" To encourage the development of high quality scientific, technical, cultural and human actions in the realms of Air and Space, promote knowledge in these areas and constitute a focal point for activities. "
Established in 1983 in Toulouse on the initiative of André Turcat, the aims of the National Air and Space Academy are the following: "To encourage the development of high quality scientific, technical, cultural and human actions in the realms of Air and Space, promote knowledge in these areas and constitute a focal point for activities." Its members, who come from all walks of aerospace life – pilots, astronauts, scientists, engineers, doctors, manufacturers, economists, lawyers, artists ... – all work together to achieve these essential goals.
In order to reflect the realities of the European environment, whilst at the same time maintaining the progress realised thanks to its French roots, the general assembly, in its session of 19 June 2006, decided that the Academy's official name would change to: Air & Space Academy.

An integral part of the Air and Space Academy’s activities, the documentation and information centre is fast becoming, with the collaboration of other players, a veritable activity and resource centre, a relay for information in the areas of aeronautics and space.
The Academy is composed of Fellows from European countries, ForeignAssociate members from countries outside of Europe; Emeritus members (fellows and associate at 75 years of age), Honorary members and Correspondents to ensure the link between the Academy and contemporary aerospace activities.
