Our Huntsville, Alabama “one-man-band”, John Long, represents AVIAN as the area’s Regional Director and by providing test and evaluation support for the Joint Air-to-Ground Missile.
A former U.S. naval aviator and pilot of the H-53E Super Stallion, John really enjoys working in test and evaluation where he believes there are always unique challenges to overcome.
“I really enjoy the blend of field activity and office work supporting system development at the program office level,” John said.
When he’s not on the road, or in the office as a tester, John can be found instructing martial arts, practicing archery with his daughter, supporting his son in multiple activities and indulging in any type of gaming.
Although he has never actually created a formal bucket list, John loves auto racing and has the dream of following the Formula 1 Grand Prix live. Since that is prohibitively expensive to anyone other than the fabulously wealthy, he said he’d settle for a month or so in Europe for several races.
