In this Quick Start Guide we will walk you through how to update your company information, add personnel, aircraft, customers and vendors to your account. Throughout the guide there will be various links to articles that show detailed step-by-step instructions to ensure your account is setup properly.
ADD COMPANY INFORMATION
The company profile lays out the basic information about your organization such as contact numbers, hours of operations, certificate number and more. If you are utilizing the default quote and trip documents, some of these fields will dynamically pull in if entered (address, phone, email and website). Additionally, you are able to upload your company logo in the profile page which will also dynamically pull into documents that you generate from Avianis.
- Go to My Company > Profile in the main navigation.
- Input all of the relevant information about your company
- To upload a logo, click "Choose File" at the top of the page, select your company logo from your computer and click "Upload" (the logo will appear actual size on documents so please insure the file is scaled accordingly).
4. To upload important company documents (DO-85, Insurance, etc...) drag and drop them from your desktop to the documents section on the right side of the page.
In order for your business users and crew to access Avianis they must be setup in your account. Once created, they will setup their password and login.

4. Enter their name, email and home base airport and click "Save" (the email entered will be their username to access in Avianis). Once they are created, the system will send out a welcome email with a link to setup their password and login unless you uncheck the "Send Email Invitation" box before saving.
NOTE: The link in the welcome email to setup their password will only be valid for 30 minutes. If they have not setup their password within this period of time, they can go to login.avianis.com, enter their email and click the Forgot Password link.
5. When you click "Save" it will take you into the full user profile. On the right side of the page you can set the appropriate roles to ensure they only have access to the areas of the application they need.

In order to begin generating quotes or trips on managed fleet aircraft, setup aircraft profiles. Note: Vendor aircraft are added in an alternate area.
Go to: My Company > Aircraft > [click Create].
On the pop-up Create Aircraft box, the aircraft tail number is entered and then there are 3 options to chose from to start your aircraft page: Use Standard Type Profile, From Aircraft, and Create New.
Use Standard Type Profile
This is the suggested method by Avianis for creating an aircraft page. Selecting Use Standard Type Profile will auto-populate many of the fields on the Aircraft page with values most common for the make/model of aircraft selected as the template. All values by be edited later to accurately reflect the specific aircraft.
Selecting From Aircraft will give the option to copy some information from another Aircraft already created. The values copied over are: Aircraft Type, Homebase, Fuel Type, Regulatory, Trip/Flight Log Preferences, seating information, cruise speed and altitude, Operating Weights, Min Runway Length, Fuel Stop Threshold and Burn, and Flight Time Configuration. All information can be edited once the aircraft is created.
Selecting Create New will create the aircraft page as a blank slate where all information will need to be entered manually. Note: This option would be used if the aircraft type is not available, nor a similar aircraft available as a Standard Type Profile - and there is not a similar aircraft already created.
Trip / Flight Log Preferences
Additional Trip/Flight Log Preferences can be enabled from within the top right corner of the aircraft profile (see below). We have provided a description of each function below.
Requires SIC - An additional check is run on trips for this aircraft to ensure at least one SIC is assigned to each leg on the trip. If an SIC is not assigned, a critical flag will be shown in the trip snapshot.
Additional Crew - No functionality is driven from this designation and it simply for internal reference.
Single Pilot - No functionality is driven from this designation and it simply for internal reference.
Cargo - An additional field will is displayed in the Weight and Balance tab of the flight log for aircraft with this enabled to capture Cargo Weight.
Medical - No functionality is driven from this designation and it simply for internal reference.

Use Tach Meter - Additional fields are displayed on the flight log for aircraft with this designation to capture Tach Start and Tach End.
Use Rotary Log - The rotary log option is intended for helicopters but can be utilized on any aircraft. The Hobbs Start/Stop fields are displayed and the OUT/IN fields are removed. In additional, a T/O 2, LAND 2 and APPR 2 option is added. This would only be utilized if there were multiple take offs or landings done where one was Day and one was Night. For approaches, this allows for multiple approaches to be captured with different Approach Types. These are not required and most likely will be used very infrequently. Two additional fields will also be displayed for Coll. Hobbs Start/Stop if relevant. Finally, an additional tab is displayed for Engine Statistics which allows the user to capture very detailed engine data for the flight leg for each engine.
Use Hobbs Meter - Additional field are displayed on the flight log for aircraft with this designation to capture Hobbs Start and Hobbs End.
Require Hobbs Meter - If Use Hobbs Meter of Use Rotary Log are enabled, this designation will ensure the crew members enter values for these fields before they save the log.
