Solutions You Can Count On

  • Crewmembers

    ELP’s CrewPortal Web and App communications platform and ELP’s ACARS tools provides crews with an efficient method for crew members to check their limits.​  This ensures crews are always aware of their limits, which helps avoid illegal departures saving on disclosures and fines. Providing crew members with the tools they need increase crew member satisfaction and reduces non-critical phone calls with the Scheduling Dept.

  • Management

    Through ELP Dash and RealTime, management will have the tools needed to monitor the day, plan ahead and properly analyze the past.  With What-if capabilities, management can proactively react to approaching IROPS, which has proven to be effective at minimizing the impact of delays and cancellations.  ELP’s Statistical dashboards helps management direct future planning and staffing requirements, improving future crew utilization.

I Have Just a Few More Questions

The Most Popular Question Recently Answered

How is ELP CrewRules RealTime different than ELP’s 117 3.0 or original 117 product?

Over the years we have listened to our customers needs, and have since built many additional tools and upgrades to our original version.  A few years ago we introduced our 117-3.0 product which is our web-based front-end with “what-if” capability for predictive modeling.  This year we are introducing our newest version, ELP RealTime, which has the stability of our earlier versions but with so much more functionality. The biggest upgrade is the ability to see max wheels up time and real-time view of limits by individual employees. If you are an existing customer, contact us to see how we can upgrade your product.

Yes. ELP’s Legality software engine was specifically designed with the ability to alter the rule set to accommodate multiple countries and a variety of core software databases.

Our CrewRules software was initially built to accommodate the US 117 rule change.  However, our management team had the foresight to recognize the need for other rule sets in the future, nationally and globally.  Therefore, from the start the foundation of our legality tool was built with the unique ability to change the rule set without affecting the engine of the product.  This has allowed us to accommodate different rule sets in different countries (i.e., US 121 and 135 FARs, Israel 117, CARs, and other countries regulations), as well as multiple legacy systems and core databases, such as Sabre, Lufthansa, AIMS, etc.

Yes. Our newest ELP CrewRules product, ELP RealTime, provides you with a max wheels up time, giving your team the information needed to make decisions prior to critical issues.  This feature is incredibly valuable as your team must make moment-to-moment decisions when an ATC ground hold has the potential to cause a limits issue later in your crews duty period.

As ELP is always listening and improving our technology, our newest version of our legality tool has the ability to recalculate a single employee’s limits every time there is an update to their current day’s flying.   This feature essentially is changing and updating in “real-time” within seconds of an update to a crew members schedule, improving visibility and reaction times.

Yes. We offer many opportunities for your crewmembers to be aware of their limits in “real-time,” without any intervention from your scheduling team.  We have an ACARS program, a Limits App as part of ELP’s CrewPortal, email bursting, real-time chat, fit-to-fly acceptance, etc. giving your crew members all of the information they need without requiring any effort from your staff.

Our engine is capable of handling any rule set, as well as custom rules for contractual obligations. Our engine was built like the foundation of the house, stable and proven, whereas the different rule sets, such as  117, 121, 135, CARs, Israel’s 117, etc.and different core databases are like the paint on the walls. which can be altered without affecting the stability of the “foundation” or in this case the software engine.

In 2013, ELP Aviation became the first software vendor in the industry to create a legality tracking tool capable of facilitating a large-scale rule migration. Our 117 tool facilitated the smooth transition between the old US FARs to the new 117 FARs, and has been used by over 20 carriers domestically and globally for over 6 years.

We have since used that experience to help our international customers migrate as their government agencies implemented new regulations. So, ELP is uniquely positioned to have the right software and the right experience to help Canadian carriers have as smooth of a migration as the US.

Please send me an ROI and a case study, so I can see how you have saved your customers millions every year.
