We believe the flexibility of the RocketRoute service will assist them with their operation, with improved communication with crew through our dedicated apps. The ability for Elite Jet to access Airport Charts and request handling directly through the RocketRoute service, means that they are able to further reduce their costs without additional service providers being required. We look forward to providing further functionality in RocketRoute in the coming months.”

Steve Anderson, CEO of Elite Jet says “We have been impressed by the RocketRoute system. It is a great fit for our operation and we can see it generating many thousands of dollars of cost savings and efficiency improvements for our business over the next 12 months.  For our VIP crews on the road, a route change in Africa often made it difficult to get the relevant documentation to our crews, now they can handle these off their mobile devices as they need and see fit. When it comes to our short notice air ambulance flights, RocketRoute is the Next Generation in mobile flight planning, allowing crews to complete their flight planning duties off their mobile phones from home or enroute, without the necessity of a computer or tablet- it’s a Godsend!
