Resource Management

In resource management, we will keep track of all our resources, from aircraft to balloons to classrooms. On the overview page, you can see the status of your whole fleet in the blink of an eye.

The overview page

On the resources page, you will see all the resources that are linked to your organization. Thanks to filters, some tabs, and a search bar on this page it is extremely convenient to find the resources you are looking for.
You will find the following information for each resource on the overview page:

  • Resource model
  • Registration
  • Picture
  • Flight time
  • Serial number
  • Hobbs enabled
  • Invoicing time
  • Maintenance time
  • Aircraft logbook time
  • Fuel level
  • Fuel capacity
  • Refueling unit
  • Service status

Resource detail page

For each resource you have, there is a detail page. Here you will find all the information about your resource, right down to the last detail, much like looking under the bonnet of your aircraft.

You can see when the resource is booked, who is booking it and what they want to do with it. From here you can also view the flight detail page for any flight in the schedule if you need more information.

In the Maintenance section, you will find your maintenance status, AD’s and SB’s, installed equipment, technical issues, work orders, maintenance status pdf’s and maintenance applicability. On the Maintenance feature page, we will talk in detail about how this feature works.

In the aircraft logbook, you will find all the logs of the aircraft.

Resource models and types

Resources, your planes, your classrooms and everything else are structured in the way shown in the diagram. Let’s say you have several Cessna 172’s and several Diamond DA42’s. We want to create 3 different levels to manage these aircraft for a couple of simple reasons. Firstly, we want to add the broadest group called Resource Types. Here we will add some general information such as flight options and aircraft performance options. Then we will divide the resources into equal resource models, such as all Cessna 172s. We do this because this is the perfect place to add maintenance instructions to resource models, as maintenance is the same for all resource models (you can add exceptions in the rules). At the lowest level we have our individual aircraft, so we can store important information such as insurance documents and so on that is linked to the aircraft.
