Michael Greenberg, a former Schlumberger executive, has joined the Bye Energy, Inc. Strategic Advisory Council. The company is developing an electric propulsion system for GA aircraft.
Greenberg is a senior executive with international experience leading fast-growth technical organizations. While at Schlumberger, he held a variety of senior management and executive roles in human resource management, engineering project management, quality management, change management, operations and marketing communications. Greenberg holds an electrical engineering degree and an MBA from Cornell University and is a licensed general aviation pilot. He currently serves as President and CEO of Broomfield Education Group and Academic Achievement Group.
“The Green Flight Program is a terrific example of how innovative technology and strategic business development can be coupled together to solve real problems,” Greenberg said. “With rising energy costs and an increased focus on clean and efficient energy use, the impressive improvements in performance that Bye Energy has built into the electric propulsion system of its Cessna 172 prototype aircraft could not have come at a better time. Bye Energy’s strong management and engineering team have their finger on the right technology at the right cost at the right time, and I look forward to working with the Bye Energy team as they move into the implementation and production phases of the Green Flight Program.”
Formed in 2008, Bye Energy is developing an electric and electric-hybrid propulsion system for light general aviation aircraft, announcing the “Green Flight Program” last year. The company is also collaborating with Cessna to design and develop an electric propulsion system for a Cessna 172 proof of concept aircraft. Bye Energy has two Denver area facilities, with headquarters at Centennial Airport and a research and development facility provided by Beyond the Edge at Rocky Mountain Metro Airport.
