Jason’s Instrument Instructor was a retired Colonel who ultimately served as the SR-71 Squadron Commander. The CFI spin endorsement (which Jason obtained in 2001) was administered by an instructor who received his ticket from the famous Orville Wright. Jason received Certified Weather Observer credentials in person from a district manager who wanted to let him know that in 40 years of writing certificates Jason was the only individual in his jurisdiction to pass the exam on the 1st attempt.


Jason flew professionally serving as a crew member in twin Cessna aircraft and other various line pilot roles. He contributes extensive technical aptitude to the ASAP team. His background boasts over 20,000 aviation support calls, over 10 years of experience in the aviation mobile application support realm, 10 years of calculating Runway Analysis, and 8 years of aviation exhibitor representation at the industry’s largest trade shows. He is bilingual (Spanish) and is passionate about flight efficiency as well as safety of flight.


Nathan Sakal

Aircraft Performance Engineer

Mr. Sakal graduated at the top of his class from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering. Specializing in systems and software engineering he has acquired some of the best education and experience possible to develop exceptional runway performance analysis.

 

While studying at the university Mr. Sakal had the privilege to conduct research studies on airfoils in wind tunnels, icing chambers, and vibrational and torsional situations. This experience has given him hands on experience for understanding flight dynamics, the effects of adverse weather conditions during flight, and max payload capabilities.

 

During his senior year acting as a Software Testing Team Lead, he was a critical member to help win a weather balloon competition, along with serving as a Technology Lead on proof of concept design for a manned orbital mission to Mars. He has also acquired a certification in AGI’s Systems Tool Kit software which allows for advanced flight path and orbital analysis.

 

His experience with safety critical mission design and overall broad understanding of complex systems is what helps ASAP develop safe and reliable solutions. Mr. Sakal’s main roles at ASAP involve user interface design, developing runway performance programs, and handling customer’s special requests.
