AIAA is shaping the future of aerospace!

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the largest aerospace professional society in the world, serving a diverse range of more than 35,000 individual members from 80 countries, and 100 corporate members. AIAA members help make the world safer, more connected, more accessible, and more prosperous.

We believe that…

  • Our profession always has and always will inspire innovation and drive progress in the U.S. and throughout the world.
  • As a profession and community, we will continue to be amazed and to amaze; to dream big; and to be both exhilarated and inspired by new frontiers.
  • The essence of the aerospace profession is our fascination with flight, with defying gravity, and with going beyond the boundaries that some might see as limitations.
  • Our work fuels the collective human drive to explore and be part of something bigger than ourselves, and brings about new technologies that make everyday living better for everyone.

We exist to ignite and celebrate aerospace ingenuity and collaboration – and we promise to be a lifelong link for aerospace professionals and a champion for their achievements.

"In Search of the Next Impossible Thing," the AIAA credo.
