Condor goes live with LBA approved Aircraft Fleet View
Condor Flugdienst GmbH went live with Aircraft Fleet View 2.0 – a Native App that gives the user an always up-to-date view on the airline’s fleet status. It indicates AOGs, delays and other important information. It provides the right level of detail to be useful but not crowded with information. A new feature is the CAMO Release to Service. This enables a guided workflow involving the commander and the CAMO for releasing the aircraft prior to each flight. Recently, the LBA (German Federal Aviation Authority) granted Condor approval to use the CAMO Release Tool.
At Condor, Aircraft Fleet View will be used by pilots as well as by the management. It is meant for everyone who wants to get a general overview over the status of the fleet. Users who do not have the time or the knowledge to dive deeply into the MRO backend system will be presented with the most important information regarding a single aircraft, a range of aircraft or the whole fleet.
Aircraft Fleet View sends push notifications, e.g. when CAMO in its browser based application gives the “Release to Service” or if an AOG happened.
Patrick Frey, Fleet Chief Boeing at Condor Flugdienst GmbH says:
The Aircraft Fleet View has been developed with focus on the needs of a dynamic airline operation. It enables Condor to remove old fashioned, static PDF Technical Status Reports from the briefing package and replace it with an interactive live view of the aircraft technical status.
Our pilots are able to access fleet wide data to familiarize themselves with the current technical status of their assigned aircraft. This enables better decision making, both safety and economy wise, even before arriving at the aircraft. The Aircraft Fleet View CAMO Release function enables a direct communication between Maintrol personnel and the flight crew. This ensures that all required maintenance documentation is available and checked prior releasing an aircraft for operation. Receiving post-flight information by the pilots, via the application, enables Condor to better coordinate maintenance services and prioritize maintenance service to aircraft with technical defects.
