Identifying & tracking scratches, dents, buckles and repairs doesn't have to be a compliance hassle. The ReadyFlight ACT program provides an intuitive graphical interface with unparalleled capability to track these along with all associated documentation whether technical data, digital photos, 3D scans or about anything else. All this information at your fingertips on a mobility enabled platform that works just as well on the ramp and hangar floor as it does in the Maintenance Control office.
As a crew preflights an aircraft at the gate they note a dent. What follows is the call to Maintenance Control to determine if the dent is new or existing and the basis for continued operation. With ACT, Maintenance Control pulls up the tail specific aircraft graphic with all relevant data including photographs, tech data and the deferral basis. Alternatively, line maintenance, or flight crews (if authorized), can use a tablet right on the ramp to access all the same data.
The following are a few examples of that attention to detail for use in the real world
ACT is designed to operate as a standalone, web delivered application. No servers or software integration required. This permits it to be brought online quickly at virtually any carrier irrespective of size. Integration with a major Maintenance IT system offering is coming in 2016.
The 8tree / ACT end to end solution streamlines data collection and reporting by reducing complexity and eliminating paper. No more paper Dent Logs indicating the damage history of the aircraft. Centralized recording of major repair history available continuously, not just at lease return.
