SkyNet Aviation has partnered with an industry leading flight planning provider in ForeFlight .
Through our existing ForeFlight API, any flight scheduled in SkyNet Aviation REACH can be sent to ForeFlight for automatic calculation, release, and filing. Once the flight is calculated, the estimated times in SkyNet Aviation REACH will adjust automatically. If payload changes (e.g., adding passengers or freight) an automatic request is sent to ForeFlight to recalculate the flight plan.
Users can also configure which ForeFlight documents are available to the SkyNet Aviation REACH user. View the flight plan and navigation log, weather briefings and charts, and much more!
Users in the #OCC or at the ground stations can also upload files through SkyNet Aviation REACH which will automatically sync to the flight folder in ForeFlight. Think accommodation or transport bookings, catering requests, special handling requirements – the sky is the limit!
If you want to know more about SkyNet Aviation REACH integration with ForeFlight, contact SkyNet through email@example.com or reach out directly to Jon Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Paul Chevalier (email@example.com).
Recently, SkyNet Aviation REACH client Hevilift brought in a Lockheed L-100-30 Hercules for some extra capacity cargo flying. Supported by SkyNet Aviation Aviation REACH Day-of-Operations and our extensive network of ADS-B receivers in PNG, the Hevilift #OCC team was able to seamlessly integrate this aircraft into their pre-existing fleet matrix with only a few keystrokes!
Below is a photo of the aircraft on the ground in Mt Hagen as well as a screenshot of the low-cost SkyNet Aviation ADS-B receivers Hevilift are using to support their operation.
Any #OCC operator knows that efficient management of aircrew resources is crucial for a successful operation.
SkyNet Aviation REACH provides a crew roster view function alongside a crew management capability. With some configuration work, we can interface with any crewing system your operation uses, including our partner, Air Maestro.
After SkyNet Aviation integration, crew names, rosters, and qualifications can be pushed and pulled between both systems. Crew that are assigned to a flight in SkyNet Aviation will automatically populate to your crewing system, and vice versa.
What if your operation requires crew that are not aircrew such as flight nurses, engineers, transport drivers, or charter client representatives? We’ve got you covered there too! Our Crew Management module allows users to create as many crew roles as required and assign those crew to flights and notification lists.

In our last few posts, we have focussed on getting the critical information you need to run your operation, to exactly the right people, at the right time.
Today we will showcase SkyNet Aviation REACH LASAW which stands for Landing Approach Surveillance and Warning.
LASAW is an automated traffic surveillance system that keeps an eye on aircraft movements to, from, and around your airports, runways, or helipads.
A LASAW installation at an aerodrome or heliport will provide:
1- Geographically accurate view of the landing area at your aerodrome/heliport; 2- Live positioning of all aircraft up to 260nm; 3- Customised landing approach warning zones and vector design; 4- Geofenced no-fly zones; 5- Detection and escalation thresholds; 6- Live threat status and path prediction of aircraft; 7- Active incursion alerts; 8- Emergency squawk code 7500-7600-7700 detection and alerting; 9- Landing and approach reports, exportable for billing and invoicing; 10- The ability to interface with aerodrome or heliport hardware based on pre-defined thresholds (e.g. approach lighting, bird alarms, SMS/Email notification lists).
Our LASAW hardware can be installed anywhere – server racks, standalone boxes with a wired power connection, or even on-location solar powered units. No landing sight it too remote!
The screenshots on this post show demonstration LASAW beacons at Brisbane (BNE/YBBN), Van Nuys (VNY/KVNY), and London Luton (LTN/EGGW).

In our last post, we talked about OCC Hypervision and the importance of having critical information readily available in your #OCC when you need it.
Equally important is pushing that information to the customer-facing staff in your outstations. Enter – SkyNet Aviation REACH Flight Information Data System (#FIDS)!
All you need is an internet or mobile data connection and real time updates from your #OCC will publish directly to the people on the ground who are executing your operational plan.
#FIDS will provide information on flight status, #OTP, departure/arrival times, crew assignments, freight loads, and more!
If you want to know more about SkyNet Aviation REACH FIDS, contact SkyNet through firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out directly to Jon Davis (email@example.com) or Paul Chevalier (firstname.lastname@example.org).
