Significance

Celebrating Aerospace and Defense – Saving and Improving Lives Every Day

National Aerospace Week – the third week in September annually – was established by AIA in 2010 as an opportunity for the aerospace industry and its supporters to recognize the enormous contribution that the industry makes to America’s economy, competitiveness and national security. To support the effort, both houses of Congress issued a resolution on September 13, 2010 (H.Con.Res.292) establishing the third week in September annually as National Aerospace Week. Since its inception, National Aerospace Week (history) has been a rallying call for interested groups nationwide to demonstrate their support for the industry by sponsoring numerous events nationally and locally during the week.

With federal budgets under great pressure and cuts under sequestration continuing, it’s important especially now that elected officials in Congress and the administration fully appreciate the enormous contribution aerospace and defense makes to America’s well being. We’re reaching out to our members and organizations around the country to highlight key themes and messages during National Aerospace Week.

As in previous years, we need you to get engaged during National Aerospace Week. You can do so by hosting events, communicating with elected officials – nationally and locally – and sponsoring other activities (toolkit). To underscore the importance of the industry and speak volumes at a critical time, National Aerospace Week will tie in with AIA’s multi-year budget campaign Second to None. The industry and the nation appreciate your interest and support. We look forward to having you join us as we work to keep our industry strong and resourceful as it can be.

If you would like to sponsor an event, add an existing event to our national calendar, or want additional information on National Aerospace Week, please refer to the contacts provided on the bottom of this page.
