The European Aviation Safety Agency, EASA, has approved the processes of Wizz Air to use the electronic Technical Logbook (eTLB) of AVIATAR in daily operations. In the three months since the fleet-wide roll-out on more than 140 aircraft registered in Hungary, paperless operation proved to be stable with the new seamless digital pilot-to-maintenance collaboration application. The assumed reductions have already materialised in terms of Wizz Air’s Maintenance Control Centre calls have dropped by more than 25%, proving the enormous impact of the application in the daily operational life of pilots and maintenance crews.
AVIATAR’s Technical Logbook offers prefilled text blocks and automated input masks. This enables pilots to record technical issues of the aircraft in real time, which are synchronised when an internet connection is available. It therefore reduces manual effort by up to 50% and improves data quality as well as transparency. The new solution works with any hardware device (e.g., tablet, smartphone or desktop computer) and provides pilots with access to aircraft status anywhere and anytime. It also offers back-up processes in case of connectivity issues. Real-time data availability, directly connected with the M&E system (maintenance and engineering system), ensures maintenance on arrival and enables a seamless pilot-to-maintenance collaboration – leading to decreased turnaround times and reduced costs. On average, thanks to the implementation of the Technical Logbook, closing time of defects can be halved.
