Kris Hanus founded Vmo Solutions after becoming increasingly frustrated by the operational inefficiencies he witnessed within the aviation industry. As a commercial pilot with a strong business acumen, Hanus saw an opportunity to optimize operations through the use of technology. After investigating the current solutions available on the market, he noticed a disconnect between what was available and what a regional airline needed. Many of the existing products offered bells and whistles a regional airline would never use, but still charged for them – making software solutions prohibitive to smaller companies.
It was at this time that Hanus combined his aviation industry experience and knowledge with his technology background to start Vmo Solutions - a software development company specializing in IT solutions for the aviation industry. Today, Vmo creates multi-platform applications for common aviation operations and is proud to offer OC, the industry’s first web-based airline operations management software tailored to regional airlines. OC focuses on optimizing the productivity and efficiency of an airline’s operations, in addition to managing their daily flight operations.
What does Vmo stand for? Vmo is an acronym widely used in aviation to designate the maximum certified operating speed for an aircraft. Literally, it stands for Velocity, Maximum Operating.
