Following his studies of Aircraft Systems Engineering at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and stations at Lufthansa Technik (VIP-Completion), Diomedes Innovation and Airbus (FPO), Jan founded the company together with Till Marquardt. Jan holds the commercial pilot license (SA: CPL/IR/FI; D: CPL/IR/MEP, ATPL theory credit) and is always eager to fly.
Having finished his apprenticeship and studies in electrical engineering and information technology, Patrick worked for several years in the electrical design of special purpose machines. Since 2017, he has worked as a freelancer on various projects in the field of automation. Patrick is an expert in software development as well as control and automation technology.
Starting with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Energy Systems Engineering with a master's thesis written at UC Berkeley, Jan finished his academic career and education as a research assistant at Hamburg University. Jan has worked on electric race cars, ocean wave energy as well as CFRP machining and machine learning in aircraft production.
