     Ken's passion in aviation started very early.  Both parents were pilots and family vacations often revolved around trips in the airplane.  Ken earned his pilot's license while still a teenager and graduated a few years later from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering.

 

     After graduation from SDSU, Ken got a job at Douglas Aircraft Company working on the C-17. 

 

     Although he enjoyed working at DAC, affordable housing in Seattle made him seek an aerospace job at Boeing.  While there, Ken worked on the B-2 Bomber and F-22 project.

 

     Finally in 1990, located in their own home with a garage, Ken and his wife, Susan, began building an RV-6.  It was completed and first flew in September of 1993.  Ken found that building an aircraft during his off hours complemented what he had going-on at work. Moreover, it made clear to him the importance of designing for ease of assembly and maintainability.

 

     In 1996, Ken joined the Van's Aircraft engineering team.  The first project Ken helped to design was the RV-8.  After two years, he became the Chief Engineer and contributed to the design of the RV-9,  -7 ,-10, -12, and -14.

 

     After a little more than 16 years with Van's Aircraft, a desire to create planes that appealed to alternative markets led him to his own aircraft design company.  SKY DESIGNS ENGINEERING, where precision takes flight!
