AIAA celebrates National Aviation Day today, Tuesday, 19 August, the anniversary of the birth of Orville Wright. This day honors all who work in aviation and aerospace, and commemorates the sacrifices of the early aviation pioneers who first dared to prove that powered flight was possible. “Aviation has transformed our world – from bringing people closer together, to speeding commerce, to ensuring a strong national defense, the aviation enterprise shapes all of our lives,” said AIAA President Jim Albaugh.
