Civil Aviation Authority launches Flight Information and Revenue Management System for maintaining record and billing of flights using Pakistani airspace

Karachi, December 24, 2014 (PPI-OT): The Information Technology Branch of Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has developed and launched its software ‘Flight Information and Revenue Management System (FIRMS)’ for maintaining the record and billing of all flights using Pakistani airspace.

The launching ceremony of the said software was held at CAA Headquarters Karachi. Director General CAA, Air Marshal (retd) Muhammad Yousaf was the Chief Guest of the ceremony. He praised the efforts of CAA’s IT Branch for developing and launching the software. All Directors and General Managers of CAA were also present on this occasion.

With the launching of FIRMS software, the billing of all flights using Pakistani airspace has been converted to a fully automated system, which has also been linked with the Air Transport and Management System.

CAA’s IT Branch has also designed its second software, ‘Airworthiness Management System (AMS)’. Implementation of ‘AMS’ will make the Airworthiness Certificate, Inspection and Monitoring procedures online, helping engineers make online entries while reporting from any airport.

At the launching ceremony, DG CAA said that in the field of IT and Communications, Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority is graded as one of the best in the current civil aviation industry, working on the same guidelines outlined by the ‘International Civil Aviation Organization’ (ICAO).

DG CAA said that the development of aviation automated systems like ‘FIRMS’ and ‘AMS’ by CAA’s own IT Branch ‘independently’ proves our team’s capabilities and the fact that CAA employees are completely motivated with a strong ambition to move forward. “With the right motivation and direction for utilizing our own resources, we can compete with any other country in the aviation sector”, he added.
