An Insider's view of Aurora Flight Sciences

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I look forward to coming into work every day, because the office is abuzz with excitement and innovation. Everyone is working on new things and pushing the boundaries of aerospace. The hallway chatter ranges from topics in advanced aerodynamics to when the next rock-climbing meet-up will be. I imagine this is how NASA felt during the space race.
