The various models made over the years are the two place AA1 Yankee, AA1A & AA1B Trainer, aka TR2, aka AA1C Lynx; and the four place: AA5 Traveller, AA5A Cheetah, and AA5B & AG5B Tiger; and the twin engine GA7 Cougar. The manufacturing rights for the Cougar have been recently sold to Socota, a division of Aerospaciale, and they are about to go back in production. The Tiger and Cheetah will again be rolling off the production line at TLM Aerospace some time in the future. None of the other models are in production. The picture on the right depicts a twin engine Cougar at the top, a four place Tiger in the middle and a two seat AA1 at the bottom. Rob Henning's gorgeous two seater, a '77 Lynx below is powered by a 160 HP Lycoming.
Any "Grumman" owner or pilot would be wise to join the American Yankee Association, if only for the detailed maintenance information that is published six time a year in their magazine, The American Star. Membership dues are $50.00 per year, ($24.00 of which covers the subscription to the Star), with a one time initiation fee of $7.50 for North American members and $10.00 for other countries. The initiation fee covers a package of crests and other goodies.

If you would just like to talk to someone about the AYA, join the Grumman-Gang for a short while. Many of the Gang are Directors of the Association.
While most members of the Gang are also members of the American Yankee Association there is no administrative or financial relationship between the two groups. In particular, the American Yankee Association has no authority or role in the operation of the automatic mailer that distributes the Gang's message nor do they have any responsibility for what is published on the Grumman Gang's web site.
For more comprehensive and up to date information about the AYA visit the American Yankee Association webpage.
The Grumman-Gang is made possible by Mark Matthews, who is the Webmaster and maintains the mailing list.
