Remembering our Founder
AeroComputers started with Mark Gassaway and the idea that there had to be an easier way to navigate when in the air than flipping through a Thomas Guide while piloting an aircraft. The son of an innovator and inventor, Mark was no stranger to how to turn a unique vision into reality and started tinkering in his airplane hangar, combining software and custom computer hardware into Airborne Law Enforcement’s first digital mapping system. Until his death in 2014, Mark considered himself blessed to be able to combine his two great passions, flying (and landing off-runway in his Cessna tail-dragger) and technology, and to build a company that founded an industry and helps save lives and prevent crime to this day.
