PDC FlightOps is the Operations Control Module. The integrated Gantt display and overall functionality have been designed with a focus on efficient:
- Traffic monitoring
- Message distribution
- Disruption handling
In case of operational disruptions, a comprehensive Decision Support Module analyses all the possible repercussions of that irregularity and advises the Operator with a list of possible solutions. These recommendations are tailored to suit your Company Policy and can be rated in order of cost index, individual aircraft delay, fleet disruption, etc. The recommendations fully consider numerous criteria which include, but are not limited to, aircraft capacity, operational or performance limitations, connecting passengers, Aircrew rotation, etc.
This enables the correct decision to be made quickly and efficiently, which minimises passenger inconvenience or limits the overall cost of the disruption.
I value PDC’s proximity to their customers which is also demonstrated during the Annual User Group Meetings. Every year we are invited to meet with PDC and Colleagues from other Airlines. Being updated on the latest program news and PDC’s plans for the future has great value – but it is also beneficial to meet and discuss with Colleagues.

Revenue Cost Module – PDC FlightOps can store cost information for calculation of flight sectors and ad hoc changes. These cost factors may be stored against both fixed and variable items and may be assigned to aircraft type, airports and passenger numbers.
Problem Solver – In the case of delays or operational disruption, it is possible to get back on track by using the Problem Solver. This can be done within the affected aircraft, aircraft type, sub-type or entire fleet. It is possible to parameterise it so existing maintenance, sectors and connections will be resolved. It is also possible to change the default turnaround time, with x minutes, if feasible. The Problem Solver finds a solution automatically. The Solver will come up with more suggestions and an economic overview of possible scenarios.
Flight Alert Monitor – On a secondary screen all top priorities to be handled and monitored.
Report Generator – Accurate reporting is a key element for any Airline’s Management. PDC FlightOps includes a Report Generator for generating Statistics and Punctuality Reports (Flight Statistics, Delay Statistics, Load Statistics and Productivity Statistics).
Custom Report – It is possible to create new reports/layout with data from the database.
Rule Manager – Keep track on MEL’s and limitations on performance.
Slot Management – The FlightOps Slot Manager keeps track of the 80/20 rule. Automatically sends cancellation of Slots, avoiding penalties.
Weather Module – Receives weather data from NOAA with METAR and TAF in order to be proactive in managing the Day of Ops.
