Records combine the information entered during dispatch with flight data that’s calculated when the plane returns. The dispatcher has the ability to correct anomalies but (with some exceptions) these corrections are made one line at a time. It’s as if the record is written in ink. If errors are found, such as a previous hobbs stop time doesn’t match a subsequent hobbs start time, that is flagged with a colour code making the discrepancy obvious. Any line that is changed is permanently highlighted and accompanied by a log entry to identify the change. All records are saved in a database, backed up and duplicated in an off-site location. Various reports can be generated including a daily flight record, and a variety of business tracking reports for staff and management to analyze.
