eTripTrader, a startup highlighted at the first Tech Cocktail mixer in Boise, Idaho, recently closed a multi-year contract with Era Alaska, the largest regional airline based in Alaska. This contract will allow Era Alaska to utilize eTripTrader’s innovative SkedFlex Crew Management System (SkedFlex CMS).
SkedFlex CMS is a software platform that helps regional airlines manage their crew and aircraft fleet at a fraction of the cost of other platforms used by other regional and major air carriers. SkedFlex CMS allows air carriers to automate crew management processes done manually by airlines, which increases operational efficiency, reduces workloads, and ensures compliance with company and federal regulations.
With the impending January deadline for the new Federal Aviation Regulation 117, this partnership will help Era Aviation meet compliance regulations and fly ahead of the competition.
“We’re excited to have this new tool at Era Aviation because it will better ensure we schedule and operate a safe and efficient airline. The new pilot flight duty and rest regulations, due to roll out in January, will add significant scheduling challenges for airlines that do not have the advantage of an advanced automated crew management and tracking system like SkedFlex. This product will put Era on the cutting-edge of software-based crew scheduling, bidding, planning and dispatching for the foreseeable future,” said Bob Hajdukovich, Era Alaska CEO.
