Images provide clarity

Use SafetyCulture iAuditor’s image capture and annotation tool to display best practices by embedding annotated images and diagrams within checklists. Flight crews are more often than not virtual strangers before they hop into the cockpit. Use images to convey safety messages clearly.

Report on critical errors

SafetyCulture iAuditor allows you to instantly create reports as soon as your inspection is complete. Review and take corrective action on issues before they become critical.

Audit while you are at 30,000 ft

SafetyCulture iAuditor works in remote locations, even 30,000 ft in the air. Audit while you are offline and simply sync your audit back to your SafetyCulture cloud-based account when you come back online.

Centralize your safety compliance

Ensure your crew are all working from tested and high-quality checklist templates by creating standard company templates and sharing them to the team. Make changes on the fly and push out the new template so flight crew are always using the latest advancements and have access to the most up-to-date information.
