“Achieving the impossible”: Bertrand Piccard & André Borschberg were both fully inspired by this mantra throughout their whole “Solar Impulse” venture, and they concretely demonstrated to the World that they could live – and most importantly – act up to their dreams.
As a matter of fact, SAFETYN would probably have never been created without such a pioneering mindset, combined to a very ambitious objective: Drastically reducing fatalities in General Aviation (Light Aircrafts, Helicopters, Gliders…) to a similar pace recorded in the Automotive sector over the last 30 years, i.e. TWICE as fast versus General Aviation’s pace over the same period. While developing these solutions, SAFETYN Team has drawn some interesting parallels between Entrepreneurs and Aviators – so called “Pilots In Command”. SAFETYN CEO and Co-founder, Arnaud Violland, welcome you aboard to discover SAFETYN’s unique Human-Centric Approach to Risks: Cross-fertilising Aviators & Entrepreneurs.
