Heli-Alps Signs Up For Blue Eye To Reduce Cockpit Paper

 - May 22, 2013, 11:40 AM

Heli-Alps, the Sion-based helicopter operator, has signed a deal with Luxembourg’s MRX Systems (Booth 1935) for its Blue Eye eTechLog application and to manage its fleet’s continuous airworthiness activities. Blue Eye is an electronic flight bag system that allows pilots to fill out flight information and to report squawks and discrepancies. For ground techniciansx, the system can be used to sign off certificates of release to service.

Blue Eye takes advantage of technology such as the iPad’s speech- recognition feature so that crews are freed from typing detailed descriptions of issues. Moreover, Blue Eye provides a means of real-time communication between crews and technicians and it provides an up-to-date aircraft status after each technical logging event.
