Swedish-based company OSM Aviation Academy has joined a growing list of flight schools basing the management of their daily operations on the digital platform, FlightLogger. The implementation of FlightLogger comes in perfect timing as the academy is getting closer to normal operations following the coronavirus crisis.

OSM Aviation Academy was quick to launch initiatives as a reaction to the situation caused by COVID-19, one of them being the enablement of distance learning on some of their pilot training programs. Even though the implementation of FlightLogger was planned well before the pandemic, for Head of Training, Marcus Pihlflykt, the crisis added to the list of advantages of running a digitalized flight school management system.

“We had already identified the top values we’d get with FlightLogger long before coronavirus. However, the special situation we have been put in during the last months has emphasized the need to be able to run our operations and access all our data from remote locations. With FlightLogger we can handle everything from planning our training programs and keeping track of our students’ progress to booking training, registering class attendance and handling internal communication through the Message Center. This way, we are better prepared for future challenges,” he commented.

As flight school operations slowly start to normalize, OSM Aviation Academy looks forward to using more of the core features of FlightLogger – for example, the possibility to make in-flight school flight registrations and gradings as well as exploiting the new Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) module, which is soon to be released.
