Emmanuel E. "Manny" Antimisiaris is a research pilot and navigator in the Flight Crew Branch of the Flight Operations Directorate at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA.
An employee of NASA contractor Integration, Innovation, Inc. (i3-Corps), Antimisiaris is currently one of the pilots of the highly modified Boeing 747SP that serves as the platform for the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, flying observatory. He also flies NASA Armstrong's Beechcraft B200 King Air and is a mission navigator on the NASA's DC-8 airborne science flying laboratory.
Antimisiaris first joined NASA as a Systems Safety Engineer, evaluating upcoming test flights and analyzing the hazards involved and mitigations to make those flights safer.
He transferred to flight operations as a navigator on the DC-8 in 2008 and has deployed on several airborne science campaigns with this aircraft, including Operation IceBridge over the Antarctic and the intercept of the Hayabusa space probe re-entry near Australia. He improved the mission planning process for upcoming flights of the DC-8 by incorporating automated flight planning and eliminating the tedious task of manually building flight plans. With many hours of 747 experience during his airline career, he was assigned as a SOFIA pilot in 2010. He flew several of SOFIA's "first light" and early science missions.
Before joining NASA, Antimisiaris flew various aircraft for several airlines, including 747s for Southern Air Transport, DC-8 and DC-9 aircraft for Airborne Express, 737s for American Airlines, the LR-45 for Flexjet, and A-320s for JetBlue Airways.
Antimisiaris was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Air Force through the Reserve Officers Training Corps in 1983. His initial assignment was as a navigator on B-52 bombers. He was selected for undergraduate pilot training in 1988 and returned to the B-52 as a pilot. He also flew the E-3 AWACS on more than 40 combat support missions during Desert Storm.
After service as a human factors engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH, he concluded his military career as a reservist managing Predator UAV production and deliveries for the Air Force Reconnaissance Systems Program Office.
Antimisiaris earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Human Factors from Rutgers University, Newark, NJ, and has logged over 10,000 flight hours.
We hope to see you there!
