"The Flying Man"
Licensed UAV Pilot
The story of INFLIGHT, LLC begins with Eugene Daniels, a drone enthusiast and former Network Engineer. In 2016, Eugene's passion for all things wireless led him to pursue a UAV pilot's license. His flying sessions over the Delaware River gained him local recognition as "The Flying Man." As he flew, children, single adults, and parents routinely stopped to ask questions about this, then new, technology.
As spontaneous conversations about motion, flight, lift, speed, repeatedly took place, Eugene, and his wife Robin, a certified teacher and administrator, noticed a recurring pattern. Many children lacked access to emerging technologies and many attended schools for which there were minimal resources available for technologies beyond, perhaps, computers and laptops. Through concern and investigation into STEM programs, INFLIGHT, LLC was born. It was created as a self-sufficient STEM program provider to help bridge the technology gap in resources and instruction.
Eugene is a graduate of Grambling University in Grambling, Louisiana where he earned a Bachelors in Business Administration. His work also includes extensive managerial and operations experience as a record- holding Area Manager with Anheuser-Busch, Inc. and multiple certifications as a Network Engineer. His career contributions also include work in research, development, and project management.
