TracPlus Global has announced the launch of its latest feature, Mission Reports — offering pilots an easy and automated approach to multi-flight mission reporting.
TracPlus has launched a revolutionary feature that automatically creates and emails Mission Reports at the conclusion of each mission. This feature streamlines business by improving record keeping, ensuring contractual compliance and reducing errors.
Mission Reports are detailed PDF reports that include a map of the route flown, altitude and terrain elevation graphs, speed and heading graphs, as well as total distance flown, engine run and airborne times.
Unlike other systems, TracPlus Mission Reports are multi-leg, allowing multiple flights to be treated as part of a single mission.
An air rescue pilot conducting an inter-hospital patient transfer mission, for example, can define a mission that includes departing their base, flying to the departing hospital, the flight to the destination hospital, and the final return to base, all with two simple button presses — one at the start of the mission, and another at the end. If desired, missions can also be created at the end of each day by administration staff, removing the need for any changes to pilots pre-start and shutdown checklists.
At the end of each month, all flown missions can be downloaded in a simple spreadsheet, allowing operators to quickly and easily manage flights and missions in Excel or importing the data into other support systems.
“Mission Reports were initially designed for air ambulance operators throughout New Zealand to meet their contractual reporting requirements but we’ve quickly realized that all of our customers can benefit from this incredibly useful reporting and accounting tool — from flight training to airborne law enforcement, from agricultural operations to airborne firefighting. Best of all, we’ve made it incredibly easy to use,” said TracPlus chief innovation officer, Chris Hinch.
Existing TracPlus customers can now take advantage of this feature, which is included in their monthly plan.
