Winn, Ph.D., P.E., FAIAA, FRAeS an Honorary Fellowship for his significant contributions to aviation safety, academia, the AIAA, and the RAeS. Honorary Fellowship is the world’s highest distinction for aerospace achievement, and is conferred only to those individuals whose careers, leadership, inspiration, and impact mark them as the most influential aerospace professionals of their generation.
An internationally recognized expert on aviation safety and accident reconstruction, Dr. Winn is a past chairman, principal and director of aviation at ESi, where he has provided technical direction and leadership for over 20 years.
