In addition to broadening Garmin's presence in commercial aviation, AeroData's extensive load planning, performance and flight path analysis expertise significantly enhances and expands our digital services portfolio.”

Offering performance data to more than 70 percent of airline flights in North America, AeroData supports all major commercial aircraft including Airbus, ATR, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer.

“AeroData provides aircraft performance data for more than 20,000 commercial flights each day, and we are excited to further expand this reach to commercial and business aviation customers worldwide within the Garmin aviation ecosystem,” says Terry McDonough, AeroData president. “Garmin's leadership position in flight deck and digital technologies make it an ideal fit for AeroData and our customers.
