 - July 18, 2012, 3:20 PM

Software company SkyBooks is now offering its version 4.7 aircraft operations management system in two product lines, for flight operations or maintenance management. Both versions are available as either analyst- or user-managed.

“Segmentation in two functional areas and bundling core offerings is a result of customer requests and new feature enhancements,” said CEO John Willis.

Under the maintenance management section, SkyBooks offers maintenance tracking and alerting, component management and alerting, discrepancy and minimum equipment list tracking and alerting, document control attachment, real-time reporting, tracking of warranty item expirations, a document vault, inventory and tool management and revision services for airworthiness directives, service bulletins and maintenance manuals.

SkyBooks also offers full flight operations capabilities, including flight logs, pilot scheduling and currency alerting and some maintenance functions that are also available in the maintenance management module. SkyBooks is owned by Textron, which also owns Cessna Aircraft and Bell Helicopter.
