Skybolt® was founded in 1982 by Win and Ned Bowers. Win’s roots in aviation started during WWII as a decorated pilot in the 15th Air Force in 1943. Ned soloed on his 16th birthday, purchased and rebuilt a 1946 J3 Cub when he was 18 while attending engineering school at the University of Florida. Soon after, Ned began work on the Saturn V, S1C during Apollo; the S1B during Skylab; and the SSME program for Shuttle. In 1976 Ned joined the U.S. Navy Flight Program. Both Win and Ned had a history of business adventures and an aviation parts business became an ambition for Win with Ned working the technical side.
