OneSky joins Embry-Riddle’s research park as tenant partner


OneSky, part of Directional Aviation, is joining Embry-Riddle’s Aeronautical University’s research park as a tenant partner.

As part of the agreement, a section of the John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex in Daytona Beach, Florida, will be named the OneSky Innovation Center.

The center will offer full- and part-time internships that focus on aviation information technology, as well as holding coding competitions. The center is currently planning on taking in four or five interns this year.

“As the OneSky family of brands leads the industry in developing cutting-edge technology to support its many customers, we are proud they selected Embry-Riddle as their university partner,” said P. Barry Butler, president of Embry-Riddle. “This is the first step in developing a comprehensive enterprise-to-industry partnership with OneSky.”

Part of the Innovation Center’s research will focus on how to include the latest technology and concepts in big data to OneSky’s stored information.

OneSky currently supports Directional Aviation companies Flexjet, Sentient Jet and Skyjet, including all three companies’ mobile apps.

“We will be adapting the latest existing technologies from other industries into our business,” said OneSky chief technology officer Greg Johnson. “And we will be developing new technologies unique to private aviation built on the foundation of our decades of experience and history of innovation.”
