Bartini’s goal within the Consortium is to develop, manufacture, provide and put in operation the 4-seater and 2-seater
urban aerial vehicles. Blockchain technology will be used to make its flights available to holders of McFly tokens. Bartini
operates on the Blockchain.aero’s premise that one unit of measurement can apply to both the technical lifetime of the vehicle
and to value of its function.
There are several considerations behind this. Firstly, conventional lifetime measuring in flight hours or kilometers is
hardly applied to a vehicle which is effectively comprised of two — a hover and a cruiser. Therefore a synthetic unit of
measurement is required. Secondly, future decentralized use of urban aerial vehicles (ridesharing in a larger sharing economy)
in different geographic markets, as well as most current technological trends, push for keeping all the information across
the whole value chain on one blockchain. Finally, blockchain tokens, being an integral part of the blockchain technology,
can be used both a) to measure the aerial vehicle’s available flying resource and its consumption in different flight modes,
under different loads, and b) to be accounted for in wallets held by both passengers and vehicles themselves.
To expedite the future, many developments shall come related to regulation and certification rules, websites, PR and promotion,
administration, technological components such as aerial vehicles engineering, fuel cells, interiors, motors, landing sites,
autonomy systems, mobile apps, tokens, blockchain, technological solutions for its integration into the entire infrastructure
and various commercial solutions.
The community aims to expand and include and develop the required technologies in parallel with the aerial vehicle’s engineering
and regulation appearing in the key markets, including blockchain technology. To do this, the community created tokens, which
are already an integral part of the future technological infrastructure, as well as websites, models, prototypes, drawings,
certification requirements, visions of interiors, etc., which are already in existence. Tokens make an integral part of the
technology that can already be provided today for the community to maintain it. Blockchain.aero shall become the platform
to tokenize the functions along the value chain for the technology developers to integrate them for the mass urban aviation
network. Tokens are already an existing unit of the growing technological complex, as other relevant
