PlanePass Automated Landing Fee Collection System

PlanePass is a turn-key, full-service aircraft fee billing and collection system. It automatically delivers landing fee and customs revenue without any effort required by your airport or Fixed Based Operators (FBO) staff. PlanePass leverages the hardware and software in the L3Harris Symphony Vantage Automated Aircraft Identification System. PlanePass also delivers detailed aircraft and operator data in digital form for a complete inventory of the airport’s activity. Collected data can be used for environmental studies, planning and operations, grant applications, and improving Noise Operations and Management System (NOMS) data.
