From its start in 1970, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has been devoted to one primary purpose: to foster and advance the general welfare, safety, interests and activities of general aviation. This includes promoting a better understanding of general aviation and the important role it plays in economic growth and in serving the transportation needs of communities, companies and individuals worldwide.
GAMA represents over 90 of the world’s leading manufacturers, general aviation airplanes and rotorcraft, engines, avionics, components, and related services. In addition to building nearly all of the general aviation airplanes flying worldwide today, GAMA member companies also operate fleets of airplanes, fixed-based operations, pilot / technician training centers, and maintenance facilities worldwide.
Headquartered in Washington DC, USA, with offices in Brussels, Belgium, and Dubai, U.A.E., GAMA represents the interests of its members to government agencies throughout the world. These interests include legislation, safety regulations and standards, market access, development of aviation infrastructure, and aviation security.
GAMA also engages with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) process on behalf of its members and works with national and international industry groups to promote the interests of general aviation worldwide.
Through its public information and education programs, GAMA promotes better understanding of general aviation and the important role it plays in economic growth and in serving the transportation needs of communities, companies and individuals worldwide.
