WYP Aviation

wyp aviationAaron Wypyszynski, founder of WYP Aviation, pitches his wing board – a wake board like accessory – in the Shark Tank season 9 premier. The wing board tows behind an airplane with a rider on it! Essentially, it's a wing on a tow rope. Riders launch behind a plane and control the pitch and steering by shifting their bodies. Landing is usually by parachute, but a real pro can land behind the plane while still in tow,

Aaron became a pilot at age 12 an, when he couldn't qualify as an Air Force Pilot due to his height, he decided to design planes instead. He has a Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering and works as a flight test engineer in Alabama.

He got the inspiration for the WYP Aviation Wingboard from Kit Cloudkicker, a character in the animated Disney series Talespin. One of Kit's tricks was wakeboarding behind an airplane. The Wingboard is a bit more sophisticated than Kit's model, but the idea remains the same.

Aaron started the Wingboard project in 2013 with 1/10th scale prototypes. The product is currently in “phase three,” a full size prototype that he tests in a wind tunnel. It's unsure when, or if, the product will ever be available to the public, but if Aaron lands a Shark, it could be sooner than later.

Will a Shark think this business will fly?

WYP Aviation Shark Tank Recap

Aaron will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Sir Richard Branson, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on WYP Aviation will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
