Features include a handover tab, downloading multiple flights, multiple document sharing, passenger boarding with passport scanning, and flight release status.
Selection of Multiple Flights & Documents
Following up the successful implementation of the Selecting and Sharing Multiple Flight Documents feature, we are excited to announce another new feature that enables pilots to easily manage their flight documents. With the multi-flight selection feature in the FL3XX Crew App, pilots can now select multiple flights from their upcoming schedule and access all relevant documents, such as the Crew Briefing and GenDec. They can then choose to send these files via email, share them with a handler, or combine them into a single folder. This feature offers a convenient and efficient solution for pilots who rely on the FL3XX Crew App for all their flight-related needs, providing a seamless replacement for PPS Crew briefing.
To access the feature for sharing flight documents, go to the "..." menu on the Calendar & Duties page and select "Share Flight Docs". Once you click on it, you will be directed to the "Share Flight Docs" page where you can view flights that are scheduled to depart within the next 48 hours (24 hours for the Dispatch App). By clicking on a flight cell, you can expand it to display the relevant documents associated with that particular flight.
In order to select multiple flights and documents, it is necessary to download the flights first. You can easily download a flight by using the button located on the left side of the flight cell.
To choose the documents you wish to share, simply click on the checkbox next to the document. Additionally, you have the option to preview the document by using the Preview button.
You can then utilize the sharing menu options to choose all the documents or select your preferred method of sharing.
The FL3XX Handover tab (available soon on Android) is a specialized feature designed to facilitate a smooth transition between shifts for flight crews. It provides incoming and outgoing crew members with all the necessary information about flight assignments for a specific aircraft, including details about the crew and passengers, flight schedules, and contact information. Having this tab on your flight details, significantly reduces the need for crew members to reach out to operations for information, promoting better communication and preparedness.
The Handover tab organizes flight information into the 'Past' and 'Future' sections, allowing visibility for up to 90 days before and after the current date. Provides a comprehensive view of flight assignments for a specific aircraft, including details about the crew and passengers, flight schedules, and contact information. It displays the previous flight and the upcoming five flights for a seamless transition between shifts.
Downloading flights for Offline and Airplane Mode
You have two methods for downloading single flights for offline use in the Crew app:
Click and open the flight: Each time you open a flight by clicking on the flight cell, the flight will be updated and downloaded automatically.
Swipe left and press 'Download': A status information bar will appear on the flight. To update the flight, you can click on 'Update'. To download the flight again, you can select "Download" or view the flight details stored on the local storage by clicking on the “Details” button.
You can also download multiple flights by using the "Download Flights" option, which can be found by clicking on the "..." icon on the top right of the Calendar and Duties screens. This feature allows you to download and store flight information easily.
You have the option to quickly select flights for the next 24, 48, or 72 hours, or you can choose a specific date range in the future to download the flights you need. Please note that you cannot download past flights or more than 3 days.
After selecting the flights you want to download and pressing "Download Flights," you will see a progress bar that informs you of the download status. Suppose you have already downloaded a flight using either the "Download Flights" option or the single download button. In that case, you will have the option to update all of your downloaded flights by clicking on the "Update Downloaded Flights" button. It's important to note that this feature only updates flights scheduled for today and in the future to prevent unnecessary resource usage.
If you decide to cancel the download of flights, it will only cancel the flights that are currently in the downloading queue. When you log out of the app or force-close the app on Android, all downloaded app documents and flight documents will be removed.
The download limit for flights is 30 on iOS and 10 on Android devices.
The offline mode feature allows you to access and use the app without an internet connection. All flight data is available for download, ensuring uninterrupted access to critical information.
With FL3XX's offline mode, you can access vital flight data even in areas with limited or no internet connectivity, ensuring a seamless experience and uninterrupted access to critical information.
Selecting and Sharing Multiple Flight Documents
In the "Recap" section of the app, you can now long-press on a document to reveal checkboxes next to all documents. You can select multiple files at once and access a new bottom menu with various options.
The bottom menu lets you close it, deselect all documents, and hide checkboxes using the "X" button. There's also a box to select all documents instantly. Tapping the arrow icon opens the native share sheet where you can choose a mail app, save files, and more. The subject and body fields are automatically pre-filled when selecting a default mail app.
By effortlessly selecting and sharing multiple documents, you can streamline your flight preparation, easily access files, and share them with handlers or compile them into a single folder.
Board Passengers and Passport Scanner in Crew App
Crews can board and add new passengers on the spot via the Crew App. Open the app and on the schedule page, tap on the flight you are boarding passengers. From the menu select Pax, and then go to Boarding, where you will find the list of passengers to board.
Dispatchers immediately see whether all passengers have arrived and boarded the aircraft. In case there has been a change, they will get notified and can run the new passenger against a no-fly list, or other internal checks and approve the change. They can re-confirm the outcome to the crew, which will be notified via a push message.
To add a new passenger to a flight, Crews can now simply scan the passport of the passenger.
Flight Release in Crew App
We display in the Crew App when a flight has been submitted to release or released.
Crews already receive a push notification when a flight has been released. We are improving the display of flights with the release status. Crews will see whether a flight has been submitted to release (in yellow) or has been released (in green).
Flight Release Status is:
- X - DO/Red
- S - REQ/Yellow
- Checkmark - OK/Green
- N - Private flight/Grey
