    Position Papers

    There are two different kinds of Position Papers:

    1. A paper that provides an objective and balanced study with a clear AIAA position on the best course of action by government, industry, academia, or other stakeholders to address an issue of interest or concern to AIAA members. At a minimum, these papers are subject to review and approval by the PPC and the Board of Trustees.

    2. A paper that provides an objective and balanced study reflecting the collective position of a group or coalition of groups within the Institute. The paper may include formal recommendations of government action on the issue. It is important to note that this paper represents the views of the sponsoring group, but not necessarily the views of AIAA.
