I was invited to return to my first professional employer after graduation, NASA Langley to give a talk entitled “Aeronautical Entrepreneuring – A UAV Case History.” I covered background on Insitu, some interesting anecdotes and lessons learned. The format was to give one talk in the afternoon at the center in the old Harry Reid Conference Center, the location of my first professional meetings and presentations. In the eventing I gave the same presentation at the Virginia Air and Space Museum in downtown Hampton.
It was great to see many former colleagues and friends including Tom (& Nancy) Moul, Duncan McIver, Doug & Kelli Arbuckle, Dana Dunham, Marna & Leonard Mayo during social activities before and after. On site I visited with Dave Hinton, Carey Buttrill, Ken Goodrich, Dave Raney, Marti Waszak, Gene Morelli, Dick Huschen, Ray Montgomery, and many others.
