The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) releases the official report of general aviation industry shipment and billings data on a quarterly basis. GAMA organizes this data is four different segments: business jets, turboprops and pistion engine airplanes as well as helicopters (starting in 2012). In addition to quarterly reports, GAMA publishes the year-end shipment and billings figures in February of each year in conjunction with the release of the annual General Aviation Statistical Databook & Industry Outlook. The book contains the association's industry outlook for the coming year as well as data on the GA fleet and flight activity, the U.S. pilot population, airports, safety, international data and even forecast information.
The newest feature on GAMA's website is a searchable general aviation shipment database. Please use this tool to search general aviation industry shipment data by type and manufacturer for a specific year or range of years. The database currently is populated for the past twelve years. Please check back often, as we will continually backfill data for earlier years.
