ThrottleNet announces they have created a new mobile application
for Helicopters Inc. based in Cahokia, Illinois. Helicopters Inc. specializes
in the leasing of news gathering helicopters for television
and radio stations nationwide.
The new mobile app is designed for iPad use by pilots and administrative personnel. It
enables pilots to create manifests from any remote location. It helps pilots create Tach
Tickets for each and every flight and generate remarks for such items as a description of
the flight, passengers, revenue and flight time. The app also assists management with
tracking of maintenance, components, pilot compensation, and client invoicing.
“The app is proving to be a great time saver for pilots who are beginning to use it as
part of their flight preparations,” said Jeff Lieber, General Manager of Helicopters Inc.
“Instead of coming into the office they are now able to submit their flight manifest from
any available remote location. ThrottleNet has created a system for us that is extremely
efficient and different from anything else on the market today. It’s completely custom
“The mobile app is the next phase for Helicopters Inc. as they continue to improve their
services. We have built their software and other platforms and are excited to help them
take their technology application to the next level. Strategically the app is in line with so
many businesses who are now transitioning to mobile platforms for standard business
operations,” said Marc Arbesman, CIO of ThrottleNet.
Lieber said the application is currently in use by a limited number of pilots and conforms
to FAA regulations. He expects to gain final approval from the FAA in the next
few weeks and expand its use to most personnel over the course of the next year.
