Problem

Aviation unites the world. Today it has become an irreplaceable part of our lives, our business, and more importantly — it brings us back home to spend time with our family.

There are over 100,000 flights worldwide made daily, serving over 2 million people. Despite the fact that aviation is considered as one of the safest types of transportation, the number of accidents related to air transport averages to about 3302 yearly. The main reason is the human factor.

Main reasons of aviation accidents
  • 57% Human factor
  • 22% Technical problems
  • 12% Weather conditions
  • 9% Other
Key issues
  • Pilots may lack experience they claim — flight log records can be easily forged.
  • Flight schools may be corrupt — they have an incentive to “fake” pilot experience.
  • Aircraft operators may underreport the flight hours — saving considerable maintenance costs.
  • Lack of a common solution that would prevent any modification or distortion of log data.
  • Aviation has high demand for replacing old-fashioned solutions with new technologies.
  • Flight schools need more sophisticated tools to manage student records and aircraft fleet.

Solution

The improvement in aviation safety today can be achieved by using blockchain technology. It will exclude the possibility of loss, distortion or forgery of vital log data, therefore significantly reducing the risk of fatal accidents. Information should be transparent and available for the authorities to improve safety.

Advantages of Aeron blockchain solution for aviation
  • Blockchain technology ensures that vital log data cannot be altered.
  • Multi-sig authentication system provides data security.
  • Information is stored in the blockchain, transactions are transparent and can be viewed by all users.
Aeron is the new standard of aviation safety, embodied in a line of innovative products:
Pilot Appmobile / web
Application for the pilot’s personal use to log the flight hours.
Global Aviation Register with Decentralized Record System
aerotrips.com web portal
Blockchain powered global database of aviation services available to prospective passengers or flight school students.
Aviation Company Appmobile / web
Corporate application to log and cross-verify data from flight schools, aircraft operators, maintenance organizations and other sources.

How it Works

In case of any mismatch in data between any Aeron data source with either the ATC, pilot, or operator, aviation authorities can quickly detect and eliminate the problem. Aviation authorities can also detect any pilots operating with an expired license.

Pilot Application
Pilots are able to log flight hours and submit data. The pilot app also offers a loyalty program and gives access to the best curated offers.
Consumer
Passengers and flight school students can access validated global database of aviation services through aerotrips.com
Air Traffic Control
In select locations, Air Traffic Control data is processed through Data Hub automatically and verifies log entries made by Pilots and Companies (to confirm the actual flight took place).
Company Application

Maintenance Organizations log service data and submit to blockchain through the company application.

Aircraft Operators log flight data and submit to blockchain through the company application.

Fixed Base Operators submit airport services data to blockchain through the company application.
