About Us

The Just Soaring Team is made up of salty veteran guys that have decades of experience individually in a number of industries and functionalities and where we all share a passion for aviation and of course soaring. Engineering, manufacturing, quality, supply chain, marketing / branding, customer support – each member of the Team has sort of “been there done that” in numerous companies over the many years working in a variety of countries and industries. We are uniquely positioned to rapidly execute on our plans because our muscle memory is strong and while we might be a start-up brand in this space, we sure as hell aren’t start up guys that are going to their first rodeo! We’re excited to get our prototypes built and tested and start sharing them with you. In the meantime, pls don’t spend any big money on simulator hardware until you see what we’re up to! And as always - Happy Soaring!

Mitch Thomson

Founder / President

With nearly 30 years of global management experience in industries ranging from investment banking and entertainment, to automotive electronics and beverage equipment – Mitch brings a wealth of knowledge and important contacts / network built out in stints with companies such as Fedex (Greater China/Asia), Rosen Products (Los Angeles), Aldare Capital Partners (Taipei), Megazone Laser Games (Greater China), and most recently with Middleby Corporation’s Ss Brewtech Division (Los Angeles). 

Most of the last 20 years of Mitch’s career have been functionally in cross-border supply chains and executive/ general management.  His most recent stint as the Founder and President of Ss Brewtech , was arguably his biggest career achievement: taking a company literally from his garage in Southern California all the way to an acquisition by a Nasdaq listed public company just 6 short years after starting a business that engineered and sold / distributed high end home brewing and commercial brewing equipment all over the world.  Now with that in the rear view mirror, Mitch says he is ready to tackle some new challenges and engage his passion for aviation and soaring!
