FlightPlan free of charge to all operators and flight schools with zero emission/electrically powered aircraft
In a bold move, RocketRoute has confirmed it will offer RocketRoute FlightPlan - its flight planning product - free of charge to operators of electric aircraft.
RocketRoute recognises the part that electric passenger planes can play in reducing aviation's impact on the environment. It is also offering innovative flight training academies access to its FlightPlan product, a cloud based flight planning tool available on both mobile and web.
In a year that has seen the company focused on a number of collaborations to improve sustainability and decision making, this programme is part of its wider strategy of investment in future technologies that includes dedicated research into optimising routes, reducing emissions, and reducing fuel burn.
The announcement emulates the shared vision and core values of its sister company, Victor (part of the Alyssum group) who recently launched their own carbon action initiative, designed to recognise the environmental impact of private aviation.
Uwe Nitsche, CEO of RocketRoute said “We see climate action as our responsibility, and believe that as leaders within global flight planning, RocketRoute can make an important contribution through meaningful environmental stewardship.
"This initiative is unprecedented in its scope, and aims to reduce aviation's impact on the environment, by endorsing electric passenger planes within the next generation of future pilots and operators,” he addd.
