Third Party Integrations - Flight Scheduling

 

API

If you’re already utilizing Flightdocs integrations with some of our partners, you are aware of the benefits these connections can bring to your organization.  If you’re not integrating Flightdocs with any other platforms, we’d like to bring you up to speed on how you can connect Flightdocs other systems you are utilizing. Today, the most popular integrations exist between Flightdocs and other flight scheduling platforms.  Flightdocs utilizes a standardized REST based API to carry out 2 main functions between your flight scheduling platform.

1 – If you are updating your flight log inside of your scheduling platform, you can pass the aircraft total times automatically to Flightdocs, to update your maintenance status with the latest hours and cycles.  This ensures that your due list is updated in real time, and is always accurate.  It also eliminates errors created by having to record information in 2 places.

2 – Our API also allows third parties to pull due list items from Flightdocs, and display scheduled and non-routine maintenance (MELs) within the scheduling platform interface.  This can eliminate flight crews having to operate inside of two different systems, and also allows flight planners to compare flight schedules and expected utilizations to the maintenance forecast.

Current integrations exist with Cirro, PFM, Rockwell Collins FOS, BART, Avmosys, and Avianis. If you are not currently utilizing one of these solutions, Flightdocs is open to integrating with other platforms, so feel free to contact us to initialize a conversation with your provider.  Many customers with custom solutions also utilize the Flightdocs API to push and pull the information entered above, and our product development team is happy to assist with guidance in establishing a new connection.

As new developments continue with our Enterprise Platform, our API will grow to encompass more data from both maintenance and inventory, and could be utilized to connect with other platforms such as accounting and ERP solutions.

If you have any questions concerning integrations, please give us a call at 1-800-747-4560 or shoot us an email at customerservice@flightdocs.com.
