Flight Operations Performance Software


BAE Systems Air Prestwick and our collaboration partner Navblue can provide Operational Performance software for Air Prestwick 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 Air Prestwick and the RTOW and RLW charts provided to customers as required.



Further to this, through another of BAE Systems Air Prestwick 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.


  •  JETSETS flight safety publications are available.
