Blockchain technology has now been rapidly adopted worldwide for its several applications, and many countries and companies are already assembling various resources to launch their own blockchain network.
While the blockchain innovation offers unique solutions that come up every day. Aeron, a Cyprus-based startup, has recently released a mobile app that records and verifies the pilot’s qualification. The application, which replaces the traditional pilot logbook (the manual act of logging flight hours on paper) is now available on Google Play and “https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/aeron-pilot/id1352338215″ target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer”>Apple App Stores. This concept emerged an idea of using Blockchain for aviation safety last year.
If reports of this start up are to be studied in detail, they show that 57 percent of aviation accidents happen due to human error. The project team consists of a group of private aviation enthusiasts who intend to use Blockchain technology to reduce the number of accidents that happen in the air due to poor record keeping.
Talking of the mobile app, it is based on Blockchain technology and allows the storage of all necessary pilot logbook data in a digital format. The company is now developing a decentralized database and online system that would host global data on aircraft, flight schools and pilots. The press release states :
“Typically, it proves next to impossible to recover the individual pilot’s logbook, should it be lost or destroyed, especially in a case where a pilot does not have an association with a single flight school or location,”
- The startup also plans to promote its subsidiary website Aerotrips.com, which is a marketplace for booking private flights and other aviation services. Aerotrips.com was launched by Aeron in Nov. 2017 as “an online portal and aggregator for aviation that gives special attention to private flights and individual pilots”.
- In April 2018 the startup plans to accomplish integration of aerotrips.com to Blockchain, and in June 2018 will make token payments available for the website services.
As of today, Aeron tokens (ARN) are listed at Binance and HitBTC, as well as at KuCoin, Bit-Z, Coinrail and other exchanges.
