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


AviPLAN Airside Pro carries on where its predecessor, PathPlanner Gate+™, 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.

For advanced gate planning software, look no further

PathPlanner Gate+ includes a unique feature-set optimized specifically to ensure that no aspect of the gate or remote stand design process is overlooked. Users can simultaneously work with multiple Passenger Boarding Bridges, lead-in lines, fixed installation and airplanes to produce a detailed overview of findings, in only a matter of minutes. The software will even automatically calculate and optimize aircraft stop positions based on factors such as the slope of the bridge(s), the distance to the fuel or power supply pits and more. Gate and stand design and optimization has never been more intuitive or accurate.


PathPlanner Gate+ Software Package

Identify potential collisions or safety issues

It is now possible for PathPlanner Gate+ to warn users of potential conflicts or safety issues thanks to the software's all-new Object Proximity Detection capabilities.

Conveniently grouped together with other settings, users are prompted to specify a minimum allowable distance between the Passenger Boarding Bridge and the airplane’s wing, including motors. If an object is detected as being within these limits, the user will receive an alert, together with a measurement between the objects. User-friendly and intuitive, this is just another example of how PathPlanner Gate+ improves efficiencies in the gate design process.





Feature Spotlight


Gates optimized in no time 

Gone is the outdated and tedious process of using spreadsheet models in the gate design process. With PathPlanner Gate+, it is possible to analyze the positioning of dozens of airplanes with just a few clicks or take space efficiency to a new level with a Multiple Aircraft Ramp System (MARS). It is even possible to directly compare existing layouts scenarios with those optimized by PathPlanner Gate+, considering factors such as the number of stop bars, bridge slope, bridge length, or even the pilot’s shoulder position.


Flexible handling of all Properties

A convenient all-in-one Properties dialog is common to all PathPlanner commands. Accessed directly from the Quick Access Toolbar, properties such as layers, colors, fills, line weights and types and more can be handled with ease from within PathPlanner. What’s more, service points such as conditioned air, fuel, potable water and 400Hz can also be switched on or off, as can a great variety of other items such as the appearance of lead-in lines and docked bridges.

Most important of all, Properties can be controlled for an entire group of elements or on an individual basis, e.g. a group of aircraft or individual airplanes. This flexibility means impressive visualizations can be created with just a few clicks of the mouse.
