skybook keeps an intelligent eye on the sky

In his latest blog, our Technical Director Simon Clayton talks about how skybook uses automation to intelligently import the latest weather data from across the globe.

Keeping track of the weather is one of the single most challenging factors in aviation operations across the globe.

On any given day, the weather picture can and will continuously change, throwing up constant curve balls that could result in the need to change, re-route a flight or worse, could see an operator having to switch to an alternate airfield, causing all manner of operational challenges.

We know how vital it is for our clients to have ready access to the most reliable and detailed weather information and that’s why skybook dynamically imports live global forecast data from the likes of the UK MET Office and NOAA, instantly refreshing the data ensuring that the latest is always available for Ops Teams, Dispatchers and Air Crews.

Should the weather picture deteriorate affecting cloud base, visibility, wind speed or any of your operational minima, skybook will intelligently flag the problem area, bringing it to the attention of those who need to know.

This type of intelligent identification and flagging can be found throughout skybook, in particular within our Airfield Watcher module and our Companion Tablet App, as skybook constantly imports the very latest operational data, comparing it against the minima for each client and automatically flagging it for attention should something fall below acceptable operational levels.

It’s this kind of intelligent automation that sets skybook aside from other solutions ensuring the delivery of real world savings, operational efficiencies, improved accuracy and accountability.

You don’t need to take our word for it though. Here’s what Samuel Eberle, Operations Control Manager for Helvetic Airways found when they integrated Airfield Watch into their daily dispatch: “Before using Airfield Watcher, our dispatchers made a weather briefing regarding their destinations at the start of their shift, once per day. A continuous weather briefing was not part of their duties."
