Air Navigation Cloud - A guide to Aviation Fleet Management


Aviation fleet management is a challenge. Making sure your crews are equipped with all of the information they need to complete their mission is where safety begins. Whether you’re flying to North Sea oil platforms, delivering time critical freight in the middle of the night, running a fleet of drones for agricultural surveys or simply standardizing the pilots at your flying club, getting the right information to your pilots in an easily shared and timely format has always been a challenge. That is, until now!

Air NavigationPro is pleased to offer a new tool optimized for aviation fleet management—our Air Navigation Cloud Service. This is an innovative solution for aviation fleet management of any type, from small flying clubs with just a couple of airplanes to larger commercial operators flying in highly complex environments. Through the Air Navigation Cloud Service, your aviation fleet management staff can deliver critical information to your pilots through a single company resource. You’ll be able to synchronize maps, documents and other types of data instantly to all of the iOS devices used by the members of your company or group.


The key features available for aviation fleet management through our new Air Navigation Cloud service include:
  • Create and share waypoints: Share your created waypoints wirelessly to any device. Need to mark a Temporary Flight Restriction for your pilots? Do you need to send a series of waypoints for aerial survey work? It is easy with Air Navigation Cloud Service.
  • Create Airspace: This is especially useful for flight schools and other organizations that need to define operational boundaries. Perhaps you want to designate a practice area for your instructors and students—with the Air Navigation Cloud service, aviation professionals can now create custom airspace areas and share them across devices with ease.
  • Aircraft Profiles sharing: Using the Air Navigation Cloud, aircraft profiles can be shared seamlessly with the other users of your cloud data. Plugging in a new aircraft is a pain point for busy pilots. With the Air Navigation Cloud, pilots can access each individual aircraft’s profile with ease. These profiles can be managed by aviation flight managers, making for a more standardized and safe operation.  
  • Route sharing: Do you have a great sightseeing route that you want to share? What about a safe route around weather or terrain that you want your pilots to utilize? It is easy with the Air Navigation Cloud Service. Just two clicks and the route is visible on any device.
  • Send documents: Document compliance has never been easier if you use the Air Navigation Cloud service. New and revised documents can be sent with a simple click. Aviation fleet management personnel can now be assured that safety critical documents are being received by their pilots in a timely, easy to use fashion.
  • Create obstacles: Aviation flight managers have to ability to mark obstacles and share them with other group members using the Air Navigation Cloud. This is another feature that is especially useful for flight schools and helicopter operators; when a potential hazard is identified, it can be shared easily to all of the devices in the company.
  • Manage Air Navigation Pro add-ons: Account management is a breeze when aviation flight management staff use the Air Navigation Cloud service. When maps or add-ons are purchased for each device, they can be easily viewed through the Cloud account. This allows for professional document auditing and chart standardization that was previously only available through more expensive and complicated subscription services. Now, large airline quality document and chart management is available to companies and organizations of any size—in the form an intuitive and easy to use cloud service that is unmatched by any of our competitors.
