AlfaCharlie is an innovative online platform for flight schools, charterers and pilots. The platform provides a variety of new communication tools and dramatically simplifies the booking process. Initiated by portrino, the AlfaCharlie project is focused on making flying more accessible to amateur pilots and providing passionate pilots and flight training schools with a common networking platform.

In contrast to other portals, AlfaCharlie combines an online community, a social network and a booking portal. Pilots and flight training schools can thus communicate across borders, search specific areas for available planes and simultaneously charter aircraft through an integrated booking system – also available under an app especially developed for smartphones. AlfaCharlie makes the entire rental process extremely accessible and easy-to-use for both providers and pilots.

Special features include a booking schedule with a share function and release workflows, automatic sunrise and sunset times with a location detection function, file management of information such as pilot license expiration dates and the capability to search for aircraft geographically.
