SkyBOOKS, Inc., a Textron, Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, and affiliate of Bell Helicopter, has issued Release 18.104.22.168 of its Electronic Record Keeping Program.
This release focuses on alleviating the stress of Airworthiness Directive (AD) compliance by directing maintainer and operator attention to newly issued AD.
â€œJust like any aviation system, SkyBOOKS wanted to provide our customers with a â€˜back-upâ€™ for the back-up, said John Willis, SkyBOOKS Chief Operating Officer. â€œOur new AD alerting system will give pilots a sense of security knowing they will never overfly an AD and maintainers will have visibility of the AD as soon as it is issued, giving them ample time to order parts and schedule maintenance.â€
The SkyBOOKS landing page, which lists each aircraft as an individual line item, now includes an action required column. A warning triangle will draw attention to any aircraft with an open AD. In addition, the AD tab will have a bright red number indicating the number of open ADs for the aircraft. This will be highly visible from all maintenance tracking pages.
FAR 91.417 requires owners and operators to keep a record of the current status of applicable ADs, the method of compliance, AD number, revision date, and the recurring action. SkyBOOKS Release 22.214.171.124 makes it easy for customers to keep track of ADs and required maintenance by loading the AD and applicable information. The system then sends an email notifying the customer of the newly issued AD.
â€œSkyBOOKS focus on Airworthiness Directives eliminates the stress of staying compliant with regulations, so our customers can focus on their mission,â€ said Willis.
