AviationManuals SMS software, known as ARC, as well as SMS manual development services are now available via uvGO, Universal’s do-it-yourself app and online tool that allows business aircraft operators to easily plan, build, and manage successful missions worldwide–from beginning to end. Available as a native iPad app, uvGO gives users complete do-it-yourself control over their trips, as well as the ability to optionally coordinate trips through their dedicated Universal trip support team.
“We developed a new relationship with AviationManuals to help further drive down our clients’ operating risk by incorporating ARC seamlessly into uvGO,” said Denio Alvarado, Executive Vice President, Universal Weather Operations. “We chose AviationManuals because it is 100 per cent dedicated to offering the latest in SMS technology and tools.”
ARC is an iPad-friendly, flexible online solution for submitting, storing, and analyzing SMS data. The software serves as a central location to store files, complete risk assessments, post company news, as well as manage read and initial logs. Universal can now directly access appropriate ARC flight risk assessment and hazard incident forms from the uvGO app for a seamless experience.
ARC software is used by Fortune 500 flight departments, management companies, and private aircraft operators worldwide. ARC can easily be implemented within a few business days. AviationManuals provides free training and offers ongoing support through a full-time, dedicated IT team.
“AviationManuals is excited to work with Universal Weather and Aviation to provide a shared Flight Scheduling and SMS environment. The integration between our ARC software and Universal’s uvGO app will greatly increase access to quality SMS for operators worldwide,” said Mark Baier AviationManuals president.
