Miguel Castillo: Master Aerospace Engineer (1990), Escuela Técnica Superior Ingenieros Aeronáuticos, Universidad Politécnica Madrid. He is currently preparing Thesis to achieve Ph. D. on Aerospace Engineering from this University. Post- graduate studies in Science and Technology Management (1992), Universidad Carlos III, Getafe, Spain. Prior to joining Aernnova, 11 year career as aerospace structures engineer in C.A.S.A. (Getafe, Spain), Boeing (Seattle, USA) and Hispano Suiza (Le Havre, France). Following this structures engineer career, Miguel held several Technical and Project Management positions in Aernnova, former Gamesa Aeronáutica, staring May 2000. Professional interests include development of new aero-structures concepts, new composite architectures, innovative materials and process for lighter aero- structures, easier and cheaper to maintain and innovation on engineering process frameworks and methods.

Federico Martin de la Escalera is Mining Engineer from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, specialized in numerical methods and materials. His experience in Aerospace industry is about 20 years .
