GAMA will be present at the International Brazil Air Show
GAMA (General Aviation Manufacturers Association) represents more than 90 of the world’s leading manufacturers of general aviation aircraft and helicopters, engines, avionics, components and related services. In addition to building nearly all general aviation aircraft flying around the world today, GAMA member companies also operate aircraft fleets, fixed operations, pilot / technical training centers and maintenance facilities around the world.
The confirmation of this key organization for international aviation is very important for IBAS, which will take place from March 29 to April 2, 2017, at RIOgaleão Airport in Rio de Janeiro.
“Brazil is the largest general aviation market outside of North America and Europe. Despite the economic crisis, GAMA member companies continue to have great long-term potential for continued growth in the general and business aviation market in Brazil. In addition, of course, Brazil is an important center of innovation and production in the aviation industry. Embraer, a GAMA member company, has become one of the world’s largest executive jet manufacturing powerhouses, offering a full spectrum of respected and admired products ranging from the small Phenom series to the mid-range Legacy series to the product line Long Range Lineage “says Peter Bunce, President of GAMA.
According to the President, GAMA represents companies from around the world in Brazil, Europe, Canada, the United States and China that manufacture general aviation aircraft and other components, as well as repair stations and pilot training and maintenance organizations. The organization sees the IBAS as an opportunity to champion the growing harmonization of safety regulatory frameworks around the world to ensure that the general aviation industry can bring the most secure and technologically advanced aviation products to the market for all manufacturers.
“We hope this event will reinforce the point that general and business aircraft, including rotating aircraft, are vital components and components of a nation’s transportation infrastructure. The general and business aviation industry not only provides well-paid jobs, directly and indirectly, but is also a tool for economic and regional development, bringing people together and connecting markets around the world. Business jets are also a productivity tool that allows companies in an increasingly interdependent global marketplace to react flexibly and agility to new opportunities whether they are across the country or across the globe. An event like IBAS helps showcase the wide variety of mission-specific aircraft available today and also the high level of innovation and safety that characterize modern general aviation aircraft, “he says.
