1. Does GFO completely replace our booking sheets ?

Yes, GFO Scheduling is basically an electronic booking sheet. Students/pilots phone numbers (or any other information) are easily accessed by double-clicking the booking. GFO is also real-time, bookings made (or deleted) from one PC (or the internet) will immediately be propagated to all workstations. We also offer ProBook OnLine (the internet component of GFO) which allows users (students, members or instructors) to view and make (or delete) bookings over the internet, all in real-time.

2. How flexible is GFO ? Can I customize the booking system to our school requirements ?

GFO is incredibly flexible. Booking sheet hours & dates, time slot resolution (15 mins, 30 or 1 hour), contents (instructor & aircraft), booking options (solo, private training, IFR training etc.), booking protocol (if booking requests over the internet are restricted or not), equipment and services etc.

3. Do I need a LAN network on-site to run GFO ?

No, you can install both GFO Server and WorkStation on the same PC. If you do however have a LAN network you can take advantage of GFO's real-time capabilities (ie. ability to make (or delete) bookings from any PC within your establishment).
