US charter and management company Alerion Aviation has selected aircraft record platform Bluetail's software platform as its maintenance records hub. Bluetail will provide the digitisation and management of all maintenance records and logs for the aircraft management and charter provider's fleet of business jet aircraft.
“With 19 jets and bases in New York, southern California and south Florida, it is critical to have a centralised and secure location for aircraft records and logs. This allows for timely sharing of information when an aircraft needs maintenance on the road,” says CEO Bob Seidel. “To eliminate that problem, we committed to being a paperless operation. We tried scanning our own documents early on, but we didn't have the right equipment or expertise.
“When I heard about Bluetail, it sounded exactly what we needed. It could do what we couldn't. Bluetail enables our operations to have digital files, which are shareable via the Cloud making them searchable by anyone we authorise. They're much more accessible to use and for anyone else with the need to know.”
“It's really easy to find an aircraft's current status, search previous maintenance records and even locate 337 forms and other major documents,” Seidel continues. “It saves us time and makes our operations much more efficient. It's consistent with our philosophy to be transparent with our customers and the FAA.”
“Alerion Aviation is a very forward-thinking operation, and we are extremely honoured that it has put its trust in Bluetail as its maintenance and operational records tech stack for its fleet of business jets,” says Bluetail CEO Roberto Guerrieri. “One of the key benefits is that Alerion can quickly share any information about any of its aircraft between its three facilities, the FAA and independent MRO service providers, which greatly improves its efficiency.”
In addition to streamlining its overall aircraft operations, having faster access to various documentation will help Alerion maintain the highest safety ratings in the industry.
“Our number one focus is safety, and our safety management system has earned us the ARGUS Platinum Elite rating, the highest safety rating available,” says Seidel. “We are one of three operators who have earned that rating. We are very proud of that.”
