Ashish Kumar is CEO and co Founder of Zunum aero. Zunum is making electric commercial aircraft a reality. They are backed by Boeing’s Horizon x and Jet Blue Tech Ventures. Which strategically means this new aircraft is backed by one of the two major aircraft manufactueres and by one of the more forward thinking airlines in the world. Not too bad at all!
When I first met Ashish I was really impressed by his ability to draw from historical datapoints that really show where big opportunity lies for electric aircraft and more importantly how this can affect the entire air travel ecosystem in ways that make perfect sense.
