Flight Operations Portal

Flight Dispatch

skybook provides a seamless transition from your current Flight Dispatch process to a slick, more reliable digital process, with intuitive modules for monitoring flight sectors and the situation at airfields of interest.

As part of the Flight Operations Portal, skybook's Flight Dispatch software is accessible via any internet enabled device (including tablet and mobile), allowing you to manage your dispatch process efficiently before departure.

Dispatch monitor

The dispatch monitor displays the list of flights that skybook holds (based on plans received). Ops staff are able to review the plan, current weather and NOTAM for departures, destinations and alternates for each flight. The dispatch monitor also highlights the flight record when briefing material has been printed and logs which crew member has printed it. The information displayed on the list includes but is not limited to:

  • Configurable columns (Flight number, registration, Dep, Dest, STD, STA, OOOIs, Commander's name and sector sign off time and more).
  • Manual Release/verify flight (Or auto dispatch can be configured).
  • Upload Attachments
  • View ETOPS or Route Plot
  • View OFP, current weather and NOTAMS for Dep, Dest and Alternates
  • Assign Crew Members (Can ingest from Crew Roster Systems)
  • View AFTN Status (Integration required)
  • Alert Mechanism if flight is approaching STD and crew have not taken the briefing pack

Ops board

The ops board module provides an aircraft based gantt view of both planned and actual sector data. The viewable window is set to, for example t-4 through to t+24. Each 'actual' sector block depicts the current known status of the flight based on the data recorded in the journey log or entered manually by operations staff:

  • Departed early
  • Departed on time
  • Departed late
  • Arrived early
  • Arrived on time
  • Arrived late

Airfield Watcher

Provides a graphical overview of METAR, TAF and NOTAMS for airfields of interest. The airfields can be selected from a pre set of departure, destination and alternate stations based on the current flight list. Or you can create custom groups of airfields.

All METAR, TAF and NOTAM received for your airfields are analysed by skybook the second they are received. Whether it's the current situation at your airfields, or the predicted forecast for the next few hours, all information displayed by skybook is fully analysed and updated in real time.

Free up hours of time spent manually monitoring your airfields with automatic tracking, allowing you to manage time more effectively for a more efficient operation.

Airfield Watcher is available within skybook or as a standalone system.
