Switzerland-based Daedalean AG is the leader in certifiable AI software in aviation. Eventually, Daedalean’s goal is to create an AI pilot that will measurably outperform human pilots in all their functions.

Presently the company is creating a reliable safety-critical AI co-pilot to enhance flight safety and reduce a pilot’s workload in General Aviation. This technology is the next generation of avionics solutions for situational awareness and flight control, including traffic detection and landing guidance.

Partnering with avionics system providers and working closely with aviation regulators in the European Union and the US, Daedalean is taking the lead in the avionics industry to develop and certify the first-ever machine learning-based avionics systems.

Certification of safety-critical AI-based systems will be a paradigm shift in the aviation and aerospace industry. One of the critical steps for certification is data collection.

Daedalean pilots are flying tirelessly, collecting data to develop the company’s machine-learned applications for situational awareness and flight control.

On September 23, 2022, the Daedalean flight team conducted an air-to-air photoshoot where their data collection aircraft (Piper PA-28RT-201T Arrow IV) starred as a photo model.

The photoshoot took place in the beautiful Swiss Alps in western Switzerland, over and between the mountains Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Matterhorn, and Dent Blanche; above the stunning Aletsch glacier, green Lauterbrunnen Valley, and St.Petersinsel island.

The photo shoot was a collective effort of Daedalean flight team – pilots Louis Schreuder and Mathias Widmer, and engineers Nathanael Kohler and Peter de Lange, who are also experienced  hobbyist photographers.
