The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) is an American trade association representing manufacturers and suppliers of civil, military, and business aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, space systems, aircraft engines, missiles, material, and related components, equipment, services, and information technology in the United States. It also co-sponsors, with the National Association of Rocketry, the Team America Rocketry Challenge, an annual competition for high school students. Member corporations give awards and sponsors.
In 2012, the organization refused an application from Airbus for its parent company EADS, which is 15-percent owned by the French government, to join. Its CEO Marion Blakey commented at the time, ""We are here to represent the interests of the United States (industry) and we do not believe it's appropriate for foreign governments to use AIA to lobby our own".
