Nathaniel McMahon is brother to Nick McMahon and a third-generation pilot with over 15 years of experience. McMahon completed his first solo flight on his 16th birthday in a single-engine Cessna airplane (16 years of age is the legal minimum age requirement to solo an aircraft).
Over the next few years, McMahon would earn multiple pilot ratings and attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, majoring in Aerospace Engineering. McMahon would later transfer to Arizona State University and graduate in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering.
In 2011, McMahon completed Bell Helicopter Factory Training and shortly after became a line pilot for McMahon Helicopter Services, Inc. Needing new technology for the business, McMahon would hit the books again and become a self-taught coder, learning multiple coding languages used for building websites and creating mobile apps for Apple iOS and other web platforms.
In 2014, McMahon would partner with his brother Nick McMahon to purchase and refinance the assets of McMahon Helicopter Services, Inc. after their father and company founder, Brian P. McMahon, unexpectedly passed away at age 63. McMahon would become Vice President of McMahon Helicopter Services, Inc. that year.
After mastering his coding skills, McMahon built a custom web and iOS app that allows McMahon Helicopter Services' customers to track time-critical freight shipments seamlessly from end-to-end. The app's first version called "McMahon Now" was released in January of 2019 and became a key component of McMahon Helicopter Services' airborne logistics service.
McMahon has since developed and released version 3.0 of the "McMahon" app (released in 2022), which adds functionality allowing customers to get accurate, door-to-door, freight shipment timing via helicopter, simply by entering two street addresses.
McMahon continues his work as a commercial pilot and IoT developer for McMahon Helicopter Services, Inc.
