ULTRA-NAV Performance Software
What is the maximum allowable take-off weight for your aircraft under these conditions: 5,500ft. elevation, 94 deg. F, runway 36 with winds 050 at 20, 5,000ft. runway, +1.5% slope and a SID gradient of 350ft./nm? ULTRA-NAV Performance Software WILL give you the right answer to this question within seconds! Not only will the ULTRA-NAV Performance Software compute maximum allowable takeoff weight but it will inform you what the limiting factor was (i.e. Field Length, Brake Energy, SID, etc.). To top it off, the ULTRA-NAV Performance Software will then compute and display balanced field length, all "V speeds", gross gradient at 2nd Segment, takeoff thrust setting, max continuous thrust setting and other pertinent takeoff parameters dependent on aircraft type i.e. Falcon, Hawker, Westwind, etc.
Ultra-Nav can also customize weight and balance for your aircraft. Customized software will compute weight, %MAC and C.G. Limits for Zero fuel, Ramp, Takeoff and Landing conditions of your aircraft.
Ultra-Nav Aviation, Inc. has produced Aircraft Performance Software since 1990. Performance Software development initially took place for a corporate flight department operating both a Falcon 50 and a Falcon 900A. Once these two products were exposed to the corporate aviation market, demand for the performance software expanded to the current bizjet fleet listed. Demand has also resulted in Ultra-Nav engaging development plans on every existing, new and upcoming business jet in the market today. Ultra-Nav has also engaged in performance software development for military aircraft.
Serving flight departments across the United States and world, Ultra-Nav has provided many corporate flight departments with a safety tool that allows an accurate, fast and easy way to compute takeoff, landing and weight and balance numbers for any takeoff and landing scenario.
To develop Aircraft Performance Software, Ultra-Nav digitizes and mathematically transforms performance graphs/charts from the takeoff and landing sections of the Airplane Flight Manual into executable algorithms which accurately compute the Takeoff and Landing performance numbers for all permitted combinations of altitude, temperature, wind, runway slope, flap setting, aircraft weight, obstacle, etc..... Customized Weight and Balance algorithms, for a particular aircraft type and serial number, are developed by transforming the fuel moment data and c.g. envelope into mathematical algorithms and hard coding the Basic Operating weight/arm and seat/baggage names/arms into algorithm.
Performance software development plans are ongoing for all bizjet models within the Beech, Citation, Gulfstream, Canadair, Falcon, Hawker, Learjet and IAI aircraft fleet. Operators are contacted as each is completed.
Reviews of the Ultra-Nav Performance Computer have appeared in several professional publications, including the most recent, Aviation International News, March 1998 issue. An interview with the product developer appeared in the Business section of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal on Sunday, April 19, 1998.
