In a post shared by Ace Academy (@aceacademy) on Jun 26, 2018 at 11:29am PDTThe news was greeted with disbelief by a lot of people, as well as fans who were looking forward with bated breath to seeing the aircraft.
A plane filled with the latest in aerospace technology and advanced equipment, that’s something we are not supposed to expect, according to some.
“I’ve always been a big fan of aviation, especially airplanes, and this was a huge surprise,” said one person who posted on Twitter.
“I’m still looking forward.”
According to a press release, Ace Academy Academy was formed in 2007 by two aerospace students, Jason Mancini and Daniel Schatz, to help young aviation enthusiasts pursue their aviation dreams.
The students had a plan: build an aviation business from the ground up, using the latest aerospace technology, but with a focus on mentoring young engineers and technology professionals.
The company has a focus in high-tech, but its primary focus is aerospace, said Mancinini.
“We’ve been working on this project for over a decade and have developed a solid foundation of expertise in the field,” Schatz told Engadgestoday.
“The partnership with Ace Academy is just another step in this journey to creating a company with a future of flying and space exploration.”
The press release notes that the company’s founder, Matt Schatz will be joining the company in August, with the aim of “exploring the most exciting new opportunities in aviation, with a particular focus on the next generation of pilots.”
The team also released a statement on its website, saying the new venture will focus on creating a new generation of aerospace engineers, pilots and technology experts, which it says will “build a world-class aerospace company with the capability to develop and deliver new technologies, designs and services to our customers.”
“We look forward to building on this momentum and making a significant investment in the aerospace industry with the goal of creating an aviation company that will redefine what aviation is all about,” the statement said.
