SkyDemon opens registration for free filling of Olympic flight plans

SkyDemon has opened registration for the free filling of flight plans via the SkyDemon Light tool, which will be effective during the period of the 2012 Olympic Games.

While Olympic airspace restrictions are in effect, SkyDemon Light will automatically detect flight through the restricted area and create a valid flight plan.

It also enables the flightplan to be customised and submitted directly to ATLAS control – which will be managing the flow through the restricted area.

In order to use SkyDemon Light – which is endorsed by NATS – pilots must request an account and provide SkyDemon with their UK PPL/CPL licence number beforehand. This enables the company to verify access to the system.

Pilots who do not have a UK PPL/CPL licence number will not be able to use SkyDemon Light, but will still have access to SkyDemon’s standard subscription software.

Though there is a charge to subscribe, the company will not be charging to file flightplans that penetrate the Olympic restricted airspace.

Tim Dawson, Chief Software Architect at SkyDemon, said: “We’re very proud to have teamed up with EuroFPL to offer free flightplan submission to so many UK pilots. This effort is funded entirely by the two of us, in the hope that it will keep lots of pilots flying when they otherwise might not.”
