Loganair has chosen to continue its relationship with Vistair’s DocuNet to provide a coherent, single point of control for managing all operational documentation including OEM data for their ATR fleet.
Loganair, known as Scotland’s Airline, was founded in 1962 and is one of the UK’s longest established airline operations. Since that time, its route network has grown to encompass over 40 routes to and from Scotland, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Norway and Ireland, making it the Uk’s largest regional airline. In 2018, they introduced the ATR42 to it’s fleet, forming part of the airline’s future operational plans under the Loganair brand.
Vistair has worked in partnership with Loganair since 2012, when DocuNet was first implemented to support publication of its OEM paper manuals. In 2018, Loganair invested in paperless technology by rolling out 6th generation iPad devices for its pilots and crews to serve as mobile EFBs to support sustainability, operational efficiency and to improve flight operations.
This agreement strengthens the existing relationship and continues to provide a document management platform with a single point of control and superior usability for end-users. In addition, DocuNet facilitates the ability to leverage structured data across their mixed fleet, to drive further efficiencies throughout their operation.
By eliminating traditional paper-based operational manuals and using DocuNet’s iOS viewer on the upgraded iPad, Loganair has significantly improved operational efficiencies across the group. This includes the immediacy of receiving real time manual updates, and the real reduction in cost as a result of iPad weight versus traditional manual flight deck documents.
Neil Hughes, Flight Operations Director at Loganair comments: “We’re delighted to continue our relationship with the Vistair team. As we look to maximise operational efficiencies even further, DocuNet offers us the perfect platform to establish consistency across our operational manuals and to manage and deliver our operational content as well as track end-user compliance.”
Leveraging the latest DocuNet technology, Vistair’s dedicated document’s team has particular expertise in the management of all fleet types including Airbus, Boeing and ATR structured documents which, for all of our clients, ensures fast delivery of OEM manual revisions across an entire fleet.
As part of the on-going partnership with Vistair, Loganair will continue to benefit from DocuNet’s future-proof technology. This involves upgrades and enhancements to make sure that the DocuNet service supports -their operational needs both now and in the future.
Ian Herbert, CEO at Vistair comments “We are incredibly proud to continue our partnership with Loganair and their outstanding team. Having worked with Loganair for over 20 years, it is great to be able to support their development and, in particular, use our expertise to enhance their flight operations.
Loganair’s evolution over the past few years has been great to see and working with them to help implement a paperless cockpit was particularly enjoyable. We look forward to continued support in the successful future.”
