As our need for air transportation and our desire for ever-expanding space exploration continue to grow, we will continue to rely on aerospace engineers to design and develop advanced technologies and new aircraft and spacecraft to meet our needs.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does an aerospace engineer do?

Aerospace engineers are responsible for the design, development and testing of missiles, rockets, commercial aircraft, spacecraft, helicopters, military jets and other products that fall into the categories of aircraft or spacecraft. There are two subfields within aerospace engineering, astronautical engineers, who work solely with spacecraft and aeronautical engineers who work with aircraft.

Aerospace engineers also work to develop and assess new and more advanced technologies for defense systems and aviation.

What kind of training does an aerospace engineer need?

Most entry-level positions for aerospace engineers will require a minimum of a bachelor degree in aerospace engineering. A bachelor-level program in aerospace engineering will consist of advanced mathematics classes, basic engineering courses and aerospace engineering classes.

While a bachelor degree may be sufficient to enter the field, most aerospace engineers choose to further their education and their career by earning specialty certificates or a graduate degree in a specialized discipline within aerospace engineering. Some examples of aerospace engineering specialty areas include propulsion, guidance systems, structural design, navigation systems, instrumentation and communication, aerodynamics, thermodynamics and celestial mechanics.

Engineers providing services to the public are required to obtain a license to practice in the state in which they intend to work. The first part of the licensing process, passing the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), can be completed upon graduation. The second licensing exam, the Principles and Practice of Engineering, can be completed after gaining four years of work experience in engineering.

What are the prospects for a career as an aerospace engineer?

In 2006, there were approximately 90,000 aerospace engineers working in the United States. Career opportunities for aerospace engineers are expected to increase by 10% by the year 2016, which is just below the average rate of growth expected across all industries. New aerospace engineering job openings will largely be in relation to advancing commercial aircraft technology and working on military and defense projects. (1)

How much do aerospace engineers make?

Entry-level aerospace engineer salaries vary widely depending on level of training and education, certifications earned and geographical location. The average base salary range for aerospace engineers in entry-level positions, such as Aerospace Engineer I, is $47,943 to $66,443, with most entry-level aerospace engineers making between $52,435 and $62,118. Median salaries by geographical region are $60,300 for the Northeast; Middle Atlantic, $59,600; South, $54,300; Midwest, $56,000; and West, $58,500. (2)

Students who want to be a part of space exploration and advancing aviation technology well beyond our current limits will find a career as an aerospace engineer incredibly rewarding.
