The AerospaceNet project was created by Tim Huddleston. Mr. Huddleston is Chairman of the Board of Directors for the National Aerospace Development Center (NADC), a national nonprofit aerospace advocacy organization. He is the former Executive Director of the Aerospace States Association (ASA). Prior to becoming Executive Director of ASA, Mr. Huddleston was the Director of the Office of Aerospace Policy where he was responsible for advancing aerospace research, commerce, workforce development and education in Alabama.
The AerospaceNet project is a non-profit project directed to the aerospace community. Mr. Huddleston developed the idea for the AerospaceNet web portal over a period of time when he noticed a need for a free resource of information to the aerospace community on the internet.
The web portal will include:
• Who’s Who Directory for professionals that want to be known in the aerospace industry
• Company Directory that will list the many companies in the aerospace industry
• News Feed that will have news about professionals, companies, or any current news relating to aerospace
• Aerospace resources such as publications, education, employment opportunities, merchandise, and events
• Features such as stories of featured aerospace professionals, companies, and future aviation and spaceflight projects, programs, and plans.
The first release, completed this semester by our Capstone team, will include the Who’s Who Directory, Company Directory, and the News Feed. These initial pieces will be the foundation for AerospaceNet, while the remaining sections will be part of subsequent releases. This is an important project for the aerospace community and our team is eager to be part of the process of its creation.
I am excited to help create what will hopefully be a valuable resource to the aerospace industry. We have an excellent team that I believe will produce an excellent product and give future Capstone teams an opportunity to complete a great second release of AerospaceNet.
