New App Aims To Enhance Flight Planning, Ops

The integration of Aircraft Performance Group’s (APG) runway performance data for more than 350 aircraft profiles and 9,000 monitored airports with RocketRoute’s global routing and filing capabilities and Seattle Avionics’ global ChartData has resulted in the development of iPreFlight Genesis Pro, a collaboration between the three AFV Partners companies. A web- and iPad-based application, iPreFlight Genesis Pro provides coordination between dispatchers and flight crews for global routing, runway performance, weight and balance, and flight plan calculation and filing.

In turn, the new system eliminates inefficient telephone calls, significantly decreases operational change reaction times, and improves communication accuracy between dispatchers and flight crews, according to AFV Partners.

“iPreFlight Genesis Pro uniquely combines the assets and intellectual property of all three companies within our aviation group to optimize the flight route based on multiple parameters such as type of aircraft, load factor, weather conditions, and many more data points to deliver a high return on investment solution with a meaningful sustainability impact due to an optimized fuel burn profile for our customers,” said AFV Partners founder, chairman, and CEO Tony Aquila. “This solution is the first of many that will leverage the people, technology, and data across APG, RocketRoute, and Seattle Avionics to create new products that will have a lasting positive impact on aviation and the environment.”
