42 Years in the Making
The history of the development of the Transwing design concept is an interesting one. It began 42 years ago when its inventor, PteroDynamics' founder and Chief Technology Officer, was just eight years old. That's when he built his first RC aircraft. And he's been tinkering ever since, pursuing his passion for aircraft design, especially VTOL aircraft.
In those 42 years, he built numerous other aircraft and yet found time to earn a Master's degree in applied mathematics, a PhD in physical chemistry and do post-doctoral studies in nonlinear dynamics.
Our CEO is a serial technology entrepreneur with six public-company exits under his belt having had P&L responsibility for seven companies, helping generate over $1.5 billion in gains for investors.
PteroDynamics came out of stealth mode at the Uber Elevate Summit conference at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles on May 8th, 2018. That is when we introduced the world to our Transwing aircraft design, the world's most performant distance VTOL vehicle.
Our business model includes licensing the Transwing design to other companies that are passionate about the potential of safe, reliable and ubiquitous airtrans vehicles.
If your company fits that description, we'd love to talk with you!
