many engineers may “specialize” in a certain “aerospace product” like commercial aircraft, military fighter jets, helicopters, spacecraft, and missiles or rockets, (Bls.gov). Many engineers are employed by companies that contract for the Department of Defense. Aerospace engineering began with the Wright brothers, “the fathers of modern manned flight,” (Britannica.com). World War I was the first boom for aircraft. Aircraft were “designed and constructed for specific military missions,” (Britannica.com).
