Garmin has announced several new features within the FltPlan.com safety management system (SMS) and FltLogic flight scheduling program. FltPlan.com has partnered with the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) to enable FltSafety.com SMS subscribers who are ACSF members to voluntarily file Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) reports with the FAA. This integration facilitates a proactive approach to self-reporting, while also identifying areas within a flight department where operational improvement is needed.
Additionally, several new enhancements have been made to the FltLogic flight scheduling program that streamlines the user interface and allow users to see more information at-a-glance.
Flight departments can easily identify, track and mitigate risks using FltPlan.com’s SMS and ACSF ASAP participants can now utilize it to submit ASAP reports to the FAA. The FAA’s Aviation Safety Action Program focuses on the voluntary reporting of issues related to noncompliance and/or safety. The voluntary nature of this initiative encourages compliance with FAA regulations, while also fostering safe operating practices and promoting the development of proper internal evaluation programs that have a long-term impact on the safety of an operator and their organization.
Pilots can take advantage of the latest version of the SMS via the FltSafety.com website. Participation in the ASAP program through FltSafety.com requires advanced registration with the Air Charter Safety Foundation.
Several new features have also been added to FltLogic, a comprehensive flight scheduling program that can be utilized within flight departments starting at the initial trip request phase through post flight analysis.
These new features include:
- A new single-page edit design allows users to more easily modify trip details;
- Users can create a private event within FltLogic, which hides all trip information except the tail number of the aircraft;
- Pilots and schedulers can more easily track canceled and completed trips within FltLogic, which now incorporates a canceled and completed trip box;
- An authorized pilot view gives pilots certain permissions within FltLogic to view scheduled events for any aircraft the pilot is authorized to fly; and
- Calendar colors can now be customized to indicate specific events such as maintenance or training, so it’s easier to identify aircraft reservation information.
These new features within FltPlan.com and FltLogic are available immediately.
