German Business Aviation Association e.V.
On 22 June 1970, the Working Group on Business Aviation in the Federation of German Industry (Arbeitskreis Geschäftsluftfahrt im Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie e.V.) was founded in Cologne. In 1985, it evolved into the German Business Aviation Association. It is a registered association with its seat in the BDI offices in Berlin.
The GBAA sees itself as an association representing the interests of corporate and non-scheduled commercial aviation within the framework of general aviation, as defined by the International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO. It is an independent organisation with its own tasks, requirements and needs.
