About

ÜberAir Flightsharing allows travelers and pilots (commercial and private) to link up and share the experience of flying as well the cost for trips.

Pilots can register their flights and travelers can lodge searches. Once connected they sort out the trip details directly between each other.

With over 20,000 aircraft and over 30,000 Pilots in Australia alone (50,000 aircraft and 200,000 pilots on the USA) there are thousands of flights everyday where spare capacity is unused, while travelers are paying more or spending excessive times driving to their destination where a flight could cut that travel cost by 75%.

Sharing spare seats on flights that are undertaken anyway are also saving valuable resources and protecting the environment.

Australia and USA both have long distances between destinations and a well developed network of small to medium size aerodromes close to locations where travelers want to go. Traveling on commercial flights often only gets travelers to major airports and then a long car or bus ride is needed to get into remote locations.

ÜberAir changes this by providing a platform tor travelers and pilots to effectively and securely connect and communicate.

Risks and challenges

Developing the software / web platform will take a dedicated development team which also understands aviation. The ÜberAir team has identified suitable providers and is confident the solution can be developed and maintained successfully.

Christian has a professional background as a Project Manager and Information Technology specialist. He has done substantial background searches and conceptual work to be confident that the solution is viable and technically feasible.
