If you live in the Seattle area and want to get a world-class jet blast of airplane knowledge, you are in luck!

Bernardo Malfitano, an aerospace engineer (aka rocket scientist) who works at a Boeing, is the instructor for this course.  I happen to know Bernardo from my Boeing time and he’s an awesome guy.  Talented engineer, private pilot, photo journalist…  The course Understanding Airplanes is starting on April 14th, 2015.  It will be 2 hours every Tuesday evening until June 2nd.  Registration opens on March 15th, 2015.

UPDATE on the cost: Bernardo told me it is $50 to register for the course (to cover room expenses).  Still a great value!  If it was free you wouldn’t appreciate it as much anyway I bet.
