Flights are logs on steroids, they combine the Fly and Log tools previously used in ScaleFlyt. With them, we introduce the notion of workflows and add a comprehensive suite of trade-specific tools.
What is a Flight status ?
A Flight status indicates what is the active state of the overall Flight operational workflow.
It helps identify what activities are required to move to the next state.
Standard Flight Workflow
I create a new Flight.
New Flights can be created in anticipation for the flight or at the time I want to fly.
Note: To quickly create a new Flight I simply provide a Flight Name.
I prepare my drone for the Flight.
I complete my Checklist(s), record Weather Observations, add Notes and document the Drone and Pilot.
I populate the Take-off date and time and I fly.
When done, I enter the Landing time or flight duration.
I add all necessary details concerning my flight, e.g. any incidents or special events.
When I'm done I log the Flight by manually selecting 'Complete'.
! IMPORTANT NOTE ! When the Flight is 'Complete' I can no longer edit the information.
