The Reminders feature allows you to configure any maintenance event or reminder relevant to your operations. You may configure standard aviation events like: Annuals, 100hrs, oil changes, 91.411/91.413 inspections, or any custom event like: 250hr carpet cleaning, 3 month wash and wax.
Viewing the Fleet Status
From the home page top menu, click Fleet Status.
The reminder calendar displays the due date for reminders. For time based reminders, Chronos predicts the due date based on the average usage rate for the resource.
Creating an Operational Reminder
Operational reminders can only be created on bookables that have Components. For this reason, you can only create operational reminders from the Bookable details page. Click a bookable identifier to browse to the bookable details page.
- From the Bookable details page, scroll down to the Components section.
- Click Create a New Reminder
Configure the settings for the new reminder.

Date Based Reminders
Interval (days) and
Interval (months) fields are added together to compute the reminder due date. You may set either or both fields. The following table shows some examples of date based reminders.
|last complied date||interval||due date|
|30 January 2015||1 month, 10 days||10 March 2015|
|1 March 2015||1 month||1 April 2015|
For monthly intervals, when the Date of Last Compliance occurs at the end of a month that has more days than the following month for example January 30, adding one month to the date will select February 28. One month following February 28 is March 28.
Chronos learns the usage rate for your resources and uses that rate to predict when maintenance reminders are coming due. If your operations are fairly steady, the prediction will be very accurate.
Reminders that are predicted to be due within the Notification Window setting will be displayed on the home page and calendar.
