Intelligent ETOPS Flight Planning through skybook 

Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards – or ETOPS for those in the know, requires a different approach when it comes to flight planning and crew briefing.

Air crew need to understand not only the routes and sectors they are flying but also the ETOPS entry and exit points, ETOPS alternates, Equal Time Points, ETOPS Rule Time and much more. 

Preparing this level of detail is very time consuming for dispatchers, who can find themselves going from system to system gathering the required data and manually plotting the relevant charts. Thankfully, we have the answer to this constant challenge and it saves a lot of time. 

skybook integrates with existing flight planning systems, including Jeppesen, NavBlue and Lido, automatically generating detailed ETOPS charts by extracting data from each submitted flight plan. 

It uses the route specific information within the flight plan to import data from other sources including the UK MET Office, EUROCONTROL, NOAA and ICAO SADIS.  This allows skybook to generate ETOPS route specific charts that include all of the standard ETOPS related items such as range rings and ETPs, but also layers of information such as significant weather and upper wind and temperature.

Our ETOPS briefing packs are class leading, delivering all the benefits of skybook’s system integration and automation, removing the hassle previously experienced by dispatch teams having to manually import the information. 

skybook delivers the vital ETOPS flight information via a single portal, making it available either as a PDF or electronically for crews to read on the flight deck through our interactive tablet application, saving time and paper in the process.

Isn’t it time you found out more about how skybook could help your operations?

Switching to skybook can help reduce operating costs by:
  • saving time
  • creating more efficient processes
  • improving consistency and accuracy 
  • improving accountability
  • creating a more accurate understanding of actual flight performance
