A century as record keepers

The National Aeronautic Association celebrated its 100th birthday this year. Formed in 1905 as the Aero Club of America, it has been this country’s official representative to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, the world aviation record keepers, ever since.


The oldest aviation organization in the United States, the NAA’s work encompasses all areas of flight, from skydiving and model airplanes to general aviation, commercial airlines, military aircraft and spaceflight. It provides observers for many record attempts and compiles the data necessary to certify aviation and spaceflight records of all kinds.
