Global Air Navigation Industry Symposium, Montreal, Canada | 21 Sep 2011 | By Jeppesen

Jeppesen and Avitech have formed a partnership to offer International Civil Aviation Organization-contracting states of the world an efficient means for managing electronic Aeronautical Information Publications (AIPs).

The partnership will make it easier and faster for states to produce ICAO-mandated AIPs and will enable their transition from traditional product-centric provision of Aeronautical Information Service to more data-centric and systems-oriented aeronautical information management solutions by combining Jeppesen’s unsurpassed aviation data expertise and Avitech’s extensive aviation systems experience.

Jeppesen, known globally for its expertise in gathering and managing aviation source data and producing charts and navigational data, also aids states in creating and publishing their AIPs. The partnership with Avitech will help Jeppesen expand its AIP business by making use of Avitech’s state-of-the-art database and system for producing AIPs quickly, accurately and electronically.

Avitech is the current global leader in installed AIP systems. The partnership gives them access to additional customer opportunities.
