Volavia

When you're David Beckham (if only), then you would expect that arranging your expensive, complex, multi-leg flights to be simple and most importantly, secure.

In the Private Aviation industry today however, this is not the case. High Net Worth individuals, sports stars, movie stars, corporate executives - they are all prime targets of hacking and in Private Aviation systems, such events are all too common.

Volavia is set to change that through the power of Blockchain technology and an innovative 2-token cryptocurrency system - the VOL and AERU.

Volavia + Beach

Learn how Beach is providing technical advisory at CTO level and has become part of the founding team.

Start with a top CTO

We work with Founders to design and build the appropriate architecture for the business today whilst planning for future growth.

  • Abstractions

    We understand the technology deeply, we understand concepts and can communicate with non-technical stakeholders.

  • Micro-Services v Monolith

    We know when to choose one archtectural pattern over another, rather than picking something because of the hype.

  • Flexible Resources

    Internal teams, distributed teams, near-shore outsourced support, remote global hubs - we architect for flexible resourcing for maximum effectiveness.

  • Proven Workflows

    Design thinking, test-driven development, SAFE Agile development, lean UX, lean startup, scrum, kanban - we've done it all and figured out what works best for our teams.

  • Agile & Iterative

    We work with experiment-driven processes in short cycle iterations - gaining the power of sustained incremental gains.

Beach is part of a strong network of experienced CTOs, each with highly specialised skillsets and experience that we can tap into on your behalf.

    We provide the tools and process for making sense of it all.
