AeroCalendar Features

We recognize that every company is different and has its own unique operational rules. It's likely that your company will not need or want all of these features. There may be other features that you need that are not included in this list. No problem. We customize the schedule to your needs. Just let us know.

User Level Security
  • AeroCalendar allows you to setup schedule access based on rules that make sense to you.

Here are a few:
  • De-activate a pilot's account without deleting it
  • Assign each pilot only the aircraft they are checked out in. The pilot cannot make a reservation for an aircraft you have not cleared them for
  • Notify pilots automatically via e-mail when their account status is changed
  • Instructors are automatically displayed on the schedule when you activate their account
  • Instructors can easily be hidden
  • Student pilots must include an instructor in their reservations
  • Student reservations are color coded on the schedule for easy recognition
  • Set the required rental frequency for students and solo students
  • Employees can make reservations and manage user accounts but not change schedule settings
  • Employees and administrators see all names in the schedule. Pilots will see their names on their reservations. All other reservations show as 'Reserved'
  • Instructors will see the names of all pilots they are scheduled to fly with
  • The schedule cannot be changed without first logging in
