Charter Flight Compliance Program Unveiled by NATA
The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) rolled out a new flight-release system today at its Air Charter Summit, which is being held in Chantilly, Va. Dubbed “IC Check,” the system gives “professionally flown general aviation aircraft operators…a cost-effective and easy way to confirm and track compliance on a flight-by-flight basis.” NATA president James Coyne said IC Check has already improved “the safety, security, efficiency and market advantage of the progressive operators who are using the program.” IC Check is an online application that checks individual flight data to confirm compliance with all applicable FARs, in addition to other government regulations and company, customer, industry and insurance standards applicable to professionally flown general aviation flights. Its primary goal is to assess whether individual flights for which an operator exercises operational control are flown only with legal crew, passengers, aircraft and flight parameters. IC Check has been integrated with CTA/FOS and Bart, and there are pending integrations with Avtrak, ATP, ARG/US, Wyvern, Skybooks and several other programs. Additionally, it has been integrated with a weather data feed to record pertinent conditions.
