104,171,935 passengers passed through the Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport in 2016 Aviation market — Today more than ever, despite financial uncertainty, young people are saving up to travel around the world. With modern technology evolving everyday, we take a lot of things for granted. We often forget how convenient travel is today. Aviation plays a bigger role in our lives than one might imagine. Think about this: nearly 63 million jobs are provided by air travel, making aviation a key component in global business. Aside from the economy factor, today more than ever people are willing to invest their savings into traveling as opposed to spend money shopping or going out locally. Young people in their 20”s and 30”s see travel as the best investment of their money, in exchange for cultural experiences. According to the United Nations, young people generate $180 billion annually in tourism revenue. What’s surprising is that today more than ever people are willing to travel despite any economic uncertainty. Reason being, tourists want to see and explore as many different cultures as they can, something they can’t do from the comfort of their own home. 6

Tourism is quickly becoming the world's largest industry and air transport plays a vital role in supporting this sector. Conservative analysis suggests that aviation supports $892.4 billion in economic activity within the tourism industry.

Uber plans to test flying cars by 2020 The Future of Aviation Going even further, aviation has developed much further than we ever thought it could. Private space travel is already today’s reality. In 2001, Dennis Tito got to experience travelling to space, and as he would recall ten years later, it was the happiest day of his life. With constantly evolving technology space travel will become more accessible soon enough. Richard Branson launched Virgin Galactic in 2004. The company offers suborbital space flights to tourists, as well as suborbital launches for science missions. Another breakthrough in space technology was developed by Elon Musk. SpaceX, founded in 2002, became the first provider to be able to launch and recover a spacecraft from orbit. We can only expect that space tourism will become the next most wanted attraction in no time. According to Wired, Uber's flying cars could arrive in Dubai and Texas by 2020. More importantly, Uber has signed deals with five companies that are developing electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft: Pentagon-backed Aurora Flight Sciences, electric plane maker Pipistrel, Bell Helicopter, Embraer, and small plane maker Mooney. Successful landing 8 of Falcon 9 in 2017

Problems & Solutions Despite the fact that we came so far in exploring space, there are still issues to be dealt with in air travel. With over 100,000 flights made daily, serving over 2 million people, safety is still a major concern. Accidents related to air transport average to about 3302 yearly, mainly due to human factor We looked at several common problems. The key problems are that pilots may lack experience they claim, as flight log records can be easily forged. This problem is worsened by “pay to fly” practices, offered to pilots who would not have been hired otherwise. Flight schools may be corrupt to help pilots put in hours on paper. Aircraft operators also contribute to the problem by often underreporting the flight hours, saving huge maintenance costs for the aircraft. With quickly developing technology, aside from human factors, we also face database intrusion, resulting in modification or distortion of data. With so many systems in play—airlines alone house data in many isolated systems from passenger service to crew management—data exchange is not always smooth. In the airline industry, not only are operational integrity and revenue generation at stake when something goes wrong, but even more importantly, so is safety and security. Protecting data privacy is a clear issue when it comes to passenger records, flight manifests and crew information. Not to mention the security implications that are in play today if this data is not properly protected. Blockchain technology with a security wrapper creates a very different and less risky, yet transparent approach to managing and sharing this information through the use of authorized access requirements. 9

Completely new level of security, established by blockchain Blockchain technology can transform pilot and aircraft maintenance logs, which at best are in cumbersome databases and, at worst, are in paper binders. The blockchain will ensure that spare parts procured are legitimate and can offer a “virtual copy” immutable record of the provenance of every part on the plane, every time it has been handled and by whom, from the beginning of the aircraft’s existence. This visibility is profound, and can take the practice of aircraft maintenance, safety and security to new levels. “Blockchain will revolutionise the aviation and airport industry.” “Blockchain technology can create new efficiencies and services models for airlines.” “Blockchain technology can improve the airline industry” 10

