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
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
is in a great position to take the lead on this kind of new
training,” he said.
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
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
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.”
