One of Israel's most prominent tech entrepreneurs, Mobileye co-founder and CEO Amnon Shashua, suffered light wounds after the helicopter he was flying crashed on Sunday. The 61-year-old was flying the helicopter himself in what was just his second solo flight as part of his studies to receive his license. He was forced to make a crash landing in the Sharon region in central Israel while practicing landings. Shashua, who has an airplane pilot license, was taken in another helicopter to Herzliya Airport where he received treatment for his light wounds. He refused to be taken to hospital.
