The UpTime Cloud web portal improves the Company’s software usability, while providing enhancements to security and infrastructure. The new web-based interface allows customers to access all products through a single web portal, providing an improved look and feel.

With UpTime Cloud, FLYHT can provide airline executives, operations, maintenance directors, and other stakeholders, tailored views on their business data to help them make informed, cost-saving and potentially lifesaving decisions,” remarked David Perez, Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Our products give them insight into their operations, enabling them to take appropriate action to control and grow their business.”

The UpTime Cloud suite of products includes Iridium satellite communications with FLYHTMail™ and FLYHTVoice™; real-time flight tacking with FLYHTLog™ and FLYHTASD™ (aircraft situational display); aircraft health monitoring with FLYHTHealth™; along with fuel management, FLYHTFuel™ and real-time flight data recorder streaming, FLYHTStream™.

UpTime Cloud products are part of FLYHT’s ongoing effort to offer greater value to customers by delivering a configurable flight tracking solution combined with business intelligence applications and data analytics. The UpTime Cloud solution has been deployed for select customers. New customers will be enabled on Uptime Cloud while legacy customers will migrate to Uptime Cloud over time according to their business priorities.
