OzRunways and TracPlus collaborate to deliver EFB-based global messaging

30 April 2018

TracPlus Global and OzRunways announced today an agreement to deliver global airborne messaging using OzRunways EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) and TracPlus’ portable RockAIR tracker. Under this agreement, OzRunways users will be able to send and receive text messages globally using the Iridium satellite network and cellular networks.

By pairing OzRunways with the RockAIR tracker, the popular moving map application will also support new collaboration and coordination tools being developed by TracPlus.

“We’re delighted to be working with OzRunways to showcase our Globally Connected Cockpit philosophy.” said Chris Hinch, Chief Innovation Officer at TracPlus. “For thousands of pilots, OzRunways is the preferred tool in the cockpit, so instead of writing yet another app for pilots to juggle, it made much more sense to help OzRunways talk to the RockAIR.”

“GPS is an incredibly useful tool, but it can only tell us so much” Hinch continued. “By pairing OzRunways with the RockAIR, we can get a much better sense of the mission at hand, and convey that in a way that is more clear than just dots on a map.”

“We’re excited to provide this new capability to OzRunway customers.” said Bas Scheffers, managing Director of OzRunways. “Many of our emergency services and fleet customers already use TracPlus,  so with this partnership we can deliver them exciting new communications features and services in OzRunways using the RockAIR.”

“OzRunways is proud to be the #1 EFB of choice in Australia and New Zealand.” Scheffers continued “and innovations like this are going to play a major role as we continue to expand into other markets around the world.”
