AeroPortalTM was first established in 1997 by George Saounatsos as a personal webpage under the title of "Aeronautical Site."

At a time when the concept of personal 'blogs' was unknown, and online aviation publications were limited, the site intended to share with the aviation community specific insights and professional practices on topics published in aviation journals. Moreover, it established a comprehensive collection of links to key aviation domains, providing quick and centralized access through a single page to the latest aviation developments, aeronautical publications, major companies and organizations, statistical information and databases.
