COMSOFT completes FPL2012 upgrade in Saudi Arabia

CADAS upgrade and installation of an FPL2012 convertor is final piece of a multi-stage project for the General Authority of Civil Aviation
Jeddah/Saudi Arabia, July 2012 COMSOFT has added the final piece to its major upgrade of Saudi Arabias General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) AMHS systems. In a project that began last year and included an upgrade to CADAS with the AIDA-FPL convertor, GACA is ready to comply with ICAOs new Flight Plan 2012 mandate.

In a far sighted decision, GACA ordered COMSOFTs AIDA-FPL convertor to meet the deadline for ICAOs Flight Plan switch in November 2012, and it was the first ANSP to request a bi-directional functionality that could communicate not only from Present to New format, but also from New to Present; this at a time when the standards for conversion had not been set. This bi-directional enhancement has since become a standard feature of COMSOFTs AIDA-FPL convertor, another reason for its growing popularity among ANSPs.

COMSOFTs project manager, Andreas Boehm, commented on this successful achievement: The project has demonstrated the versatility and flexibility of COMSOFT and our products in being able to meet new and unexpected requests from customers and innovate a solution in a short time to serve their needs.

A large number of ANSPs worldwide already use COMSOFTs AIDA-FPL converter, which is available either as a standalone appliance or as a software module for COMSOFTs market-leading AMHS/AFTN node AIDA-NG.
