Abstract : U.S. firms and workers lead the world in manufacturing aircraft, engines, avionics, and air transportation system equipment. In the process, they are making a major contribution to our nation's security and economy. Aeronautics manufacturing provides military power, high technology, high quality jobs, and makes a positive contribution to the U.S. balance of trade and the general prosperity of all American citizens. American leadership in aeronautics also provides global benefits through the economic and cultural exchange and integration made possible by a truly global transportation system. The growth in this industry, since the infancy of powered flight, has been the result of a strong partnership between the government, industry, and universities. Government investment in aeronautics has been focused on science, technology, infrastructure and military aviation. This investment, worked in close partnership with industry, provided the conditions for industry success in aeronautics.
