GEORGETOWN, Delaware, January 24, 2020 – ALOFT is the industry leader in auxiliary fuel systems for commercial, VIP and special mission aircraft which can extend the range of the 737NG aircraft by as much as 50%. Avix Aero’s Strut Data Collection System (SDCS) is the industry’s first full-cycle weight and center of gravity validation system.
When installed together, these systems provide the operator with real-time, automated and accurate aircraft weight and CG information which enables the more precise use of available payload and additional fuel for extended range operations. With this operational flexibility, airlines can apply their existing 737NG assets across a broader spectrum of routes in their networks. Additional benefits include optimized CG, improved reliability and on-time performance, and digital history of accumulated data for landing gear to support aircraft health monitoring and curtailment relief.
Jim Bohlman, President of Avix Aero, noted, “As Avix brings its now-STC certified product to market, we found ALOFT to be an obvious choice of partner due to our complimentary products and similar mindset to solve issues and leverage the full value of aircraft assets through optimization. Their work with the Boeing Business Jet fleet gives them access to clients who always seek to ‘lead the fleet’ with adoption of innovative solutions and aircraft enhancements.”
Matt Hill, VP of Sales and Marketing for ALOFT, said, “ALOFT is always looking for innovative product offerings to enable and enhance aircraft capability for our broad range of customers. As 737NG and VVIP experts, we found that the SDCS from Avix provided a compelling value to operators who seek to fully utilize their aircraft capabilities and optimize its performance as an asset in their fleet. Optimized center of gravity and W&B is a longstanding industry challenge for which Avix has created an elegant and non-invasive solution. We’re anxious to educate our customers on the product.”
