World's Largest Association of Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineers
Joins Call for Scientific Inquiry of UFOs
Pilot encounters, the need for more data, and public safety headline
UAP session at Annual AIAA Conference
19 Aug 2021
Since the Dept of Defense (DoD) released the Unidentified Aerial
Phenomena Task Force's preliminary findings in June of this year, science-minded groups like the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA) and Harvard University's professor-led Galileo
Project have joined the effort to explain encounters with unidentified
aerial objects increasingly reported by both military and civilian pilots.
Now, the world's largest association of aeronautical and aerospace
engineers, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
(AIAA), boasting an active membership nearing 30,000 aerospace
industry specialists, have joined that same push to study unidentified
Unlike the DoD, which is studying these events for threat
identification purposes (something the US military has done on and off
since 1947) or NASA and Galileo, who are both looking into the issue
for scientific reasons, the August 6th panel that took place during
the AIAA's annual convention had a much more prosaic concern in mind:
crew and passenger safety.
"We need everyone's help on this, and we just do it in a way that is transparent," said former US Navy Pilot Ryan Graves, one of the six
panelists to speak at the safety session and a first-hand witness to
the UAP phenomenon. "Because, at the end of the day, you know, like I
said, very pragmatically, you know, we're flying around objects out
there at 100s of miles an hour with people's families on board.
It's just a matter of time, frankly [before we have a collision]. I'm
surprised it hasn't happened already."
