As a very complex industry, aviation uses many huge and versatile, usually isolated and sometimes outdated data systems. Discrepancies in data can cause manifold problems affecting not only revenues and operational integrity but human lives as well. The key problem is pilots and flight instructors may fake flight log records to claim experience the pilot does not actually have. Apart from human error accidents are widely caused by incomplete data: whether it came about by data intrusion or just by lack of proper background on aircraft parts, maintenance logs and so on. All of these issues can be solved by blockchain technology creating immutable records for flight logs and
The key problem is pilots and flight instructors may fake flight log records to claim experience the pilot does not actually have. Apart from human error accidents are widely caused by incomplete data: whether it came about by data intrusion or just by lack of proper background on aircraft parts, maintenance logs and so on. All of these issues can be solved by blockchain technology creating immutable records for flight logs and maintenance databases.
Aeron Register system can track pilot and aircraft log records which are stored in the blockchain, available for public audit and can’t be forged. It could facilitate data exchange on every step of communication between clients, airports, aircraft maintenance and service companies. Thus, all people involved in operating and flying an aircraft can use customized apps – pilots for personal flight logging, aviation companies to collect and verify log data from flight schools, aircraft operators, fixed base operators and others. The Aeron Register system can be also applied to aircraft maintenance records and tracking of spare parts, to confirm that spare parts are authentic and maintenance has been performed according to standards.

Konstantin Gertman, Chief development officer of Aeron comments:
We saw big opportunity for blockchain to revolutionise an outdated system. The advantages of the blockchain is that information is safely stored, cannot be falsified and is completely transparent to all the users. It is secured by a multi-sig authentication system, preventing any data alteration. Our long-term aim is to create “airline in a pocket” with a convenient user interface for engagement with the blockchain.
