Pre-Flight Planning Software
4D-VCPLAN® is an refinement of 2D-VCIPLAN® and also resides within an airline's flight planning computer system. It simultaneously determines the optimal routing as well as the vertical profile (speed and altitude) to minimize costs (fuel, time, and ATC navigation charges). Changing the Cost Index will dramatically change the optimal routing.
4D-VCIPLAN® also contains the RTA feature. The required flight time is selected by the operator based on fuel and time costs. 4D-VCIPLAN® then generates the optimal flight profile (speed and altitude) for the chosen flight time.
4D-VCIPLAN® flight plans produce the lowest total cost (combined fuel burn, time costs, ATC navigation charges, etc.). This result is a truly optimal solution.
