SmartLynx Airlines moves further toward Paperless Operations
SmartLynx Airlines is pleased to announce that it has obtained Latvian and Estonian CAA approval for eTechLog8 as provided by Conduce Group Limited to totally replace its current paper-based aircraft technical log procedure with this fully electronic solution.
The eTechLog8 application uses the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 hardware and eliminates the paper technical log. eTechLog8 is an aircraft-centric solution that contains all the required functionality on the device so that is can be routinely used offline when required.
SmartLynx has adopted a single instance of eTechLog8 to fully manage their multi AOC fleet of aircraft. This ensures that common company processes and procedures can be adopted for both AOCs.
eTechLog8 has also been integrated with SmartLynx’s CAMO system, Commsoft OASES, giving real-time data availability and reduced administration costs by updating the aircraft records automatically whilst at the same time significantly reducing errors and delays that may occur with manual data entry.
Olga Arbatska, Engineering Manager, SmartLynx - “Following extensive market evaluation and the completion of the flight trials of eTechLog8 we are convinced that the live integrated eTechLog8 application will significantly improve our CAMO activities by giving real-time updates on WO completion and defect opening and closing. Having access to real-time aircraft status information will allow us to be more proactive in managing fleet airworthiness, reducing errors and unscheduled aircraft downtime. The eTechLog8 is a great addition to our Electronic Flight Bag which has been in operation for over two years.”
Paul Boyd, Managing Director, Conduce Group - “The project team at SmartLynx have achieved a significant breakthrough in the adoption of eTechLog8 with its multi-AOC and multi-NAA approval for their continued paperless operations in the cockpit and on the ground.”
