    Flight & Duty Tracker™ Home

    We have recently updated FDT with a fresher look and faster speeds.  In addition, the site works just like an app when you are using your smartphone to make entries.

    The new site has been designed to be responsive to any screen size (tablet, phone, laptop, or large displays).  The new Home becomes your new landing area after login giving you a snapshot of your information.  Flight Entries can now be made while offline right from the browser you are used to using.  You must first login with network connectivity before entering flights while offline.

    You can see at a glance the following:

    1. Daily Status - Following your company's procedures select the appropriate status.
      Optional: At your subsequent logins you can be taken directly to Flight Entry - off by default.
    2. Base - Normally this defaults to your assigned base, however you are able to change this when necessary.
    3. Currency - Your current regulatory flight/duty status, the information here is based upon your company's country of certification and sub-part of the governing body (i.e. CFR 135.265 or .267 or CAR's).
    4. Duty Time Start/End - Select to start and end your duty period.  A Duty Time Start must always have a Duty Time End.
      Split Duty Day - If your regulations permit and if requested by your employer this option would be visible. ot shown.
      Not Rest Time - Company specific option.  Not shown.
    5. Training - View of your current training event status.  All training events are customized per your company's request.  Color coding is based off of you country's regulatory authority.  Training ONLY appears when you are within a training window.  Admin users will see all upcoming training deadlines as was the case on the pop-up login window.
    6. Flight Time Summary - Snap shot view of your current flight times by aircraft and time period.  This information is derived from Reports - Annual Resume.

    Flight & Duty Tracker™ is highly customized for each customer company.  If there is an item(s) you don't see but would like to see check with your company's management personnel.

        NOTE: Flights that occur after midnight - you must first select the calendar date of your START DUTY time.  Example, you started your shift at 19:00 on 6-11-17, but you took a flight at 03:00 on the 12th, when you login FDT may take you to the 12th (the actual calendar date) first you will need to roll back the date to 6-11-17 and then enter your flight at 03:00.  The system will put that flight where it belongs for you.  The DATE BLOCK is your START DUTY DAY date.
