Project Management Team

If I were to describe it, I would say it’s a wonderfully engaging machine, it’s beautiful, and it’s for real, it’s not a museum piece, it’s a functional bird, built to the highest standards of quality and safety in the aviation industry by some of the best professionals in the world. It’s simply magnificent.
