Air Maestro


A scalable, customisable solution for your operation

Air Maestro is a cloud-based aviation software solution encompassing operations, safety and quality management. The design philosophy emphasises the integration of organisation-wide management functions. This allows an operator to monitor company functions from the individual to the group level.

Air Maestro has been growing since 2004 in response to the requirements of operators in a wide variety of industry sectors. We are constantly gathering feedback and suggestions for future development from our growing user base.

Cairn Aviation is proud to be an Alliance Partner of Avinet, the developers of Air Maestro.

For almost a decade, Air Maestro has been an integral part of Heli Malongo’s aviation operation in Angola. We have used it extensively for flight and duty management as well as for our safety (SMS) system, both on the fixed-wing and rotary wing sides.

We are proud to have been one of the first OGP operators in the region to have moved into an almost entirely paperless environment and brought all departments into the online space. The support from the Avinet team has been outstanding from day one and the system has continued to evolve and grow with our needs.

The flexibility and adaptability of the system has been one of it’s strongest features in a sector which has been constantly challenged in recent times to remain both cost-effective and safety-oriented.

We chose Air Maestro to replace our previous Aviation Management System, a system we tried to develop on our own which came with great difficulty and cost.

Air Maestro gave us the most complete solution for our Flight Operations Department. Air Maestro has many different modules to suit your needs. We have found great value in the Timesheets Module, this manages Flight and Duty on a real-time basis which has helped improve our Safety Management Systems for e.g. when duty times are exceeded, our management team is notified immediately making problem-solving a lot more efficient.

Another module on Air Maestro that has proved to be of great benefit is the Scheduling Module. Our Base-Coordinators make use of this module to schedule crew on base. When scheduling crew it notifies Base-Co of any recency or flight and duty exceedances which again has improved our overall Safety Culture.

The help desk is always patient and willing to help with our queries. Thank you Air Maestro Team.

How do you calculate a user licence?

We have a fair use policy which means that we determine your user licence according to the actual usage of your site.

To establish a starting user licence our consultants will work with you estimate a fair user licence based on the size of your organisation and the expected usage of your Air Maestro domain.
At the conclusion of your first licence term, we will look at snapshots of unique logins over the licence term and average that to determine the actual average usage of your site. Once this number is established we will work with you to revise your user licence up or down according to the past unique logins and expected future logins.
We never limit the number of concurrent users that you may have active nor are you ever limited by the number of user profiles that you may have active on your Air Maestro domain.
