David Faulkner
David G. Faulkner is the Rocketplane Global Program Manager / CTO. Mr. Faulkner leads the development of the Rocketplane Global suborbital space vehicle. Prior to joining Rocketplane he worked with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics since 1998. His last post with Lockheed Martin “Skunk Works” was leading the configuration development on DARPA’s FALCON program. There he co-developed a unique hypersonic vehicle configuration which was instrumental in winning the sole $100+ Million FALCON Phase II award for the company. Mr. Faulkner’s experience as a conceptual and preliminary designer extends to DARPA’s Quiet Supersonic Platform (QSP), Navy’s RATTLRS programs and other Lockheed Martin efforts. Mr. Faulkner started his career in the flight testing realm as test conductor on the F-16 and F-22 programs leading tests that often qualified as “High Risk”. Before transferring from flight test he successfully planned and conducted the first AIM-9 missile shot from the F-22 at the Navy’s China Lake test range. With this experience David brings a wealth of applicable knowledge and skill to the RPGobal team. Mr. Faulkner holds a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s in Aerospace Engineering both from the University of Oklahoma.
