Skycar® developer, Moller International, Hosts AIAA Group
DAVIS, Ca. March 12, 2013--Moller International, Inc. (MI) (OTC-QB: MLER), the developer of the Skycar® and Neuera™ aircraft recently invited a group of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) members to a brief tour of Moller International’s facilities. While regularly scheduled tours have been temporarily suspended, shop operations were halted as the group of 16 young men and women were escorted through the display and fabrication areas of the plant.
“At the request of one our employees, we agreed to provide his fellow AIAA members with a quick tour of the facilities,” said Bruce Calkins, the company’s General Manager. “It is always invigorating to talk with young talented people, and especially so when they are keenly involved in aeronautics and the latest trends in design and fabrication” he continued. “It’s a win-win situation…they get to see and hear about our aircraft and we get to learn their interests, educating us on how to attract the good talent we’ll need for this project.”
“Watching science fiction movies gave me the motivation to join aerospace engineering in the first place. Getting the opportunity to tour Moller International’s facilities and to see what goes into the making of flying cars is truly awe-inspiring. As an engineering student it gave me the opportunity to recognize how the concepts I study in class are implemented in designing cutting edge technology. Moller International transforms dreams into reality” said tour group participant Megna Hari, UC Davis AIAA Chapter member.
Dr. Moller confirmed that the company is continuing its progress towards completing its potential joint venture with Athena Technologies, stating that “The Companies are actively in the process of exchanging materials as part of the due diligence required to move forward.”
