Voice of an Industry

For over 100 years, the American aerospace and defense industry has shaped the world around us. From the first flight to the moon landing, the impact of A&D is immeasurable. And the next great aerospace achievement is on the horizon. We are critical to the health of the U.S. economy and serve as a seamless, fundamental part of daily life.
