OneSky will soon become a tenant partner of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Research Park in Daytona Beach by creating the OneSky Innovation Center within the John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex on the ERAU campus. The OneSky Innovation Center plans to tap into the talent of Embry-Riddle students focused on information technology studies to help develop the technologies that will become key to advancing private aviation.

Projects planned for the Innovation Center include the Internet of Things (IoT), aviation cloud computing and applying the latest concepts in Big Data to OneSky's nearly 500 terabytes worth of stored information. These initiatives will complement the companies' existing innovation that includes feature-rich new Apple iOS mobile apps developed for Flexjet, Sentient Jet and Skyjet – three of the flying companies OneSky IT supports.

The center at Embry-Riddle will also integrate into the greater OneSky IT team through video conferencing, collaboration tools such as Slack and leading technology workflow software.
