Key Features

  • Builds and analyzes routes and suggests best options for optimized routing. Factors in tankering and other optimization parameters to recommend lowest cost solutions.
  • Auto-computes optimal Operational Flight Plan (OFP) based on latest weather forecast, actual payload data from CRS/ DCS and other company defaults, factoring in operational and maintenance constraints triggered by MEL.
  • Auto-checks and warns crew and dispatchers of any critical weather, NOTAMs and MEL implications on safety and performance.
  • Validates selected route and flight plan and files clearances automatically.
  • Caters for re-routing in-flight to accommodate dynamically changing operational scenarios.
  • Provides a centralized facility to publish trip-kits on web portal or EFB/ EFF applications.
  • Provides visibility of the flight planning activities on a consolidated Flight Information Board, cautioning dispatchers of any critical warnings affecting safe dispatch.
