Airfields log local events of flight data to organize their business.
You do not need complete flight logs but landings and takeoffs at your site. As a first step we have implemented a data download into an excel sheet. You find an example at the end of this page. This solution is currently run at EDRT and EDRB but works for any airfield. The resulting spread sheet contains eventlogs like BlockOff, Taxistart, Taxistop, Takeoff, Landing, Hardlanding, BlockOn. It includes Timestamps by the second, Plane Ids. In the near future we expect a seamless integration into airport ERP systems.
Imagine how many extra opening hours you could offer to your customers and how many extra landing charges this will generate, - autonomously with no salary cost for tower people.
It is expected that unstaffed airport operating will start to happen in 2023 also in Germany for self logging planes. That will allow extended opening hours and will significantly drive profitability your airfield by reducing salary cost.
Typical airfield setup
The graph shows a typical setup to allow operating airports without people at the tower. This is normal practice in most regions of the world.
