Sequence Design software

Two software packages are currently available that enable computer users to construct and print sequences that conform to the regulations which control the categories and programmes operated by CIVA.

Aresti System aerobatic drawing software


OpenAero sequence design software

Aresti System software was developed in the early 1990's by Alan Cassidy. It works in conjunction with the graphic and logic capabilities of Microsoft's Visio drawing software package, which must also be present in the users computer.   OpenAero is aerobatic sequence design software authored by Ringo Massa that runs inside your web browser. It will work in Windows, Mac, Linux and almost any computer operating system that supports web browsing.
Aresti System software can be purchased online from Alan's Freestyle Aviation website. Early versions of Microsoft Visio (from 2002 onwards is required) can often be found on Ebay and other similar auction sites.   OpenAero is free software, made available under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation. OpenAero is loosely based on OLAN sequence coding.
