Prince George, BC – Yellowhead Helicopters has recently added AirSuite’s Cirro cloud-based software to it’s arsenal of real-time tools to support the processes of flight managing, planning and tracking.

Among Cirro’s many features is a scheduler that allows managers to plan and coordinate aircraft by gathering aircraft IDs, base, timeframes, customer info, flight notes and personnel assignments. This calendar of flights can be filtered to show one base, or the entire database.

It gathers dangerous goods documentation, weight & balance calculations, fuel planning, itinerary and passenger manifest.  The automated flight following will alert the OSC to any overdue itinerary incorporating email, SMS and automated telephone calls.  The module can also be linked to satellite flight data monitoring & aircraft tracking software.
