October 1, 2019 – Reston, Va. – The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is pleased to announce its Class of 2020 Associate Fellows. AIAA will formally honor and induct the class at its AIAA Associate Fellows Induction Ceremony on Monday, 6 January 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida, during its 2020 AIAA SciTech Forum, 6–10 January.

“Aerospace is constantly evolving to solve problems and push the boundaries of the possible,” said John Langford, AIAA president. “The newest class of Associate Fellows is building on the great work that has come before them to push us faster and farther here on Earth as well as in space. Congratulations to the Class of 2020 Associate Fellows!”

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.

“I am proud to welcome the these newly minted Associate Fellows to the esteemed roster of aerospace professionals,” said Dan Dumbacher, AIAA executive director. “Their dedication to aerospace, from making meaningful contributions to their field to mentoring students and young professionals, inspires us all.”
