Aviation software solutions provider Flightdocs has announced its new, 100-per-cent cloud-based Flightdocs Operations, which utilises the latest in web and mobile technology to deliver a platform that can manage every aspect of a helicopter flight operation. 

Fully compliant with FAA AC 120-78A and international equivalents, Flightdocs has seen over 200-per-cent growth in the rotor segment of the market, following its release of HMX in 2017, which gives operators technology that allows them to go completely paperless, drastically improving performance, accuracy and timeliness of information. 

The Flightdocs Operations platform is focused on the key functions of flight scheduling, crew and passenger management, trip planning and expenses, amongst other things. The platform also features an encrypted messaging feature called ‘FD Connect’, which allows crew, maintenance and scheduling staff to communicate in real time via web or mobile device – an advancement that is expected to radically decrease the number of emails, text messages and phone calls that typically surround a trip.

Flightdocs Operation offers a web-based version; it also delivers native mobile applications for iPad and iPhone into the hands of the crew, which also function offline. Kent Pickard, Vice-President of Product Development, emphasises that mobile was an important aspect for the team, and adds: “We’ve created a truly unique mobile experience for pilots. Instant crew briefings, up-to-date maintenance information, fully customisable flight logs and real-time communication with home base.”

Flightdocs President Greg Heine explained: “There was a serious need in the market for a modern flight operations platform that was fully integrated with maintenance and supply chain. We’re extremely excited about the launch of Flightdocs Operations because it fills that void, and provides one platform to literally do it all, from end to end.”
