The vision and team behind Aeyrium and MXTracker

Our vision

The idea for MXTracker came in 2017 when Aeyrium founder Rodney Aiglstorfer, following a successful exit of his software startup, decided to pursue his lifelong passion for aviation. He started what would become Sierra Skyport, a Part 135 air-taxi operator based in the Lake Tahoe area.

Rodney quickly realized the company’s greatest operational challenge was balancing the need for scheduling downtime to conduct routine maintenance with the demands of revenue generation. To avoid missing revenue opportunities, the only options were to add a backup aircraft or to perform maintenance sooner than necessary.

Although software solutions for tracking routine aircraft maintenance did exist, they were far from ideal. All were too expensive for the value they provided, failed to easily complement or integrate with other essential systems, or were hopelessly cumbersome to operate. A better solution was needed–and that solution became Aeyrium’s affordable, mobile-first MXTracker.
