Skylegs, flight operations specialists, unveiled a first batch of operational features to help operators combat COVID-19.Free of charge for the Skylegs user community, the first three practical solutions are now online available and in compliance with EASA requirements to reduce the risk of spread of the COVID-19 virus.

EASA Compliant ‘Aircraft Disinfected’ Tag 

Skylegs has created a simple and clear ‘Aircraft Disinfected’ Tag for operators as part of the post-flight procedure.

Operators select the new tag after a flight to determine who performed the disinfection (crew, handler/third-party or maintenance team). Selecting the tags is a quick and easy process, “and that is how these tools should be; no complicated processes to handle these urgently needed procedures,” Maxim Schelfhout, Skylegs Managing Director, said.

Disinfection tracking via BI

Operators can use Skylegs’ Business Intelligence (BI) to track the disinfection procedures across their fleet. The Flight Operations report shows the list of disinfections and the non-disinfected legs. Clear and concise filtering options (i.e. per aircraft, airport, country) are embedded in the BI tool. Visualization where the disinfection process took place is standard to help plan operators flights safe and efficiently.

Pandemic checklist 

We are aware of the numerous restrictions that need to be considered to operate a flight in this moment. Operators attach the ‘pandemic checklist’ to ensure that conditions are being met before starting the mission,” Maxim Schelfhout said. The checklist includes essential elements, such as consulting authorities websites for implications, checking restrictions on the departure and arrival locations, passengers travel history, risk of quarantine and availability of protective gear onboard.

These new features are available now at the Skylegs platform. More are on the way.

Skylegs is an Aviation Management platform where aircraft operators can administer their business. It comprises everything that an operator needs for their management, going beyond flight operations. Training, sales, finance, safety, maintenance, for instance, are also covered. The platform, extra services, Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and other apps make Skylegs a whole solution.

The customisable system ensures a smooth workflow and high productivity. Customers benefit from a responsive support, custom development, industry know-how and numerous interfaces with other key programs.
