Aerospace Industries Association

About Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) Standards

The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) is the premier trade association representing the American aerospace and defense industries. Established in 1919, AIA advocates for policies and standards focused on the safety, efficiency, and technological advancement of the aerospace sector. 


AIA's work spans across aviation, space, and defense. AIA represents the nation's leading manufacturers and suppliers of civil, military, and business aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, space systems, aircraft engines, missiles, materiel, and related components, equipment, services, and information technology.

Through its standards development, the AIA contributes to the aerospace industry meeting rigorous safety and performance goals. The association's efforts significantly contribute to maintaining the United States' leadership in aerospace technology and defense capabilities. AIA also plays a role in shaping regulatory policies by working closely with government agencies and international bodies.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Aerospace Industries Association developed a set of Standards called National Aerospace Standards (NAS). NAS Standards refer to Standards developed by the NAS Committee, which is a subdivision of the AIA. 

 

These Standards are widely used in the aerospace industry to promote compatibility, reliability, and uniformity in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance of aerospace systems and components.

 

The AIA also collaborates with the Department of Defense to convert some existing military Standards into NAS Standards. These converted documents often have a "NASM" (inch-based) or "NAM" (metric-based) prefix.

Aerospace Industries Association Standards provide guidelines for the design, manufacturing, and maintenance of aerospace components to promote stringent safety and reliability. These Standards enable the integration of systems and equipment while supporting regulatory compliance, which in turn helps companies meet local and international regulations.

 

AIA Standards drive innovation and sustainability by encouraging new technologies and eco-friendly practices, such as reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency.

The AIA owns and manages the development of Aerospace Industries Association Standards, including NAS Standards. The process follows a set of established procedures to ensure transparency and industry involvement.


The AIA operates nationally in the United States and is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. However, NAS Standards are recognized and used by aerospace companies globally due to their focus on safety, quality, and efficiency.


The organization serves a wide network of aerospace companies and professionals across the United States, influencing industry practices and Standards on both a national and international level.
