The Phoenix Section of AIAA
The Phoenix Section of AIAA is the local organization of an international professional society for engineers in the aerospace industry. We have about professional 400 members distributed among the many aerospace firms in the Phoenix area. We represent engineers employed at such companies as Honeywell, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Orbital, and General Dynamics.
We also have academic representation via regular and student members at Arizona State University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. We have over 200 student members plus over 200 Educator Associate members (K-12 teachers).
The Phoenix Section has regular monthly dinner meetings and offers occasional field trips and special events. The Section has sponsored career days for high school students and works with such organizations as the Challenger Learning Center and Engineer’s Week in promoting science and engineering among our young people. We participate in public policy activities (e.g., Congressional Visit Days) and similar public outreach events (e.g., Yuri's Night).
