Capt. Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann, Boeing’s chief pilot for its 777 program, will discuss development of the aircraft and its future derivatives at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 7th, in the LAX Im- perial Terminal, as part of the Flight Path Museum Speaker Series.
The public is invited to attend.
Darcy-Hennemann is responsible for engineering flight test activities related to all Boeing 777 aircraft models, according to Flight Path president Rowena Ake. This includes working with Boeing engineers on design of upcoming 777 derivatives.
“Our speaker will provide us with a first-hand account of how a commercial aircraft is developed and tested,” said Ake. “This promises to be one of our most informative Speaker Series programs.”
Darcy-Hennemann was named chief pilot for the 777 program in January last year, having served previously as the program’s senior engineering pilot. She joined Boeing in 1974 and has been a member of the 777 team since its inception.
Awards and honors she has received include the Aviation Week Laurels Award for Leadership, Women in Aerospace Outstanding Leadership Award, Women in Communications Award and honors from the Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots.
LAX Imperial Terminal is at 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Los Angeles.
Flight Path is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission and parking are free.
