Company Summary

Airlines can save $50m/yr by reducing accidents between aircraft and ground vehicles (belt loaders, etc) with Airventions’ sensor technology! It mitigates the human factor of maneuvering a 10 ton vehicle within inches of a $80Mn aircraft. Proximity sensors alert drivers and increase situational awareness while usage data reporting addresses the core issues, accountability and incentives. We directly improve airline's bottom line.
