Helpdesk: 01489 612792

The Assisted Flight Plan Exchange (AFPEx) is an internet based flight planning system. AFPEx is designed for the filing of Flight Plans and related messaging, via the Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN), directly from your desktop or laptop computer. Approved users who are registered and operating within the UK, will be given a unique Login, password, and an AFTN address.

Once an AFTN address has been assigned, Air movement and Admin messages can be sent to any other AFTN connected stations worldwide from the AFPEx interface. The system is built around a highly stable multi-server platform and has a Fax backup facility. Support is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
