Note to Editors: While many people think of NASA as a visually-exciting agency that flies impressive-looking space shuttles and research aircraft that are exotic to see, there’s also much to be heard.

At NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center located on Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., radio features about exciting flight test projects can be sweetened with the sounds of the flightline as high-performance jet engines spin to life with a whine, or solar-powered aircraft whisper past on electric motors. Sonic booms shake this desert research facility daily. And the cerebral headphone chatter of control-room engineers and test pilots during an experimental Active Aeroelastic Wing flight makes a dramatic counterpoint to narration about high-stakes flight research.

The public affairs staff at Dryden can assist radio producers with story ideas, interviews, and on-site visits. Call (661) 276-3449 and ask for Fred Johnsen or Alan Brown to discuss story possibilities.
