Ryan Wilkoff

Founder, Forever Flight

Ryan graduated UNC during covid. A former walk-on, Mack Brown told him to graduate and go do something 'other than sports' and since then; Forever Flight has piloted a sustainable ATCT, volunteered with NREL to plan to rebuild Puerto Rico's grid, and is now working alongside a broad distrubuted energy network to decarbonize regional airports. Our team works towards self-suffcient regional airpors through renewable solar and tidal/wave energy for electric and green hydrogen planes. He enjoys Lil baby, Bob Marley, and Dua Lipa music and he thinks it would be cool if we could save the manatees and penguins.
