E. Brian Robinson, B.Eng
Founder, Chief Technical Officer
Brian grew up with aviation in his blood. He started flying when he was fourteen years old and started building his first airplane when he was only eighteen. Brian received his private pilot’s license through the Air Cadet program and has amassed 3500 hours since, with most of the flying time in his famous v8 powered Republic Seabee.
Adept with mechanical systems at an early age, Brian received his mechanical engineering degree from the University of Waterloo and is accredited as a professional engineer. Brian’s engineering career began with Baxter Travenol, maintaining and designing complex custom equipment for the production of intravenous solutions. He later joined Ethicon, the division of Johnson and Johnson that produced medical instruments, where he eventually was promoted to plant manager. Throughout his tenure as plant manager at Johnson and Johnson, his production facility received many cost reduction and quality awards, with Brian personally receiving leadership and manufacturing awards.
With unparalleled technical skill, and experience building aircraft for almost 50 years Brian is perfectly positioned to lead the technical team at Horizon Aircraft.
