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


AviPLAN Airside carries on where its predecessors, PathPlanner Airside and AeroTURN® Pro, 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’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.

Fundamentals for any airside planning professional

With a comprehensive 2D object library including commercial and military airplanes and helicopters at its core, PathPlanner™ Airside provides the core tools required for fast and reliable airside design and analysis studies. Features include:

Object Libraries

  • 400+ commercial 2D airplanes (top, side, front views*):
  • 1300+ Passenger Boarding Bridge variants
  • 75+ Helicopters and military airplanes 2D (top, side, front views*)
  • Passenger Boarding Bridge and Vehicle creation wizards

* Front and side view not available for selected aircraft

Aircraft and Vehicle Path Simulation

  • Simulate 2D airplane and vehicle maneuvers, both forwards and in reverse
  • Perform pushbacks with user-defined tractor-airplane 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
  • View real-time path information, incl. nose-gear angle, traveled distance
  • Animate maneuver simulations directly in CAD

Gate and Remote Stand Design

  • Design 2D 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
  • Drag airplane(s) along lead-in line, monitor e.g. bridge slope
  • View detailed real-time results, incl. warning indications
  • Define and/or reposition stop bars, incl. associated airplanes

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

Control and Reporting

  • 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
