Unlock your fleet’s potential

Stellar is building the most innovative operations management solution for business aviation

Ready Today — Built for Tomorrow

Stellar is reimagining and revolutionizing the business aviation industry with a suite of integrated, cloud-based applications for quoting, planning, scheduling, sourcing, and analytics with much more to come. Stellar and Rockwell Collins have jointly invested millions of dollars to completely redesign ARINCDirect Flight Operations System (FOS®) with a modern architecture, intuitive and easy-to-use interface, and new and improved features. New capabilities of NextGen FOS will be released in modules, with NextGen Quoting and Planning available now.

All Stellar products are web-based applications hosted in the Stellar Cloud, the company’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for business aviation solutions.

Quoting

Detailed, Accurate, Quotes in Minutes

NextGen FOS Quoting allows you to quickly generate beautiful, fully responsive, operator branded quotes offering multiple aircrafts and itinerary options. Stellar's automated quoting technology will quote your entire fleet in seconds with integrated feasibility checks to ensure only trips that can actually be flown are quoted.

Available now to all US-based Stellar Cloud customers, Quoting is designed to supersede your current FOS quoting module with a web-enabled, mobile-friendly interface that is fast, accurate and easy to use. FOS Sync ensures your quotes are automatically and instantly reflected in your current FOS application.

Key Benefits

Web-based user interface works on all common browsers and has a fresh, easy-to-use look and feel.

Flexible quote and proposal generation allows sales representatives to quickly create quotes across their entire fleet with multiple itineraries.

Attractive, operator branded proposals can be viewed on smartphones, tablets, or desktops.

Mobile readiness empowers on the go sales representatives to build quotes anywhere and at any time.

FOS Sync keeps data in NextGen Quoting and FOS synchronized, so that you don't have to enter the same data in both systems.

Pricing Engine

The Stellar Pricing Engine make it easy to determine the right price and margin for any itinerary. The pricing engine is a modern rules based system, providing far more power and flexibility than FOS capabilities. Pricing can be configured to accommodate multiple pricing schemes and to implement unique rules for your business based on variables such as airports, aircraft type, individual aircraft time, passengers, customer demand, and special events. Pricing rules can expand overtime and grow with your business.

Planning

A Window into the Flight Department

NextGen FOS Planning provides secure access to trip information to approved users outside the flight department, saving valuable time and effort for both the flight department and the travel planner. Available by end of 2018, Planning will allow owners, executives, their assistants and other travel planners to view aircraft availability, submit a trip request, and monitor the ongoing status of the trip.

Key Benefits

Enable travel planners to see their trips on any web-enabled desktop or mobile device.

Share the schedule board and aircraft availability.

Empower travel planners to download trip sheets and monitor trip progress without interrupting the flight department.

Enter trip, aircraft, passenger and crew information once in FOS and it’s available immediately for Planning users.

Planning User Permissions

Each user in NextGen FOS Planning is assigned a distinct set of permissions, allowing controlled dissemination of aircraft and trip information to just travel planners who need it. Travel planners can be restricted from viewing availability or requesting trips on certain aircraft. Detailed data—including passenger, crew, and service information straight from FOS—is provided for trips within a planner's purview; otherwise only general availability information is accessible.

Scheduling

The Heart of Your Flight Department

NextGen FOS Scheduling is a secure, cloud-based, aircraft scheduling application that gives you a continuous overview of your entire operation at any time. Available in mid-2019, Scheduling allows you to customize views of trip and schedule data, automate frequently used workflows, define complex operational rules, and effectively manage client and personnel data. Securely access aircraft and crew schedules and manage trips from anywhere using a mobile device.

Key Benefits

Define and manage complex operational rules, workflows, and alerts using the advanced operational rules management system.

Configure trip services and manage their status to confirm and verify completion.

View customizable, intuitive dashboards to ensure flights have passed all feasibility checks, all services have been confirmed, and the flight is ready for release.

Dynamic Schedule Board

Your trips are displayed in an interactive schedule board with drill-down capabilities. Live legs, dynamically generated repositioning legs, maintenance events, owner trips and other non-charter events can be created directly from the schedule board to update schedule availability

Analytics

Stellar’s advanced, enterprise class reporting and analytics helps both charter operators and corporate flight departments understand, manage and improve their operations. Busy owners, charter sales managers and others needing information on the go can access reports on their mobile devices.
