Trip support and services is something that Universal Weather & Aviation prides itself on. The latest addition to the ever growing services is an update of its UVTripPlanner – last year saw the planner arrive on CD and in web form, now you can use it in your EFB (Electronic Flight Bag).
“Combined with our three print editions, Europe, Worldwide and North America, plus the CD-ROM version our clients will always be able to stay connected,” says Randy Stephens, director of product management. “The EFB and online editions were designed specifically to meet clients’ changing needs for convenient and updatable airport and ground service information.”
These digital editions are able to operate from larger databases than the paper counterparts and for example contains approximately 25,816 airport, heliport and water landing sites. Something like 8,930 FBOs and handlers. 24,528 runways and helipads.
And it is not just Universal that feel its product has true value, but Advanced Data Research (booth 1132) pre-load the software onto all units now being shipped. “As the creator of the first commercially-based EFB, we strive to remain on the forefront of innovation. The powerful database and interactive tools of the UVTripPlanner help us reach that goal, and this is just the first phase of an ongoing relationship with more enhancements to come,” says Jeff Geraci, vp business development at Advanced Data Research.
The new EFB version will operate on any EFB and can work both inside the aircraft and portably with a laptop.
