Unveiling the Insights of Flight History Data

In the vast and ever-expanding industry of aviation, there exists a treasure trove full of flight history data. 

A digital vault that records the flight of mighty aircraft soaring through the skies.

Join us on a journey through time and technology, where every voyage tells a different story, and flight history data unravels the secrets of the aviation world.

Known as the skybook Record Vault

Chapter 1: The History of Flight Data

In the early days of aviation, flight history data was a collection of handwritten notes, manually logged to capture the bare essence of each journey. 

Fast forward to the present, and we find ourselves in an era where every twist, turn, and altitude change is meticulously recorded; and airlines undergo routine operational audits to ensure compliance with safety standards and regulations.

The skybook Record Vault stands as a testament to this evolution, where flight data history is automatically extracted from the pilots electronic flight bag (EFB) and presented in a user-friendly summary, with up to 10 years’ worth of available data and retrievable reports.

Chapter 2: Instantly Harnessing Data

As technology advances, so does the means to not just capture flight history data, but to also harness accurate post-flight data of all aircraft, for analysing and highlighting trends or potential issues.

The Record Vault is the cornerstone of skybook's flight data management, seamlessly integrating all the data in an instant! Gone are the days of waiting for manually inputted information. 

Using a comprehensive dashboard that goes beyond mere numbers—it's a visual harmony of full flight phase data, flight summary, detailed navigation log and a collection of downloaded assets and reports; arranged for in-depth analysis, strategic planning and sharing information.

Chapter 3: In-depth Flight Summary

Record Vault offers a complete summary of a specific flights journey.

The status events timeline showcases crucial touchpoints along the journey. From the moment a flight plan is uploaded, or the aircraft taxis on the runway, to the moment the aircraft gracefully touches down and the flight is signed off. Every flight phase is captured with precision, including time and name stamps.
