Avtrade chooses FLYdocs to maintain quality historical data records

Global aircraft component supplier to utilise FLYdocs digital records platform


FLYdocs, the global industry leader in aviation data and records management software, are delighted to announce a new contract with Avtrade, the world’s largest independent supplier of aircraft components to the aviation industry.

Avtrade has been providing bespoke aircraft component and support solutions globally for over 30 years. They were searching for a platform that would complement their current Quality Management procedures in delivering extensive historical component data to their customers. Whether it involves compiling previous shop visit reports, work scopes or other aspects of a component’s history, all the information builds a comprehensive picture of a component which can then be passed on to the customer. It forms part of Avtrade’s commitment to position themselves as a global provider of aviation components of very highest quality.

The FLYdocs platform will be utilised by Avtrade in several ways. They will use the system to track and manage the historical technical records of their components , ensuring easily accessible traceability of components for repair in approved maintenance facilities. Centralising historical technical records data ensures full and immediate access to accurate and timely information about a component’s history thus enabling Avtrade to deliver components to the highest standards of quality and reliability.

Sean Swain, Avtrade’s Technical Director comments:

“We selected FLYdocs due to the functionality and intuitive nature of the system. It will greatly benefit our customers, giving them increased confidence in the provenance and quality of components that we supply.”

FLYdocs’ Director of Global Sales, John Bowell added:

“It’s wonderful to work with Avtrade and demonstrate the versatility of the FLYdocs platform to support any organisation involved with managing technical records across the aviation sector. Managing records is a critical part of Avtrade’s operation, which makes FLYdocs a perfect partner to help them offer increased value to their customers.”
