Geneva. 20 May, 2016. The aviation industry’s first smart online flight permit application is being launched by international trip planner, Djetops, in a live Beta version demonstration. PermitsGlobal automates the complex process of obtaining over-flight and landing permits, giving pilots and flight operators 24/7 control over their flight permit applications from a smartphone, tablet or via the web.
“PermitsGlobal is the first of the industry’s online tools to significantly change the trip planning process and revolutionise how pilots and flight operations connect, communicate and manage their flight permits,” said Samantha Hazelgrove, Manager of Sales, Djetops.
UK’s FlightGlobal will provide the data feed on details of global aircraft and operators; UK’s AirData for flight planning solutions; and Belgium’s Palm Aviation BVBA to manage permit applications.
In addition to contending with the general and special requirements for granting flight permits, the challenge for operators to date is that individual countries have different requirements and procedures, which can change on a daily basis. In this dynamic environment the process can be time consuming and busy pilots and corporate flight departments want a lasting paperless solution that accesses all the information they need, wherever they are in the world.
PermitsGlobal is available in two versions. PG App gives remote access via a smartphone or tablet, and PG Web is the desktop version where one `Member` licence gives access to multiple users. The service delivers live updates to the user on the progress of a permit application and a powerful history function can store all aircraft, passenger and trip data, including related payments. An automatic form fill from the data feeds saves time and eliminates errors. A dedicated Customer Support team and `Live Chat` function support both the App and Web version users.
“We have ambitious growth plans for our business and as our expertise evolves we will be bringing to the market innovative solutions for the management of all areas of traditional flight support services. Planned future developments include Fuel and Ground Handling and others will follow,” explains Samantha Hazelgrove.
PermitsGlobal is being evaluated and tested by a number of European operators and the final product will be available to customers within the third quarter of 2016.
