Activities of AAIA
The AAIA is lead by a volunteer board of directors and is coordinated by an executive director. Communications with members and the public are primarily through this website or e-mail. Any aerospace company with a physical presence in Alabama may be eligible to join.
Companies with an Alabama presence working in or supplying goods or services to the aerospace industry are eligible to apply for membership. The annual dues are based on firm size measured by the number of employees working in Alabama.
