Folks here are some of the hardest working people in the world. They are proud to be a part of Aurora and take pride in their work and this shows on every aircraft we deliver. ‘Wild and Wonderful’ is not only the state slogan, but can be applied to the new aerospace technology that’s being developed every day here at Aurora Flight Sciences.”
