Staffordshire UK, 16th August 2018 – FLYdocs, the aviation data and records management software provider and global industry leader in managing the lease transfer of aircraft and assets, today announced the appointment of André Fischer as CEO.

Founded in 2007, FLYdocs is leading the digital transformation in aircraft trading, with an ever-increasing number of airlines, lessors and MROs choosing the advanced aviation data and records management platform over traditional paper-based lease returns and asset management methods, or even replacing home-grown or incumbent software providers.

He brings a wealth of experience from the aviation sector, with his career spanning over 20 years, including management roles at Rolls-Royce, Fairchild Dornier and Lufthansa Technik, which he joined 2002 and has held series of senior sales and marketing positions.

FLYdocs welcome André during a period of rapid client expansion, with new clients including Nordic Aviation Capital, CBD Aviation, MCAP, Avtrade and Frontier Airlines, and significant investment in product R&D. André’s focus will be to develop a strategy, which builds on recent successes, brings FLYdocs to a wider audience by translating market requirements into innovative solutions, and leads the FLYdocs team to drive significant business growth.

Dr Christian Langer, VP Digital Fleet Solutions, Lufthansa Technik comments

“André’s appointment as CEO is great news for FLYdocs as they embark on the next stage in their journey of delivering disruptive solutions to the aircraft trading market. André brings a great depth of knowledge of the sector, and we are delighted that FLYdocs and their clients will now have the opportunity to benefit from his experience and expertise.”

André adds

“I am very excited about my new role at FLYdocs, a world class company with cutting edge products, a fantastic leadership team and highly qualified and dedicated people. I have been following the development of FLYdocs very closely over the past years and I am absolutely convinced that we as a team will play an important role in the industry’s transformation process, helping our customers to serve their clients even better in the future”.

André holds an MBA and Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering, and speaks four languages [German, English, Dutch and Spanish]. He will be based out of the FLYdocs headquarters in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

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
  • 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.
