Fernando Alonso: "Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3"

Safety first is Airbuss mantra in all it does. Fernando Alonso has been central to this process for three decades, and he has a real passion for every aspect of getting aircraft from the design stage into operation. Over the course of his career he accumulated more than 4,300 hours of flight tests, and notably, he was key in the organisation and development of the Airbuss flight test campaigns. "You cannot do this job [without passion]. There is a physical connection between you and the airplane. I cannot imagine this job without passion." [podcast]
