Arlington, Va. (March 11, 2024) – Today, Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning issued the following statement outlining AIA’s space priorities in President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2025 budget:

“Space activities are essential to our everyday lives. From enabling critical weather forecasts, to revolutionizing U.S. national security capabilities, to providing a deeper understanding of our planet, space has never been more critical to our economy and national security,” Fanning said.  “The Aerospace Industries Association was disappointed to see the first drop in NASA funding in 10 years in the just-passed FY24 consolidated appropriations bill, threatening key aeronautics, exploration, space technology, and science programs. However, we are pleased the President’s budget request supports an increase to NASA’s current funding beyond the FY24 level and see this request as a floor for Congress as it deliberates next year’s appropriation.”
