Air Navigation Manager - 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 Navigation Pro is pleased to offer a new tool optimized for aviation fleet management—our Air Navigation Manager 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 Manager 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 Manager service include:
