Three funders, friends, company leaders, with different expériences, created MACH 7:
- Régis, a former jet fighter and helicopter pilot of the French Navy. He then continued his career in the EADS group (now Airbus Group), before reating his own venture.
- Johann, private plane pilot, in aerobatics and IFR training. He leads a company in finance.
- Emmanuel: ENAC engineer, développer of navigation software. He worked for big players as Airbus, Eurocontrol, or the French DGAC.
In their friends network, a team of 30 pilots, with different profiles, helped them to test MACH 7. They are instructors, student pilots, professional pilots, ULM, plane or helicopters pilots.
Thanks to the variety of this team, the objective was to create a product which meets the expectations of VFR pilots, being in the same time simple and easy to use.
