Mark Manifold
Production Engineer, Walton Wheels and Brakes (Safran Landing Systems), Walton, Kentucky

How long have you been in the aerospace business?

18 years

How did you become interested in aircraft?

Father’s influence, and U-control and radio-controlled models when I was a kid.

What is your favorite aircraft?

Cessna 152. My father was a private pilot when I was in high school. He had to rent whenever he wanted to fly, and I went with him every chance I could. He gave me some instruction and let me take the controls a couple of times. I will never forget that feeling.
