The AIA Historical Archive

For nearly 100 years, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) has served as an essential voice for the aircraft, space and defense industries. During this time, AIA has produced countless volumes of books, reports and other documents that serve as a critical record of the history and evolution of an industry that has played a defining role in modern society. In preparation for AIA’s Centennial Celebration in 2019, AIA’s archives have been carefully digitized and, for the first time ever, are being made available to the public in a collection of high-resolution and text-readable files. The library below represents a collection of documents that embodies the breadth of the industry’s impact over the past 100 years.
