AeroVironment's picture

An innate energy exists within us all, but it’s been our power to transform our energies into innovative, real-world solutions that has defined and differentiated our people and our company from the start. Solutions that anticipate life. Solutions that improve life.

It was on an August morning in 1977 that an amateur cyclist and hang-glider pilot climbed into the gondola of the Gossamer Condor and began to pedal. Designed and built by one of Time Magazine’s “greatest minds of the 20th Century,” AeroVironment founder Dr. Paul MacCready, the experimental aircraft did something no other human-powered aircraft had ever done. It performed a controlled flight. But while human legs powered the Gossamer Condor off the ground, it was a different kind of human power-our very Human Power™ to imagine the impossible and do it-that made that plane truly soar. 

Since our beginnings in 1971, we realized that securing the future would require more than clean power to drive our transportation needs, protect our infrastructure and sustain our resources; it would require that inexhaustible power...human power. Indeed, from building the world's first effective human-powered and solar powered airplanes to developing the world's first modern passenger electric car, that same pioneering spirit that inspired the late Paul MacCready has impassioned a whole new generation of AeroVironment innovators.
