RACWA Soars with GenAv Systems!


Perth, Australia, November 30, 2005 -- GenAv Systems is expanding its Australian connection! Already working with the Aeroplane Company in Perth and Professional Helicopter Services in Moorabbin ,GenAv now welcomes RACWA as its most recent Aussie family member! 

The Royal Aero Club of Western Australian (RACWA), the largest flying training organization in the Southern Hemisphere, is ideally situated at Jandakot Airport (the prime General Aviation training airport in Western Australia) only 15 kilometers south of Perth. The Club has built a reputation for excellence since its beginnings with the Australian Aero Club. Founded in 1914 at Point Cooke (representing the Royal Aero Club of Great Britain), the Australian Aero Club was the only organization recognized by the Defense Department for pilot training in accordance with the British system of qualification for a license. The Western Australian section was founded in 1919 with Australian aviation pioneer Major Norman Brearley as its President. The Aero Club of Western Australia was granted the prefix “Royal” to its name that same year. The Professional Pilot Training Centre of RACWA has been operational for over 65 years. RACWA, with its fleet of forty aircraft and specialized staff of aviation professionals, offers a vast wealth of experience in training pilots. Its graduates are found in all areas of Civil and Military Aviation. For more on RACWA, see

RACWA chose GenAv’s Flight Office – the total solution package for flight training schools - to continue providing the best in flight training and services possible. Flight Office ensures users an overall efficient flight office management operation including the systematic and transparent checking of pilot medical and rating status at reservation and dispatch times; the tracking of inactive customer accounts (streamlining debt control); the ability to add optional components for internet access; and, aircraft maintenance tracking and invoicing. Flight Office software increases productivity and enables multi-tasking. It also automatically balances aircraft hours, eliminating manual entries and laborious auditing processes – a cost savings benefit! Flight Office’s integration component will interface effectively with RACWA’s accounting system, ACCPAC, to maximize benefits. Additionally, Flight Office will facilitate RACWA’s compliance with upcoming legislation regarding photo and aviation records. RACWA, through Flight Office program capabilities, looks forward to increasing the value to its members in various areas, including expediting processing resulting in benefits such as advanced notification of currency and flight and medical renewals. Electronic student files are also on RACWA’s horizon. With GenAv’s Flight Office, RACWA is keeping its edge on student training! 

Stephane Way, GenAv Systems President, reflects, “Aviation is a passion. It’s an honor for me to be able to work with others in the industry to promote flight in the most efficient way possible. It’s also very gratifying to know that the prestigious Royal Aeroclub of Western Australia chose GenAv to continue its tradition of top-notch flight instruction.”
