Flight Operations Performance Software
BAE Systems Regional Aircraft and our collaboration partner Navblue can provide Operational Performance software for Regional Aircraft types, allowing customers to produce regulated take-off and landing weight charts. Marketing software CAPECS is also available for estimating sector time, fuel burn and payload. Additionally the analysis can also be carried out using the software by us at BAE Systems Regional Aircraft and the RTOW and RLW charts provided to customers as required.
Further to this, through another of BAE Systems Regional Aircraft collaboration partners, PACE, the PACE CI OPS is also available. This is a flight optimisation tool which can be used to supply different speeds and flight levels hence optimising fuel efficiency and savings for the operator.
- We also offer various guides to help improve your operation.
- In addition a variety of JETSETS flight safety publications are available.
