Dan Kreigh
Dan Kreigh has worked as an engineer at Scaled for nearly 30 years, has been a pilot for 27 years, and a model builder his whole life. At Scaled, Dan has been a structural analyst and R/C test pilot, and has analyzed the structures of more than 17 different types of flying, composite aircraft. This is due to Scaled’s amazing record of producing an average of one new flying aircraft type per year. Dan’s most notable project was being structural lead for Burt Rutan’s SpaceShipOne, the first privately funded, manned spacecraft that won the Ansari X-Prize in 2004. SpaceShipOne now proudly hangs in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and a replica also hangs in the EAA Aviation Museum. Recently, Dan has worked on the Stratolaunch program, several other in-works Scaled projects, and Sierra Technical Services’ 5GAT (5th Generation Arial Target). In his free time, Dan is currently constructing his dream project of a 190 mph, 2-place, roadable aircraft. “Often, aerospace engineers that do not understand model aircraft, lack basic understanding for full aircraft.” – Dan Kreigh Biography from AMA https://www.modelaircraft.org/files/KreighDan.pdf YouTube AMA Expo Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOTTGm8iL6I http://scaled.com/
