Rob Rowe is just as much at home in the sky as he is on the ground. Rob has had a distinguished career flying reconnaissance missions, as a military test pilot and as an instructor. He was also chosen to test the Red Bull-Stratos Capsule, which lifted Felix Baumgartner into space for his historic 24-mile free-fall to Earth at an estimated speed of Mach 1.25 (843 mph), breaking the sound barrier.

Rob has agreed to come down to Earth to give a talk Sunday, September 14th at the Museum of Flying.  The event is open to all museum patrons, and Rob will join fellow Princeton alums afterwards for wine and cheese.

Date: September 14, 2014

Time: 2:00 - 3:30pm (PCSC meet-and-greet after the talk in the "Douglas Company Boardroom")

Price (includes museum admission):

PCSC Members: $10 adults / $5 kids

Non-PCSC Members: $15 adults / $5  kids


For all of you wondering about the future of drone aircraft, Rob is sure to have some fascinating insights, as his beloved U-2 Dragon Lady is being targeted for replacement by drones such as Northrop Grumman’s unmanned Global Hawk.

A retired Air Force colonel, Rob's other pursuits keep him well grounded, including raising quadruplet children with his wife and operating a couple of small ranches. He says “specialization is for insects.”
