OSHKOSH, WI – JULY 27 2023– During the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, AVIATIZE - the All-in-One Software Platform for General Aviation - announced today that Kilo Charlie Aviation out of Kansas City has chosen AVIATIZE’s dedicated flight school platform to manage the school’s processes, students, instructors, airplanes and more.
Kilo Charlie Aviation is located near Kansas City at New Century Air Center, a joint civil-military general aviation airport. The school has 96 students and was founded in 2020 by Robert Renfro and Drew Konicek. The school also just announced that their fleet will grow over the next 2 years with the addition of 30 TECNAM aircraft.
The AVIATIZE suite is a unique product for flight schools. The customizable all-in-one system for flight schools is the ideal platform for those who otherwise require 6 or 7 separate applications, or use software not much geared towards general aviation such as airline software or spreadsheets. With AVIATIZE flight schools can actually start looking to optimize their operations and to increase overall bottomline and efficiency by having the data from key processes in one application. AVIATIZE is not just a scheduling software. It combines scheduling with student progress and grading, indepth maintenance planning, safety, real-time compliance, digital libraries, billing, reporting, and so on. What is more, the platform comes with a native mobile app (iOS /Android) so that students and instructors can connect to the system in the most efficient way possible.
For AVIATIZE it is the next step in its expansion to the US market after its opening of the US office in Scottsdale, AZ.
Tom Verbruggen, CEO AVIATIZE, says “We are very excited about having Kilo Charlie Aviation joining the AVIATIZE community. It is clear that they are looking for operational excellence and innovation so they can grow further and I am happy that we can help them achieve that. This also shows that the values we deliver to flight schools are recognized in the US.”
Robert Renfro, COO of Kilo Charlie Aviation says “There are very few specialists in the flight training industry in terms of technology, and AVIATIZE is one of them. The level of customization and integrations that they provide simply does not exist for mid and large size flight schools. It is exactly what we are looking for to provide deeper optimization of our business and connectivity for our students.
In fact, if we wanted to make the ideal solution for ourselves, it would probably have looked like AVIATIZE.”
Drew Konicek, Chief Business Officer at Kilo Charlie Aviation adds “At Kilo Charlie aviation we strive to provide the best student experience in the industry. Having the opportunity to provide such a powerful technological upgrade to our students is exciting.”
