GenAv Systems and MTSU Partner for State of the Art Training


Murfreesboro, TN, May 22, 2003 -- When GenAv Systems, the pacesetter for general aviation booking systems, launched its GFO system - a total solution package for flights schools and charter operators- earlier this year, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Murfreesboro, TN tracked it’s takeoff!  MTSU, dedicated to incorporating innovative and cutting edge technologies into its aviation flight program, knew it had found the computerized management tool it had been seeking.  Gerry Garcia, Flight School Manager, stated, “Our “pencil-and-paper” method worked great when we had 10 airplanes and 35 students, but our incredible growth necessitated an upgraded and integrated system.  GenAv’s GFO not only ensures a more efficient operation; it also compliments our proactive approach to use the newest technology in meeting tomorrow’s aviation challenges.” 

MTSU’s commitment to meeting these challenges is recognized and appreciated by Congressman Bart Gordon (TN-6).  Congressman Gordon, an advocate for aviation flight safety, recently secured $720,000 in federal funding for MTSU to test and demonstrate a cutting-edge flight safety program designed to automate air traffic control.  Funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the goal is to help the airline industry move air traffic control from the ground to the cockpit and to shift more air traffic to smaller less used airports.  Congressman Gordon knows this involves generating training programs that incorporate emerging technologies to pilots.  “MTSU is in a great position to take the lead on this kind of new training,” he said. 

GenAv’s GFO system will help MTSU efficiently implement and oversee all aspects of its training programs.  Its software facilitates and manages all data associated with scheduling, maintenance, accounting, pilot shop sales, and internet access for students, instructors, and managers.  System customization is easily achieved; and, components are integrated, permitting the sharing of information between system users.  This results in one-time data entries – one of many GFO time saving features.  GFO also increases safety by systematically and transparently checking pilot medical data, date/type last flown and aircraft flight restrictions.  Indeed, GFO and MTSU are a natural match!

Stephane Way, President of GenAv Systems states, “Flight schools and charter operations using GFO are enjoying more dynamic operations; and, are enthusiastically endorsing GFO.  Today’s training facilities have no use for yesterday’s cumbersome and time intensive tracking/management systems.  GFO is customized to meet needs.  It’s options result in less operational delays, less paper usage, greater analytical tools to assess numerous business operations, and greater employee and customer satisfaction.  The bottom line is that GFO works!  Not only does it bring our training facilities into the high tech world, it also makes dollars and much sense given the current challenges of our industry.  GenAv Systems is proud to be a part of MTSU’s innovated flight program.”
