The following characteristics of organizations that operate in the aviation and/or space sector are investigated in this study: market structure, products, contractor classification, industry size, or-ganizational architecture and performance.This paper was presented May 23, 2008, at the 18th International Conference of the International Trade and Finance Association, meeting at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal.Keywords: Aerospace Organization, Aviation, Corporate Governance, Space, Strategy
