Waterloo, ON – July 8, 2014 – Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, is partnering with Venyo at the 49th Farnborough International Air Show in Hampshire, England. Venyo, a designer and manufacturer of professional flight simulators, will be demonstrating their first FTD pre-production unit which integrate Navtech’s navigation databases at the air show from July 14-20.
The Farnborough International Air Show is the world’s largest exhibitions and air displays that features a wide array of business platforms within the aviation industry. This is a great event to showcase Venyo’s innovative flight simulator before it debuts in the market in 2015.
By partnering with Navtech, Venyo’s flight simulator will utilize its navigation database which provides high fidelity data based on the industry standard ARINC 424 specification.
“The quality of a pilot’s training depends largely on their instructor’s experience. However, an instructor must be able to use the best educational tools available to pass on their knowledge,” explains Fabrice Cornet, CEO of Venyo. “This is why Venyo partners with Navtech to ensure the highest possible internal integrity and accuracy of the navigation databases that offer an unparalleled flight experience of our revolutionary professional flight simulator.”
“We’re happy to partner with Venyo and their flight simulators. Navtech Navigational Databases provide them with accurate and reliable data that they need in a timely manner,” states Robert Kernahan, Vice President, Charts and Navigation Data Production and General Manager of UK Office. “It is the cornerstone of Navtech’s Navigation Data products. By partnering with Navtech, Venyo can combine our data with their flight simulators for a reliable and innovative product within the market.”
Navtech navigation databases are used for flight simulators such as Venyo’s, but also for flight management systems, ground positioning systems, airspace modeling, and air traffic systems. These databases are available for a wide variety of aircrafts including helicopters to light aircraft, business jets and wide-body jets. Navtech Navigation Data products are used by over 200 airlines.
