iAero philosophy

Since start, the philosophy of the iAero Company has been based on the fact that simplicity is the major condition for any equipment or system to be efficient and profitable.

“Simplicity is the major condition for any equipment or system to be efficient and profitable”

This philosophy stems from the experience of our first development project: an autopilot without inertial reference, for light or ultra-light aircraft.

To meet the challenge of complexity, weight and price for the intended target, the solution could only come from a new approach, breaking with existing technologies and systems.

The second iAero principle, derived from the first, was established during the development of the Apibox flight data recorder: to design a system that can be directly linked to existing aircraft sensors without interfering with the integrity of flight systems, acquisition of existing data and without compromising security.

“Non-intrusive interfaces linked to existing sensors and without interference with the integrity of data acquisition systems”

To achieve this objective, the iAero has designed different types of interfaces (discrete, analog, ARINC 429/717, mil-1533, etc.) which are not intrusive and allow the installation of FDM without altering the aircraft or the material type certificate. For example, the APIBOX is connected to the PC6 of the Pratt & Whitney PT6 turboprop engine without interfering with existing instruments. In the same way, we are connected to the Attitude and Heading Referential System of the DA42 equipped with the G1000 avionics suite. Another very important premise to take into account is that we do not live in a frozen world and that everything changes more and more quickly (technology, materials, manufacturing process, equipment performance, and regulations…). “Scalable design based on modular and open architectures”

Considering this fact, our software and hardware are designed using modular and open architectures, allowing the system to evolve by changing or modifying only what is necessary.

This specific philosophy allows us to improve our products on a very regular basis and to increase their performance at a very low cost for our customers. It also allows us to easily integrate specific customer requirements at a very reasonable cost.
