“I am who I am because of model aviation. Early in life I became interested in aviation. I built and designed model airplanes which eventually lead me to become a Aerospace Engineer. I have worked at Lockheed, Boeing, Bombardier and Airbus. Many of the commercial airline jets in production today have been partially design by me. Without model aviation I would not have been able to contributed to today’s commercial aviation. The next time you get on a commercial airline jet, ask yourself where are the new engineers or pilots going to come from? Model aviation encourages kids to pursue careers in aviation.”
