FusionFlight Inc. is an Aerospace start-up based out of Dallas, Texas. The company is four-years old and aims to push the frontiers of drone technology to a whole new level. Above all, the purpose of FusionFlight is to show that modern electrical drones are very limited to payload capacity and top speed due to the low energy density of conventional battery technology. Therefore, FusionFlight is working on the world's first Jet-Powered, Diesel-fueled, Vertical-Take off and landing drone - AB4 JetQuad. Currently, the JetQuad is a work in progress, but once production begins, it will dominate a large segment of the drone market. Furthermore, the JetQuad will demonstrate that, thanks to turbines, drones do not need to be cheap, plastic, camera-toys. Certainly, drones will become true industrial machines - work-horses that shape the modern world.

Science and Technology Advisor
Years ago, Eugene inspired Alex to look for ways to reduce the cost of sending rockets into space. These ideas now make-up the back-bone of the technology for FusionFlight jet-powered drones. Today, Eugene continues his support and advises Alex directly on technological aspects related to flight dynamics and control software. Eugene worked for decades in various software-based start-up companies. Eugene received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Belarus Academy of Sciences.
