WEBSTER, TX, October 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Colt International is set to reveal OFP, the next generation in online flight planning and trip support technology. Full details will be given at a press conference at NBAA on Oct. 21 at 9 a.m. in Press Room 1 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.---
"We developed OFP to deliver a product of greater value to our loyal customer base," said Malcolm Hawkins, Colt's co-founder and president. "Without exception, our customers testing this product have said OFP is seamless and intuitive."
Since its founding in 1999, Colt has earned a reputation as a global leader in international trip support and aviation fuel services. It has evolved over the past 14 years to add value to its services through the development of key technologies such as eFuel, Trip View and now OFP.
This technology puts the control back in the hands of pilots, dispatchers and schedulers with unparalleled access to powerful trip planning tools, key data and graphical information. Harnessing the power of Google Maps and Google Earth, OFP renders flight details, such as route, altitude and weather in 3D rather than text. This is displayed side-by-side with key data, such as regulatory requirements, fuel quote/set-up and airport information.
OFP pulls together features never before aggregated and offers them holistically in a convenient, timesaving, all-in-one tool. It stands apart in the industry, providing rich data that ensure customers know more before they go. Using this innovative system, customers have the power and access to:
File domestic flight plans for free
Click, drag and drop to build graphical routes
Easily build itineraries
Secure regulatory requirements - permits, slots, etc.
Ensure trip quality with visual display of trip tasks and requirements through an easily navigable dashboard
Quickly modify trip details
Achieve greater situational awareness and understand terrain and potential challenges at a glance with graphics-rich renderings powered by Google Maps and Google Earth
Take advantage of integrated ancillary tools, such as Aircraft Performance Group's weight and balance and runway analysis and Satcom Direct's datalink communications
