Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the September 17th issue of Aerotech News and Review! This week’s special editorial focus is on Aerospace Valley’s own NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards, which is celebrating 75 years of helping the nation reach new flight milestones. Established as the High-Speed Flight Facility in 1946 under the umbrella of NASA’s predecessor organization, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the center has supported numerous flight test/ X-Plane programs; aeronautical technology development and demonstration programs; partnerships with industry, academia and other government agencies, and much, much more. (NASA Armstrong alumni, please share your experiences and insights in the comments below.) NASA Armstrong is a vital part of what makes the Antelope Valley the “Center of the Aerospace Testing Universe,” and we’re privileged to look at their past, present and future with you in this week’s edition of Aerotech News and Review.
