About Aviation Committees

AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC are aviation industry activities organized by ARINC Industry Activities, an industry program of SAE Industry Technologies Consortia (ITC), to establish consensus technical standards, known globally as ARINC Standards, and develop shared technical solutions that no one organization could accomplish independently.

ARINC Standards and collaborative solutions improve cost effectiveness, increase productivity, and reduce life-cycle costs for airlines and their partners in the avionics, cabin system, and flight simulation and training segments of the aviation industry.

AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC are global technical activities comprised of airlines and other organizations eligible to be Member Organizations with additional support provided by Associate Member Organizations. Find out more about AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC Memberships and Associate Membership.

Each activity operates under the leadership of aviation industry committees elected by the AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC Member Organizations in accordance with the Terms of Reference (TOR) approved by SAE ITC. The activity leadership committees—i.e., AEEC Executive Committee, AMC Steering Committee, and FSEMC Steering Committee—include representatives of more than 50 airlines and aviation organizations.

The leadership committees are responsible for providing oversight to their respective activity including defining the work program, planning for the major technical meetings, monitoring progress in accomplishing the technical projects, and approving the resulting ARINC Standards.

ARINC Industry Activities (IA) serves as the secretariat for the AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC. As secretariat, IA arranges the major international meetings held annually, schedules and reports on the results of subcommittee and working group meetings, and publishes the ARINC Standards and other technical products that result from the work of three activities. An unbiased and objective secretariat is essential to the success of the AEEC, AMC, and FSEMC.
