Greater Operational Control with Real-time Block and Flight Times
Imagine not only having accurate and automated block and flight times, but times that are also customizable and configurable to record multiple events. For example: doors closed, brake off, engine start, GPS movement of the aircraft. Block and flight times can also be integrated with your existing airline systems to ensure maximum operational efficiency. When it comes to OOOI times you won’t find a more accurate product than our AFIRS device.
AFIRSTM is unsurpassed when it comes to automating the collection and dissemination of block times and flight times. Crew pay, crew duty time, and maintenance tracking are all based on the collection of OOOI times. Typically, crews tend to be cautious and inadvertently round up a few minutes per sector. Rounding errors unnecessarily use time on the engines, airframe, APU and can lead to over contribution of maintenance reserves.
Perfectly accurate OOOI times translate directly into optimal crew utilization ensuring that crews don’t time-out ahead of schedule. As a result, annual crew schedules and projected labour charges will accurately reflect the airline’s operating requirements for its current load capacity. Accurate hour and cycle information also extends the time between maintenance intervals, maximizing utilization of life-limited parts. Precise OOOI times also lead to financial savings for operators on a power-by-the-hour contract, or lease contracts with a utilization component.
