Northern Lights to Shine on GenAv Systems’ Flagship General Aviation Flight Office Product


Sidney, BC, August 9, 2006 -- GenAv Systems, Ltd. is headed north! GenAv representatives have been traveling a great deal recently in support of industry partner events and to further promote its stellar products. Next stop, Anchorage! GenAv’s President, Stephane Way, will showcase GenAv’s Flight Office, its latest general aviation flight training product, at the University Aviation Association’s (UAA) “Taking Collegiate Aviation to the Xtreme” fall conference, September 27-30, 2006 in Anchorage (see

GenAv Systems has long supported UAA and its goals. Says Way, “I can’t think of anything more crucial than educating our industry’s future workforce. We can make improvements to the aerospace system and to advance technology but we also need to focus on preparing aviation’s future leaders. UAA does this.” UAA is the voice of collegiate aviation education to its members, the industry, government and the general public. Through the collective expertise of its members, this nonprofit organization plays a pivotal role in the advancement of degree-granting aviation programs that represent all segments of the aviation industry. Says Way, “UAA and GenAv Systems both strive to meet the ever-changing needs of the general aviation industry. We’re a natural fit and I look forward to demonstrating GFO's exceptional capabilities at UAA’s conference.”

GFO demonstration highlights will include the system’s efficient integration with Mind Your Own Business (MYOB), a popular accounting system developed by Sage Software. MYOB is used widely throughout Australia and North America. A new multi resource pane view, the ability to view more than one resource schedule at one time (thereby maximizing screen real estate), will also be highlighted. Way will be using Windows’ new Vista operating system throughout the demonstration. Windows Vista scheduled to be available on the market in February 2007.

GFO-I was initially introduced in January 2001 as a total software solution package for flight training schools and charter operations. Designed to facilitate effective and comprehensive management of all data associated with scheduling, maintenance, accounting, pilot shop sales, and internet access for students, instructors, and managers, GFO became a quick hit with progressive flight schools and charter operations. Today, GenAv’s flagship product’s evolution includes: integrated components that facilitate customization and allow information sharing within the designed system; increased safety and security through such benefits as systematic and transparent checking of pilot medical data, date/type last flown, aircraft flight restrictions, positive pilot identification, driver record, immigration status, and more; and, export capability that allows customers to effortlessly export GFO information to the QuickBooks accounting system without data re-entry. Its many user friendly functions free up time, reduce paper usage, and provide analytical tools to assess numerous business operations. GFO simplifies operations that have historically been cumbersome to track and manage, makes today’s needed transactions easy, and provides integration options for tomorrow’s challenges. Ask for a demonstration and see why GFO is the indispensable management tool for today’s flight schools.
