To achieve higher performance, Armstrong is creating a more open, consultative work environment that encourages new ideas and approaches and appreciates the value of challenging technical conclusions and organizational assumptions. Additionally, to attract, retain, and nurture a qualified and motivated work force, Armstrong strives to constantly improve employee satisfaction and participation.

At the Armstrong Flight Research Center, we value and require talented, motivated, and innovative employees. Accordingly, we are renewing our efforts to expand the definition of professional excellence to include leadership, management, and team skills and abilities, while continuing our primary role of advancing technology and science through flight.
