What is AIMS?
AIMS (Aviation Information Management System) is a computerized record keeping system used by the Aerospace program. The unique information management requirements of the UND pilot training program necessitated the development of this specialized software.
This software was developed by UND Aerospace Computer Services staff in coordination with other departments. It's development is ongoing and changes are made as necessary. AIMS provides a mechanism for students, instructors, and staff to access and share information relating to the pilot training program.
Some examples of things which the AIMS software helps manage are:
- Student Flight Records and Schedules
- Instructor Certifications and Schedules
- Aircraft Maintenance Histories and Schedules
AIMS complies with FAA regulations and directives.
If you wish to install AIMS on your PC or Mac computer, click the "Install AIMS" link below.
When installing AIMS, you will be prompted to enter an installation password. You may obtain this password from your advisor or the Aerospace helpdesk (701.777.4357).
If you are currently registered in a UND Aviation class and do not already have an AIMS Username/Password, you may get an AIMS account from the following link. Otherwise, call the Aerospace helpdesk at 701.777.4357 to get your AIMS account.
A web browser based version of AIMS is also available with a limited set of AIMS tools. This is accessible from a Phone or Tablet.
Launch Error - Checking for Updates
When you launch AIMS, it connects to the AIMS server to check for updates. Usually this doesn't interfere with the use of AIMS, but it's best if you can get the updates. If you get this error, it indicates that your computer is having trouble connecting to our servers.
Try turning off the computer, wait 15 seconds, and turn it back on. This often solves many problems.One of the common causes for this symptom is a personal firewall. Try disabling it and see if AIMS works properly.If you're not using a firewall, then it's possible that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has placed some type of restriction on their network that prevents AIMS from communicating with the necessary servers. This isn't very common, but it has happened.Another possibility is that your ISP's servers don't know how to find the AIMS server. If what we've suggested so far doesn't work, we suggest you contact your ISP and ask them to check things on their end.
