What’s new

We polished up the user settings module. Both regular and admin users will notice the visual difference – a little fresher, and a little simpler. Hopefully. In addition to the visual changes,  admin users can now select safety management messaging options from the user settings. Doing so will adjust which departments you receive notifications for.
You might notice that the Maps and Charts module is looking a little different. Several new features have been added as well as some UI changes. Of interest is the ‘nearby features’ option, allowing you to see the closest:
– Points of interest
– Obstacles
– Airdromes
– Nav Aids
– Waypoints

To access the nearby features tool click on the new search icon underneath the direct-to-tool. The list is populated based on either your GPS location or where the map is centred.

Lastly, we’ve also added a new measurement tool that is selectable from the left hand menu and made the airdrome reference information more easily accessible while using the direct-to-tool.
The scheduler was updated with a much requested feature to assign aircraft and personnel to different bases. When creating a booking you can now select staff and aircraft from a particular base.

Pilots flying more than one aircraft in a day found themselves in the unenviable situation of trying to fit a square peg in a round hole when entering in their flight duty times.  We’ve tinkered with the flight duty time module and it’s now more flexible. Pilots can enter flight duty times for multiple aircraft in a given day.
Where are all our Indonesian friends at! We now have offline charts for Indonesia.
Ever wonder about how nice it would be to see duty times from the scheduler? Good news –  now you can!
Wait, one more scheduler thing. You can now also see flight reports from the scheduler.
Persistence pays off and flight followers are a persistent bunch. You can now edit and action itineraries as well as bookings, assuming you have the right permissions.
