InfoTrust Group, a leading provider of XML-based technical information management solutions and services for the aerospace, high-tech, defense, and semi-conductor industries, announced today the availability of its TechSight/X Mobile IETP for Line Maintenance and its native TechSight/X iPad® Application for Flight Operations. Both tablet solutions further demonstrate InfoTrust Group’s mission to help airlines deliver the right information, at the right time, to the right people. By giving line mechanics and flight crews access to the most current maintenance and flight information on mobile devices at the point of performance, airlines can improve aircraft utilisation, help ensure real-time regulatory compliance, and reduce operational costs.
InfoTrust Group’s tablet solutions are designed specifically for use by aircraft mechanics and pilots. The TechSight/X Mobile IETP (Interactive Electronic Technical Publication) for Line Maintenance gives mechanics access to all of their Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, and Embraer maintenance and engineering manuals on both iOS® and Android™ devices. Search and navigation are optimized for touch screens to minimize clicks and eliminate the need for complex searches. Mechanics can navigate complex wiring diagrams, view and order from illustrated parts catalogs (when integrated to MRO or ERP solutions), and access fault reporting and trouble-shooting manuals while at their aircraft so they can perform maintenance faster and return aircraft to service more quickly than ever before.
The TechSight/X iPad Application for Flight Operations automatically delivers up-to-the-minute flight manuals and related company documentation to thousands of pilots dispersed across geographies. Pilots can acknowledge updates, and the application automatically tracks and audits pilot acknowledgement to facilitate regulatory compliance. To make finding the right information easier, pilots can add notes, highlights, and bookmarks that are stored as part of their user profiles and that are persistent from one revision to the next, even across multiple tablet devices. Effectivity filtering also helps pilots find specific information related to the fleets and models of the aircraft they fly faster than when using paper-based manuals.
“Tablets represent a new paradigm for technical information delivery,” said Olivier Joufflineau, vice president of InfoTrust Group’s ATA Flight Operations Solutions and Services, “and InfoTrust Group is proud to be at the vanguard of the airline industry’s adoption of tablet-enabled technical information solutions.”
Both TechSight/X modules are available to existing customers as upgrades to their current TechSight/X solutions. The TechSight/X iPad Application for Flight Operations also can be purchased as a stand-alone solution.
