Goodwinds Composites: Putting a Helicopter on Mars



On July 30, 2020, Nolan Johnson spoke with Leland Holeman and Amelia Cook, the owners of Goodwinds Composites. While Goodwinds may be a small business, they still pack a heavy punch in the carbon fiber fabricating business. Case in point, the NASA Perseverance Mars rover mission, which had just launched as we captured this interview, carries a helicopter (named Ingenuity) in its payload and contains custom parts fabricated by Goodwinds.

Cook and Holeman detailed the process for working with NASA on these key helicopter components. They also clarified for Nolan how Goodwinds could be a part of the overall electronics manufacturing supply chain.
