AIM partnership launched by GroupEAD and Airways NZ
Media statement
For immediate release
1 July 2014

Christchurch, New Zealand - The first aeronautical information company in the Asia Pacific region has been launched today, in a partnership between GroupEAD Europe S.L. and Airways New Zealand Ltd.

The company, called GroupEAD, brings together industry experts to provide end-to-end aeronautical information management (AIM) solutions.

GroupEAD will supply AIM support and guidance to the wider aviation industry, and provide quality systems to decrease operational costs. The cloud-based data management service removes the need for major investment in a new data system, allowing customers to meet ICAO AIM to SWIM transition requirements in a more cost-effective way.

Heinz-Michael Kraft, CEO of GroupEAD Europe, says that the new joint venture extends the organisation’s European expertise into the Pacific region and leverages the experience of the Airways AIM team.

“Aeronautical information management is quickly changing the way the aviation industry operates, with a new focus on the whole information picture rather than the provision of standard products. This joint venture offers support to regions, states, airports and airlines needing to improve their data distribution and to meet the new ICAO standards,” says Mr Kraft.

Wayne Smith, CEO of GroupEAD Asia Pacific, says that GroupEAD will provide the necessary assistance to organisations preparing to meet the ICAO aeronautical information transition in the coming years.

“We intend to pass on the benefits of our investment in the latest generation AIM technology to our clients, allowing them to avoid the need for significant capital outlay on their journey to SWIM. Clients will be able to choose from tiered services which offer both cloud-based access where they maintain their own data, right through to a totally managed offering. ”

“We have indepth experience and knowledge in supporting ANSPs and Civil Aviation Authorities to implement the highest standards in aeronautical data and procedure design, and we’re looking forward to providing this support to the Asia Pacific region through this new partnership,” Mr Smith says.

The joint venture will provide next-generation AIM and airport data quality services across the region. The company will distribute high quality and accessible aeronautical information, and will enhance the safety and efficiency of aviation in the region. GroupEAD will also offer an advanced and integrated procedure design service, including services based on modern Performance Based Navigation technology.
