Aeronautical Engineer

Hey there! My name's Richard and I work as an Aeronautical Engineer. Sounds complicated, doesn’t it!? It may be a little complicated but it is amazing fun. My job is to design and develop machines that fly. We create newer and safer ways to travel in airplanes, helicopters and even spacecraft.

Did you know that spacecraft travel at over 17,000 miles an hour? My car only goes 60! Speaking of cars, we are always looking to see how we can make our cars, trains and boats more aerodynamic! This makes them quicker and more efficient, which helps the environment as they burn less fuel!
