Gordon Ross

Director of Aircraft Interiors

There’s no fooling around in aviation. Do it right the first time and there’s no ‘close enough’ it has to be perfect. You have to pay attention to your job and do it properly, but you’ve got to have a little fun at work, too. I still get excited to come to work and look at the airplanes. I guess it’s in me.
