Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association - LAMA

A LAMA Audit works closely with the manufacturer to review every single document required under multiple applicable standards created by the ASTM committee.

LAMA supplies the manufacturer with detailed, line-by-line checklists to help organize the documentation.

Documents are packaged and sent to LAMA, which retains the documents to allow for later review if needed. Following the document review, a trained auditor makes an on-site review in person.

Quality procedures are examined and documents spot-checked.

On issuance of a successful Findings Report, LAMA can present the manufacturer with a Certificate of Completion, which allows the producer to apply a LAMA Label to every aircraft produced within a two-year period following the audit. Audits must be renewed every two years (though an internal audit is required every year under ASTM standards). Because of the efficient method of auditing and the dedication of auditors, a LAMA ASTM Compliance Audit costs less than $10,000, a fraction of the cost of audits from other organizations.

While conducting its thorough audit, LAMA is focused on helping manufacturers successfully complete the LAMA ASTM Compliance Audit. While nothing short of 100% compliance is accepted for a Certificate of Completion, industry consultants recommended by LAMA can assist any non-compliant manufacturer. Companies audited by LAMA do not "pass" or "fail," The audit is either "complete" or "incomplete." Only upon 100% completion is a certificate issued and the manufacturer eligible to place LAMA Label decals on their airplanes.

Insurance companies and member organizations as well as government officials have stated that such a program is needed to assure the public regarding the new method of certifying aircraft; the LAMA Label proves to users that a compliant producer has built a particular airplane.

LAMA, the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association, is the light aviation industry's trade association. Founded in 1984, LAMA represents approximately 100 members of the Light-Sport Aircraft business community including airframe manufacturers; producers of engines, avionics, and components; suppliers, distributors; flight schools; and other aviation businesses.

LAMA provides the LAMA Compliance Audit to producers wishing to demonstrate third party oversight and the organization uses the LAMA Label on compliant Light-Sport Aircraft to convey this verification to consumers.
