CrewBlast continues to experience record growth in its app-based contract business aircraft flight crew staffing service, with its database of aircraft pilots and crew expanding by more than 136 percent over the last two months alone. The company is now operating globally and has seen more traction in filling staffing needs in multiple countries.
“We’re thrilled to see how well our technology is working not only here at home in the U.S., but around the world, too,” said CrewBlast president Timothy Griffin. “As our database of pilots and flight attendants grows, so does our customer base.”
The CrewBlast app, which was launched late last year, allows aircraft operators to quickly and seamlessly find urgently needed business aircraft crews. “Recently, a personal emergency left a private aircraft one pilot short in the middle of an overseas trip to Cyprus. The aircraft operator used the CrewBlast app and was able to quickly locate a nearby pilot who was able to fill in for the remainder of the trip, resulting in zero downtime,” the company said.
Meanwhile, the company continues to release industry data on its website, including prevailing staffing rates and top aircraft type requests, which last month were the Global Express XRS and 6000, as well as Gulfstream G550.
