Satcom Direct announces SD Flight Logs, the first automated flight logs solution
AeroBD | The AERO news Company…NBAA Las Vegas, NV , Nov. 27, 2015 : SD FlightLogs provides aircraft operators with an electronic flight log solution that automates the tracking of aircraft movement events, keeping every member of the flight team in sync with the aircraft. Demos of the new technology are available at Satcom Direct’s exhibit C10134.
SD FlightLogs is the first web-based system designed to intuitively manage aircraft flight log data reducing manual user input. It gives the aircraft operator a smart system that includes user guidance, virtually eliminates human error, and provides access to flight data in real-time. SD FlightLogs provides pilots, maintenance and flight operations personnel with the ability to stay in sync with their aircraft anywhere in the world.
“It doesn’t make sense when you have a multi-million dollar aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art technology and you’re still using paper flight logs,” said Jim Jensen founder and CEO of Satcom Direct (SD). “SD FlightLogs is an electronic solution to the manual process of recording OFF/ON times. It auto-captures flight data so that you’ve not only eliminated the paper, you’ve created a database of movement and maintenance information that can be tracked over the life of the aircraft.”
SD FlightLogs is powered by SD’s FlightDeck Freedom® (FDF). SD FlightLogs auto captures data, calculating and recording flight time and cycle events while creating an electronic record documenting all flight information leg by leg. It creates an efficient, common platform for all operational users from pilot to maintenance and scheduler. Team members access information from three primary screens: fleet overview, trip list and trip details, allowing them to view high-level summary data or detailed flight events for each leg of a trip. SD FlightLogs issmart device compatible and is the latest “first” in business aviation for Satcom Direct.
