Central Airwork provide aerial agricultural services across the Victoria territory in Australia.
Here’s all the good stuff
Required adaptable dual cellular and satellite tracking coverage
3/4's of Central Airwork's operation is within cellular range that requires 15 second tracking for compliance. However, the team also operate in extremely remote regions, resulting in a requirement for satellite-based tracking capabilities as well.
This back and forth between cellular and non-cellular regions meant that Central Airwork was in desperate need of a solution capable of providing dual cellular/satellite tracking.

How Central Airwork uses TracPlus
Central Airwork utilise TracPlus's ability to provide dual cellular/satellite tracking coverage to make sure that their craft are visible, regardless of how remote their location is. Having both cellular and satellite tracking also saves them money as the RockAIR automatically switches to the cheaper, cellular option when it is available.
TracPlus also allows the team to manually mark positions and waypoints so that they can note fuel and load sights and airstrips. This information is vital for record keeping and is information they must supply the Department of Chemical Standards to be compliant.
