On 6 November 2015, PathPlanner Turn+ was succeeded by AviPLAN™ Turn Pro.


AviPLAN Turn Pro carries on where its predecessors, PathPlanner Turn+ and AeroTURN® 3D, left off to deliver a unique feature-set tailored to meet the specific challenges faced by today’s airside planning, design and operations professionals. AviPLAN Turn Pro’s functionality has been developed and refined over many years, and is the result of knowledge and input from in-house airport planning experts and developers as well as equipment manufacturers, airport operators and consultants from around the world.

The complete aircraft turn simulation solution

Including the largest selection of 2D and 3D aircraft and ground support vehicles in any CAD-based swept path software, as well as world-renowned path planning tools, PathPlanner Turn+ is the ultimate aircraft turn simulation software. Features include:

Object Libraries

  • 150+ realistic 3D airplanes
  • 400+ commercial 2D airplanes (top, side, front views*)
  • 275+ airport-specific 2D vehicles
  • 75+ 2D helicopters and military airplanes (top, side, front views*)
  • Vehicle creation wizardsDesign (critical) airplanes for each FAA or ICAO group
  • Predefined tractor(-towbar)-airplane combinations
  • Ranking and sorting functions for selecting correct critical airplane


* Front and side view not available for selected aircraft

Aircraft and Vehicle Path Simulation

  • Simulate 2D and 3D airplane maneuvers, both forwards and in reverse
  • Perform pushbacks with user- or pre-defined combinations
  • Define and alter speed during path creation, even when reversing
  • Alternate between arc, dynamic arc, direct and oversteer turn types
  • Create paths using FreeDrive, Target, Parallel and Fixed-angle ‘Construct Path’ modes
  • Follow existing ground markings or paths using ‘Follow Path’ mode
  • Alternate freely between turn types/path modes, all within the same dialog
  • View real-time path information, incl. nose-gear angle, traveled distance
  • Start/finish a path by connecting to existing objects using SmartTarget
  • Generate detailed nose-gear or cockpit ground marking designs
  • Animate 2D and 3D maneuver simulations directly in CAD

Airside Design and Operations

  • Display jet blast contours and impact surfaces for various engine thrust levels
  • Display airplane service connections and vehicle arrangements, e.g. fuel, 400Hz
  • Display individual or merged safety clearance box
  • Divide a path into sections, e.g. apron, taxilane and taxiway
  • Define section transitions, e.g. switch jet blast from breakaway to idle

Time-saving ‘Design Tasks’

  • Follow pre-loaded ‘Design Task’ steps to complete a taxiway fillet design

Control and Reporting

  • Alternate between 2D and 3D mode
  • Specify a solid fill of airplanes and vehicles
  • Activate/deactivate and control path elements, e.g. swept surfaces, nose-gear path
  • Define the placement of airplanes or vehicle at multiple points along a path
  • Use default or user-defined FAA and ICAO gear and wing clearances
  • Save property templates for use in future sessions
  • Create a detailed report with graphic and text details

Animation and Presentation

  • Create 2D and 3D presentations incl. individual or multiple simulation sessions
  • Arrange and set start/stop times for each simulation sessions
  • Follow a moving object or pan between fixed camera positions
  • Display static object(s) and path elements before and after animation
  • Select playback speed and display elapsed time in presentation
  • Set frames/second and video codec type to reduce AVI file size
  • Record presentations to AVI for playback using any compatible movie player
