If you're in the
engine building business,
there's no tool
more important than
an AERA membership.
To maintain an edge in this technically-changing industry, you need resources you can depend on. AERA is a specialized network of professional engine builders, rebuilders, production engine remanufacturers and installers with the expertise and connections to get you the information you need, when you need it.
ASE-certified Technical Support
As an AERA member, you have toll-free access to three ASE-certified Master Machinists to help you find answers to tough technical questions.
AERA has developed specialized software to help make your work easier... PRO-SIS helps you find engine specifications with a click of your mouse. Shop Management Solutions (SMS) is a full-featured, Windows-based software designed to handle the business needs of engine builders, rebuilders and installers.
Membership Directory and Specification Manuals
Every year, AERA updates and publishes its Membership Directory. During the odd-numbered years, AERA distributes its Cylinder Head and Block, Connecting Rod and Crankshaft Specification Manuals. During the even-numbered years, AERA distributes its Flywheel Specification Manual. The membership directory and all four specification manuals are free to all members.
You will receive ENGINE PROFESSIONAL magazine on a quarterly basis. This new publication is packed with highly technical, application-driven articles that will help you and your business thrive.
In order to better deliver up-to-date information on a timely basis, AERA has established A.E.R.Aid. Roughly three times per year, members will receive the A.E.R.AID CD in their monthly mailing. In addition to the latest PRO-SIS update, the A.E.R.AID CD will also contain PRO-SIS (both Spanish and English trial versions), a trial version of AERA SMS (AERA Shop Management Solutions software), AERA manuals and the AERA promotional video.
