This JakajimaTV interview with Ed de Reyes is a follow up on the previous interview with Ed de Reyes about unmanned cargo aircraft, runways, large drones with high payload, about Sabrewing’s own VTOL cargo aircraft, the Rhaegel, Certification, and more, hosted by Pieter Hermans.
Ed De Reyes is a retired U.S. Air Force veteran, serial entrepreneur and inventor, with several patents and patents-pending to his name. Several of the key technologies that Ed has developed are directly related to the field of aviation – including a patent for a unique liquid-nitrogen-powered turbine engine that does not combust any fuel at all.
In February of 2018, Ed retired as an experimental test pilot and flight test engineer, having worked for several companies, including McDonnell Douglas, Aerotest, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman, Cobalt, Elytron, and Moller International to name a few.
Ed has also served as the chief technology officer for a carbon capture and storage start-up based on technology that he invented. Ed has a BS in Electrical Engineering and an MS in Aeronautical Engineering, and has design, test and integration experience in aircraft propulsion, avionics, flight dynamics and VTOL flight test. Ed’s experience includes FAA aircraft certification, and UAV test experience as far back as 1979 on the BGM-109 Cruise Missile.
Manufacturer of the world’s first heavy-lift, eVTOL cargo UAV. Sabrewing’s cargo aircraft can fly higher, farther and faster than state-of-the-art regional cargo carrier aircraft, yet only cost a fraction of the cost to maintain and operate manned cargo aircraft and doesn’t need runways.
