6th MAR 2019 - Vistair Systems, a leading provider of aviation management software, has announced the opening of its North American operations from its base in Texas.

The new North American base will be led by Captain Bart Roberts, an experienced aviation professional with a career spanning over 30 year in the aviation sector. Based out of Grapevine, Texas, Bart as Chief Operating Officer for North America will be looking to develop the Vistair US team in the coming months.

His experience spans both military and commercial aviation with leadership roles ranging from Chief Pilot and Managing Director Flight Operations, at American Airlines, through to his services experience with the US Navy as Commanding Officer of a squadron and retiring at the rank of Captain and VP Flight Operations at JetBlue. Bart also managed to complete a stint in the Dallas police department earlier in his career.

The new North American operations will be looking to expand its reach in the region and build upon its existing relationships which already includes Delta Air Lines.

Established in 2001, Vistair is already acknowledged as one of the world’s leading suppliers of aviation management software. Their DocuNet, document management system (DMS), is already being used by over 40 clients across the world whilst their safety management system (SMS) comprising SafetyNet, RiskNet and QualityNet is embedded in several clients, including Delta Air Lines, DHL (UK), easyJet and Norwegian.

Bart Roberts, COO, Vistair North America comments: “Vistair has long had a great reputation for their airline document management system, DocuNet, alongside formidable safety management technology, and so the opportunity to join the company and lead a North American operation was an easy decision to make.

“It has been a great pleasure working with and alongside a number of iconic North American airlines during my career, so I really believe that there is a great opportunity, through my new relationship with Vistair, to support the delivery of added-value flight operation’s services in this market.”

Bart will work with Vistair’s Business Development Team led by Dominic Clarke and the respective heads of product development, David Hedley, Vistair’s CTO and DocuNet product lead, plus Matthew Spindler, Product Director SMS.

Dominic Clarke, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistair comments: “Vistair has long understood the importance of the American aviation market so being able to recruit someone of Bart’s experience and calibre was critical to our plans.

“Bart is an exceptional and unique aviator with experience of both commercial and military flight operations, plus he is well respected throughout the industry.

“Vistair is extremely lucky to have him and we look forward to working with him to support our North American operation.”

Based in Bristol, UK, Vistair has built up a considerable reputation in the aviation sector with a client base of significant weight that includes amongst others British Airways, Delta Air Lines, easyJet, Norwegian and Qantas. With over 40 aviation clients worldwide Vistair is in a great position to support both new and existing clients in developing their DMS and SMS solutions.
