How much will FlightRepublic cost me?

Existing scheduling and invoicing systems charge you a monthly fee regardless of whether your airplanes are flying, or grounded because of weather or maintenance.

We think that’s wrong, which is why we charge a small transaction fee per flight instead.

So we only get paid when your customers are flying and earning money, and not when your aircraft are parked. No matter how big your school; how many aircraft you have; or what the weather is doing outside the window.

Why shouldn't my dispatchers be doing operational tasks?

Your dispatchers are the first point of contact for your customers. Whether it’s a new customer walking into your school for the first time or a long-time renter, you rely on your dispatcher representing your school the best way they can. Your dispatchers are the best sales tool you have.

So why are you paying them to do things we can automate, when they could be engaging clients and growing your business?

What if I already have a scheduling system?

You don’t have to use our scheduler. We can integrate FlightRepublic with most common flight school scheduling systems.

But does your scheduling system manage dispatching and flight release, update customer pilot files, and accounting systems, so you never dispatch an airplane or pilot without being fully confident that all of your records are up-to-date?

What if I already use Quickbooks?

FlightRepublic integrates with Quickbooks, so your payments are automatically collected, posted to your bank account, invoices and statement automatically emailed, and pilot files and accounts automatically updated.

How do you manage block rates?

Our system lets you decide whether to offer block rates and can automatically track balances in customer accounts. When the balance is getting low, we remind them to top up before they dispatch their flight, so that you are never left with a zero balance mid-flight.

Isn't it cheaper for me to do paperwork in my spare time?

Running a business is hard. Especially a flight school. As pilots, we know how important it is to save the small airports our livelihoods depend on and build relationships with the community. Instead of doing paperwork, imagine if you could use your spare time to plan open houses, host local reporters, and bring more clients in to grow your business?

What if I have a special circumstance you don't feature?

Clients have already asked us to customize scheduling, dispatching, block rates, and fuel surcharge options for their schools. The chances are we can already do what you need. And if not, we’ll build it for you at no additional cost.

What if I want to stop using FlightRepublic?

We don’t believe in holding our customers hostage. We don’t have long contracts, subscription fees or penalties for canceling early. Our goal is to help grow grass roots private flying.

If you want to stop using FlightRepublic, simply login into your Admin Settings, and slide the toggle marked DigitalDispatch to OFF.

That’s it!  Your records will no longer be updated, but they will still be available so you can print out the information to set up new pilot files.

And since we use a transaction fee business model, you will no longer be charged. But if you change your mind, all you need to do is reconnect your bank account and start dispatching again.

The choice to use FlightRepublic is always yours. But if you’re thinking about leaving, all we ask is to let us know why, because we’d like to have a chance to fix it and win you back.
