Software solutions provider ATP and OEM Epic Aircraft have announced a new partnership for maintenance tracking and technical publication distribution. Epic will utilise ATP's Flightdocs for maintenance tracking and electronic logbooks across its fleet of E1000 GX aircraft and will leverage the ATP Aviation Hub to distribute technical publications, including maintenance manuals, wiring diagrams and IPCs.

“The E1000 GX is an aircraft where performance, function and form are the cornerstone of our pilot-driven design process. ATP embodies this same commitment with its suite of aviation solutions,” says Epic CEO Doug King. “Our commitment to our operators includes ensuring that we have partnerships in place that enhance the customer experience and ensure maximum operational efficiencies, reliability and value.”

“We're very excited to partner with the team at Epic Aircraft,” adds ATP chief strategy officer Greg Heine. “Our product suite delivers a unique set of capabilities to aircraft owners, operators and OEMs. We're giving real-time, paperless access to the data and publications they need every day, right from their phone or iPad.”

The E1000 GX, powered by the Pratt & Whitney 1200-HP PT6A-67A engine and the Hartzell five-blade composite propeller, cruises at over 330 kts, climbs at 4,000 ft per minute, offers a full-fuel payload of 1,100 pounds, operates up to 34,000 ft and travels the US coast to coast with one fuel stop. It is equipped with the Garmin GFC 700 automated flight control system.

All E1000 GX aircraft will come with subscriptions to the fully integrated Flightdocs and the ATP Aviation Hub platforms. This advanced integration gives users one-click access to their Epic Aircraft technical publications and regulatory content without needing to leave their maintenance tracking platform. The ATP Aviation Hub also provides Pratt & Whitney engine and Hartzell Propeller content as part of its comprehensive aircraft library.
