EBACE 2011: Air Support and Aviovision Create Flight Planning and EFB Software Link

 - May 18, 2011, 9:01 AM

Air Support (Stand 842) of Billund, Denmark, and Aviovision (Stand 859) of Leuven, Belgium, have partnered in providing two-way data connectivity between Air Support’s flight planning and crew briefing software and Aviovision’s Aviobook electronic flight bag (EFB) software.

Flight crews can use the flight-planning and EFB software as a “dynamic and updated flight folder in the flight deck,” with live operational flight plans and color-coded flight briefing data. The system provides operators with a “one-chain” IT solution linking their present booking, scheduling and crew system with the PPS flight planning system exported to their EFB.

Users who do not subscribe to the PPS flight planning and crew briefing system but use Aviobook EFB software can still receive aeronautical data services from Air Support PPS through Aviobook since the two companies have a bilateral supply agreement.
