AIA Expands National Aerospace Celebration

Events Are Planned For September 12-18

Following what AIA says was the resounding success of the first-ever National Aerospace Day last year, the Aerospace Industries Association is expanding the activities this year during National Aerospace Week, September 12-18.

The aerospace and defense industry contributes to American economic vitality, national security, trade and technological superiority. Hundreds of thousands of industry workers across the country are keeping the United States strong and competitive. The industry serves as a wellspring of innovation leading to extraordinary advances in technology, exploration and environmental stewardship.

"Together let's use National Aerospace Week as an opportunity to remind our citizens and elected officials that we are 'the Strength to Lift America,'" said Marion C. Blakey, president and CEO of AIA. "We want to encourage all aerospace employees and supporters, elected officials and aerospace-related organizations and educational institutions to participate in this national celebration."

According to AIA, the aerospace and defense industry employs 817,000 workers directly, supporting more than 2 million middle-class jobs in related fields. There are also 30,000 suppliers to the industry across all 50 states.

A series of events in Washington, D.C. and across the country are being planned. New research reports, contests for youth and other events hosted by businesses and communities across the country will showcase the industry's role in the future high-tech workforce of America and in creating and sustaining high-paying jobs across the country.
