Business Aviation

The term ‘business aviation’ refers to any aviation activities conducted for business purposes, or any flights that are not operated by commercial, scheduled airlines or by the military.

Companies who are members of the business aviation community operate a number of different types of aircraft that could fall into the business aviation category, such as:

  • Turboprop aircraft
  • Single-pilot aircraft
  • Corporate jet aircraft
  • Turbine-propelled aircraft

Business aviation communications and compliance

Although rules, regulations and guidelines differ for business operators, regulatory bodies are updating mandatory requirements every year, and the world of business aviation is beginning to face the challenges of the commercial and government sectors in terms of compliance.

The provision of airline passenger data in the form of Advance Passenger Information, acceptably abbreviated to API, is one of the latest requirements to become mandatory within the business aviation industry. As more and more countries begin to participate, and business jets fly greater distances, the provision of Advance Passenger Information Exchange will also increase.

How does aviation security software help?

Not only is the provision of API mandatory for business aviation operators, the collection, storage and transmission of secure flight passenger data is also heavily regulated.

In order to fully comply with API regulations, and to enhance aviation security, operators must ensure Advance Passenger Information is transmitted using an acceptable system. The Advance Passenger Information System, or APIS is a universally-accepted, standard method for the collection and handling of airline security data.

Failure to adhere to the requirement of the provision of API can lead to heavy fines across the world, (up to $5,000 in the U.S.) and expensive, additional ground delays as affected passengers or crew are removed from the aircraft.
