About Alex

Hey There,

It's nice to meet you.

My name is Alex, and I started Project Wind Craft because there is something wrong with the industry I love. I grew up in the Middle East so I know first hand that the ability to fly eludes those who need it most.

Aviation, as it stands, is fundamentally cost prohibitive. That means even if you make more than 50 thousand dollars a year, which is more than many people make their entire lives, chances are you don't own a plane and you probably don't fly. So how has such a universal desire to fly freely only been realized by a tiny percentage of the population? Well there's a few reasons, the most notorious being the shear cost to fly frankly antiquated machines. The industry simply hasn't evolved in a significant way in over 60 years.

Maybe you haven't realized it yet but this is incredibly significant to your life. The ability to move people and things faster and more efficiently means you spend less time in a car that pollutes the very world you live in, we stop paying for roads that pave over our forests. And that absolutely devastating accident that killed a teenager in your community last week? That might not have happened. However significant that is for you, now think about communities who don't have roads in the first place and who's members die of preventable diseases just because medicine can't get there in time. We have the ability to fix the "un-fixable" problems in our society through something as simple as an airplane. But it's going to take a crazy ambitious, incredibly creative team of engineers, pilots, and mechanics to reinvent aviation. Thankfully, that's what we are and I invite you to join the movement by supporting the project on Kick Starter and through our store of aviation merchandise. Thank you, sincerely, for joining the movement to fly free. - Alex

Alex Taylor is a serial entrepreneur behind some admittedly verge ideas. Like Building 3, an initiative to blend an inclusive VC with an incubator and trade school to give talented kids the resources to have an impact. And an aircraft company taking on the challenges of personal aviation.

 Born in California, raised in Istanbul and currently hailing from West Michigan, he is constantly looking to push the boundaries of what it means to innovate selflessly. His passion has always been in aviation and he says sometimes he feels more comfortable in airports than his own home. In 2017 he was the youngest commercial drone pilot in the U.S. and has been building drones since he was 12. Alex founded Wind Craft in late 2017 to be the vessel for change in the industry he loves. In his spare time he still builds drones, kite surfs, and is an avid skier/snowboarder
