Bye Aerospace is creating innovative electric and solar-electric designs to build and market advanced aerospace products.
According to our Founder and CEO, George Bye, "What Bye Aerospace brings to aviation is exemplary engineering, research, and aircraft solutions to answer compelling market needs.”
The need: A compelling need for new pilots is growing according to Boeing and others. An estimated 790,000 new pilots are needed over the next 20 years – a 5-fold increase over the 150,000 pilots flying today. According to industry sources, 80% of new student pilots drop out of training. The #1 objection is cost. The answer: 20,000 new flight trainers are needed. The clean, all-electric Sun Flyer trainer is ideal as it dramatically reduces the ops-cost for flight training while replacing a small, obsolete training fleet of 10,000 conventional aircraft that averages nearly 50 years-old.
