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.
