The complete fleet will eventually be managed within the platform, with the first fully digital aircraft transition enabled by the FLYdocs platform due in Autumn 2018.

“We are committed to building best-in-class asset management operations which deliver increased value both internally and externally,” commented CDB Aviation Head of Asset Management Justin Goatcher. “FLYdocs supports our approach, and the platform’s superior functionality will provide us ease of use and multi-user web access to technical aircraft records from anywhere in the world.”

    - Rick Daniels Information Services & Airworthiness Records Manager Virgin Atlantic Airways
  • The platform’s superior functionality will provide us ease of use and multi-user web access to technical aircraft records from anywhere in the world.
