Navtech Advisory Group

One of our primary corporate strategies is to develop meaningful long-term relationships with customers and partners. With this in mind we have formed the Navtech Advisory Group made up of select customer and partner representatives.  This group met for the first time May 20th, 2010 with Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) as a topic of interest. Since then, topics have included Fatigue Risk Management, flight planning integrations into airline operations systems and speakers from industry leading companies.
