THE CHALLENGE

How to Maximize Aircraft Utilization

In a highly competitive and heavily regulated industry, airlines must maximize the utilization of their aircraft while ensuring safety, compliance, and profitability. It costs airlines money every minute a plane is parked at a gate out of service or remains in a hanger overnight for maintenance. Technicians need to stay productive and turn around aircrafts with speed, accuracy, and efficiency. But how can you do it with the numerous airplane configurations and tons of technical data?

THE SOLUTION

Arm Your Technicians with the Information They Need

The Flatirons Fleet Pro Edition empowers technicians to find the right information at the right time to get aircraft back into revenue-generating service rapidly.

Author and revise OEM or internally generated maintenance content; capture new and revised content from OEMs in ATA iSpec 2200 or S100D

Import, revise, and deliver the latest up-to-date maintenance task cards

Release information on-demand in either ATA iSpec 2200 or S1000D to mobile or desktop clients using XHTML, PDF, or print-optimized formats
