GPASS General Pilot Aviation Support System – a sustainable aid for

non-commercial pilots

GPASS is a software for planning, preparation and realization of flights using the internal GNSS and mobile data technologies of Apple iPad hardware and similar equipped mobile devices.

GPASS will keep records, perform trainings and simulations, increase safety in emergency situations by means of a safety management system.

GPASS is developed for small and mid size airplanes as well as helicopters.

GPASS is easy to fit inside the cockpit; the required sensor and communication systems, such as acceleration and inclination sensors, are already integrated. 

ESA Business Incubation

GPASS is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system.

In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
