FlightPRO® was selected by the Finnish Air Force after a rigorous International tender process.
The Finnish Air Force needed to replace a myriad of obsolete, stove piped systems that were being used for planning and scheduling, with different systems in use at each base. The old systems were prone to errors, slow and complex, with significant manual data entry required to maintain their currency.
The Finnish Air Force was seeking an off the shelf product that represented low risk and predictable cost that could be used at Squadron level, with informa- tion rolling up to headquarters for reporting and analysis of data, budget man- agement, personnel management, and aircraft management.
Ocean Software led the implementation for the first two sites, providing both Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Field Service Representatives. The remain- ing implementations were led by Finnish Defence Force project staff with Ocean Software providing SMEs to support the initial design and configuration elements of the rollout. FlightPRO® now manages all aspects of operations, and training for all Finnish Air Force squadrons, as well as the transport and airlift supporting squadron, the UAV detachment,and the Helicopter battalion.
