Features

  • FDT moved to a brandnew higher capacity better performing dedicated server

  • New multi-leg option is now available (Ask how to get it)

  • New Risk Assessment 'System Report' added

  • New visual indicators for FRAT submission to OCS and OCS release of flights to the pilot

  • New About added to inform everyone of what the latest version # is and what has been changed/added

  • Time zone aware. FDT will now show times based on the time zone the pilot entering is in and then converted for company headquarters viewing. (We need to know the main HQ's timezone)

  • Freshened look for better smartphone/tablet usage (mobile friendlier)

  • Reminders upon login if a pilot has forgotten to entering key information (e.g. no landing times entered)

  • For overnight pilots (pilot starts shift on one calendar day but ends it on another) the system will return the pilot to the start duty day calendar date upon login if END DUTY time has not been entered. This will help solve the confusion some night pilots are having when entering a flight that occurs after midnight. The flight belongs to Shift Start as it concerns FDT. Reporting will still show the flight on the proper calendar date.

  • Renamed "New Flight" to "Create Flight"

  • Reminders added to login pop-up window if there are incomplete flights
