It is 2020 and despite all the available advances in mobility, people still have no real control over where, when and how they fly. As the airline industry once again resuscitates a failing hub and spoke operation, we see that the huge demand for regional and local air connectivity is unmet. That's why we want to reimagine air travel at KinectAir - To MOVE people to where they NEED to be. As a software-defined global air mobility company, we build powerful AI software to operate our own flexible, on-demand network of 'right-sized' aircraft with world-class pilots, so that we can fly our customers safely to where they need to be, when they want to be there. We believe that this will allow us to dramatically change the way people fly and expand the market for on-demand air mobility. OUR PRODUCTS: We are on a mission to empower people to connect with each other, places, and communities by air. We plan two complementary products. The go anywhere point to point charter or group flights for 8 people, and turboprops with up to 80 seats offering flexible routing. The combination of the software, the most versatile machines available and the airfield access we can give customers will create a game changing network for regional flying. OUR TECHNOLOGY: To maximize efficiency - affordability for customers and our profitability - we plan to code AI software to continuously optimize, at scale and in real time, the true supply and demand across our own network of aircraft, pilots, and other passengers. SUSTAINABLE AVIATION - MOVING THE INDUSTRY FORWARD KinectAir aspires to be efficient by design. We aim to do more to cut waste and reduce avoidable CO2 aviation emissions than any air company has before. First, the right-sized aircraft we use today are significantly more efficient than equivalent jet aircraft. By optimizing operations using these efficient aircraft, we can dramatically reduce the typical carbon footprint for passengers. Second, achieving significant reductions in operator CO2 emissions can only be attained by open innovation and cooperation between new partners. Electric and hybrid manufacturers of conventional take off and landing (eCTOL) aircraft are streets ahead in terms of reaching and exceeding regulatory standards for safe operations. KinectAir is already looking to bring in hybrid and electric aircraft into the fleet in the near term (1-2 years). With such aircraft, the traveler will be part of the leap forward in aviation. Allowing more people to positively evaluate their need to travel against their carbon footprint. Fossil fuels represent 40% of a typical airline's cost base today. As with so many sustainable policies, we believe that doing the right thing is profitable for the customer, the planet and operations.
