The Aimm developers are Airport Owners too. The Lockie family have owned and operated West Auckland Airport Parakai, a busy sky diving and recreational airport, since 2005. The airport business has a mix of commercial, tourism, and general aviation operations. As Airport directors, the Aimm leadership team are acutely aware of the unique responsibilities and challenges of running an airport. Coming from a software development background, it was a natural step to develop software to make it easier to run their own Airport operations, and then make this software available to other aerodromes.


Using their combined experience, they founded and developed Aimm, an airport management system offering airport movement monitoring, statistical analysis and compliance, leveraging the power of 'the Cloud' and the latest technologies for audio and ADS-B aircraft tracking.


Our team:




Carreen Lockie (with Harvey Lockie) founded Lockie Computing in the 1980s. Carreen with the role of Business & Marketing Manager and Harvey concentrating on programming and setting up new systems. 

From there, the business evolved, gradually adding extra programming and support staff, and in 1999, with a new business partner, they became HealthSoft Ltd. The sale of software to Boots the Chemist (UK), led to the purchase of West Auckland Airport, Parakai where Carreen is on the board of directors. The three Lockie sons joined as Directors and together helped grow West Auckland Airport Parakai to a thriving commercial and recreational airport.  The Lockies worked together to develop the Aimm Airport management software, Carreen again taking part in the management and marketing.
