The AvR2000 Fuel Management system can be found in over 350 airports worldwide. The main purpose of this software is to aid the management of into plane fuelling operations. It is a mature and feature rich system that has been enhanced over years to encompass the requirements and desires of an into plane operator. The system is designed to improve data quality and can be interfaced to many external system.
The AvR2000 office software is written in MS Visual Basic, a widely recognised development language for Windows applications. The application depends upon the Windows XP or 2000 operating systems. MS SQL Server is required to provide an efficient and robust method of storing and retrieving data. Modules can be run simultaneously.

Site Configuration consists of two modules and holds all the site specific data and enables the user to input and modify site-specific data, which is used throughout the system.
Flights Database is used to store all flight contract information. Contracts may be input and amended manually or imported electronically using Flights Importer.
Flights Importer allows the user to import data from external flight data files, directly into the AvR2000 system. Data supplied in a clearly defined text based format can be imported once the file format has been set-up within File Importer. A number of fields are classified as mandatory to facilitate the import. The substitution feature enables selected data types to be converted into a compatible format during the importation process.
All transactions can be entered and updated in transaction management. Transactions entered manually fall into three main areas:
Metered quantities - meter readings and dips taken from each vessel and the temperature and density calculations.
Inventory movements - movements of fuel into and around the site covering receipts, own use, recirculations, physical and company transfers.
Fueling aircraft - features aircraft details, flight, the fuel supplier, product and payment method, volume of fuel loaded, vehicle and operator, start and end meter readings, temperature and density calculations, the relevant fuelling times.
This module provides automatic meter reconciliation functionality by performing the following:
- Compare these to the last reconciled opening reading.
- Checks the intervening meter readings, highlighting any discrepancies.
- Allows the latest closing meter reading to be set as the reconciled reading for inventory reporting.
The Report Management module provides a range of pre-defined standard reports.
Reports can be printed or saved in Html format for import into Microsoft applications such as Excel and Word.
Filtering controls enable reports to be defined by date, supplier, and vessel where applicable. Custom defined reports can also be written and installed for inclusion within the module.
Data Extracts and Transmission Management
The Data Extracts definition module enables different data file extracts and file formats to be produced from the main system database. Over 100 fields are selectable per fuel
Transmission Management enables the extracted data to be sent from the database via modem or computer network.
The Pricing module holds tables with the pricing rules for each product, supplier and customer. Prices and fees can be defined by the following parameters:
- Aircraft Type
The module records items that affect the stock position of each product. These include receipts, deliveries, pump-throughs, adjustments and transfers generating an accurate
up-to-date display of airport stocks by product.
The module reconciles book stocks against actual levels and controls the allocation of gains and losses between suppliers and partners.
Schedule and Dispatch
The Schedule and Dispatch module assists the dispatch process by prioritising flights by refuel start time and alerting operators of the requirement to make a dispatch decision.
For each flight, the dispatcher is required to select an operator or vehicle (optional).
Schedule Gantt is a graphical interface for the control and monitoring of busy intoplane operations.
- Each flight bar can incorporate up to 4 configurable data labels such as aircraft tank information, registration and ETA.
- Flights can be assigned to shifts in advance of operation.
- Flight bar pop ups enable up to 20 configurable data fields to appear over each flight bar.
- Flights, vehicles and operators can be assigned to individual shifts using drag and drop features.
FIDS Interface Module
FIDS supports access to the data stream provided by airport and airline information systems relating to ground movement and flight and arrival status.
This data is used to automatically update flights recorded in the operations table. This enables any changes in flight status to be displayed in Schedule and Dispatch and Schedule Gantt modules. This usually requires bespoke integration due to the non standard nature of FIDS feeds.
