Following flight planning and other operational pre-planning, flight watch services provide an extra layer of flight support until a mission is fully complete. It benefits operators, crew, and passengers to know that they are being supported and monitored during every stage of their operations. Here’s what you need to know about flight watch services.
What is flight watch?
Flight watch is essentially dedicated 24/7 flight monitoring so an aircraft has support in case any unforeseen issues arise during an operation. With flight watch, operators can rest assured their flights and crew members always have a highly trained team of certified aircraft dispatchers overseeing their operations through all phases, including pre-flight, en route operations, and post-flight. Flight watch offers an extra set of hands to successfully navigate routings, weather, delays, and geopolitical activities that may arise during the course of a mission.
What are examples of flight watch solutions?
- Pre-flight summary plans and weather followed by day-of-operation professional flight plans which consider preferred routes, constraints, flow control issues, NOTAMs, and other routing logistics
- Weather, event, and traffic planning to reduce or eliminate ground delays, re-routes, and turbulence by making sure operators always have the most optimal, acceptable, and comfortable routes
- In-flight updating and alerting services, movement reporting, and confirmations that are sent throughout the flight to dispatch or ground personnel
- Concierge services and seamless Emergency Response Plan (ERP) integration to make flights more predictable, efficient, and safe
What are the benefits of flight watch solutions?
Flight watch solutions improve operational efficiency and safety. Operators also enjoy extra peace of mind and a better flying experience knowing there is an external team of attentive eyes focused on their mission.
What is important to consider when choosing a provider?
All flight plans should be performed by FAA-licensed dispatchers and reviewed by licensed meteorologists. It’s also crucial to make sure your provider meets the after-hours oversight best practices set by ISBAO and many SMS programs.
