BRITISH BUSINESS AIRCRAFT operators and those involved in general aviation are to be represented by one body following an announcement last week that the Business Aircraft Users Association (BAUA) and the General Aviation Manufacturers and Traders Association (GAMTA) are to merge. Councils of both organisations have passed resolutions which will allow the two bodies to become one. Mark Wilson, chief executive of GAMTA, will take on the same role of the merged associations, whilst John Batty of BAUA will have specific responsibility representing members involved with business aviation. The new association, with approximately 160 member companies, represents the full spectrum of general aviation, from flight training aircraft to high-end business jets, and uniquely will combine all disciplines within one organisation.
