I'm a career flight tester with a mostly fixed-wing background. Have worked USAF helicopters, bombers, fighters, R&D, civil development and certification, and was chief of academics at the National Test Pilot School in Mojave, CA.  Am now in the eVTOL game. Have commercial MEL instrument, glider, motor glider ratings and getting a gyroplane certificate next. 

Am presently [April 2020] considering forming an open council focused on eVTOL Flight Testing. Would appreciate feedback on value of this.
