Washington, DC -- Flight & Aircraft Services Tracking, LLC has announced the availability of a new software package designed to provide single-engine and owner-operated aircraft with the same capabilities, convenience, and efficiency available to larger commercial operators -- and all for the price of a single tank of gas! FAST-FLIGHT is a readily accessible, simple-to-use program that will monitor key pilot and aircraft data, parts inventories, flight information, and regulatory and service bulletins.
"Owners and pilots of single-engine and light twin engine airplanes face many of the same challenges and requirements of flight departments and large business and commercial aircraft operators -- especially when it comes to dealing with Airworthiness Directives (ADs), Service Bulletins (SBs), and maintenance intervals, but up until now, they haven't had a means of tracking that and other pertinent information," noted Andres Darvasi, President of FAST-FLIGHT. "The 'big iron' flyers can avail themselves of "power-by-the-hour" flight monitoring programs that are offered by airframe and engine manufacturers that remind them of upcoming service requirements, maintain parts inventories, and create a comprehensive maintenance file on their airplanes. These service plans also make it possible for operators to anticipate and budget for virtually all of their predictable expenses, making it easier to identify potential savings and provide accurate and fact-based information on their costs of operation.
"As an owner/pilot, I was looking for a mechanism that would allow me to keep track of components, important dates that couldn't be missed, costs, and information that is required in order to comply with regulations and maintain the safety and efficiency of my airplane, but all of the existing programs were designed for big operators. That's why I decided to create a software package that would do all of those things and provide me with an easy-to-update and "automatic" reminder of things like supplier names and addresses, service intervals, and store that and flight data where I can access it and generate reports and document performance. FAST-FLIGHT does all of those things and eliminates most of the typical "owner anxiety" issues."
Darvasi pointed out that the software is designed to not only improve record-keeping and store basic information, it's priced to be affordable to virtually any aircraft operator who has access to a computer. "For a one-time registration fee of $100 and a monthly subscription of $19.99, operators can automatically flag ADs and SBs from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), customize the software to maintain parts inventories, IRS trip logs, warranties, receipts, Purchase Orders, oil changes and even discrepancies -- for one airplane or a fleet. It will literally help keep pilots current, safe and legal -- all for an annual price that's about the same as a typical tank of gas," he added.
FAST-FLIGHT clients may register one or more aircraft in the program and the software will keep track of each, easily duplicating pertinent information for making multiple copies. Information on the official launch date for FAST-FLIGHT and details on all of its parameters can be obtained by visiting http://www.fast-flight.com/ online or calling 202-386-6767.
Darvasi plans to attend the Sun 'N Fun Fly-in and Convention in Lakeland, Florida on March 27-April 1 and will be available to answer questions and provide additional detail on FAST-FLIGHT.
