Flight Schedule Pro version 4 is Coming Soon

You may have already downloaded the new iPhone app which is the first step in an exciting new direction at Flight Schedule Pro.  The response from the pilot community has been excellent. Thank you for the helpful feedback many of you have provided!

We're now planning the launch of a brand new web version and there are other mobile apps and updates coming soon.

The new web version (v4) is Flight Schedule Pro re-imagined and will bring improvements to all parts of the product as well as introduce many new features and modules. If there is something important you think we should add, we'd like to hear about it.

Please feel free to comment below and let us know what is important to you.

A few improvements we're really excited about:

  • Modern, Easy-to-Use Web Interface
  • Responsive Web UI: Works on Desktops, Laptops, Tablets, and Smartphones
  • Drag-and-Drop Scheduling (already in beta)
  • New Pilot Records Management (already in beta)
  • New Aircraft Records Management (already in beta)
  • All New Accounting and Point of Sale
  • Student Curriculum Tracking (already in private beta )
  • All New Reporting
  • And much more . . .

When will version 4 be ready?

Version 4 is in private beta right now with 300 companies and the feedback so far is very positive. We're releasing new modules on a regular basis and expect the new version to be available Q4 2015.

How seamless will the upgrade be?

FSP v4 will be a seamless update if you're already using v3 because both versions use the same data.  Don't worry about this upgrade causing problems for your users either - our beta tests have proven that most users of v3 understand and can use v4 with no training necessary. It's really easy to use (and we're not just saying it).

We Appreciate You!

Thank you for using Flight Schedule Pro and for telling your friends about us! We sincerely appreciate your business and support. We're so excited to show you what we've been working on.  We are confident these new updates will have a positive impact.  Please let us know your thoughts . . . we are listening!

Sincerely,

K-State Wins Loening Trophy!

Kansas State LogoSALINA — The Kansas State University Salina Flight Team has landed the prestigious honor of being recognized as the most outstanding all-around aviation program in the country — and has the trophy to prove it.

For the first time in school history, the K-State Salina team was awarded the Loening Trophy at the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's SAFECON National Championship, May 12-17, in Columbus, Ohio. The team finished 13th overall at the event.

"The moment our name was called was absolutely surreal, and on top of that, we were given a standing ovation," said Tom Karcz, assistant professor of aviation and K-State Salina Flight Team faculty adviser. "The Loening Trophy is a piece of history and we can't wait to display it on the Salina campus."

The trophy is made of Tiffany's pure silver and is uninsurable and irreplaceable. It will be hand-delivered to the campus where it will remain until next year's national competition.

The team has 18 members, with 12 members for the competition team after a try-out process.

"This event isn't just about titles and trophies. It gave our students the opportunity to network with fellow competitors and potential employers,” Karcz said. "Aviation organizations and companies from across the nation attend, too, and one of our team members even had a job interview while we were there."

The flight team received support throughout the year from the K-State Salina aviation department; the K-State Salina Student Governing Association; Verna Fitzsimmons, CEO and dean of K-State Salina; individual donors; and a variety of corporations.

For more information on the flight team, the competition or K-State Salina's professional pilot program, contact Karcz at 785-826-2979 or tkarcz@k-state.edu.

 

 

New Feature: Aircraft Booking Alert

We added a small new feature you might like.  If you edit an aircraft you can now add an "Aircraft Booking Alert" which is displayed prominently when anyone creates or edits a reservation with that aircraft. Enjoy.

Better Flight Records

There are a lot of improvements in the works at FSP. One of those improvements is related to how flight records are logged and maintained. We want to streamline this process for you so you can spend your valuable time doing something you really enjoy doing, like flying.

We'd like to learn more about how you keep these records now. If you use Flight Schedule Pro for this how can we make it better for you? Please watch for the survey coming out via email.

Early iPhone release is now available (Version 1.0)

iPhone controlled paper airplanes

Powerup-11
Guess what this is?

Who among us hasn't taken a piece of paper and folded it into a paper plane?  And then let it fly on a direct path toward our greatest arch enemy?  Brings back memories of playing with my cousins on cool summer evenings as the lightning bugs flitted about and the grown-ups played croquet....

I'm not even going to write about this.  Instead, I'm giving you the link to the site.  This is just too much fun and too cool to miss:  Here's the link and have fun:

Thank you for placing your trust in Flight Schedule Pro!

As you know, FSP just completed a major upgrade to the system.  The iPhone App is already in Beta testing! Couple that with our renewed commitment to Customer Support,  we hope you are as thrilled as we are!

Single Sign-on is now available

You can now access multiple organizations with a single account on Flight Schedule Pro!

Once you've linked more than one organization to your account, you'll see a page of all linked organizations when you log in and you can easily toggle from one organization to another without having to logout and log back in.

Add a New Organization to Flight Schedule Pro

Want to add a new and separate organization to Flight Schedule Pro? This is commonly used for seperate company divisions or separate groups of people or aircraft.  You'll have completely seperate records within each organization, however, you'll only need one login. Just go to www.FlightSchedulePro.com and start a new 30-Day Trial.  Make sure you sign in with your existing account and we'll link the new organization.

Access another Organization that already uses Flight Schedule Pro

Ask the organization to add you as a user and send you an email invite.  Just make sure when you click the link in the email invite that you sign in with your existing account instead of creating a new account. Once you sign-in we'll link the new organization to your account.

Toggling from one Organization to Another

Once you've linked more than one organization to your FSP Account, you'll be presented with a list of your currently linked organizations right when you login.  Just click the name of the organization you want to access and we'll log you into that organization.  Anytime you want to "Switch" from one organization to other, you'll see a small "Switch" link at the very top of the page.
