EASA at AERO 2019

Stand Number: Hall A5, A5-300

Meet us at AERO!

A new vision and continued commitment for GA: The GA Roadmap 2.0! 

EASA and the European GA community are relentlessly working at making General Aviation regulation simpler, better, accessible and more straightforward. Many waypoints of this action plan - the EASA GA Roadmap - have been achieved and presented at AERO in the past years. EASA's Annual Safety Conference on General Aviation which took place last November in Vienna concluded all these successes and set the path for the EASA GA Roadmap 2.0 - underlining EASA's continued commitment towards GA while embracing innovation!

To learn more about all this, come and visit us at our EASA stand at AERO in Friedrichshafen, where you will find us in Hall A5 at stand A5-300, and also join us at our meetings and events! You will meet EASA and NAA experts ready to answer your questions.
