Interview with our Composite Engineer Nigel

Q: How did you get started in aviation?

A: I started in aviation in 1989. I was invited to a job interview through my friend, and I've been in aviation ever since. So in total it's been almost 30 years, a long time. I’ve been with MAC Aero Interiors since last September, on the production floor. 

Q: What's the most fascinating part about your job?

A: The work is varied. It's just not one thing over and over again. I can be building one thing one minute, for example a baby cradle, but the next moment I can be doing Part 145 work. Variety is the best thing. All days are different from each other, always working on different projects.

Q: What's one thing that even your colleagues might not know about you? 

A: It's a good question, some of the people I've known for a long time. For example Ian, who I've known for 30 years as we've been working in the same companies. I don't know, most people know all about me but maybe the fact that I play golf… and unfortunately, badly I must say!

Q: What's your fondest memory here at MAC?

A: Seeing that go out the door, that's a divider but it's very thin and it's also a safety equipment cabinet. It's a first one that we built and I made that. We have had two more orders since then but it's something that I'm really proud of. That gave a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction to me.
