The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) is the trade association and lobby for the aerospace industry in the United States. It was incorporated in 1922 as the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce (ACC) and changed its name to the Aircraft Industries Association in 1945, before finally becoming the AIA in 1960. The main functions of the association are to provide information to member companies on market, legislative, regulatory, and technological developments and to try and shape these in the members' interests.
