He retired as an active test pilot in February of 2018. The Sabrewing aircraft can fly thousands of kilometers and can carry tons of food, medical supplies, water or even entire medical suites to the most remote parts of the Earth thus opening up new markets and new profit centers for air cargo companies. Sabrewing will have its first full-scale airframe completed by December, 2019 and will begin testing in January, 2020.De Reyes has a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, and has worked to test and certify some of the most advanced aircraft in the world for companies such as McDonnell Douglas, Boeing, Lockheed, General Dynamics and several others.
