Flatirons Solutions Teams with AerData to Enable Paperless Aircraft Maintenance

Flatirons Solutions, provider of the TechSight/X® suite of technical information management software for the aerospace and aviation industry, has teamed with AerData, a provider of electronic records management software, to further its mission to help aircraft operators, maintenance, repair, and overhaul organizations (MROs), and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) adopt electronic solutions for aircraft maintenance so they can reduce dependence on paper-based systems.

The agreement will deliver the first paperless aircraft maintenance environment through the integration of the TechSight/X electronic Job Cards and Visit / Work Package solution with AerData’s STREAM records management solution.

By managing the entire aviation service lifecycle electronically (from OEM source, through aircraft operations, to and from MRO facilities, as well as pooling and ultimately to lease returns), the paperless solution for job cards and records management makes engineers and mechanics more productive, increases dispatch rates, reduces heavy maintenance span time, and helps to ensure real-time airworthiness compliance.

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Nieuwendijk, Managing Director AerData said, “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Flatirons Solutions, a leader in technical information management solutions for airlines. It will help our customers migrate to a unified, paperless control environment that will eliminate significant cost burdens attributable to daily technical records management and airworthiness compliance as well as end of lease processes.”

“Flatirons Solutions is committed to helping the aerospace and aviation industry implement paperless solutions for aircraft service lifecycle management,” said JD Sillion, Chief Solutions Officer for Flatirons Solutions. “Teaming with AerData for electronic records management gives airlines and other aerospace organizations another advantage for controlling the costs of back-office processes so they can focus on doing what they do best, deliver superior passenger experiences and cargo on time.”
