From the International Space Station to Starliner, John Vollmer has worked for decades in human spaceflight and knows what it takes to maximize safety and ensure mission success in low Earth orbit.

 As Boeing Commercial Crew vice president and program manager, Vollmer and his team partnered closely with NASA to incorporate important lessons learned into the design, build, test and flight of the Starliner spacecraft ahead of its second Orbital Flight Test (OFT-2).

 Through the many hours of testing, reviews and rehearsals, Vollmer is proud of the resilience the Starliner team has shown and of their commitment to crew safety.
