President, VerdeGo Aero
Erik is the President of VerdeGo Aero, which is building hybrid electric propulsion systems for the emerging “flying car market”.
Erik is also Chairman of the Board for the Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation which is now planning programs and events around the Lindbergh 100th anniversary campaign. In 1996, he helped launch the XPRIZE Foundation and in 2002 Erik retraced his grandfather's epic 1927 New York to Paris solo flight. This epic journey helped jumpstart the private spaceflight industry.
Continuing the legacy, Erik is working to bring clean quiet flight to the world.
