Aerospace Nation is a site not just about aircraft or spacecraft, but about the people that do them, and the effort that goes into them. A parallel motive is to educate those on the outside looking in, and thinking of getting in. It can often look glamourous and awe-inspiring from the outside. The reality is different.. I want to make sure you get one insider’s view of what it’s really like. Many sites that attempt to educate interested people have vested interests. They want you to pay lots of money to come study at their university. They want you to come work for them, because they don’t pay their people very well and they’re desperately short of skilled staff. This site has no such vested interest.
