MCAP switches to FLYdocs for fleet records management.

Global aircraft leasing company to enjoy the benefits of FLYdocs digital records


FLYdocs, the aviation data and records management software provider and global industry leader in managing the lease transfer of aircraft and assets, today announced that MCAP, a global aircraft leasing company, has switched to the FLYdocs platform to manage their complete fleet.

With a fleet of more than 70 aircraft owned and managed, MCAP were looking for a platform to improve their aircraft transition management functions. While they utilize multiple IT systems in their operations, they decided to focus on reorganizing their data and record management functions and switched to FLYdocs. They selected FLYdocs as it will bring them visibility and instant access to all records for their entire fleet of aircraft. This includes online physical inspection reports used in mid-term audits or during a transfer [photos and videos captured via FLYdocs mobile apps] and aircraft records.

The platform will also enable MCAP to easily identify what needs to be worked on, during mid-term audits or when aircraft are coming to the end of lease, to ensure an easy and smooth transaction for both their current and next operators.

Rich Poutier – Chief Technical Officer, MCAP comments:

“We decided to select FLYdocs, as the platform will bring much more versatility and control across the entire audit and transition process for the company. We not only see the value that FLYdocs can bring to our leasing division, but are excited by the improvements it will make to our aircraft remarketing and trading performance too.”

FLYdocs’ Director of Global Sales, John Bowell, comments:

“We’re delighted to welcome MCAP to the growing community of lessors, who are reducing the time and costs of their aircraft transitions with FLYdocs. FLYdocs offers a powerful proposition to lessors; when they manage their records in a completely paperless way, they additionally benefit by reducing the risk, and protecting the value, of their assets.”
