Alexandra Florin, aviation technical standard manager for Wing, (Helsinki, Finland), will serve a three-year term on the ASTM International board of directors.

Wing, a subsidiary of Alphabet, has developed a small lightweight aircraft and traffic management system that delivers small packages directly to consumers on three continents.

In her position at Wing, Florin leads and supports industry standards for UAS to further enable drone delivery and its safe integration into airspace. Before her current role, she had been drones project manager at the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), overseeing the implementation of a regulatory framework for drone/UAS operations in Europe. Florin had previously filled other roles at EASA as senior expert development assurance, development assurance and safety assessment certification expert, and design organization team leader after being at SNECMA, now SAFRAN Aircraft Engines.

Florin became an ASTM International member last year, and is a member of the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) committee (F38). She holds a master’s degree in project management of integrated aeronautical systems from the Ecole des Arts et Métiers and an aeronautics engineering diploma from the École Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et d'Aérotechnique (ENSMA) in aerodynamics, thermic, and energetics.

In addition to her work at ASTM International, Florin is also co-chairing EUROCAE working group 105 for UAS. EUROCAE develops industry standards for aviation. In addition, Florin is a member of the traffic alert and collision avoidance system group in RTCA (SC-147) and the safety and risk management group in the Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS).

ASTM International’s board of directors is made up of 25 leaders from an array of companies, associations, and government bodies worldwide. Several members are based outside the United States. Learn more about ASTM’s board of directors at www.astm.org/ABOUT/GOV/BOD_GOV.html.
