. The survey received an overwhelmingly positive response with over 6000 aircraft from 32 countries. Full results will be published in November 2019, together with plans for our 2020 survey!

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.
