Stellar, a Silicon Valley startup with 40MM in funding, brings together the most advanced technologies and data science to streamline business aviation for both travelers and fleet operators. The company's advanced flight operations management system combines the comprehensive capabilities of ARINCDirect℠ FOS built by Rockwell Collins with the usability, reliability and maintainability benefits of a modern SaaS architecture.
Stellar approached me in the Fall of 2017 as they were ramping up their efforts to build the first complete flight operations management and global distribution system for business aviation. The original idea was to help Stellar move the needle forward on the product design front while they were searching for full-time design hires, but I ended up working with the product team at Stellar for over six months. During the first few months they’ve hired two full-time designers, but nonetheless we’ve continued our collaboration and together built an impressive MVP, not to mention a comprehensive design system that now drives all things design at the company.
