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.
