WireMasters is working closely with Kallman Worldwide this year as we will be exhibiting in the U.S. International Pavilion during the show. Last week Kallman made the announcement that they are partnering with Al Worden who will be participating in numerous official events, including the Pavilion opening ceremonies, presentations and receptions. It’s been 45 years since Worden made his first flight to the moon as the pilot of the Apollo 15 Command Module. The graduate of U.K.’s esteemed Empire Test Pilot School has teamed with Kallman to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education — during the Farnborough International Airshow.

ASF advocates for STEM by promoting the fields of study and providing support for America’s most promising students. Kallman and Worden first collaborated during last year’s Paris Air Show, where the astronaut entertained and inspired thousands of visitors, young and old, with the story of his Apollo mission at “Aerogare USA,” the Kallman-produced public weekend celebration of U.S. innovation in aviation. “This year’s Farnborough International Airshow will feature an extraordinary cross-section of America’s aerospace industry, with highlights such as demonstration flights of the Lockheed Martin F-35 and a commemoration of the Boeing Company’s 100th anniversary sharing the spotlight with the booth-to-booth, nuts-and-bolts business of flight,” said Tom Kallman, president and CEO of Kallman Worldwide. “STEM connects it all. We’re proud to partner with Al Worden during Farnborough 2016 to engage and enlist our industry to promote education that will expand horizons for future pioneers.” Worden’s visit to Farnborough coincides with growing global interest and investment in space exploration and commercialization, particularly in the private sector, along with increasing development of space-based weapons to support national defense strategies. Worden notes these trends forecast a growing job market in space, and an imperative for peaceful nations to take the lead in developing the future space workforce. “As one of only 24 people to have flown to the Moon — on tax-payer funded flights — I can tell you there has never been a shortage of people who want to explore space,” said Worden. “As technology and financing become more accessible to private enterprise, more people will have the opportunity to not only explore but also work in space. My mission, and I hope it is shared by the industry represented at the Farnborough International Airshow, is to ensure that young people with the passion for this profession have the educational opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams.” For information about Al Worden’s visit and appearance schedule during the Farnborough International Airshow 2016, contact: Chris Meyer firstname.lastname@example.org +1-201-251-2600 x136 Previous Article Mil-Spec Cable Designs for Special OEM projects and more!
