The Flying Doctors of Mercy

Earlier this month our firm principal J. Bruce Camino participated in a humanitarian mission with “The Flying Doctors of Mercy.” Known as “The Flying Architect,” J. Bruce donated his services as pilot and translator on this mission to provide medical services to remote parts of Mexico.

We’ll be posting more information on the trip later this month, but for now, here is a link to a Mexican news story about the importance of these humanitarian efforts:


Flight Path Walk of Fame, Sir Richard Branson

Congratulations to Richard Branson for being inducted into the Flight Path Walk of Fame at LAX – Los Angeles International Airport.

Like Elon Musk, Clay Lacy, the Wright Brothers, etc… Sir Richard Branson is a visionary in aviation that has inspired us to continually think outside the box and focus on the possibilities in design.

As different as it may seem, aviation and architecture have extensive similarities in their practice. From vision to quality control, many lessons in aviation have served us well at Development One in the design of our facilities.
