Why should I use this program?

VOLANS is a web-based application designed to create, evaluate and display flight operations in 3D. This software tool evaluates the acoustic and environmental impacts from new Performance Based Procedures as well as new runways and airfield configurations, providing a display of noise impacts using various acoustic parameters including A-weighted noise levels and audibility detection. VOLANS can be used for all classes of aircraft operations ranging from commercial jets on a single runway to metroplex operations.

Who is using Volans?

Volans was created to fill the void between the charted new procedures and how those procedures are actually flown. Not many of us can look at an instrument chart and make heads or tails of it. Volans replaces the chart with a 3D depiction of the procedure that can now be easily explained to any number of stakeholders. Volans has been dispatched throughout the world, being used by government agencies and airports.
