Transoft Solutions has released AviPLAN 4.0, the latest iteration of its software solution for airside planning, design, and operations professionals.

The updated AviPLAN offers several new and improved functions, including the addition of VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft in the AviPLAN aircraft library. This enables users to simulate and design vertiports that are compliant with the preliminary EASA and FAA guidelines.

Another new feature is the refined and expanded conflict analysis with apron safety line detection and reporting functionality. Users can now detect and annotate distances between ground markings and airplane extremities to simplify regulatory compliance checks at the stand and report back to authorities.

A rotation option has been introduced, allowing flexible movement and rotation of stand lead-in lines around user-defined points or origins. Further enhancements also mean users can now more accurately model pushback operations and procedures using the newer type of airplane mover, the TaxiBot.

Transoft Solutions is keeping its software up to date with the latest industry standards, and the latest AviPLAN update is fully compliant with AutoCAD and Civil 3D 2024 and conforms to the latest ICAO Annex 14 Volume 1, Ninth Edition, July 2022, Amendment 17.
