NAVBLUE offers N-Flight Planning and N-Ops & Crew solutions for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University student’s training

NAVBLUE joins the Airbus and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University long-term collaboration offering N-Flight Planning (N-FP), and N-Ops and Crew (N-OC) solutions for the student’s training. 

The future dispatchers and aviation industry leaders will receive first-level training with NAVBLUE software. 

The solutions provide ongoing scenarios and situations under an “Embry-Riddle Airlines” environment related to crew management and daily operations, leveling up the student’s skills in Airline Operations, including Maintenance Control (MTC), Air Traffic Control (ATC), and customer service.

N-FP is a flight planning solution that will help the “Embry-Riddle Airlines” to optimize on fuel, time and cost to meet operational needs, while ensuring overall safety and compliance. At the same time, N-OC will enable the “airline” to manage long-term planning as well as day-of-operations with a single highly-configurable system within one application. 

"Embry-Riddle University in Daytona Beach, Florida, is a pioneer in aviation education, and we at Airbus and NAVBLUE are honored to contribute our N-Flight Planning and N-Ops and Crew solutions for the students' training," said C. Jeffrey Knittel, Chairman and CEO of Airbus Americas and an Embry-Riddle alum. "Collaborations like this between industry and academia support today's students as they receive the training they need to lead the aviation industry into the future. Best of luck to the future Dispatchers and aviation industry leaders who will receive first-level training with these Airbus and NAVBLUE solutions!"

Marc Lemeilleur, NAVBLUE CEO, added “through this collaboration, students will be able to experience for the first time Airline Operations, from preparation and monitoring to control and management, in a safe and supervised environment created for them and tuned to their needs”. NAVBLUE’s CEO also thanked “Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for choosing NAVBLUE solutions as the educational basis of the future flight Dispatchers.”

Dr. Alan Stolzer, Dean of the Daytona Beach College of Aviation adds, “As the leading aviation and aerospace university, this collaboration with NAVBLUE ensures that Embry-Riddle students are trained at the highest level. We are grateful to Airbus, C. Jeffrey Knittel and the entire NAVBLUE team for making this happen.
