40 Under 40 - the Business Aviation edition


This week's Aviation Week & Space Technology features the top 40 people under the age of 40 who have reached the top of their game in the global aviation and aerospace industry. 

We received almost 200 nominations from our readers, making it really hard to whittle the final list down to 40. It's nice to see so many familiar faces in the final list, which includes professionals working within defense, space, commercial, MRO and business aviation. The following made it into the business aviation category:

John Brutnell (36), general manager, ExecuJet UK


Carl Dietrich (35), CEO, Terrafugia


Joe Puthoff (36), chief project engineer, Trent 1000-TEN, Rolls-Royce
