The iAero – i2A SAS company was founded in 2001 by François Vignon (private pilot and IT specialist) and Gérald Ducoin (flight test pilot). It is based at Darois airport (250 km south east of Paris) and also has an office in the United States. The company was originally founded from an encounter and an idea: to create a low cost, low mass, inertial referenceless autopilot for light aviation. This patented solution was met with real success. Since then, iAero has come a long way, notably developing a complete and lightweight flight data recording and management solution (FDM) unique on the market: the APIBOX solution. This solution, which is already in version 3, is now marketed worldwide. It is fitted to all types of aircraft and designed to comply with the ED-155 standard.
