WingTips Takes Shape

Starting to see some real and visible results of our application design. A challenge we have is The Personal Airline is a fully functional airline booking and scheduling system. Lean Startup MVP does not work, since it does not go over well if we forget a passenger, don’t schedule an aircraft, fail to pay an operator, or lose data! Our development partner, KiwiTech, has a track record of building robust operational systems and are bringing a senior team to make sure the system exceeds users expectations.

Here are some examples of the screens. Our goal is to make the front-end of the system intuitive with a look & feel of airline sites. It is the back-end that powers the complex science, performing multi-party negotiation with 5-10 users, simultaneously, as well as multidimensional searches with fuzzy logic embedded.

Simple and easy flight request screen

The concept is simple. You request a custom on-demand flight, WingTips searches availability across multiple airports. Because we offer on-demand flights, there are no preset schedules, instead we perform a complex search process that overlays your request with other travelers and with what our charter operator partners have available.

If no existing flight, you may see Pre-Flights or request WingTips Solutions

If there are no matching flights to your request, you may be offered a Pre-Flight. This is a group of travelers with matching flight plans. Pre-Flights convert to Flights with as few as three travelers. No obligation to join a Pre-Flight, so you can select it and see if it converts to a flight within a few hours, and once it is a Flight, you decide if you want to purchase.

Flight found and ready to go!

And when there is a match, we present the flight to you. This is like booking a seat on an airline, where you are confirmed upon payment.
