NASA aeronautics has made decades of contributions to aviation.

Aviation generates more than $400 billion in direct economic activity, supports more than 650,000 jobs and accommodates more than 600 million passengers every year in the United States.

Aeronautics research at NASA is organized under the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, or ARMD. Its four research programs and testing facility program work to improve our national air transportation system by developing "green aviation" solutions. We start at the fundamental level by asking the basic questions first—"How do we do this?" "What will happen if we do this?" "How do we measure this?" "What's a more environmentally friendly way to do this?"

Nearly every aircraft today has a NASA-supported technology on board that helps the vehicle fly more safely and efficiently.

With world-class federal, industry and academic partners, we are creating the Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen. Our work will help find solutions for increasing the capacity, efficiency and flexibility of our national air space, and to help address substantial noise, emissions, efficiency, performance, and safety challenges.

Aeronautics research takes place at four NASA centers: NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, NASA Glenn Research Center and NASA Langley Research Center.
