A wealth of features ensures that the right Crew with the right qualifications are in the right place at the right time. PDC FlightCrew assures that the schedules do not conflict with various kinds of constraints, and that they comply with laws and regulations.

PDC FlightCrew handles different combinations of rule sets such as EASA and other FTL’s with different variations and keeps track of all factors related to Crew. Cosmic Radiation monitoring can be integrated with systems providing real-time data and per diem and payroll applicable data are handled as well and can be exported to third party payroll systems.
Interactive pairing construction includes all flying and non-flying activities, legality checks, crew complement, pairing series days and date range, pairing qualifications and e.g. hotel requirements and booking information to show any crewmembers not staying at the default hotel. It is possible to create series throughout the entire season.
Automatic Rostering and Control
Automatic rostering is all about balancing block hours, duty hours, preferred destinations, standby etc., using pre-assigned credit (rostering) values to non-flying activities and vacation etc. as a balancing value.
This feature handles display of ‘Requests’ on roster display and a rostering ‘Restart’ capability, if required.
There is a ‘Pin Mode’ for locking selected pairings and/or activities to rosters (training etc.) and a manual rostering, both methods of rostering use a ‘fair and equal’ assignment.
Automatic Rostering and Control handles user definable activity categories and activity types (ground duties, days off, vacation and deadheading, etc.) and define colors for all activities are user definable at the time of creation and amendable at any time later.
