Our Story

The Company

Just a couple of engineers who believe in aeronautical freedom.

Our Origins.

Wind Craft Aviation was originally founded in 2015 in Alex Taylor’s basement when he was just 14. Under the name “Wind Craft Quads” Alex built, sold, and maintained unmanned aerial systems and in 2017 under part 107 became the youngest commercial drone pilot in the country. His connection to aviation was a constant throughout his childhood. As an Ex-Pat in Istanbul Turkey his love to fly and the lack of resources to do so lead him to drones at a very young age. That passion and determination persisted until late 2017 when he developed a new vision for aerospace, one where we can fearlessly implement new technology into aerospace to close the gap between the human and the machine, make flying more intuitive, practical and affordable. So Wind Craft Quads became Wind Craft Aviation, we built a team of over 20 pilots, mechanics, engineers and inventors.

Now we have our eye on you, we want you to have the freedom to fly, we want aviation to change and become more inclusive. We want this generation to be the first of many, who spell progress R-I-S-K. Wind Craft was founded on the dimple idea that accessible and sustainable aviation can change the world. And that’s what we’re doing.

Who We Are Today.

Wind Craft is connection with significance. We fight for aeronautical freedom among brands and manufacturers who fight for their bottom line and sacrifice their creativity and ingenuity in the process. We’re disruptors needfully reinventing in an era of complacency. We seek new ways to solve problems that save lives using our God given ability to create, to take risks and empower individuals selflessly using something as simple as an airplane. We’re unique, we started and operated for 9 months completely on a volunteer basis. Our engineers came to room 336 every Monday night because they saw the potential for a project like this to change the world. More personally, to change their world. We designed and tested our first prototype, Sally Jean, to objectively go after and solve problems. We sought corporate sponsors and developed partnerships that made Sally Jean a beautiful blend of home grown and world class. We exhibited at the worlds largest airshow and we’re ready to hire our team and bring Sally Jean to market in a way no one has ever seen before. The Industry is not ready for a company like us, but the market is. We’re bringing the ability to fly to those who need it most, creating dynamic solutions to solve problems in developing countries that will save countless lives and lift millions out of poverty.
