Revolution.Aero debuts first ever Pitch@NBAA
The fourth aviation revolution is upon us, and business aviation professionals are vying to pitch their products to bring – among other things – comprehensive booking platforms, digitisation and eVTOLs into reality.
This is why five companies took to the stage this week at NBAA in Las Vegas for the first ever Pitch@Revolution event to pitch their start-ups to a panel of investors. Paul Malicki and his real-time charter booking platform Flapper secured the judges vote.
Even the audience had their say. Voting separately, the delegates decided that MRO Insider’s Andy Nixon was the company most worth investing in. MRO Insider provides hassle-free aircraft maintenance comparison service.
The other companies and speakers that took part in Pitch were: Stephen Cook representing CFC AirCar – a mass produced affordable VTOL; Bruno Mombrinie representing MetroHop – a fixed wing all-weather aircraft to carry both passengers and cargo; and Neil Capano representing YonderWest Aero – which offers operations and scheduling solutions for Part 91 operators.
The panel of judges comprised of Jim Lockheed from JetBlue Technology Ventures, Brian Flynn from DiamondStream Partners, and NBAA’s own Mike Nichols. The session was also chaired by Revolution.Aero’s Editor in Chief Alasdair Whyte.
The next Revolution.Aero event will be Revolution.Aero Europe on 17-18 March at the Royal Garden Hotel in London. If you are interested in pitching your start-up at this conferences Pitch@Revolution session, click here to sign up.
