Alaska flight zone getting a new service

May 26, 2011, 03:29 pm

Pilots that fly for the Department of Interior in Alaska will have a new service, software and hardware at their disposal, according to General Aviation News.

In May, the department announced a new regulation to its contracts, requiring all aircraft pilots that carry DOI employees, and in some cases cargo, have an Iridium Satellite Aircraft Tracking system on board.

Blue Sky network, a satellite tracking provider, has created a flexible plan for these contracted pilots. Most of these aircraft operators only fly for a few months out of the year, so this new plan allows them to activate tracking services for six months at a time, the news site reports. While pilots life insurance is typically something they will carry all year-long, the service does not have to be.

"When we heard about this new requirement, we realized that a specialized service plan was in order as many of the pilots affected are independents or owner/operators. We wanted to make sure they did not have to settle," Blue Sky CEO Jon Gilbert told the news outlet.
