I am very proud to announce that Marc Zeitlin has accepted an offer to work as a Design Engineer at Scaled Composites in Mojave, CA.

 

I have had the distinct pleasure of flying with Marc (learning from actually) on a few occassions. I recall a point where Marc was explaining how the rate of climb indicator worked -- not just how to read/understand it, but how it worked inside -- in case you needed to build one yourself. At that point I suspected he was a couple magnitudes smarter than most, certainly including myself.

 

I had once hoped that Nat, and now Aircraft Spruce, would have appointed Marc to be responsible for the design of the Cozy Mark V. It's good for Marc that didn't happen, because who knows what might happen now with Marc and Burt working in the same building.

 

My hat's off to you Marc -- congratulations, well done, and it's about time! You da man!

 

:cool:

Wow!

 

Congratulations Marc! I hope that doesn't mean that you will stop answering questions and giving good advice. Even needling me when I come up with half-baked newbie logic.

 

Now I'm kinda bummed. That's one less flying canard in my sorta-near geographic area.

 

Still, this is great news!

Do you need a Flightline Chair, or other embroidered aviation accessory?

Congratulations Marc! I hope that doesn't mean that you will stop answering questions and giving good advice.

There are a couple theories here:

  • Burt Rutan will assume all of Marc's Cozy-related responsibilities, or
  • Since it is a physiological impossibility for Marc NOT to answer questions from the unenlightened, he will continue working two jobs (Scaled and Cozy support)
Pick one. :)

 

Even needling me when I come up with half-baked newbie logic.

Keep the thoughts coming Len -- I don't consider them half-baked, but more like hot chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven.

 

Now I'm kinda bummed. That's one less flying canard in my sorta-near geographic area.

Well... better start working on filling the void! :)
