European GA Data

GAMA-IAOPA-EBAA European General Aviation Survey 2018

There is agreement among industry stakeholders that Europe has no statistical data about the General Aviation (GA) fleet. Having this data would allow profound safety and economic analyses. So far, most GA analyses depend on estimates and expert judgement, which is far from an ideal method and one of the main reasons for a high level of over-regulation in the GA industry. In the USA such data exists, generated by both the FAA and the GA User Associations; consequently the NALL-report as well as other Safety Analyses and Economic Impact Assessments can be based on statistical facts.

GAMA, in partnership with the International Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (IAOPA-Europe) and the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), has created this new survey in order to collect meaningful statistical data for European GA. IAOPA made a first attempt in 2014 with success (about 1,500 operators and 3,500 pilots replied) but this data is now a bit outdated, and geographically limited.

It will take 10 – 15 minutes to fill out the survey. If you don’t have the precise figures at hand, your estimates are sufficient. For operators that operate a fleet of different aircraft types, we recommend running the survey for each aircraft type. If more than one aircraft of similar type is operated, the survey can be executed with average data for these aircraft in order to save time. If you have questions, please contact us at brussels@gama.aero.

Your data will be protected and only be shared with other GA Associations, European and National European Authorities, which meet the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, and we will use it solely for Safety and Economic Analyses. Your data will not be given to other third parties.

We intend to create a representative sample of aircraft operators to do a continuous trend-monitoring. If you intend to participate in this project, please give us your contact-data at the end of the survey.

Thank you very much for your time and effort. With your support, you are helping to make General Aviation in Europe safer and more economical.
