Jonathan is the Founder and CEO of Airware. He began working on small UAS while studying electrical engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). After graduation, he joined Boeing to work on the development of the A160T Hummingbird, a fully autonomous 6,000-pound helicopter, which broke the world record for longest endurance helicopter flight. Jonathan founded Airware in 2011 due to both personal and industry frustrations with the inflexible and costly “black box” autopilots on the market. In his free time, Jonathan enjoys flying manned aircraft. He is a commercial multi-engine rated pilot with experience flying small singles up through twin turboprops.
