Aerobridge.io: Reporting Events

In this article you will learn how to report an events during flight operations via Aerobridge. Events reporting must have a photo and you can select what part of the assembly the event applies to. To perform these actions, you will need a account in Aerobridge Management Server, to get a account for yourself, please join us during our office hours.

What is a event?

During flight operations sometimes there are things you want would like to keep track of, e.g. how many times batteries have been charged (or discharged), if there was damage to the propellor etc. These are normally recorded in a system like Excel or notebooks that are maintained by the Drone Operator or Drone Service Provider. Aerobridge provides the digital infrastructure to report events and associate them to specific parts. This can the operator maintain world-class events management system and develop insights into what is going.

  • optionally a photo / image from your phone or available on your device if you would like to track that

Report an event

Follow the steps below to report an event that happened during your operations into the Aerobridge Management Server. If you want to associate a photo, it is a two-step process where you upload a photo first and then create an event associating the photo to a component:

    • Click on + Add a file
    • Upload tour photo and select File type as Photo in the dropdown list
  2. Step 2. Report an incident
    • Go to Trusted Flights -> Aircraft
    • Select the impacted aircraft and click on + Report an Event
    • Select one of the Impacted Components, add Notes describing briefly and precisely details about the incident.
    • Set the New status of the component, usually it is Damaged or Needs Attention, this setting will determine the assembly status.


Your event will be added to the management server, depending on what you set the Component status (e.g. Damaged or Destroyed), it will be removed from the Assembly automatically as well: the assembly status will be set to Parts need review

Good to know

If multiple components are impacted, then multiple event report must be created, in Aerobridge one event report is linked to one component.
