US intelligent aircraft software developer Coflyt has launched its new app on the Apple and Google Play stores. Coflyt will combine required inspections, maintenance tracking, scheduling and billing into a simple app, and pilots will be able to fully automate their aircraft management for better communication across their ownership team, with partners, A&Ps, insurance brokers or flying clubs.
The software offers maintenance insights that keep the aircraft ownership team informed about maintenance items or squawks; required VFR/IFR inspection statuses; shared aircraft management to log flights by multiple pilots and analyse usage; and the ability to share aircraft information with a pilot's A&P or others involved in the aircraft's management.
“We were aware that the majority of aircraft owners were still keeping their aircraft information and records in an inefficient manner by using paper documents, excel spreadsheets or other disconnected tools, with little to no communication between the parties involved,” says Coflyt founder Tal Clark. “There were often maintenance issues that were missed and flight logs that were not recorded, so we formed the Coflyt team to provide improved tools for the aviation community. We worked to create an in-depth app that helps owners, pilots and mechanics care for their aircraft intelligently, with an even greater value for those who are sharing ownership responsibility.”
Coflyt is aimed at any pilot, flight school, flight club or mechanic involved with the ownership and care of general aviation aircraft. They can use the app to create an accurate log of all flights, pilots and distances travelled, enabling A&Ps or aircraft owners to manage maintenance and schedule upcoming care. The full aircraft ownership team is able to use Coflyt to ensure they are consistently meeting all inspection requirements and that the aircraft is ready for flight, without having to pull out log books or worry about contacting others who may have used the aircraft.
