Vision Who are we? What do we do? • AIAA Technical Committees (TCs) bring together experts in their fields and given them the opportunity to exchange knowledge and get to know their colleagues from around the globe. • Supports and organizes technical conferences • Works with K-12 students to promote an interest in engineering education • Serve as journal and book reviewers • Develops and judge college student design papers • Judges Design Build Fly (DBF) reports and act as officials at the fly-off. • Administers the Aircraft Design Award The Aircraft Design Technical Committee emphasizes the importance of aircraft design as a vital segment of U.S. industry and defense. In this regard, members are tasked to organize, produce, present, and publish documents that show the direction and state-of-the-art of aircraft design. The committee organizes and conducts conferences, lectures, discussions, assessment groups, and workshops to foster and improve the understanding of future aircraft requirements, technology needs, new opportunities, and efficient, effective processes for new aircraft designs. Additionally, the committee interfaces with other committees and groups to foster development of young aircraft designers’ and recognition of outstanding individuals and achievements in the field. The ADTC is made up of representatives from all 3 areas and includes international members, young professionals and welcome liaisons from other TC’s. When did you know you wanted to work in aerospace? For some it was a specific moment, for others it was a gradual realization that space and flight had captured their imagination and wouldn’t let go.
