By Katrina Dixon
29 January, 2018

Behind the scenes of the increasingly successful FLYdocs platform is an expert technical team, whose role is to enrich the core functionality and future-proof the underlying technology infrastructure. As our client numbers and system users grow, and the volume of lease returns managed within FLYdocs intensifies, so do the demands upon this team to ensure continuously high levels of performance and scalability are delivered.

For that reason, we are again expanding our team and are pleased to welcome Paul Cardus, whose role as a Technical Architect will involve maintaining the current cloud infrastructure, planning for future growth, and ensuring FLYdocs continues to use the latest cutting edge technology as we increase our global client base and offering.

Here’s what Paul had to say about joining FLYdocs:

Why did you join FLYdocs?

Prior to joining FLYdocs, I spent 12 years supporting the global technology infrastructure and data systems for a multinational company that delivered cloud-based analytical software. I was seeking a new opportunity, and FLYdocs’ ethos appealed to me. To work for a company that is passionate not just about their platform, but also about the customer experience is a real privilege. I’m looking forward to the diverse opportunities and exciting technological challenges that turning the aircraft leasing and asset management industry digital will bring.

What can FLYdocs’ clients expect from you?

I understand how vital it is for our clients to be able to access their data from anywhere in the world on a 24/7 basis, and how we must use our initiative and remain flexible to ensure this is the case. I strive to deliver excellence and get a real sense of achievement when my efforts contribute to pushing technology KPIs to new heights, which ultimately adds value to our users.

What are your thoughts on digitisation in the aviation industry?

The benefits of having documents and data available within seconds gives airlines, lessors and MRO’s significant cost and time savings, as well as the opportunities to produce time-critical analytical reports at the touch of a button. With FLYdocs, moving from paper technical records to electronic speeds up the process of producing compliant documents for regulatory requirements from anywhere in the world, safe in the knowledge that asset records are both secure and protected against loss – and with new data regulations due to come into force in May this year, the business value this delivers cannot be under-estimated.

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.
    - Cemil Sayar, Director Technic, SunExpress
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
    - Barry Keenaghan, Project Manager, NAC
