Kalitta chooses CHAMP

All-cargo carrier Kalitta Air has become the North American launch customer for CHAMP Cargosystems’ next generation Weight & Balance application to manage load planning across US-based airline’s fleet of 14 Boeing 747 freighters.
Conrad Kalitta, chief executive at Kalitta Air, said: “We selected CHAMP’s Weight & Balance as we were confident that the application meets the requirements of our expanding business. We must ensure at all times that aircraft are loaded in line with weight specifications and restrictions to ensure maximum safety. 
“This modern, well proven IT solution will enable us to perform our load planning faster and more accurately thanks to its high degree of automation, leading to an overall reduction of time and costs.  Easily being able to optimise the centre of gravity will provide additional benefits as well as fuel savings.”
James Fernandez, VP cargo services at CHAMP Cargosystems, commented: “Kalitta Air is our launch North American client, further expanding the global functional capability for our Weight & Balance solution. We are working together closely to ensure that we realise the planned benefits and efficiencies. 
“This further success continues to position CHAMP’s Weight & Balance tool as the web-based application of choice for automated, compliant and cost-effective load planning independent of geography.”
The Weight & Balance is a new generation java based, modular built application enabling airlines to efficiently and safely plan complex aircraft loads. 
The application also helps the user keep the aircraft within permissible centre of gravity limits throughout the flight.  The functionality includes an auto-load option on multiple legs. 
Said CHAMP: “The software not only ensures compliance with all operational and safety requirements, but also enables comprehensive audit trails and reporting, providing further business intelligence into the fleet’s overall performance.”
