Introduced last year, the JumpSeat app is currently free to users and a first of its kind to allow pilots to share and access important operational information that may not be addressed in a formal Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM), and will save crews the time needed to research multiple sources.
Jason Starke, Director of Safety at Baldwin Safety and Compliance, commented: “Now we can make it even easier for our clients to access local intelligence at their departure and destination airports from the Baldwin system, to help make more informed decisions regarding risk associated with their trip. It is simple to use, and as the user numbers go up, the more valuable it will become. I see it as a must-have resource for every trip.”
JumpSeat Co-Founders Ben Zavadil and Bradley Doebelin worked together to develop a first of its kind crowdsourced aviation app that now has several thousand users. The intuitive app allows users to search by airport using a map and offers a global events feed with favorites section on the menu to quickly check frequent locations in real-time. Reports are made quickly by choosing a category such as Air Traffic Control (ATC), Runways, Fuel, Ground Handling, Scams, Weather, and others.
