ThrottleNet announces they have created a new mobile application for Helicopters Inc. based in Cahokia, Illinois. Helicopters Inc. specializes in the leasing of news gathering helicopters for television and radio stations nationwide.
The new mobile app is designed for iPad use by pilots and administrative personnel. It enables pilots to create manifests from any remote location. It helps pilots create Tach Tickets for each and every flight and generate remarks for such items as a description of the flight, passengers, revenue and flight time. The app also assists management with tracking of maintenance, components, pilot compensation, and client invoicing.
“The app is proving to be a great time saver for pilots who are beginning to use it as part of their flight preparations,” said Jeff Lieber, General Manager of Helicopters Inc. “Instead of coming into the office they are now able to submit their flight manifest from any available remote location. ThrottleNet has created a system for us that is extremely efficient and different from anything else on the market today. It’s completely custom designed.”
“The mobile app is the next phase for Helicopters Inc. as they continue to improve their services. We have built their software and other platforms and are excited to help them take their technology application to the next level. Strategically the app is in line with so many businesses who are now transitioning to mobile platforms for standard business operations,” said Marc Arbesman, CIO of ThrottleNet.
Lieber said the application is currently in use by a limited number of pilots and conforms to FAA regulations. He expects to gain final approval from the FAA in the next few weeks and expand its use to most personnel over the course of the next year.
