GAMA Mourns Loss of Tom Poberezny

OSHKOSH, Wisconsin – General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) President and CEO, Pete Bunce, released the following statement regarding the passing of Tom Poberezny:

“Tom Poberezny was a lifelong ambassador for the general aviation community. The vison he shared with his father is the reason why tens of thousands of aviation enthusiasts gather at AirVenture to celebrate all things aviation. He had a devout passion for the next generation of aviators and his passing, on the opening day of AirVenture 2022, reminds us all why we come together annually with common purpose to share our love for all things aerospace. This will be Tom’s lasting legacy. On behalf of the entire staff and membership of GAMA, I extend our deepest and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends and all those whose lives he touched.”
