Beverly Flight Center is a family-owned and operated flight training and aircraft rental facility serving Boston’s North Shore at Beverly Regional Airport for over 45 years. In May of 2021, a dynamic mother and daughter duo, Tina and Emma Anderson teamed up and purchased Beverly Flight Center. With their combined expertise and passion for aviation, their mission is to provide an excellent flight training experience while creating safe, competent, quality pilots. 

Offering both Part 141 and Part 61 flight training, Beverly Flight Center maintains a partnership with North Shore Community College and is a Cirrus Training Center. With 14 aircraft on fleet and 22 flight instructors, they have committed themselves to providing the highest caliber of flight, ground, and simulator training.

The Challenge

"Our flight school was struggling with maintaining customer documents and aircraft squawks. Now they are all easy to edit and view. It is also great that both employees and customers can have full transparency with the aircraft profiles, customer profiles, and the schedule."
Beverly Flight Center was struggling with outdated manual processes that made managing aircraft reservations, customer documents, maintenance tracking, and squawk management cumbersome and inefficient. Being in business for over 45 years, legacy ways of managing encountered significant challenges. Using a paper schedule for reserving aircraft resulted in confusion and scheduling conflicts. Customer documents stored on a computer were disorganized, with students and renters managing their own scanned documents, making it difficult to verify currency easily. Tracking aircraft maintenance on a separate spreadsheet led to a lack of visibility into each aircraft's status, causing potential safety concerns and increased downtime. Additionally, managing aircraft squawks in a separate binder further complicated maintenance tasks and impacted aircraft availability. These disjointed systems highlighted the need for a more streamlined and integrated approach to operations.
