Av-Base Systems Demos WinAir Software

Ontario, Canada-headquartered Av-Base Systems (Booth 1538) is demonstrating the latest enhancements to its WinAir aviation management software. The company touts the program as “a cost-efficient, easy-to-use and structurally integrated maintenance and inventory control system” for the aviation industry.

Recent improvements to WinAir include a feature that helps clients review new parts that are not yet in the system. Also, users now have the ability to see where a part number is being employed in the program’s maintenance template.

WinAir allows operators to set up new aircraft using one of the many maintenance schedule templates built into the software. The software is more than just maintenance and inventory; it also offers a variety of add-on modules that can expand WinAir functionality. These include reliability, accounting portal, web maintenance, labor management, bar codes, billing codes, document management, enhanced RFQs, pick list and sales modules. Most of these modules are included in the Enterprise version of WinAir, but Pro-SQL and Express versions are also available, in which case modules are optional, although not all of the modules are available with WinAir Express.

Subscribers to WinAir also get assistance with system installation and setup, initial training, technical support and product updates.

Av-Base has been developing systems like WinAir for more than 25 years, starting with a DOS program that it says was one of the first digital recordkeeping and live inventory-management systems in the aviation field. Today, the company has 14,000 end users and customers employ WinAir to manage more than 9,000 aircraft. o
