The Aeronautics and Astronautics Association of Romania (AAAR) has been founded in 2006 by a group of aeronautics and astronautics professionals, aiming at promoting the field of aerospace related activities.

The purpose of the Association is to reunite individuals and institutions interested in aeronautics and space, for professional reasons (such as engineers and technicians, researchers, professors, or students, labouring in the aerospace field), for para-professional reasons (such as suppliers of technology that may have, among others, applications in the aerospace field), or for personal reasons, related to culture or plain curiosity.

The Association promotes the collaboration to other associations and foundations with similar goals, and seeks to attract investments and funding from Romania and from abroad.
