Aeron roadmap extension for years 2019–2020
The original Aeron roadmap was first published in year 2017. Blockchain applications in aviation industry barely existed at that time. It has taken months of brainstorming and collective intelligence of the team members and professional pilots to compile and propose the original roadmap, which addressed the real world problem — recording of pilot flight logs with immutable storage, support to flight schools and pilot students across the world.
That roadmap comes to its completion this year. We are proud that all milestones have been fulfilled as originally envisaged. Updates for each milestone completion have been announced in Aeron twitter and/or medium publications.
Apart from lobbying and business development efforts, which may have come unseen to general public, there are many deliverables which are presently free to use:
Aeron Pilot application (for iOS and Android, available for download as follows):
Application includes smartwatch companion applications, where applicable. Aeron Pilot application is unique in a sense of recording pilot flight logs data into Ethereum blockchain, for permanent and immutable storage. There are no other known logging applications with this feature available to private pilots or flight schools.
Aerotrips Pilot shop powered by Aeron:
Aeron (ARN) token is integrated as a payment method, including membership offers in the Global Flight Club where ARN token payment qualifies for a discount: https://aerotrips.com/shop/gift-voucher-for-free-1-hour-sightseeing-flight-in-cyprus
Multiple pilot supplies and merchandise are available for sale with automated ARN token payment processing and backend order processing implemented.
CryptoBonusMiles (CBM) and its additional benefits for ARN token holders:
CryptoBonusMiles platform offers additional benefits in exchange for staking ARN tokens. This method is being implemented in CryptoBonusMiles platform upon input and verification of the ARN holder’s wallet address at https://wallet.cryptobonusmiles.com
Aeron (ARN) ERC20<->EOS token swap:
This experimental swap interface was built and enabled to test EOS blockchain features and consider its applicability for future implementation in Aeron Pilot applications, to ensure and maintain cost control over transactions: https://medium.com/@aeronaero/aeron-enters-eos-ecosystem-the-first-ever-bi-directional-erc20-eos-token-swap-13c66e0d39b4
Going forward, there are multiple new initiatives which will strengthen Aeron ecosystem further. To implement this vision, roadmap extension for years 2019–2020 is released.
