How often do you hear of a Pilot starting their own business? In truth, if you had one of the most glamourous jobs in the world, why would you want to switch it for all the stresses that come with starting, funding and managing your own business? Unless, of course, you had an idea that could revolutionise aviation communications and result in savings of hundreds of millions of Euros for airlines throughout the world. Three Aer Lingus pilots – Justin Perry, Darach O’Comhrai and Kris Vansteenkiste – have come up with one such idea and have just raised €350,000 on the Spark Crowdfunding platform to help bring this early stage business to the next stage.

Frequency Pre Departure

When does Frequency come into play? … Part 3

Frequency has optimised our contact management system to allow flight teams to communicate openly and share real time information with the required parties which allows them to work together as a team to resolve any issues that arise ultimately resulting in dispatching the aircraft sooner. The key to this is being able to contact the required party and reducing the overall number of communications necessary by up to 60%.

Even though aeroplanes are still largely grounded, that suits Justin Perry, of Frequency, which is also raising funds. He and his co-founders, all pilots, developed an aviation communications product designed to replace the eight forms of communications used in cockpits. Some, such as VHF radio, are 100-year-old technologies, while other communication is of poor quality. “It’s crazy. It’s why passengers behind us on their mobile phones can often find out about the reasons for delays before we do,” said Perry.
