AIA Releases Annual Aerospace Report


The 56th edition of Aerospace Facts and Figures, a comprehensive statistical yearbook of the U.S. aerospace industry, is now available.

Compiled by AIA’s Aerospace Research Center, the book contains tables and analysis summarizing aerospace industry activity through 2007.  Estimates for certain series for 2008 and 2009 are also provided, as well as historical data on aircraft production, missile and space programs, air transportation, research and development, foreign trade, employment and finance.

Founded in 1919 as the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce of America, AIA began publishing industry production figures in 1925.  A statistical study of industry data was first published in 1945.

Aerospace Facts and Figures may be ordered online for $60 (Virginia residents add 5 percent, or $3 per book, for sales tax.)  AIA members receive a discounted price of $45, and discounts are also available for bulk orders.  Orders may also be mailed to:
