Aviation Management and Support Software for Air Charter Operators Worldwide
Skydance Air’s aviation consulting develops 14 CFR 135 basic, full, greater than 10 passenger and upgrades to supplemental CFR 121 on-demand air carrier certificates. Please refer to SERVICES.
Skydance has developed SkyTrax – a Mobile Integrated Flight Operations System (MIFOS) for aviation operations and financial management support eliminating time-consuming tasks of tracking operations and maintenance surveillance, recordkeeping, and reliability and financial analysis evaluations. SkyTrax has been approved for integration into CFR 135 operators Ops Specs A025 and A061 (EFB and electronic recordkeeping system).
This system can also be used for Part 91, corporate flight departments and individual aircraft owners and flying clubs.
The data entry point is an iPhone App "SkyTrax" available in the Apple Library. The pilot enters the operational data and transmits to an online Linux server which processes the data. This process eliminates the hard copy flight log sheet.
Optimize flight operations by analyzing the information extracted from flight data processed for your operation.
The SkyTrax system is driven and controlled from the cockpit. The pilot enters the essential flight data into a cell phone app (iPhone or iPad). SkyTrax demo follows:
- Essential flight data, which may be transmitted in part before departure, provides flight following for home base. At arrival, the pilot completes the remaining flight data and transmits via cell or Wi-Fi to the SkyTrax Internet server wherever there is cell phone or Wi-Fi service. Flight progress can be monitored on the screen by displaying NM flown and remaining, lapsed and time remaining before arrival and estimated time of arrival.
- Incoming data, processed immediately, provides home base with instant access to flight operations and financial data.
- Updated flight operations records may be accessed, viewed on a laptop, PC, or TV screen and reports printed at home base or anywhere via your iPhone through Bluetooth to a printer.
- Each selected flight operation file may be viewed in detail on separate screens.
- Automates and eliminates the labor-intensive processing tasks...no other manual data entries are needed to track flight operations and financial performance.
- You can be in touch with flight operations and company financial performance from any point on the globe.
- The Flight Ops App can also benefit users, who do not need to be able to enter the SKyTrax system. In this case flight ops data will be stored on the device without data transmittal. The data can be retrieved and submitted to the user's email address and then opened in text/column format or in an Excel spreadsheet. The log provides a complete record of the pilot and/or the flight attendant flight record. No need to enter the internet to retrieve the flight ops log.
SkyTrax highlights of data processing:

- Pilot compliance and recent experience records
- Pilot duty time records by day, week, month, and year
- Analyzes standard operating procedure by providing a statistical record of each pilot’s performance over time relative to other pilots on selected routes
- Flight and cabin crew payroll records including IOE observation and longevity pay as applicable for each crew member.
- Pilots and flight attendants may track, view, and print their flight records covering any period with their smart phone. The data is stored and can be retrieved and submitted to their email address and opened in text/column format or in an Excel spreadsheet. The data is stored and transmitted at the same time.
- Aircraft takeoff condition and load sheet data may be entered into the Flight Ops App, transmitted and interface with an online software program, dispatch or other entity for computation of the takeoff performance data and weight/balance. The data is send to the pilot's email address in an easy to read format. The pilot will also have a written record of the data received.
- Flight operation reliability tracking categorized by the reason for the delay or interruption of the flight
- Passenger and cargo data tracking and revenue production based on of the rate structure on file
- Revenue operations versus maintenance/ferry/training flights
- Automatic invoicing of charter trips and freight carried on cargo and passenger aircraft. The invoice modules are live as the invoices are updated at the completion of each leg.
- Quoting charter trips is easy: Charges based on $/block hour or $/mile takes into account historical average NM and fuel burn per block hour for the various stage lengths. This is arranged in a matrix and linked to the quoting module. Airport landing, parking, ground handling and gate fees are included.
- Fuel consumption, FBO/Station, Fuel cost, airport landing, ground handling passenger/gate/parking all arranged in table format by station/airport for easy reference
- Aircraft maintenance and lease/loan costs
- The operating financial data can also interfcace with various accounting programs such as QuickBooks by exporting the file to excel, where the data may be included in budget analysis or the financial statement.
- Snapshot of operating profits/loss by pairing and flight #, which include revenue production and all direct operating cost functions and may be viewed in real time while flight operations are in progress
Pilots and flight attendants regardless of their company is on SkyTrax, can store flight ops records on the device. The file can be submitted to their email address and opened in text/column format or in Excel spreadsheet.
The log provides a complete record of the crews flight operations. No need to enter the internet to retrieve the flight ops log.About Us
