UAMN has been closely following the development of Manta Aircraft for close on a year. Along with other new VTOL start-ups, the company’s vision is not only exciting, but innovative and visionary.
Lucas Marchesini, the co-Founder and CEO of Manta, has a Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering, where his first creation, a light aircraft, was designed and built before he even graduated from University. After working at Pilatus Aircraft, he developed his expertise and knowledge via cutting-edge industries including Formula 1. His first passion has always remained aircraft.