Advantages of blockchain A solid, distributed, inviolable and cryptographically secure database. The chain of blocks stores the encrypted code of the documents, and once saved, the data is recorded forever. The perfect place to store property rights, credentials, identities (of objects or people), agreements between parties, transmissions and transactions. No one can falsify, bribe or hack the data inscribed in the blocks of blockchain. Transaction hisory is transparent to all users. Blockchain supports Smart Contracts, which is a computer protocol that facilitates, verifies, enforces agreements and execution of a contract in an automatic and transparent way. is the new standard of aviation safety Falsification of data would be no longer a concern with the development of blockchain. Advantages of the blockchain system are that information is safely stored and completely transparent to all the users. It is secured by a multi-sig authentication system, preventing any alteration of vital data. Our aim is to create “airline in a pocket” — a smart blockchain based solution. The way it works is simple. The pilot’s application is used by a pilot for personal flight logging. The company application collects and verifies data from aircraft operators, maintenance organizations, flight schools and fixed base operators. In case of any mismatch in data between any Aeron data source with either the Air Traffic Control, pilot, or operator, aviation authorities can quickly detect and eliminate the problem. Aviation authorities can also detect any pilots operating with an expired license. As a consumer, or flight school student, you have access to the verified global database through Blockchain can really make a difference. Air travel is for everyone, and it is beneficial for every single person to get involved in making trips safer. 11

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. Blockchain Trusted Data Repository 12 ATC — Air Traffic Control

Pilot Application Use case 1. Pilot opens the mobile application (iOS or Android) 2. Pilot selects “new flight” 3. Pilot select the Aircraft, enters FROM and TO airfield codes and OUT time 4. Application tracks location during flight and records the flight track 5. Once the flight is completed, IN time is recorded 1 6. Pilot is offered choices of FBO services at his destination airfield, featured or discounted services are highlighted 7. Pilot has a choice to purchase certain services from his application 8. Once the flight is submitted to blockchain, its status can be viewed, whether validated against 2 3 AC operator log (for the same Aircraft) and ATC data (once the automated ATC data processing with Data Hub is set up) New flight entry in Pilot App 9. Historical records are available to the pilot for review, analysis and statistic summaries 1 2 FBO — Fixed Base Operator, AC — Aircraft, 3 ATC — Air Traffic Control Value to the Pilot: convenient logging application, compliance and transparency for aviation authorities, improved public trust in pilot experience, discounted FBO services and ability to pay with cryptocurrency, as well as an club membership 13

Company Application Use case 1. Company employee opens the mobile application (iOS or Android) 2. User receives data about completed flight from server (tracked by Pilot App) 3. User adds information about oil, refueling, and remarks on the technical condition of the Aircraft 4. User can assign a task to a technical specialist 1 or maintenance organization for AC service 5. User can manage Aircraft bookings through the application 7. User can add other company services, which pilots can order through the application 8. Once the flight is submitted to blockchain, it’s status can be viewed, whether validated against 2 Pilot log (for the same Aircraft) and ATC data (once the automated ATC data processing with Data Hub is set up) 9. Historical records are available to the company for review, analysis, and statistic summaries Flight information in Company App 1 2 AC — Aircraft, ATC — Air Traffic Control Value to the Company: convenient logging application, compliance and transparency for aviation authorities, easy aircraft booking system, aircraft management and maintenance, inflow of new customers introduced through the application 14 Passenger Use case 1. Passenger opens web portal at 2. He/she is seeking options for demo flights around a certain location 3. Offers from local flight schools and private pilots are shown on the map 4. Pilots with flight logs validated with Aeron solution are highlighted (with a trust icon) 5. Passenger can select the best offers (based on flight time, cost, etc) and perform booking 6. Booking can be paid online with fiat or cryptocurrency 7. He/she receives a booking confirmation 8. Once the flight is completed, passenger can submit a report and feedback 9. Booked flight data is validated against logs submitted by the pilot and pilot’s experience on web portal is updated Beta version of Value to the Passenger: access to the global database of flight offers, including Air Taxi & Charters, Flight Tours & Excursions, pilots with validated experience, an ability to pay with cryptocurrency, and an club membership 15

