Posted June 26, 2019 11:31:08For a few months in 2018, I was making a career change and was searching for a career in aerospace and defense.
I had just started my second career after working as an engineering manager for a small aerospace company.
I also had the opportunity to attend the University of Michigan and major in Aerospace Engineering.
I started my career at Boeing with the company in the 1980s.
I was involved in the company’s commercial flight test program, the Commercial Jet Demonstration Program (CJDP), where I was instrumental in developing the 737 jetliner.
I graduated from the program in 1985 and spent four years as a Boeing engineer and an engineer-in-residence in the aerospace department.
At Boeing, I developed the 737 engine and eventually flew the 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft.
After I retired, I returned to my engineering career and continued working with Boeing in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
In 1999, I joined Lockheed Martin and was instrumental on the development of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
I led the development and production of the Joint Strike Fighters in the United States.
Then, in 2006, I received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama.
That was the culmination of the most rewarding and fulfilling year of my career.
In fact, it was the most fulfilling year for my career in the world of aerospace engineering.
When I started my job, aerospace engineers were not a particularly large group.
I thought that aerospace engineering was a relatively young field that had not yet reached the level of high-technology aerospace.
I expected that the field would continue to grow and grow as time went on, but it didn’t.
I would have loved to have seen the growth of aerospace engineers and their careers.
I am so thankful to have the opportunity of joining Lockheed Martin as the next president of the United State, and to have built a career with Boeing and Boeing-based engineering.
I will always be grateful for that, and I will never stop believing in the American Dream.
I look forward to working with the new administration of President Donald Trump.
