Mobile Device Support
PDC FlightBag mobile device support allows pilots to use smartphones and tablets such as Android, iOS(iPhone, iPad) or other devices. Typically, pilots
use PDC FlightBag on a mobile device or pc and synchronize the data with PDC FlightOps system.
Via a mobile device, the pilots can view the flights that they are assigned to, as well as update them with the operational information. In the case of a flight
diversion and return to ramp, it is possible to create a new leg in PDC FlightBag and input the data for the movements, load messages, fuel figures, notes etc.
Moreover, PDC FlightBag is also integrated with the PDC FlightCrew system to allow the pilots to enter the information with regards to approach type, pilots flying
with regard to take-off and landing. In addition, pilots can also view the crew duty info including check-in/out times, position, night duty, split duty and update
in flight rest and control times.
Debriefing entry is also included in PDC FlightBag. The pilots can select the debriefing type info such as Flight Delays, Flight Planning, Maintenance,
Flight Safety and Ground Handling and enter the debriefing info.
Enhanced Situational Awareness
With fast and accurate information, Operations are able to grasp the actual situation and promptly address necessary changes. It becomes evident when real
faults occur and when to take action - as opposed to missing data that indicates the problems. It is vital that the issues are addressed rapidly. PDC FlightBag
helps to improve situational awareness and reduces hours of flight operational tasks.
It is easy and flexible for the pilot to deliver his flight data such as actual take-off/landing times, delay info, fuel, load, weight, notes etc. Since
data can be delivered continuously when the pilot is online, Ops will typically receive it much faster than if they have to wait for the paper. Subsequently,
effective communication between pilots and the airline’s operation department will enhance operations.
For business jets this may mean that the final invoice may be generated much earlier than before.
