AviPLAN™ - Empowering Aviation Planners

With renowned market-leading technology at its core, AviPLAN delivers a unique feature-set tailored to meet the specific challenges faced by today's airside planning, design and operations professionals.

The culmination of in-house airport planning knowledge as well as feedback from experienced planners from all corners of the globe, AviPLAN functionality is focused on two primary areas; aircraft maneuver simulation and stand planning. This makes the software a dependable tool for analyzing aircraft and support vehicle movements on airport aprons and taxiways, planning aircraft parking positions, assessing stand clearances and jet blast impacts, simulating complex pushback maneuvers and more.

AviPLAN is backed by a global team of experienced training instructors and knowledgeable support technicians to ensure that users maximize productivity, efficiency and accuracy.

ArcPORT - Enabling Informed Management

ArcPORT offers fast-time airport capacity simulation. Simulating, visualizing and evaluating process or system changes, infrastructure modification or expansion requirements or other what-if scenarios ultimately allows stakeholders to make more informed decisions, before incurring significant costs.

With ArcPORT, consequences from managerial choices can be examined and tested virtually, to predict the future performance of key performance indicators and minimize the potential for costly mistakes.

SkySAFE - Ensuring Safe Operations

The optimum tool for obstacle clearance compliance. SkySAFE is an AutoCAD®-based application designed to assist with every airport's challenge of protecting approach and departure paths. The software allows planners to precisely control and establish the multitude of existing or potential obstacles in an airport's surrounding environment in order to ensure compliance with ICAO or FAA regulations.

SkySAFE effortlessly creates the various Obstacle Limitation/Clearance Surfaces through a series of built-in algorithms and analyses the impact on these surfaces of any obstacle or terrain data that has been defined or imported.

  • Specify single or multiple runway environments
  • View surfaces graphically in AutoCAD® in 2D or 3D
  • Define / import fixed or temporary obstacles and import terrain data
  • Integrate output into Airport Layout Plans or obstacle maps

Aircraft Data Viewer - Aircraft specifications at your fingertips

Aircraft Data Viewer is a Windows® application which presents specifications on more than 450 commercial and military aircraft in one convenient, user-friendly resource.

The software eliminates the need for professionals to spend precious time searching the internet or in manufacturer manuals and planning documents for relevant specifications and ensures that airport operational staff, planners, engineers, consultants and other aviation professionals are working with accurate and up-to-date aircraft data from one source.

  • View aircraft dimensions, steering characteristics, door locations, jet blast impact figures, ground service connection points and ground support vehicle positions
  • Sort aircraft based on criteria such as minimum turning radius or overall length
  • Compare the main dimensions of up to five aircraft
  • View, print or export data to PDF

Available White Papers


For Many Airports, MARS Is Closer Than Ever 06 February 2014 Multiple apron ramp systems (MARS) are a way to help airport traffic move more efficiently. They can help planners decide where to direct inbound aircraft by analysing whether or not they would fit into vacant spaces at a gate. Transoft's AeroTURN is a software package that will make it much easier to get planes from the apron to the gate.


Emirates Airline Adds Another Dimension 06 February 2014 Emirates has been growing in recent years, and has increased the number of destinations it travels to and pilots it recruits. This meant that there were a lot of places where the airline was not familiar with airport layouts. To make things easier, it teamed up with Transoft Solutions in order to use the company's three-dimensional mapping technology.


Designing Apron Areas for Today and Tomorrow Using Aeroturn Pro 28 January 2013 Manchester Airport is the third busiest in the UK, handling 18.8 million passengers and 167,400 aircraft movements in 2011 across three Terminals.


Ground Control White Paper 12 November 2012 Sophisticated new computer-aided design software is helping airports to meet the challenges of managing the movements of aircraft while they are on the ground.
