NASA Aeronautics is taking off on a journey to jumpstart a new era in aviation.
We’re focusing our research in six areas that include work we’ve always done to make aviation more sustainable to you and the environment, but that add new explorations of how autonomy and game-changing technologies from other fields could benefit aviation.
We invite you to rediscover the fascinating science of flight; to look up when a plane flies overhead or look around while you fly yourself and realize that this is not the way things will always be (in a good way).
NASA is committed to transforming aviation by dramatically reducing its environmental impact, maintaining safety in more crowded skies, and paving the way toward revolutionary aircraft shapes and propulsion.
We continue to work with other government agencies to enable the implementation of the Next Generation Air Transportation System by developing revolutionary air traffic management tools that will increase the efficiency of the National Airspace.
