    Recognition

    For over 75 years, AIAA has been a champion to make sure that aerospace professionals are recognized for their contributions. Join with us throughout the AA SPACE Forum as AA recognizes the very best in our industry: those individuals and teams who have taken aerospace technology to the next level…who have advanced the quality and depth of the aerospace profession…who have leveraged their aerospace knowledge for the benefit of society. Their achievements have inspired us to dream and to explore new frontiers.

    We celebrate our industry's discoveries and achievements from the small but brilliantly simple innovations that affect everyday lives to the major discoveries and missions that fuel our collective human drive to explore and accomplish amazing things.
