According to Gravity’s website, the company was founded just last month, and describes itself as “a British technology start-up with innovation, endeavour and inspiration at its core.”

The company’s mission is “to build an inspirational technology company by re-imagining the future of human flight and pioneering aeronautical innovation.”

By the looks of it this week, they’re already well on their way.
