The Aeronautics Committee advises the NASA Administrator through the NASA Advisory Council on strategic plans, programs, policies and other matters pertinent to the Agency’s responsibilities for aeronautics research and development.
The NASA Advisory Council Aeronautics Committee’s advice spans basic research and technology applicable to all areas of aviation that are under the purview of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD). These areas include but are not limited to commercial air transportation, advanced air vehicles, aviation safety, and air transportation system technology research, development, and demonstration.
The Aeronautics Committee meets in advance of the meetings of the full NASA Advisory Council. Meetings are open to the public and are announced on this website, as well as in the Federal Register. The Committee’s members are appointed by the NASA Administrator and represent a balance of broad technical and customer expertise with members from industry, academia, and professional organizations.
