Apollo 15 command module pilot, Col. Al Worden, to attend Bahrain Airshow

Posted 18 October 2018 · Add Comment

In conjunction with the Bahrain International Airshow 2018, U.S. astronaut/scientist/inventor will address industry, military and student leaders, encouraging multilateral partnership to “break through barriers”.

 

Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot, Col. Al Worden, USAF-Ret., will make his first visit to Bahrain next month as a goodwill ambassador for the U.S. aerospace industry, particularly American companies participating in the Bahrain International Airshow 2018 (BIAS) at Sakhir Air Base, November 14-16.

Worden’s week-long schedule includes official appearances at the event, the fastest-growing airshow in the Middle East, as well as participation in coinciding military and student programs. Worden will address the Second Manama Air Power Symposium, which will be attended by Chiefs of Air Staff from around the world on the eve of the airshow. He will also make presentations to a gathering of the Royal Bahrain Air Force and a Bahrain University audience, all to promote multilateral cooperation in aerospace and space exploration.

The tour is being led, in coordination with event organisers, by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the United States representative and organizer of the USA Partnership Pavilion at aerospace and defense events around the world for more than three decades, including BIAS 2018. Kallman has partnered with Worden and a coalition of industry supporters since 2015 to promote excellence in engineering “from classrooms to careers.”

“As one of just 24 people to have flown to the Moon — only 12 of whom are still with us on Earth — Col. Worden’s first-ever visit to Bahrain creates new opportunities to encourage sustainable science, industry and business partnerships between our countries,” said Kallman President and CEO Tom Kallman. “His experience and accomplishments uniquely qualify him to address the dynamic engineering challenges faced by all industries competing in today’s global economy, particularly in aviation and aerospace.”
