About Contrails Software and Consulting.

Our fonder, Mike Havener was an early Internet adopter and began creating web sites in 1995, before a lot of folks had even heard of the Internet. By the time Internet Service Providers were becoming widely available and everybody now had an email address, he saw the possibilities of eCommerce and the abiity for even small business to leverage the power of the Internet.

While Contrails Software and Consulting realizes and targets the fact that the Internet is a big piece of our modern lives, we also recognize that it doesn't lend itself to all senarios or Internet connectivity sinply isn't available. We can work with you to provide the solution that best fits your needs.

Mike, who is also a Certificated Flight Instructor, Glider, created our first product based on the desires of other sailplane pilots. They wanted to record a glider's 3D flight path based on GPS data that could be used for post-flight analysis. This information along with terrain and air space data and the glider's performace would also need to be available to the pilot while in flight. Developed to run on Windows® CE platforms, the application genereted an IGC data file that resembles the contrails left by high flying aircraft.

And the rest, as they say is history...
