Editor’s Note: Over the next two years, we’ll be hosting a series of GoFly Master Lectures where industry experts share advice, insights, and answer questions from anyone interested in participating in the GoFly Prize.

For the latest in our series of “Master Lectures,” we welcome Richard Golaszewski, partner and executive vice president of GRA Incorporated. Golaszewski has also conducted a number of assessments of technology development programs and written on the economics of aeronautical research and technology investments for NASA and other organizations. He was a member for the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board of the National Academies for six years, and was named a Lifetime National Associate of the National Academy of Sciences in 2003 for his significant pro bono involvement in its aerospace and air transportation activities. Golaszewski received a B.S. in Accounting (magna cum laude) from LaSalle College and an M.P.A. in Public Sector Management and Finance from the Wharton Graduate School, University of Pennsylvania. He was a military officer and helicopter pilot from 1967 to 1972.

In this session, he lectures about assessing new vehicle concepts and the demand for air travel, and holds a question and answer session. If you have follow-up questions, check out current discussions on the GoFly forum or start your own thread!
