Professional Development

AAAE recognizes the value of the advancement of aviation through individuals fully committed to the industry.  That is why we are pleased to offer numerous professional development and certification programs, training opportunities, and over 90 domestic and international meetings a year. 

A.A.E. & C.M. Programs 

The A.A.E. and C.M. programs represent one’s dedication to obtain knowledge and achieve the highest level of professionalism the industry has to offer. All AAAE members are encouraged to pursue these programs to not only maximize individual career potential, but to also take advantage of this additional benefit of membership. 



AAAE has proven content that can help you excel in your career, no matter the size or location of your airport. AAAE meetings provide networking opportunities to help you make connections in the industry alongside top-quality information you can take back to your airport and use daily. Nearly 10,000 aviation professionals attended AAAE meetings last year.
