We asked the global aviation industry to nominate people under the age of 40 who are doing amazing things. We were inundated with responses. It honestly was very hard to limit the list to 40! However, we did, and the list appears in this week's Aviation Week & Space Technology. Congratulations to all 40 of our rising stars!
I figured you’d be curious about who works in commercial aviation and is included in the list, so I’m sharing the names:
Marc Allen (39), president, Boeing China
Justin Brownlee (34), MD of propulsion maintenance, FedEx Express
Keith Allen (27), senior navigation and controls engineer, Rockwell Collins
David Easter (28), senior instructional development specialist, FedEx Express
Luke Hayhoe (31), GM commercial, British Airways Cityflyer
David Lapeyronnie (37), engineering manager, pressure and mass flow sensors, Esterline Advanced Sensors
Timothy Lyon (33), managing director of domestic pricing, US Airways
Mike Moser (37), chief functional engineer, AE 3007 engines, Rolls-Royce
Aireen Omar (38), CEO, Air Asia Berhad
Justin Siegel (38), vice president of fleet projects, Latam Airlines Group
Marc Szepan (39), doctoral candidate, University of Oxford

Congratulations Marc, Justin, Keith, David, Luke, David, Timothy, Mike, Aireen, Justin, Marc, Leslie and Juan Carlos!
