EAA Member Innovation on Display at GE.com
AirVenture video to appear through October 24
September 23, 2008 —GE is sharing the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh story with hundreds of thousands of visitors to its website in a specially produced video now featured on the corporation’s home page (www.ge.com). The 6-minute video describes the “innovation treasure hunt” conducted by several GE and Airbus engineers who visited AirVenture this past summer. They roamed “hundreds of acres of ideas” at the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration, aiming to harvest the spirit, creativity and innovation on display by EAA members. (Read more about the GE-Airbus visit from the pages of AirVenture Today online.)
Mark Neubauer, Lead Engineer, GE Aviation, says it all: “You won’t find a more creative, meticulous group of people to work with, and that is one of the most rewarding parts - meeting these people that share this common not only passion but this mindset about how to approach problem solving. It’s unsurpassed.”
The video also features EAA members Juliette and Roger Cosh of Rosendale, New York, who discuss their passion for homebuilding and their GlaStar project.
