Aeronautics and Astronautics
AIAA logoFor more than 65 years, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) has been the principal society of aerospace engineers and scientists. Officially formed in 1963 through a merger of the American Rocket Society (ARS) and the Institute of Aerospace Sciences (IAS), AIAA is the world's largest professional organization devoted to advancing engineering and scientific pursuits within aviation, space and defense on behalf of government, industry and academia.

AIAA launched the Evolution of Flight campaign in May 1999 to mark the 100th anniversary of flight, recognize the achievements of men and women who challenged history, and lay the groundwork for the next 100 years of innovation in aviation and space technology. Through programs and events, AIAA will honor individuals in aerospace history whose legacy continues to impact society. They will encourage new talent in the sciences to ignite innovation in the aerospace industries and bring the leaders of the community together to shape a common vision for the future.
