Mikael Shamim

Managing Director, Helicus

Mikael Shamim, founder and Managing Director of Helicus combines his pilot (PPL-A and RPL-R class 1) licenses with his 20+ years corporate experience in healthcare and industrial sectors.  He has successfully held international positions related to Sales, Marketing and Operations.  He is an adviser to medical institutions on organizational and process aspects related to network collaboration.

He led Helicus to coordinate an open ecosystem with leading industrial organizations based on a fair win-win attitude and a strong focus on long run objectives.  The shared objective is to create an integrated solution to perform medical transport by drone.  The ecosystem successfully obtained consecutive approvals for public-privately funded projects at EU, national and regional levels.  After going through the required steps at test areas, the ecosystem will demonstrate urban non-segregated automated flights in September 2019.
