In the aviation industry, the temporary employment of skilled workers such as pilots or maintenance technicians is widespread. In partnership with blockchain enterprise CVProof.com, the online platform Professionals.aerosimplifies the recruitment process by bringing together qualified professionals and employers. Leveraging its partnership, the company is now offering the opportunity to secure licenses and certificates authenticity using blockchain technology – fully automating the recruitment process, management of documents and ensuring the reliability of credential documentation.
Depending on the flight schedule, the staffing requirements of airlines can change drastically at short notice. And also, other employers in the aviation industry, such as airports, maintenance and air navigation servicesproviders or aircraft manufacturers are increasingly relying on the flexible use of resources. “Professionals.aero allows to find the right professionals when you need them – with just one click”explains Laurent Delétraz, Founder of Professionals.aero. On the other hand, qualified professionals such as flight crew, aerospace engineers or maintenance technicians can focus on their core competencies. “The effort required to find the next engagement is reduced to a minimum. Specialists apply for suitable assignments via the platform”, says Laurent Delétraz. Since the launch of the platform at the end of 2016, hundreds of experts from around 60 countries have registered. Temporary assignments and project orders worth more than eight million USD were published on the platform. Now Professionals.aero is taking the next step to expand operations.
Higher reliability and efficiency thanks to blockchain
Together with CVProof.com, Professionals.aero now offers the option of securing licenses and certificates using authenticity validation and check based on blockchain technology.Particularly in the field of aviation, where personnel require multiple renewable licenses, timeliness and reliability of documentation is critical. CVProof.com has developed a uniqueand trustworthy notarization systembased on any public or private blockchain network, among others including the well-known Ethereum blockchain. “Our solution enables to validate in an immutable way the authenticity of any document and to verify from anywhere in a click the information related to the validator. Employers will be able to access the audit trail
of the document that has been validated, offering the guarantees that the candidates vetted by Professional.aero hold reliable and suitable credentials. CVProof’s solution is unique in that sense that it combines both the authenticity of the document and the identification of the validator, providing thus an unrivalled level of trust within our fully public and open Internet world”, explains Ray Chow, Co-Founder and CEO of CVProof.
Fully automating the management of licences
In the aviation sector, but also in other industries such as healthcare or construction, companies employ a high number of licensed personnel. Their licences and certificates must be renewed regularly. Today, the ongoing management of these numerous documents is very laborious, time-consuming and error-prone. In the near future, Professionals.aero and CVProof intend to offer the ability to secure and manage the licences of any number of employees using blockchain, starting with the aviation industry. “Once the documents’ authenticity has been recorded in the blockchain, the entire process can be managed automatically and securely. This will increase transparency, quality, safety and lead to further cost savings for the employers”, says Laurent Delétraz.
Token-Certificates: A blockchain-based solution for schools’ growing demand
In the near future, schools will be required to offer their students not only a certificate in paper form, but also as an authenticity validated digital certificate. “With our unique blockchain-based notarization system, we are capable to issue so-called token-certificates already today. We currently have discussions with various aviation schools that issue licences and aim to offer them an appropriate solution via the Professional.aero platform”says Ray Chow.
