IQonboard providing operators with free app for COVID-19 response

April 2, 2020  By Helicopters Staff

IQonboard based in Squamish, British Columbia, is providing its fatigue and daily health monitoring app to air operators free for 90 days, in an effort to help companies establish safer processes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company describes its fatigue and alertness test as a fast and easy to use graphic test taken on a touchscreen tablet – taking less than 90 seconds to complete. The patented technology, explains IQonboard, is built and backed by circadian science.

IQonboard is also providing its crew tracking IQtag at high volume pricing for low quantity orders. IQtag beacons can be assigned to crew, cargo, and assets to provide real-time visibility to ground operations, in conjunction with IQmap interactive map software that’s accessible from any device’s web browser.

The IQtag, currently avaiblle without a set-up fee or minimum order requirements, can help document which workers have been in an aircraft or vehicle with others within the last 14 days.


The IQonboard system tracks individuals only while in an aircraft or vehicle. It is designed to automatically populate a digital flight manifest and to calculate total payload. This data can be viewed live in the cockpit and is communicated by satellite or cellular to ground dispatch in real-time.
