Welcome to the home page of the Adelaide Section of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The AIAA is an international organisation with a mission to advance the state of aerospace science, engineering, and technological leadership around the world.

The Adelaide Section supports AIAA’s mission by:

  • Raising awareness and interest in aerospace developments through the presentation of topical talks to the aerospace community
  • Coordinating major events such as visits by international aviation and space experts under the AIAA Distinguished Lecturer Program
  • Cooperating with other local aerospace and engineering organisations to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes
  • Encouraging and facilitating student interest in aerospace careers through outreach and support of primary, high school and university groups

The Adelaide Section was formed in 2002 and is one of only two AIAA Sections outside the United States (together with the Sydney Section established in 1998). The Section works closely with the AIAA Student Branch located within the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Adelaide.

Section activities are coordinated by a Council composed of AIAA members from Industry, Government and University. Meetings are typically held every two months. Local AIAA members wishing to join the Council are invited to contact the Chair.

The support of the Adelaide Section by AIAA Headquarters and the School of Mechanical Engineering is gratefully acknowledged.
