After a comprehensive market assessment, Ocean Software’s FlightPro® aviation operations and training management system was selected to manage the scheduling and training operations of CFTS. This implementation included integration of SCORM Computer Based Training (CBT) and two way integration with Microsoft Outlook Exchange calendar.
FlightPro® brought a dynamic scheduling capability to the dispatch team through the use of real-time graphical tools, configurable interfaces, and easy data entry. FlightPro® made rescheduling as intuitive as dragging and dropping information blocks to a new time on the schedule. FlightPro® is also used to comprehensively manage currencies and qualifications, guaranteeing that the crews assigned to each mission are qualified, and improving safety as a result. Ground training, both instructor led and self-paced, is managed and tracked from within FlightPro®, offering a single, configurable, and easy-to-use portal for students, staff, and supervisors.
FlightPro® was delivered on-schedule and under-budget delivery by Ocean’s experienced Project Team, with the result that Allied Wings operations in all areas improved significantly and quickly.
“The FlightPro® transition was implemented with zero interruption to flying operations. In fact we reduced our operations desks from 2 to 1 and the customer is happy. FlightPro® allowed us to meet our Performance KPIs with the customer.” Said Bill Ryan.
The implementation of FlightPro® made it possible to reduce the size of the dispatch and scheduling team by 30%, with the smaller team able to complete scheduling in 25% of the time previously required by the original team. This enabled Allied Wings to reallocate duties across the organization. Allied Wings saw a substantial improvement in overall operational output and achieved performance KPIs in their first year of implementation.
