Vista Global Group has signed a three year agreement with flight operations software solutions provider Aircraft Performance Group (APG), continuing a longstanding relationship for flight feasibility, runway analysis and weight and balance software. Vista will use APG’s isFlightPossible API and its iPreFlight Genesis iPad application, with plans to upgrade to iPreFlight Genesis PRO over the coming months. These applications are used across the entire Vista members’ fleet of more than 360 aircraft.

Vista has expanded its business rapidly, reporting double digit growth in the first half of 2022, accelerated new client memberships, and has expanded across all markets globally, particularly in the US. The group includes the leading brands VistaJet, XO and Apollo Jets; its operating partners’ network extends further to XOJET Aviation, GMJ Air Shuttle, Red Wing Aviation and Talon Air. The groups recently supported the growing demand for its services through the acquisition of Air Hamburg in Germany and Jet Edge in the US.

“APG is a leader in aircraft performance software for dispatchers and pilots. This, coupled with its excellent and responsive customer support, allowed us to make the very easy decision to continue our relationship,” says VistaJet director of operations Cliff Berrington. “We look forward to seeing how iPreFlight Genesis PRO can improve the optimisation of our fleet management over the coming years.”

For over 20 years, APG has supported aircraft businesses and pilots with mission-critical flight operations software. Using iPreFlight Genesis enables Vista’s pilots and dispatchers to determine maximum take off and landing weights and perform required weight and balance computations. Additionally, Vista will make use of APG’s isFlightPossible solution to get instant confirmation on the feasibility of any flight and to quickly determine the best aircraft for any mission with minimal input.

“This contract is a significant step in our commitment to support Vista as it expands globally with outstanding flight operations solutions that allows operators to be safe, efficient and compliant,” says APG head of sales EMEA Mark Stevens. “Additionally, we are thrilled to broaden our relationship with Vista with expansion into our newest iPreFlight Genesis PRO product line.”
