Want to know the real reason CREWSWARE is so valuable (this from my wife) cute but funny….
Prevents divorce, bidding tool has me get the best block possible to accommodate the family as often as possible, thus less family “conflicts”
Prevents bankruptcy, over draft on credit card by showing me exactly what expense are that I may spend (wife orders) with currency conversion, right on pairing.
Easy to read so never any confusion with my flight schedule, oh yea, that also helps alleviate home stress..
Enhances the ability for me to buy my wife nice things by finding lost money from pay & expenses.
HMMM…she says “HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE”
Thought you might enjoy her take
I LOVE Crewsware!!!
Crewsware has saved me TIME and MONEY. There are so many features I love that comes with my subscription to Crewsware.
- The Expense Tracker has been an exceptional feature. I have been able to recoup hundreds of dollars from errors made in my expense pay summary.
- Speed of information. I get information from Crewsware faster and sooner than I get from GLOBE! An email to mi Inbox notifying me that Block Awards are ready always makes me happy to know I can get my block for the following month immediately.
- Bidding reminders is a great feature as well. I will NEVER forget to bid!
- Quick access to pairings that can be searched and sorted by route languages...fantastic tool!!!
- Day of Flight pairing details help me know what my Duty Day is going to be (along with a slew of other valuable pairing details) which better prepares me for my work day.
There are many, many benefits and features in Crewsware...and so many more that have yet to be discovered!
Crewsware just keeps getting better and better! Whether I'm perusing pairings for my monthly bid, or career planning through the "Position Planner", I always log onto Crewsware first. I find it quicker to access the relevant information than the traditional site. With a single log-in, and easy access to the drop down menus, Crewsware is my go-to solution for quickly finding info on items that I regularly check, such as Hotel info, Pay Tables, Expense Tracker, and Bidding Tools. Thanks for simplifying my work-life Crewsware.
Crewsware makes my airline life so much easier! The Pairing Filter helps me pinpoint the exact type of flying I want to do on the dates that I want. The Sortable Pairings option puts them all together so I can visualize where everything fits, making my PBS bidding much easier. The Shirt Pocket Calendar is emailed to me with up-to-date info the night before. I keep it on my phone so I always have my schedule with me. All my pairing info is not wiped out with red lines as in Globe if there is the slightest little pairing change! I find the Max Duty Time and Expire time are very convenient on a long day! Plus the iCal on my phone is automatically populated each month with all my blocks details, beautiful!
Everything you need for your airline life is provided through Crewsware. The Electronic Logbook is automatic and includes a route map of everywhere I have flown over my AC career, really cool! Features include Position Planner, Hotel information, Currency conversion, Who’s in town, plain language Equipment Pay Tables, up-to-date Meal Allowances and much more. On top of it all, the Expense and Claim Tracker is easy to use and automated. It has consistently returned an average of three times the cost of my yearly Crewsware subscription in unpaid expenses that would have simply slipped by me! I actually make money by using Crewsware!!!
Crewsware is totally worth the money and I highly recommend it!
I would like to thank you for the service that Crewsware has provided me and I can say with confidence, hundreds of other Air Canada pilots.
The system is easy to use, relevant and actually makes me money!
Let me start with ease. The calendar options are wonderful. I can choose what is best for my and/or what is best for my family and I don't have to buy a planning calendar now and waste time transferring my schedule to it.
The Pairing Filter allows me to easily sift through the relevant pairings saving me time and frustration.
The Expense Tracker is BRILLIANT! I use to spend hours going through my flight summaries in order to get the expenses that I was owed. With your Crewsware I can remit my missed expenses in a fraction of the time.
Thanks once again for such a wonderful product offered at a reasonable price Dave!

Crewsware is a powerful tool that has applications throughout the user spectrum such as lifestyle (commuter or local flier, line pilot or training department), seniority, and personal circumstance within each month of bidding, etc. I have used Crewsware with all these scheduling parameters and Crewsware has made the information and decisions significantly easier
The first and most important tools are the pairing filters. Eliminating unwanted pairings and prioritizing desirable pairings saves hours of combing through pairings and clarifying how to sort out my bidding for the month.
The calendars and pairing briefs are by far the best presentation of my month’s schedule not only for me but my family.
Finally, the expense checker has saved me hundreds of dollars. This alone has almost paid for the subscription to Crewsware.
Crewsware is a tool that every pilot should have and will find indispensable.
Being a Captain on the Embraer, I fly with a lot of new hires at Air Canada. I'm pretty sure the FO's I fly with are tired of hearing me sing the praises of Crewsware. We don't often get through the first day without me mentioning it at least once. Whether it's the Expense Tracker, the Position Planner, Who's In Town, or any of the other features, I can't imagine life at Air Canada without Crewsware.
I couldn't complete my monthly bid without the Pairing Filters. As a commuter, being able to find and sort the 4-day pairings is huge. Having the ability to sort by check-in/check-out time, productivity, and layover destinations helps me build a schedule that allows me to maximize my time with my family, AND enjoy the flying I do.
I've also been a huge fan of My Layover since it started...I've been able to discover (and share) all sorts of new places to eat in the cities I've visited.
The family schedules are a personal favourite as well...they're usually up on the fridge (and my wife's desk at work) the day they came out.
All in all, making the decision to subscribe to Crewsware is a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned...not only does it improve our quality of life while on the road, but it also helps maintain a good work/life balance.
Thanks again for your continued work in making Crewsware such a valuable tool!
That's probably why Crewsware is so useful to me. When time is of the essence you need data that is displayed in an easy intuitive manner.
I appreciate the pairings listings that show just the pairing for my operating position. I don't know how many times I've read a pairing thinking this is a perfect pairing ... Get all excited... And then notice it is CA only.
The filter option to knock out all pairings that fall into days I don't want to work is a huge time saver. Then exporting those pairings into the block planner makes it super-fast and easy to visualize what will and won't work for my block.
It's all about time saving for me and Crewsware saves me lots of time.
Everything else like expenses and log book entries are icing on an already very delicious cake!
Crewsware is essential to my Air Canada experience. I use the pay and Expense Tracker every month. However, the most valuable tool is the "Pairing Filters." I have very limited days each month I can work based on my family's schedule and being able to filter pairings down to what I can work and then bidding specific pairings helps me feel like I have some control over my life.
