Aeroplanned and Smart Enhance Integration to Benefit Flight Schools

Aeroplanned and Smart Management Systems are delighted to announce a new collaboration designed to streamline the integration between their systems, enhancing the experience for their mutual customers.

Smart, an aviation management platform focused on streamlining the day-to-day flight operations, and Aeroplanned, a forecasting platform designed to help flight schools’ complete students on time and optimise resource use, are simplifying customer workflows by enabling the synchronisation of student progress updates between their software systems through custom reports.

Ardmore Flying School, use both systems and are thrilled with the collaboration. CEO Irene King stated, “This is so important for us in the effective running of our flight school – it ticks the boxes for us in so many areas: better transparency of information for students and staff, enhanced ability to plan, improved capacity for profitable growth, regulatory compliance, and it even helps me meet a KPI with our Board … even better from my perspective!”

Jen Liddle, CEO of Aeroplanned, is also excited about the partnership: “We are passionate about providing accurate forecasts so flight schools can achieve the best possible results. The more integration we can provide with day-to-day systems, the better for our customers. It’s a pleasure to work with forward-thinking companies like Smart that prioritise the best outcomes for our mutual customers. I’m excited that we can provide this link between the systems.”

Nathan James, CEO of Smart Management Systems describes the partnership as “A massive win for the industry as Smart schools are now afforded the valuable forecasting data they require to maximise their resource utilisation and ensure on-time completions. Aeroplanned share our passion for General Aviation, and for reducing the complexities of managing a profitable and efficient flight training business. The business insights this platform can offer our existing and future Smart customers are a great value-add for our platform.”
