Aircraft Performance Group (APG) signed a new 3-year agreement with the Vista Global group.
APG will continue its long-standing relationship with Vista, the number one on-demand charter company in the world, providing a complete software solution for flight feasibility, runway analysis, and weight & balance. Vista will use APG’s isFlightPossible API complemented by the class-leading iPreFlight Genesis iPad application, with plans for Vista to upgrade to iPreFlight Genesis PRO over the coming months. These applications are used across the entire Vista Members’ fleet of over 360 aircraft.
Vista has expanded its business rapidly, reporting double-digit growth in the first half of 2022, accelerated new client memberships, and has expanded across all markets globally, particularly in the United States. The group includes the leading brands VistaJet, XO and Apollo Jets; its operating partners’ network extends further to XOJET Aviation, GMJ Air Shuttle, Red Wing Aviation, and Talon Air. The groups recently supported the growing demand for its services through the acquisition of Air Hamburg in Germany and Jet Edge in the United States.
“APG is a leader in aircraft performance software for dispatchers and pilots. This, coupled with its excellent and responsive customer support, allowed us to make the very easy decision to continue our relationship,” said Cliff Berrington, director of operations at VistaJet. “We look forward to seeing how iPreFlight Genesis PRO can improve the optimization of our fleet management over the coming years.”
For over 20 years, APG has supported aircraft businesses and pilots with mission-critical flight operations software. Vista will continue to use iPreFlight Genesis as their aircraft performance solution, enabling pilots and dispatchers to determine maximum takeoff and landing weights and perform required weight and balance computations. Additionally, Vista will make use of APG’s isFlightPossible solution to get instant confirmation on the feasibility of any flight and to quickly determine the best aircraft for any mission with minimal input.
“APG is delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with Vista. This contract is a significant step in our commitment to support Vista as they expand globally with outstanding flight operations solutions that allows operators to be safe, efficient and compliant,” stated Mark Stevens, APG head of sales – EMEA. “Additionally, we are thrilled to broaden our relationship with Vista with expansion into our newest iPreFlight Genesis PRO product line. We look forward to working closely with Vista and its companies over the coming years.”
