GAMA figures for 2015

US AOPA article

Amazing that Diamond declined 30%.

What is GAMA anyway. Except from bizjets and helicopters they represent 10-20 % of GA. Very much irrelevant for most pilots and most of the associated GA industry (with the exceptions above).

The elephant is the circulation

It doesn’t matter who they are or who they represent in this context. The production/sales figures they publish are the same for everybody.

They are the same, but they only show a fraction of manufacturers or sales. There are many LSA (read: certified aircraft) manufacturers, glider and motorglider manufacturers, microlight manufacturers and of course the Kit manufacturers that go unnoticed. There are even a couple CS23 aircraft manufacturers not mentioned. So a decline in GAMA reported sales has only limited value to the evaluation of aircraft sales as a whole because a shift to LSA or microlight, motorgliders or homebuilt aircraft goes unnoticed.
