eTT Aviation – In The NEWS
BOISE, ID – November 14, 2016. Air Choice One has secured a multi-year contract with eTT Aviation for its SkedFlex Air Operations Suite. SkedFlex will greatly enhance Air Choice One’s ability to navigate the complex flight, duty, and rest requirements mandated by the FAA, as well as the complexities of aircraft routing and station operations, as it continues to expand its operations and route network.
SkedFlex is a suite of innovative crew and aircraft management tools, providing its airline customers with the advanced capabilities they need to manage their flight schedules at a fraction of the cost of the outdated and less customer-focused solutions used elsewhere. In automating many processes and reporting functions that heretofore have been accomplished either manually or with less capable software, SkedFlex significantly reduces workload and improves operational efficiency and communication, while ensuring regulatory compliance. Flight operations, flight crews, maintenance personnel, and station personnel will be able to utilize the software on a user level to view and manage schedules, training currency/compliance, day-to-day routing, and much more.
“We’re excited to have this new tool at Air Choice One because it will further enhance our operational efficiency as we continue to expand our first-class product in our markets,” said Shane Storz, CEO of Air Choice One.
