ADSoftware has announced an official partnership with ATR under which it will use its Maintenance Information Systems to manage the aircraft manufacturer’s MRO and CAMO activities, including flight time and logbooks, supply chain, access key documentation, maintenance team planning, statistics and accounting, security management, and full data indexation and file conversion. In addition, ADSoftware will work alongside ATR to develop new processes and methods to integrate and manage key technical data, including migration to new aircraft and phase-in/phase-out processes.



Airbus and Delta Air Lines has entered into a multi-year contract to continue using the Skywise open-data platform and related predictive maintenance services. The airline will expand the use of the tool to its A320 and A330 fleets – comprising around 400 aircraft – to track and analyse their operations and performance data, and assess failure probabilities in order to anticipate maintenance tasks. Delta was one of the airlines involved in the development of Skywise Predictive Maintenance by co-designing, testing and making improvement recommendations about some of its key features.



Boeing has announced service enhancements to its integrated digital solutions portfolio that enable better and faster operational decision-making for customers. The announcement comes alongside a series of agreements and orders that demonstrate the value of this portfolio.

New integrated digital solutions include:



  • Boeing has acquired rights to the Crossmos software product from CrossConsense. The application will be adapted for development of a new Boeing Mobile Logbook, providing a full-fleet solution to enable flight and maintenance crews to enter and share maintenance information.
  • Boeing's new Reliability Advisor tool uses data analytics to automate and enhance the process of using logbook data to identify and address cabin maintenance and reliability issues across an airline's fleet.


Boeing also announced new agreements to provide customers with digital solutions, all powered by Boeing AnalytX:


  • Air Europa will adopt Software Distribution Tools and Airplane Health Management (AHM) for its 737 MAX fleet. AHM generates real-time, analytics-based predictive alerts, while Software Distribution Tools enable airlines to securely manage digital ground-based data exchange, and host data locally. It will also deploy Maintenance Performance Toolbox across its mixed fleet, which delivers real-time access to information that technicians need to quickly resolve airplane maintenance issues.


  • Travel Service will deploy Software Distribution Manager for the 737 MAX and Maintenance Performance Toolbox for its Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX fleet. Software Distribution Manager is a cloud-based solution, which enables airlines to manage the secure flow of operational data to and from the aircraft while on the ground.



Commsoft has announced that its OASES MRO IT system has been chosen by private charter and aircraft management company, Interflight Technical Services, based at Biggin Hill in Kent. Replacing the company’s existing MRO IT software, OASES will be used for the CAMO control of two Hawker 800 business jets and will be deployed to support engineering operations in its hangar. Implementation is already underway.



Commsoft has partnered with Yonder to assist with the development of a new Compliance module for its MRO IT system, OASES. This will combine enhanced document, quality and safety management, and is designed to give users the confidence that their operations are in full compliance with all regulatory requirements.



Lufthansa Technik has expanded its AVIATAR product range with three new apps. Ten partners and over 1,000 aircraft are now live on AVIATAR.
partsMate grants partners access to a pool of certified components and so enables airlines to simplify their material inventory management and share available parts with others online through loan and exchange transactions. The tool improves material availability, optimizes inventory levels and reduces capital lockup and overall costs.

marc (major asset realtime components) offers the transparent online localisation of particularly large spare parts such as inlet cowls, thrust reversers and radomes worldwide. There are only a few of these components on the market, which up to now has made the search complicated and time-consuming. Offers for urgently needed components can be obtained directly in the application. In addition to more common components, marc includes serviceable parts for Airbus A350, A320neo, Boeing 747-8 and 787.

APU Health Management, generates specific APU performance reports as part of Aircraft Condition Monitoring Systems. The detailed analyses can significantly reduce maintenance costs and increase aircraft availability simultaneously.



Pentagon 2000 Software has released an enhanced Leasing Contracts Manager module that supports a wide variety of time-control and cycle parameters to support contract management and customer billing. In addition to simple contract billing based on calendar periods, usage may be managed and billed based on hours, cycles, landings, and advanced formulated calculations. This enhanced add-on module compliments a full set of other contract management modules that support buy/sell contracts, repair contracts, exchange contracts, and import/export contracts.



Seabury Solutions has announced that start-up airline, Zimbabwe Airways, will begin the certification process with the aircraft, under control of Alkym Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance, with the first of four new Boeing 777 aircraft already having its data loaded. Zimbabwe Airways has selected to use the full Alkym suite and will phase it into the operation as it grows and matures. With the new Mobile platform, Alkym brings its current module list to eighteen.
