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


AviPLAN Airside Pro carries on where its predecessors, PathPlanner Airside+ and AeroTURN® Pro 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 Airside 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 all-in-one airside design and operations solution

With a comprehensive object library at its core, including 2D and 3D commercial airplanes and ground support vehicles, helicopters, military aircraft, and Passenger Boarding Bridges, PathPlanner™ Airside+ provides is the ultimate all-in-one airside design solution. Features include:

Object Libraries

  • 150+ realistic 3D airplanes
  • 40+ realistic 3D airport-specific vehicles
  • 50+ realistic 3D Passenger Boarding Bridges variants
  • 400+ commercial 2D airplanes (top, side, front views*)
  • 275+ 2D airport-specific vehicles
  • 1300+ 2D Passenger Boarding Bridges variants
  • 75+ 2D helicopters and military airplanes (top, side, front views*)
  • Passenger Boarding Bridge and Vehicle creation wizards
  • Design (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

Gate and Remote Stand Design

  • Design 2D and 3D gate or remote parking positions
  • Specify apron slope, boarding bridge, lead-in line and gate limits
  • Select bridge options such as stairs and adjustable cab floor
  • Define and adjust bridge operational limits, within original limits
  • Place individual or multiple airplane(s) at desired position
  • Dynamically reposition airplane(s) to monitor, e.g. bridge slope
  • Insert multiple bridges and lead-in lines at the same gate (MARS)
  • Define fixed installation location and radius, e.g. fuel hydrant pits, 400 Hz
  • Select between multiple options for optimizing airplane positioning
  • Create multiple positioning scenarios, e.g. existing vs. optimized
  • View detailed real-time results, incl. warning indications

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
  • Display vertical clearances under airplane wings
  • 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

Object Proximity Detection

  • Analysis of Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) position in relation to wing/motor/tail or other PBBs (if applicable), including a numerical overview of data and warning indication

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
