Utah Business Magazine List Also Includes ATK Launch
Groen Brothers Aviation, Inc. --
based in Salt Lake City, UT -- recently announced Utah Business
Magazine has selected the gyroplane development company for
inclusion in their 2007 High Tech 20 list.
"Utah has much to be proud of regarding the quality and
magnitude of its high technology industry," said GBA Chairman,
President & CEO David Groen. "We are honored to be included in
such a prestigious group."
The selection places GBA in some high-flying company. Others
chosen for the High Tech 20 list were: ATK Launch Systems Group,
rocket motor manufacturers; GoEngineer, design software leader; and
WorldHeart Corporation, manufacturer of the life-prolonging Levacor
Ventricular Assist Device (VAD).
Groen Brothers Aviation was also recently featured on the front
page of the Money section of the Salt Lake Tribune. In a two page
article titled "Looking to go Vertical," the Tribune focused on
GBA’s contract with the US Department of Defense Advanced
Research Project Agency (DARPA) to design and build a combat search
and rescue aircraft.
GBA reports Phase I of that project is nearing completion. The
GBA-led team includes aircraft manufacturer Adam Aircraft, turbine
engine manufacturer Williams International (both with production
facilities in Utah) and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Groen Brothers Aviation, Inc. has been developing gyroplane
technology since 1986. Powered by a Rolls-Royce gas turbine engine,
GBA developed the world's first commercially viable modern
gyroplane -- the first "autogiro" to utilize a jet engine -- the
Hawk 4 Gyroplane.
