AIAA has a number of valued resources for educators. You may be interested in individual books, journals or meeting papers to increase your own knowledge of the most state-of-the-art technologies and best practices, to improve your skills. You may also be interested in finding the best textbook for your course, or academic program.

AIAA offers all that and more, as the catalyst for inspired idea exchange and solutions, a convener of the most original perspectives, and curator of essential research information.
