Tia tells students to do their research, and be open to what is out there. "There are a lot of great opportunities out there. Don't ignore the passion you feel on the inside," she says. Passion for what they do is an attribute both Tia and Courtney have. They also share a positive attitude, solid work ethic, and a desire to always go above and beyond. Courtney says these are important qualities for those starting out, and tells young women (and men) when talking about their ca- reers, "Hard work can't be replaced. I can teach you how to be a designer, but you can't teach work ethic. It's also important to be forward thinking and asking, 'How can we do better?'" Gulfstream has a long and storied history of building best-in-class aircraft, and the manufacturer touts the interior cabin design is a hallmark of the Gulfstream ownership experience. Both Tia and Courtney are ex- amples of how dedication, hard work, and passion for what they do allow the company to deliver the best pos- sible aircraft and customer experience. Whether it's de- signing a calming space where customers can rest and relax, or reviewing a 3D template to make sure all com- ponents and design elements fit perfectly in place, both women take immense pride in what they do. The re- sults clearly show in the finished product. Tia concludes, "It's a really good feeling when you are standing on the ramp watching an airplane take off with its new interior and think, we worked together and did that." ✈ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

" The aircraft cabin i our set. It is a blank canvas that gets transformed into what the customer wants." The interior cabin design is a hallmark of the Gulfstream ownership experience in building a best-in-class aircraft.
