Friday, PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. announced that it has entered into a contract with Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) for the use of a collaborative version of PASSUR® AirportMonitor™, the industry’s leading airspace education tool for airport communities. FXE, a longtime user of PASSUR software, has used the company’s products for its noise-monitoring program and aircraft identification.

“PASSUR AirportMonitor strengthens our relations with our neighboring communities, creating the trust that comes from transparent and accurate information,” said Clara Bennett, Airport Manager, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. “It represents great progress in the evolution of airport communication, collaboration and coordination – both operationally and in terms of our public commitments.”

Designed for airport websites, PASSUR AirportMonitor provides an interactive display of air traffic and flight information in and around the terminal airspace. It enables residents to view traffic in “near-live” and replay mode and offers a variety of user-friendly online tools designed to promote airspace education, answer questions about specific flight behavior, and promote openness and trust between residents and the airport.

The new version of AirportMonitor includes instant airport messaging, a program that allows the airport to instantly communicate with residents about noise quality. It requires no airport IT involvement and is managed through PASSUR online, password-protected messaging tools. The new technology also includes “My Home Locator” – providing AirportMonitor users the ability to pinpoint their home on the AirportMonitor background map by entering their address, allowing for a more effective assessment of airspace and flight activity in relation to the user’s residence.

Jim Barry, President and CEO of PASSUR Aerospace, commented, “The ability for airports to communicate in real time with their local neighbors on our visual airspace platform is part of the Collaborative Decision Making trend we believe is the future of aviation. Bringing together all industry constituents onto a commonly accessed web platform fed by accurate, reliable, live information to support quicker, better decisions – and open, trusting interaction – is critical to addressing our industry’s most pressing challenges.”