Till date, pilot logs mainly exist in paper form with manual signatures and stamps. Logs under control National aviation authorities have no universal mechanism to control integrity and authenticity of the pilot logs electronically. There are no international standards or comprehensive technology for electronic logging. Each country maintains its own log book formats and establishes national rules for processing and validation of the logs. The legacy system is not equipped to handle the ever-increasing number and variety of small aircraft and licensed private pilots operating worldwide. This leads to a less than optimal experience for many people involved. Aeron has a solution to this logging conundrum based on blockchain technology. It will enable an online system relying on Aeron database, built on Ethereum blockchain to track aircraft and pilot log records, as well as ARN, a utility token to enable the development of a thriving, self-sustaining ecosystem around the database and token holders. True “airline in a pocket” featuring integrity, reliability and easy validation. 16

We believe that aviation safety is closely related to record integrity. Once the log records are stored in blockchain, available for public audit and can’t be forged, both authorities and passengers can be confident that a pilot actually has the experience claimed. Taking this a step further, the same system can be applied to aircraft maintenance records and tracking of spare parts, to confirm that spare parts are authentic, maintenance has been performed according to standards and there are no shortcuts. The system described above could be supported by smart contracts that contain various log records, as well as execute rental deeds or charters for the aircraft, or cost sharing agreements between private pilots and their passengers; combined with a sleek user interface to allow for engagement with the blockchain, and a defined protocol to ensure transactions occur in compliance with local regulations. Aeron (ARN) utility token would be required for write access to the Aeron database and other on-chain events. Aeron token would also have a real-world application, as it could be envisaged as a means of payment for small aircraft charters or promotional leisure flights, with aircraft owners having signed up for partnership arrangements with Aeron. Aeron will work with national aviation authorities and international aviation agencies including EASA and FAA, to promote acceptance of the electronic log records based on blockchain, to demonstrate integrity, reliability and transparency of record keeping. A smart phone application will ultimately replace obsolete paper records and would gain a global acceptance, enabling a single point of reference for licensed private pilots, aircraft owners and operators, aviation enthusiasts and general public interested in aircraft charters, leisure flights and pilot training. 17

It will enable an online system relying on Aeron database, built on Ethereum blockchain to track aircraft and pilot log records. 20

Why we do Token Sale? There are many arguments why we have chosen to do the token sale instead of alternatives ways to raise money: First, a token sale not only allows us to onboard participants from different regions but also to incentivise them to promote Aeron’s products. Second, tokens provide liquidity since they can be traded on various exchanges after the token sale. Participants can liquidate their position and benefit from growth of token market value. Finally, the token smart contract enables easy distribution of tokens to participants, instant payments with tokens, security and transparency, which would be hard to achieve without usage of blockchain technology. Token Functions & Benefits We introduce Aeron (ARN), an ERC20 compliant Ethereum based token, with a fixed supply of 20,000,000 ARN. During the token launch, a fixed amount of ARN is created, and afterwards no more tokens shall be minted. Aeron utility tokens are created to fund development and marketing of the Aeron project with associated distributed database, online portal and applications, as described in this document. Aeron is built on the ERC20 token standard with a fixed supply of 20,000,000 ARN Because Aeron is built on the ERC20 token standard, it allows for simple integration into users’ wallets and is freely tradeable via direct transfers or via smart contracts. It is possible that Aeron token could also be added to cryptocurrency exchanges. 21

The total supply of ARN will slowly decrease over time, as tokens are taken out of circulation, for example, when someone with ARN loses their private keys, therefore, ARN will be effectively deflationary. Once Aeron receives ARN for services rendered, the tokens will be put back into the circulation. As a primary utility, for write access to database with signing log entries and validation on the blockchain, Aeron will charge a transaction fee in ARN. Token Functionality Aeron (ARN) utility token will be incorporated in Aeron products. It helps to enhance product usage, allow contribution to the ecosystem, product access and ownership. ARN is a bootstrapping engagement. While the token will enable access to valuable features within the Aeron platform, it won’t be limited by the Aeron mobile applications. Aeron token can be utilized for the following purposes, creating revenue streams for Aeron and offering additional benefits to the token holders: 1. Subscription fee / Transaction based fee for log entries 2. Commission on paid services (in fiat or ARN tokens) 3. Commission on intermediation and client introductions 4. Currency (mean of payment) for buying aviation services 5. Unlock access to flight schools, offers from pilots and aviation companies To incentivise participation in the ecosystem and expand our reach, we will offer a seed quantity of Aeron tokens to flight schools, aircraft operators and aviation companies signing up with Aeron. Once seed tokens are exhausted we expect a steady demand for tokens from the users. Compared to fiat based payments for Aeron fees and commissions, we will offer discounts should the fees be paid in ARN, facilitating further demand. As an example, once a fixed base operator at a certain airfield renders services (refueling, etc) to a pilot referred by Aeron, commission can be paid in ARN with a 20—30 % discount. Aeron tokens will be the currency of aerotrips. com club, offering premium access to offers from aviation companies, special incentives and discounts. 22

