Alon joined ARA as Chief Engineer in 2019 bringing a diverse range of engineering skills developed in the aerospace, nuclear and semiconductor sectors. His experience includes roles at UTC, Cavendish Nuclear, Rolls-Royce and Edwards Vacuum and products as diverse as Concorde and microchips.
With responsibility for the function, design, maintenance and development of the extensive facilities at ARA, Alon’s remit covers the very best technologies developed in aerospace. This ranges from the classic 1950s engineering at the heart of the wind tunnel to the cutting edge data capture and computer systems which are pushing the capabilities further and further each year.
Outside work Alon enjoys building scale models on a wide range of subjects from aircraft, very like the ones we test at ARA, to science fiction space ships.
