Astronautics’ president rises to challenge of avionics industry: Chad Cundiff (Video)
Chad Cundiff has lived all over the country, so it’s no surprise that he feels at home in the sky.
Cundiff, president of Astronautics Corp. of America in Milwaukee, learned to fly as a teenager from his father, an airline pilot for TWA. That early exposure to aviation ignited a passion for the field, and led Cundiff to study aerospace engineering in college. A career spanning many of the biggest names in the industry, such as Boeing and UTC Aerospace Systems, brought him to Milwaukee to lead Astronautics in 2013.
