Job Description

Crown is a leader in planning and implementing aerospace and advanced transportation services, with a focus on advanced air mobility (AAM). We have more than three decades of experience in developing strategy, exploring concepts, assessing technologies, developing use cases, and projecting economic impacts for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and State departments of transportation.
