Automated Post-Flight Reporting
SD PostFlight®, Satcom Direct’s exclusive electronic flight log solution, is the first web-based system designed to auto capture and manage aircraft flight log data. With data capture powered by Satcom Direct’s premium datalink service, FlightDeck Freedom® (FDF), SD PostFlight automates the tracking of aircraft movements, calculating and recording flight time and cycle events for each leg of a journey. The automated and timely recordkeeping precision of critical flight data reduces pilot workload, minimizes human error and improves operational efficiency by synchronizing the flight department, crew and maintenance teams with autonomous flight log information.
Available exclusively via the SD Pro platform, SD PostFlight gives flight personnel access to automated data, keeping them in sync with their aircraft. They can access information via simply designed screens, to view high-level summary trip data or detailed flight leg information. Whether accessed from a desktop computer, or on the move via a mobile device, SD PostFlight serves as a smart system that provides user guidance, reduces human error and delivers automatically captured data.
SD PostFlight also integrates with CAMP, FlightDocs, and other leading providers, to push the automated data to those systems. To support warranty programs, customers can also choose to have data pushed to engine OEMs, with Rolls-Royce already signed up to receive operational performance records.
The accompanying SD Crew mobile app allows pilots to log Out, Off, On, and In (OOOI) times, fuel levels and fuel uplift, crew data, and leg notes to make logging and verification more timely and accurate. The OOOI times are pre-populated in the app via FDF immediately after the flight, so the logging/verification of the data is efficient and accurate. Future releases will capture flight expenses and accommodation costs, which can improve accounting accuracy for flight departments.
