Zurich-based operator Premium Jet is the latest to implement the Web Manuals document management solution. The charter company will use the application to digitise and distribute its operational and compliance documentation. It is hoped that the decision will yield significant savings in time and administrative costs. The process simplifies the rapid authoring, review, publishing, distribution and control of an entire manuals library.
Thomas Henselmann, director of flight operations at Premium Jet, says: “Without the support of the application, we would have had a hard time meeting the deadline for transitioning into EASA. With the new EASA regulation, each operator is responsible for continuous compliance monitoring. The Web Manuals compliance library is a major asset in meeting this requirement.”
Web Manuals is used by more than 30 business jet operators, charter and wet-lease operators, airlines, maintenance and repair organisations, and helicopter operators in Europe and the Middle East.
Premium Jet cfo Fabio Hausammann says that the system has led to a range of benefits: “It has really helped with the editing process as it has reduced the need for manpower, and on the back end, we have a whole distribution process that is also managed; this is user-based for distribution through iPads and is very secure and professional.”
The operator manages a selection of aircraft that ranges from Citations to Global Express. Though it has not altered individual manuals, the system offered a simple method to distribute manuals upon acceptance. “All our manuals are currently with the CAA for approval,” continues Hausammann. “Whenever we get approval for a manual, we will distribute them through Web Manuals. When revisions are required, all of this work will be handled by the new software.”
