GAMA Adds Dunning as Director of Global Innovation & Policy, Promotes Sambiase

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association hired David Dunning as director of global innovation and policy and promoted Joe Sambiase to managing director of airworthiness and regulatory affairs.

Dunning will manage the GAMA’s strategic activities to foster the development and entry-into-service of innovations in technologies, products and services, which encompasses the work of the GAMA’s electric propulsion and innovation committee and advanced air mobility portfolio. Before joining the GAMA, Dunning served as advanced air mobility program manager at the FAA and has more than 19 years of experience in military, civil and government aviation operations.

“We are excited to have David as part of our team to support the success and growth of general aviation innovation and technologies and oversee the activities of GAMA’s electric propulsion and innovation committee. His wealth of institutional knowledge and expertise of regulatory matters in the emerging sector of advanced air mobility will be a great asset to our membership as we work with [the] FAA to enable the introduction of safety enhancing technologies and new eVTOL aircraft,” Pete Bunce, president and CEO of the GAMA, said.

Sambiase joined the GAMA in 2010 and is responsible for the GAMA’s activities related to regulatory requirements governing the initial and continuing airworthiness aspects of general aviation aircraft. In his new role, Sambiase will oversee a broader range of technical domains within certification, production and maintenance of general aviation products and provide increased representation through international initiatives and partnerships.

“Joe has done a masterful job advancing our industry’s maintenance and completions/modifications agenda through cooperative work with authorities on both sides of the Atlantic. He earned this promotion through his profound dedication and expertise, and we know GAMA will benefit as he takes on these added responsibilities,” Bunce said.
