Who is Paul Moller?

Paul Sandner Moller is an engineer who has spent the past forty years developing the Moller Skycar personal vertical takeoff and landing vehicle.

The engine technology developed for the Skycar has also been adapted as a UAV platform called the aerobot. The rotapower engine itself has been spun off to a separate Moller company, Freedom Motors.

In 1972, Moller founded Supertrapp Industries to market his invention of an engine silencing system. Moller sold Supertrapp in 1988 in order to fund development of his Skycar and its rotapower engine.

In 2003, the Securities and Exchange Commission sued Moller for civil fraud in connection with value of shares after the initial public offering of stock, and for making unsubstantiated claims about the performance of the Skycar. Moller settled this lawsuit without admitting guilt by agreeing to a permanent injunction against claiming projected worth of Moller International stock and paying $50,000. The shareholders of Moller International - collectively known as SOMI banded together on a website to tell the Moller-side of the SEC issue.
