Avtrak has announced a new reporting feature for its GlobalNet maintenance tracking system designed to meet Mexican DGAC compliance requirements. Similar to most documentation in aviation, the GlobalNet system is in English; however, Mexico’s DGAC requires the format of an operator’s airworthiness directive and service bulletin reports to be in Spanish.
Avtrak has added new system features to its GlobalNet system addressing the helicopter industry’s concerns about low cycle issues and new OEM requirements associated with them. It can now calculate alternate cycle-tracking data using customized flight log interfaces. The system incorporates formulas unique to each make and model of helicopter and keeps them up to date through Avtrak proprietary algorithms and master data sheets used within the system.
Avtrak has announced its U.S. and international regional training and IA renewal schedule for 2012. It covers regulatory trends in aircraft maintenance, compliance issues and an in-depth overview of both the GlobalNet and Gulfstream’s CMP.net systems. Chuck Parker, manager of customer service and training, told AIN, “We find that the interaction between customers talking about how they use it provides as much learning as through the instruction itself.” Registration is free and open to the public.
Avtrak (Booth No. 678) of Littleton, Colorado, and Component Control (Booth No. 988) of San Diego, California, are working to integrate the power of two of their software products to bring improved maintenance tracking to aircraft operators.
Denver-based Avtrak, in association with technology partner Advanced Solutions of Littleton, Colo., has entered into an agreement with Gulfstream Aerospace. The agreement stipulates that Avtrak will provide its GlobalNet maintenance management technology to be the foundation for Gulfstream’s new computerized maintenance program, CMP.net.
Avtrak also announced that NetJets has signed a five-year agreement for GlobalNet for the tracking and management of NetJets’ growing worldwide fleet of fractionally owned aircraft. “Finding the right solution that will support our current and future fleet has been a major undertaking here at NetJets,” said Jerry Schlesinger, NetJets Aviation executive vice president.
Helotrac II, Sikorsky’s next-generation Web-based customer aircraft maintenance tracking program, will use Avtrak GlobalNet maintenance management technology as its foundation. The system will provide Sikorsky owners and operators direct, online links to Sikorsky technical publications and will also allow them to manage their other, non-Sikorsky, aircraft seamlessly through the same system.
