Business aviation digital technology companies MySky, aviowiki, and FL3XX are joining forces during the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE] next month in Geneva. At the May 23 to 25 show, the trio will display their wares in an exhibit dubbed the “technology hub.”
The collaboration between financial management platform MySky, global aerodrome database aviowiki, and aircraft management software firm FL3XX is designed to “highlight the benefits” of digital technology to all business aircraft operators and users and to grow their customer base.
“We all recognize the importance of using technology in business aviation and the benefits it can have,” said Chris Marich, co-founder and global strategy director at MySky. “Working together to bring the technology hub to EBACE puts the spotlight on how tech can benefit this sector and advance the whole aviation ecosystem.”
Marich said by partnering with aviowiki and FL3XX at EBACE, visitors to the hub will be able to “see for themselves” what a difference technology can make to their operation. “We all share the same goal of bringing efficiency and transparency to the industry,” he noted. At the show, the partners will use their combined knowledge and experience to “help existing private aviation users” but also help reduce barriers to entry for potential new customers, “both of which will contribute to growing the industry,” Marich added.
For aviowiki founder and chief executive Diego Magrini, the collaboration will demonstrate “how the mixture of forward-thinking, digital data and advanced software are shaping the industry for the next generation [of aircraft operators and users.” The future of aviation is not only dependent on modern technologies, he conceded, “but also on collaboration and the sharing of information across all areas of the industry.”
FL3XX founder Paolo Sommariva echoed this view. “The connected world of aviation has been a recurring theme for FL3XX since its foundation,” he said. “With over 100 integrations online, an ecosystem where data flows freely throughout the market players is now a reality,” Sommariva added.
The trio stressed that the partnerships are completely agnostic, and they welcome other digital platforms to join their EBACE initiative. “We are happy to partner with any data or software provider that would benefit from sharing data,” said Marich.
