    AIAA Announces Class of 2019 Associate Fellows

    To Be Honored on January 7, 2019, in San Diego, California

    September 6, 2018 – Reston, Va. –The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is pleased to announce its Class of 2019 Associate Fellows. AIAA will formally honor and induct the class at its AIAA Associate Fellows Recognition Ceremony and Dinner on Monday, 7 January 2019, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego in San Diego, California, during its 2019 AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (AIAA SciTech Forum), 7–11 January.

    “I am proud to welcome the Class of 2019 to the ranks of Associate Fellows—which is an esteemed roster of aerospace professionals,” said John Langford, AIAA president. “Their dedication to their fields has set them apart, and they have been recognized by their peers as inspiring colleagues and mentors. I look forward to honoring their achievements at the 2019 AIAA SciTech Forum in January.”

    The grade of Associate Fellow recognizes individuals “who have accomplished or been in charge of important engineering or scientific work, or who have done original work of outstanding merit, or who have otherwise made outstanding contributions to the arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics.” To be selected as an Associate Fellow an individual must be an AIAA Senior Member in good standing, with at least twelve years professional experience, and be recommended by a minimum of three current Associate Fellows.

    “Each year, current AIAA Associate Fellows recognize the hard work, commitment, and innovative spirit of their colleagues and make them one of their own,” said Dan Dumbacher, AIAA executive director. “AIAA Associate Fellows, as a group, are committed to pushing boundaries and testing new theories, resulting in the best ideas that can help transform aerospace across industry, academia, and government.”
