Staying Ahead of the Curve - Q&A; with Patrick, Aviation Tech for UPS

We’re always interested in how people are using our apps so when we got a note from Patrick about setting repeating flights in FlightTrack, we decided to ask him a little bit more about who he is and how he uses the app.


What do you do for a living and where?

Aviation tech, UPS, Chicago’s O'Hare Intl Airport


What phone do you use?



Can you tell us how you use FlightTrack for your job?

We track departures and arrivals on several different flights each day to help prepare for their service and maintenance. We use the app to help plan and schedule our days. We get between 4 and 6 flights on a given day at varying times so the app helps schedule that.


How does FlightTrack help you in your job?

In addition to above we get up-to-the-minute delays and changes in flight time and number on the tarmac so we always stay connected. Constant accurate updates in a mobile form helps me be more efficient and allows me to give attention to arriving aircrafts as they arrive. The app takes the guesswork out of scheduling so I can do what matters: give arriving aircraft the attention they need.


Any anecdotes using FlightTrack?

This AM at 3, I received my first flight info on my commute to work. The flight was going to arrive much earlier than expected and it was nice to have that info as I was heading in. Because of that, I was well informed and hit the door running where normally I would have been way behind the curve.


Thanks so much, Patrick, and thanks for talking with us!
