Aviation data and records management software provider, FLYdocs, today announced a strategic and game changing global industry partnership with Lufthansa Technik AG, one of the world’s largest providers of technical services for commercial aircraft. Believing in the tremendous positive effects of digital transformation in the aviation industry, Lufthansa Technik decided to participate in the growing market of digital records management by jointly accelerating an industry change, with FLYdocs’ unique experience and expertise.

Under this agreement, Lufthansa Technik has become a shareholder in the FLYdocs business, replacing global Private Equity partner GCP. However, FLYdocs will remain a separate, independently operated entity that will continue to drive industry wide change under the incumbent management team.

Adrian Ryan, CEO of FLYdocs commented

“This incredibly powerful partnership will help us accelerate and supercharge our pioneering plans for the global aviation industry. Both FLYdocs and Lufthansa Technik share the vision of a customer oriented global solution that covers pre and post maintenance aviation records, highly advanced analytics services and MRO point-to-point input of engineering documentation.

Building on FLYdocs’ unrivalled peer-to-peer paperless electronic aircraft trading capabilities and Lufthansa Technik’s unique experience in airworthiness and transition management, the partnership sets the standard and establishes FLYdocs as the global de facto aircraft records and document management trading platform. We’re excited about the opportunities this strategic partnership brings for all of our global customers, existing and future, our staff and how it helps advance the aviation market.”

Thomas Stueger, CEO of Lufthansa Technik commented:

“Lufthansa Technik is delighted to establish a strategic partnership with the world’s most advanced digital aviation records management system FLYdocs. FLYdocs and Lufthansa Technik management teams share the same commitment to excellence and visionary approach to drive industry change.

This partnership is a strong investment in the future of Lufthansa Technik’s digital strategy and is key to providing innovative products to our customers. New digital services – created in cooperation of the FLYdocs team and the digital business unit of Lufthansa Technik – will add additional value to our customers and shape the digital future of the industry.”

The ongoing investment into and development of the FLYdocs solution will create the largest digitalized repository of aviation documentation in the world, helping to drive efficiencies, automation and process streamlining for operators and lessors globally.

Together FLYdocs and Lufthansa Technik will develop and deliver transformational digital services for the aviation industry for many years to come.

What they said

  • FLYdocs has successfully completed lease return projects for Wizz Air in the past, which gave us great insight into the power of their system. Now with full access to FLYdocs®, we have the right platform to manage all of our records across the entire portfolio.
    - 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.

    - 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
  • The platform will bring much more versatility and control across the entire audit and transition process. We are also excited by the improvements it will make to our aircraft remarketing and trading performance too.
    - Rich Poutier, Chief Technical Officer, MCAP
