Export & Importing a Schedule 2017-09-11T03:59:13+00:00

Info & Concepts

It is possible to copy an aircraft schedule from one version of Aerotrack to another. This may be required if an aircraft is sold to another company that also uses Aerotrack. The function will export the aircraft data to a spreadsheet which can then be sent to another user and imported into another tenancy. The schedule will remain in the originators tenancy but we recommend it is set to an “Inactive” status to avoid confusion regarding the current status of the records.
