Dispatch checks can be defined as the items you choose to have the system check at the time of dispatch. For example, at the time a flight is dispatched, you can check to see if the pilot satisfies aircraft requirements such as ratings, endorsements, type checkouts, total time, etc. You can also verify that the pilot has a current medical, proper TSA Documentation, up-to-date pilot currency items, and meets other requirements such as "days since last flown in type" and "last flight date".
Flight Schedule Pro can also check to verify aircraft airworthiness at the time of the dispatch.You have the option of what happens if any of those checks are not satisfied. If you'd like, you can stop the dispatch altogether.* On the other hand, you can allow the dispatch to go through and conveniently display any unsatisfied checks.
*User's with the permission "Can Override Dispatch Check Errors" can always proceed with a dispatch.
