Meet the Moya Team

Alexandre Zaramela
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Alexandre (Zara) has a 20-year track record of aerospace innovations. As co-founder and CEO of ACS-Aviation, a Brazilian company located in the country’s technology corridor near São Paulo, he developed aircraft for General Aviation, UAVs, and manned electric airplanes. Zara designed, produced, and tested an all-composite Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) and medium-sized UAVs. In 2015, he piloted the SORA-e, the first manned, electrically-powered aircraft to fly in the southern hemisphere.

Zara brings his knowledge of electric propulsion and two decades of technical experience in design, aircraft stress analysis, aerodynamic loading, wind tunnel testing, and ground and flight testing to lead Moya. The scope of Zara’s experience, which includes the certification process, spans design to delivery and is ideal for bringing new innovations to market.

We’re working through our checklist and are right on schedule to introduce a whole new way to transport payload to the world by:

  . delivering critical supplies and materials to remote, inaccessible regions
  . connecting communities with poor or no infrastructure
  . improving the efficiency, productivity, and cost of crop management
  . making hazardous flying safer
  . connecting businesses with customers faster, cheaper, and simpler

Our ideas are creative. Our products are transformative.


Our Longer-Term Vision

Opening new opportunities in the world of logistics is just the first step in our vision to develop more innovative, unmanned, all-electric products. On our drawing board are concepts for eVTOL Extra Range, STOL, and High-Lift vehicles for a wide range of applications. The possibilities are endless.
