ACCESSING THE PROFILE

Go to: My Company > Aircraft > [select aircraft] > Profile tab.

Account(s)

An aircraft may be associated with one or any number of Accounts, e.g. the aircraft owner. This will allow for quick linking of Quotes, Trips, and other associated data. If one account is associated with the aircraft, when building a trip for that account, the system will auto-select the tail number associated. If there is more than one account associated with an aircraft, the auto-selection function is not available.
Note: See this article on how to add an Account.


DATA FIELDS

Seating

If the Aircraft page was created using a Standard Type Profile, the Pax Seating, Crew Seating, and Belted Lav Seat will auto-populate with the numbers for the most common configuration of that make/model. These numbers should be reviewed and/or edited to be correct for the specific aircraft tail. This information will flag on the Trip Feasibility in the Aircraft section if it is exceeded by passenger count for a Trip.

Cruising Speed and Altitude

If the Aircraft page was created using a Standard Type Profile, the Cruising Speed and Cruising Altitude will auto-populate with average values for the standard of that make/model. If a flight time configuration is not set for the aircraft (see calculating with flight planning and configuration basics), then flight time calculations will be made using these values and the distance as calculated by Great Circle Mapper.

Baseline Landing and Hobbs

Baseline Landings and Baseline Hobbs Meter values should be added before the first logged trip or maintenance event for an aircraft in Avianis to ensure correct tracking within the system. Once flight and maintenance events are logged, the overall log (Current Time) for these aircraft values will equal the Baseline numbers shown on the Profile tab plus all logged Trips for the aircraft. The Baseline numbers (blue) on the Profile tab will not change as flight events are logged and should not be edited once flights are being logged to maintain correct totals.

Operating Weights

The Basic Operating Weight, Max Takeoff Weight, and Max Landing Weight will auto-populate with standard values for the make/model aircraft if the aircraft page was created using a Standard Type Profile. The Max Ramp Weight, Max Zero Fuel Weight, and Max Fuel Capacity will need to be manually entered. This information is only used when creating a tail-specific aircraft profile with SkyPlan through Avianis. If you would like to create a tail-specific aircraft profile, please contact Avianis Support.

Runway/Airport Operating Limits

If the Min Runway Length, Min Runway Width, and Max Airport Elevation values are not satisfied by an airport selected for a Trip with the aircraft there will be an alert in the Trip Feasibility.

Fuel Items

If the Aircraft page was created using a Standard Type Profile, the Fuel Stop Threshold will auto-populate with an average value for the standard of that make/model. An alert will appear in the Trip Feasibility if they are exceeded in a Trip flown by the aircraft. The Fuel Density Unit may be set for the aircraft records.

Default Turn Time

If Default Turn Time is listed as Empty, Trips for this aircraft will automatically use 0.5 hr / 30 min. To enter a custom amount, use the decimal notation (e.g. "0.75" for 45 min). When creating a Trip with multiple legs, this will be the default span of time between the arrival time of one leg and the departure time of the next leg.

Taxi Time

If Taxi Time is listed as Empty, it will automatically use the value provided account-wide in Operations > Settings > Configuration > Taxi Time Variant. If there is a time entered here on the Aircraft Profile, it will override the value in Configuration. To enter a custom amount, use decimal notation (e.g. "0.2" for 12 min). If no taxi time is to be added for an aircraft, input the value of "0.00". Taxi time on a Configuration level and the Aircraft level may both be overridden with a taxi time value entered within a trip on the leg level.

Calculate Winds

When Use Winds is selected, winds will be factored into estimated flight time for a Quote/Trip. When a Quote/Trip for the aircraft is more than 24 hours out from the time the Trip is created, the calculation will use historical winds. When a Quote/Trip for the aircraft is less than 24 hours out from the time the Trip is created, the calculation will use real-time data from WSI. Note: See Calculate with Flight Planning.

Cockpit Phone and Cabin Phone(s)

This information has no functionality and is for record-keeping only. It may be added by request to a custom Trip report.

Instrument Types

This information has no functionality and is for record-keeping only.

Description

This information has no functionality and is for record-keeping only. It may be added by request to a custom Trip report.

SELCAL and Call Sign

This information is for record-keeping, where applicable.

Dedicated Use Start / End

A setting where you can designate the aircraft as being used strictly for Part 135 or Part 91 for the selected date range.

Countries Considered Domestic

Throughout the Avianis platform, there are various settings in Quotes, Trips, and Finance areas that may trigger in the event the aircraft is operating internationally. Enter all countries that should be considered 'domestic' operations for this aircraft. This information is required before you may successfully submit eAPIS.
Note 1: At the top of the Aircraft page (above the Profile tab) the home base for the aircraft may be entered. This will auto-populate the origin airport when creating trips using this aircraft.
Note 2: Previously, when a line item was created for overnights (Overnight Calculation) with the calculation type of International, the line item would apply to any overnights outside of the home base country of the aircraft. Now, Avianis will first refer to countries listed as Domestic Countries here in the Aircraft Profile tab. If no countries are specified, it will then take into consideration the domestic country selection(s) on the company level found in Operations > Settings > Configuration.

Owner Information

The aircraft owner's contact information will be available for the aircraft records for APIS. This information will not be available to email or otherwise utilize within Avianis until they are entered as a contact.

Insurance Information

This information is for record-keeping.

Maintenance Check Dates

This information is for record-keeping. Last Maintenance Check dates will not update/sync with any events logged in the Maintenance area and must be edited manually from the Aircraft page. This includes Last Static Check, Last Weight & Balance Date, Last Avionics Date, Last Altimeter Check Date, and Last Inspection Date.

Flight Manual / FM Revision Information

This information is for record-keeping.

TOGGLES

Minimum Equipment List (MEL)

This information is for record-keeping. Note: If set to No, it does not currently prevent a MEL discrepancy to be created for the aircraft in the Maintenance area.

Owner Approval Required

If set to Yes, it does not currently create an alert in the Trip Feasibility.

Manual Return to Service Only

When Yes is selected, the option to have an automatic return to service on Job Cards for this aircraft will be unavailable / not shown.

Require Approved Vendor or Personnel for Offline Event

When Yes is selected, only vendors marked as Approved will be available to select on Job Cards that require to take the aircraft out of service. Note: This will not affect vendors for airport services.

Restricted

When Yes is selected, an additional field will appear to input any restrictions for record-keeping purposes only.

Flight Time Rounding

When Custom Rounding is Disabled the aircraft with use the rounding settings as provided in Operations > Setting > Configuration. When Enable is selected, additional fields of Estimated Flight Time and Actual Flight Time Rounding will appear. These settings will override the overall Configuration. However, if the rounding option is selected, it will use the same preference (10th of an hour or Up 5 minutes) as selected in overall Configurations.

Billing Expense Status

When Custom is selected for Billing Expense Status, an additional field will appear to the right of the toggle to enter what Expense Status will be used for this aircraft.
