Although 80 percent of its customers are European, U.K.-based flight planning service RocketRoute says it is experiencing rapid growth in the United States.
Begun in 2009, the service provider now claims 120,000 registered users worldwide. Available online or via app, RocketRoute offers access to handling providers, and fuel suppliers for free, and much more. For example, overflight and other permits can be obtained, as well as airport slot times, catering, hotel booking, and ground transportation.
RocketRoute’s MarketPlace service plan lets individual users, schedulers, dispatchers, and flight departments prepare and manage flight plans, consolidate invoices, and automatically optimize routes within FAA or Eurocontrol airspace. Like the private plans, MarketPlace comes with a free trial period.
Don’t want to do the work yourself? Then RocketRoute’s concierge service will do the planning for you.
RocketRoute announced an agreement with Blue Sky Network, a satellite tracking provider based in San Diego, California, on Oct. 10. The partnership will lead to integration of the SkyRouter with RocketRoute's flight planning tools.
