GAMA welcomes helicopter manufacturers

Bell Helicopters will become the first rotorcraft maker to join the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), the Washington based lobbying group has announced.

“We are very excited about working formally to represent this vital and growing sector of the industry,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said in a statement.  “Growing our membership to include rotorcraft manufacturers allows GAMA to better advocate for and promote the interests of the entire general aviation industry throughout the world.”

Bunce said GAMA would work closely with the Helicopter Association International and other groups to “tackle the tough challenges before us.”
