Bibliography of Aeronautics (AIAA)

    The today known “American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics” (AIAA), founded in 1963, was a new society formed by the merger of two venerable predecessor societies, the “American Rocket Society”, which had begun in 1930 as the “American Interplanetary Society”, and the “Institute of the Aerospace Sciences”, established in 1932 as the “Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences”. The “Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences” published a remarkable work at the end of the 1930s, namely the “Bibliography of Aeronautics”. In this bibliography books, brochures and magazines from all over the world are listed according to different aviation topics. The following documents were published by the U.S. Works Progress Administration with the cooperation of the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences.
