Hello, fans and friends, and thanks for checking out the May 15th edition of Aerotech News and Review! Front and center this week, more proof that hard work and innovation never stops amongst our hard-working professionals in Aerospace Valley. Case in point, our friends at Mojave Air and Space Port, whose various tenant companies have been hard at work in areas as diverse as flight test, development of PPE devices to assist healthcare workers/ COVID Warriors, and space exploration – just to scratch the surface! So exciting and encouraging to see the great work being done and progress being made by companies of all sizes at this great facility.
