Squawks are maintenance related issues with aircraft that may be reported by any client. Squawks that represent airworthiness concerns may be escalated to block reservations or checkouts.
Creating a Squawk
- Click Report a Squawk on either the calendar resource popup or the Things to Do menu.
You will be prompted to select the aircraft for which the squawk will be attached, then the New Squawk form will appear.
NOTE: If a squawk represents an airworthiness concern, enable the Block Reservations and Block Checkouts features. This will disable the creation of any new reservations or checkouts on the aircraft.
After a squawk has been dispositioned, the squawk may be edited to document the fix.
NOTE: The resolved check box controls the visiblity of the squawk in the system. Squawks that have been "resolved" will no longer appear on the home page alerts.
