Flightdocs aims to transform flight department efficiency
Limited operational visibility, broken communication and disjointed data flows are some of the challenges encountered in flight departments the world over. A new end-to-end product addresses this.
President Greg Heine talks about bringing the end-to-end Flightdocs Operations platform to the market.

US maintenance and inventory management software solutions company Flightdocs is to launch a new Flightdocs Operations platform that will be fully cloud based with web and native mobile applications. Its core functions will include flight scheduling, service planning, crew and passenger management, customisable flight logs and expense reporting. Each feature was built to enhance the workflows of pilots, crew, schedulers and dispatchers while optimising cross-departmental communications and visibility. Operations is fully integrated under the Flightdocs Enterprise suite of solutions thus creating a seamless flow of maintenance and operational data throughout the flight department.

The platform will feature a native app for both iPhone and iPad and is available both while connected and offline. It delivers real-time push notifications for crew briefings, electronic flight logs compliant with FAA AC 120-78A and full integration with the maintenance module. Integration will give crew members instant access to the current aircraft maintenance status details and they will be able to report discrepancies and MELs with images and video and update aircraft hours and cycles instantly.

In addition, the product will include an embedded messaging module called Fd Connect, which provides real-time, secure, encrypted communication between crew, schedulers, dispatchers and maintenance personnel.

“The inception of our products has been the direct result of listening to our customers,” explains Flightdocs president Greg Heine. “We're using technology to solve real business problems. Limited operational visibility, broken communication and disjointed data flows are some of the standard obstacles found in flight departments of all shapes and sizes. Flightdocs Operations eliminates these gaps by providing one platform that literally does it all, from end to end.”
