St. Louis, Mo.-based ThrottleNet has custom-designed a mobile application for Helicopters Inc., an electronic newsgathering (ENG) leasing company. Pilots and administrative personnel are the intended users for the Apple iPad app. Helicopters Inc. general manager Jeff Lieber notes that instead of coming into the office, pilots "are now able to submit their flight manifest from any available remote location." The app can also be used to track invoicing, components, maintenance and compensation. Final FAA approval for the app is expected shortly. Helicopters Inc.'s fleet includes Bell 206B3s, 206L4s, 407s and Eurocopter AS350 AStars.
