Today's guest is Maxime Gariel, Chief Technology Officer at Xwing in San Francisco. Founded in 2016, Xwing is on a mission to build the world’s smartest and cleanest air mobility system. They are transforming the way airplanes fly to make regional mobility radically safer, more efficient, accessible and sustainable than ever. Their software integrates sensors and maps with onboard flight control systems to allow regional aircraft to navigate, take off and land safer than ever before.

Xwing's work begins with converting today’s leading cargo aircraft into remotely-operated airplanes, so every regional route can be serviced reliably to give every person in every corner of the world improved access to all the goods and essentials they need.

Beyond the cargo market, Xwing plan to expand their technology safely to other areas of commercial aviation.
