Who I look up to

The person I would say I look up to most is my father. Now I'm not saying that I'm a daddy's boy but he is pretty cool. To begin, he is not very strict, he is always very calm about everything. If we did "fight" it was just play wrestling to prove a point. We always joke about everything, it is almost as if he is a teen stuck in an adults body. Now, I don't see him very often but we still have a pretty good bond.

For career wise, he was in the career I would like to do and he told me what I had to do to be able to get that position. He always gave me inspiration even when I thought I couldn't do something. He would take me into work ,when I was young, even if i had to be at school. That has changed, now he doesn't want me to miss a day of school and always wants me to do my best at everything, and I get that, high-school is important what I do in it affects what I do for the rest of my life. I could go on but that's just a brief glimpse of why I look up to him.


Virtual prototyping is more complex and more detail than hand drawn prototypes. According to Gary Beile, ""I see virtual prototyping as the centerpiece for our whole development process in the future" (JR Wilson 1). This is important because it makes designing a plane much much easier. Also it reduces time needed to draw the design and in the long run reduce the cost of designing such planes. For the people who actually build the plane, every designated person can see what it is they are doing instead of looking at a 2D model.
