Our Founder, CEO and Principal Engineer, Robert G. (Bob) Borst, was raised in Carlstadt NJ, graduated from Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford NJ and Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken NJ. Bob had a distinguished 35 year career with Boeing designing control systems for airplanes, missiles, rockets, rotorcraft, and wind tunnels. In addition to holding or co-holding patents on several inventions, Bob had the honor of training commercial and military flight crews all over the world including Air Force One. Unable to reverse the Boeing leadership direction to discard precious long term engineering capability for increased short term profit, Bob left Boeing in 2015 as the last leader of the internationally acclaimed and highly esteemed Boeing Flight Operations Engineering team based in Seattle Washington. Bob is married to Gayle A. (Crews) Borst who was raised in Austin TX and Munich Germany and graduated from the University of Texas. Bob and Gayle enjoy spending time with family/friends, fly fishing, hiking, sailing, snow skiing and travelling the world. Bob and Gayle were active with Boy Scouts of America and their sons Erick and Dietrich became Eagle Scouts and graduated from Central Washington University before starting their own careers in business administration and law enforcement. Erick has a MBA from Seattle University.
