GAMA has published second quarter GA airplane shipment and billings data. The general aviation industry delivered 995 airplanes at a value of $9 billion during the first half of 2017. "Results for the second quarter of this year are very much like the first – mixed, with some bright spots,” said GAMA president and CEO Pete Bunce. “We hope rule rewrites in the U.S. and Europe, reorganization of the FAA certification directorate, and ongoing certification and regulatory reform efforts in Congress, including fuller utilization of the delegation authorization, will spur higher numbers in future quarters this year and the next.” The piston airplane segment led the industry in unit improvement at a 5.6 percent increase compared to the same period in 2016.

Aero-TV: Senator Inhofe on Protecting GA - An Aviation Hero's Steadfast Efforts

Discussing ATC Privatization And More With Aero-News At AirVenture

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) has been a strong advocate of General Aviation throughout his Senate Career. In an interview with ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell, he said that the concept of ATC privatization is dead in the Senate. Inhofe said that the FAA Authorization bill reported out of the Senate does not contain language that would allow for the privatization of the nation's air traffic control system, and now, in his estimation, House Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) does not have the votes in the house to pass the legislation.
