Boeing is a company of innovators. For more than 100 years, we’ve embraced big goals and tough challenges to change the future of aerospace. That same drive to define what comes next continues today in our people, who are committed to technical excellence.
You can see it in the innovation and development underway across the company, more now than at any time in our history. While these advancements require us to think and act differently, our commitment to rock-solid engineering will never change.
I’ve experienced this firsthand. As the lead engineer on a project earlier in my career, I watched my pilot friend climb into the cockpit of a prototype aircraft and fly it for the first time. He landed safely, and I exhaled with admiration and relief. Knowing someone’s life depends on your work is an unforgettable feeling, and it’s one shared among all of us at Boeing.
When an accident occurs, we feel it deeply across our company and it intensifies our dedication to designing, building and supporting the safest products in the industry. This is true with the recent Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 tragedies, which continue to weigh heavily on us.
We have no competing priorities when it comes to our values, including safety, quality and integrity. Together as a One Boeing team, we’ll create a stronger company and industry for generations to come—always with a focus on technical excellence.
In this issue you’ll read about what excellence means to our technical talent and how it translates to the advancements we’re making from seabed to space. With an unwavering commitment to quality engineering and our values, we’ll continue to prove the future is built here.
