The NASC is responsible for the creation and maintenance of part standards for aerospace parts and components within AIA’s National Aerospace Standards (NAS) library. These part standards are recognized for meeting the high strength, close tolerance, and rigorous acceptance testing requirements of the aerospace industry. Subject matter experts from AIA member companies and the aerospace industry participate in the NASC to uphold its reputation for providing cost management and production streamlining value, along with the reliability that only industry standard parts can provide. In addition to the creation and maintenance of 2D drawings, specifications, and digital 3D models, the NASC is responsible for the review of and commenting on similar government specifications and standards. Committee members should be involved in the use, manufacturing, distribution, and/or testing of NAS parts, or use of NAS parts in product design and manufacturing.
