AvPlan EFB : Avalon Airshow – Civil Innovation Award Winner

We are extremely proud to announce that we have been awarded a major innovation award at the 2015 Australian International Airshow! AvSoft Australia today received the Aerospace Australia Ltd Civil Industry National Innovation Award for 2015, recognising it as at the forefront of commercial aerospace innovation.

First presented in 2013, the National Aerospace Industry Innovation Awards are organised by Aerospace Australian Ltd, the not-for-profit foundation that organises the biennial Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition at Avalon Airport in Victoria.

This type of recognition for our work is simply fantastic and a reflection of the commitment, energy and dedication that everyone in our team (both AvSoft Australia staff and our wider testing and product advisory team) put into everything that we do.

Thank you all for your support – we couldn’t do this without you all.

Flight plan messages

We’ve recently introduced flight plan messaging, which is being rolled out for all users at the moment. When your IFR flight plan has been accepted, you will get a message on your device(s) that ATC have received your plan. In addition we send you your expected routing as well. If ATC change your flight planned route, you will see this message and can be ready for the new routing when you call for a clearance.

AvPlan EFB 5.0 (coming in March) will have these revised routing available under Planning, Submit Flight Plan.

The temporary restricted area around Avalon for the 2015 Airshow is now active. Be aware when planning any flying around the area for the next 10 days or so.
