July 16th, 2013

The Aeronautics and Space Academies gathered in a conference room in the Ohio Aerospace Institute for a presentation by Michael Heil, a distinguished doctorate as well as the President and CEO of the institute. He discussed his life and the experiences that led him to where he currently is today. He discussed his years of education as well as years as an Army brat. He talked about the potential areas he sees developing for the future of the aerospace industry and how the students in the Academies need to be leaders and take on the challenges. He graciously answered questions the students had about the aerospace industry, its future, and the different paths that can be taken for each student to find his/her own place in the industry.
