The AERO Institute, NIA, and OAI are welcomed new AIAA partners.”

 

Susan Miller, executive director of the AERO Institute, said “The AERO is honored and delighted to welcome AIAA as a partner in our efforts to develop the necessary workforce for the aerospace industry. It is through collaborations such as this that future success can be assured.”

Douglas O. Stanley, president and executive director of the National Institute of Aerospace, added, “The NIA is proud of our decade-long partnership with AIAA in continuing education and outreach, and we are very pleased to be a part of the wide range of innovative course offerings in the 2013 Stand-Alone Course Offerings.” Michael Heil, president and CEO of the Ohio Aerospace Institute, pointed out how the partnership will benefit Ohio’s aerospace industries: “OAI is pleased to partner with the world’s premier aerospace professional society to bring AIAA’s outstanding short courses to the ‘Buckeye’ state. Ohio is a major aerospace research and development leader and these courses will help ensure that our workforce is prepared for the challenges of the future.”
