Industry Reacts to Passing of David Hinson

Former FAA Administrator Seen Off by Peers

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) issued a statement regarding the passing of David Hinson, former FAA administrator.

GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce issued a statement, recognizing the passage of a valued associate in the industry. Hinson was a lifelong aviator, known for his stint as FAA Administrator in addition to time as a pilot for Northwest Airlines, United, West Coast, and Midway Airlines. Prior to beginning his FAA tenure, Hinson worked as EVP for Douglas Aircraft.

“We are forever thankful for the service of former FAA Administrator Hinson. He was a champion for aviation safety and security, and he did a steadfast job overseeing the FAA during trying times. On behalf of the entire staff and membership of GAMA, I extend our deepest and heartfelt condolences to Administrator Hinson’s family, friends and former colleagues. Administrator Hinson will forever be remembered for his leadership, resolve and service to the country.

“GAMA has been fortunate to have Administrator Hinson’s son, Eric, as an integral part of our Board of Directors, serving on our Executive Committee and as our 2023 Chairman. It is clear that the Administrator’s passion, knowledge and dedication for aviation was passed on to his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eric and his family during this difficult time.”
