Future Vertical Workforce

Registered for the event? Log in above to access the webinar link!
As newly-hired engineers embark upon an ongoing, broad education in vertical lift aviation. This education is critical for these engineers to become high-performing subject matter experts, and the ongoing world-class effectiveness of CCDC AvMC ADD in executing its mission demonstrates the success of this broad education thrust. The session covers education in vertical lift aviation, categorized into formal education and in-house (on-the-job) education.
