Antwerp, Belgium, 9th Apr 2020 – To assist operators during the pandemic scenario, the Skylegs team has been working in close partnership with operators to make new features available for the Skylegs community. The goal is to present solutions to simplify new procedures that arose due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We feature here three solutions released (at no extra charge): Disinfection Tags, BI reports and disinfection mapping, and a special “pandemic checklist”.
“Aircraft disinfected” tag
EASA requires operators to disinfect their aircraft and keep track of the process. To control the disinfection process, operators can select the new tags after a flight and determine who performed the disinfection (crew, handler/third-party or maintenance team). Selecting the tags is a quick and easy process, and that’s how the tools should be. No complications to handle the urgently needed procedures.
EASA’s Official Safety Directive can be found here.
Disinfection tracking via BI
Operators can use Business Intelligence (BI) to track the disinfection procedures across their fleet. The report shows the list of disinfections and the non-disinfected legs. There are clear and concise filtering options (i.e. per aircraft, airport, country). Additionally it is possible to visualise on a map where the process took place. This data can also be integrated by the Safety Department for risk assessment and/or reporting.
We are aware of the numerous restrictions that need to be considered to operate a flight in this moment. Operators can attach the “pandemic checklist” and ensure that the conditions are met before starting the mission. 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, availability of protective gear onboard, etc.
Other helpful features for this period are under construction to be released soon. In the meantime, Skylegs is focusing on the new rules and recommendations that impact the air operations with immediate effect.
Skylegs team wishes the whole Aviation community all the best. Let’s support each other in these challenging times!
