Welcome to the IAAC

I am honored and humbled to lead the International Aerospace Accrediting Commission (IAAC) as its first executive director. I am delighted to welcome you to consider this new accrediting association for your aviation training interests, whether you are a prospective institution wondering what we’re all about, a prospective student looking for an accredited school to attend, or anyone else looking into aerospace issues. We thank you for your interest!

The field of aviation training and education has a remarkable story to tell. We are eager to help each and every school in this arena participate in an accrediting process structured to enhance and strengthen its contribution to training skilled, competent pilots, mechanics and others who work in aerospace careers. I hope your visit to our website underscores our commitment to institutional excellence, and a high quality and thoughtful process designed to elevate and encourage schools with outstanding student centered programs. 

This is a time in history, and in aviation careers in particular, that looks like no other. We need good, well-trained men and women to fill the growing employment demand in this space. In addition, while acknowledging all of the challenges at hand, we are excited to help our schools work through them together. 

I’m looking forward to collaborating with our schools, with state and federal regulators and with other key publics to nurture and support high quality aerospace training.


Thomas A. Kube
Executive Director
