Whilst we’re still young, what an adventure it’s been so far. Explore our story

The company was initially founded in 2007 but it took us a few years exploring several markets and for technology to advance before FLYdocs was born. 

Having worked with Thomson Airways on a small technical project in late 2009, we realised that there was no one in the market providing any advanced platform covering online records and data management for aircraft trading. Only a couple of other solutions were available in the marketplace and both were limited by functionality and design.

We had the seed for an idea that would transform the way aircraft were traded.  So we set to work to build a highly advanced, cloud based, digital transaction-oriented records, data and aircraft trading product that had all of the supporting back office infrastructure to help people get there.

The product and platform had to be advanced, unique and ground-breaking in order to take the market ahead of established lower quality alternatives.

We didn’t rush. 

Instead we spent two years  developing FLYdocs’ core functionality.  Word-of-mouth saw us land our first, and still hugely valued, customer – Virgin Atlantic in 2011. Further positive word-of-mouth led to both Cathay Pacific and ILFC coming on board in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Our first sales activity started in earnest in early 2013. The world, on the whole, did not know FLYdocs existed at that time, so naturally it took some time to generate awareness in the market. After almost 2 years knocking on doors we started to see major traction, and in 2014 began to sign deals with key international players in a trend that has continued and accelerated – in fact, since then things have just snowballed. 

In April 2015 Growth Capital Partners came on board with the belief, support and investment in the business to help us realise our global ambitions. This enabled us to scale the business by investing in our facilities and make a number of new key management appointments.

Shortly after this we were approached by Lufthansa Technik AG who shared our vision to digitally advance the aviation industry. In June 2016 we entered into a strategic global partnership to do this together.

FLYdocs today has over 50 international customers, offices in 10 countries, 350+ employees and the world’s most advanced aviation document and records management platform.

This is just the beginning of an amazing journey.

What they said

    - Heiko Holm, Technical Director, Wizz Air
  • We can instantly see a project status, identify queries and delegate team members to respond to them all within the system. This detailed visibility provides us with every confidence in our ability to successfully redeliver this large number of aircraft in such a short period of time.
    - Jan De Meyer, Technical Representative & Records Manager, Brussels Airlines
  • We expect the FLYdocs® system to facilitate smoother aircraft lease returns, through benefits such as the structuring of and access to our maintenance records.
    - Rob Saunders, Manager Engineering Development Cathay Pacific Airways
  • We have already enjoyed the benefit of cost and time savings involved with researching historical information – what used to take days to complete, now takes mere seconds to search and find documentation.
    - Jim Landers SVP- Technical Operations Hawaiian Airlines
  • The FLYdocs document audit was very comprehensive and captured a lot of discrepancies that might have otherwise been missed during a physical on-site documentation review. Once in a digital format, it was very quick and easy to locate a required document or piece of information.
    - Dean Pang, Engineering Executive at SilkAir
  • FLYdocs® allows us to be prepared and in a proactive position instead of reacting to document findings from a lessor just before the physical inspection starts. The feedback from the lessors is always positive as they can review the documents online and on different remote locations.
    - Werner Reiser Senior Manager Phase Out Program SWISS International Air Lines Ltd
  • We are excited to be moving to a new digital way of working that will transform our current engineering practices and we ensure that we deliver against our ambitious asset transition programme, keeping us and our fleet at the forefront of aviation in Europe.

  • FLYdocs not only brings a leading software solution but also specific expert knowledge in the area of commercial aviation records management.
    - Rob Saunders, Manager Engineering Development Cathay Pacific Airways
  • The visibility and advanced electronic real-time audit functionality across both the records and aircraft physical inspection sides of the process have allowed Virgin staff, our MRO partners and the lessors, lessees and aviation authorities involved in the process to pro-actively manage each delivery with ease.
    - 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.
    - Justin Goatcher, CDB Aviation, Head of Asset Management

    - Rich Poutier, Chief Technical Officer, MCAP
  • We were impressed by the technical capabilities of the FLYdocs® platform. We contracted FLYdocs to manage the complete project from scanning to audit, and have the FLYdocs team to thank for their hard work and expertise.
