International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Associations (ICCAIA) Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

Montreal, 26th September, 2022 The International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Association, ICCAIA, is today celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its creation.

ICCAIA was founded in 1972 with the goal of representing the interests of the global aerospace manufacturing community at the International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO – the United Nations body tasked with creating the regulatory framework for civil aviation worldwide. This mission continues today with ICCAIA representing a current membership consisting of AeroSpace and Defence Europe (ASD); Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) from the USA; Aerospace Industry Association Brazil (AIAB); Aerospace Industry Association Canada (AIAC); Society of Japanese Aerospace Companies (SJAC); Association of Aerospace Industries of Singapore (AAIS); Federacion Mexicana de la Industria Aeroespacial (FEMIA) of Mexico; and the Malaysia Aerospace industry Association (MAIA).

Together, the ICCAIA membership contributes expertise from over 3,000 member companies with over 250 experts contributing in ICAO panels and working groups. In addition, ICCAIA has recently also been granted Observer status to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – Congress of Parties (UNFCCC-COP), extending expertise into the critical climate change agenda.

At a special event sponsored by Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier, and in the presence of dignitaries from ICAO Member States to celebrate the occasion, ICCAIA’s Chairman and the current Director General of ASD, Jan Pie, said, “Over the past 50 years, ICCAIA has grown into global organization representing manufacturers and service providers from regions across the world.  We are proud to be recognized by ICAO and enjoy a constructive and productive relationship, actively supporting and participating in panels, working groups and events across all areas of aviation.”

The celebration comes the evening before the opening of the 41st General Assembly of ICAO at which ICCAIA will present several strategic and technical papers to further the work program of the coming triennium, further details of which are published on the ICCAIA website.
