Purpose: With the researches done on the mega projects of the country, one of the main factors of failure can be sought in their project management. Modern aircraft design and construction projects are complex projects known as megaprojects. In this research, a model for managing complex megaprojects in this industry is presented.
Methodology: This research is a type of combined research (qualitative-quantitative) and for this purpose, while interviewing aviation experts, the features of aerial mega projects are identified and coded by MAXQDA2020 software and then the indicators identified in a questionnaire from experts related to the project. Using SMARTPLS3 software, classification and ranking of components and indicators were performed.
Findings: In this regard, the designed model has two dimensions as features and management of the megaproject and 10 main components and 40 indicators were classified and ranked. Finally, the most important main component was strategy management.
Originality/Value: In this study, considering the importance of aerial projects and the fact that the country has moved towards the design and construction of native birds and several projects in this field have been defined and completed, the characteristics of complex mega projects in the aircraft design and construction industry are determined. And has designed for the first time an appropriate model for evaluating the management of complex megaprojects in the aircraft design and construction industry.
