Artem Degtiarov

Founder & Chief Editor

The idea of creating the BLACKLIST.AERO Registry was born as a result of Artem's observation of numberous cases of non-payment by unscrupulous participants in the aviation market.

He clearly understood that defaulters and fraudsters not only enjoy the trust of their counterparties, but also take advantage of the inefficiency of existing legal mechanisms.

Therefore, as Artem says: "The idea to create an effective tool for self-regulation of the aviation industry in the fight against systemic non-payments and fraud was born by itself!"
