Karl Treier is a veteran entrepreneur, experienced executive, programmer, technologist and private pilot. He has participated in five Cincinnati based funded start ups as CEO or CTO. Originally from Wakefield, England he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1990 to pursue the American Dream. FlightHike combines Karl's passions for aviation, innovation, and his driving desire to make Air Travel a fun experience again. He believes connecting General Aviation pilots with potential passengers via the FlightHike marketplace can transform Air Travel by alleviating parking hassles, long check-in times, security screening lines, and hub and spoke routing. FlightHike is currently fundraising and is planning to launch in Q4/2013.
