Tim Fagan – Director, Industrial Design & Head of Cabin Development, Aerion Supersonic
How long have you been at your current organization?
I have been part of the Aerion team for just over a year now, based at our Reno, NV headquarters.
What are your responsibilities within your organization?
I am directing the Industrial Design activity for the AS2 development and leading the overall development of the Cabin as an overall system and user experience. This involves defining the cabin configuration (sizing , dimensions, system layout) as part of the overall aircraft integration, the various ways we can arrange and customize the cabin interior, and defining with our internal team and our supplier/partners the individual systems that comprise the cabin: seating, cabinetry, lighting, cabin technology, etc. We are also planning the tools that we will need to meet with our customers to configure and customize their own AS2 aircraft.
Describe a typical day or week in your role.
One of the exciting aspects of Aerion is the breadth and variety of activity – we are building both a company and a revolutionary aircraft from the ground-up so there’s plenty of variation and collaboration with different stakeholders every day.
