Etihad Regional Selects eTechLog8
The Conduce Group is pleased to announce that its eTechLog8 software, along with the associated suite of companion applications, have been chosen by Etihad Regional, operated by Darwin Airline of Lugano, Switzerland.
Etihad Regional have selected the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 as the cockpit device for eTechLog8 and the integrated eCabinLog8 application will also utilise the FZ-G1 devices. The project will fully eliminate the paper Technical Log, Deferred Defect Log and Cabin Defect Log when fully adopted. The solution is a Windows 8.1/10 IoT native application, allowing it to be routinely used offline and only requiring an internet connection to transmit data when appropriate. A fully functioning web application back end (eCentral8) is used to configure the system and monitor/manage all line maintenance activities for the fleet. eTechLog8 has been built around SPEC 2000 and complies with the regulatory requirements as presented in EASA AMC 20-25 and FAA AC120-76C. Adoption of the eTechLog8 solution brings many benefits to the airline including significantly increased data accuracy, more immediate access to the data across the business, and integration of data with the airline back office ERP systems.
Paul Boyd, Managing Director – Conduce, stated that “The selection of eTechLog8 by Etihad Regional shows how comprehensive the solution is in meeting the requirements of the various regulatory authorities. Conduce provide a full turnkey solution to the customer as well as providing total 24/7 first line product support to the airline.”
Klemen Kete, Head of Quality Management – Etihad Regional, commented that “the objective to remove the paper aircraft technical logbooks and replacing them with a robust and proven electronic solution should be a top priority for any airline as the business benefits are significant. We selected Conduce because of their expertise in this area and because of the in-built flexibility of the solution to meet our requirements both today and for tomorrow.”
