Flightdocs and Satcom Direct Integrate Solutions to Enhance Connectivity Within Flight Departments
BONITA SPRINGS, Florida, Oct 21, 2019 – Flightdocs, the provider of flight department management software solutions, announces today a new integration with Satcom Direct (SD), a leading provider of global business aviation solutions. The integration will connect Flightdocs’ Enterprise Maintenance and Operations platform with intelligent data management system SD Pro® to support instant, two-way aircraft performance data transfer.
Flightdocs president Greg Heine says, “We’re excited to collaborate with SD on this powerful integration. Both of our companies have been delivering leading edge technology to the market for years now. It’s great to put our technology together to solve real business problems within flight departments to drive efficiencies, eliminate data errors and enhance operational safety.”
SD’s new PostFlight service via SD Pro supports the capture of aircraft flight log times automatically utilizing SD’s datalink service, FlightDeck Freedom®. These metrics are then sent to Flightdocs Enterprise to update the current maintenance status of the aircraft, thus eliminating the need for manual calculations of aircraft total time. Aircraft maintenance data – including aircraft status, upcoming scheduled maintenance, and non-routine maintenance (discrepancies, MELs, NEFs, CDLs) – can be automatically sent from Flightdocs Enterprise to SD Pro, streamlining key processes for crew, maintenance technicians, schedulers and dispatchers. Customers of Flightdocs and SD can now optimize the products to gather maximum aircraft performance information through the synchronized systems.
“Delivering accurate, near real-time flight log information supports flight department efficiencies while saving time and improving maintenance budget management. As the amount of data generated by aircraft grows, we will continue to develop open architecture solutions that enable users to tailor-make flight operation management systems that suit their individual needs. This new relationship with Flightdocs perfectly demonstrates how integrating complementary systems can bring tangible benefits to the sector,” said SD President, Business Aviation, Chris Moore.
