ABOVE: The investment group says the startup’s product “delivers important value to smaller airports”

Sussex-based investment group South East Angels has invested in Skyverse, an Air Traffic Control tech company aiming to streamline and simplify the sharing of information through a cloud workflow solution.

Believing that ‘the world of aviation will be transformed into a new era of simple, internet-based communications,’ Skyverse is developing online tools to ‘replace Air Traffic Services’ paper-based processes and a significant volume of repetitious radio and telephone communications.’ This is subsequently intended to lower controller and assistant workload while improving safety and situational awareness.

The modernised solution ‘provides more data, transparency, and insight to a control tower,’ allowing regional and general aviation airports to access ‘the same standard of tools typically delivered to the major international airports,’ explain South East Angels, who describe themselves as ‘a group of experienced entrepreneurs and investors’ looking to ‘back exceptional founders building impactful companies’.

‘This seed investment marks a significant milestone in Skyverse’s journey, and is an exciting step towards realising their vision of improving the way control towers operate around the world,’ explained the investment group. Kristina Pereckaite, Managing Director at South East Angels, added: “The Skyverse team have identified a market desperately in need of modernising”.
