The company was founded in 2011 and is an inspirational tale for start-ups in aviation and other industries. The man behind the company, Kenneth Jeppesen, is a trained pilot, flight instructor and former Sergeant in the Royal Danish Airforce. It was back in 2010, when on his way to a marathon in Amsterdam with friend and software developer Benjamin Jørgensen, that he realized that there were many factors which hampered the ease of an acquisition of a pilot’s license, including messy logbooks, the unavailability of student folders and educational material. He realized he wanted to find a way that he could make all this information available in one place, and believed his idea could make a huge difference for flight academies all over the world.
History shows that he was right! Furthermore, FlightLogger also started helping AOC already in the early years as these operations faced a lot of the same challenges – being safe, efficient and compliant without time-consuming paperwork!
