Flyte was born out of the co-founders’ passion for innovative modern mapping solutions towards providing meaningful understanding of airspace with complexities removed.
From our office space in Belfast City Centre, the maps Flyte enable pilots around the world to create, will ultimately ensure safety and order as increasing numbers of drones take to the skies above.
Kerr MacKinnon: Co-founder and COO
Matthew Bradley: Co-founder and CEO
Kerr has had an affinity towards geography and mapping since his teenage years through his passion for the outdoors which continues to this day. After studying Environmental Geography, he obtained an MSc in Geographic Information Science at the University of Edinburgh.
This expanded Kerr’s expertise in location based data and technology. Of particular interest was the capture and analysis of aerial imagery through remote sensing; realising the potential drones offer.
Matthew started flying manned aircraft at the age of 13 with the RAF, and from then on the aviation bug had well and truly set in. Matthew’s persistence to get up in the air and see the ground from above helped realise his other passion, maps.
Following his Masters from the University of Edinburgh, Matthew began working with the highly reputable technical mapping provider, thinkWhere. It was here he realised that he could build map centric applications helping integrate drones into complicated civilian airspace.
Flyte has progressed through the StartPlanet NI Accelerator and are currently seeking seed investment to enable rapid team growth and product development.
