Risk assessments is a premium feature available to users who are on the Intro, PIC, SMB and Enterprise plans.

Having a record of the risk assessment for the mission, state of the pilot, state of the aircraft, airspace surroundings, and flight conditions are invaluable data points to accompany pilot checklists and flight logs, especially to analyze any unforeseen events post mission.

Similar to old-school log books or spreadsheets, previous risk assessment procedures have been informal, with unstructured qualitative data. Kittyhawk Risk Assessments formalizes this procedure by assigning risk scores and recording the conditions and circumstances surrounding a mission and flight.

Kittyhawk Risk Assessments are based on a scoring system utilizing predictive analytics of prior pilot missions and upcoming flight condition data. 

Risk Assessments comprise two elements:

Initial Risk Assessments

Initial Risk Assessment, designed to be initiated in the planning phase of a mission to help Chief Pilots gauge the risk of the mission and assess if different pilots or aircraft may be needed given the circumstances

Preflight Risk Assessments

Preflight Risk Assessment, designed to be taken immediately before takeoff and takes into account more real-time data around airspace and weather, as well as pilot health and well being
