Miami, Florida-based online flight operations system provider SchedAero (Avinode, Booth H430) announced here at ABACE 2014 it has received recognition from the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) as an electronic record keeping system for Flight and Duty Times.

DGCA requirements mandate that operators have a secure and transparent computerized system with an online portal that the agency can use to monitor their operations. SchedAero is a subsidiary of aviation data and charter marketplace portal provider Avinode.

“SchedAero and Avinode have always seen India as an interesting market, and with this latest development we are now able to offer a more complete product for the Indian market,” said Johan Sjoberg, SchedAero’s managing director.

SchedAero gives operators the ability to manage their entire process online, from a client’s trip request to pilots’ flight logs.

“Having worked with SchedAero for more than a year, I am very pleased with the system and its continued developments,” said Chris Neaves, chief of flight operations for Thriveni Earthmovers Pvt. Ltd. “As an operator in India, we find this latest development to be a great improvement for us.”
