Low cost

Low emissions

Our mission is to transform the aviation industry for the better. With non-crude based energy and a refined customer experience, we will bring green, private jets to the middle class within the next decade.

With an exclusive license from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, SavionAir is a step above competitors. Our technology for cryogenic liquefied natural gas makes us the first start-up working with LNG.

 

Why LNG?

The
Founders

Jonathan and Adrian met at M.I.T. while undergraduates in aerospace engineering. They later worked together in Boeing's New Airplane Product development group as aerodynamicists.  When they realized Boeing's R&D efficiency improvements (~1%/year) were insignificant compared to increases in oil prices (50%-100%/year), the Savion journey began.

Jonathan Gibbs

Co-Founder/President Jonathan worked as a researcher for Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt in Hamburg, Germany, the M.I.T. Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment and as an aerodynamicist in Boeing’s New Airplane Product Development group (NAPD). Jon holds a S.B and S.M. in Aerospace Engineering from M.I.T. and is completing a dissertation on Savion's novel Inverse Aircraft Design Method for TUHH in Hamburg, Germany.

Adrian Towsend

Co-Founder/Chief of Aerodynamics Adrian worked as an Aerodynamicist in Boeing’s New Airplane product Development group, in CFD software sales for Mentor Graphics and as a Thermal Engineer for Amazon.  Adrian holds an S.B in Aerospace Engineering from M.I.T. and a masters in applied mathematics from the University of Washington.
