Flight School Booking is developed, owned and maintained by Connected Apps Ltd.
It was conceived late 2015. Its original concept was to consolidate the various IT systems needed by a typical flight school:
- Booking system
- Training record system
- Newsletter publishing
- Student billing (card payments)
- Voucher sales & management
- Aircraft maintenance scheduling
- Safety management reporting
- Log books
We would especially like to thank David Young of Kemble Flying Club, who provided advice and feedback during the development of this product. We contacted a few other schools in the area for more ideas and feedback and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
Our developer, Mathew Waters, is an active member of Kemble Flying Club, based at Cotswold Airport ("Kemble") in UK, having learned to fly 3-axis microlights over the course of 2015 under expert instruction from David Young, Tom Hay, Mike Oakley and Ron Gutfeld. He enjoys flying almost as much as creating software and regularly takes the TeamEurostar EV-97, Skyranger Swift2 and the Ikarus C42 out for a spin*.
* (Not a spin)
Mathew has a long history of software development stretching back to 1982, programming in assembler for the 6502 and Z80, embedded systems and on to desktop, iOS and web development. Independent since 2009, he created successful bookkeeping and accounting applications for Apple's Mac and iOS platforms and has a strong background in financial software development.
