Customs and Border Protection (CPB) has certified Lobo:Labs’s latest online software service for eAPIS manifest submissions.
Last year, CPB implemented eAPIS (Electronic Advance Passenger Information System), which requires private pilots flying across U.S. borders to file outbound and inbound manifests prior to their flights. These manifests include all relevant information about pilots, crew and passengers, as well as information on departure and arrival airports.
CBP’s website does not store data, which requires pilots to input the same information even on repetitive flights, according to Lobo:Labs officials, who note CBP has strict rules about correct information and could impose severe penalties for data errors.
FlashPass.Net helps pilots comply with CBP’s rules by storing all pertinent information for future flights and providing a variety of data integrity checks. It also saves time by allowing the user to file directly from within the application, eliminating the need to visit CBP’s website, company officials add. Users should be able to file under two minutes using the software.
Yearly subscription fee: $60. Discounts are available for users of the company’s previous desktop version.
