OCTOBER 2019 Winner
Staff Mechanical Engineer,
Leonardo DRS/Electro Optical Infrared Systems,
How long have you been in the aerospace business? 35 years
How did you become interested in aircraft? In my childhood, I closely followed the Apollo program, which led me into mechanical engineering for my college degree. My first employer after college (Texas Instruments) had a flying club. They taught me how to fly, and I obtained my private pilot’s license.
What is your favorite aircraft and why? For its simplicity and economy of operation, the Cessna 152.
