OSyS Selected by Second Customer to Deploy Full-Fleet Electronic Tech Log

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optimized Systems and Solutions Inc. (OSyS) has been selected by BA CityFlyer to deploy electronic technical log (ETL) capability on the carrier’s recently-purchased fleet of 11 regional jets. BA CityFlyer, a subsidiary of British Airways and a new customer for OSyS, operates short-haul flights from London City Airport to other U.K. and European destinations.

This will be the second full-fleet ETL deployment for OSyS, an industry leader in the development and implementation of electronic flight bag (EFB) technology and applications. ThomasCook Airlines, a leading European charter airline, was the first. In both cases, OSyS successfully completed ETL trials with the respective airlines.

“As we bring the newly-acquired aircraft into service, we are committed to maximizing their value to our operations,” said Carl McNally, general manager of operations and engineering for BA CityFlyer. “OSyS’ ETL is one way we can do that. Having proven itself in our earlier trials, we know that the ETL can help us reduce costs and improve operational efficiency by providing us better data faster, reducing the overhead costs and inconvenience of paper logs, and supplying more accurate aircraft data that will allow us to improve performance.”

“The BA CityFlyer ETL fleet deployment positions OSyS as a leader in the development and implementation of electronic flight bag technology,” said Mark Goodhind, customer business director – aviation for OSyS. “Airline operators face difficult challenges in today’s economic climate. OSyS strives to provide aviation customers with the tools to reduce operational costs, maximize efficiency, and increase the availability and reliability of their aircraft. Our proven ability to deploy the ETL application across an entire fleet enables these goals to be met.”

The electronic technical log is one application of OSyS’ electronic flight bag, which integrates aircraft data with ground processes to improve aircraft availability and reduce operational costs. By replacing the paper technical logs and associated manual processes most commonly used by airlines, the ETL enables more accurate entries and data tracking, as well as cutting the time required for the logging process. In addition, the ETL provides a proactive, real-time link between flight and maintenance operations. Maintenance issues diagnosed by the cockpit crew can be transmitted to ground operations while the aircraft is in flight. With this information, maintenance operations can be prepared to initiate repairs immediately upon the aircraft’s arrival, saving time and minimizing impact to airline schedules.
