I studied Aeronautical Engineering at the UPM and fulfilled my obligatory military service as a Lieutenant in the “Maestranza Aerea de Madrid, SAF”, that was my first professional job related to aeronautics. When I finished the military period, I began my civil work life at CASA, later absorbed by Airbus, in the field of flight tests, a job that I love it, and to which I have dedicated my entire working life, extending it to all the areas involved (Contracts, Procurement, Development, Certification, Production, Delivery, Maintenance, Servicing …)
I started working in Medium & Light Transport aircraft business line as “Data Processing & Analysis Engineer”, participating in certification and qualification activities against FAA, JAR & Military Agencies/Customer). In parallel I began my formation like Flight Test Engineer flying in “M & L” aircrafts.
After five years I said to myself: “I need a change”, and I perform a Department change and became an Operations Engineer associated with the Eurofighter program. This change gave me the opportunity to work in the most cutting-edge technological program in Europe, which laid the foundations for FCAS and other defence programs on the European continent, adding to my profile concepts such as “Multicultural/Multinational Sensitivity”, “Team Co-working”, “Different ways of work”, … in short, the knowledge of how people worked in Europe (MoDs, Industries & Universities).
After nineteen years performing these tasks, passing through the HO Combat Aircraft Department, I had an offer to become manager, always within Flight Test, and take advantage of the synergies of my experience in this domain. This proposal was accepted and in Apr 2009 I was nominated as Assistant of Head of Flight Test.
During this period “Technological Innovation World” was “added” to my professional life, in fact a new project was generated & launched by me and it was presented by Airbus, into patent process.
Additionally, in 2009, I began my official life as University Professor (UC3M) performing Master Aircraft System Integration (MASI) and Formation conferences and tutoring many MASI projects.
