Directly inspired by local aviation clients and the need for an industry-approved online safety and operational application, Avinet was established in 2005 to develop Air Maestro. The company has since expanded into other transport sectors, with operational and safety web-based applications Rail Maestro and Road Maestro. Air Maestro is Avinet’s leading product and is supported by alliance partners across the globe.