We created ARN with a clear vision that token must work, must be viable, secure, well funded, inflation protected, work better than other coins and do something unique as well. These are key elements to the solid foundation. More of that, we believe that ARN will bring improvements to society as well as short and long term gains to investors. As a long term vision, at the first stage of project development ARN tokens would be used within the Aeron platform, and at the second — they will became the standard token in aviation. Roadmap for Aeron token application is the following: Unlock access Buying access Currency for Membership Currency for to flight schools, to premium app buying aviation club and access buying aviation offers from features services to discounts supplies pilots… First stage (2018-2019/Q1) Second stage (2019/Q2-2020) The Aeron token contract address will be published at After token sale ARN will be listed on cryptocurrency exchanges, providing liquidity. Major exchanges already on board are Binance and HitBTC, with others on negotiation stage. 23

Demand for Aeron services from consumer market will directly in fluence aviation professionals. They will use Aeron more frequently and more responsibly. At that, B2C market would boost B2B market, so more companies will integrate Aeron platform to fulfil consumer demand. It will make a positive impact on ARN token value, as a utility token for aviation professionals to access the range of Aeron services offerings. 24

Token Sale Process 60% of the fixed 20,000,000 ARN supply are being offered for sale, equating to 12,000,000 ARN. These will be sold in two stages with limited presale, followed by the general sale. ARN can be obtained online at a price per token of 1 ARN = $0.5 (fifty US cents) with payment in cryptocurrencies accounted at a current exchange rate at the date of transaction. Bitcoin (“BTC”) and Ether (“ETH”) will be the only methods of payment accepted in the general sale. The remaining 40% of the fixed supply (8,000,000 ARN) are not available via the token sale and will be allocated as follows: 20% of the tokens will be allocated for network growth to incentivise participation in the ecosystem. Worldwide marketing activities and government relations would increase Aeron’s market presence. 18% of the tokens will be retained for the development and management team, whose work makes Aeron possible. Remaining 2% of the tokens will be used to cover administrative costs of the token sale. The token sale will be offered until all 12,000,000 ARN have been distributed. Early buyers will receive special bonuses connected to the timing and amount of purchase. The ARN distributed and remaining can be tracked at during general sale. Please register at to purchase ARN tokens. For further queries related to token sale process, refer to FAQ at Tokens will be released to the Ethereum ERC20 compatible wallets of the buyers specified during the sale process, once the sale is closed tentatively by November 2017. There will be no lock-up for any of the ARN tokens purchased in either presale or the general sale. 26

Our Clients Student Pilot Flight Examiner Fixed Base Operators Private Pilot Flight Schools Aviation Authorities Commercial Pilot Aircraft Operators Flight Instructor Maintanance Organizations Revenue Streams Aeron has a simple and scalable business model. When any transaction involving a payment between counterparts is concluded (for example, service provided by a fixed based operator to a pilot introduced by Aeron, an aircraft charter or a leisure flight booking), Aeron takes a small percentage (starting from 2% and averaging ~5%) of the total consideration payable by the user. The payments are initially processed by the traditional payment system on the online portal, in fiat, and cryptocurrencies will be added as a means of payment for the jurisdictions where possible. Payment would also be made possible with ARN tokens, as introduced earlier in this document. For write access to database with signing log entries and validation on the blockchain, Aeron will charge a small transactional fee. 31
