AAR has signed long-term power-by-the-hour (PBH) contracts with Volotea of Spain and fastjet of Tanzania. It will support Volotea’s new fleet of Airbus A319s with a home-base kit. The agreement includes management of the complete component repair cycle. It will also have access to the entire AAR pool of inventory through exchanges and procurement. The full PBH programme will grow to a fleet of more than 50 A319 aircraft. For fastjet’s A319 fleet, AAR will provide nose-to-tail management of airframe components and repairs, including deployment of its proprietary predictive-maintenance software to ensure the right parts are in the right place at the right time. Both contracts will also be supported by AAR’s global warehouse network, with a primary parts pool in Brussels.

Astronics Corporation has received an STC and PMA approval for its webFB Wireless Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) device for use on Boeing 737 aircraft. This approval represents the first time a wireless Aircraft Interface Device (AID) has been certified for use in the flight deck by the FAA. The ultra-compact webFB easily fits in the palm of the hand, yet incorporates the capabilities of both an AID and a wireless server. The built-in AID safely gathers essential data from the aircraft’s ARINC 429 and 717 databuses and conveys it to custom software or EFB apps hosted on the internal server. Using a wireless connection to portable EFB tablets, the webFB securely delivers this valuable information right to the fingertips of the flight crew.
