With 32 years of experience at Aurora, Chief Engineer Clint Church understands both the company’s past and it’s future. Aerospace Testing International sat down with Clint to talk about what makes Aurora unique, what it’s like to work here, and how Aurora has built a track-record of taking novel aircraft from idea to flight.

“When you are doing something new and difficult, you have to expect it might not work. That’s OK, especially when part of the job is proving what can be done. Having said that, you always want programs to succeed. Engineering is an applied science and you want to make something that works. Aurora has developed processes and methods of incremental build and test that enable first flights to succeed.”
