Ken Krueger

Ken's passion in aviation started very early as he spent many vacations with the family airplane. Ken earned his pilot certificate as a teenager and then graduated from San Diego State University with a BS in Aerospace Engineering. His professional experience led him to both McDonald Douglas and Boeing. Meanwhile, in their garage at home, Ken began building an RV-6 and discovered that building an aircraft during his off hours complemented what he had going on at work. This made clear to him the importance of designing for ease of assembly and maintainability. Shortly after, Ken joined the Van's Aircraft engineering team, where he contributed to the design of the RV-9, -7, -10, -12, and -14. After a little more than 16 years with Van's Aircraft, a desire to create planes that appealed to alternative markets led him to Vashon Aircraft.
