Crewblast Aims To Provide Flight Crews Quickly

A technology-based staffing company launched this week that through the use of an app-based system aims to quickly organize and provide crew staffing for private aviation operators. Called Crewblast, the company offers a database of qualified and trained pilots and flight attendants that have registered on its system and downloaded the company’s crew app.

When an operator needs to assemble a crew, Crewblast sends out a push notification directly to the mobile devices of all crew members who can respond immediately.  

“The old way of staffing just wasn’t working well for the aviation industry,” said Crewblast president Timothy Griffin. “We knew there was a better way to do it by harnessing technology. Everyone carries a phone today, so that means we have a direct line to our entire database of personnel at the push of a button. Just last week we crewed a flight that needed last-minute pilots in under 10 minutes. That is what we are striving for.”

The Crewblast app is available for free on the Apple App and Google Play stores.
