The American Yankee Association (AYA) is the official owners group for all models of American, Grumman, Gulfstream, and American General light aircraft. AYA was initially formed in June, 1976. The original concept focused on the model AA1 "American Yankee," with owners of subsequent two- and four-place models accepted as "associate members." This was changed almost immediately to include as full members all of the two-place owners, and, in 1978, the bylaws were amended to include all of the other models built by American Aviation, Grumman American, and Gulfstream Aerospace. In 1989, these aircraft were returned to production by the American General Aircraft Company (AGAC), and remained in production until 1994. Tiger Aircraft revived the line between 2001 and 2006. In honor of the original aircraft, the Yankee, designed by Jim Bede, the name of the organization has remained "American Yankee Association." The name has a long history that is well-known by numerous publications and organizations which have dealt with us over the years.
Membership is open to all owners, pilots, and enthusiasts of the entire aircraft product line, ranging from the AA1 through the GA7. All memberships include the spouse or significant other of the primary member. Our policy on partnership-owned airplanes is that all partners not of the same household should join as individual members.
