Global Aerospace Adds Insurance App

 - March 6, 2011, 6:30 AM

Aviation insurer Global Aerospace of London announced the launch of its FlightDeck iPhone/iPad app at Heli-Expo 2011, enabling users to access the company’s insurance services via these mobile devices. Global Aerospace is demonstrating the app throughout the convention at its booth (No. 823).

The FlightDeck app provides easy access to the company’s eCert certificate processing system, including the ability to save certificates directly onto FligthDeck’s documents folder for later retrieval and printing.

The app also includes contact information for all Global Aerospace offices and key contacts. The EU insurance-limits calculator enables users to determine minimum liability limits for travel within the European Union based on aircraft weight, number of passengers, and baggage and cargo.

Users can also submit a light aircraft claim using their iPhone or iPad, connect to the company’s Web site or access an emergency checklist. And through an iTunes direct link, users can also save documents securely on these mobile devices.

While the debut of the mobile app does not signal the insurance company is quitting its day job to become an app developer, clients can expect more digital assistance in the future. An electronic pilot logbook is “coming soon,” according to Global Aerospace.
