CROSSMOS on Edelweiss Air

CROSSMOS® eTLB live on Edelweiss

Since April 1st, 2017 the complete fleet of Edelweiss Air AG is equipped with CROSSMOS® – the electronic technical logbook by CrossConsense, Frankfurt. The route network of Edelweiss not only includes most of the European holiday destinations but also some interesting places outside of Europe like Calgary, Cape Town and Mauritius e.g.
Edelweiss Air uses the pilot client as well as the maintenance client of CROSSMOS®. The Edelweiss fleet consists of short-haul as well as long-haul Airbus AC which are now all equipped with CROSSMOS®.
Fritz Zaugg, Head of Maintenance at Edelweiss Air says: “By introducing CROSSMOS ELB in addition to the Electronic Flight Bag, the cockpit of the Edelweiss Air aircraft now became paperless. The entire log book complaint process for both, cockpit as well as cabin crews is now fully integrated. The changeover from paper to electronic books went smooth and seamless. Flight crews and maintenance personnel appreciate the easy handling.”

About Edelweiss Air: Edelweiss Air is an expanding swiss leisure operator with close to 700 employees. Edelweiss Air carries 1.5 mio passengers yearly to more than 50 destinations in some 30 countries. Current fleet size is ten aircraft that are homebased in Zurich.

Crossmos eTLB now live on SWISS

CROSSMOS® eTLB now live on the entire fleet of SWISS International Air Lines

Beginning of this week SWISS International Air Lines finalized the go live of CROSSMOS® electronic tech log on its entire fleet. The last A/C was an A321 – belonging to the group of short-range airplanes which have been rolled out after the long-range A/C and the Bombardier CSeries (CS100).
Every single aircraft of SWISS’s diverse fleet of 94 aircraft is now equipped with a technical logbook which means that on every A/C there are two tablets with the CROSSMOS® software as well as a little router to ensure connectivity.
The main obstacles SWISS had to overcome on its way to paperless aircraft operation had to do with connectivity and the acceptance of the new technology by some of the crew members.
“I am sure that within a short period of time not a single employee wants to go back to the paper process. We can claim to be the first airline that does not use paper throughout the entire process of reporting issues in the flight and cabin logs as well as back-reporting them in the technical log. The whole process from collecting a complaint to archiving a complaint is digitized.”, says Marcus di Laurenzio, project manager of the technical logbook project at SWISS.
The next airline to be equipped with CROSSMOS® is Air Dolomiti, an Italian regional airline with its head office in Dossobuono, Villafranca di Verona.

CrossConsense on Flight Operations conference in London

CrossConsense on Flight Operations conference in London

On the world’s leading Flight Operations event the team of CrossConsense presented CROSSMOS – THE eTLB software.

In order to be well prepared for paperless maintenance, more and more airlines around the world are considering to implement an eTLB into their fleet. And CrossConsense is providing a software solution that works on every AC, no matter which aircraft manufacturer produced it.

Attendees of the conference also had the opportunity to hear about the experiences of SWISS International Air Lines when implementing CROSSMOS in their fleet. The presentation focused on the obstacles SWISS had and managed to overcome when they introduced CROSSMOS (uncharged devices, bad connectivity, narrow bandwidth – general problems which had nothing to do with CROSSMOS itself).

If you are interested in the presentation, please do not hesitate to contact us.

CrossConsense UserDay & GoLive Party CROSSMOS

Successful CrossConsense UserDay and GoLive Party CROSSMOS®

Last week we at CrossConsense had our 4th UserDay with about 70 guests. During these 2 days, speakers from different companies as Aerospace Software Developments, Armac Systems, easybrowse, ILS, Inmarsat, Swiss AviationSoftware, SWISS, Teledyne as well as speakers from the CrossConsense team presented subjects around aviation. While listening to a lot of entertaining and interesting presentations, the visitors could not only learn something about the “big” subjects in aviation – Big Data, paperless maintenance, predictive maintenance, connectivity – but also had the opportunity to widen their knowledge in regards to the daily business of airlines like e.g. inventory optimization, buying and selling spare parts etc.

One of the highlights was the presentation of CROSSMOS® electronic logbook in which one could learn how easy it is to enter items like bird strikes into an eTL.

The GoLive Party of CROSSMOS® as well as the UserDay took place in an impressive setting at TheAircraft, a venue with a CheckIn, a cabin with aircraft seats and an original aircraft turbine that serves as speaker’s desk.

At the end of these successful days, the audience was taken along into a future with Black Holes serving as a possible solution to satisfy upcoming computational demand.

CrossConsense merges AMOS at Condor and Condor Berlin

AMOS Merge of Condor – Condor Berlin

The migration of two actively used dynamic databases is a big challenge that needs a very careful and well planned preparation. CrossConsense successfully managed to merge the different AMOS versions of Condor and Condor Berlin.

The obstacles that the migration had to overcome were as follows:

 

  • Handle data clashes on several AMOS areas, such as part definition, rotables, workorders…

  • The customer wish of having all data exactly as in the source environment, beyond the normal AMOS data transfer standards.

  • Applying advanced data filtering to merge only relevant data linked to the current fleet and operations.

 

Due to the careful preparation and good cooperation between the project-managers on all sides (Condor, Condor Berlin  and CrossConsense) the final AMOS merge did not take longer than 72 hours and more than 16 Mio records were migrated in total.

I want to say a really big thank you to … Mirko Lang of CrossConsense who accomplished the nearly impossible during this merge, in my point of view.”, says Andreas Rüskamp, AMOS Administrator at Condor Berlin GmbH.
