G. & J. Tarrow Siblings Inc.

High-tech company that specialises in the design and manufacture of Triplocopters, dirigibles and other things that fly.

The founders, Gabriel & Jamie Tarrow, also invented the Ratchet-raptors. But this they license to Raptor Industries.

Gabriel and Jamie Tarrow, inventors of the Triplocopter, began experimenting with flying copter-vehicles when they were in elementary school. By the time they were 7 and 9, using a glider prototype, they could fly from the second story of their house, across the road into the grounds of a neighboring duck-training academy. A year later they had added a small engine, built a small copter-pad on the roof of their house, and could fly over 1 mile. When their parents found out, they were extremely unhappy. They sold the house and moved to a single-storey bungalow, and banned the kids from going on the roof. But Gabriel and Jamie continued with their mission. They’d secretly go up on the roof. When their dad found out, he removed the roof.

When Gabriel and Jamie started experimenting from the trees in the yard, their mom chopped down the trees.

But Gabriel and Jamie Tarrow were undeterred. While their parents were at work, they dug a bunker under the house, and in it they continued their experiments in secret. By the time they were in high school they had perfected the design, and could fly over 50 miles in it. By the time they reached college, they had set up their business, G. & J. Tarrow Siblings Inc., and were manufacturing one triplocopter per month. By 2015, they were both multi-multi-millionaires and world famous.

Their parents were no longer annoyed with them.
