well-attended Annual Industry Review and 2005 Outlook, the General
Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) said that continuing to
improve the margin of safety for general aviation is its
highest priority in 2005, notwithstanding
the fact that the number of general aviation fatal accidents
reached an all time low in 2004.
Another priority is ensuring the U.S. has the most efficient and
up-to-date air transportation system possible, with sufficient
capacity to meet the needs of all users. GAMA said it supports the
need for the Next Generation Air Transportation System, and
believes that developing this system must be fully coordinated with
all users and among all government agencies.
Ron Swanda (right), GAMA’s Interim President (and a heck
of a tough act to follow...), said, “General aviation has a
lot more in common with other air transportation system users than
we do differences – safety, capacity, efficiency.” GAMA
challenged every segment of aviation to work together and decide
upon a fair and equitable way to raise revenue for the FAA’s
long and short-term needs.
“Then, when Congress considers the FAA’s authorizing
legislation, every segment of aviation can go to Congress with a
single message: ‘Over the next 20 years, we need to develop
and implement a totally new, advanced air transportation system.
The public demands it. Our nation’s economy could lose
billions of dollars annually if we fail to act. Here’s how we
all agree to fund it.’”
