Historically, maintenance tracking was done with rudimentary tools such as index cards, whiteboards and paper logbooks. Given the sophistication of modern business aircraft and the complexity of managing numerous maintenance requirements, leveraging the latest web-based software technology would seem a good choice for aircraft operators and corporate flight departments.
From a maintenance-tracking perspective, tracking helicopter maintenance requirements with a computer or web-based system is relatively new when compared to fixed-wing. What are the differences between tracking your helicopters and your fixed-wing aircraft? Why are these differences important to understand? Here are a few simple steps that all helicopter operators should do to have a successful experience with their maintenance-tracking system. Fixed-wing operators can benefit from this also.
Business aviation operations need a maintenance tracking solution that ensures regulatory compliance and safety, and protects the value of their corporate jet or helicopter. Technology should only be part of the solution. You want a vendor who not only knows their way around a database and a maintenance hangar, you want a partner who delivers support as advanced as their technology.
Textron Aviation named Traxxall as a recommended provider of aircraft maintenance tracking for the new data hub. While previously exclusive to CAMP, customers now have the flexibility to select the recommended provider that best fits their needs.
