On Monday, January 27th TLG Aerospace was happy to attend “Aerospace Day” at our states capital in Olympia. The event was organized by the Aerospace Futures Alliance (AFA) and was attended by nearly a hundred AFA members, aerospace businesses, and numerous state lawmakers.
TLG founders Lynette and Steve Muenzberg attended the event to hear legislative updates on bills and initiatives, hear from industry executives, and meet one-on-one with state legislators to discuss strategies to continue to grow the aerospace industry in Washington State.
Last month members of the TLG Aerospace leadership team traveled to Las Vegas to attend the National Business Aviation Association Business Aviation Conference and Expedition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas. Attending this year’s event was President Steve Muenzberg, Director of Engineering Robert Lind, Director of Program Management Steve Nelson, and Program Manager and Marketing Lead Joseph Cutler. While TLG has attended this event many times in the past, this was the first time exhibiting at the event. We were also featured in the publication “Aviation Business Daily”, which was widely distributed at the conference. As a first-time exhibitor, our booth was given the privilege of being centrally located and allowed us an excellent opportunity to meet and greet numerous individuals from around the industry that we had never met before.
Planning for the Future
As well as meeting many new faces, we were also grateful to have the opportunity to speak with numerous previous and current partners and discuss exciting plans for the future. With all of the growth happening in the industry, we were truly on our feet all day and engaged in numerous in-depth discussions that have us very excited about 2020. As much as email and phone calls are a great way to check in, it truly was a wonderful chance to be to meet with industry partners. All this face to face time within the span of only a few days is something we look forward to every year. Viva Las Vegas!
But when you are in Vegas, it is never all work and no play. Some of the keynote speakers at the event were Earvin “Magic” Johnson and Ross Perot, Jr. The team also had a great time checking out the many wonderful static displays and other exhibits. Some of the highlights were the Personal Aircraft Vehicles (PAVs) and the beautiful Pilatus Aircraft on display at the conference center. Robert Lind and Steve Nelson also spent some time checking out the static displays at the Henderson Executive Airport on the last day of the conference. During the tour of the airfield, Robert Lind couldn’t help but take some notes on possible aerodynamic improvements that could be made to some of the aircraft on display. Once it is in your blood, it’s in your blood…
Overall the conference was a great time to bond as a team, meet with new and existing partners and learn about the current state of the business aviation industry. We can’t wait for next year in Orlando!
TLG Aerospace was honored to be recognized at this year’s Aerospace Future’s Alliance (AFA) Aerospace Summit as the 2019 Aerospace Company of the Year. The award was presented by AFA President and CEO Emily Wittman, for both excellence in engineering and community service. AFA was formed in 2006 to provide a single voice for policy issues affecting the industry and advocates for over 1400 companies through out Washington State. The Summit included speakers from industry leaders such as Boeing, Blue Origin, Space Flight Industries, AeroTEC and numerous representatives from the Washington State Legislature.
In her award presentation, Emily Wittman remarked that “TLG provides a high standard of excellence across multiple engineering disciplines”. TLG’s team of 40+ aerospace engineers and four in-house DER’s have experience working with over 100 companies across a wide range of platforms of aircraft and space launch vehicles. The team has worked on numerous challenging programs and has used those experiences to continually improve and develop cutting edge tools and methodologies.
TLG was also recognized for helping collect toys for AFA’s Christmas STEM toy drive last year. The toys were collected at the TLG office on Westlake Avenue in Seattle, before being loaded into an old fire truck and donated to community organizations such as Communities in Schools and the Birch Creek Youth Center.
TLG Aerospace will be attending NBAA – BACE Oct 10-12, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV.
We look forward to discussing how TLG can help companies needing FAA DER support and additional engineering capacity; and organizations seeking additional capabilities to conduct research and development, and feasibility and trade studies.

TLG Aerospace is proud to be featured in a case study by Amazon Web Services (AWS). TLG is leading the aerospace industry by utilizing AWS HPC resources to quickly run CFD jobs using >1,000 cores for models exceeding 100M cells.
“Using AWS, we aren’t limited in our ability to scale STAR-CCM+ jobs,” Engineering Manager Andrew McComas said. “We have the opportunity to go much bigger if we need to, and we will be prepared for very large computational fluid dynamics projects now. That’s important for us, because that’s the way the industry is headed.”
TLG Aerospace President Steve Muenzberg will be attending the NewSpace 2016 Convention, held at Motif Seattle on June 21-23.
The conference brings startups, established companies and government agencies together with private investors and technology innovators. The conference focuses on topics related to commercial space travel, not only in the present but in the long term future as well.
Charles Beames, President of Vulcan Aerospace, and Jason Andres, CEO of Spaceflight Industries, are included in a long list of speakers.
TLG Aerospace provides engineering expertise on a variety of commercial spaceships with loads analysis, aerodynamic analysis and more.

Cub Crafters unveiled the XCub on June 6, its second certified aircraft. The XCub combines the classic cub design with today’s technology and comforts, making it faster and more enjoyable to fly than ever before.
Cub Crafters unveiled the project with Part 23 certification in hand, making the XCub immediately available to adventure seekers.
TLG Aerospace assisted in the certification process of the XCub, providing flutter analysis, ground vibration test, and flutter flight test support for the project.
The XCub is the fastest Cub ever, able to reach top speeds of over 150 miles per hour. The aircraft also has a range of close to 1,000 miles, marking a giant step forward in the evolution of the cub series.
Cub Crafters was founded by Jim Richmond in 1980 as a way to restore Piper Cubs. In 1999, Cub Crafters began designing new planes, going on to produce seven different cubs.
