Skylegs, flight operations specialists, unveiled a first batch of operational features to help operators combat the Covid-19 pandemic. 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.
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,” said Maxim Schelfhout, managing director, Skylegs.
Operators can use Skylegs’ Business Intelligence (BI) to track the disinfection procedures across their fleet. 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.
“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.
