DAISY | Airport Information System
Flight movement information is used by many different departments and agencies. Maintaining a central and easy to operate flight information system, and FIDS, for keeping track of flight movements is essential for any airfield, airport or flying club.
Database and Airport Information System, or better known by the acronym of DAISY, provides an independent, flexible and easy to use stand-alone Airport Flight Information System and is ideal for either single user operation such as at flying clubs and smaller airfields, through to full network operation with multiple users at airports.
DAISY is a collaboration of scaleable software modules that integrate the various departments, and operational data requirements, of any aviation business including:
- Air Traffic Control
- Ground Handling
- Customer Services
- Fuel Farm
- Motor Transport
- Public Flight Information
Other departments within the airfield could also have easy access to real-time flight information such as Refuellers, Ground Handling, MT, Hangers, RFFS, Air Traffic Engineers, Transport, Facilities, Health & Safety Officer and Environmental Noise monitoring. In addition, external agencies and remote staff may also access the flight movements through a secure DAISY Web Extranet.
Flight Movements are easily input into the system by Air Traffic or Operations in the form of Prior Permission Request (PPR), which can be either individual movements or scheduled. Flexibility is an important component in design and DAISY provides this key link to bringing together essential information within the various airport departments and services, quickly and in real-time.

DAISY can be configured and scaled to run as a basic single user system for small airfields, through to full airport network functionality to both airside and landside operation. It can also be linked to ATC (Air Traffic Control) Flight Systems such as the Stonefield Systems AIMS (AFTN and OFD), and other third party software including Cirrus Research Noise Event Monitoring, Vaisala Monitoring Systems and Sage Accounts for Billing and Finance.
An intranet and extranet is also included for onsite staff information such as PPR Log and Cargo Log through to Passenger FIDS and remote agencies including Special Branch, Customs and Emergency Services.
