Having developed flight planning systems for more than 30 years, the FLIGHTKEYS team has the background to ensure that 5D meets the basic requirements of trajectory management and flight planning systems. We think that features like fuel tankering, ETOPS, Terrain avoidance scenarios, precise overflight fee computation, tailored NOTAM and weather briefings, consideration of weather hazards, etc. are basic features and do not have to be explained in detail. 5D will be built on top of these standard features and drive them even further. A set of advanced features of 5D is listed below:

-5D Multiverse (probabilistic dimension)
-High-speed, one-pass trajectory optimizer
-Full Flight Dynamics
-Alert-resolution driven
-Network and traffic awareness
-Web-based, Cloud and Mobile
-Tight ATM system integration
-Dynamic Airport suitability checking
-In-flight trajectory management
-Analytics module
-Flight lifecycle traceability
-Advanced APM integration
-Policy editor
-FIXM 4.0 support
