Following extensive beta testing and successful integrations with selected members, the crew app is now available to all Schedaero users. Key features include the ability to view new missions; access full trip sheets; check passenger information; complete flight and duty logging; and see pull-up directions and amenities for FBOs.
Additional features such as expense reporting will be released in the coming months, giving crews and pilots access to the full spectrum of data they require from the air, the office or from home.
Johan Sjöberg, executive vice president, Schedaero, says: “Schedaero is currently used by more than 350 operators globally, a number we expect to increase following the launch of our new app. We’re continuously advancing our Schedaero platform and API capabilities to respond to the needs of larger operators. When those customers requested Schedaero be more accessible to crew members, to ensure a joined-up approach throughout their teams, we delivered. We hope the app encourages the business aviation industry to step back from all the paperwork and take the digital route.”
Christopher Powell, chief pilot at Saturn Aviation and an early user of the app, adds: “The app has greatly streamlined information sharing and retrieval. I can open the app from anywhere and know I’m seeing the most recent data from our schedulers. The flight logging component is my favorite, as it will eliminate a great deal of paperwork for our pilots and streamline our daily reporting. Allowing the app to make calculations and log data that previously required us to perform computations and data entry reduces the chance of erroneous entries and arithmetic errors. Overall, the user interface on the app is wonderful – the labels are intuitive and desired data is easy to locate.”
To keep pilots and crew members up to date, the app sends push notifications to their devices to alert them when a new mission has been assigned and notifies dispatch when a mission has been viewed.
